Suits Spoilers: Will Harvey & Donna Hook Up This Season? Fri, 30 Jan 2015 21:10:05 +0000 If you are a fan of Suits, it’s quite likely that you have been waiting for Harvey and Donna to turn their professional relationship into a personal one.

While Donna confided in Louis that she did hook up with Harvey once, it appears that her admission might have served as a foreshadow for what to expect later this season.

When asked about whether Harvey will find romance this season, the show’s boss Aaron Korsh was coy.

“There are absolutely romantic allusions in the air… There is some delving into some questions of his romantic future in the last six [episodes]. I think it’s going to be satisfying to some, saddening to others, and not enough for even others,” Korsh said. “I’ll leave it there.”×120.jpg

The Bachelor – Chris: Episode 4 Recap Fri, 30 Jan 2015 21:03:49 +0000

I have to be honest. You guys deserve at least that. So here it is: I spent more time browsing the internet for chicken thigh marinades through this episode than I did paying attention to every little detail like I normally do. Bad blogger. Naughty blogger. But really? Can you blame me?

You’d think with all this making out and extremely high ratio of super-weird (not just crazy, but legit weird) girls to make fun of that it would hold my interest, and I’d be overflowing with material, but as suspected, you know, around the time when I vowed to abandon this blog if Prince Farming was chosen as The Bachelor because he’s soooooo boring….well, I’m bored.

So yeah, you’re not gonna get 4000 words this week where I basically read your mind and say all the things you and your husband or girlfriends sit on the couch together saying the night before (it’s okay, Buddy – I won’t tell the guys you watch!) You’re gonna get a loosely curated list of Things I have to Say About This Week’s Bachelor Episode. Let’s go for a Top 10. Cuz why not?

Things I have to Say About This Week’s Bachelor Episode (in no particular order as told to you by a blogger who was barely paying attention – I know, you give me one task. One task!)


  • Let’s start with the obvious. Ashley I. GET OFF MY SCREEN. Why are we giving this girl so much of our time? Yes, she’s an emotional wreck, a Kardashian prodigy, a virgin-hating virgin, a girl who exits a car with her shorts already undone (cuz that’s…in style?) an over-thinker, and we now know, a Cinderella-obsessed tantrum-having diva, but WHO CARES??? There are so many other girls here, that dare I say, he may actually be building relationships with and I am just SO OVER ASHLEY I. Why is she even still here? Obviously a girl who uses the light of a campfire to touch up her lipstick does not a country girl make. We’re heading into week 5 and we don’t even know all of these girls yet! And let’s just be clear here, Ashley. You’re not a virgin because you’re making some moral choice like Becca to save yourself. You’re a virgin because you can’t find a guy willing to let you cash in your V chip. Big difference.


  • Per point # 1 – who the hell is Samantha? Seriously.


  • Is it normal that I was almost more jealous of the portable steamer the girls got to use to get their outfits prepped than I was of Jade’s whole Cinderella experience? I have drapes I hung like nine years ago which still have the creases. True story.


  • Could it have been any more obvious that Jade was getting the date chosen by the sisters? Who taught these editors about building suspense? I know. Let’s talk to all the girls for three seconds each, but when it’s Jade’s turn, let’s give her ten minutes and throw in some ‘last five minutes of a Full House episode where Stephanie and DJ learn a powerful lesson’ music just to kick it up a notch. What??? Jade got the one on one? You don’t say! Never saw that one coming!


  • Breaking News guys. Kelsey’s a biatch. I’m just going to go out on a limb here. When we first met Kelsey, we obviously felt sick about what happened to her husband. But now, there’s a small part of me thinking the dude is chilling on a beach somewhere, all Shawshank Redemption Zihuatanejo styles, living the high life with a sailboat and a dream. People do fake their own deaths. Just saying. It’s not that I’m judging Kelsey for being out of her comfort zone in the lake and feeling uncomfortable stripping down for the sake of getting Chris’s attention. Totally down with that. But really? You weren’t exactly roughing it. It looked like a full chef’s kitchen had been set up for meal prep and it wasn’t exactly rough terrain. Half the girls were wearing booties! Suck it up, girlfriend. Oh and stop laughing.


  • Along with the theme above of not wanting to strip down with the other girls, can we talk for a second about Kaitlyn’s ass? Was she born doing squats? I think I might have my first girl crush.


  • What the hell is with Carly’s gladiator sandal wedding dress combo? Did you wear them to bring out your snaggletooth?


  • The phrase ‘Alls I can do’. That needs to stop.


  • I suppose at some point I should talk about Chris, right? Though he honestly seemed kind of MIA for lots of the episode, he had some strong moments this week and some weak ones. Weak: A) When he couldn’t come up with anything to say to the first gaggle of group date girls other than that he enjoys seeing them in bathing suits, B) when he incoherently tried to have a conversation with Ashley I while being mouth-raped and decipher her allusion to her virginity while clearly wasted and C) his clear lack of knowledge on how to respond to Ashley S’s one on one time. Strong: A) The highs and lows of his time with Jillian. He starts out his date with her by dropping the bomb that she’s in the Top 3…and then she starts talking…and it all goes south. He handled the whole ‘would you rather’ scenario well, and was pretty clear to her that she wasn’t the one for him (‘was it something I said?’ she ponders while tears made of lactic acid drip out of her dead eyes). And of course B) his heartfelt goodbye to Juelia (Obv I bawled). I appreciate that he took the time to walk her out and sincerely wish her well.


  • Oh Megan. I’m totally on board with creating special moments for you and Chris, especially at the cocktail parties where it’s super competitive. But the fruit thing? It’s not exactly rocket science to blindfold a guy and feed him one of the most common fruits ever. You might as well have given him corn. Shame.


  • BONUS # 11 – I’m a bit concerned about Britt. Totally still love her, but I’m not sure what she was thinking with her whole performance review of Chris at the cocktail party (why are those behaviours being validated?), and while I totally thought your turquoise feather and black double earring thing was cool on week one, now I’m thinking you really only brought those earrings. Time to change it up.

That’s pretty much all I got, guys. But just so you too can benefit from my inability to focus on this episode in its entirety, here are two amazing chicken marinades that you should all make. And of course, they’re not even new ones I sourced while avoiding The Bachelor. They’re ones I’ve been using for years.

The first one is a total go-to – use any kind of chicken, skin on or skinless. I BBQ it or broil it usually. Good for a weeknight or for guests – simple and delicious! Got this Nigella recipe from Oprah (we’re besties) and have been making it for years.


  • 1 butterflied chicken, skin on (or whatever assortment of chicken you’d like)
  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • Juice of 1 lemon (with more lemons for grilling and garnish)
  • 1 red onion cut in various size chunks
  • 6 TBSP olive oil
  • Maldon or sea salt

Season chicken with salt, throw in large zip lock, add olive oil, lemon juice, toss lemon pieces into the bag too, the rosemary needles and the onion. Marinade as long as possible – ideally overnight, at least an hour or two.

BBQ – keep the onions and grill in a basket – amazing, OR bake at 425 for 45 minutes basting occasionally, or if using thinner breasts, broil for 20ish minutes, flipping sides once.

Here’s another amazing marinade that also uses fresh rosemary – who doesn’t love using the whole thing of herbs they bought? I’ve seen variations of this on about a million blogs like this one, where I originally found it, but it’s basically:


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Salt & pepper
  • Fresh rosemary

Season chicken with S&P, whisk liquids together, pour on chicken, season with fresh rosemary and follow same cooking instructions as the other recipe.

Both of these are great in salads too.

Till next week!×120.png

Marvel & Funko Announce Marvel Collector Corps Subscription Box Service Fri, 30 Jan 2015 20:35:10 +0000 Off the current success of collectible subscription boxes, like Loot Crate or Nerd Blox, Marvel & Funko have teamed up to create on of their own.

Funko has collaborated with Marvel to build a first-of-its-kind subscription box service — Marvel Collector Corps — featuring 100% exclusive collectibles, apparel and accessories from some of the biggest events in the Marvel movie and comic book universe. The debut box ships in April and will feature items from Marvel’s ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron,’ including an exclusive 6” Iron Man Hulkbuster Pop! vinyl collectible only available through Marvel Collector Corps. The box contents also include a T-shirt featuring one of four exclusive designs, an additional stylized vinyl collectible and two premium accessories. The box represents over $50 of value.

Boxes will ship every two months and Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ will be featured in the June box. The service includes two levels — the basic Collector level and the Founder level. Customers who sign up for the Founders program, which includes a six-box subscription, will receive an exclusive Founder Statue on the 12-month anniversary of their first box shipment. As long as their membership does not lapse, Founders will continue to receive a new exclusive figure every year on their anniversary.

Funko has since confirmed that this will be the only way to get a POP! Vinyl of the Hulkbuster. I, for one, have already signed up for the Founder’s Level!

Video Of The Day: Conan‘s “Clueless Gamer” With Seahawks’ Marshawn Lynch and Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski Fri, 30 Jan 2015 19:19:01 +0000 This week, one of the big topics of discussion as part of the Super Bowl Media Days (other than Deflate-gate) has been about Marshawn Lynch and his interview responses, or lack thereof. The star running back of the Seattle Seahawks, Lynch (a.k.a. “Beast Mode“) has been subdued during the media day frenzy with responses like, “I’m just here so I won’t get fined.” The phrase may not be what the NFL top brass wants to see heard, but it has become a funny catchphrase thanks to Super Bowl halftime entertainer Katy Perry who used it in a joking manner when she spoke to the media.

Knowing that Lynch doesn’t like to talk with reporters, check him out on the latest “Clueless Gamer” segment from Conan O’Brien‘s late-night program. Here he, along with New England Patriots star tight end Rob Gronkowski (a.k.a. “Gronk“) and O’Brien play the upcoming video game release, Mortal Kombat X. Hilarity ensues.×120.jpg

10 Thoughts On…WWE Immortals (iOS) Fri, 30 Jan 2015 19:00:43 +0000 wweimmortals2WWE Immortals is the kind of game I’ve dreamed about since I was a kid. It takes the already over the top action of wrestling and puts it into an even more over the top fighting game. It’s basically a WWE themed version of Injustice for iOS. That’s not a bad thing at all. If you’ve played that game, you know what to expect. If you haven’t played that game, keep reading to find out how this all works.

1. The concept here is that Bray Wyatt has filled his lantern with dark mystical energy. The Authority takes the lantern and unleashes its power. This causes rifts to other dimensions to open up. In these words, the WWE superstars and divas are badass warriors, mages, and monsters. Naturally, they start fighting each other. In this game, Kane is an actual demon, the Bellas are elemental witches, and John Cena is really a super hero. It’s a fun concept that allows for a lot of creative license.

2. When it comes to combat, the game uses the same structure as Injustice. You tap for light attacks, swipe for heavy attacks, and touch with two fingers in order to block. Signature moves are charged as you fight, and you simply tap the one you want to use. This will bring up a mini game where you’ll need to either tap or swipe the screen quickly in order to boost your damage. You control a team of three characters that you can switch between on the fly. The first side to run out of people is the loser. It’s a simple system, but ends up being fun because it rewards the player for timing their attacks properly.

wweimmortals33. There are three tiers of superstars: bronze, silver, and gold. Bronze are the weakest of the bunch, and gold is the strongest. In order to acquire new characters, you need to spend coins earned in battle. You can also buy coins with real money if you get impatient. If you want a specific character, it will cost you a lot of coins. If you buy a random booster, the price is cheaper. There are also other cards you can earn. Some cards allow you to upgrade your characters for free, talent cards give passive bonus to specific characters, and gear cards can be equipped for some basic customization.

Seth Rollins News: Wants HHH Match, ROH, Future of WWE, Wrestlemania 31 Fri, 30 Jan 2015 18:00:10 +0000

Speaking to James Delow on talkSPORT’s new WWE podcast Gorilla Position, Seth Rollins has said he would like to face Triple H – and also that he wouldn’t swap his years in Ring of Honor for time in WWE developmental.

“I wouldn’t mind having a match with Triple H some day, a singles match,” said Rollins.

“I know that’s interesting considering our current affiliation, but there doesn’t always have to be an element of hate involved there – it could be a competitive match.

“He’s someone who is a measuring stick, he’s done a lot for me specifically and I’d just like to test the water at some point. I think it would be a really interesting match up.”

Seth continued: “For me, he’s been an incredible mentor. You really can’t ask for a better mentor than The Game himself.

“If you look at what he’s done in our industry over the last 20 years and his position in the company, It is incredible.

“He thinks about things so differently too. You may not think that about him – a lot of people may think he’s very vanilla or cut and dry – but man, he thinks about things so differently and he absolutely loves WWE. Just loves it, it is his passion.”

“He’s built for the role he’s in now. It’s an exciting time,” he adds.

“I’m proud to be part of what I believe to be his WWE, the future is he’s shaping.

“I’m really excited to see how that goes. It’s really his time to take this step and I’m glad to be taking it with him.”


On the Performance Center: “It is an amazing set up and certainly an accelerated system for guys who have never, ever learnt a thing about wrestling in their life.

“It will pay dividends going forward but to me there’s no replacement for having passion, heart and desire and just working your way from the bottom up.”

“There are so many guys to learn from, so many styles. Guys who are well-travelled made millions and millions of dollars, everything there is to know about professional wrestling.

“If you can’t learn from them in everything, how to cut promos, how to be a character, how to wrestle inide the rings, the ins and outs… And on top of that, you’re getting paid to train!

“I had to pay to train, working odd jobs… If you’re getting paid to live in sunny Florida and train under the greatest minds of our era and you can’t succeed, you’re just not built for this.

“Get out of here, do something else because you’re not cut out for this.”


“They’re a niche product that caters to a different kind of wrestling fan, a hardcore, underground type of fan.

“But they do such a great job bringing in the best talent on the independent level, because you have no choice but to get better.

“And if you don’t get better, you’re just going to get shoved back down.

“So, it is one of those things where if you want to get better and you want to learn, you want to grow as a professional, Ring of Honor is the place to be.

“I learned so much there in three years, I would never take that back.

“Even if you said, ‘Let’s go back in time, we can sign you to WWE today and you can skip this Ring of Honor nonsense,’ I wouldn’t have traded it for anything.”×120.jpg
