Vampire Hunter Drama Part 3
http://www.livejournal.com/users/alexlucard/840004.html#cutid1 is part two, and there's a link in there to part one.

Anyway, the arch rival of Sean Manchester, the guy who has been annoying me since I was a teenager and the subject of the last two posts on the subject has emailed me as of last night. This guy has a criminal record a mile long, from digging up corpses and violating them on down.

But at least he's more eloquent in his madness than Machester. here's David Farrant's email to me.




Dear Alex Lucard
I was most intrigued by all your comments here about the so-called Highgate Vampire; not least about myself being a 'vampire hunter'! It would appear that you arrive at most of your conclusions about the Highgate Case and myself from sensational accounts you have gleaned from the internet the problem is however that almost invariably, most of this inaccurate sensationalism as been posted up by Mr Sean Manchester himself (Please note he is NOT a genuing bishop) and if you check back on these accounts you will see that I have only been forced to correct unfounded public allegations made by Mr Manchester himself - albeit frequently hiding behind his usual aliases.

It is not my intention to argue against all the points you have recently made on the insidepulse website, as I appreciate you, like anybody else are entitled to personal opinions (however wrong or misguided these have proved to be in your particular case).

I will just say one thing however, to set the record straight for you - ... I am NOT a 'vampire hunter', in reality I am just a psychic investigator and I do not even accept the existence of 'blood sucking vampires'. Mr Manchester apparently does (as he has publically stated in his self-published book The Highgate Vampire), but that is really his problem! In passing, I can conclude by saying that my non-acceptance of Mr Manchester's ridiculous public claims he makes about 'vampires', has been the main reason for his campaign of hatred against members of The British Psychic and Occult Society and myself.

Yours Sincerely
David Farrant
President BPOS.

NB: In the event that you might be interested my main website can be found at http://www.dfarrant.co.uk also could I refer you to Occult Forums International Vampire Thread, Off Topic Occult. The link is http://www.occultforums.com from which Mr Manchester has just been publically banned (within the last 3 or 4 days or so.


SHUTUPSHUTUPSHUTUP! Sigh. My email to him

Ummm...Dave? That column you read of mine was me printing the whack job hilarious emails Manchester sent me. Re-read the column. Those are his words, not mine with me making fun of him at the end.

It was in reference to the column I wrote back in Jan '05 (http://www.insidepulse.com/article.php?contentid=31102) where I recanted the entire Highgate vampire saga.

I know Manchester very well. And by that I mean, I know him by reputation very well, as he's been the butt of American folklorists and parapsychologists for as long as I can remember. Norrine Dresser, Paul barber, Carol Page. All of us snicker quite profusely at the whole "Highgate Vampire" incident.

I'll tell you what I told Manchester: Stop acting like children. Both of you. This happened 30 years ago. My god, both of you are old enough to be at retirement age soon and you're carrying on like schoolchildren about an event maybe 5% of the world remembers and only a fraction thereof even cares that it occured.

All your sniping between the two of you does makes you both look foolish and foppish. Like attention whores deserpately clinging to some sort of public limelight when one of you just needs to start completely ignoring the other. I don't care if he starts it, or is just really good at getting your goat, because the end result is STILL the two of you bickering of the world wide web. Please stop.

-Lucard

No way, keep it coming!
What I learned from this:
  • I need unkempt hair to be a vampire hunter.
  • I need a big gold medalion of something cool to look official.
  • Once I get everyone referring to me as a vampire hunter, I should deny it completely to regain some sanity points.
  • I need a website.
    I really can't think of anything more I will need, save for some books and a stake or something.
    This stuff just keeps getting better and better. :D

    I will remain aloof of it all and most likely profess my "view" on the highgate affair to be the true one.
    No one will know my view however, as I don't actually have one... it is the correct one though. Lol, too much fun to be had with this.
    Rest assured, I shall never allow the dead to triumph over the living. +super.hero.pose+

    I didn't even think of that... or I could weld up something like from Trigun. Thank you Giles-Alex, thank you. I could also make a "vampire hunting" van, which is really just a goth shaggin wagon. The possibilities are literally endless.

    oh.my.godz.
    I am so glad I get to hunt people like that. And, as always, the challenge remains: I will stand 3 feet from you. You do everything you can to drain my energy psy-like. After any amount of time you stipulate, I will take a step and punch you. I bet I win. +wicked grin+

    I love the vampire La Sombra and how he thinks only in terms of second Edition Vampire: the Masquerade.

    and yet, he claims to be a true vampire and looks down on others as gamers.
    I was chortling for a while about that guy for a good long time.

    aren't you an occultist?
    I personally like the occult very much, however, I am not a sucker like most if not all on that forum.

    No. I'm a folkorist. I take urban legends, mythology, and other taboos and beliefs and disect their origins and where they came from, and also what the represented originally compared to modern times.

    Part of that has involved doing parapsychology in regards to research, but I'm the last person you see cutting off a chicken's head and using the blood in a ritual of cleasing so that I can use my long sword +2 to hunt vampires.

    I love the occult and the concepts of it. I HATE occultists.

    I guess I am in the same boat with you then, I have been reading about the occult since I found the occult book section of my junior high school library. I however would generally frown upon cutting a chickens head off to make my long sword a +2 to hunt vampires... any vampire hunter worth his salt knows that you have to use holy water or monkey snot. damn.

    Monkey snot only works on a full moon when the stars are aligned on the cusp of Aquarius though.

    Dash it all, I had forgotten that. At least for the rest of the time, there is the tincture of Arnica, cultivated on the waxing phase of the gibbous moon on the 9th friday after the eve of the fall solstice, and bottled exactly 73 hours later. +whew+ things were looking pretty good for the vampires there.

    I just hope they are not skulking around and reading my LJ inside their laptop equipped coffins.
