I'm a nerd and proud of it. Two degrees in geology also means I love BEER. :-) I'm also a Derek lover - proud of that too. So don't scream at those of us on this site and call us a bunch of "biased Derek-lovers" - it's just ME. :-) It may sound like I hate DWTS at times, but really, I'm just a snarky nitpicker from way back. And I'm cynical and jaded too. But I do love DWTS. :-)

DWTS 9 – The Last of the Week 4 Media

At least it is if I have anything to say about it. :-) First is E! News which had a very short piece on Aaron, Maks and Karina – mainly the backstage cat fighting which I’m finding more entertaining than the actual dancing. Or at least up to this week it was more entertaining. The show seems to be improving like I hoped it would once we got down to a smaller number of dancers. Anyway, Maks took a shot of his own – it was very subtle, which was why I loved it. He tweeted that the energy on the show ought to be good this week (since he’s possibly dancing with Joanna and will therefore be back on set). :-) You go, dude. ;-)

Access Hollywood has a long bit on DWTS – the first part is a rehash of LaToya fawning over Derek’s abs, but the second and third parts are new. Wait for the second part – they say something very interesting and claim that Paula Abdul said it. Very interesting in light of recent discussions around here. The third part is a day in the dancing life of Kelly Osbourne – which just made me love her even more. :-)

Dancing with the Stars Season 9 – Who DIDN’T Join the Show

Well, I see it could have been someone other than Tom Delay.  Someone who might have brought more entertainment value to the program. :-) Maybe.  If one is old enough to remember when he was Vice President.  ;-) From the DePauw University Website:

Decision to Decline TV Show a Family Matter for Dan (’69) and Corinne (’43) Quayle

October 18, 2009, Greencastle, Ind. — In today’s Indianapolis Star, Dan Quayle — the 44th Vice President of the United States and 1969 graduate of DePauw University — reveals why he turned down a request to appear as a contestant on TV’s Dancing With the Stars: his mother. Corinne Pulliam Quayle, a 1943 DePauw graduate, “was instrumental in his decision not to appear on the show,” notes the “Behind Closed Doors” column.

Dan Quayle tells the newspaper, “My mother actually called me up and told me that I’m not a good dancer. Yes, I’m serious. So you listen to your mother,” he said with a laugh. “I said, ‘Well, Mother, I’m actually a pretty good dancer. What are you talking about?’ She said, ‘No, you were never a good dancer. Don’t do it.’ So how’s that for an endorsement?”
