October 29, 2009

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Levi Jonhson- set to show it all before the camera the middle of next month “in order to get the pictures out for the holidays- really has nothing to offer. His stories are really lame, and he’s milking what mild oddities he has for everything he can get out of it.Every time he opens his mouth about Sarah Palin and every time she responds, it moves her further away from the Oval Office.Two famewhores who will use anyone in their obsession for attention. They were made for each other.Ken Kupchik from Air America compiled a funny list of potential bomshells..

  • 10) Sarah was the one who gave Kanye West that bottle of Hennessey before the VMA’s.
  • 9) Sarah Palin threatened to beat up Joe Lieberman if he doesn’t filibuster health care reform.
  • 8) She donated the $150,000 worth of clothes from the RNC to Michelle Obama’s sick wardrobe.
  • 7) She voted for Barack Obama during the 2008 Presidential elections after watching this.
  • 6) Even she thinks Glenn Beck is an idiot.
  • 5) Levi got the idea to pose for Playgirl after finding Todd Palin’s secret magazine stash.
  • 4) She really could not see Russia from her house.
  • 3) She de-friended John McCain on Facebook after the campaign.
  • 2) Palin is the one who leaked the Republican health care plan to Alan Grayson.
  • 1) Sarah Palin actually wrote her book Going Rogue.

Spike Jonze’s Bitchslaps Kanye West

October 29, 2009

To promote yesterday’s iTunes release of the pair’s new short, We Once Were a Fairytale, Spike Jonze posted this medium-funny behind-the-scenes video of him pretending to slap a distracted Kanye West on the set. Given Kanye’s popularity these days, this seems like pretty smart marketing. Also, bear in mind that this clip was shot before Kanye pissed Spike off for real by leaking Fairytale on his blog last week, so it might be the first in a series.

Bronson Pinchot on Tom Cruise’s Homophobia and Denzel one of the most unpleasant human beings!

October 22, 2009

Hilarious interview with Bronson Pinchot, who claims Tom Cruise made ‘constant’ homophobic comments as a 20-year-old.Let’s join him as he recalls the Risky Business set:

Risky Business (1983)””Barry”

BP: We didn’t know it was going to be a big hit. We thought Tom [Cruise] was the biggest bore on the face of the Earth. He had spent some formative time with Sean Penn”we were all very young at the time, Tom was 20, I was 23. Tom had picked up this knack of calling everyone by their character names, because that would probably make your performance better, and I don’t agree with that. I think that acting is acting, and the rest of the time, you should be you, but he called us all by our character names. He was tense and made constant, constant unrelated homophobic comments, like, “You want some ice cream, in case there are no gay people there?” I mean, his lingo was larded with the most There was no basis for it. It was like, “It’s a nice day, I’m glad there are no gay people standing here.” Very, very strange.

Years and years later when people started to torment him with that, I used to think “God, that’s really fitting, because he tormented a lot of people as a 20-year-old.” He made such a big deal about it. Same thing with Eddie Murphy”I remember somebody calling and saying, “You’ll never guess who was just caught with a transvestite!” [Laughs.] And I remember thinking that seemed fitting, because there are certain people in showbiz who make it an agenda, every third sentence has to have something knocking that life choice, and you think, “What are you doing?” Like, these women came up to me in a restaurant”I was wearing a bright red shirt, and I was with some friends, and they said, “Would you like to join our club? We wear red.” What kind of choice is that? If you spent many years in the theater, and then you show up in movies, and people have on their to-do list for the day that they’re going to make a comment every third sentence, it strikes you as very strange. I just thought it was very funny that years later, that became his bugaboo. Which is a nice 1930s term I thought you’d enjoy.

AVC: Do you think he was just insecure? Or that he was young?

BP: I really don’t know. It is what it is; there’s nothing I can add to it. If someone’s 20 years old and every third line out of their mouth is anti-something specific, then draw your own conclusion. I thought it was very weird. Similarly, there’s a certain type of middle-aged woman that will tell you within 20 seconds of meeting you that she can’t find anyone to take her to bed. And that really strikes me as strange, too, like, “Why are you telling me that?” I don’t like any kind of conversational agenda; it makes me uncomfortable. I just think it’s weird. Unless you’re with your very best friends and you’re being silly. Then you can do whatever you want.

Sarah Palin to appear on Oprah

October 21, 2009

sarah_palin_makeup

Sarah Palin, the former Republican vice-presidential candidate on Oprah November 16th- big hot fuck*ng mess.Hands down for sure its a public relations scheme as she’ll appear just the day before publication of her memoir, Going Rogue: An American Life.At the end of last year, Winfrey said she had invited Palin to appear and

she didn’t talk to me. But maybe she’ll talk to me now that she has a book deal

Unsuprisingly,the book is already ranked second on Amazon’s bestseller list, kept from the top spot by a new Stephen King novel. Bad- mouthing US commentators have speculated that recent weak ratings for Winfrey’s show could have been caused in part by her support for Obama alienating conservative viewers.

Queen Latifah ft Missy Elliott – Fast Car [A FORD MUSTANG AD]

October 20, 2009

The queen, Queen Latifah that is, has released a new music video featuring Missy Elliott called “Fast Car”.At first sight, I found the song good, rocking not to mention that Im huge fan of Latifah,but while looking closer I was bewildered by something : on the entire set she’s heavily promoting with style and class the New Ford Mustang.Unsuprisingly,the song is called ” Fast Car”.Check the piece and you can clearly see the Ford Mustang branding angle that this video will have.I’m left with one question : If a major struggling company like Ford – they signed a branding partnership with Queen Latifah – is the one to please for an Artist, what happens next ? Corporate songs ?
