...and I love a cabaret!

Brigitte here, ready to post after another long, hard day spent at work and a long, arduous evening spent laboring over Qualler's dinner. I've got about 15 minutes before he finds me huddled under the stairs, secretly blogging while he thinks I'm doing the dishes....so here goes!

If there's one thing that says high fashion, it is definitely gargoyles. And, tonight on ANTM, gargoyles apparently means models standing on top of a building dressed in 80s aerobics garb. Now, when I hear the word gargoyles, it only brings to mind one thing: Disney's short-lived animated series that I thought would be really cool after seeing the commercials but was actually
pretty lame but I watched it anyway.


















I remember really thinking this show would be pretty bad-ass, since the preview on my Aladdin VHS seemed so dark and intriguing. Oh well.

At any rate, these models' poses were even less disturbing, and really did not resemble gargoyles at all. This week's episode was even less edgy than last week's, with hardly any real drama and a whole lot of filler (Ex: Tyra and the other panel judges doing a Liza Minelli dance a la Cabaret because the girl who was sent home looks a bit like Liza)


Luckily, the autistic model (Heather) is still in the running, so I'll be coming back for more next week.

In other pop culture news, Dirty Sexy Money reveals that Nate Fis--er, Nick George and his wife Lisa are about as likely to escape the Darling family's problems as Niles and Frasier Crane are to throw a dinner party without any hilarious mishaps! Oh, Darling family, what mess are you going to get yourselves into next?? Seems you can't ever escape becoming your father, Peter Krause! Maybe it's time you explore other acting roles...

Due to the lull in my staple Wednesday evening programs, I managed to see about 10 minutes of the show Things Taken out of the Human Body. Things taken out of the human body included, but were not limited to: a tree branch, a 6 pound tumor (in his face!!!), earth worms, bees, and a cell phone. Pretty good!

My favorite Frasier reruns this week featured the all time favorite Niles and Frasier try to throw a party but nothing goes right and they end up overhearing a friend say that they're odd, then they question their close relationship and fear ending up the town freaks episode, followed closely by the Niles and Frasier are always competing with each other and when they discover their IQ scores from a test taken as children their competition only increases episode.

That's all for tonight. Just remember: life is a cabaret, old chums, only a cabaret, old chums, and I love a cabaret....almost as much as I'm sure to love the Gossip Girl and Dirty Sexy Money PARTY EPISODES scheduled for next Wednesday...stay tuned!

    My favorite Frasier episode of the week was when Bebe wanted Frasier to be in a commercial about nuts, when he himself is a psychologist and the term "nuts" has negative connotations!

    i believe it was called "things removed from the human body," which is only a slightly less ridiculous title than "things taken out of the human body."

    nevertheless, DUDE'S TUMOR WAS HUGE.

    haha, oh yeah...things removed from the human body...i like "taken out of" a little better. i wish we had watched long enough to see how a cell got in there...

  4. Blogger Brigitte | 12:37 PM |  

    *cell phone, not just cell...though i guess that would be a funny thing to remove, hey guys? guys? guys! aw...

    I can't believe you watch Frasier reruns. What's next? King of Queens? Two Guys and a Girl (with or without the Pizza Place)? Boston Common?

  6. Blogger qualler | 1:12 PM |  

    What if they removed YOUR ENTIRE BODY from your body?!?!? Take that, TLC.

  7. Blogger qualler | 1:13 PM |  

    Oh. My. GOD. Pat, how DARE you compare the greatness of Frasier to the mediocrity of The King of Queens, Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place, and Boston Common. You are hereby excommunicated from all communication with The Blogulator.

    Frasier is on a long list- along with David Letterman- of comedy that doesn't bother me, per se, but confuses me. I don't really get where the funny is (no offense). It's kind of sweetly unfunny, like A Prairie Home Companion, and therefore perfect for having on in the background while I cook in my kitchen. Sometimes I hear laughtrack and think, "Wow, Frasier and Niles are at it again," but there's no real need to watch or listen. Reba also falls into this category, although it once had a funny scenario in which Reba gets set up on a blind date with her ex-husband. I swear, the hijinks that ensued. Hil-ar-i-ous.

    I'm sorry....don't understand why Frasier is funny?? IN THE SAME CATEGORY AS REBA??? WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE?!?!?1

    Frasier is funny just like Moliere is funny: it's a classic farce, and it delivers every single time. This is a well-developed and timeless comedic form. Mistaken identity, miscommunication, people being total snobs...it's brilliant! I consistently laugh out loud while watching Frasier, and I am not ashamed to admit that. It's funny, funny stuff.

    i just fall asleep when i watch frasier. i enjoy black frasier much more.

    Alright, first of all I don't believe any comedic form is timeless--farce or not. Anything can and will get stale if you see it too much. Frasier included.

    However, the shows we have compared it to are by far worse. My comment was an exercise in hyperbole.

  12. Blogger DoktorPeace | 6:33 PM |  

    I'm pretty onboard with Nicole here. I feel like I've given Frasier a chance, and, while I don't have anything against it, it does nothing for me. And is it just me, or does it seem like it was filmed in the late 80s or something? At least when I'm watching the Lawrence brothers' aptly titled Brotherly Love I feel like I'm living the 90s.

    You're all idiots.
