Judge This!

If GW ever shuts the hell up, the magic triumvirate will finally grace my TV. This State of the Union Address is running way long. Surprised Simon has not found a way to cut the feed. Disastrous. Absolutely, terrible.

Apparently the judges are being too critical this season. Please. Contestants willingly sign up for a reality television program and we are supposed to be forgiving when they make asses of themselves? As if.

God, I wish I knew how to quit you!

Ah.... cowboy love. They were shut out at the SAG awards last night, but I am thinking Oscar will show them a little love. The parodies are almost as good as the movie. The gay subtext of Top Gun has longed been hinted at and Quentin Tarantino said as much in his monologue in Sleep With Me. So Bareback Top Gun comes as no surprise.There is also a great trailer for another love that could never be – that of Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett Brown in Brokeback to the Future. And for those techie geeks, there is the short but sweet Broke Mac Mountain.
