The Twilight Bus in Galt: A Photo from the Field

One of funny things about real estate is I get to see what’s in style with kids these days. The posters on the walls of teenage rooms are like an education in pop culture. I constantly run into Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, and definitely characters from the Twilight series. Anyway, I came across a “Twilight Bus” while snapping comp photos in Galt a couple of days ago and this definitely caught my attention.

Oh the things I see. What do you think?

    That is hilarious. I’m not sure there is an analog to this cult phenomena in our generation. Maybe it skips a generation. I remember the older gen doing rocky horror, grateful dead, hello kitty? But a commitment to a book series and a film series? Now short buses. What next, 10 yrs down the road, a rio del oro subdivision based on Forks , WA? It’s better they’re immersing themselves in books rather than drugs.

      I know, Donald. It’s wild to see kids (and adults) obsess over Twilight and other books like Harry Potter. Like you said, it’s much better than turning to drugs. 🙂 For full disclosure, my wife is an avid reader and she pre-ordered the last Harry Potter book. I don’t know how this ended up happening, but on the night before the book came out we ended up at a book launch at a Barnes & Nobles at midnight in Southern California (while visiting family). There were hundreds of people there in front of the store and teens and kids dressed up like they went to Potter’s school and everything. It was actually really interesting to watch and to see the excitement in the air. It was great to see kids excited about something like this. But shh, don’t tell anyone I was there, okay.

    I have to admit that we were up at midnight of the release of New Moon on “Comcast On Demand”. 12:01am we were watching New Moon. Not like going out to a theater opening. Now, I went to the early release of “Star Trek” IMAX at the El Dorado Hills Regal Theater. I thought getting in a 1/2 hr would be early. We got 2 seats three rows from the screen, and were lucky to get ’em. Still enjoyed it. People dressing up, Giveaways, and of course, the movie was awesome.

      That’s funny, Donald. It’s movie confession hour apparently on this post. El Dorado Hills has a fantastic theatre. We saw Toy Story 3 there in 3D not long ago. Those types of shows are really fun to go to. I remember going to see Empire Strikes Back when it was digitally remastered and released in the theatre around 1996 or so. People were dressed up and there were prizes too (maybe something like your Star Trek experience). Lines can be very long at events like this, but like you said, it is well worth it. Good times.
