Loving True Blood Blog and Talk Blood Radio show/ podcast raffle and fundraiser

**please help **
I was hesitant to do this this year and have to do all the extra work of trying to raise the money to keep the radio show on the air - I need 3 more episode sponsors and have tons of raffle prizes! 

Please buy a $20 raffle ticket (each ) and help us pay the costs of running the blog and producing the radio show this year. I have created a very sensible budget for this year and am raising the money through Talk Blood episode sponsorships and the raffle. It is the only way I can keep this all going, we ain't there yet so please help...

Your chances of receiving a prize are astoundingly good and we have wonderful items like:  autographed Sookie books by Charlaine Harris, True Blood collectors grab bags, an original signed Andy Swist ( Yes, as in the True Blood paper dolls ) wonderful portrait of Eric & Sookie, True Blood collectors poster ( one of a kind !) more books, and various other gift certificates and other goodies from some of our sponsors!

But best of all you know you helped keep your favorite True Blood Blog or radio show going for another year!

Thanks, Dallas

Also if you have a prize you'd like to donate email me
Sponsor an episode $50 , you can promote your business etc on the show and on the blog. Email me for more info.

Joe Manganiello: You're Gonna See Werewolf Sex

Joe Manganiello (Alcide) says going to fairyland may have been the worst real estate decision Sookie’s ever made.

“I really do believe — and some of the producers and writers agree with me — if Sookie didn't disappear, Alcide would've built that house for her,” he tells NY Mag.

“As you can see in episode three, Alcide is obviously worried. The way the door was answered, he wanted to kiss her! Being a werewolf, he's had to stomp on a lot of his impulses. All I can say is when anybody continually stomps on impulses, there's going to be a reaction. What's amazing this season is that you see those emotions and physical reactions.”

True Blood's Joe Manganiello On An Alcide-Sookie Hook-Up, Werenudity, and Working Out

On True Blood, Joe Manganiello's character, Alcide Herveaux, is a sensitive outsider with massive biceps and considerable girl troubles. Turns out they have so much in common: In real life, the actor has likewise been a sensitive outsider with massive biceps and considerable girl troubles! Vulture caught up with this easygoing tall drink of werewolf just after he finished filming season four of True Blood. In addition to giggling about the nudity, we discussed his hopes for an Alcide-Sookie hook-up, as well as his sundry extracurricular activities this summer: eating fried chicken, making his muscles more muscle-y, and hitting the karaoke bar.
What's the first thing you cheat-eat when you finish filming True Blood?
Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles! [Somberly] But I'm actually cast in a project right now [What to Expect When You’re Expecting, playing a studly photographer opposite Cameron Diaz and Jennifer Lopez], so it looks like I have to train for it.

5 Best French Vampire Movies

These are available from Amazon and I'm sure through Netflix

Best known for being horror movies, these 5 best French vampire movies prove that the French can do horror. If you like bloodsuckers, these movies will excite and terrify you. No one does suspense like the Europeans, who take it just a little farther than film-makers in Hollywood do.

  1. Nosferatu the Vampyre. Produced in 1979, this vampire film casts the age-old character of Count Dracula. The Count, looking for a house in the Black Sea port town of Virna, becomes infatuated with his real-estate agent’s wife. He moves to Virna and releases his terror on the town. Interestingly, this film depicts Dracula as feeling burdened by his curse of immortality.
  2. The Rape of the Vampire. Director Jean Rollin made this vampire flick in 1968. A low budget production, the film feels slightly surreal and carries erotic overtones. As therapist tries to convince four sisters that they are not in fact ancient vampires, the disembodied voice that controls the sisters’ actions is proven to exist. Medical researched struggles to create a cure for vampirism and, ultimately, the Queen of Vampires shows up to state her case.

Warners to adapt 'A Discovery of Witches' Deborah Harkness novel pits vampires against sorcerers in interspecies war

Warner Bros. is looking for witches and vampires, buying feature rights to adapt Deborah Harkness' "A Discovery of Witches" and setting the project with Denise Di Novi and Allison Greenspan.
The story centers on a reluctant witch and a 1,500-year-old vampire. The witch -- a direct descendant of the first woman executed in the Salem Witch trials -- accidentally unlocks an enchanted manuscript and finds herself in a race to prevent an interspecies war.
Harkness, a professor of history at USC, is writing the story as a trilogy and the second novel, "Shadow of Night," will be published by next year.
