Fangtastic news!

I would be remiss if I didn't mention the Season 3 premiere of True Blood this Sunday at 9 pm on HBO. My loins are quivering in anticipation. To prepare, I've started watching Season 2 again. This was a good idea. There are a lot of details I'd forgotten about so everything will be fresh in my mind for the debut of the new season.

I love this show. Frankly, anything that Alan Ball is involved with always kicks ass (American Beauty, Six Feet Under, etc...). And this particular show feeds my vampire fetish. I can't explain it. I've always had it, and have always been drawn to shows that explore it: Dark Shadows, with Ben Cross (God, I was so hot for him); Buffy the Vampire Slayer (first, major crush on Angel, then loin quivers for Spike); Bram Stoker's Dracula (I wanted Gary Oldman to sneak into my bedroom too); Fright Night (Chris Sarandon as a vampire = HAWT) and now, True Blood (Vampire Bill gave me chills - the good kind - now Eric is lookin' mighty fine).

I imagine it's pretty commonplace these days to have a vampire fetish what with all the Twilight insanity but I was ahead of the curve, way before this mass blood sucker hysteria.

I would be a vampire's ideal victim. Why? Because I'm so easily seduced. I would gladly expose my neck and give up my first born if some hot vampire dude stared at me long enough. Except Edward Cullen. I don't know if the production budget fell short for Twilight but the makeup in the first movie was so heinously bad, even I couldn't buy the fake pale skin. Also, Robert Pattinson's portrayal of the brooding angst that characterizes most vampires just made me want to slap him, unlike other performers delving into the vampire genre who make me think lewd and lascivious thoughts.

Perhaps it's the promise of immortality (despite having to become an evil, murderous being), or really hot, somewhat violent sex (what with the biting and drinking of blood) that draws me to this mythical creature. 

 I wanna see more of you in Season 3. Yum.

But I know this much is true:
I wanna do bad things with you."

You and my wife share warm fuzzy feelings for that blond vampire dude. My jury is still out on that particular show (after Buffy, all other vampire shows pale in comparison, I have to admit) -- but True Blood does have an awesome theme song.

I don't know nuthin' about TV, and don't have strong feelings about vampires; but I love me some quivering loins. It's probably my second favorite Hunan dish after shaking beef.
