Sweet (in)


We are saddened to hear about former Full House-mate Jodie Sweetin’s battle with Crystal Meth (as reported by the always reputable Globe Magazine).

But lets not harp on the bad, lets instead remember all the good times. And who better to reminisce than members of the Fans of Jodie Sweetin Yahoo Group?

Says supergirl4513: >what is your favorite funny thing jodie has said on
> "full house" to kimmy gibbler (andrea barber)? mine is
> when stephanie and gia were pretending to be 16 years
> old and stephanie promised kimmy she wouldn’t make any
> crack at her for a whole week if she kept quiet that
> she was 13. and then she told kimmy, "big bird called.
> he wants his legs back." thats funny.

Anyone else want to share?

There are some nice shots of Jack Black at I Watch Stuff! Here’s the set-up: "These are newish images from the comedy Nacho Libre, written and directed by Jared Hess of Napoleon Dynamite fame. If you think that’s a shirtless Jack Black playing a Mexican wrestler, you’re spot on." Delicious.


BWE Checks Out What’s Big In: JAPAN


Meet Anpaman: a crime fighting cartoon superhero made entirely of sweet red bean paste.    Strengths: He can fly, kick and punch. Plus his head is made of bread so he can always bake himself a new one as needed.  Arch Nemesis: Baikinman aka Bacteria Man. He wants to destroy Anpaman with powerful kitchen mold. Other super hero sidekicks include : Tendonman (his head is a donburi rice bowl with shrimp tempura poking out of the top) and Tenmusu-chan (her head is a rice ball with shrimp tempura). With a weekly cartoon show and hoards of merchandise, Japanese kids can’t seem to get enough of Anpaman and his legion of savory superheroes.

To sum up: things that aren’t American are really weird.

Okay, so neither have these have actually been confirmed or anything, but I know which one I’m rooting for to be real.

Which concert would you rather see, the one on the left or the one on the right? Vote now!


More Bengay, STAT!


What you’re looking at is one of the first official images released from Sony’s forthcoming Rocky VI.  That’s right, 50 year-old Sylvester Stallone is pulling the trunks back on for a big screen boxing battle with the most fearsome opponent he’s ever faced: his own irrelevancy. 

Find out more at (I can’t believe I’m actually about to type this) Rocky Balboa’s blog.

And be on the lookout for Rambo IV!

You think that Rambo thing is a joke, don’t you?  Then click the link, I dare you.  Wait, get a drink first.  Okay, now click. 

Yeah, I know…


Are Nannies Having The Best Week Ever?


First, Tom Cruise’s former nanny debuts her tell-all expose, "You’ll Never Nanny In This Town Again," which reveals her former boss’s CIA-worthy contractual demands.

Then Jude and Sienna reportedly split, making it possible for nanny Daisy Wright to enjoy more passionless, needy sex with the British dandy. And if that weren’t enough,  Wright may even get to relish in bed while Jude takes an immediate post-sex self-disgust shower.

Finally, Nanny McPhee, a British romp about a Nanny that changes one lucky family’s lives, premieres in theaters this week, to the delight of every ruddy-cheeked orphan from Londontown with narry a tuppence to his name.  Most American kids, however, don’t give a s***.


What Is Reebok Up To?


Maggie Gyllenhaal is the next Christina Ricci: She’s doing ads for Reebok. According to a "spokesperson," Gyllenhaal is "a great representative for our brand, which is about promoting individual style." This is the first time I can remember a sneaker company trying to confuse people into buying their shoes.


Isn’t life grand?


Life is just a little more comfortable for that charming clan of i-pod sporting vespa owners. Upon hearing that the 100-strong group, was moderatley inconvenienced when shuffling from french bistro to member’s only spa, a  brand called Scooterworks  created a device that allows scooter owners to charge and listen to their i-pods while breezing through their utopian city of choice.
