It's safe to say I'm obsessed with Nurse Jackie. I also love Edie Falco, but her character is who I'm obsessed with. At the end of the last season, I thought the best of the show was behind us, but I think I'm about to like this season the most. I'm pre-favoriting this season.
SPOILER ALERT... If you haven't seen the first episode, go back to the main page.
I like Jackie more when she's using drugs. It's horrible to say, but I do. I think everyone has been exposed to a pain killer in their lifetime, so everyone knows how good it feels to be on them. I've taken more than my fair share, and I understand the addictive properties of opiates, so I relate to Jackie's struggle to a certain extent. So now that she's using again, we're in the best plot twist that could ever happen on the show.
We meet her new sponsor, who I recognize from somewhere else on TV from a long time ago. It seems as though this sponsor is pretty sassy, so I'm hoping they'll do a little partying together. I'm so excited. I feel actual excitement when this show is on, and is the only show--other than American Horror Story--that I watch without doing anything else in the background. Everything stops when Nurse Jackie is on.
I only wish it were longer. An hour-long Nurse Jackie would be fantastic! I can't wait 'til the next episode!
The following are the nominees for the 2014 Academy Awards (the ones I care about) announced by Cheryl Boone Isaacs, president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, on Thursday. For some strange reason, she was joined by "Hunger Games" actor Chris Hemsworth. Weird. I wonder who he had to screw to get that spot... Anyway, The Academy Awards will air live on ABC on March 2, starting at 7 p.m. ET. Share your picks in the comments.

I am counting the minutes until tonight's season premiere of American Horror Story: Coven. Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett join the cast this season as "the Sadist" and the "Voodoo Queen" respectively. But what I'm most excited about is the return of the amazing Jessica Lange as Fiona Goode. I haven't read any reviews, news, or spoilers about this upcoming season so I can be totally surprised by the first episode. The only thing I'm worried about is that I watched the first 2 seasons on Netflix in a matter of a week, so how am I going to endure the wait for new episodes each week? I guess that's life in the big city.
Don't forget to watch American Horror Story: Coven season premiere tonight at 10pm on FX.
My latest upload to SoundCloud, "Who Can Say?" a poem by Nicholas Emeigh:

From the collage image above, clockwise from top left:
I love this letter, and can absolutely forgive the misspellings, grammar and punctuation mistakes because this grandfather is an inspiration to all men everywhere. It just gives me this good feeling that the country and its ideals are moving in the right direction. Here's my favorite part:
"The only intelligent thing I heard you saying in all this was that "you didn't raise your son to be gay." Of course you didn't. He was born this way and didn't choose it any more than he being left-handed. You, however, have made a choice of being hurtful, narrow-minded, and backward. So, while we are in the business of disowning our children, I think I'll take this moment to say goodbye to you. I now have a fabulous (as the gays put it) grandson to raise, and I don't have time for a heart-less B-word of a daughter."
How can you top that? He actually wrote that he has "a fabulous grandson to raise." My heart melted, and I laughed out loud at the same time. I can just imagine my dad saying something like that. If only he would. Grandson, if you're reading this, you are the luckiest guy on earth to have a grandfather as cool and supportive as he is. I'm jealous.
One of my two favorite smells in the world is Speed Stick Original Musk deodorant. Regular old deodorant, not anti-perspirant. It sells for about two bucks, and is one of the cheapest deodorants you can buy, but it smells the best in my opinion. My other favorite scent is Armani Mania, a cologne by Armani. At seventy dollars a bottle, it's significantly more expensive than my speed stick, so I feel I'm getting an excellent deal. Musk is also a unisex scent, so if you're a female reading this, try it out. I absolutely love it.
