Badass Quote: Andy Futral/Robin Browne on ‘Harry Potter’ vs. ‘Twilight’ [updated]

| »
Harry Potter (‘Harry Potter’) and Edward Cullen (‘Twilight’)
Harry Potter vs. Edward Cullen

Andrew Futral is apparently the frontman for some indie rock group out of New York City named The Age of Rockets. Also, he has it dead right on any moronic comparison between Harry Potter and Twilight:

Harry Potter is all about confronting fears, finding inner strength and doing what is right in the face of adversity …. Twilight is about how important it is to have a boyfriend.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. For good measure, I’ve added this to my Memorable Quotes.

UPDATE (10/20/11 9:10 PM) – Lightswitch in the comments informs me that Futral has since clarified that he took the quote from a certain Robin Browne (exact post unknown).
