This week's SI Pop Culture Grid

Remember this from last week?

The new edition is out, which can be viewed here.

TNRLM take:

Song no one knows I listen to:
Wow. I have that iTunes app on the blog, so people get a feel for it. And I make no bones about my love of 70s and 80s Velveeta and other assorted less than hip picks. What about something relatively obscure that still racks up a significant iTunes play count, like Chris Isaak's "Solitary Man," or, N-Trance's cover of "Staying Alive?"

I think I'm addicted to:
Coffee. And ciggies. And diet Coke. And whiskey. And....

Most overrated TV show:
I won't include reality shows, since I don't think they get enough critical acclaim to be considered "rated." Grey's Anatomy? Or The Wire? (And shame on you, Roy Hibbert, for choosing How I Met Your Mother).

______________ would have me at "hello."
Carla Gugino.

I should win an Oscar for ____________
List making.

What about y'all?


  1. Song no one knows I listen to:
    Hmm. That's a tough one. I'd have to go with I'm Sorry Ms. Jackson by Outkast. I don't think anyone would expect that from me.

    I think I'm addicted to:
    Cigarettes, whiskey and wild, wild women. No, wait. That's a Jim Croce song. Cigarettes, whiskey, and Whedon.

    Most overrated TV show:
    Also omitting reality shows (In which case American Idol totally would have won.), I'm going with Grey's Anatomy as well. I made it through one episode with my aunt, but I wanted to stab my eyes out with a nail file.

    ______________ would have me at "hello."
    Lee Pace. *swoons*

    I should win an Oscar for ____________
    bread baking.

  2. Maybe I should listen to more Jim Croce. That sounds like an appealing life philosophy.

    I actually watched a few seasons of Grey's, and realized I hated every single character.

    Good choice with Lee Pace. Either one of his Fuller-show costars (Caroline Dhavernas/Wonderfalls or Anna Friel/Pushing Daisies) would be a good selection for me also.

  3. 1) That's a tough one, cause I think everybody who knows me knows I listen to a little of everything...maybe my Eminem collection?

    2)Coffee, Lost, and Facebook

    3)Hate to say it, but at this point it's The Simpsons

    4)Carrie Underwood

    5)Acting like I'm working when I'm really surfing
