Fangtastic Friday: Waiting (for True Blood S4 still) Sucks…

*** Season 4 spoilers in the video & post below.  Do not click the Play arrow OR read on unless you want a sneak peek of what’s happening in S4! ***


OooooOOOooo, sexy-Eric and brooding-Bill shots.  Yum!  *grin*  Dead Reckoning is out this week, and it’s all about the Sookieverse!

With the talk of the “new coven in town”, I’m speculating just how much of S4 will coincide with the book and how much will be off on a tangent (hello, Marianne!)… and I’m really rooting for less down-the-rabbit-hole than more, after the out of control maenad plotline.  

This video segment must be from early in the season, maybe the first episode, since Eric still has some idea of who he is (enough to threaten Bill, anyway).  As far as I’m concerned, the more of the confused/tender/open Eric we get to see, the better!  I mourn the fact that Alexander Skarsgård has such short hair – how will Sookie braid it?!  /sniffle

Stay tuned for more Waiting Sucks preview snippets as we count down the days til the TB:S4 premiere!

Fangtastic Friday: Why vampires?

When I find a new series that interests me, I like to hit up the author’s website and troll around for juicy tidbits to blog about for all of you guys.  Sometimes I come across things that are humorous, educational, and even profound, which some people might be surprised to hear, considering most of these websites are dedicated to celebrating series about vampires, and hating on vampires is a fairly prevalent new trend.

While writing my review for the first Midnight Breed series novel (Kiss of Midnight), I came across something on Lara Adrian’s website that gave me an “AH HA!” moment.  Ever since I found Twilight and delved into the world of paranormal romance and urban fantasy, I’ve been at a loss to explain just exactly why it is that I enjoy this genre so much.  This passage, from Ms. Adrian’s homepage, sums it up quite nicely…!

Why vampires? Two of the most powerful human emotions are fear and desire. They rule many of our actions when we’re awake, and they inspire the most vivid dreams when we’re asleep. The intrigue of the vampire through the ages has been the twining of these two emotions–we fear him, yet his darkness is the very thing that makes him so compelling, so incredibly desirable. We can never be sure if we’re completely safe with him, yet we can’t stay away. Vampires as heroes in romantic fiction speak to the most basic instincts we know. They are the ultimate bad boy, and who can resist that kind of allure?

Have a fangtastic weekend!  *grin*

Stephen Moyer chats up True Blood for Bullett magazine

In an interview with Bullett magazine, appropriately titled “Return to the Soft Gore”, Stephen Moyer talks about being comfortable with Alex Skarsgard’s “bits”, his unexpected married life with Anna Paquin, the necessity of recycling, and his frequent fundraising efforts for various causes.  He also donned some glam over-the-top duds for his metro-goth rocker photo shoot. 

When asked about how married life with his co-star Anna Paquin (who plays Sookie Stackhouse in True Blood) is treating him, Stephen’s reply is sure to warm any Truebie’s bleeding heart…

“I’ve never been married before, and it wasn’t something that really entered my mind to do.  Then suddenly, in this relationship with Anna, I just couldn’t think of a good reason not to.  It just felt really right.  When you meet somebody you’re going to be spending the rest of your life with, it doesn’t seem right to call them your girlfriend forever, so I felt like I needed to be able to call her something else.  Now, I can shout “wife” quite happily.”

Stephen has a professionally cosmopolitan attitude, however, when it comes to sharing said wife on set and in racy photoshoots…

“She does get around a bit.  Alex {Skarsgård} and I have been very close since the beginning, and Joe {Manganiello} who’s playing Alcide now, we’re pretty close too.”

“Alex and I have gotten quite close to each other.  We have seen each other’s bits many times.  But I think the main thing is that Alex and Joe, when they have stuff to do with my missus, they feel like they’re free to do so.  There’s no point in me being territorial because, A: I don’t feel like that anyway because it’s work, and B: they need to feel like they can be true in their characters without me spying on them.  Even though of course I have a GPS loaded into Anna’s skin.  She doesn’t know where it is – I have actually buried it somewhere in her.”

On the somewhat unusual pairings we’ve seen in some of the TB episodes so far…

“I’ve had a couple scripts where I don’t get to suck any face, and it’s like ‘Oh, I don’t get to suck any face, I’m really bored!’  Which is why I’m praying that at some point me and Alex or Joe will have some kind of crazy threesome.  I mean, it’s got to happen, Season 27…” 

“Did you like me & Sam last year?”

Stephen does a surprising amount of fundraising for the charities, and personal convictions, he’s passionate about…

“One of the things I hadn’t really considered before the show became successful is one’s ability to help out causes that you’re interested in.  If we can get Alan to sign a script, if we can get some of the other cast to sign a script, we can auction it off and it can raise quite a lot of money.”

“Alex does it for various charities.  Alex and I were approached about this idea for Battle of the Fang – we raised $70,000 dollars.  People got completely absorbed in it and ultimately, it wasn’t about the victory – apart from the fact that I won – but it wasn’t about that.  We both raised a very similar amount, right up to the wire – I think I raised about $35,100 and he got $34,950.  We both chose causes that we cared about, and at the same time the gulf had exploded and the oil was washing to the shore in Louisiana.  Because it was Louisiana, I chose that as my charity because of the show, because we filmed down there.”

Maybe his dog Splash is worried about a possible global shortage of tennis balls, but Stephen’s concerns are a little more green…

“For me, it’s the huge stuff.  Something I drone on and on about which just bores people senseless is the plastic vortex in the Pacific.  The fact that we’ve just got oceans of sea life eating our discarded plastic really upsets me.”

“If I’m walking along behind somebody and they throw something {away}, I go back up to them and say ‘Oh, I’m sorry, I think you’ve dropped this.’  Unless they’re 75 feet tall, in which case I’ll just say f*ck it and put it in the bin for them.”

The interview’s accompanying photoshoot, shot by photographer Kurt Iswarienko, is a modern, metro throwback to 80’s rockband trends and has a goth punch to it.  It’s more unusual than anything we’ve seen previously from Stephen, and while it won’t make my list of “best photoshoots ever”, it just might rank among the most interesting.

Top 10 Sexiest Vamps & Weres of 2010

I know people normally do this at the end of the year, but *I* say it’s never too late to have a “sexiest” list!  Here are my top picks, in no particular order…

 

Alexander Skarsgård as Erik Northman & Stephen Moyer as Bill ComptonTrueBlood

 

Joe Manganiello as Alcide HerveauxTrueBlood

 

Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore & Paul Wesley as Stephan SalvatoreThe Vampire Diaries

 

Taylor Lautner as Jacob BlackEclipse

 

Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen, Eclipse

 

Ryan Robbins as Henry FossSanctuary

 

Sam Trammell as Sam Merlotte, TrueBlood

 

Jonathon Young as Nikola Tesla, Sanctuary

 

 

So apparently I have a thing for the TrueBlood crew.  HBO really knows how to cast ’em, eh?  *wink*  Isn’t that Rolling Stones cover TO DIE FOR?!!  <Yep, that pun was totally intended!> Seriously, it’s perfect for TrueBlood: sexy, bloody, & no-holds-barred (uh, literally)… love it!

To stay off the beaten path, I tried to steer from shirtless muscle shots in favor of professional-yet-smoldering headshots, but that Alcide one was just begging to be posted.  Muscles like that should not be hidden beneath a garment (unless it’s a tight t-shirt, then it’s ok *grin*).  Jacob Black, on the other hand, spends so much time with his shirt off in the movies that I thought I’d switch it up a bit and make him stay decent for once.  Not that we don’t all love the view…

And yes yes, I realize Nikola isn’t a vampire any longer.  This really makes me sad!  He’ll always be a vampire to me, even if he had to settle for the magnetic thing in 2010.

Yeah I know there aren’t any ladies on the list.  I tried to find at least one, but alas, the men were all just more appealing this year.  But hey, it’s *my* list!  Feel free to make your own list and comment it here!  *grin*  Enjoy the eye candy!
