Needs to be seen…

Props to Humanity Critic for sharing…


I admit it, I like this song.

I feel like I shouldn’t like Lady Gaga. They still play Just Dance on a regular rotation on the radio here, and I still listen to it every time it comes on. I don’t feel like it’s a great song or a CD I’d want to buy. When I first heard it, I thought “who is this, Taylor Swift? Off.” And then, um…I liked it. Also, side note: I only just realized that Taylor Swift and Taylor Hicks are two entirely different people.

Anyhow, Lady Gaga’s second hit is getting regular play and as much as I feel like it sounds kind of outdated, I kinda love it.

It makes me want to go live out True Life:I’m a Jersey Shore Girl. Go head out to “the shore” and hit some techno club and dance with overmuscled, spikey haired dude with orange skin. Preferably in a room filled with bubble foam, or whatever that shit is that they do. And I am not even making fun of shore-goers; I truly think that would be a lot of fun.


Jam of the Day

Admit it, you loved this song. And probably still do.


Eyeroll-worthy news:I know McNuggets are the shizz…but…

OrangeyaIf you haven’t already heard, a woman called the police numerous times because McDonalds was out of nuggets. That’s not the full story of course–I think what drove her to call in the first place was that they wouldn’t give her a refund. Although I can’t be sure, because she did say “this is an emergency, my McNuggets are an emergency“. Which–look, I know nuggets are one of those comfort foods from our childhoods that we kind of can’t stop ourselves from getting sometimes…but they are not an emergency.[Side note:am I the only one who misses those little styrofoam boxes they came in with the little area to store your nugget sauce? No, I know I’m not—they talked about that in one of the I Love the 80s installments]
Listen to her calls here

And if you look at the other stories on the righ of that page, she’s not the only Floridian to call 911 over a fast food chain not having what they want.

I don’t get why they didn’t just give her a refund in the first place though. I also don’t get how people get so worked up over fast food(because, for real, she could have just driven a few more minutes to another McDonalds). I worked at McDonald’s for 2 years as my first job(and we killed it:our service was fantastic) and people got pissed off at the most random, stupid shit. Let me let y’all in on something: getting worked up and yelling in that environment only does one thing: guarantees we will be back in the break room making fun of your ass on our next break. We’re not tripping over your outburst over having to pay for that extra slice of cheese. ‘Nother little tidbit: Remember when McDonald’s had that 2 for $2 special on either Big Macs or Quarter Pounders? I once has someone ask me “How much is the 2 for 2?”. SMH.

Damn, I think I want a Quarter Pounder now…

Still here!

Lost internet access for an undetermined amount of time. How to live without internet? I’ll tell you—stay in the office 3 hours after getting off work. But I didn’t blog though…I caught up on video of my favorite shows. Still need to catch the new Celebrity Rehab. I’m living without cable too y’all.  It ain’t pretty. I’m saving for a laptop….


Pop Culture Moments from My Adolescence

In my last entry, I talked to you about being an 80s child. But I also see myself as a 90s child as well, and if there were ever a Wonder Years type show based on my coming of age years, the soundtrack would be filled with New Jack Swing from the early 90s. So I’ll be posting videos on occasion that take me back to a simpler time, like those days in junior high when I had a crush on Rostell, the guy who wore all his pants backwards to be like Kriss Kross. ‘Member that? He hung onto that trend way longer than he should have too.

Here’s the first video. Ah, Monday nights at 730 in 7th grade—-were spent rapping along to the theme song to this show.


Heller…

Heller. Let’s get this first[or second,actually] post out of the way.

What can you expect from this blog? Completely random show recaps, pop culture commentary, perhaps a bit of celebrity gossip, me bitching about various things(like taking the bus), daily observations, and when I get some actual money, frequent pics and video blogs.

“Blue-eyed soul” singers are white artists who’ve got that flava you don’t usually expect. I like to think I’ve got some flava, and yet I still can’t do the tootsie roll(okay, I do it in the privacy of my own home, but never in public) and I do a lot of things they talk about on Stuff White People Like. We’ll talk a little about that here too. I watched the new 90210 last night just to see Kelly Taylor again and I’m dying to know who her baby daddy is, so that’s my whiteness creeping out. I really want to go see NKOTB in concert too. So, more whiteness.

Soooo….I hope you’re amused enough to stop by on a regular basis.
