tv im addicted to lately

lafayette from true blood.
true blood. we're about to start season dos asap. but, im really really hoping lafayette didnt get killed off. still loving sookie. still not loving bill. loving the 'i wanna do bad things to you' theme song by jace everett. love that they play gillian welch sometimes while rolling credits. hoping tara doesnt get too mixed up with shape-shifter pig woman. bout everyone has been killed off, so im excited for new characters, ie the new lil vamp that bill was 'the maker' of. but still, lafayette better be alive.

this is one of my fav food network shows, next to sister paula. neil got this cookbook for our home today! each episode consists of three interesting-as-all-hell foodplaces stretched out across america. these are 'homey' soulfood-types of foodplaces. in host guy fieri's words: 'the show is about capturing americana, and it embodies what food business is in the united states. [...] to have a chance to recognize these family institutions, these cultural epicenters, is unbelievable. i'm more honored to be in their presence. they say thank you so much for coming, and i say thank you so much for existing, because this is what america is about, the opportunity and the cultural bridges.' there are three foodplaces in phoenix listed in fieri's book--roadtrip!
