Brew Wrap-Up: 2012 Year In Review

Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in 2012, year in review | Posted on 30-12-2012

2012

I don’t know about you but 2012 was surely a year for change and growing more firm in my standards to become the woman I’m supposed to be (halleluyerrr). This year had some great highs and some clutch-ya-pearls lows. As the year wraps up, let’s take a look back at a few of the moments that made headlines.

Notable Moments
Obama Correspondents DinnerBarack Obama wins re-election
Poor Mittens
The Prince put a baby (or two?) in the Duchess
Mass shootings in Newtown, CT and other cities lead to new calls for gun control
Gabrielle Douglas whips her hair to Olympic gold
Hurricane Sandy can’t crush New Jersey’s spirit
Miami won a championship but Chris Bosh’s champagne shower is all I remember

Come Ups
here_comes_honey_boo_boo_a_hHoney Boo Boo…a dolla made her holla
2 Chainz… rapped about big booty hoes all the way to a Grammy nomination
That Fifty Shades of Gray lady
Sweet Brown. Everybody got time for dat.
Britney Spears…from bald headed bashing of cars to a paying TV gig. (UPDATE: Looks like Brit Brit is finna get fired!)
The Queen… frolicking with James Bond during the Olympics gave her some street cred
Frank Ocean. The kid is just nice.
Kristen Stewart cheated on her Twilight boo with her movie director, took the heat from millions of tweens then got back with her old boo like nothing happened.
Katie Holmes. Girl, yous free!
Khloe Kardashian Odum may not be the next Seacrest but she sure is becoming the anti-Kardashian (does she even make appearances with them anymore?)

Falls From Grace
gen-david-petraeusDavid Petraeus. If the head of the CIA can’t keep a secret, we’re doomed.
Amanda Bynes. Girl, go get you a driver!
Lance Armstrong…lost his Tour de France titles and his charity.
Clint Eastwood. The chair bit really tanked.
Gabriel Aubrey’s eye. That Frenchman knocked you the fugg out!
Jerry Sandusky finally got the chance to meet the Booty Warrior behind bars

Thanks for supporting us in 2012. We love our new Brewchies and our friends who have followed us since the beginning in 2009. Big hugs to everyone who bought some Brew merch this year too! It’s not too late to do that, you know? We’re planning new ways to reach out and touch you (in a non-pervy way) in 2013, so stay tuned for more events. Best wishes for a fantastic 2013.

Happy New Year, Brewchies!

Brew Commentary: 12 Things I loved about 2012 #10 SCANDAL

Scandal. Shonda Rhimes hit us with the HEE with the premiere season of the super soapy White House based series Scandal. Kerry Washington leads as Olivia Pope, head of her own Fix It Factory.   The character is  based on real life Crisis Handler, Judy Smith, who I sincerely hope never smooshed one of the Bush Presidents.

Each week there’s some randomly facacta event that Olivia and her team of Gladiators in Suits  has to get her often privileged douche-bag clients through.  Gray areas exist, you’re never sure who the good or bad guys are.   As in real life, in different situations  people can be a bit of  both.  Blah blah blah, you know damn well you’re in it for the hot sessy time scenes between Olivia and Prez Fitz!

The show has not been without  criticism  that the only network show with a black female lead  portrays  that she is morally, um… flexible.  Find me someone in DC, who is not. I’ll wait.  I’m sorry, watching perfect people do perfect things all the time, is BORING. Give me some soapy goodness, so I can forget about my shit- tastic day in REAL DC where nothing sexy EVER happens in my work place.   (Thankfully.)

Kerry Washington and  Dude From Ghost Tony Goldwyn’s chemistry is so palpable that you find yourself actually ROOTING for cheaters.   Then the sexy times are super sexy.  I mean HOW DO THEY DO THAT ON NETWORK TV?  AND THANK YOU.

Add in all the angst ridden staring,  pouting  and wanting. So damn dramatical.

 

When this first aired, I asked my fave dude: “Why come you don’t ask for One Minute with me?”

Him: “Cause I’m not married? Or corny.”  Sigh.

cookbook
Our favorite N*gga in Paris is coming out with a second cookbook, which is pretty funny because I imagine her just munching on big fat air sandwiches for the most part. “It’s All Good” (how hip of her!) will have all the recipes us normal people poke into our pie holes, you know, because this Goopy bish is so damn down with da mortals, nah mean? I’m sure in the Forward, she’ll mention how she tried the collard green recipe out on Bey & Jay! So, are you checking for this?
