We watched the premiere of Dollhouse, the new TV series by Joss Whedon, he who created Buffy, the Vampire Slayer.

The show centres around dolls or actives, who get their mind erased and a new personality imprinted before a new assignment. Echo, the main doll, develops a self-awareness in her wiped state. Might that get her in trouble?

The actives live in a hidden facility called the Dollhouse.

I really hope the Dollhouse turns into Lollhouse soon, a lesbian Dollhouse. There were glimpses of it in the first episode: Echo got a little close to her doctor. And at the end, she is rescued by an extra tough dyke colleague. Welcome to the Lollhouse!

Being A Muse According to Gossip Girl

Serena: He asked me to pose for him, in his studio. To be his muse.

Blair: And you said yes?

Serena: Why not? It is romantic.

Blair: No, it’s a death trap. Being a muse never works out.

Serena: Plenty of women have been both lover and muse to famous artists. Like Picasso.

Blair: Serena, a guy starts out in his blue period and everything’s great. But it’s only a matter of time until he’s all into cubism and it’s some other girl’s eye coming out of her forehead.

Fangs Are The (New?) Fags

The Haters (You Know Who)

True Blood details the co-existence of vampires and humans in a small town in Lousiana. The HBO series centers on Sookie Stackhouse (played by Canadian content Anna Paquin, who won an Oscar for her supporting role in The Piano about 30 years ago), a telepathic waitress at a diner, who falls in love with the much older, but still young & pale looking vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer). The show is written by Alan Ball, who also did Six Feet Under. Gay.

It is very easy to see the vampires (who are referred to as fangs) as a metaphor for the fags (who are also referred to as gays).

I think I have a ‘like / hate’ relationship with the show, tipping over to ‘like’ with the most recent episodes:
– There is tons of fang banging
– There is the gay character of Lafayette, a cook, drug dealer, Internet porn wannabe
– There is vampire blood dealing, cause ‘v’ (as it is also called) is like a drug, enhancing the nine human senses

Now, finally, I’m coming to the point of the whole post. On Sunday, I heard about the second season of True Blood. We had brunch with Canadian-cutie Jeremy Podeswa, who told us that he is going to direct a couple of episodes for the next round of fang fun. I can’t reveal more, he made me sign a non-disclosure fagreement. My teeth are already growing with fangcitement.
