Drinking Tru Blood Will Not Get You Sookie

SOOKIE DRINK MY BLOOOOOOD! Do you think Bill Compton eats Count Chocula for breakfast?  Hell no, he drinks Tru Blood and the blood of Rogue Sookie.  Well, if you want to be a pale clammy nerd "Vampire" you can throw back a bottle of Tru Blood and take one step closer to Diabetes coolness.

HBO is selling a 4 pack of Tru Blood for $19 ($16 for the bottles, $3 shipping surchage ) at their online store.  It has an ironic flavoring of blood orange; see the info from the site:

Meticulously crafted, the Tru Blood Drink is an exact replica of the bottle design as seen on True Blood. The 14oz glass Tru Blood bottle is stained in a rich red, with raised Tru Blood English lettering and matching Japanese Kanji.

This blood orange flavored soda is slightly tart, lightly sweet and subtly carbonated. Designed to taste great while matching the appearance of Bill’s favorite drink, the drink pours like a regular soda, but with the standing appearance in a glass is stormy and mysterious.

A quick note about the HBO store.... About a year ago I purchased two medium shirts from the HBO online store, Generation Kill and John Adams.  Much to my chagrin, the two medium shirts I ordered were damn near two different sizes.  The Gen Kill shirt fit like a standard medium (hanes beefy tee style), and the John Adams shirt was literally a friggin baby tee!  No joke, it had to be an extra small (yes the tag still said medium; it was way smaller than an American Apparel small).  No description or measurements were posted on the site for either shirt and IIRC I would have had to damn near double the cost of the shirt (in shipping there and back again) to get a properly sized John Adams shirt.  Alas, I haven't been back to the HBO store, and the thought of close to $5 a bottle of vampire juice doesn't get my blood flowing.

Was anyone else a little let down about the season finale?

Entourage is Back!

Let's face the facts here; HBO makes damn entertaining television.  I've yet to find an HBO series that I didn't enjoy.  Along with most males in the 18 - 35 year old demographic, I really enjoy Entourage.  After the long wait the season is back this Sunday chock full of celebrity cameos and although Mark Wahlberg will actually be in this season he will not be talking to animals.

Spielberg's The Pacfic (trailer)

I first heard about The Pacific a while ago when I tried to score a gig as an extra in one of the local shooting locations.  Unfortunately my very short hair didn't meet the 1940's look, but I was definitely curious about the film.

I was stoaked to see the new trailer online today!  The Pacific very much has the Band of Brothers feel, and truth be told is one of my all time favorite mini-series.  A lot of big directors from HBO's other series (Rome, Six Feet Under, Band of Brothers, etc.) worked on The Pacific.  In my mind the standard is set pretty high for this series, but I have a feeling it will deliver :) 

You can expect to see The Pacific in March of 2010.

P.S. if the embedded video gives you trouble here is the youtube version.
