Transylvanian Concubine

Ten minutes ago I finally published my disturbingly long review of the YA novel Twilight, which I read a couple of weeks ago. It took me almost as long to write the review as to read the book, and honestly, I could have said more, but my fingers were exhausted.

I have recently become obsessed with making music videos (or video remixes, whichever is more PC), for no goddamn reason other than I like to edit and I have nothing else to edit right now, so why not take a movie that isn't mine and a song that isn't mine and put them together and see how long they stay up on YouTube before I get called out for copyright infringement.

I made the following video remix for several reasons:
  • The aforementioned too much free time.
  • I've had Twilight on the brain since seeing the film and reading the book and otherwise being assaulted by it everywhere on the Internet from Amazon to the Huffington Post.
  • I really love the song Transylvanian Concubine by Rasputina and, by god, those two go well together.
  • My Firefly music video hasn't been getting very many hits and I thought I'd capitalize on Twilight's popularity and try to draw more people to my other YouTube video.
And thus,

The Twilight Music Video - Transylvanian Concubine

was birthed.

Here are the Transylvanian Concubine lyrics, to heighten your viewing pleasure.

If you want to know how
To fly high then go now
To the place where all the concubines...

Meet and converse with them
Marvel at their pale skin
Wonder how they chew on their pointy....

Teeth and hair are beauty
They know it's their duty
To be Countess in their hearts and their....

Minds that have to whisper
See in them a sister
Look into their eyes and you'll become

Transylvanian Concubine
You know what flows here like wine
Stay here with us, it's just time

Transylvanian Concubine

Sorrow is their master
Cackling with laughter
Now he's having just one piece of....

Cakey is their make up
Catholics try to shake up
All the things that form their lives, but they're....

Dead, their sighs their song
They know what they do is wrong
Stay here with us, it's just time
Transylvanian Concubine

Candelabra's lighted
Satan has been sighted
Never has there been an evening like....

This is what they wanted
Always to feel hunted
You can never be to rich or too....

Thin. The blood had run out
Fangs ruin any cute pout
Morning has come now they've flown
What have you learned from what has been shown?

Nice, I enjoyed the video! Honestly, you made the movie seem more interesting than it actually was, lol.

The lyrics to the song were pretty engaging. Definitely fits with this video. <3
