Time-Sucks for a Monday

I’m Such a Sucker for Over-the-Top

I’m officially in love with Californication! That new show with David Duchovny? Even though I got all snarky about the name on another blog’s comments, I’ve got to take it all back. Well, I still don’t like the name. I just don’t like made up, cutesy words… you know, like ginormous and chillax and crap like that. (Except for the name “Hygena”, that one just makes me laugh.) Plus, the Chili Peppers have really played out their whole California theme ad nauseum. And I live here. I don’t know about the rest of you but every time I hear “Dani California”, I start singing “Mary Jane’s Last Dance”.

Anyway, Californication makes me laugh in the same way Psych does (but, you know, with the naughty instead of the eighties jokes). It’s also nice that the show is dialed in; they assume their audience knows what a mashup is or a blog and they just make their oblique references and don’t explain anything. After having to explain certain terms to family members who seriously should know better (and more than once, I might add), I kind of appreciate that.

Don’t mind my blathering… Keen still hasn’t watched our Tivo’d shows and I have no one to gush with. (I’m nagging him something fierce.)

It’s all good.            - wg



I haven't seen Californication yet, but I have to give you props for dogging Red Hot Chili Peppers. Seriously, we all get that you're from California. Now GET OVER YOURSELVES!!!!!!


Still haven't watched it. I do Weeds, but haven't given Duchovny a shot.
