Actually it probably isn’t. BUT WHATEVER.


Season 10.

I’m on hiatus at the moment. My schedule is very sucky at the moment, and I don’t particularly want to spend two hours of my weekend watching SPN, so I’m not sure when I will do another recap. I’ll still post random things here and there though, so try not to miss my sparking wit too much :)

OS: One Big Happy


This show is usually one that I’d ignore but I loved Elisha Cuthbert on Happy Endings and thought that maybe she would be playing the exact same character here only with a different name, friends, show etc. Ironically enough, Nick Zano, who plays the other main character was on Happy Endings also. Unfortunately, that does not take away from the fact that this show sucks. That might be down to the fact that Kelly Brook is it. She’s sort of like a, lite version of every other topless model who ends up in things like Piranha 3D. The British jokes are predictably eye-roll worthy, along with every other joke. It literally felt like time had stopped. It’s flat. Even the laugh track (if it didn’t have one, my brain automatically provided one) seemed flat.

Plot wise, the show is about two best friends (Lizzie and Luke? I can’t even remember their names) having a baby together. Plot twist, she’s a lesbian and he’s a guy who’s never even spent the night with anyone. So naturally, he meets someone, falls in love and gets married all within the space of three days. Bigger plot twist, Lizzie turns out to be pregnant! Everything else that happened was really irrelevant to me but I’m sure we’re about to embark on a series of exciting adventures until someone at NBC cancels the show.

Somehow it ended up being sort of worse than Undateable, a show that is miraculously still on air for reasons unbeknownst to everyone. I’ll probably still watch it though and pretend that it’s an alternative universe of Happy Endings (heck, there was an episode where Elisha’s character had to pretend to be a lesbian. Totally works).

Jared Padalecki wants you know that….

Let me tell you how much this book sucks.


The book in question: The Slap

So after all the hoopla about Uma Thurman’s face and all of the publicity it generated for her new show, I decided to see what ‘The Slap’ was about and saw that it was based on a book. The summary makes it sound compelling:

At a barbecue in suburban Melbourne, a man slaps a three-year-old boy across the face. The child, Hugo, has been misbehaving without any intervention by his parents, “the steely-eyed Rosie and the wimpish Gary”. The slapper is Harry, cousin of the barbecue host and adulterous businessman whose slightly older son, Rocco, is being threatened by Hugo. This event sends the other characters “into a spiral, agonising and arguing over the notion that striking a child can ever be justified. Some believe a naughty boy should be taught some discipline others maintain the police ought to be brought in to investigate a common assault” with a range of positions in between.

Throwback Thursday


So I’ve been on an old music kick of late, and when digging through old CDs, I found an old copy of Beautiful Soul and thus began my week of listening to every single Jesse Mac song ever to be made.

Naturally, I migrated to YouTube where I stumbled upon this:

This song used to be my jam, but the video never fails to amuse me. It’s like a four minute road safety video without the car crash. I especially like the part at the 1:59 mark when Ludacris shows up….holding chains connected to two different moving cars….as he stands on another car. Quite what message we’re supposed to take from the video I don’t know. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall during the concept meeting. The car theme seems to come up in a lot his videos even though he still looks like he’s not tall enough to reach a steering wheel. :P

The story so far: once upon a time, Jesse wanted you and your  beautiful soouuuul His blond bowl-cut hair is kind of hilarious. And there was that time he lived because you lived. And then he just wanted you to know, that he’s right where you want him, because he can’t let you go. Oh, and there was the was the whole Disney thing (the lip syncing is quite funny in this one). And then he was leavin‘, but not before letting you know that he didn’t speak Japanese, Spanish or French but your body language definitely made sense.

We also can’t forget that time that you were his (and the rest of Dreamstreet’s) sugar rush! LOL at the kid with the red glasses…oh and something happened every time down on Dreamstreet. Apparently. The end of the video makes the song seem a lot less innocent than advertised…hahahaha.

laughing gifMost recently, Jesse’s moved onto some girl who’s Superbad, presumably because beautiful souls aren’t very 2014. His fans don’t seem to like this new Jesse, because the old one actual had morals or something. It’s all very amusing.

Typical comment to be found on each video: OMG JESSE MCCARTNEY SHOULD BE WHERE BIEBER IS NOW. Be careful what you wish for JMac-ers (I think I cried internally at this term still being a thing. I thought we left it behind us in 2008!)

Ah, these videos make me feel old, lol.

stupid and senseless #65: Jared Padalecki and his quest to school all existing airlines (into knowing who he is) continues!!


s&s

Thanks to Jess for telling me about this. I think Jared vs Airlines is the most hilariously sad thing I’ve ever come across in recent times. It has everything! Outrage over lack of upgrades! Outrage over the fact that man can’t control the weather! Illicit pictures of employees!!! A saviour complex!! Harassing employees via Twitter!! Bitchiness! Everything!!!

And it’s followed us along into 2015. THANK GOD. I need someone to bitch about, and who else than Rapunzlecki?!

Because he doesn’t ever seem to have any real work to do (IT’S SO HARD BEING WALLPAPER ON YOUR OWN SHOW, GUYS!), he found the time to tweet this:

Which, okay, yeah (Like Jared, I am #TeamMisuseOfCommas). If he wants to go around comparing business class ticket prices then that’s his choice.

His response to US Airways didn’t seem quite right though…

Jess quite rightly pointed out that he said ‘billionaire‘ instead of ‘millionaire‘(nor did he stop after saying he couldn’t afford it)… implying (hahahahaha) that he can actually afford the ticket (and well know that he can). Of course, that’s not the rhetoric he’s going for here. I’m sure that he’s concerned about all of those other non-rich people who can afford to fly (but not in business!!) because there aren’t people out there with real problems. *eye roll* Now that saying ‘firstworldproblems’ isn’t cool anymore, I’m going to start referring to everything as a Rapunzlecki Problem. ‘Oh, darn it, I forgot to watch the show! #rapunzleckiproblem!’.

If anything, all of this time that he spends on getting outraged over airlines could be used to choose a haircut that doesn’t make him look like he has a ugly, brown, snail-shell esque bowl on his head.

He really does need to get his priorities straight.

Supernatural’s renewal is a good thing!


So the show’s been renewed for an eleventh season, just like we all knew it would be. For the past few seasons my reaction to its baffling renewal each year has been:
