True Blood Season 4 Wait is Over Promo More Clues

tbs4hd035
The new season 4 promo for True Blood the “wait is almost over” has caused quite a stir for all the fans. The new video has kept us guessing even more just what will happen in season 4. I addressed some of the issues in the earlier post. Here are a few more. One of the big questions left at the end of season 3 was what will happen to Queen Sophie Anne? Bill is seen attacking the Queen. In a “matrix” style jumping through the air both vampires are shown mid air in the season 3 finale and then fade out!

In the new video we see the Queen battling someone: (black blur on floor). Some fans are saying this may be a shifter due to the shape. I can see why they might believe it to be an animal since the image that is shown in the video right before the battle scene is of an animal. However-the background shown for that scene is not Bill’s home but the Hotshot shed. (note the tools in the tools in the background)

We see the Queen right after the image above:

Ok no matter how many times I do the screen cap I don’t see that. Here are the images I have so far. Included some of the mid special effect ones (there seem to be two images shown)

When they are filming the “vampire super speed” scenes some of the action seems to disappear from the screen (and added back in editing). A few of the screen caps seem to show no one on the ground:

Of course I could be wrong. I’m not saying that it is only Bill that will attacking the Queen. He will probably have help. Don’t forget also that in the season 3 finale we did see this image below: (and we know that Maxine might be gunning for the redhead  Jessica in season 4 since she stole her baby boy Hoyt’s )

We’ll have the answer of what happens in the season premiere!

One question I hope is answered soon is whether or not this screen cap from the Spring promo trailer is for True Blood or whether it is for another HBO show (looks like it could be for Boardwalk Empire). I think the first cap below might show a fire inside of the home of Hoyt and Jessica.

There was a lamp on the floor of Hoyt’s home that looked a lot like the one in the Spring promo trailer above. The screen cap above might not be from their home but I have a bad feeling that there will be a lot of anti vampire sentiment and baby vamp Jessica may be in harms way. I really hope I’m wrong.

There were already some photos posted online showing a fire at the cottages that Sam owns (Terry and Arlene’s home and also Holly live in those). I believe that the Spring promo video screen cap below shows one of Sam’s cottages below: the roof line is very similar. (this fire looks like it was set from outside)

spring135

Yes Waiting SUCKS. Hopefully we will be teased again with new promos soon. I know they are filming in Los Angeles and the timing looks like it may show vampire action (no daylight filming). Love to hear from other fans on what they see in the images.

Dead In The Family Recap

As we’re all eagerly awaiting to get our hands on a copy of Dead Reckoning, the 11th novel in the Sookie Stackhouse series by the great Charlaine Harris, how about we recap our favorite and not so favorite moments from Sookie #10, Dead in the Family.

DITF starts off with our favorite telepath slowly healing as a result of being tortured by the evil water fae, Neave and Lochlan as well as dealing with the loss of loved ones (damn I miss Claudine). Even our beloved Viking is suffering and we learn why he couldn’t come to Sookie’s rescue when she was being tortured. Victor’s people had Eric chained with silver and refused to allow him to get involved in fae matters. Teary Eric tells Sookie, “I hurt with you. I bled with you- not only because we’re bonded, but because of the love I have for you.” Don’t worry Eric I never doubted your love for Sookie unlike some haters out there!

We see Sookie and Eric’s relationship really grow throughout the book and Sookie finally admits that the love she feels for Eric is genuine and not because of the blood bond. One of my favorite moments is when Sookie visits Eric’s house (this is also the first time the readers get a description of the Viking’s home) “Jump,” Eric said, holding out his hands and smiling. I laughed. I took a running start, and leaped. Eric caught me, his hands clamped around my waist. He lifted me up until my head touched the ceiling. Then he lowered me for a kiss. I wrapped my legs around his torso, my arms around his neck. We were lost in each other for a long moment. Pam said, “Back to earth, monkey girl. Time is passing.”

We also see Pam and Sookie’s friendship growing. The two blondes get ambushed by Victor’s second in command, Bruno Brazell and Corinna. Sookie kills Bruno and Pam kills Corinna. Then when Eric’s maker and brother come to town, Sookie warns Pam and Pam delivers possibly my favorite line in the book “fuck a zombie”. Sookie’s not the only Stackhouse bonding with Pam. Jason gives Pam some of his blood when she gets hurt. “It was good. Thank you, panther, ” she said, and I thought my brother smirked a little…” Am I the only one hoping for a little more Pam and Jason bonding in the next book???

Bill Compton you are still around?  Bill stays sick throughout most of the book! Sookie helps track down Bill’s sister, Judith Vardamon, in the hopes that her blood will help heal Bill and it works. I actually liked the Judith storyline and am curious to see if she sticks around. Another Bill storyline that got resolved was his relationship to the Bellefleurs. Caroline Bellefleur is on her deathbed and finally learns that Bill is her great grandfather and also that he had anonymously given them money way back in the earlier books.

Claude moves in with Sookie, our favorite teacup telepath Hunter is back and I kinda like mentally unstable Dermot. Selfish cousin Claude is good with kids and is actually around to protect Sookie! I liked this side of Claude! I was also glad to see Sookie bonding with Hunter and helping him with his ability. Of course Claude and Hunter being in Sookie’s house led to another great moment, a love note from the Viking!  “My lover, I came in too close to dawn to wake you, though I was tempted. Your house is full of strange men. A fairy upstairs and a little child downstairs-but as long as there’s not one in my lady’s chamber, I can stand it…” Did I mention I like crazy Dermot? He’s kind of sweet isn’t he and he saves Sookie by killing Colman, the fairy causing oh so much trouble for Sookie.

I also loved some of the connections to the show. Like “Bad Things” playing at Merlotte’s and Lorena’s last name is Ball!!! Loved that we finally found out where Debbie Pelt is buried. Loved that Niall wrote a letter to Sookie on the skin of the water fae that helped kill her parents, cause what else would Niall write on?

So some of my not so favorite moments from the book! Amelia leaves for New Orleans. I understand that she needed to move out to make room for new houseguests and new storylines, but I miss that nosey witch! I also wasn’t crazy about Eric’s vampire territory division/hierarchy explanation. Normally, when Eric speaks my reaction is similiar to Sookies, endorphins flood my system, but I could have lived without this lecture. Then there’s Appius Livius Ocella and Alexei Romanov, Eric’s maker and brother. I loved hearing more about Eric’s background, but Ocella and Alexei were ANNOYING! Needless to say I was happy that they died. Now let’s talk about Alcide! I was such a defender of Alcide until this book. I’ve really gotten tired of him using Sookie. Although I found the shaman ritual very interesting, I hated Alcide’s manipulation of Sookie!!! “What is it?” It’s a drug he said. “but before you walk out, let me tell you that the last shaman took it several times without any lasting ill effect.”…”A year ago,” I said, “you wouldn’t have asked this of me.” “A year ago,” he answered, “you wouldn’t have hesitated to drink.” I crossed to the desk and tossed it down. Seriously Alcide is this what a friend of the pack has to do?

So now it’s time for the next part of Sookie’s journey!  I’ve very excited to read Dead Reckoning!  Can’t wait to see what happens next!

Charlaine Harris Interview: 5 Questions

dsc_0343

Charlaine Harris’ eleventh book in the Sookie Stackhouse series “Dead Reckoning” is due out 5/3/11. Fans have been waiting and anticipating just what will they learn in the new book. Becca Martin posted the following interview regarding “Dead Reckoning” with Ms. Harris-Five Minutes Five Questions. The interview does contain spoilers so don’t look if you don’t want to be spoiled. (you know you want to click the link …LOL)

The big question for many fans is how will the series end for Sookie. Big debates/discussions (ok and almost all out wars between the different “teams/sides”) on just who if anyone will Sookie have her happily ever after. Ms. Harris has said that she has know

Dead Reckoning Cover Artwork Possible Clue

The eleventh installment to the Sookie Stackhouse novels is due out on 5/3/11. The cover artwork (shown above) is from Lisa Desimini who has done the art for all of the novels to date. Fans try to figure out any possible clues to the action in the book based on the cover art. It does not always coincide with the action (per Charlaine Harris) but it tends to give a bit of a glimpse in my opinion.

Something about the new book caught my eye and I finally figured out what was bothering me. This is the first book where Sookie appears alone. Usually there is a vampire also on the cover whether it is Bill Compton or Eric Northman. Yes even Quinn the were-tiger appears on a cover. In Dead in Dallas she is shown on top of a coffin (assuming Bill is in the coffin a bit of a nod to the Anubis flight they take together where Bill is in the coffin for his daytime sleep) This is the only cover where Sookie is alone and yes she is upside down. Perhaps her world is going to be turned upside down this book? I have a feeling that Sookie may be facing the reality of a life alone.

I can’t wait to see the new book!

Here is a link to the amazing artwork of the book covers by Lisa Desimini. She has all the prints on her site.

True Blood Season 4 Episode 4.09 Possible “Songs”

The music in True Blood has always been something as a fan I always have looked forward to every episode. I keep forgetting to post my “guesses” for possible songs that will be featured when I post the episode titles. I’ll start with the most recent episode title-Episode 4.09 is tentatively titled “Run”. There are several songs that have that as their title. Alan Ball spends a good amount of time researching songs on iTunes and really picks just the right one to set the mood for the episode.

I have a feeling that the song by Vampire Weekend may be the one chosen. here is the video with lyrics. It does seem to fit.

Another possibility might be this version “Run” by Gnarles Barkely. (but it seems to say Run Away but it is titled Run..)

We’ll find out when the episode finally airs! Waiting SUCKS!

Comic-Con 2011 Press Release-Eisner Hall of Fame Nominees

The Eisner Awards judges have selected four individuals to automatically be inducted into the Will Eisner Comic Awards Hall of Fame this summer. These inductees are Ernie Bushmiller, cartoonist on the Nancynewspaper strip for nearly 50 years; Jack Jackson (Jaxon), pioneer underground cartoonist (co-founder of Ripoff Press) and graphic novelist (Commanche Moon); Marty Nodell, Golden Age artist best known as the co-creator of Green Lantern; and Lynd Ward, woodcut artist hailed as a pioneer of the graphic novel (God’s Man).

Past judges have selected two automatic inductees, but this year that number has been expanded to four. “The judges felt that some significant contributors to comics’ history were being consistently overlooked by the regular voters,” notes Jackie Estrada, the Eisner Awards Administrator. “Choosing only two creators to induct was proving too difficult this year. The solution they chose was to single out individuals from four aspects of the medium.”

The judges have also chosen 14 nominees from which voters will select 4 to be inducted in the Hall of Fame for 2011. These nominees are Bill BlackbeardChris ClaremontKim Deitch,Rudolph DirksMort DruckerJenette KahnGeorge McManusDennis O’Neil,Harvey PekarCliff SterrettRoy Thomas,Rodolphe TöpfferGeorge Tuska, and Marv Wolfman. See below for complete bios.

Online voting is now open

 

To vote, you must be a professional working in the comics or related industries, as a creator (writer, artist, cartoonist, colorist, letterer), a publisher an editor, a retailer (comics store owner or manager), a graphic novels librarian, or a comics historian/educator. Eligible voters can visit www.eisnervote.com to register and then select up to four picks in the Hall of Fame category. The deadline for voting is March 25.

Causes-Sharing Post on Autism

One of the reasons I started a fan site was to help out with charitable causes. Fans are amazing when it comes to helping out causes. One of my friends shared this post on Autism that a family friend wrote. I want to share this with fans here. It is not a True Blood news item or Alexander Skarsgard related but one that touched my heart. Hope this post helps bring new awareness to Autism.

Link to : 99 Tacos.blogspot.com

an excerpt from the entry:

My pal Jolene is getting me a cool new t-shirt. It says, “My kid has autism! What’s your excuse?”

Of course, neither of my daughters have autism. Jo and her husband Ken are not as fortunate, though it seems awkward to say that because neither have ever said or done anything to indicate that they consider themselves unfortunate. Whatever the case, I’m going to proudly wear that t-shirt in support of Jo and Ken’s efforts to increase autism awareness.

Their youngest son, Reese, is autistic. While I’ve become close to their family during the past year, I’m still just beginning to understand the challenges of raising an autistic child. I admire Jo and Ken for their ability to endure what must occasionally be – let’s be honest here – a difficult situation. I enjoy Reese. He’s usually happy-go-lucky. Friendly and talkative. He’s very into super heroes, and I think he’s happiest when he’s hanging out with his older brother, Chase.

Not long after I met Jo and Ken, I was hanging out in their garage playing their new “Buck Hunter” stand-up video game in the garage. Reese stood next to me, watching me do my worst. First, I shot a doe, a no-no in this game. Reese’s response: “you suck!”. Then I shot about 10 times at a buck and missed every time. “You suck!” I did a lot of shooting and a lot more missing. After each turn, more the same. “You suck!” “You suck!” “You suck!”

Evidently brutal honesty is one symptom of autistic behavior.

I wonder how many of my friends and family understand just how prevalent autism is? Or, how quickly the rate of diagnosis is increasing? Jo pointed me toward autismspeaks.orgfor some facts.

“Today, it is estimated that one in every 110 children is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. An estimated 1.5 million individuals in the U.S. and tens of millions worldwide are affected by autism. Government statistics suggest the prevalence rate of autism is increasing 10-17 percent annually. There is not established explanation for this increase, although improved diagnosis and environmental influences are two reasons often considered. Studies suggest boys are more likely than girls to develop autism and receive the diagnosis three to four times more frequently. Current estimates are that in the United States alone, one out of 70 boys is diagnosed with autism.”

One out of 70 boys. That kinda blows the mind.  read on:

Celebrating Valentine’s Day True Blood Style

Photo Credit: ©2010 HBO 3.08

Bad Romance started playing on my iPod and I couldn’t help but think of Alcide and Debbie Pelt. Every time I hear the song it reminds me of the two of them or pretty much any of Alcide’s relationships! Bookies…can you say Maria-Star Cooper or Annabelle? No worries Alcide, Bad Romance is the story of my life too! Gee, maybe Alcide and I should hook up???

tbs3-05alcide

Hmm, what would it be like to date Alcide-I’ve got the the hottest abs on the planet-Herveaux?(see photo above in case you need reminding well..even if you don’t need reminding enjoy those abs!)

We’d ride around in the Herveaux Contracting truck, hang out at Lou Pines after work, Janice could do my hair, occasional catfights with his ex, weekends at packmaster events! Tempting, but sorry Alcide, my heart belongs to the Viking! Anyway, back to Alcide and Debbie…dysfunctional relationship right? Of course this got me thinking about all the twisted relationships on True Blood. What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than by exploring the show’s dysfunctional couples! So cuddle up with your jar of Talbot and let’s get started!

tbs3-04franklindr

Ladies if your date shows up with flowers, duct tape, an ugly ass nightgown from the Victorian era and offers to take you to Shoneys…do not invite him in! Franklin Mott is the reason you should never, ever, ever have a one night stand! Tara has the worst luck with men. I’m thinking she needs a counseling session with Dr. Phil right about now! Okay so maybe I shouldn’t be admitting this but Franklin might not have been such a bad bf. Think about it! He’d never let anyone insult you and he could type “motherf**ker” faster than any motherf**ker I’ve ever seen. Didn’t you love the way he said “good fruit” as in “ if there’s one thing I miss more than sunshine, it is good fruit.” You would just need to remember some basic rules with Franklin. Never take him to a casino and never, ever say “we need to talk,” lest you want to wake up surrounded by body parts!

Guys, if your date shows up at your front door soaking wet because she had to swim in a lake so her meth dealing daddy and half-brother/fiancé can’t track her scent, you might want to re-think that relationship! Then again the guy in question is Jason Stackhouse! I freakin love Jason! He gets dumber every season and he’s met his match with Crystal! They’re both dumber than a box of hair! You have to love Jason’s way of thinking though “everyone in this town ain’t what they’re supposed to be, so you turn into a panther…I love you.” How sweet! So is it irony, poetic justice or whatever you call it that Jason-p***y overflow-Stackhouse is left in charge of a town full of pussycats??? Crystal better hope that Jason doesn’t apply his “sometimes you need to destroy something to save it” philosophy to Hotshot!

Talbot and Russell sound like an old, bickering married couple. Talbot bitches that Russell never takes him out and prefers to surround himself with sycophants. It’s the usual complaints from Talbot: Franklin’s brains won’t wash off the guest linens; burying werewolves under the gazebo; a burned Celtic tapestry. Oh poor Talbot, are your diamond slippers chafing? I didn’t really think of Talbot and Russell as dysfunctional until Russell went loco, eviscerated a newscaster on live tv and started carrying Talbot remains around in a crystal urn! BTW, Russell I tried carrying “Talbot remains” around in an apothecary jar once and it was a mess, got all over my clothes and car. photo below: I could use a few tips! Talbot was one of my favorite characters from Season 3, probably because we both have a serious case of OCD and it’s pretty much armageddon when someone chips a dessert glass in my home too.

Shall we play a little vampire twist-her? Ah Bill and Lorena take twisted relationships literally don’t they? It took me weeks to recover from their hate sex scene. These two have a seriously messed up history! Remember their showdown at Hotel Carmilla? Bill and Lorena can mess up a room better than Charlie Sheen. I bet Eric freaked when he got the hotel bill. Now be honest, how many of you were cheering for Lorena to stake Bill? I know I would NEVER hope for anything like that! Alas, Bill knocked Lorena over the head with a 52 inch plasma television and got away. Dammit! How about their reunion at Russell’s mansion? Bill throws a lantern at Lorena and sets her on fire. (Stop, drop and roll Lorena, stop, drop and roll!) Really William, there’s no need for such shenanigans! I never understood the Lorena hate, she was so marvelously psycho and don’t even get me started on her fabulous wardrobe!

I couldn’t wrap this up without discussing some not so dysfunctional couples! Terry and Arlene! Wait they might be a little twisted also! They hooked up during one of Maryann’s freakfests and Arlene is carrying a serial killers baby! All I know is that I LOVE Terry’s happy dance when he finds out the baby is safe! And of course Hoyt and Jessica! How many times have you said aww when these two are on screen? I love them together!!! So back off Summer, it’s going to take more than your best underwear and biscuits to steal Hoyt away from Jessica! I’m a little worried for our young lovers in the upcoming season…creepy doll, creepy house and a gun toting Maxine!

Well Truebies hope you have an amazing Valentine’s Day!!! I’m sure you all know how I want to celebrate..some quality time with the Viking in the Fangtasia basement!!!

My Favorite Eric and Sookie Moments from Dead to the World

129 days or so to go until the Season 4 premiere of True Blood and I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m going crazy! I need a little Viking fix and I need it bad. So in an effort to placate myself I’m reading Book 4, Dead to the World, for the millionth time. If all goes well, my prayers (and sacrificial offerings) will be answered and Season 4 of TB will follow Book 4. Those of you who know me are aware that I freakin WORSHIP Book 4 Eric or as he’s commonly referred to as… amnesiac Eric or as I’m going to refer to him from now on… the REAL Eric!

Bead was nice enough (or crazy enough) to let me blog on her site so I wanted to share my favorite Eric and Sookie moments from Book 4. No I’m not JUST going to write about pages 120 to 126 or about the shower scene to put ALL shower scenes to shame. I warn you that I have crazy random thoughts and I am without a doubt biased towards the Viking God that is Eric Northman. So here are my fave Eric/Sookie moments from DTTW in no particular order! WARNING to those who haven’t read the books, there are spoilers ahead! My apologies to Charlaine Harris if I butcher any of these quotes!

#1 I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been driving home from work only to run across a half-naked Viking vampire with amnesia running down the street. Try never!!! I’m not as lucky as Sookie Stackhouse. “A running man at three in the morning on January first, he was running down the parish road, apparently running for his life…the man was tall, blond, and clad only in blue jeans…But in that moment I realized who he was. I leaped out of the car and took off after him… Eric! I yelled. It’s me!” And so it begins, Sookie gets the best house guest ever!

#2 Going to bed holding hands with Eric! Ah damn you Sookie! I love, love, love this scene cause it shows how much Eric and Sookie trust one another. Eric is under a witches spell, terrified and with no memory of who he is and yet he feels safe with Sookie. Sookie trusts Eric enough to let him sleep in her bed. Sookie may not get to experience the gracious plenty yet, but this is just a freakin adorable moment.
“As I climbed up into the high old bed, the large fly in my personal ointment did the same. Had I actually told him he could get in bed with me? Well, I decided, as I wriggled down under the soft old sheets and the blanket and the comforter, if Eric had designs on me, I was just too tired to care.
“Woman?”
“Hmmm?”
“What’s your name?”
“Sookie. Sookie Stackhouse.”
“Thank you, Sookie.”
“Welcome, Eric.”
“Because he sounded so lost-the Eric I knew had never been one to do anything other than assume others should serve him-I patted around under the covers for his hand. When I found it, I slid my own over it. His palm was turned up to meet my palm, and his fingers clasped mine. And though I would not have thought it possible to go to sleep holding hands with a vampire, that’s exactly what I did.”

#3 Eric Northman tells me, I mean Sookie, that she’s beautiful.

“I’m used to people thinking I’m crazy, or at least off mentally. I’m not trying to sound like I think I’m Poor Pitiful Pearl, but I don’t have a lot of fans, and I’m used to that.”

“That confirms my bad opinion of humans in general,” Eric said. He pulled my coat off my shoulders, looked at it with distaste, hung it on the back of one of the chairs pushed in under the kitchen table. “You are beautiful.”
No one had ever looked me in the eyes and said that. I found I had to lower my head. “You are smart, and you are loyal,” he said relentlessly, though I waved a hand to ask him to quit. “You have a sense of fun and adventure.”“Cut it out,” I said.“Make me,” he said. “You have the most beautiful breasts I’ve ever seen. You’re brave.” I put my fingers across his mouth, and his tongue darted out to give them a quick lick. I relaxed against him, feeling the tingle down to my toes. “You’re responsible and hardworking,” he continued. Before he could tell me that I was good about replacing the garbage can liner when I took the garbage out, I replaced my fingers with my lips. “There,” he said softly, after a long moment. “You’re creative too.”For the next hour, he showed me that he, too, was creative.

#4 Eric and Sookie kick some Debbie Pelt arse! Love this part! Psycho Debbie Pelt shows up at Sookie’s house, Eric takes a bullet for Sookie, Sookie kills Debbie and Eric gets rid of the body. Now that’s teamwork!
When I turned on the light, Debbie Pelt was smiling at me.
She had been sitting in the dark at my kitchen table, and she had a gun in her hand.
Without saying a word, she fired at me.
But she’d reckoned without Eric, who was fast, faster than any human. He took the bullet meant for me, and he took it right in the chest. He went down right in front of me…. and I shot Debbie Pelt while she was still staring, shocked, at Eric, who was on his knees and coughing up blood.

#5 Eric and Sookie and “The Shower Scene.” Okay, how many times has everyone read pages 120-126? Memorized the pages? Grabbed the nearest Viking and acted it out? Do I really need to quote a passage here cause there are so many parts I love. It’s the pages that introduced us to phrases such as “a gracious plenty” and “Yikes. Yahoo. Yum.” It’s the pages where we learned that “if there was an international butt competition, Eric would win, hands down-or cheeks up. He would get a large, large trophy.” I just love it when Eric says lover and so does Sookie! The way he said “lover” was like a caress, like he was calling me by a name no other man had ever used before or ever would after. After the events of Club Dead doesn’t Sookie just deserve some fun time with Eric? “…it was beautiful Eric, who desired me, who was hungry for me, in a world that often let me know it could do very well without me.” Yes , “The Shower Scene” is incredible, but it’s actually not my favorite Eric and Sookie moment.

So my FAVORITE moment is towards the end of the book and yes it gives me chills and gets me all teary-eyed. Yah I know I’m a dork! Eric and Sookie are on there way to take down Hallow and her coven and just when I thought I couldn’t adore Eric Northman anymore he utters “We could go back,” he said. In the dome light of the car, his face looked hard as stone. “We could go back to your house. I can stay with you always. We can know each other’s bodies in every way, night after night. I could love you.” His nostrils flared, and he looked suddenly proud. “I could work. You would not be poor. I would help you.”
“Sounds like a marriage,” I said, trying to lighten the atmosphere. But my voice was too shaky.
“Yes,” he said.”

Wow, Sookie has some serious self-control cause I would have grabbed the Viking and headed home so damn fast. I mean seriously Sookie, screw the witches, let them take over BonTemps, did you hear what Eric just said???

So there you have it, my favorite Eric/Sookie moments from DTTW! Keeping my fingers crossed that we see these scenes in Season 4!   Agree with me?  What was your favorite moment from Dead to the World?
