    Definitely sinister. Catlike? Implike? Demonettes? Devotees of some ‘black art’ I’d rather not think about?

    They look like test shots for some Hollywood remake of Les vampires.

    Maybe it was a secret studio cult.

  5. Stacia, ¿te ha dado miedo mi página web o mi blog? ¿Es acaso “patriotismo”? Sé que ustedes están muy perseguidos. Bueno, perseguirse es una opción. Un estilo de vida, una cultura.

    Stacia, have you been afraid my website or my blog? Is it patriotism? I know you are very persecuted. Well, one option is pursued. A lifestyle, a culture. As ls cavalry in westerns. Better yet, as the car chases in the old gangster movies.
