chickens

chickens is a british tv show about 3 men who stayed at home instead of going to fight world war 1. i usually dont watch shows over & over but decided to watch this one again because it was so cute & funny. jonny sweet is SO talented & its a shame he isnt doing more(he was completely wasted on that stupid show "loaded").

the witches 1990 vs 2020

 i LOVE roald dahl & jim henson but for whatever reason ive never seen this movie. anjelica huston is such a bad betch plus bubble plays her homegirl so i'm confused why the witches isnt considered classic camp. the only negative i'm seeing is the lead boy is so untalented & cringeworthy. i can see why his career was so short. i'm sorry but the grand high witch was goals until the end. anjelica left some huge shoes to fill & although i like anne with an e, idk if she can pull this off. still confused why people make such a big deal out of hocus pocus but not this movie but ok...................


i like how they set this new one in 1967,the fashions are going to be spectacular. on imdb, lots of white people are complaining that the child is black(because of course they are). chris rocks intro was pretty funny but the cgi looks cheap. anne with an e has a very bad accent. she isnt scary or sexy, just annoying. this one was closer to the book so that was a plus but anne hathaway really is terrible. replace her with anjelica huston & this wouldve been a great movie.

what is the game plan amerikka?

 

what is the point of marching for black lives matter when you still uphold white supremacy? what is the point of  denouncing trump & voting for biden if you're still racist? what is the point of dating a black person if you are still afraid of living next to a black person? just because you had 1 black friend in elementary school, it doesnt make you not a racist. i'm just not understanding what the point of all this acting is. amerikka is a racist country & the majority of its people are racist (despite whatever lie you may tell yourself to sleep better at night). why not just live in your truth & say how you really feel?

i dont know what is going on now. the majority of people i see looting & rioting "for black lives matter" are white & its weird to me how the media is trying to frame this as black people being violent criminals. i KNOW y'all dont care about us, its been proven over & over for the last 400 + years. all this rioting & looting has more to do with boredom & neanderthal genes & less about what is best for black people. i had something profound to say but i'm tired & y'all dont hear me so.................

my newest guilty pleasure: a series of unfortunate events

even as a child, i HATED childrens books/movies/tv shows, so its rare if i watch anything for kids(i even skipped rupaul's "AJ and the Queen" because it starred a child). i ended up watching lemony snicket's a series of unfortunate events because:

1 jim carrey
&
2 we are still in coronavirus lockdown.


there is this one joke where the baby babbles & jim says something like "i'm sorry,i dont speak monkey" or some such nonsense. for months now, i think of it & laugh like a crazy person.its a very funny & cute goth childrens movie.i highly recommend it plus the tv show "a series of unfortunate events" starring doogie howser. the tv show is pretty slow until they introduce esme squalor & carmelita spats. jim was a better count olaf but the kids in the tv show are a billion times better than the movie ones. plus tv klaus baudelaire is on "the great"(his sex scene had me shook until i googled he's an adult who only looks 12).

mulan 1998 vs 2020 review

 i'm pretty sure i've never seen mulan.i hated childrens movies even as a child & i dont really fw disney. the grandma is the coolest character & mushu is annoying. i wonder if they asked eddie murphy to act like a stereotype or was that his idea? its a very cute story with a great theme but i wish there was more scenes of the women being treated less than before she became a soldier. idk how i feel about all the drag queens in this movie. was disney trying to tell us something?

in the new one, mulan has a sister instead of a talking dragon & a jewish grandma. her dads wig is john travolta level bad. it looks like its going to slide off if he moves too fast. i'm glad my girl li gong is playing a bad betch instead of the mom. this new mulan isnt super pretty but also doesnt look like a man. 

most of the men are wearing those horrible wigs.i know disney couldve afforded something better than that. plus the love interest isnt even attractive. who was asking for this? they spent a lot of time & effort & this remake isnt a better movie.if anything, its worse because its boring & there are no songs. disney has a LOT of nerve charging $30 for this mess.

friday fvckery: that time i had a date with the famous guy but had no idea he was famous

this happened a billion years ago & i am drunk off four lokos(as one does) so you will have to excuse me. :-)

anyhoo,i see this guy on a dating website & he says his name is "josh"(or something). josh is GORGEOUS & i have an invitation to a beachfront mansion party so i invite him as soon as we match.i normally do a background check before meeting strange men but i guess i must've skipped that due to time limits/hotness.

we meet up at his apt so he can drive us both to the mansion. his apt is in a VERY expensive part of town & before he's said something like he moved to la to take care of his dad & his dad moved in with him, etc.we get in his car & it super expensive & brand new. i assume the car/apt is actually his dads & he's lying(i live in hollywood & ive met plenty of young millionaires before so i have no idea why my first instinct was that his dad was the rich one).

i showed up at least an hour late & he was wearing clothes that looked like they had been slept in. his teeth were covered in "cheese" like he hadnt brushed them in a week.i shouldve left but we went to the party.he said about 5 words the entire time & i went home.

i had always wanted to see "canadian tv show"(not the name, obviously) & had it in my netflix queue for years.a week after the date,i decide i have time.turns out "josh" was the leads boyfriend on the show.i'm 98% sure he gave me a fake name & that was the actor i went out with.i disguised his name only because he isnt worth talking about, its just a funny story i remembered while drunk {insert shrug emoji}

forgotten tv show pilots: coming to america


coming to america is one of my favorite movies of all time & i'm way too excited for the sequel.its crazy wesley snipes auditioned for this role(& lost) but is now in "coming 2 america". i've never been a fan of tommy davidson so i can already see why fans would not want to watch this. he isnt funny & his impressions are lame. tommy blamed the failure on a white director/writer, the network showing it at night on july 4th, plus the fact that eddie murphy refused to help. it's a typical stupid sitcom with horrible accents & unfunny impressions every 5 minutes.i can see why eddie decided to let it flop vs it being a hit & overshadowing the movie.

forgotten tv shows: bill and ted's excellent adventures 1992

the year before this was made they had an animated version of bill and ted's excellent adventures & when that was cancelled they decided to make a live action version. why? i have no idea. i remember watching the cartoon & HATING it as a child but i had no idea this tv show existed before a couple of months ago.

its a remake of a remake. i can already tell this is going to be cringe & i should be drunk before starting. obviously keanu reeves & alex winter cannot be replaced(& these fug actors are pretty annoying with their exaggerated impressions) but i did laugh a couple of times. instead of going back into history, the phone book goes into fictional places & comic books(which is dumb & i can see why the show failed). you cant improve the original bill & ted's, hence why all the sequels/shows were bad. this was ok, not a complete waste of time

an olive branch

i didnt read this novel but you can.¯\_(ツ)_/¯ . i didnt care then & i dont care now. y'all can stop with the fake apologies, now


Re: An apology and extending an olive branch. Hi Dallas, I hope you're doing well. This is Lacey from Rock of Love. I'm probably the last person you want to hear from, but I want to take a moment to apologize to you, and extend an olive branch. I'm going to send this, and then write more to you...
As I said, I first would like to start out by giving you an apology. I know that I annoyed the crap out of you on the shows, and at times, really made you upset and angry. I want to take this moment to say "I'm sorry" to you, and to accept responsibility for any pain I have caused you. That was never my intention. I always thought you were, and are, a strong, confident, and "bad ass" woman. When I was on the Vh1 shows, I was very much intentionally playing the "villain" character, with encouragement from the producers. I knew it would get me far in the game (on both shows), and I knew it would make for funny, entertaining television. The reason I chose people like you and Jes to give "a hard time" to, was because I knew that each of you were strong women who could handle it, and could handle me. I knew you were tough and confident, and I knew that of the two of us, I was going to come across as the "bad guy".
Your name has come up quite a few times on the podcast, and I will let you know that nothing bad was ever said about you. If anything, I describe you as being "an incredible adversary" to me. You were such an iconic character, and an integral part of those shows! Not only do I think that, but the fans are well aware of it, too. Fans of the Vh1 shows and fans of the podcast keep asking over and over, "When's Dallas coming on?" You are really important to a LOT of people.... maybe more than you even know.(?)
I was hoping, at the very least, I can talk to you over the phone, so that I can give you a proper apology, (apologizing over text is cheap). I also want to listen to what you have to say to me with an open mind. My hope is that maybe enough time has passed and that maybe you and I can mend this, and hopefully be on friendly terms... or at least be cordial.
The energy and vibe of the podcast is very different from that on Rock of Love. On the podcast, it is all about positivity. If you have your doubts, then I invite you to ask Sam, Brandi M, and Big John about their experiences on the podcast. It is important to me that everyone comes across in the best light possible, because I feel that it is a direct reflection on me, and on the podcast. The fans of the podcast are incredibly kind as well, to all of my guests. My guests are welcome to promote any projects, charities, products, etc, that they may be working on, and each episode of the podcast averages over 10,000 views.
I would love to have you on, as a guest, if you would be open to it. But first, at the very least, I am hoping you will allow me to call you on the phone, so that I can listen to anything that you have to say to me, and apologize for hurting or angering you. I do think you're a good woman. I mean that. I don't reach out like this, to people who I don't respect, and I do have respect for you.
Thanks so much for reading this. I appreciate your time.
I wish you all the best, Lacey Sculls

❤ I hope you see this. ❤

eta: to all the racists in my inbox How the concept of forgiveness is used to gaslight women. you can also replace the word women with "black people" & it still works.i was going to write a separate post about that but most racists are too dumb to even understand it
