Knowledge of the Systems of Unseen Perception
I have not written here for a while, mainly due to my concern that enemies within and without have cast an Astral Eye on these premesis, which is my home and my study. Having consulted with my library on the matter, and finding a rather ancient tome grandly titled Perceptio Systemata Inuise (or ‘knowledge of the systems of unseen perception’ ) I proceeded, as directed, to build wards (the materials used I will, for obvious reasons, omit from this record) for each of the entrances to my lair. Having done that I am convinced that I am unwatched and will continue this record, as it is so important to me in these times of growing rage and panic.
Media Exploitation Division’s Blood, Hearts and Minds Campaign
There are some strange goings on, it seems the Media Exploitation Division of The Shadow Council may be continuing their campaign for ‘Hearts & Minds (& Blood)’ in a cynical attempt to rehabilitate Vampires in popular consciousness. Recent efforts by the MED have brought us the ludicrous notion of sparkling vampires only concerned with the whims of teenage (human!) girls. What has happened to humanity that he is so easily tricked by such charades?
The Bram Stoker Festival, Dublin, Ireland
The campaign I talk of concerns the upcoming Bram Stoker Festival, to be held in Dublin from 26th to the 28th of October. Information is scant. Their Facebook page describes the event as simply ‘The inaugural Bram Stoker Festival will take place in Dublin city centre this upcoming October bank holiday weekend.’ and their website’s sign up form seems to be inactive. I do note however that the highlight event is a play recounting the life and death of Bram Stoker, entitled ‘Stoker’:
A Nightmarish journey into the lair of a demented mind.
An exciting and original new play by Paul Walker for Ouroboros Theatre Company concerning the life and times of one of Ireland‘s most famous authors, Bram Stoker. Using a thrilling combination of performance, lighting, live music and original text, Stoker portrays the fascinating world of Bram Stoker‘s life and legacy: The inspiration behind his world famous novel Dracula, his life-long friendship with Henry Irving and his bitter rivalry with Oscar Wilde.
It is the writer‘s last night amongst the living, shadows are forming, memories being re-imagined. Weaving together varying strands of his life, writer Paul Walker uses the rhythm and sounds of Victoriana blended with special effects and an original score to lead us on a journey exploring the personality of one of Dublin’s most influential yet underrated writers.
In the centenary of Bram Stoker‘s death, Ouroboros Theatre‘s production of Stoker will take place in Stoker‘s alma mater, Trinity College Dublin, at the Samuel Beckett Theatre.
Trinity College, The Beating Heart of the Shadow Council
I note that the play will be staged in Trinity College! The very heart of The Shadow Council! Is this a sign, or are the crusty old Vampires getting lazy in their old age?
One can only assume that this is another attempt by the MED to promote myths and ignorance of the real Vampire menace from the ‘ravings of that demented Irishman’. We have recounted before how the Vampire forces exploit humanity’s love for a good story by promoting useless defences such as garlic and mirrors (!).
As always, hunt wisely, carry effective weaponry, and watch out for spies.
