Blossom: Six and Sharon Motormouths

It's no secret how much I love the sitcom Blossom (I'm surprised it's not in re-runs it's such a great show) and I have been lucky enough (thanks to my brother) to have gotten the whole series on DVD.

This is without a doubt my favorite moment of Jenna Von Oy's character Six. It's from the episode "I Killed Chico Baranca" where Six has been stealing home appliances to sell at garage sales to earn extra money for clothes and she and Blossom are arrested for it. In this scene, Blossom's father has paid their bail and they are waiting for Six's mother Sharon to come and pick her up from their house. The results are hilarious. Take A Look.

Jennifer Hudson: Spotlight

I'm adding Jennifer Hudson's new video "Spotlight" to my blog because I really enjoy her as a singer and an actress and I was incredibly shocked to hear about the tragedies that have surrounded her family lately. Her Mother, Brother and young Nephew were all murdered within a week. I can't even imagine what her family is going through.
On a lighter note (please God, let there be one), her new movie which she co-stars in "The Secret Life Of Bees" with Dakota Fanning, Queen Latifah, and Alicia Keys, is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. There was not a dry eye in the theatre when I went to see it. Plus, she has recently released her first full length album.

The tracklisting for the album is,

1) Spotlight
2) If This Isn't Love
3) Pocketbook feat. Ludacris
4) Giving Myself
5) What's Wrong (Go Away) feat. T-Pain
6) My Heart
7) You Pulled Me Through
8) I'm His Only Woman feat. Fantasia
9) Can't Stop The Rain
10) We Gon' Fight
11) Invisible
12) And I Am Telling You (I'm Not Going) from Dreamgirls
13) Jesus Promised Me A Home Over There
14) All Dressed In Love (from the Sex And The City soundtrack)

Courtney Love: Barbara Walters Interview (1995)

A revealing interview with Courtney Love about the death of Kirt Cobain, her band Hole, being a mother, and her film career which at the time was just getting started. I love how honest she is in this interview, I think Courtney is very messed up but she makes great music and I think if she keeps herself sober for greater amounts of time, she could be a great actress.

Neve Campbell: On David Letterman (2004)

Another great Canadian. Neve Campbell is one of those actresses whom I used to find extremely annoying but as time has passed and she has grown up and done more intriguing film roles I have really come to enjoy her work. Her film "When Will I Be Loved" happens to be one of those films that completely changed her image in my mind. During the press for that movie she stopped by David Letterman for the interview above.

Ellen Page: On David Letterman (2008)

The beautiful Ellen Page's first appearance on David Letterman during her promo for the film "Juno". I just love "the transparent slut" moment. Good stuff.

Jennifer Garner: On The Ellen Degeneres Show (2004)

A very cute interview with the adorable Jennifer Garner during her press tour for the movie "13 Going On 30", as well as my much missed tv show Alias which at the time was in it's third season.

The Reader: Movie Trailer

When he falls ill on his way home from school, 15 year-old Michael Berg is rescued by Hanna, a woman twice his age. The two begin an unexpected and passionate affair only for Hanna to suddenly and inexplicably disappear. Eight years later, Michael, now a young law student observing Nazi war trials, meets his former lover again, under very different circumstances. Hanna is on trial for a hideous crime, and as she refuses to defend herself, Michael gradually realizes his boyhood love may be guarding a secret she considers to be more shameful than murder.
