L.A.’s Wango Tango fest gathers together pop stars and music fans for a day of music and fun. Justin Bieber was there, which makes sense, but also “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” trainwreck Taylor Armstrong. Does she even know who Justin Bieber is? There was lots of outrageous/horrible fashion, too, because 1) It’s a festival 2) It’s in Los Angeles. So consider that we’re grading on a curve as you flip through and check out the horror show after the jump!
It happens every year — you get attached to some new TV show, only to learn five or six episodes in that it’s not coming back after its debut season. It’s the sad lifecyle of TV — if a show doesn’t make the desired ratings, it’s gotta walk the plank. In the last few days, networks have been announcing their latest round of cuts — most which won’t surprise you (who ever watched “Gifted Man,” anyway?) But there are some surprises (“Pan Am” seemed to do pretty well). After the jump, all the TV shows that are getting canned to make way for new TV this fall. Keep reading »
[Amy Winehouse and I] spent a little time together and talked about [working together]. But, what little time we had, well, it was tense. She was in a bad state, God knows why. I think that the Adele thing had Amy freaked out. She liked her, but Adele’s success was making Amy feel upset, competitive, restless. Anyway, we lost touch briefly. And before she and I could really start the process of beginning a new album, it was too late.
–Mark Ronson reveals that Amy Winehouse, with whom he worked on her “Back To Black” album, was feeling really competitive and anxious about the success of another young, talented British female with a big voice: Adele.

It’s great the way the Russians keep innovating when it comes to weird pet tricks. Like take this guy, who blows in his dog’s face and causes the dog to “inflate.” If I blow in my parent’s dog’s face, Roxy just tries to lick me. Clearly Russian dogs are better. [Neatorama]
Remember Biff, the dumb villain in all three “Back To The Future” movies? The guy who famously told Michael J. Fox to “make like a tree and get out of here?” Well his real name is Tom Wilson, and people stop him all the time to talk about the movie series and ask him a bunch of questions. So he decided to cut to the chase and create a postcard that answers virtually any and all “Back To The Future”-related question you might have. Like, is Crispin Glover really as weird as he seems? (Answer: Not as weird as he wishes he was). And what was it like to work with the Delorean (Answer: Annoying). Read the whole postcard after the jump! Keep reading »
Office work is such a bore, am I right? Which is why this offer to just sit around listening to this “writer” tell “stories” and type them out sounds like a really great job opportunity. Of course, he’s not looking to pay just anyone to be his muse: you’ve got to be an attractive female and a good listener. You don’t even need to be a good speller, because he’s got someone for that. And don’t worry, the stories are “mostly really good.” I mean, he says they are, so they must be. [Craigslist]
