Christian Siriano says what everyone’s thinking [hee!]

Posted in hee!, North Americana, Project Runway on May 31, 2008 by jetsamjr

Dear little Christian Siriano put his well-heeled foot in it when asked why the gay community puts up with drag queens:

If you think of heterosexuals, they have white-trash women and trailer parks, and we have drag queens and trannies. I don’t know if I’m the one who can explain it. It’s, like, drag queens are just there. These answers are hard!

Ha! Of course Christian said sorry after some drag queens and trannies got their panties in a bunch, but the apology was about as genuine as the curt smiles he would offer Project Runway judges when they awarded victory in challenges to someone other than him.



OLD-MAN FIIIIIGHT! [Battlestar Galactica – Sine Qua Non]

Posted in Battlestar Galactica, North Americana on May 31, 2008 by jetsamjr

‘Sine Qua Non’ can be likened to a bad dream – emphasis on bad. Every season has a clunker or two (last year’s included the inscrutable ‘The Woman King’), and this week’s patchy instalment proves the rule holds true for season four. Continue reading

Travis out of the house [Big Brother]

Posted in Australiana, Big Brother, news on May 31, 2008 by jetsamjr

… for now, anyway. (I’m actually relieved Travis isn’t gone for good – a reaction that makes me feel a little weird, like when you idly try on a pair of sunglasses thinking they’ll look rubbish but they unexpectedly look a bit cool). Per the official site:

Early [Friday] evening Travis was accidently [sic] squirted in the eye with Shower Gel [sic, again – why is “shower gel” capitalised?] by Ben. Immediately after the incident, Ben assisted Travis in washing out his eye with water. Travis went on and competed in FNL but complained that his eye was  sore and he was feeling unwell.

The Big Brother house doctor was called to attend to Travis, and he recommended that Travis go to hospital to be treated and as a precaution, he stayed there overnight.

Behind Big Brother reveals that Ben “accidently” squirted Travis in the eye with Shower Gel after accidentally ambushing him in the bathroom with accidental assistance from Nobbi and Rory during a prank they accidentally played. Accidents do happen!

Time-travelling bunnies [Lost – There’s No Place Like Home, Parts 2 and 3]

Posted in Lost, North Americana on May 31, 2008 by jetsamjr

In last year’s Lost finale I didn’t twig till the very last minute that Jack was actually having his grizzly-bearded breakdown in the future, not the past, but everyone else in the world seemingly picked that from the get-go and I felt slow, eh.

This year it happened again: I did not see that final scene coming… but I don’t think anyone else did, either. Surely no one who wasn’t making wild silly guesses about the outcome could have picked the ultimate twist. Seriously: W. T. F?! Continue reading

The private life of Chuck Bass [Gossip Girl]

Posted in Gossip Girl, hee!, North Americana on May 30, 2008 by jetsamjr

Gawker has dug up a veritable buttload of pics depicting Gossip Girl‘s Ed Westwick – aka the oily Chuck Bass – goofing around with his friends (including his ridiculously pretty co-star Chace Crawford, like, even if you’re not into pretty guys you have to admit he’s darn pretty).

Shockingly, it turns out the urge to take goofy drunken pictures of yourself is universal.
