Elegant Horror“. That’s the phrase the producers are using to describe  NBC’s highly anticipated new series, Hannibal.  It  couldn’t be more accurate.   The atmospheric tone of this new show has me more than intrigued.  Frankly, I’m amazed that a network is attempting to show this much gore and disturbing imagery, but I’m really looking forward to it. I love, too, listening to the writers, actors and producers speak about this sacred ground with the exaltation it deserves.  Oh, please do take a moment, won’t you?

I’ll warn you, if the Hannibal Lecter books (by Thomas Harris) or the thrilling films, freak you out, this may not be your cup of tea. (Or your sautee pan of human organs.)



Now, here’s the thing:  Brittani – The Girl You Want and I are SERIOUS and PROTECTIVE about Hannibal.  We. Mean. Business.  “Do NOT screw it up”, is our constant mantra.

We are both on-board with the cast:  Take a look for yourself.


Hugh Dancy Special Agent Will Graham (13 episodes, 2013)
Mads Mikkelsen Dr. Hannibal Lecter (13 episodes, 2013)
Caroline Dhavernas Dr. Alana Bloom (13 episodes, 2013)
Lara Jean Chorostecki Freddie Lounds (13 episodes, 2013)
Aaron Abrams Brian Zeller (13 episodes, 2013)
Laurence Fishburne Agent Jack Crawford / … (13 episodes, 2013)
Hettienne Park Beverly Katz (13 episodes, 2013)
Scott Thompson Jimmy Price (13 episodes, 2013)
Torianna Lee Elise Nichols (3 episodes, 2013)
Demore Barnes Tobias Budge (2 episodes, 2013)
Austin Macdonald CJ Lincoln / … (2 episodes, 2013)


Hugh Dancy as Will Graham has much more depth, mystery and a quiet charisma than Edward Norton did in the film, Red Dragon.  Adding even more toughness is Lawrence Fishburne as Agent Jack Crawford.

Mads as LeChiffre in Casino Royale

Next up, we have Mads Mikkelsen (whom you may remember as LeChiffre in the James Bond film, Casino Royal; he had a rather nasty nervous tic wherein his eye would bleed tears while under stress during a particularly pricey poker gamer.  Oh, and yes…a certain torture scent involve a seatless chair, a tied up James Bond to said with ropes…all orchestrated by LeChiffre. (Aaain, Brittani and I consider this very scene as one of our all-time greatest film moments.)

As I’ve made it quire clear, This new series in indeed our cups of tea…to say the least.

Just remember those words:  ELEGANT HORROR.

What are YOUR thoughts on this? It’s just a TV show…it’s not real. (Well….much, anyway.)

Let me help you.  You will watch Hannibal.  You will watch it each week. And you will be alarmed, frighted, intrigued, maybe even put-off a bit by some scenes.  But. YOU. WILL. LOVE. HANNIBAL, which will premiering in NBC at April 4th from 10 pm to 11:00.

Now, you’ve been warned in a slightly more sinister fashion.  We are not merely ASKING you to watch Hannibal, Brittani and I are politely requesting that you sit down on Thursday evening at 10.00 p.m. sharp on your local NBC affiliate.

Are we coming in clear? 

Brad, Angie and The Pitts Attend ‘In the Land of Blood and Honey’ in NYC

The Golden Couple

Angie and Brad attended the premiere of Angie’s directorial debut, “In the Land of Blood and Honey” with Brad’s parents last night.  Angie wore a very BORING conservative Ralph Lauren long, black dress.  I can’t even refer to the frock as a “gown” because it’s just so bland.  I get the whole, “I’m a DIRECTOR!” statement she’s trying to make, but wow.

Angie with Brad's Parents....Body Language Much?

Let’s discuss Hayseed McDoofus now, shall we?  You know what?  Just take a look.  I can actually hear him snorting like he did when he portrayed “Early Grace” in Kalifornia.  Lort.

Hayseed McDoofus

I am DYING over this…

So, yeah.  “In the Land of Blood and Honey”.  A serious, dark, apparently very realistic love story during the Bosnian war.  All I care about right this second is how these two look these days.

Judas Video PREMIERE – Lady Gaga!


Watch while you can, y’all…it’s gonna be yanked any second.  (Why do I feel like like I’ve been yanked after sitting through this mess?)

Honestly, Stefani.  I expected far more from you.  We could have made this video in the Ventura High School AV Department (SHOUT OUT!) back in the day.  Take one part Janet Jackson’s “Escapade” video and part of her her brother’s “Beat It” video, cram into an old Oster blender, cross ourselves as the SCAT bus (that’s what it was called…don’t ask) drives past The Mission on our way home to The Avenue (we know who are are!), add some crows  CA CAAAAAW CA CA CA CA-ing ,  and we’re done.

These photo-grabs from the video are hilarious…

THIS one reminds me of a gross Dave Attell joke involving a dog’s peen and it being the reddest-red in the Crayola Crayon box.  (Look it UP, Donna, if you want to fully understand.) Or don’t.  Because I pretty much just ruined the punch-line.
