Beyonce, meh!

Okay, I know I’m digging up old dirt, but for the first time today I watched the video for Beyonce’s single “Single Ladies.” I don't listen to her stuff normally, so I haven't seen the video until today.

And honestly, what is the big deal about it? I mean it’s a very mediocre video. There are some cool light and color changes, but all the choreography in it is just not very good. I felt a lot of it didn't fit the song well at all.

I love minimalism, but this is a different story.

QATFYG: What is the big deal about Beyonce and her video?

Beyonce : Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)

  1. I watched the video for the first time just last week... and I felt the same way. Not that great. And the song is just... eh. As far as I can tell, the only reason it won any awards is because it lacks the "bling" that is typically featured in so many videos in that genre...

  2. IS THIS A JOKE? The song is absurdly catchy, dances are sexy and mega (stolen or not.)

    I just... I just don't know what else to day.

  3. Jason:
    I have to disagree. I don't find the dances very sexy. overall i didn't like most of the dance moves. u kno there are some sexy people in the vid of course.

    But it's weird saying this as a straight man, but Beyonce has the worst taste when it comes to shoes. Anybody else see the vid for crazy in love? mmmmmmmmhmmmmmmmmmmm

  4. Not to beat a dead horse, but I think Kanye said it best when he belligerently shouted: "BEYONCE HAS MADE ONE OF THE GREATEST VIDEOS OF ALL TIME... OF ALL TIME!"

  5. that's what got me to watch the video. thanks kanye, you silly prick.
    i finally got around to it yesterday, and i wanted to see what the big deal was....and i can't see it. all i liked was how they used simple black and white colors effectively. the rest of it was just mildly artistic. NOT TO MENTION THE SHOES!!

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

No Time to Fuck: The Goldfrapp Essay

Konnichiwa! This is Irina Cummings and I'm here to discuss one of the most brilliant, innovative, and creative artists in the entire history of mankind: Goldfrapp – or as I like to call them , GODfrapp – the fantastique, highly inspirational, and sometimes criminally overlooked electronic music duo from London consisting of Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, whose godly music has certainly influenced the vast majority of today's synthpop ladies, including Lady Gaga, Little Boots, La Roux, Annie and Florence + the Machine (not electro but still worth your while). They're primarily known for their mind-blowing music (which have spanned pretty much every style of electronic music – and some non-electronic as well), their abstract, sexually ambiguous – at times forthright – lyrics which are often not gender- specific , and their elaborate shows, not to mention the amazing visual aesthetics of their work, conjuring images that masterly complement

An Open Letter to the Actress: Milena Govich

Dear Milena Govich, Hey, how are you? What is up? Well, I assume you might get 5-7 fan letters a week, but I hope the glitter on my envelope stood out to you. In all seriousness, I have not been the most loyal fan of your filmography, but in the opening credits of the 2006 show, “Conviction,” I got to see you in your underwear. Ever since then, I have been one of your most active online stalkers (not a crime in all states I think). In the next letter, I promise to include an underwear photo for you, so we'll be even. Milena, I remember even back to the days when you worked on one of those other 200 Dick Wolf projects you did...what was the name of that show? “Law and Order.” Yes, that was it. You made history as playing the first female lead detective on the “Law and Order” original franchise for your role as Detective Cassidy. However, I will have to note your performance was strongly tainted when Chevy Chase guest-starred and gave you the nickname, “Detective Sugar-Tits.” At leas
