Vampire Follow-up

July 31, 2009 at 5:13 am 6 comments

Just to follow-up on our discussions about loving vampires yesterday, Slate has an interesting article out today about how chaste our vampires are these days. They do everything but suck people’s blood it seems! This once again makes my point that people want to love vampires because it is an illusion of danger rather than a real threat. Check it out!

And, rather freakishly, the Times also has an article out today about why vampires are so appealing! And suddenly Literary Transgressions is magically trendy. My goodness.

    “These women are going to be shocked when the sensitive, emotionally available, poetry-writing boys of their dreams expect a bit more from a sleepover than dew-eyed gazes and chaste hugs. The young man, having been schooled in love online, will be expecting extreme bondage and a lesbian three-way.”

    That is one of the best and truest things I have read lately ;)

    We are magically on trend! How did this happen?

      I’m just psyched we caught a trend wave! Now I might have to read Twilight just to keep up. (Although I visited Ms. Meyer’s website which has “outtakes” from the books [something which I think is almost unforgivably self-aggrandizing to post on your website], which I read, and they were quite possibly some of the worst-written pieces of drivel I have ever seen. In their defense, they are outtakes, but still. I suspect the writing quality is similar throughout the books, yeah?)

        I wasted a day of my life on Twilight — a day I will never get back, a fact I regret so deeply I am unwilling to waste three more days of my life to finish the series. Just a warning ;)

    “I wonder what the odds of Hollywood ever making a movie about a woman who is victimized by a vampire and works to destroy for revenge him instead of cuddling his head and wanting to bone him are.” Hahaha. Probably not so great. (That was in the comments). =P

    They were talking about Dracula. Aw, you guys -are- trendy! =D
