Weekend To-Do List: Bad Behavior Edition

153739__shakira_l(Shhh, don’t tell anyone. I’ve secretly replaced my Diet Coke with Smirnoff Ice.)

You can hold your tut-tutting, people. It’s Friday afternoon, Arrested Development just got the hook, and if you hadn’t noticed, Katie Couric was on the air when I started blogging today. In fact, since we’ve entered a judgment-free zone, let’s make our weekend to-do list all about bad behavior, shall we?

-Check out Shakira’s new video for "Don’t Bother" (above). She’s a baaaaad girl.

-This weekend’s new movie offerings, Get Rich or Die Tryin’ and Derailed, focus on folks engaging in risky business, but EW’s critics have declared both films to be bad — and not in a good way. Instead, get in line for the wickedly well-done A History of Violence.

-EW’s Alisa Cohen says you’d have to be high not to love Reefer Madness, now out on DVD.

-Find out why Jason Lee’s character is everyone’s favorite scoundrel when NBC presents a My Name Is Earl marathon on Saturday.

-Uzodinma Iweala’s novella, Beasts of No Nation, follows a boy on the front lines of a brutal civil war in Africa, and our own Thom Geier says it’s a remarkable work.

-And while it’s more than 10 years old, Sandra Bernhard’s Excuses for Bad Behavior, Part 1 fits neatly into our Weekend To-Do theme, and it’s still in my regular CD rotation. All I wanna know is, where’s Part 2 already?

    I second that. I just love Shakira (man, if i was straight…), can’t wait to catch up with Jason Lee, and I almost wore my Sandra t-shirt that reads “Honey, the s*its insane” on it today, but decided I needed to keep my job for now (does that count?).
    Michael, ya’ll need to get out of the office. As much as I just love reading your posts, a boy needs to live…

    Did you all just miss that one little sentence? It’s the end of Arrested Development. Finish, over? And no one even posted one line? An award winning comedy, and no one even cares? You all deserve a closet full of Joey DVD’s.

    Shame about AD but I’m still surprised Fox has kept on the air this far.
    And I agree about Sandra Bernhard’s Excuses for Bad Behavior — it’s a fave from the 90s — I hope there is a Part Two as well.

    Is it just me or does Shakira manage to make music that already sounds stale and dated? I can’t stand that voice…either she moans like Cher or turns into baby-girl voice. Horrible horrible stuff.

    There is an Excuses For Bad Behavior Part 2 CD…check out http://www.sandrabernhard.com and it’s available there (as well as some other website only discs.

    That Sandra CD (EFBB Part 2) isn’t really a follow up to part one- just a concert that really has nothing to do with the original studio album from the 90’s. Who knew? Well Liza knew- which leads me to AD- I will miss that show- I’m so bummed it’s not on tonight, I was looking forward to Rita’s final episode. I’m glad that they are going to have a chance to film the last few episodes- I’m sure they will be great and skewer FOX accordingly.
