Something felt familiar about last night’s “Treehouse of Horror” Halloween special on The Simpsons. If there’s one thing you think about as you head to the polls tomorrow, let it be this lesson, which Kang and Kodos just learned the hard way.
There is something refreshing about bloopers in the new millenium: Those responsible immediately realize their fate as YouTube fodder. Take, for example, the following clip of Fox News anchor Jane Skinner getting a little tongue tied over Afghanistan’s “Top Cop,” to which Shepard Smith response “See you on YouTube, Jane!” Appropriate that such a flub would take place on Skinnerville, which sounds more like a popular chain for circumcisions/burritos than a news program. But hey: At least O’Reilly gets a shout out. (Audio borderline NSFW)

Cinematician Michel Gondry and his brother Oliver had an unsurprisingly innovative idea for the French band Laquer‘s 2003 music video: Drive from L.A. to New York, filming the entire journey with time lapse photography. If you’re sitting in a dark depressing cubicle right now, this will probably be the highlight of your day. (Click on white space below to play!)

A.C. Slater has come a long way. First he was Bayside’s star wrestler, next he wowed audiences by Dancing with the Stars, and now reports indicate that he’ll be replacing Patrick Swayze in a remake of your older sister’s favorite movie:
Producers of the new ‘Dirty Dancing’ movie have finally found the man whom they think will be perfect for Patrick Swayze’s role.
According to inside reports, TV actor Mario Lopez managed to impress the film’s producers with his cha-cha moves as a contestant on TV show ‘Dancing with the Stars’.
Apparently they’re looking for a lesser-known actress to take on the female lead. Hmm. A lesser known actress. I bet Jennifer Grey is available.

Most of you are probably familiar with the hit blog Post Secret, where people anonymously write in their innermost secrets on an artsy (aaaand alittlebitfartsy) postcard and mail them in, until they are posted online, for the world’s perusal every Sunday. Which got us to wondering: Do celebrities mail their secrets in? Surely, they must. Who else can they turn to? But which celeb mailed in what secret? We think we’ve cracked the case. So we present to your our version of Post Secret, ingeniously entitled Celebrity Post Secret. Take a look at the cards, and click on each one to find out who we believe to be the most likely celebrity mailer inner!

Tomorrow is a big election day for America. You see, Willie Nelson is out there campaigning to stop horses from being slaughtered for food. But luckily for all those who love the taste of horse, there is a candidate fighting for their interests, fighting for every American man, woman and child’s right to eat what they want – even if it’s cute and friendly. When you hit the polls tomorrow, please – Vote Blagg.
It’s finally here: After years of compulsive binge eating, after one failed Showtime series documenting said binge eating, after a very public announcement that said pudge would be lost thanks to Jenny Craig (read: millions of dollars and round-the-clock food-jail), after losing a small African village, and after winning over our hearts: Kirstie Alley, current star of Formerly Fat Now Just Kinda Buxom Actress, will be stripping down to her bikini on Oprah today.

Our good friends Stuckey & Murray want to remind you of a very important little fun fact before you step into the voting booth tomorrow: Mark Foley is a pervert. Check out their new tune “Mark Foley, Holy Moley”. It’s the catchiest song about a Republican House member engaging in inappropriate conversations with teenage pages… ever.
