You’ve had an encounter with one of the most annoying, self-righteous pricks in the scene: The elitist.

Dedicated to St. Roch, patron saint of healing against the plague and in this case during the Louisiana yellow fever epidemic… this cemetery, chapel and shrine is located off the beaten path in a quiet little area about 10 minutes outside of the French Quarter. At the paranormal division of the historical registry in New Orleans, it is noted that there are ‘sightings’ of a female sanguinary templar vampire that roams the area.

At the end of the search, one contestant perpetually worked their butt off and pushed the envelope.  And even when confusion and miscommunication arose, they pushed through and corrected the issues as speedily as could’ve been expected!

Attack of the Ninjas 2018: A Goth’s Epilogue

Attack of the Ninjas is an event presented by horrorcore rap group Twiztid and their independent record label, Majik Ninja Entertainment.
