When you’re little, talented, ambiguous and purple, people can’t just ASSUME you’re going to show up every time they want to hand you an award. There’s a good chance you’ll be too busy… or too purple… to make an appearance. It’s an occupational hazard. So don’t blame Prince for standing up the the folks at the Golden Globes (and Justin Timberlake) last night. He was just too busy being purple somewhere else. And that ain’t easy.
Nice save JT! Do you think this was the best moment of the night? If not– what was?
I stopped playing with dolls when I was a little kid (after my mom informed me that Barbie doesn’t like to be touched “there”), so I don’t get pumped up about action figures all too often. But when Todd McFarlane of McFarlane toys declares “Jack Bauer is our Batman” and announces he’ll be producing a Jack Bauer doll by August, who doesn’t get excited?
The action figure will showcase the character in a bulletproof vest with his gun raised and will sell for $10 – $12. In the future, the figures will have Bauer “pouncing, diving and running” and another Bauer seen kicking down a door will be released during the Christmas holidays.
That’s a good start, but I’m gonna need more than pouncing, diving and running. I want Jack torturing people with household appliances, eating terrorists’ throats and shooting his good friends in the neck. That’s the Jack we all know and love.
But I still can’t wait until these dolls come out. If, for no other reason, than to see how quickly somebody produces a YouTube re-enactment of the Kiefer Sutherland Christmas tree incident.
Excuse me while I put on my Stereogum hat for just a moment and attempt to introduce you to a band that you may not have heard of yet. Their name is The Affair, they have an album “dropping” (as they say in the industry) next week, and today they just so happen to be Spin’s Artist of the Day. Check out this video for their song “Honey”, then head over to Spin to download another mp3.
Now, if I was a respected journalist or a music blogger I’d take a second to mention that I’m good friends with these people (and I’d probably start by saying, “In the interest of full disclosure, blah blah blah blah.) Thankfully I’m not respected and just barely a blogger, so I should be all good. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to remove my Stereogum hat and go back to listening to my old Toad The Wet Sprocket CD. Don’t judge me.
It’s official: Tom Brady the Derek Jeter of football. Not because he’s a proven winner, a clutch player or a Hall of Famer– but because the man consistently hooks up with the most beautiful women on the planet. After recently breaking up with Bridget Moynahan, Brady has apparently found himself a nice little rebound. A nice little rebound named Gisele Bundchen. According to the Boston Herald:
â€œShe was standing outside the locker room, just kind of leaning against the wall,â€ said our spy in the bowels of QualComm Stadium. â€œNo one noticed her, she was dressed like a high-school kid, just in jeans and a T-shirt. But she is gorgeous.â€
So basically what they’re saying is that upsetting a 14-2 team by scoring 11 unanswered points in the final five minutes and advancing to the AFC Championship game wasn’t even the highlight of Tom Brady’s DAY.
That’s so not fair.
