No matter how appealing (or unappealing) the idea of Kirsten Dunst starring in a Sophia Coppola movie about Marie Antoinette sounds to you (out 10/20- check out the trailer), there’s one thing you can’t deny: the movie has a damn good soundtrack (samples here). With tracks by New Order, The Strokes, Gang Of Four, The Cure, Air, Siouxie & The Banshees and more, you really can’t go wrong. Well, here’s your chance to win a copy.
Just send an email to
firstname.lastname@example.org. At some point today we’ll choose an entry at random and one lucky winner will receive a copy of the soundtrack. You have nothing to lose. So what are you waiting for, email us now!

UPDATE: Congratulations to Laurie from NJ. And thanks to everybody who entered. We have more contests coming up, so better luck next time!

As part of their celebration, the founders made this video to thank their supporters… and rub it in. I hate life.

Victoria Beckham nee Posh Spice claims to “look really awful naked,” according to an interview in Australian Harper’s Bazaar. Following the birth of her three children, Brooklyn, Staten-Island and Da’Brahnx, Posh says the weight fluctuation has left her belly saggy, her skin orange, and her breasts high and globe-like.

We always thought Posh had a fantastic figure, and were surprised to learn about her shortcomings. Especially when an anonymous source calling themselves “Ms. Paint” forwarded us a photo showing the singing sensation in nearly no clothes at all. After the jump, take a look at naked Posh for yourself — she’s not looking half bad! Read more…
It been a long time since the brilliance of Jon Stewart and The Daily Show has been some kind of secret, but certain nights they manage to outdo even themselves. This segment, in which Jon laments the double-speak applied to President Bush’s ever-changing job description, hits the ball way out of the park.
There are a few things that could ruin a postseason baseball game: bad weather, obnoxious fans, Alex Rodriguez, and perhaps worst of all: A painful rendition of the Star Spangled Banner.
Over the years there have been too many horrendous performances of our National Anthem and “God Bless America” at games. Idolator has decided to compile a list of these disasters in the “Hey, It’s Enrico Palazzo!” Hall of Fame. Michael Bolton, Liz Phair, Steven Tyler, Jimmy Buffett and, yes, Scott Stapp, make up the inaugural class. And there are YouTube clips. Yes. There are YouTube clips.
