The OC will be back November 3rd! [Oct. 1st, 2005|04:48 pm]

Sorry I haven't been too great with the updating. I'm swamped with school. Who knew this medical school thing would be so time consuming? What makes it just that much better though is that I have hospital clinic on Thursday morning, making the OC the light at the end of the tunnel of my day. Anyway, I have watched all the eps this season, and while they are a little lackluster in terms of huge jaw dropping events, it's pretty good in terms of making me want to beat up every single new character that has shown up. Beat 'em up like Jimmy was beat.

OC(D) Thoughts so far this seasonCollapse )

Who else thinks Josh Schwartz saw Napoleon Dynamite and had a major epiphany: "OMG, Alphaville's Forever Young? I must have someone cover that for my show!" And he did, and it was the song during the dance last night, covered by Youth Group.

Speaking of the music: here was thursday's music:

"Circles" by Bob Mould
"Fire Fire" by M.I.A.
"Ain't No Game" by Basko
"I Don't Want To Fall In Love" by She Wants Revenge
"Natural" (Radio Edit) by Infusion
"Triumphant" by Royksopp
"Forever Young" by Youth Group

The OC will be on hiatus until November 3 because of baseball. Now, I would usually curse baseball for interrupting my viewing, but since the Angels are the AL West winners this year, I'm actually not too bummed about it. GO ANGELS.

So that wasn't a bad way to start the season, was it? Most of the loose ends were tied up in regards to Trey, who had a fairly classy exit to Bloc Party. We have yet to find out about Caleb's will, Jimmy's intentions, Ryan/Marissa's future at Harbor, Kirsten's situation at rehab, etc, but they can only put so much in one episode.

Welcome back to the OC, bitchCollapse )

Music from The Aftermath:

"Beretta" by Manishevitz
"Hide Another Mistake" by The 88
"Song For No One" by Ian Broudie
"Way To Go" by Teen Wolf
"Blue Light" (Engineers "Anti-Gravity" Mix) by Bloc Party

Next week, The Shape of all things to come:
Jimmy sorts out his financial problems. Ryan and Marissa have a meeting with the Dean also to talk about their future at Harbor. Kirsten makes a big decision about her stay in rehab. The annual Harbor High carnival is upon us once again, but this time Summer and Marissa have a new competitor to contend with.

New OC Music Mix 5 CD coming out November 8. At this rate, we're definitely getting to OC Music Mix 157.

The OC third season starts up tomorrow 8/7 C with an episode entitled, "The Aftermath." How foreboding. The second episode is entitled "The Shape of all things to come" and I appreciate that it sounds like the title of a Backstreet Boys song. All the loose ends from last season: the shooting, Kirsten's stay at rehab, Julie's financial status now that Cay-Cay is no longer with us--will be tied up. Of course there will be new characters to stir up some trouble, and we'll find out what's going to happen with Jimmy Cooper. And since the kids are seniors this year, they've got a lot to think about with college and graduation and such. I guess we'll see...

After the premiere of the OC, Amanda Righetti (Hailey on the OC) has a new Fox show, Reunion, about a group of friends that comes together after 20 years at a funeral of a close friend--that most likely one of them has killed--and it all takes place at a luxury hotel in Hawaii (oh wait, I'm getting that confused with another show). The show also stars the very hot Sean Faris (Life as We Know It) and Will Estes (American Dreams).

The entire OC cast is supposed to be on Ellen tomorrow, I think. Check your local listings. Happy OC watching!

So, I'm totally in one of those bitchy moods where I don't want to study, but yet I know I should. And to exacerbate the anger and bitterness, I just watched the newest episode of Laguna Beach and oh my god I hate Jason. Hate is an incredibly strong word, but I feel that it is completely warranted. He's a jackass.

Laguna Beach recap/rantCollapse )

Well, at least Casey wasn't in this episode too much.

And I'm laughing out loud right now. This is the cast of LB at the MTV VMAs. I love that Reality Stars become "celebrities." Stephen looks pretty hot. Kristin looks too conservative for my taste, she should be slutting it up like a good OC girl. Jessica looks cute, but her darker hair makes her look like Alex M. Taylor's dress is cute. I still hate Casey and Jason and Cedric. But Casey's dress is very Paris Hilton-esque. I wonder if those two run into each other, will the universe implode? Alex H looks cute too. New ep tomorrow, it should be a doozy.

The OC starts in like a week and a half, September 8th. The DVD set came out this past Tuesday, I got mine, but possibly will not have time to watch it until 2013.

Hello again--so there's lots of update, so I'll cut to the chase. All of the photos are from: rachel-bilson.com, rachelbilsonfan.com, mischa-web.com, and wireimage.com, so props to them.

Rachel is on the cover of Elle Magazine and Lucky Magazine, and she looks gorgeous on both (Elle mag cover photo is old though). Lucky has a really short article about a week in the wardrobe of Ms. Bilson, and the clothes are very cute.

Speaking of magazine covers, Mischa is on the cover of Cosmogirl this month.

Lots more pictures and I promise you will not be disappointed because everyone looks HOT, especially the momsCollapse )

And if any of you saw Dukes of Hazzard (and I'm not judging you if you have...well, maybe a little but only because Jessica Simpson desecrated that Nancy Sinatra song), you may have recognized a familiar face. Nikki Griffin, who played cokewhore Jess on the OC, was an ex of the Dukes in the movie, so congrats to her!

And a shoutout is due to Jen at www.the-oc.org News Reel because she still pimps my site even though I haven't updated in awhile . Thanks, Jen! Be sure to visit her frequently updated News Reel over at www.the-oc.org.

And with the dawn of a new season almost upon us, there's going to be more people moving to the OC this fall, but I won't spoil it for you...the surprise will be better this way. Just know that Josh is ready to throw some curveballs at us. He's like Bartolo Colon, that one. And speaking of, GO Orange County Anaheim Los Angeles ANGELS of California, or whatever they are calling themselves these days. That's my team, and they will prevail over Oakland.

Lastly, it's time for a Laguna Beach discussion. I don't have enough time to recount everything that's been going on in the show...well actually, I can in one word: nothing. But that's the beauty of this show--nothing happens, but we can't stop watching it. My friends and I watch it every week and have gotten others to follow suit. This is how MTV has managed to stay afloat without showing any music videos during hours when people are actually awake. This and My Super Sweet Sixteen, which premieres tomorrow. I. Cannot. Wait. for that. "We're in a $400,000 car!"

Laguna Beach BumsCollapse )

The OC Season 2 DVD comes out August 23, 2005. And the third season is only 33 days away. Until we meet again!

EDIT Congrats to Peter, who came in at #17 on VH1's 40 hottest over 40.

Well, now that we only have a little over a month until the OC starts up again (September 8), I suppose I should make an update.

Pictures of various cast members, past and present--and some of them are pretty old, so bear with me, I haven't had too much time to do a real update.

The OC, in picturesCollapse )

Adam's Interview magazine articles and scans + outtakesCollapse )

Also, Ben was on a recent episode of Punk'd, so I'm sure MTV will be replaying it until the sound of Ashton Kutcher's voice makes your ears bleed.

Laguna Beach (with the old favorites: Christina (who was no one's favorite, I can assure you), Lo, LC, STEEEE-VEN (spelled with a PH though), Trey, Talan, Kristin, etc home for break) premiered on Monday night, and from all accounts it still sucks. This season's focus is Kristin's dramatic life, and her friends Alex and Jessica (Dieter's ex) joining in on the fun. There's also a new bitchy character named Taylor, which I was waiting for, since there's always a girl named Taylor at every level of school in Orange County--extra points would have gone to the show had they gotten an Ashley and a Madison, also. I'll keep you posted when I see it. Also, season one's DVD set is out, and I actually saw someone buying it. Which is news in itself. Way to capitalize, MTV, way to go.

Lauren Graham was robbed yet again! [Jul. 14th, 2005|11:21 am]

[Current Mood |lazylazy]
[Current Music |sufjan]

Well hello out there, LJ land. I know I have been very bad. I haven't updated in a really, really long time, but I'm here to tell you that I'm going to try my darndest to get up some updates in the near future. Starting this weekend, I'll be free, as I have a very VERY huge final exam tomorrow, then I'll be off to Las Vegas to spend some time with my family, where I will have lots of time to update. Unfortunately, I won't be going home to OC, so that'll be really sad--but that won't stop me from talking about the goings on there (like the OC fair which is going on right now!).

I have a load of appearance pictures to update, casting news/spoilers, and the Adam Brody interview in Interview Magazine (with Rachel McAdams on the cover yay!), which is actually pretty good, plus some Big Japan (Adam's band) songs, if anyone is interested.

Since I've been gone, Mischa finished filming the Decameron in Italy (and also officially split from Brandon Davis), Rachel finished The Last Kiss in Canada, and I'm assuming Adam and Ben finished In the Land of Women and Pacific Air 121, respectively. Mr. and Mrs. Smith was released, and I saw it--Adam had a small role that couldn't have made him seem more type cast at all. It was a good movie for what it is. The OC has started production again, Big Japan released their cd: Music for Dummies (which I've heard, and while it is not my cup of tea, it's pretty decent for a self-indulgent actor's side project :) I also became an aunt, see my personal LJ for a picture, saw Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants and read the new Chuck Klosterman book, which is all personal info, but I thought I'd throw it in anyway.

Also some other news: Chris Carmack is going to be in a new series called Beach Girls. Samaire, LIndsay Lohan, and his movie "Just My Luck" will be out this fall. Samaire is filming another movie called "Stay Alive" in which she plays a character named Abigail. Bret Harrison, Adam's bandmate and 2 time guest on the OC, will also be appearing in "In the Land of Women" which leads me to believe that Adam is as attached to Bret as he is to that blue plaid shirt. He will also be in a series this fall called "The Loop," also on Fox.

And in what is quite possibly the worst rumored casting ever: Olivia Wilde has been announced as the star of Gossip Girl, which would normally be great, since I love those trashy books more than anything, but she's playing Blair Waldorf. Pixie cutted, neurotic, psycho-bitch brunette Blair. Hopefully this is a snafu on imdb's part, and hopefully she is actually playing the role of Serena, whom she would be perfect for. EDIT Actually imdb removed the Gossip Girl page, so maybe it was a wrong on their part for reporting this. And I actually also think that the whole project has been scrapped since there have been problems with the screenplay (as in they don't have one) et al. I still think La Lohan should dye her hair back and play Blair. And I still think this movie should be made.

Important Dates: August 23, 2005 Season 2 is released on DVD. It will be a 7 DVD set this time, with a lot of extras, as per usual.
September 8, 2005--The OC Season 3 begins. This year, we don't have to wait for the World Series to end, the show will begin the fall season on schedule. Following the OC will be a show called Reunion, which stars OC alum Amanda Righetti.

EDIT Oh dear god. I just saw an ad for Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County Season 2, and it looks just as terrible as season one. Why do you hurt us so MTV? Oy. However, I will say that I think the girls are cuter and more representative of OC Mean Girl quality that we've come to endear. There are also some new guy hotties (please let one of them be smart, oh who am I kidding). OH I still despise Kristen (LC for life, y'all) because she is continually causing trouble and because she walks around like she owns the place (yeah, I heard about the Laker game, K). Needless to say, I. Cannot. Wait.

That's all I have for now--I'm going to try to get the tract listing for the OC Mix CD 5 up sometime if I can find it--I know there's a torrent floating around out there that claims itself as such, and I will update with more later.

Oh, and Lauren Graham of Gilmore Girls was robbed of an Emmy Nomination once again. I thought for sure this year she'd have a better chance, but no, all those Desperate Housewhores got noms instead. That's okay, I still love Lorelai. But congrats to Zach Braff for getting nominated for the first time for Scrubs. And of course no noms for The OC, but again, expected. You can still vote for the OC in the teen choice awards though, I think. Well, anywho, have a great day!

Catch Adam in Mr. and Mrs. Smith, opening today!

So last night, the MTV Movie Awards aired. Because I have a lot of time on my hands (not really, but I'm great at wasting time when I have things to do), I sort of blogged it. Just so you know, before we get involved in anything serious here, I'm not the biggest fan of Napoleon Dynamite, especially Haylie Duff and her connection with the movie. Also, after re-reading what I've written, I think I've developed a girl crush on Rachel McAdams, going so far as to nickname her. That story is developing...that said, enjoy the recap. And if you missed the award show, no fear, I'm sure it'll be on about 1087987827308439 more times before the year is over.

2005 MTV Movie Awards, hosted by Jimmy FallonCollapse )

Massive OC appearance update, and yes a lot of these pictures are very old--they've been sitting on my external hard drive for like a month, but I've had no time to update--so I'm sorry. There's paparazzi shots of Adam and Rachel, Adam at the Mr. and Mrs. Smith Premiere, Mischa and Ben at Cannes, MIscha's Maxim Hot #100 picture, Peter, Melinda and Kelly at the Fox Upfronts, Kelly at a Candian thing, Melinda getting free stuff, and Peter at a golf event.

Massive Picture Update as promisedCollapse )

Adam's band, Big Japan, has a cd entitled "Music for Dummies" coming out soon (I have the official date somewhere, but I'm too lazy to find it. They are playing next month at the Troubadour in LA, July 6th to be exact.

The OC is up for several awards in the Teen Choice Awards including Choice TV Drama, Choice TV Actor (Ben and Adam both), Choice TV Actress (Mischa and Rachel both), Choice Hottie (Adam), Choice Hottie Female (Rachel). The Award show is August 16, 2005 on Fox. You can vote here: TeenPeople.com

Okay, so I know I promised that I would have a big recap of the finale. I lied. You shouldn't have really expected too much from me, I am from the OC after all. By the time I was ready to write something about it, I had forgotten most of what happened. However, under the cut is what I remember...sorry it's late. But better late than never...just ask Kirsten. She can't even apologize to Caleb now.

We didn't get to say goodbye...Collapse )

They will be showing 2 hour blocks of the OC every Thursday, so you can relive the magic of Season 2 (especially that Mall Episode, that was grrreat!). So, if you missed any this season, I think they are going to be showing episodes 5 and 6 this week.

music from the season finale "The Dearly Beloved"
El Manana by Gorillaz
Crosses by Jose Gonzalez
Hide and Seek by Imogen Heap
You're Not The Law by The Dead 60's
An Honest Mistake by The Bravery (it was only time until they played The Bravery)
Hot Ride by The Prodigy
Friends by Ryan Adams & The Cardinals
Twenty Two Fourteen by The Album Leaf

and how about that Gilmore Girls finale too? Very shocking and emotional. Thoughts?

Speaking of Alexis Bledel, if I don't leave now, I'm going to miss my screening of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, in theaters now. Cannot. Wait.

I may blog the MTV movie awards this week, if I feel so inclined. I will try to make a huge picture update of the pictures I've amassed on my comp sometime soon also. UNtil then, have a great summer.

Hello all--
I can't really put all of my comments down as I am moving into my first apt ever this weekend. I know, it's very exciting. I will be without internet for the next few days, but I promise, after May 23 (I go home to OC) I will recap the finale, and it should be a doozy. Here are some thoughts on last night's ep:

Oh say can you O Sea?Collapse )

---
And sadly, STAR magazine is reporting that Mischa and oily heir Brandon Davis have split. I have no further comment on this, and neither do her reps.
---
Rachel has been named #6 on Maxim's Hot 100. Mischa was #33. You go girls.
--
Watch out for the cast on various talk shows, maybe? The season finale is next week, they better start pimping and whoring themselves out.
--
AND holy crap, Arrested Development coming back for 1+ seasons? It's like Christmas right now! If this is some kind of sick joke... well then, you got me. Please bring back Tobias.
