Written by Joe "Producer Joe" Gasmann | Thursday, 24 October 2013 13:51 |

ArtPrize V was as lame and limp as the plump West Michigan gypsies that jammed our streets like the asses that pack their husky Wranglers.

Written by Shelby Pendowski | Wednesday, 16 October 2013 10:39 |

Before glittering diamond skin, vegetarianism and werewolf hatred came around to screw up classic lore, vampires owned the night, seducing countless victims. In 1897, Bram Stoker sculpted the first iconic vampire: Dracula.

In Stoker's novel, Dracula possessed all the legend qualities – lust for human blood, the ability to fly as a bat, repelled by garlic, allergic to the sun – to display this horror character.
