What's up with all these vampires?
Are they just a fad? like aliens? then wizards? then ghosts? then lost survivors? then hoarders? then pawnbrokers? then tattooists? Is the American popular cultural buffet a bit weird, or what?
I have always loved vampires--they were my favorite monster. But now that people like Stephanie Meyer changed them and made them . . . weird, I guess? They are certainly horribly sparkle-y . . . I can only figure out that it's a fad that simply hasn't died out yet. I sure hope it does and that American fad stay away from my interests.
I think the current vampire popularity has to do with the Meyer books. She made vampires a much safer entity and brought them out the dark so-to-speak. I have always enjoyed vampire movies long before Ms. Meyer tamed them.
I agree, we have become so desperate for entertainment we will watch someone pan for gold week after week, or fight over a bridal gown. Yes rickzimmerman, a weird pop cultural buffet - well put.
I think the vampire thing will keep going for a while yet. It's been in the forefront for several years now, and it hasn't gone away--just made people come up with more variations on the theme. I got really tired of vampires for a while, and there were moments when I was reading a book and all of a sudden realized it was a vampire feeling with a sinking feeling--though I was usually surprised. Now I'm just sort of used to them, like how I get used to bad / questionable fashion choices and hairstyles.
It seemed that zombies or werewolves might dethrone them, but it hasn't happened yet...

Twice this week, I checked AdSense, and saw some nice earnings in the 30 to 50 cents range, due to ad clicks (I assume). Both times, these earnings disappeared when I checked back again a few hours later. I understand that earnings are not final until final, but the most recent case was...

This is going to sound kind of crazy, but, I assume that if I were to become a vampire...would I really have the desire to kill and drink blood? Can Vampires starve to death if they don't? Or do they just spend their iternity with stomach growls?I thought of this question while working on my...

I can't find a picture of the new helmet but I'm looking at it right now on the NFL Network and I don't like it. It is blue and solid and the horseshoes aren't on the side - they are on the lower back. I hate it. Not that I'm a colts fan even but still - I liked the old...

What's your favorite vampire novel?Looking for more reading suggestions here. I do not like "paranormal romance," for the most part, but I'll read an exceptional book - as long as the vampires don't sparkle. I've had about enough of Count Sparkula and his Merry Band of Emo Vampires. I'm...
