You know, I don't care if Scarlett Johansson sings like Michigan J. Frog, she's *still* dreamy. (Liz, can we link to a picture of her somewhere? - It's for Gene, of course.)

Scarlett's havin' a tough week.

I don't want to know any more about Charlie Sheen's sperm. Denise & Charlie just need to shut up.

Did John Mayer fire his publicist or something. He used to be the figurative fair-haired-boy and now he's just...icky.

Keanu dating Winona...whoa.

Other directors whose work Spike Lee has a problem with:

Alfred Hitchcock ("Why were all the birds in 'The Birds' black?")

Chuck Jones ("Hardly *ever* saw a brother in those Bugs Bunny 'toons.")

Michael Curtiz ("Sam was treated like a houseboy in 'Casablanca'.")

Steven Spielberg ("B*tch owes me $6 for sitting through 'Jurassic Dump 2'.")

What will lesson one be at Sharon Osborne's charm school?

a) That there is not actually a legal requirement to comply with the request "Hey, you in the blue, show us your [breasts]" when it's shouted from a passing pickup truck.

b) That a lady chews gum with her mouth *and* legs closed.

c) That, unlike the custom when he is touring with Poison, it is not customary to orally service the rest of the crew before meeting Mr. Michaels.

byoolin, you know the old saying, you can't have fillet mignon every night, sometimes you just want a hamburger. Another example of this would include Hugh Grant with Elizabeth Hurley.

Also, I second the motion for a link to Scarlet Johannson.

aaaiiighh!

See, I thought that the "mousy goodness" in reference to the 2pm Celebritology chat was going to be a link to a picture of Andy with a (real/toy) mouse. And I got sent to that Winehouse-Doughery YouTube clip!

(shudder)
(and, thanks to all of the posters yesterday who watched and left comments so I didn't have to)

BTW, didn't we already know that Harrison waxes for charity? To paraphrase another poster previously wrote that to raise consciousness about the rainforests, donating his (ahem) "wood" would be a more appropriate sentiment.

I'd much rather listen to an album of Michigan J. Frog singing Tom Waits (to which I have a ticket to the Houston show. . .in your faces Celebritology commenters). But with this,
I've got to side with the critics. ScarJo can't sing her way out of a paper bag. That said, I still think she's lovely and I like her films.

Liz Kelly, we're all dying to know the Celebritology odds on whose album comes out first:

(a) Courtney Love's ("Nonsense! I Never Scrapped Anything")

(b) Guns'n'Roses' ("Chinese Democracy")

(c) Scarlett Johansson ("Scarlett Johannson Sings Michigan J. Frog's Greatest Hits (Liz, can we link to a picture (for Gene)?)")

Posted by: byoolin | May 22, 2008 10:18 AM | Report abuse

OK, men, men, men

when you say "neck to knee," do you stop shaving or waxing or whatever at the knee? So you are at hte pool and you are totally smooth from your hairline (on your head) down to your knee and then all of a sudden your hairy lower legs are hanging out down there all by themselves? This just creates a really goofy picture in my mind...

I love that Denise Richards' new reality show is called "Denise Richards: Its Complicated". No Denise, its not complicated. You married a notorious cheater and then flipped out when he cheated and then decided to steal your best friend's husband who was no prize either (except he's going to be the new "prize" on Rock of Love). Not complicated just stupid.

All this Micheal J. Frog talk reminds me of when Kermit would be a reporter on Seasame Street and say he was "Kermit THE Frog" as if "the" was his middle initial. Hey - its not weird that I remember that right? I just really dig those muppets.

Posted by: sjcpeach | May 22, 2008 10:24 AM | Report abuse

Wow, that Post review of ScarJo's CD is something:

"Most every track filters Waits's sepia-toned, Charles-Bukowski-at-the-circus style dissolute folk through an echo chamber of 1985 shoegazer reverb, with Johansson's possibly quite lovely voice buried underneath, like an afterthought. The end result is strange but not unpleasant. It's like what would happen if Mazzy Star's Hope Sandoval decided to release a solo album assembled by a group of carnival barkers and hobos."

Come again? I have absolutely no idea what that means! "Charles-Bukowski-at-the-circus"? "Mazzy Star"? Clearly I've been spending too much time listening to boy band music to read intelligent music critiques. Would someone please lend me a Tom Waits CD so I can at least begin to try and understand that review?

I saw Larry King Live the night she was on. She did not bring up Charlie, Larry did, she answered. She was very polite and she did discuss Heather.

sjcpeach, if my parents had let me (they wouldn't), I would have had the Kermit the Frog/ Calvin Klein poster on my wall as a kid. He was totally crush-worthy. And that thing he did when introducing celebrities?? "And now, please welcome Julie Andrews!! Yaaaaaaa!" (waving his little froggy arms.) Adorable.

Hey, wait a minute... I'm a grown-up now. I have the internet and a credit card. In five minutes, (well, more if I have to mimize the web to simulate the appearance of work) I can have a Kermit poster on its way to me. And compared to my pre-teen self, I'm totally loaded. I can spring for overnight shipping if I want! Take that, Mom!!

So, um, yeah. In conclusion, I don't think you're weird.

Kermit THE Frog! Thank you for the sweet memory. How I loved Kermit and the Muppets. I really did cry when Jim Henson died - I mean, who cries just 'cause a stranger dies? But I did for him.

I actually got a little ticked at my toddler that he didn't appreciate the muppets on the deep level I do. He does dig the Fraggle Rock, though. And all the muppet-lovers should check out "The Upside Down Show", it's done by the Jim Henson workshop people, and it's something my son and I both love.
Sample Dialog:
Shane: Are you thinking what I'm thinking?
David: (looking at the camera) Yeah, you, me, Dave, tonight, Dancing, 10,000 monkeys?

It's much funnier than I've described it.

"Harrison Ford gets chest waxed for charity.."

Excellent for you, Mister Ford. But certain death for me.

If I got waxed, I'd have to check into a burn unit for skin grafts.

Here's a metaphysical question:

If his name is Harrison Ford, why did he drive a '55 Chevy in American Graffiti?

Here's a better metaphysical question:

Would Byoolin leave Calista Flockhart for Maire-Anne Thidaud?

Good thing I read the Harrison Ford link before posting. I had this vision of those celebrity auction fundraisers, and was wondering if the high bidder got Harrison's leftover hairy wax paper strips. He probably couldn't even autograph the thing.

Sarah, why does the movie have to be about injustice to blacks in order to have black charactors. Blacks served in the South Pacific during WWII.

"Well, if the shoes fit.."

Especially if they're open-toed shoes.

sjcpeach,

I've got the muppet movies, I'm trying the track down the Muppet Show dvd and I joined a Facebook group on Sesame Street classics. Trust me you're not weird.

Muppet Show on DVD is usually at Target (I'm sure others, too), Seasons 1 and 2 are out. Good times.

Shania:Marie-Anne, I'm with byoolin's assessment. WTF?

Spike Lee is tiresome. The Coen brothers' graphic-ness is metaphorical. They are brilliant filmmakers. But I'll give Spike props for "Inside Man"--it was so refreshing to see him apply his skills to something that wasn't trying to lecture about race.

Saw a trailer for the Las Vegas movie and I think Cameron Diaz should shoot the cinematogrpher--she is horribly lit and looked terrible. Hell, she looks better in full makeup outside in the cruel sunlight than she did on screen.

Going to see Indy on Sunday--maybe I'll forget the waxing story by then...

Target you say. I never even bothered to look there. It's gonna be a muppets and Hugh weekend.

Someone needs to wax those Muppets.

"Waxing your muppet" for some reason reminds me of this Avenue Q/World of Warcraft mash-up:

Thank you, yellojkt. It's been awhile since I've seen that one. Definitely a YouTube classic.

Ooo. Season 3 is out!

And I'm SO happy the Muppet Christmas Carol is on DVD (don't know how I missed that)! I can stop watching it on VHS. Now if they'd only bring back the John Denver Christmas special...

Okay...Back to celebs. :0)

This whole thing about the Twain split has my poor brain then coming up with the refrain about never the twain shall meet. I'm being bothered with all kinds of bad imagery that I wish would just go away.

I hope Steven Tyler is successful in his rehab. But even if he is, he's still fugly.
