Project Runway Recap: "A Little Bit of Fashion"

Runway Oh. Olympics. Right there, on that other channel, RIGHT NOW. This? Is not that. It's Project Runway. Bitches.


Something's Wrong With Angelina Jolie's Face: It's Officially Time to Panic

1ngelina_jolie As it turns out, Angelina Jolie has something weird happening on her face. And I think we all should talk about it. Because her face and things happening to her face are important.

She has some odd-looking muscle protrusions below her jaw-line. And Us Magazine.com has assembled a crack team of doctors to figure out what in God's name is happening to Angelina Jolie's face. Everyone try to stay calm.

Tiger Woods To Talk Friday: I Wonder If He'll Mention that Sex Thing

Tiger Woods Masters Win First let me say, I was a Tiger fan.  I was at the '97 Masters when he rolled to a record-breaking victory. I even got to high-five him. I'm sure he remembers it.  It happened during the day preceding the tournament, so it's possible I gave him the lucky edge he needed. It was really our victory. That's why I say to my partner with all respect in the world, shut the fuck up, Tiger. I don't care.

LOMGST! Lost Recap - The Substitute

Lockesubstitute Previously on LOST: Bitter Sawyer is bitter. Bitter Sawyer is also guilty-feeling, self-flagellating Sawyer, and Kate is still all, "Look at me! I'M PRETTY TOO!" Faux Locke is creepy and (as Ben saw, up close and personal) the smoke monster, and God (and Jacob) only knows what else. Richard with the FABULOUS eyeliner recognizes Faux Locke as Jacob's nemesis, so Faux Locke promptly punches him in the throat and carries him off into the jungle, but not before admonishing everyone that he's VERY disappointed in all of them (Jeez, Dad, way to break up a party). Real Locke remains dead, though in Dimension #2 (D2) -- the one in which the plane never crashed -- he's very much alive, if still quite wheelchair-bound. But keep in mind that whatever you do, don't tell him what he can't... BOOM!


You Can't Shut Roger Ebert Up, So Don't Even Try

Roger-ebert It's been four years since Roger Ebert could eat, drink or speak. But that hasn't stopped him from not only giving his unflinching opinions on the movies, but becoming a voice on the internet so loud it could shatter glass.

"The Bachelor: On The Wings of Fantasy Suite, Baby!" Recap

6a00d8341c5d9653ef0120a7eb1081970b Okay, this is The Episode. The episode that starts to turn Jake the Bachelor into Jake the Douchelor, because if I have to hear him wax non-poetic about how he's "falling in love with three different women" one more time I will retch. Jakey's been awfully good about not being The Douchelor, but he is on the gangplank this week. (Pirate reference number 1!) 

Let's get this trainwreck started.

Big Love Recap: Under One Roof

Big_love_bill I'll be honest. I had a really hard time tearing myself away from coverage of the Olympics to watch Big Love. I mean, how could the shenanigans of the Henricksons compare to the drama of mens' moguls or womens' speedskating? Well, after last night's episode, I'll never doubt Bill and Co. again.


Paris Hilton: Just Like Old Times

Paris-hilton-brazil-3 You know, it's been awhile since someone photographed Paris Hilton doing something stupid while drunk. Remember when that used to happen just about every day? You couldn't turn on the NEWS there, for awhile, without being confronted by an insufficiently-clad Paris Hilton doing something stupid. So these photos of Paris...dancing? writhing? something?...at a Valentine's Day launch party for...a beer? that she's promoting? whatever?...really fill me with a nice sense of nostalgia.

The Wild Hunt Glamorizes Vikings. Role-Players.

The_wild_hunt_movie_larp-266x300  I just saw the trailer for The Wild Hunt, an independent film directed b Alexandre Franchi that debuted at the Santa Barbara Film Festival, and now I'm so confused about my feelings that I may have to go see a therapist and try and figure out which one of my parents damaged my id in early development. I think it's about a LARP (Live Action Role Playing) excursion that goes horribly wrong, or maybe its about time-travelers who go back to Viking times. Or maybe it's about sexual assault, because there seems to be some of that in there too. Either way, I'm just going to go sit in the corner for a little bit and hug myself.


Flashback Friday - A Love Letter To Goth

Sandman-morpheus  Before there was emo, there was goth. And those of us who slathered on the eyeliner and backcombed our black-dyed hair, remember those days with a gentle fondness tempered with a healthy splash of hubris. Because if you were part of the Children of the Night, right now you're concurrently rolling your eyes and saying "Awwwwww!" like you just saw an especially cute kitten.


The Billboard Top 50 Sexiest Songs of All Time: My YouTube Rendition of "Copa Cabana" Isn't On It

1cyndiJust in time for Valentine's Day, Billboard is laying out the sexiest songs of all time and I'm going to make a mix tape.

You're dying to know what the #1 sexiest song of all time is, aren't you?  Would it shock you if I said the sexiest song ever was performed by Barbra Streisand?  It should.  If it doesn't surprise you, then your concept of sexy music frightens me.

There were some other surprises, though.  For me, some BIG ones.

Heidi Montag Sang a Song That Made Me Look Deep Into My Soul

Heidi-montag-superficial Oh, how did I miss this? With all the attention being given to Heidi Montag's cosmetic surgeries I didn't realize she had an album that came out a few weeks ago. And just as I was about to write her off as another empty-headed, auto-tuned, talentless nitwit, I listened carefully to her song Superficial and realized I might just be jealous.

They say I'm superficial  / Some call me a bitch / They're just mad cause / I'm sexy, famous and I'm rich 

Call me crazy but I think I've had an epiphany of self-reflection at the hands of Heidi Montag.

LOMGST! Lost Recap - What Kate Does

LostFinalSeasonPoster Previously on Lost: Once upon a time, Sawyer happily played house with Juliet in the Dharma village of the 1970s, until she got sucked down a electromagnetically charged shaft and died in Sawyer's arms (OR DID SHE? That's in Dimension #1, you'll recall). Sawyer is PISSED at Jack and blames him for Juliet's death (though isn't he really in love with Kate? Whatever, I can't keep track of all the romantic triangles and quadrangles and other odd geometric shapes at this point). Everyone gets captured by island Huns, who seem simultaneously sinister and helpful, as they bring Sayid back to life by holding him face down in a giant poopy jacuzzi, and then continue holding him down until they drown him, which doesn't make any sense whatsoever, but then again, really, how much of this show does? Unsurprisingly, an hour later, Officially Proclaimed Dead Sayid inexplicably sits up, looks around, and is all, Dude, WTF? BOOM!


19 Kids and Still Counting: Why The Duggars Will Continue to Have Children and Why We Need to Shutup About It Already

Michelle-duggar_2 The Duggars have been under a lot of fire recently after the recent pre-mature birth of their 19th child, Josie.  Josie was born 4 months prior to her due date after mom Michelle had complications with pre-eclampsia.

Criticism from the medical and parenting communities have been both harsh and sometimes completely false in terms of medical risk:
