Casual Dress Friday: Avril, I Wish I Could Quit You

Its a Casual Dress Friday here at the Skeet Thrower and I know that some of you that aren't basketball fans are thinking to yourselves "Thank God it is summer - Double M won't be able to talk about basketball for like another 3 months." Well, if that's the case - you apparently forgot about the FIBA Americas Championship. I'll be honest - FIBA is worthless (and not to be confused with FILA - they use different rules, the refs are atrocious and, worst of all, their mascot is on the right. I have no clue what that is. It looks like the Veggie Cookie Monster (you'll have that in your head all day if you watch it) with a bunch of bananas on his head. I have nothing really to say about the basketball that is being played - the US should win handily - I just wanted you to see this ridiculous mascot.

Anyway, just over about two months ago, I cut Avril out of my life. Turns out, I just can't do it. I still hate that song Girlfriend. but just the other day I heard Complicated on the radio. And I listened...and I sung...I couldn't give up one of my guilty pleasures. So, I went home and downloaded the new album.

And now she's got that new song out (When You're Gone). Its nice. Its no Sk8r Boi, but I don't change the radio station when it comes on. I'd post the video, but its kinda depressing and we can't have that here. So for now, you can be happy, Avril. I'm uncrossing you out of my life. I still don't know how I feel about your new stuff, but I love your old stuff.

(That's a pretty good break for her too, considering Avril has dyed her hair blonde, stole music for a shitty song (and is getting sued for it), made music for a shitty movie and placed behind some band named McFly (sadly, not Marty), who apparently do a mean Queen cover, in The Best Band in the World Contest. You've really climbed back down that ladder of success, huh, Avril. Thank goodness she had some Mad TV rungs to break while she was falling down that ladder. Wait...)

On a side note, how is Mad TV still on the air? Who is watching it?

Apparently now, Avril likes to get drunk and get naked. How is this different from you and me (or maybe just me, I don't know)? She made Complicated. Its like Thriller only for teenage girls...and me.

She does look a bit weird with that pink streak in her hair - I'm not quite sure what that is. Must be a Canadian thing. Anyway, looking at her dress, I'm guessing she's starting to get a little more promiscuous, and that's good news, because maybe her agent will be able to push her away from cameo roles on shows like Mad TV, towards racier cameos like appearances in this slushee commercial.

I'm not sure where racy commercials ranks in terms of huge career moves, but its gotta be better than Mad TV.

I didn't even know MadTV had guest hosts. I didn't think it was possible for anybody to want to be on that show. Except maybe a few out of work comedians. (How did Anthony Michael Hall not make that list?)

Glad to see you've taken Avril back. I'm not sure how I'm going to punish you for not even linking, but embedding a MadTV video.
