From â€œYouâ€™re so moneyâ€ to â€œEarmuffsâ€ to â€œLock it Up!â€, Vince Vaughn’s movie quotes have changed the way we converse, the way we think and the way we speak. Itâ€™s almost as if heâ€™s created a new language, one that is defined by witty quips and cutting rejoinders. And heâ€™s the only actor whose quotes can be used in all spectrums of speech, and are widely recognized as some of the most funniest, smartest and coolest in movie history. [Keep Reading]
I never thought I’d see so many Vince Vaughn quotes in one place. Sadly, judging by early reviews of The Break-up, it seems unlikely that this list will be amended anytime soon. Thanks to The Jay for Dropping this. Got something of your own that you want to submit? Drop it now!
In the biggest shocker of the year, American Idol winner Taylor Hicks has landed a record deal!! Hicks has been contracted to record an album debuting later this year and will release his two singles “Do I Make You Proud?” and “Takin’ It to the Streets” on June 13, 2006. But here’s the really big surprise, after mulling over his options and researching the industry, he’s decided sign a deal with 19 Recordings Unlimited, the label managed by Idol creator Simon Fuller! What a coincidence, wasn’t he on that show created by Simon Fuller and didn’t he win the grand prize of a record contract with Simon Fuller? What a funny and strange twist of events.
How do you spell Fun? Well, if you’re into watching little kids break out mad spelling skills it’s as easy as ABC (whoa. Did I just accidentally write a National Spelling Bee commercial? I think I did.) If watching middle schoolers spell words that you don’t even know the meaning of doesn’t do it for you, don’t worry, you have other options. NBC has an Office marathon running tonight, while CBS is airing another episode of Ricki Lake’s Gameshow Challenge. On top of that there’s So You Think You Can Dance?, Throwdown with Bobby Flay on the Food Nework, and various other repeats, TV movies and specials up and down the dial. So the question is this: what are YOU watching tonight? Vote now!
Tuesday night Jimmy Kimmel Live hosted a very special musical guest – actor Jared Leto’s band, 30 Seconds to Mars. As the heartthrob’s gothic pop-metal lyrics were often mumbled and just silly, we fired up the old Celebrity Translator to figure out just what the hell he was singing about. Grab some earplugs, watch the video and see for yourselves!
ProductShopNYC points us to an interesting story about Pete Wentz, bassist for Fall Out Boy and amateur pornographer, getting his Hot Topic panties into a wad over a cover of his band’s song “Dance, Dance” on the latest Kidz Bop album. For those of you who don’t know, Kidz Bop is a series of albums for kids in which popular rock and pop songs are re-imagined and adorably shouted by a chorus of young children. In the past, they’ve covered artists like Modest Mouse, Madonna and Weezer – none of whom ever had a problem with it. But here’s what Fall Out Boy had to say on their blog:
We don’t know what’s going on, because they can use a song without your permission. However, I can’t imagine some young kids singing ‘crawling into bed with me’ and all. If they change the lyrics, I believe they need to get permission. We’re looking into it.”
So to recap – taking pictures of your johnson, then using the resulting scandal to sell your crappy music is ok. Kids innocently singing said crappy songs – totally wrong.
It seems that troubled young actress has fallen victim to yet another troubling addiction : shopaholism. According to MSNBC, “the 19-year-old reportedly has been known to spend $100,000 a day, once allegedly blowing $20,000 in 20 minutes.” So now she’s reportedly seeing a hypnotist to help break the vicious cycle.
Sure she’s allegedly battled an eating disorder and drug and alcohol problems but over-shopping is far more dangerous for her career. You may not believe it now, but over shopping is a gateway drug to shop-lifting (see Wynona Ryder.) Our hope is that we can nip this problem in the bud for Lindsay loses her meager $7 million and her status in Hollywood. In the meantime we encourage her to stick with sexy addictions like over-partying and to stay away from career killers like shopaphoria or worse yet, tanorexia.
I’ve always said that X-Men 3 auteur Brett Ratner is a hacky director, but stealing dialogue from the Internet? The first video below is a re-dubbed X-Men cartoon that became an extremely popular viral video several months ago (language NSFW). The second is a scene from X-Men 3 that appears to
rip off pay tribute to the catchphrase “I’m the Juggernaut, bitch!” from the aforementioned spoof. Wonder if the college kids who created it got a WGA credit for the line?

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have asked American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee to sing at their wedding. According to sources, “Actress Holmes reportedly met McPhee at Los Angeles’ Church of Scientology, where the singer allegedly attended courses with her boyfriend, and has since become a huge fan.” McPhee is expected to sing her now famous cover of Somewhere Over the Rainbow from the Wizard of Oz. I guess Tom’s just really big fan of Dorothy.
