R.I.P. PHYLLIS DILLER

Phyllis Diller (July 17, 1917 – August 20, 2012) was an American actress and comedian. She created a stage persona of a wild-haired, eccentrically dressed housewife who makes self-deprecating jokes about her age and appearance, her terrible cooking, and a husband named “Fang”, while pretending to smoke from a long cigarette holder. Diller’s signature was her unusual laugh.

‘One Direction’ Uses Facebook to Deflower and Sodomise Kids?

A website called Christwire.org claims to be the “conservative voice for an unsaved world,” but after reading the religious website’s opinion of boy-band, One Direction, I think it may be CW that needs the saving…

In a blog post entitled, “‘One Direction’ uses Facebook to distribute coital invites,” the post covers gems like 1D’s hidden mission statement, “One Direction (or 1D for their brain-washed fans) is a bisexual British boy band founded for the sole purpose of deflowering and sodomizing our children.” Okay now you’ve gone too far! Bisexual?

Wolf alert! Keep your eyes pealed for any unusual wolf sightings because apparently One Direction Likes to dress like “costumed wolves,” and why would 1D do such a animalistic thing? CW goes on, “The band can be seen on their Youtube traveling whimsically around in their ‘bang bus’, prowling for innocence and virtue to feast upon.” and “After luring their victim to their sin wagon and making a B-line for their genitals, One Direction no doubt bathes in the must of their fornication, using it as inspiration for their next rape-tune.”

Facebook can give you AIDS… “One Direction uses ‘social media’ to attract their friends with Facebook so the spread will be ‘viral’ like an HIV street walker offering free sex.” and “After these girls become pregnant, they are never sure who the father is because of One Direction’s group sex practices.” Oh okay, so the boys have that angle covered too…

Remember kiddies, the interweb isn’t the only place 1D is disseminating mass heathenism according to CW, the band recently landed in America with an agenda: “pillage their way through Christian America (except in California, where they will be met with open arms).” California here I come…

Curb Your Enthusiasm Reunites Seinfeld Cast

Larry David has managed to do the nearly impossible, reunite the entire primary cast of “Seinfeld” for the HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

It has been eleven years since Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jason Alexander and Michael Richards will have appeared on screen together.

Apparently the “Curb” storyline is about the “Seinfeld” cast reuniting in a sort of show within a show, however, David said the cast actually reuniting for any more “Seinfeld” episodes is unlikely.

Is Letterman the New King of Late Night?

Letterman

Letterman

David Letterman has beaten Conan O’Brien in the ratings again.  Last week,The Late Show with David Letterman beat The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien by more than 800,000 viewers.  This is Letterman’s best run since 2000 when he recovered from heart surgery.  He’s had a great guest list, including Sacha Baron Cohen and, most recently, Paul McCartney.  Also, his publicized feud with Gov. Sarah Palin boosted his ratings even more.  Things have really been going well for Mr. Letterman.

Not that Conan’s doing poorly.  He is well-received by the critics and seems to be keeping his fanbase intact.  Indeed, Conan is cleaning up when it comes to the coveted 18-49 age demographic.  That means that while my dad watches Letterman, I’m watching Conan.  As we all know, advertisers are constantly aiming to attract young viewers so NBC is quite happy with Conan’s ratings.  Of course, I’m sure they’d like to be number one.

A little late night competition never hurt anybody.  For viewers, it’s a win-win either way.  David Letterman is hilarious and an obvious influence on Conan O’Brien, who delivers great comedy night after night.  As a late night viewer, I’m happy with both shows.  We can all exist in harmony!  Still, it’s fascinating to watch this little back and forth ratings battle.

Awkward moments at the MTV Movie Awards

I got a chance to watch the awards early and man it turned out to be the most awkward award show of all time.The image you’re looking at above is Sasha Baron Cohen’s ass staring at Eminem’s mortified face. His alter ego “Bruno” flew high above the Gibson Amphitheater donning angel wings and a jock strap to present an award that Zac Efron would go on to win, but not before the wires holding him up malfunctioned and he was conveniently thrust into the audience crotch first into the face of Eminem. There seemed to be plenty anticipatory time for Eminem to stand up and get out of the way, but yet a face full of butt he received. Although he and his crew seemed pretty peeved, I call scripted.  Eminem, MTv and Bruno all stand to gain a ton from the publicity blitz that will follow this messy incident.

That moment would only prove to be one of many awkward moments that we would blessed with upon viewing this years MTV Awards.  I shall chronicle some of these moments in my next few posts. Yikes.
