So is she my father?

Why yes, that is Kristen Wiig wearing a Darth Vader dress at the Emmy's. Love her!

Another round of the game

Hey, I saw a commercial today for a movie about a dude who marries some woman and the kid is convinced he's evil. It's called The Stepfather. I loved that movie!...

...when it was called The Uninvited.

Gettin back in the game

Oh I've been horrid about posting. No bueno. I saw The September Issue the other weekend and loved it. While at said movie I saw a couple of interesting previews. One is for this new movie Precious which is brought to you by Oprah and Tyler Perry, which means to get to the inspirational message of it you have to sit through hopelessly depressing build up. I've worked with enough women and kids who have gone through such things that I do not care to watch it. However this is my second time seeing said preview and only upon second viewing did I realize the dumpy looking social worker is Mariah Carey.

The other preview was for Chris Rock's new comedy-documentary Good Hair. I've also worked with enough black girls to know that they do some shiz to their hair. Using stuff that smells toxic. Now, I went to see September Issue in an independent theather located in the suburb where I work which is seemingly populated by uppity old high class white people who have enough money to blow on everything but tipping properly, and they were all laughing at the trailer, so you know it's going to be interesting.

A kick when she's down

Apparently Jessica Simpson's dog was taken right in front of her by a wild coyote on Monday night. She's offering a reward for anyone that can help give some information or help find the dog. Now, I'm not a fan of Jessica Simpson (I curse the heavens anytime she's in one of my magazines (which is all the time)) but did she really need something else to go wrong for her? I hope she finds her.

Kanye gives a Chris Brown apology

LAH-AME! I get that he's probably sorry, but is he sorry 'cause he got booed at the awards multiple times OR is he actually sorry he ruined someone's night? Apparently the new trend in apologies is to make them on national television and not to the actual person who was wronged.

Touche Vma's

Ah, VMA's, I've spent one night every year for at least 12 years with you. It hasn't always been smooth sailing (Remember Vegas? Yea I wish I didn't either.) Tonight, I had planned on sending you the Dear John letter that every award show dreads. I sadly feel too old (why is 26 too old for Mtv?) to partake in your silliness, BUT then you pulled me back in with an MJ tribute. (A dastardly plan you minx!) I caved and turned it on. The tribute was great:

So I left the awards on in the background while I made dinner and read my beauty blogs promising myself that I would turn it once I was done BUT then Gaga came out and she was just undeniable:

Then this happened:

So now I was hooked. I thought to myself, "Oh, I'll just wait 'til B is done performing":

Then I went and got my laundry with every intention of watching Lost after folding and I walked in on Pink doing crazy acrobats. Singing upside down deserves an award in itself. Stinkin Mtv hasn't posted the video yet (but of course they've taken down the youtube ones already so I'll post it on a later date).

Fuck! Fine I'll watch the whole show ya jerk, but don't think that one lousy Hova performance satiated my need for some Hip Hop. Seriously, besides Kanye, there was only a whisper of it. I did like Russell Brand, but he was quite edited and non existent toward the end, but that was to be expected after last year's Jonas debacle. Next year I'll give you another chance but let's try for something a little less Twilight and various genres of Pop (not that I loathe either)and a little more variety (and Justin). But, in all seriousness, thanks for not totally making me hate myself for watching. It was a decent night.

Just for good measure I thought I'd add my best dressed:

Remember this guy?

Mick: Hey, isn't that what your friend did?
Alison: Sylvia Plath?
Mick: Yeah!
(In response to a scene of a girl who died sticking her head in the oven in a movie.)

Mick: When I'm done here I'm going to go see Spring/Summer 08, it's a movie about the Sears Catalog.
(In response to me going to see The September Issue.)

Ruh roh Raggy...

I just read that Nicole Ritchie is in the hospital giving birth to her second child (boy). Ah, I had no idea she was even preggers! Am I slipping?!

If You Give a Moose a Muffin...

I am a huge fan of YouTube. I watch makeup videos or "tutorials" as they're called on the 'Tube almost everyday. Yesterday, while watching these tutorials, I saw a link to a video by a user called communitychannel entitled 'my precious', being a Lord of the Rings fan (and an owner of a cat named Gollum) I clicked it. Hilarity ensued:

Now, if you don't like or watch Lord of the Rings (ahem, batgirl) you may not get the actual references, but you may find the idea of the video hilarious. I do, but maybe it's because I quote things all the time and a lot of times people have no idea what I'm talking about.

Another reason to love her!

Drew Barrymore is inviting people in Detroit to go rollerskating to celebrate Whip It coming out. You can bring your own skates or rent them for free. How cute is that?

From The City to The Hills and back again

Oh my goodness. The City looks like it's going to get pretty good and thankfully no sign of Adam and Allie and Jay, though I will miss Erin. And please God let Olivia fall on her pretty little face. As for The Hills, augh. Look for Stacey the Bartender chilling with Kristin when she's making fun of Brody. I truly don't think I can stomach that show anymore...though I do enjoy the last several seconds of the preview although Heidi and I agreeing on something makes me uneasy.

Oh. My. Dad.

I saw this Twitter account referenced on an acquaintance's Facebook page and decided to check it out because I liked the name. But wow- the name is only a little hint of a glimmer in to the brilliance of these tweets:

Here is one I found from the past few weeks, with much less swearing than most of them (it almost makes me feel like my bro doesn't swear THAT much- he swears slightly less than this guy's dad). You gotta check this dude out.
"Your brother brought his baby over this morning. He told me it could stand. It couldn't stand for shit. Just sat there. Big let down."

Eve Pinky

Whitney Port created a lipstick color for the cosmetics brand Cargo and I wants it! (They also have one that Evangeline Lilly created that I'll probably get) It's cruelty free, all natural (there's even wildflower seeds in the box so you can plant it) and $2 dollars from every sale goes to charity. Have I convinced you, pocketbook, that I need this?

Love, love, love

l would like to inform you about something very important, something near and dear to my heart:

Pumpkin Spice Lattes are back at Starbucks.
I knew it was coming what with it being September and all. And now, here it is! There is a Venti one right next to me! And it is DELICIOUS! In L.A. it was the only way to tell that it was fall. (You knew it was winter when it rained for a week and everyone drove like grandmothers and then they put up Christmas decorations even though there was no snow.) Now, I know I need to watch calories and money, so I'm going to try and tone it down a little this year (talls will be what I shoot for, I had to rock the venti today cause it's my day off and clearly the first one of the season had to be huge), but it's going to be tough. And it certainly does not help that there is a Starbucks in the mall where I work. Speaking of which I'm supposed to be looking for a job not blogging about life-altering hot beverages...Hmm, I wonder if Starbucks is hiring in their marketing department.

New York, New York

Guess what started filming today!


I'm liking the new show after Runway about the models. I think it's interesting to show the entire model picking process in more detail, especially since they're changing models everytime now. This week was interesting as one model, Fatma, has apparently developed a crush on her designer from the first 2 challenges, Logan. Now I cannot blame girlfriend as he is very pretty, but it was quite humorous to watch her talking about him to another model. She was beside herself because when she told him he liked the fabric he'd picked out he said he thought it would go well with her skin. So of course she's all blah blah blah, he was thinking of ME! Um, sweetie, he was thinking of how best to make HIS design look best on his model. Trust me, he didn't do it to pledge model allegiance to you.

Fast forward to model elimination, when all of the girls are stressing out because no one wants to be picked by Mitchell, who has been in the bottom 2 of the first 2 challenges. So guess who he picks? Why, Fatma of course! She makes her feelings on this clearly known when she is seen walking out on the runway screen clawing at the air. Of course Logan is the next person to go and handles it gracefully. Although he does pick the girl next to Fatma which Fatma of course takes as him being SO very flustered over losing her that he just picks whoever was nearest to her. She goes on and on. Not only has she lost her true love but her new designer can't sew! Oh, the humanity!

I have to say, Mitchell kinda sucks but I do feel for him a little because next challenge I imagine she is going to be quite difficult. Here's hoping he picks the most flattering fabric possible for her. I mean, it's all about her, right?
