You know, it’s hard out here for a pimp. Especially for one pimp in particular. The Smoking Gun, possibly tipped off by all the iced out chains suddenly available on eBay, is reporting that Suge Knight – one-time rap mogul, co-founder of the Death Row Records, and the only man with the cajones to beat up on Vanilla Ice – is flat broke, down to his last $11. So don’t be surprised if you’re walking around Los Angeles and a very large, intimidating man with a “will bully rappers into signing with my label for food” sign asks you to “hold a dollar”.
At least buy him a burger or something.
The weekly segement in which we all brag about how cool our taste in music is by shuffling the songs on our iPods and posting – honestly – the first five resulting random tracks. Our guest this week is a favorite on Best Week Ever, a hilarious comedian, and one fourth of The Human Giant – the lovely and talented Mr. Paul Sheer! So what does Paul listen to when he’s not cracking wise on our show? Let’s take a look:
1. “Sexy Motherf*cker” – Prince
2. “Let’s Face It” – The Mighty Mighty Bosstones
3. “Lay Low” – My Morning Jacket
4. “Girl, You’ll Be A Woman Soon” – Urge Overkill
5. “Mr. Rogers Neighborhood” – Fred Rogers
I think I’d be a little surprised about the Mr. Rogers song if this was anyone other than Paul. As always, post the results of your own shuffle in the comments!
He’s jumped off of flagpoles and buried himself alive. But in his greatest challenge yet, David Blaine, master illusionist will attempt to turn himself into a sun dried tomato.
Check out these pictures from Towleroad (via Gawker) of David Blaine’s wrinkly, prune hands after almost one week in a fishbowl.
Last night your intrepid team here at BWE.tv braved the elements and made a rare sojourn out of our blogging dungeon to attend the uber-exclusive party at Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom celebrating the 1000th issue of the only counter-culture “underground ‘zine” that puts Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and N’Sync on its cover – Rolling Stone Magazine! Read all the sordid details after the jump.
I’m not a big gambling guy. With the exception of fantasy sports (which I decided isn’t gambling– it’s a skill), I really don’t put money on too many things. However, I’m willing to bet that Tom Hanks on SNL will be great. It’s Tom Hanks! The guy’s hosted the show like 30 times. With the exception of Steve Martin and Alec Baldwin, nobody’s a safer bet than Hanks. So that’s my pick of the weekend. What are YOU watching? Family Guy? Despereate Housewives? Numb3rs? Vote Now!
On today’s Tony Danza Show, our favorite talk show host broke out the ukulele, actually 100 ukuleles, and a sing-along ensued.
During Tom Cruise’s multi-leg journey through the city on Wednesday, the actor drove his motorcycle to BET’s 106 and Park, and from the looks of how he’s dancing he never got off it. Major Props to illini who dropped of this video of Tom keeping it real, uncomfortably real.
