OMG please tell me you're watching "Scream Queens" on VH1!

I've been meaning to say this for a few weeks now, but I'm finally just getting the chance:

Scream Queens is the awesomest show in the history of broadcast television.

Seriously, this is what reality television was invented for, I'm convinced. In this competition 10 "actresses" subject themselves to a litany of horror-themed humiliations in order to score a highly sought-after role in Saw Whateverthehellnumberthey'reupto.

Being that this is a VH1 reality show, there's a lot of drunk girls passing out in limos:

But being that it's about horror movies, there's also a lot of white-hot bad acting, unconvincing screaming, and general unhinged amazingness.

I knew from episode one when I heard the words "Hollywood heavyweight Shawnee Smith" that this was going to be fucking awesome, but even I had underestimated just how batshit insane the girls that they'd cast would turn out to be. Jessica and Lina (who went home last night, thank GOD) are particularly loonytunes, but really there's enough crazy to go around.

Seriously, this shit is like honey-flavored crack nectar straight from the tit of Laurie Strode herself. I'm obsessed. I count down the minutes to 10PM on Mondays like it's my fucking execution date.

Right now former Nickelodeon child star Lindsay and kickass non-actress (which in this context is a compliment, trust me) Tanedra are my faves to win. I LOVE YOU CRAZY BITCHES!!!

Here's a clip from last night where director's challenge mentor James Gunn (Slither) calls dumbass Lina on the carpet for backing out of a girl-girl kiss.

The always-entertaining Rich Juzwiak is recapping the show over at VH1.com, so if you've missed the first 4 episodes please allow him to be your guide. Seriously, you're insane not to watch this mess!

R.I.P. Michael Crichton

Author, screenwriter and director Michael Crichton died yesterday at age 66 after a battle with cancer. While most people will likely remember the prolific sci-fi writer as the guy behind Jurassic Park, he'll always have a special place in our hearts for writing and directing the classic thriller Looker, in which he had models spin around in cheap curtains and fall out of windows onto cars.

He will be missed.

Cancel the dance or it will happen thrice

Can I just say that I fully expected to be arrested for wearing this getup and toting an actual pickaxe on the subway? Nope, nothing odd about that in the least. Thank you to the random girl on the L train at 2AM who gave me a Kit Kat. And thanks to Kim & Eric for taking this kickass picture and hosting the awesome horror movie party!
