saga of the twi hippie – Part Four

6 07 2009

previously on twi hippie: (click here to catch up on Part Three)

mission accomplished, photo taken and potentially a new friend. a success by all measures.

despite our rocky start, he had become an endearing fixture in my daily life on that starbucks corner, in the lives of the other sigO’s and potentially in the lives of twi-hards worldwide via this blog. he was our twiGuy.

enter the interference by two renegade True Blood fans… we’ve been TWI-JACKED!

a dear friend from the quasi-rival True Blood camp, who shall remain nameless, caught wind of our quest to photograph The Hairy Twilight Man from the Meadow, and made some moves that have most likely spoiled any future growth for our relationship with the Twi Hippie. no more sightings, no chance of an interview. spoiled forever.

we'll call him "Jack"

we'll call him "Jack"

i mean let’s face it, we all love vampires for obvious reasons, but the True Blooders and the Twihards are usually at odds with one another. this is not ALWAYS the case, as i know that some of my very dearest sigO’s are True Blooders as well. it’s a personal opinion i have, so i disclaim it as such.

call it the horrorists vs. the romantics, or maybe it’s that the TB series takes a more purist approach to traditional vampire-lore, but there is definitely a bit of tension whenever the two groups collide in one social situation, and the Twi Hippie situation is no exception.

ok, we’ll call these frenemies Jack and David. Jack and David have been prank-calling Capitol Hemp (the unconfirmed place of employment for Twi Hippie) for a few days now. here is Jack’s recap of the Twi-Jacking:

“..I won’t even consider a vampire story that allows vamps to go in the daylight without dying. Plus I have already sworn my loyalty to True Blood. I do not mean to offend but True Blood is everything Twilight wishes that it was but isn’t.

YES I did call the hemp store. I do not know if I spoke to the Trustafarian but I did ask the guy who answered if he is the hippy who is always reading twilight at starbucks. the conversation went like this:

him: “I’M NOT NO HIPPY, COME DOWN HERE AND SAY I’M A HIPPY TO MY FACE”

me: “YOU STINKY HIPPY, I KNOW YOU’RE READING TWILIGHT”

him: ‘F&*K YOU, COME DOWN HERE”

click.

…my guess is accusing another man of reading Twilight sent him over the edge.
It’s always so great to get a rise out of someone over the phone and that guy lost his shit. the thrill of making a prank phone call will never lose it’s appeal.

I do plan on calling back.”

fear not, dear sigO’s, Jack has promised to stop on the basis of real life bromanship, but there is no guarantee that David can be stopped once he’s started on something as fun as prank calling. we just made this his most exciting game ever.

[note to self: David cannot be trusted]

we plan on confirming if the Twi Hippie does indeed work at that store, and if so, we’ll be promptly sending a basket o’ love to hopefully repair the damage done and hopefully blossom our relationship into future interviews and deeper studies of the TWILANTHROPUS VILLOPRATENSIS.

everybody wear your team whoever shirt on inside-out tonight and pray to the twi gods that David be stopped. we are running defense. may the twi be with you.
