Drink up

If you really love True Blood (like I do) and you want to drink some bloodlike stuff while you watch, you’re in luck!  They are going to make it a real (not actually blood) beverage – the NYT says so.  Sort of gross right?  But how fun would it be to have a True Blood party and drink that stuff and then bite people.  FUNSIES!

brooklyn museum artifact replicated for true blood

Wow. Two of my favorite things in the world right now, the Brooklyn Museum and HBO’s new series True Blood, just blew my mind a lot. According to the Brooklyn Museum’s blog, the Bird Lady artifact featured in the first episode of season 2 is a replica of an artifact in the museum’s collections and was just featured in an a recent exhibit. holy shit. The most awesome Shelley Bernstein had the honor of talking to the production designer about the statue. Read the interview HERE. And another BK Museum blog entry HERE.



ps. i just learned from the brooklyn museum blog that HBO has made a True Blood wiki. Play with it HERE. wow. i feel super nerdy for posting that now.

I vaguely remember this show!

Running from 1981 to 1987, the Canadian show Today’s Special followed the adventures of Jeff, a mannequin who came to life every night after closing with the aid of a magic cap; his display-designer friend Jodie; and puppet buddies Sam Crenshaw (the store security guard) and Muffy (a mouse who speaks only in rhyme). Each episode taught a lesson: about hats, friendship, and even alcoholism. But for impressionable young ones, the real education came from learning the strict rules that kept Jeff breathing. Losing the hat paralyzes him, and one step outside the store makes him a mannequin for good.

WTF???

Blog of the Day: What Chuck Wore

This blog confused me at first because I thought it was called “What Chuck Whore.”  Now I realize that it’s actually a blog dedicated the fashion of Chuck Bass on GossipGirl which is actually a subject entirely worthy of its own blog. Congrats to the costume designers or wardrobe people or whatever they’re called. Check it out HERE. Also I love the blog’s tagline “…why does he wear so much purple?”

Thanks Nadia

Gossip Girl spinoff?! holyshit!

look here… (from New York Mag online)


plus

Brittany Snow To Play Young Lily Van Der Woodsen?

News! Brittany Snow, the actress best known for her compelling portrait of a mischievous teen in the film John Tucker Must Die, has reportedly been Chosen by the gods Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage for the Role of the Century: According to Star, Snow will play the young Lily Van Der Woodsen in the Gossip Girl spinoff series about Rufus and Lily’s time together in Los Angeles in the 1980s.

We’re conflicted about this. One the one hand, we’re pleased that Snow seems to be aware that this is a role that will test her mettle as a thespian and is duly preparing for it, hopefully using the Method (We actually did this ourselves one weekend and it turns out all it really takes to become Lily Van Der Woodsen is four gin martinis and one viewing of The Poseideon Adventure). On the other hand, we’re confused that elegant, patrician Lily is being played by someone so … how do we say? Downmarket. We’re sorry, but her name is Brittany! Plus, she doesn’t even look like Lily— her cheeks are rounder and her nose is thicker than Kelly Rutherford’s.

Oh. We guess they’re thinking that this is what she looked like before the surgeries?

I spent a lot of time with Steph B this weekend and I told her it was like “Joey and Janice’s Day of Fun” (excpet ours included a Cat Power concert).

woa did you hear about this?

Michel Gondry is making an episode of Flight of the Conchords. Who has HBO and will let me watch at their place on Feb 15th? puhlease…..

From Very Short List

Quirky French director Michel Gondry (The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind) teams up with HBO’s equally off-kilter series, The Flight of the Conchords, and the resulting episode — “Unnatural Love,” which airs February 15 — is pure, unadulterated pleasure.

The Conchords, of course, are a New Zealand folk band. But the love interest here is Australian, and that allows for endless, over-the-top Aussie jokes (expect plenty of references to the continent’s criminal past). As for Gondry, his distinctive, dreamlike touch turns both of the episode’s musical numbers into surreal showstoppers.

The Boa Artist

So, I’m kind of obsessed with The Pick Up Artist.  Sure, trying to get a girl to go home with you is skeevy.. but, Mystery is so hilarious and off-beat, I can’t NOT watch him dole out advice.  It’s kind of like Beauty & the Geek minus the bimbos and plus a lot of piercings.  There is a dude make-over episode right at the start of the season.. amaaazing!  (Don’t worry Nora, I did not delete.)

So in the last episode.. the challenge winner won Mystery’s “special accessory” to help him in the club. Special accessory = black boa.  Honestly, the poor kid is not only scared shitless to talk to girls, but now he has to do it with a BOA?  I don’t care how drunk I am.. if a guy lays a boa on me in a club, I’m going to think he’s off the freakin reservation.  Mystery should be loading these guys up with string cheese to hand out in the bar.   I swear, that would do the trick.  PS.  This show is greatly entertaining.

“And mummy​ said it’d never​ be so.

I’d like to annou​nce that I asked​ one Miss Sarah​ Palin​ to marry​ me at a recen​t McCai​n-​Palin​ campa​ign stop here in Penty​ and she said HELL YEAH.​ No, make that SHIT YEAH.​ 

We took the Justy​ to the arcad​e and I showe​d her the diffe​rence​ betwe​en “​Morta​l Komba​t”​ and we playe​d air hocke​y.​ Thing​s got a littl​e frisk​y.​ I am start​ing to wonde​r what she’​s gonna​ say when she finds​ out I’m a virgi​n.​

Somet​imes,​ when it’s just me and her, she calls​ me “​First​ Dude”​ and I feel like so AWESO​ME.​ Somet​imes we get all lost in our words​ and forge​t what we’​re sayin​g.​ And somet​imes we just make stuff​ up so we can look all smart​ and words​ and fun and stuff​.​ 

And she total​ly gets the thing​ about​ eatin​g ants cuz they’​re made outta​ prote​in.​”

Now go watch Brule’s Rules cause it’s my favorite!

30 Rock is more liberal than 24

I like what Gawker says about The Hills being conservative – “Heidi Montag endorses McCain, he calls her “a very talented actress”, John Adams twirls in his grave. Plus it’s all about remorseless spending and there are no gays on the show and, actually, thousands of gays in LA, especially working in fashion for God’s sake.”

No wonder I hate that show.

An infuriating video

New buzzword: Gotcha journalism.

From Wonkette: Because she’s masochistic, Sarah Palin went back for more inquisition with her MORTAL FOIL, the ancient fire dragon Katie Couric. Of course this time she brought her actual father, John McCain, to come and sit in and change the subject when Katie Couric starts getting mean. Palin sounds, uh, better(?), and is able to not completely mangle her 2002-era platitudinous bullcrap about “the terrorists.” On the other hand, Palin comes off as extremely pathetic because JOHN MCCAIN HAS TO DEFEND HER CONSTANTLY FROM KATIE COURIC.

Singing on Ugly Betty!!

YAYY!   This video is just clips, but the cast of Ugly Betty obviously recorded this version of New York, New York at some point..(they film in NY now right?) I can’t wait for this show to start back up on Thursday and I really hope there is a musical number.  Remember Vanessa Williams was a singer!!.. I think it was ‘Sometimes the snow comes down in June’.. blahblahblah.. yeah I know the words and that is sad. SAVE THE BEST FOR LAST was the name of that song and I didn’t even have to Google.  OH, yes there IS a music video… take it away Wilhelmina Slater.. 

Youtube is saying it isn’t available but that’s not true!!  HERE is the link.  PS – Thank GOD for DVR so I can watch the Office and Ugly Betty without having to pick between them.

Wow, who knew?

Those two annoying and forgetable Project Runway designers are actually a couple. The video doesn’t work for me, but I don’t have sound anyway. Let me know if it’s at all amusing. Anyone think that the designers this year haven’t been all that impressive?

And for my own attempt at BOD: The Onion AV Club does a really good Project Runway recap . I like how they make fun of Jennifer: “Jennifer was delusional about her own aesthetic right to the end: ‘I brought something different to Project Runway … with my surrealism.’ That word doesn’t mean what you think it means, Jennifer.”

I just realized Jennifer could read this, and now I feeel bad. Sorry, Jennifer.

its like project runway and top chef combined into one and for guinea pigs

in peru, they hold an annual guinea pig festival. it includes a cute fasion show (just like project runway!) where i suppose a king and a queen are crowned:

and after they crown the winner, they eat the guinea pigs (just like top chef!). look at the gallery if you don’t believe me (its pictures 7 and 8).
