With Halloween right around the corner and vampires being all the rage this year, is it any wonder why I have vampires on the brain? So without further ado, here is Tmp’s roster for the 10 best movie vampires of all time!
#10 - Edward Cullen and the vampires of the Twilight Saga
With Eclipse about to be released on DVD and Blu Ray, Edward Cullen and the Twilight gang just had to make the list. With their vegetarian diet and their diamond studded, dazzling-in-the-sun skin, these vampires certainly gave us a lot to talk about. Edward Cullen in particular made females swoon with delight all over the globe with his brooding good looks and his undying and fervent love for the awkward Bella Swan. Even this humble writer was not immune to his charms. Talk about a vampire dream come true.
#9 – Marlow and the vampires from 30 Days of Night
Absolutely terrifying. »
Multiple Las Vegas institutions have released their odds on who's favored for Season 11 of "Dancing with the Stars," and some of the standings are more expected than others.
Still, Zap2it has its ideas of how this season will go down. So while the Sept. 20 gets closer and closer at hand -- it must be, because The Situation has finally joined rehearsals -- lets take a look at our competitors stack up.
Florence Henderson: When Aaliyah sang "Age Ain't Nothin' But a Number," she was justifying her (alleged!) secret teenage marriage to R. Kelly -- not septuagenarians in sequins. Mrs. Brady has a special place in all our hearts, but even if she skirts by for a few weeks, she'll absolutely never win.
Kyle Massey: Odds-makers have Massey in the lower end of the middle, »
On this day in 2001, the music world lost one of its true visionaries when Aaliyah, who was only 22 years old at the time, died in a plane crash along with eight other passengers after filming a music video in the Bahamas. Her tragic passing came just as she was releasing her finest album Aaliyah, which had come out only a month prior to hear death. Though she was only 22, she had still managed to become an industry veteran, as she appeared on "Star Search" at the age of nine and signed her first record deal at 12. She recorded her first album Age Ain't Nothing But a Number when she was only 14, and she had two Gold singles and a platinum album before her 16th birthday.

Tuesday night's (April 20) "American Idol" featured the Top Seven tackling "inspirational" songs in honor of "Idol Gives Back," that time of the season when Ryan Seacrest gets to say things like, "When you cast a vote you save lives!" and pat the "Idol" corporate sponsors on the back for donating money to charity.
Alicia "The Princess of Soul" Keys was on hand to mentor the contestants. "I want to teach them how to be part of something that's even bigger than them," she said. Um, the only thing bigger than Michael Lynche is the continent of Asia, so that might be a little tough, Alicia. But I applaud the effort.
Before I go on a rant about Kara's hair, let's get to the performances!
Song: "Don't Stop" by Fleetwood Mac

Alicia Keys urged Casey to connect with "one of the biggest songs in the whole universe, »

American author Anne Rice, whose works include The Vampire Chronicles and New Tales of the Vampires, is to feature in the biographical comic book series Female Force.
Film fans will recall that the first two novels of Rice's Chronicles - Interview with the Vampire and Queen of the Damned - have been made into movies. The first starred Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt, while the second featured Aaliyah and Stuart Townsend.
The Rice issue is the fourth in Bluewater's Female Force series to focus on creators of supernatural fiction. The others were Twilight's Stephenie Meyer, True Blood writer Charlaine Harris and Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling.
It follows the novelist from her formative years in New Orleans through the tragedies that influenced the creation of her most popular novels and her fervent rediscovery of Catholicism. »
