Everything from HookTube/YouTube embeds to WebMs & mp4 and everything else music related – not necessarily sapphic in nature, though that is a big plus.

Listening to t.A.T.u. is a guilty pleasure of mine – there are quite a few witch house remixes of their songs worth checking out too. The music video to All The Things She Said is probably the most famous lesbian-themed music video of all time.

Just watched Tenebre by Dario Argento. I was expecting kino but it being sapphic kino made it even better. I watched the Italian dub even though the original version is in English, Italian has a certain charm that I can't let go of, it puts me in a "giallo mood" (and it made the opening sequence where the book is being read a lot better, because it matches the contents). Also thanks to doing that I caught a joke that the people in charge of making the subtitles missed and mistranslated (a snarky remark about girls with sapphic inclinations).

I'm still owing you guys a review of Thelma but I'm glad I accidentally watched something relevant to the board.

I liked it a lot, albeit not as much as Profondo Rosso. The camerawork is superb, I loved that tracking shot. Didn't really add anything to the story but it was a delight to watch.

I figured out the killer or should I say the killers at certain points but then I found myself chasing red herrings.

Is it me or does the song Lesbo, video related, have a strong resemblance to Message in a Bottle by The Police? The latter had been released three years before the film, to add to the suspicion. I wrote this before the rest but decided to keep it, because if I remove it then the rest stops making sense.

I noticed the cowbell and decided to listen to Don't Fear the Reaper, experiencing a huge déjà vu with the imagery although I had skimmed the music thread, I had searched for "Goblin" too and had found nothing, did a search on the board for the word "cowbell" and bingo!

Here were my posts: >>1257 , >>1259 . Interesting how memory works, and very fitting in a giallo discussion, in particular one about Argento's work.

Interestingly enough, like that time I did a search to see if anyone had noticed the resemblance, this time between Message in a Bottle and Don't Fear the Reaper, and there's tons of results. Not so much for Lesbo against Message in a Bottle though.

I think it was definitely one of the highlights of our film club. Worth watching.

>I figured out the killer or should I say the killers at certain points but then I found myself chasing red herrings.

I watched it on yt late one night and completely didn't figure it out at all. Thought I knew and then didn't know and so on until the end when i was taken aback.

>Is it me or does the song Lesbo, video related, have a strong resemblance to Message in a Bottle by The Police?

By Jove you are right! Incredibly similar.

>Some last comments: the "creep camera" is incredibly effective, along with the heavy breathing.

>Uncomfortable as hell to watch.

Yes, like the scene in the public square.

>I liked this film a lot, but I still rank Profondo rosso higher. It's so inspired and original it makes this one seem generic in comparison.

I'd have to watch them back to back again to make a determination. They both had those amazing endings.

There is nothing new under the sun.

Hot webm.

>I think it was definitely one of the highlights of our film club. Worth watching.

I plan to do it, it's just that there's so much to watch and so little time that I keep having to choose between things I want to watch. And the /tv/ club hasn't been helping things in that regard. Speaking of clubs, how are you doing with Twin Peaks?

>Thought I knew and then didn't know and so on until the end when i was taken aback.

Same thing with me, that's what I meant by figuring them out and then find myself chasing red herrings. You arrive to the correct conclusion and then Argento gives you a false lead that makes you discard it.

Something that adds to that confusion is that the flashbacks seem to pertain to the razor murderer but they're actually from the axe murderer.

>By Jove you are right! Incredibly similar.

I think Blue Öyster Cult's song is the source of both though. Interesting how depending on when someone hears a song it can resemble different ones that also resemble each other.

>Yes, like the scene in the public square.

Or like in the flashbacks, going through the vegetation. When chasing Maria too.

Also I checked out the English version and it doesn't hold a candle to the Italian one in terms of creepiness, the Italian one sounds aroused in anticipation of the kill, not only threatening.

>I'd have to watch them back to back again to make a determination. They both had those amazing endings.

I like the theme of unreliable memory in both. It's a staple of Argento's work and enables seemingly contradictory realities to coexist. The subjective perception against the objective reality, it's a terrific metaphysical question that Argento delves into. It's the same question Plato addressed with the Allegory of the Cave, this time with blood and sleaze, and making you experience it rather than just imagine it as a thought experiment.

http://heimskringla.no/wiki/Main_Page contains a lot of the source texts (the Eddas in particular) in the original Old Norse, and often in the Scandinavian translations as well. There are also scholary texts, and sagas.

The Internet Archive is another great source for free texts on the topics: https://archive.org/

There is a very interesting YouTube series by Maria Kvilhaug that deals with the symbolism of the poems and myths in great detail, and I highly recommend giving her videos a watch. In particular she stresses the importance of translating the names of characters and places – left in their Old Norse (or Anglicised) form they mean nothing to a modern, non-Old Norse speaking reader. The translation of the names are extremely important if we want to understand what the poems and the myths are really telling us.

https://hooktube.com/watch?v=evE6aLg-_Q8&index=1&list=PLxDBGYdDmm2n7-nYh49d9qMJRZB8Z1qSa

One thing that most people don’t know about Norse mythology is that the Norsemen believed in a form of reincarnation/rebirth. It was custom that the oldest son would be given his paternal grandfather’s name, the second oldest son the name of his maternal grandfather, and similarly with the daughters; the oldest daughter would be named after her paternal grandmother, and the second oldest after her maternal grandmother. This would allow the spirit of the ancestors live on through their bloodline. In the sagas there are mentions of characters born with the same marks upon their body as their ancestors were inflicted with. In the Helgi poems in the Elder Edda, it is said that the two main characters are reborn and fall in love again and again – at least three times.

Yeah, for some reason I often get Rogan’s videos in the recommended list/sidebar. They (you know who) probably kept it from trending because Jones was being interviewed. The guy’s been de-personed online by every major tech company, and he tends to fight for free speech, and talk about censorship, so no wonder they wanted to keep it from trending.

Just saw that Styxhexenhammer666 did a video on the Rogan/Jones vid. I agree with his take on Jones; he puts on a show, but I genuinely believe he is earnest about most of it (gun rights, free speech, globalism, mudslime/nigger immigration, &c.)

I don't subscribe to Alex Jones, I don't buy shit from his filtermerchant shop, but Styx is a literal e-celeb; a content aggregator for unironic alt-righters. He has almost nothing of value to say. Millions of other people hold the opinion that Alex Jones is just a showman. Millions of people have already thought, repeated, posted online, etc., the entirety of the opinions that Styx expressed in that video.

<oh by the way that's why i prefer to have the home office so i can keep it simple and independent

Alright, consider me triggered. What a fucking stupidly revealing comment. For someone who collects money for "thinkin bout staf" he has CLEARLY never considered who or what paved the way for him being able to do what he does. He is exactly like the SJWs who simply assume that peaceful societies, sidewalks, buildings, and happy people sprout from the ground from nothing. Anybody can stand on a soapbox on a streetcorner, and that's essentially what Styx is doing, he was just handed an enormous microphone - but by whom?

You tell me: In an age where everyone was what we would call bluepilled, trust in the media was massive and uncontested, and only (((globalists))) were able to disseminate information widely and effectively, who was the first person to seriously attempt to match the production values of the MSM in order to get people to actually listen to the message? I'll give you a hint: It was fucking Alex Jones. So for Styx to go and say in his subtext that he's more impartial, that is only because the "moral" choice of having no sponsors, in this instance, is also the laziest choice, and the fact that "impartiality" is the easiest option is due to people like Alex Jones

I don't give a fuck if Alex Jones doesn't believe ANY of what he talks about - the fact is that he is OBJECTIVELY a pioneer for the sharing of unkosher information, and for some uninsightful lazy cuck to sit back in the chair he jerks off in and talk into a $20 webcam while looking down on a man who has literalPost too long.

IMHO the only weak links in the series are The Evil of Frankenstein & Frankenstein Created Woman. While The Horror of Frankenstein is often considered a letdown, due to the lack of Cushing as the baron, and the very dark comedic tone, it is a really enjoyable film, and one of the underappreciated Hammer films.

The two first films are fantastic, and Brides is perhaps more enjoyable than the original despite Lee not returning as count Dracula.

>Oh my gosh he was the hero!

I could have sworn he played Baron von Hartog who narrates the opening and beheads one of the Karnstein’ vampiresses, and later teams up to help them defeat Carmilla… But looking at it now, I see that I was completely mistaken!

In The Horror of Frankenstein he plays one of Baron Frankenstein’s childhood chums, who we see later as a grown-up as a Lieutenant in the police, and investigates cases of mutilation of cadavers and body snatching following the Baron’s return from medical school…

>It was ok I guess, kind of like a TV movie. I remember thinking the first story was kind of boring but the stories became more engaging as they went along.

I would probably watch anything with Cushing in it, and Joan Collins is an added bonus. I looked it up and I recognised one still from the old EC horror comics: the razor blades on the walls of a labyrinth. In the comic I believe they used nails instead, and as the crook was trying to make his way thu the labyrinth, the lights were turned off, and they released the (starved) hounds after him.

I just finished the second episode, The Thirteenth Reunion. Gotta say, I was not at all sure where they were going with this one. At first it reminded me a lot of an EC Comics horror story which dealt with a new and revolutionary cure for obesity (which has some truly horrible consequences), but then the car accident happened, and I was in the dark.

Speaking of the car accident scene… it reminded me a lot of the two scenes in Beyond the Black Rainbow & Mandy, only here he should tell himself “You’re not doing so good” instead.

It was unintentionally funny how the MacGuffin was sending Ruth to lose some weight! That Scottish personal trainer though… he was good. I doubt they would have made this in the current year, when ‘fat shaming’ is a thing to worry about.

When Ruth crashes the dinner party and she gets talking to the other woman, I feel it would have been better to keep the reveal that they were all survivors of the plane accident (presumably based on the 1972 Andes flight accident involving Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571) till they were actually seated at the table; then we could have had Ruth’s shocked and disgusted reaction while the others are somewhat bemused by her reaction and go on with their meal as she takes off. The way it is in the episode it goes on for too long – the moment Joan mentioned them all being survivors of the plane accident I knew what was going on, but they kept it going for too long.

It seems like a pretty convoluted plan to carry on their reunions tbh.

I recognised several familiar faces in this episode:

Dinah Sheridan – there is something really familiar about her, but looking up her lengthy filmography, the only thing I could have recognised her from would be an episode of Keeping Up Appearances.

Warren Clarke, known for a lot of roles; he’s been in A Clockwork Orange, Firefox, Dalziel and Pascoe, though I probably recognised him from Bleak House (2005)

John Louis Mansi, best known for playing Gestapo agent Engelbert von Smallhausen in ’Allo ’Allo! He was also in Tales from the Crypt (1972)! It all ties together, Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

That is sad indeed. But at least it's written that he had good family and neighbours.

I took it as telling me that my current suffering at that time was superficial and I'd be fine. I love having dreams where I meet or interact with these things, but they are few and far between.

>but then most dreams are just a mishmash of feelings, ideas and memories we have been thinking about recently.

That's why it stuck out. I had not at all been thinking of anything to do with the Green Man or otherworldy stuff. It was an odd dream.

>I guess your answer begs the question: Is she really into you, or just after your blood?

Well, I guess as long as I stick to the moving image I should be safe.

>That is one of the interpretations of the story in Låt den rätte komma in aka Let the Right One In (2008)

I never ended up watching this or the remake. The idea of watching children vampires doesn't appeal to me. Everyone says the original is great though. Do you think I should watch it?

>Btw., do you think vampire Willow from the alternate dimension would be a vampire witch?

Vampire Willow appeared to be dumber than a box of hammers. I doubt she would have the discipline to learn witchcraft. Then again, with all that time on her hands maybe at some point in the future she would pick it up.

Idunno, man. I would probably consider ending it if I ended up like that. Not being able to outside during daytime, blinded & horribly disfigured, and missing one arm…

>I love having dreams where I meet or interact with these things, but they are few and far between.

Aye. I would love to be able to achieve lucid dreaming ‘on command’… It just sounds so interesting to be able to have (some) control of your dreams.

>Well, I guess as long as I stick to the moving image I should be safe.

2D vampiresses? Safe but boring tbh.

>I never ended up watching this or the remake. The idea of watching children vampires doesn't appeal to me. Everyone says the original is great though. Do you think I should watch it?

I really liked the original film. Unlike a lot of vampire films it manages to stay somewhat grounded in reality in terms of tone and characters. It is also surprisingly dark. In a way it is a dark romance about two outsiders who find each other. Then there is the alternate view that Eli is manipulating Oskar into replacing Håkan, her previous ‘helper’.

I think Eli genuinely cared for Håkan, and that they met when he was about the same age as her – as the years passed though, I think they grew apart – he became older while she stays forever young. Unless Eli ends up turning Oskar at some point history will likely repeat itself…

Like Fucking Åmål it feels a lot more real and honest in a way that English speaking films do for me. The snowy setting also helps.

If you do get around to seeing it, I’d like to hear your take on the ending and Oskar & Eli’s relationship – and what you think of Eli not being like other girls.

I’ve got the film on DVD, and there is an audio commentary track with the director & writer – the writer also wrote the book the film is based onPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Yes me too. Every time I realise I'm dreaming, I wake up. Have never got the hang of lucid dreaming. Not really. I guess I can kind of direct how I want things to go sometimes but not with much conscious awareness.

>2D vampiresses? Safe but boring tbh.

True. I imagine if it were anything but 2D, I would either freeze, panic, or channel Buffy. Not very sexy.

What would you do if you met a witch? Wouldn't you be worried you could be turned into a toad or completely removed from existence (ala Thelma)?

It’s like the brain is telling us ‘no fun allowed’ and overrides our efforts. Wonder if there are any techniques you can try to train yourself so that doesn’t happen, or if there’s been any serious research into lucid dreaming.

>I imagine if it were anything but 2D, I would either freeze, panic, or channel Buffy. Not very sexy.

Depends on how you’d find out though, right? What if you met them, got to know them, and only after a while, when you’d already started liking them, she drops the bomb and comes clean about being a bloodsucker?

Not a fan of the OP bloodsuckers myself – superhuman strength, ability to fly, mind control/hypnotism, can turn into a bat/wolf/mist/cat… The idea that she would use seduction to lure in victims is much more interesting and appealing.

>What would you do if you met a witch? Wouldn't you be worried you could be turned into a toad or completely removed from existence (ala Thelma)?

If I knew from the get-go, I’d probably be a tad worried and try to distance myself, based on what I’ve seen of witches in pop culture. First I’d assume she was a LARPer though – a New Age Wiccan or something. A witch might fuck you up real bad if you got on her bad side…

<“As far as I knew, there was only me and a woman called Sappho,” the critic Judith Butler once remarked.

Wew lad. Must be hard to live with such a humble nature as this.

<Four centuries after her death, scholars at the Library of Alexandria catalogued nine “books”—papyrus scrolls—of Sappho’s poems, organized primarily by metre.

This still kills me, thinking about everything that was lost there.

On the question of how personal her poems were; I imagine that, if she was writing poems referencing her brothers by name then, at least some of her poems were personal.

IK, just all this knowledge about the ancient Greek world gone forever, with only some remnants surviving. Sad!

>On the question of how personal her poems were; I imagine that, if she was writing poems referencing her brothers by name then, at least some of her poems were personal.

I looked up one of her devotees from Roman times, the poet Catullus, and his article says that he wrote chiefly in the neoteric style of poetry, which is about personal life rather than classical heroes.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catullus

Sappho isn’t listed as one of the Greek Neoterics, but she ought to, since epic poetry about heroes was the norm.

<Their poetry is characterized by tight construction, a playful use of genre, punning, and complex allusions.

Sound like how her work is described. Plus she had her own system of meter didn't she?

Wasn't there something in the previous article (How Gay Was Sappho?) about some scholars thinking she adapted or used the Iliad as inspiration for some of her work?

Perhaps she was a mix, or just one of a kind.

<Neoterics were a series of avant-garde Greek and Latin poets who wrote during the Hellenistic period (323–31 BC).

Though I just realised that was well after her time. So I guess the concept didn't yet even exist for her to be categorised as such. It would be like categorising Greek drama under Naturalism

Here are some of the films, TV shows & webseries discussed so far, in the WebM threads over at /tv/:

Dracula’s Daughter (1936) – probably the first film to hint at the lesbian vampire trope. A surprisingly good sequel to Universal’s original ‘Dracula’ film in its own right.

The Vampire Lovers (1970) – Hammer’s adaptation of the ‘Carmilla’ novel by J. Sheridan Le Fanu. Arguably the best adaptation of the story, & with some very good performances, especially from Ingrid Pitt as Marcilla/Carmilla. Stars Ingrid Pitt, Madeline Smith & Hammer regular Peter Cushing. Highly recommended; this may just be the best lesbian vampire film out there. Shout! Factory’s Blu-ray release features an audio commentary track with director Roy Ward Baker, (screen) writer Tudor Gates & actress Ingrid Pitt, excerpts from the story read by Ingrid Pitt, and interviews with Madeline Smith and Hammer scholars.

Lust For a Vampire (1971) – The sequel to ‘The Vampire Lovers’, though it disregards continuity somewhat and all main characters are recast. The very interesting audio commentary with Hammer historian Marcus Hearn, director Jimmy Sangster & actress Suzanna Leigh is worth listening to as well. Honourable(?) mention goes to ‘Twins of Evil’ (1971), which is the third and final instalment of Hammer’s ‘Karnstein Trilogy’, though the character of Carmilla is hardly in it at all, and there is nothing sapphic about it all. Worth a watch if you want to see the ever-awesome Cushing as a witch-hunter, and some beautiful twins in various state of undress.

Fucking Åmål aka Show Me Love (1998) – A Swedish award-winning drama directed by Lukas Moodyson that ‘follows the lives of two seemingly disparate teenage girls who begin a tentative relationship’. Captures the feeling of growing up in a small-town in Scandinavia in the late ’90s and the love-troubles of the characters brilliantly and beautifully.

But I’m a Cheerleader (1999) – a satirical romantic comedy that pokes fun of ‘conversion therapy’/’pray the gay away’ camps. Stars Natasha Lyonne, Clea DuVall & Cathy Moriarty.

D.E.B.S. (2003) – ‘Made in 2003 right in the middle Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

BO of the other board here, just finished can Housewife. Massive spoilers ahead.‎

The first parts reminded me of Amer (even the location of the weird ritual the mother participates in is similar, but with Amer being as derivative as it was it's possible that both were inspired by some earlier work. There's also the amulet and the repressed little girl) and Profondo Rosso (childhood trauma, mentalist that picks up the troubled mind in the crowd) a lot, and the follow up of Mandy (from the house with glass that lets you feel like in nature, to the spooky artist significant other, to the cult and even the horn, some things almost look like someone worked on both movies or something. Even the home invasion was similar), but this is its very own thing.

I'll drop a fuller review when I can but as a primer I'd like to mention that ‎one thing I noticed from the start was the fear to have a child. It's there from the moment the mother acts all horrified at the menstrual blood in Hazel's panties. It's also very similar to the plot of the second season of Fargo‎ in a way (woman agrees with her husband about having a kid but is secretly taking contraceptive pills, then a female friend drags her into a cult that somehow changes her fate forever and consequences will never be the same) but again it's very different in many ways. What really surprised me was the role it played in the end. I was expecting a rape scene, not a birth scene. Very well done and I didn't see it coming at any point. Maybe I was too cynical and expecting it to be like a more violent Mandy because of the cult leader/chosen woman theme.‎

I also wonder if she left the event and came back several times if it was one continuous session until she ran away. The whole search of the amulet seems to suggest it wasn't continuous but it's not very clear. Maybe it's supposed to be that was, to make things more oneiric. The revelation (or was it manipulation) that she murdered her sister reminded me of Kitty and Evelyn in La dama rossa uccide sette volte, except it's reversed here.

Originality would seem to be lacking if you look at the isolated elements of the film, but they were combined in a rather refreshing way. If it was a ripoff (I'm not saying it was but leaving the possibility open)Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

So I just finished S3 last night.

Whitney proposed to Sara and I laughed thinking they were probably separated by now. I actually softened towards Whitney by S3 because she seemed to mature and settle down. I even felt bad that I thought her marriage wouldn't last when I saw them exchanging vows in the final episode. Nek minute, I googled 'where are they now' and no surprises they are divorced already kek.

Meanwhile I found that Jill & Nikki have their own yt channel. They have kids! But they haven't uploaded in three years.

It is and at the same time it isn't Caligula. I mean it's been a few years since I saw it, but the gif looks like the inserts Bob Guccione produced. They bring nothing to the picture and are rather artless (Though I do admit to saving a couple of the lesbian centered webms. I can't say I watch them)

It is really. From what I recall, the actors did real well with Tinto Brass, it comes off as campy at times, but I, and no doubt you've, suffered through a lot worse. Really nice set direction.

Oh, I saw the "restored" version with all that crap taken out. Still plenty of nudity and implied sex, but more like some kind of Heavy Metal story.

Thanks for the essay, it looks great.

I always wanted to direct films, and though I've given up on that now, I keep these dream projects in my head. One of my favorites would be to adapt Marius the Epicurean to screen. Dreamy odd coming-of-age story set in emperor Aurelius' Rome.

A storm never seen as powerful by man ever.

Tropical Storm Florence is slamming and obliterating the states of NC, SC, VA, and MD. There can be only one experienced weatherman and father of four talented enough to cover the news – Frankie MacDonald. He is informative and to the point in delivering accurate information verified by real scientists from Trump University. Hurricane Florence is a Category 4 storm with winds up to 130 miles per hour. Wilmington is already under evacuation; Myrtle Beach will be stranded upon landfall.
