1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST

    Brian Joseph Davis is a journalist who has made a hobby out of creating composite sketches for famous literary figures by using law enforcement compositing programs. For example, his imagining of Dracula, as described by Stoker, is a long way from the sexy, mysterious vampires that traditionally creep across the silver screen. Take a look at some of the sketches, plus the written passages the images were based on. [Source]

    I think he'd be less creepy as Jack Nicholson.

    Having looked at all the sketches I have to admit to being unimpressed with them. Reading the descriptions, I find it hard to see how the pictures match up. Might just be me, though.

    The comments on that page are hilarious to read, though. Just goes to prove what a lovely site SKMBs are when you see some of those other comments. I love you guys and gals.

    Not how I would picture him at all! All I remember from the book regarding his description was that he had reddish blond hair, bow lips, and blue eyes. But certainly, he doesn't look like that. :O
