Taylor Swift on SNL

I found this article this morning and I am so pumped about watching this. I love her and she is gonna be great!!!!

Check this out!!

Taylor Swift Spoofs Kanye West Incident

In’SNL’ Promo

‘Kanye West just called — he thinks Beyoncé should host instead,’ Bill Hader says in the ad.

In case anyone was wondering if Taylor Swift is going to go there when she hosts “Saturday Night Live” this week, the answer is yes. The superstar isn’t afraid to poke some fun at Kanye West’s now-infamous VMA stage-crash.

In a promo shot Tuesday, the singer and “SNL” castmember Bill Hader put their spin on the encounter.

281x211Standing in a 30 Rock corridor, the promo opens with Hader on his cell phone while Swift says, “Hey, I’m Taylor Swift, and I’ll be the host and musical guest this week on ‘SNL.’ ” As she completes her line, Hader gets off the phone and tells the star who he was talking to. “Whoops, Kanye West just called. He thinks Beyoncé should host instead,” he said. “Funny joke, right?”

Swift rolls her eyes and whispers to herself, “Wow.” Hader then awkwardly says, “Good times,” before walking off the set whispering to himself, “Hader.” The two share a laugh after they complete the sketch.

In an interview with MTV News before she went off to shoot the promo, she said nothing was off-limits this weekend. “I want to look nothing like myself,” she said. “I told all the writers, ‘Don’t count anything out.’ I want to go completely, 100 percent in. I don’t want to be halfway involved. Just because I have a lot of things to do as far as being musical guest and host doesn’t mean I don’t want to live up to my full hosting demands.”

Isn’t that great?? hahahahahahaha Can’t wait!!

Random Video Of the Week

I have gotta say that I am absolutely obsessed with classic comedy.  Shows like “I Love Lucy” “The Facts of Life” “All In the Family” “Three’s Company” “Carol Burnett” and “Mama’s Family” are all what I consider classics.  Oh and “Cheers”  They are so amazing.  It is sitcoms that have been one of my biggest inspirations and goals for m acting career, because they are so much fun and you just have the opportunity to make people laugh which is so great.

So this week I am taking a blooper from one of the classic “The Family” skits on “The Carol Burnett Show”  These skits eventually turned into the spin-off “Mama’s Family” starring Vicki Lawrence.

This scene is a classic blooper that I could probably watch a million times and still laugh every single time.  Tim Conway will not allow the scene to continue until he finishes his story.  The punch line is delivered by none other than Vickie Lawrence which finishes out the entire thing!!

Just watch and be amazed!!

Whip It – Starring Drew Barrymore, Ellen Page, & Landon Pigg

Ok so I am pumped about this new movie that is coming out called “Whip It”  It stars three of my favorite people Drew Barrymore, Ellen Page, and Landon Pigg.  I gotta say I am really pumped to see Landon Pigg in a movie because I’ve always listened to his music, but I’ve never seen him act before.  So it’s gonna be fun.  Can I also mention that the soundtrack to the movie is awesome as well.  Here is the trailer and then a review that I found today.

Enjoy!!!!

MOVIE REVIEW

‘Whip It’

The Drew Barrymore-directed, Ellen Page-starring story of a high school student who finds her groove in the roller derby world is a fun romp and an athletic drama with a heart.

By Betsy Sharkey FILM CRITIC >>>

October 2, 2009

When Drew Barrymore decides to call her movie “Whip It,” you might think you’re in for some kind of cage-fighting, girl-powered “Animal House.” And while you do get the fishnets, food fights, broken bones and bloody noses, there are many sly satisfactions to be found in Barrymore’s smartly done directing debut.

Essentially, the film is a chicks-on-skates/coming-of-age/sports-drama/comedy/feminist polemic set in the racy world of roller derby. If it sounds as if it would be easy to lose your footing in all of that, it is. And on occasion Barrymore does, and not just because the floors are slick.

But for the most part, the 34-year-old Barrymore, with much of her life spent in front of the camera and more than a few impressive producing credits already in the bank, proves steady on her feet, able to handle curves and straightaways with equal grace.

“Whip It” stars Ellen Page as Bliss, a teenager unhappily stuck in Bodeen, Texas, best known for a giant barbecue sandwich called the Squealer, served at the inglorious Oink Joint, where Bliss works. She’s got a take-no-prisoners, beauty pageant-obsessed mom in Marcia Gay Harden, an ex-football player dad (Daniel Stern, reminding us of his easy way with humor) who prefers the bench and a few beers in this woman’s world, and a best friend in Pash (Alia Shawkat), who’s planning an Ivy League escape from their soul-destroying small town.

An unfortunate blue-hair incident on the pageant circuit and a mother-daughter shopping trip to nearby Austin clue us in on the growing family friction that makes Bliss’ nickname — Blister — far more fitting. Expectations are such a burden in high school.

The story is set in the indie-punk derby renaissance that began in 2000 in Austin and is based on the semiautobiographical novel by Shauna Cross, who also wrote the screenplay. Bliss, in the middle of an identity crisis, stumbles upon two things she loves: the derby and an alternative rocker named Oliver (the very engaging singer-songwriter Landon Pigg). Both will cause her pain; one will seriously disappoint her.

Soon enough our young teen is torn between the grunge-infused roller derby of her dreams and the Miss Blue Bonnet Pageant of her mother’s. Luckily for Bliss, that derby playbook is jammed with life lessons, particularly for underdogs; in Bliss’ case, that would be the Hurl Scouts — think tough cookies in green uniforms that are cut very short and very tight; no former Brownies here.

What makes “Whip It” a blast is the action in the rink. What gives “Whip It” heart is the pathos, pain and mettle-testing elements that accompany any serious athletic competition. It doesn’t hurt that its diminutive star is surprisingly athletic and agile on the track. “I’m Canadian. I skate,” Page has said.

Page, whose turn as the preternaturally pragmatic pregnant teen looking for an adoptive couple in “Juno” earned her an Oscar nomination, once again plays teenage angst with an almost tactile nuance here. Watching her elbow her way through blockers, hip check competitors into the rails and jump fallen bodies at top speed makes it easy to believe that Bliss (and Page) is having the time of her life. (The cast went to roller-derby boot camp and handled most of its own skating and falling.)

That it’s virtually impossible for the apple-cheeked actress to look seriously threatening is something the film has some fun with — “Give us your look,” her teammates tease at one point after Bliss, skating as “Babe Ruthless,” becomes the season’s poster girl.

In fact, “fun” seems to be the film’s guiding principle. Barrymore allows herself on the rink now and then as a ditzy, schizzy skater named Smashley Simpson, who mainly falls spectacularly. Serial comics abound, including Jimmy Fallon and Kristen Wiig. Juliette Lewis is terrific as Page’s scenery-chewing nemesis. Topping it off, there are real derby girls too — Kristen “Krissy Krash” Adolfi and Rachel “Iron Maiven” Piplica.

Make no mistake, this is no deep treatise on female athletes — rent “Million Dollar Baby” or “Personal Best” for that. Instead, Barrymore has chosen to go broad — packing “Whip It” with tough, sarcastic chicks willing to totally commit to Maggie Mayhem’s “be your own hero” mantra. They are, to put it bluntly, hell on wheels . . . exactly what happens when the skate fits.
