Coming Soon Logo

So…I’ve been away…I’ve been busy…I’ve been slacking…I…have NO EXCUSES. But I’ll back everyone! (And that’s not a threat) I’m happy to announce that….

More Posts….are coming!!

(I imagine that being said like “Winter…is coming” from Game of Thrones so I’ll just wait here while you repeat that line again only in a raspy, ominous-sounding deep voice.)

Stay Tuned!

 

In the meantime, enjoy this video of this monkey laughing at a magic trick.

Gilmore Girls will always be one of my favorite shows, quite even possibly my favorite ever. It’s the show I turn on when there’s nothing else on TV. It’s the show I was on ABC Family when it plays every day in syndication. It’s the show I remember, quote, and think of when other shows remind me of it. Gilmore Girls is like a dear friend, always there for you.

Well, in case you haven’t heard, Gilmore Girls is on Netflix. Starting today, October 1st. And, I’m pretty sure this is the best thing EVER. This means on those days I’m not working, I no longer have to pop in DVD after DVD, I can just turn on Netflix and bounce around to my favorite episodes. While, of course, still watching re-runs on ABC Family. I can go linear and NON-Linear.

 

So I ask you?...Is It Weird…how obessed I am with Gilmore Girls?

 

 

Side Note:  What does this post say about me? That…

A) I’m Awesome

B) I’m very single and possibly an animal hoarder.

C) I’m super cool (but you’re only saying that because you are afraid I’ll cyber stalk you, hunt you down, and possibly kill you.)

D) I just really love Gilmore Girls.

 

 

 

Is it weird, that I’m…let’s say older than the average MTV viewer and I am still totally obsessed with MTV’s The Challenge. I mean I was watching it when it was still called Road Rules. Then it changed to Real World/Road Rules as they morphed the two shows together. And finally it’s The Challenge. Now even though I’ve (mostly) stopped watching Real World, and The Challenge has become oversaturated with new kids (or rookies) that I don’t know…is it weird that I still love it? I hate watching stupid juvenile TV drama, but when that drama stems off of incredible, death defying, stunts/challenges I can’t stop watching it’s like a train wreck. Now this season is a bit of a letdown as most of my favorites (Emily, Sarah, Evan, Evelyn, crazy Paula, Kenny, Adam, Darrell, and Jenn) are gone and replaced by people who don’t even seem to like challenges or have any athleticism at all…But I can’t stop (won’t stop) watching. It’s good you guys.

 

I mean where else can you see one grown man wear another grown man like a backpack?

 
So. Good.

 

 

 

 

I watch a lot of TV. I admit that. And while I own a lot of DVD’s I find myself guilty of watching movies live on TV. The other day E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial was on and I had to watch it from top to finish. Even though I’ve seen it a million times, even though I OWN it. I had to watch it right there on TV, commercials and all. This made me start to think:  Is It Weird…that there are some movies out there I HAVE to watch every time they are on TV, even when I own the DVD, that’s most likely still in its shrink-wrap packaging?

 

The Movies I HAVE to WATCH

 

Pitch-PerfectPitch Perfect
A couple months ago HBO played Pitch Perfect every day, and every time I saw that it was on, I watched it. I really did. No matter where it was in the show. I watch it until the end, I really do. I’m such a sucker for some sarcastic Anna Kendrick, and that damn Cups song.

 

 

sugar and spiceSugar & Spice
This show comes on maybe once or twice a year, but whenever it does, I watch it. Four years ago, I finally bought it. And since then it’s remained in its packaging. But when I see that it’s playing on TV, I have to watch it. Come on, bank robbing cheerleaders who use cheerleading stunts to commit crimes? So good. AND James Marsden? Yes, please.

 

 

The-SandlotThe Sandlot
“You’re killing me, Smalls!” This show brings back memories, and it will always be one of my favorites no matter how old I get. My kids will watch this movie and fall in love with it. ABC Family has those summer weeks where they show Sandlot practically every day. And I watch it. Every. Single. Time. I will watch this show for-EV-er, for-EV-er…even if I can recite it line for line.

 

 

shawshank3The Shawshank Redemption
This is my favorite movie of all time and TNT loves to play it. Every ‘time I watch it I somehow miss the beginning, but let’s face it, the movie doesn’t get good until Andy and Red meet. This movie is a classic and in my opinion one of the best, and that is why it remains in its pristine packaging while I watch it every time it plays on TV.

 

 

Sweet-Home-AlabamaSweet Home Alabama
This is my second favorite romantic comedy, only behind While You Were Sleeping, which let’s be honest, is the best. I loved the fact that in this love triangle there was no bad guy, just a guy that wasn’t right for her. I hate those rom-com’s when the first guy she’s with is obviously the wrong guy, it’s like well, why is she with him then? I also love Reese Witherspoon, this is a good Saturday afternoon movie…or you know, whenever it’s on TV. Sometimes all it takes is 1 minute and I’m sucked in.

 

 

Jurassic-ParkJurassic Park
Admit it, this is one of your favorite movies too. And if not, you’re crazy. Favorite scene ever? When Lex is eating jello and notices the velociraptors behind her grandfather. That jello jiggling on the spoon is a classic visual. When this movie plays sometimes I just watch it to see my favorite parts. Dr. Grant listening to the triceratops breathing, the goat, the first time the gang sees the dinosaurs…such a great movie. (Tangent: How does my spell check not know the word velociraptor?)

 

 

prettywomanPretty Woman
Another classic, right? How can anyone resist Julia Roberts in this movie? (notice I said in this movie.) TBS plays this movie waaaay to many times and I watch it waaaay too many times. I recently decided I needed to own the movie, but it’s never actually made it to the DVD player. Favorite can’t miss scene? Here’s a hint, fast forward thought it would be a big mistake. BIG MISTAKE.

 

 

So am I just weird? Or do you have movies you can’t stop watching when they’re on TV?

 

 

Is it weird…for me to say that I am in love with this trailer? I never knew it was possible. But it is. Come on, you have to admit it too. Since the trailer premiered last week, I can’t stop thinking about it. It is nerdy, funny, weird, eccentric, and frakkin’ hilarious. Groot ducking so he’s in frame, the use of “Hooked On A Feeling,” the “What the hell am I watching?” vibe all throughout the trailer and of course this:

guardians-of-the-galaxy-star-lord

 

I love it so much…is that weird?

 

You all know about the sad Keanu meme, and if you don’t. You’re sure missing out. Who knew a man eating his lunch would turn into something so amazing? And then I came across this article. So, Is It Weird…that I really really really want my own Sad Keanu?

Sad Keanu

 

Like I’m absolutely obsessed. He’ll be here soon. Very soon.

 

 

Last night one of my favorite shows How I Met Your Mother aired an episode all about The Mother. I have to say I had a hard time keeping my emotions in check while watching the episode. The Mother actually became a person, a fully realized character that I love completely and I can’t wait to see when Ted finally gets her. While the episode was so well acted (Cristin Milioti is amazing) and so well written (my “review” of the episode coming shortly), listening to Milioti sing “La Vie En Rose” at the end of the episode was so perfect. I’ve always felt like I was Ted, waiting for the right person to come along, knowing he’s out there somewhere. The way she sang that song made me feel happy and somehow sad all at the same time. Like my guy, wherever he is, is this wonderful possibility but yet so far away at the same time. So, Is It Weird…that all I want to do is watch this episode over and over again, and listen to her song over and over again (it’s on iTunes!) while cozy up on the couch in my pajamas?

I’ve never been a big fan of Jonah Hill. In fact, I find him annoying. While he’s supposedly been taking more “dramatic rolls” he still plays that agonizingly annoying, stupid, jerk of a guy character that I’m just SO SICK of. His characters just never seem geniune. However, Is It Weird….that I dislike him a little less because Leonardo DiCaprio and him have such a bromance? (And I love Leo.)

Check out his opening SNL monologue with Leo and that bear hug they give each other at the end…

[Note: I’m starting a new series called “Is It Weird” about weird things I think or observe. Why? Because this blog is some rants of some crazy person. And because I can!]
