Are you ready for some football??

I promise that I'm not going to constantly talk sports in my LJ. But I do have to say this: I've been a Cowboys fan since I was a kid. If you have issues with America's Team, take it elsewhere. I'm Texan before I'm a lady, is what I'm saying. :D (Super Bowl, baby!! How good were those rookies? Felix Jones! That kid... Awesome.) And UT and U of Utah have a good year coming up, and if my alma matter (Univ. of Utah) doesn't kick the ever loving shit out of BYU this year, I may boycott the color red.

OH!!! OH MY GOD I ALMOST FORGOT. So, #1, Blood on the Highway is up for 6 B Movie Awards, including one for Nick Brendon, Best Supporting Actor, which is cool, but also: we are in Fear Fest with the casts from Friday the 13th, Halloween, and Monster Squad for a panel/convention. And we will be on the panel, too, which is freaking crazy and awesome. moosesal GUESS WHO DECIDED TO BE AT THE NEXT FearFest and not THIS one?

COREY FELDMAN and the entire cast of the original Lost Boys. *Cries!!!!* Dude, that would have been crack heaven. Corey freaking Feldman, co-panelist with me. I would have asked him about his love relationship with Haim to see if it was anything like my fic. No, I wouldn't, because that is bad behavior. But I would have been thinking it.

Last, uh... did anyone like True Blood on HBO last night? Because I was scratching my head a lot. Why does the "hot vampire" have to be so freaking unattractive? He looks like he needs a nap, a facial, and a bath. Just me? I don't know what's happened to Anna Paquin, but she had dead eyes for most of that episode. *hums "Going through the motions......"*

oh my god the season finale to Metalocalypse, nooooooooo!

Oh man, that sucks. But who knows. Maybe something will happen to take you back to it again the next year? I still haven't watched the last two eps of Two Coreys because I can't deal with the sad of it being over. I'm holding out on myself until I'm ready for a good cry. I need help.

*holds you* Those last two eps are pretty upsetting, so you might be wise to hold off, actually.

And I could always attend the next FearFest, but that's not the same as being on a panel with the guy, you know? Just... how cracktastically awesome would that have been??

I watched a leaked copy of the True Blood pilot and i have to say, my reaction to it was utterly...meh. I didn't enjoy it at all. Cliche, a bit dull, 'hot' vamp guy was just mildly attractive and everything else was just...meh.

Maybe the books are awesome.

I just sat there confused. "Wasn't this supposed to be an awesome series?" <-- I never read it, so I didn't know.

The "hot" vamp was incredibly tepid. He looked like a deranged homeless guy.

DUDE. how cool would that have been to have Corey Feldman? AND JASON PATRIC, hand model. Hahahahaha.

I don't know about Padalecki - he'll probably be in the middle of filming when it comes around, so I don't know. I'll be OF COURSE updating if he's going to be there. And yes, I would inform him of his miraculous ability to spontaneously heal ovaries.

I bet you were worn out after all that activity last night! Call whenever, no big. You have important leetle schmusens that require mom lovings. <3

Fear Fest is in Dallas, which is v v convenient for me. :D

Forgive me for asking if you've already mentioned it, but when is your movie going to be on DVD? Any idea if Netflix will have it?

I got "True Blood" from Blockbuster last week and I didn't think it was too bad. Of course, I don't have HBO so I won't be able to follow it, but I'm interested to see how well it follows the books it's based on: Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris.

No clue to when it'll be on DVD - don't you worry, I'll be sure to post and post and post about it. :D

We're still hoping for distribution in major theaters. It's a looooooong process from filming to showing.

Never read the books, so I don't know how faithful the show is. Just... it was confusing both in the story and the tone of the show, imo.

I missed True Blood - crashed out - but am hoping my husband taped recorded it (taped? send me back to 1989, that's like, so totally old!). I've seen a few of the promos and was quite surprised at the casting choices, though. No one looks like I imagined them from the books. Sookie especially I pictured as more of a babe. (Though I will say that Bill at least looks like a guy that could've fought in the Civil War, if nothing else. )

On the other hand, it does seem like they would be trying to keep the essence of the books in setting, story, characters, etc. intact so I was excited for that.

Anna Paquin's got a hot bod in this, and I think she has a cute face. But, I've not read the books so I have no idea. I'm sure they'll show it a million times this week.

I'll be interested in seeing how next week's episode affects me - if it doesn't make me stop with the "uh..... huh?" face, then that's it for me.

Wouldn't that have been??? i <3 Lost boys, too. GREAT movie.

And thank you! It's so cool.

Paquin was just playing Sookie wrong. And I don't have a problem with Bill, who isn't supposed to be 'hot' (in the books, Sookie is attracted to him because he's different, she can't hear his mental chatter, and oh, he's kind of cute.) Did you notice that in her dream, he was better groomed? Hee.

I'm hoping it gets better. I believe that Sam the shapechanger might be my new ICB, though.

Oh, okay, it's the quiet in her head, THAT I can understand. See, I'm going off your posts where you clearly enjoyed the books, so if you're not that into the show, then I feel justified. :D

HAHAHAHAHA - I didn't pick up on that about her dream! HEE.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

(No, it's physically impossible for me to be pushy with a celebrity. I was in a movie with two of them and couldn't bring myself to get a picture taken with either of them! My husband finally stepped in and said, "Let me get one of you both.") I AM DORK, WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?! Ahahahahahaha.

Felix Jones
Woo Pig Sooie! I heart me some Felix Jones. Arkansas football will not be the same this year without him and Darren McFadden. I'm going to lower myself to the ghetto and watch Oakland this year because McFadden puts the awe in awesome. Jones isn't far behind and it wouldn't surprise me if Jones has a better pro career than McFadden. Either way, the Cowboys and Raiders are on our Must See list this year.

Re: Felix Jones
Man, I love me some Felix Jones. He's that old school Razorback football player, too. There is no bad there!

(I still can't bring myself to root for Oakland, though. It's Cowboys or nothing for me. *G*)

I haven't watched the final version of True Blood yet but I have it saved to watch today. I did, however, watch the pre-air screener that was 'leaked' all over the internet and enjoyed it. I heard that a good bit of stuff got changed from the way it was in that screener.

I guess I'll just have to reserve judgement until I've watched. I'll edit after I've seen it and let you know what I thought.

ooooooh, interesting! I may have to go seek that out, then!

Yes yes, feel free to tell me how you feel it's being adapted!

I don't think I'll ever be ready for football on the level the local big guys played it this week; the best you can say about ti is that only one of three teams lost by 63 points (really: 66-3; I'm dyin' here).

Julia, on the other hand, the Mariners beat the Yankees twice in a three game series, which makes baseball fans everywhere happy.

I keep hearing from folks that the books are good. I need to download a sample on the kindle and see for myself!

I think the one book to TV adaption that's worth its salt is - of course - Anne of Green Gables.

Possibly Little House on the Prairie, but Laura is completely different in the books than on the show, so I take that back. The Stand was a good mini-series?

Does it count that I was secretly addicted to I want to be a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader reality show on CMT? *hides head in shame* :)

Do not be ashamed, little Sheba! For you were watching something based on my beloved Cowboys, so I have no judgment for you. :D

Congrat's on the panel and nominations!

And, while I'm not a huge NFL fan, I must say that your college football enthusiasm is fully appropriate and should be encouraged. Hell, as a woman who grew up in Happy Valley, I'd even say that your post showed much restraint. :D

Thank you!

HAHAHAHAHA - oh my gosh, the football parties at the U and the Y. And I'm from the infamous Red River Shootout locale! I learned a thing or two about pranks while going to the U.

I think the only school rivalry that can match the U vs. the Y is Ohio/Michigan. (But I still kinda think the Utah rivalry is a bigger deal. I mean, it's saints vs. sinners! *G*)

I've been a Cowboys fan since I was a kid. If you have issues with America's Team, take it elsewhere.


Well, certainly now that you've revealed yourself as a satanist...

Awww, poor New Zealand's Very Own Anna Paquin (if you get famous you automatically get New Zealand's Very Own surgically attached to the front of your name, it's law). She's probably been paid a lot of money though, so at least she'll be able to buy eye drops for her dead, dead eyes. And I'm sorry, but if you're going to go the vampire route, they've got to be HAWT, also a law.

But wow, Stoney's Very Own Movie (law) is just going from strength to strength, there's going to be a virtual loot bag of awards by the time that it's done the circuit.

Ha, I knew she wasn't Aussie, I thought she was a Kiwi! I like her, don't get me wrong, she just... it's like she's just phoning it in.

BWEE! Let's hope! That would be awesome - although, the awards we're winning are just a step off of fanfic awards with sparkles and macaroni. :D

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
