2010 People’s Choice Awards recap

In the interest of full disclosure, the reviewer freely admits to not watching the entire broadcast.  So, here is the review of the parts he did watch.

This is either Taylor Lautner or Taylor Swift.  We don't know the difference.

This is either Taylor Lautner or Taylor Swift. We don't know the difference.

I tuned in to America’s 23th most popular award show last night just in time to see the Temp, the Bear Jew and Bridget von Hammersmark presenting the award for Favorite Breakout Movie Actor.  To an ear-splitting eruption of shrill, prepubescent screams and female orgasms, that Taylor dude from New Moon beat out new Kirk, new Spock, a robot and the kid from 3rd Rock From the Sun for the “honor.”

In lieu of trying to watch his speech through the sound of hysterical, young girls becoming women at decibels meant to force information out of detainees at Gitmo, I turned the channel and watched Cougar Town.

Perhaps next year, I can make it through 2 whole categories.  Until then…enjoy Awards Show Season!

Summer Movie Preview – Vagabond Joe

Summer movies are as American as baseball, apple pie and Heidi Montag’s inexplicable career And, summer movie previews are a blog standard, so it’s time we force our opinions down your throat.

George Peppard will literally climb from the grave and destroy these guys if they screw this up.

In the First Annual EJSIC Summer Movie Preview series, we will be giving our opinions on 5 summer flicks that should be worth seeing.   And since most movies that are released in the summer, even a summer devoid of anything from Michael Bay, are usually awful, we’ll include 10 movies that are…shall we say, less than imperative.

Watch out, it the @#$%ing NCAA!

Watch out, it's the @#$%ing NCAA!

  • Rich Rod compares Michigan NCAA investigations to Hurricane Katrina. No word on whether or not he also invoked the Ted Kennedy defense. (Deadspin)
  • Notre Dame thumbs their noses at their bowl invite.
  • Another unemployed fat guy from the College Football ranks hits the streets. Make the call Jurich. Football needs fat guys and we both know you can’t do any better.
  • Eli Manning signs the wall in the Cowboys locker room after the Giants win. Widespread panic sweeps the nation.
  • Giambi: Before and After.

  • Bud Adams gets fined $250,000 for his two finger salute to the Bills. That seems a little excessive for something you may see driving home from work today.
  • The Mighty Balls dismiss two of their armed robbery all-stars. It’s good to see that they do have limits of some sort down there.
  • LeBron screams out KNICKS in bed. (Sports Pickle)
  • Speaking of LeBron,  he’s petitioning to have Jordan’s #23 retired in the NBA. Hello new jersey sales.
  • Kentucky almost losing to a mid-major is front page news, but UCLA actually losing to a mid-major isn’t even mentioned on the basketball page. Typical. I get that expectations are different for the two teams, but that didn’t stop people for falling all over themselves over Gardner Webb and VMI the past couple years.
  • Just to prove that they’re doing everything they can to be terrible again, the Bengals bring in Larry Johnson. (Deadspin)
