There may be nothing quite as wonderful as listening to Kurt Loder reporting about the burgeoning cyber revolution in 1995. Loder, who remains MTV’s lone staunch cynical dad figure, discusses in-depth the “world wide computer network” and its many “special interest truck stops” called websites. Enjoy taking a peak at awesomely antiquated Geocities sites and watching pre-YouTube Foo Fighters videos. As Coolio helpfully explains, “If it ain’t on the information superhighway baby, where is it?” [YouTube

Heidi Fleiss has a new love in her life. Make that ‘loves,’ as there are more than 20 of them. Almost 18 years after going to jail for three years for running a prostitution ring, Heidi has started a new kind of harem—a legal one.

She got the birds from an eccentric neighbor who passed, leaving behind hundreds of exotic birds in a trailer. Heidi explains that she decided to adopt the parrots because thy are “the pimpin’ birds.” She says, “It’s been a crazy way to reinvent myself, but I love these birds and I will be successful.” Whatever that means.

Umm, hello. We are far too obsessed with the official poster for “The Ides of March,” the upcoming flick that stars George Clooney as a a presidential candidate whose campaign is derailed when one of his aides, Ryan Gosling, becomes caught up in a nasty scandal.

And thanks to the flicks’ two lead men, straight women love it all the way through just because of the eye candy. Check out the trailer, after the jump! [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
