I am so over:
PC's: I bought a Mac last April and I luv it!
It's the machine of artists (*batting my eyelashes*) , plus they are by and large cuter, cooler and more durable than Dells, HPs, Compaqs, Gateways, etc...
Girlfriends: I admit, I love Joan, Lynn, Toni, and Mya just as much as everyone else. But the show reached its peak about 2 seasons ago and has taken a steady downward spiral ever since.
It's sad that the four very talented actresses didn't get their due in Hollywood (surprise, surprise), but really, I think the show has done what it set out to do, and said what it wanted to say. The only reason I still watch is to see what fab ensembles Joan and Mya will be sporting....and to occasionally hear William call the girls heffas.
MTV: Uhh. Saying this about MTV is like talking about a childhood friend. I literally grew up watching this network. From sneaking and watching Real World (I think that I saw the original airing of Tammy and David's fight...loooong time ago), to staying up late to watch their teen drama Undressed, to marathons of Daria, to the first season of Cribs, this network has defined how I look at music and music culture.
But it's just sad now. The reality shows are terrible (why did they take away Andy Milonakis, that was a good show!) and it's full of dating games...and don't get me started on Real World, it's like these kids grew up watching the show and now want to reincarnate their favorite cast members. Stinky.
The Academy Awards: When they nominated Pride & Prejudice, I was DONE. The dumbest movie ever gets multiple nominations while other really great movies get looked over because they aren't commercial enough. I didn't understand then, but have since learned that the world (especially "media") is driven by advertising dollars. So, by nominating Beyonce in Dreamgirls, they guarantee gazillions of people will watch the show, thereby commanding a higher advertising rate and simultaneously eroding the credibility and prestige of the award. I mean they are practically handing out those little gold men.
Gwyneth Paltrow (who I think is a great actress) won for Shakespeare in Love....'nuf said.
Eyeliner: I have spent the better part of my life trying to perfect the application of eyeliner. But I have realized that it is no use. I have, quite possibly, the smallest set of eyes ever created. And while I LOVE the heavy, kohl Cleopatra Jones/Catwoman eyeliner jobs that all the girls about town are sporting these days, I have realized that it will never look right on my face. Sigh. I am, however, completely rededicating myself to mascara/augmented eyelashes.
Clinique's High-Impact Mascara is my current obsession, though I still believe that Maybeline produces the best mascaras ever! The classic formula in the pink and green bottle has been my staple since I was in single digits!
Luv, Peace and Hair Grease,
