True Blood Blood Copy: Gawker and Not all out of the coffin

May 22nd, 2009

I think I’ve strung you along far enough, huh? OK, here’s the big news I’ve been hinting at all week.

After I started posting again last week, Gawker Media realized that they simply could not live (so to speak) without having on their roster of websites. As of next week, we will officially be under the Gawker umbrella, joining sites such as Gawker, Gizmodo, Kotaku, Jalopnik, Lifehacker, Deadspin, Jezebel, and io9. Hope they can handle us.

So for those of you who’ve been following us all along… You don’t need to change a thing. Just keep on typing into your browsers and let us take care of the rest.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: there are more things about vampires than are dreamt of in your philosophy. But I know a lot of them. And I’m finding out about more. And I’m willing to share with the class. So stick with BloodCopy - and Gawker - and we’ll bring you all the news that’s fit to print (and some that’s not) about vampires.

Despite the fact that there seems to be growing acceptance of vampires in daily life (as seen in Monday’s airing of the L.E.S.) , there are those of us who are reluctant to take that step out of the coffin. I can fully appreciate their reasons for protecting their true identities. Although I don’t like to speak about my own personal issues here, it’s true that since coming over, I’ve witnessed some of the most bigoted human behavior that I thought possible. The emailed death threats are only part of it.

So I have a great deal of admiration for my fellow vampires who make their existence known, but I also have deep understanding for those who do not. And believe me, there are more vampires out there than anyone can fathom. Many of them are even known to you as various celebrities, sports stars, CEOs, or politicians. Along with the computer programmers, plumbers, managers, chefs, monks, and salesmen - those everyday sorts that you interact with all the time and never paid a second glance… until now.

Being a vampire, I know a lot of things that humans are not privy to. Not all of it is strictest secret - it’s just that vampires never thought about sharing that information before. Now that humans seem to be taking the baby steps in making our coexistence work, we’re doing our part as well.

And it’s only going to get bigger, because—ah shoot, I almost gave it away again, didn’t I? Don’t worry, just one more day until the big reveal.
