Paradigm Shift. The old hunter/prey vampire way of thinking isn't working anymore. "It's not about stalking. It's not about power-tripping. It's not about taking.

Eerie America TV Series
Eerie America could very well be called The Fodors Travel Guidebook for The Addams Family. I read some in-depth information about the show and saw the promo, and from what I can tell, this will be an absolutely AWESOME series if they can get it off the ground. (I'm actually praying they will.) Let others know and see who can help. This is something that should happen! Let's pull together and make it so!
