Stabby, stabby!


We all have our little morbid fascinations and one of mine are serial killers. There are nights when I would peruse websites online and read up on killers throughout history. I don't do this EVERY night... just once in a blue moon when something perks my interest again. When I heard of Showtime's new show, Dexter, I wanted to watch it soooo bad...

But. I'm always a late-comer when it comes to new things so I didn't get to watch the first season till this year (when Netflix placed the entire first season on their watch instantly section. Whoop! Though it was a bitch trying to update my media player on my desktop until I finally managed to update my laptop's so it would place netflix videos. Fuck you, Netflix, and your Windows Media Player 11 requirement).

Now, I have joined the not-so-massive-maybe?-legion of Dexter lovers.

Michael C. Hall does an amazing job with this character. Yes, there is something very sick about endearing a serial killer... but if you can resist Dexter, then I almost wonder if there's something wrong with you! It is a unique experience to sympathize with a killer– but Dexter proves it is possible. He is a killer with a code of conduct and he doesn't have 'innocent' victims. Just his own fellow serial killers. He's a sort of turncoat on his own brotherhood because he's protecting the other side from people like him.

I mean we all have an urge to kill that guy who cut you off the freeway... but you won't act on it.

... Right?

we are purtiful

We are self-proclaimed girl-GEEKS who needed a place to write about it! We don't really do anything special with our lives, but we do enjoy the occasional comic book or fantasy film. Also, the occasional pie. With ice cream. Yeah. Ice cream.
