If Someone Made A Movie About Twitter …

The upcoming Facebook flick — “The Social Network,” starring Jesse Eisenberg and Justin Timberlake — looks hella dramatic. Waaay too serious for a movie about the thing that brought the world Farmville. Far more interesting? A movie about Twitter.

Oh, by the way: “The baby just pooped. #turdalert” [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Quickies: Shania Twain Might Be The Next “Idol” Judge & Britney Spears Is Back In The Studio, Y’all

  • J.Lo may be out as the next “American Idol” judge — is Shania Twain next in line? [TMZ]
  • On “Golden Girls,” Blanche lived among retirees in Florida. But in real life, the late, great Rue McClanahan lived in one helluva swanky pad. There’s a hidden passageway behind the spice rack! [NYMag.com]
  • Sheryl Crow’s 2010 backstage tour rider is obnoxiously nitpicky, but at least in an eco way. The singer requires “napkins made of 100 percent recycled fiber,” biodegradable cups and dinnerware, and organic produce and locally sourced water. Have fun with that, caterers. [The Smoking Gun]
  • Let us now imagine David Beckham having sex: An Australian gossip mag claims Posh and Becks are expecting another kid. The couple has not commented on the rumor. [Mirror UK]

Little Girl Hears Her Parents Saying “Uhh-Uhh” Through Their Bedroom Wall


When I was 11 years old, I woke up in the middle of the night and heard very upsetting sounds coming from down the hall. It sounded like my mom was sick, she was moaning so loudly. Concerned for her well-being, I went bursting into my parents’ room and, well, let’s just say my mom wasn’t sick but suddenly I was. Luckily, this little girl had enough sense to stay in her room and just listen to what her parents were up to. You’re both in trouble now! (For the record, the way these parents are handling the situation is more amusing and less humiliating than the way my dad did — the next morning he joked, “So, I guess you saw your mother and I making the beast with two backs last night” and I basically couldn’t look him in the eye for the next six months. The King Lear reference didn’t make it any easier.) [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

New Bizarre Fetish: Women With Swords

I’m not quite sure I understand this new trend of women posing for glamour shots while holding swords. Like this woman, who looks off wistfully anon for her knight in shining armor while cradling the hilt of her favorite dagger. Oh Lady Guinevere, put it back in its sheath! I guess this is like the medieval version of packing heat?

More pics of women randomly posing with swords after the jump.

Jane Lynch To Host “Saturday Night Live”

Facebook users are doing an awesome job of casting “Saturday Night Live” hosts. In the spring, a group was formed on the site angling for Betty White to host an episode, which she did in May. More recently, a group started to get Jane Lynch, aka Sue Sylvester of “Glee,” the gig. And lo and behold it worked. Shall we take bets on what color track suit she’ll be wearing when she hosts?

Furry Fever: Man Becomes The Dog He Never Had


Meet Gary Matthews — or, as he likes to be called, Boomer the Dog. Matthews, it seems, developed an affinity for a canine on the ’80s TV show “Boomer the Dog” when he was just a little kid, and has shaped his entire life around the fictional sheep dog. He dresses like a human sometimes, but prefers to go out on the town decked in his custom-made Boomer suit. Matthews loves his doggie persona so much that he’s actually petitioned the courts to legally change his name to Boomer. Not surprisingly, Gary/Boomer is unemployed. Keep reading »

The “Cathy” Comic Strip Was “Sex & The City,” “Bridget Jones,” And “30 Rock” Before Their Time

By now you’ve probably read a news article with the lede: “Ack! The ‘Cathy’ comic strip is ending!” Yes, it’s true. Cartoonist Cathy Guisewite, 60, announced yesterday that she will retire the 34-year-old comic strip in October for the usual reasons: to spend more time with her family and pursue other creative projects.

It’s as good a time as any to put the old girl down. After decades as a swinging desperate single gal, the Cathy character married her cartoon beau, Irving, in 2005. Cathy’s other trials and tribulations — fending off both unwanted pounds and unwanted mothering — are neuroses she’ll apparently never get over.

As stereotypical as the “Cathy” comic strip (which I’ll admit I haven’t read regularly since high school) was regarding single ladies, I’m not about to say “Good riddance!” Yes, she was obsessed with finding a husband. Yes, she was obsessed with her scale. I’ll just say it: she was annoying. But “Cathy” was also pretty groundbreaking. Keep reading »

Turns Out Piano Cat Is A Little Mozart

Nora the cat was an amateur pianist—her parents simply posted videos of her diddling away on YouTube—until a Lithuanian composer took notice of her talent. Mindaugas Piečaitis (can you pronounce this?) decided to write a concerto for the kitty—ahem, excuse us, CATcerto. The four-minute piece is performed with a video of Nora playing in the background as an orchestra accompanies her. It will probably make you cry. [Catcerto] Keep reading »
