Live Feeds, in HD?

Yes, you heard me right. According to Real Player, the live feeds will be upgraded to HD this year! Aside from our previous mention of the many other upgrades happening to the feeds this year, including the ability to back them up and see what you missed, we will also be getting nifty HD streaming! Now, I don’t know about you, but this could be a great thing, or… depending on the houseguest, maybe we all don’t need to see all that clearly? I mean, can you imagine having to look at some of our previous houseguests in HD? Hmmmm…

In addition, Real will be offering some REAL nice Early Bird discounts to be announced next week. From what I have read, we are talking about as much as 25% off in an early bird discount. We will have all the deals posted as soon as they are announced, so be ready to order them here!

Is Casting Really Done for Big Brother 11????

Thanks to OnlineBigBrother for this interesting tidbit!

Recent posts on CraigsList makes one wonder whether or not casting is really over OR if they could just maybe be bringing in more people, just later on Big Brother 11. Per the links, casting calls for a “prime time hit reality show” are asking for people with unusual jobs; i.e. clowns, fire eaters, contortionists, and any other unusal job or talent. Now what makes one think it’s for Big Brother 11? One thing is because it’s being done through the same casting agency, Robyn Kass’s, that casts for Big Brother 11.

Dominic Monaghan appears in ABC Promo; Hopes Raised and Dashed for Charlie Fans…

As one of THE biggest Charlie from LOST fans, and a HUGE fan of Dominic Monaghan, I got VERY excited when I saw a certain ABC promo with him in it. (Those promos of late are FANTASTIC!). Made me hope against hope that somehow, some way, my Charlie was going to be brought back to the island (and with recent news that Emilie De Ravin WILL be a series regular again during the final season of LOST, what a treat that would’ve been!).

And The Best Movie Of All Time According To Yakkity Yaks Is……

It started just under a month ago here at Yakkity Yaks. One hundred movies were paired up against each other, tourney style, to see which one our devoted Yakksters would decide to be the best movie of all time. It was a hard fought battle, with a lot of blood, sweat and tears shed along the way. Comedy? Drama? Action? Sci Fi? Horror? Classic? Which one would it be?

Eventually it was narrowed down to our final two, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest vs. The Godfather Part II and then the Yakksters were given a week to vote on which one they thought was the best. And now we have a winner!! The best movie of all time, according to Yakkity Yaks is………….may I have the envelope please?

Terminator: Salvation – A Must See For Any Terminator Fan

[singlepic id=83 w=240 h=320 float=center]

So, today was the day I was finally able to see the new summer blockbuster, “Terminator: Salvation”. I.LOVED.IT. I’ve been a fan of all the other Terminator movies, seeing the first one as a child. This story picks up awhile after the last one left off, but it opened in an unusual way. At first, during opening credits, I was getting upset b/c any fan is used to, and WANTS to hear the classic anthem that we first heard in the first Terminator movie. But if you listen close, you realize that it is, only “futurized” and thank god, ends with the boom boom boom boom boom metallic beat.

Speculation! We LOVE BB Speculation!

Bring on all speculation we can get!  It’s one of the great things about Big Brother…  Letting our minds go wild about what may be to come.  Sometimes, we are totally right on, many other times, we fail miserably.  I found a speculation online this evening that sounds quite plausible…  Thank you to Online Big Brother, they have calculated the Thursdays due to run this season, and has come up with a quite plausible 13 houseguests (if there is one double eviction like usual.) Now, that it would make the whole male/female ratio off by one.

Jon and Kate Plus 8 – Time to Call It Quits?

[singlepic id=77 w=320 h=240 float=left]On May 14, 2006, we were introduced to the Gosselin Family. We watched the hour long special which revolved around the daily routine of raising twins and sextuplets. The show was all about the children. Nearly one year later, the first episode of the reality show series aired. It was still all about the children, but through short clips of interviews with Jon and Kate, we slowly became aware of the parents’ personalities. Kate clearly wore the pants in the family while Jon appeared to be more passive in an attempt to keep things running smoothly in their home.
Three years later, the show has done a complete 180. Instead of it being all about the kids, it’s all about Jon and Kate. The kids are merely there for “filler” between solo interviews with either Jon or Kate, who discuss their failing marriage. Between the end of season 4, which aired at the end of March, and the beginning of season 5, which aired at the end of May, the media had a field day with the rumor that Jon was cheating on Kate with a 23 year old teacher. Shortly after this rumor started, there was a counter-rumor that Kate was having an affair with her bodyguard. Who really knows if either rumor is true, but clearly their marriage is in trouble. As a matter of fact, on May 27, 2009, Showbiz Tonight broke the news that allegedly TLC is helping Jon find an apartment that is “camera-ready” so they are able to film him in his new home.
The question seems to be this: Is it time for the show to call it quits? Have these children been scarred enough from having cameras in their little faces 2-3 times a week?
