Real World Las Vegas Reunion – The Grass is ALWAYS Greener, Bitches Friday, June 29, 2007

Posted by The NY Kid in Fuck You Nibbles, MTV, reality TV, undergroundBTO.

This episode opens with the type of antics that everyone has been tuning in for – Frank getting drunk at a club, making a fool of himself, and making out with random, barely-attractive women. This is punctuated by Frank getting off another killer line – “If I never see you again, you have a great ass” (oh, the number of times I’ve heard that). Follow me after the jump for the rest of the comedic stylings.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, ch. 1-5 Friday, June 29, 2007

Order of the Phoenix opens with Dudley Demented.  It is a lazy, hazy hot summer day and Harry is lying in the flowerbed outside the living room window, hoping to hear the news.  He hasn’t been getting any information from anyone all summer, lest owls be intercepted, so he has resorted to eavesdropping on the Muggle nightly news.  Suddenly, there’s a loud crack and Harry sits up, banging his head on the window.  Vernon and Petunia look out the window and find Harry in the flowerbed, where they yell at him for wanting to hear the news.  He basically calls them stupid and storms off, wondering what that sound was because it sounded exactly like when Dobby disappears.

New Movie Releases – Weekend of 6/29/07 Friday, June 29, 2007

Or I shall mispronounce your movie a second time!

Ratatouille

Starring: Brad Garrett, Lou Romano, Patton Oswalt, RenderMan®

Pitch: We’ve tried everything we could think of at Pixar to make a character unlovable and nothing works. We’ve made them insects, inanimate objects, automobiles… I know! Let’s make them French! (Oh, and rats.)

Synopsis: Our rodent protagonist wants to become a head chef but isn’t rat-like enough to be Gordon Ramsay. He hooks up with an endearing loser of a biped to try to achieve greatness.

Target Market: Not you. You can stay home with your kids and play Jenga all night. You don’t need to worry your pretty little head about it. I’m sure you’d hate it.

Why You Should See This Movie: You shouldn’t. Really. There’s no need for you to disrupt my ability to enjoy seeing Ratatouille four straight times today with your rugrats and your popcorn cud-chewing and your breathing.

CBT – Back To The Music Thursday, June 28, 2007

Alright, so I’m taking a hiatus on the technical posts to give you a free music website again.

This one has came up a few times on the new releases column, but I thought it was worth a mention as a resource to be added to your list of places to look for new music.

Every week, AOL puts up full streaming albums of some of the major new releases. So you should never again have to ask “is that new Kelly Clarkson CD really worth buying?”

Punch, pie, and links after the jump…

The Most Cromulent Simpsons Episodes of All-Time: #6(ish) Thursday, June 28, 2007

Hey, gang,

Mondo apologies, but this week’s entry has been delayed, unless the Sony stooge restoring my laptop as we speak figures out how to post to WordPress from a DOS prompt.

I don’t even have anything to leave you in it’s stead, other than to give you a hint as to what the episode is…

Hmmmm….Too many easy clues. Way too many…

Here are a few things in the episode: Captain McAllister, divorcees, two guest voices from sitcoms from back in the day and, of course, flour. I’m sure at least one of y’all can figure it out.

See you later tonight, or as soon as the tech has casted Level 5 Resurrection on my supposed wonder of technology.

Yes, yes, I know…

Flesh, Blood and Bone sees Harry and Cedric land in a graveyard. Neither one of them knew the cup was going to be a portkey. They reckon they better keep their wands at the ready. Suddenly, a hooded figure holding a bundle of robes like a baby comes towards them. Harry’s scar explodes with pain, a cold voice says, “Kill the spare” and suddenly the killing curse rings out and Cedric flops to the ground, dead. (more…)

Sweet mother of God! It’s been a loooooong time since we last spoke. Much Schrutery has gone on since then and I may have to give a lifetime achievement award to Paris for managing to get out of jail after two days before an amazingly cromulent judge sent her right back. Glorious. But now, she is free again. Hide your trashy gossip rags and lets get to the jump.

As the summer movie season rolls along, we here at DeadOn are committed to giving our readers critical, well-thought analysis (well, it’s analysis at least) because we don’t want you to waste your hard-earned money on bad movies, long lines and spending time with inordinate amounts of teenagers. That and we can’t get enough of seeing our own words in the blogosphere. We are bound and determined to be the eyes and ears for our readers…. Well, at least the eyes and ears for the 85 other writers on this website, who account for most of our readers.

The big movie this week is Evan Almighty starring Steve Carrell and everybody’s favorite movie narrator, Morgan Freeman.  Evan is the sequel to the delightfully funny Bruce Almighty starring Jim Carrey and everybody’s favorite narrator.  You probably know the story, God, Morgan Freeman, wants [blank person] to do something for him or fill in for him or something like that and hilarity ensues. So, without further ado….

When last we met, Susie and Aneesa were bemoaning their fate of having to enter the last Inferno before the final challenge. This episode opens with more of the same, as we see Susie moping about looking all forlorn (what? I can use the thesaurus!). Abram decides to brighten her mood by grabbing her and throwing her in the pool. Suprisingly, this upsets Susie and she runs into the bathroom to cry and tell Cara that everyone picks on her. Join me after the jump for the rest of the comedy.

In The Madness of Mr. Crouch, the Trio go visit the kitchen again to get food to send to Sirius.  Winky is still all drunk and dirty, pining away for the Crouches.  She says she kept his secrets and now he has no one to take care of him. 

The next day, Hermione begins getting hate mail at breakfast.  People read the Rita Skeeter article and decided she was a harlot who was playing with Harry’s affections.  She runs off to the hospital wing to get treated for a letter that had bubotuber pus inside. (more…)

Rita Skeeter’s Scoop dawns with Boxing Day and Ron and Hermione being civil and oddly formal towards each other.  Harry is starting to worry about his egg clue because the 2nd task looks a lot closer on this side of Christmas.  Once classes are back on, the Trio head down for Care of Magical Creatures class but it is being taught by Professor Grubbly-Plank instead of Hagrid.  They find out it’s because Rita Skeeter published an article in the Daily Prophet about how Hagrid is half-giant and probably very dangerous.  The kids can’t figure out how Rita Skeeter could’ve gotten inside the grounds to overhear Hagrid’s conversation with Madame Maxime the night of the Yule Ball.

The First Task begins with Harry telling Hermione about Sirius’s warnings about Karkaroff and Hagrid revealing the dragons to him. She says they should worry about dragons first, Karkaroff second. They hit the library, scouring books for spells that might help Harry get past a dragon, but are driven back to their dorm when Krum slouches by, followed by his gaggle of girls.

Monday morning, Harry sees Cedric leaving the Great Hall after breakfast and decides he needs to tell him what the first task is, seeing as how the other 3 champions all know ahead of time. Harry uses a spell to break Cedric’s bag strap, so he can help him pick up his things and tell him the first task is dragons. Cedric is a little suspicious that Harry decided to tell him, but he accepts it. Moody comes along and wants to talk to Harry, saying that his telling Cedric was a very decent thing to do. (more…)

This episode starts where the last one left off, with Trishelle talking to Arissa about the mess in the house. Arissa says that she refuses to be in a place where “such violence is going on”, and Trishelle agrees with her while secretly thinking that Arissa is over-reacting. Join me after the jump for the rest of the foolishness.

The Goblet of Fire chapter starts off with all the kids going inside for the welcome feast. Everybody is freaking out about Krum being there. Ron wants him to sit at the Gryffindor table and says he could sleep in his bed and Ron could take a cot or something. It’s hilarious. Hermione is unimpressed.

The feast is extra special, including foods that Hogwarts doesn’t usually have, like bouillabaisse. A really pretty girl from Beauxbatons comes over from the Ravenclaw table to borrow the one in front of Ron and Harry, and Ron practically drools on himself. Harry says they make the girls okay at Hogwarts too, though, looking over at Cho Chang. Woo woo. (more…)
