Ok ladies hold on to your knickers cause I got a doozie for you all. You all know my Monday Madness saying is “We all go a little mad sometimes.” Right? Well, this time it ain’t ME!!! LOL Nope this madness is totally NOT my doing I just felt the need to share the giggle.
Now Im sure during the Eclipse promo and launch you all heard that our boyfriend Rob was and is distantly related to Vlad the Impaler A.K.A. Dracula
And if you didn’t know it well, No shit, it’s true. He’s also distantly related to the British Royals.
Since Rob got his fame from playing the ever gorgeous Edward Cullen~ Vampire, I thought this was extremely interesting.
But when my mother stumbled onto the following story I had to ask, “Are you serious?”
Nicholas Cage Immortal/Vampire
This is what the owner of the photograph had to say:
Original c.1870 carte de visite showing a man who looks exactly like Nick Cage. Personally, I believe it’s him and that he is some sort of walking undead / vampire, et cetera, who quickens / reinvents himself once every 75 years or so. 150 years from now, he might be a politician, the leader of a cult, or a talk show host.
This is not a trick photo of any kind and has not been manipulated in Photoshop or any other graphics program. It’s an original photo of a man who lived in Bristol, TN sometime around the Civil War.
For the many of you insisting that this is a Photoshop manipulation: Any serious potential buyer will be allowed to have a photo expert of their choice examine the original photograph before any money changes hands.
I’ve had a lot of questions asking where I purchased this. As followers of my website know, I collect antique memorial photography – images of dead people – from the 1800s. This photo was found in the very back of album that contained an unusual number of Civil War era death portraits (which is why I purchased it). All of
the other people in the album, living and dead, were identified by name – this man was not.
Here is the original link I found on ABC NEWS and for those of you who are not in the US, ABC is a reliable News source. Check it out for your self.
And the link to the actual site of the photograph owner. (Membership required to view photos) The Thanatos Archives
Apparently this man was asking 1 million dollars for the “photograph” on ebay but the picture was suddenly pulled. Was it sold? Did Nicholas Cage get it removed? I don’t know you decide.
Now imagine my surprise while researching this, I also stunbled onto this…
John Travolta also an Immortal/Vampire!
Here is the link to that story. John Travolta 1860. Short version, appaerntly these two seperate Civil war era photograph collectors are friends and stumbled on these pics. Both insist they are not Photoshopped at all.
On an interesting side note the “John Travolta” era photo is being sold on e-bay for a mere 50,000 US Dollars. I guess that means Nicholas Cage is more Popular??? LOL
Now on another Weird twist, both John Travolta and Nicholas Cage are Scientologists and they believe in “Time Travel.” Also, in case you haven’t made the connection yet, (it took me awhile too) John and Nicholas played in a little flick together in 1997 known as “Face Off”
or should I say…
Now you’d think this would be enough of a weird coinkydink but oh no… there’s more. Ever hear of Keanu Reeves? LOL of course you have. Did you also know that it is believed he is a Vampire too? heh heh somebody does…
Here is the link to that story Keanu Reeves Immortal There is a video and eveything! Short version, The first pic is a painting of a french actor known as Paul Mounet 1847-1922. Mounet supposedly died in 1922 but no body was ever found. *cue Twilight Zone Theme song* Could Keanu be the missing Paul Mounet?
So Ladies Tell me your thoughts! Please! I’m Dying to know! *gigglesnort* Are they Time Travelers? Vampires? Or some other sort of Immortal? Or do you think it’s just a load of BS?
Just imagine, with Rob actually being related to Vlad the Impaler/Dracula, and the “possibility” (???) of the above stories, Maybe in 50 or 150 years from now our Boyfriend Rob will still look like this…
As for me, I’ll keep my (fangs sheathed and) my mouth closed…for now. But I will say this if you can’t get Rob to bite you and make you a Vampire maybe you can talk John, Nick or Keanu into it! LOL
Thanks Mom for the post idea!!
I’m outta here ladies!
