|Can SEACREST emulate YODA and out~act his co~star?
was the fact that COKE
had obviously put money into this too - US readers note that when it is broadcast in the UK, the COKE
cups that the judges have are blurred, just like in a reality crime show! - as HC
was drinking from a COKE
can throughout his appearance. So what we got was a product placement within a product placement on a TV show - how's that for 'Meta TV'? Laughs did ensue, however, when RYAN SEACREST
referred to his shambolic EMMY
hosting experience. Nice one Rye!
It was 'Hollywood Week' (or should that be 'weak' - see what I did there?)
and pretty dull. The only memorable moments were when the arrogant
little Brit~wannabe JOSIAH
got booted off (after he said he was gonna make it through)
and blubbed like a four year~old. Idiot! Sadly,
we have missed out on a future TV phenomenon as KYLE
nearly made it but fell right at the end. Oddly, SIMON "I Wish I Had What You Have Kyle" COWELL
made his feelings perfectly
clear, he wanted him in and was 'disappointed' by his fellow judges. As was I Si, as was I. Kyle
would have a welcome addition to the beautiful (yet ugly) a~holes
that populate the current series.
Simon Cowell wants to be this guy. No, really.
Elsewhere on TV, ASHES TO ASHES
got worse. Her
constant referencing to others as 'constructs' really was too
much. We get it already!
She knows, we know. SAM
used to just get on with it you daft cow
! Like last week, there were some larfs and the soundtrack was topping - TENPOLE "Our Singer Was Once A Possible Dr Who" TUDOR
, nice! - but the story was weak (predictably so) and the show is painfully thin on substance. I'll give it one more weak. Oops
, I meant 'week'. (Note to self: don't use the same pun twice again)
. The numbnuts
should take a leaf out of the book that the makers of LOST
are using. This week's (not broadcast in the UK yet)
was superb. Those bastids
keep delivering juicy, juicy material. Last post I mentioned my wish to see odd~balls DESMOND
together, well it nearly
bloody happens. So close.
And there's a tantalising
closing few minutes...
Two Blog~points if you know who this is.
In film news, THE MIGHTY BOOSH
have confirmed they're doing a movie - see HERE
. The recent INDIANA JONES etc...
trailer has been altered for 'International' audiences, read about the changes HERE
It wasn't him they digitally altered...
The aforementioned HC
has revealed, alongside SAMMY J
, that he would be happy to lend his voice to the upcoming CLONE WARS
, get that news HERE
A while back I 'reported' that the last film from HEATH LEDGER
, THE IMAGINARIUM OF DR PARNASSUS
, would feature JOHNNY DEPP
taking over his role. Well, it seems this is
true but there will be a few others also
portraying the late actor's character - see HERE
He looks sad 'cos he can't get CHANNEL 5, that's where NEIGHBOURS is now.PETER "Always In The Limelight" GABRIEL
has announced he's doing the music from PIXAR
's new flick, WALL•E
, get the 411 HERE
. I'm a huge PETEY G
fan (although his last album was a bit p*sh)
and his film work had been truly
exemplary. Less discreet viewers may be familiar with "That'll Do"
from BABE: PIG IN THE CITY (he didn't write that one though)
and the "surprised~it~wasn't~a~hit" "Book Of Love"
from the despicable SHALL WE DANCE
as well as countless other films that have used his tracks: VANILLA SKY
; GANGS OF NEW YORK
to name a few but check out the full list HERE
. But the more tasteful
film~lover may remember his work on LAST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST
and RABBIT~PROOF FENCE
. Not just three awesome
soundtracks but three superlative~beating pieces of music.
Taxi for the new BOND title?'Til the next time,C.
