Baby Bella

By Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

Baby Bella? Am I referring to those delicious, low-cal, individually wax-wrapped cheese snacks? No, I'm referring to Kristen Stewart, whose character is knocked up in the latest installment of the Twilight saga.

I have to say I have nothing against Kristen Stewart. She has money flying out of her, but she's part of the most successful film franchise ever, and she has one of the hottest guys on the planet. Why should I be bitter?

Go Green!

Ryan Reynolds' Green Lantern was a clue on Jeopardy tonight. Finally, a redeeming quality! In fairness, I know the one person that actually liked Green Lantern. I would never publicly call you out, Barbra J. Dillon; don't fret.  I do find it a little shameless that they are campaigning for an Oscar. I didn't realize there was a best buns category.

Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang continue their thrilling run on the new Wonder Woman, as Issue #3 opens in the aftermath of Issue #2, as the Amazons torch their dead sisters and build paradise lost anew, as they have so many times in the past. Kinda makes you "wonder" how there is a neverending supply of the female warrior race without a single penis within a three-mile radius?

"There isn't a door in the world that beauty can't open," says the demented and mysterious Jessica Lange in one of my new favorite television series, American Horror Story on FX.

American Horror Story
is a new nighttime soap with some seriously twisted story lines. Taking place in Los Angeles, an unfaithful psychiatrist and his wife buy a new house in an attempt to salvage their failing marriage. (Um, good idea.)

It's fitting that Pan Am centers around a hurricane this week, as the show seems to pick up speed. The first fifteen minutes read like a '70s disaster film, and I couldn't be more thrilled. It's exactly the white-knuckled, over-the-top excitement I was hoping for, as the crew is forced to make an emergency landing in a closed airport, because one of the passengers, who is making his first flight, is having a heart attack. And then? And then, it becomes Tropic Thunder-meets-Hotel Rwanda-meets The A-Team, as the crew is stranded and terrorized in Haiti.

L-U-V Madonna! Y-O-U, you wanna? Yes! Yes, I do. Madonna's new song leaked on the Internet, and I couldn't be happier. First, let me say how funny I think it is that EVERYTHING leaks on the internet these days. Look at Lady Gaga; she queefs and it "accidentally" leaks within seconds.

Madonna's new song, "Give Me All Your Love," has leaked and I liked it. At first listen, I immediately dismissed it as a rip off of Katy Perry's "Peacock," as it has that same '80s Cheerleader anthem vibe. After 150 plays on my iPod, it has grown on me tremendously. It just so happens to be a killer cardio song. God knows it made my time on the elliptical machine fly by like a ray of light today.

Two of the loves of my life are Wonder Woman and The Golden Girls. Hey, if that makes me super gay, I don't want to be straight.

After my parents' lovely divorce, we went to live with my grandmother in North Las Vegas. Needless to say, it was a departure from Klinger's Hometown in the Midwest.

I remember being very young, and my siblings and I would climb into bed with our grandmother. (Or, "Nana" as her youthful ego mandated we address her.) My brother and sister and I would climb into bed in our pj's, my grandmother reeking of Vick's Vapo Rub.

It's a darn good thing Pan Am makes international flights, because this week's episode was all over the place. Don't get me wrong, I am still in love with the concept, style, and potential of the series; I just think it is suffering a little bit of an identity crisis.

After 7 episodes, you would think it would be a little more solid in conception. This week had the girls boozing it up and playing truth or dare on the plane. Perhaps, this was an attempt to create a Sex and the City-type camaraderie amongst the otherwise chemistry-less cast. I like the girls, but there is a serious lack of buyable bonding betwixt them.

Glamour and Glitter fashion and fame - Dazzler's my name! Say what? With the recent release of the Jem DVD box set, it got me reminiscing. I always had a love/hate relationship with the pink-haired pop punkette of the '80s. I truly, truly, truly enjoyed watching the Jem cartoon with my baby sister, Kelly. The drama of Jem vs. The Misfits was epic. Who needs Knots Landing when you have cat fights and day glow hairdos all rolled into one. (Just kidding, EVEYONE needs Knots Landing!) The hate part comes from my disdain for the dolls based on the cartoon. They were hideous with big, ole' jugheads of ghastly proportions. Not to mention the ugliest faces this side of 818. Ah well, it's the closest we'll ever get to a Xanadu cartoon! (OMG! That would be so cool!) And, it was good, damn it!

'Cause I am not a word, I am not a line.

I am not a girl that can ever be defined.


Storm burst onto the comic scene in the '70s as a member of the all new, all different gaggle of rag tag outlaw mutants, the Uncanny X-men. A silver-haired, blue-eyed African Goddess, she had me at "hullo." Created by Len Wein and designed by Dave Cockrum, her original costume is my favorite to date. (Although, Tim Gunn would likely have a field day with it. "Who is this woman and where is she going? She looks like a drag queen prostitute attending a hooker convention!")
