Gentlemen, Start Your Tivo/DVR/Antiquated VCR

I'm pleased as very alcoholic punch to announce that a very special 1/2 hour tv show version of "Rock Band 2 the Stars" is airing on VH1 at 5:30pm on Thanksgiving, 11/27. It's just the thing to watch as you're drifting in and out of a tryptophan induced food coma.

So! Don't forget!

Thursday, 11/27 at 5:30pm! Only on VH1!

You can also catch the 1/2-hour tv special show on VH1 Classic:
Friday, 11/28 at 11pm!
Monday, 12/1 at 3:30 pm!
Friday, 12/5 at 2:30am!

I have Time Warner Cable and it comes up as "Rock Band 2" in my DVR list. The more you know!!!

A Brief Nattering of Thoughts on Grey's Anatomy

I was talking to my friend Lindsay at a wedding last weekend about how much we hate Grey's Anatomy, and yet we're still watching it. And after last week's episode, I'm not sure I can keep on keeping on with it. I mean, besides the opening monologues, which are such disgustingly masturbatory pieces of writing (eg: "As surgeons, we reach inside the human body and cut out the damaged parts, but, really, who reaches into us and cuts out our bad parts?") and now the fact that there's a perma-Denny-ghost who follows Izzie around. I will just say this:

this show will be off of my DVR list unless it turns out that Denny is actually a Cylon, a la the Six who is in Baltar's head. Seeing as Izzie followed the Navajo's advice (also, was that Navajo storyline PLUS the Asperger's storyline not vaguely offensive? And also made me miss Heather Kuzmich really badly) and burnt Denny's sweater and Denny is still around as ghost-Denny, then I'm thinking very strongly that Denny is actually a Cylon. Also, Madame President Roslyn as an Aspergery cardiac surgeon must be a not-so-subtle clue that Gr'anatomy is heading very quickly in Balactica territory. Please go back to being a President, Laura Roslyn! Cardiac surgeons on Grey's Anatomy have the worst careers ever -- they either make homophobic slurs off camera and get shit-canned or else they become lesbians that the network homophobically decides are too lesbionic for their show and they get shit-canned (even if they're the same person who once rubbed the lotion on its skin or else it gets the hose again). Please, President Roslyn, spare yourself before you meet the same fate.

Rock Band 2 The Stars - episode 5

It's up! And it's all about MAAAAAAAAKEOVERS! (Who doesn't love the makeover episode?)

Scraps is Hypoallergenic AND a Mutt!

It's a lolbex!

And for the record, Scraps is perfect for the Obamas because this puppy will not trigger Malia's allergies, and is also a Mutt (of the Polish/Ukrainian variety).

Scraps Would Very Much Like to Be The Obamas' New Puppy

So, you know how sometimes you go to the So You Think You Can Dance live show and you get all excited about the world, and maybe earlier that day you tweeted that you'd like to throw your hat into the ring and be considered for the Obamas' new puppy? And then you get home from the SYTYCD tour, and you rode the path train by yourself because your friends had to leave early, and you were thinking about back in your early 20s when you, like, made stuff? And anyway, when you get home you log into facebook and all these people have made comments about your thing about wanting to be the Obamas' new puppy? I don't know. Maybe you paint your face like a dog and speak into your macbook. Or maybe that's just me.

O-mazingly awesome!

In Case You Weren't Quite Sure

Question: Can we be very drunk on Election Night and surge the streets and join the impromptu street party in front of the Obama storefront on 105th street and totally shut down Broadway with our awesomes and our "O-ba-ma" chanting?

Yes we can.

Tweet Tweet Tweedely Deet

Oooh-ey, I am just back from pilates and boy is my back tired! No, really! It is. My back. It's tired. Not my arms, because I didn't just fly in from San Francisco. Thank you, tip your waitress.

So I very much enjoy Twitter, mostly because it's the best part of Facebook (the status updates) without the Vampire/Crush on You/Movie Quiz clutter. I guess I just like to know what other people are doing. It makes me feel connected. And we all need to feel connected, am I right ladies 'n' gendearms? Exactly. So, as testament to what is awesome about Twitter, and because it is almost midnight and I spent the night making Obama-themed snacks for tomorrow night's Election Watching of joy (right? Can I say that? Surely, it's going to happen? For the good? Great Scott, I can't even deal with it. Squeeeeeeeeeee) and I am just now enjoying a dinner of Soygurt and settling in to watch my tv (I watch SO MUCH TV! You'd never believe it if I told you! It is SO GREAT that I don't sleep!)and I was like "ooh, time to twitter!" (I guess you're supposed to say "time to tweet" but that makes me feel squirmy). And so, to testify as to why I like the twitter the oh so much, let me share this exchange (names changed from twitter names to actual first names, because, oddly enough, that guarantees anonymity! Say WHUT? I know. Googleability, ur doing it wrong!). Henceforth:

Bex: will not be able to sleep tonight. is this how the non-jews feel on Xmas eve (20 minutes ago)

Tom (in response): YES! (19 minutes ago)

Ben (in response to Tom's response): GAAAAAAA (17 minutes ago)

Bex (in response to Ben's response to Tom's response): egads! i suddenly grok all those Xmas cartoons & stopmotion tv shows. Good grief. I'll put out (soy) milk & cookies (15 minutes ago)

And then right after that, it's
BarackObama: Asking you to vote Nov. 4th. Visit http://VoteForChange.com, call 877-874-6226 or text VOTE to 62262 to find your polling locations

So. Yeah. Twitter. I loves it.

Get Out the Motherfrakking Vote

Greetings, to all ten of the 13-year old boys who read this blog. If you're over 18 and registered to vote, please tie a string around your finger so that you remember to vote tomorrow. If you don't vote for Obama, then I probably don't even want to speak to you again, so, hey, it's been real.

And if you do vote for Obama, then we'll remain friends.

If that's not enough to sway you moronic undecideds out there, then I don't know what you people are waiting for.



This wallaby has a sad. The same sort of sad I will have if you do not vote for Obama.
