True Blood's Anna Paquin wants to return to finish college

Actress ANNA PAQUIN plans to return to school one day - because she regrets not graduating from college.
The True Blood star, 26, enrolled at Columbia University in New York after earning her high school diploma, but quit after just one year to focus on her acting career.
Paquin insists she will go back to Columbia to complete her higher education eventually - even though she has no plans to leave showbusiness.
She tells AOL Television, "I did a year (of college) right after high school, because I was curious to see if there was anything else that made me as passionate... and all it really did was clarify that I was exactly where I wanted to be (acting).
"It was great, and at some point I do intend to go back and finish. (But) this is definitely my arena of jobs - either writing or directing and producing. I love storytelling. It's what I feel passionate about."

Ten reasons to love 'True Blood'

This digital spy UK and they are just now getting the first season!

It may have escaped your notice, but we're getting more than a little excited about True Blood around these parts lately. For the uninitiated, we feel it's time to justify our enthusiasm. Read on for ten reasons why we think you should get a hankering for some True Blood...

1. The concept
True Blood is set in the small town of Bon Temps, Louisiana in the not-too-distant future: a time where vampires have 'come out of the closest' and co-exist, albeit fractiously, with humans. This is possible because of the creation of a synthetic blood alternative called 'TruBlood', a Japanese invention that negates the need for vampires to feast on humans.

2. Anna Paquin
One of the best pieces of casting comes from X-Men's Anna Paquin, who stars in the lead role of waitress Sookie Stackhouse - a part she auditioned for five times. Sookie's meek and mild-mannered on the surface, but don't let that fool you - she's a bit of a minx underneath it all. She also has a very special gift.

3. The love story
Young Sookie gets very excited when Bon Temps gets its first vampiric resident - the menacingly-named Vampire Bill (Paquin's boyfriend Stephen Moyer). He's dark, mysterious - and devilishly handsome. So begins the show's central love story.

4. The sex
This is just another vampire drama, right? Wrong. It's a sexy vamp drama full of, well... sexy vamps. And the show really earns its 10pm timeslot - there's nothing remotely pre-watershed in here! Heading up the bed-hopping shenanigans is resident man-slut Jason Stackhouse - aka Ryan Kwanten - who spends at least more than 50% of his scenes shirtless and/or pantsless.

5. The feisty best friend
Sookie's best friend Tara is bold, brash and ballsy. She has a long-time crush on Sookie's brother Jason but beneath her confident exterior she harbours an abusive homelife.

6. Lafayette
The local gossip/burger-flipper/shady businessman is overlooked in the first couple of episodes, but when his dark side surfaces, he becomes much more integral to the action. Look out for some extremely dodgy dealings and killer one-liners.

7. The violence
Sex? Check. Fangs? Check. Violence? Absolutely! What vampire series would be complete without a fair few seductively aggressive scenes? When blood is shed, it's either during the throes of passion (after a cheeky vamp bite) or in the midst of a revenge-driven fist fight.

8. Alan Ball
True Blood is adapted from the Charlaine Harris novels by Alan Ball, creator of Six Feet Under and Oscar-winner American Beauty. In the States it airs on premium network HBO, which is known for its quality output.

9. The future
The show is already well into its second season in the US, but there's lots to look forward to in the first season, including a murder mystery, a shock slaying - and an unwelcome demonic intrusion.

10. The timeslot
What better excuse to save some dollar and avoid the weekend's alcohol-induced antics? Finally, Friday nights really are worth staying in for!

mindfulmusic78 says : Inspired by the HBO vampire series Trueblood!

Nocturnal animals,my children of the moon
Hunters and cannibals,craving that sweet blood
Don't want to be alone,when your walking home
Cause they're coming out tonight x2
Witches casting voodoo,she'll put in her spell
One glass of Trueblood,could never quench this thirst of mine
Don't put me in the looney bin,I'll never make it out alive

And I don't think I 'll ever see the the sun
Starlights the only light I know
that's ok that's just how it goes
Your love for me is all I crave
Without you in my world,well
I'd rather die agian.......

Top 26 Vampire Movies

From Hecklerspray
We've seen lots of lists of Vampire movies but the top 26 ? Ha ! Nope, so enjoy and each one has a video to watch.

Why do we love vampire movies so much?

Vampires are essentially pale, scary-looking monsters who dress in black and drain the life-force out of anyone who crosses their path. Maybe Hollywood should make a movie about emo lawyers or tax inspectors. Should go down a scream at the box office.

Anyway, the point is we love vampires. Can’t get enough of them.

They can be sexy (Queen of the Damned, Twilight, From Dusk Till Dawn), funny (Lost Boys, Fearless Vampire Killers), scary (Nosferatu) and, of course, plain ridiculous (that’ll be Twilight again, Blacula, Jesus Christ: Vampire Hunter).

But which vampire film has the most bite? Well, taking into account that Twilight 2 has got teenage girls all around the world frothing at the mouth, we have decided to come up with some real vampire movies worth seeing.
