Snobcast: For Fans Of Vampires
Behind This Week’s Snobcast:
While I think vampires are definitely hot, I have not been able to understand the pure obsession with a book promoting abstinence by using one of folklore’s sexiest creatures. I’m looking at you Twilight. From what I’ve heard about this book, it involves a male vampire and a human girl in the most fucked-up of relationships. I mean, the vampire watches her in her sleep, treats her like his property and she is completely reliant on him to a screwed-up level. Yet somehow this relationship that, if real, we would all discourage, has become the biggest female fantasy since Johnny Depp was a pirate.
I can relate a little easier to the other big vampire hit of ’08, True Blood. At least in the Alan Ball HBO series based on the book series by Charlaine Harris the vamps and humans get it on. Plus, Anna Paquin is one of the sexiest actresses of our time. She’s been getting my blood flowing since before appearing in my second favorite movie of all time, Almost Famous.
So, for all you fang-banger wannabes, I have put together a Snobcast worthy of your blood lust.
