Across the Universe -WIKI
Across the Universe-IMDb
An original musical film, Across The Universe is a fictional love story set in the 1960s amid the turbulent years of anti-war protest, the struggle for free speech and civil rights, mind exploration and rock and roll. At once gritty, whimsical and highly theatrical, the story moves from high schools and universities in Massachusetts, Princeton and Ohio to the Lower East Side of Manhattan, the Detroit riots, Vietnam and the dockyards of Liverpool. A combination of live action and animation, the film is paired with many songs by The Beatles that defined the time

True Blood goes to the Movies: 'Across the Universe' starring Evan Rachel ( Sophie- Anne LeClerq) Woods
'Across the Universe' starring as Lucy, True Blood's Queen Sophie- Anne LeClerq ( it's a spectacular movie -if you haven't see it)
Now that Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer are engaged, will the producers take advantage of their natural real-life engagement experiences and write a vampire-telepath wedding into the show?
If they choose to do so, here are some possible locations for the (nighttime) wedding reception:
Merlotte’s - This is the natural choice as it’s the most popular gathering place in town, although Sam might have something to say about Sookie getting married and his bar. However, with the way things are looking, will Sam even be around much longer?
Sookie’s House -Definitely the sentimental choice. Grams won’t be able to attend, but holding the wedding and reception at her house would be special for Sookie.
One of Maryanne’s Outdoor “Parties” -OK, you can’t deny that the lady knows how to throw a party. Of course there would have to be some ground rules: no turning everyone’s eyes black, no fights and keep the orgies to a minimum (at least until after the cake is cut).
Fangtasia - Destination wedding in New Orleans? They’ve definitely got the open bar factor going for them. They could even convert the dungeon downstairs into a dance floor.
Fellowship of the Sun Church - Yea, this one’s a longshot.
Any other suggestions? Post your ideas on where Sookie and Bill could hold their wedding reception below!

A new episode of True Blood is on this Sunday night. And to whet your appetite we've got an exclusive interview with Carrie Preston, who plays Bon Temps' pie-slinging skeptic Arlene. I chatted with Carrie at this year's Saturn Awards, at which her husband Michael Emerson was nominated for Best Supporting Actor in Television for his role as Ben Linus on Lost. Preston told me what to expect this season from True Blood, what direction she'd like Arlene's love life to take, and what differences she sees between Lost and True Blood fans. Hit the jump to read what she had to say.
True Blood has become quite a phenomenon in just a short time.
Yeah! I'm so excited.
What can you say about this season?
You've probably seen the first two already and you can tell the show is definitely a departure from the books already. The second book was completely different than the series. I mean, Lafayette was supposed to be dead and the second book was about finding his killers, so already we're kind of departing from that. But the show really established itself in the first season and I think now it feels very free and able to kind of go to new places. There are new supernatural characters introduced; we're going to be going places that you don't expect, that certainly our characters don't expect. Alan Ball even sat us down in our table read for the very first episode and said, "You guys are going to be doing things that you aren't going to believe and if you have any problems just come and talk to us." It's true. We've done some crazy things this season.
Check out these first look pics of Even Rachel Wood in True Blood as Vampire Queen of Louisiana, Queen Sophie-Ann.
“Nobody’s ever entirely happy to see her [character]” series creator Alan Ball tells EW. “She’s very powerful, capricious and most likely insane. [She] has more than one secret agenda, which we will slowly become aware of over season 3.”

Twitter, Facebook and LiveJournal spent yesterday battling a DDOS attack that started around 6 am California time. Twitter and LiveJournal went down hard, Facebook stayed mostly online but was clearly under strain. CNET reports that a single individual's accounts on the services may have been the primary target.
Now, nearly 24 hours later, Facebook and LiveJournal appear to be performing normally. But Twitter is down completely and has been for the last few hours.
As of 4 pm Twitter was saying things were looking better: "Site latency has continued to improve." But for most users, all third party services have been completely unusable for the last 20 hours or so (Tweetdeck, Seesmic, Power Twitter, etc..), bringing down the entire Twitter ecosystem. The Twitter.com site itself hasn't been reliable either.
The Twitter status blog has been silent since that 4:14 update.
Is Twitter Down?

Actress and musician Lindsey Haun will be joining the True Blood cast for a few episodes later this season.You might recognize her–she’s done lots of TV work in the past–but I’d be shocked to hear it.
Regardless, she’s quite pumped to do her thing on TB. Here’s what it says on the Lindsey Haun MySpace page:
“Sooooo… our guitar player, Sarah Carter, was on episode 2 of this season, season 2, with her other band Rocket!! The episode is called “Get This Party Started” and Rocket is the back up band for the Christian rock singer chick. it’s pretty funny… and kinda wrong actually… in a good way. But wait there’s more!!! I, Lindsey Haun, will be on the last 2 episodes of the season! well actually, technically, 3.
Charlaine Harris is pretty much everywhere these days. The author of the Sookie Stackhouse series, which HBO is basing its "True Blood" shows on, is working on her 10th Sookie book (due May 2010) and keeping an eye on the TV show.
Q . Do you think Eric (the powerful vampire and love interest in the book) has grown because of his relationship with Sookie, who is human?
A. I think parts of Eric have surfaced that he thought were buried for good.
Q. What will it take for Sookie to understand the blood bond? It seems as if she is losing her ability to distinguish between her own feelings, Eric's feelings and those generated by the blood bond.
A. This is an issue in the next book.
Q. How would you compare the strengths between the bonds of vampire and sire, a vampire and his/her king or queen, and a vampire and his/her sheriff?
A. The vampire/sire relationship is the strongest.
Q . In one podcast interview, you said you didn't see Sookie turning into a vampire or even winding up with one – in the sense that she would lead a normal life and be with a human. Do you still think she will be able to do that – settle with one person? Not a vampire?
A. I said that Sookie will never become a vampire. And a vampire can't give her what she's always thought she wanted; a regular marriage with children. But that doesn't mean Sookie will end up with exactly what she wants. I see no reason why she couldn't settle with one person.
Q. What did you want readers to take away from "Dead and Gone"?
A. I don't know that I had a specific goal; I had several themes, though. The ruthlessness and inhumanity of the fae, the outrages we commit in the name of love, and the loneliness of those who simply can't fit in and are doomed by their own nature . . . those were all elements of the book.
Q. Do you have a good idea of how the series will eventually end? If so -- have you ever changed your mind about the ending?
A. I do know how the series will end. And I have never changed my mind.
Q. Tell us a little bit about your cameo at the end of season 2.
A. I'm sitting in Merlotte's at the bar talking to Sam. I'm wearing a striped shirt. I have a line. I almost hope they cut it. I'm not an actor.
Q. Alan Ball has certainly developed the HBO show differently from the books. Does his vision of the show make you think about how you're writing your current book? Have you ever gotten an idea from the show to build on in the book series?
A. I keep them separate in my mind. The book characters have been living with me for a long, long time.
If you like "True Blood," you'll find "Being Human" a treat of the dark kind. This BBC America show takes some of the same themes as "True Blood," but of course, spins them with British flair. CatScott, who loves "True Blood," breaks it down:
CatScott: A vampire, werewolf and ghost walk into a pub. If you're waiting for the punch line, there isn't one. This particular scene is straight out of BBC America's new summer dramedy "Being Human." With only six episodes in the entire season, there's a lot of story packed into each 60 minutes.
"Being Human," a wonderfully written paranormal show, asks what being human means. Does humanity end with the changing of DNA? Do you lose your humanity simply because you've died? Is humanity something to be regained if lost?
Mitchell, a vampire not by choice but by bargain; George, a werewolf after an unfortunate vacation in Scotland; and Annie, a very lonely ghost only the boys can see, all long for what they can't have: their humanity.
Each has a hard time coping with life, or death, as they know it. They reach out to each other during each of their dark moments. They create a family out of necessity and understanding.
Speaking to MTV News before he went inside EW’s Comic-Con party (and danced!), Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon discussed the Twilight phenomenon and who would win in a fight: Angel (David Boreanaz) or Edward (Robert Pattinson). Of course, you’re gonna play the recently-posted video below to hear Whedon’s answer, since he sounds so… Joss, but in case you’re in a rush: Whedon says he thought he’d be laughed out of the room when he created the character of Angel, a vampire with a soul who romances a slayer, but clearly he was wrong. Of the vampire-human love connection, he says, “There’s something really timeless about it. I saw Twilight, I was like [pretends to be breathless] ‘She loves him so much!’ There’s something primal about that story. You can’t get away from it, and it just works like gangbusters. I love it.”

Sookie’s captivity takes an unexpected turn when Eric arrives to do his master’s bidding on the eve of the Fellowship’s lockdown. In Bon Temps, Sam finds himself in hot water after making a gruesome discovery at Merlotte’s, and Andy proves no help in coming to his defense. Sent home by Bill, Jessica and Hoyt learn that when it comes to sex, every time is the first time. Tara and Eggs devour a mysterious meal prepared by Maryann, with unexpected results. After Jason pays off his debt to the vampires, Godric looks to enlighten his more single-minded followers.
I would say you can say " all" vampires - every vampire author or film maker has their own take on vampires. Some are more sympathetic and still hold on to human mores and semblance of feelings and some are just monsters. Some even in some vampire worlds are in league with Satan or evil forces ..soo
Wait, it's awfully early to be thinking so seriously ..what do you think ? I think the new Korean Film "Thirst" is about a priest turned to vampire. It opens this weekend. HERE
[Does God Hate Vampires?] Last night I watched my favorite television show, TrueBlood. It chronicles a waitress named Sookie Stackhouse and what happens when she starts dating a one hundred plus year old vampire named Bill Compton, but what got me thinking, though, is about the opposition that they face from a church-based organization called the Fellowship of the Sun. If Sookie and Bill's relationship was a reality and this organization did exist what side would Christians be on? Would we take the extremist approach, like the Newlins and the Fellowship of the Sun, continually leading a hunt for vampires or would we be like Jesus and embrace their undead nature?
It is true that we can choose to do good or evil deeds. God gave us free will and with that comes decision making. Can't the same be said for vampires? Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) constantly chooses right over wrong. Bill drinks synthetic blood as opposed to feeding off the living and if he does feed, it is from a willing party which he leaves alive. Of course there are vampires in his world that willingly choose to kill for sport. They are the crueler, more evil of the species and Bill chooses to isolate himself from them.
But back to my question, does God hate vampires? Here's my theory. I think that God would not hate vampires for three reasons: 1) some are turned unwillingly 2) they're like the lepers of society 3) they were God's creations first. Bill was one of the undoubtedly unwilling humans turned vampire. In fact, he just recently was forced into turning a young teenager into a vampire against her will and he knows how much she hates being dead. If so many vampires are turned against their will then why would God hate them?
