YEAY! My favourite episode of last season made a comeback this season! THE SNATCH GAME! If you remember, last year’s Snatch Game was the hilarious episode where the contestants have to impersonate a celebrities. Last year the standouts were Pandora who did Carol Channing, and the winner Tatianna who did a PERFECT Britney Spears. I was doubled over with laughter last season, so I was hoping they would do it again this season.

After the mini challenge of Shit RuPaul Says, Delta won a phone call home which she graciously gave to Shangela to call her grandma. It was a very sweet moment actually. The queens found out they had to do The Snatch Game with guest judges Aiysha Tyler and Amber Rose. We started to learn about the characters people were going to potray. Alexis chose Alicia Keys, Shangela took Tina Terminator (Tina Turner), Manila did Imelda Marcos (YES!), Carmen did JLo, Yara did Amy Winehouse, Raja did Tyra (Whom he knows personally). Delta took on Cher which was a HUGE risk & Mariah took on Joan Crawford. Those two are like UBER hard to do because everyone does them. When Ru asked Stacy what she was going to do, her initial character was Anna Nicole but Ru wasn’t feelin it. So Stacy spun a little and eventually decided on Monique, which was an inspired choice.

Snooky and the Metronome

In: Patrick, Random Reads, Videos

Okay, so I realize the randomness of posting a video about a cat, but I almost hacked up a hairball when I watched it because it’s that hilarious.

A guy who was practicing his music earlier this year noticed that his cat “Snooky” was intrigued in the metronome he had going. He decided to put it on the ground so the cat could get a closer look. I don’t want to spoil the video for you, but it’s so worth watching. You can even hear the guy filming trying to control his laughter as he watches this fantastic feline funniness.

I love funny animal videos. This is definitely one of the best I’ve seen. Check it out!

SNL Takes Us Behind The Scenes

In: TV Shows, Tyrell

Last night, NBC gave a sneak peek at what really goes on behind-the-scenes of Saturday Night Live in a two hour special. The show covered a variety of spectrums from the process leading up the live show to what happens when things go awry. Many current and past cast members took time to sit down and share their personal experiences with what was referred to many times as comedy bootcamp.

Some of today’s biggest comedy legends got their start on SNL; many weren’t successful on the live variety show but found a large amount of success after the leaving the sound stage. Some cast members caused a lot of controversy like Norm MacDonald, one which Tina Fey referred to in her sit down as a “dangerous cast member” in the sense that you never knew what was going to come out his mouth. He was fired mid-season.

Through all the trials and tribulations that this show has gone through, it still remains the show that people across America tune in to every Saturday night to get their comedy fix. And now with the internet at our fingertips, sketches that reach the height of hilarity go viral the very next morning. What has kept this show running as long as it has and garnered it the most Emmy nominations than any other program?

2011 Oscars: Who Will Win Best Supporting Actress?

In: Donovan, Movies

The 83rd Academy Awards are being handed out in Hollywood this Sunday and what better time to shine the spotlight on the talented thespians earning nominations this year. I decided to start off my Oscar predictions with the five amazing performances battling it out for the Best Supporting Actress award. The field is comprised of three previous multiple nominees and two first-timers. Despite four previous nominations among them, none of them have won the golden statue before. But that’s all about to change come Oscar night.

Up until a couple of weeks ago, this category seemed like a lock. Thankfully for us, and unfortunately for one of them, a badly thought out move in her campaigning, has given us a wide open field. Based on their performances, any of these ladies could take home the statue. Realistically though, based on precursors, only three of them are in heated race to win Oscar glory. Check out my thoughts on who should win and will win below. You’ll also see who I think was severely snubbed in this category as well. Be sure to post your predictions in the comments.

Preview Avril Lavigne’s “Goodbye Lullaby” Album

In: Music, Patrick

Canadian Singer/songwriter, Avril Lavigne is set to release her next album “Goodbye Lullaby” on March 8th. After her divorce with Deryck Whigby was finalized this past November, Lavigne sings her goodbyes to the marriage, as well has her love for her new man, Brody Jenner in the new album. Avril Lavigne says that this album is the “most meaningful and special record I have written”, saying that it is “sincere, honest and close to my heart.”

After previewing the album, I have to say I quite like it. It’s less the “Skater Boy” Avril and the more “Complicated” Avril that we love the most. There are several options for singles from the album and you can bet that some of these songs with lyrics about relationship hardships will be featured on some TV dramas where applicable. There are also three acoustic version of her songs on the album, including one for “What The Hell,” as well as a cover of the classic hit “Bad Repuation“. Check out the album preview below and let me know what you think!

Top 5 Internet Attention Whores

In: Patrick, Random Reads, Videos

These days it doesn’t take much to get a dose of attention on a global scale when a video goes viral…and people have definitely caught on and many people have taken advantage of YouTube as a way to get their 15 minutes of fame. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great way to get yourself out there, but some people really make fools of themselves through this medium.

The Second City Network has taken some time to compile a list of their Top 5 picks for Internet “Attention Whores“, commenting on their selections in between. After watching the video, I couldn’t agree more about their selections. You may recognize some of the videos, one of which is a red-head ranting about how “Gingers Do Have Souls,” but makes this video worth watching is the Second City actors commenting on the videos. Love the people from Second City!

Lately I’ve noticed that so many celebrities seem to be turning 30 this year. In last night’s episode of Kourteney & Kim Take New York, Kim Kardashian did a keg stand for her 30th birthday. She actually turned 30 this past fall on October 21st. Christina Aguilera also turned dirty thirty this past December. I guess I’m more aware of all the stars that are turning 30, because I myself am turning 30 in a little over a week. A lot of the young stars that I grew up with are now going to be entering their 30s with me, meaning we’re all growing up.

People that became famous when they were just kids, like Britney Spears, Beyonce, and even former teen heart throb Jonathan Taylor Thomas, are all turning 30 this year. Josh Groban, who is turning 30 in a week’s time, had this to say about his milestone birthday: “My 20s have been filled with a lot of trial-by-fire moments and uncertainty, but I’m going to enjoy my 30s the way I should’ve enjoyed my 20s.” Who else is turning 30? You’d be surprised…

Check out the list of big names that are turning 30 this year…

Rising Artist Spotlight: Shirin

In: Donovan, Music

My latest selection for my “Rising Artist Spotlight” series is a talented 19-year-old singer/songwriter from the UK. Currently she’s unsigned, but I predict she won’t be for much longer and will be making a huge splash in the near future. Shirin, meaning “sweet” in Persian, hails from Fareham Hampshire and began her musical journey at the age of 10. In her teens, Shirin performed by invitation at Youth Festivals in Norway, Cyprus & New York where she was backed on piano by Producer KC Porter of LA (who continues to work with top level stars such as Enrique, Janet Jackson etc).

It was in New York in  2008 that she first caught the attention of Producers Marcus Bell & Jon Rezin of American Idol. This meeting was to forge an ongoing interest by Marcus & Jon in the career of Shirin as an emerging singer songwriter and so began the exchange of submissions of tracks for Shirin to song-write and record to. This was to culminate in a collaboration by Shirin & Marcus Bell in 2009 on a song called ‘Insomnia’ which stirred immediate interest in the UK.
