McSweeney’s Dreams Up “The Baby-Sitters Club: The College Years”

Were you a Baby-Sitters Club enthusiast? Come on, just admit it. Those books were the highlight of my late-elementary and early-middle school years. Oh, the ladies of Stoneybrook, Connecticut! Remember bossy, take-charge Kristy, creative and fashionable Claudia, shy and reliable Mary Anne, sophisticated and logical Stacey, and Cali girl Dawn? Remember the meetings, the diaries, and best of all … the drama? OMG, these characters were so real to me that I think I was deluded into believing that they were actual friends. I remember the empty feeling when I finished the very last Super Special. It was the end of an era.

Did you ever wonder what would have become of these girls had Ann M. Martin written about them past 8th grade? Keep reading »

Black People Like To Tan Too!

How narrow-minded of Jezebel to question why a black pageant contestant would need a spray tan! Sure, Victoria’s mother on “Toddlers & Tiarasis feeding into the overly-primped beauty ideal that is plaguing child beauty pageants, but to assume that she was overdoing the pageant preparation because she was tanning her already brown child is plain wrong. News flash: some black folks do enjoy tanning. It’s one of my most relaxing summer pastimes, which I learned from my mother who is about Victoria’s complexion. And yes, there are varying degrees of darkness, but what I like is the golden undertone that safe(r) tanning gives me. Maybe next time Jezebel will be more open-minded when it comes to child beauty pageants and just hate on them like every other rational-thinking person. Keep reading »

You Know You Want It: “Tool Academy 2″

Ah, “Tool Academy.” Quite possibly one of the most awesomely awful shows on TV — and I mean that in a good way. Dedicated to seeking out guys who act like tools and sending them off to Tool Academy for an inner and outer makeover with their fed-up girlfriends, VH1′s reality dude show is one of my favorites. Why? I do not know. I guess there’s something deeply appealing about seeing total jerks being turned into better men. There are too many guys out there with spray tans, spiked hair, and man thongs for this country not to need a show like this. In any case, as it turns out, there’s a “Tool Academy 2″ on the way! And this season actually looks more obnoxious. Check out the latest batch of tools here. Premieres August 31. Keep reading »

Scarlett Johansson Teams Up With Pete Yorn In A New Music Video

It seems Scarlett Johansson is the go-to Hollywood starlet for music videos these days. First, there was the video she made with Bob Dylan for his single, “When The Deal Goes Down,” in which she was featured in a “montage of sixties-style home movie clips.” Then, she starred in Justin Timberlake’s music video for his single, “What Goes Around Comes Around,” in which she’s a blond bombshell Timberlake spends the duration of the video seducing. Now, Scarlett joins Pete Yorn in a video for the single “Relator,” from their collaborative album, “Break Up.” Keep reading »

Pee Wee’s Back in Da Playhouse

Mecca Lecca High, Mecca Hiney Ho! Pee Wee has reappeared from pervert obscurity and is taking his Playhouse to the stage. Pee Wee, Jambi the Genie, Miss Yvonne, Pterri the Pterodactyl, and Clocky (minus Phil Hartman as Captain Carl, RIP) will be bringing the magic to the Music Box Theater in Los Angeles for 19 live performances in November. I know I’ll be there in wing-tip shoes and a red bowtie. I’m pretty sure “nostalgia” is the secret word. [Nerd Squared] Keep reading »

Boob Tube: The Return Of “Mad Men” Plus Everything Else On TV This Weekend

Mad Men” is finally back after a hiatus that drove me mad (Ha. Ha.), and according to reviews, it’s better than ever. I’m mostly looking forward to lusting after the new season’s chic outfits, fetching hairstyles, and the oh-so-sexy Don Draper, but the plot should be interesting as well. Last season ended with quite a few cliff hangers. Sterling Cooper is about to undergo one heck of a merge, which means quite a few job loses. Sounds familiar… To top that, Betty finds out she’s pregnant, Peggy reveals to Pete that she gave their baby away, and Joan is raped by her fiance. What Drama! The recent “Mad Men” ads have gotten me all excited for the return of the “sexiest show on television,” and I’ll surely be tuning in at 10 pm on Sunday. And don’t worry — if you have plans then, you can catch the rerun at eleven that night. I might have to watch both…

After the jump, check out this weekend’s TV schedule. Keep reading »

Trailer Park: “District 9,” “The Time Traveler’s Wife,” “The Goods,” “Ponyo”

Hope you’re caught up on your summer movies by now because there’s a slew of them coming out this weekend, and they are all very different. If you’re feeling romantic, check out “The Time Traveler’s Wife.” If you’re in a cartoony mood, get psyched for “Ponyo.” If you’re feeling discriminatory towards aliens, watch “District 9.” And if you want a laugh and a new crush, get a ticket for “The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard.” Keep reading »

Anderson Cooper And “Real Housewife” NeNe Take Their Relationship To The Next Level


Anderson Cooper and NeNe Leakes truly heart each other. Their romance began a year ago, during the first season of the “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” Anderson appeared on “Ellen” and said, “I like to keep abreast of the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta.’ I don’t even know where to begin with NeNe. You have to sort of watch to enjoy the fullness of NeNe.” He motioned towards his chest. Keep reading »

Will Chick Lit Survive The Recession?

Chick lit just got a whole lot less expensive. No, the price of the sometimes throwaway-quality books hasn’t gone down, but many recently published and upcoming books in this genre take the recession into account. Storylines in recession chick-lit books include dealing with a husband being investigated for embezzlement, scrimping on extravagant expenses after going through a divorce, and wearing less expensive clothes. Dang! Is nothing sacred? Keep reading »
