Our show, which has sent many a psychoanalyist into a Freudian-tizzy about Oedipus complexes, is coming to a wrap with the Final Decisions. Will the Boys act like Men or will they give in to their mother’s wishes? And what stunt will Mrs. B pull out this time? Find out… after the jump.

After an episode in which JoJo’s mom Mrs.B took helicopter parenting to a whole new level, each Boy is off to the Virgin Islands with his Momma and his top three girls (well, save for JoJo, since his Momma said no girl was good enough – he only gets two).

This week, NBC’s Promo Guy has hinted Erica will tell of her sordid past, Mrs.B will call it hell, and every mother will tell her son he is making a terrible choice. How will the son’s respond? Learn – after the jump…

It is a train-wreck of a dating show, complete with stereotypes and oddball challenges. Sounds like it is right up my alley!

Join me after the jump for a review of Momma’s Boys, where three single guys – and their mothers – attempt to find them love, all while embarrassing themselves in front of the cameras. (more…)

Despite my spot on this cutting edge page of pop culture and witticism, it is true, I have not always been on the forefront.  I’ll pause for that to sink in, then tell the tale of the time I went eletronica-lite.

I am not a believer in the purchasing of holiday music. You only listen to it for six weeks, and there are enough radio stations which either go heavy on the holiday music or switch formats entirely. If you need to hear Jingle Bell Rock, chances are you are going to be covered.

My fondness for Garth Brooks has previously been cataloged in this very column. But it was not the first time he got me… (more…)

There seems to be a recurring theme here – single dominates the radio, I buy a CD, listen to the rest of it, bury it in the Big Black Book of CDs, and never ponder it again.

Rewind, repeat, with a mambo flair… after the jump.

Seeing all the horror movie commercials over the last few weeks, I saw a few for the 2006 remake of The Omen, starring Julia Stiles, which provided the inspiration over this week’s review.

After an extended hiatus for reformatting – unlike a TV hiatus, no one was recast during the down time – a look back at fiscally unsound music purchases has returned.

This week, I pull a disc from the bag of guy tricks – which everyone knows anyway. Learn it after the jump.

If there was a FAIL! entry for poor music decisions, this would earn an entry – for both the producer and the purchaser.

Consider, for a moment, the talent on the Mickey Mouse Club in the 1990s – Justin Timberlake, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and JC Chavez. That’s not to mention Keri Russell (swoon) and Ryan Gosling. So how could an album put out by the MMC go awry?

Sometimes, having owned and enjoyed an artist’s previous seven studio albums, a greatest hits disc, a live cd, a box set and a holiday cd will convince you that purchasing of the next album is a good idea.

Sometimes, that loyalty is rewarded (everything by U2, for example). Sometimes, that loyalty is not rewarded, and not just in a “That wasn’t quite as good as the last album way”. Join me after the jump for one of, if not THE, greatest musical flops of my lifetime.

Which of course, I owned.

The newest feature to DeadOn’s Music Commentary, this is “I Spent Money On This?”, taking a self-deprecating look at my numerous bad musical purchases.
