The Hunger for True Blood

"The Hunger" stands out as a vampire film for a few reasons: they have no fangs, Miriam (Deneuve) is the original vamp, and it has David Bowie, Catherine Deneuve and Susan Sarandon as leads, the first scene has Bauhaus singing "Bela Lugosi's Dead", perfection.  
Miriam is an Egyptian vamp, her current lover/progeny is John (Bowie) but it seems like she has a few skeletons in her closet, or in this case her attic. It seems after a few hundred years her children start withering away but not dying, so she just boxes them up and puts them away from her sight. Now it's John's turn and Susan Sarandon's Sarah has become Miriam's new fixation. The movie was written by Whitley Strieber whose tales of UFO abductions and alien encounters (Communion,Transformation) have been a favorite of mine. Now let's move onward with our Hiatus Support Group's meanderings. 

An old Phineas and Ferb, that is Anna and Stephen doing the voices.

From the urban dictionary- Boot N Rally-The laudable act of binge drinking to the point of vomiting, then coming to and regrouping to drink more and further partake in the festivities of the night. Such a feat is only ever performed by seasoned experts and should not be attempted if one is not endowed with a strong will and/or is not prepared to dread waking up the next morning.

"True Blood" Star Ryan Kwanten joined the rest of Oakley's Star Family at Oakley Learn to Ride at Sundance Film Festival 2012.
From the Belfast Telegraph, it's actually part of the SciFiNow article-

Anna Paquin is careful of the "outlandish" things she says around the True Blood writers as they sometimes end up in the show.The actress is famed for her role as Sookie Stackhouse in the HBO series. True Blood follows the co-existence of vampires and humans in a fictional town in Louisiana. Because of the fantasy content, Anna has to bite her tongue with discussing far-fetched ideas around the production team, as they sometimes end up working them into the script. "Sometimes I pitch things that are a joke. There was a scene in episode nine [of season four] with me Steve [Moyer] and Alex [SkarsgĂ„rd] that I pitched, which I can't you about, but was sort of a joke, but not really," she explained in an interview with SciFi Now.
"Sometimes I wonder if I say things that are really outlandish and because of the nature of our show, they actually end up in the show." Anna's character Sookie has a complicated relationship with vampire Bill. The star likes to get her teeth stuck into the intricate romantic storylines. "I'm totally happy for our characters to be as sad, distraught, messed up and hating each other as they like," she said.
"We don't really have everything be perfect or happy for too long. It's not interesting television if everything works out for Bill and Sookie, and then they adopt five babies and live happily ever after."
Undead, undead, undead.

Happy Birthday to new dad Sam Trammell.

FYI Andrew McCarthy former Brat Packer/John Hughes favorite, is directing.
Wetpaint has some speculations about the Scott Foley character's motives, what do y'all think? I think maybe Terry saw them shift and maul civilians and he has been damaged ever since. You can post your thoughts there or here in comments.
This was my first TB community,  as well as  they are still rocking and deserve a view.
Buried -Season 5 Promo!

from Eonline's Kristin
While the new True Blood promo gave us no new (or shirtless) footage, it did offer us this awesome tease: "In Bon Temps, nothing stays buried forever." Yeah, we're guessing this has to do with the death of Debbie Pelt (Brit Morgan), which is definitely going to cause problems for Sookie (Anna Paquin). 
OK, in Anne Rice's novels Older Vamps will go to ground for years, sometimes hundreds till something sparks them awake and then they'll return to the world, why does this have to be about Debbie? We didnt even see how she is disposed of last season. I hope this isnt about her, really.
TVLine's Ausiello's column is more to my thinking, or hoping-True Blood is heralding the return of the king.The first teaser for the HBO drama’s upcoming fifth season warns, “In Bon Temps, Nothing Stays Buried Forever,” a reference to the exhumation of Russell Edgington in the Season 4 finale.
THR also weighs in with their thoughts on the preview at the link.
The background music from the teaser is from metal band Lamb of God, as per Skullsnbones site-
How about this! The mighty Lamb Of God not only just released the amazing "Resolution" album, but they are also taking over television! The fifth season of "True Blood" is about to begin on HBO and guess who is on a teaser for the upcoming season! Yes, LAMB OF GOD! Watch the "Buried"teaser below and in the background you will hear the song"King Me", which is the last, and my personal favorite, track on "Resolution." This is amazing! I've never seen this show, or watched HBO (I'm poor), but I think this is just awesome for the band. From Randy's tweets last night, he is just as excited: "YEAH YEAH YEAH!!!!!!!!! GET SOME!!!!!! TOP RATED SHOW ON HBO & they used OUR MUSIC as a promo!!!!!!!
