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...

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...

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...
