Quotable: “True Blood” Fangs Are A Pain

“To learn how to bite somebody, there should be a school. We should have teeth school. I find Alex [Skarsgard] or Stephen [Moyer], who plays Sookie Stackhouse’s vampire beau Bill Compton, and say, ‘How the heck do I do this? … How do I not lisp?’ He said, you just have to take the pain.’ ‘They’re so big and sharp that they go into your bottom lip.’ He was exactly right. If you try to avoid and find a place to make these comfortable in your mouth, it’ll never happen. You look like evil Bugs Bunny.”

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 craze. I mean, “The Vampire Diaries” looks craptastic. But now someone has taken the obsession to new heights. A rock musical called “I Kissed A Vampire!” will be making an appearance at the Seattle International Film Festival. It stars Lucas Grabeel and Drew Seeley of of “High School Musical,” plus newcomer Adrian Slade. The flick is about a boy who gets bitten by an exchange student and turns into a vampire. The dude’s fangs pop out every time he gets close to the girl he likes which, if you ask me, sounds a whole lot like “Twilight.” Nonetheless, the girl totally wants his bod and she eventually gets bitten. When the chick starts dressing goth and eating raw meat, she flips and the two decide they have to find a cure. I’m sort of yearning for the old days when vampires were evil and dangerous, not smitten and corny. What about you? [I Kissed A Vampire] Keep reading »

Quotable: Anna Paquin Thinks Vampire Sex Is Pretty Deep

“Obviously, if you’re getting into vampire sex, which usually involves biting — the taking — then, yeah, clearly there’s some interest from both parties into maybe a more risque style of lovemaking and sex. But on another level, if you take away the pervier aspect of it, the sex is the deepest way these two people can be connected. You know, they’re not just f**king, they’re sucking each other’s blood. It’s all very romantic! I mean, I love you so much that I’m going to let you drink my blood? Nothing says ‘I love you’ more than a cup of freshly drawn blood. It’s very sweet.”

America’s Next Top Vampire

Anyone catch “America’s Next Top Model,” the vampire edition? While I’m shocked they never thought to do this before (like back when vampires were a huge craze and stuff?), I am super glad they waited until Andre Leon Talley was on the show and could call out specific moments of “dreckitude” involved in shooting these looks.

Is The Twilight Saga Making Pale Skin More Desireable?

Years ago, I was forced to accept my pale skin after burning my face so badly that blisters covered my nose. Now, while others slather on tanning oil with single-digit sun protection, I have to cover myself with a muumuu and wide-brimmed hat for fear of burning. If the Twilight Saga had been around earlier, I might not have had to endure the pain of a lobster red face or waited so long to stock up on SPF. According to the Daily Mail, women are embracing their pale skin following the release of “New Moon.” Keep reading »

Dracula Therapy Is The Scariest Anti-Aging Treatment We’ve Ever Heard Of

Warning: for those who are squeamish about needles, blood, or both, this beauty treatment is definitely not for you. So please, carry on, and we’ll catch you later. For the “True Blood” lovers or facial-happy folks, prepared to be intrigued. The latest in anti-aging treatments, according to the Daily Mail, is what’s referred to as “Dracula Therapy,” where a doctor draws your blood, extracts minerals from it, and injects it back into the skin on your face with dozens of pricks. The supposed result? Disappearance of fine lines, improvement of skin tone, and rejuvenated skin. Sounds like something straight out of a horror movie, right? Keep reading »

Want To Eat Dinner With Bella And Edward?

OK, I’ll admit that the Twilight obsession has officially gone too far. [The Robert Pattinson panties didn't do it? -- Editor] Personally, I’m a total sucker (heh) for the whole vampire trend. I read all of the Twilight books, saw the first movie, and recently fell in love with “The Vampire Diaries.” Whatever — the trend will end at some point. In the meantime, I’m enjoying my vampy entertainment. But now a couple, Annette and Tim Root of Forks, WA, decided to cash in on the obsession by launching a restaurant in the town where the books are set. Crossing the line much? It will be named Volterra, after the Italian city where the Volturi vampires live and so far it’s set to open next spring. What’s on the menu, considering vampires only eat blood? Appropriately, steak will be served (the rarer the better I’m sure) along with seafood options. Huh. What’s next, a glimmer charm school? [Eater] Keep reading »

The Real Reason Men Have Always Hated Vampires

People magazine will release a “New Moon” special to the ravenous, adoring masses tomorrow. The tween girl set will dutifully purchase it, their mothers will surreptitiously steal it, and every dude will hate it. We’ve told you why chicks dig vampires and men don’t, while Esquire says it’s because the vamps are batting for the other team, but this doesn’t begin to cover it. Men, well, straight men have hated vampires since Bram Stoker — they’re hardwired for it. Keep reading »
