“True Blood” is about to get even sexier next season. I know, how is that possible? “There’s a lot of nudity,” Alexander Skarsgard (aka Vampire Eric) told RadarOnline.com. “As far as Eric goes, there’s going to be a lot violence and a lot of sex — with women and men! So it should be interesting.” Um, we’re going to get some guy-on-guy action? For those of us who like a little gay porn — not to mention the delectable blood-sucking sexiness of Skarsgard — this sounds tasty. [RadarOnline.com] Keep reading »
Further proof some men don’t know jack about women: Esquire magazine says chicks go bananas for vampire love stories because we lust after … wait for it … gay guys. Gay guys don’t want to be with us the way vampires can’t be with us and you know us ladies: we just want what we cannot have.
No, I’m not buying it either. Keep reading »
Didn’t you just love to hate Maryann Forrester in season two of “True Blood“? Author Charlaine Harris has one helluva imagination, but it was creator/executive producer Alan Ball who brought Maryann to life. Even though she was a rather annoying villain (surprisingly, though, she was less annoying than Sookie Stackhouse), none of this season would have been possible without Maryann’s maenad craziness. So why not celebrate “He who comes” by dressing like his bride for Halloween? Just remember to periodically raise your arms and quiver? How to get the look, after the jump!

I’ve been obsessively watching “How I Met Your Mother” after discovering it late (super late) in the third season. Actually, I let it slip that I wasn’t watching it and then got harangued by everyone I knew for not knowing what it meant to be the married “Lily” of the group. Since then, I’ve been loving Neil Patrick Harris‘ bad Barney. His Lothario-dude, who would be a creepy, sadistic psychopath in real life, is adorable on TV as he wham-bam-thank-you-ma’ams his way through the ladies of New York. Except, this season he is adorable in a brand-new way. He’s found love with Robin, an uncomfortable, wince-inducing, awesome, making-out and having-googly-eyed-Sunday-brunch kind of love. And I love that he’s in love. Which got me thinking about all the other fictional characters that I’ve wanted to watch fall in love. Or at least get kissed. Keep reading »
Attention “True Blood” fanatics! While it ain’t exactly synthetic vampire blood, it does look a lot like the real stuff—and will supposedly give you a bit of a boost in an energy-juice sort of way. Introducing Blood Energy Potion by a company called Urban Collection: It looks like blood, has similar viscosity, shares the same nutritional composition and comes in a resealable plastic bag … just like blood! Perhaps the perfect Halloween accessory? Then again, could you actually imagine sipping this or would it totally gross you out? [InventorSpot] Keep reading »
What would happen if HBO did a spin-off of “True Blood,” only it was a half-hour sitcom called “At Merlottes”? One thing is for certain: It would be funnier than “Two And A Half Men.” [Buzzfeed

Here a vampire, there a vampire. “Twilight.” “True Blood.” “The Vampire Diaries.” These days, you can’t leave the house without running into another bloodsucker. Now, Playboy magazine has jumped on the bloodthirsty bandwagon with their new October issue. The cover is a pulp fiction tribute to hot girl-on-girl throat-bleeder action, starring Playmates Kasia Danysz and Weronika Zurkowska. Inside, the magazine explores the finer nuances of 21st century vampire life, including “why the undead are hot again.” You’ve come a long way, Dracula. [io9] Keep reading »
When I try to explain my ardor for HBO’s trashy-fabulous soap opera “True Blood” to my dude friends, they either shrug and change the topic, or question whether I’ve been writing for ladyblogs for too long and am suffering from a form of Stockholm Syndrome. Dudes just don’t dig bloodsuckers, since vampires pretty much look like girls. We prefer zombies, because we love chainsaws, flamethrowers, and samurai swords. And because, on some level, we know that besides being vehicles for sperm, our other important, if lesser, genetic imperative is to defend our loved ones from hordes of unthinking, flesh-eating metaphors for current social anxieties.

“She’s not necessarily a lesbian. [...] Her human partner is a girl, but I’m pretty sure she goes both ways [laughs]. I think vampires are like that in general.”
