VH1 – you suck too.

Posted by BenSpark on March 11, 2008

For years people have asked MTV where the music videos went. So people moved over to VH1 to watch videos. Now the videos are missing from VH1. VH1 stands for Video Hits 1. I have not seen a video on that station for years. It started with a couple of shows. Then the whole reality show thing happened. VH1 is now the home of celeb-reality. That is what they call it. They had it started with the Surreal Life and for the 1st seasons it was okay. Now they seem to have been using that show as a casting call for their latest show Celebrity Rehab.

Celebrity Rehab is about a bunch of washed up celebs who are in drug rehabilitation. It is really pathetic. I can’t stand watching that whole station even though I still like the Best Week Ever and if I remember to watch it on my ipod, I also like the Best night ever. Make that a show and stop these other crappy ones.

Short Film: Bomb

Posted by BenSpark on April 30, 2007

Have you heard about On The Lot? On The Lot is a new reality show that is coming to Fox. And Fox and I are in a fight over the cancellation of Drive. Not at all happy about that. Anyway On The Lot is the search for th next big filmmaker and I want you to take a look at Bomb by Paul Schuyler. The video was okay. We weren’t overly thrilled, but some of the scenes were interesting.I liked the one where the main guy opens his eye and you see the pupil dilate. It was pretty cool.

I know about this show and this video in particular because of my Uncle Murph. He is on the fire department on the cape and part of the short film was done with the Chatham Fire and Police Department and part was filmed at the Chatham Elementary School. So please take a look at the short film, I think he has some potential if given time to hone his craft. Watch: Bomb

Some more about On The Lot. I do not generally like reality shows, however I was a fan of Last Comic Standing because I really enjoy comedy. Well I really enjoy movies and this is being produced by Steven Spielberg. So I may look into this show.

From Mark Burnett, Steven Spielberg and DreamWorks Television, ON THE LOT affords aspiring filmmakers the opportunity of a lifetime: a $1-million DreamWorks development deal. And, 12,000 people submitted their films for consideration. ON THE LOT will feature filmmakers who will produce short films in every genre every week and the viewers will vote on who gets eliminated. The show will premiere with a one-hour auditions episode on Tuesday, May 22.

They have also announced the judges for the audition shows.

Actress, author and screenwriter Carrie Fisher (“Star Wars,” “Postcards From The Edge”), as well as directors/producers Brett Ratner (“Rush Hour 3,” “X-Men 3: The Last Stand”), Garry Marshall (“Georgia Rule,” “Princess Diaries,” “Pretty Woman”) and Job Avnet (“The Starter Wife,” “Fried Green Tomatoes,” “Risky Business”), will serve as judges for the series’ two “audition” episodes airing Tuesday, May 22 9/8c and Thursday, May 24 9/8c on FOX. Judges for additional rounds will be announced at a later date.

So the lineup looks to be interesting. If I can get over Fox screwing over the shows I like then maybe I might watch this show when it comes out.

Look What the Cat Dragged in….

Posted by BenSpark on February 14, 2007

I read on Pop Candy that both Vince Neil and Brett Michaels have reality shows coming out. The reason I mention this is that I am a product of the 80’s and I loved Motley Crue and Poison. I still enjoy many of their songs.

The Vince Neil show is going to follow around Vince and his family. This will be on A&E. The Brett Michaels one will be called Rock of Love and will be on VH1. It will be a similar vein of the Flava Flav, Flavor of Love.

I won’t be watching either one of these because I’m not exactly excited about these guys doing these shows. But who am I to talk, I record my life and put it on the Internet, at least they are getting paid for it.
