L.A. Times asks: is "Glee" part of the leftist propaganda machine?

Don't they know it's on Fox? (Of course, it IS clearly lefty to promote support for arts education in school).

Ryan Phillippe tells Men's Health magazine he still has "sadness" about divorce from Reese Witherspoon.

Ryan, no one forced you to cheat on Reese. Your alleged sadness is of your own making, so tough toenails.

Which geek franchise has the most passionate fan base?

Star Trek?

Why is Chelsea Clinton here? It's not like she is a celeb or has even done anything newsworthy.

You know, a Joss Whedon Captain America might not be half bad. Still not sure about the Avengers though.

A remake of the original Jaws in 3d might be cool. However, Jaws3d with Dennis Quaid should be wiped from the movie database (and our memories if possible).

For those who answer "Neigh, verily!" to the question, "Are you a Sara Jessica Parker fan?" you may wish to view a clip from a recent episode of South Park. WARNING: NSFW, or for people with easily upset stomachs. You can avoid the gross-out moments by watching the SJP parts, which are at the beginning of the clip.

ep, Chelsea campaigned for her mother during the 2008 Presidential primary season, alongside America Ferrera. As to whether any Presidential offspring is a celeb, yes and no; depends on how much the spawn seeks the public limelight, I suppose.

"Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt split." If it's *really* true this time, then, I *really* don't care this time.

I hope Larry King isn't like one of those stereotypical fathers at baseball games, yelling at his kid to hit the ball like Honus Wagner, telling stories about how when he played all the gloves were barely bigger than a bay's hand, and of being so poor they had to sew the leather covers back on instead of replacing a scuffed ball.

Ryan Phillippe also should have sadness about appearing in that new MacGruber movie.

Charlie Sheen's shaved his head? Out of it, more like.

Bruce Willis' "Die Hard, Smell Good" has to be better than that "Tim McGraw's Eau de Cowboy Saddle" from a couple of years ago. (And, BTW, JeLi, did you know that not only are "comments are closed" on, they ones that were there are invisible? [shakes fist])

Bret Michaels' ruptured appendix will star in its own dating show; runners-up to Rock Of Love will compete for its affection in "Infected Vestigial Rock Of Love."

"Drunken Kiefer Sutherland booted from London strip club." If the strippers were Québecoises, it would be a perfect reminder of a night out in Toronto for a Canadian boy.

If Steven Seagal *did* once ask Jenny McCarthy to strip during an audition, it was probably to try to get her to shut up about her internet research into the causes and treatments of autism.

LiLo, there's a big difference between playing Linda Lovelace in a movie and just doing your impression of her in the bathroom at a party somewhere.

Nicolas Cage has TASTE comin' out the WAZOO, doesn't he? Pyramids, houses described as "frat-house bordello" style, that hair. "The Situation" owes that guy a debt of gratitude.

"... a bay's hand"?

Well, if a bay's hand were the same size as a boy's hand, yes...

Which geek franchise has the most rabid fans? Probably Star Trek, although Star Wars can still make a case. But that list needs to jettison Twilight - those kiddos will forget all about the sparkly vampire, just as soon as Justin Bieber makes a concert film - and add World of Warcraft.

Charlie Sheen sports a porn 'stache and reportedly engages in an affair with a lingerie model, while Lindsey Lohan is set to play Linda Lovelace in her next role. Coincidence?

Nicholas Cage is one deeply weird individual. And, what Byoolin said.

Is Glee part of the "leftist propaganda machine"? No, it's a wildly popular show that generates a buttload of revenue and buzz. No wonder Murdoch is airing it!

Love the Tim Gunn clip. Thanks for posting.

Liz -

You need to update the Rumer Willis bit. There's a link on that page now (as of about 10 minutes ago, apparently) that says reps deny the rumors...

I kinda like the name "Die Hard, Smell Good." The oxymoronic quality of the name is like a simile [Thanks, Nosy] for Willis' career.

Congratulations, Micah Alberti [Rumer Willis' fiance]!! Soon you will be able to join Matthew Broderick in the stands and watch your wives run in the 5th race at Belmont.

[Kelly] Rowland said: "I found the flight attendants really s****y. I don't know why. You tell me.

"They were very rude to us. That's the first time you'll ever hear me say a curse word. They were just rude to us on the plane. They treated us like five-year-old kids [on South Park]."

Acts to add to my Can't Wait to See List:
Russel Crowe headlining a Full Monty Bollywood dance number
Nicolas Cage doing a reprise of Steve Martin's King Tut

Speaking of Nicolas Cage, it appears that a major reason for his bankrupt condition is that he was the victim of a pyramid scheme. [insert rimshot here]

The following take place between 4:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m.:


JACK [walking into CTU]: Chloe can you pull up a satellite image on my pants?

CHLOE [surprised]: Jack, why are you naked from the waist down? Would you pleaese throw a towel over it?

JACK: There's no time!! Some no-good bartender gave me an open tab. Next thing I knew, four bears wearing tuxedos threw me onto the sidewalk without my pants!!! Chloe, we MUST find those pants!!

CHOLOE [rolling eyes]: Jack, we're in the middle of a crisis here. Why can't you find your pants yourself?

JACK: Dammit, Chloe! There's no time! In less walk into the Chinese Consulate, shoot the Chinese Consul, and trigger a nuclear showdown!

CHLOE [scrunching mouth]: Jack, I think I've got a work-around that will disable your pants.

JACK: Explain.

CHLOE: Jack, your pants became a WMD because you've worn them for the past 7 seasons without washing them. And you've never stopped for a call of Nature [scrunching nose], if you know what I mean.

JACK: What's your point? I was saving the world. I didn't have time to stop. If I had, the world would have gone to hell. Besides, there's nothing more effective in making a perp talk than threatening them with a whiff of the crotch of my pants.

CHLOE [frowning]: Jack, this isn't South Park. Do you want me to find your WMD pants, or not?

JACK: Yes, Chloe, whatever it takes.

CHLOE: Okay.

JACK: How are you going to neutralize them?

Sas, Much as I wish I'd coined "Die Hard, Smell Good," it was byoolin's handiwork.

Paris Hilton and Doug Reinhardt split. Split what?

Like I said yesterday, Susan was using her crutches incorrectly and today's explanation of how she came to be on crutches confirms my believe this is for attention. Keep the attention on the Hatians who still need help, not on you Susan.

3D Jaws? ...shudders...Just when you thought it was safe to get back into the water.

Don't be so harsh on Nicholas Cage, he was just going for the tax deduction for prepaid funeral expenses which apparently he sorely needs.

EPJD I know this is something you get frustrated with, I think a fair line is if the link is to a celeb publication. The Chelsey link is to People Mag. so it seems like fair inclusion to me. If we were clicking back to Politico magazine or something, then I'd be inclined to say it was a stretch...

I remember that back the day the Bush twins were regular reporting fodder, and one of their weddings was covered in People Mag. too... endless oohing over her romantic hairstyle as a bride.

Also, ep, there's a long history of the DC area working itself into a lather over First Daughter weddings (even after their fathers are out of office, e.g, Margaret Truman, Susan Ford, Amy Carter). Just part of the charm of living in the region, I suppose :-(

I smell dead people.

What's Daniel Radcliffe starring in now, "Hair"? "Oh, Calcutta"?

Lindsay, come ON already. We don't want to see you naked anymore either. We didn't before, if you must know. Putcher cloves on, grrl.

As for Bruce Willis' new cologne, I'd've gone with "The Sick Scents" myself.

In response to being attacked by Kelly Rowland, the Qantas flight attendant reminded Kelly that she could barely put two words together as a host of that bad Bravo show and also told her that no one remembers Cindy Birdsong either.

Can Kirsten Dunst *survive* making a film with Lars von Trier? I'm sorry folks, but I'm WORRIED!

Am I the only one who's unable to open "Friday list: The Rewatchables -- The movies we can view again and again" beyond the blurb for film #4?

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | April 16, 2010 3:52 PM | Report abuse

Nope, I can't open it, either. Although Jen's choices for 1 and 2 were so inexplicable to me that I'm wary of what comes next! However, concur with Moonstruck, which is definitely worth watching over and over.
