Julia Child is a rockstar.

I was watching PBS yesterday and they had a special on Julia Child. The special featured her “Omelette” episode from The French Chef series. It was amazing how she could create an omelette in 20 seconds flat. I want to try it but I know it would still come out a sad, gooey little mess.

I am also reading, “My Life in France”, Julia’s memoirs of living in France. It’s a really good book and makes me very hungry.

Why 80’s fashions should die.

Today, Rachael Ray had a segment on Fall fashions. The question was, “Can I wear 80’s fashions which are coming back for Fall?”

I think I speak for everyone when I say, no, no you cannot.

I keep picturing this poor woman being approached all day by people telling her she forgot to take the cardboard out of her shirt.

This look is reminding me of someone, oh who could it be…

Jonathan Coulton needs his own show.

True/Slant asks Jonathan Coulton for his take on the new Fall shows. Good lord there are alot of medical dramas on the list. Why did we need a long, dragged out farewell to ER if it was just going to come back in the form of three new shows?

Just because I love him so, here are two of my favorite JC songs:

I’m a waitress…what the f*** are you?

True-Blood-Dr-Jays

Sooo…thoughts…questions…comments about last night’s True Blood? Overall, it was just ok for me. I’m happy that Maryann and Eggs are gone and that the town is back to it’s usual Springfield-like self. I had hoped to see more of Queen Sophie, although I am sure that she will be a focus of the show next season. Sookie just grated on me, she was pretty useless when she had that whole glowy hand thing going on the last time she faced Maryann. She was a big wimp in this episode, with a whole lot of crying and yelling “Let meeee go Beeel!”

Newsweek has a few questions after last night’s finale.

E!Online has a few notes after watching the show.

Chicago Tribune talks to Nelsan Ellis(Lafayette) about the finale and what’s next for his character.

A new cast member has been added for next season, Tony winner Dennis O’Hare will be the new King of Mississippi.

Nine long months until Season Three gang! No idea where I will get my cheap thrill from now.
