Revealing Guest DJ Set by “True Blood’s” Alexander Skarsgard Includes Song Dedications to Past Loves & Family Alexander Skarsgard, who plays the powerful vampire Eric on HBO’s hit series “True Blood,” dedicated the five songs in his Guest DJ Project set on Santa Monica-based public radio station KCRW to people that play or have played an important part in his life, including; a love from his past, his parents, a childhood friend, and his adopted home of Los Angeles.

Skarsgard tells a heart tugging story about singing the Rolling Stones’ “Mother’s Little Helper” with his father, actor Stellan Skarsgard, at their country house in Sweden and admits his love for his mom’s favorite song – Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl” – even though he pretended not to like it as a kid.

The set is available streaming, for download and as a podcast. You can hear all of his picks (and read the transcript) on here:

The actor exposes his teenage punk past, dedicating a track by famed Swedish band Ebba Grön to an ailing childhood friend. “This was in the early 90's and it was like 15 years after it was cool to be a punk rocker. Every day after school I would bring my boombox out to this park and I would sit there with my friends singing and watch the sunset and listen to loud, angry, fast music.”The most revealing moment of his Guest DJ set was the dedication of the Buzzcock’s “Ever Fallen in Love” to a past girlfriend and their stormy relationship:

“I had this girlfriend awhile ago, many years ago, and it was a very passionate relationship. I was very much in love with this girl, but after a few months we both realized we weren't good for each other. But it was one of those relationships that we didn't make each other happy, but every time we broke up, we ended up back together and that went on for almost 3 years.
I don't know if you've experienced that, but it just killed me. It was really, really tough. I just tried to move on and so did she but we just couldn't. I want to dedicate this song to her and I hope she found happiness somewhere out there. “ “Every time after a fight I would just put on my big headphones and I would crank up the volume and go ‘Pete Shelley freakin’ gets it!’

In a way, she will always be a part of me, but I don't have to listen to Buzzcocks and cry every day and night anymore. I can actually listen to it now and enjoy it because it's a great song.”
Skarsgard also didn’t skip a beat in responding a question about vampire Eric’s musical taste.
The answer: Swedish death metal.

True Blood Season 2 Video Promo long version

Thanks God HBO finally got up the full version- Ace showbiz writes a little about it . Gotta say this almost equals the pre- season "Beyond here " promo - it's just excellent.

With only one more episode left in the second season, "" is airing a teaser which utilizes 's "Corrupt". The teaser for the season 2 finale was played on Sunday night without the band but HBOhas since released a longer version online that includes scenes of the band recording the song.

The "True Blood" scenes are those from the title while the glimpses of the band are cut from the "Studio Sessions" featurette on the "" box set. "Universe" is the twelfth studio album from the rock band which was released back on April 20, and "Corrupt" is the song that never got out as an individual sale.

The teaser is also aimed to promote HBO on Demand which has made available all the episodes from season 1 and 2 except for the upcoming September 13 episode.

Easy to be Team Eric on 'True Blood'

Test Pattern from MSNBC

Has there been a show more fun than this season’s “True Blood”? It reminds me how ponderous some of my other favorite dramas can get. Meanwhile, Jason Stackhouse is trying to figure out if Sam could turn into a chicken and lay and eat his own eggs. He also questioned Sam’s sexual behavior as a dog. As I giggled watching him, I realized how much I had missed having a show that was pure daffy fun. Not since “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” which got rather heavy-handed in its later seasons, has there been a show that reveled so much in its own silliness.

This season was even better than the first. The rise of Eric to lead character status was a savvy move. I’m certainly on Team Eric these days. Bill, who was such a dangerous character in season 1, now seems positively stately and safe compared to Eric. Is it wrong to want Eric and Sookie to end up in bed together?

Vampire Corn Mazes

OK, when there is a True Blood Corn maze I will officially think we've really jumped the Sook( shark)

The Twilight sequel, New Moon, doesn’t hit theaters until November, but that hasn’t stopped Utah from cutting cornfields into a Twilight maze in honor of the new movie.

Black Island Farms, Utah, has dedicated 24 acres of land to the Twilight maze, which is perhaps just a physically-large marketing ploy. Consisting of two separate maze patterns, Team Edward and Team Jacob, it lets screaming girls get lost in the hair and face of their favorite vampire (maybe they’ll stay there?).


it's soon going to be 09:09 cst on 09/09/09.....just thought that was cool
