?Of The Day

h1 Monday, July 31st, 2006
  • DISAPPEARING ATHLETE: Nope, not A-Rod in the clutch- it’s Anna Kournikova. At least, what’s left of her. (The Big Lead via Deadspin)
  • FAR FROM EXCITING LIST: The VMA nominees were announced today. Quick reminder, the V stands for ‘Video’ as in Music Video. (Celebrity Terrorist)
  • ASTUTE OBSERVATION: Mary-Kate Olsen is 40 years away from being Shirley Maclaine. If she gets there. (Cityrag)
  • STILL GAY: Lance Bass doesn’t want you to forget he came out. If that means he’ll have to dump his bf to stay relevant, he’ll do it damnit. (Hollywood Rag)
  • CONFLICTING EMOTIONS: Girls watching porn- pretty hot. Tori Spelling watching porn? Um… pass. (D-Listed)

PROPPED: Don?t Mess With Exes

h1 Monday, July 31st, 2006

Thanks to reader urbanoms for dropping this hilariously disturbing video (language slightly NSFW) about the practical dangers of mistreating your lady. After watching the jilted girlfriend’s rampage on her ex-lover’s belongings and feeling thankful for the well-being of your own laptop, it might be a good time to pick up the phone and tell your sweetheart just how much you love her. It would also be a good idea to drop us some more of these sweet links lest we start feeling like you don’t love us anymore, either. We know where you live.
UPDATE: The video is apparently a part of some elaborite viral marketing campaign, into whose hand we so easily played. It’s still amusing I guess, but whatever happened to the good old days when ads were all just clever slogans and celebrities pimping crappy products? How did we ever go from ‘Mikey Likes It’ to smashing a perfectly good laptop in the middle of a crowded street? And if we can’t trust the authenticity of things we find on the Internet, just what can we trust?

LISTEN UP: A Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever

h1 Monday, July 31st, 2006
  • Everybody loves the song “Roscoe” by Midlake, but why stop there? Head over to Get Big, Little Kid and check out a couple more tracks from this month’s big buzz band.
  • Disco-Not-Disco has a great mix posted today with tracks by Pharrell, The New Pornographers, The Streets and more. Check it out.
  • Exitfare posted a Ted Leo demo to get you excited about his next album. I’m already there.
  • Another Form of Relief has mp3’s by The Pipettes, Say Hi To Your Mom and Destroyer. Definitely worth downloading.
  • And finally, You Ain’t No Picasso has a few tracks by Man Man, a band that (judging by the photographs), is completely insane. Enjoy.

While You Were Busy Blaming Jews for the American Revolution?

h1 Monday, July 31st, 2006


  • Pamela Anderson calls her weekend wedding to Kid Rockthe most romantic wedding of all-time.” Stay tuned for the video footage on Cinemax tonight at around 1 a.m.
  • Fire broke out on the set of the new James Bond thriller Casino Royale. While the cause is still unknown, authorities are leaning towards the fire in Daniel Craig’s trousers.
  • Cameron Diaz admits that she enjoys playing her animated character Fiona in the Shrek films, because it doesn’t matter how bad her skin gets or how skinny she is. So that explains why Justin Timberlake masturbates to Looney Tunes.
  • The press interviews Brad Pitt’s grandmother, who reveals that the star won’t marry until he is over his divorce of ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. She also reveals that Brad hates the Starlight mints she steals from her pinochle night, and that even the great-grandmothers of saviors suffer from incontinence.
  • Eddie Van Halen will be composing the score for a new adult film (that’s porno, not Holocaust drama) called Sacred Sin. Not reported but assumed, David Lee Roth dusts off his “bomp-a-chick-a-wow” machine and prays for his own future.

It?s July 26th; What?s up?

h1 Wednesday, July 26th, 2006

Larry_The_Cable_Guy_Comedy.jpgTonight we bid adieu to one of the most influential shows of our generation. Actually, let me rephrase that- THE most influential show of our generation. A show that has made us laugh, made us cry, and touched us in ways we never dreamt imaginable. Tonight, when the final episode comes to a close and the credits begin to roll down the screen, a part of each and every one of us will die. We’ll never be the same. And we’re going to have to learn to live with that… one day at a time.

So goodbye, Blue Collar TV. We shall never forget you.

What are YOU watching tonight? Vote now.

ICYMI: Spade?s All Showbiz, Very Little Show

h1 Wednesday, July 5th, 2006

This was bound to happen. Once David Spade started showing up in tabloids dating Heather Locklear you knew his patented celebrity snarkness was in danger. How could he dig on the tabloids and make fun of celebrities when he, himself, was being considered a celebrity? The whole foundation of The Showbiz Show was in danger… and judging by this clip from the season finale, it looks like it came a-crumbling-down. Here’s David participating in an American Idol bit with Anthony Kiedis and Kellie Pickler. It’s so lame it makes you wonder what David Spade would say about it if, you know, he wasn’t all Hollywood now. *Sigh*
