Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Pant, pant, pant. Brenda! Kelly! Drama! 90210! ZOMG! Keep reading »
Manufacturers believe women will do anything to be young and beautiful — like wear the most terrifyingly Halloween-esque mask with electrode stimulators to “rejuvenate” themselves. Luckily Ghoul Skool from EverythingIsTerrible.com sees the beauty in every woman and has a sense of humor to match this rare vintage video gem he edited from the original infomercial. So, when you’re feeling fugs, just watch this clip and save yourself the “three easy installments of $29.95!”
Britney Spears filmed two promotional spots for the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards, alongside host Russell Brand (from Forgetting Sarah Marshall). Though she’s nominated for an award (Best Female Video for “Piece Of Me”), the pop star, who is recovering from, uh, a rough year, won’t be making a “comeback” performing at this year’s award show on September 7th. Last year, Britney made a serious fool out of herself, sleepwalking through an atrocious performance of “Gimme More”, an event which signaled months’ worth of head-shaving, umbrella-wielding, psychotic breakdown-ing mayhem. But she seems so much better now, like the Britney we know and love! Last year it seemed like MTV set the star up to fail, hoping she would falter for ratings’ sake, but we think she should come back this year and knock some socks off. One more promo, after the jump… [MTV] Keep reading »
I give up. I totally have given into Blayne and have decided that he’s as lovable and funny as a puppy that’s just learning how to walk, but occasionally has accidents in your apartment that make you hate him for a couple minutes. Maybe it’s that we both have an addiction to being tan, though I gave up the booth years ago in favor laying out on my roof deck and slathering on bottled self-tanner. (May I recommend, by the way, that Blayne use a bronzer for African-American women in between tanning booth sessions? It’s my secret.) In any case, Blayne is just one of the many Project Runway contestants this season that seems to be competing to coin the show’s next catchphrase rather than to win the title of Top Designer — after all, “fierce hot tranny mess” is worn the hell out, and Blayne’s “holla atcha boy” is desperate to take its place. While we’re not convinced it’s bankable enough, it’s certainly better than Suede’s desire to make his own name — spoken constantly in third person — the next big utterance on reality TV. Amelia does not like Suede, she does not like Suede at all. Keep reading »
We just can’t get enough of James Franco! And surprisingly enough, we want the recent Daily Hotness stud for more than just his body — we actually love the James Dean look-a-like for his mind too. Sure his smarts and self-depreciating humor are like icing on a cake (umm, a delicious, super talented cake filled with good looks and and big screen street cred), but we’ve been loving the short films that Franco made with his brother on Funny or Die. In the above web-isode, produced by Pinapple Express‘ Judd Apatow, James teaches his brother Dave to cry on camera by drawing on a memory of his first pet, a cat who was put to sleep. And check out just how great his genes are in this response tape by his equally adorable and hilarious mom. Keep reading »
We hate to say it, but Paris Hilton just cracked us up. The heiress responded to John McCain’s recent Barack Obama attack ad — which compared the Democrat’s popularity to that of celebrities like Hilton and Britney Spears — with the help of the hilarious crew at Funny Or Die. We know she can’t take credit for the genius writing, but her delivery is pretty spot-on. Nicely done, bitch! Keep reading »
French band M83 sounds kind of ’80s, which is what summertime should sound like, in my opinion. I had Nathan take a listen to their synthy song “Kim and Jessie.” Too bad neither of us can roller-skate, otherwise, we’d totally replay this video over and over and over and over and over until we learned all of the skater girls’ moves. We’d obviously have to wear matching outfits, too.
Catherine: So, we are in the ’80s, undressing.
Nathan: Wait, is this porn? Keep reading »
All this talk about polyamory has convinced me it’s time to confess a rather intimate secret: I’m a fan of Swingtown on CBS. I know I can’t be the only fan out there — the message boards prove that (Yes, I’m actually reading the message boards. Look, my boyfriend’s been away on business. I’m lonely.), but it’s been difficult to find anyone in real life who admits to watching the show.
