Oh, I am giddy with the possibilites of more Twilight-themed posts! I think I am the only female I know who hasn’t read it, doesn’t want to read it, and it disgusted of hearing about it ALL THE TIME.
You are not alone, christi. I started to read the first one because some of my friends kept pushing me to do so, raving about it. I could not finish it. The Edward character especially got on my nerves. What a bunch of creepy drivel it all is.
As for the post, Marc was a bit harsh in his response to the Twilight waffling, but I can’t really say I blame him. Also, lol.
@christi – SAME. HERE. I am so tired about hearing about friggin’ Twilight. Glittering vampires: WTF? A friend dragged me to that movie and I got lots of glares because I couldn’t help laughing at certain parts. And I eventually just walked out. I couldn’t take it anymore.
Surely that’s a very responsible place to leave him? It’s hardly like they left him somewhere he would be hurt. Then again, British police do tend to have a bit more sense of humour and would’ve probably just taken a photo and returned him home.
Why are you guys all hating on Twilight??! I think it’s fantastic that it shows such strong morals to the youth of today. Abstinence, premature nanna-like behaviour, and a strong desire to be utterly controlled by the one you love.
If it were British police I would totally think this was funny. Not here. I’m not sure about the whole twilight thing but whatever it is, it’s fans have a serious hater following. Maybe we should burn them like witches?
If I actually knew these people my advice would be this…Alex, these people are not your friends. Marc, I know you want everyone to like you and to have super cool parties and stuff but don’t pretend to be friends with people who you hate and then wait for them to get drunk to show them. This type of shit is what makes people bring guns to school and judging by this Twilight fascination, you may want to stay home from school for a while.
The issue with twilight is that it’s meant for tweens and yet read by 18-22 year old girls in college that think it’s the greatest piece of literature ever written. It’s just some lame vampire book, and if you’re 12 years old and enthralled in it, more power to ya. However, if you’re over the age of 16 (maybe pushing it), and you love twilight, then you should reevaluate your life.
Twilight is/are books for people who hate reading and books.
I quite agree that this was a seriously funny prank. Marc doesn’t necessarily hate Alex, he just got annoyed by him, and tried to teach him a lesson. Alex needed to learn to be a man. Sure, telling girls that you love Twilight might be a good way into their knickers, for the reasons mentioned above, but not when you’re with the boys. Alex obviously wasn’t that pissed off either, because he still has Marc on his friend list.
I agree the writing isn’t the best in the books but I’ll admit I still love them for the humour. Granted the main character annoys the hell out of me and I hate the glittering thing/out in the sun ’cause I’m a stickler for keeping the myths and legends the same. I’ll also say I’m 18 (female), don’t need to re-evaluate my life (I don’t take the books seriously LOL) and thought the prank was hilarious!
But anyway, I’ll stop taking up everyones time, I’m only a newbie on here after all.
Bella is the single most insipid character I’ve ever had the displeasure of reading about. Whatever individuality she had in the first five pages, disappears as soon as she meets that pussy Edward. What a joke.
Go read some Poppy Z. Brite.
On a side note – absolute GOLD! What a fucking funny night that would have been!
Good to know there are people who like the books and still understand that they are not the pinnacle of romantic literature. I’ve read all four and can’t stand them, but props to you for being a sane fan.
Good job, Marc! It’s bad enough hearing my 30 year old best friend (who’s not obese, Mike) go on & on about “Twilight”; I can only imagine the physical pain that would be brought on by hearing a dude do the same.
This “saga” is the most poorly written example of literature I’ve ever seen & the psychotic fans of this series deserve everything they get.
That said, when does “LOST” premiere again…?
ok, I’m a big fan of Twilight, more so of the books than the movies, but I do admit, this situation with Alex is hilarious. What I don’t appreciate, however, is all this dissing of Twilight, you heartless, cynical fuckers. And I assume you’re probably all guys, too. Figures. And, no, you’re not GAY if you’re a guy who likes Twilight. That term shouldn’t be thrown around so loosely, anyway.
And Moonchild, I’m sure there are guys who like the book — manipulative dicks who are gonna take a page out of Mr. Sparklecock’s Dictionary of Douchery and go after the morons who think that shit is romantic. Worst. Couple. EVER.
I also enjoyed reading the Twilight series. I accept that it isn’t, by any means, the pinnacle of romantic literature. It’s light, fluffy reading and it’s cute. I’m a 26 year old female, have a boyfriend (who is nothing like Edward but I wouldn’t dump him just because of that! ) and I love reading, to the point where I founded a book club. You can’t immediately write off every person who has read and enjoyed Twilight as being an imbecilic moron just because there are a few (or more than a few) out there who are!
I do think that Twilight has one of the most obsessive fan groups in recent times but then again, what about Beatlemania? I’m sure there were girls in the 60s who were just as annoying as the teenie bopping Twilight fans! It’s fine not to like the series but there’s no need for everyone on here to be making sweeping statements about the entire fanbase.
All that being said, I think this prank was hilarious! Poor Alex, that’s the risk you take when you get blind drunk. He’d probably do something to one of his friends if he was given half the chance!
How judgmental of all of you. Hardly any mention of the kid committing a crime by drinking underage, yet you go after Twilight like it actually matters. Of course each and every one of you would scream blood murder if someone attacked something YOU enjoyed. What hypocrites.
Actualy i’m a guy who’s read the whole series, it’s quite good actualy, and i’m well versed in literature, to the point where i have a very large personal library, oh and there aren’t any werewolves in twillight, they’re actualy shapeshifters who just happen to change into wolves.
