When you combine sporting events with entertainers/comedians/writers who aren’t sports people, one of two things can happen: It’ll either end up like the Dennis Miller mess on Monday Night Football, or like this.
What does the Super Bowl represent to Chuck Klosterman, a random writer you have never met and (in all likelihood) have never even heard of? That is the quandary that has America talking. And that is the quandary I will attempt to answer through this sporadically updated weblog, a process Arctic Monkeys fans like to call "blogging."
Chuck is blogging about the Superbowl from Detroit all week long. Even if you don’t care about who wins the big game– or who’s playing in the big game– this is a must read. If nothing else, I guarantee that this is the only Superbowl Blog you’re going to find that references Soundgarden, Tawny Kitaen and Robert Altman. Read it all here.
The Sex and the City original painting "Charlotte’s Vagina" is up for auction on eBay. As I’m writing this, the reserve has yet to be met, and the top bid is only $305. In case you were wondering, it’s 54 inches by 96 inches. The painting. Not the vagina.
So there you have it. If you want, you can buy Charlotte’s vagina on eBay. Meanwhile, Samantha just keeps giving hers away. Oh no I din’t! I went there!

Just when we thought felt-skinned creatures were all but extinct, a prophet has emerged to resurrect the Muppet race. His name? Brian Henson, son of Jim.
Not only is Brian set to produce the sequel to The Dark Crystal, tentatively titled, The Power of the Dark Crystal, but he’s also helming Fraggle Rock: The Movie.
The age of the Muppet is upon us.
Hate football, but love commercials? Here’s a preview of the biggest and best commercials that will air during this Sunday’s 6 hour man-tackle.
According to Reality Blurred, the ratings for Skating With Celebrities improved 183 percent over Arrested Development. To some, this might suggest that Americans are morons, but I donâ€™t think thatâ€™s true. People watch TV to relax and have a good time, so if they would rather watch a bunch of fading stars compromising their dignity for one last shot at the spotlight than an innovative scripted show, is that really so bad? Life is hard enough without having to prove how smart you are every time you turn on the TV.
Speaking of George Clooney, this week he was nominated for an Oscar for his acting, directing, and his writing. Plus, heâ€™s not fat, can drink again, and is shooting a French coffee commercial almost as we speak!
George Clooney, who’s nominated for three Academy Awards this year, charmed Extra’s Jerry Penacoli in an interview after the nominations were announced early yesterday morning. According to Extra online, George joked about Penacoli’s bright blue tie, saying "The tie is waking me up, I’ll tell you that."
Penacoli was reportedly delighted by Clooney’s playful egging and was overheard after the interview bragging to friends that "while we’re not best, best friends, he would totally say hi to me on the street now if I saw him."
What do Matt LeBlanc and BWE’s Modern Humorists have in common? They were both captured on tape by this screaming tourist.
Well, that, and they both love the movie Ed. But seriously, who doesn’t?
