April Favourites! The Media Edition!

Hi all!  So kind of late since it’s almost the middle of May, but I really wanted to blog about my media favourites for April 2011.  Basically what I have been into music, movies, books, and television-wise. Oh, and as a side note, do you like the new layout of le blog?  I hope you do, I wanted to switch it up a bit.

But anyways, here goes!

Music

Okay so I was into a little mix of everything for April, from the Black Eyed Peas (who I haven’t liked in a while) to Nicki Minaj (whom I can’t stand) to some old favourites like Akon.

I also want to note that I have been really into podcasts lately, especially Above and Beyond’s Trance Around the World, you can download it off iTunes for free and I believe that they put out a new one every week and the best part is that it’s two hours!  That may seem like a long time but if you want background noise it’s so perfect.

Television

Okay so I don’t really watch television that often because I don’t really have the time.  There are some TV staples that I watch every week like Desperate Housewives but that’s about it.  I have really been into Khloe and Lamar and The Dance Scene (only because it’s on after Khloe and Lamar), but I have to say, I have been loving Audrina Patridge’s new show, aptly titled Audrina.  Oh my gosh, talk about a guilty pleasure, her family is so whack, but not in a Kardashian way.  Her mom is so crazy and her sister seems to freak out pretty easily.  And it’s weird how the dad seems to talk a lot about how his daughter is famous (I mean obviously she is, but usually on these reality shows, you don’t hear people talking about how famous they are).  I think I prefer this show to The Hills because it seems more real and her family is just so darn entertaining.  It’s a VH1 show but I just watch it online at mtv.ca.

Speaking of mtv.ca, I have been loving the new series of 16 and Pregnant. Okay I was totally obsessed with the first season of show and then Teen Mom (with the original cast).  I didn’t really watch the second season at all, but oh my, how I have been loving this new season!  How juicy was the episode with Jennifer?  I couldn’t believe her deadbeat boyfriend just left with the twins in the car and her by the side of the road.  This show has seriously become more than just a message of “don’t have sex” for kids, it shows how much of a loser boyfriends can get after they knock up their girlfriends (not that all the baby daddies on the show have been that way, but a good handful of them). Love it!

Movies

Sad to admit but I don’t think anything stuck out to me this month.  Scream 4 was good, but if you want to hear me talk about it check out my Horror Weekend post.  Another movie that comes to mind would be Waiting. I have never seen this movie before but heard a bunch of good things about it.  So when I came across it on Netflix randomly I was like “why not, I’m bored anyways…”. This movie is actually so funny, so glad I watched it.  I loved the charter of Amy (played by Alanna Ubach, she was so funny how she was so mad one moment and then fake nice the next.  If you haven’t seen this movie, check it out.  Hilarious!

Books

Sad to say but the only book I read in April was Kardashian Konfidential.  I had no time and when I did, I picked this book up.  I’m not going to go into too much detail because I already blogged about it, but if you want something fun and juicy to read, pick this up.  If you don’t want to shell out the $30 CDN for it then check out your local library they may have a copy, I know mine did.

So those were my media favourites for the month of April!  What were some of yours?
