What happens when you combine one of the best pop-rock artists of the 90′s (before "pop" was considered a dirty word) and one of the hottest rock chicks of the 80′s? You get Sid ‘n’ Susie, a side project of sorts featuring Matthew Sweet and The Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs.
Go to their MySpace page and listen to their covers of the Velvet Underground, the Beatles, and the Bee Gees. Okay, you can skip the Bee Gees one if you want.
As a student of VH1′s Behind The Music, I have to warn Matthew about something before the two embark on a musical career together (they’re playing South By Southwest this weekend): don’t let Susanna’s unparalleled sexiness tear the band apart. It caused problems with The Bangles, and it has the potential to break up Sid ‘n’ Susie as well. Just let her be the sexy one, okay Matthew? Think you can do that? Great.
(Oh, and in case you were worried, these pictures are proof that Susanna’s still got it. The years of walking like an Egyptian have done her well.)
SPOILER ALERT: If you’re a Sopranos viewer and haven’t seen last night’s episode yet, stay in your cave and DON’T read this post!
Here’s the footage of what you’ve been hearing about by the watercooler all day. A couple things about Uncle Junior: a) what the hell does he say right before he does the deed, and b) does anybody else think he seems like he’s straight out of a David Lynch film?
It’s only because we love you, Angelina, that we’re gathered here today for this intervention. We ask that before you shut us out, you just listen to what we have to say. You’ve been acting, well, different, this past year. You haven’t gone to work in months. You’ve dropped everything for your boyfriend.You won’t stay in one place; you’re in Paris one day, Cambodia the next. You’re just not the same Angelina we used to know.
We think we know why: first there was Maddox and we supported you on that, then Zaraha came and you promised it was the last one…until you got pregnant. And now we hear you want to adopt two more? Angie, this has gone to far, it’s time to face the fact that you’re ADDICTED TO BABIES.
While the effects may not be as sudden as drugs or booze, babe-a-holism is just as dangerous. Baby addiction is the #1 career killer amongst celebrities over 30. You need to get help. But you don’t have to do it alone. We’re with you 100%, but the first step is hand over the babies. All of them. (whats that in your pocket? baby!)
Charlize Theron has apparently split with her boyfriend of five years, Stuart Townsend:
They reportedly grew apart due to filming schedules which kept them away from one another for months at a time. Speculation about the breakup has been strong since Theron claimed a few weeks ago that a marriage with Townsend was "not really what I want." His absence was noticeable at last Sunday’s Academy Awards and the BAFTA’s the week prior. A friend of Charlize says, "Charlize is free and single again. Her relationship with Stuart is well and truly over. They just grew apart. It wasn’t always easy because filming often kept them apart for months."
I knew something was wrong! Let’s hope she’ll be smiling again soon.
Tony feels like a sailor!
The first time I ever saw The Dude do battle with the nihilists in the Coen Brothers‘ modern classic The Big Lebowski, I never could have imagined the impact this film would have on the lives of nerds, shut-ins and socially handicapped people such as myself. And now, almost a decade after the film’s initial release, the Lebowski Culture is showing no signs of slowing down.
Lebowski Fest is a celebration of everything wonderful and bizarre about the film – women dressed as valkyries, music performed by a fictional band of nihilistic Germans, endless bowling tournaments and White Russians all around. It pretty much sounds like the most fun thing ever.
With sellout events in 3 US cities every year, you probably won’t have to travel far to get in touch with your Inner Dude (or El Duderino, if you’re not into the whole brevity thing). Check out these pics from last week’s party in LA.
Netflix is perhaps the greatest thing to come along for home movies since the VCR. The selection is good, it’s easy, you can keep DVDs as long as you like, and it’s even pretty cheap. But there is a downside to the growing popularity of the online DVD movie rental service. I’m talking about Netflix Guilt. How many times has this happened to you:
When technical difficulties interrupt the zen flow of ESPN, the network’s anchors have to improvise and manage to hold it together…for less than a minute. Smit happens discovers how ESPN’s elite really talk when they think the cameras aren’t rolling. Listen for the "What the F*** Was That?" at the end of the clip. We couldn’t have put it better ourselves.
