Culture

Dark Matter

Hi Zeitgeisters,

I remember thinking recently, what ever happened to Elvira – Mistress of the Dark? She was the vampy, horror show hostess played by Cassandra Peterson and her shtick was to present B-Grade movies with a series of Mae West style double entendres. (The pinball ad above is typical of Elvira-esque comedy).

From what I can gather in Peterson’s Wikipedia entry, the character of Elvira was way more popular in the U.S. than we ever saw in Australia where she was only a cult figure at most.

Today, a friend sent me a link to the current Elvira site. If you remember her at all, then you gotta check it out. Straight away you will see her message “Peace is Patriotic”; a countdown to Halloween and a sound file playing an extremely cheesy Elvira song. – it’s worth a look.

Elevate the Insignificant,

Mr Trivia
