Barbra as KatnissBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

First of all to all you persnickety poo poohs, I don't really know all there is to know about The Hunger Games. I'm just being referential to an old pop culture reference. As a matter of fact, I came on a little late in the game. (Oh, how I love puns!)

I had heard buzz about the books being like Twilight, so, naturally, the simile triggered my gag reflex. Don't get me wrong, I'm as ready for a shirtless werewolf or vampire as the next queen, but I really don't need to see Kristen Stewart popping out the demon seed.

It was actually my colleague, editor, and ultimate Fangirl Barbra J. Dillon that convinced me to get on the Hunger tip. She's obsessed with Katniss and even dresses up as her in an RKO fireside chat-type portrayal of Miss Everdeen in The Katniss Chronicles. Yes, she is that girl! Don't fret, she is absolutely perfect as Katniss, so much so I even imagine Babs as Katniss when I read the books. I seldom read books without pictures, so that is kind of a big deal. Needless to say, I immediately fell in love with the book! (Thanks, Barb!) Now, on to the movie.

Marvel Housewives MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

With the current housewife craze thanks, in part, to the popularity of Desperate Housewives and subsequent Bravo reality rip-offs (The Real Housewives of fill-in-the-blank), we shan't over look how wonderfully messed up the not-so-single ladies of the Marvel Universe are.

Invisible Woman: Most women lament that their husbands treat them as if they're invisible, but mine takes the transparent cake. Not only does my husband treat me that way, he made me that way in a horrible test flight gone wrong! How do you like them apples? No wonder I wish I was sleeping with the fishes! Don't worry, I'm far from suicidal; I'm talking about Namor, King of the Sea. Now there's a can of chunky light albacore I'd like to open. If my husband can't see me, let him smell me!

MDNA MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

I feel like sinnin'. Must be the Tanqueray. Damn, I picked the wrong life to quit drinkin'. Madonna's new record MDNA drops this week, and I'm spinning, baby, out of control. Madonna came up in the clubs with music that double dog dared you not to dance to it, and MDNA is a face slapping reminder of that.

You know how to whistle, baby. Just put your lips together...and blow. And now, I offer you a blow-by-blow of the tracks off of Madonna's killer new dance album, MDNA. (You gotta love that title!)

Shark Tank MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

My newest guilty pleasure has to be Shark Tank, Friday nights on ABC. In this reality competition, the contestants (or would-be entrepreneurs, as it were) present their pitches for a business or product idea to the "Sharks" for investment consideration and business partnership. The sharks are made up of a panel of billionaire investors. Your goal is to get any shark to invest in your concept, and if not, you walk away with nothing, the least of which being your dignity.
