There have been a few commercials to come out lately that have be very effective (to me at least) commercials.  The first was when the Razr phone first came out by Cingular, now owned by crappy AT&T and the song used was AC/DC’s Back in Black.  The second one for me was, again Cingular’s mother day commercial and song used was The Beta Band’s Square (That video is posted by me here).  The new one is for the Lincoln MKS.  The song is Major Tom being covered by Cat Power.  Enjoy.

There is a company that want to design boots and have Pam’s name on them.  I don’t know the name of the company that’s doing it for they either didn’t say the name of the company or I didn’t hear it.  Anyhoo.  The boots are like Ugh boots, but better, because they are not made from animal skin or fur.  Pam learned, just as I did, and you will too in a bit, that Ugh boots are made from lamb fur, but they kill the lamb.  She thought they shaved the lambs.  This upset her for she’s a die hard PETA supporter.

 

She is on her way to Abu Dhabi to auction off a dinner with her and a lucky person.  Her manager is having a meeting with the charity people.  Pam’s manager thinks there is some type of routine to be followed and one of the charity organizers says its just a do as you please type thing.  There’s no rules or anything.

 

Pam is going to auction herself off for the charity.  Montell Jordan (he sang, This is How We Do It) was the singer at the event.   Montell is going to assist in the auction by taking the bids.  Bidding started at 50K, then 75k, 100k, 150k, 190k, 230k, —- sold for $230,000. 

 

Pam’s house is still being built and Pam’s wants to be in the house when she gets back from Abu Dabi, and they (the contractors) don’t think that’s going to happen. 

 

Karen, Pam’s assistant, is looking for Khol eyeliner which Pam likes to wear while Pam is visits Ziad who is associated with a company called Hydra, a real estate company.  Pam is mostly interested in the green community that Hydra will building.

 

Karen didn’t have any luck finding the Khol eyeliner.  Everyone she asked pointed to her somewhere else and so forth.  She finally gave up and realized that what they had in that mall was the same thing she could find in a mall in America.  

 

Pam is going on a helicopter ride to look at the green community development in person.  Pam does not like helicopters but when she found out the pilot used to be a coast guard pilot she was comfortable going.

 

Meanwhile, back in Malibu, where Pam’s house is being built, they are very behind on schedule.  They brought an artitech out to help with the scheduling and such.  I don’t think even him can fix this problem.

 

I think some fool named Elias won the dinner with Pam because they showed her having lunch (they later had dinner) with him and she was asking him something about what they do to the camel’s hump (I couldn’t understand what Elias was saying and again they should have had subtitles).

 

Back at Adu Dhabi, Pam is attending a birthday party for someone.  I can’t understand the guy talking.  They should have had subtitles for those people over there in Abu Dabi talking to the cameras.  Oh ok.  Now I got it.  It was her son, Brandon, birthday party.  Geez.

  

After the birthday dinner Pam and Brandon decides to jump in a water fountain because its so hot.

 

The show ends with a quote from Kerouac.

 

“Why should I compromise with anything else, or the ‘bourgeois’ calm of the backyard lawn.”  Kerouac

 

March 12, 1922 – October 21, 1969

Vatican Boy won Big Brother 10 and I don’t know how.

Michael’s father, River (don’t ask), showed up (well, he really showed up on Friday and that’s how the show ended) and wanted to talk to Michael but Michael didn’t want to hear it.  His assistant (Michael’s) called to say she wasn’t coming into work tomorrow because she has the flu.  Michael, wanting to get away from his “father” pretended it was a client on the phone that he needed to go to.  Where he went to was Crimson Lights to get some crappy tea his big headed brother, Kevin, came up with.  Michael told Kevin that River showed up and is at his apartment.  Kevin thought this was a bad idea seeing that River is a fugitive from the law for something he did 40 years ago.  I can’t remember what it was he did.

Sidenote:  River is being played by Mr. Keaton himself, Michael Gross, from Family Ties

Chloe brought home some fool to Katherine’s house (where Chloe is staying) on Friday.  Cane showed up and was upset at Chloe so Jill thought it was time to put an end to Chloe’s charade and called Self-Righteous Lily over to have a Come to Jesus talk with Chloe.  Today, Katherine wanted to know where things stood with Chloe, Lame (Cane) and Self-Righteous.  Today, Chloe said that she cared about her unborn Rosemary’s Baby and her relationship, or there lack of, with Lame.  Self-Righteous told Chloe that she will be the worst mother in the world (paraphrasing of course) and that hurt Chloe’s feelings and that’s when she spued how much of a good mother she will be to the child.  This convinced everyone in the room that Chloe was telling the truth.  The other big question was could Lame and Self-righeous stay away from each other while Lame is married to Chloe.  As it turned out, Self-Righteous told Lame that she does need to stay away from Lame and Chloe as she promised she would when she recommended that Lame marry the baby’s mama.  Lame had crocidille tears in his eyes and did all he could get the future Daytime Award tears to fall, but to no avail.  Ahhhh, no Daytime Emmy Award for Lame.  On here way out, Self-Righteous told Chloe that she was sorry for all the self-righteous bad things she’s every said about Chloe.  Self-Righteous went to the coffee house to call Colleen to let her know that she will be going to NY with her next week after all.

Friday’s show ended with Skanky and Dofus (Amber and Daniel) about to kiss.  Today showed them in the same position (man, their bodies must be stiff for having to be in that position all weekend) and just before they were about to lip-lock, Skanky’s phone rang and it was Liam…yes the infamous Liam that we have yet to see.  She tried to get Liam off the phone and when she finally did, Dofus took the phone from her and looked at the number and said it was a Metro PCS number (he called it something else on the show) and thought Skanky was faking the phone call again.  He asked her who it really was on the phone and she said it WAS Liam, but Dofus didn’t believe her.  Skanky thought her and Dofus was going to get back together, but Dofus can’t trust Skanky and left her standing with egg on her face.

There wasn’t much going on with Nick save that he told Sharon that she’s changed.  He remembered when she cared about people and blah blah blah.  No-huh (Noah) let the cat out the bag and told Nick that it was Sharon who is responsible for Nick getting the money to buy Jack out of Restless Style.  No-huh said that she went to Grandpa (The Mustache) to ask him to hire Nick back at Newman Enterprise (Rent a car) but instead he gave Nick money to buy out Jack.  Nick went to Sharon’s house to apologize for what he said to her back at the magazine.  She accepted his apology and they all (No-huh, Sharon and Nick) held hands and sang Kum Ba Yah while swaying back and forth.  Ok, not really, but they might as well have.

Gloria went home to find River there.  He was listening to some song he claimed was from 1967.  I am guessing the producers of the show could not get the rights to use the real thing so they faked it with a song that sounded like a Strawberry Alarm Clock song.  It could have been a real song, but I sure has heck didn’t recognize it.  Anyhoo.  River tried to persuade Gold-Digger to speak to Michael about why River left him 40 years ago and such, but Gold-Digger wasn’t having it.  So, since he couldn’t work his magic out right, he decided to go down memory lane and talk about the summer of love in San Francisco at Gold Gate Park.  At first, Gold-Digger didn’t want to take that walk, but soon she was skipping down the yellow brick road with the Scarecrow.

I almost forgot about Jena (with her Paint my Pony hair color on one part of her hair) and Colleen at the coffee house.  Jena was out on the patio listening to a radio talk-show on her computer when Skanky called into the talk show to speak about her love for Dofus.  Colleen over heard it and for some reason showed up at Dofus’ apartments and as soon as she walked in she stripped letting him know she was ready to do the wild thing—AGAIN. 

Unfortunately I do not remember the previews for tomorrow’s show.  Oops.

 

Ok, I said I would begin recapping (and capping on) Y & R and Bold and the Beautiful on 8 September, but as you notice, it didn’t work out.  I tried doing B and B and realized how boring that show is that it is only worth during an end of the week recap.  As for Y & R, I think I am a bit fearful that I won’t do it right, but I won’t know unless I try, right?  Right.  So, I will be giving it a shot today after work.
