I predict more “Arrested Development” humor in your future. Especially if you receive a reading with this prophetic Tarot deck. See what fate has in store for you according to the Bluths. Just keep your fingers crossed that you don’t pull the death card. We all know how that worked out for Buster. [Buzzfeed]

“Just because the show was for kids, I would never write down. I would write the kind of deep, rich story that I would like to watch – just trusting it would communicate to the viewers, and it did. The characters were rich, and deep, and had a lot of life to them, a lot of threads… It was like a big, grand soap opera for kids. Also, I’ve found that the basic sense of someone who has two identities… That resonated with a lot of the viewers. There was just something about that fundamental essence of figuring out who you are, and being torn between two identities – particularly, I would have to say for a lot of gay viewers. I think it struck a very, very strong note for a lot of young gay people who were struggling with their own identity at the time.”

Christy Marx, the creator of “Jem and the Holograms,” talks about the lasting power of the show. I totally missed the deeper level of Jem at the time. I mean, I was in the single digits. I loved Jem because I was already performing at the time. I related to the idea of being able to take on a different identity on stage. Also, her clothes were amazing. [MTV]

The Final Countdown To “Arrested Development” The Movie

Why We Need It
Reasons for the return of "Arrested Development." Read More »

The final countdown to the “Arrested Development” film (and television season) is here! After five years sans Bluth, it’s good to know that my time spent practicing the chicken dance and asking strangers to “babysit me” wasn’t all for naught.  We only have to wait one more year before the filming begins. In the meantime, we can sink our teeth into an array of “Arrested Development” inspired ephemera like these imagined movie posters. I especially like the use of Gob in shadow. Very mysterious. If I had any artistic ability whatsoever, I would make one myself. I think it would be a mashup of Lucille Austero and Alfred Hitchcock’s “Vertigo.” [Buzzfeed]

“My Strange Addiction” Presents A Pillow Addict

 

This week on “My Strange Addiction,” we met 33-year-old Tamara and her pillow Boo. This pair has history. They’ve been together since 1982, when she found him at an antique shop, but their connection deepened when she leaned on Boo (literally) as a coping mechanism after being molested. Even though Boo has never been washed, Tamara insists he’s not stinky. But she doesn’t really care what anyone thinks of Boo. Not the president … or her boyfriend. Uh, she has a boyfriend? And I’m single? I’m sorry, let me not make light of her problem. Please note: this is an example of the importance of receiving therapy after a trauma. [Jezebel] Keep reading »

Smell-O-Vision, Coming Soon

Smell-o-vision sounds like something that could only happen in the year 2030, but it could actually be a reality … pretty soon. Samsung has commissioned researched at UCSD to make a device that attaches to your television and produces scents. The device has a 100×100 matrix of wires that burn in different patterns to create specific smells. They recently tested the technology on perfumes and found it was pretty accurate. The question is: do you want to smell what’s onscreen? I mean, would smelling the burnt rubber really bring watching a car chase to another level? As Gizmodo points out, this would inevitably be used by advertisers to make you crave, oh, just about anything. Awesome or scary? [Gizmodo] Keep reading »

6 Concepts For Pippa Middleton’s New TV Show

Pippa Middleton’s backside is already famous. If The Enquirer’s sources are accurate, we may be seeing a whole lot more of P-Middy from the front. Word on the ‘bloid circuit is that Oprah Winfrey is pursuing Pippa to become daytime royalty at OWN. Yes, you read that correctly, Pippa Middleton may get her OWN talk show. After the jump, some concepts for Pippa’s talk show, if it’s really happening, that is. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

10 Things We Hope Will Happen On The Final Episodes Of “Oprah”

I cannot believe that “The Oprah Show” is coming to an end next week. Seriously, I’ve been watching since I was, like, eight and I always thought I’d make it onto her couch. I guess it’s time to let that dream go. Sigh. After 25 seasons, the Big O is filming her final three episodes. Insiders say the final shows will be over-the-top, star-studded extravaganzas. Like we would expect anything less. Celebs like Madonna, Maria Shriver, Beyonce, Barack Obama, Tom Cruise, and Katie Holmes are set to appear. God only knows kind of tomfoolery will go down.

What Will You Bid On At The “Friday Night Lights” Auction?

It’s the final season of “Friday Night Lights.” Huge teardrop. If you would like an expensive reminder of your time with Coach, Riggins, Lyla, and the gang, check out NBC’s “Friday Night Lights” auction. The prop and costume closets have been raided for your pleasure. Bid on such items as Smash’s jersey ($157.50), Coach Taylor’s East Dillon Lions jacket ($405 — pictured above), Lyla Garrity’s shirt ($45), Tim Riggins’ hood ($430) and more. All proceeds will go toward funding sports programs for underprivileged youth. What a lovely idea. But if they really wanted to raise some money, they’d be auctioning off a vial of Riggins’ sperm. Boo-yah! [NBC Universal Auctions via Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

And My Favorite “Celebrity Apprentice” Cast Member Is …

Lil Jon is creative, Meatloaf is a dynamo, and Jon Rich has the ethical constitution of an ox. Much respect, but none of them is my favorite cast member of “Celebrity Apprentice” this season. The person I am most excited to see each Sunday is Jack Jason, the hands and voice of Marlee Matlin. I like Marlee too, but it’s hard to tell where the actress begins and her long-time interpreter ends. A couple of weeks ago, Jack shed tears as Marlee won the challenge that earned her charity $1 million. Awww. And this week, he had the decency to refuse to translate her dirty language. What a gentleman. In a situation that breeds pure insanity, Jack is like the eye of the hurricane, the innocent bystander. Side note: I wonder how he interpreted the things Gary Busey said before he was fired. I can hardly understand them myself. If anyone “got” Gary’s story about the kite, please explain. Anyhow, a big thumbs up to Jack Jason, the international sign for “keep up the good work.” [Dlisted] Keep reading »

This Girl Can’t Shut Her Mouth


“Bizarre ER” is my new favorite television show that doesn’t air here. The same people that brought you the guy with the tiny hat superglued to his head, share the tale of the girl who can’t shut her mouth. Poor Holly Thompson, she’s not in shock, she just yawned too hard during Government class and it stayed that way. Sometimes I feel like this girl. At least my mouth physically closes, it just has a lot to say and sometimes I can’t make it stop at the most inappropriate moments. I believe that’s called “foot in mouth” syndrome. I bet Holly could fit a foot in her gaping maw, or 26 wooden sticks, or … something else. Anything to exhaust her jaw muscles back to health. [Dlisted] Keep reading »
