True Blood

True Blood staring Anna Paquin (Rouge-Xman)
The series follows Sookie Stackhouse, a barmaid living in Louisiana who can read people's minds, and how her life is turned upside down when the Vampire Bill, walks into her place of employment two years after vampires 'came out of the coffin' on national television, due to the new drink "Some vampires are going mainstream and are existing on a form of synthetic blood."

American television drama series created by Alan Ball, based on the Sookie Stackhouse book series by Charlaine Harris. It premiered on September 7, 2008. True Blood details the co-existence of vampires and humans in Bon Temps, a fictional small Louisiana town.

The main theme song is "Bad Things" by country music artist Jace Everett, from his 2005 self-titled debut


Sookie * Anna (telepathic powers) her brother Jason ( ladies man) both lost their parents at a young age. Sookie falls in love will Bill who's a sensitive vamp not like the others. Sam, Sookies boss at the bar is a shapshifter, mostly uses a dog.

Vamps use jeti mind "glamour" that does not work on Sookie, they have created myths about themselves ( like no reflection in a mirror) Vamp blood is being used as a street drug.
Vampire Blood as a human drug. 600$ oz. Street name 'V' Dosage- 1-2 drops - the drug is harvested from the vamps, highly dangerous to acquire.

Short-term effects: Heightened libido, awareness and senses; delirium
Long-term effects: Heightened aggression; increased chance of addiction (which results in severe withdrawal symptoms and cravings)

'V' Makes the mortals feel healthier, more attentive and in tune to nature. Sex is "out of this world", as it 'V' has hallucinogenic properties. Users leave their physical bodies and venture into an other dimension. ( reminds me of Amanita )

Jason & Amy go over the rainbow on V - last drop @ apx 3 mins
Fellowship of the Sun, is to preserve the strength and purity of the human race by preventing vampires from gaining a foothold in our businesses, government and communities.

Off the silver screen and onto planet Earth:
'Vampire' discovered in mass grave
To stop the "vampires" supposedly chewing shrouds and spreading disease, grave-diggers put bricks in the mouths of plague victims

A SKELETON exhumed from a grave in Venice is being claimed as the first known example of the "vampires" widely referred to in contemporary documents.

Matteo Borrini of the University of Florence in Italy found the skeleton of a woman with a small brick in her mouth (see right) while excavating mass graves of plague victims from the Middle Ages on Lazzaretto Nuovo Island in Venice

Review on True Blood linking Palin & Rogue

Some vampires are going mainstream and are existing on a form of synthetic blood. Others are taking a page from Sarah Palin's book and "going rogue." Others are taking a page from Sarah Palin's book and "going rogue."


Jennifers Body and True Blood Movie posters are mirrored images

Jennifer is a mean-girl cheerleader possessed by a demon who begins feeding off the boys in a Minnesota farming town. . It is then up to her "plain Jane" best friend Needy (Amanda Seyfried) to kill Jennifer, escape from a correctional facility and go after lead singer Nikolai (Adam Brody) and his Satan-worshiping rock band responsible for the transformation.
It was officially cast in October 2007, Jennifer's Body is the follow-up to writer and producer Diablo Cody and Jason Reitman collaboration efforts on Juno. wiki

The highly erotic Jennifers Body has set its release date. The film will hit theatres of September 18th 2009. Unlike TWILIGHT this vampire flick is much more adult in nature. http://www.moviesonline.ca/movienews_16151.html
The Jennifers Body poster & True blood remind me of this


AJP was mention in True Blood gag mag on the coffee table.
Headline was that she adopts vampire baby!


Rocky Horror Picture Show famous lip:

Dr. Frank-N-Furter is actually an alien (a transvestite from the planet Transsexual in the galaxy Transylvania) who's succeeded in creating the Sonic Transducer, "an audio-vibratory physiomolecular transport device" capable of "breaking down solid matter and then projecting it through space and, who knows, perhaps even time itself." http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0073629/plotsummary
MTV is doing the time warp on a remake of 1975 cult classic "The Rocky Horror Picture Show."

While out googleing for photos, i notice I'm not the first to make these connections:
All Foxy Vampire Roads Lead Back To Countess Angelina's Castle But it was only upon seeing the virtually identical key art for sunlight-resistant Diablo Cody's Jennifer's Body that the true inspiration for both campaigns hit us: A portrait of Angelina Jolie from Entertainment Weekly in which the actress plays up her succubus image, savoring what we like to imagine were the last drops of Billy Bob Thornton's hemogravy after a particularly rough session of Hide the Stake -Gawker

Two derivations of something that was already derivative...welcome to Hollywood. We recycle.
Dexter & True Blood are lining up - Sylvia Prado played by Valerie Cruz in the Dexter series will be staring in season 2 of True Boold. Cruz will join the cast in a recurring role as Isabel the "elegant Hispanic vampire."

Below: 2009 promo for True Blood



An other synch is "Six Feet Under"(centers on Fisher & Sons) Alan Ball is the creator of "True Blood". Dexter - Michael Hall first stared as David Fisher in 6 feet under. 'He yearns for a marriage and children, but his dreams are shattered when he realizes he is gay. " which also synchs to RockyHorror.




Update: While in the movie store over the weekend i came across this : Filth and Wisdom Directed by Madonna. A comedy/drama/musical/romance centered on three flatmates living desperate lives in London. Dreams of rock glory by moonlighting as a cross-dressing dominatrix and his two female flatmates. The film premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival on February 13, 2008

continue ... Vulva stone & lipsynchs

Update : Desperately Seeking Susan (1985)

Loving your Mouth syncs for a number of reasons. One is that I'm about to be writing a post for the first time about the Mouth and it's in relation to the Bram Stokers Dracula movie!!! Again we seem to be resonating with the same themes.
Also like the inclusion of Dexter in your recent explorations. Loved the show and I hope to look closer at the Blood resonator soon. Keep up the good work!

Word Veri: killyted (a sign to kill a teddy bear!?!) :D
