"It's a really, really cool thing to be able to show people that you can be yourself, and you should be proud of yourself, and you should own who you are and what you're about, and never make apologies for it."
...finally blogging....eh. Not in a real tv.com mood as of late. It's quiet here, somewhat empty, new episodes aren't back yet so there isn't that much to talk about but I haven't blogged in quiet awhile so...
Though not my fault. Back in July my ancient dell finally pooped out for good and eventually bought a new one. Since then just haven't really felt like blogging. Work was finishing now going back to school, plus I need to find a new job but still it's not that I'm more busy it's just this place is not the same and like I said I'm just in a not so into tv.com phase. It happens.
Other things are blocking the view like......
(Not all Adam, don't worry) The new album doesn't drop till November but of course I'm practically having stroke of anticipation, it's also confirmed that Adam has/will be recording a song for the new apocalyptic disaster movie 2012. So yay! I could care less about the movie itself but any Adam tid bits I can come by are FABULOUS!
Speaking of fabulous, tour vid! These are fan shot vid of Adam on tour that I just love, quality is not 100% but it's pretty good considering. I have quite a few favorited on youtube but I'll only include a couple, don't wanna OD you guys. Oh wait to late!
This first one is Adam doing his Bowie Medley, that's right Bowie baby, love it. The second is the same thing but it's much better quality both vid and sound.
Seriously I can not get enough of him! I need AA. Adam-holics Anonymous.
Okay, okay enough I know.
*Little blurb lost my Top 25 character list and to be honest I don't feel like going through the ordeal of putting it back together. It'll take far to long so that'll just have to be one list I don't finish.*
Expanded my dvd collection a bit. Finally bought season 3 of Dawson's Creek (been on my list forever) and the first three seasons of Bones. Super psyched for season 3 of Heroesto get here in a couple weeks! And I have a couple things to pre-order soon Bones season 4, The Tudors season 3 and of course Star Trek.
2009/2010 tv season (don't worry I'll keep it pretty short!): Feeling unsure about this years season. Heroes, well you all know by now how I feel about Sylar/Nathan and I'm just a little worried this volume is going to be making some big mistakes. Impossible to know but I read spoilers and so far I'm not overly impressed with anything and some of the upcoming stories seem...well like big mistakes. Bones looks great though! After last years very uneven season (everything from fantastic episode to bottom of barrel episodes) I think the show is finally taking some momentum with Bones/Booth. Thank god! Don't get me wrong I love that they've never been handled like most every other tv couple is handled (particularly the will they-won't they brand). But after the major sex cop out in the season finale I am so glad they're actually moving forward with them. We clearly probably won't get a resolution till the season 6 finale but as I said they never treat B/B like a traditioonal tv couple so maybe a surprise will be in store?No not a baby, I doubt they'll ever do that. I also heard tha they're finally listening to fan out cry and making the supporting players a little more involved. House looks like it's finally bouncing back after two really weird seasons, more so season 5. I just hope they honestly commit to this House mental institution thing because it's just what the show needs to sort of reinvent itself and feel new again like new seasons should. The Office has plenty to be happy about (JAM wedding and baby) so enough said. However last season of The Office followed suit with Heroes and Bones. Very uneven seasons, back and forth between great and bad episodes so I just really really want this year to be a bit more cohesive. I mean fingers crossed but I'm not an unrealistic fan. I don't expect every season, heck every episode to be oscar worthy I just want things a bit more even this time around.
Speaking of tv True Blood hit a major bounce back for me. I had altogether given up on the show when episode 5 aired and they introduced us to Godric. Jaw hit floor. As a vampire fan since childhood I was totally entranced by him and we only got to see him in one scene in that episode! They finally actually introduced him in episode 7/8 and wow.
Not only did he rival Eric as a fantastic vampire and maybe one of the best characters of the series but he breathed new life into the show in more ways then one. What he brought out in Eric alone would have been enough to make me love him (he gave Eric a lot of great scenes even when Godric himself wasn't actually in them). The final scene between them on the roof brought me to tears, it was so intense and of course sad. Both actors (Alexander and Allan) were great. I adore what they're doing with Eric's character, keeping him teetering on the edge between monster and man as opposed to last season when more then anything he was just an off set to Bill's good guy routine.
But back to Godric I so wish we had a little more time with him considering he's the oldest vampire we have yet to meet and we really only got three episodes with him. I realize that was half the point, to make his death that much sadder and keep a little mystery surrounding his character, life and also history with Eric (a large portion of brining him onto the show was to help flesh out Eric more and help us to get to know him outside of this Sookie/Bill weirdness) but I don't think one or two more episodes would have killed that? If nothing else I sincerely hope they give us flashbacks, they certainly have more then enough time to work with. Now for my favorite Godric scenes.
Why would you be so cruel? (S2, E9)-This is the clip of Godric and Eric's last scene but also Godric's last moments on the show. I must have watched this scene 50 times by now. I had to share it with you guys, for anyone who has jumped from True Blood I suggest you watch episodes 8 and 9. They are so worth it. This scene alone, easily the best six minutes or so that the show has ever done.
I'm here my child (S2, EP 8}- Godric and Eric are reunited. Loved this scene! Short but fantastic. Enough said. :)
Godric is my maker (S2, EP5) - This is the scene where Godric sires Eric. Very Anne Rice, Allan Hyde is enthralling in this scene and they make him look perfect. Animalistic yet surprisingly innocent. The tattoos are a nice touch. Can't describe how perfectly I think they cast Godric as well. Allan's very young and yet he somehow embodied both the innocenct and old soul qualities Godric needed to come off as legit.
There is nothing to say (S2, EP 9)- Godric gets in trouble with Nan and fired as sheriff of area 9. Godric looks so pained throughout this entire scene and the look on Eric's face just about breaks my heart. Alexander and Allan play off one another well in this scene, their conversation feels incrediblely sad even though at that point in the episode it isn't toally clear wasn't happening. When the audience isn't totally up to speed it can be hard to convey the right emotion but they nail it.
I'm actually older then your Jesus (S2, EP 8}- Godric tries to reason with the fellowship of the sun. This scene was shot perfectly. I love how they placed Godric, the fact that it was in a church made it look surreal. Great dialogue.
Now what would that have proven? (S2, EP 8}- Godric and Eric discuss some things.This conversation really summed up Godric. Who knows what kind of vampire he was back in his younger years but he's clearly more like Bill now, enlightened when it comes to humans. Realistic about what vampires are, the last person in the world I ever expected to be Eric's sire.
I have a question for anyone who reads the Sookie Stackhouse novels, obviously they deal with lots of supernatural things/creatures. Do they have resurrections? :D
