I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it!

It’s a very sad time in reality tv land… The Bad Girls Club is over!! You have no idea how deeply sad I am that such an immensely entertaining show is over. Watching those bad girls fight over everything seemingly possible would truly make my week. I hope to do a season recap in their honor sometime soon.

On to more exciting and uplifting news… there are a bunch of new reality tv shows that will be debuting very soon!

1. The Cougar: a show on Tv Land whose premise is about Stacey, a 40 year old mother of four from Arizona, who is choosing to break dating as well as female stereotypes by seeking to date men who are significantly younger than her. You know, young hotties with six packs and highlights.

Prediction: Tons of awkward moments of immaturity. Daily comments about how much they want to “bone” her. Constantly referring to her as a “cougar”. Some bromance most likely.

Preview: “Because in the end only one young man will prove himself worthy to be with the cougar

2. Daisy of Love: Yet another dating show on VH1 starring Daisy de la Hoya( who is supposedly Oscar de la Hoya’s niece or something) from Rock of Love 2. She’s on a search for love once again,after being dumped by hair extension fanatic Bret Micheals. She must be sooo psyched to be on tv for just a little while longer.

Prediction: THIS IS GONNA BE FUCKIN AMAZING. Tons of drunk bros who listen to Linkin Park and Staind. Some skinny dudes wearing makeup who wish they were in Poison. Tons of head banging. Boobs Boobs Boobs. Booze Booze Booze.

Preview: Soooo I couldn’t figure out how to insert a VH1 preview so you will have to settle for this youtube video which shows you all the dudes! As well as the names they’ve been given by Daisy! My favorite guy is Torch because seriously it looks like he’s on fire.

3. The Real Housewives of New Jersey: If you’ve seen any of the Real Housewives series than you already know what this is about. If you haven’t, New Fuckin Jersey. Just watch it, okay!
njhousewives31809Jersey’s never looked so good.

Prediction: A lot of hand gesturing. Tons of hair spray. Six Flags. New girl is shunned and called a whore. Shopping, tanning, waxing, french tip manicures. Family always comes first.

Preview: ” She was involved with kidnapping… Colombian cartel…” Also, I feel like the fact that this video is so poorly made reflects on what kind of show this is going to be.

(Only)Kiss Me Thru The Phone

It’s been a while… BUT I’M BACK!

I’m sorry I’ve been absent for such an extended period of time but I’ve just been really busy doing nothing. Well, you know I have been doing things… but nothing as gratifying as writing about nonsense on this blog. On a side note, It is really weird to be speaking to an imaginary audience. Meaning, it is weird to apologize to “you” when “you” is probably no one. Therefore I will pretend “you” is my blog. As in my blog has feelings that can be hurt by my writing neglect.

During my last post I stated that I would be doing a lot of TV blogging in the near future but I’m postponing that for now. There is a much more serious topic that I feel I need to talk about: SEXTING(sex texting)

So, I was watching The Tyra Banks Show sometime last week because there was nothing better on( seriously, I do not like that show. ANTM I can handle but having to listen to Tyra talk about how great of a role model she is for a whole hour just makes me want to puke). The segment was about “sexting” which is supposedly some new phenomenon amoung teenagers. Basically sexting involves sending either nude pictures of yourself or explicit sexual messages via texting.
sext
The devil comes in all shapes and sizes.

Since watching this episode, sexting has become a fuckin craze! It is literally making parents, adults, and anyone who thinks they should have a say in this matter go fuckin nuts. Everyone is scared shitless that their teens too are “sexting”. It always amazes me when parents are shocked( or at least appear to be) that their kids are having sex or are exploring their sexuality. Furthermore, whenever parents are going mad about kids having sex I feel like a lot of the shame is put on young women. Most of the conversation surrounding sexting has been directed towards young girls. Even though I understand teen girls might be the ones who are largely participating in “sexting”, isn’t it worth examining what this supposedly new pheneomenon means for teens in general? Especially what it means for the healthy sexual development of all teens. The following(hilarious) video has been made by Brick House Security(who the hell is that?) as a preventative measure to educate people on the harm of sexting.

I think the best way to examine that video is by listing my top 5 moments.
5. “What does a 14 year old have to hide from their parents?” uhhhhh….EVERYTHING!
4. Sprint employee explaining text messaging “You actually have what most teenagers use is text messaging” C’mon he knows she knows what text messaging is. He might as well explain what facebook is. SHE KNOWS.
3.Dawn Tongish. Whattalastname.
2.The fact that they couldn’t even get the CEO of their lame company to make an apearance. Instead they had him call in which is creepy because he’s breathing hard.
1.GRANDMA IS WATCHING! “I would resort to snoopin, I certainly would.”

Bestest moment/even better than #1: Girl texting (possibly sexting) while cat is sitting on her lap( Hahahaha So I seriously thought that was a cat but it’s actually a dog on her lap! It always amazes me how having so many friends who are obsessed with cats rubs off on me)

Even though that video is pretty much hilarious, this whole sexting thing really does have many people incredibly upset. So upset that a group of teens in PA were being charged with child pornography because they allowed themselves to be photographed which is….bullshit. Thankfully, the judge has ruled in favor of the teens and is actually filing a restraining order against the district attorney who tried to charge them with child pornography in the first place.

All of this is such bullshit. I understand why sending naked pictures of yourself via text may not be the best idea but it seems like to me that the real reason everyone is so upset is because young girls are being so explicit about their sexuality in general. The reason why girls feel compelled to “sext” largely varies and because of that very reason we cannot make large assumptions that this is in fact harmful for teens. I know that as women we are constantly made to feel corporeal, meaning we are always made to feel constrained to our anatomy/bodies. This leads to the development of specific gender roles that are designated to us simply because of our anatomy such as mother/nurturer or even to the way women’s bodies are commodified and exploited for financial gain. Anywho, I’m not attempting to find a solution to this sexting epidemic because I actually dont believe it’s a problem at all. I think sexuality and sexual expression(s) are incredibly diverse and compliacted. Especially teen sexuality which is often confusing, scary, and plain awkward. Basically, I just find it fuckin annoying that everyone refuses to actually engage in real, honest conversations about this but then again when do real, honest anything happen in the media.

I really hope this whole “sexting” craze dies down. I hope they discover something else new and disturbing about teens. This reminds me that I have to watch Gossip Girl this monday. I missed it last week and hated myself forever for doing so. I’ll end this post with a video very much related to the topic of sexting. Soulja Boy gives sexting crazed teens a lesson in phone etiquette: Kissing is allowed but crotch shots are not.

Punks Do It Better

So, I googled riot grrrl punk and I got this picture:

I don’t really recall an all baby fronted riot grrrl band but I do tend to forget things. This baby has probably had many a night covered in sweat and beer…I felt weird even writing that sentence. I feel weird even having a picture of a baby on this blog.

I’ve been wanting to go to a show lately. Like really badly. I feel like whenever I feel myself getting in a bad mood I begin to yearn for loud music, sweaty bodies, and beerz. I also like getting thrown around and pushing people for no reason other than because I can. Punk makes me so nostalgic which is freakin crazy because it’s not like those years are so behind me that I can really afford to do that. It also makes me feel super anxious and kind of sad that I’ve never started a band. Too bad I never continued learning how to play guitar. Guitar was never my thing though. I always wanted to play the drums. I remember even asking my guitar teacher if he could secretly teach me how to play the drums instead of guitar. But my mom never thought playing the drums was ladylike or whatever so that never happened. All I can do now is dream I guess. Dream of a drum set. Or get off my lazy ass and actually learn how to play. I could do that also.

I was gonna write a post on more Mariah but I feel like maybe I need to cut back on how often I bring her up both in this blog and in my daily interactions.It’s hard though I must say. I think about her constantly. Like just now I’ve been going back and forth from listening to riot grrrl music and Mariah songs. I wonder what a mashup of “Reject All American” and “Dreamlover” would sound like. Amazing probably. Or like shit. Either way I’m all about it.

How long will this attempt at blogging last?

Hello internets people

I have never finished anything I’ve started. I once took guitar lessons when I was around 12 years old and only lasted a month(it was a pretty commendable effort actually). This destructive habit has followed me for the majority of my life. Whether it was dance classes or piano classes or any job I’ve ever had. I mean, it is pretty self-destructive, but I also feel like I just have a low tolerance for bullshit. I don’t like feeling bored or trapped or in some kind of continuous pattern for too long so I usually find a reason(either real or made up) to discontinue any activities that are not worthwhile. So, how does blogging relate to all the unnecessary info I just revealed about myself? Well, this project is actually something I want to stick through. I don’t want to forget the name of my blog or my password and decide that it is just to hard to find all that info all over again so giving up is the reasonable thing to do. I want this to be a constant in my daily life. Not in an annoying kind of way but I want to want to write everyday.

Anywhoo I’m annoying and think too much. This will be further revealed in my following posts in which I will talk about anything and everything. I will talk about the things that I love/ hate. Trust me, it is hard to love something in it’s entirety without being critical. Let’s face it most things exist in grey areas that make us uncomfortable but being uncomfortable is actually a good thing because it makes us think and analyze that which makes our palms sweaty and bodies squirm. So, I’m off to watch the second to last episode of The L Word because well I have to since it’s supposedly some big deal that this series is coming to a close. I wonder if lesbians will continue to exist post-L Word…I will give you all an update after next week. Maybe I will choose to blog about the episode but then again lately The L Word has not been so blog-worthy. Seriously, I keep hoping baby Angelica is the one who kills Jenny. Because nothing grabs my attention like a 3 year old killer on the loose.

Also, I will explain why I’ve posted the following video in future posts but as for now…ENJOY:
