True Blood Season 4 Premiere

So I'm sure we've all had a chance to see the first episode of Season 4.  It's nice when a show just starts off running  I'm not going to do a recap of every episode. I have too many other things to do, and whatever, I don't really feel like it right now.  But don't stop visiting, I'll find something else to entertain you with.  I'll probably do another Swiss Cheese Recap at the end of the season.  In the meantime, I'd like to point you to the True Blood recaps over at io9 , which are way better than what I can do.

True Blood Season 2: Electric Boogaloo

Warning:  Spoiler Alert for anyone who reads this but hasn't seen the show.  Don't bitch to me if I ruin the ending for you.  I TOLD YOU.

The last we saw of Bon Tempes, the town was reeling from the discovery that an innocuous side character was a serial killer.  Beel and Sookeh were still making googly eyes at each other; Tara was drunk driving and nearly ran over a naked lady with a pig on a leash; Jason was racked with guilt about killing Poor Eddie the vampire, and the murder of V addicted girlfriend by his best friend; Sam was sad because he was the only shifter in town; and Lafayette was abducted by vampires in retaliation for selling V.  Which brings us to this Awesomeness:

3 seasons of True Blood

It took a lot of thought to come up with my first full length post.  True Blood is back on Sunday, so I decided to do a recap of the first three seasons.  Without actually re-watching any of them.  True Blood is my favorite summer show, and I have no illusions about the series.  I know it isn't quality television; I know it is absolute trash, but what beautiful, sinful, decadent trash.  So here follows my synopsis of True Blood to date.  Memory lapses are mine, plot holes are all courtesy of Alan Ball.

 Warning: If you are the type of person who gets upset about spoilers, do not read any further.  I will spoil the hell out of each season.  You have been warned.

What am I doing here?

There is a blog I visit quite often.  I don't follow blogs, I visit them.  Although I guess if you visit a blog on a regular basis that is considered following.  But I digress.  The blog is called  It consists of Top 11 lists as opposed to Top 10 lists because "Top Ten lists are for cowards".  He has a lot of funny stuff there, and you may learn some interesting and useless facts while you're being entertained. 

His most recent list is 11 Secrets of Creating a Successful Blog (Almost All of Which I Did Wrong).  It's a list of useful tips in creating and maintaining a blog.  Obviously I don't have any followers at this point because I have not advertised this blog to anyone at all.  I know, what's the point of having a blog and not telling anyone about it.  Well, I am following point number number 5.  I got that idea all on my own, but when I saw it on 11 Points I felt justified.  Point number 1 may or not be a problem. I started this on a whim. I have no theme. 

Many blogs are nothing more than exercises in narcissism. I hope I don't go that route.  But what then is a blog about me just saying random crap?

Whatever this turns out to be, I figured I should set some goals for myself.  I hope to be able to shoot for one "real" post a week.  By real I mean something that requires thought and research.  There may be additional short thought of the moment posts.

I also need to figure out how the Blogger format works.  I have the basics, but I want to be able to post pictures and links without jacking up the whole post.  I'll figure it out.

BTW, if anyone is watching, you should really check out 11 Points.  The guy has his own take on things and doesn't disappoint on the lists.

Dear Dude/Dudette

in the blue Focus,
Your bumper sticker that read "I would tell you to go to Hell, but I work there and I don't want to see you every day" put you in a rare category.  The "I don't feel like following you to your destination, waiting for you to leave your car unattended, and then vandalizing it because I don't agree with your views, because I'm that kind of person" category.
