So... What Season is it?

Obviously, 2010 is the year of delayed gratification... I've been patient enough... We have no new Vampire shows on t.v., all of the paranormal shows are taken off the air, or in reruns... my book club hasn't made a new delivery in what feels like an eternity... and to top it all off.. I've been waiting to see Nic Cage in Season of the Witch since Halloween of last year!
How much does that suck?? Instead, I'm doomed to watch and re-watch the trailer in anticipation.
This movie appears to have all the great graphics and special effects to make a decent name for itself, so why is Lionsgate screwing with us? Oh, I don't know... fear of competition from Diary of a Wimpy Kid that just happened to be scheduled for release on March 19th along with the Season??  Who knows. 
What I do know is I would love for the HollyHeads to pull themselves together and give us some more of what we need.  In case you haven't heard, seen, or otherwise been notified about this movie, here's the trailer.
Get Your Witch On!

Hot for a Fixer!

Good Evening Vampire Followers!

I am so into anything paranormal, but as I've said before, I really LOVE vampire!! Love em' in the night and even in the morning.  So, being that I have a slight addiction to Facebook, I found a site, became a fan and have been waiting with bated breath to see an update for a gothic novel that is apparently being considered  for production. It looks really cool!
As a small hope that they do somethin' with this thing, I'm posting it here... Take a look, become a fan on FB, becuase I think we could all use another Vampire Hero!

Sorry, the Site Creator doesn't allow embedding - you will leave my site.  But hey, at least it's trusted!

Monday Night Rewind - Wolf Starring Jack Nicholson

Hi there Paranorms!

Since we've discussed some of my favorite movies over the past couple of days, how about some of the very worst?
I guess back in 1994, the special effects were lacking, but I have to give old Jack a giant thumbs up for giving it the old Heeeeeeeeeeeere's Johnny try! Not sure if you ever watched this one, but as you can see from the clip, it was something... indeed!
If your Monday was anything like mine, this is just the comic relief that you need! And Michelle Pfeiffer happens to be in this one as well.  It's no Witches of Eastwick, but alas that was a hard act to follow.
Enjoy and have a great Monday night!

Sunday - Day of the Sabbath & Night of the Vamps

Good day all! 

One of my favorite days of the week is Sunday.  I like to get up early and catch a morning church service, eat breakfast with the family (during which time we usually argue about something - like my teenaged daughter's love of spending money or my delightful boyfriend's inability to admit when he's wrong) and finally, for the better part of the afternoon - watching or reading something dealing with Vampires.  I luuuurrrrvvvvvvvvv all things Vampire -

I started with Bela Lugosi as a small child on Saturday afternoon movies... wouldn't go outside to play with my friends until I was done watching.

One of the classics... Let's take a moment to pay homage to the late great Bela.  He's wasn't beautiful - like one of the Lost Boys - but he definately was my first Vampire love! Smooches to a great Old Timer!

Somewhere in the most recent decade, however, my indulgances moved to Sunday's ... I watch the Vampire Diaries online, and True Blood at night.  And yes, I am completely aware that Vampire Diaries is available for viewing by the general public each Thursday evening courtesy of the CW, but I take great pride in marching to the beat of my own drum.

Actually, I even watch some old DVDs of Buffy.  Another classic, nothing like a good slayer to get the blood going.

I'm wondering if there are many other folks out there that have a designated day to indulge in a few of their favorite things... There has to be right?

Anyway, here's what I'm watching right now... The Dark Side of the Moon episode (original aire date 4/1/10). It's a pretty good one, and it fits my Sunday theme since two characters (Sam and Dean) are shot and sent to Heaven.  My rating scale... 4 outta 5 stars.  Novels turned television series will never get the full stars from me, since they never rate as good as the images that I conjure up in my mind while reading.

I can't think of a better way to spend my Sunday's.  And if you, like me, prefer, the Vampire Diaries has novels, ass kicking good novels, to feed your need.

Until next time, hold the garlic and spend a great night with your local Vampire!

Take Bloody Care!

Is Bella Still...

I know, I know... Yes! Bella is still a virgin! And yes, it is a waste of a perfectly good vampire on dry humping, but... It's still entertaining for the romantic at heart... hmmm, call me sappy if you will.

Take a look at the latest trailer for Twilight Eclipse. (and, yes I am going to see it:-)

Let Me Introduce Myself...

Van Helsing (Full Screen Edition)Hello There!

I am absolutely stoked about this newest blog.  I've been an enthusiastic reader; writer; and watcher of all things paranormal from VanHelsing to Twilight to True Blood (Sookie Stackhouse Series by Charliane Harris) to The Mummy... ok, so The Mummy is a stretch, but it does fit the bill.
I should clarify, I HATE horror movies... I don't like the blood, guts, and gore that is typically associated with them.  I don't really know why, but there are lots of folks that simply can't understand that concept.  Well, let me explain myself - I'm a hopeless romantic, and I love seeing that hopelessness in my literary figures - i.e. a slayer in love with a vampire, a man trapped in a new form (werewolf, vamp...) that prevents the romance of a lifetime, et cetera, et cetera.

I am truly in love with being in love, and the very minute that I find a paranormal critter to share my life with, I'm kicking my almost perfect, albeit human, boyfriend to the curb.

I figured, what better way to spend my time that writing about my love of all things paranormal??

Since I'm here, let me show you a few of my fave's...

1. The Entity - The movie was responsible for the first minor quake in my nether regions! A sexy, creepy to some, allegedly non fiction story of girl meets incubus.

2. Dracula - effin Bram Stoker's Dracula - Woooweee! My relationship to the young, freaking HOT Count was somewhat unnatural... I think I'll watch that one later tonight!

3. Blade - Now I've never, ever, thought anything of Wesley Snipes, but from some reason, that polyurethane trench coat with a big ass blade hanging out either end had my forefinger in my mouth.

4. The Mummy III - Call it what you like, and barring the love interest change in the middle of a trilogy, I think that when you combine a relatively sexy Brendan Fraser - if you go for the dumb an' beefy type - and that Jet Li (again, the young hawt version), you can color me happy!

5. True Blood and/or Sookie Stackhouse Series: Love, love, love this.  Eric is my man!! Woo! By the way, the new season will be here in just a couple short months on HBO. But, do me a favor and read the series.  We writers will become starving artists for sure if everyone forsakes the literary for the quick fix that tv and the big screen offer... Pretty please!

Those five movies, book series, and television shows, while they may be somewhat mainstream, are gloriously sexy and well thought out.

Makes my heart flutter at the very thought.

I hope you enjoyed my first blog on Paranormal Playground and that you will visit us again.

Be sure to take a gander in one venue or another when you get a chance.

Till next time, guard your neck, wear some silver, and please stay away from graveyards!
