damselesque:

I have loved everything George A. Romero has ever done. And I thought I’d seen all his movies… but I was wrong!

Martin is his vampire movie, and also his favorite. It’s a strange tale of a young man who believes he’s a vampire. Maybe he is, maybe he’s not? But he *is* a killer, who likes injecting his female victims with drugs, taking off their clothes, and slitting their wrists to drink their blood. He moves to a small Pennsylvania town to live with an elderly relative, who’s convinced he’s Nosferatu.

This movie’s kind of artsy, jumping between Martin’s fantasy world and reality. But if you can stay with it, it’s a great horror movie.

So, if you enjoy the artistic stylings of George A. Romero, vampires, and super dysfunctional families, you might just like this flick.

Hotel motel
Make you wanna cry
Lady do the hard sell
Know the reason why
Gettin’ old
Gettin’ grey
Gettin’ ripped off
Underpaid
Gettin’ sold
Second hand
That’s how it goes
Playin’ in a band

Been there, done that (is that still a saying?).

They say that you play too loud,
Well, baby, that’s tough!
They say that you got too much,
Can’t get enough!
They tell you that you look the fool,
And, baby, I’m a fool for you!
They say that your mind’s diseased,
Shake your stuff!

Rock ‘n’ roll = excess.

And it came to pass
That rock ‘n’ roll was born
All across the land every rockin’ band
Was blowin’ up a storm
And the guitar man got famous
The business man got rich
And in every bar there was a superstar
With a seven year itch
There was fifteen million fingers
Learnin’ how to play
And you could hear the fingers pickin’
And this is what they had to say

Let there be light, sound, drums, ‘n guitar, ah

Let there be rock

The mythology of rock ‘n’ roll. And one of the greatest live rock perfomances ever.

Heavy decibels are playing on my guitar
We got vibrations coming up from the floor
We’re just listening to the rock that’s giving too much noise
Are you deaf, you wanna hear some more

Ignore the tinnitus, I always wanna hear some more.

If I could stick a knife in my heart 
Suicide right on stage 
Would it be enough for your teenage lust 
Would it help to ease the pain? Ease your brain? 

If I could dig down deep in my heart 
Feelings would flood on the page 
Would it satisfy ya, would it slide on by ya 
Would ya think the boy’s insane? He’s insane
