Pack Yer Bags!

WE’RE FINALLY MOVING!

Our new home is ready and waiting, and not before time. Hours of tinkering and staring cross-eyed at WordPress has left me channelling Jane Bodehouse after a few rounds with Maryann – confused, dishevelled and more often than not, blind drunk.

While most of you are snoozing early Friday morning (US time) the blog will be locked while we transfer everything to the new server. We’ve done a few test runs, and hopefully it should be seamless -you guys have made over 21 000 comments here and that’s ALOT of yammering, so let’s cross our fingers and legs and hope for the best.

A redirect will be placed on this URL on Friday. Essentially, this means that you will automatically land over at the new site when you try to come here. Redirection may take a day or two to kick in, or as little as a few hours depending on your location.

If you do find yourself here over the weekend and the place is deserted, our new URL is:

http://www.sookieverseblog.com

The blog won’t be open for posts until Friday, but our shiny new forum is ready to roll – so head over there to register and start posting any time you like.

http://www.sookieverseblog.com/forum

Make sure you update your bookmarks, and you may also need to resubscribe to your feeds from the new site.

Pack your bags peeps! And the last one out the door–switch off the lights!

Booze for dolls? Sign me up NOW. I'll take ten.

Just Sayin’

3.01: Arlene – “I’m sorry you fell in love with a serial killer, but honestly, who here hasn’t?”

You oughta know Arlene, since you were engaged to one.

3.02: Talbot – “I just redecorated the guest room. Wait until you see the bed…Bill, it’s marvellous! It once belonged to Countess Elizabeth Bathory, Hungary’s legendary serial killer.

Rumor has it, that she loved to torture virgins and bathe in their blood.”

OH REALLY??

Fast Facts: Elizabeth Bathory’s bloodlust was the stuff of legend. So legendary, in fact, that she is often compared to Vlad the Impaler – the historical figure upon whom Count Dracula is based.

JUST SAYIN’.

“Oh, Sookie” – Oh, Noes!

Hardcore Truebie Snoop Dogg has just posted this…erm…tribute to everyone’s favourite telepathic waitress on YouTube.

I’m still chuckling as I make this post.

I guess he decided if they won’t let him on the show he’d just make his own.

Thank you Snoop for sharing your dirty, pimpy Sookie fantasies with us…I think.

All Together…and totally…DEAD!

Just like any other day, the mail man came at lunch time.

I wandered outside, expecting to find nothing more than the usual retail visual pollution and bills.

Instead, my mailbox contained nothing short of FANGIRL CRACK!

My wonderful Twitter friend @navicita went to a book signing a few weeks back, and had the divine Ms Harris sign this copy of All Together Dead for me.

I haven’t fangirled like this since I was a sweaty, hormonal thirteen year old and Duran Duran announced a world tour.

Simon LeBon still makes me want to hump the closest stationery object, and he will UNTIL I DIE.

WHAT?

If anyone is looking for me, I will be in a darkened corner licking Debra’s feet for all of eternity.

That is all.

Finale Spoiler Pics

Like almost everyone else around here I’m on a self-imposed, spoiler restricted diet right now.

Well, I thought I was. But then I saw these and, well…FUCK THAT.

I’m on it like a fat kid on cake.

I’ve hidden these juicy, ERIC-CENTRIC finale pictures for the benefit of those who have more self control than I.

Spoil Me, Evil Temptress

3.02 “Beautifully Broken” Preview

Tara reverts to her former piss-tank alcoholic self, and Eric tells Sookie that he really couldn’t give a rats ass about what happens to Bill (and as usual Eric is one step ahead of the game. We all checked out of caring about what happens to Bill a WHOLE FUCKING SEASON AGO).

Sookie finally stops flapping her gums and starts using her brain, and OH HAI Franklin Mott – bringer of creepy sex and Bill Compton’s dirty secrets.

True Blood, Season 3 – Welcome to the Twilight Zone.

3.01 Bad Blood – True Blood Season Premiere!

The Viking cometh once again to pillage your village...and make your other half wish every month was June.

Waiting has most certainly SUCKED, and nine torturous months is long enough. We’ve chewed up and spat out every True Blood spoiler and scrap, and when there was nothing official to go on – hell, we just made it up ourselves!

True Blood returns in around 12 hours, and this post has no purpose other than for us to fangirl (and fanboy), rage, and theorise as the the third season of Alan Ball’s “popcorn for smart people” is unleashed upon our already fragile and completely spoiled to-hell-and-back psyches.

As some of you know I’m not in the US and that makes it a little difficult to do episode recaps. Rest assured though, I will be kept up to speed via Twitter and my usual trusty spoilery sources until season 3 airs here in around 8 weeks time.

Even though I can’t recap, the archaic business model of corporate cable television will not be permitted to fuck with you getting your fix. Nuh-uh. To that end, I’m really excited to announce that our very own resident US Truebie, MASpencer will supply a weekly episode recap for us to screech and squee over. No doubt there’ll be some ranting and swearing involved too. Make sure you check in for these starting this coming Tuesday.

I’ve had so much fun tossing speculation around with all of you over the last six months – SVB readers are some of the coolest and most intelligent Truebies around. And if I can be a sap for just a second, I want to say thank you for the hilarity, and the insights. You have truly enriched my understanding and appreciation of this show.

So before we dive headlong into the insanity and teeth gnashing of the next 12 weeks, I guess I have only one thing left to say.

Alan Ball – if I get no other satisfaction this season, you have better give me a damn good reason for the hot mess you’ve made of Eric’s hair.

Just sayin’.




ABOUT SOOKIEVERSE

My ramblings on the Sookie Stackhouse books, and the HBO series True Blood. Everyone I know is already half crazed with my plot and character assassinations, conspiracy theories, theme explorations and general obsessing, so now I'm going to share it all with you. Spoilers and Viking worship are rampant...you have been warned!
