Twilight Saga: Why Does It Bother You So Much?




Lately there have been tons of posts slamming the Twilight franchise and how much money it has made and I don't understand WHY?

People have actually been saying that, the world must be over, or that people are too stupid now to watch good films. REALLY?

Why? I want to know why does this bother you?

First of all, the films, just like the books, are great. The stories are solid, the acting is fine, the directions is good, it is what it is, a VAMPIRE STORY. You have to suspend disbelief and get into that world to enjoy it. It isn't reality folks, it is fiction.

As well, why are so many men, especially grown me, threatened by Edward? Last year several of my friends were calling him a pedefile, WTF? Really? I mean, really? How stupid is that? Here is a 17 year old that is in love with a 17 year old. Only thing is, Edward (Robert Pattinson) will never get older.

I just don't understand why people are so upset. They only thing I can think of is that they are jealous that they aren't apart of this amazing and money making franchise.

  1. Upset? No. Meh? Yes. Here is an interesting take on the franchise:

    If you'd like to see what can be done with a movie that has an actual vampire in it, perhaps you'll enjoy "Let The Right One In," the original Swedish film, before they release the American remake. Or, any random episode of Buffy or Angel.

  2. Read the book, loved it! Saw the movie, liked it! Yes, this is fiction, but it is entertaining, and isn't that the whole idea?

  3. I've already seen that film and to me that is like comparing apples to oranges, both fruit, but completely different. I think people are too upset about the Twilight franchise, and what do you mean "actual" vampire. There is no such thing as vampires, or haven't you heard? It's fiction, it's fun.

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…

Letter To My Sandwich

Dear Grilled Cheese Sandwich,

I just wanted to say thank you for being so yummy and keeping me full during these hard economic times. You are always faithfully there ready for lunch, or a snack, and sometimes breakfast. The way the cheese melts between your two slices of bread, make you irresistible to walk away from and impossible to ignore.

I love you completely with my whole heart. You were the only one who helped me through my college years when I was just new to the adult world. You helped me make the transition back into eating after quitting acting. You guided me through many a late night working in animation those first few years. Now you are back to help me survive through this hiatus.

I will always be grateful that you are there, cheap and easy. Your ability to keep me full for an entire week and yet not requiring that I empty the piggy-bank to do so means more than I can ever express. I believe that we will be seeing a lot of each other in the next few weeks until I start …
