Bad news, everybody! [The Simpsons]

Posted in news, North Americana, The Simpsons, video, WTF? on February 15, 2009 by jetsamjr

You guys, I have some terrible news: after 20 years, The Simpsons has a new opening credits sequence:

Eeeewww it’s all new and different and I hate it. This is worse than the time that… um, it’s worse than the time that… well, it’s not worse than any other times, because this is the worst thing that’s ever happened!

Hate to say this, but: time to kill it, Groening.

And you thought the real Paula Abdul was a nutbag… [American Idol]

American IdolThis is the point where I stop pitying Paula Goodspeed, the Paula Abdul stalker who committed suicide outside the front of the American Idol judge’s home last year, and go back to thinking that she was just a crazy weirdo:

A post-mortem examination of Goodspeed’s body revealed a variety of piercings and body art, some of which were “artificial” tattoos drawn with makeup or paint. Vladimir Levicky, a deputy medical examiner, noted that during the autopsy “another tattoo is found over the inner aspect of the lower lip. It appears to read the name ‘Paula Abdul.'”

She had “Paula Abdul” tattooed inside her mouth?! That poor woman. (Aww… see, I do feel sorry for her after all.)

Blake Lively is on the cover of Vogue… or rather, a young women who kinda looks like Blake Lively is on the cover of Vogue:

Gossip Girl

Seriously, who is this girl? Is it possible that Blake is really nothing without her great set of wild and luxurious blonde hair extensions?

Gossip Girl

I hope you weren’t enjoying watching Gossip Girl on Channel Nine or anything, because the network has gone and pulled the cult teen drama from their schedule, effective immediately.

To be fair, relatively few people were watching the series on free-to-air TV… which may have something to do with the fact that it aired at 10.30pm. And that all the episodes were more than a year old. Well played, Nine.

I hate this message SO MUCH [WTF?]

Not residing in the States, I’m tempted to commit harakiri whenever I see this screen littering my favourite US blogs:


AARGH. I hate Australia.

Shut up, you horrible little man [news]

Posted in news, North Americana, reality TV, Ugly Betty, WTF? on December 13, 2008 by jetsamjr

Have you ever seen Flipping Out? It’s a terrible reality show starring a horrible little man called Jeff Lewis, who goes around renovating houses and being awful to people.

Anyway, Lewis is involved with a legal stoush with Ugly Betty‘s Ashley Jensen, because he’s renovating the house next door to hers and she and her husband aren’t happy about it. Weirdly and obnoxiously, Lewis has released a deluded statement accusing Jensen of suing him purely to “increase [her] media exposure”. Because it’s totally plausible that the Emmy-nominated star of Extras and Ugly Betty would go after an attention-starved reality whore for publicity.
