If it's true, then Sam Mendes is a stupid stupid man.

OK, Jennifer Anniston. Sexy comfortable? You are trying too hard to be thought of as sexy. You are! It's coming off as desperate. The other day I she was on a talk show with shorts soo short and "sexy" but it seemed off. Plus, other 'offenses' that I cant' recall.

The "lame" Internet, Miley? Really? Then, pray tell, where else are your young fans going to find nearly-naked pictures of you?

Jennifer Aniston goes against the grain: usually women want "lovely-" and men want "sexy comfortable."

"Angelina Jolie-funded school opens in Afghanistan." Can we just skip ahead to the part where FAUX News says she's running a madrassa for terrorists?

"Gabourey Sidibe's mom hits back at Howard Stern over fat jokes." Here's hoping she didn't start with the old "Why don't you pick on someone your own size."

Say, JeLi, just because the NY Daily News seems to think a dog can be charged in a US court is no reason for you to go along with it.

Tom Selleck just answered the old question, "How long will that money from 'Magnum, P.I.' last, you think?" (22 years! Not bad.)

I've been to Cleveland: Betty White's 'hot" there in the 'sexually attractive' sense of the word.

The Hollywood Reporter reviews "MacGruber": "very thin material," "utterly disposable," "unlikely to catch fire at the box office," "stretches the material about as far as it can go."
If I recall correctly, these phrases have appeared in reviews of every SNL movie with the exception of 'The Blue Brothers'.

"Madonna doesn't want boytoy Jesus Luz hanging out with Lindsay Lohan." That's a shame, because "Jesus Lohan" would be a great name for the couple.

Not to worry, Lizards - Heidi and Seal get a pass on the vow-renewal curse since they do this every year. Which is almost as often as they have a baby.

Reading about Miley Cyrus, I have never been so thankful that I wasn't famous during my teenage years. Yeah, she's got other issues I won't give her a pass for, but that quote just sounds like the classic dumb thing you say as a teenager. If you're lucky, everyone forgets it. If you're not, you have a memory that you look back on as an adult and squirm about.

Seconding your Sam Mendes comment, Guest.

I am loving the Pop Culture Mix, by the by.

Wow - Miley Cyrus actually said something sensible. There's hope for the girl yet.

"Lame" internet, Miley? Did Daddy Cyrus take your internet privileges away? What did you do, post another half-naked picture of yourself?

A Scientology Diet Plan??? Is that where they eat their young?

The article about Gabby Sidibe calls her "gorgeous Gabourey." Who wrote it? Kirstie Alley? That kind of beauty is enough to drive a person to date Britney Spears, who BTW, is available again. No word on whether her hoo-hah is included.

Perhaps Miley Cyrus can star in the film version of The Carrie Years....if they can braid her mane and fit her with a feedbag.

Your Honor, I'm sorry that L'il Wayne can't report to jail today. The New York jail wouldn't let him out. You'll have to take a number.

The reviews of the new Missile Command say it's lame. Perhaps the next version will be the extra Avatar features, enabling users to nuke the Na'vi.

"sexy comfortable".....hmmmmm....have any of Jen's exes used those words to describe her?

Corey Fledman writes that he wishes he could be with Corey Haim. Corey, all you need to do is to renew Other Corey's prescriptions. However, I don't that Toronto will ante up for your funeral expenses.

Just the boys from Spinal Tap, Sas.

Um... no offense, but this may be too much. Atari? Really? Isn't this a celebrity blog? And links to movie reviews? That's tangentially related to celebrities, okay, but that could get endless. Is this is going to be a mish-mash of _everything_ in pop culture? Too much.

guest and byoo, you know I agree on the "sexy Jen" thing. It just ain't hapnin.

And Balmer51 is spot on with the Pop Culture Mix.

I'm not too surprised I saw an item on "Michael Douglas's son's girlfriend," But I think "Jennifer Lopez' former dog" is stretching it even for Celebritology. And you KNOW how I feel re JLo.

Are we sure that Conan's movie won't actually star Sacha Baron Cohen pretending to be Conan?

I thought Tom Selleck had hung up his mustache years ago, as he should have. At this point, he needs to start going for the Interesting Old Guy roles, since our neighbor Bob Duvall is getting up there.

I'm with Madge about staying away from Lilo. I know she needs at least one friend (c'mon, even Nixon had one), but I wouldn't want it to be anyone I knew.

"Sexy Jen" belongs in the same list as "Jumbo Shrimp."

"Gabourey Sidibe's mom hits back at Howard Stern over fat jokes" -- You misunderstood. Ryan Seacrest asked Gaby's mom what she thought of Stern and Mom replied, "I'd hit that."

"Britney Spears single again?" -- I believe she has been "single" since she divorced K-Fed. This is news?!

"Oprah due in court" -- Planet Oprah is way too busy. Surely she'll send Gayle or Dr. Phil in her place. However, if the Texas Cattlemen were in Africa too...

"The Carrie Years" -- Just watch "Square Pegs" instead. Thirty-year-old footage of Johnny Slash beats present-day smut-talking teens anyday.

"Jason Priestley sits in for Kathie Lee on 'Today'" -- And since no one watches that hour, no one even noticed the difference. Though when he started drooling over old photos of Frank handing out $100 bills to sweatshop workers, the audience members did cock their heads sideways in slight confusion.

"Angelina Jolie-funded school opens in Afghanistan" -- It's called "Girl, Instructed".

"Tom Selleck returning to TV in cop drama" -- Yeah but who wants to watch "57 Magnum, P.I."

Green beer in the Tiki bar today. Join me and we'll see how lame that new Missile Command game is.

Any news as to the theme of Heidi and Seals vow renewels?

Hey, Betty White and Cleveland rocks! (can you please just forget about that old mistake on the lake?)

"If you are openly gay, the masses can be asses." - Benjamin Bratt. Don't you love him?

Corey, did the world need to know there was a "secret Corey handshake?"

Miley, if the world stays away from "'lame' Internet," how will they download your new songs?

And sorry, Jennifer Aniston, you get the likes of Brad Pitt and John Mayer. Leave Dave Letterman alone. He belongs to us brainy, plain girls.
