You Might Want to Pick Woody Harrelson For Your Adult Kickball Team.

Woody-Harrelson Hey, I'm not trying to jock up the joint over here. This is a pop culture website, not a sports blog. So I'll spare you the details about why you should be watching the World Cup even if you're not a sports fan (sanctioned daytime drinking and several shirtless menfolk, for starters). But I wouldn't be your friend if I didn't show you this pop culture/sports crossover moment of glory, surprisingly courtesy of a star of film and television. Seriously, in terms of sports, this is, like, better than Rudy.

Revisiting June 1991

Sonic1-eu-front Ah, June - the month when the schools close forcing me to take care of my own children ALL. DAY. LONG.


June is also the month where I go to buy my husband a father's day card only to be inundated with graduation cards reminding me that I graduated from high school almost 20 years ago. True story. I graduated from high school 19 years ago in good old 1991. Remember 1991?

Raise Your Hand if You Didn't Watch the "LOST" Finale

Lost-square I know that I run the risk of getting kicked off of the site for admitting this, but I have a confession: I didn't watch the LOST finale.

2012 Summer Olympics: Filled With Tea And Crumpets And Creepy, One-Eyed Aliens

Olympics-mascots The official mascots for the 2012 Olympics have been revealed.  Something about having one giant camera eye.  I...am so afraid.

iPhone Advertisement Hurt My Feelings

Iphone-chicken  I love my iPhone unapologetically. I literally take it to bed with me. I read books on it before I go to sleep. That being said, the current iPhone ad really pisses me off.

For $16,000 You Can Look Like Jessica Rabbit - Sort Of

Annette-jessica_rabbit_makeover Annette Edwards has always loved Jessica Rabbit. Okay, maybe not always, but certainly since 1988.

What do you do when you adore and admire a cartoon character? Get a tattoo? Buy an original drawing? Oh, hell no. That is weak. You get plastic surgery to look like her. Duh.

FOX and ABC Still Hate Plus-Sized People

Lane-bryant-ashley-graham-bra-ad-underwear-lingerieFOX and ABC got caught being prejudiced again. The last time I wrote about them it was about how they wouldn't run a gay dating commercial. This time, ABC refused to air a Lane Bryant commercial because it showed too much cleavage.

Please Bow Your Head For A Minute of Mayhem

Malcolm-mclaren Any good fan of the Sex Pistols felt a little bit saddened when they heard the news earlier this month of Malcolm McLaren's passing. McLaren's family has come up with an idea of what we can all do with our grief.

Malcolm McLaren's son has asked that at midday today, we all observe a moment of mayhem.

Too Bad Ladies, Prince William is Off of the Market

Prince William Kate Middleton Rumors have it that Prince William and Kate Middleton are getting hitched. The word on the street is that June 3rd and 4th are blocked out on the royal calendar and somehow that indicates that these kids are going to announce the engagement in June. If this is true it means what you think it means.

That's right ladies, Middleton wins. She just scored the most eligible bachelor in the world. I mean, now that Tom Brady is married the second in line to the British throne isn't a bad catch.

He is cute too.

Is Lily Allen Fleeing the Scene?

Lily_allenLily Allen, the über-cute British songstress of such well-known songs as "Smile" and "Fuck You", has declared that she is not going to record a third album and has no plans to tour again in the near future.

To this a wail a hearty NOOOOOOOOOOO!

I love me some Lily Allen. I love that her sweet voice belies the punch of her lyrics. I love that her British accent still comes through when she sings. I love her sometimes whimsical sense of style. Not so secretly, I like to dream that she and I meet up for pints with sides of mushy peas and jaw about the racket that is selling creative products. Lily and I duck out for a smoke, and she laughs at the impotence warning on my Canadian cigarettes package. Of course, she finds none of this creepy. Imagination is a wonderful thing.

Here's traumatic news Allen allegedly wrote on her weblog about her decision:
