A friend texted me the other day to say that she was watching the news and they were saying that thanks to TV series and books like True Blood and Twilight, they are seeing an increase in occult-related crimes… REALLY?!
Honestly, at first I was trying to imagine how they got to that conclusion, I couldn’t help but to image them interviewing people who got arrested lately and asking, “So, what books or movies have you been into lately?” or “Hey, weren’t you wearing a coat like Edward Cullen’s when you were picked up?” * shakes head *
Just for how long should one blame video games, TV shows, and now, novels, before getting to the bottom line of the problem... parents needing to be parents!
As far as the news go... I wish they would devote a couple of minutes everyday to focus on good news, and there are plenty of those coming from some of our favorite vampires, and vampire related books and movies. Many authors and actors have been helping on blood drives, charities, etc. Look at Ian Somerhalder, Damon from Vampire Diaries, he even started the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, true that it is a great cause and I have no doubts that starting this project has nothing to do with him playing a vampire; yet, I’m sure that his character on Vampire Diaries, Damon (HOT vampire), had and still has a significant impact on exposure and donations in relation to IS Foundation.
Okay, guess I'm done venting. lol
