Have Mardi Gras At Your Desk!

by

If you’re stuck inside of a cubicle with the New Orleans blues again, head on over to Cams Central to voyeuristically participate in all the Bourbon Street revelry you’re missing. 

Choose from several different camera experiences, including the Bourbocam, the Paradecam and (my favorite) the Beadcam.  All you have to do now is pour a Hurricane into your coffee mug (the boss will never know), heat up some jambalaya in the break room, and scream "show me your boobs!" to nearby co-workers while throwing beads at them. 

It’s the next best thing to actually being there.

Google Search: Amazing Race’s Tyler MacNiven

If you watched last night’s premiere of the Amazing Race 9, you’re probably wondering what those two wild n’ crazy guys are doing in the game. "Best Friends" BJ Averell and Tyler MacNiven love the irony of Hawaiian shirts and over-sized Elvis glasses. But it turns out there’s a serious side to MacNiven, the blond half of the dynamic duo that just might win the pair the million dollar prize.

A Google search shows that Macniven actually walked across Japan-about 2000 miles-just to impress a girl, oh and to make a documentary about his journey and put it up on Google video. If you couldn’t get enough of his wacky in your face antics last night and have an hour and half to spare , you can watch it here. With that kind of dedication he might just win the million dollar prize. Find out why he might not win after the jump…

  • Barry Bonds switches from "the cream" to estrogen therapy
  • CBS is suing Howard Stern for "improperly us[ing] CBS radio’s air time to promote his new show with Sirius." But they were totally fine with his throwing sandwich meat at strippers.

Apple Martin Sings the Blues

by

Gwyneth20paltrow2 Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s 2 year old daughter Apple Martin is wide-eyed and adorable but up until now she just wasn’t motivated enough. So I was relieved to see she’s finally done something with her life: Apple Martin recorded an album. The tracks have only been heard by insiders like family friend Helena Christensen. But the hope is, with this new direction, she’ll finally get out of the house and make something of herself.

Jack White Hates Us

From his rant a couple days ago over at WhiteStripes.com:

Back when there was a time when we had great writers, and respected
journalists who had earned their position as tastemakers, and won
peoples respect with their knowlege and insight, it was much easier to
understand a written opinion because at least you knew where it was
coming from.

Now those printied opinions are probably coming from the person
sitting next to you on his laptop at the mall. Why should you care
about their opinion? Why shouldn’t you? Who are all those people on vh1 trashing everyone?
Why does a failed stand up comedian have the final word on the rubik’s
cube? They are currently digging trenches for the bar to be lowered
down into.

OuchI take it Jack doesn’t love the 80′s. (via Ms. Modern Age)

While You Were Thinking It’s Still February

    Two security guards were shot at a Kanye West show in England, by a fan trying to get in without a ticket.  Just what Kanye’s ego needs – the knowledge that people would commit murder to see him perform. 
  • Sex symbol Jessica Alba is reportedly threatening to sue Hugh Hefner for giving readers the idea that she appears nude in the issue of Playboy on whose cover she posed for was featured (Ed. note: Thank you to the veritable Deep Throat of the comments sections for this important clarification).  Imagine that, people thinking you might be naked when you’re on the the cover of Playboy!
  • Lindsay Lohan claims that she "has no celebrity friends".  Probably because they’re all her lovers. 
  • The success of Brokeback Mountain has apparently "made gay okay" in Hollywood, which for so long been has been known only for its raging heterosexuality. 
  • Sorry guys, but PoweR Girl and totally desirable babe Lizzie Grubman is off the market.  Guess you’ll have to look elsewhere for the vapid, soulless succubus of your dreams!
  • If you have as much trouble keeping up as I do, click here for a handy trainwreck timeline of Pete Doherty’s wasted life.
