Ask Juliette: Popular Culture Edition

Ask Juliette

Ask Juliette (or Ask a Vampire) is a semi-regular feature here at

If you have a question you NEED to have answered, about anything send it to juliettevampiremom at gmail dot com, or put it in the comments here and I’ll answer it on the next Ask Juliette post.

So here we go. I have a lot of small ones this week.


Why don’t you like the violin player Lindsey Stirling. I think she is awesome.

Good, then YOU listen to her play her magical violin. I don’t know, I just find her extremely annoying and rather weird. If you like her than by all means I’m not going to stop you. Have fun.


 Why didn’t anyone in your family watch the Grammy Awards this year?

Because it is the same old shit every single year. There are so many talented and fantastic, and original artists who NEVER get recognized. I get tired of the Pink, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Jay-Z, and the rest of the “popular” artists. And I didn’t even mention my shock that the horrible Imagine Dragons song “Thunder” was nominated for anything. Really guys? You can do better than THAT. You used to be brilliant. What the F happened there?


What movie do you want to win Best Picture at the Oscars?

Unlike the Grammy Awards, I approve of the Oscar nominations. Of course, since Sacramento is my hometown, and I loved the movie, I’d love to see Lady Bird get as many awards as possible. I’d loved that Get Out was recognized. The rest of the films are all deserving. This is one of those years when the choice will be hard, but no matter who wins it will be ok.


Why don’t you like red pants?

We’ve gone over this before. Only small children (under ten years of age) and really old people (over eighty) should be allowed to wear red pants. Grown men should NEVER wear red pants, especially guys over thirty. So why don’t I like them? Because red pants look stupid on most people.


What if your favorite Vampire movie?

Nosferatu (1922) because it is so weird and creepy. As a rule I don’t like Vampire movies. I think my next three picks would have to be Love at First Bite, Interview With A Vampire, and of course The Lost Boys.



How do Vampires find food? It isn’t like you can just go to the grocery store.

Food is all around up. Most of us these days don’t depend on lurking around bedrooms, unless of course we’re invited. We find food at bars, and clubs. We find it at cultural events. Art events are awesome for food, as are concerts.

Most of us have several regular donors we go to. They might not know that they have their own Vampire, but they do. In return for being a regular we give them a certain amount of protection and favors.

Of course we get blood in bottles. Yes we do. And sometimes we DO eat real food. Just stay away from baked goods, sweets, and keep it simple but full of flavor. Poultry doesn’t set well with most Vampires. All things in moderation.

I get a lot of questions about this because everyone is fascinated with what we eat. Seriously folks it isn’t that interesting, but I’ll do more future posts on it.


What would your exotic support animal would you want to take on a plane?

A fresh water otter. If not that a large goat.


Alright that is all for now. Vlad’s Vampire Diary is coming up next. And remember if you have any questions about Vampires, relationships, fashion, paranormal stuff, books, following your dreams, anyone I talk about on this blog, parenting, kids, school, travel, cats, ghosts, or anything else you have just “Ask Juliette.”

Halloween Hotties: Movie Vampires

Countdown to Halloween with Vampires in the Movies.

I’m not a big fan of Vampire movies but I have to take off my hat and give a bow to the following Halloween Hotties!

George Hamilton – Love at First Bite (1979)


Of course this is just for fun. This movie definately gets the award for silly fun. You gotta admit George Hamilton as a Vampire is a Halloween Hottie of the first order.

Frank Langella – Dracula (1979)

Definately a Halloween Hottie! Oh baby! Take me now, right here on the dining room table next to my laptop!

My sister-in-law Verity did say “I just can’t get the idea of opening my eyes and finding myself in bed with Richard Nixon.” OK thanks for those charming visuals Verity.

Kate Beckinsale as Selene – Underworld (2003)

Selene is the ultimate Halloween Vampire Movie Hottie. Hands down. No discussing it.



“She reminds me of mom,” my brother Aaron said. “They could have based the character on her.”

I had to admit he was right. “But our mother has an entirely different view of Werewolves.”

“Pretty much,” I answered, thinking about my mom and her exploits. But then again, girls want to be like their mothers…or maybe they just want to be like Selene. I guess in my case it is both. But I’m not much like either one. Sure I can take down any Vampire Hunter or other evil force you throw at me, but, let’s just say I have a different style of going about it. That said, I’ll leave the dirty work to the professionals. Ahhh the joys of being a Modern Vampire.

Happy Almost Halloween! And don’t forget to check back this time next week for more Halloween Hotties!
