Happy Friday Video (10/8/10)


I don't know what they're feeding the writers over at True Blood, but Alan Ball MUST be rubbing off on them all over there, simply because this monologue showcases some of the finest television writing to date.  Although, Alexander Woo's writing wouldn't be half as convincing if it wasn't for the acting of one Denis O'Hare, an actor whom I've had limited but positive exposure to over the past couple years.  The way he twists from bloodthirsty tyrant to cheerful newsreader is convincing, and it's probably one of my favorite moments from Season 3.  So here, with your Happy Friday Video, is Russell Edgington: Vampire King of Missisippi.

However, for those of you who are out there saying, "Where's the music, Mike?!", I have a video for you too.  This week's closing selection is "We No Speak Americano", a remix of the Italian classic "Tu Vuo Fa' L'Americano" courtesy of Yolanda Be Cool and D-Cup.  It's been blowing up the radio waves, and I can't help but love the old/new school mashups.  I'm a child of two worlds, it clearly shows.  Happy Friday, everyone.
