I've inundated my friends and family for years with commentaries on everything from foreign currency transactions to the menu at Taco Bell. Some of my commentaries are funny or insightful. Some are me ranting about something I'm annoyed about. All of them come with "Frank's Blog Guarantee" - if you think I've wasted your time with a blog entry, you have the right to kick me in the shins as hard as you want.
Good Bye, Playboy Club - For Now
When I first commented on The Playboy Club on this blog, I talked about how the frequent voice overs from Hugh Hefner provided one more level of distraction in an otherwise busy plotline. I recommended that they get rid of them and keep the focus on the club that he created; not the man who created them.
Strangely enough, by the time the second episodes hit the airwaves, those voice overs were gone. My suspicion is that NBC decided to be cheap and aired the original version of the pilot, which always contains a few things that need to be tweaked. Thus, when the show got better, not enough people knew about it because a lot viewers gave up on the show after the first episode - or sometime even in the middle of the first episode.
I continue to think that if the writing was a bit tighter, the show could be a hit. Unfortunately, we won't get a chance to find our for certain anytime soon because NBC announced this afternoon that they were cancelling the show.
I have to admit that I'm disappointed. The show was getting better as it moved along. I really think that this could have been something special, if the network allowed it to continue.
Oh, well - if I'm lucky, one of the cable networks will pick the show up and run with it.
And if I'm really, really lucky, that network will cast Rachel Nichols or Keira Knightley in this re-launched show. They bring just the right personality to balance some of the current version's rough edges.
Update: I didn't realize this until after I had published this post. However, it turns out that this was my 1,000th post on this blog. I'm just glad that this milestone included the words "Playboy", "Rachel Nichols", and "Keira Knightley."
According to those fun loving, party animals at Google Analytics, an average of one person every day finds my blog as a result of a search for "Supergirl porn". It's all a result of this post on Supergirl from last summer. Anyway, there is no actual porn on my blog (Supergirl or otherwise). However, for the benefit of those who do find this blog as a result of such as search, as well as for the general amusement of everyone else, give you this image below.
Kudos, by the way, go out to Dr. Zaius of the Zaius Nation Blog for finding this gem. I also found his blog via Google.
Photos surfaced on the internet earlier this week of Whitney Port's bikini top suddenly falling off while she was in Miami. She managed to cover herself up (mostly) with her hands, revealing only a little bit of her nipples.
Of course, there just happened to be a photographer nearby when this happened - and Whitney Port just happened to be facing the camera, having covered herself up in the nick of time. Additional photos of the event, by the way, are available here on Egotastic.com.
The trend of bikini a female celebrity's bikini suddenly falling off - and a photographer happening to snap images of it - is something that I wrote about a little over a year ago when Heidi Montag had a bikini incident that seemed a bit too much like a publicity stunt. (Earlier post available here.)
Of course, Whitney Port isn't the only female celebrity to have a bikini top mysteriously fall off in recent days. Vanessa Hudgens, for example, also had a bikini top fall of while she was in Ha…
I was surfing the web last night, looking for more news on Kristen Bell. I came across this post on TMZ.com about Kristen at the beach. They were critical of the photo of her to the left, but admired her in the one to the right.
I don't care what the folks at TMZ say. Granny shades or not. Hair up or down. Kristen Bell looks darn hot.
