Media News!

Be still, my heart. John Oates’ moustache is getting a television show – according to today’s NY Post. The facial hair of the brunette half of 80s yacht-rockers Hall & Oates will be the basis of a new cartoon. And get this: it’s being called “J-Stache”. I kid you not!

The animated series is currently being shopped around to the likes of Comedy Central and Cartoon Network. The idea came from independent music publisher Primary Wave – who are the controversial people behind that creepy Kurt Cobain/Converse campaign. But ya know what? John Oates is still alive and well and perfectly aware that his moustache is in high demand so I don’t really give a shit if people have a problem with Primary Wave. I was never a Nirvana fan anyway.

Oh Oates. The video for She’s Gone never fails to amaze me. I would be honored to see your `stache – albeit animated – on a weekly basis.

Next up, in Rupert Murdoch-owns-the-world news, MySpace Music – in yet another attempt to prove to Facebook that they are the reigning social networking site – has re-launched their platform to allow endless streaming capabilities from all the major music labels. Guess what, MySpace? A music-oriented social network already exists. It’s called Last.FM and I’m pretty sure they want to meet you on the playground after school for a smack down. Oh and, YOU WILL NEVER BE FACEBOOK. Just accept it already. Your time has come and gone. The younger, more popular girl has stolen your man. And by “man” I mean the entire 14-34 year-old demographic. You’re a year and a half away from being Friendster. I don’t care how many applications and partnerships you obtain. You know who cares about those things? The people who are JUST NOW signing up for MySpace. And let’s get real, those people are square. Any logical person knows that if they haven’t signed up by now, their time has passed. Get over it.


hood snacks

my friend's post about "inner city" foods kind of made me laugh. it also explains why she handed me a bag of chips the other day and asked me to take a picture with my camera phone and send it to her. it wasn't until just now that i saw the picture on her blog and realized what a messy shit storm my desk is. but at least the chip bag looks nice.

FYI - i love me some Orange Drink. don't hate.

sexy politicians

i found this on the table in the receptionists' area of the office. you know, the table that's surrounded by couches where people nervously sit before interviews. yeah, that table.


Gay Clay

Clay Aiken pulled a Lance Bass by shocking NO ONE with a "coming out" cover on People Magazine.

i hate that yet another People Magazine cover has been wasted on this shit. this is not news!! if George Clooney or Chuck Norris comes out of the closet, i want to know about it. but slapping the Gayken on the cover of a magazine with "yes, I'm gay" is as pointless as putting Jennifer Aniston on a cover with "yes, I'm still bitter".

best part of the Emmy's

so the first half of the Emmy's (the part before i fell asleep) made me entirely uncomfortable. from that horrible opening with Heidi Klum and company, to the awkward Josh Groban and his puppy dog eyes performance to the edge of my seat anticipation of thinking Jeremy Piven would re-injure himself with that Emmy statue...ugh. what a disaster.

but alas, there was one - JUST ONE - funny moment for me to remember as i nodded off into dreamland and that was Ricky Gervais vs. Steve Carrell. The Office vs. The Office 2.0

Steve, old buddy old pal, how you kept a straight face is beyond me. especially with your cohorts hysterically laughing around you (i'm looking at you John Stewart and Steven Colbert).

"i sat through Evan Almighty; give me my Emmy". point, Gervais

ahhhh and that last attempt to grab the Emmy back from Ricky at the end...hilarity!

annnnnnd CONGRATS to MAD MEN for winning Best Drama!!

(Jon Hamm - you were ROBBED for best actor but at least the robber was a fellow AMC-er)

i need to get my Joan Holloway halloween costume in check!

good god woman, where's the Emmy for Most Fantastic Rack?
