Want to get worked up in a lather over “Jersey Shore“? Take your pick of things to complain about. The words “guido” and “guidette” are offensive! Snooki got punched in the face by a drunk man at a bar! Nearly all the men on the show are sexist skeezebags who objectify women!
None of these are the complaints I have for the show. I, personally, am shocked, dismayed and offended that “Jersey Shore” has ruined hot tubs for me forever. Keep reading »
My little nerd heart is freaking out right now! Thanks to WiseBread.com, I just discovered FreeDocumentaries.org, a site where you can download full-length documentary films online. (It appears to be legal, as the site claims to “follow all copyright laws.”) They’ve got (relatively) big-budget docs like Michael Moore’s “Sicko,” Morgan Spurlock’s “Super Size Me,” and Barbara Kopple’s “Shut Up And Sing” (the one that explored what happened to country stars The Dixie Chicks when one of them publicly criticized President Bush).

Our prayers to the Red Peppers and Sausage Gods have been answered: Rumor has it that Snooki, The Situation and the gang are coming back for another season in Seaside Heights. (Duh of the century, right? MTV ain’t no fool.)
Apparently, Vinny told a group of admirers at the “Youth In Revolt” after-party that MTV wants the “Jersey Shore” cast back this summer—a piece of information overheard by a New York Daily News gossip columnist. Now, a PR rep for MTV hasn’t officially confirmed this bit of gossip, but let’s not get caught up in details.
The next order of business: can someone puh-leeze find out if our girl Snooki will be getting her own show, “Snookin’ For Love“? [Gawker] Keep reading »
Oh, there’s something about men in uniform when you know they’ve got British accents, too! Prince Harry (my fave) posed with his brother Prince William for a painting by artist Nicky Phillips to hang in London’s National Portrait Gallery. [Times of London UK] Keep reading »
