True Blood Season 2: Blood Copy Contest

May 29, 2009

blood-copy-contestThe Blood Copy Team is running a new promotion on their website where one lucky readers can win a “blood-red iPod nano” if you can guess from six photos which one is the vampire.  Just leave a comment and your guess as to who do you think is the vampire at their e-mail address.  So do you think you can spot a vampire from a mile away (well it would be night time so maybe a few feet away).   Are you going to go with the stereotypical idea of what a vampire looks like or use some other method to make your guess. Just remember vampires have been around for centuries and it is only recently that they revealed themselves to us.  Up to that point in time you could have been rubbing shoulders with a vampire and never knew it. So don’t be too quick to judge and it goes to show that you have to change the way you think otherwise you might end up saying something offensive to a vampire and may not know it or live to tell about it.  Check out the Blood Copy contest

True Blood Season 2: Blood Copy Warns About V

May 28, 2009

blood-copy-say-no-to-vVampire Andrew mentions on his Blood Copy blog that he was watching his favorite show “Real Nest” a sort of vampire version of “Real World” when he saw a public announcement ad against using V.  The video feature a real bloodhead who is hooked on V and the horrible side effects from it.  V is very powerful stuff that can make you addicted to it just after one try so it is best not to try it.  As Vampire Andrew says vampire blood should stay in their bodies and not be taken by humans but realizes the contradiction of this statement since vampires drink human blood, well not anymore.  Go over to his Blood Copy blog and watch the video and see the horrible effect of becoming a bloodhead.

Interview with True Blood William Sanderson: Being Sheriff Bud Dearborne

May 28, 2009

william-sanderson-sheriff-bud-dearborneR.J. Carter from the-trades.com had the opportunity to speak with William Sanderson recently and presents his interview here which you can read further on his website at www.the-trades.com.

Interview: William Sanderson: Soft-Spoken Sheriff of True Blood‘s Bon Temps by R.J. Carter

William Sanderson is like the bell pepper in the gumbo. He may not be the crawfish or the crab or the andouille, but the mix is made all the better for his presence; he’s the familiar face from shows like “Lonesome Dove” and “Blade Runner” — not to mention his unforgettable role on Newhart and his trademarked line, “Hi. I’m Larry. This is my brother Daryl, and this is my other brother Daryl.”

These days Sanderson is enforcing the law in the HBO hit series, True Blood. As Sheriff Bud Dearborne, he’s a plainspoken, grounded southern gentleman — much like Sanderson himself. The catch: in the town of Bon Temps, Louisiana, the latest minority group is starting to make itself known: vampires.

True Blood is set, by author Charlaine Harris, in the deep south, and at it’s core is a tale of intolerance. There’s a new minority in the world, that being the vampires, and on one level the story is about violent discrimination against them. Speaking as an Arkansas boy to a Tennessee gentleman, why do those kind of stories have to be set in the south? Haven’t we grown past that?

That is a great question. The author lives in Arkansas, and she went to college in my home town. I think for years show business has depicted southerners as stupid or provincial — and I guess I’ve benefited a little, but… it’s a tough question: “Why?” I don’t think the south has any monopoly on narrow-mindedness. Maybe we’re easy targets. I’ve realized I’m not that smart, but I did get a law degree, and I think I have average intelligence for an actor — but it raises questions about it to even pursue a career as an actor, though, so…

Throughout the first season of True Blood, your character — though we didn’t see an awful lot of him — seemed to evolve from a character a bit like your “Larry” character in Newhart, to someone who’s a lot more wise and competent than we were first led to believe. Was there talk of developing the character as the season wore on?

I’m grateful for the time I got on it, and not to be arrogant but I’m keeping the money. I think the second season will even be better with some new vampires and more craziness, if you will.

But, no, that was all on a need to know basis, and I’m still learning. When I get to work with Alan Ball, the creator, I really try to be a sponge, but, for me it was a thrill to play what was — at least ostensibly — a normal person: I’m clean shaven and I don’t wear dirty clothes. But if you read the books, there’s not a lot on Sheriff Dearborne, but people have told me he’s a voice of reason (and that’s another irony with me). But it’s fun to play a normal person.

True Blood Season 2: Spoilers with Alexander Skarsgard, Sookie, Maryann and Ashley Jones

May 28, 2009

true-blood-season-2-maryann-party2Latest True Blood Season 2 spoiler news featuring tidbits about Alexander Skarsgard‘s character Eric Northman, Sookie Stackhouse, Maryann and Ashley Jones who plays Daphne.   These spoiler tidbits come from Michael Ausiello at ausiellofiles.ew.com who answers a readers question about Alan Ball‘s hit HBO TV series True Blood which returns for Season 2 on Sunday, June 14, 2009 at 9PM/ET on HBO.  Instead of rewriting it let me present it to you it its original content so no changes occurs in the interpretation.

Question: Since you’ve seen the first four True Blood episodes of season 2, is there anything you can share? — Sanna
Ausiello:
They’re bloody fangtastic! (Never. Gets. Old.) Seriously, season 2 — premiering June 14 — gets off to a thrilling, gory, scary, sexy, disgusting, funny, suspenseful start. Alan Ball would drive a wooden stake through my heart if I spoiled any of the big twists (i.e. my lips are sealed about the fate of a certain flamboyant vampire blood dealer), but here are a few juicy morsels to whet your appetite:

•    There are three orgies, all of them powered by Maryann‘s (Michelle Forbes) aphrodisiac fairy dust.
•    Alexander Skarsgard‘s Nordic vamp has an extremely homoerotic encounter with a character who shall remain nameless. In related news, there are about two dozen gratuitous shirtless shots in the first four episodes, all of them belonging to either Mechad Brooks (Tara’s new BF, Eggs) or Ryan Kwanten (Jason).
•    Sookie has a very revealing conversation with a new character in episode 4.
•    If you’re wondering what secret Merlotte’s newest waitress (played by Ashley Jones) is harboring, a clue can be found on her skin.

True Blood Season 2: Vampire Comic on Blood Copy

May 27, 2009

blood-copy-vampire-comicVampire Andrew’s Blood Copy blog takes a look at vampires going into a line of work that most may think vampires cannot do:  comedy acts.  Yes you did hear me right.  A vampire performing stand up comedy.  Now before the Great Revelation how do you know if your favorite comedian wasn’t a vampire.  They could have been around for ages and we never knew that they really were vampires so it should not be too much of a surprise.  That being said heckling a vampire comedian may not be the best idea no matter how bad he may suck (no pun intended). Now most can handle an heckler but there are nights when one can get under their skin just like it can happen with a human comedian.  The only difference is heckling a vampire comedian when he is in a bad mood and on a night when he/she will not put up with it can be very unpleasant.

In one particular case that Vampire Andrew posted on his Blood Copy blog a human decides to give a vampire comedian a hard time heckling him to the point that the vampire is so visible upset that he is trying to control himself from leaping off the stage and draining the heckler.  Yet this human decides to have even more fun with this vampire by videotaping his outbursts and threats and posting it on YouTube.  Not smart.  If I was that human I would make sure I would lock myself in my home just before sunset otherwise I may not see the sunrise again.  Go over and watch the video on Vampire Andrew‘s Blood Copy blog and comment whether the vampire was overreacting or was the heckler right.  Just be careful with what you say because you never know if that vampire is reading your comment and does not take to kindly to what you have to say about is act.

True Blood Season 2: BloodCopy Fangs Up with Gawker

May 27, 2009

blood-copy-gawkerVampire Andrew is posting his first Blood Copy blog in association with Gawker Media to spread the word that vampires are everywhere and are slowly coming out of the coffin.  To the usual readers of the Gawker Media outlet, Vampire Andrew explains to them in his first post the vampire culture and not to fear them.  Well with the development of the synthetic blood and bottled TruBlood available everywhere from delis to barrooms across the country vampires no longer need to hunt humans.  In fact Vampire Andrew emphasizes that humans and vampires can co-exist and have meaningful relationship as inter-being dating sites are popping up everywhere to meet the demands.

Vampire Andrew explains what was the purpose of his blog from the very beginning. To separate the myths from the facts about vampires and it seems people are listening.  Before Vampire Andrew was turned the purpose of the Blood Copy blog was to investigate the usual messages and events that were appearing across the country a while back.  Now with vampires becoming part of the mainstream society and Vampire Andrew now a vampire himself the purpose of the Blood Copy blog is to teach humans about vampires so both can co-exist in harmony.

So now with his Blood Copy blog getting more attention Gawker Media saw the opportunity to take Blood Copy under its wing and to take Vampire Andrew’s message to a higher level.  Blood Copy is now part of a bigger media site and will be able to spread the word about the world of vampires which includes fangbangers, bloodheads, shape-shifters and even have some celebrity vampire gossip as well.

Therefore Vampire Andrew welcomes all old and new readers of his blog to enjoy his findings, commentaries and insights into the world of vampires presented to you by a vampire.

So go over to his new designed Blood Copy blog and congratulation him on his expansion as some commenters seem to have expressed their distaste for a vampire blog and do not seem to understand his purpose.
