Renfield Discusses Politics and Culture With Artemis

Since strange supernatural creatures and spirit animals were currently crawling all over the Canadian landscape (to say nothing of Justin Trudeau’s pot smoking mirror that had on its glass a frozen in time reflection of a closed rare and used book store at the end of a Harry Potteresque alleyway in London) the Council of Gods had decided to send Cernunnos the Celtic stag headed god of the hunt and Artemis the Greek goddess of the hunt to investigate.

Cernunnos was currently in the Kanesatake territory of the Canadian province of Quebec firing arrows at the burning disembodied head of French Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin who had flames coming out of the silver hair on top of his head.

Artemis was in Ottawa the Canadian capital taking stock of reports that a demon buffalo was walking the city’s streets.

After a day of hunting and no sign of a catch for
A & W’s proposed new super spicy bison burger, Artemis was currently at the Chateau Laurier Hotel in Ottawa having a balcony conversation with British MP Renfield R. Renfield.

The ghost of Orson Welles was sitting on a flying carpet that was given to him by the Persian goddess Anahita (who was business partners with the billionaire ancient Egyptian vampire Set in a Persian rug warehouse and business in London).

He was filming the conversation between Renfield and Artemis using an old fashioned black and white camera.

Renfield on Donald Trump’s latest cerebral train wreck shenanigans:Β 
Donald Trump is the sort of fellow who loves North Korean dictators and hates South Korean film makers.

Artemis to Renfield:
But moving from lack of brains to the state of the human heart in today’s times, what say you of the human heart, Renfield?

Renfield on today’s politically correct human sexuality:
Homosexuality has gone from being The Love That Dare Not Speak Its Name of Oscar Wilde’s times to The Lust That Can’t Shut Up About Itself of our own.

Renfield, after lighting his cigarette and putting the candle back on the table, remarks:
Today, civilization is viewed as a parasite. And savagery, decadence and barbarism summoned by the pied pipers of Hollywood, modern music and contemporary entertainment moves down the sunset boulevard of humanity’s waning day and the bright light of civilization, now in the same state as this flickering candle, will soon be gone with the wind.

    Justin is still high I believe. hahaha
    Greek goddess taking report on buffaloes. This is an interesting chapter. The flying carpet being used for the right job.

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, Kritika, Justin is totally high at the moment. πŸ˜‚πŸ€£

      And the Greek goddess is definitely finding out that Ottawa is a “home where the buffalo roam”.πŸ‚

      Yes, the ghost of Orson Welles is certainly enjoying his flying carpet. πŸ’ž

      He’s going around singing that song from Disney’s Aladdin, “It’s a whole new world…” 🌎

    I love thisβ€οΈπŸ€—

  3. George F. said,

    firing arrows at the burning disembodied head of French Jesuit priest Pierre Teilhard de Chardin …what symbolic hatred!!! How evil!!

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      The arrows or the burning disembodied head of Teilhard?

      I think it’s Teilhard’s burning disembodied head that’s evil, myself. πŸ€£πŸ˜‚

  4. George F. said,

    Donald Trump is the sort of fellow who loves North Korean dictators and hates South Korean film makers. Your perceptions of truth and irony are uncanny!!!

  5. George F. said,

    to The Lust That Can’t Shut Up About Itself of our own….Hysterically funny and true. Frankly, I’ve been around for a few years and this topic just won’t go away! Frankly, again, close the door and two people can do what they want. But I’m gonna share a link with you, twice, because I already posted it on my blog. This is how far things have come. I CAN NOT make this shit up!!

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      This is what happens when political correctness takes over everywhere.

      George Orwell was right when he wrote in his book 1984, “Freedom is being able to say 2 + 2 = 4.” as Big Brother was telling everyone 2 + 2 = 5.

  6. George F. said,

    same state as this flickering candle, will soon be gone with the wind…frankly my dear, I think humans perceive the end of civilization as their own candle flickers and fades. Could I be wrong about this?

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Yes, you very much could. πŸ˜€

      From reading all 11 volumes of Will and Ariel Durant’s The Story of Civilization (a collection my dad spent his life collecting and I was forced to leave them behind in my Vancouver apartment when I got evicted because I couldn’t fit them into my suitcase), it’s quite apparent that each civilization reaches a state of decline.

      It happens with either extreme decadence or an all encompassing war.

      European Christian civilization ended with the First World War.

      Communism, Fascism and Nazism moved in to fill the void.

      American society began to end with the Sexual Revolution of the 1960s and it’s been on a steadily declining downhill slide ever since.

    “People will love only themselves
    and their money. They will be boastful
    and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient
    to their parents, and ungrateful. They
    will consider nothing sacred.”
    ~ Paul of Tarsus

    Over my lifetime I’ve witnessed a
    dramatic collapse of corporate
    governance, with a corresponding
    rise of corruption in high places.
    Does the rot start from the top,
    like the so-called trickle down effect,
    an economic scam devised to enrich
    the already super wealthy. Or does
    the fish rot from the tail?

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      An excellent question, David. πŸ€”

      • David Redpath said,

        Ring them bells ye heathen
        from the city that dreams
        Ring them bells
        from the sanctuaries cross
        the valleys and streams
        For they’re deep and they’re wide
        And the world is on its side
        And time is running backwards
        And so is the bride
        Ring them bells Saint Peter
        where the four winds blow
        Ring them bells with an iron hand
        So the people will know
        Oh it’s rush hour now
        On the wheel and the plow
        And the sun is going down
        upon the sacred cow
        Ring them bells Sweet Martha
        for the poor man’s son
        Ring them bells so the world
        will know that God is one
        Oh the shepherd is asleep
        Where the willows weep
        And the mountains are filled
        with lost sheep
        Ring them bells for the blind
        and the deaf
        Ring them bells for all of us
        who are left
        Ring them bells for the chosen few
        Who will judge the many
        when the game is through
        Ring them bells for the time
        that flies
        For the child that cries
        When innocence dies
        Ring them bells for Saint Catherine
        from the top of the room
        Ring them bells from the fortress
        for the lilies that bloom
        Oh the lines are long
        and the fighting is strong
        And they’re breaking down
        the distance
        between right and wrong

        ~ ‘Ring Them Bells’ , by Bob Dylan

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        Bob Dylan could always sum up everything so well.

        He certainly caught the essence of the Eternal City of Rome in contemporary times.

    I’m jealous. I want to taste that super spicy bison burger… maybe with Renfield as my date. Hopeful πŸ˜‚

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      I’ll mention to Renfield that you want to go on a date with him and try that super spicy bison burger. πŸ˜‚

      • Jessica said,

        Thank you. You’re such a good friend. Hehehe πŸ˜†

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        One of my roomates told me today that he tried one of those plant based burgers that all the vegans are telling everyone to eat and he says they taste terrible.

        So you’ll do well eating the super spicy bison burger. 🀣

      • Jessica said,

        Haha πŸ˜€ I’m sure I’d like it.

        I tried one vegan burger too. It wasn’t my favourite but it wasn’t bad.

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        I actually like bison burgers better than beef burgers. πŸ˜€
