what’s with the vampires

what is it about vampire stories that capture the attention of people around the world? it’s not just girls, it’s mass market, it’s universal. how come?

starting as far as my memory serves, interview with the vampire, buffy the vampire slayer, and of course twilight (though i’m a team jacob)

now it’s true blood, vampire diaries, and cirque du freak. what’s next?

i’m not complaining or anything. simply amazed and perplexed, perhaps, with this vampire effect. i never think it’s fun to watch someone’s blood being sucked away. i looked away from this scene while watching blade (can’t recall which one). at first, i thought those good looking people playing vampires are the reason. but then there’s twilight, in which the actor portraying edward is someone i find no appeals at all. of course, my opinion on the matter obviously runs in the opposite direction with almost every girl in the world. still, it’s gotta be more than some pretty faces to make vampire stories globally and timelessly attractive, yes?

or maybe we are simply drawn to something we can’t have; immortality, forbidden love. or silently and eternally suffering from curse gives an air of mystery. is it why being an open book is deemed banal and uninteresting? must a guy talk as little, be brooding and hard to read to be mesmerizing? when will a vampire guy be nice, nerdy, and wear his heart (even though it’s not beating) on his sleeve? will this type of vampire sell? will a dorky vampire turn his creator into a million dollar author?

so yes, they gotta be all brooding, mysterious, carrying the world on his shoulder type. i guess i’m not a vampire girl material. i like my dream guy cute, geeky, loving me only, and jolly. can’t see these personality traits in any contemporary vampire characters at all.

can you imagine chuck (from that comedy spy series) becoming a vampire at all? ūüėÄ

p.s. i like sparkling vamps though. nowadays, almost all of my makeup is sparking, glittering, shimmering. i heart it big time.

sweet dreams everyone.

i like jane

or more like, i wanna be her. 

it’s jane from twilight, that is.¬†

not that i want to become a vampire. i’m not stupidly crazy like bella (aka two-timing b—-). i like her smug mannerism, when it’s not directed my way, of course.¬†

one reason i can think of (admitting) is that attitude and expression are sort of a shield. not the same kind as bella (whom i grossly dislike) but the shield from antagonism. with that attitude walking side by side, no one will dare messing with you. 

some air i should wrap around myself a lot more. 

i’m feeling that i care about respect much less. now i want FEAR.¬†

go jane

i have become a twilight groupie

i couldn’t resist it anymore. i had tried to restrain myself from buying the books. being short on cash is one of the reason. another is that i am exhausted from reading sequel books. i was determined to stop at harry porter. 7 books seem to be more than enough. another 4 (or 5) doesn’t sound possible. moreover, i think i have read many books already, enough to skip this one w/o being branded illiterate.¬†

i was doing fine after watching twilight. the movie is nice but not powerful enough to make me read the book. new moon is totally another story. with jacob looking like that, i couldn’t fight it anymore. and i succumb, hence the book.¬†

so yes, it’s not much because of the plot or the power of love between immortal and human. it’s jacob. with his long or short hair, being tall, dark and that dreamy smile, i just want to die and go to werewolf heaven. i can understand why bella loves edward. the words in the book are so strong , emotional and vivid. on screen, it’s different. it’s visual. i can never prefer some pale thin cold guy to dark, handsome, tall, hunky, furry, and warm one.¬†

twilight follower i become. vampire lover i am not. i pledge my allegiance to the werewolf, especially when he is that breathtaking, drop-dead gorgeous, stunning, striking, …(please help me with the synonyms)…

i got jacob fever

My love is as a fever, longing still
For that which longer nurseth the disease,
Feeding on that which doth preserve the ill,
Th’ uncertain sickly appetite to please.
My reason, the physician to my love,
Angry that his prescriptions are not kept,
Hath left me, and I desperate now approve
Desire is death, which physic did except.
Past cure I am, now reason is past care,
And frantic-mad with evermore unrest;
My thoughts and my discourse as mad men’s are,
At random from the truth vainly expressed.
For I have sworn thee fair, and thought thee bright,
Who art as black as hell, as dark as night.

by william shakespeare 

blame it on being lifeless

because i don’t have a life, and don’t try to find one, my time is much spent on some fictional life.¬†

twilight’s new moon is full of emotions. i love jacob. i’m team jacob from the start. and this episode is like oh wow. i can’t not in love head over heel w/ jacob.

how could i not? werewolf or a simple dog, they are much preferable to vampires. is there anyone who doesn’t like to hug a furry warm fluffy creature?¬†

i love every scene w/ jacob and bella together, every scene of him alone. every scene of him in every angle. 

you can’t design love. bella loves edward and nothing you can do about it. bella breaks jacob’s heart, as maga destructive as it it, nothing you can do about it.¬†

i guess there’s nothing i can do about it, the fact that he doesn’t love me.¬†

ok, back to the movie, jacob looks hot in very turn, long hair/short hair, w/ shirt or shirtless hahaha, smiling or being serious. oh dear i’m so in love w/ the werewolf.¬†

that’s enough walking on senseless cloud for one day. what movie are you planning to see next?
