Mark your calendars! Less than six months until we can gorge on all Oprah programming all the time. With OWN’s launch date set for January 2011, the lineup is starting to come together. This week, it was confirmed that Rosie O’Donnell will be joining Shania Twain and Sarah Ferguson on the OWN team. All we know so far is that Rosie’s as yet unnamed daytime talk show will be based in New York and “fans can anticipate a fun, uplifting show with Ms. O’Donnell’s playful and energetic style.” Let’s hope it goes better than her stint on “The View.” Very important question: who from the lineup do we want to shun, shag, or marry? Find out after the jump. [Washington Post] Keep reading »
Somehow the summer has already started slipping through our fingers but until it’s all gone, it’s really important to give yourself a break! And there are really few better ways to get that than to curl up in a movie theater … I mean, assuming that island vacation is not within your budget. This week, get outside your head with “The Other Guys,” “Step Up 3D,” “Twelve” and “Middle Men.” Keep reading »
Here’s a combination for you that’s almost as good as the chocolate, marshmallow, and graham cracker of a s’more. Amanda Palmer, the amazing frontwoman of the Dresden Dolls, has a cover album out. (Told you all the cool kids were doing it.) The concept: she plays Radiohead hits, from “Creep” to “Idiotech.” On a ukulele. It’s called, fittingly, Amanda Palmer Performs the Popular Hits of Radiohead on Her Magical Ukulele. “I picked up the ukulele three years ago as a joke. I soon discovered what a powerful instrument it really is,” she told AOL. “[Radiohead's] songs are dark and morose, but still in major keys. That’s why they work on what is an inherently joyful instrument. It’s a combination of darkness and light.” Check out the result after the jump. [AOL]

We have been woefully remiss is posting “Modern Lady,” the new CurrentTV web series starring Erin Gibson that replaced Sarah Haskins‘ late, great “Target: Women” show. Allow us to atone for our sins with today’s offering: Erin Gibson asking why all of TV’s lady cops are the same — with a deep and disturbing secret, a slutty outfit always at the ready, and a patented I’m-hot-but-don’t-eff-with-me look on her pretty face.
Seriously, television, don’t you know that real cops have hair that looks like this? [Current] Keep reading »
I may be slightly lost when it comes to dating myself, but I know a perfect match when I see one. Which is why I would like to set up Victoria, the Russian artist who paints with her boobs, and Tim Patch, the Australian known as Pricasso who paints with his peen. Seriously, not only is their work amazingly similar, but they’d look kind of cute as a pair. They could make beautiful, nude art together. Just saying. Keep reading »
Earlier this week, reports surfaced that the Beach Boys weren’t putting their hands up for Katy Perry‘s summer anthem, “California Gurls.” The word on the street was that they were suing Katy for having Snoop Dogg chant their classic line, “I wish they all could be California girls” at the end of the track. Talk about melting a popsicle.
But today it appears that is only half the story. Keep reading »
I’ve still been tearing up every now and then thinking about the rainbow Chris Lambton’s mom sent him from the other side right after Ali Fedotowsky dumped him for Roberto in Bora Bora on “The Bachelorette.” My heart was bleeding for him with his hot tattoo of his mom’s signature. Keep reading »
