Iddo Goldberg: Close Encounters of the Skeeting Kind

Iddo Goldberg: talented, insanely attractive, and proud owner of a Facebook profile. I know what you’re thinking: Who the hell is Iddo Goldberg? Why the fuck should I care? Well, chances are you’ve seen Iddo appear in a number of tasteful cameos, such as the news anchor in Run Fatboy Run, Billie Piper’s only co-star in Secret Diary of a Call Girl, and yes, even Skins! I would also like to add that he played the director in Amy Heckerling’s “I Could Never Be Your Woman”, but that movie only makes sense if you know who Amy Heckerling is, and more importantly, what her hair looks like.

Apologies for the Late Skeet

The Lord decreed Sunday as the day of rest. I am now decreeing it the day of Skeet. Well, for this week at least. Sorry for missing Friday, we were, uh… busy. Get over it!!

Dev Patel!

Okay, admittedly this is sort of a weird skeet for me, mostly because this guy kind of reminds me of my brother when he was 18, and sometimes Dev has been seen sporting the infamous “crustache.” I’m willing to overlook that because he was Anwar, a member of the genius ensemble cast of our favorite guilty pleasure teen drama import “Skins,” and because he’s the lead in what I’m told is a really fantastic film, Danny Boyle’s latest and greatest, “Slumdog Millionaire.”

Skins, Like, Totally Rulez!!1!

This post is way overdue, and the only reason I finally got a fire behind my ass to write it is because I saw a mention of Skins in New York Magazine, and I feared that if I didn’t publicly declare my love affair with Britain’s best teen show before it became really mainstream and everyone recognized it for how awesome it was, I would look like some kind of pathetic hanger-on/Jonas Brother-loving teenybopper who is just another jerk trying to act like they knew about something before it was cool, when in fact, they only learned about it after reading New York Magazine. This is not the case. Me and the Googly Cru have been into Skins since it’s first, original premiere in February 2007 which we watched forrealsies while we were in Dublin. (Eat it, thirteen-year olds.) Not only was Skins a fucking great original show among a sea of Scrubs re-runs and crappy English soaps, but it was a reason for us all to come together and act like high schoolers in a foreign nation, so far from home.
