Come the holiday season, I’m all abuzz with warm, fuzzy feelings. The world is all aglitter with Christmas lights, hot cocoa and cider sit warm in my belly, dogs wear absurd sweaters, and I can’t stop smiling. I practically piss eggnog. From the day after Thanksgiving through Boxing Day, I delve into a playlist of about 120 Christmas songs—and counting. That’s roughly six and a half hours of music. I have five recordings of “Jingle Bells” alone. There’s no cure for my holiday hysteria (and if there were, I’m certain it’d be shaped like a tiny candy cane). Keep reading »
We love sloths, and we couldn’t be happier that the slow little buggers will be getting their own one hour television show on Animal Planet, debuting this Saturday evening. Mark your calendars!
The “30 Rock” season six promo is here! When the show comes back on January 12, Liz Lemon is hiding something from the “TGS” cast and crew. Is it a baby? A new boyfriend? The secret recipe for the dust on Sabor de Soledad chips? If I know Liz Lemon (and Jack Donaghy, and Jenna Maroney), she won’t be able to keep it a secret for long. Oh, blerg! [Celebuzz]

I poured through Stieg Larsson’s Girl With the Dragon Tattoo book series in, like, three weeks, utterly captivated with the compelling story line(s), complex characters, and great writing, somewhat of a rarity for page-turning beach reads. Most of all, I was obsessed with the character of Lisbeth Salander, the unlikely heroine of Larsson’s trilogy. Tough as nails, emotionally guarded, and utterly brilliant, with dozens of piercings and tattoos, Lisbeth is a victim turned warrior. I am excited to see Rooney Mara make the character her own in the American film adaptation of “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo,” which hits theaters Dec. 21. (Check out an exclusive photo from the film, above!)
In Lisbeth’s honor, here are 12 other kick ass female film and TV characters and the women who played them.
“Ru Paul’s Drag Race” Season 4 looks absolutely sick! Based on this preview, we should prepare to gag on some serious eleganza because these queens are serving up reality realness like never before. Work! January 30, 2012. Calendar marked. The only thing that could make it more of a main event in my life is if Ru invited me to be a extra special guest. Nobody cares about Kelly Osbourne, right? And I’m not just throwing shade. [NYMag]
Marcel the Shell with Shoes On is becoming quite the celebrity! After garnering millions of fans with his YouTube videos, Marcel just released a book, and may soon be seen in a new TV show. He and his parents, Jenny Slate and Dean Fleischer-Camp, were recently interviewed on Williams’ new show “Rock Center,” and Marcel was not shy about giving as good as he got. When Williams asked Marcel what it was like having only one eye, the little shell shot back, “Has having one nose affected you in any way?” Boo-yah.
