This is the kind of thing that makes me proud to be a member of the Vh1 family. This Sunday, March 26th, Vh1 Classics is going to be playing the AMAZING video for 80′s classic "99 Luftballoons" over and over again for an hour. And guess what? It’s for charity, benefitting Hurricane Katrina Survivors!
That’s right – "99 Luftballoons". For an hour. For a good cause. It’s like all the all the holidays rolled in to one big ball of wonderful. If you want a little preview, crank up those speakers, sit back and enjoy:

According to Female First, Lindsay Lohan is "desperate" to play Wonder Woman in an upcoming movie based on the comic book/TV show. She says, "I’m trying to find roles right now that are different to anything I’ve done to show my abilities, to show that I have some sort of stretch in me. Because most of the things that I’ve done so far are aimed at younger girls and are light-hearted." (And of course, Wonder Woman would be a gritty crime drama.) I think Lohan would do a fine job, but Lynda Carter will always be Wonder Woman to me.
Goldenfiddle asks a very good question: "Sweet Maui Onion, is there anything better on reality TV right now than the â€œrelationshipâ€ between twin sister models Kelly [the confident one]…and Sabrina [the sad one whose skin broke out] on MTVâ€™s mannequintastic 8th & Ocean?" The answer is, of course, no. But as awesome as watching these two play out their (one-sided) rivalry, it’s nothing compared with the best twin show ever, Double Trouble.

I normally wouldn’t post a video of somebody lip synching a song on the internet– I mean come on, it’s been done a billion times– but today I’m making an exception for three reasons:
1. The amount of effort put into this one is impressive. There are costume changes, slow motion, a shower scene. I’m impressed.
2. The guy in the wig kind of looks like a young Mr. Belding from Saved By The Bell. And
3. Who doesn’t enjoy listening to Kelly Clarkson’s "Since U Been Gone"? Click here to watch the video now.
This week Rolling Stone magazine finally lived like a rock star, albeit an aging one. The seminal rock music magazine has long been tame by comparision to the celebrities it portrays, but this week the publication went on a non stop bender that rivaled any heavy metal comeback rocker on the block.
First the magazine spent a whole day in a heroin den with Pete Doherty who generousy offered smack and ecstasy (although the magazine noted he was stingy on the crack). Then the rag got into a very public fight with blast-from-the-past celebrity Kirstie Alley. The gloves-off battle of word rivaled the brawls of longtime rock star bandmates like Slash and Axl. And now it’s been reported, the magazine will partner with MTV to host an Apprentice-style reality show where interns vie for a one year position at the magazine. Just like Vince Neil and Tommy Lee, the publication has found its audience on reality TV. With a week like this, Rolling Stone will be racing in a plastic bubble on Celebrity Fit Club in no time.
How y’all doin’? I’m Ronnie Dwayne Munro, and I’m here to talk about the
one thing I know anything about: trailers. This week, we’re gonna be
lookin’ at the newest trailers available here on the World Wide
Click – Oh man, ain’t this movie got it all? Adam Sandler, 80′s songs, the guy from Baywatch, a story about a dude who can use a TV clicker to control HIS LIFE! Holy hell could I ever use somethin’ like that there invention! My old lady’s always tellin’ me to get the Camaro washed and pick up the food stamps and drop Little Dale Jr. off over at the trailer park park, so boy would it ever be nice to be able to press pause and rewind and all that. Actually, I’d be happy just to have a VCR.
Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector – Dear Jesus, thank you so much for blessing us with this movie. I been hopin’ for this movie to happen for a long time now, and damned if you didn’t hear my prayers and git ‘er done. I can already tell how much I’m gonna love this movie cause in the 2 minute trailer, Larry makes fun of women, Asians, Jews, homosexuals, black people and Biff from Back To the Future. I know you did this, Jesus, ’cause this is a movie that could only be made in heaven.
The Da Vinci Code and Basic Instinct 2 after the jump.
A few weeks ago, I wrote a defense of Steve Martin‘s remake of The Pink Panther because there were so many haters out there doing what they do best. Hating, that is. Anyway, guess which movie beat the pants off V for Vendetta in the UK this weekend? You guessed it, the wild and crazy inspector himself. So let this be a lesson to all of you who doubt Steve Martin’s judgment. He’s smarter than you, richer than you, and he’s always right. And if you have a problem with that, well excuse me.
