After a long, long time away (including, evidently, two episodes my DVR didn’t get), everyone’s favorite zip code is reopened for business in episode 17, “Life’s a Drag”.

This week, Naomi tries to snake her way into new guy Liam’s life, Silver gets carried away with looooooooove, and Hip Teacher Ryan finds himself in another awkward spot. Or so the previews would lead us to believe. Let’s see, shall we? (more…)

Last week, the return of 90210 had teen pregnancy, theft, illegitimate children who were not actually legitimate children, and the promise of someone passing out in chemistry class, making West Beverly High very similar to rural Iowa. This week, secrets will be revealed and boyfriends get mad when their girlfriends are knocked up by someone else… also similar to rural Iowa. And everywhere else in the world.

After returning to Everyone’s Favorite Zip Code (Copyright, All Rights Reserved by The CW’s Evilly Deceptive Promo Guy) in September, we’ve been away for about a month. A re-return post-holidays should find a new wave of drama, right?

Let’s address this right away:

  • Yes, I am a man.
  • Yes, in the spirit of Mike Gundy, I am 31 years old.
  • Yes, I am straight.
  • Yes, I am addicted to the shows of the WB… er, the CW.

The big new show for the CW this season is 90210, touted as a return to everyone’s favorite zip code. I kept meaning to start this in the fall, but schedule conflicts prevented it. With those cleared, and the show returning on Tuesday, let’s get up to speed.

Last week we said goodbye to Chikeze, even though he certainly didn’t deserve it. But, I think we all knew he was gonna be gone in the coming weeks anyway, so what does it really matter? Once again, Kristy Lee should be our likely candidate for departure, but with it being Dolly Parton Week (?!?!) that may not be as likely as we wish. The usual gang joins me in our weekly pre-show discussion…after the jump (more…)

Well, that’s only partly true. Rap makes up only a small part of what I listen too, but I do have some favorites. One of those artists who I do pay attention to is Jurassic 5, who I actually saw live when they were touring on Lollapalooza a couple of years ago. They put out two great albums (Quality Control and Power In Numbers), and one decent album (this past year’s Feedback), and well, that’s it. That’s because they’ve decided to call it quits.

Feel free to flame me for misusing the title of this space, I welcome thy retorts.

Come inside, and ye shall find news about The Smashing Pumpkins and the Number 7, Tobago = Tim Hardaway (but not Trinidad?), more infighting between the Dead Kennedys and Jello Biafra, Sonic Youth revisiting their Daydream past, Rodrigo Y Gabriela thwarted from taking er jerbs (I have no idea how to quite get the “South Park” accent), and many more.

My TiVo Hates Me Sunday, February 25, 2007

tivoI was originally going to call this “My Tivo Hates Me”. But now, in hindsight, I see that my Tivo is simply schitzophrenic and oscillates rapidly between thinking I’m a redneck, a housewife, and a MTV obsessed idiot.

A year ago, I noticed that Tivo wasn’t doing so hot with it’s recording suggestions. After some thought, I realized I was better off using it like a glorified VCR that only recorded the things I actually wanted. So I turned off the “Suggestions” feature. Fast forward to present day. I was thinking to myself that maybe that year of data collection made it a little more accurate, so I turn the “Suggestions” back on. And here are the results of this colossal mistake…..after the jump
