Bing Law 101

Posted in Must See TV, Work at 8:10 am by Faith

After taking a phone call from a prospective client for a criminal defense matter (the fact-gathering interview has already taken place):

Faith: (to supervising attorney) Could this guy BE any guiltier?

Yes, if I’m going to practice criminal defense, I’ve decided to master the art of practicing law as only Chandler Bing could.

Hate Mail

Posted in Guilty Pleasures, Must See TV, Rants at 8:34 am by Faith

In order to decompress from some of my pending Bar-Exam stress, I’ve been streaming old episodes of Celebrity Fit Club 5. I just got done watching the season finale during a break today. All I can really say about it is this (and I’m fully aware I’m something like 2 months late with this observation)…

Screech, (oh, I’m sorry… DUSTIN DIAMOND) you are the BIGGEST DOUCHEBAG I have ever seen in all my years. And I’ve met my fair share of douchebags. You constantly amaze me at the lengths you’ll go to in order to extend your 15 minutes of fame. From your “leaked” sex tape (yeah, we ALL know that YOU leaked it… the only one proud of that nasty schlong is you…) to your “Save My House From Foreclosure” campaign (which in itself was majorly tacky, especially considering that my sources tell me you weren’t even CLOSE to losing your house and the whole thing was just a publicity stunt), to your proclamations that you were “THE STAR” of Celebrity Fit Club 5… I’ve never seen such a publicity whore SO DESPERATE for attention.

There’s a reason that you were the only cast member to be in ALL of the Saved by the Bell spin-offs: It’s because you’re annoying, a sub-par actor, and frankly, no one wants to see your ugly mug anymore.

I didn’t even start watching CFC because of you. I watched because it thought it would be fun to see Marcia from The Brady Bunch… and because my brother listens to quite a bit of Cledus T. Judd‘s work… and because even though I was a die-hard Claymate, I also rooted for Kimberely Locke on American Idol 2. And who in the hell can forget Tiffany, Da Brat, and Warren G… all musicians who had pretty big hits during my “generation.” Who the hell were YOU? Some lame ass loser from an annoying Saturday morning television show. Yep, you were the star, all right. (In all fairness, I had NO clue who Ross Matthews was. But he came across better than you did on camera.) You said more annoying things and showed such poor judgment that I was left speechless on more than one occasion. If you dropped dead tomorrow, I would not shed a tear. Please kindly piss off.

Hugs and kisses,

Faith

P.S. I also find it incredibly amusing that you have been the only celebrity on record to lose a domain name dispute to a PARODY site. That, in itself, says everything that needs to be said. The parody site, by the way, ROCKS.

A Good Cry

Posted in Guilty Pleasures, Must See TV at 8:12 am by Faith

So, it’s a little-known secret (well, not so little among my group of friends) that I Tivo Dawson’s Creek every morning. The beauty of Tivo is that I don’t necessarily HAVE to watch it every day. As I’ve been super busy lately, I’ve been stockpiling the episodes and then sit down and have a little mini-marathon.

I didn’t see the series finale of Dawson’s Creek when it originally aired. This was mainly because I was pissed off back in the day that Joey chose Pacey over Dawson (what was that? The end of Season Three?) Subsequently, I swore off the show. Fast forward quite a few years. Dawson’s Creek is now enjoying a daily morning run on TBS, one of the few GOOD cable channels I get. Therefore, it makes sense that I naturally began Tivoing it.

I just got done watching the series finale. Personally, I’ve been disappointed with series finales, for the most part. THIS one was very different. I didn’t expect it to be so poignant and touching. I didn’t expect it to make me cry buckets. I didn’t expect it to be as good as it was. I didn’t expect to have one of those good “girly cry sessions.” So, to Kevin Williamson and the cast of Dawson’s Creek, I say thank you.

….and did anyone else find it HILARIOUS that Deputy Doug really DID end up being gay?!? I love it….

“Word, Cotton!”

Posted in Guilty Pleasures, Must See TV, Obsessions, Rants at 8:15 am by Faith

I’m not a big fan of this strip, but I thought that FOR ONCE, the artist and I were on the same page:

The rumor has it that the fan campaigns have not worked. The show is “dead,” in the words of it’s creator.

Screw you, The CW.

F***ing Awesome!

Posted in Friends, Guilty Pleasures, Must See TV, Obsessions, Random at 2:20 pm by Faith

I saw my friend Marilyn for the first time since graduating from grad school. She and I have been friends since BEFORE either of us got into grad school. She was two years ahead of me, but we kept in touch (as we were supremely close before she graduated from grad school and got a grown-up job and all.)

Anyway… her present to me hit the nail RIGHT on its head. Observe:

For those of you Buffy, the Vampire Slayer geeks in the audience, yes, it’s a FAITH action figure! Not only is the Faith action figure, it’s the “Graduation Day” action figure! (On my list as one of my favorite episodes of Buffy… EVER.) My only beef is that it looks NOTHING like Eliza Dushku, who played Faith. You may be familiar with her look by now:

Despite that, I do have to say just ONE thing. She could not have gotten me a better graduation gift. Simply put, old friends are not JUST the best friends. Old friends f****n’ RULE!

Thanks, Marilyn! 😀

Tales From the FF 2004: When Life Imitates Art…

Posted in FF 2004, Friends, Fun with Entourage, Hip-Hop Mama, Must See TV, Rants at 8:23 am by Faith

I’ve been pretty forthcoming about the fact that I’m a big Entourage fan. I’ve been surprised at how quickly dialogue from the show has made it’s way into my daily vocab, however. Most of the lines I’ve seemed to have adopted have come from my favorite character, one Mr. Johnny Drama. However, you have to admit that it’s always a bit interesting when life imitates art.

Case in point: I was driving with Hip Hop Mama down in “the Valley” the other day. As we were cruising down the road, I noticed someone tailgating me, despite the fact that I was driving well above the speed limit:

Faith: Is it really necessary for this guy to drive UP my ass?
Hip-Hop Mama: (laughing)
Faith: (watching the guy in the rear view, getting more and more agitated) Seriously! This is effin’ ridiculous!
Hip-Hop Mama: (still laughing)
Faith: (had enough– yanks her car over to the side of the road and lets tailgating vehicle pass before charging back on the road and tailgating the vehicle that just passed her.)
Hip-Hop Mama: Okay, Faith. Do we really want to be picking a fight with Deliverance here?
Faith: (agitated) Was it really necessary for them to be driving UP MY ASS?
Hip-Hop Mama: Okay, settle down, Drama!
Faith: (starting to chuckle) Hold me back, Turtle. (car in front of her slams on his brakes, causing Faith to slam on the brakes in the FF 2004– Faith and Hip-Hop Mama lurch forward) ….FUCKING VALLEY, MAN!
Hip-Hop Mama: (fresh round of laughter…. after a moment, Faith joins in.)

…I can’t make this stuff up.

….and Another One For My Homie…

Another one bites the dust.

We here at Faith’s Ambition would like to take a moment to mourn the loss of yet another great television show that’s being pulled before it’s time. Yesterday, The CW announced that it was canceling Veronica Mars.

Veronica Mars is off the air, yet crap like One Tree Hill is renewed for another yet another season of crap? *shaking head* I guess it really IS true what they say. Americans are idiots.

Hump-Day Hottie!

Posted in Hotties, Hump Day Hotties, Must See TV at 9:03 am by Faith

I’ve been watching a lot of Buffy, the Vampire Slayer lately. It’s a good show. And for some reason, EVERY crush I’ve ever had seems to get compared to this week’s Hump Day Hottie.

Sure, I know that Buffy and Angel were soulmates, and I know that Buffy and Spike had some smokin’ chemistry (and sex)… but in my heart, I will ALWAYS harbor a place for Buffy and her soldier, Riley Finn. Yeah, the relationship was pretty much doomed from the start, but you can’t deny the hotness that he carries. In honor of my love for Buffy: The Riley Years, I present this week’s Hump Day Hottie, Marc Blucas.

It’s only a screenshot, but he’s a got a smokin’ bod to go with that face, too. Scout’s honor.
