Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Carrie Fisher, best known as Princess Leia from the “Star Wars” franchise, was on “The Today Show” this morning promoting her new memoir “Wishful Drinking.” She had some hilarious little anecdotes about her life growing up in Hollywood, including being told, repeatedly, by Cary Grant not to do acid. I personally loved the moment when she corrected Matt Lauer, who called her mom and dad, Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, the “Brad and Angelina of their day.” She said, “Actually, they were the Brad and Jennifer Aniston. Liz Taylor was the Angelina,” referring, of course, to Taylor breaking up their marriage. I also loved that she sat in her chair all folded up, like a Shaman. Clip above! Keep reading »
Happy Day Without A Gay! Jon Stewart made his feeling about gay rights and gay marriage known on last night’s “Daily Show,” where he tore guest Mike Huckabee a new one. Nicely, of course. Clip above! Keep reading »
So, this morning Simcha professed her hatred for holiday music, sadly, one of my greatest guilty pleasures. But I think I’ve found just the thing to open her eyes to the joys of festive tunes! For some unknown reason, adorably nerdy-hot actor John Krasinski (Jim on “The Office”) stopped by an Aimee Mann show and did a duet with her on “Winter Wonderland.” And, yes, it’s true. Nerdy-hot guys get even nerdier and hotter when they sing…Christmas carols. [Via BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
I can’t stand Christmas music. After a weeks worth of shopping I’m already up to my eyeballs in “Silver Bells” and “Feliz Navidad.” Don’t get me wrong, I love buying gifts, but if I hear one more light jazz rendition of “Jingle Bell Rock,” I’m going to lose it. There are plenty of non-Christmas celebrating shoppers out there, slowly being tortured by seasonal elevator music — the Heebs, Muslims, Buddhists, Jehovah Witnesses, Atheists, Taoists….well, you get the point. Still, since it’s our job, if we have the means, to help boost the economy, I would just like to suggest some tracks to the retailers out there, unless they want me to do my holiday shopping at home — where I can blast my own awesome non-denominational music. Now, let’s get in the mood to spend with these hot holiday-free jams that revel in consumerism…
On “Saturday Night Live” this weekend, Andy Samberg dropped another hot hit, J**z In My Pants, with his boy band “The Lonely Island.” The group is composed of three comedic cuties: “SNL” writer Jorma Taccone, cast member/comedian Andy Samberg, and a music video director with an even more messed up Hebrew name that me, Akiva Schaffer. Together they’ve made the movie “Hot Rod”, a “Hills”/”OC” spoof called “The ‘Bu,” a bunch of film shorts, music vids, and “Awesometown”, one of three rejected TV pilots. (How could anyone tell these babes no?!) However, the good news is, they are set to release a record entitled Incredibad the second week of February! But we just can’t make you wait that long for all their three-pronged sexy. So check these boys out in an early music video for their track “Ka-Blamo!“ above. And if you want to see Jorma dancing around without clothes then this oughta put a smile on your face. [The Lonely Island] Keep reading »
Last night’s digital short on “Saturday Night Live” was a music video for the song “J**z In My Pants” from Andy Samberg and his “band” The Lonely Island. Molly Sims, Jamie Lynn Sigler and, honorary “SNL” cast member, Justin Timberlake, make appearances too, and it is gross/hilarious/highly groovy. Keep reading »
Britney Spears’ circus-themed video for, uh, “Circus,” the second single of her latest album, is now online. I think it’s hot, but what’s up with the big ol’ product placement shout out to Bulgari at the beginning? Did Brit get to keep those baubles when the video shoot was done?
