Well, it is Thursday night, March Madness is in full effect, and for weeks, certain shows have been on break, waiting to return after Easter. Tonight, the only show in the world that truly matters, Community, took a break. I could write about Parks and Rec, which was new, but my fervent love for Leslie Knope and her greatness requires far more mental energy than I have right now, considering I spent the day battling a five year old in tag, hide and seek, Candyland, and “let’s cry a lot and see if Aunt Kat will buy me ice cream.” I already know I can’t give Parks and Rec the write up that it truly deserves tonight, but what I can show you is something both sexy and cute.
So, her Katitude has been asking me for nigh on ages now to write something. And I have.
Sort of. Continue reading
Ready for a self-indulgent exhausted macabre ramble about American Horror Story and nothing else of value?
I’ve been really mean about Community lately. I’ve been nitpicking and finding reasons to get mad at the show, missing the point of some gags while complaining about others being unfunny. But tonight, I think I finally got over my television ex-boyfriend Dan Harmon’s departure, because I found a new boyfriend that looks a lot like him, and while he doesn’t have entirely the same level of intelligence, he’s still pretty bright, and still knows how to deliver where it counts. You may nudge nudge wink wink.
It is the tradition of I Like Weird Stuff to celebrate the underdogs, and the world of entertainment is full of them. In the realm of acting, thousands of accomplished and regularly working actors play vital roles in a variety of films and television shows and are often recognized but unnamed because they are not the big ticket stars. We just know they are “That Guy,” the one that has played so many parts that you can’t hardly remember even one, but you intrinsically know you have seen them many times before. Last month(ish), we celebrated the original That Guy, the great Kurt Fuller. This month we will learn the name of Blu Mankuma.
There’s a period between young-adulthood and adulthood when the training wheels rust off and you’re forced to either be responsible for your adult life or fall apart completely. It is at this point that a person either needs to stop being self-involved and insecure, or start making a lot of money to allow themselves to continue to be self-involved and insecure. Let’s all not feel bad for Hannah Horvath. Continue reading
Community’s meta-inventiveness lends itself naturally to the Documentary format, and exploring that format through the show’s Spock has always yeilded great results. Advanced Documentary Filmmaking is the new creative crew’s attempt to delve deeply into Abed’s preferred form of communication. Though not without some glaring failures, the show was an overall success.
Sex is one of the most powerful compulsive basic needs that most people have. People go to great lengths to meet sexual partners and often have sex for the worst reasons, or just to have it. But when we see sex in the media, all we generally see are passionate kisses and powerful thrusts, arched backs and throes of pleasure. Fortunately, Lena Dunham, writer, producer, and star of HBO’s Girls, hasn’t felt any compulsion to give in to that fantasy idea of sex. She has no problem coming out and telling the world that sex is kind of weird, even though we all want it.
Americans need to give their loyalty to Great Leader. The secret that we have not been told is that North Korea (BEST KOREA) supplies all of our food supplies and raw materials, purely out of their own goodness. Great Leader Kim Jong Un will come and bring us rescue from our squalor and sadness.
Those of you familiar with Ryan Lewis and Macklemore’s anti-consumerist super hit “Thrift Shop” might not be aware that this blonde lyrical juggernaut has been in the music business for over ten years. In the mean time, he’s produced deeply personal and soulful rap songs, reflecting on his triumphs and struggles. He’s also produced a song written by unicorns to be performed at an audience of the Gods. That song is called “And We Danced.”
