The PopWatch Confessional (Vol. 35)

Cowboy_lSpot Inspection: What’s your current obsession?

Mine is cowboys. I know this because:

(1) I just spent three days at the Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut watching the PBR (that’s Professional Bull Riders), and returned home with: the 2008 "Cowboy Hunks" calendar; photos of myself with seven of the sport’s finest (including top-ranked Justin McBride, who, this just in, sings!*); and the firm belief that watching a man mount a 1,900-lb. beast named Evil Forces while "You Shook Me All Night Long" blares in the arena is somewhat of a turn on.

(2) When I received an email announcing WE’s new dating reality show Girl Meets Cowboy (premieres Oct. 14), I responded immediately asking to see the first episode.

(3) I’m not-so secretly hoping that the Hallmark Channel is about to repeat its 2003 original Straight From the Heart, starring Andrew McCarthy and Teri Polo.

Your turn.

* "Beer Drinkin Songs" doesn’t entirely suck.

    funny you should mention that. The Cowboy Way was on the other day and I had to watch the whole thing, regardless of how bad it was/is. Made me want a mustache like Kieffer though.

    The fall TV season. I can’t get enough of all the new shows and new episodes of my old favorites. I keep hoping all the new shows I like don’t get cancelled. I check the ratings every day.

    Current obsession? No, mine is an obsession that’s been going strong for at least 10 years now. I’m impossibly obsessed with teen drama. I’m 30 years old, and my Friday nights are devoted to watching the N. I have two tivos, and both are clogged with endless amounts of Degrassi episodes. I even have passed my Degrassi obsession to my husband. I’ve even started reading novels from the “young adult” section of the library.

    My current obsession is all things Nikki Sixx. I have been a Motley Crue fan since “Dr. Feelgood”. Nikki was always the heart and soul of that group. Not to mention he is also very easy on the eyes. I read “The Heroin Diaries” and now I just can’t get enough Nikki Sixx.

    Mine must be alcohol because when I read PBR, my immediate thought was Pabst Blue Ribbon.

    The Luke and Noah storyline on As The World Turns. I’ve never watched a single soap opera in my entire life, but someone told me there was some hot gay love going on, and next thing I knew I had stumbled upon a YouTube user (LukeVanFan) who had uploaded versions of each episode of just their storyline. We’re on episode 74 now. These 6 minute videos make my afternoons!

    After last night, my obsessions are A)Pushing Daisies, and B) Anna Friel (who after one episode I’m ready to add to the Kristen Bell pantheon of TV stars I’m in love with). I also have a strange hunger for pie.

    I’m with you, Vicki. I’ve been overly interested in this fall’s TV season. I have spent sleepless nights trying to keep up to date, so that I can read TV Watch and Mini TV Watch and not be spoiled. Another current obsession is Dancing with the Stars. I go to YouTube to see if the latest performances are online. And young adult fiction, too. Hmmm … it’s like you’re all living parts of my life! :-)

    Ever since I saw my first episode of Alias, I’ve been a wee bit obsessed with Jennifer Garner. My friends totally make fun of me for it, but they are good friends since they honored my birthday wish and sat through Catch and Release (apparently we were the only ones). I’m currently trying to pool funds and plan a trip to NYC to see her in Cyrano with Kevin Kline. They say the first step is admitting you have a problem.

    I’m freakishly obsessed with Kevin Smith. I’ve listened to all 31 episodes of SModcast at least twice, I just finished listening to his entire 5 hour stint on Opie and Anthony, I’ve read each entry in his blog several times, and I’ve seen each of his movies hundreds of times I don’t post on his website, though, because I don’t have the time, nor the inclination, to turn my obsession into a lifestyle, as many of the posters over there do. But man, is that guy funny.

  • Kristi

    NFL Football! I know this because…
    A) I log on to my fantasy site like every hour even though things rarely change once the line up is set! haha
    B) One of my fav shows is NFL countdown Sunday mornings on ESPN!
    C) My biggest TV crush right now is probably Tony Romo and i’m disappointed with Tom Brady over the baby stuff, but he is my fantasy QB so i still love him.

  • Suz

    Honestly, I’ve been mildly obsessed with EW online lately. All the lists and polls and confessions. And I still have a subscription to the magazine!

  • Kristi

    I guess there are 2 of us Kristis now, but I have to give props to the other Kristi now and say thanks for reminding me–I have to go set my fantasy football lineup for this weekend.

  • Shirley

    My obsession is my DVR ever since I got it thinking it would make my live easier because I could go anywhere and not worry abot missing any shows, but now I’m afraid that the shows in my bank will erase so I’m watching tv constantly.
