Lindsay Lohan’s Trainwreck Life Becomes An Off-Broadway Show

Plus, She Reportedly Decides to Plead 'No Contest' to Theft

Sometimes life is stranger than fiction and that is SO very much the case when it comes to the trainwreck of a life lived by Lindsay Lohan. Director Ben Rimalower and performer D’Arcy Drollinger have created an off-Broadway show called Project: Lohan that takes the found text of Lindsay‘s actual words and turns it into entertainment. Project: Lohan debuted in NYC last night and promises to give a fair but funny portrayal of the young girl’s very messy life. In real life, TMZ is reporting that Lindsay has decided to plead no contest to the misdemeanor charges of theft brought against her. If she does plead no contest, that would mean she would need to serve that 120 day jail sentence that she got slapped with a couple of weeks ago. Might Lindsay be ready to take responsibility for her actions? Is that even possible? More »

Kylie Minogue Kicks Off Her ‘Aphrodite Live 2011′ Tour Here In The US

Boston, MA Gets the Party Started

After touring Europe and Japan, Kylie Minogue has brought her world tour to the US last night and officially kicked off Aphrodite Live 2011 in Boston, MA. Because her US tour isn’t as extravagant as her European tour (ie. no Splash Zone), I was worried what the “stripped down” version of the show would look like. As I understand it, very little changes have been made to the show now that it is here in the US. All of the numbers have been kept in tact, as well as the costuming and staging from the Les Folies 2011 Tour. Kylie has brought her FABULOUS show to our shores and she will be trekking her way across the country performing along the way! Check out some photos from the show and read a new interview with Kylie below. More »

Second Nite Stand With Prince

The TV Guide

Last night was my second of three Prince concerts this week and I am happy to report that last night’s show was just as amazing as Thursday night’s show. As I say all the time, no two Prince concerts are ever the same. There something different in the Prince was feeling last night that gave the show an entirely different feel. I attended last night’s show at The Forum in Inglewood, CA with my good friends Angie and Ollie. With my O(+> tambourine in hand, we made our way to one of the funkiest concerts I’ve ever seen.

Superman Renounces His US Citizenship In Action Comics #900

He Will Now Stand for Truth, Justice and the American Way and That's All!

Ever since his creation, the alien super man named Kal-El who crash landed on Earth in the comic book series Superman has always been a US citizen. His adoptive parents in Kansas instilled him a respect for “truth, justice and the American way”. But in Action Comics #900, Superman will denounce his US citizenship after butting heads with the US government. Altho all of this takes place in the fictional world of comic books, I think it’s still a story worth blogging about … Superman will no longer be American. Whoa! More »

‘Two And A Half Men’ Will Be Rebooted WITHOUT Charlie Sheen

OR, The Show will be Canceled Altogether

Time is running out for the TV show Two and a Half Men because CBS has to decide very soon which shows will be greenlighted for the Fall TV season. Because Charlie Sheen melted down and went absolutely nuts, there is no way he will be allowed to return to the show. That said, Two and a Half Men showrunner Chuck Lorre (who Sheen has been feuding with for the past few months) has come up with a plan to reboot the show without Charlie Sheen. But, according to TMZ, the show has a 50/50 chance of not getting picked up at all. The end of the show may be very close. More »

President Obama Releases His Long Form Birth Certificate

Born In The USA

For years, well before he was elected president of the United States of America, critics (ie. conservative politicians in this country) have been making the ridiculousness claim that President Barack Obama should NOT be president of this country because they do not believe that he was born in the US and is, therefore, ineligible to be president (our federal constitution stipulates that a person MUST be naturally born on US soil to become president). Despite the fact that President Obama issued a copy of the short form version of his birth certificate during the 2008 Presidential election, his detractors STILL have not been convinced that he is US natural born. Today, in an effort to finally END the ridiculous controversy, the White House has issued the long form version of President Obama‘s birth certificate putting to rest AT last the controversy. More »

FIRST LOOK: Lindsay Lohan Does ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno’ [UPDATE]

"I’ve made a lot of mistakes and I recognize that."

Lindsay Lohan, who went to court last Friday to begin proceedings leading up to the start of her theft case and got slapped with a 120-day jail sentence for probation violation (which she is now appealing), made a surprise visit to The Tonight Show with Jay Leno here in LA last night to give not only her first interview since being sentenced to jail time (again) but her first TV interview in ages! Because she recently nabbed a role in the Gotti biopic, she had something other than jail to talk about so the interview (which was taped yesterday and will air tonight) was kind of a win/win for both Lindsay and Leno.

Movie Review: ‘Water For Elephants’

The TV Guide

For months I’ve been talking about the big screen adaptation of the novel Water for Elephants and this weekend the film finally opened in theaters. To be honest, despite the amount of time I spent blogging about the production and promotion of the film, I wasn’t really convinced that I would love the final product. Last night, David and I decided to see the film because it was the best option available … and while I was kinda, sorta interested in seeing it, I wasn’t all that excited. I am happy to report that I not only enjoyed the film, I actually really loved it! More »

The Cast Of ‘Glee’ Invade NYC

Nationals

The cast of Glee have packed up their bags and have made their way from their homebase here in SoCal to New York City where the show will be filming all week one of if not the last episode of the season. As you may know, you faithful Gleeks, the New Directions Glee Club tends to yearly make the attempt to compete at nationals … and they never quite make it. Considering that this year, the cast is actually filming in NYC (at Lincoln Center, no less) I’m guessing our beloved Glee club will fare better in the competition.

A Most Eggs-cellent Day

The TV Guide

Yesterday was David’s and my first full day here at his parent’s house in Connecticut and I’m not gonna lie … it was a very quiet day. Because we’re out in the country (ie. woods that get so dark at night that you half expect to see murderers, vampires or flesh-eating zombies roaming around in the back yard), there really ain’t much to do. For the most part, I spent a nice relaxing day reading and hanging out with David’s family. BUT, by nightfall (presumably to distract from the fact that the darkness outside looks like a horror film waiting to happen), it was time to dye Easter Eggs! More »

Reuters Reports That The iPhone 5 Will Be Released In September

Rumor Mill

It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard a seriously juicy iPhone rumor so it was very nice of the Reuters news agency to report the latest rumor this week that the anticipated iPhone 5 will be released this September. Altho iPhones are usually released in June, there has been much speculation that the next generation iPhone will be pushed back from its usual June release date. While Apple has not confirmed this report (because they never confirm anything they themselves do not report), this rumored release report from Reuters could have some semblance of truth to it.

Playing ‘Catch’ Up With Friends

The TV Guide

As I mentioned earlier, David and I went to the Neil Simon Theater on Broadway to see the new musical production of Catch Me If You Can (read my review HERE) and then afterward, met up with our good friends Marissa and Isaac for a late dinner at the Landmarc inside the Time Warner Center in Columbus Circle. Because our time here in NYC this week is limited and jam-packed with stuff to do, our hang out session with Marissa and Isaac last night was our only chance to see one another … so we really made the most of our time together.

Theater Review: ‘Catch Me If You Can’

The TV Guide

Last night David and I made our way to the Neil Simon Theater on Broadway to see the new musical Catch Me If You Can. Altho I had not seen the film, I was very anxious to see this show because one of my favorite Broadway actresses, Kerry Butler, stars in the show. I was only marginally familiar with the story so I hoped that seeing it cold would be entertaining. For the most part, I thought the show was OK … but, unfortch, it wasn’t nearly as exciting or upbeat as I was hoping. More »

Lady Gaga Calls Fan Criticism ‘Retarded’, Goes On An Expletive-laden Rant In ‘NME’ Magazine

“I feel I have been probed endlessly about who the fuck I am”

Lady Gaga is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of NME magazine and in her coverstory interview, she seems to have an awfully big chip on her shoulder. Almost every other word out of her mouth is an expletive and she goes so far as to call criticism of her music “retarded” (which I find outrageously offensive). This interview with NME seems to be an attempt by Gaga to release all of her aggression, which is completely understandable, but the way in which she does it — unsurprisingly — is IMHO offensive and childish. Read on for some of the more choice quotes from Gaga‘s interview. More »

Being Lazy

The TV Guide

So … after our very LONG travel day Saturday and the lack of sleep we got upon our very late arrival here in NYC, yesterday turned out to be the laziest of days … and I mean la-zy. After work, I read for a bit … and then passed out. David and his sisters got out to enjoy the weather but, yeah, I was asleep for most of my Sunday. I did rally around dinner time so that we could all hang out for a bit on our first day in the city. David’s sister Eden suggested we go out for ice cream … and cupcakes … and doughnuts. Needless to say, that got me up and out of the house. More »

Overall, I loved the book … and I love where the story is headed. It’s been a long time since I voraciously needed to read a book as entertaining as Catching Fire. More »
