Monster of the Day #808

Well, that there is just nice.

Thanks for all the birthday wishes. I basically just took the day off and sat around the house and caught up on Doctor Who episodes and napped. So yes, it was pretty swank. And a french toast breakfast at the L&L, which those who have come in for B-Fest know is no mean treat.

Got some swag. My friend Jeff W., who tragically will be missing his first B-Fest in 20 plus years in January, sent me a nice DVD release of Octaman, as well as the fourth season of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. So that’s all gold. My friend Elena, recently moved to San Fran (and hopefully wearing flowers in her hair), sent me Haunted Horror, the latest of a simply fantastic series of utterly gorgeous hardcover tomes of reprints of old horror comics. I think this is the fifth such volume. Put at least one of these on your wish list or buy for a gift yourself, because I’m not kidding, these are some of the loveliest books you will ever see, and the price for them is crazy cheap, under $20 a volume.

    Now, that’s a Vampire!

    dead of night calls to Barnabas Collins

    “dead of night” does that mean he over slept? Any industrious vampire should be up shortly after the sun sets I would think.

  • Ericb

    Those middle of the night bathroom calls are the worst.

  • Flangepart

    How come there are no fat vampires?
    Is it the liquid diet? Must be, or old fang face would show up on radar.

    A hairy blip shows up on some old Soviet era radar sat, they load the 85mm flak with wooden shells, and soon Dracula is laying face down as Renfield pulls splinters out of his butt, and he can’t complain because Renfield is holding the pliers.

  • “I told you kids to stay out of my crypt! Damn snooping punks!”

  • Rock Baker

    Attack of the 50 Foot Vampire!

    if you look at Barnabas’ left hand just right, he looks like he has 6 fingers.

  • Chad R.

    Jeff can’t make it? Man, somebody else is going to need to rent an SUV.

  • The Rev.

    I was trying to see if I might make it out for B-Fest this year after all, but if I can’t ask Jeff what the hell that wonderful tequila he bought in 2012 was, what is the damn point?

  • GalaxyJane

    It’s Casa Noble Anejo, the black bottle. I can get the Cristal here in VA, but sadly, that’s it.

  • Ken_Begg

    No problem, looks like Binny’s carries it. So, that and Kraken, then.

  • The Rev.

    YOU KNEW ALL THIS TIME AND ARE JUST NOW TELLING ME??? Even after I lamented repeatedly over it?

    Man, you’re just mean. Girls are mean. And have cooties.

  • GalaxyJane

    I am mean, I DEFINITELY have cooties. Also I didn’t figure it out until after the last time you bitched about it :-)

  • The Rev.

    Now I’m glad you didn’t make it to T-Fest with your dumb girl cooties. GLAD, I TELLS YA!!

    Also, thank you so much. I’m going to try and find that ASAP. :D
