New Moon News: Volturi Pics

As you might know, I am a slight Twilight fan. By this I mean I enjoyed Twilight (the movie and the book) and loved New Moon. On the other hand, I don't even remember Eclipse , I think they were fighting over Bella in this book, and I struggled to finish the awful Breaking Dawn. My disdain for the other books probably explains my excitement for New Moon.

Well as the subject line shows there a new pics of the Volturi. Check out my faves below and check out the rest at

In this first pic Jane of Dakota Fanning is leading Edward (RPattz) to the Volturi.

Rest in Peace DJ AM

DJ AM or Adam Goldstein was recently found dead in New York. After surviving a plane crash with Travis Barker in South Carolina, he was found in his apartment surrounded by drug paraphernalia. So sad. This is one rough summer for celebrities.

Season 21 of the Simpsons; Season 12 DVD reviews

So, Season 21 of the Simpsons is only about a month away. As you may know many of the descriptions of the seasons episodes are already available on wikipedia or, but above is a pic from the first episode guest starring Seth Rogen. This picture was taken from an MTV article that looks at the references to Comic Book movies that can be found in both the Simpsons and Family Guys upcoming seasons. Homer is cast as Everyman, the hero from Comic Book Guy's new comic book and Rogen is the trainer who whips Homer into shape.

This isn't the first time the Simpsons have covered comic book movies. Remember, the Radioactive Man movie? Exactly. Nevertheless, I can't wait to for the new season!

The DVD reviews of Season 12 are also in. I didn't buy it, but I did look at the reviews I trust they are accurate. gives the DVD 8 out of 10 overall, 7 out of 10 for Video and Presenation, and 7 out of 10 for Languages and Audio. They note that season contains my favorite episode of the Simpsons "The Trilogy of Errors." But overall they believe there is a overall decline in the series by this season. However, the extras make the DVD worth the purchase. Wish I had the cash to buy it. Check out the complete IGN review here. gives the Simpsons DVD a rave review. They t.hink that this season is the just as good as its predecessors. They also think that the extras are incredible and give the viewer a good look into the series. Check out the full review here.

...just got an idea. I forgot that I actually borrowed a season of the Simpsons from the library. I guess I'll have to do the same for this season until I get my money right.

Okay enjoy the countdown to the new Season of America's Favorite Animated Comedy by watching the nightly episodes and buying the DVDs...if you can afford is a recession.

Until next time....Best....Blog....EVER!

The Simpsons Get Africanized; Season 12 DVD; Pop Culture News: Big Brother and the Real World Cancun

Remember back when The Simpsons Movie came out and you could go the simpsonize me website and turn yourself into a Simpsons character? Well if not you can just look at my profile picture to see what it was like. Well now the Simpsons have become Africanized or have been changed in order to look into the typical Angolan family in order to celebrate the Simpsons being shown on Africa's digital satellite television service DStv. They gave Marge dark hair, Lisa braids, Maggie a pointy afro and Bart something like a slanted high top. I love the look. They will obviously keep their original looks in the series. This is the first time that Africa's digital satellite television service DStv and the first time series will broadcast on the African continent. Congrats Africa. I am happy to know that when/if I travel to Africa I will be able to enjoy the Simpsons. That is the only reason I survived studying abroad in London. What do you think of the new look?

In other news, Season 12 of the Simpsons, the best season ever (according to Comic Book Guy), just came out on DVD Tuesday. If you don't have it buy it now! I have yet to purchase any of the DVD sets for the Simpsons, but I plan to in the future when I get a good job and some financial stability LoL.

Pop Culture News
So do you watch Big Brother? Right now season 11 is airing on CBS and I have to say it is the craziest season yet. There was a overzealous player who lied not only to win, but just to tell lies. There were athletes who were controlling the game until America's Favorite Player was given a power (Coup D'Etat) that got rid of the strongest athlete. Next thing you know the athlete's followers were crying as if their evicted friend had just died and one got so fed up and broke soo many rules that the producers had to kick her out. Then during a later competition one of the followers got so drunk she went a drunken and hood tirade. This led to one of the nicest guys in the competition blowing up in anger. Did I mention super mean eviction speeches I mean I would write in more detail, but you're just gonna have to watch the show. Catch the full episodes on

What about the Real World Cancun? Talk about awkward. There is this girl named Jasmine on the show who continually throws herself at a guy who doesn't want her. When she realizes for the umpteenth time that the guy isn't interested, she decides to make moves on his seemingly gay cousin. It is so sad and pathethic. Be prepared to cringe if you watch this show.

Summer of the Simpsons and Big Brother

Wow it has been a while since my last blog post. Since I have to blog from my home, I've found it hard to find time to actually blog. I'm more used to watching the Simpsons as opposed to writing about them at home. At the moment I'm more involved with Big Brother. If your don't watch Big Brother start watching it now on CBS. You may have missed the best parts of the season, but I think the rest of the season should be stellar as well. But anyways as a result of this I never got a chance to write about the "Stark Raving Dad" episode. I'm not sure if I still will ever write it, but check back in the future and you might find it here.

But I'll just write about some recent Simpsons news. The newest development is the some of the casting for this upcoming season. The voices includes Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill Anne Hathaway, Neve Campbell and the late Eartha Kitt. That is some stellar casting. Rogen will guest star during the season premeire as Homer's celebrity trainer. I guess the big guy is going to try to lose some weight once again. Can't wait to see how that works out. The 21st season begins on FOX on September 27th.

For more information about the celebs who will lending there voices check out Entertainment Weekly.
