Danny Masterson’s Career Choice


masterson.JPGAfter filming the series finale of his long-running seriesThat 70’s show, Danny Masterson is making plans for his career future. This summer, the TV star is shooting an independent movie in New York and he even has plans to direct. And with the help of executive producer friends Ashton and Wilmer he may even have a shot at creating his own series. But he still has to be strategic, and plan out his path to success very carefully. First thing on the agenda? Attack psychiatrists on behalf of Scientology. Preferably in conversation with Matt Lauer but barring that, on a t-shirt.

ICYMI: Pac Man, The Movie


One of the hottest trends in Hollywood right now is giving the big-budget blockbuster treatment to what seems like every new video game that comes out. But what about the classics? What about…Pac Man?

It’s May 10th; Whats up?


tv set1.jpgOkay, I’m just going to come right out and say it– I don’t watch Lost. I’ve never seen an episode. I KNOW it’s the best show ever and I KNOW that I’d love it if I gave it a chance, but I feel like it’s too late. I missed the boat and I’m just going to have to deal with that. It’s not easy.

That being said, I need help. Scanning through the lineup, I realized that I don’t watch ANYTHING on Wednesday nights. I mean, I’ll probably check out the American Idol results show and I’m sure I’ll end up tuning into My Super Sweet 16 whether I like it or not, but that’s it. I need some guidance. What SHOULD I be watching on Wednesday nights? What are you watching? Vote now!

While You Were Having Morning Sickness



  • Kanye West is being sued for allegedly not paying the lease on his 2003 Mercedes. Wait, Kanyeezy drives a three year old Benz? And it’s leased? And he can’t afford it!?! I guess homey’s gold done got dug.
  • This week, Vanity Fair ran an exclusive interview entitled “The Dick Cheney You Don’t Know”. Apparently the Vice President revealed that he once “killed a man in Reno, just to watch him die”.
  • There have been shocking developments in the Knight Rider motion picture project – producers are indicating they’re not interested in OG David Hasselhoff, or his high-wattage box office heat. However, they could face a potential crew strike as KITT has flatly stated, “If The Hoff’s out, I’m out.” And judging by the motion of his red lights, he wasn’t joking around.
  • “Master of Illusions” David Blaine wants a do-over on the whole holding-his-breath-without-drowning thing. There’s nothing more impressive than when a magician is wrong about which is your card, then pleads to do the trick again.
  • If you’ve ever wondered what kinds of things movie stars who wannabe rockers require in their dressing rooms while touring in order to properly suck, check this out.

Brokeback Jokes Still Funny… In Vermont


brokeback.jpgAccording to the Phi Gamma Delta website, Phi Gamma Delta exists to promote lifelong friendships, to reaffirm high ethical standards and values, and to foster personal development in the pursuit of excellence. And, to dress pledges up like cowboys and yell homophobic slurs at them. I think that falls under the “reaffirming high ethical standards” part.

Four frat boys at the University of Vermont face $1,000 fines for this alleged hazing incident… and for running an old joke into the ground (yes, the party where the events allegedly took place was on March 2nd, but even then the bit was wearing thing.)

When asked to comment on the controversy, famous FIJI Scott Bakula said, “Brokeback Mountain… do you think they’re making a sequel? I’m available. Call me.”
