“My career was out on cinderblocks in the front yard when [True Blood] happened,” Everett, a Nashville-based singer-songwriter, said.
Everett’s song “Bad Things” carries the opening credits of the HBO hit show that stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer.
For Everett, “True Blood” has done more than give him airtime.
“It gave me confidence,” he said. That confidence began before the show even aired, influencing his 2009 album “Red Revelations.”
“We knew that “True Blood” was going to happen, so [with “Red Revelations”] we did that swampy sound,” Everett said. “I love that kind of music.”
It’s important to note Everett’s love for the music he is able to create today. He hasn’t always had that luxury
With so much loving going around for vampires, this collected edition was kind of inevitable: at No. 1 on the hardcover list this week is the first volume of the “Vampirella Archives,” published by Dynamite Entertainment. The earliest adventures of Vampirella, a good creature of the night who combats evil bloodsuckers, are contained within and date back to 1969. Her very first cover was by Frank Frazetta and the writers and artists who chronicled her stories are the best of the best: Archie Goodwin, Bernie Wrightson, Wally Wood, Neal Adams and more.

ausiello drops this little nugget
Question: Your True Blood spoiler from last week about Jason is torturing me. Any other details about his big risqué scene? —Stephen
Ausiello: At the Globes, Ryan Kwanten said the sequence in question elicited an “audible gasp at the table read… and for our actors to be shocked at anything is a big deal.” Remember: This has the potential to be as shocking, if not more, than last season’s head-spinning sexscapade between Lorena and Bill. Hmmm…
Question: Enough about Eric/Sookie or Bill/Sookie. Tell me something about True Blood‘s hottest duo, Alcide/Sookie. —Suzan
Ausiello: I’m 87 percent certain that there will be an Alkie (or is it Soocide?) kiss within the first six episodes of Season 4. (The margin of error is +/- 4.9 percent, so you can pretty much take this to the bank.)

Dallas has loved both season of Being Human UK and now I LOVE the new Syfy Being Human US
The monster rules keep changing. Every few months, it seems, a new movie or TV show comes out and tweaks the unnatural laws of horror fiction. On HBO’s “True Blood,” for example, vampires can subsist on artificial blood and are living openly in human society. In the “Underworld” movies, vampires and werewolves wage eternal war against each other.
Syfy’s new series “Being Human,” as its title suggests, concentrates on its monsters’ humanity instead of trying to create a complex mythology around them. Based on the British series of the same name, the show deftly blends drama, horror and comedy. Viewers will be surprised at how involved they become in a subject that seemingly had been sucked dry.
Being Human UK s3 starts later this month http://www.bbc.co.uk/beinghuman/
Being Human US continues next Monday http://www.syfy.com/beinghuman/
