Picking on legacy media is fun

Dear Time Magazine,

With your article “Zombies are the New Vampires” which reported on the “new” popularity of zombie entertainment media, I’d like to thank you for bringing something to my attention that I was reading about online in 2007.

It’s nice to know that if I’m looking for top notch investigative reporting and up to date information on the latest media trends, that Time magazine is only 2 years behind the curve! Good job, guys!

On an unrelated note, please do not compare zombies to vampires. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, the last 5 years have seen the utter destruction of the vampire as a cool movie monster, leaving us with vaguely homosexual teenagers that don’t even eat people. What exactly is the point of a vampire that can go outside during the day and doesn’t eat people/murder other vampires? NONE.


  1. But, you don’t understand. They’re sparkling vampires. 1/2 the calories, and you can take them home to mother without worrying about having them eat your family!

  2. Well, to be fair, there was “30 days of night” which actually had some pretty badass vampires. Though, they were mostly badass because they were somewhat like zombies…

  3. I was amused a few years ago to see a Time Magazine article on Home Star Runner, another internet phenomenon, only 6 or so months after my 9 year old introduced me to StrongBad et. al. on the website homestarrunner.com; I am sorry to hear that since then Time Magazine has slipped from 6 months to 2 years behind the curve.
