SYTYCD Season 8: Top 8 Performances

In: Dan, TV Shows

Dear Skeletor, why on earth do we still need to have a two-hour performance episode when we’re down to the top eight dancers?! I understand that each performer is dancing with an all star, but seriously, cut out the nonsense filler and give us the content we REALLY want to see – DANCING!

Holy SHIT I forgot LADY GAGA was a guest judge this week! YES! YES! YES!!! I will actually be listening to the commentary this week, just to see what she has to say about the different dancers and routines. That is, unless it ends up being incoherent nonsense and then I’ll just start fast-forwarding again! Did you see Gaga’s outfit?! It was AMAZEBALLS to the MAX! OH MY GOD I LOVE HER SO MUCH!! Mary Murphy, Skeletor and the second guest judge joined her for the week, the pumpkin, Rob Marshall. Did you see his spray tan?! Tonight is going to be amazing.

When danger comes, who you gonna call? Apparently, it’s Alex Trebek. The Jeopardy host arrived on crutches to the National Geographic World Championship at Google’s California headquarters. Why was that? Because Alex had spent the day prior, chasing a burglar and hurt himself in the process. Alex opened the first round of competition by explaining his new injury.

“What is, it happened at 2:30 a.m., chasing a burglar down the hallway of my San Francisco hotel my Achilles tendon ruptured and I then fell on carpet, bruising the other leg in process. Surgery on Friday.”

Chasing a burglar down a hotel hallway, at 2:30 in the morning. Wow. To be a fly on the wall in Alex Trebek’s room during that situation. Can you imagine be woken up to someone sifting through your things in the wee hours? So who was the culprit?

Summer is always the hottest season in Vancouver, and it’s not because of the weather either. The city hosts one of the best Pride Festivals out there. This particular summer, Vancouver will be extra scorching hot because the 2011 North American Outgames are being held here as well. And can you believe it, at the same time. My mind is going insane on how unforgettable this time will be in Vancity.

Check Out This 90’s Dance Acapella Medley Mix

In: Music, Patrick, Videos

Recently, I came across this Danish singing group called “Local Vocal” that put together this fantastic 90’s acapella medley mix. It brings back so many memories! One of the songs they sing, “All That She Wants,” by Ace of Base stood out for me because they’re going to be performing in at Vancouver Pride this weekend. Can’t wait!

The video is done kind of like the Brady Bunch intro, where everyone’s got their head in their own box. Quite enjoyable and I’m sure it will take you back! The songs include: Rhythm of the Night, What is Love, I’m A Scatman, I Don’t Need Your Love, I Like To Move It, Be My Lover, No Limit, and Sing Hallelujah.

Okay, so Rachel is HOH and at first look, it appears all hell may just break loose in this episode with all of the scheming going on coupled with the tension going on within the veteran alliance. Dominic & Adam are up on the block, but whoever wins the POV in this episode could change the nominations. It could be a game changer.

Before I get into the main things that happened in the episode, I want to say that I’m starting to think that Porsche is going to come out of nowhere later in the game and become a huge threat. She’s doing a great job at laying low and I think she’ll have the gameplay to outwit some of the others.

Check Out The First Trailer For “Battleship”

In: Donovan, Movies

You just sank my battleship!” Man, I loved playing this game as a kid. When I first heard the classic board game was being adapted for the big screen, I was a little perplexed. Battleship was fun and all, but how were they going to create a full-length film based on a game where you sank your opponent’s fleet of ships. Simple, add aliens. DUH.

The newly-released trailer for “Battleship” looks like “Transformers” meets “Independence Day“. Sound confused? Watch the trailer and you’ll see. Even if the storyline sucks balls, at least we have a bit of eye candy to look at in the form of “True Blood’s” Alexander Skarsgard and “Friday Night Lights” hottie Taylor Kitsch. Despite looking absolutely nothing alike, the two play brothers. Yummy. The film also marks the acting debut of Rihanna. I watched the trailer a couple of times, but couldn’t see her. Maybe she takes form as that huge alien or her acting is that wooden. LOL. Liam Neeson, Brooklyn Decker and Josh Pence round out the cast. Here’s the movie’s plot courtesy of Wikipedia.

A story of an international Navy fleet engaged in a very dynamic and intense battle against an alien race known as “The Regents”. The aliens come to planet Earth, on a mission to build a power source in the ocean. Upon their visit, they come in contact with a navy fleet. The film is also purported to show both sides of the story, from the aliens’ perspective, as well as the humans.

This just made my hump day that much better. The ladies of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” are back for another season of delicious catfights and over-the-top fabulousness. Let’s just hope the season isn’t a letdown like the latest season of NYC. Man, those Housewives aren’t really the same without Bethenny Frankel. Judging by the trailer, I don’t think there will be a shortage of drama, breakdowns and one-liners on RHOBH’s second season. Already, Kim Richards “you’re a slut pig” could rival Teresa Guidice’s (RHONJ) “prostitution whore“.

Thankfully, Adrienne Maloof, Lisa Vanderpump, Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Taylor Armstrong and Camille Grammer are all back. Their chemistry SLASH tension was undeniable and made for great television. Not one to rest on their laurels, Bravo is injecting some new blood in the mix this season. Technically, they’re not official housewives, but rather “Friends of the Housewives“. LOL. I wonder who’ll be the Kim G. of the newbies. My money is Brandi Glanville.

Who’d You Rather: Rosenbaum VS Flajnik

In: Totally GAY!, TV Shows, Tyrell

The Bachelorette is about to come to a dramatic close with Ashley having to choose between two men: J.P. Rosenbaum or Ben Flajnik. Both men couldn’t be more opposite from each other but the question still remains… who will Ashley give the final rose to AND will they propose to her in the beautiful scenery of Fiji? Let me share my thoughts on each of the men.

J.P. Rosenbaum has always been an early favorite of mine. I mean look at him, what’s not to love? He’s absolutely adorable. He has one of those winning smiles that makes you swoon and weak in the knees. When he is with Ashley, I see the more playful and fun side in her. The only thing that annoys me about J.P. is that he can kind of be a cry baby sometime, if not all the time. However, I really hope that she picks him in the end. I think they could be the next Trista & Ryan or Ali & Roberto.

To be perfectly honest, I kept getting Ben Flajnik and his friend Constantine mixed up every single episode. They look EXACTLY THE SAME. I was even convinced that in some sort of conspiracy, they were twins. Now that Constantine has left, it’s easier for me to look at Ben on his own without confusing him with another man. While J.P. bring out her playful side, Ben brings out Ashley’s serious and calming side, which can be great but I think can live a little bit more with J.P.

So, if you were in Ashley’s shoes, who’d you rather? Need more help on deciding?
