Brokeback 2: Girls Go Wild



Supermodel Kate Moss will star in Brokeback Mountain director Ang Lee’s next movie as the female lover of Charlize Theron.

Here’s a guess as to how the pitch meeting for this movie went:

  • Executive 1: So everyone loves this new gay movie thing. Who would have thought?!
  • Executive 2: Yes we’ve got to get Ang Lee to direct another one
  • Executive 1: But you know what would be even better? This may be crazy but– what if this time the gay people were two really hot girls?
  • Executive 2: That’s so crazy it just might work.

Donald Trump Plays the Blame Game



Donald Trump says that Martha Stewart should "take responsibility" for the failure of The Apprentice. Well, as the old saying goes, when you point the finger, you have three fingers pointing back at you. With that in mind I decided to look back at Donald Trump’s history of accepting responsibility for his failures. Let’s see how he did:

  • "Trump Blames Martha Stewart for Ratings Slide"
  • "Donald Trump blames Joey for Apprentice‘s slip in ratings."
  • When Trump didn’t hire both Randall Pinkett and Rebecca Jarvis on The Apprentice, he blamed it on Pinkett.

The Big OH! (and we don’t mean Sandra)



I know that wacky and unbelievable medical phenomenons are a trademark of Grey’s Anatomy. But last night’s episode which featured a teenage girl with uncontrollable orgasms was a hard pill to swallow. We’ve accepted bellies stuffed with bombs and pregnant men, but had the "Grey Matter" writers gone too far? Especially when they made us feel bad for her? But as it turns out, they weren’t lying:

It’s been documented that "A British 44-year-old woman was prone to repeated and uncontrollable orgasms every two weeks over three years.  "They were neither pleasurable nor satisfying and often came on at the wheel of a car," the doctors wrote in the Lancet medical journal.  "Sexual seizures are rare and, owing to their nature, may be presented to physicians late," wrote Dr Robert Will and Dr Paul Reading of Edinburgh’s Western General Hospital."

Nope, still don’t feel bad for her.

Video Crack: Weboggle



This may sound nerdy, but I spent a great deal of the early hours of Saturday morning playing weboggle (which is exactly what it sounds like: Boggle on the web). All you do is go here, put your name in the box, then start playing against a bunch of other people. There aren’t a lot of fancy graphics and you don’t get to kill anything, but once you start, I guarantee you’ll find yourself saying, "Just one more game and I’ll stop" about a hundred times.

Beard Blogging: McSteamy



I’m watching Grey’s Anatomy and my Tivo just caught up to real time, so instead of watching those commercials (shudder), I decided to write something about McSteamy’s beard. It’s horrible.

I just saw the end. No, George, nooooooo!

LISTEN UP: Your Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever



  • Unlike me, some of you knew Django Reinhardt before Woody Allen’s Sweet and Lowdown. But if you’re still equating him with Sean Penn, check out the real thing in this rare video from wfmu blog. Said to be one of the greatest jazz guitarist ever, the real Django was missing a couple of fingers, so it is fascinating watch him play.
  • Also check out Ellis Regina’s De Marco (The Waters of March)another video from FMU that makes the Girl from Ipanima seem like an amateur.
  • The Queen of Memphis soul has stolen my heart. Carla Thomas’ What a Fool I’ve Been is perfect for slow dancing in the basement of some seedy bar in southside Chicago in the 1950′s or so I’m told. (thanks Tricky Brains)
  • It’s writer’s week at moistworks and writer Sam Lipsyte has selected Lonley Boy by Andrew Gold. This 70′s power ballad gives new meaning to the phrase AM Gold. Lipsyste says he included it "because my babysitter used to torture me with it and because it is a case study of what happens when a robot, passing as human, enjoys a flourishing career as a session man and then lands a solo deal."
  • The Voom Blooms are a four piece band from the UK that sound kind of like the Libertines. Check out Politics and Cigarettes, a song that one blog-critic calls "a future classic rock anthem."
