Happy Valentine’s Day Sookie

Bon Temps’ favorite werewolf, Alcide Herveaux, embarrasses himself again in his continuing quest to get some Sookie.

OW! MY *BLEEP*ING JAW!!

You know I love crazy profanity laced tirades. In this clip from Hell’s Kitchen, this cat is so embarrassed and humiliated by the piss poor performance of his brigade, and chastises them so vehemently, passionately and emphatically that he seems to dislocate his jaw from the effort of shouting FUCK! and its variants in rapid fire fashion. That’s some next level “You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry,” Christian Bale shit right there.

I’m pretty sure she’s not a lesbian

Ever since John From Cincinnati premiered, I’ve been getting hits from folks searching for "John From Cincinnati lesbian." I assume they’re looking for information on tomboy surfer Keala Kennelly, who plays tomboy surfer Kai on the show. As far as I know, neither of them (Keala or Kai) are lesbians, but I could be wrong. In any case, if you’re one of those folks intrigued by Keala, check out her profiles at lat34.com and Surfer Magazine, then check out this video of her in action, then come back here to watch the six minute interview with her below (courtesy of HBO).

If I were a lesbian surfer, I’d be Melissa (this week, anyway)

I’m going to talk about the first episode of Curl Girls The Series, so you might want to take 30 seconds and watch this video to get everyone’s names straight; alternatively, you can refer back to the video as you read the article.

If everybody had an ocean

Mr. Pipeline comic art
This art was inspired by a photo at Gerry Lopez Surfboards.

I love surfing. Not that I can. I can’t even swim, but I ever since I was a kid, I have had a deep romantic love of surfing. If you would have asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would have answered, "Gerry Lopez!" Of course, I was the only one in my hometown who gave a shit about surfing. Historically, in fact, most of America doesn’t seem to take it seriously as a sport, considering how often surf competitions are broadcast on network television, which is never. Well, I think I remember seeing it on ABC’s Wide World of Sports once, but that was like, 30 years ago, so maybe I’m remembering it wrong. Surfing may be coming into it’s own in the States, though, if the current crop of surfing related entertainment hitting movie theaters and television screens these days catches on. Here’s my guide to the surf related entertainment out now, and what will be out in the next few months.

The show Desperate Housewives should have been

The Riches
Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver as Wayne and Dahlia Malloy (aka Doug and Shireen Rich) from The Riches.

 

I just got done watching the season finale of The Riches, and I must say that this series has become one of my favorites. If you’re not familiar with it, Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver star as the parents of a family of con artists who, due to a series of unusual circumstances, are forced take over the lives of a wealthy suburban family; but it really is about the cost of the American dream, and not just in dollars and cents.

Eccelston is Who on BBC America

Christopher Eccelston as Doctor Who
"I'm also fantastic on Heroes!"

Just flipped over to BBC America and they’re showing the complete 2005 season of Doctor Who today. If you’re in America, haven’t seen it yet and have cable, check it out if you can. As good as David Tennant is in the role, Christopher Eccelston is the fucking Doctor! Don’t take our word for it, watch the video below and see what some regular folks thought.

Billie Piper
Cheerleaders are so overrated.

Billie Piper along for the ride as the impossibly sexy Rose Tyler, sharp writing by Russell Davies (and others), tight direction by Euros Lyn (and others) and strong support from Noel Clarke and Camille Coduri made this series the new bar to be reached.

UPDATE/CORRECTION: BBC America isn’t showing the complete 2005 series today; they skipped over the episodes “The Unquiet Dead,” “Aliens of London,” and “World War III.”

Charles Nelson Reilly (1931-2007)

Charles Nelson Reilly
"I don't just play _____ on television, I am _____!"

I just saw on the Today show that Charles Nelson Reilly passed away over the weekend from complications related to pneumonia. He was a great comic actor who appeared in tons of films and television shows over the years. Check out the trailer for a movie of his autobiographical stage show The Life of Reilly if you’re not quite sure who he is:

Elisabeth Hasselbeck
"I can't help it if my breasts are beautiful!"

Everybody is talking about this clip from The View in which Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Rosie O’Donnell get into a heated argument about the Iraq War. As far as I’m concerned, Elisabeth Hasselbeck will never win any argument about anything as long as she keeps raiding General Zod‘s wardrobe; her breasts are too distracting. I couldn’t focus on anything she was saying for more than a second, so it kinded of sounded like she was ranting about a football game she had on her TiVo. I didn’t get it. I have the same problem with the movie Short Cuts, because apparently the scene where Julianne Moore explains what the hell is going on is the scene I always zone out on because her vagina is hanging out. Click continue reading to see the clip (from The View, not Short Cuts).
