Favourite Friday: May 9 Edition

May 9, 2014

Ally: Remember me? No? We’re totally sorry for the shortage of blog posts lately. I’d like to have an important excuse, like I’m training to be a cardiac surgeon, but the truth is I’m obsessed with Parenthood and am submerged in season three right now. This seems like a good way to kick off the Favourite Friday post.


El Jeffe and I have a tendency to get into shows well after they’ve begun. For example, we spent a good two months in the fall/early winter watching Breaking Bad. A few years ago, we did the same thing with Six Feet Under. It’s sort of nice, because you don’t have to wait to see what happens “next season”. It’s sort of awful because you’re so addicted you find yourself watching Parenthood instead of doing important things like, I don’t know, brushing my hair. If you are a fan of Parenthood, and I’m assuming a lot of you are, do not spoil it for me! I think I need a seperate post about Julia’s work attire and Kristina’s “tendrils”.


And I know enough to know that some sad things happen to Kristina in the upcoming seasons, so I won’t talk about her hair too much, but seriously those “tendrils”. No.


When you think that we are ignoring the blog completely, sometimes we’re not. Sometimes we’re spending an embarrassing amount of time writing posts that are called, “You’re Bad in Bed Based on Your Music Videos: Pitbull Edition”. I think it’s important to share your failure from time-to-time, just so people know that you’re not this superior, genetic gift of God, living a life of splendour in the suburbs. I’m human too, guys! Behold, the worst post ever:

Ally: We haven’t had an honest to goodness pop culture snark post lately, and this makes me feel sad and like a failure. I thought about how I could change this, and in effect make the world a better place, last night at 3am and came up with a brand new theme for the blog: You’re Bad in Bed based on your Music Videos. I don’t know how I do it either, but I do.

First up to bat is Pitbull in the first video that has ever actually stopped me from downloading a crappy pop song.



….and this is where I ran out of steam….and Pitbull gifs. Be thankful for life’s small gifts. I don’t think this theme would have lived very long, or brought us any blogging awards. I could be wrong. I was planning a seperate post on Justin Timberlake’s videos, but after that…who would we have? Enrique? Hmm…maybe there is something to this…


I go back and forth on Rihanna, as many of you long-time readers are aware. Right now I can’t get enough of her, and her unique ability to tell Instagram to fuck right off. I’m also making her MET Gala ensemble my new desktop background photo.


Rihanna also deserves some attention on our blog in the coming weeks. I wish I could take a time machine back to my twenties and do them over again a la Rihanna (the millions of dollars helps her confidence, but still).

Crappy Pop Video of the Week

There are a lot to choose from these days. Lots! This one is getting some love on my iShuffle this week, so I needed to share.

Be honest. You missed me.
