I've been spending plenty of time watching old horror movies that I've always wanted to watch but never got around to it. Some of them were Rosemarys baby, the 1950s version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, and just finished the trilogy of the Boris Karloff Frankenstein movies from the 30s. Those were brilliant. Hopefully tonight I'll finally get to watch Dracula, the 1930s one with Bela Lugosi. I'll admit I've actually been avoiding that one for years. I grew up with the Christopher Lee Dracula movies and for me there is no way anyone will match the intensity that he had when playing that role. Trying to catch up with a bunch of other Vincent Price movies I never got to see. It was always tricky getting movies like these while growing up. Only since internet stores popping up has it finally become an option. Our video stores had fuck all. Our cinemas? Forget them. Useless.
Earlier in the day I heard a loud THUMP! A dove had smashed itself into my window. Went outside and the thing was pretty much out cold. I sat with it a little to see how badly it was hurt but it seemed fine. Its legs and wings could move, and most importantly its neck. It lay there for a few minutes with its eyes just fluttering. After about 5min it finally sat up and started to focus on things. I waited for about an hour before it finally flew off. Didnt want any hawks or whatever grabbing it. So I did my good deed for the day.
