I think it is wise to pay the piper in advance. Theatres Des Vampires is my favorite vampire band. This is their latest album. Their lyrics best capture the soul of the vampire to me.
'Christina' is the first single and videoclip taken from the new Theatres Des Vampires album, 'In Nomine Sanguinis' – was released on November 19th 2021 (Night of Bloodmoon as seen in my portfolio 26th uploaded picture.) by Scarlet Records.
""Christina" is the character taken from the Francis Marion Crawford novel 'For the Blood is The Life' (1880) – a tormented vampire that appears everynight under the moonlight. I imagined her dancing on her grave with sensual and horrorific movements and the dark colors of the video really want to recreate this vampiric atmosphere."
Video directed, filmed and edited by Riccardo Sabetti (This Eternal Decay/Spiral69)
THEATRES DES VAMPIRES is:
Sonya Scarlet - vocals
Zimon Lijoi - bass
Gabriel Valerio - drums
Greetings. Please, call me Tree. I'm a rather tall guy at 6'8", 240lbs., spend a lot of quality time in nature. I don't put much thought into astrology but I know many do so you can tell a lot about me from my sign. I do believe in fate so if you pay attention to patterns in nature then you are bound to see things of a divinatory nature as patterns happen in cycles.
So you have access to my favorite music and some art. Besides what one can glean through psychic senses that's about all one can stimulate via the internet. But if you were to meet me in person then you would smell burnt white sage with a hint of coffee, WD-40, paint and old blood to stimulate your senses more.
I have found having dyslexia that shapes a constant focus to overcome the disability a defining quality to my character and coincidentally very common denominator for members of this site.
It's our experiences in life as well as our DNA that shape us uniquely especially during our formative years of youth. I grew up as an only child and Army brat in many places around bases stateside and in Europe. Originally I'm from a back woods area in the Appalachian mountains. My father also dyslexic but grew up quite different than me as the oldest in a large family. A government agent that carried the wounds of the Vietnam war and transferred quite a bit to me his only child as those with similar focus can express.
You see after WW2 and Korea The U.S. was experimenting with new training techniques in the Vietnam era. Movies like Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket" expressed this sentiment well to me. But breaking someone down (Brainwashing) and building them up as a fighting force trained to kill on command without question at the young age of 17 is something quite different to deal with with a heightened focus your entire childhood with a vet that suffers PTSD. It's taken me a while to reach a balance and have had quite a colorful life.
Besides competing in martial arts I wasn't into sports unless you think hunting, fishing and trapping are. I don't. I think it's a big part of who we are as a species and it was a means for our ancestors to survive. Now we need some catharsis in the society we live in in modern times to become whole in this department. Thus, to my understanding we have all the spiritual dynamics that develop to those that look deeper in themselves and the cosmos for wholeness. So the subcultures of a kindred community form apart from the majority in society that find a catharsis in the popular religions, arts and sports.
I'm kind of a DIY jack of all trades master of none. To name a few: Served a bit in the military as a paratrooper; Did some security work for a crew as a career criminal; Spent the 90's incarcerated worked there as: Teacher's aide, Librarian, and in Landscaping/Horticulture; Then after released with the work ethic that was instilled in me in my youth built myself up to a foreman in the steel industry. I'm semi-retired now and just work when I choose. I think it's great to take pride in your work as many do when comparing themselves to others but think you should take equal pride in any endeavor you apply yourself in or you'll be broken in retirement.
As far as education goes I have a H.S. diploma and vocational degrees in Electronics, Horticulture, and Business. Besides that I'm self taught in many things. Chiefly in knowing myself which I think is very important.
I have studied many traditions with empirical results but they never seemed to fit me very well. It's something about the scrutiny that was instilled in me via my strict youth and dyslexic attention to detail. So relative to my unique life's experiences I found my own spirituality. I think I'm best understood as a human occultist.
In every age there are new challenges to face with many of the same elemental forces of nature. With every new adaptation new problems arise to overcome. There has always been the spirituality that tends toward the so called catabolic forces just in new permutations. So it is now some of us shaped by our unique experiences are attuned to such in this incarnation as it is just the cycle our souls are in. Being a vampire is just an identity as an aspect of humanity to think abstractly and create tools. Like any spirituality it is more like building a radio able to detect invisible radio waves but in this case subtle energies the mind creates to identify with the cosmos. What one gains through being embraced from a vampire is not much different than rituals in an occult lodge. It's just the ritual tools are flesh, blood and soul for an occultist identifying with the vampire.
I had a significant experience back in 1993 with a terrifying holy occult being (strigoi divinity) that changed my life. I don't anthropomorphize and believe in objective divine beings but still they do obviously impact our lives. I think they are just subjective creations of the mind that form in the dynamic of the brain's inner workings to give form to the cosmos in the astral plane aka Maya(illusion). They may take form outside of ourselves especially in shared belief structures as much as one can astrally project outside their body and travel beyond space and time. This is where ghosts come from to my understanding. Not disembodied beings after death but just power of their minds when they are alive. If one is a medium and they are conscious ghosts it may be wise to ask them what date they think it is like a doctor asks when determining mental health. But beyond that veil I do believe there is an absolute truth best understood through the proper understanding of the Elements of the wise and the polarities that form between their dynamic. As an occultist I may use divine beings to empower more of my will as they correspond to human experience especially as a social creature. I think many get lost in them being objectively real but to me it's just creations of physical brains throughout eternity that one can tap as we are all bound by the same eternal spirit on a level. Like the image link below set to Lilith Queen of the Dead. It is age restrictive but if you are an adult you can activate link and watch the video on You Tube. I have found the undulating body of a female to be much better for inducing a trance state than any swinging pendulum or dancing tongues of flame.
So I first came to this site in 2010. I just happened to be surfing the web and came upon it. I was looking for people of like mind. Now to my understanding most that you would identify with being real vampires are those that follow teachings by the occult movement that gained popularity in the 90's like from occult authors Father Sebastiaan or Michelle Belanger. I have only recently read their works to better understand what I'm dealing with here on V.R.. I have found some similarities but what makes me identify with the vampire is different. It is just a beginning to compare something in a dualism (good/evil, positive/negative, male/famale etc.) to give it definition in contrast but then you should continue the comparison. Thus, there is an honorable and dishonorable aspect to both the light and dark and a refinement that continues in each new permutation from each. In my understanding neither has dominance over the other that is another permutation and the night and day both have dominating aspects to the subjugated aspects of their opposites. Like there are strong dominant females as much as their are weak males. One isn't just generally dominant over the other period. I associate the vampire as a nocturnal hunter usually like the vampire bat. There is honor in the night for those creatures that see well in it. I have been taught from my occult sources to orient myself through understanding the true nature of the elements in the cosmos. So much goes unnoticed by creatures with habits forged by a stereoscopic focus.
I consider myself heterosexual as only females turn me on unless you think being attracted to some T-Girls and Trans Women to be queer then I'll accept that. I have been taught to respect a persons gender choice and sexuality. Yes, some are of a degenerative nature but that doesn't make them any less important-especially in the modern overpopulated world.
Besides flirting I don't cyber and especially on this site that's open to youth. It's just inappropriate even if your identity is confirmed as it sets a bad example to youth or sexual predators that use this site. There are more appropriate adult sites for this if you want to indulge in it.
I am not looking for a relationship but of the vampiric kind. I've been in love in my past and know it is quite different than what a vampiric state of mind has. To me that's not a love relationship though it may involve sexual dynamics.
I am a DIY (Do It Yourselfer) and try to do anything I can myself. Right here and now it extends to expressing myself on the internet by my standards. Chiefly, I try to do this with good SEO that to me is the true measure of any work's worth on the internet.
I like to hike in the woods and park districts-especially at night with few people around. I associate quadcopter drones as my gargoyles. I've incorporated photography and video recording into my spirituality so has become a past-time as well.
In a blue moon I play video games. My all time favorite is Skyrim. I have found online games like WOW and ESO too redundant, however, I'm counting on Vampire: The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 video game to draw in a crowd to the vampire subculture as media hypes tend to do; plus having a guild online there my intuition tells me will be important. Sadly, It keeps getting pushed back in launch date.
I used to play tabletop RPG's too and was usually the Dungeon Master as I fit that role well and play through my NPC's letting the dice rolls make things fun. I used to read a lot but any media doesn't really appeal to me and I find myself rewriting how I would have things turn out. But if I had to choose a vampire favorite then it would be the Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris. However, I would have ended it with her getting with Eric instead of Sam ultimately reaching reign as a vampire queen herself giving her life in service to her state.
It can be hard choosing an actual favorite as I find I like and dislike different things for many reasons but overall If I were to choose a favorite vampire movie it would be the comedy SUCK.
As I've related above it's hard to judge a favorite. I like the style of the movie set with many musicians starring in it and the adventures of a band as it tours the U.S. and Canada and their relationship with the vampire. It's a movie I can watch again and again over the years and still enjoy.
I have quite a personal way of navigating through this site. I have to be true to myself. I am in a state of change both with adding new things as well in decay. I do tend to take my time so once I do add something new it tends to remain for a while being appreciated. Only working with one profile I'm forced to only share my favorites of something as I think a profile should be brief. But I'm often updating it so there will be subtle changes.
Want to know more about me read my journal...if you earn the keys by taking the time to get to know me in messaging and making comments in journal when they're open. I think many just delude themselves in their interactions here so I put obstacles up to separate the real ones. I may post an entry openly to public but if it has a video embedded then I'll encrypt when I post another video. Having too many videos posted on the same page is a waste of energy to me as your computer has to load it all in the cache. But if it's encrypted then it will only load it at that time it's decrypted. Sometimes I come on mobile and wasting my soft data cap for the month is not economical to me. But usually I encrypt my journal for those that take the time to build relations properly.
So many favor journal or add as friend which is an easy click of a button but then don't spend the time it takes to build a friendship. I don't give a fuck about the score I want real relationships and would rather have none than fakes. So my adds and journal favoring are in a state of flux for those that I interact with constantly. Works not unlike how society and stream bonus works for those who are active. So if you are actively on V.R. interacting with me you'll maintain that status with me as being a friend and favoring your journal if you have one and use often. I don't do tit for tat on anything. Some come and rate you a 10, add you as a friend then favor your journal all to get the like in return to increase their score. I do things only because I choose to not out of obligation to return the favor. I treat the add as a friend as a like button and only means you are merely above tolerable so don't read too much into it. I tend to see a lot in a person and when interacting will see all the dirty secrets you wish not to be seen. So that level of tolerance will likely move up and down as we interact. I have developed quite a taste for blood as a result of this scrutiny and sublimate all the hatred into a bite which is way for me to be whole.
I have a high and brutal standard when it comes to rating. I really don't think I should subject anyone to that unless they ask for it. Beyond that my opinion of my profile rating is all that really matters and I try to improve on it without taking away from what I find exceptional about it. So, you want a rating from me you have to ask for it. You probably won't like it.
In my spirituality and identity as a vampire the chief aspect of it to me is being a hunter. The thrill of it as well the prestige. As far as this site goes that means how many I'm responsible for bringing as referrals. No other bonus really matters to me or is just in support of this. Until I have my own coven and get away from the pathetic one I'm in I won't work on bringing others here. But when I have my own and a place for them that would be my responsibility to provide for them then I'll work on it personally. Since I don't level other bonuses it makes my levelling quite hard and slow. As an occultist my favorite tool to use is the journal and is where I spend most of my time to level base score. Since you have taken the time to read through my profile I'll give you an encryption key to many of my journal entries: Video Key = Videodrome
Till Death Do Us Part
As fate or Murphy's Law would have it Vampire Rave was my first social network and has remained my only one. I'll remain loyal until I die or am removed. I do what I can to help support it as I like what Cancer created and has a lot of potential to me. It is a service for many to use with interests in the vampire subculture and gothic fiction. There are many different kinds of people that use it their own way. I mainly just want to express what being a vampire means to me as an occultist in my unique mortal life. It is quite evident after spending years off and on this site that what being a vampire means is quite different than others here so I just want to express this in a way suitable to dynamics of the site. In my understanding it is mortality that makes something priceless with a limited life and being one of a kind. If it lasted forever and was shared by others it would lose value. So I just have an awakened state of consciousness for now in the waxing and waning cycles of nature. I think everyone is bound by the same eternal spirit but not all are aware of it. That is all one gains when turned is a certainty in that regard. So I've done the calling in the ether now like a hunter that mimicked an animals mating call I need only wait till they arrive so I can embrace them as fate intended.
