Buffy vs. Twilight

What was that? You don't think I'm really that much of a nerd because I like buying school supplies? Ha, ha! Have I forgotten to tell you about my love of all things vampire? It's true. I blame it on a pubescence that coincided with the paperback release of Interview with the Vampire. Oh, and because Joss Whedon is awesome.

To prove my point, I sneakily watched part of this video at work, and then made my husband watch it with me again last night, just so I could see it on his shiny macbook without buffering interruptions:

I admit it. I love Twilight. Yes, yes, it has some problems which I'll get in to later (that post is a doozy) but VAMPIRES! Four books of 600+ pages of VAMPIRES! Okay, okay, the movie wasn't so great. None of them were really pretty enough to be vampires, and the grey/blue wash made me feel cold the whole time I watched it.

Which is why this video so freaking fantastic, because while I have a soft spot for Bella, my heart (and feminist principles) belong to Buffy. Though, I have to agree with Amanda at The Sexist, Buffy did make some questionable choices in dudes.


  1. This is great! I have not read any of the Twilight books nor watched the movie. I worry that if I do, I'll get really caught up in them and then the laundry will pile worse than it already is and the kids will be eating pop tarts for dinner and we'll all stop taking baths.

    Oh...and I too LOVE school supplies!! I always thought I was the only ONE! One perk (there are several, don't worry) to having kids is that there are always school supplies around the house!! We even have a craft closet! SWEET!

  2. Luckily since they are young adult you can burn through 600+ pages in a day. Four days on pop tarts isn't so bad.

  3. i don't care a lick about Buffy, Twilight, or vampires, but i still thought that was effing hilarious.


be nice.
