I’ve always loved the little misleading ditty “Afternoon Delight” by The Starland Vocal Band and it’s only made better by pop cultural takeovers. The film ANCHORMAN has a great rendition and I fucking love it, but it doesn’t hold a candle to what TV has done.
Originally I only had one “Delight” TV fave, but after last night’s episode of GLEE, I now have two!
#1 “Afternoon Delight” TV Moment
It’s ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT:
Genius. Hands down my favorite and most inappropriate version of the song performed by underage Maeby Funke and her Uncle Michael Bluth. It’s so ridiculous, I can’t even deal. I remember watching it for the first time when it aired in 2004 and almost pissed myself. So wrong. So so wrong.
#2 “Afternoon Delight” TV Moment GLEE:
I LOVE IT! Last night’s episode gave us a killer rendition. Watching Emma and her Celibacy Club sing that song was pure clueless-down-on-the-prairie awesomesauce. Those sister wives outfits? Genius.

We’ve been promising it for months, and finally, we sat down to talk about the book series that turned us into instant fanboys and fangirls.
Welcome to TWO IDIOTS TALK THE HUNGER GAMES TRILOGY!
The way we approached this was the same way we approach all of our podcasts, on the fly and with little to no preparation. Both of us finished the series a couple months ago so what you’re about to hear are two friends sitting down to rehash the series, who got us into the books, how and why we became so obsessed and why we’ve recommended these to everyone we know.
There is no outline, no script, no plot points, no nothing, so you can imagine the shit show you’re about to listen to. Half the time we can’t remember which plot points happened in which book, character names are almost always forgotten and the tangents are out of control. Do you expect anything less from us idiots? No one ever said we were readers…
Sit back, grab your bow and arrow, and enjoy the reaping.
You know how I tend to have a little bit of an obsessive personality? Cleaning, bitching, maintaining order in lines, TV… Well this week there was something that has just completely taken over my existence so I thought I’d share it with you.
I realize I’m a year or two behind on this one (hey, I never said I was on top of things), but this week I discovered the genius that is the Brenda Dickson video dub. While I’m not a fan of most viral videos (or people trying to be cute, clever, or funny on youtube), a couple of these BDick vids have completely won me over. I’m talking laugh out loud, red in the face, tears streaming down my windblown apple cheeks hilarious.
How can I not love something that has brought the following soundbites into my everyday life? Go ahead, use them in conversation today, I encourage it.
“Look at how big my vajeene looks! It’s a huge vajeene, I’ve even had to underline it.”
“My shirt just threw up on my head!”
“You know what I like about your lips? Nothing… but their sheer stupidity!”
“She just spent a night with a pirate… nice beard!”
“I can’t see your big ass because of your small waist!”
”This means whore! Could you be more rapey?”
Behold my two favorite videos of the week. Enjoy this 80’s jazzercising, foul-mouthed, big haired, pirate loving viral vixen.
The accent, the cadence of speech, the evil bitchiness… it’s all too ridiculous and perfect. I don’t know who voices her in these dubs but I’d like to wear their beard.
I will admit that I’ve only watched these two videos (about 45 times each) and I’m afraid to watch any of the others because frankly, these two are divine. I don’t want to taint (teehee) the BDick.
PS – don’t google image her (let the 80’s perm and pirate regalia live in your memory forever).
Kath and I have always known that we have crazy awesome TV Talk Podcast listeners but now, these crazy fuckers have taken to brand new heights of awesomeness.
It all started with a little animation about a certain Thanksgiving rant. I love love love Peanuts, especially their holiday episodes. However, I fucking hate Peppermint Patty and how twunty she gets during the Thanksgiving episode. It was a big hit in the comments, on Twitter and Facebook. Who knew? Well, I didn’t realize how much of an impact it made until this gem surfaced.
I have to say that I look quite dashing as an Einstein type. Bwahahahaha.
Next came a song… yes, a song! During one of our podcasts, we talked about a particularly disgusting episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta where they talked about sticking sugar in your nana. The always genius NeNe made some brilliant remarks and on the podcast, Kath coined the term Sugar Snatch! We laughed for hours… then a song landed in my inbox. I nearly blew my wad.
Sweet Baby Grilled Cheesus, I thought I’d post one last (or was it my first?) blog entry for 2010. When you’ve picked yourselves up off the floor from shock, I’ll move on… I’m going to try and blog more in 2011. That’s one of my resolutions. That basically means I have to start the blog from ground up because I’ve neglected the bitch so long that I no longer have any readers. Waaaaaaaaaah *snookie*
Regardless, I’ll do my best in the new year to blog more about TV and other pop culture bullshit.
So as a swan song to 2010 and to ring in the new year…

SOOKIE! yet another great Ducky/True Blood photoshop from my friend Julie
Hey gang, I’ve been incredibly excited to see Showtime’s new dramedy, THE BIG C, ever since the casting was announced. I heart Laura Linney more than you can imagine and I’m crazy about having her on my television on a weekly basis.
Laura Linney play Cathy Jamison, a reserved, stifled, Minneapolis schoolteacher who receives life changing news and decides, from that moment on, to make drastic, long-overdue adjustments to the way she is living her life. Oliver Platt plays her husband, while John Benjamin Hickey (love him) co-stars and PRECIOUS herself, Gabourey Sidibe guest stars in a handful of episodes.
THE BIG C premieres on Monday, August 16th at 10:30pm, following the premiere of an all-new season of WEEDS (has no one killed that Nancy Botwin yet?).
Watch the series premiere of THE BIG C for free, online, right here at Ducky Does TV!

Hey gang, if there’s anyone out there still subscribing to my feed or god for bid still stopping by from time to time to see if I’m alive, I thought I’d post a couple updates!

I know two things in life… (1) I will never not love a hot man on television and (2) Matthew Bomer is the studliest of stud muffins. Don’t believe me? Just ask People Magazine – they don’t lie.
USA Networks’ WHITE COLLAR is one of my favorite shows on television right now and I swear it has nothing to do with Matthew Bomer’s piercing blue eyes. It’s not like they’re hypnotizing me so that I can’t change the channel… or ever look at another man… or force me unfollow one of my SYTYCD TV Boyfriends on Twitter…. that’s just crazy!
Anywhoozle! Who wants to win some a White Collar Prize Pack valued at $250? Ladies (and gays), it would make quite the Valentine’s Day present for the man in your life. I’m just sayin’…
How To Enter:
WHITE COLLAR is having a beyond stellar winter season and I’d love to hear why you love the show so much. Is it Bomer’s smile? Peter and Neal’s damn near butter chemistry? Is it Tiffani Theissen’s refusal to let her character be anything less than charming? Is it Stanford Blatch Willie Garson’s snarky snarkerton? Something draws millions of people to the show, tell me your story!

I’m basically Liz’ing myself waiting for LOST Season 6 to begin! We’re less than two weeks away from the beginning of the end and I can’t stand the anticipation any longer. Plus, that means we’re only weeks away from the return of TV Talk Podcast listener favorite… TWO IDIOTS TALK LOST!
My friend Nancy is heading to the beaches of Hawaii in a few days to watch the premiere beachside, take the LOST island tour and just chill like one of the 815. Aside from being crazy jealous and wanting to slap her, I’m so excited that someone in my life will get to experience that crazy greatness!
With no beachside premiere in my future and only time to kill before we find out if Juliet’s really dead, if Locke and Titus Welliver are one in the same and if Richard Alpert will still look mascara clad and smokin’ hot, I suggest we spend some time with the following videos. They’re pretty frakkin’ great.
LOST in 8:15 (Seasons 1-5)
LOST the crash of 815 in real-time
LOST Destiny Found
LOST Spanish TV Promo
and finally, the most disturbing of them all…
