SYTYCD Results

This is I think the first night that I saw Mark's weird-ass dancing as cool and quirky, and not annoying and weird-ass. It was a good choice of song.

Joshua's solo left me in the usual wide-eyed wonder. AND NO MORE BRACES!!! YAY JOSHUA!

There is no greater joy in life than a little kid hip-hop dancer. NO GREATER JOY! That kid was awesome! AND HE IS SIX! I'm getting Owen enrolled in hip-hop classes next week when I go visit him.

Bye-bye: Chelsie. That's OK, it had to be someone, but she's just sodamncute. Mark. YAY TWITCH MADE IT IN!!!

I was fine once I could breathe a sigh of relief that Katee and Joshua were safe. But this is going to be THE GREATEST SYTYCD FINALE EVER!!!!

After last night's bit where Cat put in Twitch's gold teeth ("spit and all") and tonight after she picked up that little kid to interview him, I am prepared to say Cat Deeley is the Best Host on Television. Not just the Best Wonky-Eyed Host on Television.

Best Dance Ever?

Finally remembered to find this video. Not the greatest quality video, but certainly the best dance of last night.

He has no real dance training, people! He's a hip-hop dancer!

BBX: Eviction

I love when people stir up some S when they know they're getting evicted. Yay Angie. WOAH JERRY is a fighter!!! And I gotta love that people don't back down just because he's old, they really give it right back. No pity for the old!

Earthquake Safety by Jessie: 1. Run into the middle of the yard. 2. Remove shirt.

Keesha thinks her housemates "underested" her and saw her as the ditzy blonde. I didn't. Until you used the word "underested" instead of "underestimated".

Evicted: Angie. Why wouldn't they want Jessie out if he's A) being a dick and B) kind of a threat in physical competitions?

America's Player is back. Kind of. America voted for Dan to be AP and he accepted. So he's AP for a week and gets $20k. That's a good amount of cash.

I hate long-ass, endurance Head of Household competitions that can last all night. They make me burn with the desire to look up the results in advance of the next show.

SYTYCD Performances

OMG, how did we get down to 6 dancers already? THIS IS SO SAD! This show is almost over!! Noooo! (Seriously, that totally snuck up on me.)

(Karen - I HAVE to watch the finale at your house next Thursday - DEAL WITH IT! (Please.))

1. Courtney and Mark - Viennese Waltz. They're the worst boy and girl left, right? Kinda dull for me, dawg.

2. Katee and Joshua - reunited YAY - Contemporary. AMAZING! He picks her up and throws her around like it's nothing. We rewound that one. They're the best boy and girl left, right?

3. Chelsie and Twitch - Mambo. Unfortunately, it seemed like they were off-rhythm half of the time. That's his fault. She was great. 10 bucks says they throw him a bone and give them Hip Hop for the second performance.

4. Courtney and Mark - Jazz. That was an exciting, kickass routine and they were really good! Still the worst, but, you know, really good!

5. Katee and Joshua - Paso Doble. Of course they were going to put Joshua's big butt in tight pants again. GOOD LORD! They have this thing LOCKED UP!!! AND HE IS GOING TO WIN IT ALL!! AMAZING! Not only did I rewind it, I need to find it on YouTube tomorrow and post it.

6. Chelsie and Twitch - Hip Hop. Told you so. It actually would have been cooler if he had done some real, hard-hitting hip hop. But Tabitha and Napoleon do those great humorous, lyrical hip hop routines.

I am so obsessed with Tabitha and Napoleon. I had a dream last night that I was hanging out at their house in DC and their house was so awesome. They were my friends. I loved that dream. I was so happy when I woke up.

Project Runway

Am I the only one who says "Hi" to Heidi every week when she comes out and says "Hello" to the designers? Anyone?

I hate Stella. HATE. Her and her "leathah". Seriously, Suede, STOP with the third person. It's disgusting. Seriously, Blayne, STOP with the "licious" thing. It's not catching on. You are not fierce like Christian. Give up.

The designers had to take inspiration from New York at night. Sigh. And Keith picks a picture of a wet, stepped-on magazine. WTF? Dress: fugly. It looked like a wet, stepped-on magazine.

Jerell made an amazing dress in the amount of time everyone else made theirs! Woah! How did he not end up in the top?

Leanne's was SO GOOD, as much as I may not want to admit it because she is SO DULL. Jennifer's was crap.

Winner: Kenley! I was kind of surprised, but YAY BECAUSE I WORSHIP HER!!!

Bye-bye: Emily. Bummer. I thought Jennifer's was worse, AND she had less potential to be good.

Quotes of the episode: "Can you move your boob up a little?" and of course Tim Gunn saying, "Holla at cha boy!"

BBX: Power of Veto

Keesha could be my favorite Head of Household because when she's conniving with someone in the HoH room and someone else comes to the door, she has no problem saying, "Come back in 5 minutes." LOL, because then the new person knows they're being talked about.

American television has devolved to the point where ancient torture techniques are now being used as Power of Veto Competitions. Brilliant.

And now I like Jessie because he effed with Libra while they were undergoing Chinese Water Torture. I know she wanted to jump up and strangle him, I'm really surprised she didn't. Plus he's a freaking high-pressure salesman, working to persuade Keesha to nominate Libra. Good stuff.

A plane with a banner flew overhead and I couldn't read it. Memphis said it said Libra and someone else were liars and that Steven sent it.

Memphis lost it because Jerry called him a womanizer. HOLY CRAP! Womanizing dick. Defensive much?

They're bringing back America's Player on - what? a rotating, weekly basis? Weird.

Winner of Power of Veto: Keesha. She didn't use it. Damn Keesha and her word and not nominating Libra. THAT'S BS!!!!!

What Happens When The Three Funniest Men in the World Get Together

I love Keith Olbermann, Joel McHale, and Simon Pegg too much. And they were all together on the last episode of The Soup! YAY!

See you next year, San Diego!

Project Runway: Catching Up On Last Week

OMG I just looked up Kenley's bio and she's from Pompano Beach!!! Like, 20 minutes from me!!!! OMGOMGOMGOMGILOVEHER!!!

Still hate and love the same people. Still don't know who half of them are. Still worship at Kenley's feet.

The models went shopping this week, and they had to use organic fabric. It's amusing what crap the models came back with. All those brown dresses were really horrible.

Guest judge: Natalie Portman and her vegan shoes. Yay!

Winner: Suede and his third-person speech. Ick. Did. Not. Get.

Good-bye: Wesley and his shorts. Whoever he is.

BBX: Catching Up on Last Week

It is beyond pathetic to watch 3 episodes of Big Brother in a row. But what better way to spend the first day back from vacation when you're still feeling brain dead and icky? Because this show (and the people on it) is brain dead and icky.

It's actually not that bad when you can just FF through the competitions and do laundry whilst watching.

Renny loves stirring the pot and getting arguments going. And this is why I now love Renny. In-fighting leads to back-dooring. And back-dooring is the single greatest thing to ever happen to Big Brother! Unfortunately, this Back Door Plan didn't work out, but it's still fun to watch the plotting.

When did Libra turn into a raving lunatic? I liked her at first, but DAMN! Even Jerry called Libra a bitch. LOL!!! The old man is not above immature fighting and confrontations, I love that. Holy S he and Libra really got into it!

Evicted: Steven. "Suck it, bitches." LOL. No more Token Gay. DAMMIT!

Head of Household: Keesha. I like her. And she claims she'll stir things up. If things work out and she back-doors Libra it'll be the Funniest Back-Door Ever!

Nominated: Angie and Jessie.

Greatest Showmance Ever: April and Ollie.

What Is Butters Going To Do?

Several media outlets are reporting the nationwide Irish restaurant chain Bennigan's has shut its doors across the country.

According to the reports, employees were informed early in the morning that they had been fired from their jobs.

SYTYCD: The End of the World

I go away for a week, and of course have to immediately catch up on So You Think You Can Dance the minute I walk in the door. NNNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Not WILL!!!!

The problem with last week is that most of the performances were awesome, and all the dancers are so good now, it's hard to say who should go. Well, Comfort lucked out with getting that hip-hop routine, that's what made her look really good. The only "bad" performance was Comfort and Mark's Foxtrot, so I thought for sure they'd be gone.

But no.

Mark must be getting the Hawaiian vote. Remember that chick Jasmine from American Idol years ago who was Hawaiian and sucked but made it to third place? Those Hawaiians love to call in votes. Mark wasn't even in the Bottom Two - it was Twitch and Will!!! I almost had a heartattack.

To be honest, I'm OK with Will leaving over Twitch. And I think it's the reason he was voted out: the whole Debbie Allen thing. Will clearly already has a great career going, he's a Debbie Allen protege - he doesn't need this show. So when they focused on that on the Performances show, I think that screwed him over.

Comfort left too, which is as it should be.

But Will over Mark? America - this is effed up!

28 July 2008

Wolverine Trailer

It has the quality you'd expect of a video of a screen in a 6,500-seat room at Comic-Con. But it's still money! And you can hear how everyone goes nuts for Gambit.

Comic-Con 2008: Saturday and Sunday

Oops. I ended up puking my guts out the whole afternoon on Saturday. So I missed out on some decent panels. But thank heavens I got to see the important ones: Heroes, Lost, and Terminator: Salvation.

We saw the entire Season 3 premiere of Heroes. And I will simply say that it was AWESOME!!! I loved every second of it, I'm so happy. Unfortunately, that meant not much panel discussion or Q&A, but I'll take it because I'm a bigger fan of instant gratification.

I love that cast so much because they're appreciative of the fans and they enjoy it - half of them were taking pictures and recording the event. It was fun.

The Lost panel mostly involved the Dharma Initiative, another one of these role-playing internet things. I'm not involved enough in the show to care about those. The producers answered lots of questions and then brought out a special guest - Matthew Fox. Of all the people they could have brought. I HATE Matthew Fox almost as much as I hate his character, Jack. He didn't say much, so all was well. And I actually found the producers funny. I've only read bad things about them, but they amused me, they weren't pompous or anything. Maybe they were holding back.

I took a picture of this dude who asked a question. He was dressed like Hurley. Which is easy for him, as apparently all he has to do is wear a green shirt. He got a jug of Dharma Ranch Dressing for asking a question. That was hysterical.

I saw a long-ass trailer for Terminator: Salvation before I got ill. IT WAS SO AWESOME!!! It's going to be gritty and brutal and kickass. Between that and Wolverine I'll be a happy girl next summer.

Today we saw John Cho and Kal Penn for a Harold & Kumar panel (NPH wasn't available, dammit!). They were really funny. Turns out John is more like Kumar and Kal is more serious like Harold. John Cho was hysterical.

Finally, some freaks attendees. This Venom Spiderman has a muffin top.

So that's the end of my Comic-Con experience. Tragically, I was ill for the end of it, but that's OK. I still saw most of what I came for, and had an exhausting blast, as always. Smell ya next year, San Diego!!!

26 July 2008

Comic-Con 2008: Kevin Smith

Kevin Smith started his panel by offering people $20 for one of the free Wonder Woman bags they handed out. His wife wanted one, he couldn't find one, and he wants to get laid via the barter system.

He showed 5 minutes of Zack and Miri Make a Porno and then the cast joined him - some dude, Justin Long, Traci Lords, Katie Morgan, Jason Mewes, Seth Rogen, and Elizabeth Banks.

The panel was hilarious, of course. The clip was great - Justin Long and Brandon Routh play a gay couple. The movie got an NC-17 rating for the first 3 cuts. Now he's appealing it to the ratings board. Otherwise he has to cut "thrusting" and "something unspeakable." He is contractually obligated to deliver an R-rated movie.

Kevin was asked if there's any subject so offensive he won't touch it. He said, "I can't do anything with rape. In real life either." He's done with the Jay and Silent Bob characters. He is toying with a Clerks 3 with the guys in their late 40s. He wants to do a courtroom drama. Next up is a horror movie, followed by something he couldn't discuss, other than saying it was "set in space".

Kevin Smith is a god among men with his quick wit. Love it.

I'm lining up at 4 AM tomorrow for the Heroes panel. Is that weird? I just want to do the crazy fangirl thing. As if going to Comic-Con weren't enough.

Comic-Con 2008: The Middling Stuff

The Wolfman - Emily Blunt and Benicio del Toro. We saw a trailer and it looks cool. It has a very Sleepy Hollow feel to me. It's set in the 1800s and they did makeup for the Wolfman, not CGI. The transformation might end up being CGI though. It looked alright.

The Spirit - Director Frank Miller and Samuel L. Jackson. I wanted to like The Spirit, I really did. I liked the teaser trailer. But I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that this movie looks like CRAP!!!

They said "there's nothing campy about this movie." But it looks campy, and corny, and boring. And no disrespect to Frank Miller, who is insanely talented, but he's not funny. And he's boring. Like his movie.


Comic-Con 2008: 24

Apologies for the even-crappier-than-normal pic - I was at the back of the room. I was lucky to get into the 24 panel, as they were only taking 20 more people behind me.

They showed a trailer for the November TV movie, as well as a clip. It featured Jack in Africa herding kids to an embassy. The whole movie was filmed in South Africa and fills in some time before Season 7. Jack had a messenger bag and did tons of shooting - ergo, it was awesome.

Carlos Bernard got massive response from the audience. I didn't realize he was a fan favorite - he's certainly always been my favorite. They didn't explain how Tony is coming back. Kiefer said that it's a "clever" way that he's coming back, and that it's interesting "what was done behind people's backs." Whatever. I'll take it.

Carlos joked about having been jobless since Tony died. He said, "there's a little softcore coming out soon." You have no idea how much I wish that weren't a joke. The writers brought him back because they didn't love the way Tony died and one of them joked that they brought Carlos back just so they could kill him again (which he quickly amended with "No we won't."). Carlos got up and started throwing cash at the writer. Carlos was hysterical.

Kiefer said he got to shoot at and tackle Carlos in their first scene together. God I live for a good Jack and Tony confrontation.

Brilliant Audience Member of the Day: This guy Cameron who commented on Jack's pervasive use of the word Dammit, followed by a request for him to use it on him. I squeed when Kiefer got all Jack Bauer up there and yelled "Dammit, Cameron!" Then when the kid walked away he yelled, "Dammit, Cameron, don't walk away from me!" Brilliant. He said that he started saying Dammit a lot because it's the one word he can get past the censors. Then he got wind of the Drinking Game and scaled it back some. Allegedly.

They of course got the obligatory question "When do people on the show pee?" Kiefer said they shot a bathroom scene once but it got cut. His rule is that any time the show cuts to the White House, that's when Jack pees, eats, and drinks.

Kiefer said episodes 8-11 are particularly exciting. They are still hoping to do a movie, but probably not until the show is over.

He was asked what the coolest thing Jack has done so far is, and he said "chopping that guy's head off in Season 2." Sweet.

Kiefer was very thankful - he probably said "thank you" 6 times at the end and he said we all rock. We do. And 24 had better be good this year!!!

Comic-Con 2008: Watchmen

First up, Watchmen.

The panel: Malin Akerman, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Carla Gugino, Jackie Earle Haley, Billy Crudup, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Goode, and Director Zack Snyder. They showed us a special extended trailer. There still wasn't any dialogue in it, but we got to see a lot more. It's going to be so hyper-stylized and visually stunning. Yes, those will be the review quotes.

The cast was pretty cool.

LOL moments:
Question for Billy Crudup: "What was it like being a blue man and was the rest of the Blue Man Group jealous you got the part?"
Answer: "We're not on speaking terms anymore."

When someone dressed as Rorschach asked Zack about the recent trend toward more mature comic book movies, Zack responded, "It's cool that you are asking about a more mature audience while you're dressed like that." I love it when the panelists make fun of people. And people don't seem to mind it either.

I don't know who this Matthew Goode kid is but he was funny and cool (and not just cuz he's British). He's playing Adrian with a bit of a German accent in his private life. This doesn't concern me, but fanboys might freak out, I don't know. He seemed to have a good explanation for it, thinking Adrian's parents were Nazis.

The movie should be awesome, and hopefully faithful to the comic.

25 July 2008

Comic-Con 2008: Thursday Evening

We completed our Thursday with a panel by Dark Castle Studios. They look to be making lots of B-horror movies and ninja films. This dude Rain was there for a movie. If you watch The Colbert Report you might know him because they have a rivalry going. He's a huge Korean pop star or something. All I know is he doesn't speak much English, and the English he speaks involves "girls", "see my movie", and "I am the best." I like this kid.

The real cool panel was for RocknRolla. Directed by Guy Ritchie, starring Gerard Butler (hotness!), Jeremy Piven (hate!), Ludacris (cool!), and Idris Elba (The Wire bitches!). The guys were really funny. "Gerry" was hysterical, and maybe a little drunk.

A chick got up to ask a question and she was dressed in a blue queen outfit, complete with blue hair. He looked over and muttered, "You're fuckin' weird." But he said it smiling and she didn't seem to care. He was throwing Hershey's Kisses into the audience for some reason, and said, "It's getting a bit like Sea World in here." LOL Gerry.

He said, "doin' it" at one point and grimaced: "I've turned into an American. 'Doin' it.' I hate myself."

The movie seems very very cool, in the vein of Guy's first movies. According to Gerry, "It's better than sex. But not with me. It's better than sex with Idris." I'm sorry, this dude was just cracking me up and I kept writing down his quotes. A chick asked him what genre he would do next. Answer: "Halle Berry."

Piven was pretty funny too, not just the douche he usually is.

Guy is next directing a Sherlock Holmes movie starring Robert Downey, Jr. It was described as "James Bond in 1891" - it's going to be an action movie.

When asked about the best experience making this movie, Gerry said it was when Madonna gave him a B12 shot in the arse in a car. It didn't work - he got sicker - but he appreciated the effort.

So clearly I was enamored with Gerard Butler.

My evening was completed with a trip to Pinkberry. My California culinary adventure is complete.

24 July 2008

Comic-Con 2008: Thursday

We got in line at 8:00 this morning and it was already wrapped around the Convention Center. (First Hall H presentation at 11:30, doors opened at 9:45.) We were probably 1/4 of the way back in the 6,500 seat hall, decent seats. It seemed most people were in line for the Twilight presentation at 1:00. I don't know much about those books/movie, other than people either passionately love them or passionately hate them. And their fans wear homemade t-shirts. I've never seen so many homemade t-shirts - we're talking puffy paint and magic marker all over the place. Team Edward, quotes from the books, I have no idea what's going on. I feel so old and out of touch with Twilight. That might be a good thing.


The Day the Earth Stood Still - A scruffy Keanu Reeves and hot Jennifer Connelly. Keanu was really cool and introduced everyone on the panel. They showed some cool clips, it looks good. I'll wait for the reviews.

Max Payne - Mark Wahlberg, hot as S Mila Kunis, Ludacris. The movie looks like gun porn, pure and simple. Hot-ass gun porn. Mark was really funny. Everyone was "woo-ing" when he would start to talk, and he compared it to doing a concert in Japan. He also said, "Now I know why New Kids wanted to go back." Perhaps we'll get a Funky Bunch reunion? He also said it made him "warm in the pants." That movie looks good - biceps, violence, gun porn. That's all I need.

Then there was a special guest - Hugh Mother-loving Jackman!!! I was surprised when Wolverine wasn't on the schedule, but it was today's Big Surprise. He was soooooo hot. He was also really cool. He said he had just gotten off the plane and they just finished filming, but he wanted to make sure he was able to bring something to Comic-Con. Also, he gave the creator of Wolverine in the comic a shout-out -- and then proceeded to go down into the crowd so that he could shake the guy's hand. He said he always wanted to meet him and thank him, and that was just so frakking cool that he did that!! Fanboys eat that S up.

They showed a trailer for it. HOLYSHITOHMYGOD I had goosebumps the whole time. The whole time. It is going to be AWESOME! Gambit and Deadpool got huge reactions.

Push - Chris Evans, Dakota Fanning, Djimon Hounsou, Camilla Belle. The movie is about people with abilities (telekinesis, forcing memories into people's heads, predicting the future, etc.) because of government experiments. Most important part: Chris Evans. He's funny and hawt. I knew nothing about the movie going in, but it looked pretty cool. I'll see it. Dakota was stuck in traffic, but came out by herself at the end of all the other presentations just so she could say hi. So cute. And she's not all awkward-looking and deformed like Houman and I thought she would be by now.

Twilight - Director Catherine Hardwicke, author Stephenie Meyer, and the cast - Robert Pattinson (Edward), Kristen Stewart (Bella), Cam Gigandet (James), Rachelle LaFevre (Victoria), Edi Gathegi (Laurant), and Taylor Lautner (Jacob). There was much squeeing every time Twilight was mentioned. I seriously had to cover my ears. It was awesome. The squeeing at Comic-Con is usually of the more masculine variety. The whole time Mike just kept saying, "What is going on?"

After that the hall totally emptied out - so many girls (and their squeeing moms) came just for that!

We're waiting for the RocknRolla presentation right now - Gerard Butler and Guy Ritchie.

Comic-Con 2008: Preview Night

Hey, I actually did stuff today! Like, cultural, outdoors, walking stuff!

We went to Balboa Park and the Air & Space Museum (with a Star Trek exhibit), the Japanese Gardens, and the USS Midway aircraft carrier. And, most importantly, In-N-Out Burger.

I waited in a line for 90 minutes to get my new BFF Andy stuff - I AM AN AWESOME FRIEND, AREN'T I ANDY?? Anyway, I totally got you 2 Lightning McQueens. As for the other stuff - we got to the Hasbro line at 6:15 (doors opened at 6, we were in line at 5) and the line was already closed. So sadly there will be nothing other than those cars, but I am so happy I could get them for you.

While I waited in line, Mike went to the Star Trek booth and totally got ALL FOUR posters. He rocks.

We got all kinds of crap at the NBC booth, including a Nerd Herd shirt that I am butt-exited to wear!

23 July 2008

First Night in San Diego

We went to dinner last night with Mike's gorgeous cousin, Elma, and her handsome boyfriend, Tony. I just had to post this picture because - how gorgeous do we look? Honestly?

Anyway, dinner was great (oxtail ravioli!), and it was so much fun. I am freaking in love with San Diego too. Weather is a perfect 72 degrees, the Gaslamp District is gorgeous. I'm in love!

Today we're planning to go to the Wildlife Park and Balboa Park - and In-N-Out Burger - before the fun starts tonight.

22 July 2008

R.I.P. Sophia Petrillo

I was greeted with this sad news when I got off of the airplane. The Golden Girls is one of my all-time favorite shows and I'm not ashamed to admit it!

Former Golden Girls star Estelle Getty has died at the age of 84, just three days shy of her 85th birthday.

Getty had been suffering for years with Lewy Body Dementia.

Holy Dickwad, Batman

Cops allowed Christian Bale to attend the biggest film premiere of the summer last night — despite him being accused of assault.

Bale, 34, faces questioning over the claim — made by his own mother and sister. He is alleged to have lashed out on Sunday night at Park Lane’s Dorchester Hotel — where he has a suite.

Mum Jenny, 61, and sister Sharon, 40, who live in Dorset, went to a police station in Hampshire yesterday to lodge the allegation. The matter was referred to the Met Police.

Detectives, well aware of last night’s glittering bash, took the decision not to approach Bale yesterday. But they are expected to make attempts to quiz the Wales-born actor today.

What kind of a dickwad beats up his mom and sister? Oh, wait - this story was about Christian Bale? The Christian Bale? The hot guy who plays Batman? Nevermind, then. He's allowed. Beating up old women doesn't make me love him any less. It takes a real man to pull that crap.


Is This Funny?

Maybe it's just me, stuck at an airport because my flight was canceled, running on 4 hours of sleep, but I laughed my ass off!!!

21 July 2008

Boring Monday; Bye-Bye

Is it just me or is this the Dullest Monday Ever? Nothing's happening. I feel bad not posting anything, but NOTHING is going on.

I head out to San Diego for Comic-Con dark-and-early tomorrow morning! I will hopefully we able to blog from the Con (free wi-fi brought to you by the lovely people who made Eagle Eye). I'M SO EXCITED!!

I have a shopping list for a certain faithful reader. Planned panels include: Fringe, Max Payne, Watchmen, 24, Heroes, Lost, Terminator: Salvation, MythBusters, and many more.

In my absence, my Assistant to the Editor will be posting... oh, right... nevermind. He doesn't remember how. And also he's currently being held in Israel. That's not a joke. Well, I mean, I hope they've let him go by now. They didn't call me to ask to vouch for him.

20 July 2008

BBX: Nominations

Jessie is so much more than just an ugly meathead. He is also a flaming douchebag. "Who wants to see my steroid-laced HoH room?" FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WEAR A SHIRT! He could totes beat everyone at chess, y'all!

Nothing else happened. I really hate competitions, especially lame food competitions.

Nominated: Steve and Dan.

God I love hate this show.

19 July 2008

It's Not Horrible

OMG, I love Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. Click here to watch - it's only available through Sunday.

At first I was trying to be all cynical about it, saying I wouldn't watch it because it was the "cool" (among us internet geeks) thing to do. But what do you know, we were bored a couple days ago and we gave in. And it is awesome.

Neil Patrick Harris is hysterical, the songs are catchy and good, it's really just lovely and fun. Good times, Joss Whedon!

18 July 2008


Of course The Dark Knight is as good as everyone thought it would be!

We saw it on IMAX this afternoon and it was fabulous. As good as Heath Ledger is, I swear Aaron Eckhart stole the movie. And Gary Oldman is awesome. The whole freaking thing is awesomeness personified.

Houman says: "It was so touching, I almost cried when Batman died at the end. Oops, am I supposed to say Spoiler Alert first?"

Mike says: "Heath Ledger deserves an Oscar. All other action movies are tainted for me."

Of course Mike used the word "taint".

You Watches the Watchmen

I think Empire's site is finally a little less overwhelmed today. So you can see a high-quality version of the Watchmen trailer here.

Because Dr. Manhattan (that would be the 8-foot-tall, blue, naked dude) must be seen in high quality.

At Least It's Something

No trailer, but it's a poster. An honest to God poster which means it's really going to come out... eventually!

17 July 2008

SYTYCD Results

They opened with a group Bollywood number. LOVELY! Then we got a girls group performance (an awesome-as-always Mia Michaels routine) and a guys group performance (choreographed by Nigel, WTF? It was good!). The more group performances the better, that's my motto.

Bottom 2 Girls: Comfort and Kherington. Of course.

Bottom 3 Guys: Mark and Gev. That sounds right. I love Gev, but now it gets hard because I love all the other guys. Gev's solo was AMAZING!

Good-bye: Kherington and GEV!!!

O! M! G! I am SOOOOOOOOOOOO bitter over this. He's so awesome!!!! And Mark totally needed to go!!!!

I will miss his awesome solos. SADNESS PEOPLE FOR REALS!!!

Big Brother 10

I hate Brian and Dan acting holier-than-thou and being pissed because Ollie "sold them out." It was really Brian who wouldn't stop running his mouth about how he was running things. He screwed himself.

Another enthralling episode: sock puppet theater. OMG they think they are so much funnier than they are. LULZ....

Blonde Bimbo Drama!! Tears and yelling and near-fighting. Yay!

Evicted: Brian. 9 to 1. LOL. The Racist Sock Puppet Strategy didn't work. Houman's sitting next to me watching and he totally called that. I was surprised more people didn't side with Brian. But then again I'm not the BBX expert that he is.

Head of Household: Jessie.

16 July 2008

Project Runway Is Back, Bitches!

It was fun picking out "the quirky ones", "the urban ones", and "the straight one". As ever, there are far too many designers at the beginning to keep track of. I liked Jennifer's portfolio, and I like Terri, Kelli, and Kenley (she's so hot and I love her style and I'm in LOVE with her!!). I don't like Suede because of his name and usage of the word "whackadoodle". And Blayne because of his name and perma-tan and general grossness.

Challenge: grocery store!! A Project Runway classic! Too many tablecloths all around; that's the easy way out and they shouldn't let people get them. Tim Gunn gives all the tablecloth users a complex, so they all just start adding things to their clothes - and that's always a mistake!

Guest Judge: The FABULOUS Austin from Season 1!

Blayne's was a HOT MESS!! Stella's was literally some garbage bags hanging from her model. And Jerry's was a freaking raincoat made out of a shower curtain, how unoriginal. Michael Kors called it a "bridal nurse" LOL.

Winner: Kelli. Yay!

Good-bye: Jerry. We hardly knew ye. I felt like he had some potential, and was a good guy, but he just sucked at this challenge. And of course they ended up keeping the "whackier" personalities.

SYTYCD Performances

1. Courtney and Joshua - Hip Hop. Awesome choreography, great job by Joshua OF COURSE. She wasn't half bad.

2. Kherington and Mark - Two-Step. Ew, country. It didn't flow well at all, wasn't smooth, and they didn't partner well either. I totally expected that - they're both pretty boring and have gotten through based on their old partners.

3. Comfort and Twitch - Waltz. They didn't seem to partner too well. The choreography was a bit boring. But that lift at the end was HOLY CRAP! It was a "gumbo of emotions" according to Lil C. Judges hated it.

4. Katee and Will - Broadway. Lucky girl goes from Joshua to Will. It was good stuff, and of course Will pulled his shirt open at the end. This show knows where its bread is buttered.

5. Chelsie and Gev - Contemporary. Very cool routine, and they were excellent!

6. Courtney and Joshua - Rumba. Hot, with lots of difficulty. I think Courtney is the show whore - everyone she partners with, I think she's banging. She's hot.

7. Kherington and Mark - Jazz. They were fine, but they're boring. They danced to "Canned Heat" which of course just reminds you of Napoleon Dynamite now. I was waiting for some sweet moves.

8. Comfort and Twitch - Hip Hop! Oh S son this HAS to be good!! And it was! They really did seem like they were competing with each other, trying to outdo one another and that made it great. Since it's up to the viewers to vote now, she might be safe.

9. Katee and Will - Pas de Deux. That's a new one. I didn't really get the dance. But Will was shirtless again. I got that. It definitely looked tough and they're both so good technically, so it was good.

10. Chelsie and Gev - Jive. It was so awesome! Gev is really, really good. I think he bangs all his partners too.

Going in to the night, I would have thought Comfort would be gone for sure, but since she did a great hip hop routine, I think people might vote for her. Kherington and Mark probably deserve to go home most.

Terminator Trailer: Get It While You Can

Here's the teaser trailer for Terminator: Salvation. It's the perfect teaser trailer!!!

But here's the problem I'm having: they just started filming this movie and they already have so much to show. WHERE IS MY STAR TREK TRAILER!!!!????? OMG, they've been done filming that forever!!! It must suck so badly if they have nothing to show yet!

B&C Mugshot of the Week

Andy Dick was arrested early Tuesday outside a fast-food restaurant in Murrieta, CA, for investigation of drug possession and misdemeanor sexual battery, according to police.

The 42-year-old comedian was arrested around 2 a.m. in a parking lot by the Buffalo Wild Wings in the Riverside County city, 60 miles southeast of Los Angeles.

Great Mugshot! Nope, he doesn't look guilty of anything, not at all.

Big Brother 10

Did I really just watch a show where a 40-something chick and a meathead guy are fighting for days over her waking him up? BORING!

FF through Veto Competition, blah blah blah. Jessie won so he's off the block.

LOL that Brian thinks he runs the house - that's always sure to backfire. Sure enough, the girls and Ollie all band together (everyone else in the house, really) to ask Jerry to backdoor Brian instead. They all freaking pounced on Jerry at once, that was funny.

I like Ollie. No, I LOVE Ollie.

Alright, Big Brother - you got me. It was boring in the beginning, but I do love me some game play. And I love when people are uber-confident that they're safe and they're not. Bonus!

Nominated: Brian. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Honor Is Awful Cute

Awwww... look at all that hair.

Here's the problem: I looked like that as a baby. Honor has a long, sad road ahead of her, my friends.

15 July 2008

They Are Trying To Kill Me

They are trying to kill me with Mohinder and Maya kissing. And then they try to make it better with some Sylar-strolling-through-a-neighborhood-and-TKing people action. Which, well, that does make it better.

Sad Horns

Jimmy Kimmel and his girlfriend of five years, comedienne Sarah Silverman, have broken up.

Kimmel’s rep Lewis Kay and Silverman’s rep Amy Zvi both confirmed that Jimmy and Sarah are no longer dating and issued a joint statement that “Jimmy and Sarah have and will have no further comment.”

Aww, shucks. I liked them too. Does no one stay together??

I'm Totally Sleeping On This

I did NOT realize that Project Runway comes back this Wednesday! I literally found out yesterday.

Now I have a reason to live!!

Breaking Dance News

Announced at the FOX Press Tour, courtesy EW.com:

So You Think You Can Dance contestant Jessica King has suffered an injury and has been replaced by the recently eliminated Comfort Fedoke. Executive producer Nigel Lythgoe refuses to elaborate on the specifics of King's injury, saying only that she'll be out for "four to five weeks."

Big Brother 10: To Watch Or Not To Watch

I haven't decided if I'm going to watch the new Big Brother or not. I just watched last night's premiere. I always feel the same way about this show - hate it to death, can't look away.

Did Julie say it was the most diverse Big Brother cast ever? Why? Cuz there's one 75-year-old geezer and a gay rodeo dude and two whole black people? Looks like the usual bunch of butter-faced muscle-head guys and butter-faced chicks with huge boobs to me. Is there literally a Hooters waitress every year?

They've already corrupted the old guy, Jerry, making him grab some tit. Ten bucks says Ollie will be drinking before he leaves the house....

I fast-forwarded through the competition, did I miss anything important? Doubt it.

Head of Household: Jerry was chosen when they all voted just based on appearances. Duh. Of course they picked the old dude.

There was some early game play, as the pasty whitebread boys banded together, and allowed Ollie in as well.

I love how much Renny bothers Jessie and the other guys.

Nominated for Eviction: Renny and Jessie. Damn. I want them to bother each other for a while longer; at least the anxiety of being nominated should bring some drama from them.

Double the Sexy Babies

Brad Pitt was at Angelina Jolie's side as she gave birth to a son and daughter Saturday at the Fondation Lenval hospital in Nice, France, PEOPLE has confirmed.

12 July 2008


Look, I don't want to post/read spoilers, but with Heroes you never know - alternate timelines abound.

I'm currently in the midst of a freak-out over this picture. Will Sylar work with Bennet? Will he always wear that awesome suit? Will I pass out and die before the show even airs?


More pics here at the source.

Hellboy II Isn't Hellish

I ain't gonna front. Even my geeky mind can't deal with the first Hellboy. We watched it again last night and I was still all WTF is the point. I just didn't get the tone, I didn't like the historical stuff, I was confused.

Hellboy II, however, I definitely liked more. There is still something about the tone that throws me off, but I laughed at this one a lot more, and liked Hellboy a lot more. The special effects and creatures are out-of-this-world amazing. Really. At a few points I had to remind myself that it was fake, everything seemed very real. They got real professionals to work on this film - kudos!!

So if you like Hellboy it's definitely worth the viewing.

SYTYCD Results

Very cool Tabitha & Napoleon routine to open the show. I heart Tabitha & Napoleon. And not just because they make a beautiful couple. But mostly.

Bottom Three:
Comfort and Thayne. Like duh.
Jessica and Will. Oy. They'll be OK in their solos. At least Will will be, and he's all I care about. He could just take a dump on the stage during his solo and he'd be safe.
Kherington and Twitch. They'll be fine too.

No-brainer this week for sure. In fact, even before the solos the judges pretty much decided. They were like, "You should be fine this week" - to everyone but Comfort and Thayne.

Will took his shirt off and did the MOST AMAZING SOLO EVER! God I love him. Then Twitch came out and did the SECOND MOST AMAZING SOLO EVER!

Going home: Comfort and Thayne. LIKE DUH! No drama there. If they had sent Will home over Thayne the world would have imploded.

Next week things get tough!!!

Tonya's Back Bitches!

So now it's Real World/Road Rules Challenge Meets Survivor?? Whatever, it's all good. But... wha? FALL? FALL???

Why Are You Here?

Because I'm not here to make friends!

SYTYCD Performances: Double the Fun

Cat's hair looks like she just got out of the shower and she's wearing a dish rag. This is a chick who usually has wild hairstyles and dresses, so WTF?

Also, I just figured out that the judges must be drinking before the show. Especially Mary. But tonight they are all wasted.

1. Chelsie and Mark, Salsa. Not thrilling, just really good. She's a ballroom dancer so of course it was good. I do like Chelsie. Mia Michaels wants to stab her because she's so cute. LOL, Mia.

2. Comfort and Thayne, Hip Hop. She was good. He was... ugh. Tall, skinny white boy who couldn't wipe the smile off of his face. They didn't partner well.

3. Jessica and Will, Contemporary. Jesus Lord, I was distracted by Will's body. Guh. Could he BE wearing any less clothes? Could he be any more sculpted? It looked like a super-hard routine and they were great.

4. Courtney and Gev, Cha Cha. They are so good together, even with him wearing that nasty skinny-pale-chest-bearing shirt. Love them both! Can he get some sun?

5. Twitch and Kherington, Crump. Hells yes crump!! Oh S son, that was off the hook. Twitch was amazing - of course!!! But she was good too. The faces he was making were fabulous. Fabulously crumpy!! He was off the chain though, I want to see him do a whole crump routine by himself. (It did kind of fall apart at the end, but I'll pretend that didn't exist.)

6. Katee and Joshua, Viennese Waltz. HOLY CRAP unbelievable!!! They were SO good. They partner so well together. Beautiful! (The judges said their technique wasn't perfect, but what do those alleged professionals know? I thought it was great to watch!)

7. Chelsie and Mark, Broadway. They work so well together. Awesome! Yes, I definitely like Chelsie.

8. Comfort and Thayne, Contemporary. There were a lot of really pretty moves in that choreography and I thought they were good. Are they still the worst couple? Sure. The judges were brutal. They gotta be gone tomorrow.

9. Jessica and Will, Quick Step. If anyone's up to that challenge, it's them. It was corny (I mean, it's the Quick Step, set to Barry Manilow), but really fun! What do I know about Quick Step technique? Nothing!

10. Courtney and Gev, Jazz. That was so fun and really good. They are totally doing it, right? Because they partner SO WELL! I wonder if they'll have any problems once the couples are mixed up.

11. Twitch and Kherington, Smooth Tango. Very cool routine, very good!!

12. Katee and Joshua, Bollywood. Holy crap - Bollywood! First time ever on the show! That was fun for sure!!!

What's the Opposite of Gun Porn?

So close guys. Now what you want to do is just raise the gun up a little closer... like on your temple. That's it. Now squeeze the trigger.

Having Kids Ages You

Here's a picture of Maddie Briann Aldridge, who really just looks like a lump, and her mother, Jamie Lynn Spears. Jamie Lynn is still 17, right? She looks super old here. Is her hair gray? Really, she looks like Tammy Wynette. And Tammy's been dead for 10 years.

Sexy Baby Has Decent Name

Levi Alves McConaughey. (Better than the thousand others I was thinking he would be named.) Can anyone explain this Bible verse to me? Do not get. I get Matthew's motto though: Just keep livin', man!
Explaining how they came up with the name for their baby boy, Matthew tells OK!, "Levi was another name for the apostle Matthew in The Bible. They were, in fact, two names for the same person.

"Our son was born at 6:22 pm, and this particular time represents my favorite verse in the book of Matthew in The Bible: 'If thy eye be single, thy whole body will be full of light.'"

Baby Levi's middle name is taken directly from his mother Camila's last name. "We wanted to incorporate her family name," explains the proud new father.

To all the well-wishers and fans, Matthew and Camila have also released the following statement:

"We welcome Levi Alves McConaughey into this wonderful life and look forward to living in it with him. In the mean time and all times, just keep livin'."

Sexiest Baby Born

I can't wait to find out the name. His brother named his son Miller Lyte, and I can only imagine this kid's name is going to be Canoe Peace McConaughey.
Matthew McConaughey and girlfriend of two years Camila Alves have welcomed a son Monday night, his rep Alan Nierob confirms to People. The baby – the first child for both – was born at 6:22 p.m. in Los Angeles, weighing in at 7 lbs., 4 oz.

07 July 2008

Boo Hiss

Oh no! They were the cutest couple ever!! Well, at least I have Jim and Jenny....
Drew Barrymore and Justin Long have broken up according to her rep’s confirmation to US Weekly.

The 33-year-old star from E.T. and the 30-year-old actor famous for his Apple ads, have been together for almost a year, dating back to last August.

Sunday Born a Day Late

Dammit! I kind of dig the name Sunday. Especially Sunday Rose. So cute!

This bitch was pregnant for a hot second. She never even got fat. Meanwhile, it seems like Gwen Stefani's been pregnant for a year. When is she popping?
Nicole Kidman and her husband, Keith Urban, have welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Sunday Rose Kidman Urban, born Monday morning in Nashville, People has confirmed.

"Husband Keith was by Nicole's side, and mother and baby are very well," said spokesman Paul Freundlich, who added that the couple were "delighted" to make the announcement. He also said the baby girl weighed 6 lbs., 7.5 oz.

05 July 2008

Jim and Jenny For The Win

Yes, they are officially my new Favorite Celebrity Couple. This picture solidifies that.

04 July 2008

How Cute is WALL-E

Very cute. Like, totally adorable, just like I knew it would be. It almost broke my heart at the end too, honestly. The only Pixar movie I don't like is Cars. This one is right up there with The Incredibles and Finding Nemo. The story's so great, I love that there isn't much dialogue, the humans are all fat and lazy, and I fell in love with this little OCD robot named MO that has to obsessively clean everything. So cute!!!

03 July 2008

Hancock Sucks... Well, You Know

Woah. Again, the things I do for my marriage. Well that, and for the love of Jason Bateman.

This movie stinks as much as everyone is saying it does. It's maybe not a complete waste of time, but whenever something happened on screen, my response was: So what? Who cares?

Not me.


SYTYCD Results

Again, Bottom Three was as it should be.

Matt and Kourtni, who had a very good solo I thought.
Courtney and Gev, who both had great solos. Gev's was actually insane and a may zing.
Comfort and Thayne. Eh.

Kicked off: Matt. No difference between him and Thayne as far as I could tell. They both bore me. So that's fine.

And Kourtni. Well, that's a shame. I feel like she was a great dancer who never really showed it on the show. So maybe that means she sucks. Or Matt brought her down, which is more likely.

Sad horns.

So next week has to be Comfort and Thayne, right? No suspense there.

02 July 2008

All It Takes is 20 Seconds to Get Me Excited Again

And not just because Mohinder's shirtless at the 11-second mark.


SYTYCD Performances: Double the Fun

I was pissed at first cuz the show is still 2 hours long and I was all, They're just going to pad with filler this sucks! But why did I doubt my favorite show? Because instead we get TWO PERFORMANCES from each couple! Woo-hoo! I was WAY too excited about that.

1. Jessica and Will, the Jive. Why does he have to be so frakking good?! I love it. And her flip-thing over him - HOLY CRAP!

2. Comfort and Thayne, Broadway - new couple alert! Was there like no energy there, or was it just me severely disliking Thayne?

3. Kourtni and Matt, Hip hop. It was oddly slow and I didn't like that.

At this point in this show, this is me: WTF? I WAS ALL EXCITED ABOUT GETTING DOUBLE THE PERFORMANCES AND WTF? TONIGHT SUCKS! Mike keeps saying they all look tired. Maybe he's right.

4. Chelsie and Mark, Jazz. More energy, so that's good. They were great, but there was still something about it that wasn't making me jump off my sofa. You know who I need? Twitch or Joshua. NOW!

5. Twitch (whew) and Kherington, Paso Doble. How fun was that? Fun!

6. Katee and Joshua (yay) with a Mia Michaels Contemporary routine. Finally something that moved me and made me rewind!! Joshua is AMAZING. (I think Will would have done amazing things with this routine too.) His movements are just incredible, good lord. (And she was actually awesome too!)

7. Courtney and Gev, Hip Hop. It had an old-school, playful vibe. I liked, but I felt like he pulled his performance back somewhat in order for them to stay on the same level. Cuz otherwise he would have shown her up big time.

8. Jessica and Will, Lyrical Jazz. Hi Shirtless Will, nice to meet you. Dayum. That routine was HOT! So glad the shirt prop worked for them. LOVED!

9. Comfort and Thayne, Smooth Waltz. I felt like Napoleon - I'm not a waltz expert, but I enjoyed it. It was lovely; she was gorgeous. Do I think it's the kind of thing that people are going to vote for? No. They're gone this week. Sad face.

10. Kourtni and Matt, Mambo. I thought it was fun, but it was definitely a little rough in spots. Maybe they'll be the ones to go.

11. Chelsie and Mark, Foxtrot. That little girl is so good. She gets crazy extension.

12. Twitch and Kherington, Mia Michaels Contemporary. AMAZING! Yay for 2 Mia routines!

13. Katee and Joshua, West Coast Swing. Good stuff. I can't decide who I love more - Joshua or Will! And I've officially warmed up to Katee and forgiven her for crying and whining during auditions.

14. Courtney and Gev, Broadway. Gleefully corny as Broadway routines often are.

There shouldn't be any surprises tomorrow.

01 July 2008

Party Like It's 1999!!!

From EW.com:

“After months of speculation, I think we have finally figured out for sure that we are indeed doing an Arrested Development movie," Jeffrey Tambor told EW.com at the premiere of Hellboy II on Sunday. "I am very excited about that. I love that cast and crew and I felt like we had more to say."


Another Show to Add to the List

Tim Roth??? On TV???? Are you joking? Of course I'll be there - HOLY CRAP!
Tim Roth is set to make his television series starring debut in Lie to Me, a one-hour from Imagine and 20th Century Fox TV that is being eyed for a bow early next year. Fox has picked up the drama to series, with a 13-episode commitment.

Roth will play Dr. Cal Lightman, a scientist who pioneered the field of deception detection. The doc is a human lie detector, skilled at reading the human face, body and voice to uncover the truth in criminal and private investigations. The fact that the character can apply the same skills to his personal life complicates his relationships. The science in the show is genuine, based on the work of Dr. Paul Ekman.
