In Sean Penn's defense, though, he's such a curmudgeon that he also wishes a just slightly milder form of cancer on his friends.


Debbie Rowe "mortified": she certainly didn't sell her babies to be raised like *that*.


If I may paraphrase John Lennon's Aunt Mimi: "Vaguely manga-porn gaijin karaoke's all well and good, Kirsten, but you'll never make a living at it."


"Is 3-D ruining movies?" You mean there are 3-D versions of "Cop Out," "Couples Retreat" and "2012"?


"'Police Academy' franchise gets a reboot." Wait, wait, don't tell me: in 3-D, right?


"Twitter hits 10 billion tweets milestone." Meanwhile, commenters to online news stories about it post one million variations of "I never use it. get a brain morans."


"HBO's "Rome" moving closer to big screen adaptation." Cool. I have a vewy gweat fwiend in Wome, you know.

Neat facts about Lewis Carroll: actually kept a Jabberwock as a pet.


Playboy's Unabashed Dictionary defines "Playgirl's bargain basement offer for a nude Jon Gosselin spread" as the epitome of low-balling.

I think whoever takes over Simon Cowell's spot on AI should at least be allowed to be named in Celebritology, not just as a relationship to a Celeb.

Considerig it's Sean Penn, his critics are just grateful he is still at the wishing stage.

It is not "rebooting" when the movie was bad to begin with. It's cleaning what you stepping in off the boot.

Although geez, Hollywood, you can't come up with original bad ideas for movies? It can't be that hard.

Hoooweee....that Daily Show/Chatroulette thing had me laughing so hard. How lucky is Samantha Bee to be married to Jason Jones?

Maybe Kathryn Bigelow's name could be spelled correctly on the Oscar bingo cards. That would make it even more fun!

You know, I might actually watch (not pay for, just watch) a Police Academy take on CSI... but I doubt that's what they have in mind.

Other than that, today looks like a day to let Byoolin speak for the rest of us.

You take that back. What did Michael Winslow ever do to you?


And yet still better than Kirsten Dunst's performance in Spiderman 3.


I hope the actresses at the Oscars thank Lewis Carroll for inventing double stick tape.


Joey Lawrence and wife welcome second daughter. Whoa!

I know. Sorry about that koenigeducation. We're working on getting that fixed right now.

Right now in heaven, Farrah Fawcett is rolling her eyes at Sean Penn and saying, "what an idiot."

MsFitz. Lock your door and put a chair under the handle (does that really work?). We'll pray for your safety.

Speaking of the John Cusack fall from grace... Has anyone seen the trailer for Hot Tub Time Travel Machine? Or what ever that excremental movie is called. I cannot believe that he's in it...

Le sigh.

sorcerorscat, there's an article re anorexia nervosa in today's WaPo, "Family Almanac: Treating daughter's eating disorder must involve entire family":
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/03/04/AR2010030404734.html

I don't know whether the young woman you know with AN has been treated by a Maudsley-certified therapist using family-based treatment or, if so, whether it helped (if not, residential treatment seems to be the recourse of last resort). Such a sad, sad condition, and painful for loved ones to watch someone they love just fading away like that. I hope your friend still has time to recover.

I have to disagree with counsel, MzFitz: You would be doing Celebritology a great service - a "solid" is what the kids call it these days, I think - if you were to see if Mr. Wonderland's "all that."

Plus, you'd be the 10,000,143,206th tweet on Twitter!

Otherwise, all we'll have left to talk about is John Cusack's Steaming Hot Tub Full O' Crap Time Machine.

Posted by: byoolin1 | March 5, 2010 10:02 AM | Report abuse

LTL, we saw ads for "Hot Tub" during the Olympics, and couldn't believe it was a real movie and not a prank ad!


Elin Nordegren moves back home to help rehab Tiger Woods's image.

Why, why, why? Oh, for the money. Never mind.


Angelina Jolie and Mick Jagger hooked up, according to new book.

Angie, and a cast of thousands, no doubt.

And raise your hand if you clicked on the link to Jon Gosselin's (supposed) manhood.

Actually, no. Mr. P is working from home today, so I'll just sneak a peek when he gets out of the shower. Besides, from what his ex-mistress claims, Jon G isn't all that.

Nah, I'm at work, and I think "fired for viewing nude pictures of Jon Gosselin" might be the most humiliating way possible to lose your job.

SPLOOT! I was trying to think what her 'do reminded me of, and you've nailed it. And now I've nailed my keyboard as well.

When I first glanced a that picture of Mena Suvari, I Honest-to-God thought it was Patrick Swayze in a still from "Too Wong Foo ..."

Wow, I got no snark. Even though I loathe Sarah Palin, all those other coddled, spoiled celebs grab free stuff all the time, so it's not like she would stand out in the crowd for that.

Friday lurve to Marie Osmond. Cannot even imagine the heartbreak.

Sarah Palin: world's biggest hypocrite?

How could Elin moving back home help rebuild Tiger's image, when everyone knows it's "smoke and mirrors"? Is anyone fooled?

Posted by: Californian11 | March 5, 2010 11:38 AM | Report abuse

Californian, as Deep Throat allegedly told Bob Woodward (at least in the movie), "Follow the money." Applies in both cases you cite, I suppose.

Michelle Rodriguez returning to "Lost" Obviously, there is a God. Probably not on "Lost" tho.

As you say, northgs, byoo is on fire today.

I thought Angie had better taste then that. No wait, Billy Bob...

Kirsten Dunst:

That is the best your clothes have fit in an age (I'm using this term loosely, considering this is how anime themed clothing generally seems to fit), and that's the healthiest you've looked in a while. I don't know if this is good or bad.

buffy, NotDoc,

I thought Mena Suvari had her head on backwards, but not her hair.

Check for which part of Mena's head has cockatoo droppings.

I'm going to do my best to get some TMZ-league photos that I'll let Liz "leak" first.

I think the only way I'm going to see his junk is if he decides to skinny dip in the hot tub, or his shorts fall of while he's lifting weights. I'm not willing to risk my STI-free status for the Lizards, sorry.

Nosy - thanks for the link. As soon as I saw Roger Doucet (no need for a caption, either), my heart skipped a beat. The man could belt it out.
