thanks for the encouragement everybody... i was trying to make this kind of an open
topic, and not all about me, but it does make me feel better to get some outside perspective.
i try to think of it from another point of view, and i don't get it. i'd probably do the same thing as you prophet, and say, "look over there joe, a firetruck!" (he likes way more boring stuff than i do, i don't know what the problem is.) and my little brother is ALWAYS talking about skateboarding, he's obsessed. but it doesn't annoy me... i find it endearing. same with my friend jen, rabid david bowie fan.
maybe this will help broaden the topic... most of us are here because we are at least mildly fascinated with undead creatures of some kind, but obviously "normal" people don't want to talk about theories or whatever, and that's why we need a forum. so i imagine that all of us kind of limit our conversations somehow to not be always talking about zombies and vampires...
or do we? where's the line? (wasn't that dramatic?)

i know! i try.... it's not like i alway say, "OMG, the beatles, i love them, ringo played the drums." i know a lot of shit about them! i think it's interesting to know that george harrison wrote a song about eric clapton's teeth, or that paul mccartney wrote a song about his dog. i love that about him. le sigh.
