Frenchie! Dipped in Cream’s Newest Contributing Writer

Hey, everyone! My name is Frenchie and, as you can guess from the title of this post, I’m a new contributing writer for DiC! I’m really excited to take this further step in my online writing with the company of Julia and co., creators of endlessly entertaining media.

I was born and raised in the Bronx, NY and, that thing people say about us having attitudes? Its all true, just so you know! Knowing the wheres and whathaveyous of celebrities or the entertainment industry at large has always been one of my favorite things; the advent of twitter/tumblr/all social media has made it that much more satisfying and I ALWAYS have something to say about it. Hopefully, my charmingly-sarcastic point of view involving the “industry” and its players has found a home here on DiC. I think so.

Topics I’ll be sure to address here include but are not limited to:

-General “celebs in the city” happenings as they’re constantly underfoot. Like roaches. But ones we actually like. Who doesn’t enjoy running into Norman Reedus at a rave?! *Side note: That was a couple of years ago and the photo came out awful. Norman looked fine; I looked like a hot mess and never shall it see the light of day. Also, I was more invested in the fact the he’s a MacManus brother, holla!

-Red carpet outfit/street wear critiques. Because I’m thisclose to rolling up with a whiteboard and a chair, it is that serious.

-Ruminations on the abject wtf-ery presented on social media.

-Nerdery, more often than not. I get deep into tv shows/movies/books/etc. DEEP. Come down that rabbit hole with me.

I sometimes think that my opinions should be kept to myself. Julia disagrees. Clearly, I trust her judgement! Tally ho!

Twitter is my shepherd, I shall not want: @lafemmeluna

‘The Simpsons’ Meet ‘Breaking Bad’ – Look Who’s On The Couch!

How crazy is THIS? Marge is making the latest rage in baking:  blue cupcakes with “Blue Meth” sprinkles…but wait. It gets better.

When tuning into “The Simpsons” Sunday (April 14), don’t be shocked to see the family missing from their usual spot on the couch. Instead, viewers will see Marge, Homer and the kids working in a new family business: “blue sky” cupcakes.

 
As Marge makes and sells the cupcakes at the church bake sale, Homer oversees the operation by sleeping on the couch and sneaking some batter for himself, while wearing a porkpie hat similar to “Breaking Bad’s” Walter White.
 
As the animated scene ends, the camera finds White (Bryan Cranston) and Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) in their lab suits, sitting on the couch, drinking beer and watching “The Simpsons.” It’s a very fun video tribute to “Breaking Bad,” complete with the two leads from the show making cameo appearances as their characters, all set to “Crystal Blue Persuasion” byTommy James and the Shondells.
 
“The Simpsons” airs Sunday at 8 p.m.

 

 

It’s funny/disturbing that these “meth” cupcake how-to’s are all OVER Pinterest.  Seriously. Go look.

Watch Dave Grohl Jam With Trent Reznor and Josh Homme

Dave Grohl may have left the Foo Fighters behind, for now, but he isn’t staying away from music altogether. He’s been keeping busy with the Sound City Players and promoting his documentary, ‘Sound City.’ In this clip, Grohl jams with Josh Homme from Queens of The Stone Age and Trent Reznor on a song called “Mantra.”


 

The three are working together on the next QOTSA album, and this might be a taste of what’s to come, or it’s just three music nerds having fun with their instruments. Dave will be at SXSW next week to deliver the keynote address. The “Sound City: Real to Reel” soundtrack will be released on March 12.

[Ed. Note: I saw this film for its One Night Only showing, and this song was breathtaking in the huge theater (The Cinerama in Seattle) with state of the art sound. I understand folks who may not dig its “tinny” sound on their laptops or iPhones. Good headphones or a good sound system will change your mind–and DO order the dvd.  Effing AMAZING. – Julia
