“Mozzy”

Pronunciation: moh-zee

Meaning: Mosquito

Usage example: “The mozzies are heaps bad this time of year”

One of my favorite mozzies is the one in the title sequence of Dexter on Showtime. Is anyone else an avid Dexter fan like me? The title sequence goes through the motions of a normal morning routine, but with close up images and exquisitely dark undertones that suggest bloody murder. So subtle. The color treatment is just beautiful.

Another title sequence that I can’t peel my eyes away from? True Blood. Disturbingly beautiful, it leaves you wanting more. Here’s a video of the making of that title sequence by the geniuses over at HBO. The interviewee tells the story best (WARNING: Video contains brief nudity):
