Blossoming into Motherhood

Well, our friend of yore, Mayim Bialik, is now a hippie mom extraordinaire. OK, that might be a little unfair. As a new mummy, I was curious to see her take on being a mother. And, wow-wow-we-wah, I was not let down. It was quite an unusual take on parenting. Please click HERE to see what she has to say. Seriously, you won't be sorry.

Buuuuuuuuuuut, if you're too busy, here are my three favorite highlights:

1) Her voice has dropped about three and a half octaves since the day (as in, "back in"). I thought she was a queen with a very strong resemblance to our Blossom friend for a second.

2) She recommends sleeping with the baby in the bed and practicing on-demand feeding. That's cool. But does on-demand feeding REALLY mean whippin' your teet out in public? I love how she's barely even holding the baby's head.

3) Baby's are smart. They're born potty-trained. It's the PARENTS who need to be potty-trained to read their baby's potty cues. Her uber smart kids were pissin' in the pot by the time they were one. I'll go buy her award at Trophy Time. They got some really nice shee.
And all of these motherly intuitions is what a Ph.D. gets ya! Holla!

Chill Out!

If these are "short shorts," all those offended should come to Franklin Middle School and see what real short shorts look like. Oh, baby, please! Get over it! I bet her fingertips still touch the bottom hemline, which is more than I can say for our lil tartlets at FMS.

Of Course He Is

Who is "He?"---Donny Osmond.

What is "He" doing?---Entering the heated competition that is "Dancing with the Stars."

I've never watched that show...not even when sweet Joey Mac was on. But I might have to tune in to see this former teen idol try to regain the hearts of America's women. He's sure got the bite to do it. (YES! Pun totally intended. If I was too quick: bite, teeth, he's got HUGE should get it now.) All those Osmonds live for nowadays is becoming A-listers again, but I've got to ask: Were they EVER A-listers in the first place?

And, one TOTALLY random contestant is Iron Chef America's chairman, Mark Dacascos. HUH!?! I bet the original chairman from Japan would sweep the floor with Mr. Dacascos, who I've seen dabbling in SyFy made-for-TV-movies. Yup. But, he only works with the cream of the crop, because Billy Zane was also in the "film" he was in, "Alien Agent."

End of Summer Watchin'

Here are a couple of gems to keep your eyes peeled for in these dog days of summer:

Antonio Sabato, Jr., a la Brett Michaels--That's right, folks. My old middle school soapy crush, Antonio Sabato, has been deemed worthy for a Brett Michaels-esque dating show on VH-1, "My Antonio." Seriously, where did they find him? All I see him on is TV Guide network on the red carpet of family flicks with his son. I just find him such a random pick to be on a VH-1 reality show. Now, he's still got the looks, that's fo' sho', cause, as in the case of most men, he gets better looking the older he gets. (Stupid men. I think that's another punishment from Eve's eating mishap.) Check his show out starting on Elvis Dead Day, August 16...then it'll be on every single day if you miss it.

Brian Boitano is not just a fancy skater--I am giddy with anticipation for this one! I've actually been pumped for a few weeks, but keep forgetting to blog about it. That's right, folks, Brian Boitano can skate AND cook: whatta catch! "What Would Brian Boitano Make?" airs it's premiere episode on August 23 (huh, a week after Sabato). I can't wait to see how Boitano skates his way around a kitchen with his friends watching as he does. He's already got several clips up on, so click the link above to check them out.

School might be about to start, mummy might be about to leave daughter behind, but we'll have some good watchin' waitin' for us on the weekends. Every cloud...

Cruise Squared

I feel it is my duty, as a pop culture bloggist, to let you all know that yes, Connor Cruise is pursuing a career in acting. I'm sure Papa Cruise* will help him hone is craft in the remake of the 1984 classic "Red Dawn." (Cause, remember, Hollywood can't think of any new ideas, so they're recycling the old ones.) I can't wait to see what kind of acting choppers Connor will produce. One thing is for sure, he's got the old man's sense of sunglasses style. Look at these two!

*Speaking of Tommy, have you SEEN the new Scientology commercial!?! Two syllables: price & less.

R.I.P.: My Top 10 John Hughes Films

Don't be hatin' if your favorite isn't mine. Let's just celebrate the genius that was John Hughes. He won't get half as much press as Michael Jackson or Farrah Fawcett, but he was just as pop culturally relevant. And, for those of us who grew up in 80's America, he'll be sorely missed. His comedies shaped my young life, and his writing still runs around my head and out my mouth several times a day. He stepped out of Hollywood's glare several years ago, but he still wrote under a pen name, Edmond Dantes.

10. Nate & Hayes--I'll give anyone $10 who's seen this Tommy Lee Jones gem. Husband doesn't count for this one.

9. Christmas Vacation--"Ah, the shitter's full. Have you checked our shitters, honey?"

8. Pretty in Pink--"This is Otis. I love Otis."

7. Great Outdoors--I dare you to eat a 96'er and make it out alive.

6. The Breakfast Club--"You mess with the bull, you get the horns."

5. Vacation--"The ole Miss...the ole man."

4. Mr. Mom--I had a whoobie, too.

3. Uncle Buck--I'm still ticked TNT, TBS, and USA don't show this on Thanksgiving anymore. I used to watch it three times on Thanksgiving back in the day. Cori know what I'm talkin' 'bout.

2. Ferris Bueller's Day Off--"She's in Decatur. Unfortunately, she isn't staying."

"If you had a car like this, would you take it back right away?"

1. Sixteen Candles--

"Where the hell am I?"

"I'll tell you where you are; I can't tell you who you are."

"I'm Farmer Ted."

Now, take a moment to dust off those old VHS's, yes I know you still got 'em, and celebrate the late, great John Hughes. Plan your Hughes Fest tonight, and relive the first time you saw Farmer Ted, watched Ducky dance to Otis, went on a vacation with the Griswolds, or laid eyes on the hottest guy in school, Jake Ryan.

To Watch or Not to Watch... NOT a question in this case. David Tennant is bringing his Hamlet to the small screen. According to entertainment news bible, Variety, it will air on PBS in 2010. Tennant's run as Hamlet in London's West End was sold out nightly, but now we'll all get a chance to revel in his depressed-doomed-lovin'-his-mummy prince on public television.

Also, don't forget his stint as "Masterpiece Contemporary" host starts this October on your local PBS station. This announcement was made possible by Viewers Like You...and Brian, who keyed us in to the big news.
