Jennifer Aniston to 30 Rock

This year appears to be the year of the guest star. From Michael Kors on Gossip Girl, Lindsay Lohan on Ugly Betty, Nicole Richie on Chuck, all the way to Mary-Kate Olsen on Samantha Who, Britney’s starting trends again and this one is in full swing! So who does 30 Rock, that’s managed to nab Jerry Seinfeld and possibly Oprah, get to fill their quota? Why, Jennifer Aniston!This is a pretty big get for 30 Rock, since it appears that she has an intense phobia of TV or anything that is at all related to Friends. But who will she play? Details haven’t been released just yet, but keep checking back here!
Update:She will be playing Claire Harper, Liz Lemon’s former roommate who comes back and apparently stalks Jack!

Richard Chai (Men’s) Spring/Summer 2009

People always ask me why I spend so much time obsessing over women’s fashion, seeing as I can’t wear it. And while, in reality, I don’t have much hope of scoring any men’s fashion either, I skimmed through the men’s shows this season and one in particular piqued my interest. Richard Chai, current Target Go line superstar, subtitled his S/S ’09 show “good boy goes bad,” according to Style, inspired by a fight scene in The Outsiders. In this case, he channeled both the Soces and the Greasers, with details such as the famously mocked “short pants” of the Soces and the hard-edged plaid of the Greasers, with fabulous (take that, search engines!) results. Maybe it’s because everything is soo me, from the copius amounts of grey to the hair (someone told me the other day that I “remind them of Grease”) but I pretty much love every single thing in the collection. Now all I need is an amazing salary (or at least a job) and I can make it all my own. Muahahahahaha. To see the full collection, click click click

My Favorite Kids Shows

August 29, 2008 § Leave a comment

Kids shows strictly for kids? Don’t believe the hype! In case you ever find yourself up in the wee hours of the morning, and Regis is not on Regis and Kelly (seriously, Reege, pull it together)these are my recommendations for the kid in all of us!

LazyTown
•Weekdays at 10:30 AM on Nick Jr.
Photobucket
In this Icelandic import, the not-so-lazy,synthetic pink-haired protagonist Stephanie moves to a town where everyone is lazy! Fret not, young Stephanie, for our fearless leader Sportacus is here to save the day. All you have to do to reach the mysterious Sportacus is put a letter in a special mailbox which is then delivered to his plane/house in the sky and he will rush down and help the lazy kids of LazyTown. If this alone isn’t enough reason to watch, there’s always Robbie Rotten, the Grinch-like villain who plans foolproof disguises to spoil all the fun. Plus they have the tendency to break into sugar coated techno songs about the lessons they’ve learned.

The Doodlebops•Weekdays at 9:30 AM on Playhouse Disney
Photobucket
The Doodlebops, this time Canadian, follows the lives of the extremely in-demand kids band by the same name. They can’t go anywhere without being followed by legions of adoring fans, which I think is inspiring given the fact that they look something like homeless muppets shopping at the most sparkly goodwill in aaaalllll the land. It’s amazing, I promise! You’ll come for the “Don’t Pull the Rope!” gag that gets better every time, but you’ll stay for “Get on the Bus.”
Dragon Tales•Weekdays at 8:00 AM on PBS
Photobucket
What’s not to like? Spicy Latina jalapeños Max and Emmy discover that by way of a bizarre ritual that involves clutching a rock and chanting,they can be transported to a magical world of lovable dragons! Cassie has always been the best, but we can pretend to like the annoying Zak and Wheezie too. Plus, the DragonTunes? Genius! Max and Emmy are basically a big F U to Dora, who will never be as spicy as those two.

Well, that’s it kiddies! Set your alarms or fire up your Tivos. And remember, BOYCOTT HIP HOP HARRY!

“I have no problem with journalists – many are friends. Only if they are really stupid, or if they’ve got bad breath, or if they smell. Yesterday [after the Chanel couture show] I had a problem. I said, ‘I’m sorry, you’ve got to tell this woman that she needs to be taken away. Her smell is not possible.'”

Cans Are Chic

Yesterday as I watched someone drink out of a bottle of soda I made a “brilliant” discovery. Bottles are clunky and you have to pretty much have pour whatever liquid suits your fancy into your mouth, making you look like a big dork. So I have a trend report for you guys: the look of the moment is Cans. Cans Cans Cans Cans Cans! Think about it! They’re shiny and they make that little noise when you open them.Just trust me on this one. Anyone who’s anyone is drinking from cans.

Where Am I?
