well, there's a black vampire/paranormal series... The Vampire Huntress Legend series by L A Banks (black woman author w/ a black female protagonist for the series). i haven't read any of the books, i just remember seeing her interviewed for a True Blood promo on vampires in history/media.
LOL! Fuck slayers
Underworld is better my man. Esp. Michael Corvin vampire/werewolf hybrid.
Twillight = LOLOLOLOLOLOL
That was up there with one of the dumbest movie I've ever seen. Despite all the terribly bad acting, I was bothered by the whole "I've been 17 forever and am still in high school." You would think after all that time their intellect would dictate that they'd get tired of being around a bunch of high school numbskulls. And then the pedophilia - some 16 year old and a 100 year old vampire who looks 17. Ewww ... Where is the appeal? The gilr Bella is supposed to be smart but she sure is dumb. How is she "the one" for him? Last, the whole "I'm a female and so I must be protected." It was disgusting. She totally could not handle herself.
I've not read the books. I can understand the "appeal", but still, this whole "Twillight" thing seems very pathetic. Maybe its because I spent my tween and teen years with Buffy and Charmed - supernatural genre chicks who were not pathetic, whiny, "must be protected" wimps.
Such an awful movie: "You're my heroin [I want to snort you]!" "I am your masochistic, lion" *gaze and cue the cheesy special effects*
I shouldn't give a fart, but damn...
Just caught the end of Entertainment Tonight and I saw how the Twilight duo, Kristen Stewart & Robert Pattison, broke up. This is stuff I really couldn't care less about but they detailed how Kristen, this young girl was avoiding papparazzi driving around and then went into the woods to get with her jump-off dude. But the 'razzi followed them and took shots of them and then her and Rob split when found out.
My thing is that yeah these young folks are crazy rich & famous but I wouldn't trade to be their shoes for triple their paychecks. Can you imagine having all your indiscretions and mistakes you made in 20's broadcast to the world? That's not cool. I almost feel sorry for those two...
At the same time, paparazzi gotta eat too. Five to six figures for a pic? Shiiit, I'd probably hide in the bushes with a telephoto lens for that kinda $$$, ha.

I'm a vampire fan and might read the series. I'm more into the traditional vampire thing not the sparkly. But I may go see it with my boyfriend or something. He really wants to see it.
