This is like the beginning of a Mythbusters experiment where they have to test the whole cast’s tolerance to pain by seeing how long each of them can keep their arm in ice water. But instead of testing pain tolerance, we’re testing tolerance for watching a British girl yell curse words on a train. And instead of putting arms in ice water, we’re watching a British girl yell curse words on a train. We’ll all write down the time we reached in the video before stopping it so we can establish our personal baselines. Sound good? Good. Science is fun!
I made it to 1:10, took a small break, watched a little Food Network, then went back and finished the whole thing. How’d you guys do?
While we’re 99.9999% sure this will never happen, it makes us wonder what role Lohan could possibly play. Does anyone with more Superman knowledge than we have care to venture a guess? Her love of leggings make us think she’d be a shoo-in for Supergirl.
In case you’ve ever wondered what’s on Nick Cannon‘s airport checklist, we can tell you right now. Vuitton luggage? Check. Neck pillow? Check. Layers of clothing in case of cool cabin air? Check. Four leaf clover underpants? You bet.
Cannon showed off his skivvies as he was going through security at LAX and to be honest, we always did figure him one for clever underpinnings. Get a close-up look below.
Here’s a Jeep parked alongside Central Park North in Manhattan. As a New York resident who kept a car here for three years, my first reaction upon seeing this wasn’t “What was this a-hole thinking?”, but rather, “You’re my new parking and life hero”:
So who actually parked diagonally upwards on the pile of snow? Not to profile, but I have a sneaking suspicion that THE GUTE had something to do with this…

Colin Firth of the sexy open shirt may be a shoo-in for Best Actor at the Oscars this year, but you wouldn’t know it from all the events he attended Monday. Following the traditional Oscar Nominees Luncheon, Firth skipped off to the AARP’s 10th Annual Movies For Grown Ups Awards with his The King’s Speech co-stars and crew. And if that wasn’t enough handshakes for one day, Audi threw a party for the film at the Chateau Marmont, attended by everyone from Mick Jagger and Orlando Bloom to Bridget Jones herself, Renee Zellweger. Why all the hobnobbing when he’s already won just about every trophy leading up to the big event? Because the Weinstein Company thinks they can do even better than Best Actor.
Though The Social Network has long been considered the front-runner for Best Picture, The King’s Speech is now considered the most likely dark horse candidate to steal the prize. Weinstein Company head Harvey Weinstein, a notorious Oscar angler who managed to push Shakespeare In Love past Saving Private Ryan in the ’90s, and he’s basically making the same campaign for The King’s Speech, pushing it as a family-friendly alternative to an ugly bit of zeitgeist—movies about the mean young pricks behind Facebook won’t really fly with the AARP crowd. Do you think they’ve got a shot or will they have to settle for Colin’s wall of Best Actor nods?
Before celebs can scoop up their Academy Awards later this month, first—if they want a better of shot of winning—they have to attend the show’s nominees luncheon. This year was no different, with potential “best” actors, actresses, supporting actors and supporting actresses all posing under a giant Oscar that stared down upon them like some ancient god. Natalie Portman, showing her trademark tact, didn’t highlight her baby bump, preferring to keep it hidden under a blue sash. But if we had to give anyone at yesterday’s function a trophy, it would be Mark Wahlberg for Trooper Of The Year, showing up as one of The Fighter‘s producers, despite being the only major cast member of The Fighter not to get an acting nomination, he still showed up, bas one of the film’s producers. He also served as a stand-in for the absent likely Supporting Actor winner Christian Bale. Can’t let Avengers Mark “Hulk” Ruffalo and Jeremy “Hawkeye” Renner steal the trophy out from under Batman!
If you aren’t gonna dance at a Prince concert, you might as well stay home. The legendary pop star had a special visitor during his “Welcome 2 America” show at Madison Square Garden last night, with Kim Kardashian (out with boyfriend Kris Humphries) wiggling her way on stage during the traditional “pull women up and dance with them” portion of his set. Unfortunately, whether due to shyness or her tight outfit, Kim seemed unwilling to bust a movie with The Purple One, who quickly ordered that she “get off the stage.” “I was so nervous I froze when Prince touched me,” Kim tweeted mid-show, before Prince kindly gave her a second chance. “Went up on stage AGAIN! This time I redeemed myself! We all danced while Prince played the piano! Wow! What a night!” And we’re supposed to believe she’s going to be a pop star now?
Get a closer look at Kim’s eye-catching outfit in the gallery below. Can’t blame the guy for giving her a shot!
We’ve heard a lot about the case against Dr. Conrad Murray—that he was a money-hungry drug pusher more than a concerned doctor—but TMZ has shined some light on how Murray will respond to charges that he provided Michael with hospital-strength anesthetics and waited a half hour to call paramedics after finding the body. Possibly dropping Murray’s “soda defense”, since prosecutors will argue it doesn’t matter whether Jackson administered the Propofol himself or not, it looks like Murray’s team will argue Jackson was in failing health due to the intense rehearsals for This Is It. It’s as smart a move as the doctor could make—admit he was wrong to supply the drugs but get off on being responsible for his death—but it seems like unlike the court of public opinion will buy it. Do you?
When I first heard that Dana Carvey was going to be hosting an episode of Saturday Night Live — in the year 2011 (!!!), no less! — I immediately began concocting a list of excuses that could get me out of watching the episode. After all, in the 17 years or so since Carvey left the hallowed halls of Studio 8H, he had seemingly morphed from one of the greatest sketch performers of all-time to battling Robin Williams for the title of World’s Most Annoying Talk Show Guest™. Sadly for me, the best excuse I could come up with was “The dog ate my iPad,” an excuse I realized wouldn’t really hold water due to the fact that I don’t actually own an iPad. So somewhat begrudgingly, I flipped on the telly on Sunday morning and fired up my DVR.
As I sat down on my couch, fired up the coffee machine and popped a couple of Advil, who did I see on my screen? Why, that’s Wayne Campbell and Garth Algar, quite possibly the most iconic duo in Saturday Night Live history! Even better, the two were instantly in sync and appeared as if they hadn’t missed a beat since the last time they appeared on the show way back on November 20, 1993. Much to his credit, Carvey was able to keep that momentum and spirit cruising through the entire 90 minute show, revisiting both old characters (Regis, The Church Lady, Mickey Rooney) AND launching some highly likable new ones (specifically, one half of the eighties-tastic musical duo, The Fingerlings). Call me a sucker for nostalgia if you must, but this episode was one of my favorites in a long, long time.
Earlier today, I posted about the Homeaway.com Super Bowl commercial that featured a baby being catapulted against a window and then sliding down that window cartoon style. Shortly after that, I discovered that you can go to the Homeaway.com website and insert whatever face you went to be window smushed.
I now present to you GIFs of five people who are more deserving of being face smushed than a baby or even a test baby (in the commercial, they say the smushed baby is a “test baby.” Okay.) SPOILER ALERT: Two of these people are in the Black Eyed Peas.
Click on the images to make the GIFs play.
