(Here is the trailer for the first season of the show!)
Season 3 just started and I am loving every second. True Blood is based on a series of novels by Charlaine Harris but seriously PWNS the heck out of them. Allan Ball (Six Feet Under) took the basic premise of the novels - being a vampire has just been made legal, telepathic waitress hooks up with one, chaos ensues - and uses it as the foundation for a wonderfully Southern Gothic series that touches on a lot of the major trigger points of American culture at the moment - gays, God, and guns. (The fact that Alexander Skarsgard aka Team Eric is easy on the eyes doesn’t hurt any, either.)
I discovered punky pop princess Allison Iraheta when she opened for Adam Lambert on the Glam Nation tour and I have been unable to put down her album since then. Produced in true American Idol-alum style by a butt-load of producers, Just Like You is a surprisingly coherent and extremely catchy pop-rock album. Allison has a phenomenal voice - powerful but firmly under her control - and a great sense of rhythmic timing. And if she was the one selecting the songs, she has great taste, too. With song lyrics about how “You Don’t Know Me” so you can’t judge her and other ones telling a texting obsessed lover to put down the God-damned phone, she puts out a much more spunky version of young womanhood than the infantile Taylor “Please Like Me” Swift.
OMG/Teach Me How to Dougie
My summer jams - I like hip-hop.
“OMG” by Usher is pure, club-busting hip-hop with classic lyrics like “Her booty like ‘Pow Pow Pow’/ Her boobies like “Wow O Wow” that just keep me coming back for more.
“Teach Me How to Dougie” by the Cali Swag Crew is the exact opposite of “OMG” - charmingly amateur in its catchiness but catchy nonetheless.
This one isn’t a surprise. These men are currently pressing all my buttons. Arshad is currently dancing up a storm on Zara Nach and twit-picing adorable pictures of himself on Twitter and after charming my socks off in Raavanan, I’ve been catching up with Vikram’s back catalog.
I don’t know what it is that unites the two of them in my mind except that they are both devilishly handsome with buckets of masculine charisma.
(Check out the epic bitch-face from the crowd.)
I want to marry her and have her babies. Girlfriend is super-fine and I could watch in the crappiest roles all day long. Fortunately, she has chosen some un-crappy roles and I’ll get to see her working with two of the most talented (and coincidentally both female!) directors in Bollywood at the moment - Farah Khan and Zoya Akhtar.

This one might get me some flack but I don’t care! I love the cast of Jersey Shore completely unironically. Basically, I am Snooki, snooking for love in all the wrong places. It bugs me that they have become a national joke because when it comes right down to it, who hasn’t gotten so drunk they bite some random person’s nipples or dance alone on the sidewalk? We are Jersey Shore!
Plus, how cute is Vinny? Cute, right?! They had better not fire him for season 3.
And the stuff I’m looking forward to... Once Upon a Time in Mumbai! Twilight: Eclipse! Tees Maar Khan! Action Replayy! Jersey Shore SEASON 2!
I love things!!!
