Ever since "Oz" went off the air, we've been missing seeing actor Chris Meloni. Sure, he was in "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit" for years and years, but something was lacking ... nudity! No one does it better than Meloni! Which is why this latest news that he's being courted for a role in "True Blood" has us so excited.
With this being the weekend that the first half of the final installment in The Twilight Saga opens in theaters and the immortal love story of Edward and Bella culminates with marriage, rough sex, a half-breed baby, and infinity as vampire man and wife, it just seemed appropriate I pick a b-movie ditty titled “All Eternity Blues” about vampires wanting out of their centuries old marriage.

He also included the film's revised artwork by Rob E. Brown.

Just where do vampires go to learn how to deal with humans on a day-to-day basis? Can't exactly head down to the nearest etiquette class or check out a local finishing school. Vamps have to be a bit more creative. Thankfully they have Valemont... a place that teaches the undead how to deal with the not yet undead.

Ever since "Beavis & Butthead" left the airwaves 14 years ago, the world has gotten a little less bright - and ironically, a helluva lot dumber. Which is why Mike Judge is back with a relaunch of his iconic show, targeting everything that sucks: from pop culture teen trends to reality television. So why are we covering it at Dread Central?
