My friend is moving. Away. Again.
When I first got the email I was: Then I was all: But then I thought about being friendzies and having our puppy playtimes and and then…. Then I got myself together and thought, “No, this is what she has to do to be happy. And I can’t help but love her for it.” And now it is time for the little birdie to fly far far away. And, always and...
Reason I couldn't give a crap about season 2 of...
Well agreed upon diva ranking of the 90s: Celine Dion Mariah Carey Christina Aguilera Britney Spears If Mariah hadn’t signed with AI, Britney may have had a shot (but let’s be honest, Demi Lovato pretty much sealed that deal). When two higher ranking divas have their own shows, one is within their rights to reject the clearly desperate efforts of a third. And I can’t...
Hulk need more personal space.
Down, but not out
Closers normally pitch one inning. That night, Rivera navigated his way through a supremely tense ninth inning. And then the 10th. And then, with the score still tied, the 11th. “It was always a battle,” Rivera said. “It was a beautiful game.” In the bottom of the 11th, Yankees third baseman Aaron Boone won the game, and the series, with a home run. And if he hadn’t? “Tell you what,” Rivera...
Cereal Cannibalistic Tendencies
People ask why kids are out of control these days, and I believe it is because we allow demented things like this to be shown on television. THE CINNAMON TOAST CRUNCH is eating his own kind!!! And don’t even get me started on the licking himself for bait. WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN??!?! Say what you will about sex and violence, but these are the types of subliminal messages we need to be more...
Great Moments in Songwriting
The first of what will undoubtedly become a series of series of collections of items that have a common thread, this one being GREAT MOMENTS IN SONGWRITING. “But it’s time to exercise these demons These motherfu@&#%$ are doing jumping jacks now!” -Eminem, “Not Afraid” The mental image of Satan’s henchmen doing calisthenics is really motivational.
If any of you watch this clip and do not react as Anthony does to Austin’s description of his line, I’m not sure you fully understand what it means to be human. A perfect little cut to a reaction to help soothe my pain as I broke up with Mondo. Yeah that’s right, I did. But holy tacos someone at PR at least did some good logging to get this done!
In another example of the little things that make the mundane something special: THE GOOD WIFE is procedural in its structuring and the case for the episode is established in the cold open. But there are only so many ways one can have a bunch of lawyers be introduced to a case. Which means you then have to start tweaking the little things to create a WTF rewind worthy moment. And by golly, they...
Andy goes down...
We all know that Anderson Cooper’s giggle has the power to heal the sick, end wars and bring families together. But I am starting to think that might just be the tip of the Quirkberg. Exhibit 1: Andy and the Desk Chair. I believe it’s the head tilt that makes it art.
Mist Mist Mist
I am not ashamed to admit that I am a slow comer to PARKS AND RECREATION. I was gung ho even before it started but oof did it take a long time to get going good. So now I am immersing myself in it. This scene made me pound the desk. It’s a great example of (a) How little it takes to get me going; (b) How you can sum a character up in the littlest of gestures. Leslie has nothing but the best...
I can feel you judging me...
I haven’t been a regular AMERICAN IDOL watcher since Paula left, but when I heard someone was getting the boot, I made a special effort to watch. And I am glad I did because I would have missed one of the best lessons in body language I have ever received.
Here you will find things that I think are awesome. Awesome good, awesome bad, awesome inappropriate, probably not awesome seriousness, though perhaps occasionally. However, seriously awesome? Always. Always.
