If you grew up in the 80’s and had MTV, you’d remember the corny, yet popular, game show “Remote Control”. It was a mix between a game show and sketch comedy.

Former host Ken Ober was found unconscious at his home in Santa Monica. There are no reports as to what caused his death, although his agent stated Ober was recently complaining of “…headaches and flu-like symptoms.”

Here’s a clip below with contestants LL Cool J, Julie Brown, and Weird Al Yankovic

In a recent interview with Reuters Jemaine Clement, one half of the popular musical/comedy duo from New Zealand, hinted that there may not be a season three of their HBO show “Flight of the Conchords”. It is partly due to how much work is involved creating skits and unique songs for the series.

“It very likely might not…(return) it could come back in a shorter season or like a special.”

Clement also stated that he would need to discuss the future of the Emmy nominated show with fellow musician/actor Bret McKenzie. LINK! via Spasifik

Flashback Friday! (Take That To The Bank-Shalamar)

Shalamar has always been a favorite of mine so of course I had to watch TV One’s Unsung series featuring the group. Jody Watley looked as gorgeous as ever not looking a day over 36 and I loved Jeffrey Danel’s international accent.

After watching it, I had their 70’s hit “Take That To The Bank” stuck in my head all day!

Here they are, with original members, Jody Watley, Jeffrey Daniel, and Gerald Brown performing on Soul Train. How could you not dance to this?

Jack Black Should Play Magic Devlin

Posted in Entertainment, Movies, Videos, WTF?! with tags , , , , , , , on November 2, 2009 by TheDiversePurse

Peep the video above for the wonder that is Magic Devlin! I was watching this thinking to myself “Is this guy for real?” I’m still not sure, but he’s entertaining and funny regardless.

From his synthesized music to his ill fitting spandex outfit and his habit of rockin’ out while doing magic tricks, I totally thought this would be an awesome character for Jack Black to play. I’d go see that movie.

In some shots from Rhian’s video “Say How I Feel”, I swear they could be sisters.

Madonna Hearts Glee

Posted in Entertainment, Music, Television, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 23, 2009 by TheDiversePurse

MadonnaGleeEither that or she’s a savvy businesswoman and getting in on the Glee bandwagon while it’s hot. Turns out Madonna has granted the hit show rights to her entire song catalog.

Creator of Glee, Ryan Murphy, hinted at an all Madonna episode in the works for next year.

As a fan of the corny, yet cute, show myself here’s a list of the songs that I think would fit with some of the characters and their storylines thus far:

“Like A Virgin” – Quinn Fabrey – This would be only fitting for her to sing as this snooty, cheerleader who’s President of the Abstinence Club discovers she’s pregnant herself.

“Secret” – Finn Hudson – As Quinn’s boyfriend and assumed baby’s daddy, Finn is still in the dark about the actual sperm donor.

“Express Yourself” – Mercedes Jones – This song has Mercedes written all over it; sassy, bold, and unapologetic.

“What It Feels Like For A Girl” – Sue Sylvester – I know Coach Sue isn’t really a part of the Glee Club, but maybe she could sing in some sort of fantasy sequence. I think underneath that cold, mean, seemingly asexual exterior is a misunderstood kitten.

“Vogue” – Artie Abrams – He’s awesome at doing the same dance routines as the other members while in his wheelchair. It would be cute to see them stay still and let Artie do his thing.

“Human Nature” – Kurt Hummel – With his friends and father supportive of him since confirming that he’s gay, this should be a perfect song for the now unstoppable, more confident Kurt.

“Sorry” – Rachel Berry – Miss Overachiever caught in a love triangle with Quinn and Finn is probably practicing her routine for this song right now.

“Angel” – Emma Pillsbury – This uptight, germaphobe could be shown singing this while lighting candles at her Will Schuester alter (you know she has one). LINK!
