Super Skank Wednesday: Charm School for the men of I Love New York

by Kristin Sample, posted Sep 10th 2008 12:43PM
UnsureWelcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

So no I Love Money on Sunday night? Wha-what? Pshaw! How can I do my awesome picture books without a new episode?

Okay enough complaining. After the jump, I'm going to discuss a show that doesn't exist (yet) in the VH1 skanktastic line-up: Charm School: The Men of I Love New York. I've got a list of my fantasy cast.

12 Pack gets eliminated by Toastee.Welcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

This Wednesday let's do another picture book fairy tale. I'm learning a lot from I Love Money. How about you? After the jump, I have a piece I call "12 Pack's Destruction, A Tale of Hubris." I'm not a betting woman, but I don't think anyone on ILM knows what the term "hubris" means.

Rodeo and her bedazzled bandanaWelcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

Today we'll talk about Rodeo who got eliminated from I Love Money this past Sunday. The name. The guns. The bandanas she customized with a Bedazzler. The barbeque sauce.

I'm sad she got kicked off. She certainly could have used that money for some psychiatric evaluations. Let's talk about her demise after the jump. I'm doing another picture book.

Super Skank Wednesday: 12 Pack's master plan, a quaint children's tale

Mr. Boston whimpersWelcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

After Sunday night's episode, I am reminded of the classic line from Steinbeck's novel, "The best laid plans of mice and men are often effed up by blondes with huge fake boobs and nasal voices." Or something like that. Or maybe it was from the Robert Burns' poem. But enough of this talk about low brow things like famous novels or poems. Let's get to I Love Money.

Hoopz is on I Love Money
Welcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

There's been a lull in trashtastic programming lately. I'm stuck watching So You Think You Can Dance (some of the those Latin ballroom costumes are a little slutty) and Secret Diary of a Call Girl (scripted skankiness). I long for VH1 to start their summer of skanktacity. We got a little taste last night with the I Love Money casting special. Check out my review after the jump.

VH1 announces cast of summer show

Megan Hauserman, one of the stars of I Love Money
Earlier this week I reported that VH1 was adding to its already awesomely skanky line-up. (I told you that was Megan Hausermann with the question mark on her face!) Throughout the week, the network has been announcing the cast of I Love Money, a competition show that will take all-stars from your favorite VH1 shows and let them compete for cold hard cash. The show premieres in July so that means this summer ... just. got. better.

After the jump, I've got the cast and some predictions. You can check out VH1.com for full galleries of the cast members.

Five television networks' streaming compared

by Brett Love, posted Sep 15th 2007 7:00PM

ABC Web Player - Lost
As we all get ready to dive into fresh new seasons of our favorite shows, it's worth taking a look at the streaming options available from the networks. In this day and age of Tivo, DVRs, PVRs, and holdouts like myself that still have functioning VCRs, there's no reason to actually miss an episode. However, in the event that the cable company bungles your service at a quarter to 8, or the power goes out, or you just totally drop the ball, it's nice knowing that the streaming option is available for an increasing number of shows.

How celebrities keep it "real"

by Paul Goebel, posted Mar 2nd 2007 11:02AM

There has been a lot of talk lately about the legitimacy of certain body parts amongst celebrities. Tyra Banks, for example, has spent a lot of time informing men and women alike that her breasts are, in fact, real. Recently, she even extended her breast authentication abilities to her guest Katherine McPhee. Once the exam was over, it was determined that Katherine, like Tyra, has not had breast augmentation surgery.

Well, aside from being highly aroused, I was incredibly relieved. It's nice to see that in this day and age some people still know that real beauty comes from within.

But it got me thinking, what about other celebrities and their body parts? If these women can verify their actual anatomy shouldn't everyone on TV prove that they are real as well?

Nightmares and Dreamscapes: Umney's Last Case

umney's last case(S01E03) Writers are the most shameless, self-centered bastards in the world. We lie, we seduce, we'll steal your soul. Anything to look good on the page. -Sam Landry

I thought I had read every story from Nightmares and Dreamscapes, and I might have, but nothing about "Umney's Last Case" was familiar when I read it just recently. Nevertheless, it's not a bad story, and it's also very "meta" as the college kids like to say.

In the story, as in the TV adaptation, we begin in the 1930s where a grizzled private eye named Clyde Umney is leading a storybook life that he'll soon learn is more "storybook" than he realizes. He wields snappy dialogue with the precision of a trapeze artist, and always knows just what to say to get what he wants, at one point managing to turn two women to jelly in his office one after the other.

homicideSo you say you're a fan of the series Homicide: Life on the Street and you've got about three hundred dollars sitting around you don't know what to do with? Well A&E must have heard your plea, because on November 14 they're releasing the entire series in one gigantic DVD set, and it'll retail for $299.95. That's 35 discs with 122 original episodes, the original Homicide movie, and three crossover episodes of Law and Order (the crossovers were not included in original DVD releases of Homicide). TV Shows on DVD has all the information on the new set, which comes in a lovely little "file cabinet" package. The series, which was partly based on the book Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets by David Simon, aired from 1993 to 1999.
