Episode 22 – That Was Pretty #!%&ing Ninja

Wherein your hostesses LOVE you, attend Celebrity Celebrity, do battle with flying cockroaches, fear the Dibbuk Box, vent about True Blood, and Dub Step (photo from awesome Kill The Noise video). Happy Labor Day, comrades!

Lisa aka TI flew solo to Celebrity Celebrity and got her geek on for a good cause…while totally crushing out on Nathan Fillion, Katee Sackhoff, Michael Trucco, and Josh Homme. As LA Weekly says, “In what may be the most meta-est example of fund-raising parlor games, Largo at the Coronet hosted the Pablove Foundation‘s version of a Celebrity deathmatch last night.” Read more – it was AMAZEBALLS.
Hey, wanna Pinterest-friend us? If you need man-candy, check out Ritzy’s MENS board…Lisa keeps a nerdy board, too.
Ritzy did battle with Periplaneta americana. (Pleased to announce she won.)
The Possession – in theaters now! – is a Sam Raimi film based on a story Lisa found, and in turn made into an awesome story in LA Times by our friend Leslie Gornstein. Recommended reading. Leslie is also on E! (Leslie, I love you and did not need to see the premiere xo Lisa)
“That was pretty fucking ninja.” Great quote from Generation Kill…also in Medal of Honor! Homage!
We love all things Top Chef. On now: TC Masters.
Kill The Noise video. Fucking awesome. Also awesome: Skrillex’s (Skrillexi?) vid for First Year of the Equinox. And he named his label OWSLA…he gains some serious Watership Down cool points for that.

Episode 19 with Author Chris Farnsworth

Super special guest, author Chris Farnsworth, joins us to talk about his newest President’s Vampire tale, “Red, White & Blood”…plus lots of other writerly, pop culture-y, and monstery stuff. Plus we bend it like Fassbender, drink the Ice T, and get It on. Big ups to our home town, Whale’s Vagina.

Nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh-nineteen.

So this happened.

Coachella – in all its fringed, headdress-ed “beauty;” Chris Hardwicke, Joss Whedon, Game of Thrones, Girls, general nerdiness. Spoilers ahoy!

…and 50 Shades of Grey. Yeah, even your nerdy hostesses with the mostesses are not immune to poorly-written-yet-addictive suburban BDSM. So sue us.

Recorded 5.25.12

Hey, Titanic? Yeah, your stars got called out.
Don’t miss the LA Ink Stains Prom! Or the super awesome comic book.
Black Widow had 3rd-most-screentime in Avengers…avenge that!
Don’t miss Joss’ high-five to his fans in this super sweet letter to Whedon fandom. Makes us feel good to be peeps.
Being Elmo. We suggest you be. Bring a hankie.
…have we mentioned lately that you should listen to Hollywood Babble On?
Our friend The Answer Bitch breaks down how much an episode of Game of Thrones costs. Spoiler alert: a lot.
We’re (begrudgingly) giving it up for HBO’s Girls.
We read 50 Shades of Grey like it was our job. Our low-paying, unfulfilling, terribly embarrassing job.
Mary Sue, meet Gary Stu, meet Christian Grey.
Want to shop in a ZOMBIE INFESTED SHOPPING MALL? Yeah, we’re not so sure either.
