I am so tired right now, I think all I can manage is a Wuss-out Wednesday post. It is Wednesday, right? Earlier today, I was wishing it was Thursday. Then I reminded myself of a morning I got out of my car and thought, “Why can’t it be Thursday instead of Wednesday?” then I thought, “You idiot, it’s Tuesday.” I may have shared that memory before, but I still think it is funny.
This is what I immediately thought of at the time. This is Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff. I never knew which movie the shot is from but I believe that is not the original dialog. I used it as my Facebook cover photo for a while. Now I realize I should not have put it in a Wuss-out Wednesday post but in a Tired Tuesday post. Which just goes to show you how often I do the wrong thing. But now that I’ve put in a photo, I’d kind of like to put in a couple more. I wonder what I can find.
Speaking of favorite ghouls, who doesn’t love Vincent Price? This is from House of Wax, one of my go-to horror movies. Price is in love with his Marie Antoinette. How Pygmalion of him. Before the film can really explore the creepiness of that infatuation, the place goes up in flames and Price becomes a villain, deformed in body and spirit. I don’t know where I’m going with that. Perhaps the next time I watch the movie, I’ll write a scholarly essay on Hollywood’s missed opportunities.
Just to finish out the theme of favorite ghouls, here is a photo Steven has shared on Facebook so it was in our downloads. Christopher Lee, Vincent Price and John Carradine. At least, Steven says it is John Carradine. I had thought it was Peter Cushing. How classless is that, that I’m going to publish this without making sure of my information. That’s how I roll on Wuss-out Wednesday.
