Angry Hulk Smash - Idle Ranting and Dubious Pursuits

If you want to rant about something, just tear into it like no fucking other until its mother is crying at the tattered pieces you left of its soul, then this is the place. This is where fun comes to die and being an asshole is the creme de la creme of awesome, because everyone (and I do mean everyone) needs to be ripped from their personal pedestal and waterboarded with the truth every once in awhile. Why do it yourself? Because destroying people with colorful language is just plain fun.

My first entry into this hall of bitter bile is inspired by working roughly 16-20 hours every day and yet having no control over the end product, and also because True Blood is just the erotica version of Twilight. Also lack of sleep and the use of legally obtained and properly used psychoactive pharmaceuticals...but that's normal for me.

True Blood Is For Emo Sexless Bitches - You know, for all my hate on Twilight, it's not exactly new to the pack in terms of pure creepy plus utterly fucking retarded. True Blood is based on a bunch of romance novels that have existed for decades, and the story changes pretty much nil in terms of graphic sex, retarded dialogue, and vampires with ridiculous nouveau riche attitudes. It's purely T&A except it caters to the lonely, horny guys and girls who somehow think corpses and dogs have an element of "sexy" about them. Do you know what werewolves probably do when they're morphed? Sniff each other's asses, that's what. Yeah, that's right they're fucking dogs, oh, excuse me, wolves. The whole fucking point is they're vicious animals with the intellect of a human...but a wolf gets more information out of shoving their shnozz into ungodly places than they do anything else. So yeah, werewolves...ass sniffing, ball licking, shit for breath animals. Vampires are just dead, you want to fuck that...you're a necrophiliac. You want them to eat you, you're an emo bitch who doesn't have the stones to kill yourself. They drink your fucking blood because they're hungry, not because it's in any way erotic, so if that's what you get off on you're a suicidal idiot. Oh and you want to become a vampire? Well guess what the symbolism of vampirism is? You don't know? Oh alright then...rape. You want to rape people constantly. That's the fucking symbolism there people, you're a zombie rapist who eats their victims instead of just dicking them to death. Oh you're special though, I'm sure, because you think you've got an excuse. You'd only drink cow's blood, you did it to become immortal, you somehow didn't mean to become a vampire in your fantasies. You know what, that's fucking bullshit. Becoming a vampire is a horrific process that leaves you a soulless dick bag who's doomed to walk the earth terrorizing every damn thing that exists and finally live out their days starving to death once they suck the world dry. You're a parasite, a filthy, disgusting, shit for brains parasite who's allergic to imaginary water, perpendicular intersections, and wood.

Hey, so long as you don't mention things specific to individuals no one's going to fault you for unloading your pent up anger. I just do it because my current work keeps me from speaking my mind elsewhere (where it's not anonymous) and I'm a natural critic.

Just find something that riles you up, figure out the root cause of it, and expound on your hatred of that instead of focusing on the individuals themselves.

For instance, I fucking loathe Entertainment Television and MTV, but my close friends and business partners somehow find it more worthwhile to watch than the Daily Show. So, day in and day out, I find myself staring with seething hatred at Chelsea Lately and her overly dramatic and often just plain bigoted shit spewing face wishing I could take a blunt object to the producers who think television needs to be filled with vapid worthless disgraced douche fuckers like her.

See, I didn't insult my friends there, I insulted Chelsea Lately. Considering you probably want to deal with subjects closer to here, just remove the "my friends" part and suddenly it's purely about some ugly ass whore.

I'm fucking sick of religious mouth-breathers. I don't mean anyone with a religion or religious convictions, I'm talking about the assholes that can't fathom the possibility that there may be people out there that don't share their world view and still hold any merit at all. Close-minded people like that have really been grinding me lately. It feel like every time I turn around, I have some redneck Bible-thumping illiterate telling me about how I'm headed to Hell because I don't attend their church and I don't read their translation of the bible.

Oh no, I support a woman's right to choose to have an abortion, I think homosexual men and women should be able to marry and receive the same benefits as heterosexuals, and I *GASP* support health care reform! Sorry if you read the Bible and come away with "if they don't think like you, they're fucked!" Maybe in the Old Testament when eating shrimp was punishable by being banished from society, and masturbating got you marked as a degenerate pervert.

That's not what I got when I read your Bible. Fuckers.

I don't know how you can live without that health care reform. It's not like an entertainment good, it's health care. It's like education, it's a needed thing. Here in Europe (or most of Europe) we have it public, and no, we aren't raging communists or zealotry socialists.

The problem with most of your politics there in USA, imo, is that people still fear anything that hints at left-wing politics.

And most of that comes from your own politicians using that to their advantage.

Well, in the end, every single goddamn democracy is rotten. Ah, and in case you wonder, Spain's come first .

It's funny about true blood- I cannot stand the show (I hate the American south, I hate vampires, and I hate people who randomly have sex for no reason), but the woman who wrote the series that it is based off, the "Sookie Stackhouse Mysteries", is actually a close friend of the family. Charlaine Harris actually mentored me a bit when I started writing, so I find it hard to hate the show "too" much, even though every thing about it is an affront to my senses.


Really, though, I just want vampires to be monsters again. That's why I liked Vampire: The Masquerade. You have a couple of "pretty" vampires, yes, but even then they were pretty morally bankrupt, but you also have your completely repulsive vampires, like the Nosferatu, Brujah, and my favorite, the Tzimisce.

So much this.


Another thing that pisses me off is related to this. Why do people feel the need to sex everything up? I'm all for a reinterpretation of things, but when it gets to the point where you discard the fundamental lore behind it, you're just creating a new genre. And in most cases, it's a shitty one.


Also, I'm pretty sure I'm not a Christie Golden fan; she claims to have created the vampire elf character, and is GODDAMN PROUD OF IT!

At least the Vampire Elf characters we know are somewhat sick and evil and done have sex constantly....

Your looking waaaaaay to much into the Elf bit lol. They resemble more of a vampire than any of this modern shit thats on the TV lately.

My problem is that when you start making Vampires too sexy and start taking away their defining characteristics, they're not vampires. I once said that if you were to replace the word "vampire" with "incubus" and "succubus", most modern vampire romances would make far more sense.

People who say a class is a race.. when the source that introduced it in the first place says it is a class... yet people still want to call it a race... then they just respond by saying you are the one interpretating the source incorrectly.

Ever read, or watch, Let the Right One In? Its a pretty excellent vampire story involving a human loving a vampire. Its played off pretty well though since its mostly just a boy loving a girl, and not because shes a vampire but rather because of who she is. Theres actually a lot where he figures out shes actually a vampire and him having a lot of trouble coming to terms with it.

(those who know the story, please dont point out the errors in that post and ruin the story)

If you watch the movie though I must warn you, go with the subtitles over the dub. The dub is pretty awful.

Actually, just read the book first. It explains alot that isnt explained in the movie.

This actually reminds me of an urban fantasy setting I had brewing in my head a few months ago. It really came about because I didn't like the way vampires were being portrayed in general, so I had the idea of making them more-or-less addicts. pale skinned, gaunt people sitting on the curb in rundown neighborhoods hoping that one day someone drives down the street with their car doors unlocked so that they could grab them out of the vehicle and get their fix. No fangs, just a bunch of folks hooked on blood who'd rip a person's jugular open with their molars if that's what it took. Now I'm kinda thinking I may start doing something with it.

The vampires in my setting are a group of beauty-obsessed foppish nobles who refuse to accept the fact that, now that they're undead, they're gonna look ugly. They've modified their biology to the point where they produce a special enzyme that they can inject into their prey through their fangs, which liquefies their innards and they can then drink the nutrient-rich slop, much like a spider does. They then fashion these nutrients into skin, hair, etc. The problem is, though, that they're still DEAD undearneath all that skin and makeup. Because there's no blood flow beneath their skin they look like mannequins, and are even creepier to some than a "normal" decaying corpse.

In that same vein, stop spilling stupid into our minds. Maybe then we'll stop being fucking imbeciles about oil, the economy, the environment, & etc.

Of course the honest truth is that the only way to save the human race is to remove half of it from existence, but that simply isn't ethical so we're going to have to find another means in which to save our species from self destruction.

Or Frenchies. Let's just have a good ol' war with the French. No nuclear weapons, just a conventional war like the good old times.


And for my rant; how much Obama is going on about that oil spill. Hypocritical fucker.

Though I'm still glad he won, Obama has done some things that have really pissed me off. Like not do half of the thing he said he would. The difference is that if McCain was elected I wouldn't like the half of the things that were promised that were actually, done, but with Obama I like those
