Vintage Quote of the Day — Dave Grohl on Kurt Cobain’s Death

Written by , Posted in General

“My soul went dead to music. It’s like a defense mechanism. When music touches a place in you that’s so deep that it can cause pain, you build walls around it and shut yourself off. In 1994 music represented everything to me. My relationships with people. My state of mind. My well-being. So when something like Kurt dying happens, the music reminds you of everything, and you’ve just gotta turn it off. It was just too… overwhelming. But then what happens is, music becomes healing. Still, to this day, one of the reasons why I do what I’m doing is because of all of that.” Dave Grohl, also known as “the-love-of-my-life“, discussing how he felt after Kurt Cobain died.

Joe Scarborough Sings? — HUH?

Written by , Posted in General

I realize I might receive a significant amount of backlash for making fun of Joe Scarborough, given the content of his song — but someone’s gotta do the dirty work — and it’s going to be The Dishmaster. Besides, isn’t it cheating to debut your singing voice amidst such emotional content? Actually — no words are really needed. Just watch the video below.

Bachelor Pad Finale Airs — Will Holly Durst Rot in Hell?

Written by , Posted in General

I’ve fortunately or unfortunately been in some very long term relationships throughout my life. And though I don’t look back on all of those relationships with the greatest memories, I certainly would not spend that much time with someone only to publicly sh*t on them at a later date. If the person was good enough to spend years of your life with, then show them some respect — whether you are still together or not. You might wonder what’s prompting my preaching parade. Here goes.

On tonight’s episode of ‘Bachelor Pad,’ Holly Durst announced her engagement to Blake Julian via a poorly acted, awkward scene on video. Her former fiance, Michael Stagliano, apparently had no idea until entering the stage that she got engaged to another man. He was visibly upset, and he asked why he wasn’t told prior to the show. Blake Julian gave a bad answer, and Holly Durst was silent. Unless Michael was in a ditch somewhere dying, there is no excuse for this deplorable behavior. And by the way — isn’t Holly Durst the same girl that called Jesse Csincsak a fame whore? Didn’t she say that cameras and attention made her uncomfortable? She sure has come a long way.

I’d like to say in closing that Holly and Blake deserve each other. And if Michael Stagliano is reading this — you deserve better — much better.

UPDATE: It’s been brought to my attention via Reality Steve, that Blake Julian was offered a $25,000 Neil Lane ring if he proposed to Holly Durst prior to the ‘Bachelor Pad’ finale. Reality Steve theorizes that Julian would not have proposed to Durst so quickly if not for the offer, and given People Magazine’s recent story/advertisement on Holly’s Neil Lane ring, I tend to believe Reality Steve.

UPDATE #2: The wounded Michael Stagliano defended Holly Durst and blamed the ‘Bachelor Pad’ producers for the on-air announcement of Holly’s engagement, calling it, “the worst thing they could have done for ratings.” First, everyone knows ‘The Bachelor’ producers are blood sucking maggots, and if Michael hasn’t learned his lesson by now then he never will. Second, even if it’s true that both Holly and Blake tried to contact Michael and could not reach him, that still does not excuse showing the proposal on air, which effectively rubs it in Michael’s face, whether he knew of it before or not. It’s gross.

Kate Plus 8 Cancelled — So Should Reality Show Children

Written by , Posted in General

With the end of the very controversial ‘Kate Plus 8′, it might be time to address the legal elephant in the room. Is it immoral to put young children on television? In short, The Dishmaster says yes.

The law currently dictates the amount of hours children can spend as working actors on television. Remember the Olsen twins? The reason there were two of them is because each one was only legally allowed to work on the set for a minimal amount of time, and when there’s two children — it’s double the hours. You might be wondering why the Gosselin children don’t adhere to the same rules as the Olsen twins. The answer lies in the reality television loophole.

Because reality television is not considered a “job”, the children in reality television are not subject to the same labor laws as the children in scripted television. The law views it as a camera recording their life, rather than the child performing a service for money. Translation? — it’s a ridiculous distinction, and it needs to end — starting with the Gosselin children.

X Factor Reveals Extended Promo — Simon Returns

Written by , Posted in General

A new promo for X Factor was just released — and the show looks good. Though Simon Cowell insists that the format is completely different than American Idol, the truth is that wherever Simon Cowell goes — ratings will follow — format or not. In fact, I think it’s fair to say that the real “X Factor” is Simon Cowell and not some random contestant that will win five million dollars in the end. That man sure is a genius, though. He’s going to pocket hundreds of millions as the creator of a show he ripped off from Simon Fuller.

Madonna Apologizes — Still Hates Hydrangeas?

Written by , Posted in General

All public relations debacles can be solved with a sense of humor — and no one can execute this better than Madonna. In an effort to assuage the public outcry over her aversion to hydrangeas, Madonna made a silent film. Though I initially thought she’d take the easy way out and issue a standard apology in the video below, I was pleasantly surprised at the ending. Watch below.

Mel Gibson to Make Judah Maccabee Movie — HUH?!

Written by , Posted in General

When I first heard that Mel Gibson was making a movie about Judah Maccabee, I thought, “that can’t be the same Judah Maccabbee I’m thinking of, right? Perhaps there has been some kind of misunderstanding, and he’s actually making another movie about Jesus?” As it turns out, Gibson is making a movie about THE Judah Maccabbee, the Jewish religious hero that led the revolt against the Seleucid Empire. Isn’t there an easier way to prove that you’re not a bigot? Can’t the guy do an honest interview for once, where he actually discusses that his father is a holocaust denier? And during this same interview, maybe he could also explain that he is neither a wife-beater nor a racist? Actually — he’s doomed. He should just hang it up.

Quote of the Day — Jeffrey Katzenberg

Written by , Posted in General

“For sure the bloom is off the rose for a moment in time, driven by a singular and unique characteristic that only exists in Hollywood, greed. And, you know, so I think there were, unfortunately, a number of people who thought that they could capitalize on what was a great, genuine excitement by movie goers for a new premium experience, and thought they could just deliver a kind of low-end crappy version of it, and people wouldn’t care, or wouldn’t know the difference. And anything — you know, nothing could have been further from the truth.” Jeffrey Katzenberg on Hollywood’s obsession with 3D.

Erica Rose Hits on Blake Julian — Bachelor Pad

Written by , Posted in General

Being the prude that I am, I really respect a girl that can put her whore status in full gear. In fact, I like to live vicariously through the promiscuity of others. So you can imagine how much I enjoyed the hilarious scene from ABC’s ‘Bachelor Pad,’ which involved Erica Rose’s persistent attempt to get Blake Julian to sleep with her. The girl sure knows what she wants, and unfortunately for her, Blake does too. Watch below.
