The Raggedy Edge
Wednesday, March 16, 2011

So at book club today after school, we got into the inevitable discussion about being on "Team Edward" or "Team Jacob". I told my students that I had finally watched "Eclipse" and thought that soggy kleenex was more exciting that Edward (seriously - how can a vampire be that pasty faced and boring?), but that I liked the men from the Native American tribe, so I guess that makes me Team Jacob (but shoot me if I have to watch another one of those movies because I didn't like Bella much either).

This led to a discussion of great vampire characters. The kids have never heard of Anne Rice or "Interview With a Vampire", nor had they seen the movie....but Buffy? They've never seen Buffy? Or Angel? They have no idea who Angel and Spike are? Really? (!) Now I didn't expect any of them to know who LaCroix or Nick Knight were - that was from a long time ago (Lacroix is a totally sexy bad boy vamp for anyone who cares to go and look - he's not handsome, but whatever "it" was, he had in buckets), but to not know "Buffy"?

Needless to say, I am loaning out my first season of Buffy this weekend.

It's part of my cunning plan to lead them through the Whedonverse until I get them hooked on Firefly.

Thank you, zzetta13. In fact, I forgot to bring the Buffy DVD last Friday and she asked me when I was going to bring it, so it's in my book bag for tomorrow. :)

I'm sort of thinking of loaning her my Firefly DVD, too, but....maybe I'll never get it back!

I hate those movies too.. Mind, im told the writing in the books is worse than the movies, but who can say?
The vampire sparkles in sunlight. Hes like a care bear or something. That gives vampires a bad name!
Used to love buffy. Still sing songs from 'Once more with feelings' when in the shower. :)
