I have a new guilty pleasure. It’s called “Dirt” and it’s a new TV show on FX. It’s pretty shameful, has bad language, sex, drugs and other illicit stuff…it’s not a show for everyone, but it is Fox’s answer to Showtime’s Entourage. I haven’t seen Entourage, but the DVD series is cheaper than Dirt.
I like Dirt because it’s got Courtney Cox in it. This show is so completely addicting. It’s actually on iTunes and you can download the shows there, but I think I’ll just wait for the DVDs to come out next season. It’s about Lucy (Cox) who is the Editor in Chief at Dirt, a magazine that publishes celebrity gossip. Don Konkey is a schizophrenic photojournalist who still uses film camera. Sometimes he takes his medication, sometimes he doesn’t. Sometimes, we can’t tell what is real and what is not, in his world–it’s fascinating–sometimes I wonder if that’s how my mom sees the world, but she never talked to the voices in her head (at least I don’t think so!) We get a small glimpse into Lucy’s world and it’s full of hurt and pain.
I don’t recommend this show for everyone. It it definitely a rated R show. Personally, it would call it M+17. It’s a show that I probably wouldn’t have liked as a kid anyway. I was extremely sheltered.
This is how sheltered I was as a kid. I didn’t know that there were movies not produced by Disney until after I went to college. I was not allowed to watch such films. Saturday Night Live was out of the question and my parents had a strict 8pm bedtime. Additionally, my mother wanted me to turn off a TV movie about Rock Hudson when I was 15, but I disobeyed her and watched it anyway.
I was watching it while Rob was home a few weeks back, but he wasn’t interested in it. He thought it was just a little too weird for his tastes. That’s okay. This is one thing that I get all to myself!
Casey and Gizmo are going stir crazy and I think that Casey misses Rob a little bit. We only have about 9 days to go! I’m looking forward to seeing him.
Well, that’s all for now. Talk to you soon!! Thanks for reading!
