The drink is the stink! Only joking, it's great. The wine I had last night, before writing this, was very nice. It was a lot better than last week's although I think it's the exact same one. But that's how it does. But shall we talk about vampires - and Venice?
Vampires in Venice is the episode of Doctor Who which is on tonight. But it's much more than that. It is also vampires - in Venice.
Vampires, now vampires, they are sort of people with certain special characteristics, which I will outline now. Firstly, they drink blood. This is stupid, they'd be much better off drinking red wine and writing for It Is What It Is like what I do. Their loss. Secondly, they sleep in coffins. Thirdly, they wear capes. Fourthly, they have pale faces. Yes, they're obviously goths. Not that there's anything wrong with goths. Especially the first wave ones. Not that there's anything wrong with the modern ones. Okay, yes there is, I admit it, some of them are more like sort of Limp Bizkit or Avril Lavigne fans than what I would call 'proper' goths. But that's just my old man perspective.
Also - they turn into dust if sunlight hits them - that's a bit crap, isn't it? Bit of an old design flaw there. What were they thinking? How could that ever have been thought to be a desirable attribute? It's not like they're all so hideously ugly that being turned into dust is preferable to them being seen in the cold (or warm) light of day.
What's that about anyway, the phrase 'the cold light of day'? Is that as opposed to 'the warm darkness of night'? It makes no sense.
Also, they can turn into bats. This is stupid, mainly because I suspect that the bat is of their choosing. Either they can turn into whatever they like, or at some point they had to choose and they chose the bat. Because it's sort of like them with their arms out in their capes. Pathetic. That's no basis for an animal transform choice.
And they're scared of crosses! Another design flaw. Crosses are everywhere. Why, there's on in the word 'the', one in 'there', one in 'this' - all very common words. Ridiculous!
I'm sure there's other things I can't think of - but is Venice rubbish too? We'll look at that tomorrow. Perhaps if vampires are rubbish and Venice is rubbish Vampires in Venice will be great? Let's hope so!
that's all from me for now
see you around
