After last night’s episode of Survivor, I have developed my first ever Reality crush. Shane Powers, is a 30-something father, with cool tattoos, a job as a Marketing Executive and an uncanny resemblance to Tommy Lee. He’s also got a bit of a temper. Last night Powers, who quit his 3 pack a day habit when he arrived in Panama, spent the entire episode jonesing for a cigarette and cursing the day he ever agreed to do the show. In fact he asked his teammates to vote him off.
I was smitten by his candor and his seeming apathy towards screen time. So I decided to do a quickie Google search to find out more about his job as a makerter. You may already know this, but it seems that he’s been working overtime. Check out Powers’ resume after the jump:
According to this, if you want Paris Hilton to attend your event, you better get a jacuzzi:
Paris Hilton reportedly threatened to pull out of the Brits unless she had a Jacuzzi in her dressing room. The sexy socialite, who is supposed to be reporting from the red carpet at the awards bash later this month, was allegedly ready to boycott the show if she didn’t get the special bath.
Some might say it’s the worst idea for a cartoon T-shirt since those ridiculous ghetto Bugs Bunny & Taz shirts from the early 1990’s. Others might say it’s downright criminal. I say, do they have any mediums left?
Shopmetrospy thinks that if you don’t buy this T-shirt of the prophet Mohammed with bomb on his head, the terrorists have won… and we’re not JUST talking about the war on fashion here.
You could read all about the controversy by clicking here. My favorite line is "Critics of the Mohammed T-shirt say this is a perfect example of why Americans are hated around the world." See, and the whole time I thought it was because of Fred Durst. I was way off.
Now you can sleep until noon and not miss anything:
- ABC and Showtime are battling it out to be the next network to cancel Arrested Development.
- Restaurant critic Gael Greene writes about her affair with Clint Eastwood in her memoir Insatiable. She said that the ambience was satisfactory and recommends the fish.
- Grody to the Maddox: Angelina Jolie wants her son in the room with her when she gives birth. (National Ledger, via A Socialite’s Life)
- Brokeback Baseball? (The Movie Blog)
- Love Monkey pulled. ABC and Showtime will not be fighting over this one. (E!)
- Quote from Gwyneth: "Hollywood films these days are just so bad. They used to be kind of good like Top Gun or something, but now they’re just terrible." (Hollywood Rag)
- Finally, some sad news: Franklin Cover, who played Tom Willis on The Jeffersons, has died. He was 77. (AP)
Sharon Stone will lose cutody of her five year old son for one year, according to a bizzare divorce agreement with husband Phil Bronstein. Because of her hectic schedule, shooting five movies back to back, this is just not a good year for her to be a mother. She’s too busy taking care of teenage boys across the country. (Check out the Basic Instinct 2 trailer)
Unless you slept through the day yesterday, you’d know that the big news (that wasn’t Britney-related) was that our government thwarted a potential terrorist attack on Los Angeles’ US Bank Tower in 2002. Go team!
Now, we didn’t cover it here– because like I said, it wasn’t Britney-related– but naturally all the real, credible news services did. And so did Fox News.
To illustrate how devastating this attack would have been, Fox did the only thing they could: they showed clips from the Will Smith/ Jeff Goldblum action flick Independence Day. Really. Seriously. They did. Honestly, I couldn’t make that up if I tried.
I know what you’re thinking: "Wow! That’s exploitative!" Or "They really crossed the line this time." Or "Hey! I haven’t seen that movie in a while, maybe I should Netflix it." Whatever. Well, guess what: you’re way off base. This is something that should be taken seriously. Because I trust Fox News, and if Fox News is insinuating that somehow the terrorists have enlisted the help of alien space ships to attack the United States of America, I believe them.
Fair and Balanced. And movie buffs. Fox News.
Check out this awesome t-shirt design combining two things that have about as much business being married as Tom and Katie:
Emo Care Bears!
When he does the "Care Bear Stare". I wonder if his chest shoots out My Chemical Romance songs and old Hot Topic reciepts?
