Jared Leto is a vampire.
This is a fact. How else could he look the way he does at 47?!?! I imagine him in some swanky, smoke-filled, hotel just surrounded by models, half drained of their blood. He has that kind of vibe. He’s like a human venus flytrap, alluring but also reeks of danger.
I don’t particularly care for him, for all his good looks he seemingly has no personal charm and doesn’t seem like he’s well-liked by anyone around him. His film choices are also interesting, he takes on roles that seem to aggravate people more than they feed into any fanbase [ie: Dallas Buyers Club, Suicide Squad]. I don’t particularly understand his fan base (does he have one?) but I’ll probably be watching the Morbius movie, especially if he looks like THIS in the movie, I’ll be there.

Horror Scholar Journal Vol. 1 is the brainchild of Celia Abate, a journalist who wanted a space for media academics to post their works. Not satisfied with the traditional, mainstream methods of getting her work to the masses and seeing other writers face rejection despite the quality of their work, she set out to make her own publication.
Last week I was interviewed for Mage: The Podcast with my collaborators on a table top RPG book that we wrote together. It is called Gods and Monsters and it’s a compendium for the World of Darkness books. I was brought in to write the pieces on African/loa/voodoo creatures and deities. It was such an honor to be in on this project and I’m really happy with the results. Please take a listen to our interview and if you play the book, please let me know what you thought!
It’s a simple Hollywood story, really. Boy meets girl. Boy has a secret. Boy reveals secret to girl. Boy breaks up with girl “to protect her.” Girl starts dating someone else (someone worse than boy—she’s not really that into it). Boy gets jealous and messes everything up. Boy gets back together with girl because they’re “endgame.”
