SyFy Challenges Viewers to Create Their Own Movie

Syfy-logo You guys. This is it. This is our big chance. Last night, DinoShark appeared before me, awash in heavenly light, and said, "Raaaahhh!" And because I operate on a higher plane of existence, one where DinoShark and I dish, I knew that that meant, "Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their made-for-TV cinema!"

A Cease And Desist on Unicorn Meat?! Someone's Been Reading MamaPop

Unicorns  You all know how we feel about unicorns here at MamaPop. We love them. The sparklier, the better. So when ThinkGeek came up with "Canned Unicorn Meat" this writer was torn. I mean, hee, but...Well now they've been served a cease and desist letter.

Silly Bandz Bans?

Silly-bandz  Did you know that Silly Bandz were a thing? Because I've been wearing them in my hair for a couple of months now and I had no idea.  

Of course you did, didn't you? 

Is a five-year old going to cut me for my pig? 

That sounds all kinds of wrong.

NBC's 100 Questions - Why Did I Watch This Show?

OneHundredQuestions So, there I was. It was a hot Thursday night in the good old Midwest and I was bored something fierce. The summertime television schedule had already smacked my face like a pimp looking for his money. I had an unconscious, drooling baby affixed to my chest and the remote was nowhere in sight.  Panicked, I instantly yelled for my four year old to find the remote and neatly place it in my hand. Not tonight. He was already fast asleep in his bunkbed. My last option was the wifey. Nope. No help there either. "I'm in the shower!", she screamed back.

Amalah's Top Thingies of 2009, Hodgepodge Edition

At some point in the list-compiling process, I thought, "Self, I am pretty sure there is more to pop culture than television shows. Please try to diversify." Turns out I spent about 99.99999% of 2009 on the couch, consuming mah culture via the teevee or the computer. One time I went outside and saw a movie! All this, and nothing else, awaits you in the form of a handy numbered list...

Grey's Anatomy Is STILL Not On, But I Got Some Of Dr. Shepherd's New Cologne And It's Liquid Sex

Patrick_dempsey Patrick Dempsey has his own Avon fragrance called Unscripted and I never smelled it because I never got a free bottle. But Avon sent me his second fragrance, Patrick Dempsey 2, and it smells really good. Talk about a lazy name, though. I would've called it McEau de Toilette. I bet Patrick Dempsey was having a bad day and Avon was bugging him about a name and he just barked "PATRICK DEMPSEY 2!"

Friday Combo Platter: Amber's on Nitrous Edition

Friday_combo_platter From Wikipedia: Nitrous oxide, commonly known as happy gas or laughing gas, is a chemical compound with the chemical formula N2O. At room temperature, it is a colorless non-flammable gas, with a pleasant, slightly sweet odor and taste. It is used in surgery and dentistry for its anesthetic and analgesic effects. It is known as "laughing gas" due to the euphoric effects of inhaling it, a property that has led to its recreational use as a dissociative drug.

It also has hilarious effects on email threads.

Spike Jonze Slaps Kanye West

Kanye_west_spike_jonze Well, not really, but in a viral promotion video for a short film collaboration between the two, Jonze answers the eternal question that Rick James reportedly posed to Charlie Murphy one night, long ago, in the China Club. That question, of course, being, "What did the five fingers say to the face?"
