I’m looking forward to to seeing Sean Penn’s upcoming film, “This Must Be The Place,” where he plays a rich, depressed ’80s musician married to a fire fighter. His character, Cheyenne, is loosely based on director Paul Sorrentino and Robert Smith of The Cure with a dash of Iggy Pop and David Byrne — which means he’s a goth. Yesss! Even though some might say guyliner and Doc Martins are not the most flattering on Sean, his bravery to go goth makes him hot to me. “I’m quite convinced that there will be plenty of audience reaction [to my look] that is — I’m going to use the word ‘challenged.’ But there was a choice to make, I made it,” Sean said. That’s right Sean, goth is a choice. And you wear it well. I’ll always have a soft spot for a goth man. So sensitive, so depressed, so sexy in black, so skilled at doing the pain dance. You can take the girl out of the goth club, but you can’t take the goth club out of the girl. I’ve rounded up some of the hottest goths onscreen. Keep on clicking for your daily dose of goth porn.

Before she made a name for herself as the token crazy bitch on this season of “The Bachelor,” Courtney Robertson (or “Cuntney” as Amelia lovingly [Really! -- Editor] refers to her), appeared in this “routinely spectacular” Caesars Palace commercial. I may be interpreting the story line incorrectly, but is she supposed to be a working girl? Anyhow, on a totally unrelated note, I just realized that Courtney is from the same hometown as me and the same age as my younger brother. Hmmm. If you’ll excuse me, I have some sleuthing to do.
There’s a lot of glitz and glamour in the world of ice skating. There’s also a lot of wackadoodle facial expressions. These talented skaters were all captured making crazy faces at the ISU European Figure Skating Championships and U.S. Figure Skating Championships this past weekend. And yes, I know I’m going to hell for laughing at them, thank you very much. [Buzzfeed]
Cupid the cat was found wandering the streets of Houston, Texas, with an arrow shot straight through him. The poor little ginger buddy survived several days on the streets with the arrow embedded in his body, before rescue workers were able to remove it. Luckily, no major organs were damaged, and after he recovers, he’ll be up for adoption. Insert your own predictable “nine lives” joke here. [Purr Paws Rescue]
Sitcoms for everyone! Mindy Kaling is the latest lady we love to get her own show: a source tells NYmag.com that Fox will be ordering a pilot written and starring the fabulous Miss K. The “Office” star will play an OB/GYN as ”young Bridget Jones type … trying to navigate both her personal and professional lives.” Obstretics and gynecology are actually something our girl Mindy knows about in real life, seeing as her mama is a gyno in Boston. I’m suspending judgment for now: I love Mindy Kaling as much as the next 20something liberal arts degree-holding urban female, but it remains to be seen where stirrups and Pap smears are funzies on TV.
