LISTEN UP: Your Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever

by

  • If you can’t wait for more 90′s style techno with vocals by a neurotic actress, go to TMZ to hear Brittany Murphy’s musical endeavor with Paul Oakenfold. It’s almost as cutting-edge as Little Black Book.
  • Popbytes has a mashup of Bjork’s A Hidden Place and The Cure’s The Forest. It works, especially, for teenagers who want to go to a really dark place while they’re getting dressed for school.
  • John Prine’s Fish and Whistle sounds a lot like early Bob Dylan before the god complex, the Jesus fetish or the line-drawn facial hair.  Thank Keep the Coffee Coming for this friday folk moment.   
  • Our good buddy at Advanced Theory has a cornocopia of musical youtube offerings this Friday. Take your pick from the Talking Heads, The Smiths or Tim Buckley on The Monkees. (How was that show ever canceled?)

Is MySpace Having the Best Week Ever?

by

Myspace_logo
A cursory glance at Google News reveals some shocking discoveries – MySpace is having a crimewaveTeachers are harrassing teensTeens are harrassing teachersCollege students are becoming pedophiles.   The violence and chaos is getting so out of hand that the popular networking site is scrambling to contain the problem.  The MySpace Madness is causing panic in the streets (or at least the Information Superhighway)!  The government appears to be a few public service announcements short of declaring a state of MySpace Martial Law! 

What has become of this "place for friends"?  I still remember the good old days when the worst thing you had to worry about on MySpace was that one friend who leaves all those annoying videos and songs in your comments section.  Now I know what you’re thinking – this all sounds horrible, so how can MySpace be having the Best Week Ever?  Well in case you didn’t notice, people getting in trouble and getting on the news is getting MySpace tons of free publicity, causing the site to get even bigger (and the crime problem to get even worse).  So yeah, I think MySpace is having the Best Week Ever, even if many of their users potential victims are not.

Now hurry up and add us before it’s too late!  We promise we won’t harrass you (too much).

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Kevin Smith on Clerks 2

by

Kevin Smith babbles to the YouTube audience about putting clips on YouTube, lip synchs in front of a camera, dances in front of a camera, wonders what happens to his dignity, shows a clip from Clerks 2. In that order. Unfortunately absent from the video: Doesn’t call Reese Witherspoon a c**t again; doesn’t apologize for Jersey Girl.  [watch the Jersey Girl 2 Clerks 2trailer here]

  • Kenny Rogers says he’s not happy about the plastic surgery he had on his eyes. No complaints about his head transplant, though.
  • Brad Pitt’s is sporting Maddox’s mo-hawk. The got your nose trick is funny, but Maddox really wants is hair back.
  • Jada Pinkett Smith says husband Will saved her from a life of drugs and promiscuous sex. Basically, having any fun.
  • There are lots of opportunities for former Dancing With the Stars participants. All of them, however, are based in Las Vegas.
  • Wilmer Valder(yo)mamma gets Erik Estrada’s blessing to make the movie version of Chips. A sigh of relief resounds across the western hemisphere.

SIZZLER: Lohan Panhandling Her Way Down Runway?

If you see a tiny red-haired girl stumbling down 5th Avenue, knocking on the door of every high-end fashion retailer she passes, there is no cause for concern: that’s just Lindsay Lohan

After getting passed over by Louis Vuitton for a cellphone-beater earlier this week, a determined Lohan is now hitting up Versace, shamelessly begging for a spokesmodeling deal, or at least a free dress – whatever they can spare. 

On the Couch with Dr. Weiss: David Blaine

by

Blaine_2 Dear Dr. Weiss,

I’ve frozen myself in blocks of ice and buried myself alive. This May, I plan to float underwater for a week(see picture). So why do I still feel so unfulfilled? Please help.

Fondly,

David Blaine

Dear David,

I’m glad you made the choice to ask for help.  But I’m afraid your latest stunt– a week in an underwater aquarium in New York’s Lincoln Center– is just another cry for help.  (letter continues after the jump)

Tom Cruise– not only does the man love women (and believe me, he f’ing loves women)– but he loves pregnant women as well.

Well, there’s one thing: Photoshop Contests. That’s why we’re holding a Tom Cruise: You Complete Me Photoshop Contest in honor of the soon to be baby Tomkat.

Marky-Mark and Me?

If you watched last week’s Best Week Ever – and you better have! – you probably remember the segment we did about this awesome website where you can upload your picture and it will scan your face and tell you which celebrities you most resemble.  Usually, I hate it when people tell me I look like a famous person, because a) it’s a completely pointless observation and b) I’m typically offended by who they’ve compared me with.  But this site is complimentary to the point of flattery – at least it was for me.  My top 3 were Mark Wahlberg, Jake Gyllenhaal and David Beckham.  Yeah, I don’t really see that either…but I’ll take it!  Anyway, play around with it and have some fun!
