Advertising Fail WTF

So I'm browsing around and I find this commercial on YouTube. It shows African American women in a salon and one is getting a weave.. My question is..Why just Black Women?

Why not show our Caucasian/Hispanic/Asian counterparts getting 'weaved up'(and we all know they do)? Simple.. They don't want to. I was appalled actually. This was aimed at African Americans(Iguess trying to reach theirt 'target audience'. To me, it promotes negative stereotypes that all BW wear weaves and have major attitudes. I find it funny that in this world where it is acceptable for non-BW to enhance their features (rhinoplasty, tanning, breast augmentation, etc.), that BW cannot do the same. Don't get me wrong, I love to change my style as much as the next woman, but seriously..Why not incorporate other ethnicities? This is an advertising FAIL!

The Week In Review

This is the week(or weeks) in review!

Last week, geekdom reached popular high lever as the 2009 Comic-Con was the place to be! Fans of Twilight saw more clips from this winter's New Moon. And I must say, it looks quite promising. I will say that I was not a fan of Chris Weitz after seeing The Golden Compass but, my opinion is slowly changing.

Also on tap was The Doctor Who panel *sighs*. This panel included David Tennant, Eros Flynn, Julie Gardner and Russel T. Davies. I have a lot of respect for Russel and the crew. They revised and continued the story about a 900 year olf time lord from Gallifrey and brought the show back in a huge way. I am also saddened because this is David's final series as The Doctor, and according to reviews of the snippet shown for The End Of Time, it's going to be one hell of a send off!!

Fans also got to see previews of upcoming films such as Jonas Hex and The Book of Eli. Personally speaking, I'm looking forward to seeing The Book of Eli. :)

I also saw the interview clips from the New Moon panel and of course, I am wondering why doesn't Summit get Kstew some interviewing lessons! When I was in college, they made us take interviewing lessons so that we would be prepared for job interviews. Back in Hollywood's hey days(before actors could negotiate their own contracts & were the property of the studios), they prepared their stars for interviews. And as usual, Kstew comes off as a snobbish, un-interested bitch!

Seriously!! We all know she's been filming The Runaways with Joan Jett looming over her with detailed intimidation over her shoulder but, that is no excuse to come off so uncouth during interviews! This isn't the first time I picked up on this and as we can see, it won't be the last.
I'm all for sarcasm and humor! Seriously, I am.. But if I am running press for a movie(regardless of the built-in fan base), I am still going to be excited and glad my behind is even a part of the franchise....

Speaking of franchise heart-break...

There has been a lot of upset this week as we learned that Rachelle Leferve has been replaced.

And who takes her place???

Former M. Night muse, Bryce Dallas Howard. BDH is the daughter of Opie Taylor/Richie Cunningham/Cocoon man/Award winning A-List director, Ron Howard. Personally, I think this is a foul move on the part of Summit.

From what I gather, Summit knew before-hand of Rachelle having a 10 week shoot in Europe for another movie. I cannot see how this would be a problem, especially since schedules were worked around for Cam Gigandet & Elizabeth Reaser. I think Eclipse director David Slade had some input on the departure. The sad thing is that this is very reminiscent of when they were going to recast Jacob Black... But the fans prevailed and Taylor is STILL Jacob Black. Personally, I couldn't see anyone else as him..(Sorry Michael :( ).

And this goes the same for the character Victoria. I could'nt see the character being portrayed by anyone else. When the original Albus Dumbledoor from Harry Potter passed away, they HAD to recast. But in this situation, it is about money and a name...

...A name to bring some sort of celebrity presence to Eclipse. Even if that name only fits the character's red hair....

As many fans know, Rachelle has been one of the most beloved cast members from the series. She is, from what I was told, is very gracious and kind to the Twilight fans. She knows that without the built-in fan base, they would'nt have made it past the first movie. Even her tweets on Twitter are nice!!

It is a major blow for the fans.. But, has Stephenie Meyer weighed in her opinion of the recast? We shall see..

Whose Your Caddy, Daddy?

So, I'm up late cause of my wicked insomnia and I ended up watching 'Whose Your Caddy?'. This movie stars Sherrie Sheppard(The View), Big Boi (Outkast, Idlewilde) and that weird guy from Ferris Bueller's Day Off(you know, the teacher who Jennifer Grey maced..). So, as I get past the part about the lawyer sent to the guy to bribe him so he won't join the all male/all Caucasian club and guess who I spy???

Twilight dead hunk(James)/DILF...Cam Gigandet!! lol

A bit skinner and playing golf! I saw the movie before and though ooh he's hot.. This was before Twilight of course. And so I just had to blog about this cause it's totally funny. The movie isn't really funny, but it has moments. I'd reccommend Good Luck Chuck and Knocked Up. That was actually not too bad. LOL

But anywhoo, if you have satellite or cable, check out The Movie Channel (Showtimes sister channel) On Demand and watch it.. Cam doesn't show up until about 25-30 minutes into the movie :)

Also, for my 100Monkey fans, I also saw Bratz..*rolls eyes* OMG that movie was CRAP! Seriously, I get the whole friends theme, but really.. This movie is for girls under 13 who have those big headed dolls! I'd rather watch HSM3 again....But as I was about to say, 100Monkeys member Jerad Anderson plays a jock in the film. I was cracking up laughing because he has this goofy look on his face as his character gets a C+ after being tutored by one of the Bratz girls. Hehe..

That's the insomnia round up..lol

Last Airbender Pics!!

Here are the latest pics of the principle cast of M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender. As you know, the film is based on the highly rated and loved Nickelodeon series Avatar: The Last Airbender

(Team Sokka and Iroh!!)

Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire, Skins) as Prince Zuko
Jackson Rathbone (Twilight, New Moon) as Sokka
Nicola Peltz (Deck The Halls) as Katara
Noah Ringer as Avatar Aang

I don't know about anyone else, but I am excited to see how M. Night takes on the series. Being a fan, I am completely vested and hope that this will be a good film. Lord knows we don't need anymore animated show to screen failures (Street Fighter anyone???)

I Wonder, Wonder Who....

You all are probably wondering why the lack of Rob/Kstew coverage regarding their other projects... Well, it is because it isn't really anything new or different that I can post as of late. And I refuse to post gossip! Everyone in the fandom has been posting pics and things and almost really look the same. So in my infinite wisdom (laughs), I decided not to post. But I have been working on other projects so do stay tuned!

But in other news, I'm planning a trip to MI! Since I am not able to start my classes at AADA (which btw started today :( ), I am road tripping it!

On August 15th, I will be attending the Spencer Bell Legacy show in Aurburn Hills, MI. Bands include Tin Tin Can, The Stevedores and 100Monkeys! There are two shows that day. An all ages at 2pm and 21+ at 7pm. Tickets are on sale now at Callahans.

Am I excited, yes!

I also get to see my peeps and hang out for which is sure to be a fucktastic event!

I love spreading the word about Spencer and his music! He left such a impact on those who knew him and his music is just awesome! Spencer passed away in 2006 from Adrenal Cancer. This cancer is rare, but with help, we can find a way to beat it down! It is very deadly and once caught, the survival rate is slim, and there is very little awareness regarding this aggressive form of cancer.

If you are on Facebook, join the cause and let others know about it!
