  1. I'm pretty sure it has been well used in modern advertising by the likes of Fridays and Chilijs well before follower of dying out trends Applebies started using it. But no offense I was not quibbling about the provenance. Something hardly has to be new to irk the heck of me. Nazis still make me mad. So do any Romans still wanting to rape any Sabine women that might still be around. It simply was part of the discussion about Applebies ads that annoy me. In fact it could be in translated cunieform from the ambassador to the Egyptian court relating the cocktails and nibblers hour at Nefert
  2. I think she is spending some serious bucks on stylists with her return. She does look good. But even more, and the compliment is in here, she has had more filler and tweaked changed faces this season than Patti Stanger does on an episode of her show. Every single shift in time she has some new slant to her eyes or cheeks, And the kicker is? Her hair and makeup for the most part (her face in her later talking heads is a bit too Katherine Helman in Brazil) is on point with each change! I never knew someone could so perfectly match every jab with her wardrobe. Cheeks plumped and she gets t
  3. No horror movie logic would first have them separate. And then one of them would take a shower.
  4. I think they should just call it "Bringing Back Batman Because We Didn't Relaunch Superman As We Wanted: But Shhh! Don't Tell Anyone!" There was a famous author who wrote an essay on why Superman works and why he doesn't. It was a bit dated but it did bring up the interesting aspect of Superman not only being human looking but also being attractive -- women wanting him, men wanting to be him. It was something with the casting of Cavill I really hoped they would explore. And I think they were stupid to cast Eisenberg. Luthor is the dark side of seduction (no pun intended). Superman
  5. Wait. What translation do you have. I read the entire thing for a class in college and don't recall any "and thou shall take it up thy ass" anywhere!!!! Was it some loose translation of a Psalms maybe? "And he shall know her and lay in her valley....and by her valley I mean her ass".
  6. And not that she married him for his money but he was somewhat successful when they met (as a comic who had regular tv guest gigs etc. in the stand up I saw he did a bit about how he did standard clean comedy and cashed in when the rest were trying to find their level of dirty niches -- that secondary voice thing he did on what was dirty was hilarious). I mean its not like he is some driver for a fake knockoff of UPS or anything.
  7. Yeah I'm not understanding that one either. "Hmm not a fan of their pizza, wait they added small over processed hot dogs and a dipping sauce, fuck that I'm in" I have never once been in the mood for delivery/take out pizza and halfway through my first slice got a jonesing for some Oscar Meyer. At some point I think Fast Food ads should have to have an accompanying PSA: In light of the legalization of marijuana in some states and the general easement of judicial retribution in others, we would like you to consider this following ad. For those of you without a drug enhanced palate, feel
  8. For me at least partof the problem is I think the segues probably are meant to make sense, But I think they are written for her and she just reads them with no understanding or caring of the matter. So her inflection and timing can be off and makes a jumble of where the pun or entendre is suppose to be. I know there is one where she clearly read the wrong word. Not like Beer instead of Deer but something that was part of another segment and I remember as the camera pulled back the others were looking at her like they were worried she had a stroke or something.
  9. I could see that happening. But as a joke I heard by my sister's pastor goes "25% of the nation identifies as Evangelical. So you take a hundred people and count out the 25 who consider themselves evangelical and let the other 75 leave the room. Give the 25 a half hour and each one will believe they are shut up with 24 sinners going to hell." Sometimes there is common ground, Biut it does make me laugh when what looks the same from the outside is considered vastly different (one is right the rest is wrong" approach. So I'm not sure if Pat thinks the Duggars are on the right side of God
  10. Not going to lie, I had ass-crack sweat Kathy Griffin would have been proud to claim. I hardly ever watch but when I do, I make up Whoopi segues. Because hers make no sense, Mine don't either but I make myself laugh. "Speaking of Saturn's rings, we'll be back with Jamie Oliver and fun summer treats you can make yourself..." "Speaking of bowel discomfort, One Direction will be with us next singing their new hit" "Speaking of Honda's new safety features, we'll be discussing Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon's divorce after this break"
  11. Something I forgot and yet notice in almost episode. This last episode it was when Elliott was wearing black tie. The actor is such a chameleon while managing to be the same guy if that makes sense, He goes from looking startling handsome to looking almost a bit gollum-ish (in normal scenes not the strung out ones). Yes I am shallow but in that scene wearing the black tie and jacket he looked both hot and vulnerable in that way that makes you make cocoa and pull out a blanket for the couch. I'm in a mood what can I say?.
  12. I spend every Sunday afternoon lately visiting my great aunt and watching baseball and that ad is on constantly. I hate it for two reasons. My aunt reponds to it with "gas. fart. more gas, fart" etc. Which makes me laugh. But she also does it every single time. So I'm getting tired of laughing. I do wonder at the vast untapped market of hipster wannabes Applebies is hoping to tap into. Are there any Applebies where carefully diverse. pretty but not pretty enough to be threatening, hipster types while away their evening hours nibbling and drinking and having SO MUCH FUN? Like it is t
  13. I do love Sara Rue. Not sure about the show just yet. I'm not that enamoured with the rest of the cast. I don't dislike any, I'm justnot charmed by them. I'm shallow so I'm okay with less talent and more visual appeal and one thing this show lacks so far is eye candy. Though having him having to pretend he is gay could mean some appealing male guest stars. I do think it would have been funnier if he was gay and had to pretend he was straight in a town that was the new weekend getaway for weekday Chelsea-ites. But I'm picky and try to fix things like this in a manner most viewers proba
  14. That one and now I see a newer one with an adult woman doing the mental over active handwringing. Nissan likes to hold on to their ads and get their money's worth. The bull ad just came back and the one with the kid has played pretty much non stop for months now that I have noticed. Oh and hate the Land Rover one. Get married at the fucking lodge in front of the fire for godsakes. Don't be such a self-absorbed asshole and drag them up to a not that nice anyway soaking mess of a "view".
  15. I differ in that I think the only way they can get back on a real network (see how funny I am?) as opposed to some marginal one fe people get or care that they get, is to piggy back on another show for a bit. Do the Bates still have a show? Or maybe TLC will start another show. they could find a barren Gotthard wife who got other already full Quivers to give her one of theirs. They could call it Nineteen Women who Had My Children and Counting. Silliness aside, I think anyone who depends on general sponsorship as opposed to niche marketing, will be careful for at least awhile and try
