all vampired out

Vampires are very popular these days. The HBO series "True Blood and the movie "Twilight" make them look gorgeous. A fashion magazine invites upcoming and established designers to sketch a dress for the vampire wedding of the century, and another vampire series, "The Vampire Diaries", will debut on the CW network next month (it will be shown on "Thirstdays"). In the light of so much vampire beauty, the less supernaturally inclined may indeed feel "all vampired out."

However, an Times article today notes an interesting twist: In order to promote the series, the network teamed up with the American Red Cross to sponsor a blood drive on more than 230 high school and college campuses.

Much better than the promotional articles distributed by CW, among them "fang floss" and "sunscream."
