I Am Now An F, and Some TV Reviews

So I got cocky. I Blog Battled again yesterday (only one time) and somehow, my dear little blog LOST. How can that be??? So I went quickly from an A+ down to an F (100% to 50%) in a matter of moments. Bah. Now I have to keep playing to get my score back up. Youse people don't know who you are dealin wit! Jersey's in the hiz-zouse, I'm comin at ya!

Did you watch Hit Me Baby One More Time last night? Last week it was kinda funny; this week was just downright sad. Eek, to hear The Knack butcher Jet, and Tommy Tutone massacre poor Blink 182...and WTF was Vanilla Ice thinking when he said he was going to do Survivor by Destiny's Child - I mean, it wasn't the same music or lyrics. I think I saw him do a few Beyonce booty-shakes there, but it wasn't the same song! I guess I concede that he was the best of the bunch, although I am a huge Motels fan from back in the day and I thought Only The Lonely was good...and I thought the way she redid Nora Jones at least took some guts, to turn it into a rock song...although it didn't sound so great. Bah. I don't know why I keep watching this show because it just makes me feel old when I see these bands that I used to listen to (ok, I was in grade school when most of them were out, but still...) and how old and bloated they look and how horribly wrong their voices have gone.

And on a final note, I missed the first few minutes of HMBOMT because I was watching that godawful "The Cut" ith Tommy Hilfiger. Ya know how The Apprentice has "You're Fired" and Survivor has "The Tribe Has Spoken"? Well get this: the tag line for this show (about trying to break into the fashion world) is: "You Are Out Of Style. You Must Walk Off The Runway." Good Lord, that is cheesiness at its cheesiest.

Ok, I am off for some more battles.

trine said...

that is a BAD Catchphrase. actually, ti's not a catchphrase at all is it, it's just crap.
anyway, I actually remember vanilla ice as one of my friends really loved him, then DENIED it some months later, but of course the damage was done. she went on a serious madonna-loving-rant after that to try and save her image... too late, love.

;-)
ps. Helene will be 2 in july true...

I am depressed I missed Vanilla Ice. When I saw him perform in 2000 he slapped me five and I considered never washing my hand again, but he was looking quite grungy and gross that night I was afraid of the germs I may have contracted...but regardless I still love me some Ice Ice Baby

Next time you battle, let me know - I'll vote for you as often as they'll let me!

I've had it up to here with that reality crap. How can there possibly be so many dead-ass boring people in the world. It depressess the hell out of me.

And in my next life I'll learn to spell and punctuate. Or at least proofread my work first...

What is this blog battle you speak of?

K Jones said...

Jersey Girl,
I, too, suffered through about 3 minutes of "The Cut" and I have to say that Tommy Hilfiger makes Donald Trump look like a total superstar. I have never been so underimpressed with a celebrity. Why did they think this would work?

Lassa said...

I keep missing that show... but I did see a funky one the other night where they had Evander Holyfield in a dance competition! The things that keep us Americans entertained.

And thanks True for adding me to your blogroll!

Marie said...

That sucks! I'm sure you'll win more battles though. ;) I'm unfamilar with these blog wars or whatever they're called, so I'll check it out.

I was going to write about "The Cut" today. I watched the whole thing, don't ask me why, and when Tommy said, "You're out of style!!" I laughed my ass off. Are you kidding me??? What Brain surgeon came up with that one!!!!

Hey, from a fellow Jersey girl (although I don't live in NJ anymore - I do prove the saying you can take the girl out of NJ ... on a regular basis
