Behold, my thoughts on Sunday night’s “True Blood.” Why so late, you ask? Well, the long weekend got a little wonky on me. Because Sunday night felt like Saturday, I forgot to watch it and next thing I knew it was Monday and I was behind on “Bachelor Pad.” But, last night, I finally caught up with Sookie, Eric and the crew. And overall, I felt a little … let down.
After the jump, the good, the bad, and the WTF moments of this week’s episode. I can’t believe that this Sunday brings the finale. It really feels like this should only be the halfway mark. Keep reading »
Is no one on “Bachelor Pad” even the slightest bit authentic? I am feeling a bit naive at the moment for buying the sob story presented by Ella Nolan over the course of the show. Ever since the beginning of “Bachelor Pad,” we have been hearing her say why she ABSOLUTELY NEEDS to win the $250K grand prize so that she can give her 9-year-old son the best life possible. “I am a single mother … and I am struggling,” she said last episode, before bursting into tears because safety roses were given to Vienna and Kasey over her and Kirk. This, on top of her tragic childhood—her stepfather shot her mother on the street at point blank range in front of her—made her exceptionally sympathetic.
Which is why I was shocked to read this morning that Ella has pulled a half Heidi Montag. Yes, Ella has gone and gotten herself five plastic surgery procedures and has told the tale, and given photos, to Life & Style, as if this were something to be proud of. Keep reading »
In 1968, French singer Serge Gainsbourg recorded his classic “Bonnie & Clyde” along with Brigitte Bardot. And now Serge’s son, Lulu Gainsbourg, has re-recorded the classic and found himself a new famous, hot blonde to sing the female parts with—Scarlett Johansson. The song will appear on an upcoming tribute album to Lulu’s father. I’m actually not the biggest fan of ScoJo’s voice, but I do like that they decided to make the song bilingual here. But if this isn’t meant to be a Moet & Chandon commercial, the company owes these two a lot of money. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Wild Flag is an all-female supergroup of sorts, featuring Janet Weiss and Carrie Brownstein from Sleater Kinney, Rebecca Cole from The Minders, and Mary Timony from Helium. “Romance,” the first single off their self-titled debut release, features the band members taking a rather unorthodox coffee break from their dull office jobs.

Let’s face it: keeping up with pop culture is difficult. With more than 1000 channels worth of TV shows, not to mention a new flood of movies and music every week, it’s practically a full-time job to keep up with everything. Luckily, it is my full-time job. So after the jump, your cheat sheet to the TV shows you need to watch, the albums you need to hear, the movies you need to see, and much, much more this week.
