If you pick up a photo of me as a kid, there is an 85 percent chance that I will be wearing a red curly wig in it. And if you watch any home videos, I will no doubt be singing either “The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow” or “It’s A Hard Knock Life.” That’s because I was beyond obsessed with the 1982 movie, “Annie,” in which a precocious orphan is adopted by the mega-rich Daddy Warbucks. (Side note: I recently read that Aileen Quinn, who played Annie, is now a theater professor. You go, girl. No word on whether Sandy the dog is still barking.)
So, I’m a tad bit concerned that Will Smith is looking to remake the classic movie. Keep reading »
So long as love rides shotgun in your life, nothing can ever truly be that bad. It is the singular prize that trumps all others, the reward that sweetens every success. Truly, it is the hot fudge on the ice cream scoops of personal achievement. Now, excuse me while I puke a little in my mouth. Actually, I’m going to shotgun a cheap beer and play some Grand Theft Auto 4 to make amends for such an unforgivably cheeseball observation. More on love and rewards and, ZOMG, trust, after the jump…. Plus, a fable!

February fashion mags are already hitting newsstands and even though it’s still the dead of winter, editors are already crowing about the hot trends for Spring 2011. Among them: wedge heels with rope embellishments. Ugh, but how to wear the trend now? These teal round-toe pumps with their subtle jute platform sole are the perfect nod to upcoming warm temperatures, while still being appropriate for the ongoing frigid winter. These babies — a total steal at less than $40 — would look great with tights now and bare legs come May.
I smell a publicity stunt: MTV is worried future episodes of “Skins,” its new show about the hormone-laden escapades of a posse of Baltimore teens, will run afoul of child pornography laws because of too much sexxxy sex. “Skins,” which debuted on Monday, is an Americanized version of a popular show in Britain; however, the UK — and Europe in general — have much more liberal attitudes towards sexuality, especially in youngsters. Most of the actors or non-actors on MTV’s scripted programs or reality shows are adults over the age of 18. However, some of the actors on “Skins” are as young as 15 and acting out sexual acts onscreen could, by some interpretations of the laws, be seen as trying to arouse viewers. (Granted, I’m not an expert on the laws regarding this subject.) Keep reading »
File this under really bad things that can happen when you drink too much. Picture this: You are fast asleep one night, minding your own business, catching up on your REM, when suddenly you are awoken by a strange woman who somehow managed to get into your apartment, take all of her clothes off, slip into bed next to you, and pass out. This actually happened to one unfortunate Canadian man. Around 3 a.m. this past weekend, a woman, who happened to live in his building on a different floor, managed to open his door using her key. She was so intoxicated that she didn’t notice she was in the wrong apartment crashing in the wrong bed. The terrified dude called the cops and she was escorted upstairs to her actual bed to sleep it off. I don’t even want to know what her hangover was like. [UPI] Keep reading »
