So, this is happening:
I’m very excited 😉
April 25th on the CW.
But this week they released a trailer for their new album! Is this a thing now? Album trailers? Because it’s pretty damn cool:
Ooooh how dramatic and exciting and a bit cheesy! What are they burning? Evidence? Bodies? What’s with the kinda dorky but still awesome logo?:
All I know is that I am very excited for this new album and probably just as excited to see this pouty faced pretty boy back in denim and styling products:
Is it fall yet???
So Entertainment Weekly has 3 covers for the Vampire Diaries this week!
Looked awfully familiar to me. Hmmmmm……
You’ll note on the EW cover there is a story about “shippers” – that would be fans that root for a particular couple on a show. And do you know how that particular term got introduced into the pop culture lexicon? That’s right – by THE X-FILES 😉
Look what I’m giving my Parks and Recreation fangirl work-friends for Christmas:
It’s gonna be awesomesauce!
Between Pearl Jam nostalgia yesterday, and today’s EW article about Dean Cain and his TV movie career – I’ve been feeling very 90s. It was the decade I graduated high school, went to college, transferred colleges, graduated college, moved to Los Angeles, moved to Boston, wore a lot of flannel and long patterned dresses with Doc Martins, and fanny packs (!) and denim overall SHORTS.
Of course being ME, I also had crushes on Cute Famous Boys (covering my dorm walls with them floor to ceiling!) Some of them continue until this day (paging Pacey Witter!), some still make me smile even if the heart doesn’t pitter patter as hard (lookin’ good Luke Perry!), and some listed below were just passing fancies:
Oh how I LOVED Lois and Clark the New Adventures of Superman! (I even worked on the same studio lot and once got to make a call from inside a phone both in Metropolis!) Dean Cain was an All-American Boy who looked exotic and crushed on Lois adorably, while looking good shirtless, of course 😉 I got to meet him once at a charity event and he could not have been sweeter.
Oh Miss Chanandler Bong – how I loved you!! I was OBSESSED with Friends in its first few seasons and the major focus of my love was snarky Chandler and his Original Bromance with Joey. They filmed at that same studio lot and I found many reasons to walk by his TV Star Porsche parked outside their soundstage. I met him too – a few times (stalker much?) and even have a picture with him that my mom had framed on her wall for years and would answer “yes” when asked, “is that your daughter and her boyfriend?”
Ohhhh the London Twins. One was in Dazed and Confused, the other was my TVBoyfriend Griffin on Party of Five (I could never remember who was who then, I’m not gonna start now.) They were very pretty and decent actors – and double the eye candy! But the one that was Griffin was my favorite because he was such a wounded loser/loner with dead sister issues and romantic yearning for annoying Julia Salinger. These boys have ended up real Hollywood tragedy stories which is a waste of such Pretty and TVBoyfriend goodness.
Oh BEN. How much did I love you in Good Will Hunting? A LOT. I wanted you to show up at my door every morning with an offering from Dunkin’ Donuts. He was everything I liked – tall, dark and handsome, chiseled jaw, good hair and funny – oh man, remember when Ben Affleck was funny?! Then Bennifer I happened and he was so douchey. Then Bennifer II happened and he got so boring. (And in-between Jason Motherfuckin’ Bourne happened, and my affections transferred to Matty.) However, I am reserving the right to move Ben off this list given how hot he was in The Town (how do you like them apples?)
Like scoring two touchdowns in the final minutes of the State Championship, Friday Night Lights showed some of that Texas spirit and didn’t go down without a fight last night at the Emmys!:
AND Best Writing Drama Series!!!! Goddamn y’all!! It’s ABOUT FRICKIN’ TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Like basically anyone who ever watched and loved this show, I was screaming and cheering last night at these wins as if it was Friday night in Dillon Texas. Never in the history of EVER (and that’s not hyperbole people) has there been a show more deserving of accolades and official recognition as this beautiful little heart of a show. The love and attention that went into every character, every story arc, every episode for five seasons was like a gift.
I said this previously about FNL:
This is what this show does so well – it makes these characters real. It makes them dimensional, believable people that you care about – you root for them, you pray that they don’t make bad decisions or get caught in circumstances beyond their control and when they do – you weep for them (at least my mom and I do. I don’t think there was one episode this season that didn’t make me cry like a baby at some point.) Yes I know that they are not real – but the fact that it seems like they could be is what makes this show so emotionally resonant.
And that still stands today. I’m as proud and excited for these wins as I was of Smash and Tyra getting into college, of Jason getting a job to support his family in New York, of Vince surviving his dad and his neighborhood, of Tim Riggins for buying that piece of land to build his dreams on. They may not be real people, but these two Emmys ARE real as hell!!
It was also thrilling to see Dillon Alum Scott “Six” Porter tweeting his congrats:
That just proves that the Man behind the Coach is as decent, honorable, kind, loving and tough as we hoped he would be. I would have loved a second one-two punch of Best Actress for Connie Britton (where is Coach with out Tami Taylor y’all??) and Best Drama, but you know what? This is still as sweet as victory over Arnett-Meade 😉
So if I haven’t convinced you (and why not? I’ve convinced at least three people stateside and two internationally to watch!) then please listen to the Academy of Arts and Sciences whose entire JOB is to decide what is The Best!
Want to hear some good news? Less than TWO WEEKS until The Vampire Diaries S3 premiere!!
Awesome Blogging Pal Julie and I spent the first part of the summer hiatus sobbing into our cocktails about how much we missed the Hot, Often Shirtless, Sometimes Wet Denizens of Mystic Falls:
Then True Blood came on with the Hot, Often Shirtless, Sometimes Wet denizens of Bon Temps:
But then we got back to work and did our Fabulous Four Part Ripper Redux Series about Stefan Salvatore’s path from good guy, to bad vampire, to good vampire, to bad vampire, to good vampire, to dot, dot, dot (as Damon would say!)You can read the whole series here.
