What Every American's New Year's Resolution Should Be

It's almost the end of the year and time for our annual New Year's Resolutions. Some of us will resolve to lose weight, get in shape, get a new job, eat healthier, or even spend more time with the kids. What if I told you that you could do all of these things and more by resolving to do just one thing? Better still, this one thing won't cost you anything. In fact, I guarantee it will save you money!...more

Those are amazing statistics.
I never ever have the TV on when I am alone. I read 10x more ...more

Never Too Young to be a Consumer

As we approach the Christmas season, I'm noticing more commercial time in between Dora and Diego.  So are my kids.  They've been able to resist the pull of flashy pink Barbie houses and shiny Big Wheels thus far.  I can only imagine what next Christmas will bring.  Christmas lists filled with glittery junk that they'll never use because those little actors looked so happy playing with their jiggly brain slime.  Is the laboratory and lightning strike included?  How about the spooky music and voice-over laugh? ...more

Sons of Anarchy: Where the Old Ladies Rule (Spoilers)

I love Sons of Anarchy. Even Season 3. And I will be watching the finale tonight. ...more

It's fascinating to read what other women think of the show. I personally love it (Katey Sagal, ...more

Can't Stand The Hate: Cutting BridalPlasty Down To Size

Kristy is an occasional guest blogger for The Demoiselles and a member of the TD community (moniker “Owl“); an opinionated 20-whatever-something who can’t seem to shut up about feminist, queer, and fat issues; a Tumbl-er who posts pretty things, funny things, random things and her personal theology (Owls & Elephants); a damn good baker and a shitty knitter....more

VH1 or MTV

What has happend to VH1 and MTV.  Years ago when videos first came out we watched them on an odd channel and then they started appearing on HBO.  Then MTV and VH1 popped up.  We were in absolute heaven.  We love our music videos in this household, but wait a minute.  What has happened to VH1 and MTV.   ...more

But I really miss the old MTV. Sigh.

Live, From New York, It's a Cookie Monster Saturday Night

Cookie Monster has big late night dreams -- he wants Saturday Night Live fame.This beloved, snack-obsessed Sesame Street character says he knows that you may think of him as a mere "cookie eating fanatic, bordering on glutton," but there is more to him than that. He wants to show the world. He wants to take it to the next level.Oh, and he prefers the term "Cookie Enthusiast," thank you very much....more

Cookie Monster gets my vote! I only watch SNL when there's great bands or guest hosts. The ...more

New Buffy Movie WITHOUT Whedon?!? Hand Me a Stake!

Fans of the cult favorite Buffy the Vampire Slayer series are unhappily whittling wooden stakes over news from Warner Bros. Pictures and Atlas Entertainment that a new Buffy movie will be produced for 2011 or 2012. You would think that new adventures for the epic Slayer would be cause for celebration, but the effect is the opposite because the new movie will be made without the participation of Buffy's beloved creator Joss Whedon. ...more

No Whedon, no way!

They could at least pander to us hardcore fans by bringing in Jane ...more

Hawaii Five-0: Cops, Crime and Bikinis

When I was a kid, watching the original Hawaii Five-0 was like taking a weekly trip to paradise. Yeah, there were crooks, drug kingpins, kidnappings and murders, but it all happened in such a pretty place, who cared? Flash forward to 2010 and the new Hawaii Five-0, just like the old one, is a hit. It'll have to go about another ten years to match the original but it's definitely made a start. ...more

That is kind of late!

Yeah, part of the problem with Kono (Grace Park) is that because she's ...more

Did Gwyneth Paltrow Really Just Save Glee?

Did an anti-bullying plotline and Gwyneth Paltrow just save Glee's second season? I don't know what you think, anyone out there watching, but I'm going to be bold and say "yes" and "yes." Really. ...more

I have to admit I have never been a fan of Gwyneth but last night on Glee she was great. I have ...more

Pop Culture Teachers: Who Makes The Grade?

This week Gwyneth Paltrow joins the cast of Glee as a substitute who takes over for a sick Mr. Schue (let the naughty nurse fantasies commence!). It got us thinking -- there may never be another fictional faculty as gorgeous and funny as McKinley High’s, but there are myriad (you’re welcome, Westerburg High English department) pop culture profs who paved the way for Sue, Schue, Bieste, and Figgins. Here, we grade the most memorable pre-Glee educators from TV and film. ...more

I love this list!

Some additions from my own childhood, Mr. Dixon from "Room 222." It was ...more
