Wish I was there moment:
Weezer covering MGMT and Lady Gaga:
Don’t know why I love bands covering other people’s stuff so much but I do.
LOOK AT HIM BITING HIS LOWER LIP!
I’m totally yoinking this from the lovely Bluebirds Are So Natural girls because it’s fucking amazing:
Bouncing foxes make me swear.
Addicted to Weeds
Weeds has quickly become one of my all time favourite tv programmes. I’d actually rate it somewhere up there with Buffy, Lost, and even America’s Next Top Model. But don’t let that put you off – I also like ‘cool’ shows like The Wire and Band of Brothers and ….. ok so that’s about all the cool shows I like but trust me on this: Weeds is a very, very, decent programme.
It stars Mary Louise Parker as Nancy Botwin, a widowed mother of two living in the leafy suburbs of Agresso. Left alone to raise Silas and Shane, she turns to pot dealing to keep up with the never-ending bills. This in turn leads to many off-the-wall crises where the pretty suburban mom has to use her charms and wit to get out of some seriously sticky situations. The show has a dark, dark sense of humour dealing with issues such as cancer, drug addiction, drug dealing (!), torture, the crazy-ass US military – and those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head – but it deals with them with such great wit and timing that you can’t help laughing along. And then realising you are soooo going to hell.
The actors are supremely funny, especially Mary Louise Parker who I have to admit to having the biggest lady-crush on ever. She has a perfect sense of comic timing, and is utterly believable in her various acts of despair, anger and lust. Oh the lust!
The episodes are short and easy to digest at roughly 25 minutes long. The seasons are relatively short also with about 12 to 13 episodes in each. I’ve just finished re-watching season 4 and was delighted to read that season 5 is airing on the 8th of June after an extremely interesting cliff-hanger.
If you haven’t watched any of Weeds before, I’d highly recommend it (can’t you tell!) and it’s quite easy to pick up on, even if you don’t know the back stories. It’s worth watching for Mary Louise Parker alone – I dare you not to fall in love with her.
Roll on season 5!

Smiling with my eyes
No matter how many times I try, I can never master the smiling-with-your-eyes trick that the lovely miss Tyra Banks of ANTM (best.show.EVAR) has made so very famous. I’ve probably watched every episode of ANTM at least twice, but still I cannot get it down. I either look like I’m vaguely squinting at something in the far off distance or else I’m actually smiling. With my mouth.
Luckily for me, Miss Tyra has given a few tips that I will go home and practice in front of the mirror tonight. (Drunk).
The Flirting-With-a-Man Smile: “Turn your shoulder to your man, move your face down, and use a sound effect, a little hmmmmmmmmm.”
The Surprise Smile: “We’re not smiling like the surprise is real — it’s not ‘OMG, are you serious?’” It’s a hand to the cheek, and a gasp. Remember, the surprise isn’t like, swine flu or an unexpected breakup; it’s more of a “I forgot my contacts at home!”
The Catalogue Smile: “Put the left foot forward, and turn your head ahead as if there’s wind whipping you that way, and smile with your hand on your head and parted teeth. So walk forward with your hand on your right cheek, and step with your left foot, so your booty sticks out.”
The Angry Smile: Save this one for “bitches.” You move a hand to your hip, look forward, “dip that booty to the right,” and let your face say “Okay, okay, okay, uh-huh.”
The Smile With the Eyes ©: “This is crucial… It’s on magazine covers, it sells perfume, it sells shoes.” Tyra recommends pulling your shoulders down, facing forward, pretending there’s a string pulling your head up and that a dentist shot you in the mouth with Novocain. She said it’s “almost like you’re in Star Trek.”
Right ya are so!
Why the f*ck do you have a kid?
Because everyone needs an excuse to get out of gym class:
Via my new favourite bloggy: Why the f*ck do you have a kid?
It’s mean, pretty tasteless, sometimes NSFW, but it makes me laugh and that is all that matters…. right?
Can’t get it out of my head
It’s probably to do with my burgeoning Allison Iraheta obsession (17 year old currently rocking it out on American Idol) but lately, I cannot get this song out of my head:
Heart – Alone
I think it may have to be my new karaoke song. Sorry people.
EDIT: This happens to me EVERYTIME. Why do my videos always disappear as soon as I post them? Le sigh. Anyways, it *should* be up there now.
