Check out the rad new teaser poster for True Blood which is coming back on June 14th. June too far away you say? Yeah, I’m with you on that. In the meantime, here’s a few goodies to hold you for awhile:

Electra/Atlantic Records will release the soundtrack featuring songs from Jace Everett, Lucinda Williams, Dr John and more on May 19th

Read about the PaleyFest True Blood panel discussion here

The next Sookie Stackhouse book will be out on May 5th

Still not enough? Tough. That’s all I got for now.

Guess what I’m doing this weekend?

I just started it and I kinda like it. Im reading a scene where the Bennett sisters take out a hoarde of “unmentionbles” using their martial arts training. Good times. Did you hear what book he’s tackling next? Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Not too sure about that one. I think the joke could get old fast. We’ll see.

*note how thrilled the cat is that I’ve started including her in the blog…this was the very next pic I took:

Warriors…come out and play.

It’s the 30th anniversary of The Warriors…30 years…geez I’m feeling old. I was in love with that movie, alot of it had to do with a bare chested Michael Beck. It was definitely a quintessential 70’s/early 80’s movie with all the feathered hair and shirtless leather vests…oh yeah and the disturbing Baseball Furies…anyone remember them? To celebrate the 30th anniversary, The Warriors is being turned into a comic book series, with a new video game to follow later this year. Check out the movie trailer, I swear it’s the same voiceover guy from Tarantino’s fake trailer ad for Machete.

I’m in a bad relationship.

key_art_ghost_hunters

Ok…I need to vent. Every week I watch Ghost Hunters, and every week they find NOTHING. Oh sure, occasionally they get some recording of a voice saying something unintelligible, and the ghost hunter guy always says something stupid like, “I believe it’s saying I AM HERE.” Yeah sure it did. Why do I torture myself? I think it’s an abusive relationship. I keep breaking up with the show and the next thing you know it’s tapping at my screen saying “C’mon baby…I’ll do better this time…let me in.” And so I do and the vicious cycle begins again. Ugh.

Apparently, I’m not the only one feeling a little burned by Ghost Hunters. Darby Conley’s included them in his Get Fuzzy comic.

Time to move on.

For you fellow Buffy fans that were still holding out hope for a Buffy movie, it’s time to give up that dream. Sigh. Oh well, I’ve got my comic books and memories at least…oh yea and this kick ass action figure. Do you remember that scene? The one where she rips Adam’s heart out and just kinda holds it out to him. If you look at the action figure you’ll see the heart in question. Sweet.

Taxes…ack.

I was feeling a little depressed with Tax Day coming and with me having no money and stuff, when I read that Ed Quinn, formerly of Eureka, has been added to the cast of True Blood. Yay! I’m much better now.

Yes, I watch True Blood. I love that show and cannot wait for it to return. It’s amazing to me how many people I run into who tell me they started watching it thinking it was going to suck (hah…see how I made a vamp reference there…sorry) but ended up really liking it. There’s murder and shape shifters and hot vampires that don’t sparkle. I mean really…what’s not to love? Check out the opening credits from Season 1 as sung by Jace Everett along with a few minutes from the premiere(warning: it does contain a few swear words and sexual references if you’re bothered by that kinda stuff).
