Ok, lots to get through... 83 work and vamp emails sat in my inbox this afternoon, that will teach me to go away for a couple of days!

True Blood DVD of the first season is now out... The Hub has a review of the box set. has a review of "Vampire Hunter D the Manga Vol 3" (released yesterday)

Its ten years since Buffy came along, and its still on tv every single least in the UK anyway, i guess the USA is the same. The Independant has a piece on Buffy to ceelbrate its 10 years, and an interview with its creator, Joss Weldon.

My least favourite section of the blog, although i know there are plenty out there that like the sparklie vampires...its just not for me. This is the Twilight pointless story section.

Twilight is sexist. I thought it was just plain old rubbish, but there you go... twilight is sexist, according to this.

The LA Times has some news i really shouldnt label pointless... Robert pattinson has signed up for the fourth in the Twilight Series, Breaking Dawn. Also properly bloggable, is the Poster for New Moon.

Robert Pattinson was at the Cannes film festival, sharing some pearls of wisdom here.

The Telegraph reckons Twilight will be the biggest selling DVD of 2009 in the UK... only if the hype continues to obscure the reviews of the film... so yes, i'm sure it will be.

More on MTV's obsession with Twilight here...not content with nominating the film for just about every award going, they are having the Twilight cast present a scene from New Moon. Full story here.
