Unless you hate joy, there is no reason not to be watching NBC’s sublime Thursday night show, The Office. After managing to overcome monumental expectations established by the popularity of the original British version, The Office seems to have reached a nice cruising altitude, and is consistently one of the funniest, smartest and most innovative comedies on network televsion.
The Office’s success can largely be attributed to its cast of talented, quirky performers – such as Rainn Wilson’s anal-retentive worker bee, Dwight Schrute. Dwight’s awkward interactions with clueless boss Michael (Steve Carell) and taunting peers Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) are one of the show’s biggest strengths, and now you can get even more Schrute as "Dwight" is now blogging over at NBC’s surpisingly funny promotional site.
Just don’t let him find out that you’re reading his blog on company time.
According to E! , Paula Abdul had to skip out on a press conference because she had an eye infection. Abdul apparently had a "really bad reaction to something" that caused the eye to swell. Get well soon!
From the LA Times: "The still-trembling House of Coco is about to be royally rocked by yet another Golden Globes dress debacle. Unconfirmed reports are surfacing that Portmanâ€™s so-called ‘vintage’ black lace Chanel frock worn to Mondayâ€™s Golden Globe Awards is another recent repeat. Embarrassingly, the same strapless Chanel frock may have been worn by Debra Messing to the 12th Annual Glamour Magazine Women of the Year Awards back in 2001." This is embarrassing, but on the other hand, matching dresses can be kind of cute.
Everyone has their strengths. Some people are good at quantum physics, others pottery. If you haven’t discovered your special calling yet, consider chocolate bar indentifcation.
In this game, you have to name that candy bar just by seeing its insides.
Are you a candy prodigy?
On this day in 1969, Nancy Kerrigan was conceived. The blessed event might have begun with Nancy’s parents going to their local cinema for a matinee, maybe even the Brokeback Mountain of its time, Midnight Cowboy. On the way home, they could have gotten themselves in the mood by listening to the number one R&B song that week, "I Can’t Get Next to You" by the Temptations. At the house, they likely saw the news that the Soyuz 8 had been launched, then caught Marcus Welby, MD, before retiring to the bedroom to create the future Olympic silver medalist and partner of Dave Coulier. (The Russian judge gave her father’s performance a 4.7.) Well done, Kerrigans. The world thanks you.
Also conceived today: Sammy Hagar (1947), Paul Simon (1941), Marie Osmond (1959), Ashanti (1980)
Recovering cocaine enthusiast Kate Moss was spotted canoodling with fellow 12-stepper Jack Osbourne on Monday night at a Post-Golden Globes party in LA.
Try not to let your utter confusion distract you from the important, inspirational message to be found here: With proper diet and exercise – and having a 1970s rock icon for a father – you too can hook up with troubled supermodels.
According to Female First, there’s a Hawaiian taxi driver who says that Paris Hilton was "too drunk to notice she’d wet herself" when he picked up her and her boyfriend. The driver says he cleaned up the mess with a towel and plans to use it as DNA evidence. Guy, you’ve got Paris Hilton’s pee-stained towel: forget the DNA and go straight to ebay!
Paul Scheer has been on fire lately. If you love Lost, King Kong, or 24 you must check out his blog. You must.
I love this movie poster. It’s probably the only way Kong would get into the Academy Awards this year.
You can’t go anywhere these days without hearing the name Chuck Norris. The Random Fact Generator is probably the best thing to ever happen to his career (besides Sidekicks.)
I’m not sure how old this video is (Livejournal people), but it’s new to me. And it’s phenomenal. Watch Chuck Norris sing Meatloaf’s "I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)" here.
Gorillamask. They’ve done it again.
ABSOLUT is proud to announce the launch of ABSOLUT KRAVITZ – a new music project which sees Lenny Kravitz creating an exclusive new track based on his interpretation of the ABSOLUT brand.
I can’t believe Lenny sold out. This is utterly shocking! I mean, for the guy from the Gap commercials to go and sell out… is nothing sacred? [Absolut Kravitz]
