"Dead, your Majesty. Dead, my lords and gentlemen. Dead, Right Reverends and Wrong Reverends of every order. Dead, men and women, born with Heavenly compassion in your hearts. And dying thus around us everyday."
-Charles Dickens, Bleak HouseWhat Is Vampire: The Requiem?
Vampires: blood-drinking creatures of the night. Horrors born of darkness, whose sole purpose in life - unlife, actually - is to slake their unholy thirst on the blood of the living. Without doubt, vampires are monsters.
Monsters, though, need not always be unthinking, unfeeling terrors empty of remorse, or even compassion or other human traits. Indeed, vampires can exceed their deathless curse, themselves becoming antiheroes or even heroes.
Then again, some vampires truly remain monsters.
This is the purpose of Vampire: The Requiem. It is a Modern Gothic Storytelling game, a roleplaying game that allows you to build chronicles that explore morality through the metaphor of vampirism. In Vampire, you “play the monster,” and what you do as that monster both makes for an interesting story and might even teach you a little about your own values and those of your fellows.
Join the official Camarilla fan club's Austin Branch for their exclusive one-shot roleplaying event the evening of May 30th, 2009. Our experienced storytellers will introduce you to the horror and intrigue of a global chronicle where your actions can effect the entirety of Austin's secret Kindred society--and beyond.For More Information, Please Call Robert Martinez at

Prom night – a night that used to mean corsages, taffeta dresses and
tuxes, and dancing cheek-to-cheek to Barry Manilow….
…well not anymore!
The veil between dark and light has worn thin, and the denizens of
heaven and hell have come together to embrace the night at hand!
Please join us on the evening of Saturday – May 16th in celebration of
the entire spectrum of human nature.
The music of the evening will be
in the capable hands of DJ Void and the Gothfather – spinning your
favorites in the goth/industrial realm!
Remember – costumes are encouraged, so which side will you choose?
Are you an angel, or perhaps a demon?
Maybe a religious figure, a demigod, or an icon?
It’s up to you to decide your fate!
I’m looking forward to seeing you there!

They did a Bill Hicks tribute last night.
I'm going to try to podcast-archive it. If anyone is on a Mac and wants to "tape" it to their hard drive using Audio Hijack or something, that would rock.
In any event, I will try to cover a lot of ground between what I consider 'real' MODERN (post-2001) hc/punk and stuff that links it to the culturally subversive rock 'n roll, garage rock, etc., tradition at-large.
Time to to tighten your laces and loosen your heartstrings
for a night of loverly decadence brought to you by Elysium!
It's a very special Valentine's Day Corset Ball, so dress to
impress in your favorite corset, waist cincher, or sultry outfit!
Also - don't forget to join me that afternoon at Secret Oktober

This will be a good time to hang out, do last-minute corset
shopping, or even get some help tightening up those laces
before the big night out!
