First Teaser for the Final Season of True Blood Debuts

First Teaser for the Final Season of True Blood Debuts
Pour out a little O-Neg for the hommies that aren’t here anymore. HBO will debut the special grave-tastic teaser trailer for the upcoming final season of True Blood. The teaser will air on April just before “Game of Thrones” begins its fourth season at 9:00 p.m.

I still miss Gran Stackhouse and her delicious looking breakfast. True Blood its ten-episode, seventh and final season starts SUNDAY, JUNE 22 at 9:00 p.m.

TruBlood is kind of real -really! Vampires Rejoice!

Ok, vampires start booking your flights to Transylvania stat. Not you Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Alexander Skarsgard you two stay put; but you other blood suckers take note. In the Romanian city of Transylvania (Cluj-Napoca) a team of researchers announced they have produced the first ever artificial blood. Well, if remember the plot from the last season of True Blood, this is great news for the vampires, especially since the TruBlood factory blew up. :D
However, back in reality Medical Daily reports,

the new artificial blood relies not on hemoglobin, like typical artificial bloods, but hemerythrin — a protein extracted from sea worms that is then mixed with water and salts. Doctors can use the artificial blood to reduce infection rates during blood donation, and to supply lost stores in patients for several hours or even up to a day, Researcher Dr. Radu Silaghi-Dumitrescu says.

Hemerythrin mirrors hemoglobin in its duties — transporting oxygen throughout an organism’s body — but differs in which organisms those duties are performed. Nearly all vertebrates use hemoglobin to ferry oxygen within red blood cells, while hemerythrin is found only in certain invertebrates, namely worms and valves. The hemerythrin-based artificial blood isn’t the deep red normally associated with blood, but more of a translucent yellow, although Silaghi-Dumitrescu said they were able to color it red for familiarity.


No, this picture isn’t necessary but damn it’s needed!

I’m no scientist but this sounds a lot like TruBlood doesn’t it? The lines between TV and reality keeps blurring, someone can even take a bath salts drug and become a zombie. And to think people don’t think being a horror fan can prove useful. We’ll see who survives the inevitable Zombie Vampire Supernatural Apocalypse.

True Blood is Coming to an End Next Year

HBO President of Programing, Michael Lombardo, announced today TRUE BLOOD will end its run in 2014.The last of the 10 episode seventh season will air next summer.

“TRUE BLOOD has been nothing short of a defining show for HBO,” noted Lombardo. “Alan Ball took the books by Charlaine Harris, assembled a brilliant cast led by the magnificent Anna Paquin in the role of Sookie Stackhouse, and crafted a show that has taken its many devoted fans on an unforgettable journey. Alan passed the baton to Brian Buckner, who led our fantastic writers and crew in crafting a spectacular sixth season, and he will lead us through the seventh and final season of this amazing show. Together with its legions of fans, it will be hard to say goodbye to the residents of Bon Temps, but I look forward to what promises to be a fantastic final chapter of this incredible show.”

Well that’s it folks, get ready for some Eric and Lafayette detoxing. Let us pour one out for our soon to be dead or deader (ha!) hommies.

True Blood Season Six Finale – That DID happen, didn’t it?

This contains big time spoilers. If you haven’t watched the episode, I am advising you turn back now. Save yourself.**
It’s the end of another summer and the end of another True Blood season. And, I have to say, this finale gave us something to truly be worried about alllllllllll year. Not since the end of the first season when we all sat of the side of our beds biting our nails, waiting for the fate of Lafayette to be revealed, have Trubies had this much stress. They really did it this time!! Put, the Rose’ bottles down for now guys, we’ll get to Eric’s fate later. Last night’s True Blood Season finale six finale was called, Radioactive. Is it me or do the writer’s comb the airwaves for names of trendy hipster music to name their episodes after? I’m not complaining it’s just an observation.

Anyway, Terry’s funeral came to an end and everyone disbands to their perspective homes. Sookie and Alcide while walking back to Stackhouse manor came upon the newly released vamps day walking and rolling around in the grass reveling in the sun. Fun. Jason introduces Sookie to Violet, who apparently is going to take the jealous girlfriend shtick to a new level next season. I’m already over the plot; I can tell the writer’s right now we are not interested, so don’t drag this out. Tara and Pam both hug Sookie. Yes, even Pam hugs Sookie and tells her how happy everyone is for now.

But, the joy of the previous moment is ruined rather quickly for Sookie as she returns to a chandeliered fairyland. Warlow doing his best Colin Cowie impression is decorating the forest for their upcoming nuptials. Seriously dude? Ribbons and bows – hot pink bows nonetheless. Wow. Sookie tells Wars she has decided she doesn’t want to marry him instead she says they can shack it up at Stackhouse manor. Sooks tells him they can spend their time just hanging, picking out lampshades, wallpapering rec rooms, waiting for death or whatever it is you couple peeps do. I don’t know, but Warlow does not react well, in fact he decides it’s time to reenact a scene from Sleeping with the Enemy, basically he slapped the shit out of Sookie! Ooops, that’s not the look Warlow!

True Blood Season 6 Episode 9 (Recap) – Pillage, plunder and flashback

This contains big time spoilers. If you haven’t watched the episode, I am advising you turn back now. Save yourself.**
Let me start off by saying, BOOOOOOOOOO! I was actually counting on Warlow being dead, I’m not that in love with the character like I had hoped. But, Warlow lives, because Sookie saves him. Good – I guess. Last night’s episode is called, Life Matters, and the show spends the night giving up snippets in to the late Terry’s life that illustrates just that point.
After Sookie gives Warlow her blood to replace the drain that Eric put on him last week, Bill with his full ‘I’m not impressed’ face leaves the fairly closet to find the mad Viking. Back at Camp Vamp Eric is busy harkening back to his savage Scandinavian ways by decapitating the guards at the camp and freeing his fellow vamps. Seriously, there were heads and limbs everywhere, Eric went nutters! I hate this took place off camera, it would have been fun to watch I think. The newly emancipated vampires’ wastes no time literally pillaging the guards and the facility destroying every human in their path. I hope all these people have great burial policies because the place is a bloody mess.
