Comments

"Elvis' white piano up for auction" -- Sounds like Lisa has a kid's college tuition payment due.

"Eric Roberts joins 'Celebrity Rehab' cast for addiction to medical marijuana" -- Sorry to hear that. Such a good actor, such bad career choices. Will Julia visit?

"Rihanna to make acting debut in big screen adaptation of Hasbro game Battleship." -- Giving new meaning to "You sunk my battleship" [wink]. Additional proposed dialogue:

Her: "Was that B4 we met?"
Him: "No. Shall I C2 that?"
Her: "Yes. Is that an aircraft carrier or are you happy to see me?"
Him: "Hit."

Possible reasons Angelina Jolie has joined Twitter, if not to Tweet:
1- To further demoralize Jen by getting to a gajillion followers first?
2- To follow paparazzi for a change.
3- Compiling randomly-selected tweets and generating a Dadaist movie script.
4- Newest cause: Save The Fail Whale.


Unauthenticated Mel Gibson tape No. 7: Doesn't Mel read Celebritology? If he did, he'd know this was happening and he'd stop calling her.


Rapper goes to jail for murder or drugs: street cred goes waaaaaaay up.
Rapper goes to jail for tax avoision*: not so much.


LiLo misses her family? Come on, she goes longer without seeing them on a typical trip to 7-11.


"Terry Gilliam will direct YouTube webcast of indie super band Arcade Fire." Given Terry's luck making films, I think we should brace ourselves for the collapse of the Internet.


"Eric Roberts joins "Celebrity Rehab" cast for addiction to medical marijuana." In happier news, he reports that his fondness for recreational marijuana is completely under control.


"Heidi Montag drops out of reality show." Mirroring her relationship to actual reality.


"Rihanna to make acting debut in big screen adaptation of Hasbro game Battleship." Spoiler alert: she gets killed by a giant red peg.


*Thank you, Kent Brockman!

"The story follows a massive Naval adventure across the seas, in the skies and over land as the armed forces of our planet fight for survival against an alien water-bound armada."

Forgive me if I'm afraid Rhianna will defeat the aliens with the power of music...
Watashi no Kare no Pilot anyone?

"Spoiler alert: she gets killed by a giant red peg." -- byoolin, you KILL me. Just the visual of that and I'm falling off my chair here.

Um, what's the difference between "medical marijuana" and weed, besides the prescription?

Poor Hitler. Scapegoated by the Jews. Oliver Stone, friend and life coach of Hugo Chavez and Il Jong of North Korea and despot Communist/Totalitarian leaders everywhere, golden child of the Left, is only parroting the Left on this one. Stone has a big following in the White House and on Capitol Hill after all. Shocker. It would be fun to see HIS assets nationalized.

Mad Men was superb!

I didn't think it was possible for me to hate Betty any more than I did, but I do. She got traded her MBA for an Mrs., got married & had kids because that was what you did back then & now she resents those kids & Don (though Don deserves it) & still can't have the life she really wants. She's only keeping the kids just so Don can't have them.

I hate Betty.

I miss Sal.

I love Christina Hendricks & her boobs.

I still miss Lost.

Angelina brushes off rumors of a shaky relationship with the answer, Brad is a wonderful father ?!? All righty then.

Christina Applegate, debuting the new must-have Hollywood accessory: pregnancy & a fiancee.

Latest Headlines, "In Entertainment" in lefthand column, "Jack Hanna wards off grizzly with pepper spray."

At last, the solution to Sarah Palin! Wonder if it'd work on the rest of her cave-bear clan, including Bristol and Levi...

I gotta hand it to you, N.P. Not a single mention of S.P. in the blog today but yet you manage to find a way to bring her up! :)

Palin brought it on herself, with her mama grizzly meme. Wonder if there's a cure for her pink elephants? Oh wait, maybe Celebrity Rehab?

What sort of Truth is it that crushes the freedom to seek the truth?

Let's End Thought Crimes in the Twenty-first Century. -- to separate historical fact from propaganda…peace is patriotic!

What Stone said about both Jewish influence and control in America and the overlooking of non-Jewish victims of WWII are both true. It's like saying blacks dominate the NBA- anyone denying that is racist because they're better at that sport!!!!

I agree with ReporterNotebook that thought crimes- esp ones that are open secrets that everyone in Washington knows (ever heard of AIPAC guys ;-) are ridiculous.

Comments about Jewish control have been said by Gibson but also Stone, Brando, Paul Findlay, Joseph P. Kennedy, Henry Ford, Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, Pat Buchanan, Cynthia McKinney, Martin Luther, ...They can no longer be dismissed as rantings and should be addressed.
