SIZZLER: Keith Urban Mocks Tom Cruise?



Here’s something by the ol’ reliable National Ledger:

Nicole Kidman‘s honey Keith Urban is having a bit of fun at Nic’s-ex Tom Cruise according to one published report.  The country hunk apparently mocks Cruise in private, poking fun at his acting and of course mimicking his couch jumping antics from last year’s Oprah and Jay Leno appearances…. Urban is no Tom Cruise fan and reportedly refuses to meet girlfriend Nicole Kidman’s ex-hubby.

I don’t know why he shouldn’t make fun of Cruise. Everyone else does.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: The Cleaning Hunk



New York, New York: the city that never sleeps, a melting pot of art, culture and commerce, a place that can overcome monumental adversity.  But there’s a new reason to love the city and that’s the local commercial for the Cleaning Hunk. Airing only in the tri-state area and only during daytime TV, Cleaning Hunk advertises a new contest offering women "a one year vacation from cleaning." Nobody is really sure  why they’re advertising, what the catch is or whether male-stripper house cleaners even exist, but who cares. The ad is pure Chippendale’s gold.

LISTEN UP: Your Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever



  • From WFMU, The Incomparable Rutland Junior High School Ensemble with "Do the Hustle" It’s sort of like Langley gone disco.
  • From comboplate, Voice of East Harlem gives us "Cashing In." Just right for a Friday afternoon.
  • From The Ten Thousand Things, Aaron LaCrate with "Blow." Amanda Blank (I think) rules this track. 
  • From Making Flippy Floppy, DEV2.O with "Freedom of Choice." Just had an uncontrollable urge.
  • From Lupatarkastaja, Yakuza‘s “Cancer of Industry” the " most acceptable track of the record, so it’s good way to dive in to this hybrid of King Crimson, Napalm Death, System of a Down and all that jazz." Amen. 
  • From my new favorite dead horse to flog, The Soul Club, Solomon Burke‘s version of "Maggie’s Farm." And that’s all for me this week!

SIZZLER: Brangelina’s Italian Wedding?



While the jaded American press is convinced that Angelina and Brad are already married, those fun-loving, optimistic Italians are still holding out for a wedding invitation.

According to Italian press, the couple will be married on a "traditional boat" in Lake Como on March 18th. In the meantime the Paparazzi is keeping a close eye on George Clooney’s Lake Como Villa. You can watch footage of the couple and read more about the story if you speak Italian. If you don’t you’ll have to settle for pictures of the couple after the jump and a lifetime of mispronouncing ‘mozzarella.’

While You Were Re-Shuffling Your Playlist



  • Looks like Friends spin-off, Joey, is being canceled. I guess NBC hasn’t heard of the golden rule.
  • Leif Garrett ordered to stay in rehab. Reality show producers foiled again.
  • Ben Affleck and Jen Garner’s neighborhood fraught with crime. Their decision to play crime fighting superheros in Daredevil finally making sense. 
  • Keira Knightly looks glum as she poses for the cover of Vogue. We know Keira, we miss Tom Ford too. 
  • Reese and Ryan’s marriage is not so perfect after all. He’s jealous of her career, she’s jealous of his eyebrows.

SIZZLER: Kevin Lays Down the Law


Britney_3 So everyone from The Sun to The Star to Perez Hilton (ok maybe just them) has confirmed that Britney is pregnant. So doesn’t that mean she can indulge in some pregnancy cravings? Not according to Kevin. The poppa zao of Preston, reportedly called a restaurant in Hawaii where the two had reservations and demanded in advance that they don’t bring his wife any dessert.

Poor Kevin. No one told him the first time around that Britney’s extra 30 pounds wasn’t tirimisu, it was baby.

This week, their guest is the uber-funny comedian Patton Oswalt, of Comedians of Comedy and King of Queens fame.  He’s one of the funniest mofo’s I’ve ever seen, but is his music any good?  Read the article and find out!

As always, when you’ve finished reading, shuffle your iPods and post the results in the comments section.  Just to keep you honest, I’ll post mine first:

2.  Elliott Smith – "Angeles"
3.  Stereolab – "Lo Boob Oscillator"
4.  Bravo Silva – "400 Days"
5.  Magnolia Electric Company – "The Dark Don’t Hide It"
