Why I Love the MTV Music Awards

This guest post from Walter Horn

My favorite awards show is the MTV Music Awards. I look forward to this ceremony every year. I think it is the liveliest of the awards show on television. I wish that MTV had it during the January or February season, so we do not have to wait until August or September. After all, the award shows play earlier in the year.

I enjoy seeing what the bands and artists are going to wear. It is not your typical formal affair. These artists go all out for the MTV Music Awards. It is truly entertaining to see what they are going to wear on stage or on the red carpet.

The hosts change every year for the MTV Music Awards. Unfortunately, I did not like Russell Brand or Chelsea Handler as hosts. I am not sure who I would like to host this year's MTV Music Awards. Possibly Jimmy Fallon since he is funny. It would be great to see Carson Daly back on MTV even though he is not funny.

Exercise & Ramblings 101

After two weeks of ignoring the scales, I am thinking of weighing again on Wednesday. I know I have probably ganined a few pounds, but maybe not because jeans are getting bigger on me. Over the last week I have ate too many 'sweets' and I need to stop that little habit. I've been ill with a sore throat, so there have been days I skipped my workout. As I am writing this, I have not done a Tae Bo workout, but I plan on doing one later after eat, probably a salad. I was planning on having a workout finished early in the morning, but I watched the new True Blood episode from last night which I recored on a VCR. Yes, I'm probably the only person who still uses a VCR.

For the readers who don't know me, I am a Tae Bo fan. After searching the web the other night for fitness equipment, I found out that there are two new Tae Bo workouts coming out in early September, Tae Bo Ripped Extreme and Billy's Bootcamp Sweat Off the Sizes. My birthday is in September, so maybe so…

Reviewed by Billy Burgess

Author, humorist and actress, Lisa Pedace, takes a humorous approach on the subject of dieting, a stab at commercial/Hollywood dieting schemes, and jabs at the weigh-obsessed culture where we are fed twenty-four hours a day by the media telling us what we should and shouldn’t do. The Diet Joke is meant to be a reprogramming guide to help you jump start pass the culture nonsense and help you get starting on changing your life for the better, which isn’t easy since we are constantly bombarded with messages/commercials about new food products. We have to learn that these companies are here to make money and that they don’t care about out health. We have to be smart and not let the advertisers brainwash us into buying the products we don’t need. Even our own government wants to control our health, but we are the only one’s with the power to do somethin…
