From the Mouths of Idiots
In the time it took Hope and Ciara to have a pizza delivered, good old John Robichaux was able to fly from New Orleans to Salem. I really hope that pie was free!
And you’ve gotta love Drake Hogestyn for being able to deliver a line like, “My mother tried to kill me today” with all the consternation of someone reporting that they got a parking ticket. Eduardo was all, “That sucks, man.” What do you think it would take to get these people to just stay the hell home after one of these rough days? Though I guess if you live in a world pizza delivery takes six hours, you might brave the three local restaurants on the worst of days, too.
Oh! And Basic Black is going to capitalize on the momentum of the New Year’s Eve fashion show, which took place 18 days ago last night, with a photo shoot that they’re certain will land a magazine cover.
I’m no Anna Wintour, but I’m pretty sure the way it works in the magazine world is not “Hey, we took some cool photos. You’ll put them on your cover, right?” Not even when the periodical you’re targeting seems to be High School Formals Quarterly.
I don’t know how the actresses playing the Basic Black execs got through all the gushing about the fashions and the photos without lighting themselves on fire and running screaming out of that soundstage.
You know what? I’m just going to be grateful that Nicole took off that damned coat and that the photographer didn’t proclaim, “Is that a coat owned by the late, great Daniel Jonas? Let’s put that in the photos!”
Also, I watched Friday’s episode on YouTube because it still hadn’t been posted on NBC.com by 3 pm Pacific time on Saturday (thanks to reader Shea for the tip!), and I discovered a fun new game. YouTube has a feature that provides captions… by using some sort of audio-identification system.
Like in the scene above, where Belle was saying something like “…blackjack and I lost, so I just charged it to the room.” They more or less got it, right? (God knows I hate Belle enough without having to hear about her “discharge,” ugh.) I might start watching all the episodes this way. I’m sure the automated captions make about as much sense as the actual dialogue, anyway.
