This is more of a joke than a TV series, I knew this from the very first episode of the show: the way their fangs come out and the way they die, I mean their remains look like bloody stool. I watch this show because it really blows my mind with all the absurd (I love it for that actually), if there is a way to take your mind off things, it’s watching True Blood (although Hemlock Grove is nipping at its heels already). So here I want to share the most absurd moments of the last season.
Spoiler Alert!

It often happens that one gets fed up with the customary entertainments. There are no any interesting movies on in the local cinemas and the cafes and bowling clubs seem to be such a bore. And here one begins to understand that he or she may lack something that would provide the new unforgettable impressions.

It is sad to admit that we tend to forget about the joy and pleasure that nature gives us. That happens because all our entertainments get more and more technically sophisticated. Gradually we lose the ability to see the happiness in fulfilling the simple relaxing actions such as walking in the local park or watching the birds. Every city dweller is eager to get the new impressions and share them with his or her friends without facing the words “I’ve already downloaded and watched it”. If you want to get an amazing experience that will provide a lot of happy memories for you try to go on a trekking tour. This is the best activity both for the people who miss the hiking with their classmates at school and the ones who have never spent a night in a tent.

After “The Ring” movie was released the European viewers found out that the ghost stories also exist in Japan. The words “kaidan” and “neo-kaidan” started to sound everywhere. But if there are the new kaidans there must be the old ones.

Probably someone may remember the “Kwaidan” movie by Masaki Kobaysi telling the four supernatural stories combined in one film. The name of the film is an archaic transcription of the word “kaidan” denoting the mysterious or creepy story”. The film was awarded a special prize on the Cannes movie festival. However it cannot be called a typical example of the genre which was extremely popular in Japan in 50s and 60s but completely unknown outside its border.

Kaidans were traditional elements of the Japanese culture during a long period of time, but the term itself appeared only in the Edo epoch in the sixteenth century. Firstly is was the tradition of storytelling. The custom of a hundred kaidans existed in the middle-aged Japan. The country inhabitants gathered used to gather on one of the houses late in the evening, and a hundred of candles was lighted. Everyone had to tell a scary story after which one of the candles was blown out. The night was passing, some of the people were falling asleep and the border between reality ind imaginary world was getting more and more vague. According to the old legend when the last candle was blown out something awful always happened to those who weren’t sleeping. Of course the tension was growing as it became darker in the room.

Artists and performers probably don’t know that they are just a toy of someone above them. The most of them are a tool to fulfill the tasks they do not have any guess about. The producers seem to have a little bit more information but they are likely to receive the orders from their bosses to include some definite symbols and images in their works. Of course, Rihanna probably doesn’t realize what kind of impulses does she transmit for being dressed up, told how to move and which eye to cover with her palm, what to sing and when to smile. We use body language unconsciously and if we see somewhere a certain pose or a face expression there is a great possibility that we will adopt it.You may notice that if you read a book and came across a witty phrase you will remember it and pronounce it in a short period of time as your own. The same thing is with the gestures and posing. The videos are full of movements which are not chosen randomly. Beyonce is not an exception as being on the top if all hit-parades can’t be accidental. The forming of tastes and preferences is too important to let it drift as it it. It’s the instrument of the mass influence.
