I’m just going to say it:

Who the hell cares about Twilight?
(Of course, I’m referring to the upcoming movie, not the very pretty time of night)

Let the backlash begin.

Everywhere I look nowadays everyone is talking about this movie that is opening up in just a couple of weeks. Not to mention one of it’s sequels has spent months on the best-seller lists and the movie’s soundtrack is currently the number album on Itunes!

It’s going to be an international phenomenon!
It’s going to be huge!
It’s the new Harry Potter!”

Well, if it’s going to be so big, why the heck could I care less about it? I mean sure, I’ve never read the books but mostly it’s because I already own 7 seasons of Buffy and 5 seasons of Angel and I feel like they already sufficiantly covered the whole vampire-loves-mortal thing no? I mean what new ground could these books possibly cover?

I’d like to think i’m pretty mainstream. I watch whatever I’m supposed to watch, I listen to whoever everyone is listening to, I’m not afraid to admit that I have quite a few sheepish tendencies. But this whole Twilight thing somehow skipped me and I’m kinda happy about it.

So please someone tell me what I’m missing. Why is Twilight the most amazing thing ever?

And why do the vampires have to such nice hair? Would it kill them to have a bald one! Is that like holy water to them?
