"Always Sunny" NOT Molesting Babies

Image
An interview with one of tv's funniest writers, Charlie Day from Always Sunny in Philadelphia(now starring Danny Devito)


TVGuide.com: Fox recently rebroadcast some of the first season's episodes, and they were heavily bleeped. Do you think the material works better on a cable channel like FX?

Day: Sure, I think it works better on FX. If we knew we were going to get censored, we would have written the show to get bleeped during more intentionally comedic times. But unfortunately, we got bleeped when they deemed it necessary. Actually, a few of our episodes we couldn't even get on Fox.





TVGuide.com: Which ones?

Day: Like, the abortion one. They basically said which ones we could and couldn't have on. We were grateful for the opportunity to put whatever on [Fox], so we didn't try to argue with them.

TVGuide.com: So they were cool with the "Charlie Gets Molested" but not "Charlie Gets an Abortion"?

Day: Apparently, America doesn't have any problem with…

Star Gets It From Queen Ted C

Image
Backstage Sass
I've appeared on The View a few times (three, to be exact-a-rooney about it). Was always a blast, a little bitchy, and most pleasant. After all, what's more gonzo than gabbin' with a bunch o' broads? Nothing. Wanna know why? Because men are typically unnecessarily acidic when they gossip--which, by the by, they do much more so than do gals, I'm convinced--the femmes just know how to have fun with the juice!Except for Star Jones Reynolds, that is.Every time I was on that morning talkfest, off-camera, the women--especially Barbara Walters and Joy Behar--were incredibly gracious with me. Oh, with the single exception of Star, that is. She would barely acknowledge me, even when I said hullo.Mind you, I've never written more than three words about the woman, not really interested. But she always had a way of laser-daggering me with those little eyes of hers, as if she was going to hate me, regardless, just in case I ever did write something about her i…

Pirates 2, Queer

Image
Depp proud of Sparrow's sexual ambiguityWednesday, June 28 2006, 16:11 BST - by Daniel Saney Johnny Depp has revealed that he is proud of the ambiguity of his Pirates of the Caribbean character's sexual orientation, since it adds a touch of realism.

Depp, who plays the slightly camp Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean films, assumed this position after reading Sodomy and the Pirate Tradition by Barry R Burg.

He now feels that the ambiguity is fitting as he suspects that the living situations of real pirates may have encouraged them to experiment.

"I like the idea of [Jack] being ambiguous because women were thought to be bad luck on ships and these pirates would go out for years at a time," Contactmusic quotes him as saying. "So, you know, there is a possibility that one thing might leads to another. You're lonely. You have an extra ration of rum..."

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest hits screens on July 6

Jewel, Gnarls Barkley Best Albums 2006?

Image
Jewel's finally on her way, lyrically and musically.
I've been together, but alone.
I've made love without love being shown.
I've seen sorrow in a pair of dice,
All things that came in two's made me cry
Until tonight.So I drive to you tonight
I was blind, now I have sight.
I could not leave you even if I tried.
You're heart beats inside of me.
Like a star in the dark of night,
Like birds lost in flight.
The clouds in the sky are blue
I belong with you.
Test Jewel's "Drive To You" for yourself, it's a mad good beat

Gnarls Barkley, the new Beatles.
I'm sure someone else will say it soon too. At the very least it's like Moby's "Play" before that was sold down the river.

Hey, hey, hey, there's truth in the thunder
Love in the lightning, the feeling is frightening
Yeah, isn't it exciting?
I'm something like stormy weather
If I weren't we would never
Huddle together, do I have to tell you
That I'm also the sunlight, that shines …

Galaxy Quest, Rent It Tonite!

Image
One of my favorite films, Galaxy Quest.

Best of performances by:
Tony Shalhoub,



Sam Rockwell,

and Alan Rickman.



I never really liked Sigourney Weaver



or Tim Allen,



but they as well leave good impressions in this gem of a movie.



Seems like Science Fiction or Fantasy, but all it really is?

Good Moviemaking. A supposition most anyone would be enthralled by: what if well loved fiction were true?It's a personal fave in books by Neil Gaiman or the 80's child flick The Goonies, we all want something to be real other than what is. from time to time at least.Looking back on this beautiful piece of film, Galaxy Quest,
you see quite a few actors on the edge, for some a fading career, for others a beginning brilliance.
Including Veronica Mars's dad. who rocked on just shoot me, which did pull a way passable news radio (being the best thing on tv with no one watching, a quite popular american pastime even before arrested development).Daryl Mitchell in Galaxy Quest before Spinal InjuryAfter…

Blu-Ray Sales slow

Blu-ray player sales off to a slow start Consumers adopt 'wait and see' approach in high-definition DVD war
Jane Hoskyn, vnunet.com26 Jun 2006
Samsung's high-definition Blu-ray DVD player finally went on sale in US shops on Saturday, but early reports suggest that the players are not flying off the shelves.

Roving Gangs of Drag Queens Attack New Orleans

Image
“A couple weeks ago, a group of them was outside and one looked like the guy who came in here and ripped us off so I locked the door on them,” Celino said. “I know maybe that’s rude, if they really were innocent people, but there’s nothing else we can do. You look like the queens who ripped us off so I’m sorry but I have to lock the door.” - New Orleans CityBusiness

Bitches will have what they need. Considering that area "escaped flooding"/systematically protected at the cost of other land predominantly settled by african americans, i'm not surprised.

black drag queens coming and taking your shit, you better watch out for the boldest of us.

still robbery and stealing ain't right, they'd have to take the whole town to even correctly approach the cost. ;)

i wonder what the response from the african american community will be? this would be a good time to recognize the fierce as adding something good to the minority whole, don'tcha think?

Oh, I'm so very radi…

DVD Analysts Stupid To Not Consider PS3?

Image
Analyst predicts stalemate in next-gen DVD war
Just as video game companies routinely publish games for use on different gaming systems, the majority of studios will soon be publishing movies for both HD DVD and Blu-Ray, Crotty said, adding that the resources and effort required to publish on two DVD formats are significantly less than programming video games to work on other consoles. - EETimes

Buy the PS3 - $499

Should the Blu-Ray player work correctly in the PS3, AND the blu-ray pops out it's purported 250 gb disc, I think non-compressed video and audio will win the day...

Swearengen Pissed Deadwood Cancelled

Image
"I thought the whole thing was handled shabbily," the actor says by phone from Los Angeles. "But what the f-, HBO and 'Deadwood' have been very good to me. [The show's] Al Swearengen has been one of the great characters of my career. "However, I think what's been lost in everybody slapping each other on the back, with a possible two two-hour movies to wrap up the series after this season, is that 'Deadwood' is one of the most acclaimed series on TV. A truly great show. So I was initially shocked. And now I'm sad." McShane says that the blame for the cancellation will always be like Kurosawa's "Rashomon," three versions of the same story. "You'll never know what the f- really happened," he says. - read it all at the ny daily news

Hype and glory

As Alan McGee books a made-up band, Dave Simpson looks at the science of creating a buzz

Tuesday June 20, 2006
The Guardian


It worked for Arctic Monkeys; it worked for Sandi Thom. No one should be too surprised that another act have now used the MySpace website - which spreads word of a band (and their downloadable songs) via a growing network of internet "friends" - to launch themselves to stardom. The difference is that Hope Against Hope are a scam, a spoof indie band "with no talent whatsoever" invented by Q magazine in order to prove that the Rupert Murdoch-owned site is now just another cog in the older industry phenomenon of hype.After just four weeks, Hope Against Hope had a devoted fanbase. Alan McGee - once a member of Tony Blair's Creative Industry Taskforce, and the man who discovered Oasis and the Libertines - even offered them a gig at his influential Death Disco club night...Hope Against Hope Myspace

Where the Wild Things Are

Image
EW: You've also just finished work on Spike Jonze's half-puppet,half-computer-animated adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are.

FW: Yeah. It's a pretty good cast. The first time we [Benicio Del Toro, Michelle Williams, and the other Wild Things voice actors] got together as a group, we went up in the hills into
this big Styrofoam world with all these big Styrofoam trees that we're hitting each other with. We were diving on top of each other and rolling around on the ground and grunting and playing and ducking. It was pretty unusual.
The movie is about people and their fears and their
hopes, so that's what we were trying to emphasize while we were having a lot of fun.

END OF THE WORLD WATCH CONTINUES

Image
THE world is hotter than it has been for four centuries - and probably the hottest for 2,000 years - the United States' most prestigious scientific organisation said yesterday. In a report to the US Congress, the National Academy of Sciences reported that the "recent warmth is unprecedented for at least the last 400 years and potentially the last several millennia". A panel of top climate scientists told politicians that the Earth is heating up and that "human activities are responsible for much of the recent warming". - Daily Scotsman

Chappelle Said Boycott but The Lost Eps run Sunday

Image
Having been unable to get Chappelle back, the network has pieced together the sketches he did before bolting and named them "Chappelle's Show: The Lost Episodes." The clips in the first episode take direct aim at what was then the comedian's newfound fortune. In the first, he's seen trying to convince a barber that he doesn't get paid much on cable. Just then, BET reports that he's getting $55 million. Suddenly, the price of his haircut goes to $11,000. Later, a guy washing his car jacks up the price, too. "You're the richest funniest man in America," the guy tells Chappelle. Chappelle is also hauled into an IRS office. The feds want more since he's making more. Chappelle's bodyguard is shot there, and his last words are: "Your greed did this to me, Dave. ... You didn't have to do two more seasons. You know they're going to say it's not as good as last year." It's a funny moment, and one that offers an int…

Aaron Spelling Dies at 83

Spelling passed away at 6:25 p.m., his publicist, Kevin Sasaki, tells PEOPLE. The cause of death was complications from the stroke he'd suffered on June 18.

Jim Carrey & Jenny McCarthy HOT

Image
From Wizbang Pop!
Swear I read somewhere Jim Carrey had gone born-again. Which is why I wondered about his MTV Movie Award spectacle, with the wings and angels, and MTV using heavenly light filters when he appeared on stage.

But they are both VERY talented people, and it's nice to see two coming together.

Scientology is the Devil

Hubbard policy of 25 February 1966, 'Attacks on Scientology,'...states, Scientology must respond to attacks by '...attacking the attackers only. NEVER agree to an investigation of Scientology. ONLY agree to an investigation of the attackers.

SCIENTOLOGY IS EVIL
[...]Because of the continued refusal to cooperate, Lyn [Froyland]
was rapidly assigned to the RPF's RPF. This was several steps down
from the RPF, in the boiler room under the Ft. Harrison hotel
building. It was a dark, filthy, smelly place where the huge
boilers roared and clanked day and night and where the rats lived.
Lyn was chained to a pipe down there for weeks, under guard.

2004 Election Stolen, Also Bush in Closet (Gay)

Image
Some Might Call It Treason: An Open Letter to SalonJune 16, 2005 -- NEW YORK (Mark Crispin Miller) -- Two weeks ago, Rolling Stone came out with "Did Bush Steal the 2004 Election?" -- a masterful investigative piece by Robert Kennedy, Jr., arguing that Bush & Co. stole their "re-election" in Ohio, and pointing out exactly how they did it. Primarily because of Kennedy's good reputation, and the mainstream credibility of Rolling Stone, the article has finally opened many eyes that had been tightly shut to the grave state of American democracy.One week after Kennedy's article appeared, Salon posted an attack upon it by Farhad Manjoo, the magazine's technology reporter. That piece contained so many errors of fact and logic, and was throughout so brazenly wrong-headed, that several hundred readers sent in angry letters, many of them brilliantly refuting some of Manjoo's misconceptions and mistakes, and quite a few demanding that Salon cancel their su…

Turtle's a Rich Bitch: Entourage, Sun, 9pm EST HBO

Entourage's Jerry Ferrara (daTurtle!) talks about the LA lifestyle, free sneakers and the joys of room service.
HBO
You must be enjoying a few of the fringe benefits of being a working actor in LA.

FERRARA
Well you know what it is, it's just weird because when you're broke, you're with the same pair of sneakers for two years. But once you get a little bit of money and you start doing well, everyone sends you s*** for free. I still can't really grasp this concept. I mean, I haven't paid for a pair of sneakers in a year and a half. I can't understand it. And I have like two hundred pairs now, so I give some to my friends. It's just unbelievable. Four years ago I was wearing the same Nikes, cleaning them up with Clorox bleach cleaner. HBO
Do you find it hard to be an actor if you're shy?

FERRARA
No, because it's a whole different kind of shyness. With acting, I'm not shy because it's almost like an excuse to do these things. If I have to go hit …

Looks Like Someone Finally Told Jake The World Thinks Him Gay

Image
Personally, I wished all the discussion of Toothy Tile* had included the possibility of bisexuality. Even so I couldn't imagine Jake being the closested homo folk thought. Neither did Defamer, for the most part.

But I appreciated that Jake didn't go out of his way to flaunt heterosexuality during the Brokeback Funny days.

Then I watch him at the this month's MTV Movie Awards avoiding hugs from men, acting ANTI-GAY; not at all cool.

Oh, well here's some Best of Brokeback Mountain clips.



*My bet's on Eddie Murphy.

Was just watching one of her earliest roles, in my fav, King of the Hill. The 1994 Steven Soderbergh gem. She was one of the great unfamous teen actresses of the 90's, even before Roswell and Grey's Anatomy.
