Mishmash: Solange's Turn; Catwoman Casting; Caption Results

By Liz Kelly

Solange, Another Knowles Family Fashion Renegade

I'm no music critic, so I wish Solange Knowles every happiness and much success with the release of her solo album, "Sol-Angel and The Hadley St. Dreams." Even if I do fall asleep midway through reading that title and literally spat out my oat bran when I saw her album cover, in which a red-winged Solange strikes a pose in what appears to be Fred Sanford's yard. The only thing worse is this pic from Solange's official Web site. Yellow lipstick? Yeesh. Oh Solange, good thing you've got precedent on your side -- doubtless, you'll follow fellow other sisters Ali Lohan, Hayley Duff and Jamie Lynn Spears on to vast, sibling-eclipsing success.

Insta-Poll: Cher As Catwoman?

Rumor has it that Cher is under consideration for taking on the role of Catwoman in the next "Batman" installment (or, as one EW reader terms her -- "Cougarwoman.") Yes, we know -- Eartha Kitt rules and Julie Newmar, Michelle Pfieffer, Halle Berry have all tried their hand (claw?) at this purr-fect villainess in the past. But, with an eye to the future and granting that the Cher rumor is poorly sourced, at best...

Creative Captioning Results

Last week, I asked you to come up for the best caption for this adorable pic of two-year-old Suri Cruise having what appears to be a very serious exchange with her dolly.

Despite the controversy over whether or not Suri's painted fingernails were cause for alarm (they weren't), a little backsliding into pony territory and Sasquatch's funny, but ultimately in bad taste offering, the record number of submissions contained these winners:

1

"You remind me of my daddy...only taller!!" -- Happy Crew

2

"Doll, you're plastic, emotionless, and hollow. I'm going to call you 'Mommy'." -- Motley Tool

3

Following the failure of "The Love Guru," Verne Troyer concludes that his professional association with Mike Myers is a career killer and seeks to ingratiate himself with the Cruise family. -- Nick

4

"Let's do that again! But this time I wanna be the galactic overlord. YOU have to be the feeble pawn." -- Bawlmer

5

"We live in a cynical world. A cynical world. And we work in a business of tough competitors. I love you. You... complete me." -- Smitty

6

More than 20 years after inexplicably returning in the inanimate body of a baby doll, L. Ron Hubbard finally manages to make contact with a highly placed member of the Church of Scientology. -- Wasatch Tom

7

"And then the Thetans come back to Earth to take everyone to the big spaceship in the sky. And they lived happily ever after. The End." Suri reads a bedtime story to her friend. -- clw

Liz you forgot to mention Lee Meriwether as another Catwoman, although julie Newmar is my favorite.

Since I picked other for my answer here are the contenders on my short list:

Scarlet Johannson
Kate Beckinsale
Kerri Russel

My response to the picture of Solange from the website, and I quote, "AAAAHHHHHHGGGGGHHHH!!! My eyes! Someone poured acid in them!"

Liz, you did an excellent job of culling through the millions of captions, sorting the wheat from the chaff, the gold from the dross, the...you did good. I especially like numbers 1, 2, and 5. Well done, everyone.

Cher at Cougarwoman AKA Catwoman? There are no words. And, once again Lee Meriwether, is left off the list of former "Catwomen". Poor Lee...

I really have no idea who'd make a good Catwoman, pretty much anyone but Cher would I suppose, but, just for the record, the Cat Lady from the Simpsons has a name & it's Edna Abernathy.

* Cloris Leachman - shave her head and she'd be like one of those Mexican hairless cats.
* the 'ladies' from The View - put 'em all in a big burlap sack and let 'em fight their way out - first one out gets the role. Or we could just throw the thing in the river and call it a day.

That pic of Solange on her website makes her look like a Barbie doll. Not sayin' in a mean way, just in a plastic-perfect way.

I voted for Penelope Cruz because I thought she might be interesting, eh... but I never thought about Angelina (who's right now in the lead) because, let's face it, that would be no different from every other role she's done. "Angie dear, put on the black vinyl suite and stalk around a bit, lovin' it...lovin'it....Now shoot something!"
There - I said it: I think she's a bit of a one-trick pony. Now bring on the hate! ha-HA! (not pony hate, mind you, the how-dare-you-Angelina's-gonna-save-the-world-and-adopt-us-all hate.)

The Cat Lady from the Simpsons (Edna Abernathy) would be the biggest threat, as she actually hurls the cats at people. None of the other women listed have that sort of weapon.

Actually, I take that back. Cher's singing can be classified as a WMD.

Two random observations:
Solange is a beautiful name. How in the heck did Mama Knowles come up with Beyonce, and THEN Solange?

Everyone seems to be assuming that Catwoman has to be a sex fiend, and correspondingly sexy. We used to think that the Joker was just a crazy clown, then they turned him into a crazy, scary, nightmare anti-clown, to rave reviews. I don't see why the Catwoman character can't be reinvented, instead of just recycled. To that end, I'd be interested to see what they do with Cher.

And, and because I hate to disappoint, Angie rocks, she can do anything, best catwoman ever, save the world, et cetera and so on.

What happened to good spanking? All these people giving "time outs" to their kids are gonna be completely taken over by their kids when they become teenagers.

Posted by: Anonymous | August 26, 2008 9:58 AM

Depends on the kid.

My 16-y-o is a delightful young man. I can count on one hand the number of swats he got to his diapered bottom. We used time-outs until he was about 5 or 6. He would still give himself a timeout in 3rd or 4th grade if he was overwhelmed and needed a break to get himself together.

The 11-y-o needed even fewer applications of hand-to-posterior. He's a bit more challenging, still, than his big brother, but he's got those pre-adolescent hormones starting, and his big brother was similarly challenging at the same age.

My sister's kid (15) and my brother's kids (11, 9, and 6) are used to spankings as discipline. They're pretty good kids too, but they're all more aggressive than my kids are.

I don't go around second-guessing other people's discipline of their children. I got really furious with my sister (the one who has no children of her own, just a series of badly-messed-up-step-kids) for pulling that with me and my kid - she was out-of-line for hitting him after he'd turned around and headed back into the house as instructed. I know what works with my kids, and they don't need to be bullied or beaten by any adult. But I don't know what will work, or what won't work with someone else's children, so I'll stay out of it unless I'm asked.

Thanks for your response, Stepdaughter. I agree with you and also Emily that it's not so much about a name or a label as it is how we all treat each other--ideally with love and respect even in less-than-ideal situations. That is one thing I count myself particularly blessed in, I truly adore my soon to be stepchildren for the unique little people that they are.

Even with all the crap postings today, it's nice to see some actual give-and-take like this. I'm sure I'll get flamed for just saying that though.

"Responding to a tantrum is actually, in everything I have read and heard (mainly from doctors) absolutely the wrong thing to do. Ignoring the kid is the best. yes, sometimes that is not possible, but the kid is trying to get a reaction, so if you ignore them, then it is the best thing."

--I think I speak for 80% of people, but I find it very offensive when I'm shopping say at, Target, and some parent thinks it's best to ignore her screaming 2 year old child while she's continues to cruise up and down an aisle with her crying screaming child following behind her.
Or a father who ignores his daughter's cries for a toy while standing in a check out lane because he doesn't want to lose his space in line.

How the hell is the child suppose to learn not to throw tantrums? Many children have energy like the Energiser Bunny. Even if you walk away or don't react to it, they will keep on crying because they are upset about not getting their way.

He/she needs to get help now too! What is wrong with someone who simply criticizes on what other people write and has nothing to add to the "conversation"?

Posted by: About Anonymous | August 26, 2008 2:32 PM

Time outs NEVER worked for my son. My mother insided upon using them and I swear my son started becoming anti-social. Counting worked some time at least until he was 3 or 4.

But what worked all of the time for me was to let my son know that if he did A that B would happen. I then made sure that if he experienced the B results every time he did A. This was for good and bad things.

By the time he was a teenager, he had many years of knowing that A=B and that if he liked and/or wanted be he would do A.

I feel people use sugar as a scape goat. Many times my son just acted up because he was bored. Children should be out running and playing in unstructured environments as well as using their brains to create playscapes. One of my son's favourite playscape was to play hockey in the olympics. He would imagine our backyard as the olympic arena and he would run around with his hockey stick and a ball, shooting into a bucket to score the gold medal winning goal.

Kids also need far more sleep than what many parents give them these days. Kids act up when they are tired, heck so do adults. Kids need at least 9 or 10 hours of sleep each day. The younger kids need even more.

Bottom line each child is different and like cars your mileage may vary. It is best to keep stiff spine, an open mind and be very very consistent.

Posted by: sierra | August 26, 2008 2:33 PM

How were you people raised? Did you have time outs? How did your parents handle your misbehaviors? Did it work? Why not try tried and true methods?

Neither my brother nor I ever had a time out, nor were we physically punished in any way. We'd get the occasional, "wait til your father gets home" which worked well because we didn't want to disappoint both parents. Perhaps we were inordinately well-behaved children. We had a SAHM who treated us like people, not things; we ate all meals together and had conversation while we did so; we went to the playground together and it was as much fun for our parents as it was for us. Never were we forced to participate in extracurricular activities just because our parents wanted to get us out of their hair for a while or to distract us. And we grew up to be thoughtful, educated, non-smoking, non-drug-using, adults without criminal records.

How many of you spend quality time with your kids, getting to know them?

What a bunch of ageists! Who says that Catwoman has to be young? I mean, super heroes have to age, too, don't they?

What about:

Jane Fonda
Diana Rigg

Are the OP and Celebritology blogs frienemies?

Posted by: Sully | August 26, 2008 3:18 PM

***************************************

You know Sully, I don't think we ever really had anything against the OP blog. The now defunct On Balance blog is another thing. We did occasionally mock some of what they said but the people from OP we have gotten to know have all been pretty cool.

I'm pretty sure the Opers know we aren't messing with their blog. they suffer from the same troll that we suffer from.

Dame Diana Rigg has aged naturally, which automatically eliminates her from consideration by Hollywood-type casting.

I still think Cher would be boffo. The Catwoman mask would hide her done and re-done face pretty well, so she should work out just fine.

You know who would be a GREAT Catwoman-Diane Keaton!!!!

Don't you wonder who amuses themselves by cutting and pasting blog entries into blogs ALL DAY? I just find the whole thing pathetic and hope that it ends when school starts.

And I thought, dare I say his name since the election is coming up, Che, was bad

Hmm...I think all of the cross-posting and nick-naming has gotten me all confused. I don't know who's who and who belongs where anymore.

What in the world has happened to the blogs?

I feel like I have entered crazy land. Oh and the Solange picture is weird.

For anyone who watched Project Runway last week, I think you all know the answer to who should be the next Catwoman:

Varla Jean Merman. Google her. Thank me later.

Eddie Izzard. Hmmmmmmm... Brilliant!

Varla Jean Merman. What a pedigree. What a great recommendation, Snarky.

If we can't get Cher, get Varla Jean.

She even has cat eyes.

I like the suggestions for Catwoman, especially some of the more offbeat ones like Tilda Swinton and Bai Ling.

Dorkus, I know you're just baiting Liz K with your Diane Keaton pick. But better watch out; she has ways of getting even.

Catwoman Contenders:
--Famke Janssen
--Michelle Yeoh
--Tia Carrere
--Vera Jordanova (Hostel 2)
--Shannyn Sossamon (A Knight's Tale, Moonlight (she played Coraline))

Varla Jean is INSPIRED. But only if she wears the pink sailor outfit that Joe made her. Meow.

I gave this far too much thought after seeing TDK, and finally came up with Charlize Theron - she has the acting chops (and the Oscar) to equal the rest of the stellar cast, she'd look great in whatever costume they throw at her, and she fits the role better than Angelina - a little more innocent, I guess? Or rather, it's more easily ambiguous whether she's innocent or not.
