Baby, I'm aMUSEd by you

Follow my blog for thirty seconds and there's a high chance you'll see Ian Somerhalder on it. A picture, of course. Not Ian in the flesh. Because that would just be...awesome.

Ian is one of about three regular muse avatars - logging as much blog space as Kiefer Sutherland and Alex Skarsgard.

I've been missing True Blood (or maybe just Eric) and considered asking Alex to step up as muse this week. Especially after recently watching the somewhat messed up movie, Thirteen, where Alex has an...interesting...role...

Sidenote: If you've seen this movie and have an opinion (about Alex or otherwise), please share.

I also considered Kiefer this week. Between his upcoming internet movie, Confession, and filming of the 24 movie (eep!), and his not-soon-enough return to the small screen, Kiefer has been on my mind more than usual.

Check out the trailer for Touch, coming to Fox in March.

I couldn't help but watch and re-watch this video after seeing a tweet from superstar writer and TV reporter extraordinaire Candace Havens, where after viewing the first episode said: Wow, just wow.

That pretty much sums up how I feel about Kiefer all of the time :-)

But unlike his kick-ass role in 24, Touch features a softer side of the former Jack Bauer, and this week, I need someone a bit grittier.

Enter Ian. Again.

Vampire Diaries is back after the mid season hiatus (a painful time period I tend to refer to as torture) and while he has been showing a more compassionate, softer kind of vampire, he's still a bad ass. If anyone can get the job done, it's Damon, er Ian.

And well, I need a lot of jobs done.

I'm totally stoked about the the launch of Vine Leaves Literary Journal, but it's time to shift my focus back to my creative writing for a bit. The idea factory is churning up a storm and my brain is on overload. I'm averaging a new idea a day, and even at my best, I could never keep up.

I'm definitely not at my best.

Here's hoping Ian can kick my butt into gear and get me past the blank page.

Wishing all of YOU a productive week. Feel free to borrow my muse...

  1. Hm. I hadn't seen that trailer before... Heard of the show but didn't really know what it was. Looks good! But then, Heroes was a great show in the beginning, so hopefully it'll be similar...

    And yes, we all need a little kick in the butt!

    1. Kyle - I'm excited about anything Kiefer to be honest. LOL

  2. I remember Ian from Lost. He rocked!

    1. Funny, I DON'T remember him in Lost, but I only watched the first season.
