Under the Gunn, or Doctor Who Is Not Really Steampunk

Sorry, but I watch "Doctor Who" and it's not really the best example of steampunk. There are some steampunk aspects but overall it doesn't really fit the bill. But then again most people didn't do steampunk OR avant-garde so there you go. (click for more)

TAR24, Precap, 2/23/14

Welcome back to the Amazing Race!  This time, we get our second round of All-Stars!  And, for the first time, we get to see some of our favorite teams for a third time!  (Toyouke: “Wait.  Are we getting all these people playing three times because CBS thinks we still want to see them? Or because latter seasons have lame casts that no one cares to see again and the only people we remember are the ones that are so annoying we never want to see them again?”)  Well, whether we wanted to see them again or not, here they are, running the race for a second or third time because they were All-Stars / Unfinished Business / Falling Apart / Whatever.  The eleven teams are: (click for more)

Under the Gunn, or, Flannel is Fashion, I Guess

Oh yeah, this is what I remember from "Project Runway". Weird drama, some celebrity I've never heard of, and a win that doesn't make any sense. (click for more)

Under the Gunn, or "Unconventional Materials" Does Not Mean Offer Fabric

So one thing that I found weird, is that I was not aware of how my knowledge of New York Fashion Week was tied to "Project Runway". NYFW has started and I had no idea until it started. Normally I would have been all over it weeks ago to complain about how many decoy collections there would be. (click for more)

Top Chef 2/5/14--"Finale" summary

Previously on “Top Chef”: everyone went to Hawaii, where we discovered Louis had won Last Chance Kitchen which was awesome. The Quickfire was to cook with Spam, which is fun, and even though Nicholas said he hadn’t prepared and should have, he won. Boo. But he didn’t win immunity. Just money. Didn’t stop him from trying to buy immunity later. The Elimination challenge is revealed as a double elimination. Make a dish with only the crops that Polynesians would have brought with them in canoes. Actually I’m making it sound dumb but I like the concept of this challenge. It’s relevant to the location without being a gimmick. Anyway, Nicholas won that also which is sad, and then Nina was second so that means Louis and Shirley were eliminated. Aww. (click for more)
