Ludacris Gets Sticky

by

Here’s a video for Ludacris‘ "Blueberry Yum Yum," in which he walks around a hydroponic pot factory. I haven’t seen a joint that big since History of the World Part One. Just say no, kids.

Diddy and Thick(e): Now We’re Cooking

When I heard about P. Diddy’s show Celebrity Cooking Showdown, I had my doubts. I mean, he was a great record producer, but what does he know about a cooking show? Well, my concerns were unfounded. Savvy guy that he is, Diddy turned to a true pro to host the show. I’m talking about Jason Seaver himself, Alan Thicke. And checkout this list of participants:  Naomi Campbell, Tom Arnold, Ja Rule, Gabrielle Reese, and the incomparable Ashley Parker Angel. I don’t know about you, but I’ve already got my P. Diddy oven mit on!

Is Michael Douglas Having The Best Week Ever?

by

Michaeldouglas322_1

This has been an awesome week for Michael Douglas, the intensely private movie star who’s been out of the limelight for some time. First he partnered with Hilton to give his Bermuda hotel a $100 million makeover. And earler today, a blind item hinted that he may be getting a little extra-marital loving from Mullholland Drive bombshell Laura Elena Harring. But honestly, the debut of Douglas’ lustrous multi-tonal beard alone is reason enough to have the Best Week Ever.

A New Sopranos Mystery

by

Sopranos

This season of The Sopranos seems to be about leaving viewers in the dark. Episode one gave us the Malanga Mystery: What did Uncle Junior say when he shot Tony? And this Sunday’s episode was bewildering on a number of levels. By now, you’ve probably figured out all the symbolism in Tony’s coma dream, but there is one nagging question left: Who provided the voice of Tony’s wife when he called home? There have been lots of guesses, Charmaine Bucco (Kathrine Narducci), Adrianna (Drea de Matteo), Gloria Trillo (Annabella Sciorra), or maybe Carmela with a different voice. But HBO won’t tell other than saying that they cast a woman specifically for the role and that she wasn’t famous enough to be familiar with viewers. But if that’s so, why won’t they tell us who she is? Will we see her in the next episode? I noticed that Dr. Melfi isn’t on this list, so could it have been her and the producers are just lying? I don’t mean to break anyone’s balls, but this question is giving me serious agita.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Heat Vision and Jack

by

It seems like at least once a day I see something that makes me grateful for YouTube.  This is one of those things.  Back before the turn of the century, Ben Stiller directed a pilot about a guy and his talking motorcycle, starring Jack Black and voice of Owen Wilson.  If not for the Internet, we might never have seen the result of this marriage of hilarity.  But now we can:

CBS and Yahoo! have announced that they will partner together to bring 60 Minutes video content and "robust news packages" to Yahoo!’s media properties. Each week after the show airs, the microsite will get two news packages, one an expanded version of a segment from the show, the second will be based on a "topical news theme." There will also be never-before-seen 60 Minutes video footage, as well as interactive elements including maps, a reporter’s notebook, blogs and photo galleries. In other words, you’ve got a lot of things to explain to your grandmother.

SIZZLER: Snoochie Richie?

by

Jason_mewes_1

Is Clerks director Kevin Smith considering a second career in gossip? During a speech at a school, he reportedly spilled the beans on his sidekick Jason Mewes (Jay of Jay and Silent Bob) and Mewes’ one minute stand with Nicole Richie. According to Smith, Richie followed Mewes into a bathroom at a club one night and made a man of him in 30 seconds. Why would Nicole Richie indulge in a quickie with the minor celebrity?  Here’s a hint: it’s called Bottoms Up and it’s a romantic comedy starring Paris Hilton and Jason Mewes set for release later this year. Maybe jealous Richie wanted to introduce Mewes to her bottom first. Too bad Hilton’s version won’t be as quick.

For the unrated, overly descriptive version of this story go to ONTD.

Tony really, really loves Dr. G. Watch as the two shoot hoops, dance, kiss, bounce on beds, and so much more!

    , Danger Doom, Death From Above 1979, and Blur? Yes please. Nellie’s Life is on point.
  • N.1 in Belgium is hosting 3 tracks by The Replacements today. Don’t fault them for inspiring bands like the Goo Goo Dolls– just go listen.
  • This site (I’m not even going to try to write the title) has three Johnny Cash songs, including his amazing cover of "I Won’t Back Down." I don’t think any of these songs are in Walk The Line, though, so I apologize to casual fans.
  • Clever Titles Are So Last Summer has two guilty pleasures for your enjoyment: Kelly Clarkson’s "Since U Been Gone" and Britney Spears’ "Toxic." Which one is more guilty? That’s your call.
  • An Aquarium Drunkard got their hands on an entire lost album by The Black Crowes. Go give it a listen, and try not to think about Kate Hudson every time Chris Robinson whines about how he still hasn’t found true love.
  • Have you ever heard "I’m Glad I Hitched My Apple Wagon To Your Star" by The Boy Least Likely To? Me neither, but I’m willing to give this track on Village Indian a try based on the title.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: His Balls Will Be Chocolate And Salty No More

Last night, we had to say goodbye to one of our favorite characters on television. The beloved Chef. I’ll give you a moment to collect yourselves.

In case you missed it, The Rooftop Report has most of the show up right now. Go watch it, before Tom Cruise demands they take it down.

What’d you guys think of the episode? Was it an appropriate send off for the man, the myth, the legend… the Chef? I sure hope so.
