It’s so awesome when people find creative ways to pay tribute to their favorite films. This past weekend I came across three “trailers” (respectively) to 2010′s Inception, this summer’s Prometheus, and 1993′s Mrs. Doubtfire. All of them blew me away in either composition or general ridiculousness. And I think we can all agree that whenever Lego is involved, something cool is bound to go down. Peep the LegoLand version of Inception, Mrs. Doubtfire as a thriller (which it technically should have been), and the lovable, mechanical reality TV “man” of Prometheus inside.
nd on the third day of the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival D’Angelo rose again. The artist has been touring throughout Europe this year but surprised the neo-soul outta everyone at Bonnaroo when he joined The Roots during their set and killed (so I heard). After Questlove introduced him to the crowd (“I’ve been waiting 12 years to say this – ladies and gentlemen, D’Angelo!”), the artist formerly known as my sweet, sweet fantasy (baby) covered everybody from Led Zeppelin to James Brown. How did it feel to the crowd? Apparently, pretty damn good.

Joey Lawrence first found fame as a child actor (on TV shows like Blossom), then he attempted to enhance his fame as a pop star (remember THIS music video?) and now, once again, enjoys a modicum of fame as an actor again (he stars along Melissa Joan Hart on a series called Melissa & Joey — which David, inexplicably, loves to watch) … but this weekend, Joey expanded his professional portfolio to include a new occupation as a male exotic dancer. Lawrence performed his first gig as a member of the Chippendales male dance troupe. Photo evidence of his new job can be seen below. More »
The famous red-soled shoe, the symbol of many a celeb foot fetish (and normal person’s dream), is at it again defending it’s signature feature- the red soles. You may remember a few months ago that Christian Louboutin was in court with Yves Saint Laurent about the same issue. Now it is at odds with high street chain store giant, Zara. Today we learn that a French court has ruled in favor of Zara in a lawsuit filed by Louboutin. The high-end shoe company has been trying to stop Zara from selling a particular pair of $70 red-soled heel. Read on for more of the details about the red hot issue… More »
The MTV cameras are rolling again in Seaside Heights, NJ and you know what that means … more shenanigans from the cast of Jersey Shore. In the past couple of weeks, the JS gang have already been involved in a couple of altercations and one of the cast members has already been arrested. Dina Deena Nicole Cortese got her drunken ass busted by the cops over the weekend due to her allegedly disorderly conduct. Basically, the girl was lookin’ an inebriated fool out in public and the cops decided to arrest her. Naturally, the MTV cameras where there front and center to film the entire event. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the state of reality TV entertainment here in the US these days. More »

After my fairly full day yesterday morning and afternoon, I was pretty wiped for the rest of the day. My late afternoon nap ran a bit longer than I planned and, well, I decided to call it a day. The coming week will be a fairly quiet one for me so I’ll have time to take care of some menial chores around the house. Fun, right? Still, now that we’re well into June, I’d like to get things sorted so I can turn my focus on enjoying the Summer. More »
