Today's word in the TWENTY/TWENTY meme is "mystery."
Mysteries don't interest me much. Sure I like an occasional film or book with mysterious elements... but when it comes to the grand scheme of things, there's no burning desire in me to seek out mysteries and solve them. This is unfortunate, because ancient mysteries seem to be a big tourist attraction no matter where I go. Over the years I've been to a lot of so-called "mysterious places," and appreciate them as interesting remnants of the past, but that's about it.
Places like Newgrange...
And, of course, the Egyptian Pyramids...
But the mysteries surrounding these places pale in comparison to a modern-day mystery that is going on right now... how in the hell can a film which has a romantic triangle involving a choice between necrophilia and bestiality be considered "romantic?" I've never understood the fervor surrounding all this Twilight bullshit, but the whole "Team Edward vs. Team Jacob" crap has me completely baffled...
Stupidest vampire and werewolf ever. Where's Professor Van Helsing when you need him?
In other news... I like the way that my iTunes "Genius Mixes" arranges Third Eye Blind's Blue on top of Eve6's Horrorscope in order to paint in the top of the manga babe's head... WITH FIRE!!
Bwah ha ha haaa! Sweet!

Now those are my kind of mysteries!
I see you’re not a “Twi-hard.” ;-p
If you think the Twilight movies are bad, try reading the books. Actually, don’t. I like you too much to inflict that sort of horror on you.
P.S. Team Jacob OMG!!11one!!eleventy!!1!
P.P.S. I just punched myself in the face. You’re welcome.
Hmm, I love ruins but I hadn’t really thought of mystery as being part of their appeal. I’m drawn to the aesthetics and fascinated by the accomplishments of people thousands of years ago. Mystery may fall in there somewhere, but perhaps all the archaeology books I’ve read has diluted it.
I agree Twighlight and the craze is definitely one of the big mysteries of the century! lol
I wanted to thank you for inspiring me to start an actual website for Scott Plank. I know yor very busy but if you get the chance please check it out and tell me if i’ve done him justice. http://rememberingscottplank.webs.com/
I hated that we were in England for a spell but didn’t have time to make it out to Stonehenge. I reckon we’ll just have to go back.
I share your sentiment re: the Twilight characters.
Oooh, I loved Third Eye Blind. Totally forgot about them until reading this. Jumper was awesome. Also that one that went “did not graduate” or something.
I saw someone wearing a t-shirt that said: “And Buffy slayed Edward. The End.”
And I’ve been searching for it online ever since….
