Who’s Got A Hangover? Spring Break Week on Dancing With the Stars, Season 20, Episode 6

Who’s Got A Hangover? Spring Break Week on Dancing With the Stars, Season 20, Episode 6

For some college students, Spring Break is a time of R&R after the stress of college midterms; but for others, it’s an annual right of passage where bikini and tank top-clad coeds make a host of ill-advised decisions that (hopefully) won’t follow them for the rest of their lives. Thankfully, this week’s theme on DWTS is a nod to the music and vibe of the beach, and not the drunken orgies that we see on MTV and the news. And in Dancing With The Stars, Season 20, Episode 6, in addition dancing to a spring break-inspired song, the remaining contestants will … Continue reading

This Alaskan Bush People parody trailer is just damn awesome

Alaskan Bush People Art Hack parody

Some wonderful bastards at Art Hack Studio in Denver gave Discovery Channel’s Alaskan Bush People the Robot Chicken treatment and it’s just magnificent. Behold: They’ve captured the absurdity of the show without doing anything particularly outrageous. Love how they depict Bear (with kung fu grip?) punching the fish. My only criticism is that the Ami figure looks way too attractive. Gotta add the infected teeth. Sounds like Art Hack has a lot more ABP stuff in the works. Can’t wait to see it. And then will come a day when we’ll all be disappointed to learn their ABP figures have … Continue reading

Recap: Little Women: NY Episode 4 “Mardi Gras Melee”

Little Women: NY Episode 4

Can we all agree that last week’s burlesque performance was a sexy disaster? Not because of what happened onstage — that was fine and fierce — but because of the negativity afterwards. Jordanna got an opportunity to showcase her burlesque troop and invited her friends to join her in a sultry number, and Jazmin got her first taste of the spotlight, but Dawn’s vocal disapproval ruined the entire night. Dawn is extremely outspoken against little people exploiting their height and performing as elves and leprechauns, but I don’t understand why she is such a hater of little people simply performing … Continue reading

Recap: The Royals, Episode 5

The Royals, Episode 5

I spent the weekend in glorious San Francisco, so I’m just catching up on the TV I missed… If you had a friend whose closet size rivaled the fashion closet at Runway magazine in The Devil Wears Prada, would you hate her? Only if she wasn’t my size! Ophelia has so many gasp-inducing clothing options that it must be so fun for the show’s wardrobe department to dress her. She gets to be avant garde, sexy, trashy, dirty and classy at any given moment, and often, she get to be more than one choice at a time! The royal ball … Continue reading
