Fadoms Come in Many Forms

I am a fan of so many things.  Tonight we will talk tv.

Project Runway: Under the Gunn.

He is my hero.  Truly, he is an amazing man.  I wish one day I can be as kind and empathetic as he is.  Have you seen him on the Biggest Loser or Project Runway?  He also is the author of two books.  I totally recommend checking them and him out.  On the episode tonight was the Steampunk Challenge.  I love the aesthetic of Steampunk and wow this was an avant garde challenge and I think it overall went well.  Marc even watched to see if the contestants could figure out what 'Steampunk' meant.  He and I agreed on all of the looks and the ones we liked all got the top so he was happy.  I thought it was funny to watch Tim try to describe to the designers what Steampunk was.  I am not a designer but I know enough about fashion that if someone were to tell me Victorian futurism I would be able to figure it out.  There were a few of the designers who did not even grasp the idea of "Victorian".  I thought fashion designers would know a little about fashion history.  In the end the right person went home and I think maybe the judges do not really get Steampunk because Natalia does get it and she should have won.
 What you can not see from the pictures is that she made the dress a convertible by the screws on the sides...the hem of the dress goes up and down.  WAY COOL!  Maybe there were some construction issues that we could not see.  Shan did an amazing job and won the challenge.  Good for him, I liked his look and thought it was very futuristic.

I love Survivor, I like watching the challenges and then getting pissed off at who won.  I like Jeff Probst.  I think he does an AMAZING job and he can root out the dirt second to none.  There have only been a few seasons that I have quit watching because the casting sucked so bad.  I am concerned that this might be one of them.  UGG Brains vs Beauty vs Brawn.  OMG I usually pull for the brainy types but how does the casting team pick the most unlikable brainiacs and put them on one tribe? They did this on Big Brother a few seasons ago too.   It did not go well there and I fear it will not go well here either.   I am sure they are all positively brilliant and charming in the real world but on camera, all I have is loathing.  These people are supposed to be smart?  There is book smart and then there is worldly smart.  These people might be book smart but in the game of Survivor they have the IQ of the average inbred 3 year old.  What are they thinking...they got rid of the only hope of winning a challenge with a strong man that can help with the physical part of the challenges.  Tonight they were in the lead after the physical part of the challenge until J' Tia could not do a puzzle.  The got rid of Garrett-a douche no doubt-in favor of J' Tia a woman who has been the sole component to your two losses and poured your rice in the fire.  I hope these 'smart' people keep losing so I do not have to watch them any longer.  I am rooting for the nerdy 'beauty' gay guy.

King of the Nerds is on TBS Thursdays 10/9central.  If you have no idea what King of the Nerds it is a show where nerds get together for a reality competition for Nerds by Nerds.  It is to see who can win and sit on the throne of Nerds and be the King of Nerds.  There is the usual competition and drama of a reality show.  The show is hosted by Booger and Lewis of the Tri-Lam fame.  Currently the show is in the second season and there are 5 people left with 3 people on one team and two on the other.  I LOVE George Takei.  "Oh, My"  If you have not checked him out on Facebook, I recommend it. He takes totally AWESOME to a whole new level.  Rock on George! He was on tonight's episode.  Yay for the twosome!  There is one person, Kayla, who keeps wearing her DragonCon attire and it makes me laugh.  Then there is this other character who shall remain nameless.  I think he is the literal sense, crazy.  I am not sure what mental affliction it is but there are more than a few screws loose in his head.  I do feel bad for him and at the same time I wish he was kicked off so I would not have to watch him any longer.  I feel for the guy and hope his life off camera is much different and much more....normal.

Kitchen Nightmares re-runs.
I can not sleep and on BBC America was a Kitchen Nightmare marathon.  I turned the channel in the middle of the one with Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, AZ.  I have seen it before, but LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL talk about crazy, you need to watch these people.  Check it out on Yelp, Reddit, Facebook, Tumblr and watch the episode on YouTube.  Honestly it is some of the funniest stuff I have ever seen.  I have to admit I am a Ramsay fan.  I like the persona the guy shows on tv.  He grouches, yells and calls people names.  I do not know if this is what he is like in his daily life, but his tv life is great.  I hated my experience I had at Ramsay's Steak in Vegas but I like the guy.  Back to the show, the restaurant he went to help, wowie.... these people are some of the most dynamic people I have ever seen on reality tv.  The owners are in denial and are flat out cray-cray.  Check it out for the hilarity factor.

This is all for tonight.  There are more shows to go over but for tonight, I think I have put you through enough.
