I've Got An Issue


Enough already.

Well, not vampires persay. The real vampire community has for the most part left me alone, and I appreciate that. No I'm talking about all of the books and tv shows and magazine covers and everything vampire since the success of Twilight.

I read the Twilight series and enjoyed it well enough (all except for that fourth book, Dumb; she should have stopped after three). But for crying out loud people. Last night I saw a commercial for another "new" show called The Vampire Diaries, this after HBO's True Blood, which by the way is FILTHY. Melissa rented the series opener on DVD, and we couldn't watch even half of it. The New Moon movie cast has already been on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. I go to the bookstore, and DB is incorporating a hint of Twilight into it's marketing of books that have nothing to do with vampires. Nothing! Honestly, I'm so done with it. Even Bram Stoker would be shaking his head at all of this.

I'm calling for a boycott of all things vampire.

That's my issue. Thanks for listening.
