I officially declare this year to be Year of the Vampire. Having evolved from last year ("Year of the Pie" see: Sweeney Todd, Pushing Daisies, Waitress, etc) from sweetness into darkness, we can only shudder and enjoy it. And enjoy the year of the bloodsucker as I am with the watching of True Blood on HBO, the reading of the Stephanie Meyer books, the Charlaine Harris books, and listening to Vampire Weekend on the, ur...weekend. I also just finished Thirsty which was quite delicious. With a brief side step, I devoured Zombie Blondes (I do think Brian James might be Kurt Cobain's lost twin) but in fairness the zombies acted more like vampires that could walk around in the daylight. More on this as the year progresses...until then, eat garlic.
