Trump Entertainment To Miss Interest Payment →
I think Donald better start worrying about Guido coming by and breaking his kneecaps for trying to dodge this month’s payment. And Guido, even he says he’s good for it don’t trust him, the man has already declared bankruptcy once, he’ll do it again.
Another Thought On Milk
It’s nice to see that someone managed to actually get free of the Disney ghetto known as High School Musical and actually appear in a REAL film. Sorry Zac Efron but Hairspray doesn’t count as a leap forward into real roles (same goes for you Ashley Tisdale album of bad pop songs).

Actor robots take Japanese stage →
Alright this is a good first step, but I can’t wait to see an all robot production of Cats. Just imagine hearing “Memory” being sung in a creepy robotic voice. It’ll probably run on Broadway for another 15 years.
Things I Will Not Be Attending
The Jonas Brothers at the Hollywood Palladium, Tonight Reason: I’m 27 and I don’t love irony enough to actually attend. Plus I fear the screams of rabid 11 year old fans. Bone Thugs-N-Harmony at Club Nokia, Tonight Reason: It’s sold out. I can’t believe Bone Thugs can still draw a sold out crowd. Who is still listening to “Tha Crossroads” on repeat. Also...

Take that Amsterdam. You think you’re so cool with your decriminalized pot. Well Switzerland has doctor approved heroin. How are you gonna top that Amsterdam? Maybe have your mayor shoot up, while chatting up a prostitute in the red light district. Man if that happens, the war on which European country can be more lax on drugs will be pretty damn exciting.

Today's Scientific Overkill
The BBC reports that French Physicists are using a particle accelerator to help determine the authenticity of bottles of wine. “The analysis works by measuring the X-ray radiation emitted when the glass bottle is placed in the path of an ion particle beam.” Look French people, I know you love your wine, but if you open a Black Hole and destroy the universe just to determine if a wine...
Giants’ Burress Shoots Himself Accidentally in the... →
Plaxico Burress and his thigh were fighting over who got the last Sony 40 inch Plasma screen at the local Best Buy on Black Friday. The thigh grabbed a knife and charged at Burress but Burress dodged the attack like it was a defender coming to tackle him, grabbed his gun and shot himself in the knee. Burress is said to be at home resting and enjoying last weeks Heroes in HD.
A Couple Thoughts On Milk
The opera Harvey Milk attends is nowhere near as cool as the Opera James Bond attends in Quantum of Solace. So if you’re a fan of operas within movies don’t see Milk, you’ll be disappointed. I think more scenes featuring Josh Brolin eating junk food (specifically Twinkies) could have helped the narrative.
entourage season opener...
basilone: after watching the entourage season 4 finale (in which they managed to maintain conflict for 2 and a half minutes: a new record for the show), i was inspired to take a stab at writing a spec for the season 5 opener. It’s only an outline, but this is what i’ve got so far: -while starting to shoot martin scorsese’s modernization of the great gatsby, vince mysteriously starts to feel...
Black Friday, Bloody Black Friday
More sad news in what’s turning into the saddest Black Friday ever. 2 people are dead after shots were fired at a Toys R Us in Palm Desert. http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2008/11/shots-were-fire.html I think the election of Obama made me think that America was changing and evolving into something better. I guess today just shows that Americans are still greedy and violent people....
Things I Will Not Be Attending
Bel Biv Devoe are playing the House of Blues on Sunset tonight. I guess my dream of hearing “Poison” performed live will have to wait. I suppose it’s for the best because I’d probably be depressed to find out that Bel and Devoe’s flattops have been sucked into an early 90s vacuum. I think Biv is trying to do his best Uncle Sam impression, Devoe is thinking about...
Did A Missing Testicle Cause the Holocaust?
For this Black Friday please enjoy Slate’s possibly too in depth look at the rumor of Hitler being a one balled wonder. I’m going to start a rumor that he called his silly little moustache his lost ball. Hitler, so evil, so allegedly short on a full sack of balls. http://www.slate.com/id/2205359 Also this rumor makes me look at Chaplin’s famous Globe Dance from the Great...
Wise Words From The Krugman
“Anything that has to be rescued during a financial crisis, because it plays an essential role in the financial mechanism, should be regulated when there isn’t a crisis so that it doesn’t take excessive risks.” Now hopefully the US Government will do this. Please Obama listen to Paulie. http://www.nybooks.com/articles/22151
Worker dies in Black Friday store rush - 11/28/08... →
I made that last post before I heard this news. The fact that this happened is sickening and disgusting. No “deal” is worth knocking a person over and injuring them. Americans should take a look at itself and see if Black Friday is worth this. Anyone that thinks it is I dub a shit head.

This Thanksgiving I think we can all be thankful for the fact that America united and decided that Zima sucked. Zo long Zima. We’ll always remember that stupid guy with the hat.

RIP: The Major Label Album It’s been coming for years but i think now that a major label just made more money from digital as opposed to physical releases the final nail has been put in the coffin for the Major Label Album.

I’m embarrassed that for the past 8 years I’ve lived in an America that had a President who refused to say this. I’m proud of the fact that we will have a President who will admit his mistakes and recognize that both himself and America can be imperfect sometimes (and in America’s case, often).

NASA's Answer To Water Shortage Is In Its Pants →
Astronauts are one step closer to drinking their own urine. For some reason this makes them say “Yippee.” I guess considering everything that keeps getting fucked up on the space station it’s the little, urine related victories that matter. I wonder if the Astronauts are bummed or happy that they are going to need a year to wait for tests on the pee water before they can drink...
Krugman Has A Blog!!
Sure it’s been around for a while but still…Oh happy day!!! I bet he writes about the same sort of things Brody Jenner blogs about. You know what it was like to date LC on the Hills and how Heidi is such a bitch. My days of blog reading have just become a little bit more focused on the economy. http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/

I’m guessing Daryl has the title Talent Booker as well as star. The other thing I noticed, is no one bothered to tell Daryl that Oates was there. Apparently Live From Daryl’s House is not run as...
