Real World Recap – Why is Isaac So Awesome? Thursday, December 27, 2007

Many of my recaps have focused on why Dunbar is such a huge douchebag. He still is, but several commenters have noted that Isaac is also quite possibly the coolest cat to ever appear on the Real World. Why? Well, follow me after the jump for an example of the awesomeness that is Isaac.

Merry day after Christmas! Hope you got all the toys from Santa that you wanted and that your holiday season was great! Now, it’s time to get back to business. Last week we began the countdown of YMR’s favorite albums from 2007. Today, we reach the disappointing climax. Huzzah! So, let’s wait no longer and get to the jump!

Real World Recap – Dunbar is a Douchebag of Mammoth Proportions. Friday, December 21, 2007

This episode opens with all of the roommates sitting in the kitchen, with Dunbar bitching about how Parissa has broken the coffee machine because she drinks too much coffee (yes, God forbid someone use the machine for its intended purpose). Ashli responds with the underwhelming comment that Dunbar is “being stupid” (gee, you think?). Follow me after the jump to see just how far his stupidity extends.

My Charlie Brown Christmas Friday, December 21, 2007

So I’m 100% sure without looking it up that there was no Scrubs on last night. The whole week so far NBC has been showing that “Choir” shit and I’d bet $1000 they did that last night as well. And considering that the show is going to be a repeat next week (a replay of the season premiere) and probably the first week of the new year, there won’t be any recaps for a while. And to be honest, depending on how long the writers’ strike go on, I don’t know how many more recaps they’ll be this television season. The show had filmed 12 of their last 18 (or 19 depending on which site you go look on) when the strike started and we’re already up to six. So there will be definitely be six more, but after that…who knows.

Anyway, depressing news about t.v. over, here is a special Scrubs video for you. I first saw this over the summer and Metsy showed it to me again few weeks ago. It’s the cast of Scrubs doing a Charlie Brown Christmas. And it’s really good, but I must warn you that it’s a bit long, around 10 minutes. And it was done during Christmas 2003. But who cares? It’s still good.

So Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you out there. I’ll see y’all in the new year.

Your Morning Rock In Review – Five….Four…. Friday, December 21, 2007

I hope that the countdown has been as entertaining for you to read as it has been for me to write thus far. Today, we hit the last two entries before we crack the Top 3 next Wednesday. Numbers Five and Four for 2007 are both pretty downbeat entries, but they’ve stuck with me throughout the year.

Let’s hit the jump to see what the day holds…

Tied to the 90s: Yostal’s 10 Best Songs of “2007” Thursday, December 20, 2007

Tied to the 90s

Welcome back to “Tied to the 90s“, a not-very complete guide to a decade that was. I’m your host, Yostal, and once more, I’ll be taking you through the pop culture landscape of the 1990s. If you have any suggestions for future columns, please email me at GoinYostal@gmail.com or leave me a comment.

Today, I’ll be looking at the 10 best songs of 2007. Or I should say “The 10 Best Songs I Added to my iTunes Library in 2007”. Between writing Tied to the 90s for a good part of the year, the development of Seeqpod, and getting Sirius in my car and listening to Lithium 24 pretty much non-stop, I have added a large amount of music to my iTunes this past year (grand total: 650 songs). So I thought as a “nostalgia columnist” it wouldn’t be right for me to talk about the current music, especially as I don’t know what the hell I would be talking about. So instead, you get a wide-ranging look at what I was listening to in 2007. Some of this may trod upon ground covered earlier this year, but that said, here we go again…

The end is near my friends, after today, we’re half way through the Your Morning Rock year in review and I’m realizing how many fantastic albums I’ll be leaving out on this countdown. So, let’s continue to fun of another arbitrary blog list and get a move on with numbers seven and six.

With less than two weeks to go in the year, the time has come for YMR to start reminiscing over the year that was 2007. We were here for most of it, having launched in February, so I think we’ve got a decent grasp on this thing. Naturally, you are expected to hate every selection and question every pick I make. I would have it no other way.

Today, we begin the Top Ten….right after the jump….

Your Morning Rock In Review – Just Outside The Top 10 Tuesday, December 18, 2007

With less than two weeks to go in the year, it’s about time YMR starting reminiscing over the year that was 2007. We were here for most of it, having launched in February, so I think we’ve got a decent grasp on this thing. So here is the plot for recapping the year of rock. This week will be all about the almost but not quite. It’s still what I consider to have been my amongst my favorites from the year, but they fell just outside my own Top 3. My 3 favorite albums of the year will start popping out the day after Christmas (you didn’t think we’d be here on the 24th and 25th did you?) and will take you through the end of next week.

Today, a couple more albums that fall just outside of my personal Top 10…Let’s hit the jump

Jack is in his office when Liz comes up to wish him a merry Christmas before they break for the holidays. Jack is appreciative and offers Liz a gift, one of the new GE photo scanner/paper shredders. Liz worries that people will just end up shredding their photos, but jack assures her it’s very easy to use. You just flip the toggle to PS when you want the photo scanner and when you want the paper shredder, flip it over to…PS. (more…)

Real World Recap – Dunbar Locks Up the Douchebag of the Year Award. Friday, December 14, 2007

This episode opens at night with a shot of Ashli sleeping in her bed. We see Dunbar come in and jump into bed with her (trust, that sequence is important). Cut to Ashli in the confessional – “He would do anything he wanted if he knew that Julie wouldn’t find out.” We then see Isaac and Dunbar talking (presumably, either Dunbar got out of bed or this is poor sequential editing. I vote for option B), and Isaac asks Dunbar “Why does every girl in this house want to bang you?” Failing to detect the sarcasm, Dunbar replies “Because I have a girlfriend.” Follow me after the jump to experience Dunbar in all of his douchebaggery.

DeadOn Holiday Advent Calendar Friday, December 14, 2007

holly - christmassy shitEvery week, leading up to Jebus’ birthday, I am going to be pulling a couple choice lines out of a long-lost DeadOn Liveblog that never saw the light of day. The game is simple… After the post each week, post your guesses as to what the movie is that we liveblogged.

We had some good guesses last week, but nothing correct. So here are another 5 lines from the liveblog to help narrow down the movie.

Jukeboxhero: Not Kobra Kai material

Andrea: I like it when it hurts a little

Jerkwheat: how do you watch my sex tape? I filmed it in b&w to make it seem classier?

LidleFlightClass: like seriously though. Man Who to Fell Earth. David Bowie bites a girl in the ass while having sex with her

CDNMoose: The disfigured men of NAMBLA loved this movie

I think this is probably the last week to make guesses, and I’ll post the actual liveblog sometime next week. So have at it and try to crack the puzzle!

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome back to my season’s worth of recaps for How I Met Your Mother. Welcome, once more, to Urban HIMYMs.

Wait a minute, just when I thought I was done, they pull me back in. Not that I mind, it’s like a three chambered peanut, it’s an unexpected surprise. It’s just thrown my schedule off a bit is all.

And away we go… (more…)

Jack and CC rendezvous in his office. She’s worried someone will see them, but Jack reassures her that it’s too early for the creative types and he sent Jonathan to a non-existant Italian bakery in Queens. Cut to a panicked Jonathan begging auto mechanics for baked goods. They start to make out, just in time for Liz to stumble upon them. Caught, Jack introduces CC as a business associate, “Laquisha Gutierrez…Arafat.” Liz says she’ll leave them to it. CC: “‘It’ being business.” Liz: “Right. I call the movie Risky BusinessRisky It‘, because ‘it’ means ‘business’. Lemon out…”

YMR’s All-Star tribute to Portland continues, although I’m taking a step away from the infamous Slate piece today to share the fantasticness of yesterday’s request from our dear friend, Greek McPapadopoulos. Enjoy!

Oh, and New Music Tuesday will resume in a few weeks on a regular basis – when there are albums that I feel like discussing again. Although there is new Wu Tang out today, and Wu Tang will always be for the children.

YMR is on the road this week – reporting live from the Pacific Northwest hamlet of Portland, Oregon. Ok, so in actuality, YMR is still coming to you from the homebase in DC until Wednesday..but that’s just a technicality.  In honor of this momentous voyage to the left coast, I’m going to provide a week of YMR using nothing but bands and artists mentioned in this Slate piece. Let’s get to it.
