BANTER BLENDER #99: Ray Rice, Taylor Swift, Joan Rivers, and ‘Utopia’

Writer Jessica Ogilvie (Playboy) returns to the Banter Blender podcast to discuss the latest events in a summer of craziness. We start with Ray Rice and the larger question of can bad behavior ever be forgiven? This leads to discussion of Chris Brown and Michael Vick before eventually landing on the most pressing debate of our time: Team Taylor vs. Team Katy.

Yes, the Taylor Swift / Katy Perry feud is addressed with the gravitas it deserves, and then it’s on to Fox’s new reality experiment, “Utopia.” Trash TV or a disturbing look at our society?

Finally, we close out the podcast with talk of Joan Rivers and her career. Along the way, there are plenty of asides about Starbucks, puss caterpillars, ISIS, and even Ferguson.

Tackling the tough topics as always!

BIG BROTHER PHOTOCAP: Why Make A Big Move When You Can Sit Pretty?

big-brother_0013_Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 2.48.55 PM.png.jpg

Well, here we are — umpteen weeks into a once promising season of Big Brother, and we’re stuck with a dominant alliance that would rather pick off outsiders than think 1.5 steps ahead and make some big moves. It’s been the story of the summer, which has seen a passive minority slowly picked off by a surprisingly loyal majority. In some ways it makes sense — why turn on your team when there are easy evictions to be had? But what happens when the outsiders are gone? That’s when the Detonators will detonate themselves, and everyone who thought they were safe will suddenly regret the handy votes they could have had in Nicole and Donny. It’s their own dumb fault, really.

I guess I’m just bitter about Nicole winding up on the block. After all, there’s nothing more frustrating like watching the promise of a returning player getting snuffed out before she can wreak total, vengeful havoc. Is it so bad that I want something fun to happen on this show? The season started off so well. SO WELL.

Sigh.

Photocap after the jump…
