About me: I'm Rob. I'm from Los Angeles and I've been a musician since I can remember. I'm pretty partial to the hard rock genre, but I enjoy elements from all others as well. Like mariachi for example; can you imagine how awesome it would be to plug in a 'Big Muff' distortion pedal to one of those trumpet players? I'm also a regular on the TV show 'True Blood.'

Vampire Bill Says, "Sookie."

Alex- the- girl at 'Please try again' blog writes a very nice review for 'Dead Until Dark '

Since before the days of Bella Lugosi, Vampires have been haunting the dreams of just about every young girl in existence. Infamous, sexy, haunting, and hidden, vampires have stayed in the closet of humanity for thousands of years...


Charlaine Harris has outed the closeted vampire, and thrown them into the night. Due to the development of a synthetic blood, vampires across the nation have publicly come out of the coffin, and ever since, Miss Sookie Stackhouse of Bon Temps, Louisiana has been "dying" to meet one.

In "Dead Until Dark," the first of the southern vampire mystery series written by Charlaine Harris, we find young, beautiful, blonde, but frustratingly single, Sookie Stackhoue. Why single? It appears Miss Stackhouse has a "secret" ability that allows her to hear the thoughts of those around her, and while some might consider this a gift, it makes dating near to impossible. Imagine knowing exactly what your main squeeze was thinking 24/7 including when you're both in the middle of doing the nevermind. Er, yeah, right.

Life for Miss Sookie was as boring and lonely as it could get until one dark mysterious (setting up the ambiance for you) night, when the doors to Merlotte's, a local feed and watering hole where Sookie waitresses, opens and in walks Bill. Vampire Bill. Tall, pale, handsome...the silent kind. Vampire Bill, you had me at hello, and you didn't even say hello. Mr. Bill Compten, a former confederate soldier, has come home to Bon Temps as sole (un)living inheritor of his estate. Aside from his dashing good looks, pearly white teeth, and bodacious sideburns, Miss Sookie's main attraction to Mr. Bill is his brain (snort...yeah...right). It seems that she cannot read his thoughts. Delighted at the silence, Sookie is drawn and captivated by the charming vampire, so it is no surprise when later that night Sookie risks her life to save him from certain death. Bill is later able to return the favor and thus begins the whirlwind of an affair that leads Sookie through a maze of vampire bars, exotic Vikings, Elvis, a stake supper, and a vampire hating serial killer that has Sookie's name written on the top of the "to kill" list.

Photo Gallery: TV's Most Memorable Vampires

From Eoline ( Both Eric and Bill make the photo list)

There's no denying it. Vampires are hot.

Fan fangs are sharp, and audiences are out for blood. Forget the garlic and the holy water, we relish the thought of Bill (Stephen Moyer, True Blood) or Damon (Ian Somerhalder, Vampire Diaries) taking a bite out of us. Even Buffy would put down her wooden stake for these vampire hotties.

But lest we forget, vamps have been making our blood boil for decades. (You vampire die-hards may remember Jonathan Frid as Barnabas Collins in the '60s classic Dark Shadows.)
