Minotaurs

For my Greek and Roman mythology class, we had to know who a certain person or creature was. Anyway, when I was looking up what a minotaur was in the dictionary that we had to get, it mentioned that the name of the original minotaur was Asterius. I found it interesting because in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, the main minotaur was named Asterius. Personally, I think that the movie people purposely did that. Anyway, I just found it to be interesting.

Chilly Down From Labyrinth

I was watching Labyrinth recently and saw the part with the song Chilly Down. It kinda reminded me of the music from the Beach Boys. And because of that, it reminded me of songs that surfers might listen to. Doesn’t it sound like surfer music? I just found it to be funny.

Music Groups

I was just thinking back to my post on the nostalgic stuff. It made me think back to the music groups from the late ’90s and the early 2000s. I noticed that there were a lot more groups that had males and females in them. Case in point would the A*Teens and S Club 7. But not, it seems like the musicians nowadays are either solo acts or all-one-gender groups. Anyway, I find it interesting as to how music groups change over time.

John Winchester’s Journal

I was watching Bloody Mary from the first season of Supernatural and it briefly mentioned John’s journal. That made me think. I have hardly seen the journal in seasons 3-5. I wonder what happened to it. Did Sam and Dean lost it? But then, why would they lost it when it’s their father’s most prized possession? Is it possible that Sam and Dean gave it to Bobby for safe keeping? I don’t know.

Top 10 Loved Vampires

I was watching E!’s show 10 Vampires We Love shortly after I came home from watching New Moon. The show was a countdown of the vampires that the people of E! like. I’ll include the list at the end of this post. Anyway, I have a bone to pick with who they chose to be on the list. I noticed that the list didn’t include, in my opinion, a variety of vampires, and the fact that all, except one, of the vampires are from movies or tv shows that came out within the last ten years. Anyway, what I mean by the lack of variety is that four of the vampires came from two different sources. I find it biased like how this post is. The reason that I have a problem is that they didn’t include other vampires like Henry Fitzpatrick from Blood Ties, Mick St. John from Moonlight or any of the vampires from the Vampire Chronicles or The Lost Boys. I don’t think it’s right to put a relatively unknown vampire like Santinico Pandemonium or Dracula from Dracula 2000 on a list like 10 Vampires We Love when there are better qualified vampires out there.

10. Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore
9. Ashley Greene as Alice Cullen
8. David Boreanaz as Angel
7. Stephen Moyer as Bill Compton
6. Selma Hayek as Santanico Pandemonium
5. Gerard Butler as Dracula in Dracula 2000
4. Wesley Snipes as Blade
3. Kate Beckinsale as Selene
2. Alexander Skarsgaard as Eric Northman
1. Robert Pattinson as Edward Cullen
