Is it possible to form a rock and roll supergroup without a single super musician?
That’s the question CBS is going to try to answer on the next season of Rock Star when Jason Newstead (Metallica), Gilby Clarke (Guns ‘N Roses), and Tommy Lee (that sex tape) join forces to find a singer to lead this group that’s destined to make one radio-friendly single and then disappear forever. Hey, if you’re mediocre enough, maybe it’ll be you!
I’m sure there are a handful of
sad 36-year-old former metal heads people out there who would be willing to argue with me that Newstead, Clark, and Lee are super-talented musicians from great bands. To those people, I’d say two things. 1) Get a job. Seriously, you haven’t been able to hold down a job since you worked at that liquor store in ’89, it’s time to get your act together. And 2) Tommyland: The Ride.
Yeah. It’s going to be a Super show.
Richard Simmons x amphetamines + Tony Danza = why television was invented.
Each week, the writers of Grey’s Anatomy do a blog entry about the show that just aired. You would think that the fans of the show would be grateful for this, but judging by this week’s comments, you would be wrong. They are disappointed. They are angry. And they aren’t going to take it anymore:
Angie writes, "I’m a little disappointed in the blog too. I’ve waited
all day to read it just for the insight as to WHY you people write the
episodes you do and all I get is what wonderful guests you had on. Yes,
Natalie Cole was GREAT as was the Veronica Mars dude, but I have
questions. Love the show – hate this week’s blog."
According to the UK’s Female First: "Britney Spears had to be rushed to hospital after treading on a hypodermic needle. The pop babe – who is on holiday in Hawaii – had stepped out of her car without shoes on when she trod on the needle in a parking lot."
Britney? Barefoot? Hypodermic Needle? My head is swimming. There are so many ripe, perfectly formed one-liners on the tips of my fingers. But I will defer to you, readers. Give us you’re best joke for this Sizzler- we’ll post our favorite later in the day.
Okay, I’m finally willing to accept that none of these fake movie trailers popping up on the internet will ever be as good as The Shining-as-a-romantic-comedy one. However, this one is still really enjoyable. Check out Must Love Jaws. The perfect usage of the Spin Doctors, James Blunt, and R. Kelly make it worth the price of admission.
Unless you’re an aging secretary with too many pets and not enough dates, chances are you probably don’t find the comic strip Garfield to be very funny or amusing.
But what IS funny and amusing is what happens when you remove Garfield’s thought bubbles from the strip, leaving a only a tragic portait of a lonely cat owner slowly sliding down the spiral to madness…
