I don't understand what's happening to me. All of a sudden, I have fallen for a lot more blond men. I was just looking at a picture of Alexander Skarsgard and he is looking pretty hot to me. Of course, Josh Lucas was on Sweet Home Alabama looking as fine as can be. Help!! I like dark-haired guys. What is wrong with me?

The blond actors I like/love:

Josh Lucas
Thomas Jane
Alexander Skarsgard (after telling my sister a few weeks ago I didn't understand the fuss)
Rupert Penry-Jones
Thomas Kretschmann
Douglas Henshall
Daniel Craig

I know I am forgetting some guys. Sorry Eugenia. Brad doesn't make my list. He's cute but he's not one of my men. I'm probably forgetting someone. LOL.

Yeah I think it was when he was crying that made me warm to Eric/Alexander. The bastard!

Yes, Daniel Craig. What a bod!

Hottie McHottie! I love it. Thanks for commiserating with me, Maya.

Maya check out Borders,Waldenbooks or even B&N,B Dalton.
Yes dark hair is the thing but thee are cute blondes out there. Of course Eric is sweet how could you think differently?

I didn't want to like Eric because everyone loves him. I'm weird like that. I like Bill b/c he's all dark and brooding and old fashioned. I know he let's Sookie down later on.

Maya I used to be so against the whole vampire lover thing. Now I am so in love with the vamps.

They should have most of the series at the main bookstore chains. If not check Amazon.com. I heard they were coming out with a boxed set around Christmas for $30.

I love the BDB books for the complexity of the world and the relationships, and the intensity of the storyline. It's deep and it has a lot going on. I'm not one to just read a book for hot sex. I like to have some deep stuff going on with my hot monogamous, vanilla sex. LOL.

Debbie (halfpint66) | 221 comments Just by looking at the names on the list I have no idea who these men are. I might know them if I see their faces, but I don't know these names.

You might know their faces. Do you watch True Blood? Alexander Skarsgard plays Eric.
Daniel Craig is the new James Bond.
Thomas Jane is on the show Hung on HBO and he played in The Punisher movie that came out a few years ago.
Josh Lucas was the husband in Sweet Home Alabama.
Thomas Kretschmann is a German actor who mostly plays villains.
Rupert Penry-Jones is a British actor and so is Douglas Henshall.

I loved the BDB series in the beginning. I really did. The world building and complex relationships between the characters were what drew me in. And what made it better was that J.R. Ward hinted that one of the brothers could potentially end up living HEA with a non-white human woman.

When I got to about book six, I kind of fell off the wagon. I don't know what happened. I think I'll eventually get back to reading them, but for right now I think I'll wait and see.

I love that guy. They need to make a clone of him so I can have one at home just like him. :-)

Whooo at that list Danielle. Good lawd...Daniel Craig. And he's got a hot British accent to boot.

Whoo...lol.

I can't believe that's Eric (Alexander Skarsgard) from True Blood & Fangtasia. I didn't even recognize him.

I know we talked about it just the other day, but I'm over BDB. She lost me with Vishous and Jane's book. I guess I'll just have to wait until you read the next one to decide if I'll even buy it. =]




message 14: by new_user (last edited Aug 29, 2009 03:52PM) (new)

new_user Delaney and Giselle, if it's any consolation, Rehvenge's book is way better than Phury and V's books. If it's the multiple storylines that turned you off, that doesn't end, but she did devote equal attention to them all in the latest installment rather than skimming on the romance. Rehv and his woman were very developed (and there was no crazy deus ex machina to allow his mate to stay with him, LOL; that ticked me off in V's). ;)

These must be the exceptions, Danielle. ;) I like Skaarsgard too. It doesn't hurt that he's a dangerous vamp either. ;)

Yeah I like Eric's dangerous appeal, too.
Delaney and Giselle, you're not alone in falling out of love with the BDB boks. The changes don't appeal to everyone. For me, they're like crack. I may hate some of the things that happen, but I want to keep reaing them.

I'm with you Debbie, I have been sans cable for two years now. If there is something I like, I buy the season on DVD... So far I have yet to go pass watching two seasons of anything (well except Top Chef and Project Runway)... Probably some deep seeded commitment issues...

But back on topic... Danielle Craig totally converted me to blonds. I was not even going to go see him as Bond out of my own personal protest against a blond Bond... But then I saw that preview of him walking out of the water and there I was practically in the front row... Lesson I learned, no longer will I hold hair color against any hot body.

Speaking of Daniel Craig fineness, Casino Royale is coming on USA. I love this movie.

I love to watch Saturday night because they show anime on Adult Swim, which really grew on me.

I'll turn it to CN and just leave it on. They have me laughing and relaxing.

Teen Titans came on the other day on Cartoon Network. I want to say last Friday and I was like, yeah. They have been cancelled.

Parris likes Teen Titans.

Oh, and yes Danielle. My hero better love cartoons or pretend he does, because I love to watch cartoons and I will watch them in the front of him.

The Venture Brothers is one of my favorites. I also love Courage the Cowardly Dog, Home Movies, Flapjack, and a few others that escape my mind right now.

new_user I love Family Guy. Maya, your brother is an animator? That's so cool!


message 37: by Yolonda (new)

Yolonda | 406 comments I'm embarrassed to admit that I used to watch Power Rangers more than my son. And I love Thunder Cats and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Although I haven't seen them in a while.


message 38: by new_user (new)

new_user LOL. I used to love Power Rangers. Mostly because of their bots. xD


message 39: by new_user (last edited Sep 01, 2009 07:12PM) (new)

new_user That is awesome, dude.

Yeah, those were all good (especially the animal transformers- are you seeing a theme yet? LOL.) I used to watch Toonami. I think Sailor Moon was my first anime. I still remember the cheesy English opening. Then I had to find other sources for my fix. LOL! You know, they used to make anime for adults though. It's much less common now. :(


message 40: by Jenn (new)

Jenn | 126 comments I loved that cartoon soap opera/melodrama Robotech from 1985 or so. It was so classic, it spanned a couple of generations of characters. The story line was just amazing.

new_user LOL. Bebop is awesome. I was kind of surprised to find myself liking Avatar too. Not what I expected. :)

Yolonda | 406 comments Arch,

I loved The Smurfs and Alvin and the Chipmunks. I watched them constantly. I could never figure out why there was only one girl and where did Baby Smurf come from if there were no other female smurfs.

I'm talking deep thinking here...

Gargamel created Smurfette to bring down the smurfs. But something Papa Smurf did, she became a good smurf.

I loved Thundercats. My favorites growing up (other than the oldies like Bugs Bunny and Woody Woodpecker, Tennesse Tuxedo, etc) were Thundercats, GI Joe, Transformers, Master of the Universe (did not like She-Ra, really lame for me), and a few others.

I've always loved cartoons. But strangely, I've never been a Scooby-Doo fan like some people. I watched it, but it's not a favorite of mine.
