The other day I was chatting with a friend about her newly grown obsession with Parks & Rec. Now, my friend’s an entertainment-enthusiast, but she by no means gets… obsessed. I, on the other hand, do. In fact, I openly recognize, and admit to, my unhealthy and manic infatuation with the UK show, Skins.

Liv

Gen 3, Season 5 ended recently and since its’ absence and since I’m no longer scouring the internet to dl it illegally (shut up i’m going to buy it too…eventually), I’ve decided to take some time to reflect. well, reflect publicly. And, in the form of a list. because at least you like lists. I encourage you to add your lists in the comments. I’m talking to you mom! jk jk my mother doesnt do things for me. (or follow this blog, obvs).*

so here it goes (spoilers obvs):

1. all time favorite episode: Liv, s5

2. best character G1, G2, G3: Cassie, Thomas, Mini.

3. most interesting duo: Mini & Liv.

4. best lovahs: Naomi & Emily

5. best situation: I’m Katie Fucking Fitch. jk but that was awesome. really, probs Emily coming out to Thomo and him giving her his shoes when she was cold.

6. best scene, you know, artistically: Crazy Stalker Fell-In-Love-On-A-Train animation bit that almost made Emily kill herself.

7. most charged scene:  murder rock sex aka the effy camping shroom-fueled rock bashing over head then sex scene.

8. best intro: Freddie skateboarding up to JJ & Cook.

9. most ridiculous scene: thomas vs gangster eating the hot peppers. really close 2nd when cassie RAN AWAY TO NYC (WHAT). followed more closely by the entire American version’s season.

10. best concept from the show: do a lot of drugs

11. best themed party: pajamas with pandora

12. best cast scene: chris’s funeral

& finally, Lucky 13. WHY DID FREDDIE HAVE TO DIE?

* to my mother, if you’re reading this you obviously do more than enough and it was a cheap laugh and i’m an unappreciative daughter and i love you. (e-mail me).

This morning, I purchased this beauty:

This noir-inspired work of genius comes courtesy of Mike Mitchell (you can also find him on twitter @sirmitchell). He did the piece for the Parks & Rec panel at Paley Fest. The poster is a limited edition so if you’re at all interested in purchasing one, I’d do it sooner than later.

If TV’s funniest comedy isn’t your style, Gallery 1988 also has a few other gorgeous pieces of boob-tube inspired art. Check out a few of them below.


Mork & Mindy

True Blood

 


Saved By The Bell

 

You can purchase any of these for me. My birthday is in August. I promise to act surprised.

She liked this one. I much preferred hers.

You know those Groupons for canvas wrapped photo prints? They always seem like a great idea but since I don’t take enough photos or want giant pictures of my friends in my apartment, I never take advantage of them. But then, I saw this:

After years of more Twilight covers than I care to mention, Entertainment Weekly finally got something right.

Someone get the Canvas On Demand people on the phone. I need a 16″ X 20″ of this stat. It will look amazing next to my Ron Swanson Pyramid of Greatness poster.

So cute! I might cry and giggle uncontrollably. And by might, I mean I already did.

This is Kevin Clash. He’s the man behind Elmo. You can see him in this clip, and yet, you can’t. Once I see Elmo, all signs of the man that brings him to life are thrown to the wind.

That’s one lucky baby. This should be the trailer for Being Elmo. Boom Done.

I intended to write about Breaking Bad tonight. It’s been ridiculously wonderful lately. I flipped on the TV for some background noise and came across the season finale to Russell Simmons Brave New Voices

The show follows the 45 teams in the Youth Poetry Slam. These teens are ridiculous! Do you ever watch people that make you feel inadequate? The young people are honest, surprisingly confident, and fearless. Brave doesn’t begin to describe it.

They are some of the best slam poets in the country, age be damned. It’s impossible to watch them without being inspired, learning a thing or two, and challenging a few pre-conceived notions.

Invest an hour. Invest five or six. This show is impossible to describe, but a must see.

Here’s the first episode.
