ok i dont like commenting on beautiful gifs liek this but “damn hes hot here!”
Ok I haven’t posted in a while but this Sooric video is too good to not be posted. WATCH IT!
Needs to re-watch all of True Blood from season one to season five. I need to see the things I have missed (example- give aways of Billith’s transformation) I need to see this for myself from the beginning. So I set off to watch True Blood :) hehe
What if people started naming their mouths and tongues so, for example, I named my mouth…. Bill Compton and then named my tongue….. crap. So you can say my Bill Compton has crap in him. Sorry this is what happens when I’m tired and left alone to think for several long hours by myself.
Yeah, Sookie, that was my reaction to the
Playboy MansionBill’s Pimped-out House. :))
He really made it into a pretentious, overdone mess, didn’t he? Worse than Russell’s house, which at least had Talbot’s fussy taste going for it, even if it was crammed with all the loot Edgington managed to collect over the millennia. Russell never met a tchotchke he didn’t like, but at least Talbot kept the vulgarity to a minimum. Bill didn’t have anyone reminding him he inherited an antebellum plantation, not a contemporary loft. No glass and metal desks, tribal artifacts, or zebra skin rugs.
I will admit the outside of the “palace” looked great but holy shit for the inside. Its like someone puked up inside. Shakes head at the mess that was Bill’s crib. DECORATOR please.
All of which was probably the point the set designer was making. Bill’s house went from moldy decaying rot ( indicative of his self hating soul) to overblown obnoxious newly rich ( indicative of his new power hungry mode). Home decore speaks reams and vulumes about who somebody is, and Bill’s is used very effectively in this way. I have often thought we never see Eric’s house because Eric’s inner self was to be kept more mysterious and less obvious so that the audience would be ambivalent towards him (at least in S1-3) .
It’s true, the environment — especially as deliberately staged as Bill’s Pimp Mansion — tells us a lot about the owner. And it’s true we are not shown Eric’s house, because, yes, it would be very definitive, and we were discovering Eric slowly.
But we do get glimpses into Eric’s environment choices very clearly at times. Through all the seasons. There’s his office at Fangtasia. It’s almost nondescript as offices tend to go, but look carefully and there’s a wealth of information. From his choice of art to the books on the shelves to the sword on the wall. The office is unassuming, work-oriented, and the personal things are really personal. They are not there to impress anyone (Eric reserves the “show” for the main bar — the throne, the outfits, those are for impressing the customers), they are there for him alone and for his convenience. The posters reflect his sense of humor. The books reflect his interests. The swords reflect his history…
And then there’s the cubby at Sookie’s place. It’s a bed and some books, and it’s telling. What he needs for comfort is a place to lay his head and something to read. :)
It’s hard to say what Eric’s house as a whole might look like, but if his office and the cubby are any indication, utility and personal touches over ostentation would win every time. :)
If it’s anything like it is in the books it’ll remind us of scandanavia, apparently, but will also have some vibrant and bold colours. Though I haven’t read the books for a while now so my memory may be failing me now :)
