Is there room in the Para/Crypto/Fortean world for a gun-toting, paranoid, bipolar, opinionated bastard? A lonely romantic in search of his lost soul? A knight, Samurai, gunslinger, born in the wrong century? A self-destructive, doom-driven survivor seeking redemption? A heavy drinking gonzo outlaw cryptozoologist whose ego is exceeded only by his libido?
No, there isn't. That's why I'm here...

"Vampires" In New Zealand

A trio of utes have been charged in a "Vampire"-style attack in New Zealand.
I'm sure most members of the Vampire-wannabe community will attempt to distance themselves from these three examples of robust mental health. My unabashed hatred for the "Vampire", "Vampyre", "Sanguinarian" community notwithstanding, I won't be painting this incident as some kind of warning, or a sign that the VWs pose a threat to those of us of a different delusional persuasion.
As a gun owner, I hate to see reports of firearm violence (or carelessness, or stupidity), since it casts a poor reflection on gun owners in general. As a sword enthusiast, it ticks me off no end when some loony-toon decides he's Blade, or Duncan (or Connor) McLeod from "Highlander" and attacks someone with a "sam-oo-rye" sword.
I'm mature and wise (read: old!) enough to understand that one cannot pass judgement on a community, or race, nationality, whatever, based on the actions of a few members.
Of course, I still can't stand the so-called, self-proclaimed "Real" Vampires of the world for the simple fact that they ARE NOT VAMPIRES!

Dude, your reality is biting (pun intended). Yeah, I'm all worried about people portraying Klingons poorly and speaking the language incorrectly. It casts a bad light on the Klingons from the planet in fictional television, that is.
