wachha!

Looking through Hung-colored glasses.

So I've been watching Top Chef again—thoroughly addicted am I—and I found a great blog perspective over at skilletdoux. I left a rambling comment over there that I realize was substantial enough to stand in for a livejournal post over here, so I'm putting it below. Gawd it bugged me this season how everyone talked about how awesome Dale was. Meh, I say. Meh.

princess puffysleeves ftw

The name Christian Siriano does just kind of sound like a fashion name (Rami does too, whereas Rami Kashou just sounds like cashew) I just wish someone would tell that little sprite to stop using "tranny" like a swear word. Or punctuation. Or whatever he thinks he's doing with it. Ugh.

yay, Heroes! Collapse )
Journeyman: I pronounce it more interesting than I thought it might be. Also, how great is it it's set in SF? Pretty great. I can foresee a task or two already.

I am the popular culture

dammit, I've been saying "lurve" (meaning love, often said with an exaggerated accent) for years; now I've heard it on a tv broadcast and read it in an online magazine. Also, someone on TV said "rawesome" tonight (meaning, presumably, 'awesome' in rooby doo speak of course) . I didn't invent either of these turns of phrase, but I was there when they were being used, way before it was cool. Just had to get that off my chest.

yeeargh!

perhaps that's too strong

Today I asked another geek friend if he's been watching Heroes. When he said no I asked, "What have you been doing on Monday nights? Eating shit? If you're not watching Heroes, you might as well be eating shit."

I apologized for going a little too far.

not most favorite, but other favorite. definitely favorite

Can I just say that Heroes rocks? If you love comics (and I do), I heartily commend you to watch and/or record it. Mondays, 8pm central. It really geeks me out in many good ways (none of them naughty or inappropriate. consider: that hot teeny cheerleader for example? her power is she can survive getting killed, and does so in all kinds of gruesome ways, totally not sexxy. the scruffy soulful-eyed indian scientist's son? constantly running around the grittier areas of NYC, he looks sweatastic in the worst ways, totally not sexxy) You probably have to like Jeph Loeb to like this show. If you don't like Loeb's work in the print or broadcast medium, you'll find this unpleasant. But he's really near the top of his game right now, occasional stiff dialog notwithstanding. I like his plotting and long-range multi-story development. And of course I loved Batman Begins, so you know I'm going to defend him most of the time. go watch

This is Daniel Cook
this is daniel cook
Daniel is the star of an interstitial show on Disney Channel titled, appropriately enough, This is Daniel Cook. It is, perhaps, one of the cutest. things. evar. He is an extremely charming and inquisitive young boy. The theme music alone gets my attention every time. In any case, I've seen enough of Daniel Cook lately to feel like I'm not crazy in saying

Don't you think there's a resemblance? For more information and close up views of Daniel, you can visit the grown ups part of his website. I think you'll agree with me, particularly when little Daniel smiles. We don't see enough smiles out of our local doppelganger.

like a junky needs junk

O ye gods why do I watch Bravo (aka the network for the wealthy, gay or both)?? Because it's Awesome that's why. Last night's Top Chef reunion show? Made me feel Icky, but in all the good, trashy ways. Someone else could maybe explain this to me: on every reality show EVAR there is someone who looks into the camera and says "I'm not here to make friends, I'm here to win." This is supposed to excuse the various atrocities they commit over the course of 8-12 episodes. Yet when the reunion show (a weird new tradition in reality television where everyone gets together to drink and look at clips) rolls around, they (in this case, Tiffani Faison) are surprised when nobody wants to be their friend! You said you didn't want friends. Now you discover that $100,000 is not enough money to "be somebody's monkey"?? Gawd sometimes I want to get on reality tv and rub this crap in people's faces. Man, you're STILL gonna get rich if you get on tv--these days even the first person kicked off a show gets at least one offer from an agent and subsequent appearances in stuff. It's like reality tv is an automatic doubler of your guaranteed 15 minutes. You're still gonna get rich, you might as well have a good time and be nice to some people along the way. Winning is awesome, I'm sure, but it is actually not ever necessary to say that you're not there to make friends. Everybody wants to win, you ninnehammers! I think it would still be Great Television to see some dude trying to make friends and succeeding, then also winning a pile of cash. Would one of my friends (all of whom are universally excellent and nice people) with more free time please audition for one of these shows?

I bet star5 would do well at Project Runway. dangerdhotrod belongs on Unanimous (as the winner of course). mrs_lovett... hm... not wife swap, please! but I bet she'd kill on Colonial House. If they ever re-do The Law Firm, I'd say r0ckc4ndy would work on that. unclebastard has clearly already won Beauty and the Geek, though with the bird thing, none of us is sure which one's the beauty and which the geek*. And of course, lio? Survivor; geez I mean would that not be perfect? does that surprise anyone? Would you not pay to see that?

Oh hey! There you go: your meme for the day: pick five friends from your list and declare the reality tv show upon which they should compete. Post results in your lj. Each of them have to do it with five of their own.


*rimshot!
crankiest. evar.

"i'll definitely try"

what Heidi Klum did to last year's winner on "Project Jay" tonite was truly truly awful and shitty. and she followed it up with that shitmouthed "apology". urge to kill rising.
