We’ve written about “reborn dolls” before: they are extremely lifelike baby dolls which are often purchased by women who have suffered miscarriages and/or had abortions. Often women dress them up in outfits and give them names. The dolls are usually pretty creepy-looking on their own, but this vampire baby reborn doll for sale on Etsy.com is gives me extra chills.

Between The Hunger Games, Twilight, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, etc. etc., it seems that of late the publishing industry has more sway in Hollywood than ever before. (I could go on about the perception that the film industry is “creatively bankrupt,” but that, dear readers, is another story and shall be told another time.) This recent glut of book adaptations has led The Hollywood Reporter to create its first list of Hollywood’s 25 Most Powerful Authors. Included on the list are eight female authors: EL James (#4), Suzanne Collins (#5),Stephenie Meyer (#10), J.K. Rowling (#11), Charlaine Harris (#14), Laura Hillenbrand(#19), Candace Bushnell (#21), and Gillian Flynn (#22).
Yeah, I can see you gritting your teeth at Stephenie Meyer being included above J.K. Rowling. Stop it.
We need to talk about Twilight hate. Read more…
Pardon my ignorance, but I was not aware that there were people who called themselves vampires. Even being A Person Who Is On The Internet All The Time, this had eluded me. But alas, Movies.com has found the “Twilight” interview to end all “Twilight” interviews: a man named John Reason who lives in East Texas and claims he realized at age 14 that he is a vampire. John rides a motorcycle, wears cowboy boots, and was married for seven years … which all sounds pretty normal until you get to the part where he runs a site called RealVampireNews.com.
After the jump, here are some of the oddest tidbits from John Reason’s interview with Movies.com. Keep reading »
You hate “Twilight,” right? Just seeing those stupid promotional posters hanging in the movie theatre where you went to see something super-intellectual like, oh, I don’t know, fucking “Argo” or something, gives you an innate visceral malaise. Well, you know who hates it more? Robert Pattinson. You know, the star of the whole damn thing? Yeah, well, he hates “Twilight.” He is sick to death of “Twilight.” Coincidentally, he would also like to break the hands and mouth of whoever coined the name “R. Pattz.” And he hates his life. And you absolutely must see R. Pattz Hates His Life, a Tumblr full of GIFs that demonstrate just how much Rob hates his life. And “Twilight.” He’s out of his mind and it is fantastic. That Kristen Stewart is a lucky girl. Livin’ the dream of all weirdos everywhere. [Robert Pattinson Hates His Life]
“I would put [the sex scene] the last day of the schedule, [and] say, ‘Listen, I’ve got to have a closed set. It’s really, really important. No one can see the monitors or anything,’ and then just put like a walrus in or something.”
–Robert Pattinson responds to a question from BBC Radio 1 about what he would do if he were the director of “Twilight: Breaking Dawn.” Yep, he would use his new-found authority to add a walrus to the sex scenes. And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why we love Robert Pattinson. [People]
