I’m not a big prude or anything, but really? Your first week of classes and you jump on the, “YOU WANT SOMEONE TO SLEEP WITH YOU? PICK ME!” bandwagon. This after she went for coffee with another guy and kissed a different guy on Monday. SHEESH. Also, I’m sick of the “It’s college!” excuse. Just because you’re in college and your parents aren’t around to monitor your behaviour doesn’t suddenly make everything permissible. In theory, having sex with random guys and drinking way too much isn’t the worst thing you could do, but it’s also not the best thing you could do. Especially this early on into college. Get a clue, roommate! And stop eating my apples!
I’m seriously beginning to question his taste level.

I was super disappointed to read the news of film editor Sally Menke’s untimely death. Menke was found dead on Monday after going on a hike with her dog. No cause of death has been announced yet, but all signs point to Monday’s extreme heat.
For those of you who don’t know, Menke was Quentin Tarantino’s film editor. Yes, she edited films like Pulp Fiction, Inglourious Basterds, Kill Bill, Jackie Brown, Grindhouse and Reservoir Dogs, as well as Mulholland Falls, All The Pretty Horses and Peacock. As a fan of Tarantino, I was a fan of Menke and I always thought it was extremely cool that Tarantino’s editor was a woman. Editing is an important aspect of any film, but especially of Tarantino’s and Menke always brought such a wonderful precision and tightness to her work and her keen editing skills most certainly brought Tarantino’s films to another level of greatness.
RIP, Sally Menke. Your contributions to film will be long appreciated and you will be missed.
satanwearsburberry replied to your post:Are you devastated that Lone Star was cancelled? I thought Lone Star would do better rating wise, because it’s on right after House which always gets good ratings. Though, I guess it being placed at the same time as The Event didn’t help it.
It was against Two and a Half Men, Dancing with the Stars and The Event. That’s two established ratings juggernauts and a show from JJ Abrams for crying out loud! An original drama with no major stars or pedigree could have done well!
I wish school had me busy! The internet was gone since Monday night in my complex! I was actually twitching from internet withdrawal!
Yes. With the likes of Outsourced and Shit My Dad Says still on the air, it’s depressing that a creative network drama with great cast and writing got cancelled. I would love to blame the American public, but I think Fox was foolish to schedule it in that timeslot. Oh, TV - you break my heart so!
britkneeham said: But Nasim Pedrad is terrible.
Hardly. She’s not overly strong at impressions, but she does great character work.
I know Abby has been there longer, but for me, I felt that Nasim’s contributions to the show have been greater and more in keeping with SNL’s sensibility than Abby’s. I don’t know.
She was voted “Most Likely To Succeed” by her high school classmates. Those classmates displayed excellent judgement.
Since February 1!

Might we get a Justin Timberlake cameo? He was in NY last night and might show up to promote The Social Network, right? And David Paterson is there too.
Oh guys, I’m so excited!
Just reading this article about Bobby Moynihan visiting his old high school and came upon this sentence -
It was the weirdest thing in the world,” says Moynihan, recently promoted to repertory player on “SNL,” whose 36th season premieres tonight on NBC.
I really enjoyed the premiere. It wasn’t perfect and I wasn’t a fan of all the song selections, but I think that the plotlines at least seem believable and better-though-out. Also, I adored the cold open in which it kind of playfully addressed a lot of critics’ complaints about the series in general. Not sure about Sunshine Corazon or whatever, but for the most part, I liked it and thought it was a good start to the season.
Re - The Power of Madonna episode, I think it was just overkill that turned me off. I mean, I adored 4 Minutes, Like A Prayer and even Express Yourself. And I agree the choreography/staging was superior to the majority of the season of Glee, but it was just the writing and the conceit that I disliked so much.
What I’m liking about the idea of the Britney Spears episode is that it’s embracing its inherent wackiness and just going full-blown with the production. The Madonna attempted a story (about the guys disrespecting the girls, losing virginity etc.) that just didn’t work. But this is just pure silly with its dream sequences and Spears cameo and I respect that. One of my favourite episodes from the back nine was Bad Reputation because it kind of embraced silliness and comedy with Run Joey Run, Can’t Touch This and even Total Eclipse of the Heart with its OTT campiness and the mystery element over the Glist. It wasn’t trying to be on of the after-school special-esque episodes of Glee - it was just fun. And I think the Britney/Brittany episode promises that kind of sensibility.
I dig Britney Spears in a way I do not dig Madonna and most of my childhood was spent listening to Britney Spears, emulating her hairstyles, choreographing dances to her songs etc. A tribute to Britney Spears just appeals and resonates with me a lot more than that hot mess of a Madonna tribute. Also, I’m glad that they’ve got a story in place and that the numbers are part of anaesthesia-induced dream sequences. That was probably why I disliked the Madonna episode so much - the “story” was built around Madonna songs and the notion that they would be singing all Madonna songs was just so far-fetched and it didn’t work. At least dream sequences aren’t real and belief can be suspended for them.
Also, I just love shit like this.
Wall Street 2 topped Friday’s box office easily taking in a healthy $8 million for an estimated weekend cumulative gross of $22.5 million. Falling to second place was last weekend’s number one flick, “The Town”, which managed to gross $5.1 million and is predicted to earn in the region of $16 million for this weekend. Other new entries in the box office chart included Legend of the Guardians - The Owls, which despite being a 3D film and opening in 3, 575 locations, grossed just $5 million on Friday and is expected to earn in the region of $19 million for a second place finish this weekend. Last week’s runner-up Easy A grossed $3.8 million on Friday and is predicted to earn $11.5 million for the weekend. The week’s other major new release, “You Again”, opened in fifth place with a gross of $3.2 million. The film, which stars Kristen Bell, is expected to gross $9.5 million. This mediocre box office performance only furthers my belief that Kristen Bell cannot carry a movie and should stick to supporting roles or make a move back to television. The rest of the box office top ten was rounded out by Devil, Resident Evil - Afterlife 3D, Alpha & Omega, Takers and The American.
Given how hilarious Rachel Dratch was on this show, I think we can expect this to be all kinds of hysterical and awesome.
Chief of NBC and the guy who’s basically responsible for firing Conan.
Bye, Zucker! You’ll be the subject of Hollywood limericks for decades to come, because your second name very conveniently rhymes with “motherfucker”.
YES, IF NOT MORE! Seriously so good!
