In America, July 1st just means four days until Fourth of July fireworks. But to our neighbors to the north, it’s Canada Day! Admittedly, we know very little about Canada, other than Michael Moore has a hard-on for their nationalized health care and Montreal’s strip clubs are bangin’. But we’re all over Canada’s cultural exports, particularly the ones who look like they’d keep us warm on those chilly Canadian nights. Click through to see Canucks we’d like to … oh, come now, you know what we were going to rhyme that one with. (Just to warn you, we left out Bieber.)
Are you looking to pick up some extra cash this summer? Apparently there are big bucks to be made in the sand castle industry. According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, top “sand castle consultants” can rake in up to five figures during sand-sculpture season, which is beginning to resemble the pro-golf or tennis circuits.

I remember being thoroughly fascinated by MTV’s documentary special on Britney Spears
, “Britney: For The Record.” And now the network had apparently done the same for Beyoncé
. Here is the opening segment of “Year of 4,” which premiered last night. It begins with black and white footage of Beyoncé on the beach. “I’m always happy when I’m surrounded by water. I think I was a mermaid,” she said. “The ocean makes me feel really small and it makes me put my whole life into perspective… it humbles you and makes you feel almost like you’ve been baptized. I feel born again when I get out of the ocean.” Did anyone watch the whole thing last night? Here’s hoping they replay it over the weekend. Luckily, MTV is known for their recycling. [Idolator

Poor Tara Reid. Every time you think the girl is getting her act together, there’s another cringeworthy photo or bizarre news item about her. The latest embarrassment in a long string of embarrassments occurred this weekend in Saint-Tropez, where she has been on permanent vacation. TMZ video footage showed what appeared to be a wasted Tara Reid and equally drunk friend stumbling into a parked motorbike, knocking it over and collapsing into a half-naked heap on the ground. The two eventually made their way to their feet again, but not without much swaying and wobbling.
Tara Reid responded to the incident with a series of tweets, saying, “Tmz are liars and they always against me they pushed us down that’s why we fell why don’t u see how we fell? Its a set up! … Look how it is edited they only should u after they knocked us down in front of our own boat its so wrong and I will defend us this time 100%”
You can watch the video and judge for yourself. But based on Tara’s track record, it’s hard to believe her. These kinds of mishaps seem to happen to her constantly. Click onward for a review of Tara Reid’s most cringeworthy indiscretions.
Race-related anti-abortion billboards strike again! At least 25 billboards reading “Black is beautiful” with a picture of a black baby and the URL for an anti-abortion web sitehave been posted this month in Oakland, California. The billboards are paid for by the Radiance Foundation, an anti-abortion group which is also responsible for slavery-related billboards in Atlanta which read “The 13th amendment freed us, abortion enslaves us,” and billboards in Houston which read “Black & Unwanted.” The goal of the Radiance Foundation, as you may have guessed by now, is to suggest that legal abortion is a plot to exterminate black people. This is hogwash for a variety of reasons I’ve explained in detail in past posts like this one. Keep reading »
