What Do We Have to Look Forward to on the Tween Networks? More of the Same. Hurray!

There are two types of shows that end up on the tween channels ABC Family and the CW — the bad ass ones like Gossip Girl, and the wimpy ones you watch with your mother, like Life Unexpected. ABC Family used to be pure wimp, CW used to be more bad ass. But it looks like they’re both taking cues from one another and blurring the lines.¬† Shall we take a look at what the baby cable networks decided young girls and other-people-too-old-to-watch-shit-but-somehow-we-get-sucked-in-anyway will be watching this fall?¬† —

Hellcats

I don’t even know if ABC Family’s boring gymnastics show Stick It is still on, nor I do care to any immense degree, but looks like the CW decided to go ahead and create the same show with cheerleaders. Watch the boring trailer full of awkward non-talking/nondescript movements, and then get excited for this gem to shine on the fall schedule–

Pretty Little Liars

So then ABC Family was like, hey, if you’re going to steal our boring gymnastics show, we’re going to make a less-intense, less-interesting version of Gossip Girl and call it Pretty Little Liars. No one will be as attractive as they are on GG, and there’s no way this show will weasel its way into pop culture like the CW hit did, but why not give it a whirl? Trailer below–

Nikita

Like.. La Femme Nikita. Upcoming CW show. Looks kind of cool, but will I watch? Nah. All this action will get in the way of the characters scheming and shopping. Let’s be honest, I can knock the CW and ABC Family shows all I want, but they’ve got me wrapped around their litttttle fingers with their formulaic soaps.

A Zombie Attack in LA: What to Do, Where to Go

via pulp factor

Maybe you scoffed at the title of this post, but when the walking dead are sucking your brains out with a straw… well, I’ll probably still be alive to tell you, “I told you so.” So here are a couple ways to keep yourself protected in the City of Angels:

1) Head to the ocean: This is a tricky one… on one hand, zombies don’t always particularly love water, but remember in ZOMBI 2 where the zombies WALKED ON THE BOTTOM OF THE OCEAN? Or when the zombie fought the shark UNDER WATER? Then again, if you’re near the ocean, might be the safest bet, as zombies aren’t the most graceful and you could probably out-swim them for a while.

2) Head downtown: Tall downtown buildings mean good watchtowers, so you can keep a birds-eye view of zombie invasions. High roofs are also useful for displaying messages when helicopters fly above. The downside? If the zombies manage to get into the building, the only way to go is up… and then to jump.

3) Head to a mall (a la the Beverly Center): Per DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978 and 2004), the mall can be a good place to hole up. You can find plenty of places to lock yourself into while still remaining in one structure. However, things can turn dangerous if you get stuck in a store with only one exit and the zombies descend. But if you can avoid getting trapped, a mall is a great source of resources to keep you alive and safe.

Thanks for Nothing, Google.

Google is famous for it’s logo changes to commemorate holidays, special events… and sometimes just random crap they decide to go with. Like today, for example. I see a lovely ballet graphic replacing the name of the search engine, so I hover over the image to discover that it is – drum roll, please – Tchaikovsky’s 170th birthday. Good to know, Google.

Over the years, Google’s gotten pretty original with its logos, especially around the world. Here are some of the more unique logo changes and the history behind them… that may or may not be relevant to your life in any way.

The HARD TIMES for MTV Are Coming to an End

I’m pretty excited about THE HARD TIMES OF RJ BERGER, which will be on MTV in June. The kid that plays RJ (Paul Iacono) is so freakin’ adorable. From what I see in the trailer, the show feels a little bit like The InBetweeners or Freaks and Geeks, and after MTV surprised me with My Life as Liz, they’ve gained some of my confidence in them back. And what’s more shocking? Seeing the trailer for this funny/precious coming-of-age tale actually doesn’t make me as terrified to see what MTV is going to do with their remake of one of my favorite Brit teen shows, Skins. Which is like me letting a sobering up hobo hold my newborn baby.

GLEE in the Hands of a Rock Junkie… What a Scary Place We’ve Found

Madonna last week, a cameo by Olivia Newton-John this week, Lady Gaga and Britney episodes on the way… Glee definitely has its favorite artists, and by now the show has made enough of a pop culture impact that the music industry is paying plenty of attention. But I’ve noticed that the Glee playlist is pretty much the same you’d find on any drag queen’s iPod — so what about the rest of us? As a rockaholic, here are some of the themed episodes I’d love to see on Glee —

ALICE COOPER

Alice + Artie = Gold

Kurt’s dad makes some more gay comments, sending the little guy into a heartbreaking rendition of “Only Women Bleed.” Rachel gets all up in Mercedes’ grill – as usual, that obnoxious bitch – and Mercedes breaks out a defiant “Go To Hell.” Cameo by Alice singing a duet of “Dead Babies” with Artie because, well, that’d be awesome for no particular reason.

METALLICA

Metall-GLEE-ca

Confused Male Teacher intros with “Master of Puppets,” while Confused Female Teacher with Bug Eyes sings “Poor Twisted Me.” The Glee Gang competes against the bad ass rivals, but take home the prize with their a cappella version of “Stone Cold Crazy.”

GEORGE THOROGOOD

Singin' alone, drinkin' alone

Obligatory: Finn sings “You Talk Too Much” to Rachel in the beginning of the episode, which later prompts her sloppy bar scene tune “1 Whiskey, 1 Scotch, and 1 Beer.” Confused Male Teacher sings “I Really Like Girls” — no one believes him. And then Quinn sings “Woman with the Blues,” and we all get sad and shit.

IGGY POP AND THE STOOGES

He'd mess them kids up.

Sue Sylvester makes an appearance with “Raw Power” as she leads the Cheerios to Nationals. Tries to thwart the Glee club’s attempts to -fill in the blank-, but the kids fight back with “Gimme Danger.” Confused Female Teacher with Google Eyes serenades Confused Male Teacher with “I Wanna Be Your Dog.” Interrupted by an Iggy cameo, and, well, the truth about Teacher’s sexuality is at last revealed!

Oh, and here’s the Olivia Newton-John “Physical” cameo if you didn’t catch it last night:
