Your Ex-Lover Needs You

A MySpace Bulletin from Stars (this is self-explanatory):

there are so many reasons to love so you think you can dance: it’s a talent show with actual talent on it, all the contestants are nice to each other, cat deeley is tall and pretty and dresses real good and has that ridiculous brummy accent, and it’s the gayest thing on tv since the cancellation of walker, texas ranger. And now there’s one more reason to love So You Think You Can Dance: on the last episode, our old chestnut Your Ex-Lover Is Dead was used for one of the dances. As a result of that wonderful exposure to the country, the song has gone into the itunes usa top 100, five years after being released! Fuckin Nice One! At the moment it sits at 84, but here’s the thing dudes…if all y’all who dont actually yet OWN (as opposed to possess) the song would go on itunes and buy it, just that tune…maybe we could make a real hit outta this thing….which would obviously be….wicked! So if your feeling generous and christmasy, why not help make your ex lover is dead the hit it almost has been for half a decade and help push it into the itunes usa top twenty….isn’t it time the rest of america got depressed and thought about all the fucked up relationships theyve had while listening to that tune, just like you guys probably have? Depress the USA! Make it a hit!

we love you all.. we’re working hard…..very good new things are soon to come….

and in case you have no idea who Stars is or what song they are referring to, WISE UP FOOLS:

The End.

p.s. I totally just asked them to appear in a POST on here a few days back AND LOOK WHAT HAPPENED!! Damn, I’m fucking good sometimes! Now it’s Justin Timberlake’s turn!!

FX causes us to wet yet another pair of pants!

leave a comment »

Summer 2005: It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
-An instant classic. Loved by all. We won’t be friends with someone who HASN’T seen this show! Has given us: Green Man, Riot Punch, Kitten Mittons, Dick Towel.

Fall 2009: The League
-New. Comes on after Sunny. I was skeptical at first. I don’t give a crap about fantasy football. Episode 1, two minutes in, and I’m laughing hysterically. I’m sorry I doubted you FX. I love Taco!

January 2010: Archer
-30 minute sneak peak aired after several RANDOM/NOT SO SUBTLE OR PG commercials ran to promote the show. Once again I said, “Stupid! Adult Swim knock-off bullsh*t!” Once again, I was WRONG! Hilarious! And cannot wait for it to air full time in January!

MORE SOON!!

Magic Hat Lately

with one comment

So, as per usual on a Friday night, I walked to my local beer distributor (Old Philly Ale House on 20th & Brandywine) to get my usual $7 PBR Pounders special because I like to start and end my nights cheap, and there was a beer tasting going on which they have been doing there a lot lately. I sipped a nice new little 8.4% ALC by volume Victory beer…way too “hoppy” for my liking! BLAH! So, on to the next one. Magic Hat, the brewers of the beloved #9, have a new Winter Seasonal out called HOWL. Yes please! At 4.6% ALC by volume, this black lager tips the scale of what Magic Hat tends to brew, as they don’t typically go over 5% by volume. My reaction? Goodbye summer ales and pumpkin lagers. Hello cold, dark at 5pm winter nights! Not too hoppy, and definitely not too light this new beer is a perfect balance for any avid beer enthusiast looking for that winter cold one! As expected, Magic Hat has not disappointed, they even have a hauntingly informative webpage dedicated to their new brew! Magic Hat Howl gets a mitten covered thumbs up from this beer girl!

p.s. Of course I mistakenly did not catch how much a 6-pack will run you. But I guarantee I will be picking one up in the very near future and will let you know. Cheers!

James L. Brooks Untitled Project in my neighborhood Lately

with one comment

So, all of Philadelphia knows that James L. Brooks (The Simpsons, As Good As It Gets, Terms of Endearment) is directing a movie being filmed in our city, starring: Paul Rudd, Reese Witherspoon, Jack Nicholson, and Owen Wilson.

Greater Philadelphia Film Office released a statement in July of this year stating, “Among the shooting locations are high-end restaurants, apartments, hospitals, hotels, office buildings, university campuses and other posh venues primarily in Center City…” High-End? Posh? Well okay.

In a few days, on a block that is known primarily for its faux-dog park, lack of parking and young professionals living in high-priced, anti-IKEA condos, James L. Brooks and the cast will be filming on location at 1913 Green Street. But, Melissa, how do you know this? Well, I live at 1901 and for the last several days we haven’t been able to park anywhere on my street because of the massive Sony Pictures trucks that have been unloading props and lighting and rigging all day. And come Monday August 31st, we aren’t allowed to park anywhere within a 5mile radius of Green Street it seems. Bullocks!

That dilema aside, I would like to focus on the EXCITEMENT aspect of this project. While many Green Street residents are moaning about the parking sitch, I am rejoicing at the fact that MOVIE STARS will be stepping foot on my street in a matter of days! It does not take much to excite me, so you can only imagine the euphoria that flows through me each time I pass a Sony Pictures truck or a crew member walking around. Ah!

In short: For those of you who can’t be on my block while filming takes place, I will be documenting this ordeal as the days progress. Filming begins Monday night, August 31st and ends sometime on September 2nd. In these few short days I will do all I can to bring you, my blog readers, a play-by-play account of the James L. Brooks happenings on my block! And YES, of course I am going to try to meet any star that will have me! And YES, of course I am going to try to have a sunglasses-off with Jack! There will be pictures galore, from the set-up process, to the filming, to perhaps just a shot of Reese Witherspoon’s empty water bottle! STAY TUNED!



So, we only got Paul Rudd. And I only got horribly candid pictures. Around 5pm when everyone started to get home from work, a large crowd gathered across the street and Mr. Rudd was kind enough to come over to say HELLO and let us paparazzi his ass for a few minutes! The film crew were very nice and accommodating to us, the star struck onlookers. All in all it was an exciting shindig for our block. Come back soon!

yum yum.


doh. sorry bout this one Paul




PR through the trees during the outside shot, which probably won’t even make the cut.

Bye Paul!

THAT’S A WRAP!
