So the big news is that The Gilmore Girls is nearing it’s last season, as the show’s creators have jumped ship. I personally never really liked the show, but I find myself distraught over the news. Mainly, because I have a feeling Gilmore fans are very co-dependant and will not take this information lightly.
No question, among the Gilmore community, there will be a lot tears, a lot of blame foisted on ex-boyfriends, plenty of Wiccan pray circles, an unhealthy amount of chocolate cake, mandatory book club meetings, plenty of aromatherapy, and nonstop Build-a-Bear workshops.
You are such a strong group of people and you’ve been through so much together, from Rory’s rebellion to Lorelai’s rollercoaster relationship. But you’ve managed to pull through with all the wit and candor of a personalized pillow. The hard truth is that there will never be another show set in a quaint B&B town, filled with pleasantly plump people and a mother daughter duo who’s banter can only be stopped with a fying pan to the skull. No they were one of a kind. But they’re not Gilmore Girls anymore, they’re Gilmore Women and you need to let them go. Believe me, their spirit will live on in the souls of shows like The Ghost Whisperer, Beautiful People and Starting Over. And those shows will never get canceled.
Over at the Jane blog, Lindsay Robertson has some good comments on today’s California Supreme Court ruling against the woman who sued the writing staff of Friends for sexual harassment.
If you’re not familiar with the case, a female writers’ assistant, years after being terminated from the show, decided that many of the comments and ideas she was exposed to in the "writers room" constituted sexual harrassment, then filed a lawsuit that raised many greater questions about the appropriate nature of a creative environment.
Luckily, by ruling against this opportunistic person, the court upheld the sanctity of the writers’ room, and I can continue making inappropriate and salacious sexual remarks to Piper all day, per usual.
This has got to be some kind of world record. Troubled rocker Pete Doherty, only 3 hours after appearing in court and being spared jail time on drug charges from an arrest last month, has been arrested yet again, totally demolishing his previous personal best time of 8 hours back in January. To give you some perspective, Bob posted about Pete’s victorious court appearance today slightly more than an hour ago, and Pete has now gotten himself arrested again. How can we even keep up?
I can’t come up with words to describe what Paul posted on his blog today… so instead, I’m leaving you with this picture:
Exactly. Paul has ALL 14 TRACKS over at his blog, so go over there and download them NOW. Then sit back, pop open an Asian Experience Lightning Bolt Energy Drink and just enjoy. You know Paul is.
Paul’s Blog is the place to be. Or you can pre-order the album on Amazon. Be careful Chuck Norris… your reign as the Number 1 karate-chopping white guy go-to punchline may be over.
You remember Gay Robot, don’t you? Well, I found another clip featuring everyone’s favorite homosexual home appliance, this one taken from the show’s pilot for Comedy Central (who still hasn’t indicated if and when the show will be released):
When Hollywood producers need a guy who can save his family they cast Harrison Ford. But when they’re looking for a guy to be overshadowed by a female lead, they call the woman’s wingman, Paul Rudd. While Rudd is a talented actor is his own right, with an impressive comedic resume, it seems like he’s always top pick for any production where a woman needs to shine. Take his new Broadway show with Julia Roberts. Yes he’s in it too, and he’s probably pretty good, but that’s not important. This is Julia’s vehicle and Paul is there to non-threateningly enhance her glow (and her acting).
More proof that Paul’s the woman’s wingman after the jump…
Danza wasn’t always the World’s Hottest Grandpa.
Man oh man, I feel like I say it a lot, but THIS is why YouTube was invented! Over 10 years ago, before he made Road Trip, Old School or Starsky & Hutch, filmmaker Todd Phillips directed a controversial documentary called "FRAT HOUSE". The film’s rights were purchased by HBO, but due to legal and personal threats from its subjects, the movie was never officially released – until now. It’s up on YouTube in several chapters, and it’s both hilarious and disturbing – hurry up and watch it before it gets pulled! (Language NSFW!)
