We all know that the creatures of the night have pretty much taken over the universe as we know it. Vampires, witches, werewolves, wizards, zombies etc. The undead, and even the freakish, have always fascinated our human intellect from Shelley to Pattinson.
The Twilight phenomenon has banked on that, and is profiting greatly off of the sexy allure of the unnatural.
First it was Ohhh Edward… then it was CHOOSE, Edward or Jacob, vampire versus werewolf. Hard pick, I know, both actors and characters have their positives and negatives. I would like to look at it on a broader spectrum, species, versus species.
There is the vampire, chilling, sleek, dark, oozing sexual power. You look into their eyes and are mesmerized by the deep, brooding soulful depths. The struggle between the life and death of blood, eternal life and a ancient culture unchanged by the test of fate.
Next the mighty, burly werewolf, strong, animalistic, a fevered heat that calls to be tamed. There is something about the wild and the untamed, the breaking of the stallion, the intensity of the inner battle the werewolf for control.
Witches and Wizards are all about the harnessing of power. Their everyday persona's are usually small, meek, eccentric, and average. That is until they learn how to harness the power of nature, spirits and the forces of good and evil.
I am going to break off here…while I was writing this blog post we received a warning of tornado sirens here in Texas. I would just like to say for the record, I would take an earthquake over a freakin tornado any day of the week. Let me explain, with an earthquake it is usually (with Japan being the exception) seconds and then done. With a tornado, you don’t know when, how, if and what. Am I going to die because a cow lands on my roof? I mean seriously…most people are the opposite but this is me!
Well unfortunately all of this drama killed the mood, so we will pick up with this next week. Till then, consider which is your favorite and why. Can you guess mine?
