Mi Cokefest Es Su Cokefest



Check out the flyer for an upcoming Final Four event in Indianapolis, sponsored by the beverage giant.   

My Cokefest would probably involve more cigarettes and less singer-songwriters. But provided enough refreshing coke, Carrie Underwood could sound like Joe Strummer by the end of the night. (thanks adfreak)

POLL: Better Wonder Woman? Lindsay or Charisma


Lindsay Lohan has made no secret that she’d like the role of Wonder Woman in the upcoming Joss Whedon film. Well, another actress has thrown her name into the mix: Veronica MarsCharisma Carpenter. This is from Superhero Hype:Lindsay_l

POLL: Which Movie Are You More Excited About?



I never thought I could be more completely excited by a movie than I was for Snakes on a Plane.  But then I read this.  So now, I must conduct a comparative analysis:

What it’s called: SNAKES ON A PLANE
What it’s about: Duh
Who’s in it:  Samuel L "motherf**king" Jackson

What it’s called: BALLS OF FURY
What it’s about: An evil crime lord who is also a ping-pong enthusiast.
Who’s in it: Christopher Walken (as said ping-pong-loving crime lord)

This is like Sophie’s Choice or something.  Tell me, which movie are you more excited about? 

Sharon Stone Wants to Teach Your Daughter About Oral Sex



Sharon Stone thinks that teenagers should practice oral sex as an alternative to intercourse. That’s fine advice, but it’s a little strange when she gives it to a girl in a store:

[Stone] explains, "I was in the store the other day and I watched a young girl trying on clothes, showing her abdomen. "Her mother was trying to talk to her about not being inappropriately luring. I said, ‘Gee that would look much nicer with a camisole under.’ "Her mother walked away, and I said to the girl, ‘I’d like to give you a two-minute conversation about sex.’"

Yeah, that’s not a very presumptuous and weird thing to do. But you have to give it to Stone: When it comes to the value of oral sex, she puts her money where her mouth is….

Celebrity Headliner Equations


Thebenchwarmersposter_1 When Hollywood executives cast the leads in a movie, a lot of thought goes into who’s name will appear above the movie title. In order to make bank at the box office, movies must have anywhere from one major  star to multiple minor stars as headliners for the film. 

With the upcoming movie The Benchwarmers, it takes Jon Heder, David Spade and Rob Schneider’s name before the title to equal the box office weight of one Jim Carrey in Fun with Dick and Jane. With that in mind, we’ve put together a series of equations that show how star power matches up when it comes to headlining a movie. After the jump, find out who can carry a movie on their own and who needs the cushion of other stars to share a headline with…

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Tucker Carlson Likes Tequila


Remember that time when Jon Stewart went on Crossfire and laid the smack down on Tucker Carlson?  Well, it seems that Tucker is now taking things a little easier by hosting guests like "MySpace Celebrity and Fashion Model" Tila Tequila.  Something tells me she might not quite have a wit as formidable as Stewart’s. Can I get a WTF?

A Horrible Development



Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz says he will not be continuing with the series, meaning in all likelihood, the show is dead. The twenty-five people who watched it, myself included, are devastated by the news.
