GLEEful thoughts…

15 Apr

So, I watched a few episodes of Glee last season, but never was an avid fan.

Yesterday, I watched the most recent episode – and, I admit it – I’m now hooked. What a lighthearted, fun, and funny show, that, to me, just about ANYONE can enjoy. I love it! So fabulously, deliciously creative!

Official, born-again “Gleek” right here!

Anyone have the DVD so I can catch up on past episodes?

And who’s excited for the Madonna episode?

While I personally consider Madonna vastly overrated (yes. I just said that.) I’m looking forward to it. Her tunes are timeless, are oh-so-fun ~ just like the show!

Romantically Challenged in Pittsburgh – Set your DVR’s!

29 Mar

Pittsburghers,  set your DVR’s!

ABC’s “Romantically Challenged” stars fan favorite and “Twitter queen”, Alyssa Milano (of Charmed and Who’s the Boss fame) and will be set in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

It will air on April 12th, 2010 at 9:30 p.m. EST (well, actually, 9:32 to be precise.)

The producer Ricky Blitt wanted the comedy to be set in a city with a “small-town” feel … plus, he is a huge Pittsburgh Penguins fan!

Leaving the Runway … [SPOILER]

26 Mar

I’m appalled that Anthony from Project Runway got the boot tonight! His demeanor was utterly charming and he was always so upbeat.

The judges criticizing him for always using a similar, simple, silhouette, but he designed beautiful, feminine, and ladylike dresses that I feel most women would love to wear.

Is there any reason they are keeping MILA around with her space suits and color-blocking? WE GET IT! I mean, I think that her taste is too costumey, comic-book-ish, and too “out there” for the general public … yet it is too simple and subdued for the likes of Lady GaGa. (Some great analysis on her work this evening, here)

I am truly bummed that Anthony is leaving. He was so entertaining and talented; and I actually liked his dress tonight. Looks like I’ll now continue to pull for Seth Aaron. (Emilio is pretty good, too.)

Michael Kors was PMS’ing this evening, though, if I do say so myself. In fact … I think the whole judging panel was acting like someone stole their sunshine away.

Poor Anthony.

I’ll leave you with his words of wisdom:

“JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T HAVE THE CROWN, DOESN’T MEAN YOU CAN’T BE THE QUEEN.”

Words to live by.

What do you think? There were a few outfits WAY more horrendous than his designs! Check out his online portfolio here.

The Office and Grey’s and Runway, Oh My! (Vampire Diaries, too!)

25 Mar

Sooo. It’s a TV night.

Who are your favorites this season on Project Runway? I personally was a fan of Amy until she got the boot; now I really dig Seth Aaron and Anthony!

As for Grey’s Anatomy – have you all heard the news? Katherine Heigl and her new brunette ‘do are done with the show. Is this a surprise to anyone? Or news to anyone? (Um, if so…Belated Spoiler Alert?)

I’ll miss Izzy Stevens and all her neuroses … but, I kind of have a love/hate relationship with Heigl. Anyone else?   I am looking forward to seeing what types of movies she does. I’ll admit, I was a fan of The Ugly Truth and Knocked Up. Big time.

I’m glad we have DVR because I’d be lost without it.

The Office is on Thursdays, too, and is another FAVORITE. I don’t know how ANY HUMAN could resist The Office. I think it is truly one of the funniest shows EVER! (Does anyone else just adore Jim & Pam?)

And one comment on Vampire Diaries: (Yes, I watch it, don’t laugh)  — was it a casting REQUIREMENT that you had to be a MODEL to be on that show? I mean, is anyone NOT hot in the cast?

Who’s watching what? Every night’s a TV night with me…and I’m gosh-darn proud of it!  😉
