Jewpacabra

Jewpacabra

Hello TrashTalk TV!!! I cannot believe I am finally recapping for this site after years of enjoying its snarky and sarcastic recaps. I should fit right in cause I am a judgmental bitch. Just a little about myself, I am recapping under the name Jewpacabra because why not. If you take offense, why are you on this site? I am Jewish, so I can get away with it. Anyways, I’m a reality TV addict. Favorites include Top Chef, Cutthroat Kitchen, Masterchef, Kitchen Nightmares, Face off, Under the Gunn, Project Runway, Survivor, Amazing Race, Opposite Worlds etc. Also, I am a licensed Pharmacist so I may or may not be really science nerdy (Battlestar Galactica for life! SO SAY WE ALL). Apparently, someone more important than me thinks I should be trusted with drugs. PS the reason all of your pharmacists look miserable is because you are annoying and we are waiting to make fun of you when you leave. Sorry not sorry

    Watching the new episode. Every time they say the name of the blue team, in my head I hear “Hula hoop.” And then that infernal Christmas chipmunk song goes through my head…

    Heh, I was just teasin’.

    Actually, Valerie Bertinelli was my generation’s Winnie Cooper/Danica McKellar.

  • jimbobjones

    I know you KNOW her… I was just wondering if she was like the Winnie Cooper of your generation. Sounds about right.

  • Jewpacabra

    I known topanga! I’m not that young lol

  • jimbobjones

    I read the first sentence WAY wrong…

    “He began lap dancing…”

    Early 20s, you’re forgiven.

    I’m trying to think about a parallel from late 90s, early 00s that you could relate with for the perfect “girl next door” (that gave geeks hope, since Kevin Arnold was NOT cool). Maybe Topanga from Boy Meets World, but even that may be a bit too past your time.

    And you’re right, itchy — had I known she was a real-life geek, the stalking would have been never-ending, but I didn’t find that out until a few years ago.

    Yeaaaah jewps had a bad night of terrible spelling and grammar. Hopefully I’ll do better next time . And I’m in my early 20s so the era of Winnie cooper is not one I’m particularly familiar with

  • Jewpacabra

    Oh fuck lol. I had no idea. Probably because of all the lame ass kissing and dumb comments he makes

  • itchy

    We live in an age where spelling is optional.

    But yeah, Winnie Friggin’ Cooper. Exactly. And now that I just found out she’s a brainiac? It’s a good thing I didn’t know that back then.

    Geek fight! Geek Fight!

    Quick! Someone make some popcorn!

    As someone who spent the last few nights assembling, trimming, and “green stuff”ing (it sounds dirty, but it’s not — or is it?) figures for Shadows of Brimstone (a cooperative board game about cowboys who somehow end up in Cthulhu mythos) in preparation to paint them, I definitely enjoy this show.

    How old are you Jewpacabra? If you’re my age range, and only refer to Winnie Friggin’ Cooper as “an actress and writer of math books”, you’re a little bit dead to me.

    As for the show, awesome stuff, and as someone who has had a huge number of drunken nerdathons, them going for the alcohol is definitely the first thing I would have done. I’ve been to tons of parties, with “cool people” and my nerdly friends, and I’ve got to say that parties with nerds are a LOT better, because you have a bunch of people who are just having fun (regardless of how dumb they look), as opposed to trying to look cool.

    As for Kaitlin, I don’t know if there IS a real spelling for that name — I’ve seen it spelled like a dozen ways, and everyone thinks the way they spell it is the official one. Either way, her head is way too big for her body — I think Slender found a wig and an application for the show.

    Re: Nigel Lythgoe…Here is the first section from his bio:

    “He began tap dancing, and went on to study at the Hylton-Bromley School of Dance and Drama and the Perry Cowell School of Dance, both in Wallasey, Merseyside where he studied classical ballet, modern jazz, ballroom, character, classical Greek and National dance from various countries. Lythgoe’s first professional job was in the Corps de Ballet for the National tour of “The Merry Widow.” He trained in London under Joanne Steuer and Molly Molloy.[1] Beginning in 1969, Lythgoe performed with the BBC’s “Young Generation” dance troupe. He became their choreographer in 1971 and has since choreographed over 500 television shows.

    During the 1970s and into the 1980s, Lythgoe had the opportunity to perform with dancers from Cyd Charisse to Gene Kelly. He also choreographed for Ben Vereen, Shirley Bassey and (most famously) the Muppets.[1] Lythgoe, in an interview with People said that he was “the only person to dance, choreograph, produce and direct the Royal Variety Performance”

    I’m gonna go out on a limb here, and say he is more than qualified to judge SYTYCD.

    When Ori smiles, he looks like The Gentlemen from Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

  • Jewpacabra

    HAHAHAHAH well I’m pretty sure next week is cosplay week so that’s close enough right?

  • Jewpacabra

    Gah! I totally typed this in a half asleep haze last night and now I see all the terrible proof reading errors. Sorry folks. I will do better next time. I am the worst sometimes

    Fortunately, there’s another Kaitlyn on reality television right now who can easily kick Bitchface Kaitlin in any bikini contest. She’s going to become really annoying really fast. Betcha she decides to sabotage her own team.

    Can’t wait until the makeover episode!
