Top Chef

It didn't hook me as hard as Hells Kitchen did but I think I like it. I'll probably try to do recaps like I did before with HK.
I do like that all the competitors are pros, unlike HK which mostly featured scrubs. It made for entertaining TV but you kinda knew who was gonna end up winning pretty far in advance.
The highlight of the show was the dumbass Irish guy who thought it was a good idea to dunk his finger in a sauce right in front of the chef. Then thought it was an ever better idea to mouth off to said chef after being kicked out of the kitchen. Really smart! Of course he was kicked off.
Hopefully once I know everyones names Ill start recapping.


I imagine that by know you know that Kirby Puckett has died. If not, consider moving out from underneath that rock. I'm still kind of having a hard time getting my head around the fact that my favorite childhood ballplayer is dead. I mean, come on, my favorite childhood ballplayer is dead. Uh, hello, I'm 26! Things like that aren't supposed to happen till I'm 50 or so. I mean, jeez. I know his reputation had kinda, sorta gone downhill a shade what with the infideltiy, the accusations of abuse and assault the robot smuggling ring etc. But he's till the guy that homered to wing game 6 of the '91 World Series and you have to do alot in my mind to erase that.

We half watched the Oscars sunday, flipping back to it during the commercials during, no fooling, Scary Movie 3. Which I'd say was much more entertaining. I was glad to see Crash win for best picture (It was also the only Best Pic nominee I'd seen) and Reese Witherspoon win for Best Actress (Gwens a huge fan and Walk the Line was a great movie). Otherwise, I have little to say. I know every Oscars show is expected to have at least one 'gag me' moment. I just didn't think it would come as fast or as violent as George Clooneys "We actors are freakin' awesome!" speech. Hey George, you're a goddam actor, get over yourself.

I'll have a review up later of the new Bravo show, Top Chef.
