Remember Dullhouse, the cute paraphrased name I chose to confer my thoughts on the new Joss Whedon series, Dollhouse? Well, after several shows the series is beginning to take shape – and though not as erectifying as the shape of co-star Dichen Lachman – is at least becoming interesting.
By the way, I’m not sure if its DYE-chin or DITCH-en but wouldn’t it be suggestively awesome were it pronounced DYKE-in’ ? The two dolls Sierra (Lachman) and Echo (Dushku) discovering new “funny feelings” in the shower would be an … intriguing character development. Ah, the mysteriously seductive name pronounciations of Tibetan-Australian hotties.
Rib and Jarryl discuss with me the fate of the nigh extinct female rapper. Is rap to misogynistic to represent many ladies? Not enough young talented girls willing to whore themselves? Must a young actress release one album to get started in acting … or dancing? The answers to such questions make me wanna SCHOOP!
NBC has produced a new culinary competition reality show – The Chopping Block – for its line up and is advertising it to be similar to Hell’s Kitchen (HK) on FOX with a highly skilled British asshole being the main judge. This time we have uber chef Marco Pierre White: first British chef to get three Michelin stars (a big deal in restaurants), star of UK Hell’s Kitchen, former teacher of Gordon Ramsey (like Obi Wan to Ramsey’s Anakin, but with the lava damage limited to the face) and weird food guru that speaks in fortune cooking maxims.
“If you want to run a restaurant … you must put your balls on the table”
“Appearing on “The Tonight Show,” the president [Barack Obama] told host Jay Leno he’d been practicing at the White House’s bowling alley but wasn’t happy with his score of 129. Then he rolled a gutter ball by quipping: “It was like the Special Olympics or something.
“The audience laughed, but the White House quickly recognized the blunder. “
So, the first quarter 2009 G. W. Bush Award for Socio-Political Stupidity goes to his otherwise smooth, caring and messianic successor Barack Obama. Some of you may feel crestfallen that your incarnation of the perfect leader has been tarnished by his own casual insensitivity. The cognitive dissonance is causing your mind to severely twist itself inside out like an ugly girl trying to get attention.
Before you burn your “Yes, We Can!” T-shirts or take a cheese grater to the Obama tattoo, da Dominion saves your peace of mind with this simple Truth: retardation is taken too seriously.
I’m joined by Rib, Jarryl, Wordsmythe and Chocolate Lady Lira to discuss the upcoming nuptials of the latter two and dealing with committment in the long term. The Smythe gives us some free promotional advice involving sexual bartering with bounty hunters. Rib and Jarryl defend wacko Jacko, again. Then, we wonder at the ennui of Bill Maher’s new season: post-election political comedy crisis.
So, this month wizards of the coast released the much-anticipated Player’s Handbook II for their new fourth edition line of Dungeons and Dragons. I’m sorry it took so long for me to review, but in these times it’s hard enough to find two dimes to rub together – let alone three hundred and eighty one to buy this “next level” in D&D.
Thank Avandra for her creation of Coinstar; plus whichever lesser deities invented loose pants pockets and couch cushions.
Your continued support and readership of da Dominion being a testament to your keen perceptions and lack of stupidity, it may be safe to assume that you’ve noticed some changes to the blog recently. Alas, in time changes occur in all of our lives, signifying growth, and it would be foolhardy to try to retard them:
Let us know what you think. Comments are currently …. weird, so go straight to the horse’s ear with your input by getting me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You could also grab me on Twitter to scream at your Dominus about the horrific changes we’re making, perhaps keeping them from occuring.
Regardless of the means, we appreciate your continued patronage and opinions.
Your ever-loving Dominus and informer of awesomeness,
