Stop Doing That!! | Film Events | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Stop Doing That!!

A humorous outlook on new up coming seasons of popular TV shows.

If you're currently doing something... stop doing it. I need to tell you something very important - and I need your full attention. Are you currently giving CPR to your mother? Stop doing that. What I have to say is that important. Are you just about to bang Mila Kunis and her previously unheard-of twin sister? Stop doing that. I need to tell you something important.

Okay, now that I have your attention, here's what I have to say: If you plan on doing ANYTHING this Sunday, don't do that. There is simply too many amazing things happening on television this Sunday to warrant doing anything else - and this includes, but is not limited to: Rescuing a kitten from a burning building. (Important... but not important enough.) Saying goodbye to your boyfriend who's going to study in Europe for a year. (There's no point... in his mind, he's already porking a cigarette-smoking, beret-wearing French girl who rides around on a bicycle carrying a baguette.) Eating any food, drinking any liquid, or inhaling oxygen or anything else into your lungs. (Only exceptions: pizza rolls, bourbon, nitrous oxide.


So what are these amazing TV things on Sunday night that are going to stop you from telling Kanye West you'd be happy to go on tour with him? Oh, just the following:

* The Celebrity Apprentice (NBC, 9 pm). While I'm loath to recommend ANY show featuring that walking piece of toupée'd feces Donald Trump, I have to admit that this year's lineup of washed-up celebs is fairly awwwwwesome. For example! American Idol runner-up Clay Aiken? (Ka-BOING!) TV's Incredible Hulk Lou Ferrigno? (WHAAAA??) '80s pop darling Debbie Mothereffing Gibson? (SQUEEEEEE!) Whoop-whoop former talk show host Arsenio Hall? (WHOOP! WHOOP!) And... hold on... Star Trek's Sulu and most awesome gay dude alive George Takei?? (I don't have a sound effect worthy of this man - so I'm making one up. MALABALAFALAPAPA!!!)

* The Walking Dead (AMC, 9 pm). While last season lacked the desired number of zombie decapitations, tonight's episode pits Rick, Glenn and Hershel against a mob of brain-hungry undead. (Zombie Decapitation Pro Tip: Always stretch out first - swinging a shovel can strain on the lower back.)

* Eastbound & Down (HBO, 10 pm). Failed baseball star Kenny Powers (Danny McBride) returns for a third season of hillbill-arious shenanigans. After his exile in Mexico, Kenny lands a pitching gig in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina - a perfect place for him to ride his Confederate flag boogie board.

* Life's Too Short (HBO, 10:30 pm). Here's that new Ricky Gervais' mockumentary starring Warwick Davis - the little person from Willow (AWWWWW!) - who plays a fictionalized version of himself experiencing the day-to-day woes of being a dwarf actor in Hollywood. (Which is still better than being either Lindsay Lohan or Kim Kardashian, right?)

* My Strange Addiction (TLC, 10:30 pm). And finally, what better way to end the best Sunday night ever than with the stone cold freaks of My Strange Addiction? On tonight's double-header, people who are addicted to a) cleaning out their ears, b) eating cellophane tape, and c) drinking fingernail polish. DON'T YOU PEOPLE HAVE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO??? (If it's Sunday night, I guess not!)

Follow me on Twitter (@WmSteveHumphrey) - unless maybe you have something more important to do?
