Transformers Rejects


trailertrasher.jpgIn honor of hack director Michael Bay and his quest to make a live-action Transformers movie piss all over my childhood, Worth 1000 is having another amazing Photoshop contest: Rejected Transformers! My favorite, “Trailer Trasher”, can be seen to the right.

LISTEN UP: BWE’s Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever


  • Brian from Bows + Arrows posted the first five songs that came up when he shuffled his iPod today. So head over there for some Dylan, Elton John, M83, Mountain Goats, and DJ Shadow. Mine would be way more embarrassing.
  • You Aint No Picasso has a great Saturday Looks Good To Me song you should check out. Quite a wordy introduction, no?
  • The Pillows are big in Japan. Awesome Until Proven Guilty thinks they should be big here too. Download 3 tracks now and do your best to sing along.
  • Neiles Life posted some tracks from the new Death Cab for Cutie “Crooked Teeth” single. Go make Seth Cohen proud.
  • Be the hippest kid on the block- head over to Red Blondehead for a bunch of tracks by Gnarls Barkley, The Walkmen and Dirty on Purpose. Oh, and Snow Patrol.
  • If you want some prime Radiohead B-Sides head over to Stage Hymns. If you want A-sides, buy the damn albums already, will ya?

While You Were Sleeping In, You Lazy Bastard



  • Chris Rock hired embroiled detective Anthony Pellicano to investigate a woman who claimed to be his babymamma…after Rock’s initial investigation of the woman, led to the accusation.
  • Maury Povich is being sued by a producer on his show who claims he forced her to watch porn and expose herself. Sounds like this could all be worked out on Maury’s show.
  • Angelina and Brad issue a plea for privacy while she has her baby in Africa. Also asking for a masseuse and prenatal yoga instructor.
  • Tom Cruise says he changes diapers and burps Suri while Kate breastfeeds her. We didn’t ask.
  • Mischa, Nicole and DJ AM spend the day painting pottery…Blackberry’s count as pottery right?

What This Ad Presupposes Is…


It’s pretty rare that I get excited about a commercial, but this American Express spot directed by and starring Wes Anderson, is more entertaining than 90% of the feature films that will come out this year:

SIZZLER: Tom Thumbs a Ride


Tom Cruise says he used to hitchhike with truckers who were picking up female prostitutes outside New York’s Holland Tunnel.

Cruise, who was 18 at the time, explained he simply hitchhiked to save a little cash but he never got invovled with the women. And you know what? We believe him.

Are the 90’s Having the Best Week Ever?


link.dave.winonna.jpgThere was a time when life was simpler. We believed we could make a difference by tieing flannel shirts around our waists. We thought our doc martin combat boots were intimidating to adults. We all wanted to move to seattle for the music but more so for the coffee and we even believed Wynona Ryder was a role model.

Well those days are long gone, but the music is back. Smashing Pumpkins is reuniting for an album. Eddie Vedder’s on tour and Soul Asylum is in the studio recording a comeback. Even Courtney Love may be working on an album with the help of Moby (and hopefully a sponsor).

Now if we could just bring back My So Called Life, Bill Clinton and the 20 pounds missing from Ethan Hawke’s face, it’d be like the good old days.
