Week That Was (Sept 16 – Sept 22)

Obviously LOTS HAS HAPPENED this week, because, Emmys. So you’re mostly covered heading into the weekend. But there’s more where that came from. James Corden took the Jimmy Fallon route of how to approach anyone connected with the vile bigoted hateful dangerous Trump organisation and thought it was be *cute* to mack on with Sean Spicer at one of the Emmys after party. Twat. He really should’ve thought twice about it too, because look how well it went for Fallon. Also apparently Spicer’s appearance was Stephen Colbert’s idea. Even Colbert…

Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 18

OMG I am not coping with these three-episode weeks. And it hasn’t even been one full week yet. I blame it on the Emmys. Luckily, this week of Australian Survivor has already proven to be damn good and I am excited for tonight’s post-merge shenanigans – long may they continue! As long as it’s not to the detriment of my faves. So Anneliese just went home because Ziggy decided to use her Suuuuuuper Idol AGAINST her old Sum Tribe and is now effectively part of the new major Ass alliance. Tess and…

Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 16 & 17

Soooo this big week was a biggie – Survivor is officially moving to 3 nights a week (yay! but also eep!) AND the Emmys were on, thus, this is incredibly late. Unfortunately I do have a full-time job which takes up a lot of my time. I know, someone pays me to do actual real work and I can’t just watch TV all day. It’s honestly sad. Therefore I was going to do a weekly recap instead of episodic recaps but I have too many thoughts/emotions (story of my life) and the post would…

69th Emmy Awards

You may have seen my “Week That Was” post earlier this week where I anguished about the Emmys, lamenting how many times they have gotten their awards wrong before. And sure, there were some shockers (6 WINS FOR JULIA LOUIS DREYFUS IN VEEP, REALLY?), but I was astonished tonight to see so many categories won by the right people/series. ASS-TON-ISHED. Without further ado, read on for an Emmys wrap-up in three parts: As-Wrong-As-RPDR-Losing-To-The-Voice; As-Right-As-RuPaul-Winning-Oustanding-Host-Of-A-Reality-Series; and The Moments…

The Week That Was (Sept 8 – Sept 15)

Just a quickie this week because we are heading into EMMYS WEEKEND! Aka one of the greatest weekends of the year. The Emmys are great because they’re a lot looser than the Oscars, but they’re also notoriously disappointing with their winners. Honestly if Veep or The Crown win anything else this year I’ll lose my damn mind. Anyway. It’s going to be a big week here at aphroisms because Survivor is heading to 3 nights (OMG) AND there’ll be all the red carpet and awards show shenanigans to cover. I…

Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 15

Okay, so after that Tribal Council there is understandable fallout back at camp Is Jericho the most naive human on earth, saying that he “didn’t realise” people in his own alliance “were gunning for each other” when they were patently and verbally gunning for each other right in front of him? And of course there’s annoying Tara. She’s mad at Luke for “putting it all on [her]” but I don’t recall him putting anything on her?? Did I blank out last night? Why did she keep…

Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 14

Unfortunately last week really happened and AK is still gone. I know that was two eps ago, but oh well. And there’s already more unrest in the tribe as Sarah is still angling to work with Peter and Luke can see red flags. Sarah is always ready to switch it up when a new person hits their beach, so she’s not exactly a rock solid ally. Meanwhile, after Michelle pulled the most amazing rabbit out of her hat to get Ben ousted and stay on Sum Tribe, Locky is on edge too. She’s obviously…

The Week That Was (Sept 1 – Sept 7)

Sooooo I’ve kind of dropped the ball on these weekly recaps haven’t I? My bad. I understand that you may have no idea what’s happened in the world of pop culture over the last few weeks (if ONLY you could find this info out elsewhere…like being bombarded with it from all angles at all times and from all devices…) so I’m here to make it right. Today I present to you a mammoth wrap-up of pretty much anything I missed recently with some very colourful language thrown in…

I lied. For 6 months.

And it’s genuinely eating me up inside. Have you ever told one of those little white lies that’s gone on just a liiiiiittle bit too long? And then it goes past that point (you know what I’m talking about) and becomes so interwoven into your real life, spread to so many people, that you can’t extricate yourself out of it? You and the lie become indelibly linked and you start to care about the people to whom you’ve told it, but then telling them the truth would make what&#8217…

Australian Survivor Recap: Episode 13

Okay, last night’s vote got even more depressing the more I thought about how sad it was that AK was gone. He really pulled himself back from disaster back in the early episodes to move into a great position and now…unfortunately his mortal enemy Tara is still there. AND she’s working with my Lukey. Dammit. I’m CONFLICTEEEEED. But before we get to what happens next – let us take a moment and acknowledge the significant meaning of today. It’s September 4th. It’s the day our lord Beysus blessed…
