OK. The truth is I really shouldn't even be writing this post, so it won't be a long one, but I will give you the big news of the past few weeks. It really boils down to one acronym: MTV.
In the past few weeks I have become a "friend" on the "The After Show", which used to be this pop-culturey talk show about the show The Hills, but which is now not only about The Hills but about other aspects of pop culture and celebrity gossip as well. It's on live on Monday nights at 10:30pm in both Canada and the USA, and from Tuesday to Thursday live at 7:30, repeating at 11:30pm in Canada only. I've been on twice so far (yesterday, September 4th, 2008, and last Thursday, August 28, 2008) chatting and/or arguing with the hosts and the other "friends" about deep issues like if Daniel Radcliff is hot, if Heidi Montag's new music video is tragic, and if Sarah Palin is a horrible person. (Hint: the correct answer to all three of those questions is YES.)
I've also been blogging about The Hills a little on the MTV.ca website. I've written about Hills Characters Off The Hills and Hills Fashion so far. In the second post, a line has been added to my writing. It's something I would never write or say. See if you can spot it.
Editors. They're not always good.
Anyway, that the nooze for the moment. I promise a better update soon. It's September. Back to school time. I'm teaching. There's a chill in the air and I'm going to the beach this weekend. Things are pretty good.
That girl from the teevee,
