Weekend To-Do List (Clowning Around Edition)
I’m totally off my game this afternoon. No, I’m not hung over, or still recovering from Tuesday Night Book Club. (Well, maybe just a little. Recovering from Tuesday Night Book Club, that is. I wouldn’t let a hangover get in the way of blogging. Sheesh!) Anyhow, the reason for my hot mess-itude is that I’m haunted by ”Happy Morning,” the crazy/beautiful new ad for Folgers, which for some reason makes me think of the lyrics to Jill Scott‘s ”Golden.”
But I digress. Gah! I don’t even remember what I digress from. You see, I’m broken. And I’m faded. I’m half the man I thought I would be. But you can have what’s left of me. And, naturally, a list of completely unrelated entertainment options for the weekend ahead.
-Tonight, from 9-10 p.m. on Animal Planet (during the commercial breaks), you can catch a show I’m already obsessed with (though I haven’t seen a second of it): Meow Mix House. You know already from the live Web feed, it’s gonna be major.
-Speaking of major, the John Wayne-John Ford Film Collection is now out on DVD, and our own Ken Tucker gives it an A.
-Also out on DVD, season 1 of one of my not-guilty-at-all favorites, Medium, perfect for those of you who are finding most of this summer’s new series as uninspiring as I am.
-Not that there’s nothin’ good on the tube. Entourage‘s second episode from its third season airs Sunday night, as does the series premiere of Treasure Hunters. (And hey, we’re doing TV Watches on both of ’em!)
-Finally, the website we’ve all been waiting for — the one that reimagines celebrities like Carrot Top, Angelina Jolie, and Elisha Cuthbert (pictured) as clowns — has arrived. And it’s awesome.
