My Dark, Creepy Basement
Glasgow School of Art glass plate negative showing students in costume. Early 1900’s
Lest we inaccurately dismiss the Victorians as naught but stuffy prudes, it behooves us to remember that whacked-out senses of humor are not a recent innovation. I’m used to seeing photography of this time period as a wall of stoney faces, but these headless jokers mug with the best of ‘em! The photos were created using double-negative.

I can't be the only one that has ever had something creepy like this happen on a lonely dark walk home...

The vampire genre is teeny bopper porn. Angel was guilty of statutory rape if he wasn't an outright pedophile. How many of you wouldn't have been creeped out if rather than a 200 year old vampire he was just a dude in his late 20's early 30;s having sex with a high school girl under the age of 17?
