In My Opinionation

Miyim Bialik, aka Blossom, is going to be on What Not To Wear. This is awesome, yet sadly, unsurprising news.  Who amongst us can forget Blossom’s penchant for pleated shorts and giant flower hats? Not this blogger, that’s for sure.

I wonder what Blossom’s totally radder, best friend Six would have to say?

Is she even still alive?  Huh.  That can be a fun activity if you’re truly bored: Find out whatever happened to Jenna Von Oy and report back to me.  While you’re at it, find The Secret World of Alex Mack‘s Larissa Oylenik for me too?

Have you seen this girl?

Have you seen this girl?

She’s not related to anything in this post, but, like seriously, what happened to her?

The Blossom theme song. Why? Because it’s awesome.

Okay, but, Why?

Old Men New Kids on the Block were on the Today Show this morning.  It was like watching a Celebrex commercial.  You know how there’s been a revival to bring the 80’s back? I think this appearance just killed that revival…

 

Dear Matthew Fox, What Happened?!

Posted in lost, mysteries, television with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 30, 2009 by thedith

Is it me, or is chest-hairless Matthew Fox really, really creepy?  This post is like SPOILERS on crack.  If you haven’t seen the last few seasons of Lost, but want to, STOP READING NOW.

Jack’s hairless torso made its first appearance last season, when we were shown a flash-forward of Jack and Kate’s life together off the island.  Maybe this was a consequence of leaving the island? Kind of like how Michael couldn’t die, or Hurley started seeing dead people, Jack lost all his body hair from the neck down, because they weren’t supposed to leave the island! Last year, Defamer wrote a really great piece about the Curious Case of Jack’s Disappearing Chest Hair.

1970s: a good time for hairy chests

1970s: a good time for chest hair

But now we’re back on the island, and Jack’s hair still hasn’t grown back — which is totally weird by the way — wasn’t the 70’s The Decade of Chest Hair?
I don’t know if chest-hairless Jack  is the development of some Bare Chest-Off with Sawyer,
This hairless chest is okay, because it looks natural

Sawyer's hairless chest is okay, because it looks natural

but M.Fox, baby, there’s no need to be insecure about your chest hair.  Shaving it all off only brings more attention to those embarrassing tattoos… You’re a good looking guy, why ruin it by making your body look like a skinless chicken at the deli counter?

Okay, why?

This better mean something really awesome to him, because to me, it just means "ugly"

All I know is, hairless-chest-Matthew Fox: you’re not foolin’ anyone with that baby butt smooth torso.  You’re a hairy dude (hello, first few seasons of Lost?).

Its okay to have chest hair

You have to grow it back, Jack. You have to grow it BACK!

Get over it.  In fact, some chicks dig hairy guys.  Not necessarily this chick, but some chicks.  Please go back to your natural hairiness.  And also, tell 5th Season Jack to grow a pair of balls.  He sucks even more than usual.

Peace Out

On Friday, Bea Arthur passed away at age 86.  You probably know her as Dorothy Zbornak from The Golden Girls, aka. the original Sex and the City.  To be honest, I didn’t watch The Golden Girls a lot.  I caught episodes here and there when it was on TV Land, but I never got hooked.  However, what I do know is that of the four characters, I wanted to be Dorothy when I got older.  (Like, retired older.) She was sassy and it seemed like she always had her shit together.  Rose was a ditz, Blanche was a slut and Sophia was grouchy.  Dorothy was always the level headed one, but she still had fun.

I never hung out with my grandparents when I grew up. Since I only saw them are when my family would have lunch with them once every other year when we’d go visit, I thought that old people were boring and I was scared to grow up. However, The Golden Girls made me realize that after you have kids and your kids have kids, there is still a life to lead and you can have fun!  AND I can remain snarky and judgmental while sporting a sassy hairdo.  Thanks, Bea. And now excuse me while I go watch episodes on Surf the Channel.

Below, my favorite clip.

It’s Monday (well, kind of) and since it’s been dreary, I think we all deserve a second helping of daily crush.  You don’t?  Well, I do and I win since I’m awesome.

A Hella Inconvenient Truth

Posted in California, television with tags , , , , , , on April 20, 2009 by thedith

What I love about California: Great weather.

What I don’t love about California: Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth was pretty much based on this state.

 

So, while it may be 88 degrees and sunny out today, it’s also a bad ozone day.  Meaning, I won’t be spending the day at the beach, instead I’ll be inside, protecting my lungs from smog, and “sparing the air” by not driving.  Hella sweet, bro.

Legit hella sweet though? MTV has episodes of The Real World San Francisco up online.  San Francisco was one of the first seasons of the Real World — you know, back before it started to suck. New Orleans was the last not retarded one right?

benjamin mckenzieSo, I finally caught Southland tonight. It’s actually pretty good and I’ll be adding it to the long list of shows I watch. I highly recommend it.  Anyway, this guy is in it and he is Broody McBrooderston and I love it.  Every second of it. Sigh/Swoon.

I was watching the new 90210 on the CW the other night, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that Tori Spelling’s character, Donna Martin, had joined the cast.  It’s kind of bizarre that Joan Rivers is playing Donna this time around, instead of Tori Spelling though…

 

Tori Spelling, or Joan Rivers?

Um, What?

84136d1214438231-i-got-t-v-s-put-my-headerests-guidosHow is someone who isn’t even famous yet…”famous”?  Granted, People is known for making headlines out of such fascinating insights like, “Carrie Underwood Grocery Shops in Sweats” but come on, really?  Real Housewives of New Jersey (which I refuse to watch…New York is painful enough as it is) isn’t even on the air yet, save for the 30 minute “special” Bravo showed last week.  Ugh.  I hate reality shows.  They make me cringe and hide in my sweatshirt.  I’ll stick to my scripted shows of awesomeness, thank you very much.
