Some Beehl hatin'

Who needs a moment of pure schadenfreude enjoyment? I know I do.

I'll be honest, I kinda like book Bill, his geekiness was funny. And I was fine with true blood Bill at first... but now... I hate true blood Beehl.
Thus these gifs, made to fit one of the now-closed first week polls on the Sookieverse Blog:

Dear niece:

Did you see this?

He'll be the perfect chaebol caught in a love triangle... with a girl (moon geun-young) caught in 2, count them, 2 contract marriages? and the other guy will be jang geun-seok (of You're Beautiful fame) playing an indie rock musician?


When this k-drama is available to watch, I will. I LOVE ye olde contract marriage k-drama storyline to begin with...

Thank you thank you thank you Marta-san for your generosity!

Ha ha.

See, I just watched back-to-back the season finale of True Blood and the season premiere of Vampire Diaries.

Man oh man.

Hbo can sell itself all it wants, but vampire diaries was waaaaaaaaaaaaay better. Dramatically speaking, editing, musically, pacing, the works.
I felt for all the characters in VD, and laughed at all the characters in TB. Never thought I'd say something like that... since I wasn't a fan of VD in the beginning, but the show grew on me as it found itself, while I was ALL for TB and have had the misfortune of watching it sink into the downward spiral of wtf that it has become.

All that's left for me to do is mentally prepare for what's to come. I just KNOW alan ball is ruin my favorite sookie stackhouse book (dead to the world) next season, I just KNOW IT.
Meanwhile, I'm gonna enjoy watching Vampire Diaries, and anxiously wait for Supernatural.

Arashi jet!

From Tokyograph:

Sat, September 4, 2010 (11:58am EDT)
Japan Airlines, which is currently undergoing reconstruction due to its financial troubles, is looking to boost its business with Arashi's help. The airline has commissioned a single "Arashi Jet," which is basically a Boeing 777 whose fuselage is decorated with a 5-meter-tall, 20-meter-wide seal bearing the images of Arashi's members, along with the title of their latest album, "Boku no Miteiru Fuukei."

The plane will take its first flight on Sunday at 1:30pm, flying from Tokyo's Haneda Airport to Osaka. The plane is expected to be primarily used for domestic flights, serving the routes between Haneda and three other airports: New Chitose Airport in Sapporo, Itami Airport in Osaka, and Fukuoka Airport in Fukuoka. JAL plans to use the plane until January 2011.

In addition to the Arashi Jet, JAL will be selling the "Boku no Miteiru Fuukei" album (with a specially designed cover) in-flight on several of its domestic routes.

Now, who is dying to fly on that airplane? I AM.
