For Your Consideration

With the Academy Award nominations announcement coming up on Tuesday morning, Hollywood is currently bathing itself in fear, Xanax and delusion.  But who really cares about their glitzy back-patting party, when the only awards that truly matter – the Razzies – have begun taking their yearly inventory of Tinseltown’s most awful godawfulness?

Don’t just sit there – go vote for your least favorite movies and stars.  With the Razzies, you ARE the Academy!

In Case You Missed It: My Doorbell Remix

I’m not a guy who likes cutesy things. I’m sorry, I’m not. When I see little Anne Geddes babies dressed up like flowers I don’t go "awwwwww." I run away. They freak me out.

Okay, now that that’s established I just have to say I’m sorry… but this is too cute. It made me smile, and I’m sure it’ll make you smile too. If it doesn’t, it can only mean one thing: You hate children.

Thanks to The Modern Age for the link. And to Little Jack’s parents for introducing the kid to The White Stripes at such a young age.

According to this, Tom Cruise may be abstaining from sex with Katie Holmes because he doesn’t want to harm the baby:

"An insider" tells In Touch Weekly that Tom Cruise "has put the brakes on their lovemaking." It turns out that Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard "wrote that a mother-to-be shouldn’t engage in sex because it could negatively impact the baby."

In this case, he could have a point.

From the Press Gazette:

Men’s Health magazine has put one of its own writers on the cover after readers complained that its six-packed cover stars presented an unrealistic goal for ordinary blokes.

I get the "exercise" thing, but does this also mean I have to start watching The L Word, shopping at French Connection and making catty comments during Academy Awards red carpet shows?

Ok, I admit it.  I’m bitter.

Hard News From CNN: Sex Tapes Good for Your Career

by

From_paris_hilton_sex_tape1

From CNN:

In a Hollywood museum specializing in erotica, there lies a grainy tape of a woman having sex with a man on a couch. The museum says it’s widely believed, though denied by her estate, that the woman is Marilyn Monroe, circa 1948. Fast-forward some 60 years, past Rob Lowe and Pamela Anderson and Paris Hilton. The latest celebrity sex tape contains 14 minutes of seriously hard-core action between actor Colin Farrell and a former Playboy Playmate, punctuated by dialogue like: "Where’s the zoom on this?" But like his predecessors in the genre, Farrell’s career is not likely to be harmed at all. In fact, it could even get bigger. It seems what we expect from our celebrities is radically different from what we expect from, say, our politicians. Or ourselves. "The public is very forgiving," says Kate White, editor-in-chief of Cosmpolitan. "And very intrigued. It’s not like, ‘Oh no Colin, not you!’"

Thank goodness we can rely on CNN for such penetrating analysis of this important issue.
