Your Obsessions This Week–Open Discussion

Submitted by on January 16, 2009 – 10:19 pm3 Comments

I’m trying something new today. I’ve written about what captured my attention these last few days so I was wondering: What bits of entertainment did you enjoy this week? Did you see/hear/read anything awesome/dreadful you want to rant/rave about? Tell me what you’ve been obsessing about and why.

Here are some topics to maybe spark some thoughts: Kelly Clarkson’s new single “My Life Would Suck Without You” (listen to it in the video below), news coverage of that amazing US Airways plane landing, Watchmen lawsuit settled, Joaquin Phoenix releasing a rap album produced by P.Diddy, The L Word getting a spin-off in prison, Harrison Ford and Brendan Fraser teaming up for a movie with no swashbuckling whatsoever, Grisson’s CSI goodbye, Kate Winslet winning two Golden Globes, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, your early American Idol faves, the inauguration—where/how will you be watching it?

C’mon, the floor is yours, tell me what captivated you, share a guilty obsession and maybe find out you’re not alone. Don’t be shy—promise I won’t judge!*

*Unless you’re addicted to porn or The Hills

    I was really quite upset to hear that the local newspapers in Los Angeles fired all of their theatre critics. Their reasoning: L.A. Theatre was redundant. While I do agree on some level, I do feel their actions were a bit harsh.

    I was glad to hear WBros and FOX settled their disagreement over WATCHMEN. I can’t wait to see it.

    I read the dumbest thing in the paper today! Steve McPherson (head of ABC) is so STUPID! He kept saying Melissa George was in only 1 episode and then he changed it to two. Not that I am a fan or anything (heterosexual, thank you) of Grey’s Anatomy, but even I know that babe’s been in at least five.

    BTW: if anyone knows her, please deliver her to my doorstep. I think my wife would be okay with it. REALLY!!!
