Don’t say I never gave you anything!
A few months back, Dawson’s Creek’s James Van Der Beek took a running joke that fans of the show had about his Ugly Cry Face . . .
. . . and turned it into comedic GOLD (not to mention, a major marketing opportunity)! Sure, The Beek may never be hired to act in a movie where has character has to cry, ever again . . .
But, with all the cash he’s raking in from those Dawson’s Creek syndication rights . . . (and all the good karma he’s building up, by helping bloggers like me find The Perfect GIF, when we’re too lazy to actually express our feelings in actual WORDS), James “don’t need NO STINKIN’” CRYBABY MOVIE! He’s set for LIFE!
(But, seriously, if you haven’t checked out JamesVanDerMemes yet, do it NOW. It truly is a Blogger’s Best Friend!)
OK . . . OK . . . I know what you are thinking. You are probably saying to yourself right now, “I clicked on this post, because I thought I was going to get to read about DAMON SALVATORE! So, what’s with all this James Van Der CRAP?”
Patience, my Fangbanging Friend! All will become clear, in just a moment . . .
You see, this morning, I was reading an awesome, Damon Salvatore centric blog post, written by my fabulous pal from Down Under, Cherie, when I came upon one of my favorite Damon Salvatore GIFs . . .
THIS got me to thinking about ALL the fantastic Damon Salvatore GIFS I’ve managed to collect, since I started recapping The Vampire Diaries, about a year ago. And thinking about THAT, got me to thinking about how Ian Somerhalder (who plays Damon on the show, DUH!) could probably learn a thing or two from Mr. Van Der Beek, about how to convert his natural GIF-making ability into Cold Hard Cash . . .
(Cash that can be used to benefit the Ian Somerhalder Foundation, perhaps?)
So, without further adieu, TV Recappers Anonymous proudly presents: Damon Salvatore Memes, a series of Damon-y GIFS that will be sure to satisfy all of your
sexual emotional and blogging needs . . .
Greetings from Damon Salvatore
Often times, when you are blogging, there are instances where you want to offer up a little “Howdy” to your loyal readers. After all, sharing your thoughts with like-minded folks is what blogging is all about, right? Fortunately, we have Damon Salvatore to help you do just that . . .
Now, there are many ways to say “hello” to your friends. You can wave . . .
You can give them the oh so cool, ”Nod and Point” . . .
Or, for those “close” friends, you can blow them a kiss . . .
Not bad, right? But saying hello to your blogging buddies, is just the tip of the iceberg. Damon can help you out with so much MORE!
Damon Salvatore Helps You Get Laid . ..
Flirting through blogs and e-mails can be a tricky business. Since the person you are trying to put the moves on can’t actually SEE you, there’s a good chance some of the subtleties of your language might get lost in translation. When this happens, the best case scenario is that your overtures of affection are misunderstood or ignored. Worst case scenario? You end up looking like a TOTAL Creepy Perv.
Thankfully, with the help of Damon Salvatore, flirting is easy . . .
After all, no self-respecting love interest would be able to resist the Eye Thing . . .
. . . or the Compelling Stare . . .
Want to tell your crush how dreamy they look? Katherine and Damon can do it for you!
Perhaps, you want your crush to CALL you, so that you can continue your flirtation over the phone . . .
Or, maybe, you want to give your lover an electronic kiss on the cheek . . .
Not at the Cheek Kissing stage of your relationship, yet? Try a chaste Forehead Kiss . . .
Awww, you know what? Screw chastity! Go in for the Tongue Kiss! You only live once, right? (Or, if you happen to be a vampire, you only live, FOREVER!)
But, perhaps, this isn’t just your crush. Maybe, it’s your significant other . . . someone you’ve already kissed, many times. Perhaps, you’ve recently come to the realization that you don’t want to kiss anyone else, ever again. This person is the one who’s lips you want to remain locked with, for the rest of your life. (Well, except for when you are eating . . .).
You LOVE this person! And what better way to tell someone you love them then with a not-particularly-large pixelated computer image!
Who am I kidding? This portion of the post isn’t about LOVE? It’s about SEX, right? So, here are some “Let’s Have Sex” GIFs for you, courtesy of Damon Salvatore. (Some of them are pretty literal. For others, you will have to use your imagination.)
And, my personal favorite . . .
Phew, that got me all hot and bothered! Please excuse me, while I take another shower . . .
OK . . . I’m back . . .
You know, love isn’t all Hearts and Roses. It can be pretty painful too. Fortunately, Damon is here to help you express your Relationship Angst . . .
Damon Salvatore Can Help You Heal a Broken Heart . . .
Have you just been rejected?
Do you feel like your heart has just been ripped out of your chest?
Damon Salvatore feels your pain! And he can help you express it, too! Whether your sadness is of the quiet, brooding and soulful variety . . .
. . . or you consider yourself more a student of the “Let It All Out” School of Emotional Outbursts . . .
Damon has just the GIF for you!
Worry not, with Damon feeling your miserable emotions FOR YOU, you’ll be dancing in NO TIME!
And if not . . . well . . . getting totally and completely wasted, and numbing your mind with booze, is always an option!
Damon Can Help You Cyber Bully (Not that I advocate cyber bullying, because I don’t, Parent Teacher Council! )
You know that moment when a despised television character, who you THOUGHT was gone for good, suddenly makes a re-appearance on your favorite show?
And they start mucking things up for ALL your favorite characters and Ships?
Well, sometimes, that happens in REAL life too!
Below are some healthy ways to vent your frustration, which, hopefully, will prevent you from going into a rage and ending up in jail. Might I suggest some idle threats . . .
How about getting some vicarious thrills, by watching Damon hurt someone on television, and PRETENDING that it’s YOU doing the hurting, with the Person You Hate as the unsuspecting victim. . .
And, hey, if anyone ever accuses you of Cyber Bullying, because you just so happened to use a few of these images to . . . get your message across? My recommendation? LIE!
Here are some other Damon Salvatore GIFs that you may find helpful in your blogging future . . .
