Beverly Hills, 90210

Much to my flatmate's dismay, I have discovered the SOAP Network. I only watch old episodes of Beverly Hills, 90210 on it. And only if it's good... (which means I deleted "Walsh Family Christmas" before even pressing play.) To my delight my DVR (Digital Video Recorder, or TiVo if you will) happened to tape my favorite episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 -

Plot Summary for "Beverly Hills, 90210" My Desperate Valentine (1991)
Emily refuses to accept the fact that Brandon no longer wants to see her. She slashes her own tires and pretends that her parents are out of town so that Brandon will invite her to stay over. She sneaks into his bedroom and tries to seduce him. After he makes it clear that he is not interested, she begins to make crank phone calls. Andrea discovers that Emily is the person who has been sending menacing letters to the school paper. Emily shows up at Brandon's house and douses the gang's homecoming float with gasoline. Brenda and Dylan find her sitting on the float with a lighter, but Brenda is able to calm her. Emily agrees to seek help. Brenda and Dylan attend cultural events because she fears they spend too much time making out. [Source]

- It's been so long since I've seen this episode that I was convinced that the ended up torching the float... but she chickened out, dumb biatch! Man, for the most fatal attraction type episode they were going to have - they could have taken it up a notch. I still remain that 90210 was really good before Shannen Doherty's character, Brenda Walsh, left. Of course I relate to her - she was the only brunette, her eyes were crooked and no one really liked her, duh! I can't believe they tried to get Tiffani Amber Theissen to replace her bitchiness! I also feel the same way about Charmed - can't believe they tried to get Rose McGowan to replace her bitchiness witchiness! I mean, what are we left with these days? Desperate Housewives? Dude I'm not 45 and live in the suburbs. Degrassi Jr. High? I didn't like Jr. High when I was in it - I don't want to watch it on TV. Seventh Heaven? Ungh, forget it! And what are we going to do now that Aaron Spelling is deceased? Anyone picking up what I'm putting down?
You know that I first remember the whole blazer + t-shirt + jeans hipster/indie thing happening and getting popularized on 90210? It hasn't gone away since.
Just thank god that some of the fashion from other shows hasn't stuck. Yish!

In the spirit of things, I took this Quizilla test:

Which Original 90210 Character Are You?
brought to you by Quizilla

Told you I could relate to Brenda! Remember when Shannen got into a fight with Paris Hilton? And Tara Reid (twice)? You know who I'm siding with! Anyway, I think my TV watching is regressing because I've also been watching a lot of "The N" for... oh I'll save that for next time! Toodles!

Scissor Sisters' "Don't Feel Like Dancing" vs. Leif Garrett's "I Was Made For Dancing"

We were at The Roosevelt Hotel last Saturday night to hang with our friend Liza who has come to visit us from the desert land called Mesa, AZ. We all ended up by the pool (you know how I roll) and this guy who was making tasteless jokes, giving us candy, buying us drinks turned out to be none other than 70s pin up boy Leif Garrett. [Pictured at left with my flatmate - to compare the hair to the hat color at Leif's behest.] I didn't know who he was until I was stumbling away from the hotel hanging onto J.Wo laughing out loud, and after Tasha asked us how it was having Leif Garrett buy us drinks, screaming, "Leif Garrett?! Hahahahaha! THAT was Leif Garrett?!" then turning and asking "Who the fuck is Leif Garrett?"
He's none other than #46 on The 100 Most Unsexiest Men in the World! That's who... I guess to someone out there, (J.Wo's Aunt perhaps?) it's the equivalent of having a drunken night of picture taking and bad puns with W. Axl Rose?

Pictures here:

Upon leaving The Roosevelt, I spent the rest of the night and morning barfing - party girl style, of course. Glamourous! Either way, certain persons of the entourage found it neccessary to find out what Mr. Garrett was famous for. Was his 1978 hit inspiration for Scissor Sister's 2006 single? Judge for yourself:

CP: ¡Feliz Navidad!

Another Xmas, another HHH (Hollywood Hills House). I know you're probably sick of my camera phone pictures, but hey, it's easy and I can very easily send pictures through Bluetooth from my Treo to my mac.

I can't believe I'm attempting to work right now, but here I am... I'm feeling a little bit bogged down by the slow pace of the holidays & I haven't had a drink in two days* so even if it is 135a I'm feeling awake and am a little bored of hanging out (since I'm not drinking) so I pulled out my laptop and here we are. I hope you made it through your Hanukah/Xmas/Kwanzaa/Winter Solstice festivities okay!

I'm sitting in a massive house (not mansion, just house) in the hills above Sunset Plaza. To the left you'll see the view from the backyard/pool area, the view from up here. Apparently some horrible actress named Brittany Murphy lives next door. My friends are sitting in the living room, I think I heard my name a couple times... We're currently trying to see if Pink Dot delivers right now... Are they closed for Xmas? If they were closed, are they open now? Who will save us up here on this hill?! We need munchies and we need them now!!

I'm going to assume you can relate: Being in a big house with a great view just seems kind of lonesome. It makes me miss people I shouldn't miss, and want to hear songs that are otherwise horrible. So, here is my New Years gift to you:

Make this your mantra, and make sure they play this at your New Years Eve party - wherever you may roam!

BTW if you haven't heard, RIP James Brown.
