...shocked the Twi-Hard community...

That made a lot more sense to me before my head corrected one little misread letter....

/ also, it must be a terribly sad life you lived if reports of your death identify you primarily as a "Twilight fan"

If she would have put some of that vampire sparkle crap on her skin, maybe the driver would have seen her earlier.

In my day the san diego comic con was great, because get this, it was ABOUT COMICS

No, she couldn't have been saved. Twilight is a plague. And it will eventually... DESTROY US ALL...DESTROY US ALL...DESTROY US ALL...DESTROY US ALL!!!

/ DESTROY US ALL!

Twilight... A story of a young girl's very hard life decisions between necrophilia and bestiality.

She was from my home town. In fact, I think I knew her family.

She will soon rise from the grave to drink the blood of the living.

Perhaps an Ironic tag would have been appropriate too, since didn't Sparkly save the "heroine" from a car accident in the first movie?

Ya wondered why the headline didn't go there. How dare subby not be fully up to date on the twilight book references!! I mean, um, purely for mockery purposes...
 
2012-07-11 09:17:46 AM  
I'm sorry.. but there's no way that a panel at a con is worth camping in line.
 
2012-07-11 09:18:41 AM  
and no pic of this young Twilight hottie fan... 53?! WTF is a 53-year old woman doing camping on a sidewalk (unless she's pushing a shopping cart with all her shiat in it).

/srsly, wtf
 
2012-07-11 09:21:32 AM  
This is a shame all around. It's a shame she didn't have the sense to wait for the signal. It's a shame the driver didn't/couldn't stop in time. It's a shame that this will hang over the con this year and probably bring about some sort of change in policy. It's a shame Twilight is that big at what used to be an awesome comic book convention. It's a shame this woman will be remembered primarily as a Twilight fan.

What's sad is she was a 53-old "Twilight" fan.

It's sad how no one can like things after the age of 40.

What would you call a 53 year old man that watches children's shows? What if he sat in line for a week just to get into a convention full of teens-20ish people?

Have you ever been to a comic con? I haven't. I assume people of all ages go to those things. Also, people read. Old people, young people, etc. I'm not into the 'Twilight' saga, but I don't care if she is. The only person she hurt was herself.

Maybe it sucks, maybe it doesn't. You can have "bad taste" at any age. Too bad she didn't look both ways before she crossed the street.

It's sad that the woman died, regardless of what she love and whether or not you hate/love it.

I'm not a Twilight fan by any stretch (but I'll own up to having watched them with the Rifftrax guys playing in the background), but we all have our fandoms that people who aren't into them will ridicule/not understand/etc. I've seen people wig out about their favorite sports team, gun collection, political party on nearly the same level as the most die-hard Twi-hard. I can only hope that when I'm in my 50s/60s/70s (the good lord a'willin), I'll still have things I feel passionate about...even if it's just a movie or tv show.

I feel bad that my first thought on reading the article was "A good start"

Ok, I don't feel all that bad.

Maybe a little.

Not really.

Here's my CSB on that peripheral demographic:

- I write/draw indie comics. No, you haven't read them. That's how hipster/indie they are. :) But I go to conventions to hawk them, do sketches for people, and I also sell paintings of stuff I do. On a lark, I did a painting of Derpy (the cross-eyed pony) from the series, and it was far and away what everyone came to see at my booth (God forbid they check out my comics! :) )

Now, I put a decent price tag on what I paint, so I had a lot of "Wow! I want to get that Derpy painting but I don't want to actually PAY what he's asking for it!" So after about the third or fourth one of those, I made the brilliant move/tactical error of saying I'd do a sketch of any pony they wanted for $10. After that person calmed down, they took their sketch and showed their friends, who showed their friends, who shared it with some families with kids.

End of day one I had a commission list of pretty much nothing but ponies (with a smattering of "regular" sketches thrown in for good measure).

By day two it was non-stop. Now what's interesting is that it wasn't just Bronies (teen to adult male fans of the show). I had a lot of women (old and young) and a bunch of little kids (who thought it was cool (and not creepy, thank God!) a 43-year old knew his ponies (yes, they quizzed the hell out of me on it!)).

End of the convention, I'd made a lot of kids smile, did a ton of sketching, and bought myself a much needed new grill with the proceeds. And yes, someone did buy the Derpy painting.

So I think the show must reach every possible age group - which is what some of the best cartoons are able to do.

/End CSB

The only worthwhile thing to come out of Twilight was Ashley Greene. Thankfully, I don't have to watch the movies to see her:

Here's hoping that next year she'll show up at AVN.

I'd probably call him a Sailor Moon cosplayer.

It's amazing how many farkers loathe the Twilight series, yet are so familiar with it. I can just picture a bunch of fatass studmen sitting in their moms' basements surrounded by empty cheetos bags and biatching about how the series is an affront to literature while they devour every word.

/The lady doth protest too much, methinks?
 
2012-07-11 02:14:39 PM  
That's pretty sad, being killed right before you could do something that you love (no matter how bad it is).

Maybe she should've watched this video about road safety for pedestrians and drivers -> Bad Ass Granny: Road Safety for Pedestrians and Drivers

But then again she didn't survive after getting hit :(

Who is "so familiar with it"? I know it has a sparkly vampire named Edward and a chick named Bella. There's a werewolf. They fight.

That's pretty much it and you can learn all of it from just watching the TV commercials for the movies.

Project much?
