The Post doesn't, so far as I know, have a fashion blog, so I'll post it here:,0,6530536.story

The boobie fairy has been very good to Angelina. I saw her at the premiere to Tomb Raider 2 and she (I guess like most movie stars) was much shorter than I imagined, but just as hot. Compare the more recent picture to one from the Tomb Raider 2 premiere on my blog:

It's not my picture, but I will vouch for the accuracy. If anything the pictures don't do her justice.

Time to restart the Miley Cyrus morning sickness rumors? All the tweener stars are doing it!

Maybe it's because both our families are from Kentucky, but I can totally picture George Clooney looking awoken and disheveled, sneaking around his compound in his nightrobe, wielding a baseball bat.

Truly, though, it don't mean a thing if you ain't got that swing.

Its kind of weird/sad how Sean Young's career turned out. I always liked her in Blade Runner.

not sure what is worse for him, wiredog: being charged with murder or being caught on film in those slippers. Certainly they should add charges for fashion crimes to the indictment.

I love the Clooney item. Shame that he's the one that has to move.

For some reason, I thought Brit's British accent was going to be of the flower girl, pre-Henry Higgins variety. She sounds like she could've been childhood friends with Posh.

Razzing aside, what she's doing is very scary, and very sad. If she ends up dying, we'll most likely have the whole thing on video, which is just awful. We'll be watching the weeks leading up to her death, knowing where it's going and asking ourselves "why didn't somebody DO something?"

Can you imagine being Angelina Jolie's OBGYN? I'm sure this would be a very, very professional doctor, who would never TELL anyone that Jolie was his/her patient, but still, in the back of their mind they'd be thinking "I am intimately familiar with the most beautiful woman in the world's hoo-ha."

Boy o boy did I miss the outfits on a red carpet. There were some nice dresses, including Angelina's and she does look preggers.

Sean Young, there's a name I haven't seen in print or heard in a long time.

Here's hoping Brit's video diaries don't appear during the times I watch tv. The last thing I need is to plop in front of the tv for that to show up.

-Beautiful dresses and hot men what I love about award season.

-Only 2 mill for Brit's sex diaries, either this sleazy guy is lying or they are really bad.

She does look good in that photo. Funny, a few years ago most of us thought she was a total loon married to Billy Bob Thorton. I guess something made her get her head a little straighter.

Umm, yello, Mizz Cyrus goes on stage around 8:30 ish, I think. Just saying, that's all. Alot of singers miss nights due to the flu.

For the first time in eons I actually stayed in my chair and WATCHED an awards show last night. I so thoroughly enjoyed the understated nature of the SAGs. I don't suppose there is any chance that future editions of the Globes, Emmys, Oscars, etc. will drop their vomit-inducing trappings? I didn't think so.

I am reminded of the moment I knew Bill Clinton was lying: When he said "I am telling you the truth here -- I did not have sex with that woman." If you have to say you are telling the truth, it is because you are a liar.

Similarly, if you have to tell me or show me how glamorous you are, it is because you are not. Last night's SAG show was the essence of glamor, simply because it did not put on all the expected trappings of glamor.

Please, Hollywood, will you follow the elegant lead of SAG? Please.

Umm, no, billowy dresses do not look good on Angelina. She is too stick thin, all you see is billowing material.

Sean John, we already thought you were crazy. Changing your name AGAIN, will only reinforce that opinion.

Diddly, my bro, I think the J.D. Powers folks have already taken the liberty.

"New Kids on the Block planning reunion" was the last thing mentioned in the Book Of Revelations before things go all to you-know-where.

What's up with the dresses? Is the strap-makers guild on strike, too? I thought we were over that particular style. It flatters so few bodies...

Did anyone who watched the SAG awards (Daniel Day Lewis made me cry, btw) think that Mickey Rooney had just lost it? I mean, demanding a standing ovation, and then all his rambling before presenting? Weird!

Quintilius thinks that Quintilius should be saddened by her recent ravings - but it only makes him gassy. Though he HAS been saddened by Bubba's recent ravings - though that is not necessarily the Bubba Brit is looking for... (wouldnt THAT be fun - wonder if she has a blue dress)

That Heath Ledger post on dark night blog was really touching. Thanks for the post.

Man... with the comments from byoolin and Quintilus, there's only one place left to go. I suggest the following readings...

Revelation 17:1-2
Revelation 18:2-5

Angelina Jolie "the most beautiful woman in the world?" Couldn't disagree more. To paraphrase what someone wrote on this blog awhile back, there's a fine line between beautiful and hideous.

The Brando family seems to have the Kennedy curse. How sad.

Can female celebrities not walk on their own? Seems like every photo I see of any of them, they're being helped by someone else to walk.

"Can female celebrities not walk on their own? Seems like every photo I see of any of them, they're being helped by someone else to walk."

In an attempt to keep the rabble off the red carpet, the entrance to events is lined with booby traps. To make sure female celebrities don't teeter into the trap doors or trigger the large rolling boulders, they are given walking buddies. This is why they all stop at certain points for photo ops -- no one wants to inadvertantly fall into the spear pit.

Daniel Day-Lewis's speech was lovely, wasn't it? He said afterward that he had been thinking about Heath Ledger since he heard of his death, and, even though Day-Lewis never worked with or even met Ledger, thought he would have liked him as a person. You could tell from the speech.

As far as Mickey Rooney is concerned, I think part of it is he's 87, and part of it is just his personality. Dana Carvey has talked about starring with Rooney in a short-lived 80s sitcom, during which Rooney would insist that he was supposed to be the funny one and that Carvey shouldn't even try to steal the spotlight.

Let you in on a little secret, women can not walk on those ridiculous 4 inch heels. Sure they look good, but they are impractical as hell, they're not so much for walking, but for looking pretty when we sit.

I too, do not think that Angelina looks good in that dress. I have never been a fan of hers, but I like some of the outfits that she has worn over the years I don't think thats her color, imho. Also, Angie looks like she has decided to get some of those colligen injections. I mean she has full lips, but they are not THAT full...

"New Kids On The Block?" Shouldn't they be "Old Guys From The Home" by now?
