After Edward: What Will Be The Next Big Post-Vampire Craze?

Team Edward or Team Jacob. “True Blood” and “The Vampire Diaries.” It’s clear that blood-sucking vampires are having a cultural moment. In fact, since the first “Twilight” movie was released in 2008, vampire-related products have grossed more than $7 billion worldwide. That’s a whole lot of blood at the bloodbank.

But “Twilight” and “True…

Quotable: “True Blood” Creator Alan Ball Takes A Shot At “Twilight”

“To me, vampires are sex. I don’t get a vampire story about abstinence. I’m 53. I don’t care about high school students. I find them irritating and uninformed.”

– Alan Ball, who brought “True Blood” to the masses, takes a well-deserved shot at Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, which I hear has implied sex i…

How To Write Like Stephenie Meyer

The website “I Write Like” analyzes a block of text and tells you which famous author the writing is reminiscent of. Depending on what article I put in, my writing style is either similar to Jane Austen (um, boring?) or Stephen King (supermarket trash?). Writing like Stephenie Meyer, the woman behind the hugely popular Twilight

Quotable: Screenwriter Melissa Rosenberg Majorly Spoils Key Moment In “Breaking Dawn”

“The childbirth—all the scenes, I feel—should be on screen. Would we actually see Edward’s teeth through the placenta? I don’t think so. I don’t think we need to see that.”—Melissa Rosenberg, the screenwriter behind all three “Twilight” flicks, talks about how they plan to take out a few gory details from the childbirth scene i…

“Vampires Suck” Looks Like It … Sucks

I’m still reeling from the atrocity that was “Date Movie,” but now Aaron Seltzer and Jason Friedberg are back to make fun of “Twilight” and all the other fangy movies and TV shows with the flick “Vampires Suck.” I’m not sure why they wasted all that production value on churning out these movies. But…

Quotable: How To Make A Vampire Penis

“The color was the biggest thing. It had to look like vampire skin. … The other problem was the sparkle: It had to sparkle in the sunlight. If it didn’t sparkle in the sunlight, the whole idea was dead. … We did have people write in and tell us that Edward was bigger than that.”…

The New Way To Say “I Heart You” — With Bite Marks?

Remember in high school when you’d get a hickey and proudly show it off the next day at school? Oh wait, you didn’t do that—you were too busy covering that thing up with a turtleneck even if it was 100 degrees out. Well, let’s just say that today’s teenagers are obviously devolving (remember how they’re…

Was The Hair And Makeup In “Eclipse” Distracting?

It would be inaccurate to call me a Twihard. But I guess I could be defined as a Twisoft. Meaning, I’ve never read the books, but thanks to a sister who LOVES the franchise, I have been to the opening-night midnight screenings of both “New Moon” and, on Tuesday night (Wednesday morning?), “Eclipse.” I do…

Elena Kagan Asked For Her Views On Edward Vs. Jacob

After a long day of answering questions during the confirmation hearings, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan was finally asked a question about an issue that matters to 13-year-olds. Unfortunately, she did not have an answer. Don’t you just love it when politicians try and be funny?

Quotable: “Eclipse” Producer Outs Kristen Stewart And Robert Pattinson As An Actual Couple

“Oh my God, I hope they stay together. Because it could be awkward on set in the next movie if they have a huge falling out. It’s like, wow, they have to portray this love story through two more movies. God, I hope they stay together; please stay together.”—”Eclipse” producer Wyck Godfrey’s response when asked…

A Choose Your Own Adventure “Eclipse” Game

I used to be a big fan of choose-your-own-adventure books, and I also used to be a big cheat. Meaning that when it came to picking my literary destiny, I would read the outcome of all the options, and pick the one that didn’t involve my scuba tank running out of air. But because…

Quotable: Taylor Lautner Talks To His Abs

“[Taylor] talks to his abs! Kind of the way you talk to tomatoes if you want them to grow? So he sits there, he talks to them, and they grow. He’s got like a 10 pack now.”Alex Meraz talks about his fellow wolfpacker, Taylor Lautner, at the premiere of “Eclipse” in Los Angeles last night…

The “Jersey Shore” Kids Remake “Twilight”

I wonder if anyone camped out for 96 hours to see this spoof video, with the cast of “Jersey Shore” recreating “Twilight“? Snooki of course plays Bella, who gets a pickle cake for her birthday and punched in the face when she cuts her finger. The Situation plays Edward, complete with sparkly abs. A…

10 Things To Do While Camping Out For “Eclipse”

I don’t even think it’s worth making fun of hardcore “Twilight” fans because they make it a lil’ too easy, what with their “Twilight”-themed bedrooms and all. According to People, since Monday, hundreds of Twi-hards have been camped out in front of the L.A. theater where the “Eclipse” movie premiere will be held on Thursday.

The Vampire Craze Goes Musical

I love a good spooky vampire story just as much as the next gal. As a kid I watched “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Angel” religiously. I’m addicted to “True Blood” and was totally down with “Twilight,” until it became weird and cultish. But recently, I’ve started to become a bit wary of the blood-sucking…

Quotable: Robert Pattinson’s Big On Foreplay, Thinks He’ll Die Before 30 & Wants A Date!

“They like that moment before [sex] … the kind of tipping point before it goes over. I mean, everybody likes that. That’s the best part, for a relationship.”Robert Pattinson explains why he thinks folks find the “Twilight” flicks so arousing. [People]

Quotable: Robert Pattinson Just Saw “Twilight” For The First Time Last Week

“I just saw ‘Twilight’ on TV for the first time a few days ago … When my song came on, I was thinking, ‘That is so bizarre—I actually had a song in the movie.’ … And I haven’t read [‘Breaking Dawn’] yet! I’m quite glad I haven’t read it. I didn’t intend to not read…

“Twishite” Or “Twilight”: Which One Will Have You Moaning?

OK, Twilight fans and haters, here is something you can all moan about. The biggest bummer about the series is the lack of hot and steamy sex scenes after hundreds of pages of mushy flirtation. With Stephfordy Mayo’s New Moan, the first book in the Twishite saga, this biting, heh, parody will leave you moaning…
