Notes From The Set Of “Bruno”

The “Bruno” producers must have had a long chat with J.K. Rowling. How else could they have possibly guarded the secret perils and dangers faced by a not-terribly-bright gay Austrian fashion commentator? Whatever wizardry was conjured for the keeping of secrets, it worked. No one seemed to know anything about the upcoming movie release of “Bruno,” until his memorable entrance and landing at the MTV Movie Awards. Since then we have been getting tidbits here, but, In the greatest surge of “Bruno” knowledge I have so far stumbled upon, here are edited versions of production notes released by Universal Pictures. Read about all the off camera shenanigans after the jump. Keep reading »

Do Your Next Internship At The Naked Farm

We’ve found a summer internship for you! Nude farming. Yes, planting seeds and hoeing veggies sans clothing.

Rising Sun Farm in Wisconsin hires spring/summer farm interns, where, their web site states, “We enjoy working clothes-free when the weather permits.” The farm produces everything from tomatoes to eggs and sells their wares at co-ops around Wisconsin. Keep reading »

What We Learn From Gov. Sanford’s Love E-mails

Following a long line of notable affairs—A-Rod and Madonna, Eliot Spitzer and an escort, and Jon and Kate’s various trysts—Gov. Mark Sanford recently revealed he’s been having an affair with a woman in Argentina.

Of course, this is after Gov. Sanford (previously only noteworthy for refusing Pres. Obama’s stimulus funds) disappeared and then reappeared, claiming to have gone hiking on the Appalachian Trail. Unfortunately for the family-friendly governor, his cover story happened to highlight Naked Hiking Day. Man, some people just can’t catch a break. Keep reading »

“Britain’s Next Top Model” Finalist Too Skinny?

Model Jade McSorely is one of three finalists on “Britain’s Next Top Model,” but some peeps are pissed because they think she’s very unhealthy looking and has anorexia. They think she shouldn’t be allowed on the show, but judge Lisa Snowdon says it’s totally okay. In the most insensitive and untrue statement ever, Snowdon said, “It’s not like the modeling industry has had this effect on her. She came into it with this eating disorder…” Lisa thinks the competition is helping the model’s self esteem, although she admits that Jade should be a “tiny bit” bigger. Tell us what you think! Should Jade be allowed to compete or is she setting a bad example? [Metro UK] Keep reading »

Just Some Hilarious Stuff We Found On Craigslist

What would we do without Craigslist, the place where we find our homes, sell our unwanted Ikea furniture, hook up, or find jobs? Not to mention the endless hours of entertainment the site provides. We scoured the CL for you to find some posts that are hilarious, crazy, and sometimes offensive. After the jump, a guy who wants to take out a girl even though she maced him, horny Carpathians, clog-lovers, and more. Keep reading »

Sexy Or Stupid?: Laurel Nakadate Photo Exhibit

Photographer and artist Laurel Nakadate is showcasing a pretty strange set of pictures in her new “Fever Dreams at the Crystal Motel” exhibition. Posing on trucks and in skeezy motel rooms in barely there bikinis and underwear was confusing enough, but then she decided to enlist middle aged men she found on Craigslist to smear their inky fingerprints all over the photos. She’s a Yale educated photographer, so I assume she must have had something, um, brilliant in mind when she launched this project, but I just can’t figure out what. Her work is all about the private moments, usually playing peeping Tom and snapping pics of shirtless middle aged men and topless rollerskating teens. I’m not sure why this series of random exorcism videos and bikini clad pictures comes together in exhibition form, but she definitely has people buzzing. What do you think, sexy or stupid?

Die-Hard “Twilight” Fans Go On A Tour In Forks, Washington

Forks, Washington, where the “Twilight” trilogy takes place, sounds like the most boring town in the world. The weather sucks and it’s way the eff up in the middle of nowhere. I’m not surprised only 3,000 people live there. But delusional die-hard “Twilight” fans don’t see it that way. Last weekend, $300 “Twilight” Forks tours were offered, flooding the town with squealing tweens. Twilighters gathered in the drab town to go to Forks High School, where they were given fake diplomas. There was also a “prom,” where bands like the Bella Cullen Project and Bella Rocks played. A tour of Forks was offered as well. OK, I’m starting to get a little freaked-out. These people do realize that “Twilight” isn’t real right, RIGHT? Yeah, and before you say the movie was filmed there, well, it wasn’t. Most of the flick was shot in Oregon. [People] Keep reading »

Just Say No: A 24-Hour Wedding Channel

Just when you thought there couldn’t be anymore hoopla involved with getting married, the wedding industry strikes again! The WE channel, in conjunction with Cablevision, is launching a 24-7 channel on all things bridal. Because we don’t get enough of the terrifically terrible ladies on “Bridezillas” and are just dying for more shows like “Amazing Wedding Cakes” and “My Fair Wedding.” I sometimes sit and watch some of the wack job bridezillas chicks and think, Really, why are you marrying a man you are being this horrible to now? And, That’s your mother, she’s paying for all of this, let her wear what she wants! One bride-to-be (pictured, above) got out a scale and made all of her bridesmaids step on it, on national TV, to make sure they all weighed more than her. Sometimes I scream on the inside at the grooms—Get out while you can! Soon, there will wedded (non)bliss 24 hours a day. Great. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Sarah Palin Loves To Run

The August 2009 cover of Runner’s World features none other than VP Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. In the cover article “I’m A Runner,” the 45 year old Governor of Alaska talked with the magazine about her life long passion for running. As opposed to the Katie Couric interview in which she couldn’t drop the name of a newspaper she read, this interview reads quite smoothly and amazingly the woman even managed to link God’s greatness to running. My only problem: the photos portray Palin all done up and ready to run right on into a House of Representatives meeting, not the Alaska land front. But at least she defended herself saying, “When I run, I’m totally incognito because I’m not wearing the trough full of makeup. I can go running through a mob of tourists and they don’t recognize me.” After the jump, more interview tidbits fromwhat shoes Palin likes to sport to why she named her kid Track. Keep reading »

Four out of the five “Real Housewives of New Jersey” were on “Live With Regis & Kelly” this morning (though Jerry O’Connell was filling in for Regis) and the ladies talked a lot about Danielle, who was noticeably absent. One thing is for sure — Danielle, Caroline wants to kick your ass. Clip above! Keep reading »
