Werewolves Should Be Hairy!:Origins

June 29, 2011

            Whoo! Today is a pretty noteworthy date for me. It’s the first anniversary of   Werewolves Should Be Hairy! It may not seem like it’s a big deal, what with the lack of revelry going on site and in the real world, but it really is. I had been talking about creating a blog like this since early 2009, and after going back and forth with myself trying to figure out what it would be about/ what I would call it, I finally settled on it being a blog describing why I disliked the Twilight franchise of books and movies, other posts you’d be able to find in your typical run of the mill blog, and whatever else I may choose to write about. I didn’t want to write alone, so I asked Tabrias if he wanted to be a co-author.

            After awhile, he was finally on board and we were set to start.  When I came up with the idea for the site, it was during the time when being anti-twilight was the cool thing to be. You know, just hating for the sake of hating. I didn’t want this blog to be like that, so Tabrias and I decided that we would actually read and watch the books and movies (exposing ourselves to detrimental health conditions in the process), and actually find out  why we should hate it. [I’m not hating on fans of Twilight with this site. If you enjoy it, good for you. To each their own.] A year later, and Tabrias has mostly completed his task (watching and reviewing the movies), and I? have not even remotely began reading the books…Which looking back, Tabrias got the better deal.

            He only has to deal with movies that are 2 or so hours long, while I have to slog through 2,446 pages 2,446! of story. That’s like…reading War and Peace 2 times and getting halfway through a 3rd reading. According to Tabrias the movies are way more heinous than he thought they were going to be, so we’ll see who got the raw deal eventually. So, the blog was finally set up and we began writing. Activating the blog was a bit like having a building everyone is excited to see built, but after the excitement wore off, the blog was pretty much forgotten about over time until I came back and revitalized it. 22 posts in one year…that’s got to be some sort of blog record for non-blogging blogging. I should really get motivated and write more..like serial.

            Anyways, I wanted to have some sort of contest or giveaway in order to celebrate, like girlgonegeekblog.com did, but I wouldn’t have been able to do anything like that for two reasons: low on funds, and this blog has a non-existent fan base. :\. I guess there’s always next year! However, I’m not ruling out the possibility of some sort of giveaway happening in the future. Although, this whole thing kind of fits with who I am personally, because the first anniversary of the site has come and gone with little to no fanfare, like every other major milestone that has occurred in my life. (I’m actually being serious here.)

            Anywho, here’s to more years of Werewolves Should Be Hairy! And now, for those of you who wondered how the site came to be, the following is an excerpt of the actual conversation that took place between Tabrias and I which lead to the genesis of the site. The full version is over 18 pages long, so due to that and our IM sessions being random, cuss-filled chats with topics that don’t go anywhere, I had to edit a few portions from it. (I’m delgaman23 by the way.)  Rated T for Teen for mature language and themes.:

monkey_scratch_inc_0007@yahoo.com (E-mail Address … (11/19/2009 8:26:43 PM): I mean, that’s the worst interpretation of a werewolf ever

delgaman23 (11/19/2009 8:26:50 PM): haha well i told ally that i want to read the book, then that way i can have an understanding of why i should hate it

monkey_scratch_inc_0007@yahoo.com (E-mail Address … (11/19/2009 8:28:18 PM): it looks like something out of a video game

monkey_scratch_inc_0007@yahoo.com (E-mail Address … (11/19/2009 8:28:31 PM): I meant a low budget video game

delgaman23 (11/19/2009 8:28:44 PM): yea sure, he’s supposed to be a “native American”, but what the fuck

delgaman23 (11/19/2009 8:28:59 PM): at least morph into anthropomorphically
