Chapter 12: Mystery Man (an excerpt) –

I see his eyes before I see
his teeth. I see his horns before I see his pointy jaw and sharp shoulders. I
see the burning tip of his tail before I see the slicing-black of his claws,
then the coarse rash of his demon skin wrapped around the bones of his fingers,
scaling up his wiry musculature to meet a vile snigger as diabolical a thing as
I’ve ever seen.

This creature adorns the
shadows behind my family like a second skin – then the fire dies at the cry of
the wind, scattering its kindling in a frantic hurricane that circles the
enclosure once before shooting from its top and taking its light with it…

Fresh out of the mailbox, it’s Evils of the Night! … OK. Full disclosure. This is a terrible fucking movie. Lol Nothing good here but the cheese being so thick you’ll wanna bring crackers to the viewing. And of course the highly exploited, consistently topless #80s ladies. No impressive #gore, no clever dialog or storytelling, acting so bad it hurts (and it hurts sooo gooood lofl), not purposely funny, just so dumb that it’s laughable (which I guess was on purpose), and lacking in all things artistic unless you count the 80s hair (and I’m sure some of you might). But it had some moronic elements of #scifi (which always gets me), kickass #vintage cover #art, and I was totally into 2 of the girls so… “Sold! To the sucker in the back trying to hide his face from the cameras!” I can’t, in my right mind, (debatable, I know) give this imbicilic piece of filth any higher rating than a 5/10, but it’s a 5/10 I’m happy to have in the archives. Check it out if you like mostly-nude 80’s babes and have a very flexible sense of humor and art (lol…). Catch it on Amazon prime. -z

Maybe it’s my inner Abhorash speaking, but “vampire knights” is one of the greatest aesthetics. I need to rewatch the Underworld franchise.

I’ve made a post about this before on my blog AGES ago BUT I’ll just copy/paste it here. If vampires were gonna drink anything /besides/ blood AND survive it would be whole milk. I’m a science major. Hear me out. 

Unless your vampires have to drink blood because of a supernatural curse or something, they’re more than likely biological vampires (viral, genetic, etc), right?

So,
Milk has the same basic components as blood does:
proteins, immunofactors, fats, sugars, vitamins, minerals, etc. so a vampire could potentially live off of milk, or at least be able to supplement/curb human blood feedings with milk. 

Blood transports these nutrients PLUS gases (O2 and CO2), and I’m assuming your vampire doesn’t NEED the Gas Transport function of blood. Milk more or less does the same thing (sans Gas Transport) I.E. transporting nutrients from mother to offspring because the offspring still can’t eat solid foods and drink from a cup, now can they. I’ll include Blood Nutrients and Milk Nutrient Facts below.

The only way I could see having a biological vampire and them needing blood (and blood only) is if it’s the kind of vampire that needs their old blood replaced by fresh blood to keep their organs working, but then the whole “drinking” blood doesn’t make sense, and they’d need a blood transfusion method of some kind.

Number stuff: 

blood components:
-water ~92%
-other solutes (ions, gases, nutrients, etc) ~2%
-proteins ~7%
-fats (blood can contain 200-240 mg/dl blood cholesterol. This depends on age, diet, and how recently the human has eaten)

Milk components:
-water ~85%
-proteins ~3.3%
-fat ~4.1%
-0.7% minerals

so as a vampire you may be missing out on some proteins and a bit of water, but you could make it up with a larger consumption of milk and/or supplementation of blood drinking. Cow milk is Diet Blood™

Milk: good for skeletons AND vampires!
