#1: I just pre-ordered the complete Roseanne DVDs for $32! That price cannot be beat. #2: Every year, I fall in love with a slow-burning CBS procedural, and every year it gets canceled. RIP Golden Boy. CBS, you gotta stop doing this to me.
Every detail about this photo is so exactly how I imagined Channing Tatum growing up.
Why is Sheryl Crow in every single awards show ever? WHY? What does she even do when she’s not in an awards show? I hate itttttttt.
Chi McBride doing Irish accents forever.
You guys, what is Burn Notice even ABOUT?
The Fosters looks exactly like Second Noah amirite???
I don’t think I love Veronica Mars as much as the entire rest of the Internet loves Veronica mars.
English professor Internet critique: go! Also, vomit.

A vintage* text message conversation
Me: Burlesque is the best movie in the world. 5 minutes in. Sara: Ha omgg I need to watch Me: Seriously: ALL THE OSCARS TO BURLESQUE Me: Obviously, Peter Gallagher is in it. Sara: Hahahaba as a dancer? Me: No, owner. There was just literally the coyote ugly apartment break in scene shot for shot. The clothes are amazing. A WIN!!!! Sara: I need to watch Me (an hour later): It just continues...
Some things I love about America
The Voice liveblog, second thought
I CANNOT stress enough how disqualified you are.
The Voice liveblog, one thought
If you sing a Goo Goo Dolls song, you are automatically disqualified. And, scene.

I AM MOVED TO MAKE A POST: Adam Levine drives me crazy! He is just the most articulate coach, and so the musicians get tricked into thinking he’ll be the BEST coach. But that is not true. It’s almost never true!! Also, I think some of the girls go with him because they want to sleep with him, which is a little valid. That is all. MORE TO COME ON THIS.
Shit just got REAL...

Movie Reviews: 7 for 1
I now have a Netflix subscription, mainly so that I can watch DVDs on my actual television, especially movies I haven’t seen and don’t seem likely to see with anyone else. Movies for which the time has passed, so to speak. I shall endeavor to review them all. I Love You, Man Well, I had actually already seen this, and I watched it with friends. It is still pretty funny, though not...
National Treasures I Would Invite to the Opening...
Dolly Parton Mariah Carey Jay-z Beyonce Stan Lee Meryl Streep Kelly Clarkson Ellen Bill Murray Alvin Ailey LXD Michael Jordan Willie Nelson Woody Allen Martin Scorcese Muppets Yo-Yo Ma Pixar Sherman Alexie Barbra Streisand Joss Whedon
I kind of take it back
The LA Complex is pretty inSANE and I am a little over it?
You know, I’m happy So You Think You Can Dance is back on, but I am pretty much done with Nigel. As someone who also doles out opinions for a living, he makes me hate myself a little on principle.
A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
You guys!! THE LA COMPLEX, a television programme on the CW, is SO GOOD. Watch it!!! Alyssa Rosenberg agrees, also.
I miss Jordis. Who do I root for nowwww??
‘Magic Mike,’ Channing Tatum, and the Male Body as... →
Sometimes I forget about Alyssa Rosenberg (not sure why; clearly too busy hating myself while I read annoying style/mom blogs) but then I remember and recall why she is AWESOME! (There are like, way more smart reasons why she is awesome on her blog, but I feel this particular post is most relevant to my mission here at I Love Amanda Bynes.) Peace.
I’m sorry, but Rock Star: INXS kicked like every other music reality show’s ass somehow: Also, I just cannot for some reason figure out how to embed Hulu videos so that they both work AND do not play automatically. Sorry!
No! (A delayed reaction post to The Voice)
Ugh, Blake Shelton. You know! I just listened to his most recent album and it is not good. Also: Jordis 4ever.
I don’t know why I keep talking about American Idol on this blog, it is just always ON, but: Phillip Phillips is exactly Dave Matthews? Like, they are the same person? This makes me feel like PhPh will not be, ah, relevant if he wins? (Though, cf my thing about Alex Wong being terrible. Whatever! I like to just spout these things off!) ALSO: I now feel more legitimate/less cringy about this...
I love Bones. I love it! I mean, I don’t lovelove it, and I’m certainly not going to exhort my readers to watch it, but…I love it. In part, it’s true, I love it because it’s an hour-long show that solves every mystery within that hour; it helped me be more desensitized violence-wise for a project at my job; it does not take much concentration or emotional investment. ...
Footloose*, a conclusion
Really, kind of a good movie. But, why is there not more dancing? I know not every dance movie can be Step Up, but WHY NOT? (*the new one)
This is why Jordis Unga should win The Voice
Also, pretty excited I managed to embed that Hulu clip. It was touch and go for awhile.
Brad Renfro only made 4 non-rated R movies in his entire career.
Some more best things
American Idol moment
Randy: “You remind me so much of Dave Matthews. I can’t believe an indie artist like that would come through American Idol.”
Life imitating art or at least TV
I just watched Smash and the “karaoke bar” where whatsherface sings “Red Neck Woman” is IN FACT Hill Country on 26th Street where I sang live band karaoke for the first and probably only ever time. I was very drunk off whiskey, and I sang “You Ain’t Woman Enough to Take My Man” and it was very hard! NYC YOU GUYS.
So, when Genie in a Bottle came out, I really hated it. HATED it. And I’m going to stand by that opinion, because I was just listening to it again, and the song totally sucks. But, I do now love Christina Aguilera. So much so that it pains me to listen to the rumors that she is an insufferable diva on the set of The Voice and everyone hates her. Even though they seem kind of probable?...
Ahhhh the best thing?
And by that, I mean the best “celebrity fame-whoring thing”. Also, unlike my previous post this is not at all a sign of my bad taste, this is a sign of my GREAT taste.
WHAT is happening to my LIFE?
I just had a terrible moment watching Maroon 5 videos on YouTube (because I am currently involved in this very intense love/hate crush on Adam Levine that I CANNOT EXPLAIN). Anyway, I actually only watched one, which was “Misery” and as I was watching I had the biggest sense of deja vu and was like “hey—I know this song already and like it.” And then I was like...
Celebrity couples I just really like
Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green Dave Navarro and Carmen Electra :( Evan Rachel Wood and Jamie Bell Pic 1, 2, 3
VERY EXCITING NEWS
Jordis Unga, our favorite, is back in our homes and our hearts as a contestant on THE VOICE, which I always knew was my second favorite vocal reality show of all time for some reason. And that reason is that Jordis Unga is/was on BOTH OF THEM. I am really so invested in her success on this show and I got more excited about her appearance on my TV this week than I have been about anything in the...
My review of Joyful Noise, via an email to Elena
I enjoyed it the longer it was since I’d seen it. Dolly’s new songs are totally great. Kris Kristofferson does his thing, which is very minimal at this point. Jesse L Martin is in it, but doesn’t sing (?). It’s not as good as Sister Act 2 but what is. Basically, I cannot give you advice one way or the other, but I definitely enjoyed watching it. It’s weird.
GLEE LIVEBLOG, that is right
Do you guys remember when Adam Lambert sang MJ’s “Black or White” on American Idol and it was what it was? It was just so, so, so much better than what just happened here.
Someone recently gave me a free subscription to The New Yorker, and so I have been getting it, and sometimes reading it. My new favorite thing about it is the way they transcribe gchat conversations: “I’m just like LOL / Maybe I’m still a little buzzed.” Way to use the small caps, way to pretend it’s poetry, way to go.
This remains my favorite American Idol moment
And also, kind of one of my favorite moments, period. The main reason I like it, and I feel like this is from a recap maybe posted on Videogum (?), is the way Kara’s face looks: it is like “I wrote this thing, and only now am I realizing that it’s beautiful”. The change in her face is amazing. I also just really like the idea that the most beautiful moments involving...
Things I really like:
+The romanticization of America See also: Cassie’s wardrobe change when she arrives in NYC at the end of the second season of Skins.
Pretty Little Liars thought from a few episodes...
Also, I hate Toby so much. SO MUCH. Why is he still on the show?
Pretty Little Liars thought from a few episodes...
Sooo….Ezra’s ex-girlfriend is totally a crazy bitch, but ALSO she is RIGHT about his relationship with Aria?!? Why is no one else just being like “she is a TEENAGER. You were her TEACHER.” That really, REALLY sums it up.
So, I’ve been watching Revenge. And here’s the thing. It’s good, right? But it’s not THAT good. 1) It’s ridiculous. Right? I mean, the whole thing is totally ridiculous, and yet it’s SO SERIOUS about everything, and also, not on the CW. 2) Nothing happens on this show, except for the revenge business. There are no layers, people! And it’s not like this...
Drive Me Crazy
So, it’s pretty weird that I haven’t talked about Drive Me Crazy yet because it is definitely one of my favorite movies of all time. I’m not even going to talk about it much except to say: This feels like a very reasonable music video dance that I could learn to do. And I WILL. ALSO: The thing with this movie is that it’s like backwards day for me. I really, REALLY hate...
