We’ve got The Real World: Key West on in the office, and yet another group of people are having the same problems that the original cast of the Real World had: too much drinking, how to deal with the gay roommate, how to deal with the a-hole dude, who will hook up with whom, etc. But even though I’ve seen it all before, it’s still the best reality show on TV (and he first cast was the best ever). That got me to thinking: What are the five best reality shows of all time?

Here’s my list:
1) The Real World 2) The Osbournes 3) Wife Swap 4) Celebreality The Surreal Life 5) The Newlyweds

I’m not an expert on reality shows by any means, so if you are one, send me your top five in the comments section. I want to learn.

SIZZLER: The Face of a Virgin

"Sex is for after marriage. [Men] have to respect that this is my choice. If there’s no respect, that means they don’t want me."

Those are the words of model-slash-reason I steal my neighbor’s Victoria’s Secret catalogs, Adriana Lima, according to Page 6.

Now, Lima has dated Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter, and (I use this term loosely) rocker Lenny Kravitz. I guess they didn’t respect her choice. Idiots.

Adriana, I just want to go on record and let you know that I do respect your choice. A lot. And I agree, sex is for after marriage. So that’s why you should date me. I’ll be perfectly content with third base. I promise.

Check out some crazy (NSFW) Lima pictures over at Egotastic. And while you do, please, show some respect.

Spike Lee Says “No Way” to President Condi

Spike Lee has mixed feelings about Condoleeza Rice. On the one hand he hates her, on the other he despises her:
“African-Americans will have to really, really, really, really, really, REALLY analyze the Secretary of State’s record, and get past the pigmentation of her skin,” he said. “If we do that, I don’t think we can vote for her. I’m not the spokesperson for 45 million African Americans … but that’s my right as an American citizen.” He laughed. “Hopefully, that right hasn’t been rescinded yet. I’m not going to vote for that woman. No. Way.”

[A confession: I'm just posting this because I think the picture of Rice sitting alone, staring out an airplane window is somehow really funny, though I can't say why.]

LISTEN UP: Your Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever

  • Buffet Libre hosts a few awesomely angsty Mogwai songs. If you read Spanish the blog will have extra special meaning to you, because you’ll understand it.
  • Birdmonster’s folky-rocky  All The Holes In The Wall is one part Neil Young, Two Parts Jack White and a dash of not-quite-as-good-as-either. But definitely worth a listen (or two)at My Old Kentucky Blog.
  • The Hype Machine generously provides us with freshly spilled Built to Spill. Temporarily Blind reminds us of the good old days when Modest Mouse was poor and under-produced.
  • Remember when we were young and pure and believed that Billie Jean might actually be Michael Jackson’s lover? Take a trip through  you tube to a better time.
  • Get down with Donald Byrd’s The Little Rasti at Earfuzz. The ditty from the Ethiopian Nights, an album that explores the African roots of Jazz,  "is about as sublime as it gets" according to the blogger. We like it too.

Sunday night’s premiere of The Sopranos had everybody talking the next day.  Is Tony okay?  What does this all mean?  And perhaps most importantly, what the f*ck did Junior say when he shot him

We don’t really know, but whatever he said, we’re obsessed with it.  Check out our new mash-up!

As you may have heard by now, the story that Will Ferrell died in a paragliding accident was just a hoax, and a lame one at that. It was factually wrong, mathematically challenged, and included spelling errors. But if you like a good hoax, you might like to see this list of the 100 best April Fool’s hoaxes of all time at the Museum of Hoaxes. It includes the Swiss Spaghetti Harvest, Sidd  Finch, the Taco Liberty Bell, Nixon for President in ’92, and tons of other great ones. The list is incredibly entertaining, and also it might inspire you for April Fool’s in a couple of weeks.
