A Few Pop Culture Updates…

So Kimye is having another baby.  She’s beyond excited, y’all.  The rest of us just really want to know what she’s going to name it.  I’m guessing it’s going to be unique, what do you think?  I think they could also capitalize on hashtags if they went with “Baby SXSW”….or South by Southwest for those of you who needed a translation.  There is some mileage to get out of that one, you have to admit. And baby North (who will probably be slighted with just one name) seems just stoked about it as seen here. I mean…they really all do.

kimye.imgI’d be confused, too, North.  Especially because I wonder if her dad’s everyday vernacular is as bleeped out as most of his current live performances.

Anyway, enough about them. Let’s move onto Bruce.  (These Kardashians have put out a lot of news lately.)

Today, Vanity Fair went public with their new cover of Bruce as Her, complete with the name reveal. She is now called Caitlyn and I have to say, she looks pretty good. Better than I thought.

BruceAlso…as if we hadn’t had enough from the “Fifty Shades of Grey” trilogy, author E.L. James is penning a new novel for the series. From Christian Grey’s point of view.  Basically a “why are you so weird” and “how did you get this way” perspective.

It should be interesting?

Oh, and Paul McCartney isn’t smoking pot anymore. There goes any chance for a Sgt. Pepper’s remake. You have to respect the guy though. He’s a parent and a grandparent and has made the decision so that he can set a good example.

That’s all I’ve got for today! If you’re disappointed with that, take a look at Saturday’s post.  It’s long-winded and should satisfy you until my next chronicled adventure. If you’re still reading.  🙂

TGIF!!!!

ImageRemember these guys?!?! “Perfect Strangers”? Balki?? Estranged cousins living together? Hilarity ensues.

And remember the days as a kid that your big Friday night consisted of ordering pizza with your friends and watching TGIF on ABC? Here was the lineup, in case you’ve forgotten:  “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper”, “Perfect Strangers”, “Full House”, “Family Matters”, “Step By Step”, “Boy Meets World”.  Duh.  There are so many gems in there. The 90’s were good to their TV people! And I guarantee all of you crushed hard on at least one person in the TGIF family.

On another note, I think how I feel on Fridays is best described in that old Southwest Airlines commercial where all of the adults are spinning in their chairs at work, throwing papers in the air and peeling out in the parking lot like it’s the last day of school.  IT’S FRIDAY PEOPLE!!!!!  (Subsequently, I cannot find that video ANYWHERE on the inter webs….)

Also…sad day for Prague.  The government has banned the sales and export of liquor due to a bad batch of bootleg alcohol that caused several to die or become blind. I’d say that was not just a bad but a pretty bad batch. Sad for them also considering they’re one of the heaviest drinking nations in the world. (Did you know?) At least they still have beer. Does anyone else see the opportunity for their own modern-day version of “Boardwalk Empire”?  Hey, when life gives you lemons…make a tv show.  The Kardashians did.

Bet they wouldn’t have made friends on the TGIF lineup.
