I Don't Give a Rat's Ass About Kate Hudson's Sex Life Do You?: A Poll

Kate-hudson-alex-rodriguez Every morning, while the maids are cleaning my house and my chef is preparing my favorite breakfast of tartines and café au lait, I like to peruse the online tabloids to see what all the other rich, famous people are up to. Usually I'll find an amusing story about Jon Gosselin to share at bridge, or a tragic bit about Lindsay Lohan that always reminds me to make sure the nanny is raising my kids right.

But today the story on the front page of every tabloid was about how much Kate Hudson loves sex. I don't really care about Kate Hudson's sex life, unless of course she's sleeping with my pool boy.

Poll Smokin', Part Whatever

Smokin' Throughout the fabled history of MamaPop we've occasionally presented readers with a chance to let us know what they like, don't like, want to see more of, and want to see less of on MamaPop. We are, truth be told, your most humble and obedient servants above all else, here to dance for your entertainment like the trained monkeys we are. And so, as before, we have placed a poll-like item with clicky button thingies in the left-most sidebar on every page of this site, for your clicking pleasure. Please to enjoy.

Oh! Also! For those of you who like to use your words, we've created a page where you can leave us your thoughts, needs, desires, love notes, and hate mail. Go here, and get all verbal on our asses n'at.

You're the meaning in our lives, you're the inspiration,
xoxo Team MamaPop

PS: No one needs you more than we need you. No, seriously.

Help Team MamaPop Speak at BlogHer '09!

Picture_2 So, look. We've gone and submitted a conference session proposal to the folks at BlogHer to talk about pop culture writing (and reading) on the web, and whether we're all just gossipy harpies who should be ashamed of ourselves...or if we're all changing the very face of pop culture one Botox-laden post at a time. Or. Something. Catherine wrote it, and made it all smart. I'm just here to pimp it.

GO HERE to check out our pitch and please to click on the little link under the post title that says "I would be interested in attending this session." (You'll need a BlogHer.com login to do so, but you don't actually have to be registered for the conference or anything -- this is all a vague, squooshy process that just requires us to prove that people are interested in our idea. AND OF COURSE YOU ARE INTERESTED IN OUR IDEA. Our ideas are magic. Like unicorns. Magic, sparkly unicorns. With butterfly tramp stamps.)

Catherine, Tracey and I would be leading the discussion, but gobs of other MamaPop writers will be there and present and participating. GOBS! I guess maybe I should learn their names.

Meanwhile, furious behind-the-scenes discussion about our team uniform for the session will continue. Some of the options we're currently kicking around, after the jump:

New MamaPop Poll: Please To Vote!

It's time again for you, the people, to voice your thoughts about the important issues of the day here on MamaPop. This time, we're addressing the matter of world hunger, and how to best address the impending global climate crisis. OH I KID! Actually, we're just wondering what low-rent celebrity masochist is going to offer up to the universe the next celebutrainwreck reality TV show... because we're DEEPLY CONCERNED about the future. Of our snarking.

The poll can be found over in the far-right column on this very page. So cast your vote and have your say, and in doing so promote liberty and freedom. Of snarking.

(The MTV Video Music Awards are this Sunday at 9pm ET for anyone who just plans to rubberneck.)

Poll: Which Of The New Fall Shows Will Tank?

Screenshot For better or worse, lots of great (and awful) shows are destined to die on the Fall Programming Schedule vine this season. The question is only which will go first, and how fast?

So we've put together a little poll on the matter, visible in the center column on this page, to get a sense of what You The People are feeling about the network's upcoming offerings. Please to vote only once, for the show you believe is truly destined for the television scrapheap. Oh, and if by chance you haven't yet edumacated yourself regarding the Fall line-ups, TV Week has a fairly comprehensive run-down of the season, complete with video clips from the new shows!

Now go vote, mah betches, VOTE!

Poll Smokin'

Mamapop readers, we need your input! Since our recent open threads and liveblogging experiments have been so popular, we want to hear from you about which shows/events you'd like to see covered in this fashion in the future, so I've created a handy-dandy poll sos we can get your feedback. The poll is located in the center sidebar, just beneath our "Supported By" advertising (and fyi, this is where any/all future polls will reside). Please vote! And also please feel free to add clarifying comments/suggestions/etcetera in the comments here -- we really want your thoughts on this one.

Gracias, my peoples!

EDIT: On the subject of site bizness: A number of people have emailed us recently inquiring about possibly writing for Mamapop. And though we're incredibly flattered and humbled by the interest, we wanted to let people know that at this time we aren't taking on any additional authors. However, that certainly might change down the road, and if it does, we'll keep ya'll in mind for sure. Alright? S'alright. And thanks!
