Precisely what I am is in constant debate by society as a whole.
As for being alive, I can say with all honesty, more people I know would tell you I am not than those who would say I am. I've lost concern with keeping an opinion about it, myself.
Honestly, I have never seen that film, Boyo. And I certainly do not call people "boy".
In fact, I only know of it because a Horror Magazine/Blog somehow acquired a photograph of my Hearse while at the market and two friends of mine have subscriptions to it, so it was not long before I was contacted about it. Spooling through the comments, there were many people referencing who kept merely commenting "The Tall Man!" or "PHANTASM!"
I don't know anything about Phantasm either. Have you seen Harold and Maude? There is a creepy hearse movie.
I have, actually. Mostly only because I own an identical car to Harold's in PA.
Sorry you feel that way. I grew up thinking everyone owned a 1959 Cadillac. My Mum always had a few. Learned to drive in one of them (the same one that I now have sitting in a warehouse in Pennsylvania)
By my twenties, I learned most people did not own such cars (and more often than not, not even anything of similar vintage) and while this still confuses me, I have come to learn that apparently, '59 Cadillacs are highly desired among collectors. I suppose that's pretty neat.
Do you see now what you are doing to your kids?
The Dullahan is a cautionary tale about raising you kids in a hearse!
