When Linus Met Sally and Other Famous Fictional Couples

VALENTINE'S DAY
You have to be pretty hard-hearted to not get a least a little lump in your thought when you think of some of fictional couples. But have you ever stopped to think just how these crazy lovebirds ever got together? The answers may surprise you.

Linus Van Pelt and Sally Brown
According to the comic strip, Charlie Brown’s sister, Sally was born on May 26, 1959 where Charlie marked the occasion by passing out chocolate cigars to his friends. She grew up quickly. She took her first steps on August 22, 1960 and she fell in love with Linus, Lucy’s brother, on the next day. It was love at first sight, at least on her part.

The Vampire Documentary You Have Been Waiting For

Review of the film "What We Do in the Shadows."
Unison Films
If you are a fan of vampire movies (not those like Twilight but more like the classic Dracula) and mock documentaries (like Best in Show or Waiting for Guffman), What We Do in the Shadows is for you. This mockumentary follows the lives of four vampires of various ages living together. Together, they face the same struggles most roommates do like who is going to do the dishes and who is going to sweep up the skeleton bones.

Living in New Zealand, Viago (Taika Waititi) is the chatty spokesperson of the quartet. He doesn’t like getting blood on his antique couch. Petyr (Ben Fransham) is the oldest of the four and resembles Nosferatu. He doesn’t talk much and spends most of his time in the basement. Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) is a lady killer and Deacon (Jonathan Brugh) has a human servant, (Ethel Robinson), who desperately wants to be turned into a vampire. Instead, she ends up ironing Deacon’s clothes.
