The Real World's Return to New Orleans Reminder That The Real World Used To Be Good

Real World Logo MTV's The Real World's next season, it's 24th (!), will premiere June 30th and returns to New Orleans, the locale for it's 9th season. The latest Big Easy incantation follows a low-rated Washington season that tanked despite trying to piggyback on the political enthusiasm of young people following the 2008 presidential election. "What our audience wants is. . . . stories that relate to them. They don't want esoteric discussions," franchise creator and executive producer Jon Murray told the Washington Post on Monday. Apparently they're going back to boozing and humping.

Miley Cyrus' Camel Toe (I Was Going to Be More Subtle About It, But Why Beat Around the Bush)

Miley-cyrus I am going to be very up front and honest and confess that I am irritated by Miley Cyrus. I don't mean her personally, of course, because who of us even knows who that is. I mean her celebrity-making-the-news self. Also, I am feeling pretty cranky, which makes me even more prone to Miley-related irritation, so, bear that in mind when I show you the latest in my personal list of yucky Miley Cyrus moments...

Die Hard 5: Die Really Super Freaking Hard

Diehard-john-mcclaneJohn McClane has terrible luck. First he went to L.A. and Hans Gruber took his Christmas Party hostage, then he is flew out of Washington D.C. and terrorists take Dulles hostage, then he was in New York and Hans Gruber's brother Simons tracked him down and messed with him, then he got mixed up with Homeland Security and had to help them save the United States from internet terrorists.

You would think John McClane would retire.

The-Hills-2010 So I watch The Hills.  SO WHAT?  It's not like I'm proud of it or anything.  It's not like I like the show so much that I followed one of it's spawn across the country and now also watch them every week in The City.  SO WHAT if I did?  It's for research, is what it is.  Yes.  And this research has shown me that The Hills is a really, really stupid show.
