The funniest part about Esquire's Sexiest WOMEN bracket. It lists Lane Kiffin, the USC Football coach. Yes, he's a guy.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is such a scam. The director of the selection committee just picks who he wants.

To save his career, Michael Jackson should have died long ago.

I am quite sure one of the other Lizards will have excellent snark about Edward Norton mediating for Courtney Love.

Jesus Luz feels married to Madonna. She screams at him then ignores him to go work out.

Jesus Luz feels married to Madonna. And should keep SAYING so, publically and often, especially in states with common law marriage.

And then, when haggered, elderly Madonna feels like she needs to trade down to a boyfriend whom her own daughter is old enough to babysit, THEN Jesus Luz should file for divorce and alimony.

Kate Winslet breaks up, goes to Mexico, and all we get is a shot in a wetsuit? The Daly Mail's been slipping lately. What the hell's going on over there?


"Jesus Luz says he feels like he's married to Madonna." Well, I guess that's a whole new cross to bear, then.


If it was an accident, then why did the French culture minister say to Marion Cotillard, "That was for that 9/11 foolishness"?


It's too much to ask that Jennifer Garner in "Butter" is inspired by Marlon Brando's line in "Last Tango In Paris," isn't it?


That "lost Shakespeare work"? A very early version of the BBC-TV comedy "Are You Being Served?"


It's a shame that Spencer Pratt rumour ain't true: after all, who'd know more about viruses, worms and other garbage on your computer?


"Heather Mills's fake limb prompts airport security check." If Sir Paul had been so thorough, we wouldn't even know who Heather Mills is.


Conan's got me hankering for a wheat bread sub now. I guess I'll go hang out a Quizno's and wait for an old man to come out.

Questions for today:

1) Why can't Julianne Moore EVER look neat and pulled together, and why does she consistently choose unflattering clothes?

2) Why does Jennifer Garner continue to "star" in movies when the movie-going public has made it clear they're uninterested at best?

3) When can we expect a Spencer Pratt-free existence? Why can't it be RIGHT NOW?

4) Is there some reason that Nicky Hilton continues to get media coverage? 'Cause I can't think of a single one.

Discuss.

"Julianne Moore (left) and Amanda Seyfried pose at the New York premiere of the film 'Chloe.' (AP)" -- Two words. Static Guard. (Oh, wait, that's how the dresses are supposed to look. My bad.)

"Corey Feldman won't attend Corey Haim's funeral" -- Is this a Liz Taylor/Michael Jackson thing? When did attending friends' funerals become a trend?

"Jesus Luz says he feels like he's married to Madonna" -- And before you know it, it'll be "goodnight and thank you, whoever."

"Mike Tyson takes on pigeon racing in new reality show." -- He's taking on a pigeon? For what, a 5-K? I'd think the bird could fly faster than he can run, but then again I haven't seen him in a while.

"Kate Gosselin gets a new weave." -- Is it too much to hope that the weave is one of this Chinese Finger Trap things but for her mouth?

"Justin Timberlake, Julia Roberts to make 'Glee' cameo appearances?" -- He plays Schu's less-talented little brother and she leads the class in lip synching to never-before-seen-for-a-good-reason clips of "Everyone Says I Love You."

"Jennifer Garner to star in 'Butter' -- Working title: "I Can't Believe It's Not JLo!"

UGH. I meant to say re: Corey/Corey, "When did NOT attending friends' funerals become a trend?"

Note to Iggy Pop: It's called gravity, dude. Please put a shirt on! Thanks.

My favorite part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony is when other performers salute the awardees. Hearing Iggy Pop hit those high notes in "Waterloo" was worth the price of admission.

Esquire brackets the Sexiest Women....and just like the College Board, I can't figure out how both Heidi Klum and Avril Lavigne are ranked 16th. Heidi had a much tougher season at home than Avril had on the road.

"Twilight in Forks?" Is that where the vampires compete on Top Chef? And would that be enough to raise Padma's ranking at 11th?

td
When did NOT attending friends' funerals become a trend?

When David Spade didn't go to Chris Farley's? In fairness, I wondered if Spade worried he might break down during the funeral. Because, if you've ever been to a service where a relative or friend of the deceased completely loses it, you know what a painful experience it is.


Justin Timberlake, Julia Roberts to make 'Glee' cameo appearances?

He teaches the boys to lip-synch to "Single Ladies" while wearing leotards and heels. She gets the kids to sing "I Say a Little Prayer" in the cafeteria at lunchtime.


Jesus Luz says he feels like he's married to Madonna.

Sorta like Oedipus re Jocasta?

Re Spencer, Jaybub and byoo have it right. In fact, the first time I read the headline, I stopped reading after "...Cyber." It was so much more satisfying that way.

Like most guys, I feel that I am the only one qualified to judge who is the Sexiest Woman Alive.

Jesus, we've all had that feeling at one time or another. Hopefully it passes.

Mitterand saw "Bananas" too many times and thought it was part of the ceremony.

Mel should have shaved one side of Kate's head instead.

So not only is the Daily Mail not up to its usual level of quality, but The Guardian has also gone to hell. See my comment re the Sexiest Woman above.

SXSW. Miley already has a biopic?

Is there an ex Courtney Love has not dated?

One word on Nicky Hilton's importance: Paris.

The idea of Spencer Pratt leaving The Hills because he had a temper tantrum is much more believeable than the idea that he got a good job using his brain.

Posted by: DCCubefarm | March 16, 2010 11:10 AM | Report abuse

td, had the exact same thought about static cling.

Nosy, Glee already did Single Ladies with a guy in a unitard. My favorite episode!

RIP Pingping.

Hey, people are going crazy over Rielle Hunter (well actually her statements) over at the Sourcettes. She def deserves a nom to the Skank Hall of Fame. Or perhaps the Salon de Skanque Celebre, Francois Mitterand, Conservateur.

Thread weaver here ...

"It's too much to ask that Jennifer Garner in "Butter" is inspired by Marlon Brando's line in "Last Tango In Paris," isn't it?"

"Mike Tyson takes on pigeon racing in new reality show." -- He's taking on a pigeon? For what, a 5-K? I'd think the bird could fly faster than he can run, but then again I haven't seen him in a while."

Please, please, please Mike Tyson, find some way to utter "I coulda been a contender" as part of the show.

Hmmmm....which celebrity junkies might get into a bidding war over the fatal Jacko syringe? Whitney Houston? Bobby Brown? Lindsay Lohan? Courtney Love? Nick Nolte?

I think we have the makings of a Friday List here.

Amy Winehouse? Kate Moss? Pete Doherty?

Michael Lewis just mentioned at the end of Terry Gross's "Fresh Air" interview today that a few weeks ago Brad Pitt bought the film rights to "The Big Short." Lewis (also author of the book "The Blind Side") predicts that Pitt will want to play Michael Berry (the 1-eyed, Asperger-syndrome former doctor). If you saw "60 Minutes" this past Sunday, you know what this is about.

I am SO HAPPY that Michael Jackson's music will live on in such extraordinary ways. Michael broke all the records in life and continues to set the standards higher than anyone else! MICHAEL IS TRULY THE KING!!!! To the Most Beautiful, Most Sexy, Most Caring, Most Giving, Most Angelic, Most Sincere, Most Honest, Most Tortured, Most Misunderstood! Michael, I love you MORE and Miss You Like Crazy!!! Still crying. Pina
