There are just so many random thoughts running through my mind! It must be just another Manic Monday!
Saturday Night Live premiered over the weekend with host Amy Poehler and musical guest Katy Perry. With the addition of four new cast members and special walk-on guests Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey, Rachel Dratch, Maya Rudolph, Justin Timberlake and probably a few others that I’m forgetting, they still couldn’t manage any real LOLs. Katy didn’t sound all that great in her performance of California Gurls, but Teenage Dream sounded alright. At least she wasn’t lip-syncing. The only time I chuckled was when NY Governor Patterson showed up to spar with Fred Armisen’s Governor Patterson character. But overall, the opening of season 36 was a big, lame “Meh.” Just like all of season 35. And 34. And…
Those of you that know me know that I hate weather. I hate experiencing it, I hate talking about it, I just hate weather. But what do I hate most of all? When the stupid air pressure changes quickly and makes my head feel like it’s going to explode. On top of that, the leaves start falling and rotting … emitting mold spores that make my nose run like a faucet. I may be vegan, a recycling fanatic, obsessed with conserving water and electricity … but fuck that. Pump up the damn A/C so I can breathe! And turn it on high!
Glee premiered last week, and it was … spectacular! The two new kids fit in well, and how great is the name: Sunshine Corazon? I only wish that Sue had interrupted Billionaire instead of Asian Gaga and Rachel’s Telephone. And how great is Dot Jones’ Coach Shannon Beiste? I laughed, I cried, and for a second … I thought it was Ken Tanaka in makeup!
American Idol officially announced what everyone has been groaning about for months. Next season’s judges will be Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson. After all the promotion I did for Idol here at C&R, I was disappointed that they didn’t accept my suggestions of Perez Hilton, Howard Stern, Paula Abdul and Joshrico. Ridiculous, I tell you. Simply ridiculous. Is anyone even going to watch the show anymore?
I know that you don’t care, but I ate dinner at an awesome restaurant in New Hope, PA on Saturday! Sprig & Vine: Pure Vegetarian is simply awesome. I only dream of them Googling themselves, finding this mention on C&R and offering me a free dinner. Please?
Undercovers was fun, right? The new show from producer J.J. Abrams felt kind of Alias without the sci-fi aspect. Clearly there’s more going on than meets the eye … as we can tell from Major Dad‘s secret phone calls and aside comments. It should be fun … hopefully they don’t cancel it.
I also thought The Event was pretty good too, but it feels like it could quickly turn into Heroes. To much concept, not enough… good writers?
An finally, the results are in on our latest game of Have You Ever… and some of you are public restroom pervs! (Click to enlarge!)
So basically, all I can think about is television, perverse restroom behavior, and awesome food … until my head explodes. It hasn’t happened yet, but it might. What’s on your mind today? Tell me about your Manic Monday in the comments!
