First, Liz, the link on the front page really needs to be fixed. It goes to the Tila Tequila/Merriman story.

Hey, Lizards, let's take up a collection to pay Kate to NOT appear in Playboy (or anywhere else for that matter). Perhaps grant funding in the public interest may be in order.

The name of the Rosie O'Donnel Star Jones talk show: Bitter B!tches.

Meghan Fox, the rest of the world is eternally grateful you will never make a sex tape. Now, if you will also shut up, the world will be a better place.

"Oprah calls Whitney Houston interview the 'best I've ever done'" -- It's all in one's perspective, really; a C- *is* better than a D+. ("I," "I," "I," -- Look how smoothly once again this interview became all Oprah! She is unbelievable.)

"Tyra Banks unveils her real hair" - Yep, with headlines like this, 9/9/09 may indeed BE Armageddon. But hey, nice hair!

"Elijah Wood donates his DNA to charity art project." -- Just what we need, another suspected birth father for Paris, Prince and Blanket. Has Zsa Zsa's husband claimed paternity of those kids yet?

"Chris Robinson (Kate Hudson's ex) expecting a baby with girlfriend" -- No offense, but wasn't he famous (you know, that lead singer gig with The Black Crowes) WAY before he married Goldie Hawn's daughter?

"Kate Gosselin offered $400K to pose for Playboy?" -- Yep, Armageddon.

"Tyra Banks unveils her real hair..." and everyone who looked at it was instantly turned to stone.


"Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy split" - is that DWTS, or more trouble in Chechnya?


"Elijah Wood donates his DNA to charity art project..." TD, nice job - you hit this one right out of the park.


"Charlie Sheen writes letter about "9/11 fraud" to President Obama..." Meanwhile, Jon Voight writes rambling 3-page screed demanding to see Obama's birth certificate and asking whether he has Angelina's home phone number.


"Rosie O'Donnell and Star Jones collaborating on reality show?" I don't see how they're going to be able to call that a reality show.


"Brad Pitt spends $80K on gerbil run for his kids." What kind of parent puts his kids in a gerbil run?


I'm beginning to think that Megan Fox is this century's foremost practitioner of Dadaist poetry.

Late last night, it occurred to me why Jon Gosselin accused Kate of tasking his wedding ring.

One recent morning, Jon awoke to find that his nose was missing. Realizing that his nose was attached to his wedding ring, he set out to find the missing ring, aka, "Precious."

The saga of Jon Gosselin's quest to find his missing nose and the wedding ring to which it is attached will be told in Jon's first book, "Lord of the Detachable Nose Ring," to be published by King Missile Press.

Perhaps a better quatrain is Century VIII, Number fourteen.

The great credit of gold and abundance of silver
will cause honor to be blinded by lust;
the offense of the adulterer will become known,
which will occur to his great dishonor.

Someone needs to tell Megan Fox that women don't have sex to look sexy.

Thank you, Megan, for explaining why so many young women in this country have warped views of their sexuality.

That's not noodling.

Mellencamp followed the Moody Blues in Search of the Lost Chord. Mellencamp found it first, and discovered that it wasn't much of a chord. Being stuck with it, he decided to use it anyway and every which way he could in the opening to "I Need a Lover..." subtitled, "How Do I Love This Simple Chord? Let Me Count the Ways."

Okay, just got a potential scoop on DC101 that Josh Kelley and Katherine Heigl are getting a child in Korea today or tomorrow. May explain why she is taking the leave of absense. Intesting. Guy who is friends with Josh Kelley mentioned it as a reason he was no longer playing in some golf tourney. Just thought I'd share with everyone!

Sas, whatever rejoinder I may have had to your 10:00 has been lost in the haze of reading Wikipedia entries about the first six or seven Moody Blues albums while the chorus from "Lovely To See You" plays in my head.

Late again and most of the links are blocked for me today. Will rely on you Lizards for the details. Glad I can't see that Jack N. pic.

I could see Elijah Wood and I must say he could use some Visine, if you know what I mean.

Lindsay Lohan says yes to irony. Can't see the link, what does it mean? Has Sam had an Ann Hesche epiphany?

Not sure PB is the right magazine for nude photos of a woman with a stick up her.....
(ok I apologize for that).

To make up for the previous crude comment: Brad Pitt must have bought his kids the cast of G-Force. How lucky.

Actually I have to agree with Megan Fox. That does rank up there as one of the top 10 reasons to not make a sex tape. Most people would not like to see their own O face either. Mega turn-off.

Back to work.

The gerbil run makes perfect sense. At the end of it is a wheel that the gerbils use to help Brad make all his decisions.

Catagories:

- pitch for New Orleans funding

- torture call to Jen Aniston

- make movie with Clooney

- confuse German press

- make movie with Tarantino

- buy something for Angelina

- another interview with Ann Curry
