…Of The Day

Nice to meet you!

Hello, everyone! My name’s Sarah Walker. I’m the new part time blogger here! So that means that if we were to meet at a party and you asked me what I did, I’d say, “I’m a part time blogger.” Then I’d slowly raise a revolver to my temple and you’d half heartedly be like, “No…stop.” That being said, I am SUPER psyched to be here! For realzies.

Some things about me: I really like, nay, love the movie Clue, especially this part:

My favorite food is cake.

I suffer from extreme second hand embarrassment, in that I feel other people’s embarrassment as acutely as if it were my own. This means that I find reality television extremely hard to watch. This affliction is maybe not ideal for a part time blogger, but that’s just my cross to bear.

That’s pretty much it.

See you sporadically for two days a week! Hooray!

While You Were Preparing To Throw Kids Out Of The Way For Your Up Seat

Pattinson Noshirt

  • Robert Pattinson filmed a shirtless scene for the new Twilight movie yesterday. In another twist, vampires are in the movie.
  • Chris Pine will present an award with Kiefer Sutherland at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday. Kiefer Sutherland will probably not headbutt him. Seriously, he probably won’t. It’d be a really bad idea if he did. What?
  • Fox responded to the claim that the American Idol finale voting was fixed, saying “We promise, the final vote was the ONE thing we didn’t obviously control.”
  • Courtney Love apparently owes American Express $352,000. They might have a hard time taking the issue to court, though, with California’s well-known “Only F***ing Idiots Would Ever Trust Courtney Love With A Credit Card” Law.
  • And finally, a nice gallery of flying dogs.

…OF THE DAY

Just a reminder, our Of The Day link roundup has moved to the mid-afternoon, and posts will continue as normal above it. So if you see Of The Day, don’t close your browser immediately, destroy your computer, then pee on the smoking remains, as I imagine you used to do when our regular posting days ended. Enjoy.

Russell

  • INSIDE OF YOU: Russell Brand has been sleeping with Holly Madison, reports Inevitable Penetrations Quarterly. (Sun UK)

  • AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY IMPOSSIBLE: Terry Gilliam will re-attempt a Don Quixote movie after failing to do one nine years ago and releasing a documentary about his failure. No word on whether or not Timothy “Grizzly Man” Treadwell will give bear-watching another crack. (Variety)
  • HEALTHIER THAN DOMINO’S BREAD BOWLS: Paula Deen’s ButterWater surprisingly isn’t even one of her more fattening foods. It’s not even one of her more fattening flavored waters. (Youtube)
  • SHARKS N BARKS: A sea lion escaped from an aquarium shark tank unscathed, and apparently without any adorable pictures of the two of them hanging out either. Lame. (Post-Gazette)
  • LIZ’S CHOICE: Choosing between The Office and 30 Rock is like choosing between your children, if you actually didn’t have a clear favorite child. (X Versus Y)

…OF THE DAY

Breaking with literally centuries of BWE.tv tradition, we will now be doing our evening “…OF THE DAY” link roundup in the mid-afternoon, and continue normal posting for the rest of the day. The reason for the change? So that on our daily BWE party invitations, we can say that this party goes from “9:30 til ??????”. Enjoy!

Obama Trek

  • WILLED INTO EXISTENCE: Barack Obama exists. Star Trek just came out. It will surprise you greatly to learn that the internet is full of ‘Barack Obama Photoshopped into Star Trek‘ pics. (Urlesque)
  • NAUGHTO-EROTIC: Craigslist is dropping its controversial “Erotic Services” section. No word on what will happen to “Erotic Apartments,” “Erotic Furniture,” or “Erotic Sex Meetups.” (Consumerist)
  • JON TOGETHER: 75% of People readers think that Jon and Kate should stay together. Guess the kids learned how to vote in internet polls. (People)
  • BREAKING NEWS: This local news affiliate really pulls a hard-hitting piece of journalism about how Domino’s bread bowls are made and how delicious they are. Tune in tomorrow for their exclusive report on zooming into GE appliance logos. (Videogum)

  • DYNASTY: Carrie Prejean is keeping her crown as Miss California, despite having appeared in numerous topless photos, the film Boobarama, and being topless during the majority of the Miss U.S.A. pageant. (Wonderwall)
  • HEADLINE: “Parasitic Flies Turn Fire Ants Into Zombies.” Sam Raimi is attached to direct. (Yahoo!)
  • COOL DAD: I like Brian Williams, and he seems to have a genuine, vested interest in new music, but there’s just something off about hearing a rock band interviewed in a powerful, hard-hitting journalist cadence. (Stereogum)
  • CATCHY SLOGAN: The NBA Playoffs: Where Amazing Happens, and by “Amazing” we mean… lots of different things… (Youtube)
  • PITY THE MANUFACTURER: This list of the 10 Most Pitiful Pieces Of Mr. T Memorabilia is perhaps the most accurately-titled list I’ve ever come across on the internet. Although Rocky III is a surprise omission. (Topless Robot, via Gorillamask)

…OF THE DAY

Phelps

  • MORE LIKE OLDS OF THE WORLD: The UK’s News Of The World arrives a little late to the BWE scoop, but apparently, Michael Phelps is, in fact, a douche. (Deadspin)
  • A TIME TO BUTT: New versions of the Kiefer Sutherland headbutting story keep coming up. Maybe their publicists are attempting to spin things, or maybe…this is like the movie Rashomon but with more alcoholic headbutting? (Socialite Life)
  • THERE WILL BE BLOOD: Maya Rudolph and Paul Thomas Anderson are expecting their second child together. If I know P.T.A., I think we can expect about another fifteen before this one’s over. (People)

  • RUN-BY FRUITING: Dude, it took you five decades to grow a pair and fess up about that tomato? You’re dead to me. (Holy Taco)
  • NEW IDEA: The Soup is planning to air an internet-themed spinoff called “Web Soup” on G4. A web version of a pop culture roundup show? Hahaha…Good luck with that! (Variety)

  • US WEEKLY ’88: “Julia Roberts Shows Off Bikini Body” sounds like the hottest thing on the internet, period. (Us Magazine)
  • SINGLED OUT II:Jenny McCarthy is getting her own talk show. Hopefully it’ll be more “weirdly rational ex-model” and less “here’s what oral sex with Jim Carrey is like”. (WWTDD)
  • ACTRESS KIND OF: Megan Fox’s job is to show up in magazines and things, look hot, and have a Transformers movie due out vaguely soon. I have no problems with this. (Socialite Life)

  • DAAAAAAD: Viacom Chairman Sumner Redstone says that Leno’s new 10:00 show “doesn’t stand a chance” because CSI will “beat the hell out of him.” He then whipped out a shiv and challenged all of ABC and FOX to a rumble before being calmed down by his associates. (Hollywood Reporter)

  • KNOWLEDGE WILL BE ROGER’S TREASURE: Robert Zemeckis says he’s thinking about doing a Roger Rabbit sequel. In accordance with current Zemeckis policy, in the sequel, the humans would be motion-capture CGI’d and Roger Rabbit would be even more motion-capture CGI’d. (MTV Movies Blog)
  • TWITTERER: Real-Life Twitter. Aka, yelling sentences. (Collegehumor)
  • OH INTERNET: And finally, if you haven’t seen the Awkward Boners Blog yet, here it is. It’s only semi-NSFW, but it is a blog devoted to awkward boners, so it’s really your call, I don’t know if you work at a boner factory. (Awkward Boners)

…OF THE DAY

Blockbuster Sign

  • EVEN WE USE NETFLIX: Hey, if you still want to drive to a video store, hand over your laminated card, then exchange monetary notes for a physical disc of a movie that you can then drive home and watch before driving back to the store again to return it, you’re in luck, because they’re still in business for an hour a day. (Consumerist)
  • AMERICAN IDLE: Fox will not air President Obama’s speech Wednesday night for fear that it might run long and cut into the American Idol results show. Which means we’ll only have about seven networks to play the “Which Feed Is Farthest Ahead And Loudest? President-speech game. (Warming Glow)
  • I DIDN’T MEAN THAT O.J.:Linda Hogan is requesting a much bigger sum of money from Hulk after his interesting “I understand O.J. speech.” She’s apparently requesting exactly the cost of having a giant knife-resistant protective bubble around herself. (Dlisted)
  • NAKED COWBOYS: Here’s a video of Matt & Kim running around Times Square naked. I hope this is a music video and not some truly unfortunate Dateline episode. (The Fab Life)
  • CAR WARS: Here’s a list of the 12 Most Famous Cars of All Time. Wait, that doesn’t sound very internetty — are you sure you don’t mean, The 12 Most Famous Cars of All Time Driven By Alf? (Wonderwall)
