“American Idol” Plays Nice, Turns On The Waterworks


Last night’s “American Idol” sure was a tearjerker, huh? While the first episode of “Idol” on Wednesday had a bunch of standout bad auditions, last night’s most memorable performances were all good. First up, my new spirit animal, Brett Loewenstern, a 16-year-old ginger hippie freak from Florida, who I loved instantly, even before hearing him sing, because of his look and his story. Maura over at Popdust writes in her recap of the show, “Brett’s whole audition arc, which felt like a prologue to an It Gets Better video, made it obvious that the show is taking an anti-bullying cue from its Fox sibling ‘Glee.’ … That ‘Be Nice’ would be more of an unofficial show motto in the absence of Simon Cowell was a given, but the idea that ‘American Idol,’ which has trafficked in raking in ratings for ridiculing the oddballs during its first nine seasons, would embrace the outcasts is definitely a sea change for the show’s overall tone.” Keep reading »

Kelly Preston Gave Birth Using The Xenu Method

“Silent birth is basically just no words as much as possible. If you need to moan, if you need to cry out … of course that’s normal … But, it’s just bringing them in, in as peaceful and gentle a way as possible … L. Ron Hubbard found that the single source of aberration, of psychosomatic illnesses, stress, fears, worry, things like that, have to do with the reactive mind, and in that part of the mind is different words and commands that can come back to affect you later in your life. I’m blessed with, my kids have always been amazing, very calm, very peaceful, happy, and I absolutely know that it’s very much because of that.”

Kelly Preston on the benefits of silent birth, as dictated by the Church of Scientology. Xenu must be very proud. But my reactive mind has a lot of issues with this birthing practice. I wonder if the Church blames her son Jett’s health issues on her making too much noise during his birth. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Shocker: “American Idol” Season 10 Doesn’t Suck!

I’ll be honest. I did not have high hopes for the new season of “American Idol.” I was sure that the show without Simon Cowell would be like an Italian dinner without red wine. But as I am learning from my drinking sabbatical (now nine days in!), it is possible to enjoy a bowl of pasta without a bottle of Chianti, just as it’s possible to still be entertained by hundreds of amateur singers without a British guy in a tight T-shirt there to snark at them.

What “Blue Valentine” Took From “The Notebook”


Props to New York‘s Vulture blog for pointing out that two distinctly different Ryan Gosling films, “The Notebook” and “Blue Valentine,” have one distinct similarity — they each feature a scene in which Gosling’s character kinda, sorta threatens to kill himself if the object of his affection doesn’t give him what he wants. In “The Notebook,” “Noah” teases that he’ll throw himself off a Ferris Wheel if Rachel McAdams’ character “Allie” doesn’t agree to go on a date with him (above). In “Blue Valentine,” “Dean” scales a fence on the Manhattan Bridge and threatens to go even further if Michelle Williams’ character “Cindy” doesn’t confess a secret she’s been hiding (watch that clip after the jump).
