Design Chick's Blogaboo!

Posts Tagged ‘Television


New section alert!  I know Laura and I haven’t been writing a lot lately and it’s mainly because we’ve been so irritated with the world.  We’ve decided to channel our inner frusteration and make a new blog section.  Let us know if anything irks you too!  We might just feature it.
What’s the deal with….

Shampoo Commercials. Why is new shampoo always a “breakthrough discovery” and “perfected science”?? is that even possible?!  Do attractive women in lab coats and heels actually mull over the perfect ingredients? Its hair soap for peats sake! Soap + water = bing bang boom! clean.

Toilet Paper. Does two-ply really make a difference? is your bum THAT messy? Has one-ply actually ripped in your hands while wiping??? If so, maybe the real problem is coming from the source, if you know what I mean…

People who “bum” cigarettes. When someone on the street comes up to you and asks for a cigarette its become the social norm to say “sure man!” without thinking it strange. But what if someone random came up to you and asked for a piece of gum when they see you pop one? Or worse, a fry from your McDonalds happy meal?! You’d think they were a FREAK!  “um no…I don’t even know you…seriously?”.  Think about it!!!

No mirrors in change rooms. This is the WORST! Pretty sure when I try something on I’d like to see what I look like without everyone staring at me when I walk out to the communal mirror in the middle of the store. I don’t want to point fingers COSTA BLANCA, but this is just unacceptable!

The popcorn button on your microwave: Seriously have you ever actually pressed that button?  I have and it literally and technically only pops about 2/3rds of the kernels.  If you don’t know how to pop stop advertising your popcorn popping skills.

People with those big ear hole earingsFor real, that shit doesn’t grow back so why the hell would anyone ever do that to their ears.  I actually have trouble making converation with people who have them.  I just keep thinking you must be dumb as rocks. DUMB AS ROCKS.  It’s almost bad as doing this.

Rat tails:  I know it’s not the 90’s and not many people sport rat tails anymore but on occasion I do see them.  I always think to myself, that awful fashion/hair choice took years to develop.  For PETE’S sake, how has nobody told you how disgraceful rat tails are.  I also think, anyone with a rat tail must come from a trailer park (no offense all you trailer parkers we only have love for y’all) and how is that nobody at the trailer park has gotten drunk enough to just walk up to the damn thing and and cut it off.   I would do it after a glass of pinot…sheesh.


I would just like to say that Laura and I are mute and can only speak through blogging, so this does not represent us in the least.  Still funny though.  Watch episode 1 & 2 of Shit Girls Say below.


I know we have fans from all around the world.  Like Jimmy who wrote us last week from Germany.  He told us about how much he loved our horoscopes and how if he hadn’t read ours last month he may about pooped in a bucket in public (how embarrassing!)

Anyways, not all of our adoring fans know that we are actual designers for a living.  SAY WHAT?  Yes that’s right.    Chill Magazine (yes we design that)  is holding a contest right now to vote for your favourite cover.  Easy as pie.  You vote, you win beer.
So vote for your best (preferably one that I’ve designed okay). Click here to go to the contest. If you don’t you will get sick in the next week and you will have a 100% probability of  losing control of your bowels. Just sayin’.


Our latest interview is with Rick Campanelli.  Rick is known nowadays for his work on ET Canada.  If you are like me you remember him as Rick the Temp from Much Music.  He is not very tall, but he had very strong and bountiful answers to one of my questions.  The rest I’ve answered for him since I think I know him pretty well.  I met him years ago on the set of Much Music. I hung out with him and Pauly Shore for probably more than 64 seconds!

1) What is your favourite 90’s sitcom?
**ACTUAL ANSWER
Seinfeld.

2) Do you own any music by Rita MacNeil?
*this is what I think he’d say.
Rita and I used to date. I used to own every one of her albums.  When she broke my heart I had to burn all of them because it hurt me too much to have them around.

3) Do you have any nicknames?
*this is what I think he’d say.
Rick the Temp, Rick Campandspaghetti, Kung Fu Kitty, Candy Sass

4) Do you have a favorite hat? If so please describe or send us a photo of you wearing said hat
*this is what I think he’d say.
I prefer helmets over hats. Helmets are where it’s at.  I got this one for my birthday

5) Do you have any hidden talents? If so, please describe, or send us a video of you demonstrating said talent.
*this is what I think he’d say.
During breaks on our show I entertain our cast and crew with various magic tricks.  I can also devour the tail of a lizard in 7 seconds flat, no lie.

6) Do you have a favourite youtube video? If so, what?
*this is what I think he’d like.



If you haven’t watched the show Shaq Vs. you are missing out.  It is one of the most compelling, thrilling and suspenseful  shows on television probably in the last oh 5o years.  Each week Shaq takes on two celebs and challenges them.  Last year he did actual like atheltic stuff…this year though he’s taken on people like Rachel Ray,  Jimmy Kimmel and my brother from another mother: Justin Bieber.  Here’s footage from Shaq and Biebers dance-off…where Shaq clearly squashes his competition.


New section alert!  Rita has hand picked her favourite throwback videos.  We will be featuring a new one every day…or atleast when we remember.

Here is one sent to us by an avid reader.  It is a kids TV show from the 70’s and early 80’s filled with sexual innuendos.

If you have a throwback video you want featured on our blog let us know!


First off we’d like to say that we don’t think rape is cool.  In fact we think it’s very uncool.  That being said, we still think this news report is pretty hilarious.  Almost as good as our chicken post.
Here’s the actual news report. If you want to check out the super catchy remix click here.
