The funny thing about True Blood is it's based off this book series of which I read the first book, flipped out about it being awful on LiveJournal, and burned my copy.

And now it's a multi-million dollar cable program. Heh.


Well, my other current guilty pleasure right now is mermaids. Just borrowed Splash from the library and watched the shit out of it.

I discovered this sort of furry-like fandom where women make their own mermaid tails and sim around in open ocean. Stitch and I were going to crash their convention in Vegas, but apparently their event switched from three days to just Friday.

I meant to say barf, not bark... damn I am sleep deprived lately.

But yeah... the series is horrible too. I went on numerous rants about how stupid it is... but Ben keeps watching it, and it's kinda like a train wreck. I just cannot turn away.

For some reason I was thinking of Bloodsport.

Which, could potentially be a guilty pleasure of mine? Damn I love that movie. This is my theme song.

I unfortunately read the first 4 books of the True Blood series. Well, Sookie Stackhouse whatever...

The first one was sorta kinda okay. I mean, I remember thinking it was a little weird, but that I would put up with it. Kept telling myself that it wouldn't be so popular if there wasn't something good about it (This was right before True Blood aired. Like, JUST before, and I wasn't familiar with it all enough to make the connection. Someone just threw the book at me while I was leaving to go see my dad in Tennessee, and said "enjoy.") But, being bored in Tennessee, I went and bought the next three...

And they're the same thing. Over. And. Over. Again. And this dumb bitch just keeps getting into the same kind of trouble. Over. And. Over. Again. /rant.

But the series...I can only say that the little I've seen, I've enjoyed. Didn't exactly pull me in, but I didn't want to gouge my eyes out for watching either.

Bloodsport? Epic.

The latest guilty pleasure has been looking up '90s songs on YouTube and playing the crap out of 'em.

Eve 6 has probably been the more prevalent in things I've been playing.



I really think they wrote these songs in the anticipation of nostalgia. Like most of their songs are about missing people, heartbreak, devotion, and sometimes just saying fuck it and driving off into the distance because you don't need anybody.

It's like you'll come to remember these songs and listen to them as you grow to identify with them.



EDIT: The new YouTube tags aren't working for me.

I usually can't justify a show nor critique it unless I have seen a couple episodes and True blood to me isn't exactly my cup of tea.

It's basically a softcore porn but it has vampires, shapeshifters, and witches thrown into the mix and blah blah blah blah blah.

I watched a few episodes and I kinda felt...I dunno, unsatisfied with it?

Again though, can't really say it's not enjoyable to watch. Cause millions love it and a lot of my friends do. So meh, I'm sure it's good. But I never found the appeal for it.

I'm really irritated by Sookie. Seriously, she's the most over-dramatic annoying character ever. But Sam? He's a badass. And Lafayette is hilarious as hell!

It's the mashing together of Sheldon and Amy, two characters from CBS' The Big Bang Theory.

In last night's new episode, Sheldon finally, officially asked Amy to be his girlfriend. Though it's doubtful they'll even hold hands, kiss, or do anything more than they were already doing (which was pretty much being stimulating conversation for one another), I'm still thrilled that it's official.

The funny thing is the writers created the name mash-up before Amy was even seen on the show:


Just for fun, here's their first date from a much earlier episode (Penny's just there as a chaperone):


I'm not usually a shipper, but I think they're cute together.

EDIT: Also, just for shits, here's them playing a game they invented:


EDIT TO THE EDIT: Oh god, they're too good not to share. Here's when they briefly "broke up":

Ah, I see.

I... downloaded a free Harlequin Blaze ebook on my amazon kindle app for my phone. I was really bored and the plot sounded fairly amusing.

Speaking of Kindles, I'm actually planning on getting a Nook Tablet with my leftover FAFSA money, basically so I can get back into reading. I've had so much trouble reading books in the past few years and I'm hoping that this might help a bit. The backlight would obviously help me read before I go to bed (I won't need a booklight or the actual light on or anything like that).

... ok... so the romance novel thing has continued and I actually found something amazing.

The series is called Viridis, and it's a Steampunk romance mystery novel. The world the author created is just amazing, and I really think that she made a romance novel just to get it published easier.

I've been watching A LOT of Storage Wars lately. And I've given Auction Hunters and Storage Hunters a chance, but they suck.

Storage Wars, being the original, just has more going for it. It's like a treasure hunting Antiques Roadshow with how the majority of the show focuses on the appraisals and what to look for in certain items. It's just so fascinating. Plus it's a group of people going to different auctions all around California, so I'm intrigued since they tend to frequently go to certain places for appraisals that I've been to.

Auction Hunters is just two guys going around the country, going, "Yeah, we're the shit and we're totally winning all of these auctions out from under the hick locals," and then trying to sell everything they bought. It's Spike TV's copy-cat show, so what else is there to expect, I guess.

Then there's TruTV's Storage Hunters, which is full of "drama" with people literally fighting in the hallways and it just sounds so scripted. It's supposed to be a group show, like Storage Wars, but it tends to just focus on this couple you just want to see fail.

Yeah... I've got too much time on my hands.

Rogue: I know you aren't really big into gaming and such, but if guys are ever bored enough the Cobalt Nightmare larp can always use extra NPCs. It is cheap to free and you get exercise at least.

As for my recent guilty pleasure, it is a more traditional one... ice cream. Specifically, Edy's (Dryer's) black raspberry chocolate ice cream which is like $6 here for a quart or so. I have finished half of it on my own and have no intentions of sharing because it is the closest thing to the Thrifty razzberry rumba that I loved so long ago... and that I still consider my favorite even though they stopped making it nearly a decade ago.

I've been abusing the shit out of Deviantart, looking up fanart of the characters I ship in different fandoms. Katniss/Peeta (commonly shortened to "Peeniss"), Korra/Mako, and Amy/Sheldon, primarily, but I still go for Rapunzel/Flynn, Arya/Gendry, Jon Snow/Ygritte, The Hound/Sansa, Hungary/Prussia, and of course, Rogue/Gambit.

I know not all of these are official, but I can dream. *Sigh*

EDIT: How could I forget to include Black Canary/Green Arrow?!
