Vampires live among humans openly, now. We have become a visible part of your lives. We are not a spectacle, or a mere source of amusement. This world is as much ours as yours. I could not appreciate this fully until I became a vampire, myself. That is why I have returned to BloodCopy. I’ve taken a site my human self began as an exploration of vampires, and turned it into an exploration of humans and vampires alike. A chronicle of how the two learn to coexist in this brave new world. It remains to be seen how this relationship will develop, but no matter what comes to pass, you will find it here.
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 BloodCopy.com 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 bloodcopy.com 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.

NOT ALL OUT OF THE COFFIN
May 21st, 2009
I'm not sure what's worse - that this kind of business exists, or that humans are directly involved in it. http://bloodcopy.com/?p=615
Is it ironic that I still want to play QB for a team called the Saints? http://tinyurl.com/qzjgh8
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. Promise.

What a terrible, sad state of affairs. It disgusts me not only to see vampires enslaving humans for their own means, but they have other humans acting as slave masters. Truly foul behavior on both parts. There are enough legitimately interested humans to fulfill the needs of the vampire population. There is no need to entrap them against their will, enslave them, treat them as chattel. Evil isn’t just limited to vampires or humans. Evil is a choice these individuals have made. And the victims are left to live - and die - with the consequences. My only hope is that the show that aired this footage will work just as hard to assist the authorities in the apprehension of the criminals that appear in it.

VAMPIRES, VAMPIRES, EVERYWHERE
May 20th, 2009
So here’s a question for you, dear readers: what do you think of when you hear the word “Vampire”? Do you think about sex and V and vampire clubs and music with pounding bass lines? Really??? Vampires have been around for thousands of years and you think all we’re good for is putting on a good rave? Clearly your parents haven’t taught you the evils of stereotyping. With all that vampires have to offer you, all the effort we’re putting into this relationship, why do you keep slapping labels on us? No, we don’t all wear capes. No, we don’t all crave the blood of innocents. No, we don’t all wield whips. No, we don’t all ravish your women and oh by the way, we can see ourselves in mirrors. We’re trying, here. We’re reaching out to you. You may not want to shake our hands, but at least put down the stakes when we offer them.

A NEW PERSPECTIVE
May 20th, 2009
Not to get too big a head, but it appears that BloodCopy is getting some attention. I’ve just gotten a copy of the latest episode of THE PERSPECTIVE, hosted by Victoria Davis, and not only is she joining the growing vampire bandwagon by sharing video tidbits featuring we of the pale skin, but she even offers a direct shout out to yours truly (okay, to the site he runs… but close enough). For those who perhaps haven’t seen our earlier posts on a vampire busker, pissed off Goth bar owner, ATM Withdrawal gone awry, or clips from the latest episode of the L.E.S. , this show does a wonderful job of presenting and contextualizing said videos in an entertaining and tidy news segment. And for those who have seen them… let’s just say nothing’s lost in a repeat viewing, especially with added commentary by the unparalleled Ms. Davis. Seeing this truly brings a smile to my fanged face, and only further justifies the decision made by some very smart people to bring Bloodcopy — ah, wait I almost gave it away again, didn’t I? No worries, I’ll spill that secret soon enough.

I CAN SEE MY HOUSE FROM HERE!
May 19th, 2009
Okay, so while we don’t technically have the ability to fly, we can sure jump a hell of a long way. And we’re not really faster than the speed of light, but let’s just say that a casual jog for a vampire might look like a blur to you, dear readers. And while we’re not exactly juggling skyscrapers for fun and profit, we could definitely juggle you. I can hear you now. “What are you trying to say, Andrew?” Ah, so direct, so to the point. So now, now, now. Fine. What I’m trying to say is that all these abilities add
up to one excellent vampire pastime: sports. Some of you are probably aware of the various professional leagues that are contemplating allowing vampires to play (but only if each team gets one of us, to keep it fair). I’m here to tell you, having seen some of the wild-ass crazy crap that vampires get up to when they’re bored, sports are about to become 100% more interesting

It’s official, vampires have arrived. On television. Last night, the premiere episode of the L.E.S. aired, the first show to cast a vampire as a primary character. And while nothing’s official, based on preliminary viewership estimates, it won’t be the last. Take note: nobody’s running for the pile of stakes or lurking moodily from behind a black velvet cape. The vampire isn’t staring longingly in a field of mist and a girl isn’t running through a forest, screaming for help. The show has actually dared to show vampires as they actually are, showing a real life situation many vampires face as they live openly among humans, in this case dealing with a girl’s open admission that it does make her feel differently about him. A brave and honest moment. Still, I’d rather see him end up with Stacy.

Beware the wolf in sheep’s clothing. Or in this case, that helpless little thing you’re stalking. For your consideration: one young woman, one ATM withdrawal, and one really, really bad day for a robber. Other criminals: beware. Stealing isn’t nice, and in the wrong circumstances being impolite could just cost you your life.

A NEW DAY
May 18th, 2009 First off: shout out to all the fans who’ve been with us from the beginning. Seems some of you have been around for quite some time… Lots of you have been asking about my new life as a vampire. Understandable, I would’ve asked the same when I was still among the breathing. But honestly, folks, this isn’t about me. It’s about us. This strange new ball of rock just getting used to the idea that humans and vampires are sharing real estate. Course, we vampires have known this all along, so really the odds are a bit stacked, but don’t worry, we’ll wait for you to catch up. In the meanwhile, some of you have jumped at the opportunity to profit from us, while others have unfortunately learned your old ways just don’t jive with the new order. There’ll be more bumps in the road, to be sure, but hey, isn’t that part of the fun? Perhaps I’m just feeling optimistic today. I’ve recently received an exciting bit of news, further proof of the progress vampires have made in becoming an accepted part of the mainstream. But more on that later.

A BUSKER FOR VAMPIRES
May 15th, 2009
Here’s a profile from the TBBN network about a smart human who realizes that there’s a mutually satisfying way to get along with the vampire world. He’s a street busker, or performer, who discovered that if he learned the old tunes vampires remembered from their youth, he could support himself handsomely. As I mentioned, many vampires have had a long time to build their coffers, and can count themselves among the well-off. Normally their money goes towards necessities and lifestyle maintenance. But in cases like these - where humans are providing a service they value- vampires can also prove themselves to be most generous tippers. Who knows. One day years from now I might even be compelled to offer vast sums of money to a street performer who’s bothered to learn about Grunge Rock.
