So I’m posting this right before The Vampire Diaries returns tomorrow night as a bit of a refresher. The next episode is Paul Wesley’s directorial debut! We sort of saw Markos! We learned a bit more about Liv and Luke. There was lots of sexual tension all around. Bonnie is off on her own being confused.
The book is an upcoming series of Julies. The book has already been optioned for film by Universal with Chris Morgan of Fast & The Furious producing.
The book hits shelves this November. So what’s it about? The book is a world where Dragons walk amongst us. Julie had this to say to MTV News, “Dragons are my favorite mythological creature. All the books that I read as a kid, it was always medieval, they didn’t really have any modern dragons. I really wanted to do something with modern dragons.” (Continue Reading…)
So much on television nowadays has a spooky-fantastical twist to it. Nothing really seems real, even shows that are meant to be grounded by the rules that govern the real-w0rld universe. However, the supernatural is such a curious peek into the imaginative mind of humans, that I really cannot resist even when it veers towards horror.
And I am pretty certain that Penny Dreadful is going to freak me out like a monster-loving boss!
And yet… I will watch because I am attracted to all things Victorian. Look at these sets:
Gorgeous! Theatrical and freaky. Vintage and steampunk. It’s all the imagery and scenic eye candy I love in a show. I do think that Penny Dreadful is definitely worth giving a shot and will, but am apprehensive given how little I liked Dracula, and it had Katie McGrath!I dunno… who else will be watching?
Penny Dreadful premieres May 11, 10/9c on Showtime.
Living in Los Angeles, we see the paps everywhere. There is a nursery school, right off Coldwater Canyon that the pap’s camp out at – and we’ve seen them literally chase parents with their kids to the car. It’s quite a disgusting sight to see.
Having friends that are in the spotlight, I have seen what it’s like to have the pap’s chase after them, scream at them, call them names when they aren’t looking a specific direction. Though that is not right, they have all told me that it’s a life they signed up for, and they don’t like it – but they deal.
I love the No Kids Policy that has been enacted – led by Kristen Bell. Bell, a new mother, knows that she signed up to be in the spotlight, but her child did not. Just Jared joined the movement today, and put it eliquently…
Recent discussions I’ve had with actresses Blake Lively, Jaime King, and Kristen Bell prompted me to take the next step at Just Jared by suspending the use of unauthorized photos of celebrities’ children throughout our sites. What does that mean for JJ readers? We won’t be posting photos of children of public figures without consent. All of the paparazzi shots of kids playing at the park, catching a flight at the airport, and walking to school will be off limits. Exceptions to the rule include consensual photos like public figures with kids on the red carpet, at sports games and concert venues, and pictures shared directly via social media.
We think that this is great. And we support it! Kids don’t deserve to have nightmares, cause the pap’s are crazy stalking them. They deserve to be kids.
We hope that many other people take this route. Kids deserve to live their life. And even just as a fan site/blogger – we agree and won’t be doing it either.
