The ancient Romans believed that Lemures, or Larvae, vampire-like ghosts of the dead, returned to haunt their living relatives and cause them harm. In order to exorcise these malevolent spirits and banish them from the home, ritual observances called Lemuria were held annually on May 9, 11, and 13. These rituals required the father of every home to rise at midnight, purify his hands, toss black beans for the spirits to gather, and entreat his dead ancestors to return to the spirit world.

And why not to talk on your cellphone during a concert. ;)

This is seriously awesome.

It's just super rude to talk on cell phones at a concert like that. I just don't understand people. Where are their manners?

Huzzah for interactive concerts like that, where the musicians can let the offending patron know that they're being rude.

At RenFest, there was an act once in which, if the performer saw someone on the phone, he'd run and grab the phone and say hello to whomever the person was talking to while he was trying to perform . . . it usually got a lot of laughs, and I noticed many people reaching to turn off their cell phones when that happened.

when I read Lemures, all I could think of was Lemure, the smalll primates native to Madagascar, which my sister studied extensively in college and for gradwork. The idea of these cute fuzzy little primates being blood-thirsty is fucking amazing!

It's a funny coincidence that you wrote about vampires this evening, cuz this morning I was reading something about vitamin deficiencies, except somehow I misread it as vampire deficiencies, and I got very confused...

I had the good fortune to do this awesome play called La Bete, where I played a playwright who ended up being thrown out of her secure job at the Palace and essentially has to start all over again. I had this great monologue at the end of the play about not compromising oneself and striving for greatness, etc. The play was fun because there was a lot of breaking the fourth wall and going into the audience to address them. And one night during the final monologue, someone's phone went off. And they didn't turn it off and it went off again. And they still didn't turn it off and it went off AGAIN so I went into the audience and spoke the rest of the monologue to her. LOL

Which was probably relatively inappropriate, except my director gave me permission. And the next day, the girl was in her theatre class (she was required to see the play for it) and she brought it up because she thought it was completely inappropriate for me to do that to her and she was apparently humiliated. LOL and it sparked this huge debate in the class!!! I was most proud of that.

Still. What a biatch.
