Today I am thankful that sane heads prevailed in the world, and that I awoke to this:
rather than the cover proclaiming that Robert Pattinson won. (It turned out that cover was faked. Do no news agencies fact check any more?)
I’m not going into any anti-Twilight rant or anything, I just have this observation to make. Somehow we went from
mmmmm, Kiefer., (Lost Boys was my first vampire movie and turned me into a fan for life)
David Bowie, truly one of the sexiest men alive, (seen here in The Hunger, one of the oddest vampire movies ever made)
Brad Pitt, who is just SO pretty, and fantasticly cast as Louis in Interview with the Vampire- much better casting than Tom Cruise as Lestat, who should only ever be played by:
Stuart Townsend, who was PERFECT. And also, so so gorgeous,
Antonio Banderas, who while he looked completely wrong as Armand, who was supposed to be a cherubic blond, is insanely good looking,
David Boreanaz and James Marsters from Buffy, who are also, “rilly, rilly good looking”, ala Zoolander
a guy who on a good day resembles Frankenstein, and on an off day shows up at actual events looking like this:
Seriously, what are we teaching the young women of America? Vampires are supposed to epitomize all that is gorgeous and sexy and dangerously attractive in the world. Robert Pattinson does … not.
So today, I am apparently thankful for good looking men playing vampires in movies; for Johnny Depp, who has not played a vampire, but should; for Bruce who reminded me about David Bowie (seriously, how did I forget that?); and for the internets for providing me with pictoral evidence for my thesis today.
AND for the universe at large, which is apparently listening to me, because it seems that Tim Burton is going to make a film version of Dark Shadows, with … Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins. I might die.
