Lestat is back. I'm extremely pleased to hear the news. I've been a fan of the Vampire Chronicles for ages. This is wonderful! I just hope Hollywood will be respectful should they turn the new book into a film. I'm no Tom Cruise fan, but he was Lestat. Interview with the Vampire was an incredible movie, but Queen of the Damned? What a disaster. Stuart Townsend as Lestat. Ugh. Such a disgrace.
Anyway...I WANT TO KISS ANNE RICE RIGHT NOW!!

This performance is amazing. The songs. The stage. Everything.
Damon Albarn and his band The Heavy Seas at the BBC 6 music festival this past weekend. If you didn't get to see it - you can watch it here. The link, which I'm so thankful for, is from Damon's Official FB page. I hope you can find time to watch it. It's only about an hour long.

Tried to post this earlier today, but the link wouldn't work. Looks like it's working now. Here's hoping, anyway!
Damon was featured on the Culture Show the other night. You can go here to view it (the video should start instantly [link is from Damon's official facebook page, by the way]). It is only thirty minutes long. Very interesting and insightful interview. He shows us the homes he lived in as a child and other places that inspired him to make his newest record, Everyday

I've decided to put this in my blog as well. When I heard the news yesterday, this feeling of tremendous anger and sadness swept through me. It felt like an excruciating burning pain throughout my whole body as tears rolled down my cheeks. WHY? AND FOR WHAT?? Someone somewhere would have adopted Marius. There is nothing the Copenhagen Zoo can say or do to justify their actions. And, in front of innocent children, too?? My god. Frightful.
