The Horror Honeys: Vampire Monday Jam ~ 'Closer'

Vampire Monday Jam ~ 'Closer'

You shimmy-shook my boat,
Leavin' me stranded all in love on my own
Do you think of me?
Where am I now, baby where do I sleep?
Feels so good but I'm old
2000 years of chasing takin' its toll
And it's coming closer

At least they finally got rid of their neckbeards.
Hipsters seem like they are a subset of people destined to become the dominant lifestyle when vampirism inevitably takes over (let's be honest... humans are too vain to allow the zombie apocalypse, but vampirism? I think they'd let that slide). But until Jim Jarmusch's Only Lovers Left Alive, we hadn't really had the privilege of seeing hipster vampires in action. And people? It was a thing of freaking perfection. Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as the most gorgeous, androgynous vampires in history, scoffing at lack of modern day culture while longing for a past full of beautiful things? That's the hipster movement at its basest level. And when you think of hipster bands, who better to soundtrack the moment when we all go permanently pasty than Kings of Leon? Scoff if you will... but you know I'm right. ~RH
