Live From Daryl’s House …

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

How it took me 47 blog entries to get to this is beyond me. In fact, come to think of it, how I've turned away from music-laden entries as much as I do is beyond me. Actually, how there are more than (maybe) three people who check this blog on a regular basis is beyond me. But I digress. Anyways, "Live From Daryl's House." We haven't discussed the Web-only music extravaganza yet, have we? I didn't think so. Stupid me. I've been checking this thing for years now, and it isn't until six months ... read more

Ladies and gentlemen, the Video Music Awards

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

For the last trillion years, I have taken to newsprint and the various forms of the InterWebs to offer musings about MTV's Video Music Awards shortly after they occur. This has become a yearly tradition for me. It's something I have grown to look forward to, and it's honestly one of the few things that I consider fun anymore. Luckily, I have obtained this silly, little blog since moving to the area all the way back in January, thus allowing me another forum to post my irrelevant thoughts on such ... read more

They say they never really miss you …

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

Why, hello, hello. How have you been? It's been a couple of weeks. I won't even begin with the "Did you miss me?" talk, because I am sort of used to not being missed. Besides, I'm far too sensitive to stand a possible insulting answer to a mindless question anyways. So why even risk it, right? Right. A lot has happened since we last rendezvoused, you know. And because I — the loving, caring blogtastic blogger that I am — love you — the fantastic, loyal, intelligent and attractive readers ... read more

Season one of ”The Voice” comes to an end; Blake Shelton wonders what to do next

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

Back in the deep, dark and distant month of April, I took to this particular blog to dissect the premier of a brand new show from NBC called “The Voice.” I wondered if it would work, or for that matter, how long it could possibly stay on television. I knew the network was putting all of its eggs in one basket with this, and I knew that if there was ever going to be one shot that NBC had at regaining at least a little bit of respect in TV land, this was going to have to be it. Two months later, ... read more

Netflix Pix – June 2011

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

Well hello to you, June, you overly-warm month, you. And hello to this month’s installment of Netflix Pix (I still can’t get over how catchy that title is). This blog has spent the last couple of weeks taking a look at what we can expect as soon as the daylight becomes shorter and the weather mercilessly becomes cooler once September rolls around. But now it’s time to get ourselves back on track with the here and now. Sure, we could ask the question of why anyone needs something such as ... read more

‘O’ No, MTV

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

Hey, remember when the "TV" in "MTV" stood for television? I know, I know. Those were the good old days, weren't they? It was a time of Real World/Road Rules Challenges. A time filled with programming keen on fake reality and after-dark Tila Tequila madness. It was a time long after the "M" stopped meaning "music," though long before the "TV" was restricted to a simple box in one's living room. Enter the MTV O Awards, a ceremony held last Thursday (because, as Rebecca Black so poignantly put it ... read more

Netflix Pix – May 2011

by Colin McGuire. 0 Comments

Note: This was written before Osama bin Laden was captured on Sunday. As you noticed, a post regarding that particular subject appeared the following day. So when I say "the first post of every month," you know what I mean, right? Good.  Let's be honest: You can't have a blog about shunning cable television packages without spending time writing about Netflix. Actually, without spending a lot of time writing about Netflix. That's why the first post of every month will outline five choices that ... read more
