I think we're at our best by the flicker by the light of the TV set.

Vampire Diaries Execs Search for Klaus (I vote Brody)

Entertainment Weekly’s resident Vampire Diaries fanatic, Mandi Bierly (who should hands down be my best friend), recently announced on EW.com that the show’s producers are currently searching long and hard to find the perfect actor to portray the character of Klaus - the oldest, meanest and most dangerous vampire in the Diaries world.

Viewers (like yours truly) are eagerly anticipating Klaus’ introduction on the show. While we haven’t yet met the malicious fanger, we know he’s nastier than the stank of the garbage I just removed from my apartment. And that, my lovely readers, is a vile stank.

Apparently, well over 100 actors have read for the role, but no one has been cast.

If you check out the comment section following Mandi’s article, tons of readers posted who their desired Klaus would be. While many of the suggestions are fun (ie: Jason Dohring, Charlie Hunnam, James Franco, Jared Leto...) my favorite submission is a geeky chic blast from my beloved past. That’s right. Some genius reader suggested ADAM BRODY for the role of Klaus. AKA Seth Cohen. AKA love of my 17-year-old self’s life.

Klaus in skinny jeans and Death Cab tees? I’m all for it!

While execs from the show say they’re searching worldwide for the ideal actor (and I will admit an accented Klaus could totally work for me) and will most likely choose an unknown, Brody would continue Diaries status of hip, cool awesomeness. Maybe Brody isn’t the toughest dude, but if you saw him in Jennifer’s Body you know he can pull off creepy and sadistic (the guyliner helped). His sarcasm and wit alone would suffice. I’d love to see Damon try to keep up!

Steven Tyler Blows Roof Off Kennedy Center Honoring McCartney

This post is in thanks to my dear mother. During one of our morning chats on my walk to the subway, she told me about the Kennedy Center Honors special. She only watched of course because the love of her life my father Sir Paul McCartney was among those honored.

In case you don't know, the Kennedy Center Honors is an annual honor given to those in the performing arts for their lifetime of contributions to American culture. Obviously, Paul's recognition is way past due. He shared the evening with Oprah Winfrey, Merle Haggard, Jerry Herman and Bill T. Jones.

Mom couldn't get over how boring the entire production was - that is, until Steven Tyler took the stage as the final act to pay homage to the Beatle. I'm sure, like me, you're wondering why in the hell the Aerosmith frontman was the chosen one for the dedication. The answer is beyond me, but I'll take it because Tyler nailed it.

Performing the last few songs off Abbey Road, Tyler rocked the Kennedy Center. Paul looked pretty pleased, as did Oprah and a randomly spotted John Lithgow. See for yourself below:

You may say I'm a dreamer...

Tonight my roommate and I honored John Lennon, as today marks the 30th anniversary of his tragic death.

We gathered our Lennon memorabilia from around our apartment and set up a shrine, so to speak. We lit all the candles and tea lights we could find. Then we set up my iHome and played all four versions of "Imagine" that are on my iPod: Lennon's album version, a live version, the Glee version, and of course, GaGa's rendition.

I even put on my John and Yoko shirt for the brief occasion.

Rest in peace, John Lennon.
