What a tangled web they wove (Tuesday)
I hope they didn't pay much for the housepets this year.. the free spiders outside are far more fascinating to the hamsters
Kaysar throws a moth into this one's web and they love watching it get wrapped up and devoured.. the irony is rich
I missed much of today again but they didn't do much.. the parannoying picks up in the evening and into the night - they vote tomorrow so they all scurry around trying to avoid a tie or worse
They get arts & crafts like psych patients.. the nominees/conversation topics dive in
Kaysar makes a nametag so George can learn there's no Z in his name (all writing materials were always been forbidden before).. Will relaxes knowing his minions are busy doing his work.. Diane stress-snacks, like she does.. if she stays and goes on slop it won't be pretty
Everybody's up in arms about the Mr. & Mrs. Smith pre-show alliance thanks to Diane's ex-roomie/ex-friend Toni Ferrari tattling to some of them about it weeks ago - Toni was on "Paradise Hotel" but has somehow become the 15th hamster on BB7.. they talk about her enough that she signed a release allowing that - whose list was she on?
James brings up M/M Smith to Jase (Mr. Smith) who denies it.. he also denies being at a Boogie restaurant party others say he was seen at
James & Kaysar have a heated discussion because James wants to keep Diane - Kaysar even drops an F-bomb.. Nakomis "doesn't campaign" by having several chats with Kaysar and saying "we should trust Jase"
Marcellas tells Jase & Boogie "I'm not gonna be season 6's bitch.. if they're scared of Diane staying in the house then we should keep Diane in the house.. I intend to honor our deal and I'm keeping Diane".. he then goes to HOH to inform Kaysar & Kompany
It's a mess.. right now (and subject to change) we have Willboogie, Jase, George, Danielle, Marcellas (6) voting to evict Nakomas; and Howie, Janelle, James (3) voting to evict Diane.. Erika says she'll do what HOH wants
Nakomis was the target when Kaysar nominated her & Diane, and now he's the one leading the charge to keep her - go figure.. James & Marcellas are butting heads about it.. Danielle & Marcellas laugh about "the rookies" upstairs taking it all too seriously, and making it too stressful for this early in the game
Videos to help explain or further confuse:
Jase & Boogie after Marcellas said he'll keep Diane
Marcellas tells off Kaysar, Janelle & Howie - Erika's in there too, again
James can't sleep - another visit to HOH
Marcellas gets in James' face video by Aldav - they kissed & made up after
James: I just don't want my name thrown out there
Kaysar: Basically your job is reconnaissance and you're useless to us if nobody trusts you
Big Brother art (Monday)
This is the kind of pic you only get on Big Brother, or maybe a pricey conceptual art gallery
Morning comes late since half of them were up late wasted and the other half are weak with hunger, but they have business to attend to so BB hauls them out of their beds at the crack of noon
Nakomis chats with George while he slops & cooks.. it's a nice chat.. she's joined the Kaysar & Will hair twisting club now - maybe she thinks it'll make her look cool or keep her safe, or something.. Diane rolls out and poses/stretches
Nakomis: San Antonio is kinda like Venice but it's smaller, and it's in Texas
This reminds me of my favorite Nakomisism, when she explained the Five Fingers & a Pinkie Plan to her alliance 2 years ago: 'As long as Neil Armstrong is still going to the moon, that's all we need to know.. there's gonna be a touchdown, or there's gonna be a Challenger disaster'
BB calls for backyard lockdown and trouser situations pop up all over: Jase continues whatever he's doing.. Will pulls his down his hips to sit down (and we know it isn't to catch the rays).. Danielle's flying to HOH bathroom so fast she's already unzipped
Extended flames and WAY TOO LOUD music come and go, and we find Diane & Nakomis having a little party in the red room (redrum): the veto wasn't used.. but apparently nobody told them the game had started or what the rules are.. it was only last night Nakomis was on our tv screens saying "It's officially 'Big Brother' now" to Janelle and smiling, kinda
Nakomis: Kaysar wanted to nominate me & you even though his teammates were like 'what the fuck are you thinking?' Kaysar always gets what he wants
Diane: I'm not down with the golden child anymore
Nakomis: Everybody in this house has absolutely no backbone whenever it comes to the game
Nakomis: [about Will & Boogie's behavior] That isn't playing the game, that's just causing drama.. that's just making good tv
Diane: I'm just real disappointed in the game in general
Nakomis: Yea, it's not a real game
Diane: It's like a really bad season of Big Brother.. the games are not good, not a fighting chance to save ourselves, cuz we're playing golf
Diane: Big Brother obviously doesn't give a shit that we're on the block
Diane: I'd rather Cowboy was here cuz at least he could be manipulated
Diane: Alison campaigned and look what happened to her
Nakomis: I was praying the other night and God told me to campaign
Nakomis: This isn't all-stars.. people aren't playing the game - people came on here to make good tv
Nakomis: Will wants to leave!
Diane: We can't even beat a person who wants to leave
Nakomis: I feel like the quiet girl who made a card house and they come along and threw a baseball bat through it
[one or the other]: Did you see Will's face?
Marcellas joins and commisserates with them a little while - he does it well - then he stands in the corner for a minute before leaving
Nakomis: Don't straight up tell us 'we'd like to save one of you' or 'I'd love to save both of you' and then not use it.. please, don't cop out like that
Marcellas: We've got a general who will not listen to his troops
Nakomis: I came here to play a game and the game isn't being played
Nakomis: Fucking no one's standing up for themselves
Diane: How can other people let themselves be manipulated?
Refresher: Part of Kaysar's plan is to give the appearance that the BB6-ers are in shambles.. it worked well enough that it fooled Janelle, James & Howie for a day and it's clear that it fooled Nakomis & Diane also, and Marcellas steps right up to reinforce it
It's a whopping good time all around - watch the videos part 1 - part 2 - part 3
Marcellas goes out to join his fellow slopsters, with a quick scolding to Boogie first about last night's shenanigans and "the reign of terror is not working".. when he moves on, Jase & Boogie talk about Janelle "We watched last season, we know she's not dumb.. you can play the dumb blonde but you have to have a personality with it"
Flames and WAY TOO LOUD music come and go all the time: unlike fresh hamsters, these guys know they can keep talking about who or what they aren't supposed to talk about and they won't get kicked out, so we're all getting used to mini flames
But not long after the nominees' pity party/bashfesh the flames and WAY TOO LOUD music come and stay for a long, long time.. when they finally go away, everyone is working everyone all over town, in a frenzy of not-so-secretive meetings and not-so-quietly-whispered scheming than we usually hear
New storylines passed out and scheming scenes being rehearsed? Things that make you go hmmm..
I don't keep close track of the convos so I won't report on them.. they were all mostly Nakomis-Diane-Nakomis-Diane, but the sheer number of them and combinations of participants in such a short time span was amazing, and these aren't all of them.. a few extracurricular highlights:
Janelle has a rare and surprising Anna Nicole moment
Nakomis gets around but Diane stays put as people come to her.. Kaysar will give himself a haircut later
Jase shows off a fancy jacket we'll see him in some Thursday
James sticks to one spot too.. Janelle's back to normal, and George washes windows so we get streak-free views - thanks George!
Bath buddies 2006
It's a silkier, sudsier bath buddies than we're used to when Janelle & Marcellas share a bubble bath
They talk some game and they sample products.. it's relaxing and fragrant - you can just tell it is
Kaysar comes in surprised (like I did).. he says "Oh.. sorry.." Marcellas says right away that he's in his undies and Janelle in her 'kini, it's all innocent
All day, all evening it's pssst pssst DianeNakomis pssst.. since the goal is to create confusion, it's pointless to follow.. I'll stick to random shots
Danielle's perky but Marcellas has lost his sudsy glow, for now
It's definitely an up and down kind of day in there
It seems to me like Erika's posing a lot, mostly for the windows/cameras/us.. draw your own conclusions for the third one, and/or it's just a depth perception thing
Get 'em while you can: it's going to get a lot worse before it gets better
Pssst pssst to pfftt pfftt
The guys say they never see the tarantulas move.. this one waves at Janelle
Lots of videos again today
Let's get Diane out of the way first: she gets a rash - Janelle says it might be hives and then lends her nail polish.. later she's crying again
The sloppers are getting gas.. Howie's are especially bad so he carries a room freshener spray can around with him.. hamsters don't seem to like <pfftt pfftt> in mid-sentence anymore than they like Howie's farts but hey, he's trying to be considerate
Dodgeball videos turned out kind of cool.. it's a fast intense game outside while charades are going on too, but the audio is James, Janelle & Howie talking and studying in the kitchen - part 1 - part 2
Tazer is a little Janelle & Howie skit.. Marcellas is directing, but it comes out more like Tazer out-takes.. funny stuff
Willboogie make an unexpected visit to Janelle.. Jase shows up and also Marcellas.. the summit is virtually complete here, with a bonus flip over to Diane drama at one point
Kaysar & Will are both hair twisters when thinking.. Will seems to be worrying a bit too when he twists - he doesn't do it a lot
HOH summit - part 1 - part 2 - part 3 - part 4 - part 5 - part 6
A bit later they make similar offers to Kaysar & Howie in a shorter and funnier meeting
The HOH crew talk it all over later along with everything else from the day.. they want to evict Diane but all the day's psstt'ing didn't result in a confirmed majority.. they end up having some laughs again like the olden days.. outside Willboogie play to the fans a bit but feedmasters cut to flames when Will asks us for a favor
Kaysar stays up all night and cleans up the backyard
The Complete First Season
Lots of extras
I don't care who wins, I'm just here for the cheap entertainment - the cheaper, the better
