It's 4 am, I've been awake for over an hour and I can't get Toby Keith's "I Love This Bar" out of my head. A 7 am flight to Nashville should do the trick.

The trailer for "Machete Kills" has hit the tubes and to be honest I think I might want to make a baby with this movie. And not just because of Sofia Vergara. Well mostly because of Sofia Vergara. I really like Sofia Vergara. A lot.

NBC has decided to pick up "Hannibal" for a second season despite lackluster ratings in my household. The show got a 0 out of 3 viewership in my home after the first episode sat on my DVR for close to two weeks before I finally said, "I'm never going to watch this" and then deleted it. I don't know what those TV big wigs are thinking.

Michael C. Hall has been confirmed to be playing the lead in Jim Mickle's big screen adaptation of "Cold In July". The story follows a man who finds himself in hot water after he kills an ex-con's son. I like to think that Michael C. Hall and C. Thomas Howell are really good friends and do everything together. But that's just me.

I haven't seen "Demons" or "Demons 2" since I was just a wee lad but I do remember enjoying them a great deal. And now I can relive those watercolor memories thanks to the folks at Synapse because they're releasing both flicks on Blu-Ray later this year in a limited edition steel case. Why they hell do you need these films in a steel case? I have no idea but they're chock full of extras and someday could be worth 3 to 4 dollars more of less than you originally paid. Get em while they're hot.

In Real People News: 

The Maryland kid who got suspended from school for shaping his Pop-Tart into a gun has been given a lifetime NRA membership. So that all worked out for the best I guess. I look forward to hearing of his prison sentence in 5 to 10 years.

Now I don't condone driving drunk at all but if you're going to do it you should probably do it like this guy in New Mexico who got into a car crash while being under the influence and having sex with a woman. But seriously, don't do it.

Trouble in Miami kids. It looks like Showtime and Michael C. Hall have yet to come to an agreement on a contract to extend Hall's run as "Dexter" two more seasons. Seems that Hall wants a shit load more money and Showtime only wants to give him a crap load. It's getting pretty heated. If an agreement can't be reached it looks like season 6, which premiered this past weekend could be the last.

The list of people who want nothing to do with "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" continues to grow with one Miss Blake Lively now passing on the leading role. Natalie Portman, Emma Stone and Mia Wasikowska have also given a big "aww hell no" to the role. I don't want to jinx it but this sounds like wonderful news for Monica Keena. It's only a matter of time before she gets offered the role.

A bunch of new stills have found their way onto writer/director Darren Bousman's twitter page for "The Barrens", a new flick that follows a family on a camping trip where they run into the Jersey Devil. Hunky "True Blood" star Stephen Moyer takes lead in this one along with Mia Kirshner, who I don't know but from her IMDB picture I assume is a ball buster. I mean that in the best way possible.

"The Lost Coast Tapes" is a new found footage flick that follows a group who encounter the one and only Bigfoot. The forest beast not the monster truck. Although that would be pretty cool if it was just a bunch of kids being chased around by a giant truck. Anyway this isn't that. It's about the big hairy guy from the beef jerky commercials. I think we've gone off topic though. Take a look at the new poster for the flick. It's got a guy impaled on a tree. Grave Digger would probably be scarier anyway.

In Real People News: 

It's Halloween time kids and that means all kinds of creative lawn decorations. Like this one in North Carolina of a fake body stuffed under a riding lawn mower. Of course people in North Carolina are pretty dumb so a bunch of people called 911 when they saw it and a big to do broke out. Silly hicks.

Good news, Canada! You can now legally dress up like a woman, watch Simpsons porn and have sex with a Cabbage Patch Doll hooked up to a vacuum cleaner without fear of legal persecution. Long live freedom!

Hugh Jackman may be looking to turn in his claws for a set of torture tools as rumors start to leak that he is now attached to the upcoming thriller, "Prisoners".

Clive Barker is back behind the keyboard again, this time with a new short story collection titled "Black is the Devil's Rainbow: Tales of a Journeyman".

Michael C. Hall sits down with Entertainment Weekly to discuss The series finale of "Dexter" as well the future of the series.

In Real People News: 

A Brooklyn man is stabbed to death on the elliptical machine at his local gym, apparently for not letting the thugs have their turn. You'd think all that stabbing would keep them in shape. Guess not.

I'm not necessarily saying that Marijuana is safer than alcohol... I'm just saying that a high dude would never burn down his house because his wife wouldn't give him a cigarette. He'd probably just take a nap and hope she'd changed her mind by the time he woke up.

"Dexter" Season 3 DVD Set

For you DVD Collectors and "Dexter" fans out there, season 3 is now out on DVD and ready to grace your book shelf.

Just like the previous two sets, "Dexter Season 3" clocks in with pretty much the same package. You get all 12 episodes, a few cast interviews and a few extra episodes of other Showtime series such as "The United States of Tara" and the "Tudors".
