America’s Next Top Model Controversy

It’s been awhile since I last posted about ANTM and thought it was time to comment again.

The ladies are now in Italy and last week they shot commercials for Cover Girl.

It was no surprise that Lauren. was. sent. home.  (An ANTM reference)

She can’t walk and was buckling under the pressure.  Whitney was on the chopping block too.  What do you think? Is she Top Model material?

I would say my top two pics would be Katarzyna and Anya.  The thing is, Anya has that really strange accent.  Somebody, tell me what is that all about?  But I will say Anya seems like a really sweet person.

Now on to the latest buzz.  In a report on the New York Post,  The Parents Television Council has filed an indecency complaint with the FCC over the March 26 episode where

“…a model posing for photographs, fully nude, while lying on a bed.

While the nudity was partially blurred, PTC president Tim Winter called it ‘irresponsible’ and said it ‘crossed the legal threshold for broadcast indecency.’ “

Isn’t this the episode when Anya won a photo shoot with Nigel? I did some digging on YouTube and here is the video.  Fast forward to near the end.  Notice that when Anya is getting ready, there is a nude colored thong hanging up to put on.  I don’t think she was totally nude.  You be the judge.

I find it interesting that there wasn’t any outrage (or at least I didn’t hear of any) when one of the ladies breasts were exposed during a High School fashion show.  The boys got a little treat that day.

Return Of The Kids In The Hall

kids

I’m so excited to hear that the Canadian cross dressing comedy troupe Kids In The Hall are coming to town on their 30 city two month tour.

For those of you who aren’t familiar, the group had a cult following during their run on television from 1988-1995.  They were famous for sketches like The Chicken Lady, Head Crusher, The Eradicator and the effeminate bar fly  Buddy Cole.  (click on afore-mentioned links for videos)

An admirable quality about their work is the timelessness of their material.  Sketches like this one with my favorite re-occurring characters Fran and Gordon are just as funny now as they were 18+ years ago.  In this skit Gordon announces that he has been fired and blames Fran because she sent him to work with his soup in a bag for lunch.

In celebration of the new tour, AV Club.com has a terrific new interview catching up with the guys after opening night of their “Live As We’ll Ever Be” show.

In the interview, the guys reveal the genesis of their new collaboration, what it is like to work together again, their sense of humor and if they still feel confident in dresses.

It’s a fascinating read. Click here for the full interview and bonus video clips.

Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow

Alright guys, it’s time for your opinion.  Before she was a judge on American Idol, Paula Abdul had her start as a Laker Girl, then choreographer to Janet Jackson and then a full fledged pop star with hits like “Straight Up” and  (It’s Just)”The Way That You Love Me”.

Now, she has decided to give pop stardom another try.  Below, you will find Paula Abdul’s new video, “Dance Like There’s No Tomorrow”.  I have been hearing rumors that MTV will not play this video because it is so awful and the dance moves are out dated.

After watching the video, it was really hard to take it seriously with Randy rockin’ out.  The words “Yo, dog!” kept running through my mind.  Is this a pathetic cry for attention or a serious musical endeavor?

What’s your opinion? Dance Worthy or Dud?

Gimme A Hug!

destin_106_01_320x240

Millionaire Matchmaker had a bit of a marathon going this weekend and I had a chance to watch a few shows.  I think I have watched 5 so far.  So here are my observations.

I love how direct Patti is.  She lays it on the line.  There’s no guessing with her and I really like that.  A lot of us are worried about hurting people’s feelings and don’t tell them certain truths that they need to hear. 

That’s not to say that she doesn’t drive her staff crazy.  One of the episodes that I watched, two of the staffers were plotting to start their own matchmaking service after being spurned by their boss.

Patti also seems to have a way of being direct with the guys without being “Bitchy” to them; at least I think so.  I get a kick  out of seeing her greet  the guys; “Gimme a hug!”  For some reason, it cracks me up.

I also appreciate the fact that she does not like her clients to engage in sex until he is in a mutually monogamous relationship.  It gives them time to really get to know one another first.  Click here for a list of her “commandments “.  What do you think?  Do you agree with her rules?

One misconception that I had when I first heard about this show was that the girls were going to be a bunch of gold diggers or whores.  I get the impression that Patti does her best to screen those gals out.  I remember a really crazy woman who came in for a meeting that looked like a stripper and Patti called her out.  The woman was really offended, but Patti was right.  This lady looked like she was ready to wrap herself around a pole or meet up with her John.

patti_ep106_03

Now we have to talk about some of the guys.  What about that crazy roller skating guy and the guy who kept telling his date how pretty she was?  That was really getting creepy.  There is also a guy who only wants to date girls in their early twenty’s and he is about 15-20 years older than them.  Just get a grip man.  Patti was right, they may go out with you once, but they will soon move on.

I thought the promos said that Tuesday will be the season finale, but I didn’t see anything on the website that mentioned it.  Anyhow, it appears from the promos that some fool asks a girl to marry him on the first date.  I’m sure Patti will have some choice words for him.

Now it’s your turn to chime in.  What do you think?  Who was your favorite millionaire?  What do you think of Patti?  How about the girls?

Did you hear the joke…

Did you ever hear the joke about the girl whose breasts were so big they gave her a black eye?

Well one Canadian advertising agency took that joke one step further with it’s ad campaign for Running Free sports bras.

“Support bras now available”

Runningeyes_preview Runningnose_preview Runningteeth_preview

But here’s a little twist of controversy.  When I saw these ads on the internet, I assumed that they were commercial ads already in use.  I went looking for the actual bras.

That’s when I went back to the site I found them on and started reading the comments section. I noticed this comment on the bottom:

Please update your post. This note is from the owner. Thanks!


my name is Nick Capra I am the owner of Running Free. Those horrendous images were pitched to us by an ad agency.

When we saw them our first reaction was “you’ve got to be kidding me”.

We will never and have never used those pathetic excuses for marketing. Our reaction to them was as yours was and how they got out on to the internet is beyond me. I’m
sorry they did and I’m sorry you and who ever else is distressed by them has to waist their time and energy thinking about them.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to speak about this
further.
