A favorite wallpaper ~ Alex O'Loughlin as Mick St John

We have tons and tons of wonderful photos of Alex O'Loughlin as Mick St John. Can the man take a bad picture?! ha! Remembering faves due to the anniversary brought this image to mind. It is from Moonlight's Sleep Beauty episode (#1x10).... another favorite of mine :) This Mick photograph struck me so that I had to have it as wallpaper. I thought I would repost it to share with you in honor of yesterday's premiere anniversary.

Video ~ Mick St John & Beth Turner's first kiss

Thinking about the first anniversary of Moonlight's television premiere has brought to mind many of my favorite moments from the show. In this video, we see Mick & Beth's 1st & 2nd kisses. Definitely one of my all time top scenes! When Alex O'Loughlin flashes that incredible smile at the end ~ Oooooooooooo my! Actually, he is mesmerizing through out the entire scene. I remember the impact it had on me while watching the Arrested Development episode (#1x05) last Fall. Still does!

Vampires & Slayers ~ Alex O'Loughlin audio interview from NYCC

Vampires and Slayers website has posted another great Moonlight related audio interview. This time, it is Ed's chat with Alex O'Loughlin at the NY Comic Con on April 20th, 2008.

Note : You must be a member of the site in order to listen to Alex O'Loughlin's interview. If you don't mind, please let them know that I sent ya by putting my name ~ Kandyegirl (like you didn't know *grin*) ~ as the answer to "How did you find out about Vampires & Slayers?" Thanks :)

by Edward Gross ~ Editor of the Damned

Last spring both Alex O'Loughlin and Jason Dohring appeared at New York Comic Con to promote Moonlight, which was yet to return for its final four episodes. At that time, V&S editor Edward Gross caught up with both actors (the interview with Jason has previously been posted here), and what follows is his conversation with Alex O'Loughlin. Note that Jason was sitting next to him at the time doing a separate interview -- and pay attention early on to Alex's discussion about his pizza, which is amusing. The conversation covers a number of topics, most notably the sequence in which Josef turns Mick back into a vampire.

Possible US release for Moonlight's Season One DVD

TV Guide has more news about the possible release of Alex O'Loughlin's tv series, Moonlight, on DVD.........

DVD News and Reviews

For Moonlight Fans, a "Bite" of Good News
by Matt Mitovich & David Lambert

People want their Mick at night... and in the daytime... and, heck, whenever else they please. And yet thus far, the avid fans of CBS' short-lived Moonlight have been frustrated by the lack of a release date for a DVD set. Further exacerbating the sorry sitch is the fact that a November Region 2 (aka European) release was announced while Statesiders were left in limbo.

But the long wait may be about to end for us Yanks. Earlier this week in an online chat with DVD enthusiasts, reps for Warner Home Video advised Moonlight fans to "stay tuned for good news you can really sink your teeth into in the next month."

The good news: It sounds like a firm U.S. DVD release soon will be announced. The bad news: Dollars to donuts, the discs you are so blood-thirsty for won't be on shelves in time for the holidays, but rather just before or after New Year's.

Kandye's puppy tale

It has been rainy and overcast in the city due to the edges of the hurricane. That causes night to fall early. It was becoming heavy twilight when Tommmmmmy dashed off to grab our dinner before True Blood tonight. As he approached a busy intersection (4 lanes on all sides ~ crossed by railroad tracks), he noticed cars swerving and slamming on their brakes. Accident? Crazy driver? No.... a small, dark figure cowered in the middle of traffic.

Inching first one way and then the other, but never reaching safety. A confused puppy faltered while cars honked, skidded and sped around him. My sweet Tommmmmy swooped to his rescue! He threw on the emergency brake & jumped out into the street. Other thoughtful drivers stopped to block the traffic in each direction so that he could reach the frightened puppy without being hit himself. There were many smiles of relief. One lady rolled down her window just to yell thanks!

No momma dog or other pups to be found.

Once they were finally safe in the warm, dry truck, Tommmmy called me. When I answered, the first thing he said was ~ "We have a new addition to our family!"

I want to introduce you all to Jasper :) We do not know what kinda dog he is, aside from adorable. Any ideas? Click on the photos above for a closer look.

Moonlight Fan Video ~ The Very Thought of You by Billie Holiday

Silvervintage has created a new Moonlight fan video using music by one of my favorite singers.... favorite voices.... Billie Holiday. The clip uses great scenes from the series. I will let Silvervintage describe the idea behind making this particular video ~

Moonlight (Classic Film Style): The Very Thought of You

Moonlight, the old-fashioned way.

We thought we'd try to capture some of the old film style of Moonlight that they liked to show from time to time. We used the main cast, but mostly focused on Mick and Beth.

Song: The Very Thought of You by Billie Holiday

Mick St. John: Alex O'Loughlin
Beth Turner: Sophia Myles
Josef Kostan: Jason Dohring
Coraline: Shannyn Sossamon
Sarah Whitley:??? We couldn't find the name of the actress.

Well anyway, we hope you enjoy the video to one of our favorite songs. Besides, who doesn't want to see Mick as the chivalrous vampire?

Hey Nielsen! ranking system has changed

Several of the great fans who keep Moonlight & its cast at the top of Hey Nielsen's rankings have emailed new information to me. Apparently, the way the website handles its ratings has changed. The show and stars need opinions now more than ever! It is also important to leave comments and react to other people's opinions.

Right now, Moonlight is still #1.... that is due to the continued dedication of the fans. However, Alex O'Loughlin has fallen from #2 to #3, and the rest of the cast completely out of the Top Ten. Just think ~ you get to tell everyone what you think about our show, Sophia Myles, Alex O'Loughlin, Shannyn Sossamon, Jason Dohring, Brian J White, David Blue and Eric Winter while helping to maintain its visibility :)

Update : I just found out that my Alex O'Loughlin fan blog has its own listing on Hey Nielsen! WOW! Not sure how this happened. They did not contact me, so I don't know if the website staff simply picked my page or if the fans nominated it. Either way.... it is a great honor. Thank you for all your wonderful support :) It means a great deal to me!

No date for debut of Alex O'Loughlin's new show

Speculating about Alex O'Loughlin's new tv show ~ when it will premiere.... what format it will have.... if he will be the lead or part of an ensemble cast, etc ~ has been occupying entertainment reporters & fans alike ever since his CBS talent holding deal announcement. TV Guide's, Matt Mitovich, published one such question that he received on the subject.

I think I will use one of my fave photos of Alex to go with this post :)

Today's News: Our Take

Got any news on what the new CBS show starring Moonlight cutie Alex O'Loughlin will be about, and when it will start? — Susan

Matt : Would that I did, if only because it would make me the most popular news blogger on the Web. Alas, insiders tell me it may be a while before Alex O's new gig is a go, seeing as new series development is an "inexact science." It's simply hard to predict what project he'll get attached to, or when it will come to be.

LA Times Entertainment ~ Vampires : Sexy or not sexy?

A Los Angeles Times feature asks if Vampires are sexy or not. Easy answer! Ooooo sooooo sexy :> They have included Mick St John as an example of that... and also lament Moonlight's cancelation.

Vampires: Sexy or not sexy?
By Jevon Phillips, Stephanie Lysaght, Denise Martin and Patrick Kevin Day, Times Staff Writers

The debate over vampires as heartthrob vs. heart-devourer is old but still valid. For every studly Dracula, rising out of his coffin like Hugh Hefner (back in the 1960s), there's another bloodsucker with giant fangs and creepy eyes and gore-encrusted claws. Just last year we had the horrific "30 Days of Night" and this year we have smoldering Bill from HBO's "True Blood" and, of course, the doe-eyed Edward of "Twilight."

But are they really hot, or horrific? And where do they stack up against the many other bloodsuckers who have slunk across the screen? Our crack team of experts ponders the sex-appeal (or lack thereof) of creatures of the night.


We’d be a little ticked too. Mick St. John (Alex O'Loughlin) was turned into a vampire on his wedding night. By the bride. Not cool. But 55 years later, he’s still smoking hot and fighting crime. It’s a shame CBS didn’t have the heart to keep him, and his show “Moonlight,” around.,0,6624038.photogallery?index=11

Quick glimpse of Alex O'Loughlin on The Shield tonight

The new... and sadly, final... season (seven) of the Shield premiered tonight. It began with a "previously seen" montage of scenes. Who was in the very first one?!? Alex O'Loughlin :) It showed a moment from season six with Detective Kevin Hiatt & Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis). Great way to start the show. *grin*
