Luciano Pavarotti in “Lunch at the Villa”


A Story Told In Pictures.

Ahh, another good afternoon here at my villa in Italy. Hello, little girl! Who are you?

And you there! With that rag on your head! You too look vaguely familiar as well… Do I know you?

Ah, good, here is Giancarlo with my opening act course, a wheel of meat. Sorry, miei amori , but only enough for-eh me. Maybe I chew up a bite and spit it into my hand for the girl.

The story continues with more candid pictures after the jump.

PROPPED: Jackass 3


There must be a lot of hipsters reading this little blog of ours because the trailer for the upcoming DVD The VICE Guide to Travel, dropped by reader jimnobu, has gotten over 40 props (be sure to read all the priceless comments!) from “homedudes” demanding it be given a spot here on the front page. Well, it’s slow today, and people really seemed to enjoy the last movie that featured the self-degrading talents of Johnny Knoxville, so why not? Here’s another movie with more drug-addled brainiacs doing dumb stuff for laughs, this time at the expense of poor people!

LISTEN UP: Don’t Stop Takka-ing



  • Now that the leaves are changing, all those perfect walks in the sun-filled chill of fall are going to need a soundtrack, which is why I think you should drift on over to Our Last Quarterstance, rake yourself up some Takka Takka and turn autumn into awesome.
  • Pop Tart is written in some Middle Eastern language with which I am not familiar, but the language of rock spoken by Albert Hammond Jr. of The Strokes is understood by all.
  • The Muso has an All-Stars of Indie Rock roster including tracks from The Walkmen, Spoon, Voxtrot, Okkervil River and more!
  • MOKB and I share a love for the soulful songwriting that can be found on Joseph Arthur’s latest album, Nuclear Daydream.
  • One my favorite-monikered bands, I Love You But I’ve Chosen Darkness, has a new music video up over at Scenestars.

THE DAILY DOUCHE: Leto’s Sword In the Stone?


letogaywad.jpgJared Leto and Sharon Stone? Of course! If you’re a marginally-talented 34 year-old character actor currently in the midst of a misguided mid-career crisis in which you’re trying to reinvent yourself as a dark and mysterious indie rocker, what better idea could you possibly have than to get out there and do some “canoodling” with a 48 year-old has been best known for giving America its glimpse of her battered vajayjay all the way back in ’92? There simply aren’t any ideas better than that, which is why we must offer our congratulations to Mr. Leto, who’s managed to somehow outdouche himself yet again. Bravo, Jared – how fitting that you would be our very first Daily Douche.

The Biggest Loser In Reverse


Ever wondered what The Biggest Loser would look like when shows in reverse? It would probably involve slim, attractive people jogging and sweating their way into a live human-flesh fatty suit. Or maybe it would look like this video, of one Matt McAllister breaking the Guiness World Record for Most T-Shirts Worn at the Same Time.

PROPPED: George Michael Is The Next George Michael


gm.jpgWith George Sr. out of prison and starring in a new sitcom, Tobias & GOB voicing characters for Comedy Central’s Freak Show, and Maeby starring in cheesy TV movies, it’s been difficult watching the cast of Arrested Development move on with their lives. It’s too soon. We’re not ready to see them in other roles. Unless, of course, we’re talking about George Michael, and the role is rock star.

Meet The Long Goodbye, (George) Michael Cera’s band. They kind of sound like Weezer meets The Honey Brothers meets early Ben Lee. Throw in one of the top 3 characters on one of the top 5 funniest shows ever, and you have the coolest band of 18-year-old kids ever. Below is the video for the song “My House”. Enjoy. Then head over to their MySpace page and watch their performance of the Weezer song “El Scorcho.” If watching George Michael yell “Goddamn you half Japenese girls!” doesn’t put a smile on your face today, I don’t know what will.

“SIZZLER”: Two Pseudo-Celebrities Have Ended Their Publicity Stunt of a Relationship!




I know there are rumors regarding my “breakup” with Brody Jenner. The truth is, we were never really together. We hung out, and he’s a nice guy, but my heart was never in it. Anything further is just a cry for publicity.Nicole Richie, MySpace, 10/4/06

While saddened by the news of Nicole’s break-up with Laguna Douche, I just can’t figure out what she could possibly mean by that “publicity” remark. I mean, really:
