Real Grown-Ups watch the news in the morning. They eat their bran cereal and take their multivitamins and shake their heads gravely as blandly attractive idiots on TV tell them with a smile that the world is a violent horrible mess, but the weather at the beach will be great this weekend! (the UV Index will be high in the Valley, though, so parents, keep you kids inside! Protect them from the dangers of sunlight, peanuts, germs and human contact, and make sure they grow up to be safe, healthy sociopaths. I shouldn’t single out parents, though. We’re all responsible for the next generation; it takes a village to alienate a school shooter.)...

Obligatory Facebook Home Post [What The Tech?!]

I wasn’t going to make this post because I couldn’t quite put into words how I felt about Facebook Home. I kept trying to come up with analogies that would help relay my true feelings about it and because of this, I kept putting it off. Then, last weekend my dog lost his toe in a tragic ‘pawing at the wicker basket’ accident.

HEMLOCK GROVE [Remote Control Freak]

The Logline reads thus: “A teenage girl is brutally murdered, sparking a hunt for her killer. But in a town where everyone hides a secret, will they find the monster among them?” TWIN PEAKS, you say? That would be an excellent guess. The cult classic probably spawned later and lesser versions of the same premise of a murdered girl in a town full of inane characters and crazy secrets. But nobody’s ever going to rival the originality–nay genius–of David Lynch on television. (Even if he did decide to trash the end of the series with a big “F You” to ABC for cancelling him.) Alright, THE KILLING,then? Actually this show was so...

April 26-28, 2013 [Procrastinate on This!]

Well, your first nominee for the worst day of the  year has to happen sometime, and that time was this past Tuesday for me. It started out with me getting into a costly early morning, insurance-raising car accident with an egg truck (yes, seriously, I managed to get hit by a truck carrying eggs), and ended with my MIL getting taken to the hospital for what turned out to be congestive heart failure.

Yes, I understand this is how I choose to represent my television viewing interests for the first time. And no, I promise it’s not all embarrassing. First of all, it was Wife Swap – Biggest Loser Edition. A fitness crazed, Jillian Michael’s wannabe wife swapped with an obese Italian wife who’s entirely family boasts a cumulative weight of around 1800 pounds – You can only imagine how that inspired ABC’s ratings for the night.
