Dropping acid boosts self-esteem? I thought it made your hands melt. The one guy I ever saw on acid tried jumping out a third-story window (and failed) then was busy working on climbing a cinderblock wall when the paramedics arrived.

Selma Blair says:
"But if I was in the right frame of mind, in a pleasant, creative, chilled-out space, with just the right amount delivered by an Amsterdam technician, that would be incredible."

and sunnydaze says:
OR, the walls could melt and monsters could follow you around and the furniture or shrubbery or whatever could be out to get you or you might decide that you really don't like and don't need that toe/finger/eye etc.

Don't get me wrong, I spent some time during the college years following the Greatful Dead and I never saw anyone try to jump from a balcony, but I did see plenty of bad trips and very little "boosted self esteem."

Just a pet peeve of mine regarding proofreading, but in the Heath Ledger article they AP writer wrote the Ledger's last film was 'The Dark NIGHT'. Is it too much to ask that they manage to get the name right of the biggest movie of the year?

Advice for Katie:

1.Stop allowing Tom to dress you, using scary box in basement from 1982 (see stripey-hangy shirt).
2. Bras are very useful undergarments that keep your boobs from hanging around your waistband.
3. If Tom puts on fairy wings, tutu, and starts dancing around with turkey baster, lock self in closet.

The perfect beach accessory for your inflatable companions:

Blow-up church looks to lure beachgoers
Reuters Aug 6, 2008

ROME - Catholic nuns and priests in Italy are following their flocks to the beach this summer, establishing an inflatable church and a beach-convent in the sands to lure sunbathers.

The 30-metre (98 ft) long blow-up church -- staffed by priests ready to take confession -- will debut on Saturday on the Adriatic coast in the Molise region, an organizer said.

"There will be four or five people singing, with music about God," said Chiara Facci with Catholic group Sentinelli del Mattino. Night time activities, which will not include Mass, will run from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m.

The first attempt to inaugurate the inflatable church last month on the holiday island of Sardinia failed after strong winds forced organizers to relocate, she said.

Big cities like Rome and Milan empty in August, when Italians head to the beach for summer holidays, leaving streets empty and many businesses closed. Churches are hardly immune, and also see their congregations thin.

On the Mediterranean coast, nuns from a convent near the southern Italian city of Naples have relocated to beach cabins to join holidaymakers saying the rosary. An adjoining altar was set up under two tents.

"The concept of a beach-convent is something that is appreciated by vacationers and the nuns themselves," priest Antonio Rungi, who helped spearheaded the initiative, told Italian news agency ANSA.

People who flip burgers are honest people who work an honest wage -- you know, as opposed to, say, many U.S. teens, who can't be bothered to work at all because fast-food jobs are somehow beneath them.

Stop dissing people who work an honest day for an honest wage. There is nothing to criticize here.

I think that we have the top two comments of the week from epony and Bawlmer. Perhaps we could combine them to have a body wearing edible Morman underwear found at L'il Kim's party.

Lizards,

Did you all notice that since the software upgrade we are all making typos and using poor grammar?

Maybe the software needs a patch.

Also, I agree Sas - those two comments are for the ages. (glad you snuck back)

Anyone else notice the similarity between Britney Spears' movie "Crossroads" about three girls on a roadtrip and her potentially playing a part in the remake of "Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill" about three strippers on a road trip, albeit with a lot more killing, and mayhem? A good friend of mine just pointed this out to me. Maybe Quentin Tarantino is not remaking "Faster Pussycat, kill, kill" but actually remaking "Crossroads" in his own sick twisted way.

"Just be glad you didn't forget the second m."

If I did, I'd be writing about myself. That would be egotesticle. And stoopid, two.

Hi Liz,

Well, I guess that must mean that I'm our of a job. Who needs a body image/self esteem expert for girls when Selma Blair has the cure? Why didn't I think of telling girls to take acid all these years?

Of course, Selma's hands, which she claims is the only part of her body she likes, would look like big oven mitts when she took the acid, but with the inflated ego that goes with LSD, she might just think that's the best thing ever!

Celebrities can say the dumbest things.

Talk to you soon-

I was going to snark that Selma Blair's head is really large compared to her body, which somehow led me to remember the discussion awhile back of "fiveheads".

You know who else has a fivehead besides Christina Ricci (who I like, BTW)? Nicole Richie. She has a fivehead and she looks like a bug.

Ah, I feel better. Ponies.

jake e. poo, Anderson Cooper is the anchor of both your heart and mine. I just love the fact that he said what we were all thinking. (The bit on Regis and Kelly is a hoot to watch- you can see Kelly desperately trying to cover up the red hot truth Anderson's serving up, and he's just not having any of it.)

Kelly: "They’re obviously a multi-talented family...the kids sing, and they perform..."
Anderson: (shrugs, folds arms) "Maybe that was in the episode I didn’t see."

Like I said. Anchor of my heart.

I think the diss was a burger flipper who pretends to make 500K...not a burger flipper trying to support a family.

Or maybe, more correctly, I am not Anderson Cooper's typo.

Bruce Ivins' motivation for mailing lethal anthrax to Senator Leahy's and Daschle's offices may have been that they were Catholics who voted pro-choice.

Interesting moral compass.

From byoolin:
Karaoke Note to Selma Blair: Timothy Leary's dead. (No, no no no, he's outside, looking in.)

******

There are benefits to reading the posts late in the day. Now I'm only stuck with the Moody Blues song looping thru my head for half the day, rather than a full workday. Thanks, byoolin!

(This is when I have to resort to my trick of thinking about that "zoom, zoom, zoom" car commercial to break the loop. But, then I'm stuck with the zoom. . .)

Thanks Alex. Now I'm stuck with the zoom.... I'll have to dig up an episode of Monk, to get rid of the zoom, but then I'll have that jungle out there.

I saw that Mr. Blackwell has been hospitalized. Two mean comments. 1) The WaPo photo with the above article shows Mr. B's *dog* wearing an absurd outfit. Just where does he get off criticizing people's attire when he dresses his pooch in such a fashion fur pas? 2) When Mr. B dies, do you suppose they'll lay him out in his coffin wearing some hideous Liberace outfit out of spite?

Alex, you're wrong about no-one being around. And I hope you're right about Mr. Blackwell's attire for his trip into The Great Beyond.
