Simon’s Cat: TV Dinner

So there were ice-cream shooting cows and rabbit-like animals dancing. This time it’s the British Animation Award winning (for best comedy) ‘Simon’s Cat‘ brought to you by Tandem films director Simon Tofield. A hungry cat resorts to increasingly desperate measures to gain its owner’s attention. (All you cat owners out there will understand).

Ugly Betty: The Musical

Rumors are floating around that ABC’s fun and over dramatic TV show Ugly Betty might be hitting Broadway in the near future. Michael Urie, who plays the gay assistant Marc says “They do want to do an “Ugly Betty” musical, a full-on Broadway musical, but it’s all hush-hush. I think it would be great, and they should use the cast from the show. I think we would all do it, although we maybe don’t dance and sing as well as professional singers and dancers. I think it would be fun for us to do it for a while, and then they could get real people in. They definitely want to do an episode that is a musical one, but then they want to do a full stage show. I think it’s a great idea. It would definitely work.”

Sounds like a bunch of fun eh?

Karl Lagerfeld Appearing in Grand Theft Auto

It’s just been announced that the designer/photographer will be playing a role in the newest installment of Grand Theft Auto, where he’ll DJ on air at the game’s K109 The Studio station.

According to WWD “Players can pick from multiple radio stations for the soundtrack, ranging from licensed songs to new ones. Lagerfeld picked his favorite electronica and dance music and peppered the selection with some of his rapid-fire commentary. ‘They had written a politically incorrect dialogue,’ the designer said. ‘I loved it, [particularly] in a time when everybody wants to be so politically correct when they talk.’ He didn’t have to dig too deep to find his music selection. ‘Music is part of the life of fashion, too,’ he said. ‘Through the famous sound stylist Michel Gaubert, I’m very much ‘au courant’ and know what’s going on.'”

Girl Fight: DOA vs Final Fantasy

Monty Oum, a digital art group, is launching its series named “Dead Fantasy.” It includes the girls from the hip RPG series “Final Fantasy” as well as the girls from the 3D fighting game series, “Dead or Alive.” In this movie, you can see the girls from both games try to battle each other out (with the chicks from DOA as a team against the chicks from FF series).

Here’s what Monty said, “First thing I usually decide on when I make a movie is the “why is this cool?” And as far as this movie goes, the coolest part about the movie is how it ends. Which is what you’ll see after watching it, and why I’m really REALLY excited about getting started on Dead Fantasy II-V. But more on that later.”

So you like the first episode of Dead Fantasy posted above and longing for more? Here’s the second episode:

This is WE tv, totally high school

Coming to WE tv, “High School Confidential” stars 12 girls and it’s all about their four-year high school lives. Apparently one was pregnant, one was diagnosed with a brain tumor, one was anorexic…etc…

Why only girls anyway? As if they assume high school boys problems aren’t “interesting” enough. What about that fat kid? That nerd? That closeted gay guy? Hmmmm maybe that’s what they are shooting now. After this HSC there’ll be an HSC- Boys Only edition

So who might watch this?

1) Parents – Apparently the creator of the show is also a mother, so it’s targeting audience like herself

2) High School students- As they can relate most

What about the others? I don’t think the show would be able to draw a huge amount of audience from other groups. My first reaction to this was “This is totally high school”

High School Confidential premieres Monday March 10 at 10/9c on WE TV

Hey Paula, the 90’s called. They want you back.

I’m not saying that Paula Abdul’s come back song/video is bad. Yet a judge on American Idol would say, “Dance like there’s no tomorrow” lacks a certain WOW factor. The singing is alright, the choreography is good, but it’s not sizzling hot. It probably gonna do alright in terms of record sales and charts but I don’t see this going to the top. And Randy? Oh please, he just didn’t fit. I’m sure this would have done a lot better if it’s released in the 90’s though.

To be brief, it’s not bad. But one would expect a lot more as she’s now a judge on American Idol. This classic Paula Abdul is not bad, but she’s just giving us what she has been offering since the 90’s.
