Please To Allow Your Pal TwoBusy To Drop Some 2009 Awesomeness Science Upon You

Mono_Hymn_To_The_Immortal_Wind Greetings, my pretties. "Oh, TwoBusy," you say. "What sharp teeth you have." Right you are, my pretties. All the better to chew up a great big ol' slab of 2009 pop cultural goodness and masticate it into an easily digestible (and nutritious!) list of funtastic stuff you might've missed in the year that is about to be the year that was. Would you care for a drink? Probably not a bad idea. This here is thirsty work. Are we ready? Excellent. Pick up your No.2 pencils... and let's begin.

Sweatpantsmom's Favorite Things of 2009: I'm Going To Party Like It's 1999

Party Recently I heard somebody say, "Celebrate all your favorite things in life." What kind of idiot says a corny thing like that? Normally I'd say someone who'd had too many whiskey sours and just slept with his best friend's wife, but since this is the holidays I started to get sentimental and thought I might do just that - have little soirees centered around some of my favorite things of 2009. Mostly it's because I love throwing parties and it's a good way to get rid of extra food.

A Timely Mention Of A Little Known Show

Images I know people rely on me too be super-current and informed so that's why I'm going to talk about this little-known show I discovered on Showtime called Dexter. I know...I know...where do I get this stuff, right? Well never you mind, a good journalist never reveals his sources and neither do I.  The point is that maybe you've heard of it, maybe you haven't but no matter what, I can bench press like 600 lbs in my dreams.

Rick Springfield to Cameo on Californication

CalifornicationThe third season of Showtime's Californication premiered a few weeks ago and, not surprisingly, Hank Moody's antics have already made for many cringe-worthy moments. Karen is working at her dream job in New York, Hank landed himself a teaching gig at a university after pushing the original instructor right the hell off the wagon, Runkle is trying to get back into Marcy's good graces and the agency industry after his pr0n career and pr0n girlfriend failed miserably, and Becca is navigating the extremely choppy waters of adolescence made even more turbulent by her wacky parents.

Weeds Uncap, Revisited...Because I Want You to Argue with Me

Weeds_lounging2 I'm writing this noon post much later than I should be and much later than I normally do, because I've been fretting over Weeds (and other stuff because I'm not totally shallow) all morning and thinking a lot about the comments from my last Weeds Uncap.

Weeds Uncap

Weeds_lounging2I sat down to watch Weeds last night and found myself feeling kind of sad about it. When I watch a show that I recap for MamaPop, I take rather detailed notes, both about the plot of the episode and any particular quotes or actions that I think are worth pointing out in the recap. And last night, I just couldn't do it.

Weeds Recap

Weeds_lounging2 Whoosh! It's six months after left Nancy left that fateful note for Andy, grabbed Shane, and showed up at Esteban's doorstep pregnant and decidedly freaked out.

Weeds Recap

Weeds_lounging2 Nancy is at a women's clinic with Andy for a check up. While Nancy scrunches her nose at a fellow patient's Egg McMuffin, Andy mutters about how the thing that freaks him out most about women is how our periods sync up in a most wolfish manner. Nancy gently lectures the girl about eating the unhealthy breakfast sandwich and how it can't be good for her baby, but the girl shrugs and says that she's not having the baby anyway. Andy nods knowingly and says, "Ah. A-bo-bo? Hoovertown?" Andy seems like the last person that I would want to have a conversation with regarding my reproductive choices. Well, no, that's not true. Scott Roeder and his arsenal is probably the last person, but Andy's way down at the bottom, that's for sure.

Weeds Recap

Weeds_lounging2 Last week, after Sucio disappeared leaving a bloody trail behind him, Nancy fled with Andy, Shane, and Bitchface and had orders from Esteban to await further information from him. This week, Bitchface is out of the picture, though I don't think we heard for sure if they dropped her off at the airport so she could go home or if she and Nancy got in a fight and she huffed off saying she would just walk home to Oakland or if she was attacked and eaten by dogs. Wherever you are, Bitchface, I hope you're well and I hope we see you again this season because you're kind of fun.
