Dark Shadows (when I was able) as a teenager. There was no t-vo then and television couldn't be recorded for convenient viewing. For those of you who are old enough to recall, Dark Shadows was an afternoon soap opera about vampires and such.
I watched the HBO Series True Blood, a more contemporary view of vampires living among us in the Southern United States. So I'm not uninformed as to vampire genre.
However, the current flood of vampire television and movies exceeds both my interest and my attention span, should I find myself interested in blood-suckers. Notwithstanding there are allusions to "sparkling vampires" and other versions of vampires in contemporary literature that I can't keep up with.
I personally prefer female vampires because they do have their own sex appeal. Could I (a mere mortal) overcome a fanged female in a fight? Would she have her way with me, or the other way round? These questions underpin the sexuality of fangs.
However the flood of vampire diaries, vampire drama, vampire feature films, vampire television, and vampire HBO (it's not television, its HBO) leave me somewhat drained.
So Much Marching Going On - It’s hard for me to understand how great satire sites like The Onion can continue to find readers when reality is more absurd than even the creative genius...
