1. I've just formed an addiction to Texts from Last Night.  I'm not proud of this fact and clearly need to spend less time on the internet.  *pays this no heed*

2.Well, that sucks.  Arizona becomes a regular and George becomes dead. In particular, this paragraph makes me curiously angry:

Last month, Rhimes told me that George's relatively light storyline this year was the result of the normal "ebbs and flows" of ensemble television. But she did acknowledge that he was intentionally written lighter during the last half of the season so that viewers wouldn't think it odd that he was absent from the season finale -- something that was necessary to preserve the episode's biggest twist: that George was actually a disfigured John Doe who had been hit by a bus. "I really wanted you to not notice that he wasn't there for most of this episode," she said. "I don't think anybody noticed because of the way we laid it out this season."

WELL GOSH, Shonda, I'm really proud of you for pulling that one off!  No wait, "proud of" isn't the right phrase...

Furthermore, I don't even know what to say to the fact that she thinks Arizona/Callie chemistry feels just like Derek and Meredith's.  I really don't.


3. It's past mid-June already.  I feel like I should get cracking on that Office finale post before I have season 6 spoilers to deal with too.  It's 1/3 done, but I keep getting distracted by the fact that I'm listening to the Doctor Who soundtrack while I write, and that makes me want to go work on the also-1/3-done Journey's End post.  Or just curl up in a corner and weep over the memories.  Six of one, really.

4. Damn.  I get exposed to ten seconds of Lady GaGa's "Poker Face" on SYTYCD last week, and the tune's been stuck in my head ever since, to the point where after specifically avoiding anything by this, er, artist for months, I had to go view it on YouTube.  I mean, first I checked the lyrics to make sure I wasn't going to get sucked into swearing or some Katy-Perry-style crap, but when I couldn't find anything too overtly objectionable, I went to YouTube.  

There's a lot I don't love, such as all the verses and anything else that's more spoken/chanted than sung, but geeze that melodic chorus is irresistable (it has a lot in common with Avril Lavigne's "The Best Damn Thing" that way, failing to live up to its potential).  Oh crap, is this the onedollsome 's been all over for Dollhouse?  It is!  Well, now I'm powerless to resist it.  "There.  That sounds like a good, rational reason I can give myself" for why I'm on repeat #7.

Okay, what is up with Texts from Last Night? I hadn't heard about it before today, but you're the third person to mention it. o_O It's weird.

Lady Gaga is addictive like that. But hey, at least she's got talent, since she apparently wrote the music and lyrics to her album, had the know how to produce and craft it herself, and can actually sing.

that George was actually a disfigured John Doe who had been hit by a bus. "I really wanted you to not notice that he wasn't there for most of this episode," she said. "I don't think anybody noticed because of the way we laid it out this season." WTF. That might actually the crackiest thing I've read all day.

-That is weird. Maybe they're all reading Fugly Horse of the Day...she linked to the site in today's post and it was all downhill from there for me.

-...she can sing? Really? That's surprising; I sort of assumed all the techno and electronica sound was to cover up a lack of singing ability.

Yeah, she can sing, really well actually. I guess she'd have to be able to if she was accept to Juilliard as a kid and gained early admission to the Tisch School of the Arts, according to her Wiki. She performs acoustically a LOT... probably to prove that she can sing, lol. Here's an example.

I have attempted to quit this show no fewer than three times. But there's some kind of curse/spell on it whereby I always get dragged back for one reason or another. That being said, I CONCUR.

PUH-PUH-PUH-POKER FACE PUH-PUH-POKER FACE

... I am so in love with this song it's disgusting. I think it is a work of exquisite musical genius. And yes, I did just have to go bust it out on my itunes again. Lady Gaga + inevitable thoughts of beautiful DeWitt/Dominic = EVERLASTING JOY!

Also, ha ha ha, my actual interpretation of this song and the relationship of the verses to the chorus (... I lead a very lonely, boring life): I totally love how the verses are sort of mechanical and skanky and emotionless, because, er, in my inextricably-tangled-with-the-psyche-of-Adelle-DeWitt interpretation, the verses are the wicked femme fatale devil-may-care exterior, and then the chorus, which expresses such an unanticipated haunting sense of actual torment and angst (er ... that's how it sounds in my head, anyway), is her TRUE FEELINGS. She's got to love nobody, damn it!!!

... Thank you, combined powers of Lady Gaga, Olivia "Goddess" Williams, and Joss Whedon, and goodnight.

AUGH, you've done it again, now I am mentally interpreting it in exactly the same way! You have strange and wicked powers over people! (however, please never stop using them, because it's awesome. In this case it just breathes new life into the whole song.)

I love that site! I was exposed a few weeks ago and now I random go for lolz.

Greys just needs to die. How about just Cristina/Owen/Baliey go off together and do something.

YES. That is a good plan!
