When’s the last time you saw the sun? How long have you been living in fear of the outside world? Do you need to cover your face and hands if you do go out in public? The concepts of being a creature of the dark and living in quarantine have a lot in common, so it’s no surprise that there’s a lot of music out there that’s become very appropriate for our stay-at-home world. In this chapter, Ed and Justin share some songs from KMFDM, Gary Numan, and others, that remind us that we’re not alone in being alone.

The Arcane Machine is a monthly show with supplemental content on Facebook, Twitter, and Discord throughout each month. If you like what you hear, please visit the artists’ pages linked below and buy some music!

Special thanks to David Everett for the listener-request song at the end of the show.

Is it a vampire movie, or a movie about an unkillable ancient cannibal who consumes blood to take the edge off of his hunger for human flesh?

Whatever your thoughts on whether or not He Never Died is a vampire movie, it IS a story that delves into concepts such as ennui and depression, the challenges of sobriety, and gnawing questions about the existence of god that invite the inevitable questions about good and evil and the possibility for redemption, which means that this bleak, bloody, nihilistic film is exactly the kind of vampire story Rose Sinister likes to sink her teeth into, this time with an extra helping of Biblical exegesis with help from my friend and fellow vampire nerd, Rabbi Uriarte.

That’s right. I consulted a Rabbi on this episode for you, dear readers. All errors in pronunciation and interpretation are entirely my own, however.

This was a fun episode to make, and while it’s been delated by travel, Mardi Gras, and my own bout with Covid-19, it’s here at last, and a lot more content on the way, since what better time than quarantine and lockdown than to work on new content to be published from here on out?

The delay in publishing this episode has also allowed me to hammer out details with this podcast’s new sponsor, EndlessNight.com : welcoming the vampire world by keeping Endless Night culture alive

The transcript for this episode has already been shared with my Patreon Patrons, and will be available on my website, rosesinister.com, in about a week or so. If you’d like first dibs on my episode transcripts, or access to other fun, exclusive features, consider supporting me on Patreon, patreon.com/rosesinister.

 

Support from my patrons and sponsors help make this podcast possible. Thank you for listening and sharing.
