Anybody want to know why vampires aren't Freudianly "uncanny" even though they use, like, all the motifs that Freud identified with the uncanny?

WELL I CAN TELL YOU BECAUSE I'VE BEEN STUDYING THIS SHIT FOR THE LAST TEN HOURS AND MY BRAIN IS CRYING.

It's because the stereotype associated with them has become familiar to us--so, not unheimlich--and because when authors humanize them, like in Twilight, it also familiarizes them. So they lose the uncanny edge.
One could make them uncanny again if one chose to try and tap into our repressed fears in a different way., but as for most of their current incarnations, vampires = not uncanny figures.

Nah, we're just dishonest with ourselves and hiding behind that excuse instead of saying "I know it's bad for me, but I'm getting it anyway" then feel bad about it several hours after eating.

At least, in my case >_>

Ever the gentleman.

But it shouldn't be a problem --- assuming Skyrim is like Oblivion/Morrowind, the camera zooms in to their face and eclipses everthing else!

My friends decided to come over after I got home from a 7.5 hour day at the studio.
It was fun. I told them they could only stay for an hour but they only just left...................
Now I need to do my homework......



Also, Sleeping Beauty. That music is all that runs through my mind now.

After this weekend, I think I'm going to start REALLY watching what I eat. Ate more than I should of, and really feeling like I should start eating healthier :/ Damn my stupid cravings for things all the time! XD
