Jenna Bush is Fierce

with one comment

Jenna Bush read to some hormonally challenged adults on Easter. She began to emulate our favorite girl Victoria Beckham – not that other fierce girl, Christian Soriano. She’s not fierce at all. She’s as fierce as an onion bagel with cream cheese.

Charlie Rose Beats Himself Up

leave a comment »

This has to be one of the funniest stories I’ve seen in quite some time. Charlie Rose, the PBS host, face planted in order to save his Macbook Air.

Sacrifice the face, protect the computer.

Check Tech Crunch for more hilarity.

Wes Anderson. Animated Movie?

with 2 comments

Wes Anderson has an upcoming animated movie based on the Roald Dahl story, Fantastic Mr. Fox. Stars such as George Clooney, Cate Blanchett, Anjelica Houston, and Jason Schwartzman (once again.) are attached to the movie. It’s set to realese some time in late 2009.

So far, it has been said that voice recording has begun to commence out in the field. Seriously. Voice parts are being recorded in forests, attics, and even underground.

I don’t know if the general public is as much of a fan of Wes Anderson as I am. But I have high hopes for a stop motion animated movie with his name attached. I just hope it doesn’t turn into another Tim Burton animated crap fast like Corpse Bride and Nightmare Before Christmas. He makes such horrible movies.

To tide you over I have attached Wes’ AMEX commercial.

Gawker is Pretentious

with one comment

I guess Paul Boutin of Valleywag wrote a memo to all his Gawker editor buddies a couple weeks ago about how to write for Gawker.

This is basically saying that Gawker has a set of rules to follow in all their posts. Meaning, that there is no longer any creative freedom in insulting celebrities, fashionishtas, the ugly, rich, and famous. Instead they have to tell there writers how to write. Their bloggers (or should we call them drones) can no longer incessantly beat down on the subjects of their posts. One memo excerpt suggest that they have to insult them in one cringe filled line and save the rest for later.
