A Team Seth Celebrity Twitter Interview…

It has been a long time…WC Stacey and I realize this and are hanging our heads in shame! Yet, we bring good news…at least I do! I’m reading and I am going to review the new Sookie Stackhouse book for you! I am almost almost caught up on Vampire Diaries, so we can have an end of season recap powwow. Also…True Blood is next month! Yay!

This guy does Twitter interviews with Team Seth, which means he’s awesome!

What is even better than that you might be asking? Team Seth has graciously interviewed a new Vampire from Breaking Dawn 2 for us. Or like a lovingly call it Breaking Dawn 2: Hey who the heck is that guy? And that guy? Wait was she in the book?

(Note: I drafted this last night and when I checked Letters To Twilight (www.letterstotwilight.com)  this morning, they had something on Guri, too!!! It’s a Guri Weinberg Super Friday! Who would ever thought that would ever happen. I didn’t.)

Now here’s Team Seth… 

Another day, another twitter interview with a supe character! After months and months of mistimings and me forgetting entirely about this interview, I finally nailed down Guri Weinberg for a 10 Impertinent Questions twitter interview. Guri, if you didn’t know, plays Stefan in Breaking Dawn pt2. Stefan is one of the Romanian vamps who got thwarted by the Volturi out of ruling office some centuries/millennium ago (I don’t remember exact dates). They’re super old and super pissy and have a great dry humor in the books. We’ll see what happens in the film. I always felt Guri was WAY TOO YOUNG for the role, but it turns out he’s the same age as my husband (born 1972). He looks way younger than he is. (I just realized I was just about to get married last time we did a 10 Impertinent Questions post! How exciting. That all went well.)

If you don’t follow Guri on twitter, you probably should. He’s basically never on, but when he is, the world stops spinning just so that you can spend his one allotted hour of tweet time chatting him until he gets pulled away by “life” (aka Tammy, his wife) or is shoved into “twitter jail” for tweeting too frequently. He’s a helluva fast tweeter! It’s the best hour of your day, I promise. You’ll leave feeling giddy and wanting to drink and giggle.

Hey Team Edward, Rob doesn’t do twitter interviews (or knows how to use the twitter), but Guri does! Team Stefan! (But not Team Stefan Salvatore)

Guri also runs a blog that he basically never updates, but is amazingly well-written, poignant, and hilarious. He runs a charity, GFYS4Charity, which you can read about the whole GFYS thing in his blog (http://guriweinberg.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=108:gfys&catid=46:blog ) and it’ll link to all the charity sites there. I mention this because, well, charities should be mentioned, but also because it’s part of the interview. So, without further ado, I give you two photos of Guri and our 10 Impertinent Questions interview.  Enjoy!

Happy times...before Edward uses teeth

I Finally Saw Breaking Dawn…With Very Pregnant Ladies

*Spoilers. Of course, you are reading something about Breaking Dawn which means you’ve read it before and know what happens already without seeing the movie. HOWEVER, that book is enormous and I fell asleep twice while reading it. You might have forgotten the C-Section. Who am I kidding, that was the best part. 

First an apology from me (and most likely WC), I am sorry that we haven’t been as chatty lately. Let’s just say that consuming large amounts of turkey and decorating for Christmas it’s been busy at my house. Trust me when I say that to untangle Christmas lights to twist around tasteful garland for the staircase took me a hour. It was only one strand. My inner Martha Stewart is on overdrive and it’s only going to get worse when the Christmas cookies start being baked. So much worse, I promise you.  

To get myself back into blogging and ultimately annoying you with my thoughts on entertainment, I want to give you a little taste of when I saw Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part One. I want to wait to give my complete thoughts on the flick with WC, but I thought you might be interested in a very interesting observation I made when seeing the film with some dear friends. Two of which who were VERY pregnant.  This is what happened…

Umm...really Bella? There's a baby in that tiny stomach? I might hate you.

After a lovely dinner at an Irish Pub, three friends of mine went along with me to see the movie. Two of which, J and L who are pregnant and K (like me) not at all. (See how I just have letters for their names? It’s a We Read or Watch Twilight Protection Device. You want to admit it, but you are slightly ashamed to say it to others. Like my sister did, when she refused to ask the artsy theater if they were playing it, because while it said they were online it wasn’t on the marquee. Keeping the street cred! So thanks Feat Lil J for outting her on that one. Glad you girls had fun at the wine bar instead.)   Now if you read the book, like J, K and myself you know the birth is umm…graphic. Sadly, L had no clue. Like zero. You see L never had an interest in reading the books or seeing the movies, but she did want to escape from the kids for a night before the newest bundle of joy arrived. Maybe, I should have warned her. Oh never mind, what would have been the fun in that!

Are seating arrangements were interesting. J must have won the coin toss, because she didn’t have to sit next to me.Poor J and K had experienced my crazy at Robert Pattinson movies before at Eclipse and Water for Elephants. Many comments would distract them from their viewing enjoyment like, “Looking good. Pretty Pattinson.” “Mmmph.” “Why is he doing that thing with his mouth? Does he have a piece of food in his teeth and needs to get it out? That’s not attractive!” Or the ever popular,”What the h*ll! They made him look like a freakin’ corpse.”  I am not fun to sit next to. At least L thinks I’m funny or at least when she wasn’t texting her hubby a play by play of the movie. Which I, in turn, found funny.

Look it's Emm...no it's not. Ugh! Not enough Emmett and his inappropriate pregnancy comments in this flick!

That was until the big old birthing that demon baby. At this point, J knowing the story, was taking Bella in stride. Even though pregnant she was prepared for these developments. K just made some grimicing faces, she knew the deal even though seeing it was different from reading it. But dear L grabbed my arm. This was when her eyes got really big and she asked, “They are really showing this?” I laughed, because after sippy cup o’blood she shouldn’t have been surprised. Then Edward happened. 

L: Were those his teeth?”
EC: Teeth Cesarean!! (Me erupting into inappropriate giggles.)

Then this exchange.

EC: Is the baby kicking?
L: Yes! She’s moving around a lot!
EC: Your baby loves the demon baby! Just wait until Jacob imprints on it! (giggling)
L: What?!?

Somebody needs her 'Sippy Cup'

You might be wondering, has Breaking Dawn completely turned L off from the previous books and movies? No way, she’s going to borrow mine and start reading them! Good job, Director of Dream Girls you just converted the newest Ashamed TwiMom. (You should probably feel a little bad about that, Bill.)  

At least he was nice at some point during her pregnancy. Well until you know...teeth.

By the way…as a transplanted Maryland girl, why the heck is Pattinson running around wearing a Baltimore Orioles hat? Does he know that’s what that giant ‘O’ means? Does he know that the don’t win very much? Is he a Cal Ripkin fan? Ugh, this is going to bother me for at least a day.  

Does he even know what the 'O' means?

 

Whoa! He has ANOTHER one?!? There has to be a wildly inaccurate and goofy Celebrity Email Theater written about this!

WHY YOU SHOULD NEVER HAVE AN OPEN BAR AT WEDDINGS

EC: One day, Letter to Twilight (www.letterstotwilight.com), which by the way if you like this blog you’ll LOVE theirs,  had a post discussing just pictures released from Breaking Dawn. Wedding pictures with Bella’s mom, Renee. You know the lady. The one who likes to pretend that she’s her daughter’s younger sister. Well that got us to thinking, what would happen if you combined Renee, an open bar and all of her cougar instincts around men who look like Grecian, marble statues? Trouble. Big trouble.

SWD: *side note* We did have an open bar at our wedding. It was Mr. Snow’s “designer silk dress”. We paid for it. It was soooo worth the 11.5 (<-we know lots of drunks) for all the candid table camera photos, stories, hook-ups, and pregnancies. And we DID have a cougar/ groomsmen sitch. #awesome

Disclaimer: Stephenie Meyers created these crazy characters. We just took it to the next, disturbing (and hopefully funny) level.

Disclaimer 2: You know this isn’t real. Because, I honestly believe if you think Edward Cullen or Jacob Black are real then you might need to talk someone. A professional someone. A professional someone that can administer prescription medication. Also, you do realize vampires and werewolves aren’t at all real? Neither are zombies. That goodness for that. Those things are nasty.

Disclaimer 3: Don’t you think STAR magazine and US Weekly should put disclaimers like these on all their stories? Because, you do know the probabilities that anything written in those are real are like slim to none.

P.S. – This is dedicated to Team Seth, who actually had a beautiful wedding and no crazy Renee’s and Emmett’s

Away we go…

Bella-
First let me say, Mama loves you. I know you are abit mad right now, but I think in a few weeks you and I can sit back and laugh. Your dad told me to leave you alone, but I told him he can kiss it. Charlie’s face turned all red and it looked like smoke was going to come out of his ears. It was hilarious. Which isn’t the reason I’m writing, just…
You know, if you think about it, it really is your fault Bella. An open bar? You know how Mama loves her wine. Not to mention, what is it with those Cullen men? Their backsides are like rocks! I just had to see if they really were so hard. You can’t blame a woman for needing to see…I should say feel. That cutie Emmett seemed to enjoy it. Then when I danced with that big piece of meat, well sweetie, I think you married the wrong brother.
 
Which reminds me, when you get back I need to have a conference call or SKYPE with you and little Alice. I wasn’t liking how Jasper was looking at Edward. He kept making weird faces. Then when I took a little feel, that boy’s face got all tight and frustrated looking. Remember when I dated that Greg when you were 8? He was a bisexual, Bella. I know these things from experience. I will bet my whole collection of Mexican decorative pottery that Alice’s boyfriend is light in the loafers. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
I know you were actually worried about Phil’s feelings! Don’t worry, sweetie! He was having a great time chatting up and I think feeling up that tall, blonde girl from Alaska. Are her boobs real? Anyway, we have an ‘open relationship’. Maybe you and Edward should look into that type of arrangement!
 
Is Bronte like the Kardashians? I just love that show!

True Blood Epi 6 : “I wish I Was the Moon”

Posted in Recaps, True Blood with tags , , , , , , , , , , on August 4, 2011 by talksupe
posted by snowwhitedrifted

…Or  “True Blood, you’re doing it wrong!”

^I’ll get to that at the end, but you book readers get where I’m going with this.

EC: What the heck happened in episode 5? Oh right! Jason’s weird/hilarious dream about Jessica becoming Hoyt. Oh and Eric getting frisky with Sookie! Those were the important things, right?

*sings* I got the Sheriff, but I didn't get no hot Sookie

King Bill: So Eric and Sookie are having an ab-off on the sofa when Bill vamp speeds in and hypothetically throws a bucket of cold water on the action.  Eric attacks him and we almost have a shish kabill. Luckily Sookie screached loudly enough that Bill was Eric’s king and Eric goes down on one knee to honor his liege. (EC: That girl has a powerful set of lungs! I think I lost my hearing after her wailing cat impression.) Then we end up back at Bills, where we have “Locked Up Abroad: Vamp edition.” It’s a little party in Bill’s Basement of Broken Wills. Pam is falling apart, literally, but her Pamisims are on fire, calling Bill a “pompus little dork”, coining “dork” as the newest offending 4 letter word.Nan pops up on Bill’s screen and is impressed and surprised he has coraled Eric. *raises eyebrow* Why is she surprised? Bill gets her permission to impose the true death on Eric. Yes, I was shocked, shocked I tell you that Bill wants Eric dead. Awe what happened to the bromance? Well Nan signs off and we see that Bill’s computer wallpaper is, in fact, wallpaper!

EC: Pam’s face is making me literally ill. I have a hard time looking at the screen when she’s on. Have I mentioned lately that I hate zombie movies? That’s the reason why. Also…did you notice something odd about Nan in her teleconference with Bill? She seemed to be…ahh…enjoying something while talking to him. Why is it that I think Alan Ball cut something out in this scene? (Watch the scene again on your DVR’s. You will definitely notice something odd there.) 

King Bill is annoying the heck out of me. I miss gentleman Bill who didn’t wear suits and wasn’t putting people (or attractive Vikings) to death. Come back to us, Bill, come back!

SWD: *Confession time for SWD* I like Bill way more as BadBill and I *hangs head in shame* like Eric less as EmoNorthman. And you KNOW how big of an Eric fan I am.  See, I have a baddy addy.

I'm making SWD change Vamp Teams

Witch Marnie: So, Marnie’s a cutter. After some bleeding and pleading,  she gets possessed by Antonia, “bob” from Twin Peaks style. Will her hair turn gray? Will she kill Laura Palmer? (EC: I miss Twin Peaks! Now I want cherry pie and teh guy who played Agent Cooper to be in a good show again.)  Anyhow, Marnie becomes the “Vampire Whisperer,”  making Fr. turned Sheriff Luis submit into downard dog with her devil horn hand gesture. I’m so trying this on my dog later.

EC: Are the witches really the bad guys? The one possessing Marnie seems to be pretty justified in wanting to get revenge. Those scenes were upsetting. Okay, maybe destroying every vampire might be taking it to far, but after going through what she did I can under stand wanting to bring some pain. 

Jesus and Lafayette in Mexico:Lafayette objects for “Goat Tongue for breakfast”. Please, man up Laffy, goat tongue is not for afternoon tappas! I find Jesus’ grandpa… wait for it… sexy as hell. I want him to play Murtagh (yes, more #Outlander), Latino style. He has the boys out in the yard finding a wiling animal to sacrifice. Of course, since this is True Blood, it’s not a gopher, but a rattlesnack. Jesus goes all Steve Irwin and grabs the snake. Hawt G-pa tells Laffy to protect Jesus and then sics the rattler on Jesus neck. Then Laffy, like witch Marnie, gets possesed by Tito Ortiz, oh wait I mean Tio Luca, and we’re all sure Luca is going to be loco, right? Good. Maybe Tio will cut off Laffy’s braids. Where’d the cute mohawk go, Laffy?

You dissin' my braids, hookah?

EC: You joking about Jesus’s grandpa, right?

SWD: I’m not, lol… see above “baddy addy”.

EC: That dude freaks me out. You kow what also freaked me out…that rattlesnake. Poor Layfette. He is going to be doing some weird stuff now. Can’t a guy just hang out with his honey for an episode and just chill?

Demon ghost baby: Something starts a fire in the Bellefleur “boudoir” but Mikey’s guardian ghost (whom I swear was Jared Leto’s “Love” interest in “How to Make an American Quilt”) puts him outside. That whole house burns and all the Bellfleur fam are left with is the dirty creepy doll. And Terry’s armadillo? Where did that come from? Mr. Molina’s biology class? But I did kind of dig Arlene’s Etsy style morning after sweater.

EC: Vampires, werewolfs and ghosts…Oh my! We now have almost everything supernatural represented now in True Blood! I might be losing track of storylines. Are any of these going to tie in at all? Is the ghost a witch, too? That baby is adorable. I don’t like him being around creepy things. Unlike, Breaking Dawn, there can be a vampire show with a cute baby. Just not ones with ridiculous names and questionable births.

Law Enforcement: V’ed up Andy shows  can lift Lazy Boy armchairs and swing dates with witches. Go Andy, Holly was imnpressed with the Gun Show! But you ARE barking up the wrong tree with Sam. He will go raging bull, literally, on your arse if you’re not careful.

EC: I might have a started reading my Martha Stewart magazine and zoned out on this part. Yummy summer recipes…

The Merlotte Boys: Distraugh Tommy shifts into Sam, opens the bar, fires Sookie and steals Sam’s… not money this time, but his “horse tail”. I think Tommy just wanted to know what it felt like to be in a true Sam shirt.  Tommy is sickened by this human shift, or maybe it was going horsey style, and Sam finds him passed out when he returns home.

EC: I stopped reading Martha Stewart after Andy’s scenes were over. The only reason I even watched Tommy’s scenes was that he looked like Sam. What a little jerk. Can he morph into a fly and someone hit him with a fly swatter? Problem solved!

Tara: Gets found by her girlfriend who likes Bon Temps Tara. Glad someone does cuz I’ve had an earful of Tara-self pity. Why is she still in BT anyway? She’s pissed at Sookie, Laffy and Jesus are frolicking on an advenure, she’s dissing on Merlottes, she’s on the vampire’s naughty list. GTFO of “Dodge” Tara.

EC: I think Tara is drawn to the absolute worse place for her. Or she’s still secretly in love with Sam. (fingers crossed!) Of everything that happened to her, it seems to be a case of her being in the wrong place at the wrong time. If I was Tara, I would hate Eric too. He tried to kill her in the second episode. Also, all the vampire hate is completely justified after that Franklin mess. I think, listen up Alan Ball, that the kick ass Tara needs to show up and throw it down. Make her a vampire slayer. Something to give the girl some power. (I really miss Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Joss Whedon could give lessons on creating strong female leads!)

Jess and Jason have a Meadow Scene!:  It’s the new TB couple: Jassica! Firstly, so much classic Jason lines in this episode, like  his voicemail message saying, “If I’m not here, call 911 and ask for me.” and “…like I’m extar good at sex… and shooting.” So Sookie stiffles a giggle when Jason says he’s a werepanther, like we all did when we read “werepanther” in the books. He wants Sookie to shoot him if he changes, she wants to help him, and not just “change his kittty litter.” Good one. He takes off and has a panic attack. Which, Jessica senses and rushes to his aid, as apparanty her boobs are Xanax. So they bond and lie down in the meadow. Ah the wilderness, *coughs* Eric and Sookie*. Jason is kind of sad he’s not a werepanther and Jessica assures him that he is “special”. Oh yes Jason, you are definitely “special” *see above “Jason-isms.”

EC: What the heck happened to the plot of Jason being a werepanther? That was a HUGE plot point of the books. I understand veering slightly from the written text, but there is major things that if you are using the basic outlines of the book series that need to be in the show. You already killed off Claudine and now this! The Sookie and Jason scene was cute though. Also, Jason and Jessica are like little children together. I like them together! She’s a very young girl, so it’s understandable that she would want to explore other relationships. I have a feeling Hoyt will not be pleased. 

Eric Sookie Meadow Scene: The part I we have all been waiting for. The “Leg Hitch” of True Blood. The Eric- Sookie shower scene….! ^ Yes, this is what I meant in the above rant . Apparantly,  we had the epic shower scene last season w/ Sookie and Bill so no loofah time for the sheriff I guess. They er, uh, went au natural. Plus 1 for ball here as he did keep the camera on Eric the whole time. Please note, Bill Condon, you better have shot Breaking Dawn with the same camera techniques in mind. Anyway, back to the woods of Bon Temps. Now, don’t they remember the woods during a full moon (no, we don’t mean Eric’s) are SUPEr crowded with shifters? Who will see them? Who will be interrupting the romp. I’m guessing it will be Alcide and Debbie. maybe they’ll join in. Well, without Debbie of course. Wait, was that out loud?

EC: Hot, Sookie/Eric action. I also agree, Alcide. But he should be in every scene. Also, could you imagine a Edward and Bella forest/meadow scene like this one? Nope, me either. This would happen… 

Edward: Your locks glimmer like sunlight fallling on fall leaves.

Bella: Let’s make out.

Edward: No my love! I cannot control my urges!  Let me wax poetic about the depths of the pools of you chocolate eyes.

Bella: Please, Edward! Can I get at least a little tongue?

Edward: You are such a child! *stomps off* 

In conclusion, why did Bill let Eric go? Why was he emoting on his porch? My DVR cut off here and switched to live mode, so I  missed some minutes. It flashed from Bill’s frown to Eric’s splendor in the grass. Did I miss a plot point?

True Blood Recap: Gettin’ An Eyeful, True Blood Style

Posted in True Blood with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on July 22, 2011 by talksupe
posted by EC Stacey

Today’s installment of the True Blood recap is brought to you by…

SAM'S SHIRTS. Short or long sleeved you can't go wrong with a Sam's Shirt. Don't shift without one!

EC:  There was a lot of development in this past Sunday’s episode, so let’s get to MY favorite part…drunken, simple-minded Eric. Sure, he can’t remember anything, but not only did Eric inherit Jason’s ridiculous looking sleeveless hoodie, he also now has gained Jason’s cluelessness. Yes, I miss bad boy Eric. (As does Team Seth) However, this is a fun bit of distraction to see Alexander play a goof ball. It’s not only refreshing, but makes me giggle. Particularly, the drunken gooseing of Miss Stackhouse. Who knew that fairy blood equals the same buzz of a six pack of Bud Light. (Cause they are down south, y’all.) It also inspires this:

SWD: My fav line,” Croccccccccoooooooddddiiiiiiiloooooos” said in menacing crazy Viking voice. This is soo book Eric, even down to the wearing of Jason’s old sweatshirts. Or wait, did Sookie pick up Eric some clothes from Walmart? Either way, Viking sheriff in Gildan is funny. I’m thinking the black tanks of previous seasons were American Apparel. They go uber low with the U necks. Just ask VD’s Stefan.

It's like talking to a very tall toddler

EC:  Also, the added Alcide bonus…  

Fun at the creek during the summer, Bon Temps style

EC:  I mean come on now, Ball is an evil mastermind! This scene is the reason that the female demographic for these types of shows and movies are so high. It certainly isn’t the gore factor. No, it’s the shirtless men…umm…I mean romance! That’s it…romance! The scene with Sookie, Alcide and Eric was pretty funny. Which is good, because the rest of it was an angst fest. Starting with Debbie getting ready to jump back on the crazy train. At least we had an almost Sookie/Eric kiss!

SWD: Sookie looked so cute in that scene too! I want her green mini jacket.  Friend of a friend has 4 large, menacing dogs (rott, shepherd, etc.) and a chihuahua. The chihuahua OWNS them. It reminds me of Sookie and her pack of alphas.

EC: Pam gets a face lift. Or is it face melt? It looked painful. Now we know that hippie Marnie is possessed by a very pissed off ancient witch. Being burned at the stake will do that to a girl. #lessonslearnedfromSalem. Massachusetts that is. Not #lessonslearnedfromDaysofourLivesSalem. However, both Days of Our Lives and True Blood had characters that were possessed. Plus, True Blood is pretty much a gory soap opera. Now they should just have Sami Brady do a crossover.

SWD: That freaked me out! Poltergeist flashbacks!

Pam, if you were interested in getting some work done, I would have suggested a certified plastic surgeon.

EC:  Oh Bill…Bill…Bill…you went from your dream girl, Sookie to your great, great, great granddaughter. Dude, that’s messed up. Must be good to be king. Not! Karma is going to be biting you on the bottom. Look, it already did! Sookie wouldn’t let you look for Eric in her house. That’s right, she’s going to leave you for a Viking! Oh and the grandmother from WHO’S THE BOSS is flirting with you. Oh where, oh where, is Tony Danza when you need him?

SWD: Mona! The original cougar… still going strong and chatting up Bill. Oh wait, he’s older. Betty White needs to be on True Blood. She could be Octavia!

Well this was a bad idea, Bill.

EC:  There was a bunch of shifter drama. Sam’s lady has a kid and a crazy ex. Who happens to be a werewolf. Of course. Couldn’t they just make the guy a crazy dentist or something? Maybe, a demented florist? Change things up a bit? Oh and more Tommy. Being that his dead beat parents put him on a steel chain leash, I don’t think will be getting away from Tommy for awhile. Ugh.

SWD: You KNOW Sam’s going to save him. Take him back in, buy him shirts.

Worst T.V. Parents of the Year Winners 2011

EC:  Poor Hoyt. His relationship with Jessica was already on shaky ground. It’s never a good thing when Jess decides to get relationship advice from PAM. It leads to naughty decisions like snacking on young men in the women’s bathroom. Seriously, that is not at all hygenic. It’s not like she’s a Edward Cullen type personality. If he was real, Edward would be carrying in sanitizing wipes and Purell. Which is funny, because he’s already dead.

SWD: Hoyt/Crystal hook up?

EC: Jessica’s saved Jason’s life with her blood. You know what that means…Jason and Jessica hook up ahead! (Which I am kind of loving!) Anything to het him away from crazy panther chick. All that inbreeding has made her a nut. It’s not going to end well. Mostly for Hoyt. He is definitely going to be moving back in with his Momma.  

SWD: Jason’s crzy “V” dreams are going to be insane@!

Let's all remember the good times, because they sure aren't going to last much longer

EC: I have a bad feeling that poor baby is going to be blamed for the evil doings of that creepy doll. Actually, what the heck is wrong with Terry and Arlene? That doll is nasty! Can you imagine the germs? Who cares if it’s evil. They should have a least put that thing in the washing machine or the fire place. That would be responsible parenting!

SWD: And I thought Cabbage Patch Dolls were creepy, but that thing?! Give me a Chuckie doll anyday.

Even Hoyt shouldn't be touching that nasty thing and he's a grown up!

Embracing the Guilty Pleasure…Another Vampire Diaries Convert

Posted in Letters to Twilight, True Blood, Twilight, Vampire Diaries, Vampires with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 17, 2011 by talksupe

Hey pretty lady! We can rock historical costumes like that Jasper can. Who's the real confederate now?

 

What’s Happens When You Leave Forks? Head Right Over to Mystic Falls!

EC: We love talking to you all about our favorite shows, books and movies! We REALLY love when you send us posts about them! One of our favorite people, Team Jacob Edward writes to tell us about her new found enjoyment of our friends from Mystic Falls! (Just wait until she watches, Season 2! Actually, she needs to catch up now! We need her to watch Season 3 in real time with us!)

Dear Talk Supe…. do you guys do entries in letter form?  Or is that weird?  Oh well, I’m going with it.
 
I finally lost my VD/VampDi/Vampire Diaries/Whatever virginity last week.
 
Per the prompting of many, but mostly from the enthusiasm from EC Stacey, I purchased the first season of Vampire Diaries some time ago.  I almost immediately watched about ½ the first episode, but I wasn’t sucked (ha) into it immediately and that was it for awhile, as it then sat collecting dust—until late last week that is.

Silly girl! This guy can never collect dust!

 
My husband went on a hunting trip (you know, the non-vampire kind of hunting) and I wasn’t in the reading or writing mood that first night he was gone.  The kids were in bed, and I decided that meant I should watch something that my husband would surely not ever want to watch with me.  Immediately I thought of watching the A&E version of Pride & Prejudice or running the gamut of the three Twilight movies.  But then I remembered the Vampire Diaries DVDs of the first season that I’d purchased and decided to at least get my money’s worth by watching the dang thing.
 
I can’t tell you the exact moment I was hooked, but what I can tell you is that for the entirety of those days, I got WAY too little sleep, my kids received too little interaction with their mother (they did a lot of playing outside (thank goodness it was nice out)… and were allowed to watch an extra movie or two… bad mom) and I was actually glad I am not working at the present moment because it meant more VD watching opportunities.  (Shame.  Oh, the shame.)
 

Distracting mommies since 2009

I still can’t say that I love VD more than Twilight.  Twilight, I think will always be in its own special place that nothing else will ever really touch.  But VD definitely contained some of the same crack that Twilight has, as I kept watching “just one more” episode until they were gone.
 
The thing that makes this important is:  I AM NOT A VAMPIRE PERSON!
 
I hear your disbelief, because (despite my love-split name) I love Twilight and Edward and, well, Edward is a vampire.  Yes, yes, I know that’s true but really I’m not a vampire person.  When I was told by a friend that I just HAVE to read Twilight, as soon as I heard it was a love story between a human girl and a vampire, my nose crinkled and I stopped listening.  If it weren’t for feeling obligated to at least give the story a shot since that friend had loaned the book to me by practically shoving it into my arms insisting I read the thing, I would have missed out on my favorite (albeit, irrationally favorite) story.

Do you really still love me more? I might be...BOTHERED!

 

You stole my line...BOTHERED!

 
So, after I devoured the Twilight series, I tried to put aside my prejudice and be more open about other books involving vampires.  I read the Almost Human series that had been described as “an adult Twilight.”  To my credit, I read the entire Trilogy.  It was okay, I’d recommend it to someone who’s into vampire books, but I found myself cheering for the girl to end up with the human guy over the vampire guy.
 
Not giving up, I borrowed Interview with a Vampire, by Anne Rice.  I think that was probably two years ago now…. I still haven’t been able to find it in me to read past the first page, it’s still on my bookshelf, and I’ve actually forgotten who I’ve borrowed it from.
 
Then, I broke down and watched the first season of True Blood after many recommendations to watch it.  I liked it.  It was okay.  But again, I found myself disappointed as I was unable to “fall” for Bill, the vampire that Sookie found so irresistible.  Again, it was okay, but the vampires were altogether too creepy to me to be desirable.  That being said, I did like it enough that I wouldn’t be opposed to watching the next season. (So, kind of progress, right?)

Oh Sookie! Why do they not love me as much as Edward, Stefan and mostly Damon?

 
I’ve read other books with vampires in them too, like the Mortal Instruments series.  Which although it’s about Nephellim, it has vampires in it.  The vampires in the Mortal Instruments books just mostly weirded me out.  (Though, the book that just came out did warm me up to one a bit.  So a bit more progress, maybe?)
 
I also read A Discovery of Witches (recommended by none other than EC Stacey, herself).  Again, I liked it.  Actually, I liked it a LOT.  And I was ticked off where the book ended, knowing that I’m going to have to wait an entire YEAR until the next one comes out. But the reason I liked the book so much, was not because of the vampire guy in it.  It was because of the main character, her powers and her discovery of her powers in the 2nd half of the book.  I was enchanted by all the things that witches in general could do.  But the main vampire guy/love interest, Matthew?  Eh, he was okay.   I liked him well enough and all.  Actually better than any of the other vampires in the other failed attempts I’d had, but I still didn’t feel that draw to him.  (Again, progress, but not quite there.)

Hey Luca…Forks needs some witches! Wait a minute, they have Rosalie! Actually, she’s a ‘B’ word that rhymes with witch.

Oh no, you didn't!

 

So I was shocked when I realized that I was a little obsessed with the Vampire Diaries.  Let’s just say this up front, I still don’t feel about Stefan or Damon the way I feel about Edward, but I do like them a lot (breakthrough!).  And I’m ALL for (haha, I almost wrote Katherine) Elena becoming a vampire (like I was for Bella in Twilight = another breakthrough!). I’m actually rooting for it. (Woah!)  And I’m so full of questions and I have so many things I could discuss; like Bonnie and the huge chip on her shoulder she acquired after she came back from the funeral or Caroline making all us blondes seem shallow and airheaded (I may have dark hair at the moment, but I am a natural blonde) or WHEN DID I START ROUTING FOR DAMON INSTEAD OF AGAINST HIM?????  How the HELL did that happen?!?!  Maybe I’ll write about that some time… there are so many things I could say about Damon and Stefan… and Damon.  🙂

Look into our eyes...you want to be our biggest fan. Oh...and buy EC Stacey that purple dress. (EC: Just kidding! But, no I really do want that dress!)

 
But, after many failed attempts with finding love for non-Twilight vampires, I find myself kind of there again.  (And it feels great!)  Now I’m just impatiently waiting for season 2 to come out on DVD, to catch up to the rest of you and then be rationed out episodes on a weekly basis too.  (It’s better that way for me… String along the hits so I don’t OD on the VD crack).  What I don’t understand is; what is it about this TV series captured my interest about vampires when so many other shows and books failed?  I have some thoughts, and I think I know what my husband would say, but I’d like to hear your theories.

But Breaking Dawn is coming! Darn television and it's multiple seasons!

But our season starts in September! People have to wait for November for you!

 
Longwindedly Befuddled,
TeamJacobEdward/TJE

A big thank you, to Team Jacob Edward! We can’t wait for her to write more for us! Let her know in the comments what a great letter she wrote and YOUR feeling about Vampire Diaries and Twilight. Oh and to make things even more interesting for your DVR’s…

True Blood starts in June!

TS Housekeeping…Edward Cullen Style

Goodness gracious, can Isabella ever clean her room?!?

Well kids, Talk Supe has some important announcements. Okay maybe not IMPORTANT, like saving dolphins or building houses in Africa important. Just some FYI, for ya’ all. Like to keep nice and neat in these parts like Edward Cullen likes his Volvo.

Just look at him eat. Ugh. The mess! I swear if Newton doesn’t close his mouth when he eats…

 First things first…Talk Supe Book Club! 

Get to your local library, bookstore or however you load up the Kindle and start reading this book!  We will be discussing it and enjoying the Yoga stylings of Matthew. (He is somewhat Edward Cullen like. He like to umm…sniff too. Which is kind of creepy, but it supposed to be scary. Soo…) If you like Twilight, you’ll like this one. (Hopefully) It is also not YA, so it for the big girls and boys.

You might be wondering why we aren’t reading the next Outlander yet. Never fear! One of us (EC), still needs to head to the library to pick it up. But, for our Outlander friends, there are visits to SCOTLAND in DoW! Also, a terrific character called Hamish. (Who I imagine should be played by Alan Cummings, when they make the movie. Which you know they will!)

So let’s start reading!

Do you miss me, ladies?

No Vampire Diaries until April! (Darn you American Idol!)

I blame you for this JLO and Stephen Tyler…not to mention Ryan Seacrest. I REALLY blame Seacrest! Sniff, sniff… But until then we are going to attempt to talk more about this…

The originals are back and better than ever!

Being Human…The British Edition and a little of this…

The Yankee Doodle version

Of course, more adventures (completely made up nonsense) about our imaginary buddy…

My hoodie and I know how to throw a kicking party!

That’s right…

More Celebrity Email/Texting/Twitter/Pictorals Theater!

You know you love them.  

So here is your super duper update. Of course, we always have more surprises to come! So pickup Discovery of Witches and get ready to chat!

You're still Team Edward! Admit it! I'm charming, romantic, respectful...maybe a tiny bit intense, but...I will clean your house, just to stay number 1!

We love comments! Follow us on Twitter @talksupe. You know you want to!
