American Horror Story

Why the fuck is nobody talking about this show? Rome Girl and I stumbled upon it earlier this week when a friend recommended it. We blew through the eight episodes that have come out for it so far in lightning speed.

Holy mother of fuck is this a good show. It's creepy in all the right ways. It's also really edgy for a show that not on HBO or Showtime. I can't remember the last time I saw a show which featured a married white woman using a vibrator on herself while fantasizing about a young black dude who is not her husband. And scenes like that are not just thrown in for titillation - they actually make sense plot wise.

Jessica Lang gives one of her best performances of the last decade and for once Dylan McDermott appears to be a good actor.

It even has Zac Quinto in it!

How in the name of god has this show not achieved cult status?

Anyway, I don't want to talk too much about it, because the show is full of surprises, but, seriously, if you are looking for an excellent new show to watch, start downloading episodes of it now.

Game Of Turkeys

I love that one of the top trending topics on Twitter yesterday was #gameofturkeys.

It was people taking lines from Game of Thrones and inserting Thanksgiving related shit into it.

My faves:

"Dinner is coming."

"Mommy, make the bad turkey fly."

and

"This bird is of the north - it deserves better than a butcher."

LOST

Rome Girl and I were just having a debate. If Sawyer from LOST cut his hair do you think you'd be able to recognize him if you passed him on the street or were waiting in line behind him at the grocery store?

She says "yes" because of his jawline. I'm not so sure.

Rock And Roll Trivia

It's a holiday weekend. I'm bored, so I might as well do Rock And Roll Trivia a day early. You know the rules - I post the lyrics, see how many songs you can get without Google.

1. I'm 6s and 7s and 9s.

2. Techno was proven wrong.

3. A simple prop to occupy my time.

4. Does anybody else here feel the way I do?

5. That's about the time that bitch hung up on me.

6. I don't hardly know her, but I think I could love her.

7. Let it be written. Let it be done.

8. My only words of wisdom are "suck my dick."

9. Were you born to resist, or be abused?

10. I don't know what I want, but I know how to get it.
