emmy observations

I liked the personal tributes but not immediately after I recovered from the previous one. I’m emotionally exhausted from the ups and downs.

I had to remind myself that Paul and Ringo are actually still alive. Carrie singing was pointless.

More Bob Newhart.

Less gum.

I am team Kerry Washington. Claire Danes just… Kills me.

It just occurred to me that the theme had to be history of television. That was poorly executed.

Tooooooooo many dance numbers.

Jim Parsons over Jason Bateman, Alec Baldwin, Don Cheadle and LeBlanc? REALLY!?

I think Matt Damon should have won.

Thank you Stephen Colbert. My new goal in life is to be described as “cruel and sexy.” (This is no joke).

Kevin Spacey. ‘Nuf said

Producers of the Emmys, please note the following, these are important:
The middle of the show random song was fun and a great time for celebs to take a mass, untelevised smoke break but don’t do an opening skit, a random dance number and then an interpretive dance/reality show/nominee challenge for presenting Best Choreography. Pick one.

Side note, to help you decide on the above - can we PUH-LEEEZ have the guest actor awards aired instead of Best Choreography? Seriously.

If your theme is television history from 50 years ago - maybe do a montage. I realize that the top 3 televised events were JFK’s assasination, the March on Washington and the inception of Beatlemania but find the joy. I think that’s what the Beatlemania thing was all about but then you have Carrie Underwood perform, “Yesterday.” Who is running this show? TV is about escaping the same reality you’re informing us about. 

Loved the Ryan Seacrest dig. And thank you for not airing him.

Let Will Farrell present Best Comedy in shorts but not Best Drama. Bad call.

More with the kid with the woobie.

Couldn’t you have found a better pic of Eileen Brennan. I was a little frightened.

Emmy’s - you were like life in a lot of ways. So maybe you were trying to make some gigantic, existential statement about how unpredictable (some of the winners) life is and how you have to roll with all of the ups and the downs (eulogies and such) but…I don’t really think you were trying to be a subconscious commentary on humanity.

In the end, I still love you but this was like food poisoning during a hot date.

One should not be as excited for finding the Icy Hot as I am right now.

holy guacamole

Remember when you were a kid and you’d lick the spoons and the bowls after you made cake batter? I still do that. But with guacamole.

Invention

I would like to invent some kind of internet filter (are you listening #Google) that you could update at will that would essentially block all unwanted topics from any of your internet use. For example, I would block all things Miley Cyrus, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, all reality TV personalities (and I use that term loosely but refuse to call them “stars” or “celebs”). Then when I go to various pages like www.usmagazine.com or even www.msn.com - I would see absolutely zero “news” about them. It would be like they really did not exist in my world. 

If only…

Stop it, Hugh Jackman. Ease up buddy. I am genuinely concerned that your veins are actually trying to escape your body.

d-bag of...all-time? →

Chris Brown tattooed the face of a beaten woman onto his neck. This may be the biggest douchebag move like…ever.

Badminton Scandal Rocks London →

Apparently, badminton is the new badass sport.

Eight female player were DQ’d because they were intentionally not giving their all when  playing with the rackets and shuttlecocks. (Yes, I just wanted to throw that word out there but couldn’t find a way to make it funny). It seems China, South Korea and Indonesia were tossing their matches in order to have a more desirable opponent in a knockout round.

Gail Emms, a Beijing silver medalist said the matches were embarrassing to watch. Which comes as no surprise to anyone.

confession of the day

Nothing like realizing you had your shirt on backwards all day.
