Vampires are popular right now matter of fact they are fucking BOSS. They’re as cool as new Kool-aid flavors. They’re as cool as the exact moment when Horatio Kane takes off his sunglasses and delivers a clever, suspenseful one liner and The Who kicks in with that awesome scream/organ combo. Side note: David Caruso is like the only ginger I can recall that is NOT a comedian, well, on purpose.
I haven’t gotten into the Twilight craze, but I like the vampire genre well enough. I’m always down for a vampire movie, especially when it’s not oriented towards teens. Which is probably why I liked Interview With The Vampire. I love the historical back stories more than anything though the blatant homoeroticism throughout this movie wasn’t half bad. “Antonio and Brad sittin’ in a tree, k-i-ss-i-n-g!”
Kirsten Dunst’s character, was a perpetual child (she was bitten at about eh 12-ish?). I wouldn’t like to be a child but I would really hate it if I were bitten by a vampire during the most awkward stages of my adolescense. I mean, I’m talking the acne, badly dyed hair, and the fact that I was kind chunky. What if a vampire bit me at 14 years old? I would be doomed to have those “growing out” length bangs that won’t stay out of my eyes forever? I would be a mopey, chubby girl who writes on her fucking shoes and wears silver eyeshadow?
Does this mean I would have an affinity for JNCO pants and a KORN t-shirt always or would I get hip to the changes in fashion? I don’t know because Lestat was rolling in some shit from the 1790’s. I wonder if I would resent my mother and think she’s “lame” even 200 years after her passing.
All of these things seem horrible. I do know now, however, that I would never develop past that B cup bra. I am so grateful I didn’t go to Louisiana during those awkward yet formative years (that’s a True Blood reference as well).
