heineken-beer-is-legendary-at-the-scribes-desk-blogHeineken is legendary at The Scribe’s Desk.

Heineken has done it again. Their latest campaign combines hilarious vignettes and a tongue in cheek defense declaring that their non actors are just real men with some pretty amazing skills. For reals. And all these legendary dudes have had their legendary-ness captured on film by Heineken, brewer of this sudsy goodness beverage of choice. The short Odyssey film is directed at all the dubious doubters of the authenticity of the legendary realness of the characters and their uber skills. To prove these guys aren’t “as fake as their fake beards” as one candid doubter surmised succinctly, Heineken is revealing the character casting tapes. And even as the female representative is obviously trying to relay some serious credibility info, her monologue is happening while a shark swims in the waterway in the background just behind said spokeswoman’s straight face. Hilarious in and of itself, but as you continue to watch the video and all the shenanigans that ensue, you will definitely find yourself laughing out loud in authentic glee.

It’s a sure fire example of art imitating life without a doubt. It’s outrageously frank in some moments and the irresistibly irreverent humor which is the theme on a whole is apparent throughout. Yes, Heineken beer’s “The Odyssey” video is some legendary hilarious authenticity.

Watch the funny reel below.

So, what do you think? Which legendary character is your favorite? Better yet, what legendary skills does a real dude — or dudette — like you possess that Heineken definitely needs to know about? You tell me yours in the comment section and I might tell you mine.

Unfortunately, True Blood’s Eric Northman Is Smoking Hot…

Well what can we say about the #TrueBloodSeasonFinale “Radioactive”? Well, we knew the song at the end of this episode was going to rock. Other than that, WTF?!?! I don’t know whether to laugh, beg, scream like Henry Cavill’s Superman, or just plain cry. One thing is for certain though, and that is that True Blood’s Eric Northman IS smoking hot… literally and most unfortunately.

THIS REVIEW ISABSOLUTELY RIDDLED AND STAKED WITH SPOILERS!!!! IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN TRUE BLOOD’S SEASON 6 FINALE “RADIOACTIVE” YET, PLEASE AVERT YOUR EYES AND PRESERVE YOUR CHANCE OF ENJOYING THE EPISODE. MAKE SURE TO COME BACK AFTER YOU’VE SEEN THE EPISODE!

While sunning himself on the slopes of beautiful Are, Sweden on what was a beautiful sunny day, True Blood’s resident Viking prince of hotness burst into flames. And not because he was too hot, technically, but because Benlow bit it when Jason staked him in Sookie’s bathroom and hence all that faerie goodness and daywalking went up in smoke. Talk about bad timing. This is what living in the now gets you if you are a vampire. I mean, if this is the end for our Northman, then I’m screaming right along with him, as are about a billion other viewers, “NNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOO!”

So please, please, please don’t let Eric Northman be dead.

Now that that is out of my system, here’s what went down:

Bill and Jessica had a party in the sun at their place. That meant that there was a drunken vampire party on the front lawn of Bill’s estate. Complete with summertime music, wacky clothes and drunken, giggling vampires, and volleyball. Good times. But Pam and Bill know how to be a drunken vampire buzzkill and the fun and games end all to soon as Pam mopes about Eric, fights with Tara, and Bill does what Bill does best. Pine for Sookie. Never fear though because Jessica is the bodyguard of Bill’s tarnished humanity. And Sookie meets Violet which is good for a laugh.

Back in Faerie-ville on that hazy, light filled faerie plane…

Benlow lost his damn mind when Sookie told him she wanted to take it slow. He unleashed his inner psycho and went all slap happy and abusive and controlling fiance on Sookie, his intended faerie vampire bride to be. Were we surprised? Oh hell to the no. We all knew he was up to no good. Besides, our bad boy radar was going off like a mofo whenever Benlow was around, no matter how delicious he was. We all almost forgot he was a baddy because he charmed the pants off of us just like he did Sookie. Come on… you can admit it. We’re all friends here. So, predictably, Bill to the great faerie rescue with an unexpected posse of Jason and Violet, Andy and Adilyn. It was here I became a real Violet fan. And it was good to see Andy and Jason kickin’ ass together again.

Violet scares the pants off Adilyn and her fear transports the posse into the faerie realm. Once they have Sookie in the protective arms of Violet, the rescuers flee back to the Bon Temps graveyard on the strength of Adilyn’s fear once more while Bill and Benlow battle it out. When a tricky Benlow transports back to Bon Temps — just like we knew he could! — Bill is literally hanging on to Benlow’s leg. It was kind of funny.

So back at Sookie’s, Bill realizes he’s truly lost his god powers. No more Billith for Bill. :( Warlow is defeated by Grandpa Niall, Sookie and Jason — the only non supe or fey of the bunch — who stakes the unfortunate Benlow. Sucks to be Mr. Flynn because his ancient fae/vampire hybrid princely self ends up a pile of shimmering goo on Sookie’s bathroom floor. And unfortunately for the vampires, so ends their brief time in the sun. And here is where the naked hotness that is Eric Northman spontaneously combusts into flames on the slopes of Are, Sweden. As he screams no, I bet he wishes he had a vacation location do over. But remember, Pam is off to search for her errant Viking Maker, so all hope is hopefully not lost.

Fast forward 6 months later…

Bill proves he’s a fame whore by writing a book entitled, And God Bled? Ha! Hilarious. I want to read that one. Sookie and Alcide FINALLY hook up. James is a rock star, sort of and I KNEW IT! Oh, and him and Jessica are together. Violet and Jason are going strong, and Violet is living up to her promise to Jason. And let me tell you, Jason IS begging. As he says, the time is due! Sometimes 3 times a night for 178 nights straight too! Lols. Awes-mazing. Sam is mayor of Bon Temps and Nicole is so pregnant and Sam and her look happy. Arlene is running Bellefleur’s, Bon Temp’s Bar & Grill since it looks like Merlotte’s is a thing of the past since Sam is mayor.

Now here’s the clincher…

While the whole town is gathered in the house of the Lord — and by that I mean church, not Bill’s — Sam announces it would be in every non Hepatitis V infected human’s best interest to pair up with a non Hepatitis V infected vampire. Yes, you heard correctly. He’s actually proposing a monogamous symbiotic relationship between humans and vampires. Which would mean a clean, willing food source for vampires and protection from hunting Hepatitis V infected vampires for humans. It’s a win win situation for everyone right?

Well, it seems to be so for Tara and her moms. To make amends for her heinous neglect and treatment of her daughter, Tara’s mom offers to feed her daughter. It seems like the perfect fix, right? But we all know it never ends well in Bon Temps. What if Tara has Hep V? What if Tara’s mom does? Whatever it is, something definitely seems hinky and suspicious there. But Tara takes a bite out of her mom anyway, hinky and suspicions be damned.

And even though Jessica is also trying to make amends with Andy and his last remaining daughter Adilyn, it is not coming up roses for our favorite Baby Vamper either. Andy didn’t shoot a wooden bullet into her heart, but he did slam the door in Jessica’s earnest and guilt ridden face. And he slammed it hard too.

So, that just leaves Sookie. And Bill. And Alcide, or should I say Bright Eyes? Lols. Bill’s new nickname for Alcide killed me. Alcide might be with Sookie now, but that doesn’t mean a thing to Bill. In fact, Bill says to our favorite werewolf’s clean shaven face, “Growl all you like, Bright Eyes, you’re not enough.” Which means, even though Alcide IS big and bad, he’s not enough to protect Sookie against vampire hordes driven mad by the lethal Hep V and craving fresh human blood. Ahem, and Bill is enough? Delusions of grandeur Bill? Well, he was god you know. And according to Bill, Sookie needs a vampire in her life. Maybe he’s still a bit prophet-ly?

And what do you think of Bill’s selfless *cough, cough* and chivalrous *cough, cough* offer of his services as protector of Sookie’s fae life’s blood? You know how irresistible she is to all supernaturals, especially vampires. She’s like vampire crack she said once, didn’t she? Thank goodness Violet isn’t tempted by Sookie’s faerie super allure. Or Jessica. But I guess that depends how hungry they all get, doesn’t it?  I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Is this supernatural guy enough for you?

And the last thing we see is Alcide’s supernatural nose sniffing out danger. And that danger just happens to be a horde of crazed Hep V infected vampires coming to the alfresco celebration dinner. And we don’t need a degree in hematology to figure out what’s on the menu. Eeesh. Are you effectively creeped out and terrified?

So here’s what we’re left with…

Eric’s smoking hot… Literally and unfortunately. Pam’s on a scavenger hunt/where in the world is Eric Northman adventure quest for her errant Maker. And if my hunch is correct, Northman may just thank his Viking boots that his progeny is so stubbornly faithful and enamored of his contrary ass. Takahashi got glamored by Bill and made out like a bandit. Tara may or may not have Hep V. Tara’s mom is on the menu… and may or may not have Hep V. Arlene’s rich and acting like a crazy Bellefleur, god love her. Benlow’s gone and so is Billith. Bill is a fame whore. Sookie IS a danger whore. Sam’s mayor of Bon Temps and a baby daddy to be, Jessica’s trying to make amends and her hot boyfriend is in a band. True Blood’s women folk are making good this season in the romance department, mostly. Andy’s watch has just begun and Adilyn is locked in the proverbial tower for her own safety, mind you. Jason is paying lip service to Violet, and a vampire horde of lethal Hep V infected vampires are as the episode title says, Radioactive. Sookie and Alcide/Bright Eyes are together at last and Bill doesn’t care. Because he still believes that age old mythical belief of his, “SOOK-EH IS MINE!”

And once again, all roads lead to Sookie. Wouldn’t Pam be thrilled?

Until Season 7, #waitingsucks doesn’t it?

Alright, so I am almost over the San Diego Comic-Con 2013 hangover. Anyone else suffering the effects of post Comic-Con gluttony? What a whirlwind weekend it was. I could barely keep up with all the excitement and the rush made my head spin.

There was tons of news, tons of extras, tons of trailers, loads of sneak peeks, and for those few halcyon days — July 18th – 21st — to be exact, San Diego was Geekdom on Earth. Those glorious fun filled days are like Christmas in July and blasts Disneyland out of the water. While THE Con is in full swing it lays undisputed claim as champion to the title, “The Best Place on Earth”. Hands down winner and I’ve got a million fangirls and fanboys who would agree with me wholeheartedly.

So what else makes the Con so awes-mazing? Why the cosplay of course! What would SDCC be without the fabulous wonder of uber nerds geeking out and dressing up as their favorite super heroes and characters?

I’ve got a few faves but for now check out my favorite cosplay outfit of SDCC 2013. Is that Bumble Bee? Sure looks like it. It has got to be one of THE best costumes I’ve seen to date so far. Look at all that awesomeness. Definite tribute to the Transformers in the best way possible.

What was your favorite cosplay get-up of Comic-Con this year? Or better yet, did you go to Comic-Con 2013 in your best cosplay gear?

I don’t really need to say much here because Johnny Depp has managed to say it all in one simple way. When I read this I felt compelled to share it. I have experienced this truth. You have experienced this truth. It’s a universal human theme.

Stories are sentences strung together. The very successful stories share this element, the infinite appeal of creating a feeling of connectedness. A connectedness that makes us feel like we aren’t so alone in the world, right?

For a moment, when I looked into his sad and mournful eyes I forgot all about the jaunty and roguish Captain Jack Sparrow, or the fact that Depp’s heart throb status has endured for decades, like he’s some kind of fine wine or something. For that moment I simply thought, Johnny Depp is human too. It made the world seem a little smaller and I felt more connected. Moments like that are wonderful so I wanted to share it with you.

And I was excited to feel spontaneous and create something without thinking about it. I just did it. Like my heart was open too. So, maybe I wrote this post because I’m a writer, maybe it’s because you are a writer or a creator in some awesome and entirely unique way, but whatever the reason I wrote this spontaneous post I hope it made you feel happy and connected too.

Comic-Con 2013 just keeps getting better and better. It really feels like this year people have pulled out all the stops and we at TSD can’t stop thinking that it’s Christmas in July! AMC’s smash hit The Walking Dead just had it’s trailer for season 4 revealed and it’s heavy on the Daryl Dixon. Check this ish out!

OH MY GOD! That’s all I kept saying because it was scary! It had what sounded like a Terminator-esque vibe. There’s a moment when a voice is heard on the car radio, very John Connors sending his survive message over the radio waves. With that kind of total devastation feel, The Walking Dead universe seems like it might be expanding into the great unknown. A great unknown filled with flesh eating walkers that is. Are you as afraid as I am that people are going to break up? Are Carol and Dixon ever going to get together? Or is she going to turn all fatal attraction?

At four minutes and twenty-six minutes long I was like, “Oh hell yes!” It was like oh my god run! Oh no! Oh no! And that was just a preview. I’m so excited. How can this show just keep getting better and better? Fellow Deadheads must be in a viewing frenzy!

And the best part? It’s heavy on the Daryl Dixon crossbow and everything. But wait… who’s he hugging like that?

The Walking Dead Season 4 premieres Sunday, October 13th, 2013 on AMC. Be there or I will presume you were eaten by a zombie.
