Why has Mikey Shaved off his eyebrows?

with one comment

Do you even know who Mikey is? Mikey Havoc perhaps, the godfather of irreverent TV from NZ? Naw, it’s some schmuck from Big Brother, which I’m not watching, so sorry if you’ve ended up here, after using Mikey + eyebrow as your Google keyword search.

This week I’m:

Taping (Well Sky+-ing) Criminal Justice,

Watching random BBC shows, Tribal Wives (Quite good, but I had to flip over when the Chief killed the goat and I got sick of past alcoholic Lana crying, so did the tribe, but in a friendly way, “Oh my god she is crying again”), Bears in the Woods (Giant Pandas, Grizzly Bears, Bears fishing) and the inevitable Wimbledon tennis-fest.

Waiting for the finale of Brothers & Sisters (No it’s not incest, Rebecca isn’t a Walker after all! Does anyone else think everytime Calista Flockhart comes onscreen, she’s married to Indiana Jones?)

Still taping Location, Location, Location – three weeks running now

Testing the new E! reality timewaster, Denise Richards’ It’s Complicated – It’s not, she seems kinda normal.

Enjoying sports event song montages – they’re the best bits, no matter what the song.

Looking forward to the first Tri Nations rugby game, All Blacks vs South Africa at the crack of dawn on Saturday. Nothing like the Haka to make you feel patriotic over your breakfast.

Wimbledon & Glastonbury

Seems BBC is getting smarter with their interactive offerings, although the presenters are still a step behind. Tim Henman and Mac were chatting away on the Interactive service, unaware it would seem that we could see them too, as they gestured and giggled (mostly Henman) and saluted passing players, adding an extra dimension and making them both more likeable.

Glastonbury – how long til they phase out Edith Bowman and we’ve got a one man Zane Lowe show?

One idea for interactive would be to have any conversation from the guests in the ‘Green Room’ on Johnathon Ross coming up as subtitles whilst we watch Ross’ ‘lewd‘ antics. It’s a dangerous path for Ross to keep at – soon he’s going to become such a dirty uncool old man that the naughtiness of Graham Norton’s show will no longer be an issue, and there’s no contest for who is funnier and a better caretaker for their guests.
