Buzz off 2010

It's the last mañana of 2010. I am sitting on Enrico's floor while he lays in bed. We're going to attempt to go dancing tonight in Philadelphia to celebrate the ending of the year. And while I wait for him to awake from his peaceful slumber, I am nostalgic and reflecting on all that occurred during the past 365 days...le sigh...

...Okay...enough of the melodramatic memory crap. Basically, 2010 was a clusterfuck of emotions, events and changes. Some good, others not...for multiple reasonz it will be a year I will always remember. I made friends, I lost friends. I worked incredibly hard and had my first real taste of what it means to be a grown-up adult real person. I spent a lot of time wiff my lurrrrved ones, but also made sure I had enough freedom to myself to keep from going nutzo.

And as always, I watched a lot of shit, read a lot of shit and listened to a lot of shit. Thanks for all the good schtuff, 2010! Now get your feeble ass outta my sight...I got some 2011 ass to go start kicking.

But before I got make 2011 my bitch, I decided to help you all relive my 2010 year in entertainment, by putting together these handy (not-so-much) & exciting (probably not) slideshows of all the books, movies & music I experienced dis year! Enjoy ( of you watch?!)!

What I Watched Dis Year:

What I Read Dis Year:

What I Listened To Dis Year:

What about youuuu folks?! What books/movies/albums did you enjoy this year?! Are you excited for 2011?? Raise your glass to hoping that it doesn't blow chunks!

Xtinamas Home Moviez!

I hope y'all had a beautiful holiday! Mine was for def def deferishonishez relaxxxing and enjoyable. And since I am such a giver, I thought that I share with the 5 of you that still come here all of you beautiful chorizoz some HoMe MoViEs I taped during my visit to my parent's house!

No Christmas would be complete without a sexxxy, decked out (fake) Xmas tree, just how no Christmas would be complete with a demented, perverted possessed talking Santa doll! My mom has had this terrifying Santa for yearz and no matter how many times he talks, he never seemz to run outta batteriez. Pure evil, I tell you...

So after us chillunz all snuggled into our beds [read as: air mattress & couch], we drifted off into slumberville where we imagined candied laughter & sunshine kisses [aka I had a dream I was diagnosed with cancer]. My sisters Cindy, Melody [feat. fiance John] & I all awoke to discover stockings stuffed full of wonder and delight! As we began gutting the living hell out of our oversized socks, I began to entertain my lurrrved ones with my spoken-word interpretation of Ali Lohan's "Christmas Magic." Apparently, my talents go unappreciated...

Then we all opened our giftz & hugged & thanked one another & blah blah blah. We spent the rest of the day gorging the blackholes that had become our stomachs, drinking 'nog & cider and watching some of the most gawd-awful movies I've ever seen (the worst was a sequel to the dumbazz film adaptation of that artarded "Christmas Shoes" song).

As I was getting ready to bounce and make it back to my house before the blizzard (which is currently barricading me inside & will for totez ruin my life tomorrow morning when I try to get my azz up to Nueva Nueva for work!), mi madre asked if she could record a holiday wish to all of you bloggy readerz [feat. special-time shout-out to Anne Marie]. Isn't she just so dahling?!

Every year, December comes...

Well, well,'s that time o' da year again. Time for us to rape our forests, decorate sum treez, purchase discounted expensive crap for our lurrrved ones & enjoy the company of family y amigoz.

I know that there are a bunch of scroogez out there that whine & bitch about how lame Xmas is, but whateva...they obvz don't carry Christmas magic [read as: a lot of booze] in their gut on December 25th! I have just finished wrapping all of my family's giftz [feat. Star, OK! & People magazine "wrapping paper"] and I'm about to ship out to la casa de mis padres, but I wanted to bequeath to you, my bloggy audience, some interweb holidaze cheer!

So scroll below to enjoy some yuletide delights from Ke$ha, the Osbourne famile & of course, Ali Lohan.

Now if you can exxxcuse me, it's time to get drunk, eat & then open some shit. TANXBAIHAVEAGREATHOLIDAY!!!!!!

Monday Muse of 2010 Showdown!

Wowza...we are done to the final 3. Even though I found Movie Concessionz to be unbelievably delectable and educational, apparently the rest of you have no taste cherished the other three more! And while we bid farewell to LaToya London Chris Daughtry Jason Castro our animated cinematic treatz, we must suffer though our sadness and remember dat we all still gotza jerb to do!

The goddamn New Year is right around the corner, and a Monday Muse Of 2010 has yet to be chosen! Our three finalists are all fierce contenderz, and I for serial could see any one of the them elegantly chiseled [aka GIF-pasted] onto the side of mah blog, right underneath Steven the Beautiful.

So let's get to bizzzzznezz. You know the drill...links below...poll beneath that...VOTE FOR YOUR FAVO!!!

I know I have been slightly MIA the past week...but I swurr it isn't mah fault! Last weekend, while I was trying to illegally watch The Big C attempting to donate large sums o' money to starving chillun foundationz, I somehow contracted a terrible new computer virus! It was one of those awful bastardoz that embed themselves deep inside your computer and inundate you with pop-ups.

This one in partix kept alerting me that my computer was about to esssplode and all my memory was shriveling up and that if I didn't purchase this bullshiz program, my world as I know it would come to an end. It also blocked all of my current virus software from running and fixxxing it. Luckily, Josh Is Trashy reader Justin is a computer expert or sumfing and sent me some spyware removal tool that I believe exorcised that virus from my poor laptop.

And while I am beyond thrilled that I got that effing bullcrap out of my computer, I am annoyed that I ended up wasting a good 5 hours farting around with it. It ticks me off that there are lame ass n3rd paradez that sit around all day making pointlessly obnoxious computer viruses, just to ruin my life.

My seething anger eventually mellowed into a pitying frustration. I began to brainstorm a plethora of things that a st00pid, ugly, out-of-shape, malicious bastard n3rd festival could do instead of inventing debilitating digital diseases...

Use your advanced (and misplaced) intelligence for good by brainstorming cost-effective & widely beneficial ways to help the homeless. Ideas? Holiday snack packs and insulated sidewalk-friendly sleeping bags.

Use your fancy fingawork to learn an instrument. Instead of typing out diabolical codes of disaster [feat. ruining many peepz' afternoons!], how about plunking about on a piano a delicious melody?! The first time you play "White Houses" all the way through, it will be like you've just been reborn!

Enrich your cultural mind and go see a critcally-acclaimed dark, psychologically provocative artsy thriller [ie Black Swan, Black Swan or Black Swan]. Then go home and have a 60-minute analytical discussion about the finer points of subtle symbolism throughout.

Why don't you extend your life by 10 years and start exercising to werk off that five-Hot-Pockets-for-dinner lard flab you've procured from yearz of over-eating greasy shit in front of your evil methlab of a computer?

I'm sure that since you started on your condemnable downward spiral into cyber-terrorism, you've lost touch wiff all of your amigoz. I'm sure if you picked up the telefono and gave dem a ring and apologized for ignoring them in exxxchange for ruining everyone's life via hackinating the interwebz, they'd forgive you and want to rekindle your friendship.

You readerz got any ideaz, just in case any virus-scheming buttholez stumble upon my blog?! Let's deter cyber chaos!

My Musical ABCs - M!

Musical ABCs are here again! Sorry for the delay...I was gonna post ova the weekend, but due to an obnoxious computer virus (more on that later) and my unwavering addiction to Donkey Kong Country Returns, I have had to postpone the entry until today. I hope y'all ain't too pizza-ed @ me! may now share your magically miraculous and musically magnificent songs that start with that fatass letter, Mr. M!

"Me and Bobby McGee" by Janis Joplin

"Feeling good was good enough for me."

Surprised? Didjoo tink I only dabbled in the musical stylingz of current *popstarz*?! Thought I didn't have an appreciation for the classic rock n' rollerz of yesteryear?! Well, to quote Kelly Clarkson, "You thought wrong"!

Not only is dis my favorite M song of all time, but it is also my third favorite song EVER of ANY letter (right behind my choices for B & J)! As we all should know, the fantastico Janis Joplin is one of the best singers that ever existed. Her voice makez mah effing skin crawl and shivers my bones to their very core. I am beyond saddened by the fact that she died sooooOOoOoOo early in her life and left us wiff only a handful of her tunez.

And not only is her voice perfecto, the lyrix to "Me and Bobby McGee" are some of the rawest and most heart-shredding I've ever heard! I want to have a busted flat in Baton Rouge! This tune was implanted into my skull back when I was still a wee little tot, and my appreciation for it has only grown and blossomed into a full-blown obsession as the years passed by.

"Mississippi" by Train
"More Than a Woman" by Aaliyah
"Maybe" by Kelly Clarkson

Monday Muse of 2010 Showdown!

We were down to the final 5. The votez were cast. Now 1 of the Monday Muse of 2010 finalists has to pack their bags and shamefully walk off the stage [feat. teary-eyed overdramatic video death montage set to Daughtry's "Home"]. And I'm sorry Yatta...but your shit is apparently funky & played out. Thanks for all the joy you brought to our lives. Now get the hell out of my face.

Now we're down the the final cuatro! There was a clear leader in the voting pool last week. But with one contestant axxxed, and things getting shaken up, I for def def deffers can see an upset [ala Jennifer Hudson] taking place before the year is out! Who will Ryan Seacrest murder nexxxt week? Don't let it be your favorite!

I'm addicted to yoooouuuu.

For serial, I tried to think of my life before I exchanged it for cyber-living over the interwebz. Before I started creating countless online profiles and spending hour upon hours doing nuffin' but "liking" & "retweeting" & "scrobbling" & all that other bullshit, and all I saw was a scrawny, sad little kid crying himself to sleep each night [read as: a healthy and active young'un who had friends and enjoyed a plethora of different activites].

Back when I only used the computer to commit homicidal death houses in The Sims and Saw-worthy murda contraptions in Roller Coaster Tycoon, I would never think of spending horaz surfing...da web.

But then I got my own computer, a faster internet connection & moved outta mah parent's house. Now NOTHING will stop me from wasting countless hours I can never get back (sob, sob) on the web.

A Facebook, Twitter, Blogspot, MySpace, LiveJournal, My-Diary, Angelfire, Photobucket, Netflix, Skype account, Last.FM, Tumblr & YouTube later, and I must say that I have become just a tad preoccupied with da interwebz. So I wanted to get help (not really)! So I found dis online test that tells you how dependent you are on the interwebz.

My score? Only a 57%! Maybe I'm not a lost cause (or maybe I am, who cares?!)! Let's make our own little make-shift episode of mutual Intervention & share our stories of struggle over the Internet addiction we for obvz all suffer from! And don't try and deny it and say you have a healthy relationshit with the Internet...pages upon pages of Facebook thread comments, viral YouTube vidz and annoying FarmVille updates really beg to differ!

Monday Muse of 2010 Showdown!

Holy nutz! After months y months of voting, we've come so close to picking the Monday Muse of 2010!!! I'm so exciterbiked that I could scream [read as: yawn delicately]! Our five finalists are below and have each pummeled to death the other 34,958 Muses I've featured on my blog this year [side note: that number is a rough estimate aka I just pounded the keyboard]. They are all of the highest caliber of elegance, beauty, hilarity and passion, but only one can be the Justin Timberlake of the group. Who will triumph and who will falter and fail [ala Lance "Asstronaut" Bass, JC Chasez, Joey Fat-One & that other guy who looks like a woodland creature]?

For the next month, we will eliminate one bitch each week. Fight to keep your favo in the competition. Who is your supastar?!

Movie Concessionz

Awesome Toyz

Missy the Cat

Next week, only four of these lovelies will still be standing. One will be dragged to Hell (not in good way). Save your favorite from certain torture!

Jo$hr!co Double Feature!!

As you know, one of the world's hottest up-and-coming sadtime acoustic guitar strumming duoz is the incomparable Jo$hr!co, who I just happen to be one half of. We combine meloncholy and depression with loneliness and tearz to make a truly original sound unlike anything you've ever heard before!

I know, I know...we're blowing up faster than you can say "You guys aren't blowing up, you've only recorded like, two fucking cover songs that no one on You Tube cared about," but we still remember our rootz. And that's why we are debuting our pair of brand farting new videos on Josh Is Trashy & Hotel Tuesday. was BEGGING us for the exclusive vid premiere, but since we lurrrrve you bloggy peepz soOoOoOoO much, we declined.

And since Jo$hr!co was snubbed [ala Ke$ha & AbLisa] for this year's Grammy Award for Best New Artist, I guess E. Copterz + I will just have to work exxxtra hard this year to prove to the recording academy that we deserve their golden gramophones!

So please look below for our cover of Kara Dioguardi's [aka the American Idol judge that isn't fat, drugged, British or a lesbanana] non-hit single "Terrified"! After that, head on over to Hotel Tuesday for our rendition of Katy Perry's rendition of Fountains of Wayne's "Hackensack."

Monday Muse of 2010 Showdown!

OMFLIPPIN'GAWDERCOPTERSKATEZ! We are down to the last semi-finalz death match before the nexxxt round in the Monday Muse of 2010 Showdown! Next week we'll take the five top vote-getters from the past month, and dump their azzez down into a lion pit of d00m. Each week we'll eliminate another until we're down to the ONE MUSE TO RULE THEM ALL!

And could one of dis week'z Muses be the champion of 2010?! I DON'T FUCKING KNOW YET! Both of these week's assholes inspirations taught us a great deal about ourselves. One learned us in how to cope with loss and how we should never give up hope (or some shiz like dat). The other gave us a birds & beez lesson in how our sexuality blossoms into importance once we hit puberty [read as: get horny over some douche].

Which one meant the most to YOUR life?! Which can't you live wiffout?! Get ur vote on, ho.

Missy the Cat vs. The Dirrty Little Mermaid

The Monday Muse of September 2010: Missy the Cat - the long lost inspiration to all of our dreamz

The Monday Muse of October 2010: The Dirrty Little Mermaid - the outspoken undersea songstress with a libido that could cut glass

VOTE VOTE VOTE! BANG BANG BANG! (that's me shooting at your hoovez until you get your rump into that election booth)

My Musical ABCs! - L

Musical ABCs are back! Now the Thanksgiving Day festivities can actually begin! What better way to repay your gratitude and happiness towards the world than by honoring your favorite songz of all time?! Let's lolligag no longer and lay out the lovely tunes that forever linger luxoriously in our mindz forever. Mr. L, list away!

"Last Beautiful Girl" by Matchbox Twenty

"You'll always be everyone else's girl."

We always remember the first band that we fell hardxxxcore in lurrrve with. The first band whose entire catalog is intimately etched into our brain, that no matter how many artists we listen to in our lifetime, will forevz be an important part of our history. For me it's the Goo Goo Dolls and the creator of mah favorite "L" song, Matchbox Twenty.

Big in the '90s on modern rock radio, with a crossover to pop radio when rock stations started playing HaWdEr RaWk, Matchbox Twenty had numerous hit singlez and four multi-platinum albums. They are Grammy nominees and singer/lead songwriter Rob Thomas, has won several awardz for his lyrical werding talentz.

I've often pondered which of MB20's albumz I would consider to be my favorite. And this installment's Musical ABC is one of the major reasonz I always lean towards the band's second album, Mad Season. The song "Last Beautiful Girl" won my heart before I even heard it/got home from the store. I remember picking up the album at the record store, reading the song titles on the back and LOVING THE TITLE to death. I made it my mission to listen to that song first and fall in love.

And I did not disappoint myself! I did fall in love with it. The track is a spiteful and ultimately enpowering kiss-off anthem for any peepz that have been double-kris-krossed by any dumb ex-whorez that they use to date. If you have a bitter break-up with your former significant other, don't cry like a bitch and wedge yourself under your ex's refridgerator like I did once, just take a letter opener and gouge the lyrix to this song into the side of their new car!

(please ignore the dumbazz Twilight fuckery that's accompanying the song)


"The Lights and Buzz" by Jack's Mannequin
"Let You Down" by Dave Matthews Band
"Lollipop" by Mika
"Love You Down" by INOJ

Eat Turkey, Be Merry!

Hooray! TANXGIVERZ IS HERRE! So's not my favorite holiday (that's a tie between Christmas + Robert Downey Jr.'s birfday), but I still appreciate it for getting me away from the office and planting my ass down with mis padres and my sisters for an entire day. I got to my parent's house around 9:30 to them putting that p00r bird into the oven...

After chatterboxxxing with my parents for awhile, my one sister Cindy finally woke up right when my other sister Melody arrived at the casa de mis padres wiff her fiance John. We immediately planted our nalgaz onto the couch and proceeded to watch [read as: verbally assault every aspect of] the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade [feat. scurrrry ass floats, a bizarre Kanye West cameo & absolutely obnoxious commentary from that bitch that played Tracy Turnblad in Hairspray on broadway. Marissa Jared Winkmeyer or some shit].

Then we drank some spiked cider, chuggled down wine, and ATE ATE ATE ATE ATE the shiz outta the beautiful foodie spread that my loving parents whipped up. Seriously, my mom & dad churn out Tanxgiverz Dinna like it's nuffin'. It would legit take me prox 2 weekz to like open the cranberry sauce. I gobbled so much grub that my stomach esssssploded and I started to get drag to food hell until my family took my ass to the hospital to pump it clean. Here is a scientific X-Ray of what my stomach looked like:

Then they sucked all that comida outta me and I was sent home to eat a whole other nother serving! MMMMMMM! We ended the night playing tunez for each other via YouTube and watching Christina Aguilera bark about how grrrrreat Burlesque (I'm seeing it tomorrow!) is on Chelsea Lately.

I hope you've had a glorious holiday that was nuffin' @ all like this following video that I found online earlier today when I typed in "Thanksgiving Family Dinner"...

Gonna get their tails wagging...

What are my two favorite things in the whole world? Complaining about my life & being jellerz of peepz that have more $$$ than myself Pop music & cute animalz...DUH!

And as we're all aware, Katy Perry is the "new queen of pop." And as we also all know, mi gato Baberz and my god-child puppy Penelope are two of the most adorable things in existence. And what is the best way to exxxpress your never-ending love for something?! Singing delicately of your adoration to your loved onez [aka SCREAMING into their ear holez]!

So that's why I am presenting all you bloggy peepz wiff some home videoz of mine where I gush over the animalz in my life that own my heart. Try not to fall TOO in love wiff me. I might have a dreamy voice, but I am a soul-crusher. Trust me!

Blogger Appreciation...

...I really deserve it. I mean...I try and post at least tres dias a week, regardless of mah crazzzy work schedule and whether or not I have anything at all decent to fart in your direction. I try and make my blog list roundz at least twice a week and sprinkle derrrriciously thoughtful commentz about. I spend hourz and hourz slaving over my laptop, JUST TO MAKE ALL OF YOU BITCHES like me cuz I am really insecure and your comments really do mean the world to me HAPPY! And what do I get in return?! NOTHING [aka lotz of lurrrve/attention/support]! Goddamn you all the H-E-Double Hockeystix! I am for obz joshing wiff all you beautiful bitchez. I love you all and you're a great audience and tank you, tank you for consistently reading this crapfestival garbage I pollute the interwebz wiff every week.

And since it's largely cuz of you readerz that I am still so dedicated to churning out postz, I wanted to make y'all a little more of a permanent part to Josh Is Trashy. So that's why I am asking all of those who are innnnerested to send me a drawing/picture/Photoshop masterpiece that represents the theme and message of mah little slice of cyber heaven [aka I write like an idiot and bitch about the world, make fun of online shit & talk insessantly about pop culture].

When the new year rollz around, I'ma work on incorporating all the submissionz into permanent residency somewhere on my site. Need an idea of what I'm loooooking for? My sister's fiance John already sent me one:

Things are for def def defferz kicking up in the race for Monday Muse of 2010! The outpouring of votez makez me feel like all this time I waste dedicate to mah silly little blog is really worth it.

...Okay...pull your crapz gotz a jerb to do. And that duty is to introduce dis week's competitors.

Both of deez Muses entertained my gringo azz when I was just a tot. They remind me of a simpler time when all I had to worry about was playing wiff mah toyz & watching uneducated loud-mouf strangaz on TV get berated for simply existing.

I hope you ate your Wheaties dis mañana, cuz you're gonna need to concentrate hard and pick which Muse is the better!!

Judge Judy vs. Awesome Toyz

The Monday Muse of May 2010: Judge Judy - deliverer of sassy judgement wiff a side of venemous spitfire

My Musical ABCs! - K

Here we are folkz! Another round of Musical ABCs! Aren't you foaming @ the mouf with joy?! I know I am but it's largely cuz I gotz myself some ginger cookies con leche! Let's try and kick up the kraptastically kruddy komment kount we've had in recent weekz. Keep kalling out your favorite songs that Mr. K startz off for ya!

"Konstantine" by Something Corporate

"I'm slipping in between you and your big dreams."

My choice for dis week's Musical ABC is for deferishonishes the most epic song to be featured in my alphabeta-selectionz. It's prox 32 hourz [read as: 9-10 minz] long & is basically the psuedo-emo pop-punk band Something Corporate's opus. I first heard this painfully depresso espresso tune back when I was a freshman in college, and each line was respectively worn-out as instant messenger away messages.

I love to cry (probably the 439,583rd time I've said this on mah blog) and this song is just one gargutuan tear factory. Start blasting dis shiz and I need three jumbo towels to mop up the lake that forms out of my salty eye waterz. When I started my creative writing minor, I'd listen to SoCo (as the kewl kiddoz call them) all the time, especially "Konstantine." Cuz what better way to write effectively relatable yet endearingly personal werdingz than by listening to a band who specializez in such a songwriting style? I even tried to learn it on the piano. Then I realized that it is waaaaay beyond my capable talentz (largely cuz I don't got no capable talentz).

It's one of mah favo songz ever and is best listened to right after your heart is broken, while you stare @ long-long-ago fotografias of you and your ex-significant other with half a bottle of wine in your gut and enough tissues to clog the San Andreas Fault (trust me...I know from experience). Then you awake from your "Konstantine"-coma, call up your best grrrlfriendz and eat pint after pint of Ben & Jerry's [aka sadness medicine]. Broken heart mended!


"Kids" by MGMT
"Kings and Queens" by 30 Seconds to Mars
"Knock Down Walls" by Tonic
"Ken Lee" by Valentina Hasan

So like...what's ya sign??

I've tried to deny it, but I admit that I am full-time believer in ways of astrology. Okay...I don't really put much value on that prediction horoscope fuckery that some peepz swear by (though that doesn't stop me from reading mine in the back of OK! Magazine whenever I'm in the grocery store line). However, the belief that your personality is partially decided based on when you were born during the year is sumfing I buy into.

Think about it! During the year, the Earth is at different orbital levels and shit like gravity or tides or some other nature crap like that all change, and when you're chilling out in your motha's stomach, you could be altered in how your fragile brainz and body are formed.

Oh, I can see you rolling your eyez all over the place...but I recently checked out the Pisces (my sign) page @ and wowza! The description is pretty precise in describing moi!

Let's check out some stated factz about Pisces, and see if this shit really matches up to WhO mAh ReFLeCtIoN sAyz I Am iNsiDE!

"Pisces alternate between reality and non-reality...many people associate pisces with dreams and secrets."

As we all know, I for serialz spend the majority of mah pointless wittle life daydreaming about a grand fantastical world where I am successful, rich, well-loved & famous. Since I highly doubt any of deez adjectivez will actually ever been used in the same sentence as mah name, I really do find myself blankly staring out into space like a dead person while my brainz pulse about with st00pid American Idol fantasies & dramatic Oscar acceptance speechez.

"These folks are selfless, spiritual."

I don't know if I'd really call myself patient enough to be considered religious by any stretch, but I do like to relate to peepz. I do believe in the practice of karma or whatever. I open the door for old bitchez and I compliment whores on their outfitz (if they're slutty enough), cuz who doesn't like to be told that their hot pink gummy bracelets match their smeared lipschtick just right?! In return, I've had people compliment my personality/sense o' humor/charity my shoes and a toddler tell me that my smile "wasn't ugly."

"They're not quite pushovers, but they're certainly sensitive. Yes, they could cry you a river if the circumstances were right." I am constantly on the verge of crying. Anything can pretty much set me off. Stubbed toe? Cry. Hard day @ werx? Cry! Cute baby/cat/Penelope? CRY! Pretending I'm okay with it all & acting like there's nuffin' wrong?! CRY!!!!!!!!!!! Shedding tearz ova the good, bad, happy & sad has become so customary en mi vida that I can actually force my ojoz to vomit up salty droplets of sorrow whenever I will them to! It's a great way to get what I want [read as: it doesn't fool anyone and just endz up annoying everyone around me]!

"More relaxation for the Fish comes in the way of sports, specifically water sports."

Okay...mountainz of sorriez to the zodiac king or whoever, but dis right here is so not me in any way dat I'm thinking about forcing mi madre to rebirth me during another zodiac month span (details still being ironed out about how to do this). I suck @ swimming & I blow hard frothy chunks @ playing sports. Combing the two? Probably a water-based death [feat. a lot of pain]. Sportz? Pish...I'll wait till Idol comez back on, tank you berry mucho!

Monday Muse of 2010 Showdown!

The Monday Muse of 2010 Showdown! started off like gangbustaz last week! The race was neck y neck between Yatta! & Maxine Swaby. Who won? IIIIII'LL NEEEEVEEEER TEEEELLL (until the first week of Deciembre).

But enough looking into the past...we gotza pay attention to the RIGHT NOW! This week's Monday Muse gladiators both have one thing in common: They're both DERRRICOUS (?)! Popped cornz, candiez, hawt dawgz, ice pops, burnt whale blub. MMMMMM.

There is nuffin' I like more than sitting down for a high-budget thriller [IE I Know Who Killed Me starring La Lohan] with a nice steaming bowl of all of the treatz above and gaining 20 LBs. Actaully, by the end of that movie, my head was sooooo filled with annoyed frustration and boredom the engaging plot twists and the gorg theatrical stylingz of the cast, that my head ESSSPLODED just like this week's whale!

It was quite a mess. But enough about's time to soak-in, study and suit ourselvez up for the voting booth...GO GO GO!

Movie Concessionz vs. The Exploding Whale

The Monday Muse of March 2010: Movie Concessionz- eloquent etiquette teachers who bring the rock and/or roll [read as: violent threats] to the classroom

The Monday Muse of April 2010: The Exploding Whale - aerodynamic sea mammal who owns the night like the 4th of July

Remember all that forced holiday joy & fun-time magic we all partook in last year with my ingenious Bloggy Gift Exchange Bonanza?! Well, after chatterboxxxing wiff my favorite person ever [aka Michelle McKeesport], I decided that we should try another round of non-denominational secret gifting wiff each other.

I know that all of us have been mad st00pid busy this year what wiff new jerbz, peepz moving + life just constantly getting crazzzier, so I thought that dis might be a nice way for all of us to reconnect and remember how much we lurrrve each other's cyber-companionship!

So if you're innnnerested in partaking in this year's festivities (you're so effing lame if you don't!), then comment on this blog with a reason why you love Josh Is Trashy exxxpressing your desire to participate and either Michelle or I will get in touch in a week or two to give you your surprise gifty amigo. Hooray for holiday wonder!

Pop Star Pride

Did you have a shetty day today? Did werx get you down? Fight wiff a lurrrved one? Feel under-appreciated? Does your life sometimez seem like a swirlin' toilet bowl of frustration where things always seem just a touch too overwhelming to handle?

I know I've been quite melancholerz lately & I know that what wiff the recent spike in gay suicidez, that a lot of other peepz have been struggling through their livez as well. But what do I turn to when everything else in the world seemz mad effing LAME CITY?! MUSIC!

And luckily for me (and after dis entry, you too), tres of my favorite pop *starz* have recently birfed some feel-good anthemz into the top 40 airwavez and I've found mahself locking down deez three jamz on repeat whenever I find myself in a rough spot. Partly inspired by the plight of da gayz, P!nk, Ke$ha and Katy Perry have given me [feat. the world] some hopeful tunez that inspire a brighter tomorrow and remind us all that WE ARE SOOOO WORTH IT! Check 'em out, PLEASE!:

"Raise Your Glass" - P!nk

Raise your glass if you are wrong in all the right ways!

Leave it to Alecia Beth Moore [aka P!NK] to make a song honoring all the under-dawgz [feat. dirrty little freakz] of the world. Never backing away from opposition, P!nk's latest top ten single (her 10th!) is an ode to being proud of all your quirky differencez and lurrrving yourself even if you're gay, a different color, overweight, a n3rd festival, a milk cow or whatever it is that peepz try and put you down for being. P!nk wavez all of our fReAk fLaGz high!

"We R Who We R" - Ke$ha

You know we're superstars.

Sure, peepz are saying dis is just another party-drunkathorn from everyone's favorite trashgrrrl, Kesha Sebert [aka KE$HA], but the song (that just debuted @ mothereffing #1 on the Billboard Hot 100!) was written after all those gay teens committed suicide last month. You may not know, but Ke$ha has prox a bajillon gay fans (DURHZ), and da song encourages anyone that feels ostracized to flip da bird to all of dem haterz and then get their nalgaz on the dancefloor.

"Firework" - Katy Perry

Baby, you're a firework. Come on, let your colors burst.

We all fell in lurrrve with summer thanks to "California Gurls." We all fell in lurrrve wiff each other to "Teenage Dream." But it seemz like dis year'z pop queen, Katy Hudson [aka Katy Perry] is now demanding the we LURRVE OURSELVEZ! Don't act like you didn't get all soaky-eyed when the fat cholita jumped in the pool or when the cancer kid smiled. Sheesh...could this song/video make my heart snap/crackle/pop anymore?!


So folkz...after listening to these hit jamz, do you suddenly feel inspired to take of the world?! If not then you best give them another listen!

Yatta vs. Maxine Swaby
