Lip Sync Battle
So...Salt vs Pepa does anyone care? Are Jimmy and Stephen and John already down to the B-Listers? I wasn't THAT excited, especially since there really wasn't much on last night at all. I could have continued watching music videos, pilots, or last week's John Oliver, but I watched. Sure it was enjoyable, but I do have some issues. 
1) Do we need Chrissy Teigen?
2) Camera's still all over the place
3) Our "stars" are still using that microphone and blocking their lips
4) Wearing red lipstick helps
5) Winners need to be voted on by texting or some more official way than audience clapping.  There's NO way Pepa should have won. Salt totally kicked her ass!!!  Pepa over did it and messed up…a LOT! 
Wanna see a GREAT lip sync…watch Sean Hayes and his partner…Jimmy…get these two on the show!!!

What the Fung?
I don't know if you guys know this about me, but I do consider myself a foodie. I'm love to eat, I love great restaurants and I love NOT spending a ton of money on them. I saw a clip of What the Fung in a meeting and I gotta admit, the title is what reminded me to check the show out. As much as I'm a foodie, I don't watch many cooking shows unless there is a Beverly Hills 90210 star involved, but this show intrigued me. What the Fung stars the Fung brothers, Andrew & David. They give themselves $50 bucks each and go to a different city each episode and find amazing food. The show is shot really well. It's fast and fun and the brothers have cheesy little slogans like "Fung Fact" "Do it for the Gram" (Instagram) and "Fatality." In the premiere episode they had 4 meals plus dessert in Los Angeles all for only $50. All I want to do now is fly to LA, get my cousins and go to all of the places they went to. I gave this one a Season Pass. The shows, only 30 minutes and it's foodie fun!  


-I didn't watch Red Nose Day, but I saw this video this AM and it's awesome. Cold Play working on a Game of Thrones musical. If you're a GOT fan or a Coldplay fan, enjoy: 
Here's short version:
Here's the long version:

-I posted this link yesterday, but I'm re-posting it. I'm obsessed with it. No joke I've probably watched it 15 times. I know you have a lot going on. I know you have to prioritize, but James Corden is fun. I love car karaoke and I gotta say, Bieber got me back a little with this. Take a few minutes and check this thing out: there is something there, right?
