  • Have you heard of John Hughes? Not the seminal 80′s director John Hughes, but the seminal Hefty Records founder and son of the seminal 80′s director. 3Hive has the lowdown on John Hughes the sequal.
  • Devil in the Details has a remix of Gnarls Barkley’s Crazy.
  • WFMU’s Beware of the Blog introduces us The Shuttleworths, a family of four part harmony that never, ever existed.
  • Audiography has an Add cover of A-Ha’s original Take on Me. While there’s no cartoon romance in this version, there is a violin.
  • Persephone’s Bee’s song Nice Day is the antidote to Daniel Powter’s Had a Bad Day. Thanks MOKB, we need that.

24: The Deleted Scene

by

You think you know 24? Well, I bet you didn’t know there was a scene that they deleted in the first season. A very intense one, where Jack receives an important phone call at the worst possible time. Good thing he has Verizon. In the words of Jack Bauer, Check it out… NOW!

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Denise Dishes Online?

by

denise.jpgWe already mentioned it, but I can’t stop thinking about this bizarre interview with Denise Richards over at TMZ. You know you’re one pissed off celeb when you’d go so far as giving “exclusive” interviews to online gossip sites in which you stand in a poorly-lit hallway and talk sh*t about your ex-friend who used to be on Melrose Place. Denise, why not just grab a megaphone, wrap yourself in tin foil, and set up shop down on Hollywood Boulevard, telling the “truth about Charlie” to any tourist who happens by?

Classy.

by

Big ups to reader laughterkey for dropping this heeesterical fake trailer in which Jessie Spano is saved by her friends – and maybe the bell – from the horrors and indignities of herbal supplement stimulant addiction!

SIZZLER: TomKat’s Prenup

by

tomkatLast year, Katie Holmes’ rumored starting salary for being Tom Cruise’s gal was $5 million dollars. But she’s shown so much initiative in her first year alone, by passively promoting Scientology, getting knocked up and even going the extra mile to follow Tom across the globe during the third term of her pregnancy, that the Cruise corporation decided to give her a raise.

Tom Cruise has reportedly given Katie a prenuptial agreement worth over $40 million. Sources say the actress will receive a trust fund of $15 million even if she doesn’t wed Cruise, and if she does she’ll earn another $25 million in the event of a divorce. Sure it’s a lot of money in a short amount of time, but based on her performance we think she’s earned every penny.

It’s May 3rd; What’s Up?

by

tv set.jpgWho’s getting kicked off of American Idol this week? After so many amazing episodes this season, how is South Park going to wrap it all up tonight? Can House save Omar Epps? Does anybody still watch Alias? Those are just a few of the questions that we’re going to have answered tonight, Wednesday, May 3rd. But here’s my question to you: What are YOU watching? Vote now! (Oh, and for the record, I think Elliot is getting the boot. You’ll see.)

Tom’s New Look

by

wartom1.jpgTom Cruise always sported the same motorcycle jacket and jeans look, designed to convince fans that he was young, dangerous and still really cool to the youngsters.

Well based on last night’s appearance on Dave Letterman and today’s appearance on Regis and Kelly, Tom’s got a new, more mature look. After testing the style in focus groups over several months, his team of experts have carefully designed a new outfit for a more paternal Tom: A slim-fitting suit with shirt, tie and v-neck sweater. Whether it’s grey and black (like last night)or white and blue(like this morning), Tom looks like a dandy, respectable older man and not the danger-zoned hero he was last year.

Sure he was wildly in love, in fact giddy with passion last year, but this year he’s a stately, cane-leaning, Wall Street Journal reading family man. We can’t wait till next year when he debuts his sweater vest, nurses’ shoes and walker.
