Awesometown – FOX Cut
May 2005, The Dudes were hired to create a pilot for FOX. This cut
includes live stage segments and laugh track in hopes of appealing to a
broad audience. TRT: 19 Minutes 

The Lonely Island boys are absolutely awesome. Jack Black introduces the pilot and it’s probably something you should save on your computer knowing FOX’s habit of ruining good shows. Enjoy.[watch now]

“Cambodian Baby Hawkapoo”



NYTimes: "Maddox, the adopted son of Angelina Jolie, is a regular face in the
pages of Star and Us Weekly, and in the way of so many trends born in
the pages of celebrity magazines, he has done for Mohawks what Harry

cut-to-the-scalp movement among Hollywood offspring that now includes
the children of Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany: their sons Kai, 8,
and Stellan, 1. Et tu, Natalie Portman?"

Lohan vs Duff Part 5,329



Lindsay Lohan claims that she tried to end the
infamous feud between her and Hilary Duff, but, she says, she got hung
up on when she called.

“I called her last
week, and I was like, ‘Do you wanna hang out?’ And her sister hung up
the phone on me!” Lohan told the magazine Australian. “I don’t like
having enemies  …  and there’s the saying, keep your friends close
but your enemies closer.”

Lindsay, did…did you try kissing her? I suggest that method be tried before making pesky phone calls. After all, she is the Most Wanted woman in North America.[MSN article]

We’ve had to deal with a lot of high-profile celebrity breakups, but few have been as rough as the heart-wrenching demise of Laguna Beach’s
very own Jason and Jessica, also known as Jassica (or Jesson, whichever
you prefer). I know what you’re thinking. Are they really over and
done? Is there such a thing as love at first TRL appearance anymore? If
they can’t make it work, what hopes do the rest of us have?

It was a sad day of television when Jason and Jessica  of Laguna Beach parted ways but thank goodness TVgasm is here for us with a tissue…and some laughs…at their expense. Enjoy.[link]
