Everything I ever need to know I learned from…’The Vampire Diaries!’



I’ll never forget that fateful night where I couldn’t sleep and turned to Netflix for company. The Office? Not feeling it. Say Yes to the Dress? Been there, done that like a thousand times. The Vampire Diaries? This looked interesting. Continue reading


The Best of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ panel at San Diego Comic-Con!




The question on every fan’s mind at the end of the last season of The Vampire Diaries was undoubtedly this: Are Damon and Bonnie going to come back from the infamous ‘other side?’ If you’re looking for the answer to that question… you came to the wrong place. Though cast members Ian Somerhalder, Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Kat Graham, Matt Davis and writer Julie Plec lined up for the panel at the 2014 Comic-Con, they were giving nothing away about the upcoming season. They were, however, dazzling us with their wit, charm, adoration for their fans and, yes, their good looks. Continue reading

There’s only one thing I love more than an awards show, and that’s when it surprises me. Often times, we can all simply guess who is going to win a category by simply looking at the nominees. For example, when Taylor Swift won Favorite Country Artist, you know everyone in the world said “called it!” However, at the 2014 People’s Choice Awards, I was pleasantly surprised by who took home the trophy, who didn’t and the fashion in which the stars accepted their awards.

The Very Best of Fifty Shades Fan Trailers

I first became aware of the Fifty Shades of Grey fan trailer phenomenon when someone sent me a link to a trailer (featured below) by Chelsea Lincoln. I was amazed by how real it looked and found myself clicking from one of her videos to the next continually surprised by the finesse and attention to detail that went into making them. From there, I was quickly surfing around youtube watching one trailer after another amazed by the sheer quantity of fan created trailers out there and sometimes amazed by the quality of these creations, like in the case of Ms. Lincoln’s. After yelling at the friend who sent me the original link (I seriously wound up losing at least two hours of work time), I moved on and forgot about the Fifty Shades fan trailers for awhile… until The Daily Quirk started receiving emails about them.

‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 4 Spoilers & Speculations!

Last season’s shocking finale of The Vampire Diaries has us all on the edge of our seats waiting to find out how life in Mystic Falls is going to change for Elena, Bonnie, Caroline, Matt, Tyler and those handsome Salvatore brothers. Elena being turned was by far the biggest shocker of the series thus far. Even though many fans expected it would eventually happen, the manner of the whole thing with Rebekah causing Matt and Elena to drive of the the bridge and Elena asking Stefan to save Matt resulting in her own death (not to mention her not knowing she had the vampire blood in her system!) put an exciting twist on the inevitable.

Now that The Vampire Diaries Season Four Premiere is only weeks away, I figured I would round up some of the best spoilers and give my own take on how I expect season four to play out. Read on for Season Four Spoilers and Speculations!

Multiple news outlets began reporting this afternoon that Ian Somerhalder will be meeting with the producers of Fifty Shades of Grey after tweets from fans claiming he had confirmed the news. The supposed confirmation took place today, August 19, 2012, at The Vampire Diaries Convention in New Jersey. After being asked about the part, Somerhalder reportedly replied that he would be meeting with the producers of the film next week in Los Angeles. Fans then shared this information on twitter starting a fire storm of speculation. But is it true? Continue reading

An Open Letter to Ian Somerhalder

Dear Mr. Somerhalder,

Ian Somerhalder with a fan

Just thinking about your near perfect existence makes it hard to decide where to start this letter, cause honestly your hotness make me dumb, so maybe I should start with your other super cool traits and work up to it. We’ll gloss over the whole unbearably attractive thing and talk about how it would be unfair for even a mildly attractive person to be as awesome of as you appear to be in interviews and on twitter.

Not only do a majority of your tweets have a dali lama-esque peace and good will to all quality, you  also seem to genuinely appreciate the social influence your fame grants you and realize that with great power comes great responsibility. The Ian Somerhalder Foundation is proof you’re not just all happy thoughts, and that you actually do something about the the views you’re constantly tweeting. Although, to be completely honest, I am not sure what the foundation actually does (because according to the site it seems to be about saving all the good stuff on earth from bad stuff on earth and that’s not so specific…). Regardless, I think it must be awesome for two reasons:

  1. Your pretty mug founded it… and
  2. There are pictures of adorable animals and happy kids all over the site and any organization centered around cute animals and making kids smile has to be good! Right?

So yeah, that ISF thing seems pretty rad of you, and so is how you treat your fans. You don’t get all I’m too important to acknowledge the little people. You make more announcements about sending out autographs for fans and meet and great opportunities than anyone else I follow on twitter (and I follow a lot of people, many of whom I would be ashamed to mention… Kim Kardashian ahem ahem). You are willing to engage your followers, even the superfreak cyberstalkers who make mildly creepy youtube videos about you to Rascal Flats songs and secretly do voodoo rituals to ward off Nina and her ten meters of super fab legs. That combined with how humble and sweet you seem (and your face that is just too much) pushes the you are too awesome to exist quotient to the extreme.

Speaking of that face. My word. Even the horrible hairstyles they give you on the Vampire Diaries cannot ruin the masterpiece that is you genetic sequence.  But seriously, let’s take a minute and discuss that hair. Karen Walker would says it’s got a little moose and squirrel in it and I tend to agree. If the goal of your hairstylist is to make you appear less attractive than Mr. Wesley with his perfectly coiffed bouffant, tell him or her close, but no cigar. I tend to think that’s not the reason though, because if they wanted us to find you less attractive we wouldn’t see you shirtless every other episode and wearing those crazy low cut pants. Where do they get those pants anyway? Does anyone actually sell pants with that low of a waist line or does The Vampire Diaries employ a little old lady to cut four inches down from the waistline of normal people pants and then sew the waist back on the whole time wondering what could be the purpose? She’s got to wonder because it’s not like they can tell her the viewers want to see Mr. Somerhalder’s happy trail because then they would have to explain what that terms means and that is no convo to be having with a nice little old lady, but I digress…

I would feel like I did not do you justice if I did not devote an entire paragraph to your eyes, Ian (can I call you Ian?), so how about we talk about that next? Ian, your eyes are the kind of blue that makes angels sing and unicorns weep. They are a shade of blue that technicians spend hours photoshopping onto other celebs whose eyes could never live up to the grandeur which is your own. They are a glorious otherworldly blue and I’m afraid that if I ever looked directly into them I would be turned to a pillar of salt. I’ll leave out the fact that you do that weird thing where you open them too wide in serious scenes and make me frightened that they will roll right out of your head and unto the floor because honestly, it just makes me fume a little and I like a little love hate in my relationships.

Your one major drawback is your love of cats. Some women would love this about you, for them it would make a you a demigod, the perfect male specimen, but for me it’s confirmation that you are not some kind of superhuman cloning experiment or a cyborg sent from the future to distract us with your good looks while you make us all go green. There is just something about a guy that likes cats that I find extremely unsettling. Don’t ask me why, maybe it say something about me and my own psychosis, instead of you, but cat guys freak me out and there is no ifs ands or buts about it. Perhaps that is why we would never work out, and it’s a good thing that you have Miss Dobrev and I have my own blue eyed Adonis at home who doesn’t like cats and keeps his eyes open to an acceptable degree.

POLL: Who Should Play Christian Grey?

UPDATE: The people have spoken. By popular demand, we have added three new choices to the poll: Matt Bomer, Jessie Pavelka, and Tom Welling. These boys are going to be way behind our original three options, so make sure you show them some voting love! The Poll closes 9/30/12.

With hollywood hunks Alexander Skarsgard and Ian Somerhalder already throwing their hats in the ring to play the enigmatic Christian Grey in the movie versions of E.L. James steamy Fifty Shades Trilogy, and the online community pushing for the new superman Henry Cavill to take on the role, it looks like the casting director will have no trouble finding the film franchise it’s leading man! Who do you think should play Christian Grey?
