We are staying in St Francisville, Louisiana tonight...on our way to New Orleans.
It's beautiful here and we'll be heading out in the morning for haunted and historic plantation homes to tour and to get a little look at Baton Rouge where True Blood is schedule to film some time in the next few months.
So we know we will be back...
We will be in New Orleans tomorrow evening ...
“True Blood” co-stars and real-life romantic partners Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer lunched on the back patio of Gjelina
“True Blood” co-stars and real-life romantic partners Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer lunched on the back patio of Gjelina Tuesday. I’m loathe to share that “news,” given that my favorite new neighborhood joint is crowded enough as it is.
Gjelina, 1429 Abbot Kinney Blvd., 310-450-1429
** there isn't a photo to go along with this sighting- So,I used an old photo of them, it is of them and it is in Venice, CA.
"YOU KNOW how many people are having sex with vampires these days?" The answer to this question, right at this present time, appears to be: quite a few. "Fang-banging", as it is known in some parts of the vampire universe, is everywhere.
There's pale and beautiful Bella and Edward in Twilight, of course. Before that, Buffy kicked some sexy vamp ass, and even earlier the undead Anne Rice gave new life to lustful, etiolated fiends such as Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt and a pre-teen Kirsten Dunst. Then along came the leather glam of Underworld. Kiwis even got in on the desanguination act, with Glenn Standring's flawed but under-appreciated steampunk effort, Perfect Creature. And let's not forget in the newest flood of blood-sucking fiction, the UK TV series Being Human, in which a ghost, a werewolf and a vampire share a house in, of all places, Bristol.
But it was really John Polidori, the doctor of Lord Byron, and Bram Stoker, who in the 19th century kicked off the modern idea of the blood-sucking monster with the biting and the staking and the garlic.
In the new Southern gothic TV series True Blood, where the question is asked and the fang-banging term comes from, vampires have come "out of the coffin" the expression does double work, as we shall see and vampires are living among us. The Japanese those clever people have invented a fake blood vampires can drink, TruBlood, so they don't partake of ours. In the series, based on a sequence of novels by Charlaine Harris, sexy blonde waitress Sookie Stackhouse is in love with the dark and brooding Bill Compton in steamy, spooky Louisiana, all misty bayous, Spanish moss and country and western tunes. She lives with her slow-witted but horndog brother Jason and her grandmother.
