The second season of CHUCK airs tonight (yes, it competes with my beloved guilty pleasure, Gossip Girl)! But thankfully, iTunes had offered a free pre-air episode of it last week, so I actually have already seen the CHUCK season premire. And, I was pleasantly surprised to see/hear one of my favorite songs by the FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS, "Foux Du Fafa", used in the episode!

Friday Movie Review

Some pals and I caught TROPIC THUNDER after work tonight, and (despite the controversy over the depiction of physically challenged people) I must admit that it was quite funny. I'm happy that we saw it on the big screen too 'cause the cinematography was surprisingly amazing (it was filmed on Kauai).

Another pleasant surprise was that it was co-written and produced by (the gorgeous) Justin Theroux. Unfortunately, Justin wasn't on screen for more than a few seconds; I could have sworn that I saw him as one of the random soldiers in a helicopter.

Art Shows

1) The lovely Yumiko Kayukawa has a new show starting on Sept. 20th at the Richard Goodall Gallery in Manchester, ENGLAND! Ooh, I wish I could be there to see it (and catch an EPL game too; a Lady Hooligan can dream).

2) Lady Lorelei attended the opening of the Taryn Simon photography exhibit at the Gagosian Gallery in Beverly Hills, and she definitely recommends checking it out.

I can't take much more of...

Tyra and crew's lameness on ANTM! Due to Tyra's antics and "skits", the show is getting worse and worse. But, of course, I did enjoy tonight's make-over portion and photo session.

The LH gang and I will be betting on our picks for the winner before next week's episode. But overall, it looks like this might be the last cycle we'll be gambling on and possibly tuning into; there's only so much we can take of Tyra.

I think (foxy judge) Nigel needs a show of his own 'cause I'd definitely tune into that (unless his wife was featured on it).

What's this? What's this?

The official 2009 ATP calendar features top tennis pros showing a little skin!?! Hey now!

Unfortunately, Marat Safin and Robby Ginepri are missing from its pages, but I might buy a copy anyway.

Oh Happy Day!

John Terry's red card from over the weekend was overturned AND Chelsea won their first Champions League game 4-0 against Bordeaux today! I am one happy Lady Hooligan!

The Champions!

There's no way to get over the heartbreak of last year's Champions League nightmare, but today we start anew, as Chelsea takes on Bordeaux (on ESPN2 at 11:30am PST) in a fresh Champions League campaign.


New Music (&DVD) Tuesday

Last week, I neglected to mention the new release by Lady Hooligan favorite, The Broken West, called Now or Heaven.

Saturday Movie Review

Bill and I saw the French thriller, TELL NO ONE (Ne Le Dis A Personne), today, and we both thought it was quite good. The movie had me when it opened with Otis Redding's "For Your Precious Love" playing, and I also very much enjoyed the seedy French hooligan characters in the flick.

New Music (&DVD) Tuesday

First of all, I'm loving the (fairly) new single "Sex on Fire" by the Kings of Leon, off of their forthcoming cd. I just can't get enough of the cry in the lead singer's voice.
