WTF Wednesday: Oh Dracula, what has happened to our vampires?

Hey my muppets!

So since I’ve decided that my topic of conversation for the week is Twilight and my love/hate relationship for the Saga, I was thinking, how did vampires come to sparkle? Where did the idea of a blood-sucking corpse that happens to be sexy even come from?

The Answer?

Thanks to Google’s dedication to him a few days ago, I learnt about Bram Stoker, the author of the 1897 Gothic novel, Dracula.

Count Dracula, as we all know, was the world’s first novel vampire. He did not sparkle. His powers were: Superhuman strength, is immortal (unless killed by a silver bullet, holy water, a steak to the heart, iron weapons or wild rose), can turn into a bat (and apparently other animals too), he could control the weather and he could vanish.

Since the count there had been many other vampire novels and even films about vampires, some of the most famous ones include Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire and Queen of the Damned. Other popular vampire films include Van Helsing and Underworld.

Vampires are meant to lure you in by their sexuality, their appetite for flesh, their naughty sense of nature. They’re meant to be irresistible like chocolate when you’re on your strictest diet….

So my question is… WTF Happened???

Stephanie Meyer’s vampires sparkle, are white as powder, are cold like stone, can run fast, have superhuman strengh and are immortal.

You decide what vampire you like best, but in the meantime, I think I’ll watch Queen of the Damned again!

Have a lovely day further peeps!

Tattoo Tuesday: Twilight Tats

Hello my dearies!

Why? Why would you get a tattoo of a Twilight character? Don’t ask me because I think it’s the silliest idea since the invention of the She-Wee.

Not only will you have a picture of a make-believe wolf or vampire on  you, you will end up being one of those creepy pedo-ladies called the Twi-moms one day. Then again, most of the people who get them are already moms or grandmothers, so never-mind…

OK so I’ll be the first to admit that some of the quotes in The Twilight Saga were actually quite nice – let’s forget for a moment that 90% of the quotes were stolen from Shakespeare – and that I wouldn’t wanna burn my eyes out if I saw somebody with the tattoo.

Here are the Good, the Bad and the HUGLY (hugely-ugly) of Twilight Tattoos:

The Good:

The Bad:

I REALLY hope this just a stamp…

and the HUGLY!!

and drumroll please….

I do apologize for any blindness or nausea I caused with my post.

Regardless though,

have a happy Tattoo Tuesday!

Manic Monday: The End of the Twilight Saga and the premiere I went to

Good morning my lovelies

Hope your Monday morning starts off better than mine because I think I might have a damn ear infection. Joy of friggin joys.

Anyway, I have some good news for every male that has a girlfriend with an obsession with Edward and Jacob and that is:

So, I’m sure many a boyfriend is pleased with that!

I’ll admit that at one stage I was a woman obsessed, having read (and owned) all the books, albums and DVDs of the Twilight Saga, but alas I’ve grown out of that stage and I am now a fully functional human being. I think.

On Thursday though, I was invited to be a VIP at the premiere of Breaking Dawn Part 2 at Monte Casino and being me and loving free stuff, I was there like a polar bear!

From having glasses of 4th Street Rose wines, to yummy finger snacks to popcorn and Coke and even meeting a Jacob and Edward lookalike (who actually looked nothing like them – LOL), a good time was had and well, the movie wasn’t half bad either!

There’s even one part in the movie that wasn’t even in the book… which totally confused the HELL out of me! Oh and to the one who asked me to add it here as a *spoiler*, it ain’t going to happen! Ha ha!

If you are a fan of the movies though, I don’t think you’ll be dissapointed at all.

Anyway my lovelies, I’m going to go die a slow death with these silly ears of mine that hurt so bad. Have a fabulous Monday!

WTF Wednesday: Things about Movies and TV shows I don’t get… Part 1

Hello and welcome to another blog by YOURS TRUELY!

I think I’m having a brain-farting day where all the bloggers’ block I’ve had in the past weeks are just tumbling down and I can blog more than I have in ages.

ANYWAY

Today I was thinking about the random things they try and sell us (not literally) on movies and TV shows that give us the illusion that it’s the norm and when things don’t work out quite the same in reality, we seem to think we’ve done something wrong.

Don’t understand what I’m talking about? Check out some of the things I’ve picked up that make absolutely no sense and convert it to your everyday life…

They have time for everything

I don’t know about you, but if I had to work as a forensic in Miami in the hot sun all day, I will barely have energy to take a bath and sleep when I get home, let alone go out and find some random shmuck to kill, unlike my man Dexter over here.

Movies and TV shows that promote this lie:

Dexter

Supernatural

Iron Man

Batman

You can be pathetic (or a whore, or a geek), it’s ok, hot guys will still want you

Just ask personality-less girls like Bella from Twilight and Anastasia from 50 Shades of Grey. You can dress like a dowdy house-wife, be awkward, not look after yourself and be as fun as a plastic bag filled with needles and random vampires and CEOs will be DYING to date you.

Movies and TV shows that promote this lie:

Twilight

50 Shades of Grey (still going to become a movie)

Pretty Woman

She’s All That

It’s alright to stalk the person you love because when they fall in love with you they will forgive you

I don’t care if you look like Ian Somerhalder, have a yacht and feed me the finest sushi in the land. If you’re going into my room and watching me sleep, standing outside my room and watching me change, I’m going to call the cops on your ass. This is not in ANY way sexy or appealing and will NOT make me fall in love with you!

Movies and TV shows that promote this lie:

Twilight

The Girl Next Door

You’ve got Mail

Love Actually

If you’re going to cause shit, make sure you wear a bulletproof vest, you will be invincible

In lots of movies someone gets shot and you think they’re dead and later you find out they were wearing a bullet-proof vest, so they end up fine.

Ok what a load of hogwash. If the baddies are going to shoot you and they’ve got the training and amazing guns at their disposal, they could shoot you in your head or any other part of your body that’s exposed and you could lose a lot of blood and die anyway. Not to mention the fact that your vest (unless made from Nokia 3310 cellphones) has a 50% chance of failing on you depending on the gun and bullet the person shooting you is using.

PS – I’m joking about the Nokias so please don’t go and make one and try it out.

Movies and TV shows that promote this lie:

Back to the Future

Man With No Name

So have you learnt anything totally useless from movies or TV shows?

There are many more that I will eventually get round to, in the meantime, this is my part 1.

Have an awesome hump day!
