Really?

Posted by on February 18, 2010 | 7 comments

Update: McCormack gives back – and the bulk of the IPS cast & crew have come out in support of their host state. Nichole Hiltz? Eh…this clip of her still really chaps my hide, you?

The above videos have recently been circulating of In Plain Sight ~stars Mary McCormack and Nichole Hiltz bashing the town that feeds ‘em.

©Sindication is launching a campaign to urge USA Network and the reps for both Hiltz and McCormack to do something positive for the community in which they’ve been lucky enough to be working.

In stark contrast, AMC’s Emmy winning series Breaking Bad gives back to NM all the while they are here: fundraising, featuring local wares and literally giving their life’s blood for their work.

Starz series Crash works feeding & clothing the homeless.

Megan Fox and Shai Lebeouf even look out for our area animal friends. (So, bite it Chelsea)

Join our Facebook group to speak out for your town.

Hear the controversy and feedback from McCormack herself on The Peak Morning Show today: 100.3 KPEK

UPDATE: Mac has taken to her twit account to ask her new friends at the Peak to play this two year old clip of her talking to a local t.v. station sans trash talk.

We say actions speak louder than old words and we’re asking Mac & Co. to donate to JTD’s upcoming Radiothon benefitting UNM Children’s Hospital and furthermore put some time in with The Storehouse ABQ.

This is How You Do It

Dee Wallace

Remember when Madonna, Kenny Rogers and Mickey Rourke had their original faces? Whenever I look at Madge I can’t help but wonder, “What if? What if she wasn’t wearing the vanity mask of irreparable alteration?”

The world will never know what she would have aged like naturally – or anything even remotely organically (ironic). We’re losing the faces of some of our icons to the cut, plumped, stretched, lifted and tucked facade they aim for and they’re all starting to look alike. Poor Pricilla Queen of the Dumplings may be one of the saddest examples.

It’s so refreshing to see someone like Dee Wallace – who granted may have incredible genes and could easily partake in a little Botox or collagen, but in any case you see her and it’s like, “Hey, it’s the mom from E.T.!” Her face is still hers and I wouldn’t think it induces any cringe of, “Ugh, what did she do to herself?”

Here’s hoping our generation’s applaud-able actors and actresses keep it real so that we might recognize them for their faces. I would like to think that Sandy Bullock and Reese Witherspoon will not be indiscernible above the neck in the next 20 years.

Paltrow and Alba can go vanity mask hell for all I care, but don’t blemish my Sandy.

Use Abuse – Extra Money!*%#$

Posted by on May 27, 2009 | 2 comments

UPDATE 3/2/11: Dé-jà-to-the-f’n-vu Edition

After tripping over an unexpected $16M in their budget right around this time last year, KOAT Reports today that APS has $15M more in their budget than previously accounted for.

We wonder what the sneaky contract extension seeking, six figure salaried, take home car fleet driving, board and administration of Superintendent “Harry” Winston Brooks will add to their pocket lining in light of this new development.

We say TAKE A PAY CUT Harry Winston & crew – there’s still $26M and miles to go…before you should be able to sleep.

Turn Down Service

Okay, ‘extra’ is a word and ‘money’ is a word but nay shall the two be combined. Ask anyone whether their account be empty or overfloweth – there is no extra. In the same way that a moment with a loved one lost can never be regained once passed – extra time too is impossible.

It’s time to put these sayings to bed. We thought about giving them a funeral like the ones for the ‘n‘ and the ‘r‘ words, but a gentle bed time story should suffice. Our Twitter friend Cody H has obliged us ceasing the Use Abuse of the phrase in his daily tweets.

So, nighty night ‘extra money’ we’ll see you just before the return of Christ and right after the apocalypse. In the mean time many happy returns to you and yours during this our time of Recession, because ain’t no such thang’ as extra money – unless you’re the Albuquerque Public School District.

Use Abuse

Posted by on May 18, 2009 | Comments Off

Since this Queen of Marital Economic Bliss misused and abused the word “gorgeous” on the Regis show at the 2:20 mark – back in 2007, I’m sure she’s moved on to other tag lines. Well that dehydrated pile of chicken bones with a mouth (I’m just jealous) has not! Kelly has taken her old tired “Amazing” exclaimation and replaced it and a myriad of other adjectives and verbs in the English language with J. Seinfeld’s “GORGEOUS!”

Kells has always been a bit of a chameleon, adapting to the peeps around her to perform her best and meld to their persona, I’ve noted that her personality is shrinking along with her figure – I believe she’s now resorted to 95% impersonation and imitation – Hells, she’s been invoking Kathie Lee’s signature cackle & screech on the show since replacing her. I wonder where she got, “Big Daddy”, cause’ I’m taking it from her and using for the rest of my life, but I’ll never make a transitive verb out of it!

You can of course watch Kells sit next to Regis every weekday morning on ABC/24 hr. Disney Commercial. Her current, highest-rotation, mimmic for dramatic effect is her version of ex-costar Faith Ford’s deep voiced inflection, avec pouty face.
