Happy Halloween!

Fear, Itself

Dear Mary McDonnell,
Please Please Please Please Please don't fall into the  pile of sh*t that is Grey's Anatomy. This especially hurts when you've been apart of one of the best (most importantly best WRITTEN) shows of all-time BSG. Next time follow in the steps of Tahmoh Penikett and do a Joss project or something similarly awesome.  
Dear Grey's,
 (And by my people I mean Kevin McKidd and Mary)

Pie à la Mulan

OMG You cannot miss this week's episode of PUSHING DAISIES entitled "Dim Sum Lose Sum"!!! It was absolutely brilliant! And not only because a certain someone dons a full on Midnight Cowboy ensemble. But seriously watch out for Lee who managed to display every emotion under the sun. It was like watching one of those method acting warm-ups. Theatre kids you know what I'm talking about!

Damn Dirty Tote Bags!

Apparently Tote Bags are immune to drops in demand for consumer goods.  I've come to that conclusion because the movie gods at TCM just released a Limited Edition TCM Organic Tote Bag for 50 bucks PLUS shipping. 
I guess instead of paying for rent you can just live out of your tote bag. 
Damn that DVF Wonder Woman tote is starting to look like a downright steal.

Recession Rhymes with Possession for a Reason-Diane von Furstenberg is WONDER WOMAN

Mmm is 165$ a lot for a DVF Tote Bag??? 
I mean it is big enough to carry my Wednesday Goodies but it is in the end just a tote bag. No Invisible Jet included. Why oh why couldn't Diane have plastered Diana all over one of her iconic wrap dresses? See that would have been a wicked combo of Heroine Chic. Why don't these people consult me first? Oh yeah probably b/c I would keep it real about...well everything.  
Though it does make me hope that one day Tory Burch will do a Buffy-inspired collection. It would be a match made in heroine heaven! They're both perky blondes with plenty of spunk and enviable wardrobes. Plus-You can't beat that Ms.Burch's emblem is a cross. Poetic Justice. (If you don't get that reference then you need to catch up on your season 4 Buffy. Or at least with Janet)

Fashion Fray:The Blokes want to be like Bullitt (Nice Try!)

While I was doing my daily gander of Just Jared I couldn't help but notice all the guys (read:two) who were sporting cardigans. And not any of that fine-knit Mr.Rogers shit but full-on chunky Grandpa cardigans! Which leads me conclude that Sir Daniel and Sir Ed must be trying to channel their inner Steve McQueen via knitwear. Mr Craig even manages to pair his cardigan with a blue shirt just like McQueen. I guess those blue-eyed boys can never pass up a chance to bring out their eyes. For those who want to be supremely learned (which really is anyone who has stumbled upon my little piece of the blogsphere) please note that this is not the first time Sir Daniel has looked to McQueen for Style Inspiration.
Did you really think Daniel was the first to sport blue short shorts?!
*Thomas Crown vs. Blonde Bond*

BTW:We have Thomas Crown Affair ('68-Jason!) & Bullitt Costume Designer Theadora Van Runkle to eternally thank for putting together some eternally hot ensembles. Oh and she did the Beret, Trench, & Knit smorgasbord that is Bonnie & Clyde. The woman is the Darkchild of 60's costume design-a criminally underrated genius!

On a related Men-in-Knitwear note: I know that I'm not the only one that got lightheaded when Eric Mabius was wearing a cardigan on this week's Ugly Betty. If I didn't love the magnificently brilliant dialogue I would totally just mute it and enjoy Mr.Mabius's valuable contribution to our world silently.

"I Got Your Crazy"

Sorry for the lack of posts but I seriously can't get over WOMANIZER. I forsee in the future Britney replacing the Little Engine in The Little Train Wreck the Could.
Seriously the girl is releasing the best material of her career after her PopChernobyl. On the otherhand Beyonce hasn't gone through 1/99th of the crazy Brit's been through and she still hasn't released anything Pop worthy since "Me Myself and I". And that first? single Like A Boy is more Like A Bore (Oh and it's a poor jab at Pop Colony fave Ciara).

I have joined the world of the Living!!! [Hi-Def Edition]

I gave into a moment of temptation and bought a Blu-Ray player. And by temptation I mean that Future Shop had a Free IRON MAN Blu-Ray w/Purchase promo going on. Damn Clinique has made me a slave to the Gift with Purchase! Well getting to see Robert Downey Jr. in 1080P glory is definitely a Gift in it of itself. 

BONUS: I also picked up BULLITT. What can I say? I can't pass up a fantastic classic remastered. Plus you never pass up eternal hottie Steve McQueen. Ms.Sheryl wouldn't stand for it!

Missing "Next Big Thing" found in 1973

Life on Mars is about a modern day cop who finds himself suddenly in 1973. And guess what he finds in 1973 (well other than a ton of synthetic fabric)? GRETCHEN MOL! This has to be the biggest discovery since they reanimated Teri Hatcher's corpse for Desperate Housewives. 

And because you value my opinion so much-
I thought the premiere was pretty good. I am actually going to go as far as saying that it was by far the best new premiere this season. Unfortunately that's not really saying much. Though I am going to give kudos to the writers/producers for having a scene where you actually believe a cop is going to bust a cap in a kid for the sake of future humanity. I also will give a high five to Jason O'Mara for being hot in a Less-Ginger-than-Kevin McKidd way. Plus who doesn't love Pre-Gentrification New York? 
Though I really wish they would have changed the name of the show because most Americans do not have a working knowledge of David Bowie's discography. Brits do. It's part of their birthright along with an affinity for manpris.
