It's been so long since I updated, that I am literally unfamiliar with the layout of this site. I'm such a flake. Although in honesty, I don't think it matters much; I don't have anything important to say anyway, so really this is just for my own benefit.
When Trueblood first came out, I have to admit that I watched the first several episodes, and then didn't bother with the rest. It was a combination of the hassle of having to find them online, and in good quality. Somehow I just didn't feel up to the bother of it. I'm starting to think though, that maybe my judgment was a little hasty. I've started reading the Sookie Stackhouse Novels, and I have to admit that they're pretty damn good. It makes me want to give the show a second try. I know for a fact that my boyfriend really likes the series, and is even willing to re-watch the first seasons with me. That's an unprecedented occurence; he hates re-watching anything.
I recently watched a really obscure movie about hoodoo that was completely excellent. It stars Kate Hudson as well as Gena Rowlands, John Hurt, Joy Bryant, and Peter Sarsgaard. The cast is, perhaps, not the creme de la creme of actors, but is prestigious enough that I'm surprised that I'd never heard of it before. The movie came out 5 or 6 years ago, and I'd never heard it mentioned until I made an attempt to do some Wikipedia research on the subject of hoodoo, which is a collection of superstitions, and pseudo-religious practices based on religions such as West African and Hatian Vodun and Santeria. Or is at least related to them. Coincidentally, it turns out that Eric Kripke and the writers of Supernatural do their homework. So brownie points for them.
I have a friend who recently discovered Lady Gaga, and I feel kind of bad for being amused about her complete horror in regard to the Alejandro music video. As much as I was disturbed to see men in bowl cuts running around in high-heels, and a woman with an AK-47 bra, I like to think that I didn't react this violently to the somewhat hallucinogenic imagery. The somewhat state-ist portion of my personality hopes that everyone from Texas is this easily upset. Not that I'd want to upset them. That would make me a troll.
