Tina Fey's Sarah Palin impression was "dismissive"

Well, duhhh!


Prince William training as search and rescue pilot

Think of all the extra pilots who will have to be trained, then put their own lives at risk, in order to protect him from his vanity project. Owe the humanity. Better to stick with charity work, Wills.


Christina Applegate returns to work...

Best wishes to ya, girl! Love your show, and look forward to seeing new episodes.

How Chris Cooley's Privates Hit the Internet
And how the Internet hit back! See also: the official Deadspin explanation.

So anyhow, maybe you saw how a photo of Chris Cooley's most personal parts became available for mass Internet consumption yesterday. If you're like Chris Cooley's brother Tanner--the editor of Cooley's blog, on which this photo first appeared--here's what you might have wondered:

"Dude, why did you take a naked picture of yourself and put it on the blog?"

I just love the shoes Elle is wearing. They look perfect for an everyday ride...

At least the boy has a helmet. I regularly see a grandfather and his 4-year-old grandson in my neighborhood crossing a busy street on a bike (but the child is in a seat, not the handlebars). Neither is wearing a helmet. Makes me furious the grandfather is taking such a risk with the child (I don't care about grandpa, he should have figured it out by now). He is either ignorant or stupid. Oh wait...

Liz, I'm starting to notice an agenda about Palin here. You could just have easily included the comment that Governor Palin herself found the impersonation funny. But, no, you had to use the negative one. If you have to go all US Weekly here, maybe you shouldn't report on the Hollywood comments about the candidates at all.

HRH Prince William is just learning to fly a search and rescue project as little more than a vanity project. He is spending time with each of the armed forces -- not to really defend dear Old England -- but so he can be a better symbolic head of the armed forced. Next year, they turn him loose on the Whitehall.

Are Brangelina are so powerful that they can build a rock that even they can't lift? I thought not.


You wanna know what's "dismissive," Carly Fiorina? The way the HP board fired your ass for spying on them while the stock tanked. *That* is dismissive.


While the double alliteration of "Lindsay Lohan punches persistent paparazzo" is nice, I'd have gone for"LiLo lands left on loath-to-leave lensman."


I can't believe Elle Macpherson would let her son ride like that! He should be facing forward, so if something bad happens, he goes OVER the handlebars and not into her face. Imagine the cries of "Owe, the humanity!" if *that* were to happen.


Was Shia's car crash more or less "terrifying" than his unrequited love for Diane Sawyer?


Liv Tyler feels "neurotic." And Royston Langdon? Dude feels like a lady.


Is "Rambo 5" the one where the old man alternates between night terrors and soiling his bed?


RIP, Rick Wright. Gone to The Great Gig In The Sky.


Strictly speaking, those "Toronto strippers" are probably from Rouyn or Temiskaming, Quebec. That's why we call it "the French-Canadian ballet."

Yeah, I'm sure you complained about the Hilary impersonations on SNL, or the skewering of Obama and other democrats too. You Republican shills are so despicable. You always cry and yell when you believe Republicans are being attacked, but you have no problem making up lies about Obama and other Democrats. I'm sure you haven't complained about the lies McCain is telling about Obama? Or the lies Pallin is telling about her "experience."

Imdb.com allows free film, TV viewing

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Amazon.com said on Monday that its subsidiary, Internet Movie Database, would allow users to watch feature films and TV shows for no charge on its website, imdb.com.

Over 6,000 titles will be available, the company said, citing recent episodes of popular television shows like "24" and "Heroes" or classic films like "Some Like It Hot."

IMDB also said that the first episodes of new fall television shows like "Lipstick Jungle" and "30 Rock" will be available for free viewing before their first air date.

Amazon, best known as the global online retail giant, has been pursuing deals to increase its footprint into digital media. The company already offers downloadable films and television shows from almost all the major Hollywood studios and television networks on its own website.

Generally speaking, Toronto strippers are of a higher "quality," if you can call it that, than their Pittsburgh sisters.

That said, I will never forget the night my friend J___ and I witnessed one dancer leave the stage during the second of her three scheduled songs while screaming at another dancer, "You keep your f______ hands off my old man!"

The ladies continued with a frank exchange of views in a nearby dressing room, accompanied by the sounds of screaming, slamming doors, thrown furniture, and of course, "Hot Blooded" by Foreigner, which continued to play on the establishment's sound system.

This is certainly worth trying, but I'm less supportive of $ for attendance than $ for good grades, though I'm also worried about grade inflation. Will 90% of the students now get As, whether they deserve them or not? Worst case scenario, DC loses a bit of money. Best case scenario, some students catch the education bug. There is no across-the-board fix, so you might as well try what you can.

I have 3 years of experience teaching science to students and teachers in Birmingham public middle and high schools. Judging by all the pregnant 14 year olds I met, I'm guessing these kids would be considered "at risk." I was a transient part of their lives, so I don't know how many stopped going to school, but it was probably a significant number. So, that's what I've done for the "at risk" youth in schools. I'm currently on track to move into science education policy and curriculum, which is truly my passion.

You might want to take the Lizard rescue ladder with you; it looks like quite a climb.
