The Dishmaster Returns! – Happy New Year!

Written by , Posted in General

Fear not, loyal readers! The Dishmaster is back from vacation and as promised, I received just the right amount of rest and relaxation to rejuvenate my dishing skills. May 2012 be about letting the past go to embrace the future. And when all else fails — have a laugh. Don’t be too concerned about my new found positivity though — I’m still pretty cranky. Hooray for the new year! And if you’re feeling extra creative, please share your favorite vacation pictures with me. Can you beat my iguana?

Happy Holidays — The Dishmaster is On Vacation

Written by , Posted in General

In an effort to restore what’s left of my sanity, I am taking the holidays off from all things gossip and technology. It’s time for some family lovin’ and some adventure seeking in a far off land. I will return in full form after the new year. To all my loyal readers — please take this time to enjoy your holidays, and thank you for your continued support. I couldn’t do this without your positive encouragement. I’ll see you in 2012!

Will Nicole Scherzinger & Steve Jones Leave X Factor? — Fired?

Written by , Posted in General

Most television shows go through major changes after season one, and I predict that X Factor will be no exception. When recently asked about her return, Scherzinger prepped for the potential public relations cleanup, saying it’s more difficult than she expected to publicly reject people. Translation? — She fears she’ll get fired and she’s planting the seeds to make people think she quit. As for Steve Jones, he will likely get the boot as well, given the enormous amount of negative criticism he’s received. Apparently, Jones was only hired as a last minute replacement for Corbin Bleu, because Scherzinger refused to work with him, and the network therefore had to scramble for a new co-host. They chose Jones because of his chemistry with Scherzinger, but when Scherzinger replaced Cheryl Cole as a judge, the reason for Jones’ hiring became moot. The truth is, neither Scherzinger nor Jones will know about their status with the show until “pick-up letters” are sent out for the new season. If no such letter arrives, then they get the axe. Until then, only the network executives know the plan. I suggest firing Scherzinger and Jones, leaving the judging panel at three, and then hiring Brian Dunkleman as the new co-host (okay, that last part is a joke . . . sort of).

Quote of the Day — David Cross Hates the Chipmunks

Written by , Posted in General

“This last film was literally, without question, the most unpleasant experience I’ve ever had in my professional life. It’s safe to say I won’t be working with some of those people ever again. Not the actors. And the director [Mike Mitchell] was great. We got along. There were a couple of people, though…it was just a really awful, unpleasant experience.” Arrested Development star, David Cross, on his recent experience filming Alvin and the Chipmunks: Chip-Wrecked.

Kourtney Kardashian Insults Judaism — Bigoted?

Written by , Posted in General

The latest episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York made my blood boil. In case you’re wondering, The Dishmaster is Jewish. You can therefore imagine my rage when I discovered that most of episode four was dedicated to Scott Disick rediscovering his Judaism, which included many offensive remarks from Kourtney Kardashian, most notably referring to his religion as a “phase” and a “fad” and challenging his dedication by quizzing him on the Old Testament. Did I mention she poked fun at his Yarmulke? I not only blame Kourtney Kardashian for her disgusting remarks, but I also blame E!, given that most reality is scripted, and the producers likely predicted this would garner some kind of comic relief. Needless to say, I didn’t find it funny. Watch the entire video below.

Matt Damon Slams Obama — Ill-Informed & Ridiculous?

Written by , Posted in General

After reading Matt Damon’s scathing review of President Obama in Elle Magazine, I asked my friend James (also known as a genius when it comes to politics . . . or pretty much anything) for a response. He did not disappoint. Because I couldn’t possibly have said it better myself, I’ve chosen to share it with my readers. Enjoy.

Critiques like that are extremely naive. People like Damon severely overestimate the interest of Congressional Republicans in handing Obama any victories at all. For example, a key reason why unemployment rates are so high is that Congress (read: Republicans) wouldn’t vote for a larger stimulus package. As another example, the primary reason why tax policy is so skewed towards the rich is that the GOP (which CONTROLS THE HOUSE) consistently rejects more equitable policies. And so on and so forth. People like Damon sound incredibly stupid when they disregard the existence of the legislative branch. How does Damon think that Obama can pass an expansive progressive agenda if Obama has an obstructive Congress? Is Obama supposed to pass legislation by fiat using executive orders? The answer can’t possibly be “yes,” since excessive executive orders were a key reason that liberals complained about Bush’s “imperial” presidency. In summary, Matt Damon needs to go back to high school and take a civics class.

SNL Makes Fun of Tim Tebow — Out of Line?

Written by , Posted in General

I’m told by my religious friends that atheists are the most judgmental of other people’s choices. They often site comedians and actors as the biggest culprits of such judgment. If that’s true, then Saturday Night Live’s Tim Tebow sketch is a great example. Sure I think it’s ridiculous to believe that God has time to worry about football, but shouldn’t Tim Tebow be allowed to believe what he wants without the ridicule?

Kim Kardashian Responds to Criticism of Haiti Visit — She’s Angry

Written by , Posted in General

Kim Kardashian isn’t happy. Apparently, the tabloids have “tried to tarnish the motive behind [her Haiti] visit and have written completely ridiculous and untrue things.” The primary culprit in question is the National Enquirer, who claimed that she used the trip to “spend a fortune pampering herself.” Though I understand her frustration if the story is in fact false, that still doesn’t change the timing of this visit, or the transparent attempt to restore her image in the press. Most celebrities that do charity work send press releases to blogs to garner positive PR (I know this because I often get the press releases). My guess is that this visit was well-calculated. Having said that, I’m still supportive. Sometimes selfishness can still produce positive results.
