I tried all day yesterday to post and finally I just was able to post yesterday’s and then to see my Saturday post never made it through…I am no longer posting late at night! Here was Sat’s post and I will post today’s later. Sometimes it can be so frustrating!

Source Wanda is my new hero, wait all of you are for sharing on twitter.
Above is from Mac, what the hell is going on, several photos (some posted yesterday) show them all fanged out and where is Pam?
Many think of Godric as a sweet Buddhist vampire but he was actually a real baddass. In seconds, he ripped out the throats of Eric’s companions and you know, if they were hanging out with Eric, they weren’t too shabby in the warrior department themselves.
I wish we could learn more about Godric’s backstory. I’m sure he had a rich and fascinating history before he even met the Viking.
5. Nan Flanagan – ‘I have proof. Scientific. People are far dumber than they realise’ & ‘What have you gone and fucked up now?’
4. Lafayette Reynolds – ‘I mean, if she talked any more shit she’d be shaped like a toilet’ & ‘ I know every man, whether straight, gay or George mother-fucking Bush is terrified of the pussy.’
3. Pamela Swynford de Beaufort – ‘Do not tell me you put our entire species at risk for a gash in a sundress?’ & ‘Blah, blah… vampire emergency. Blah.’
2. Godric – ‘I am actually older than your Jesus. I wish I could have known him, but I missed it.’ & ‘A human with me at the end and human tears. Two-thousand years… and I can still be surprised. In this I see God.’
1. Eric Northman – ‘Everyone who claims to love you: your friends, your brother, even Bill Compton; they all gave up on you. I never did.’ & ‘Oh come on, Pam. They’re funny. They’re like humans, but miniature. Teacup humans.’
True Blood was filming in New Orleans late last night! Lucky fans were able to get some great photos with the cast and also some of the rehearsals. The photo above shows Denis O’Hare, Stephen Moyer and Alexander Skarsgard with a lucky fan!! (Carolyn Hennesy, Michael McMillian, Peter Mensah and Lucy Griffiths were aslo seen in some of the photos) The image above is from melinnis. SOURCE
It also look like Eric is helping Bill!? He is seen carrying Bill Compton on his back.
Here’s another angle on the “vamp piggy-back ride”:
Eric Northman, Viking Vampire to the rescue! Season 5 looks like it has a lot of wild scenes for us. Even Denis O’Hare could not help tweeting how wild it was last night with the crowds watching them film.
This fan got Denis O’Hare looking quite fangy:

Love this one showing Carolyn as Rosalyn all fangy! Along with Denis O’Hare and Alexander Skarsgard:

I was a movie critic for 15 years, and one of the best perks of all time is seeing movies for free, so today I availed myself of that and went to an 11:35 a.m. showing of “Battleship.”
What follows is a tiny bit of a review, but mostly just the thoughts that ran through my brain as the the story unfolded.
The movie opens with a story of how Earth finds a planet in another galaxy that is a whole lot like Earth. So of course, we build a satellite to send a message to them. Well, they answer and it’s not a friendly visit.
The one thing I thought would happen did. I won’t spoil it, but if you’ve watched the trailers, I’m betting you can figure it out without much arm twisting.
Of course, my absolute favorite part of the movie was seeing Alexander Skarsgard starring as Stone Hopper. It’s even a great soldier name.
He stars as a Navy commander who makes his brother Alex (the equally dishy Taylor Kitsch) join the Navy to keep him out of trouble.
Some time later, they are stationed on separate destroyers in Hawaii.
It’s time for war games with several allied countries and the movie really gets going when Alex and a Japanese naval officer get into a fight and the admiral (Liam Neesom) tells Stone his brother will be thrown out of the Navy as soon as the exercises are over. Stone travels to his brother’s ship to tell him in person.
Luckily for Alex, it’s about this time that radars worldwide light up with a group of objects heading right our our home sweet home. Yup, it’s ET come to visit, and they do not want to sit with you and me and watch “True Blood.” No, they are coming to look over their newest vacation property, planet Earth.
One ship crashes in the atmosphere, taking out a big hunk of Hong Kong and several other countries. The rest land in the Pacific Ocean right near Hawaii. When Alex and two other sailors take a small boat out to investigate the big metal thing sticking up out of the water, a simple touch causes it to light up and put a protective dome over a Japanese destroyer and two American ones — the ones with Stone and Alex on them, as well as the Hawaiian Island chain.
All communications inside the dome are cut off from the rest of the planet, so the rest of the ships in the war games only know there are three ships in the dome with Lord knows what from outer space.
The aliens turn out to have taken the reptilian path of evolution, unlike the mammals on Earth. The humans are outgunned and have a steep learning curve before they find a plan that works to fight the aliens.
Skarsgard, while showing no fangy goodness, did a good job of playing a serious, by-the-book soldier who loves his brother and will do almost anything to keep Alex out of trouble and most importantly out of jail.
Alex is in love with the admiral’s daughter Sam (Brooklyn Decker). They want to marry but she insists that Alex must ask her father for her hand in marriage. Stone thinks it’s funny and hopes the relationship will help his brother group up.
Skarsgard and Kitsch have great chemistry in their scenes together.
It’s interesting to see our Sheriff Eric in a more buttoned-down role, and best of all, we get to see him in the sunlight. A whole lot. In one scene, he’s wearing soccer gear and man, he has great legs.
Alex looks great both in dress whites and in the blue camouflage uniform, and if he ever needs a costume to wear on the “True Blood” set, say for Halloween, New Years Eve, Arbor Day, whatever, I think the Navy whites would be splendid.
If you want to know more about the movie, well, either go see it or ask me and I’ll tell you what you want to know. Otherwise, I’m not giving anything else away.
