Bandwagon, This Way. All Aboard!

Earlier this month, the New York Times featured an article titled A Trend with Teeth (see this previous blog entry). It looks like the Times isn't the only publication to jump of the "let's document the vamp-craze" bandwagon. On July 16, Newsweek featured a vamp themed article titled, cutely enough, Bite Me! Why We Love Vampires.

This is a fascinating article. It covers some of the vampire trends in pop culture, the history of the mythos, the more popular (and reoccurring) fantasies, and even the psychology behind the intense sexuality that so many seem to associate with vampires.
