True Blood: Bitingly Good

Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer, and Alexander Skarsgård were on the cover of Rolling Stone a little while ago and they looks gruesomely sexy.

I finished watching season 3 of True Blood. The whole vampire-warewolf thing is a little overdone everywhere, but for some reason I can’t quite stop watching. Now they’re introducing other mythological creatures into the series; it’s interesting.

I haven’t read the books but a close friend has and there are obviously some changes made. Can someone tell me what’s up with Lafayete and the whole nurse witchcraft? Sookie’s light? The crazy Fellowship of the Sun people. It’s crazy. But it’s addicting! Something that I really like about the show is how they incorporate the 1940’s glamour into the show. It’s subtle and mostly seen in the vampire community in the show. It’s lovely.

I like Jessica the new vampire, portrayed by Deborah Ann Woll. (I can see lesbians really falling for this straight girl. I can see might have the same effect on younger guys). Even though she starts off as a bratty character, I like her growth.

And I also really loved Pam, Eric’s vampire prodigy, played by Kristin Bauer. She’s hilarious and bitingly witty and bitchy. Reminds me of someone I know. Hmm…

I especially loved Talbot, Russell consort; he was especially sexy. His feminine air was charming and I thought he made for a sexy vampire. He was also quite sassy, which you know I loved.

The actor’s name is Theo Alexander, which I found looks quite different than his character in real life.

It looks like I’ll have to wait till next summer to find out what happens next. Oh, HBO, you’re such a tease.


Goo-Goo for Gaga?

Alright gays and gals [and possibly straight guys?] let’s talk about Gaga. Yes, we’re gaying it up a notch.

Lady Gaga is on the July 2010 cover of Rolling Stone magazine. She’s sporting that blonde bob we’ve been seeing lately (watch the Alejandro video, you’ll see her sporting an ultra-blonde bowl haircut). I’m not crazy about the short hair. But she looks all sorts of fierce on the cover, doesn’t she? Okay, here’s what I have to say: Gaga is a genius. She’s a really talented artist and all of her weird “I’m gonna wear muppets as an evening gown” thing worked because the gays love her and the rest of the county is coming along. Attention celebrities: if you support the gays, we will catapult you into super-stardom.

I (as well as several fashion magazines) wouldn’t nominate Gaga as a best-dressed celebrity, but she’s being weird and artsy, which I do love. Her music’s catchy and caters to gays who just wanna dance! Even if her music videos are ten minute-long mini-movies (ahem…Telephone and Alejandro). She’s well-liked in the media and a large chunk of the gay population in the US have sworn allegiance to her. It’s a little creepy, the whole mindless drone follower thing, but each their own.

The fact is Gaga is now an icon. She has a huge following and her fans, the “little monsters,” are super loyal. Okay, but here’s what I don’t get: why is it that people (I’m talking to you, gays.) find a need to choose between divas. Remember way back in the day (I was in middle school) when it was Britney versus Christina? And then it was…what? Lindsay versus Hilary? (How embarrassing, right?) I mean, really people? “Oh but they’re so similar! Who’s copying whom?” Oh shut up! lol Lady Gaga’s an original in many ways, I don’t think many people are arguing that. However, Gaga, as well as many other artists, draw creative inspiration from various sources including other artists. In Gaga’s recent work we see TONS of Madonna references. We can’t associate all leather couture extreme fashion with Gaga, that’s just silly. What if…now, stay with me gays…what IF…it’s possible to like one artist independently from another artist. Wow…I think I just heard a few lightbulbs go off. Let everyone do their thing and enough with the rivalries. Talent speaks for itself and these artists are constantly changing, anyway.

I’d love to work with Gaga someday. Hmm…I wonder if we’d click. (I can hear her now, saying, “Don’t call me Gaga.”) 😛
