"Dancing with the Stars" is NOT Racist (Brandy's Elimination)

     Did Brandy get cut from "Dancing with the Stars" because she's black? No way, José. Here's the true (i.e. OBVIOUS) reason was she eliminated...

I realize that I accidentally referred to Bristol and Brandy as the bottom two in this video. As others have pointed out to me, though, there is nothing to indicate that Bristol actually received the second least votes. Excuse my poor oversight.

The iPeriod: Mother Nature is Calling!

     A friend of mine recently informed me of an application existing for the iPhone, which is geared specifically toward women and is entitled the iPeriod. Not the punctuation mark, mind you. Yep, we’re talking about full fledged menstruation-- a menstruation tracker, to be precise. This iPeriod product description explains its purpose:

     “Enter in the first day and last day of your period for  
     at least two consecutive cycles, and iPeriod
     calculates your average duration, cycle length and
     estimates the dates of your next expected periods. A
     must have for doctor’s appointments, event planning
     and estimating when to leave the house prepared!”

     I feel conflicted on this one.

Should Pregnant Celebrities Get Heat for Showing Their Buns in the Oven?

     More and more pregnant celebrities are posing nude on the covers of magazines. Intriguing or disturbing (or both)? See what has to say and then watch my response.
     Also, let’s give a little shout out, shall we? Everyone should go read "Musings from an Incorrectly Wired Brain" from my friend Julie (thanks again, Julie, for helping with this recording).

Top 20 "America's Next Top Model" Fights-- Possibilities for Feminism?

     So, you may have noticed that I did not get around to publishing a new blog entry last week. My apologies. I partially must blame it on being an overworked graduate student. However, I must also acknowledge that YouTube has been distracting me from my blogging duties.
     I recently discovered that Sasquii at YouTube has posted a series of the top 20 best fights in the history of America’s Next Top Model. Clearly, I would be a fool not to take an extensive break from my work to relive all of the Top Model drama, right?

"Skating with the Stars" Should Stay Young at Heart

     So, while I’m still not sold on this whole Skating with the Stars competition that will be airing on ABC later this month, there does seem to be one glimmer of hope on the horizon for squeezing some much needed entertainment from this sure to be train wreck of a program. Of course, I’m referring to Sean Young.

     For those you who don’t recognize the name (as if you’d recognize any of the D-list celebrities ABC has lined up for this season, maybe its only season), Sean Young is a screen actress who is best known for her performances in films such as Blade Runner, No Way Out, and Dune. Incidentally, I’ve seen none of those titles, but I remember her most as Jim Carrey’s transsexual boss in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective.
     She’s also, for lack of a better term, a freakin’ lunatic.
