8 Things I Will Not Miss About “Lost”

After six seasons and hundreds of instances of Hurley saying “dude,” “Lost” finally comes to an end this Sunday night in a two-and-a-half hour series finale episode. Tonight is the last hour-long episode — titled “What They Died For” — before that finale (“The End”), and it’s got me thinking about all the things I’ll miss when the show goes off the air … Sawyer’s nicknames and the books he inspired me to add to my reading list; the love stories of Desmond and Penny, Nadia and Sayid, and Jin and Sun; Ben’s diabolical delivery and wit; and most of all, I’ll miss the mystery. But you know what? There are some things that I will not miss about “Lost,” things that I will be happy to see vacate my life when the show is over. Here are eight things I’ll be happy to wave goodbye to when “Lost” is over. Keep reading »

Remote Control: What You’ll Want To Watch The Week of May 17th 2010


The television giveth and it taketh away. While it’s upfronts week and we’re getting to hear about all the awesome new shows that will be starting in the fall, this week also wraps up the season for many of the shows we already love. This week alone brings the season finale of “House” (will Hugh Laurie stop being a meanie?), “90210″ (who will Liam ask on his boat—Naomi or Annie?), “V” (what will Erica do with her invite to the mothership?), “Grey’s Anatomy” (what ailment will guest star Mandy Moore have?), “Bones” (can we even watch this show knowing that David Boreanaz is a sleaze?), and “30 Rock” (is Matt Damon really the man of Liz Lemon’s dreams?). And, of course, “Lost.” If the trailer for Sunday night’s two-and-a-half-hour season finale (starting at 9 p.m. on ABC) doesn’t give you chills, well, you’re probably not human. After the jump, previews for other shows you will not want to miss this week. Keep reading »

“Law & Order” Canceled: 10 Reasons We’re Sad To See It Go

I am sure you’ve heard the news that, because of steadily declining ratings, “Law & Order” has been canceled after 20 seasons. The final episode of the show will air on May 24th, guest-starring Olympic gold medalist Lindsey Vonn. In the end, “Law & Order” will tie with “Gunsmoke” for the longest-running drama, but will not surpass it. Thankfully, the show’s legacy is not over. NBC has renewed “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and is introducing a sister series, “Law & Order: Los Angeles” or “LOLA.” To me, canceling a classic show to create such a similar one is a “New Coke” situation waiting to happen.

There will be “Law & Order” reruns, likely until the end of time, but since we are still a little hurt that we have to say goodbye, read on for 10 reasons we are sorry to see “L&O” go. Keep reading »

Grannies For Gaga

If Lady Gaga got all of her “little monsters” together, she could probably start a Gaga-lution. But not all of her monsters are so little. As it so happens, Gaga is involved in a good romance with the over-50 crowd. What should we call them? “Big monsters”? Apparently, the “big monsters” are all about Gaga’s music. Step away from the iPod, Grandma! Must make some lively bridge conversation. If she has such a big elderly following, does this mean she’ll consider doing an all-geriatric concert, no earplugs necessary? After the jump, PopEater caught up with a few of Gaga’s most mature monsters. Keep reading »

Can We Please Bring Jazzercise Back?

Exercise trends come and go. Right now it’s all about yoga, all 700 variations of it. Yoga is fabulous, but sometimes it’s just too serious. Don’t you ever want to make a joke while everyone is in Downward Dog? Don’t you ever want to hear some music instead of listening to yourself breathe for 90 minutes? I do. I was hanging out with my brother last night and he reminded me about the exercise craze in our house for the first half of the ’80s. Every morning my mother and I used to put on leotards and leg warmers and pop in Judi Sheppard Missett’s hour-long Jazzercise workout video. And I’m sure we weren’t the only people on the block sweating with Judi. Jazzercise was huge, until it got ousted by step aerobics, which my dad was totally into, by the way. Keep reading »

Jessica’s Awesome Affirmation


Up until about 10 minutes ago, I was having a kind of “meh” day — I don’t think I got enough sleep this weekend, I’m stressed about a couple things, and I’m having a bad hair day. Then I saw this awesome video, of young Jessica standing in front of her bathroom mirror proclaiming all the things she loves about her life and herself, and I thought, Man, what a great idea! So, just as soon as I’ve hit “submit” on this post, I’m headed to The Frisky’s loo for an enthusiastic affirmation session of my own, cribbing Jessica’s own words to start — I can do anything good!

Stereomood Plays Music For Your Every Mood

I found out about Stereomood this weekend through Gala Darling. What’s Stereomood, you ask? Well, it’s an online music player that lets you pick a playlist according to your mood. The front page of the site has a text cloud from which you pick the word that best describes your mindset. Among the choices: Dreamy, Groovy, Sex, Driving Route 66, Feel Like Crying, and Snuggle. Then you get an entire soundtrack tailored to your state of mind. If you register, you can make your own mood list, and you can buy tracks off iTunes or Amazon. They call it “emotional internet radio,” but we call it awesome. My favorite is Epic, which includes Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Mogwai, and a bunch of other weird stuff.

Accidental Penis: Site Devoted To The Unintentionally Phallic

Got a bad case of the Mondays? I know what you need! You need the Accidental Penis. Accidental Penis, unlike the deliberate penis you were perhaps lucky enough to get over the weekend, is a Tumblr blog devoted to all things that unintentionally look like wangs. While these photos are pretty SFW, you may want to wait until you get home to peruse. A side glance from a co-worker could cause some raised eyebrows. [via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
