  • If you are a dork like myself, you should be very excited about this Project Runway Season 4 Cast Info. Honestly, I can not wait until November 14th - which is the season premiere date for the 4th installment of Project Runway, my favorite reality programming since the first season of The Real World.

  • Nicole Richie enters an anti-drinking driver course. Richie signed herself up for an 18-month long course, the SB 38 Alcohol Program, which is for people who have been convicted of DUI on more than one occasion within a 7-year period. I have a program - CALL A CAB !!!!!

  • I will murder Will Smith before I allow this to happen. The actor is attempting to remake Karate Kid and of course the asshole would put his kid in it. I grown to accept the assassination of "Adventures in Babysitting" Disney will be partaking in sometime before the Apocalypse, but why mess with this at all???? Every 80's child should revolt. If we can not stop the war in Iraq, let's move our attention to this battle!

  • CBS wins the ratings battle that was last night. "CSI" and "Without a Trace" beat out Grey's Anatomy on ABC and The Office on NBC.

  • Gina Gershon is super hot, so naturally she is nuts!!! The actress will be performing 7 nights in a row at The Box here in NYC and it will be her new concept album about losing a cat. Whatevs...

  • Mollygood shows us the new David Lynch commercial for Gucci....Check it out here. This dude really loves young pretty girls dancing around in mood lit rooms. I do know that Lynch can usually sell me anything.

  • Sutherland officially charged with DUI

    Kiefer Sutherland has been officially charged with two misdemeanor counts of DUI, according to TMZ. Sutherland, who was arrested under suspicion of DUI earlier in the week, was charged with one count of driving under the influence and another count of driving with a blood alcohol level of .08.

    Since Sutherland was on probation from another DUI arrest in 2004, the City Attorney's office is looking to revoke the probation until his arraignment on October 16th. The 24 star could face up to a year in prison if convicted of both charges, but since this is LA, I think less then two weeks will be served.

    I personally think a Lost Boys - DUI & REHAB Edition is very much needed! Not just so the Coreys can find some redeemable work, also so we finally find out where the hell Alex Winter is?

    Daily Round Up

    Ok so let’s start off the Daily Rounds with a look at the above picture and understand how this guy got away with murder – even if he invented the wall of sound.

  • It’s official. LA is the most dangerous place to live if you are a woman.... The Phil Spector trial ended with a mistrial after two weeks of a deadlocked jury. While the jurors are already running to the news outlets to tell America how close it was, we are left wondering – will anyone ever be found guilty of murder in LA when its so painfully obvious they committed the crime? So heads up all wanna be wife beaters – LA is the place to be.

  • Bam Margera thanks Jessica Simpson for sleeping with him, pissing off his ex-girlfirend, who then broke all his stuff and led him to his true love Mindy.

  • The first model goes home on America's Next Top Model. Tyra pretends she cares by having the first photo shoot be a basic anti-smoking campaign and having the ladies take two pictures - one pretty with a cigarette and the other them dying of cancer or face lesions. It was gross and weird and all the things I love about this shit fest. Tyra sent the girl who never cries and looks like a creepy version of Thora Birch. I just can’t wait till the makeovers so we can shut up that Brandy chick from Queens.

  • Mollygood discusses the creepy new pictures of Michael Jackson. With a recent photo shoot with Bruce Weber for a magazine article.

  • Martin Scorsese will direct and produce a documentary on the life of George Harrison. Robert Redford will take on the big sreen adaptation of Richard A. Clarke's memoirs of his tenure working in the White House, "Against All Enemies".

  • Julia Allison describes how the internet is to be thanked for how easy it is to become famous nowadays. Prime Examples!!!!

    And I would like to say a big thank you to Mollygood who quoted my David Hasselhoff post from yesterday about his upcoming gig on E!. I read Cord's site every day and am excited for that kind of exposure. THanks again!!!

    REMINDER:make sure to check out the season premiers of My Name is Earl & The Office. They are both an hour long and begin at 8PM tonight on NBC. I am extremely excited to see where Pam and Jim are!!!!!!!

  • Top Chef Round Up

    So last night, the judges sent Brian Malarcky packing after the elk challenge. The final four were flown into Aspen after having a month off and were welcomed right away by Padma and Eric Ripert., 4 star chef for Le Bernandin here in NYC. The four were challenged to prepare just caught trout right out of the lake and to be honest, I thought Brian was going to kill it. He didn’t and Casey won the quick fire challenge. When it came to the elimination challenge, the four were asked to prepare a meal showcasing Elk and make sure that the cowboys at the ranch would be into it. Tom also interrupted their cooking to let them know that since the caliber of chefs they had this year was so good, they would like to bring 3 into the final challenge. I have personally never eaten elk in my life, but I have to say Casey’s and Dale’s dishes looked damn good! Hung of course was the technical best, but the judges thought there was no heart in his food, or much of anything that he has cooked in the season so far. He then began to discuss growing up an immigrant from Vietnam, doing it for his mom, blah blah blah….luckily it wasn’t too little too late. Brian’s was too busy, too kitcshy and the delivery was almost annoying with cowboy hat and 25 different ingredients. People want to eat the food dummies, not hear about it.

    The judges first explained how all four meals were of great quality and then decided that Dale’s, while a bit overwhelming with the amount of ingredients, was the best meal out of all of them. This was Dale’s first challenge win and it was a good one. He won not only a place in the finale, but a chance to spend a weekend with Chef Ripert and do a demonstration with him, which is probably a dream come true for a younger chef.

    At this point, I really have no idea who is going to come out on top, because if Dale continues to put out quality plates like last night and with his new burst of energy, he actually might take this. While Hung is obviously the most “gifted” chef, Casey has a real love and interest within food. I think that if any three of these chefs won I would be happy, because neither of them are Ilan or Marcel – who both stunk in my opinion.

    Gunmen at St. John's

    According to Gawker, a gunmen was detained today at St. Johns University in Queens, NY. The suspect has been arrested, but the school is still under lock down and cops are searching each room, throughout the campus. I believe the full search is just precautionary, especially after the Virginia Tech incident earlier this year.

    WNBC is reporting that the man was carrying the gun in a bag and wearing a President Bush mask. They also confirm that while no one was hurt, the school is still being searched.

    Here is the official statement from St. Johns and their website:

    "A male with a rifle in a bag was apprehended on St. John's Queens campus today. Public Safety officers quickly disarmed the suspect and have turned him over to NYPD. Additional information will be forthcoming as it becomes available."

    This story is still developing....

    Thanks a lot Seacrest!

    Yikes! David Hasselhoff is getting another TV Show.

    Thanks a lot Ryan Seacrest. It turns out that E! has given the go ahead and will have Seacrest produce "Tales From the Hoff,", obviously starring David Hasselhoff. The program, which will only indulge Hasselhoff’s belief that he has talent, will follow the “fictional” life of an “international icon” as he tries to revive his career and date in Hollywood after a long marriage and nasty divorce. Hasselhoff apparently approached Seacrest to produce the program after discussing with friends what a great TV show his life would make.

    “Tales” is said to be similar to that of ”Curb Your Enthusiasm” in that reality will be blurred with the fictional character. What famous person would pretend to be friends with David Hasselhoff, I will never know, but I can guess their careers will be fledgling as well. Dan O’Keefe, from The Drew Carey Show, and Chuck Russell will write the pilot and direct, respectively as well as exexcutive produce with Seacrest. Ugghhh, I can’t believe this guy still gets work, let alone his own show, but we are talking about the E! channel , which attempts to make working at a tanning salon interesting.


  • Heidi Montag really is not that smart. The celebutard declared to US Weekly that she hated her body before she had a nose job and breast enhancement. Montag also said that she would have rather died then remain flat chested. Now I understand wanting to change yourself because you don’t like your reflection, but to die for it, I am not so sure. Man this chick loves publicity!!!

  • Speaking of morons and plastic surgery, the Simpson camp finally confirm Ashlee's nose job. I also confirmed this two weeks after the surgery when we saw her new nose. DO THESE PEOPLE THINK WE ARE MORONS? Seriously, if you have had your picture taken all the time and put in the press, please don’t try to fool us with plastic surgery. Its okay, we know you are expected to look near perfect, so just fess up to it. We all will have a lot more respect for you slugs!

  • Anyways, a Pumpkins show became deadly this weekend. A man was killed at a Smashing Pumpkins show on September 24th in Vancouver, in what the police are calling a “mosh pit incident”. I don’t want to look towards the negative right away but I am assuming that his family will sue if possible. Can this be a lesson that angry moshing and crowd surfing can end unless you are at a show where angry moshing is warranted?

  • If want something and can't afford it tell Renee Zellweger. The actress discussed a pair of Manolo Blahniks with a makeup artist at the South Hamptons Saks Fifth Avenue during the artist’s lunch break. When she returned to her counter, she was presented with the same pair of shoes, with a card from Renee explaining it was her treat!

  • And in other scary skinny chick news, the Anti-Anorexia billboard backfires. The billboard, which showcases Isabelle Caro, an Italian model who weighs only 65 lbs, was used by an Italian fashion line to support the backlash of skinny obsession in the fashion industry. Unfortunately, pro-anorexic groups (anas) are using her image as inspiration. To think there are people out there purposely not eating when there is so much amazing food in the world, is sad. It's also sad that people so far gone in an eating disorder can find validation from a woman so sad with her own reflection.

    And in casting news...

  • Actually she will be returning to SNL! Maya Rudolph will be returning for here eighth season on Saturday Night Live in time for the season premiere this Saturday. Wowzer, make up your mind!!! I am pretty sure money played a big part in her decision.

  • Chaka Khan makes Broadway debut in “The Color Purple”.

  • "Recount", produced by HBO Films the film based on the recounting of the controversial Florida results in the 2000 presidential election has announced its cast list. Kevin Spacey, Laura Dern, Denis Leary, John Hurt, Tom Wilkinson, Ed Begley Jr. and Bob Balaban will be starring in the made for TV movie which will revisit the world of politics that led George W. Bush to become President of the United States. Dern will be playing Kathryn Harris, and since she is coming off of INLAND EMPIRE, I think she is already to play the crazy lady!

    Music News....

  • Meg White says it is not her in the sextape that leaked all over the internet this weekend. The White Stripes had already cancelled their tour for her "acute anxiety" and now this. Good thing these kids are in a rock band and not on a Disney show.

  • Rufus Wainwright brought the Judy Garland show to the Hollywood Bowl this weekend. Wainwright brought back Lorna Luft, Garland's daughter, to help him perform the final Judy Garland tribute (the tour began last year at the original venue, Carnegie Hall). Reviews are favorable and I am sure it was a beautiful night under the stars and then traffic hell!

  • Ghostface Killah, Trail of Dead and ADULT SWIM present a free concert series. The closest they come to NYC is Albany, so I will be missing out on this.

  • Clear Channel agrees to buyout. Word is still out if this will change any of their daily operations or their stranglehold on a lot of the live music venues/radio stations all over the U.S.

  • CMJ Marathon comes to NYC. The shows being October 16th and this lineup is actually turning out to be quite good. I have a few shows I will make sure I get to this year around, such as the 1990s and Sons and Daughters. You can check out the full list and purchase tickets at Oh My Rockness .


    While you were watching the Iranian President (insert unpronounceable word here) come to New York to insult gays, Jews and woman and President Bush was cracking up the U.N, here’s what you missed:

  • Jack Bauer is no longer a hero. Kiefer Sutherland was arrested on DUI charges last night in West Hollywood, after allegedly blowing more than twice the legal limit of .08. Apparently the re shots of 24 had really gotten to him, oh I mean re shoots. Since this is the actors second DUI in the past few years, a jail sentence will most likely be mandatory, but since this happened in LA, Sutherland will probably do less then a half an hour in the slammer.

  • The rumors were true. Maya Rudolph will will not be returning to Saturday Night Live. Rudolph, one of the three lone women on the late night skit show, let producers at NBC know only 5 days before the program’s season premiere (this Saturday with LeBron James & Kanye West). The remainder of the ’06 – ’07 case will be returning and no word if any supporting players have been added on. Of course, NBC will not say why she has departed, but that they only wish her the best.
  • Speaking of Kanye West, he reported to Wendy Williams on her Vh1 show that he is the number one human being in the music industry.

  • And on the topic of idiots, Bill O'Reilly is still a nimrod and apparently a racist. and the jury is still deliberating on whether Phil Spector is guilty of murder.
  • Hopefully Dane Cook has some original moves. The comedian got friendly with a lady and of course it leaked onto the internet.

  • And in pregnancy news: Salma Hayek had a baby girl, Charlotte Church had a baby girl and Nicole Richie boils her unborn.


  • Spielster Update

    Note to all Spielster readers:
    After serious thought and debate, I have decided that there will be no more posts about Britney Spears on this blog unless she:
    - Dies
    - Loses her kids
    - Becomes a scientologist
    - or marries O.J. Simpson

    I am sick to death of all the coverage she gets and a bit bored of seeing her boobs, vajayjay, flabby butt, poor driving skills, mediocre “performances” and her legal troubles. I am also tired of hearing from her previous friends and employees on how she is a terrible mother and an overall mess. These are things you tell people when you can utilize your power over them, not after the fact (This rule should also be followed by anyone who has worked in the Bush Administration and then publishes a book acknowledging their lies.)

    So until the day this woman is actually doing anything positive with herself, family, for the world, etc. or begins working at a Wal-Mart in Atlanta, you are not going to be hearing about her from me, no you will not.

    Fatwa, I hardly know her.

    I hate Ann Coulter and usually would prefer not to give her any press or converse about her, but this was too good to miss. The author personality was interviewed in British Esquire and here is one of her genius statements:

    "I WANT a fatwa. I used to see Salman Rushdie in the Sky Bar in L.A. He wasn't in hiding; he became world-renowned for his fatwa. So why can't I get a fatwa? Don't they read my stuff?"

    Ooooh, I’ll do it!!! I love how Coulter thinks she is at all important enough within the political world to get herself a fatwa. I am pretty sure her lowest common denominator hate speeches, unstoppable support of the Right and the fact that she is an American woman would not make her the most beloved character in the middle east, but I am pretty sure no militants or fundamentalists are thinking - "This woman needs to go or our world is going to end" Although, after most of her interviews I am pretty sure I am being tortured. Seriously, what do I need to do to hook this chick up with O.J. Simpson or Robert Blake. Those two seem like wonderful matches for her. Hell, maybe even Phil Spector, since he will probably walking the streets any minute.

    daily rounds

    Happy Holidays to those of you who celebrate Yom Kippur. For those of you who don't, try and have a good day, even if you don't get out of work early. Let's get to it:

  • Oh you crazy Christians....Apparently the The Miracle Theater in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., home of Dollywood, were so mad about Kathy Griffin specifically not thanking Jesus when she won her Emmy that they took action. The idiots took out a full a page ad, worth $90,000, in USA Today to discuss how much they owe to Jesus. I am pretty sure the more Christian thing would do would be to donate that large amount of money to an organization which would feed or clothe homeless people, but what am I to know?


  • Is Charlotte preggers? News crews have been all over what should be the very secret first week of taping of the Sex and the City movie going on here in NYC. I hate to admit this, but I am pretty excited for this movie, so I would rather not know anything before it comes to theaters.

  • Oh Jan, Jan, Jan???? Apparently the Brady Bunch set was even crazier then we expected and with Maureen McCormick's upcoming memoir, we will be learning how crazy it was. In ‘Here’s The Story’ McCormick says that during filming she had a bit of a crush on Eve Plumb (Jan) and the two had a few lesbian encounters. The book won't hit the shelves until 2008, but Marcia has already acknowledged she has lesbian tendencies, snorted coke and had an eating disorder. So this is who Lindsay was looking up to?

  • Rule of thumb in Hollywood, don't piss off the major players, especially if they pull in the dough for you. Dreamworks exes are not too happy with Viacom's Paramount. Steven Spielberg, David Geffen and Jeffrey Katzenberg, the founders of Dreamworks are supposedly rethinking their sale of the production company to Viacom two years ago and word is the relationship is close to an end. Dreamworks is said to be pretty pissed off without receiving the recognition from the studio in regards to these past two very successful years for both of them. No real word though if the split will actually happen.

  • Bourdain discusses this week's Top Chef And I have to agree with him that I am too shocked that Brian is still around. I feel the same about Dale. Its a huge bummer to me that Tre is gone, since I believe he had the most talent, but I am glad Casey is continuing to shine! I am pretty sure she will be crowned the winner this year!

  • And finally some Casting Notes:
  • Anna Faris goes Deep for a Linda Lovelance biopic.
  • Brad Pitt willreplace Matt Damon in "The Fighter", with Mark Wahlberg.
  • And Bette Midler, Carrie Fisher, Cloris Leachman, Lynn Whitfield, Joanna Gleason, Ana Gasteyer, and Debi Mazar have joined the cast of the remake The Women. Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, Jada Pinkett-Smith, and Candice Bergen were already signed on and shooting has begun.

    Student tasered at John Kerry speech

    No words are needed. But at this point, action will be. The University of Florida better have some good proof that this kid was actually dangerous and not just rude before tasering him. Apparently, Kerry tried to stop the police throughout their arrest, but to no avail. Below the video is a link to a view eyewitness accounts to the Baltimore Sun.

    Eyewitness responses to tasering.

    Since I will be watching the Black Lips puke all over hipsters on Bedford Avenue,

    Yep you hear right, the Black Lips will be playing two shows tonight in Williamsburg, the first at Sound Fix on Bedford and then there will be a circus parade to the show at the new Music Hall of Williamsburg, i.e. old North 6. Hopefully these fools will not get arrested before the show I spent about 14 dollars extra on because I had to buy them through Ticketmaster.


    I thought since I was bashing Ticketmaster this morning, I would publish this amazing email I saw on Brooklyn Vegan. They got the email from EJazz news and its dishing on why the music industry is suffering a very fast and angry death from us the consumers. Last night I had pretty much the exact same conversation with my friend when she was complaining about spending $60.00 on TWO Pinback tickets. Just a few years ago, these bands were having shows at Knitting Factory for $12 or less and now they are moving to bigger venues, who only deal with the devil, IE Ticketmaster. So please people, if you can avoid it, do not buy through this corporation. If enough of us stop, maybe it will make a dent, especially here in NYC.

    So lets get to it and thanks again for Brooklyn Vegan and EJazz News for highlighting this every growing issue in what should be the "underground" music scene of New York.

    E-Mail re this today:

    Want to hear something that's FUCKED UP? I purchased tickets to a Bela Fleck and the Flecktones concert in Birmingham, AL through Ticketmaster. Face value of ticket - $43. Total Charge once it's run through Ticketmaster - $111.10 for two tickets. That's ridiculous, but I like Bela Fleck and want to see the show, so I'll pony up the cash. Apparently not enough people were willing to pay $55/ticket to see the band, ticket sales were sluggish, and they canceled the show. So I check my credit card statement today to confirm the refund, and it is only for $107. I call Ticketmaster and they say that even though the show was canceled by the artist/promoter, I am not going to be refunded the full amount due to a NON-REFUNDABLE processing fee. Are you ***** kidding me? Think about that for a second--that means that if 500 people have purchased tickets, Ticketmaster is pocketing $1,500 of the CONSUMER'S money. And the consumers being ripped off are the band's dedicated fans--people who bought tickets IN ADVANCE to guarantee entry to the show! What should I do the next time this band announces a show--wait and see if they sell enough tickets so that it looks like the show is going to happen, then buy my tickets?

    Let's say that this happens in a couple of cities 2-3 times per week--you're talking over $150,000 per year pocketed by THE MAN. No wonder consumers are sick and tired of the music industry! Working with bands and having promoted shows, it infuriates me to think that this happens to enthusiastic music fans. If a band or promoter overshoots and realizes they are going to lose their ass if they go through with a show, they shouldn't further penalize the music fans they are already disappointing--they should absorb the "service fee". I'm actually glad this happened to me--a lesson learned so I don't piss off my patrons in the future. Thought you would enjoy this "fleecing of America".

    Here is the rest of the article hating on the most hated about today's music industry: 10 Most Hated things about the Music Industry

    Dan Rather got some balls....

    Dan Rather sues CBS, Viacom

    "Dan Rather has filed a $70 million lawsuit against his former employer CBS, its corporate parent and three of his former superiors, saying they violated the terms of his employment contract.

    Rather alleges the network gave him insufficient airtime on “60 Minutes” after forcing him to step down as anchor of the “CBS Evening News” in March 2005."

    The anchor was asked to step down after a story about President Bush's service during the Vietnam War was investigated and evidence came forward to show Bush did not serve his full time or to the degree he has described. CBS was hit with huge amounts of flack for this, as the story came to a head during the election of 2004 and painted President Bush as a liar. Rather and three others were used as a scapegoats and were forced to step down.

    I am very excited that Rather has chosen to bring the full story to the public and I believe he deserves the money that was coming to him, since his career suffered from all the rumors and innuendo.

    MORE TO COME....

    Monday, September 17, 2007


    Well this weekend brought us some confirmations on things we should have known already. Let's get to it:

  • Where have I seen this picture before? Apparently, O.J. Simpson is a dangerous criminal and it's all caught on tape. Simpson was arrested on multiple counts of robbery with use of a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery, burglary with a deadly weapon, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and coercion, and it being held without bail at this time. If convicted, Simpson could be facing up to 30 years in jail.
  • Someone might have been hired to kill KFed.... The FBI is currently looking into this story, which seems to have a good amount of merit behind it.
  • Alan Greenspan, former Federal Reserve Chairman has published his memoirs and let's us know that oil was definitely the main reason we invaded Iraq - not terrorism. Don't you love how these people always tell truth once they are no longer in positions of power?? Greenspan also takes some blame for the dot-com bust and says he believes the Euro might take over for the dollar in world trade and soon.
    Fox bleeps Sally Field and it's coincidentally during the part of her speech she goes off on the Iraq war. Fox doesn't like anti-war speeches, but they didn't mind when Katherine Heigl said "Shit!" after winning for best supporting actress. They also kept on turning the music and cutting everyone's speeches short.
  • The Brave One hits number one in the domestic box office this weekend. 3:10 to Yuma and Mr. Woodcock were in second and third place.
  • The New York Times let us find out that Rachel Zoe is shallow and full of herself. These are shocking claims for a fashion stylist who makes thousands of dollars a day dressing up anorexic celebutards. Oh and she calls sunglasses SUNNIES, which is enough to warrant a beat down.

  • Sean Young is still a little nutty and will forever blame James Woods for her "not being" Julia Roberts. No no after almost fifteen years, I am glad this woman is still in denial about her blacklisting herself from Hollywood.

    In New York, it's a beautiful day out, and hopefully it is nice wherever you are as well, so make sure you get yourself outside for a bit today and get some fresh air! ENJOY!!!


    So the Emmys were quick, painless and easy this year. The show was "green" this year, which meant no sets and a weird theater in the round setup - not my favorite. The music kicked off any award winner that took more then like 30 seconds to give their speeches and thanks - which was more then rude. I love when award shows rush the winners off stage, but have no problem doing cheesy filler, like the rap vingette with Kanye West and Rainn Wilson. Ugh, they also censored Sally Field when she started bashing the Iraq War, but just missed Katherine Heigl's "Shit!" when she won. Well let's get to the important stuff - fashion!

    First, the ladies looked very good last night and were apparently all about red and other saturated colors!! The strapless, loose look was everywhere, as well as the very structured corset style gown. Here are some of my favorites for the night:

    Ali Larter in Reem Acra

    America Ferrera in Monique Lhuillier

    Ana Ortiz in Escada

    Heidi Klum in Dior by John Galliano

    And for those of you who were focused on the awards, here is the list of the big winners. I have to say I am really excited that 30 Rock took home the Emmy for Best Comedy and it was great to see The Sopranos winning for best drama.

    Friday, September 14, 2007


    Ok so in today's news, President Bush almost admits he has been wrong for awhile, OJ could be robbing people now instead of decapitating them and Vincent Gallo is a sick individual. So all in all, nothing truly new....So let's get to it.

  • I used to defend this woman - but she is just fucking nuts now! Get help and quick.

  • Confirming what most Americans already knew, President Bush last confirmed we are not faring well in the war in Iraq and will be withdrawing troops by Christmas of this year.
  • Speaking of nutty Republicans,Vincent Gallo is still a douche bag. The "artist" went on a hateful rant towards a New York Post critic, Frank Scheck, who is working on a special "penis on film" article for the Post. Scheck apparently discusses the accuracy of Gallo's member in the famous fellatio scene inThe Brown Bunny, also starring Gallo's then girlfriend, Chloe Sevigny.
  • I wonder if these chicks do it Tantric style? Sting gets caught leaving a brothel in Europe at 2 AM.
  • Demi Moore blames her age, not her lack of talent for the dried up job offers.
  • O.J. Simpson wanted by the cops, again. Complain all you want about the injustice in the justice system, but Paris Hilton DID MORE TIME IN JAIL THEN O.J.!!!!! Now that's a sickening though! This man needs to be eradicated from this planet and NOW!!!!
  • Kid Rock explains the reason he punched Tommy Lee. Seriously, we get it dude and we truly wish more damage was done. Rock also explains why he would waste his time at the VMAs and ponders why Lee was there, especially since Lee has apparently quit Motley Crue.
  • Fred Durst was in need of publicity so badhe allegedly ran over two ladies last year and left the scene. And yes, we are all just finding out about it now, so the plan backfired loser.

  • This chick still hasn't confirmed her pregnancy??? I get that your husband is Jewish and its all kinds of bad luck to discuss a baby in the early stages of pregnancy, but this kid is going to be going to junior high before she acknowledges its presence to the public.
  • Perez Sezincreases Vh1's ratings by more then a 100% with their young demographic. The VMAs special featured guests like Amy Winehouse, Simon Cowell and Pete Wentz. Not sure what this says about Vh1's programming or their viewers, but people are paying attention in numbers to Hilton.

    Enjoy the day peeps - and don't forget to check out Spielster's post on our most recent obsession/crush - Anthony Bourdain. We will be chatting about all things Bourdain next week.

    File under guilty pleasures...

    Ok, you can admit it- you are in love with “Rock of Love” with Bret Michaels. If you aren’t watching this, you should be. It’s like a bunch of Kelly Bundys looking for love with the has been rocker, Michaels. Last Sunday, we watched the final four battle it out in Las Vegas for an all night date with the main man.

    Two of these crazies got so drunk with Bret’s “band” that they were puking before dinner.

    The stripper, Heather, sat and watched everyone get drunk while she was stuffing her face with oysters. Jess, my personal fave, won the first “alone” date because she was so helpful to the drunkies. Apparently, Jess and Bret had a real connection that night, which means they had sex and that thought made me vomit a bit in my mouth.

    The next day Jess was sent back to the “Rock” mansion (or VH1’s standard reality house) and Brandi, Lacey and Heather were in competition for that nights all night date. Brandi made the mistake of leaking out true feelings to the She-Devils, who quickly ratted her out to Michaels. Brandi was shipped back to LA, Heather and Lacey battled it out for that evening’s overnight and we watched Lacey turn the crying on once again to wrangle in Bret. This guy seriously deserves that crazy devil if he keeps falling for that shit

    In the end, the party animal, Brandi decided Bret wasn’t for her and didn’t fess up until elimination. That made Bret mad and the three girls happy. This weekend we will meet the parents of Lacey, Heather and Jess.. And Heather won’t forget Lacey stabbing her in the back in Vegas. I am seriously looking forward to that bitch Lacey reaping what she deserves. My money is on Heather at the end though….What do you all think?


    There ain't much happening in the world of entertainment this week so far. Not sure if it's they hysteria over Britney boiling over or the fact the Emmys are this weekend and people are all busy getting colonics and facials to look purrty. With the Fall season of TV starting next week, I am getting a bit more pumped for something to watch other then Top Chef and Flipping Out - especially after my boycott of MTV.

    So let's get to the rounds:

  • It doesn’t get cuter then this...Abandoned monkey is healed by wings of love from a pigeon. How can you not love a monkey???? Source
  • Unbelievable! This Friday marks the 20th anniversary of entertaining housewives with Regis Philbin.
  • This is one fight I would tune into. Vegas promoters are trying to get Tommy Lee and Kid Rock to duke it out for real in a ring. Since neither of these fools have valid careers anymore, nor IQs above 90, I am excited that this could be a possibility. Even LL Cool J wants them to do and will front money for the event. Wait, what money LL?
  • Ramona Quimby will be hitting the big screens. And I am saying this now, no FANNINGS allowed.
  • Corey Haim appears drunk and incoherent. Also, his career apparently flat lined in 1991.
  • American Idol is hoping Britney will join them for next season.
    After years of Britney bashing, Simon Cowell is interested in bringing her on to work with contestants on next years program. What Britney will be able to teach these young things, I am not sure. This is a singing competition, which she can’t naturally do without the help of auto tuning and with Sunday’s VMA performance, she can’t dance anymore either. Cowell might be really smart and be using this as a “what not to do situation” for the young bucks. Who knows if this moron would even make a smart decision about her career nowadays??

  • Vincent Gallo - still a douchebag and possibly a presidential candidate for the race in 2008. It's not like the Republicans can do any better and with his sexual past and complacency to mediocrity, it would fit right in.
  • Heath Ledger is either boinking one of David Blaine's ladies, Helena Christensen or Kate Bosworth. In any case, he is definitely over Michelle Williams.
  • So far the numbers aren't looking good for 50 Cent in his battle against Kanye West. West's "Graduation" is beating out the rapper's "Curtis" with around 100,000 additional copies sold. But neither of the artists are anywhere close to their last album sales numbers. 50 Cent has said if he doesn't out sell West, he will retire from solo work. And people don't forget that these two are basically on the same record label so upped sales for both of them mean good things.

    And finally,
    People Magazine names their best and worst dressed of 2007. Somehow with their old lady styles, Katie Holmes and Beyonce top the Best, along with stylish Cameron Diaz, Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Biel. Congrat, I think, ladies....

    Let's get it to it...

  • Thank you TMZ for creating a thousand new nightmare possibilities with this picture. 2007 is the downfall year for chicks that were hot in 1999 - Britney, Jenna Jameson, Jennifer Love Hewitt.
  • Led Zeppelin reunite....for one show in London. At least this saves me from having to get on a bus to Giants Stadium with 400 dude bros, drunk, singing "Stairway to Heaven".
  • The birth control pill not only keeps babies awayit keeps your boobs in check too. No word yet if it will begin to kick Herpes ass anytime soon.
  • Hayden and Stephen split...The 18 year old starlet finally realized since all the other tartlets are in rehab, in jail or knocked up, she has her pick of LALAland.
  • Jon Stewart will be hosting the Oscars once again. Hopefully Sarah Silverman will watch and learn something.
  • Angelina Jolie might not be nice.In other news, she has four kids, a hot boyfriend and ridiculously big news. So glad I was paying attention today.

    And lastly,
  • Courtney Love gives good mouse.

    Jason Preston, boy toy of designer Marc Jacobs, was seen wearing a mouse pin (above image)at a recent NY Fashion Week event. When asked why he couldn't take it off, he informed everyone that it was a present from Courtney Love. You could also get smack or herpes from her too, but most people don't wear that on their lapel for show and tell, jerk off!

    There are a few things I really like and I just wanted to put them all together here.

    NOTE: These are not the only things I like, nor is this in any specific order, but enjoy.

    The Cookie Time theme song from Troop Beverly Hills

    Curb your Enthusiasm

    Interpol - The Heinrich Maneuver


    Daily Rounds

    Ok so I went on my tantrum, mourned the loss of MTV in my life, watched "Rock of Love" and everything is right with the world again. So let's get to the news today. As one would imagine, on 9/11, this isn't a happening day for gossip or entertainment news. There is a bunch of political stuff to discuss, but it tends to make me mad and I would prefer to get on the happy side this evening. So let's get to it:

  • Tom Ford might night like it, but he knows it sells. And yes, I am talking about the vajayjay. NSFW

  • Oh Wah!!!! The Catholic League are whinning about Kathy Griffin dissing those who thank Jesus for everything in her Emmy acceptance speech. May, don't you guys have little kids to protect from priests??? And E! will be censoring her speech when they broadcast the program. So what else is new??? This woman says what she thinks and I love her for it!!!!!!
  • Sex and The City: The Movie wanted to increase the amount of gay males in the audience with their newest edition.They have signed Jennifer Hudson to the feature length film as Carrie's assistant. I am also guessing Ms. Bradshow will be Queen Blogger in this one.
  • Does this girl actually work there? I mean what does she do as "guest list coordinator" that needs an office. And how much money does a club promoter make, while not selling drugs on the side, that they can have this amount of office space???
  • Stephanie Tanner is pregnant and Half of Michelle Tanner is on drugs. Nice going Danny!

  • Can she be any cuter? Reese Witherspoon dishes all, well almost to ELLE magazine for their October issue.
  • Kennedy Center picks it recipients for their 2007 Honors. Those who have received this award are Steve Martin, Diana Ross and Martin Scorcese. The Honors will be presented on December 2nd at the Kennedy Center and will air on CBS later that month, on the 26th. CONGRATS!!!!!!!

    And finally, Somber ceremonies acknowledge another anniversary. On this day, please try and connect with a loved one, take a stab at something new and just enjoy what's around you. If there is no better lesson from the horrific attacks of 6 years ago, it is that we are not promised tomorrows. Let's celebrate life today for the gifts we have and keep those who have lost a loved on in our hearts.

  • In the wake of today,

    I am not sure which direction I want my posts to go into. I on one hand can discuss the fact that 6 years after the 9/11 attacks we are no closer to any sort of acceptance of the events, nor can we comprehend why they occurred.

    All day I have been commenting on Gawker on what the Britney debacle of Sunday means. Did MTV use her? Has America used her? Is she using herself? I pretty much agree with all three. While discussing the issue with some of my comment buddies, we began discussing the sexualizing of kids - especially females in this country. I would like to just put up one of my posts from the conversation here and I really would like to hear some feedback from you my readers.


    Please read the whole article The Truth About Britney and then this comment.

    "I think what is dangerous about Britney is that we, the royal we of American entertainment spectators, created her. We have turned watching celebrities, especially young, naive and coverage hungry women, into a sport. The problem is this girl is playing along and I think to some point can not live without being in the limelight. She could have easily slinked back a few years ago and grown up. She could have said "Stay the fuck out of my business!" But instead she put the train wreck on parade.

    America is definitely partly to blame and its a two fold problem. The first is our recent acceptance of mediocrity (lip synching singers, dumb Presidents, faulty administrations). Still to this day it pisses me off when you hear morons explain Bush just sitting there on 9/11/01 and say "He did the best he could." Really is that acceptable? When did just sort of trying become admirable in this country? This attitude is everywhere - supermarkets, wall street, at my own desk - but its huge right now in the music industry. Spears hasn't sang a note in public in probably 4 years and no one seems to mind this.

    And the second one is - We over sexualized most of our young woman stars - i.e. "Rolling Stone" cover of Spears in a her undies at age 16. We let Brooke Shields lay naked at age 12 as a prostitute in a movie. I believe Jodie Foster was 14 in Taxi Driver. Don't get me started on the perverse conversations that occurred until the 18th birthdays of the Olsen Twins. We spray tan 6 year olds for beauty pageants. And whats really bizarre is once these girls actually begin partaking in "sexual activities" we freak out. We splatter the news of Britney making out with men all over the covers of magazines. We mock her for "becoming a woman" too soon, because all the media wanted was a sexual plaything.

    Do I think she has played a major role in the demise of an artificial career? Yeah because unlike a lot her counter parts she lacks talent and more importantly creativity and free thinking. What we saw on Sunday was a just teenage brat not wanting to do what was asked of her? And thats her prerogative, but if you don't want to do it, then don't."

    Did you hear the one about Britney????

    Ok, so topic of the day unfortunately was not the Patraeus Report, which outlined, if any, progress in Iraq. It was not the conversation that we are a day away from the 6th anniversary of the September 11th attacks and it definitely wasn't the death of Jane Wyman, thefirst Mrs. Reagan.....It was this craptacular performance.

    I truly don't where to go with this one. I have chatted about this all day....with strangers on the street, coworkers, friends. Hell I am shocked my grandma didn't ring me up so we could discuss it. All I have to say is thank you to MTV for making it easy to dissolve the long standing relationship we have had. After years of going back and forth, I think it is safe to say you and I will no longer be doing business together. My interest in your programming about spoiled rich kids, spoiled celeb kids, horny college kids and the all around parasites on culture you manage to build your franchise is done. And I believe if it safe to say I will not be the only person you spent much marketing cash on that will jumping the MTV ship. You have been replaced as TASTE MAKER OF AMERICA'S YOUTH. Your goal to spread mediocrity has succeeded and unfortunately, damaged yourself during the process.

    I think about your all too important presence on my adolescence, where it was your station that brought me images and information on music and bands that I loved. It with the help of your channel, I first figured out the conformity was not a necessity. It was there where I saw people with dyed hair, tattoos, playing guitars, spitting, living in LA and I was enthralled. Now for all the naysayers, I am aware that MTV was about marketing back in the early 1990's as well, but it was selling a view point I never saw before that. I grew up on Long Island, in a middle class family, with no brothers, sisters or cousins within 25 years of my age to lead me down an informative path when it came to music. MTV helped through this dilemma and many others throughout the US. In the mid -90's, MTV spread underground and alternative music, both on the rock and hip hop side, and brought a different feel to the business. I saw videos from Jane's Addiction, Tribe Called Quest, Chili Peppers, Butthole Surfers, De La Soul and others and I became excited about music. They also continued the social experiment, The Real World where you saw cast members deal with real issues, such as alcoholism, AIDS, religion, race, etc. and when The State and Idiot Box were programs on the channel. (I know they cancelled both of them, so settle down.) As the nighties wore on, MTV changed directions again and reverted to the bubble gum pop machine of yore and kids ate that up too. But in the past five years, MTV has been on steady decline. Show after show focused on uninteresting brats, slutty college girls and rich jerks. There were a few highs- Jackass, although talk about celebrating mediocrity and the lows, pretty much all of the casts of reality programming since 2002. But the disappearance of the core of MTV - music videos - has been the biggest low. When MTV does play one of the five videos on it rotation, they play it to death to the point of nausea. Its a joke that MTV even held the VMAs this year. The VMAs of the past were celebrations of artists who were all over the network and for promotion of Fall movies. But at least before you knew what videos were nominated because you actually saw them on the channel. I am not sure who told MTV executives people wanted less music on one of the only stations dedicated to music, but let's just say they were misguided. In the past two years, Myspace and YouTube have been taking over the job as trend awareness for the ages 14-35. MTV has lost its relevance each year and has official become the joke of the industry. With last night's programming, MTV stooped to a level I didn't think they were bold enough for - they really thought we were dumb enough to like what they shit out. These type of programs take months in the making and this is what they came up with - really? I mean do you really have that much distaste for the people that sign your paychecks? I know you have been grasping at straws recently, since your only program doing anything good ratings wise has as much drama as a six grade fight, but this is really what you thought might bring the people back? I know there have been months of discussions of re tooling your efforts and I really thought you started understanding your audience, the ones who have left and lost interest and you were going to go back to showing videos and promoting music. And then I saw the never ending promos for this shit can and I realized, you don't give a crap about your past, present or future viewers. You are a company who has no problem selling your customer crap and here is the proof one last time that any salvageable credibility you had is lost.

    And I would like to say a final fuck you to you too!

    I'm a bad bad blogger...

    With this past weekend's weather and lack of cool information within the entertainment arena, I have stepped back from my daily duties of blogging and enjoyed a long weekend at the beach. I am now back in NYC and still bored to tears with the news in H-wood, but a writer's dilemma is to write about things when nothing is really happening.

    So to start off, I would like to thank Nouvelle Vague and their cover of "Bela Lugosi's Dead" with me winning today on Jonesy's Jukebox on Indie 103.1.

    All this week Steve Jones is running a contest to join the man in Hawaii for a week of broadcasting fun. I am now entered into that prize option and might possibly be chilling with one of the raddest dudes to ever touch down in LA LA land. Listen to Mr. Jones from 12PM - 2PM PST every weekday on 103.1 or listen online. I make sure to check out the show everyday from my computer all the way in NYC. Wish me luck!
