I've always wanted to f**k a Porsce...

I watch a lot of kid video. Especially this week since I'm watching my two kids as well as my brother-in-law's three kids in what I am convinced is some sort of extreme payback for something shitty I did in a past life.

I don't pay attention to the stuff much unless it's Cars or The Incredibles because they're so well done. Watching Cars today I was struck by how great the opening sequence is. The thing that makes it great is that it's shot like a movie. The camera angles and the way the thing moves are exactly the way it would be done if it was live-action. When you consider that it's animation and so they can do anything they want, it's obvious that they made a conscious choice to make it look, well, real.... in movie terms. The setup is just awesome, the race sounds and Sheryl Crow blasting out and then Bob Costas says. "The Champion, the Runner-Up and the Rookie! Three cars, one Piston Cup! I actually get excited.

That's good movie-making.

This is just wrong on so many levels...

The three hottest women on T.V. who aren't considered hot

Mia Rudolph - SNL

What I like about Mia is that I can't figure out what makes her attractive.
If you break her down, she's a mess. Her hair is not good, she's got moles or some shit on her face, I don't even know what her ethnicity is (black?). And yet, in between all the weird characters she plays on SNL she will sometimes show a flash of beauty that is just incredible. I fell in love with her during a Christmas sketch when she was playing a drunk and singing with Tracy Morgan ("It's Christmas we can have anything"). The sketch wasn't even funny but there was just something about her that made me suddenly love her. I've loved her ever since. Bonus points for being funny.
Judy Reyes - Scrubs

Nurse Carla Espinoza is the only member of the cast who is actually getting better looking every year (despite the fact that she will turn..... wait for it.... 40 in Nov!) Sure, I had a thing for Sarah Chalke the first few seasons but it was just a fling. As the series progresses it's Judy and her dazzling Dominican smile that has stood the test of time. ( I say she's Dominican because that's what her character is on the show. She could be Cuban for all I know.)


Maura Tierney - E.R.

Ahh, Maura.... I've loved you ever since you were a young hottie. Now that you're older you're playing a woman with a past, a little beat up but still holding on to a smidgen of the cute girl you used to be. Maura may be the one girl on this list that doesn't really belong.... it's possible that I'm just stuck on her because she was so great on News Radio. C'mon, who didn't want to take overachieving Lisa Miller home and treat her like a tied-up goat? I know I did. Maura's problem is that she is so good at playing depressing Abby on E.R. that you begin to think that's her real personality.
