(Most of) Michael Jackson turns 50 today...

*******

Actually, I think *some* of Jacko might turn 50 today, but *most* of him is only about 14.

Happy Friday everyone!
Hey byoo, are you and yours ok - I just read a story about a chemical plant explosion in WV...

The review (http://www.nfreview.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=1175371) of the Jessica Simpson concert makes me sad that I missed it:

"It might be unfair calling Jessica Simpson’s show... a train wreck. At some point, a train knows where it’s going.

"How bad was it?

"Before the new song “Man Enough,” she said her man must be ready for anything - including the possibility she’s pregnant with an alien.

".... [T]his crowd was here only for her. And they paid $70 a ticket for the privilege.

"Armed with that confidence, Simpson opened up about God, divorce and, um, flatulence.

“I do pass gas a lot,” she said. “I guarantee it smells like roses.”

So I take it David Duckovny is of the method acting school?

I'm actually going to give my condolences to Lindsey. It's hard to lose a grandfather. I can't snark on her today.

However, others I can snark:

Daddy Yankee, are you gonna take that from Fat Joe (by the way I have no idea who either of you are).

Jessica Simpson passes gas a lot? Is she is WV today?

I got my money on Shannon Doherty to knock out Jennie Garth in the second round.

As for byoolin being OK, he's north of Charleston where that explosion took place, so he should be OK.

The Sean Penn piece describes Penn as "The hottest actor at the Democratic National Convention." Does the author mean he is "hot" in terms of "radioactive, nobody will touch him without treated gloves"? Surely the author can't mean that he is "hot" in terms of physical attractiveness or box office potential. I can't believe that Sean Penn is the "hottest" piece of man flesh at the DNC (especially judging from his woolly-faced photo.) I'm a little disappointed in the WashPost staff, that they didn't fact check the article with their resident Celebritologist before posting. I know Liz could've given them an accurate description/ranking of Penn for their article ("the fourth hottest male Hollywood actor here if he doesn't open his mouth...and shaves the animal growing on his face.") Really, just shoddy reporting.

So, all those porn tapes that Mulder had... I can only suppose that wasn't a quirk developed by the X-Files writers, but something Duchovny brought to the role.

Damn, I had all night to come up with something good about David Duchovny and I got nothun'. Though, couldn't they have just said "personal issues"? This is way more than I ever wanted to know about a celebrity. Sometimes its good to hold back. I'm off today, so have a great holiday peoples.

Good catch, pebbles.

I'm actually impressed by Fat Joe's interview. Regardless of whether I agree with him on all points, he's offered evidence for his assertion.

I think that's the clincher with the celebrity endorsements.

Fat Joe- I support Obama because of his position on the war, health care, etc.

Anne Hathaway- I support Obama even though I fear being burned by guys like him.

Backup aside, does Fat Joe have any place calling anyone a sellout?

Wow, even in dealing with the death of a family memeber the Lohan clan is a cancer on society.

10 bucks syas Duchovney is secretly making sure there aren't any aliens hiding at the clinic.

The David Duchovney story is pretty sad, actually.
As is all that stuff going on in Lindsay Lohan's life. I mean none of it is her fault...her dad is whackdoodle, her uncle is scum, her grandfather died and she can't even properly mourn him because of her crazy family. There will be papz all over the wake and funeral trying to get a glimpse of her.
This Morning Mix is a bummer. I hope there's a rootin' tootin' (er...not that kind of tootin', Jess) Friday list in store...

Heard on the radio that it is also John McCain's birthday today. Maybe he and Jacko can get together and party later. I live only 30 min from Dayton and I'm not hearing much excitement being drummed up for McCain's announcement of his VP running mate. Maybe Jacko can help him out a bit.

So this sex addition of David Duchovny's, now I'm curious, Is Tea not enough for him?? (I am assuming that he has to fulfill his needs outside matrimony or this wouldn't be a problem). Anyone remember many, many years ago in that really short runned sitcom where she was the dumb, sex kitten? Granted this does not equal Clooney's girl friend cheating on him, but Tea is a serious hottie. What gives?

First Heincer and now Daddy Yankee, wow just wow. Also in what universe is Daddy Yankee the king of reggaeton? Did Don Omar stop making music?

Chris Ciccone, get thee over to the Friday list. Seriously, you spent your entire adult life living off your sister and now you want fame too? Go do something famous yourself instead of telling stories about other famous people. That's the paps job.

No, Jessica's concert tour has to go really well and be extended so she stays away during football season.

Wow, the oogey factor in today's Morning Mix is extremely high! Sex addiction, squirting breast milk, Jessica Simpson's gas, and Michael Jackson, all at once. I may need to lie down in a dark room for a while.

-I don't believe Madonna would have squirted breast milk at anyone. Surely she'd have bottled and sold it instead.

-Does the D. Duchovny article say whether he was addicted to sex with other people? Maybe he just checked into the clinic for treatment for severely chapped hands.

You know, I read the posts about the Jessica Simpson concert, but for some reason, my brain just filed it in the "Britney Spears did something crazy again" pile. And then I saw this.

Has Jessica declared her support for either Presidential candidate yet? Given her roots (no, I don't mean her hair) and her efforts to "reinvent" herself as a country star, I'm thinking she's more likely to lean McCain's way.

Perhaps Ol' John should tap her as a policy advisor to his campaign. They could explore her frequent flights of flatulence as an alternative energy source.

Complications
From entry re priapism:

Potential complications include ischemia, clotting of the blood retained in the penis (thrombosis), and damage to the blood vessels of the penis which may result in an impaired erectile function or impotence. In serious cases, the ischemia may result in gangrene, which could necessitate penis removal.

These are the mothers who feel their daughters are reflections of them and any imperfection must be stripped away lest they be seen as imperfect. Like this charming specimen:

“I had a mother who brought her daughter in, pulled up her shirt and asked us to wax the girl’s back. The hair didn’t seem to be bothering the little girl, but the mom was embarrassed and wanted it done,” Fisher recounted. “I told the mom to wait until the child wanted it, but she refused.” The girl, Fisher added, was 6 years old.
