The Following Takes Place Between 5:00 P.M. and 6:00 P.M.

  1. Looks like Sean isn’t the only one who’s working for Dubaku (or Burnett); Erika’s in on it too and freaking out.
  2. Renee is getting emotional about Marika’s impending fate. But! It looks like Dubaku actually was in love with Marika and he still wants her to come to Bolivia with him (she agrees). He tells her that he’s not like the other people involved and that Burnett is a very corrupt man. Nice (more…)

The Following Takes Place Between 3:00 P.M. And 4:00 P.M.

I’m not sure the previous format was working too well and I doubt anyone was actually reading it, so I present to you:

24 Things We Learned About 24 This Week:

  1. No one in the general public of Washington D.C. recognizes Dubaku.  You’d think his picture might have come up at least once on the news. (more…)

Now this is a story all about how
one farmer‘s world got flipped upside down
Ten women from the city came into his life
And one may get lucky, ’cause this Farmer Wants A Wife

Portage-Des-Sioux, Missouri is where the show’s set
Last week they had a hoe-down, the most painful thing yet
After pickin ears of corn out in some guy’s field
Brooke was sittin’ pretty thanks to her yield

When a couple of Bible Gals seemed up to no good
Started doin’ stripper moves on the dancin’ wood
Stacey’s cups flowed over but her Mason Jar was dry
and now you’re caught up on Farmer Wants a Wife

With that out of my system, join me after the jump for this week’s installment of tears, beers, and a very special episode of Farmer Wants A Wife where Matt says “Out here in the country, everyone helps everyone” for the one hundredth time. Balloons optional.

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.

All Roads Lead to DeadOn – Top Posts for March ’07 Monday, April 2, 2007

We celebrate two things here at DeadOn. a) the faults of others and b) the success of ourselves. While most of what we do falls under the former, today’s post is celebrating the latter, specifically the top 5 postings for the month of March.

5) The Day the Music Died…
Tied to the 90’s – Rock Songs That Were Killed by Being Overplayed came in as the 5th most viewed post this month. Yostal’s list of songs somehow managed to construct a vivid auditory flashback to the 1990’s. Who here doesn’t remember getting/giving a toothy blowjob while “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” played softly on the radio of the minivan? Ok, maybe I’m alone here.

Guilty Pleasures: Soundtracks to bad movies from the mid-90’s Wednesday, March 7, 2007

Let’s face it – the compilation movie soundtrack is a bit of a cop-out when it comes to buying music. Flying in the face of the concept of the coherent album, the movie soundtrack (the compilation variety, mind you, not the Morricone or Vangelis type) is usually little more than an amalgam of songs that may or may not be played during the movie for more than a few seconds each. When you buy a soundtrack, you’re usually just submitting yourself to the director’s musical tastes or placing yourself at the mercy of a record label exec with the word ‘synergy’ tattooed over the part of the frontal lobe normally responsible for conscience.

And yet, by my estimate, I own at least 30 compilation soundtracks, and probably another 15 instrumental ones.

So there are in fact two sources of guilt to this post (double the guilt, double the fun, right?).

First is the fact that I like some of these compilation soundtracks more than the CDs by the artists found on the soundtrack.

Second, although some (though not all) of the movies I’ll discuss were utterly craptacular, they could also be considered guilty pleasures.

Enough of the movies, I’ll warrant, are probably beloved by various DeadOn readers, something I’ll argue is largely in part due to the soundtracks, so I’m looking forward to some lively invectives in the comments. Don’t disappoint me.

Join me after the break for guilt and cookies.

Okay, maybe just guilt.

Aside from links from popular sports blogs, word of mouth and individuals stalking our female contributors, how do people find their way to DeadOn? In this weekly feature (future installments will post on Monday mornings), I’ll cover the most random and most amusing search strings that led people to our little corner of the eBays.

Here at DeadOn, we see it as our duty not only to tell you what’s going on right now in the world of entertainment and pop culture, but also to draw your attention to past movies or music which you may not have seen, or may not even have heard of. In this occasional column, your DeadOn contributors will be reviewing their favorite movies that never garnered much attention in the United States or were simply underrated, unappreciated and/or forgotten.

Trust us when we say that these films are well worth the effort; not because you might be able to feel artsy and be pretentious dicks to your friends (if you want to be a dick, these films may be of use to you too, somehow), but because they are truly some of the most entertaining, interesting, and thought-provoking pieces of cinema out there.

We’ll start with what I consider one of the funniest, most sensual movies ever made – the 1985 Japanese film “Tampopo.”

Leaving in a Lexus: The OC Series Finale Friday, February 23, 2007

Last night was it, the series finale of The OC, after four seasons, three school districts, two ridiculously understanding parents, and one unchanging expression on the face of Ryan Atwood. Watching the final episode was like watching competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi plow through a stack of hot dogs. You can’t believe how much shit is getting crammed in there and you have no idea where it’s all going to go. To help me make sense of it, I enlisted the help of The Fan’s Attic. So grab a hot dog and get in the U-Haul, because we’re all leaving Newport together.

The show begins with a title card reading “Six Months Later”. The entire Cohen family is now living with Raging Whore Julie Cooper and I hope they know better than to put the blankets near their faces. It’s the day before the Raging Whore’s wedding to–surprise–The Bullet because apparently her other boyfriend Kevin Sorbo as Hercules as Frank Atwood could prevent Zeus from smiting her but couldn’t do anything about the itching and burning.

OC You Next Thursday Friday, February 16, 2007

I’ve always been a fan of The OC, a Fox offering that started as a hipper, more self-aware version of Beverly Hills 90210, the Puma to their K-Swiss. I loved it because the scripts were fresh, the pop-culture references fresher, and the viewer always got the feeling that the characters, despite their tribulations, were in on the joke. Honestly, it’s hard for me to resist any show where twenty-somethings play high school students, probably because I’m from West Virginia, where if you’re twenty-five and still in high school you obviously had a tutor.  

But The OC is down to its final two episodes and based on the one that aired last night they’re continuing this season’s prevailing theme, “Fuck It, We’ve Been Cancelled.” What started as a revisionist dramedy about overprivileged white kids in southern California has turned into a quite possibly THC-induced free-for-all where recent episodes have included a film about an inflatable orca, clown porn, and most disturbingly, Kevin Sorbo.  I’m sure that Luke Perry is pinwheeling in his grave.     (more…)
