Has anyone ever wondered why we call the abortion debate “Pro Life” vs. “Pro Choice?” Shouldn’t it be “Anti-Choice” vs. “Pro Choice?”

I’m just saying…

Wait, What Decade are We Supposed to be Nostalgic for Again?

Because like, two weeks ago, it was the 90s, right?  Seriously, last month we were all wearing plaid and some derivative of Doc Marten boots.

Doc Martens: I would be lying to you if I said I don't actually kind of want a pair

Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner being young and good looking on the town. Is he old enough to drive? Does it matter?

We’re not sure why we were even holding out for so long.  We were on board while they were filming the only redeeming romcom coming out next year.  But, let’s get real. How cute are they together?  People even confirmed that they’re a couple!  Hooray!

Now, they need to stay together long enough so Swift can write an amazing love-gushed record, which will go platinum.  And if he breaks her heart, then she’ll write a break up album…which will also go platinum.  Girlfriend’s got material to last a lifetime.  Anyway, I really hope these two love birds make it. Not only are the aesthetically pleasing, but they both seem like nice people.  This blog is rooting for you!

My Favorite Arrested Development Episode*

Picture 7So Meredith and I are big Arrested Development fans on this blog.  After watching a few episodes this weekend I’ve come to the conclusion that the “Let ‘Em Eat Cake” which is the season finale of the first season might be my favorite episode–or at least one of my favorites.  After the jump, you’ll see why.  Continue reading

I Mean, I Love a Good Vampire Movie/Show But…

Can Witches be the new Vampires? There’s a pretty bad-ass one in the Vampire Diaries that all the tweens (and clearly myself) are watching and you know what? If done correctly, witches are awesome.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m super psyched for New Moon (coming out November 20) and I watched True Blood religiously, but I want to see some kick-ass witches and wizards.  Harry Potter and the crew are fun and I love them and all but I want some some witches from The Craft. Let’s bring THOSE bitches back.  But, maybe rein in part of the crazy?  That got a little out of control.

You know how not to bring back witches?  Ask ABC who did a remake of Witches of Eastwick.  That show is horrible  It is neither sexy, catty nor dramatic.  It is sooooo boring.  I’ve given it three tries and I’m yawning.  The main characters are too old.  I want it to happen, I really do, but if there are going to be witches and wizards they need to be young and agile and…hot.  Sorry, Rebecca Romaign, you’re not witch material–you’re past your prime. Could be their teacher like Professor McGonagall?  Sure, but not a main witch, that’s for sure.

Moral of the story: MORE MAGIC!!!!!  WITCHES FOR 2010!!

I Want My MTV Back

Posted in opinions, random with tags , , , , , , , , , on October 1, 2009 by melsanie

There have been millions of articles written about how MTV and VH1 have given up on playing music videos, which isn’t entirely true. If you wake up at the crack of dawn like I did this morning to go to the gym, they show a good chunk of videos for three hours and not all of them are new.  Before I had to leave, they even played Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)!! I was so excited I smiled as I ran up that 8.0 incline (and then promptly suffered a mild case of asthma).

My enthusiasm for this video got me thinking though–not for the memories of the 90s, but rather for the memories of these videos.  I love everything about the videos cranked out by ‘NSYNC, Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears back in the day.  They were just so ridiculous and fun!  There was a formula to it.  There was a story, usually love was involved in some way with someone, and then they’d dance it out.

And boy, was there dancing.  I would watch these videos just for the choreographed parts and I would get chills each time.  As someone with little to no rhythm, it always boggles my mind how you can get 20 plus people to perform the same complicated moves at the same time to the same beat.  I loved it, and clearly, people still love it.  Some of these videos have over 10 million views on youtube and they aired on TV over 10 years ago.  They had to have done something right.

So, music producers/directors.  Please bring back music videos with choreographed dance numbers.  No, not gyrating hussies on shiny cars–those don’t count.  I want something like Britney in “Drive Me Crazy” or ‘NSYNC in “Bye Bye Bye”.
