Pimp My Ride: The New Class

So I caught the new episode of Pimp My Ride in the new garage, with the new cast last night, and may I just say, it was exactly as dissapointing as I predicted. Overall, it did what a Pimp My Ride episode does best, it had plenty of X to the Z eyebrow pops, it had the pimpee in question freaking out when he got his fixed up ride. What it didn't have was Alex, and Danny, and Ish, and Big Dane. What it did have was an owner who was too busy mugging for the camera to care about anything else. And can we talk about the owner, Beau or whatever, for a sec? What is up with the hair? Jon Bon Jovi circa the Dead or Alive video called. He wants his hair back. And while we're on the subject of hair follicles, the dude who is a sub-par accessories guy on this show, the one with the spikey hair and the equally sub-par eyebrow pops and half-ass attempts of looks of inquisitive that turn into looks of stupid confusion because all the TIGI products he is using to make sure his hair will not move have apparantly eaten at his brain? That guy? I refuse to learn names for the new cast because they are unworthy at this point, but that's besides the point. The point is he looks stupid with the hair and the hair dye and piercings and all. I'm not against the punk hair. I usually applaud the mohawk and the faux-hawk and especially the died mohawk. That hair takes guts and anybody who has got the guts to go for it, well in the immortal words of Eddie on Empire Records "You're a Rebel Man, We salute you."

But on this guy? It's just for show. The hair is pretentious and so is he. If you are sporting a certain look, you've got to own it is what I'm saying. Alex owned those chin spikes. Owned them. This guy? Not so much.

It's not say that this episode didn't have it's moments. The new interiors guy? The pseudo-Ish? Cracked My Shit Up. He made me momentarily happy. He gets a pass. But everybody else on this show, Mad Mike included? Better step their game up if they expect to keep me as a viewer is what I'm saying. Who am I kidding? I'll probably watch anyway, that's how low my TV watching standards are. I even watch "So You Think You Can Dance" so it's not like I ask alot from the programming folks, but still. Pimp My Ride, Step your game up or I'm walking...

What if they got tater on the show, I think that would spruce things up.

Of course you'll watch this crap, you are crappy realilty tv junky. I think if some weird perverse way that's hot.

Tater!!! Tater spruces everything up. I mean Fast Inc. is really kind of a boring show, but then you add Tater!! to the mix, and it makes it a good show. The fact that a man that looks the way that guy does has a nickname like Tater can bring any show up from the ditches.

So you're saying you're turned on by my ability to watch crappy tv? That is possibly the second strangest fetish I've ever heard...

I'll bite, what is the first fetish

You remember when we used to watch Real Sex on HBO and there were several really bizarre fetishes, from the people who were into food and sex to the people who dressed up like fairies to the people who liked to use power tools? I'd say they're all tied for first...
