Sarah! You look skinny! You should eat a sandwich!

What is Yo Gabba Gabba?
Yo Gabba Gabba is an awesome Nick Jr. show for preschoolers that artfully toes the line between blow-my-brains-hip-and-fun and acid-trip-unmarked-van-creepy.

What celebrities love Yo Gabba Gabba?
All celebrities love Yo Gabba Gabba, especially Brad Pitt, who dressed up as DJ Lance Rock for Halloween.

What can Yo Gabba Gabba teach ME?
Everything. My favorite lessons are "Don't bite your friends," and "Eating noodles is fun." Plus, Elijah Wood taught me how to do the marionette.

I like television, but I LOVE music. Can Yo Gabba Gabba give me what I need, or will it too kill the radio star?
The Aquabats, the Ting Tings, YGG has it all. Biz Markie (Oh, baby, you got what I need, but you say he's just a friend) even teaches you to beatbox! Nope. Not shitting you.

Yep, she guest starred on YGG too. She played Jerri Blank, playing the Tooth Fairy, playing the main character in the next sixth months of my nightmares. It was awesome.

Can you say bangarang?

Corbin Bleu went as Rufio from Hook this past Halloween. I would eat imaginary food with him any day of the year.

Clips of the Day: These are my obsessions...

Aaron Carter, legwarmers, Two Princes. Obsessed.

Is it just me, or did that last part come straight out of N*SYNC's Bye Bye Bye? Nick's gonna be pissed.

Oh, hey, Nancy Sinatra. How did you know I drink RC for breakfast...out of a wine glass?

P.S. I like your white outfit and white house with no furniture. Very futuristic.

Don't break my heart, and I won't break your heart-shaped glasses.

I can't stop laughing at this.

Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the Earth's gravitational pull?

We are living in the future. I know this not because I can check sports scores while flying through the air or because a tiny screen can tell me where I am and how to get home in a myriad of different languages. No, I know we're living in the future because of Lady Gaga. She is everything we always thought the future would be, especially in her new video for Bad Romance.


1. Everyone will wear clothes that are essentially complex seatbelts. (The Fifth Element)

2. Everyone's clothes, surrounding environments, and person-sized capsules will be white. Unless they're another color, in which case they will be gold, silver, or shiny. (Sleeper. Oh, and every other movie that's set in the future. But Sleeper has Woody Allen. And an orgasmatron.)

3. At one point in the future, you will be naked, and your back will be freaky to look at. (The Matrix)

4. Everyone's eyes will be insanely huge. (Wall-E)

5. You will look like a robot. You will dress like a robot. You will sing like a robot. You will dance like a robot. You will have giant rings around you like a robot. (Metropolis)

6. The end of the future will make no sense. (2001: A Space Odyssey)

And finally, Bad Romance...

Today is your lucky day. Forsooth, here are some videos.

In honor of the recent Sesame Street anniversary...

And now, page one of the I Can Do the Frug Literary Anthology...

or A Dance/Techno/House Song That Could Pass As Sappy Teenage Poetry.

What is love
Baby don't hurt me
Don't hurt me
no more

Oh I don't know
why you're not fair
I give you my love
but you don't care

So what is right
and what is wrong
gimme a sign

Oh I don't know
what can I do
what else can I say
it's up to you

I know we're one
just me and you
I can't go on

I want no other
No other love
This is your life
our time

When we are together
I need you forever
Is it love

Baby don't hurt me
Don't hurt me
no more

~ Haddaway ~

Solid gold shit, maestro.

I believe I've already discussed the ridiculousness that is Valentine's Day. Well, here's the trailer.

First of all, why weren't the Taylors Swift and Lautner in that? Secondly, the only part of that video that looks remotely appealing is the Patrick Dempsey/Jennifer Garner pair-up, but my attraction to that couple is really just nostalgia for Lucky Number Seven (look it up). Thirdly, if Julia Roberts is playing Bradley Cooper's mother, I fully intend to knife a bitch.

Valentine's Day will probably be pretty decent but nothing new. The same old jokes, the same old cliched characters, and, obviously, the same old celebrities. Fear not, I have an equally star-stuffed alternative with slightly more promise!

Check out The Romantics instead. It's an independent comedy that's adapted from a novel, and it's about eight college friends who reunite for a wedding. Starring, wait for it...Katie Holmes, Anna Paquin, Josh Duhamel, Jeremy Strong, Malin Akerman, Elijah Wood, and Adam Brody. Yes plz.

Oh, you might want to put this on a post-it to remind yourself...because Valentine's Day will be released in February and The Romantics only begins shooting this week.
