Katie Holmes got $5 million and a career boost in exchange for 5 years of servitude and one kid she’s forced to raise in an undisclosed location.

Debbie Rowe got $5 million, a Beverly Hills mansion and a $900,000 a year salary in exchange for two kids who she’s not allowed to see.

So who do you think got the better deal?

One More Reason to Love Julianne Moore



Not only is she a great actress, a beautiful woman, very smart, and apparently a good mother, but Julianne Moore can talk basketball with Samuel L. Jackson! Plus, she loves American Idol and even called in to vote during the first season! (Yes, I’m watching The View.) By the way, she totally ruled in The Ladies Man. You should check it out.



And Halle Berry presents " The Reason You Rented Swordfish from Blockbuster last weekend."

Your turn.

Dick Cheney: Live at Folsom Prison!


Cheney_song_1 Vice President Dick "Buckshot" Cheney kept his word to the inmates at California’s maximum security Folsom State Prison. He played a one hour set with his band "Dickie and The Trigger Happy Birdie Killers". The set received a luke warm reception until Cheney launched into his new, as yet unreleased, single "Go F***Yourself". During the guitar solo the Vice President thrilled the assembled audience by producing a rifle and opening fire. "He seems angry. Very angry" one inmate said "I mean, I always thought that the American people didn’t like to vote for angry people but…Man, that dude is angry!" I managed to obtain a tape of the performance and am proud to present it here….

Okay, I realize I’ve posted a lot about Dick Cheney this week… some might say I’ve made more bad Dick jokes than Jay Leno… but cut me some slack, it’s not every day the Vice President shoots a man in the face. At least, I don’t think it is. We’ll never really know.

Well, this is my last Dick Cheney post, I promise. It’s a good one. Click the link and listen to the song.

You So Crazy



I need help again. How many times have you heard in a movie: That’s crazy. So crazy, it just might work! Okay, you don’t here that many times any more, but I was thinking, What are some actual things that were so crazy that they worked? I’ll start: Ashlee Simpson. Not particularly talented, not particularly pretty, already has a famous sister (who is talented and pretty). You would have to be crazy to think you could make her a star. But lo and behold, she’s a big star and has even appeared on the covers of fashion magazines. So what else can you think of that was so crazy that it worked?

Commentary: MTV’s Fat Camp



If anyone managed to catch MTV’s Fat Camp, a reality show that takes place over a summer at a Poconos weight loss camp, you may have noticed it’s hard to be fat and in high school.  But it’s even harder when you have a camera following you around when you’re getting undressed.

In last night’s MTV special, the directors and producers got a little too documentary-style when it came to profiling these obese kids. They featured lots of unflattering bathing suit shots, followed one heavy-set girl around while she was buck naked and employed the Celebrity Fit Club method of weight loss display, dressing the kids in skivvies to reveal their bulging bodies before and after. All in all, pretty much a fat high school kid’s worst nightmare.

While the show taught me that fat kids have the same problems as skinny kids (except they’re also fat), it seems that these kids now have another problem: the whole world has seen them half-naked. MTV just may have guaranteed these kids a year’s worth of painful, public wedgies.

LISTEN UP: You Daily Dose of the Best Week Ever Part Deux



  • Dirty Little Secrets makes me feel dirty. If their song Got a Feeling had a smell, it would be a blend of busch beer, stale basement and hot guy sweat.
  • Said the Gramaphone has a Shelley Short lullaby called "The Sunny Side." It sure do wish I were sitting on a porch swing with a glass of pink lemonade and working knowledge of how to play the ukelele.
  • Happy Bullets’s Brit pop ditty The Vice and Virtue Ministry explores class heirarchy in a society that pits royals against the working class but mostly it  reminds me of Crowded House
  • Diddywah hosts this strange Grace Slick-ish late 60’s inner-journey by Fairport Convention called Tam Lin.
  • We’ve got tracks from Gun’s n Roses’ Chinese Democracy. After so much anticipation, it’s time to rock in the free world.
