Enough reason for the WGA strike to be over...

James Franco and Mila Kunis do their rendition of an scene from "The Hills", the MTV reality program that is supposedly scripted. I know its edited to shit, but if there are writers getting paid to produce this shit, they must be dragged out into the street and shot. Franco and Kunis are perfection in this scene!

It's freaking nice out today here in New York. Sunny, 65 and slightly breezy it feels like fall just started, but I know this will be very short lived since it will be December soon and my ass will be as frozen as the fruit bars in my freezer. I love the week after Thanksgiving since it seems that all the bitches who were missing the limelight during the holidays come out in droves. I think it's cute that Paris Hilton and Tara Reid think they are still relevant somehow. Anyways, lets get back to the deal at hand and discuss today's news.....

  • I love starting off the day discussing skanky conservatives. And if you were wondering, Ann Coulter continues to suck. The WASPy bitch successfully petitioned Palm Beach to remove her address from public records after she was being repeatedly harassed at her home. Isn't this the same bitch who whined a few months ago that she wanted a fatwa against her ass. Pick a side you want people to try and kill you or do want to be protected? How can a Deadhead end up to be such a shrew?

  • Speaking of swarmy Republicans, Trent Lott will resign from politics at the end of this year, after 35 years in the Senate. Rumors are flying high in DC and allegedly the politician is stepping down because of a possible scandal involving himself and a GAY MALE ESCORT. This story wouldn't be funny it this didn't keep happening to the GOP every 6 months.

  • And in no surprise news, Winehouse cancels remainder of 2007 scheduled appearances. After her terrible reviews for her most recent shows, Amy has canceled all concerts and promotional efforts, allegedly due to her missing her jailbird hubby.

  • The Chili Peppers sue SHOWTIME. My favorite boys are currently trying to sue one of my favorite new shows, Californication. WB and the Peppers believe the name is synonymous with the group ever since the similar titled album released in 1999. I love how business always has to ruin the artistic side of shit.

  • Another supermodel out of ANTM. Due to "scheduling conflicts", Twiggy will not be returning to the America's Next Top Model judging panel for Season 10. Paulina Porizkova, the model famous for her Sports Illustrated covers in the 1980s and her small roles in movies, will be stepping in for Twiggy. Dang, Tyra Banks can't let anyone get too comfortable in their role on ANTM.

  • Alicia Keys hit number one on the Billboard chart and some lovely adult contemporary rounded out the rest. (If you can't read the sarcasm in that, well I'm sorry)

  • And finally, IFC announced the Spirit Award nominees and they will be presented in February of next year. The list holds a lot of my favorites and one movie I am SUPER STOKED to see, JUNO. The upcoming comedy starring, Ellen Page and Micheal Cera, is about a young teen who finds herself pregnant and whether she will have the baby or not. The movie, which focuses on Page's Juno and her struggle in one of the wittiest ways I have seen in a long time.

    This movie looks amazing, stars some of my all time favorites, Cera, Jennifer Garner, Jason Bateman and Allison Janney and has just the right amount of indie buzz. Here are a few articles about the movie and its screenwriter, Diablo Cody and one on the star of the film, Ellen Page, who is my new favorite girl and soon to be rising star. While NY thinks she is headed towards Molly Ringwald status, I hope a more successful career for this girl. This chick is what Samantha Mathis could have been, but with better chops.

    Hope everyone enjoyed their holiday weekend. With the beginning of the week ahead of us and hopefully the WGA strike is near an end, we need to get to the news.

  • This weekend was a good one for Disney with Enchanted, starring Amy Adams and Patrick Dempsey coming in at number one this weekend. This Christmas and Beowulf rounded out the remainder of the top three, so as always, family favorites and kid fare did well on a holiday weekend.

  • In Iowa, Hillary Clinton discussed her "relationship" with Mr. Murdoch. While doing her usual political press crap, Senator Clinton was put on the spot and forced to explain why the US shouldn't be scared of our media all being owned by one or two companies. I swear as the election comes closer, I become increasingly scared of who will take over for Howdy Doody.

  • The lead singer of Quiet Riot, Kevin DuBrow was found dead in his Las Vegas home. There is no confirmation as of yet what was the cause, but friends of the musician are already saying it had nothing to do with drugs. In other music news, Hawthorne Heights' guitarist Casey Calvert was found dead on the band's tour bus this past Saturday. No cause has been determined as of yet in this case as well. Our best wishes to both of their friends and family.

  • Oprah has some explaining to do. Apparently, there is a tell all book written by a one time high level executive at Harpo Productions. Only problem is that there doesn't seem to be any takers in the publishing industry. I guess no one wants to mess with Ms. Winfrey so they don't lose a possible place on her book club list.

  • Dan Rather discusses his suit against CBS. The anchorman wants everyone to know he didn't want to end his career like this, but once he realized his credibility was questioned, he needed to prove he was right.

  • The WGA Strike conversation picks up again this week. Hopefully they make a decision so my ass can start watching new episodes of The Office.

  • Lauren Ambrose joins the cast of Where the Wild Things Are. Spike Jonze and Dave Eggers wrote the screenplay adaptation of the classic children's book. I for one am quite excited for this animated flick.

  • And finally in boring news, The Hogans are getting divorced.

    PROJECT RUNWAY Episode 2 recap

    Ok, so this week on Project Runway was a favorite of mine because of the special guest. There had been many rumors about Sarah Jessica Parker appearing on an episode, but I can't believe it happened this early in the season. Parker was also the guest judge because the challenge this week had the designers coming up with design concepts to compliment her fall line of BITTEN, the affordable sportswear line. First, Parker had the designers sketch out their ideas, which had to fit in the line, as well as retail for $40 or less. This meant the designers had to make outfits that would cost them no more then $15 to make. Parker picked the best 7 and then the designers paired up. I think Parker missed out on a few cute designs and I think some of the "winners" were picked to see what kind of crap they could make. The Dark horse pair going into this was Elisa, the wacky hippie who spit marks her fabric and Sweet P, the rocker designer who saw her pairing with Elisa as a kiss of death. But their final project came out really well and was one of the judges favorites.

    The contest was won hands down by Victorya and her partner Kevin. Their empire style dress with the cute plaid vest was obviously a favorite from the beginning and chosen by Parker to actually be sold underneath her line's name.

    The losing team at the somber and not very good designer Marion and his partner Stephen, who I can see staying around a few more episodes. Their pullover poncho style top and business attire skirt did not flow well as an ensemble, nor with the BITTEN collection.

    My favorite part of the episode was not only Parker's presence, but her humbleness when it came to the contestants. This lady is class all the way and has really brought herself to another level of fame. It was adorable how uncomfortable she was giving bad news to the designers and actual critique. I have to say this season's designers are really bringing it and its definitely a toss up who will be there till the end.

    I heart lists!

    With the holiday upon us, it seems that nothing of note will happen until next week. So while I get over my food coma and attempt to get ready to bro down with some friends tonight, I thought let's put together a list.

    As y'all known, each Friday is gonna be LIST MADNESS!!!! So let's get to the five songs that can't get out my head.

    From Nothing to Nowhere - PINBACK

    No Cars Go - ARCADE FIRE

    An End has a Start - The Editors

    Cold Hands - The Black Lips

    My Moon My Man - FEIST

    Wednesday, November 21, 2007


    So my puppy is closer to getting better, but definitely not there yet. The holiday will be taking most of my energy, especially since I am hosting my family for the first time - I know I am fucking crazy! As a vegetarian, its kind of fun though to have a reason why there is no turkey at the Thanksgiving table.

    So hopefully you enjoy your holiday and time with friends and we will get back to business on Friday! Let's get to today's news:

    Applegate takes it off for PETA. The star of "Samantha who?" is PETA's girl this season supporting their anti-fur campaign. Christina also tells the organization why she has been a proud vegtarian since she was 15 years old.

    BWE.TV discusses the best, yet pointless rivalries of TV history. My faves are Michael Scott vs Toby on "The Office" and Marcy and Al Bundy on "Married with Children".

    "The Bachelor" ironically remains one. I thought this guy was dumb as a box of rocks, but apparently I was wrong. I think he kind of wanted the chick he kicked off a few episodes again. (not that I watch that show).

    Dennis Quaid's newborn twins were poisoned at Cedars Sinai. The twins were given 1,000 times the dosage they were supposed to be of Heparin, a blood thinner. Both babies are reported to be in stable condition, but all this botched shit going on in hospitals nowadays is getting scary.

    Lohan is in 212 area code. This means my homegirl is celebrating the holiday tomorrow in my hometown, Merrick. Call a sister - We will hit up the Treethouse and you can drink some Shirley Temples.

    Just Call him Doctor Scumbag. Dr. Adams, whose botched operation killed Kanye West's mother Donda last week blames patients for poor recovery in PEOPLE magazine. Ugh this dude needs to join up with OJ and get into a Bronco and drive off a cliff.

    And finally in ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME WITH THIS SHIT NEWS, IN TOUCH is "reporting" or reciting PR from Scientology that Tom Cruise is NOT GAY. Ok seriously are we still talking about this? How many years, reports and gossip do I need to prove something? My LA friends have said that this is not only widely known in Hollywood, but the Church has gone out of its way for years to shush it up. I for one will not believe this dude is straight, but I do hope that one day he could be honest with himself and others.

    Monday, November 19, 2007


    Let's start off by apoogizing about the delays in posting. My life had gone mucho haywire last week with a sick dog and holiday madness. I see this week being quite as crazy, but I will definitely be doing my best to get the news out there for you folks. So let's get to it:

  • SNL is performed at the UCB Theater here in NYC. The cast and some crew members of SNL did a a full rendition of what would have been Saturday's show with Micheal Cera as the host at the UCB Theater. $20 bucks a pop had you sitting in 150 person theater watching new and classic sketches from the SNL crew and raised money for those writers laid off by NBC due to the strike. I for one WOULD HAVE LOVED to have been there. But apparently NBC is not the only one firing strikers.

  • Beowulf comes out on top of this weekend's box office draw. The animated tale, starring Angelina Jolie, Anthony Hopkins and directed by Robert Zemeckis pulled in about $28 million this weekend. The movie was shown in 3 styles, 3D, 3D Imax and normal formula. Almost half of it's money was made in the 3-D format. "Bee Movie" and "American Gangster" came in second and third, respectively.

  • And speaking of movies, Tom Cruise is only "playing" bald and fat. The actor has been reportedly at work on "Tropcial Thunder", which is being directed by Ben Stiller in Hawaii. The movie has had it blows with the departure of Owen Wilson after his suicide attempt and now apparently Cruise and Katie Holmes have roles in it. Hopefully this picture will deliver, but with all the setbacks you can never tell.

  • Bob Dylan wants to record with Jack White. The rock and folk icon is interested in White and others to help him out with a Hank Williams album he is currently working on. It must be nice to have Bob Dylan come and ask you for a favor.

  • Kanye West breaks down on stage. While performing in Paris, the hip hop star brokedown over the recent death of his mother. Our heart really goes out to him.

  • BLENDER interviews Amy Winehouse for their December issue. Throughout the interview, she nods off, says she is a heavy drinker, while denies alcoholism and basically proves the case to go to rehab. Oh and this video of her reportedly snorting coke in the midst of a performance doesn't help her case either.

    I hate to say this, but this girl has about 3 - 6 more months on this planet. She doesn't seem to want to get her act together at all.

  • And finally, Jonathan Rhys Meyers was arrested in an airport for drunkenness, Martha Stewart's mom has passed away, Julia Roberts is NOT handicapped and Nicole Richie has her baby shower - it's gonna be a boy!

    This will be the only post of the day I think as I have to care of one sick little puppy, but ENJOY!!!!!!

  • Tuesday, November 13, 2007


    So my little site freaked out today fro some of you, namely me and we are forced to post our DAILY ROUNDS quite late. Because of this, I wanted to bring the music news into the rounds. Sorry that I am forced to keep this short, but let's get to it:

  • Britney Spears failed court mandated drug test. Apparently it was meth, but her spokespeople are saying it could be a false positive cause of her asthma inhaler. Damn these chicks always relying on good ol' asthma to blame.

  • The doctor who opperated on Kanye's mom should have lost his license. According to many reports on TMZ, the doctor has been arrested for multiple DUIs, sued for malpractice and is an overall jerk! My heart goes out to Kanye.

  • For those of us who missed it, here is coverage from last week's MTVU Woodies 2007, which took place at the Roseland Ballroom. I wish MTV would care about new music ALL THE TIME as opposed to the fight betweenn LC and Heidi.

  • Entertainment Weekly discusses movies so bad they are good. And good thing, many of my favorites showed up on this, such as Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead, which is early 90's romantic/comedy/straight to video perfection.

  • Radiohead blames record label for them leaving and the new box set. Thom Yorke also says he would not rush to work with Sir Paul McCartney.

  • And in the "Does anyone care about this band anymore news?", Weezer's new album is completed and a release date is set.

  • Finally, A stagehand apparently overdosed at the Knitting Factory this weekend.

    Curb Your Enthusiasm - Kicking out the Jams

    Did Larry David listen to the critics this time around??? With the sixth season ending last night on Curb Your Enthusiasm, we saw that Larry David was able to live without Cheryl, his soon to be ex-wife (in real life, as well as the TV show). From him grabbing the mike at a Bat Mitzvah to discount a gerbil rumor to stealing a phone number from a doctor's sign in list, David took his most lovable, while remaining unlikable character, to new heights. But with all the chatter about Vivica A. Fox's great job this season so far, did Larry see a great opportunity to come back? The season endedwith Larry marrying his Hurricane victim housemate and making her family his. The last two minutes of "Curb" had us watch Larry and his new family at soccer games, fighting in the car and Lorretta (Fox) fighting with the ever present and always hostile Susie.

    Now the genius of this plot twist is so multi-layer, its pure Larry David. First, Cheryl is the one who brought them together and second, Fox is the only woman who could probably easily take on Larry just as much as Susie does. What I find the best part of this ending is that if Larry does decide to continue the program for another two years, he can now come back with a black wife and family, opening the flood doors for indecent and non pc behavior the world has never seen. This truly couldn't have been a better end to a show or an even better beginning for the more twisted places David is just WAITING to take us to. Bravo Mr. David, as always, you make it very worthwhile to be a fan!


    Oh let's just get to it today:

  • Norman Mailer passed away this weekend. The Pulitzer prize winning author will be remembered within various circles as a strong headed and all around interesting fellow, who brought about questions not only about his writing, but his private life as well.

  • Kate Hudson and Heath Ledger were caught making out. Man, who hasn't this chick reportedly banged in the past few months. Watch out, I think that Zach kid from the Disney movie is next.

  • Sarah Michelle Gellar sluts it up for the "new" MAXIM. Ugh I was bored enough by this chick already, but sweetie its too late to go the "sexy" route. I always feel these men's magazines are saved for women who don't have the best current careers,

  • Kanye West's mother died over the weekend. The 58 year old mother of the famous pop singer passed away, apparently from a faulty plastic surgery operation. Sources are saying that they are still determining the exact cause.

  • While the WGA strike continues for it's second week, Ellen DeGeneres is being attacked by the union for continuing to work on her daytime talk show. In other strike news, the Stagehands Union in New York has been on strike now for three days causing the lights out on many major Broadway shows.

  • Aaarrrggghhh..Upgrade annoying!

    So upgrading your blog by yourself is always an interesting project. Does this look better? Will this make the readers more interested in coming back? Can I update this format on my own? Will my new puppy ever stop nibbling on my laptop?

    I have made the move to a three column format, which I thought would provide me with more usable space, but it really just detracts from the content - which is always more important - so we are most likely going back to a two column blogosphere. While I continue to stress out over my lil' ol' blog here, I was wondering, what you the readers are most interested in?

    With our upgrade, new features are coming your way and daily themes will be added to the DAILY ROUNDS and Gossip content.

    Mondays will be bringing us the latest news on Movies. We will provide the readers with the Box Office figures from the weekend, a review or two, as well as some casting news.

    Tuesdays will have us visiting the music world with the newest releases, reviews, upcoming concerts and industry gossip.

    On Wednesdays, we will visit some blasts from the pasts in our "Where are they now?" segments. We will dig deep into Hollywood's past and find out what the leading ladies and men from the 80's and 90's are doing now to pay the bills. Hopefully, we will even be getting to interview these stars one on one.

    Thursday will have my "Project Runway" review and our countdown on who's in and who's out!! The Spielster will be running a contest after the first week and if you guess correctly who will be in the FINAL THREE, you will be receiving some excellent goodies!!! We will also be discussing the ins and outs out the TV world.

    Friday will be our catch up/round up with the gossip and content of the week. We will also resume our picks for the weekend!

    Saturday and Sunday will be for Trailers, Must Have Lists, Gift Guides and Holiday Survival tips until January.

    As always, our DAILY ROUNDS will feature a peek in on my everyday life, local news and some puppy training news.

    Other additions will be sprouting up over the next few weeks and I can't wait for it all to come together. So while we are upgrading, lets get to the DAILY ROUNDS and discuss our movie news later today. We are also welcoming subscriptions through Feedburner and Technorati and those subscription buttons all over this dang site!!!!

    Any suggestions or help with content would be much appreciated and should be forwarded to:

    No time for idle chit chat….the WGA strike continues and has caused most of daily and late night programming to go into repeats, but in good news could bring the last season of “Scrubs” to an even quicker ending. Well that’s a positive right? So let’s get to it….

  • Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton back the Writers strike. Oh you Dems, always helping out those unions. Jay Leno and Julia Louis-Dreyfus have been supporting the strike along the picket lines in Los Angeles and Tina Fey found herself toting a sign along with other writers outside Rockefeller Center yesterday and Silvercup Studios this morning. Fey is part of the many writers/actors group that could have the biggest effect on getting a proper contract for the writers. When your on air talent, like stars of “30 Rock” and “The Office” are also head writers, you can’t allow them to strike for too long. The last WGS strike back in the 80’s lasted 22 weeks, so hopefully we can get some negotiations soon! I can’t watch that many reality programs!!!!

  • Speaking of quality TV, one of my favorite shows is coming back. "Weeds" gets picked up for a fourth season. Its really refreshing to see a dramedy which definitely covers new territory do so well with the viewers. This is what I love about subscription cable programs, if it does well with the viewers, the show gets to flourish. I am also excited that "Californcation" will also be returning to Showtime nest year, since the duo works so well together on Monday nights. Its also great to see two wonderful actors, who get better looking each year, find a project that works for them.

  • Is MSNBC learning that Fox News’ formula actually works? Amidst rumors that the network is turning “left”, it is confirmed that Rosie O'Donnell will have her own talk show on MSNBC. The show is supposedly part politics and very much like Larry King Live on CNN, as well as during the 9PM timeslot shared by Mr. King and Hannity & Colmes. Hmm, sounds like great timing since Hannity lost any sort of relevance he had back in 2003 and King can't even remember the most famous guest's credentials.

  • Owen Wilson ignored a hot blond, fat girls are complaining about Star Jones and Stella McCartney just released a one legged pendant from her new jewelry collection.

  • And in gross news, Crazy Cabbie, the gross dj on KRock will release a porn movie made in Howard Stern’s studio, after hours and without his permission. Apparently, the movie’s stars, which include Ron Jeremy, utilize much of Stern’s recording equipment as “toys”. Yecch!!!!!!!! Just hearing Crazy Cabbie, Ron Jeremy and porn in one sentence makes my skin crawl.

  • Myspace: always happy to let the celebutards express their feelings. Lindsay Lohan’s newest boyfriend, Riley Giles, is “covertly” hating on her mom by posting the least anonymous rants/advice on his Myspace page. As predicted, Dina Lohan played with fire way too much and should be losing her own daughter aas a client within the next three months I predict. Hey, I more then welcome to step in and help this girl out with her career when she comes to my neck of the woods in December!!!! Call me!!!

  • And finally in the no shit news of the day, Christina Aguilera finally admits she is pregnant. Umm, unless she got paid a nice wad of cash to tell it to British Glamour, why the hold up? I know that in the Jewish faith you need to wait past the first trimester, but I thought this kid was two seconds away from crowning. Sweetie, you can’t hide a baby the same way you hide breast implants. It don’t work.

    Well, tune in later today for some music news……ENJOY!!!!

    Nip/Tuck brought it back this season....

    Ok so today’s posts were cut short due to:
    -boring things happening
    -mice running amuck through my house
    -mere excitement of the “Twin Peaks” Box Set that awaits my return to my home
    -and my concentration on this week’s Nip/Tuck Episode

    So after last season, with dwarf romeos, lobster handed babies and women too cookey for Scientology, I thought for sure Nip/Tuck lost me as a viewer. But this season came back with a vengeance with its season premiere this past Tuesday. The necessary move to Los Angeles for these image hungry and mentally broken down plastic surgeons is not only perfect, but it allows the city to become a character as well, which unfortunately doesn’t happen when your show is based in Miami.

    With the introduction of new characters, the breakdown of all artificial relationship and the continued success at the only working partnership these two have, each other, it gives the cast, the writers and the show a breath of fresh air and a whole new set of circumstances to occur. I am in love with the idea of Christian Troy (Julian McMahon) being the low one on the totem pole this time around and having Sean McNamara(Dylan Walsh) the lead guy once again. The breaking of the fourth wall that is going to go on this season, them being consultants on a Nip/Tuck style show, a possible reality program and being successful bachelors in a city that foams at the mouth for “personalities” will make me easily forgive all of Nip/Tuck’s previous crimes. The addition of Bradley Cooper, as his usually over brazen and self unaware ego maniac is a much welcome fixture and his affect on Christian will be interesting to watch. The other new characters, Lauren Hutton as a tough publicist and Oliver Platt as a meek tv show producer, will flesh out a much needed addition to this “family”. I am interested in the resurgence of Julia (Joely Richardson) and the most likely return of Matt (John Hensley), the troubled son and his nutty Scientologist wife, Kimber (Kelly Carlson), and ex-lover of all three lead men. I mean hell this ain’t a show in LA if there is not one XENU follower.

    So if you like the original flair of “Entourage” and like intelligently bizarre adult programming, make sure to tune into the fifth season of Nip/Tuck.

    Thursday, November 1, 2007


    Let’s just start off with Halloween being pretty awesome this year.

    I dressed up as Tippi Hedren from Hitchcock's The Birds, pictures to follow. While hoping around the city with my zombie friends and I saw some great costumes out there. The parade was a bust, since it was nearly impossible to get to 6th Avenue after 8 pm, but there was a pseudo parade of people trying to get into the area on 5th Avenue, so that was nice. After that we did some party hopping, from Chinatown to Williamsburg and I had a great costume sighting at Galapagos. As I was cutting a rug to sounds of New Order and Kriss Kross (don’t ask!) I ran into David Cross dressed as his incredibly funny character Tobias Funke from Arrest Development. He was covered in the Blue Man Group paint and his omni present never nude cut off denim shorts. He had mentioned during his set on Saturday at Irving Plaza that he would be dressing up as Tobias, but I didn’t believe it, that is until I saw it with my own eyes. He was very gracious when I began chatting him up about how awesome it was that he actually pulled off the costume and he said he was a man of his word. We parted ways and I continued to sweat it up on the dance floor. Hopefully all of you enjoyed your Halloween just as much and I can’t wait till next year!!!

    So let’s get to the news:

  • NBC has decided to scrap the Heroes spinoff, Heroes:Origins, which was set to premiere this Spring. No specifics were given for the change, but we are sure the unimpressive ratings this season and looming writing strike did not help anything.

  • Meryl Streep is set to play Julia Child in the upcoming "Julie & Julia”, adapted and directed by Nora Ephron. Amy Adams is also set to star as Julie, a wannabe master chef following Ms. Child. Production is set to begin in late 2008.

  • A&E stops Dog the Bounty Hunter production after National Enquirer released tape of Dog repeatedly using the N word to describe a black woman who was dating his son. While he has apologized for his insensitivity, A&E is still worried about the outcome of this huge mistake.

  • Broken Lizard scheduled to begin production on The Slammin' Salmon. The comedy troop, who brought you Beerfest and Super Troopers, will beginning filming in 2008 on the comedy set around a former heavyweight champ who is now a restaurant owner. The story has the all too funny waitstaff pitted against each other, similar to Glengarry Glen Ross. Kevin Hefferman will take directorial duty from Jay Chandrasekhar for this pic. They also have another full length in the works with Warner Brothers.

  • Don Vito, Bam Margera’s uncle, was convicted of two counts of sexual assault yesterday. Vito then collapsed within the courtroom after the verdict was read. Sentencing is set for later this year.

  • Justice is served to the bigot Rev. Fred Phelps. Not sure how many of you out there are aware of the moron Fred Phelps who runs a small Baptist based church in Kansas, which celebrates hate and bigotry. He has received notoriety by his congregations’ protests of the funerals of Iraq War soldiers, with such disgusting signs as “God Hates America” and “God Hates Fags”. The bigots believe it is the fault of the gays that these soldiers die, since they are fighting for the freedom to “be gay”. I guess he forgot they were also fighting for the 1st Amendment, anyways, one soldier’s father, Albert Snyder, sued the church after they protested the funeral of his son, Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder. The family was awarded an $11 million judgment after the jury deemed the church was liable for invasion of privacy and intent to inflict emotional distress. I hope these assholes can’t pay and are forced into jail!!!!

  • And in funnier legal news, Da Brat arrested after attacking a waitress in Atlanta. The rapper allegedly assaulted a waitress at Studio 72, Jermaine Dupri's club, with a rum bottle to the face. This is the third incident in the past few years that has had Da Brat attacking a woman. Maybe the waitress wasn’t digging her hitting on her…just a thought.

  • In “Can America get any dumber news?” Britney's new album is set to hit the charts at Number 1! The pop tart apparently can do no wrong and even while going through a mega meltdown can still find a way to the top. She is like fucking Teflon!

  • But in better and more respectable music news, the adorable Carrie Underwood just broke her own record with her Number one debuting sophomore album, The album sold more then 500,000 units its first week, which makes Underwood the most successful American Idol on the charts. I was pretty indifferent about this chick until I checked out her latest interview with Entertainment Weekly. She discussed what its like to actually be a celebrity and keep her life private, how it feels to not be accepted in the Country world and what she sees for her future. She seems like a wonderful role model who does what she loves and doesn’t allow the haters to break her down. I hope this girl is just at the beginning of a very long career.

    Hopefully I can get around to the review of the “Comedians of Comedy” and the sneak peek into the Comedy Festival that is headed out way next week!!!!!!!! ENJOY THE DAY!!!!
