SIZZLER: Cruising For Converts


tom cruise.jpgAccording to always-reliable Enquirer, Tom Cruise has embarked on a new mission– the pint-sized actor wants to convert Angelina Jolie to Scientology.

The action star personally called Angelina and Brad Pitt in Africa to congratulate them on the birth of Baby Shiloh — and he even invited them to his Beverly Hills home when they return to the U.S., pals say. But before the conversation ended, Tom tossed out the idea of Angie and Brad coming to check out the Church of Scientology.

This is not good. Don’t you see what he’s trying to do?? If he can get the newly born messiah to convert to Scientology, we’ll have no choice but to follow. We’re talking about the all-knowing Shiloh here; what that baby says goes (once she can talk, that is.) Let’s hope Tom doesn’t get his hands on her. We NEED Brangelina to protect that baby… our future depends on it.

ICYMI: The Borat Movie Trailer!


With the possible exception of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, there aren’t many movies I’m more excited about seeing right now than The Borat Movie. And judging by this trailer, I’m not going to be disappointed:

While You Were Making Babies



  • Orlando Bloom nibbled on Claire Danes’ neck during a Black Eyed Peas concert. He better not funk with her heart.
  • Sex in the City designer Patricia Field and Alec Baldwin knock heads on set of new movie. He refuses to wear a fake flower on his see-through blouse.
  • Religion has come between Britney Spears and Madonna’s close friendship. Of course they’ll still make out in public if it means winning an MTV moon-man.
  • Heather Mills to sue UK tabloid that claimed she worked as a hooker. Her lawyer insists she married for love.

SIZZLER: Kate Moss Back to Her Cokey Ways?


medium_kate_moss_cocaine.jpgThose rapscallions in the British tabloid press are reporting that drug-tormented supermodel Kate Moss was seen blowing chunks in the VIP section of the Isle of Wight music festival. Was this just an isolated incident caused by a few too many Jager shots on an empty stomach, or is Kate two dates with Pete Doherty away from another stint in rehab? Only time – and the tabloids – will tell.

ICYMI: Raconteurs Steadily Get More Awesome


At first I was sort of lukewarm about Jack White’s side-product and indie rock supergroup The Raconteurs, but this band has been growing on me like a burly manny on an unhappy pop star. And this latest video for “Steady As She Goes” is so awesome that I think I’m a full-on convert to Jack and his band of merry men. Check it out!

Where Are They Now?


problem_chil.jpgWhat would we ever do without our good friend The Thighmaster? Well, for one, we’d never know that Michael Oliver, better known to you as the title character in Problem Child, is now working as a roadie for the band The Samples. If only John Ritter were here to see what a tattooed, long-haired, still problematic man his little guy has become.

LISTEN UP: BWE’s Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever

  • Moistworks is loving the monkeys today (but strangely, not The Monkees.) Head over there to download monkey tracks by artists like Los Lobos and Crystal Bernard from Wings.
  • One Foot Off The Platform has a great mix posted today with tracks by Lily Allen, Nina Simone, the Arctic Monkeys, and Herman’s Hermits. Something tells me you’re into something good.
  • Speaking of great mixes, Mix Me A Molotov listed their top 5 favorite albums (so far) this year and included an mp3 from each of them. So if you like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Flaming Lips, Regina Spektor, Mates of States or Cat Power, that’s the place you want to be.
  • So Much Silence has 3 tracks from Spank Rock. I highly recommend “Race Riot On The Dancefloor.” Once you hear it you’ll understand why.
  • And finally, My Old Kentucky Blog attacked Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy The Silence” over the weekend and posted 41(!) covers of it. Time to get to work.

PROPPED: Keep Kids Away From Libraries!


Vitalspark dropped this hilarious video, originally found at Deadspin, depicting what happens when Cleveland’s investigative reporter Carl Monday takes a closer look at what sort of dangers are lurking around every bookshelf at the local public library. The fun really starts about 3 minutes in when Carl, having hidden a camera near the library’s computers, confronts a man the camera caught “boning up” on Internet porn. What ensues are three of the most unintentionally hilarious minutes I’ve ever seen. Keep dropping us all this great stuff, people!
