I got my G2 today!
MK and A ain't got nothing on me now! Well, except oodles of vacation boyfriends, experience on the Model U.N., passports to Paris, a stint in the witness protection program, a serious beef with PETA (wow, pun unintended but kind of loved), my own multi-media corporation, a faux-parent who has a billboard-sized want ad, a series of Barbies with my likeness, two failed - but awesome - TV shows (Two of a Kind, I salute you!) that aren't Full House, a camp out party, a attic-based detective agency, an Uncle Jesse, a catchphrase involving the word "dude", an equestrian video game, a clothing line featured at Wal-Mart, a clothing line featured at Henri Bendel, the ability to play One Degree with Billy Aaron Brown and - oh yeah, a twin sister.
P.S - Caution: This news means mucho road trip adventures ahead! Thelma and Louise better watch out! (Oh dear, did I just set myself for a deadly cliff dive with my imaginary Thunderbird?!)

Is your green army jacket the only thing keepin' you warm tonight? Emile? Emile? Emile? You're my dirty man candy, Emile.
Hirsch-y Kisses + Denny not having weird ghost-sex with Izzie + Liev Schreiber in drag (!) + Ang Lee + boys in army jackets + Jonathan Groff, he's such a frizzy-wigged radical! + my future father-in-law Eugene Levy + most important musical festival in history = I just jizzed in my pants.
August 14 is too frickin' far away.
P.S. - I am a threat to national security according to Google. I searched "taking woodstock trailer" and it took me to a page that said "Your query looks similar to automated requests from a computer virus or spyware application. To protect our users, we can't process your request right now. We apologize for the inconvience and we hope we'll see you again on Google". Have I just been banned from the most popular search engine of the times because I wanted to get my Emile on? This is the defintion of injustice.
P.P.S - Take a long-winded gander at these pictorals. Is it just me or is Hirsch-y channeling Leo DiCaprio in Romeo + Juliet?

OMFG! I just heard some totally rad news! Andrew McCarthy is going back to the 1980s!
According to EW, the man best known as the kitchen appliance who stole Duckie's girl, is going to play Lily van der Woodsen's (played by Brittany Snow) dad, Rick, during flashbacks to Lily's teen years in the 80s on upcoming episode of Gossip Girl. The episode will be a preview of the new spin-off about Lily and will feature a newly rebanded No Doubt (!!) doing an Adam and the Ants cover.
I don't know about you, but the casting director hit solid gold with this one. No one rocks the 80s pastel suit better than Blaine. I'm not even into Gossip Girl right now, but this episode gets better by the kickass cameo appearance. You know you love it too.

All the nights we stayed up talking, listening to 80s songs and quoting lines from all those movies that we love. It still brings a smile to my face.

When did that sweet little Andrew Lawrence become a man-slut?! He totally broke my (and Marshall's!) heart tonight on The United States of Tara.
His character, Jason, has been having a secret fling with Tara's son Marshall. Last week, the duo shared their first kiss on Marshall's bed and this week, they decided that maybe they might make their bedroom escapades a regular thing. The secret relationship was hopelessly adorable and on the verge of really going somewhere. But then, Tara's alter ego "T" came into the picture and fucked it all up.
While Marshall went inside the house to talk to his dad, T lured Jason to the shed in the backyard and came on to him. Still kind of confused about his sexuality, Jason gave in. And of course, Marshall came into the shed and saw everything.
I literally yelled "FUCK!" at the screen when this happened. Marshall is the only character on that show that seems like a decent person and they had to wreak havoc on his well-earned happiness (Diablo Cody, I'm talking to you!). I don't blame him for kicking Tara out of his room when she tried to apologize for T's slutty shenanigans later on. Even if she wasn't "herself", who wants to see, let alone talk to the person who made the person you like break your heart?
I would have totally broke up with this show if Diablo and co. hadn't redeemed themselves with the final scene of the episode. In an (uncharacteristic) act of rage, Marshall put on a Billie Holiday record and set the shed on fire. The episode ends with a bittersweet and beautiful shot of him sitting stone-faced on a lawn chair as the family watches the shed burn down. Suck it Jason and T!

Today I went to see I Love You, Man again. And it was just as great the second time around.
Perhaps it's the fact that I find both Paul Rudd and Jason Segel to be way too funny for their own good, but honestly, I thought this movie was hysterical. Some of the catchphrases Paul's character, Peter, tries to make up were so awkward and wrong (he calls Jason's Sydney "Jobin" and "City Slicka") but they made crack up because quite frankly, haven't we all made some sort of terribly lame reference when we're making new friends?
One moment particularly struck home with me. At one point, Peter says "totes mcgotes" instead of "totally". Recently, I went through a faze where I added "mc" to everything (see: "awks mcgawks", "chills mcgills"). My friends, particularly Candis, said it was hilarious. But I know after the 100th time I said it was "lames mcgames", they secretly wanted to put me in the sleeper hold.
The point is, see this movie. If you're anything like me, and you're feeling the pre-exam stress building up inside, see this movie and you'll feel better. At least for 2 hours. Then you'll get stressed out again and be wondering how the hell to feel like a normal human being again. My advice? Just think of Jason Segel wearing man-Uggs and socks. Works like a charm.
P.S. - I think I might be obsessed with Rashida Jones' style in this movie. She wears so many cardigans and girly flowy tops that are too cute for words. And she has full-bangs which I guess I identify with now, since I'm officially became part of the full-bangs brigade as of Friday.

The band is a breath of fresh pop-rock air and features Tyler Kyte, the blonde boy from PMK (I'm dead serious). He is smokin' hot these days. But not as hot as the band's uber-catchy tunes.
