This year sucked, especially on a personal level. For me, I had a job, had health insurance, had major surgery, lost the job, lost health insurance. This year took a lot of people. Everyone is broke because the economy broke. I'm not making any 'best of' lists or remembrance frankly because I'd just as soon forget this crappy year. However, I do want to offer this Stevie Wonder video of "I wish" because this song kicks ass. I hope you enjoy and that next year is far better than this one. Peace!

I Think I'm Horrified...

But I'm not sure....from ONTD:

It’s no secret that Keanu Reeves loves anime – a main influence on the “Matrix” series. It’s also common knowledge that the actor holds a place in his heart for sci-fi, as evidenced by films like “A Scanner Darkly,” “Johnny Mnemonic” and the currently-tops-in-theaters “The Day the Earth Stood Still.” It’s no surprise, then, that Reeves’ latest passion project revolves around his desire to make a live-action “Cowboy Bebop.”

“Oh yeah, cool,” he said when I asked him about the flick recently. “We’re trying to do that.”

As fans of the Japanese classic TV series know, “Bebop” follows a crew of bounty hunters traveling around the universe in the year 2071. Reeves hopes to play Spike Spiegel, one of these futuristic cowboys forced to pick up the slack after a population crash and hyperspace gateways have left law-enforcement unable to capture many of the galaxy’s most ruthless criminals.

“It’s got a Western quality, a Western film noir aspect to it,” Reeves said of why he’s such a big fan of Shinichiro Watanabe and Keiko Nobumoto’s groundbreaking series. “It’s got so much style to it, and that’s part of its appeal. That kind of Old West, bordertown, low-tech science fiction aspect.”

Take a look at this clip and you’ll get an idea of why Reeves is not only a perfect-looking fit for Spiegel, but also why he thinks the most important person on the set will be the one trying to translate the series’ unique look. “I think that would be a production designer’s dream,” Reeves said of the flick. “I think you just need a good production designer.”

The flick is currently being put together by Erwin Stoff, a producer who has spent the last two decades working almost exclusively on Reeves projects, and recently set the film up at 20th Century Fox. “We’ve got the rights, we’ve got a writer,” Keanu explained. “He’s putting together a scene outline.”

Reeves revealed that this outline for the flick is currently focusing on the origins of the fictional “Bebop” drug developed by the military, which provides its users with a brief surge of superhuman reflexes and awareness. “We’re taking the Red Eye [story], the beginning part of the series,” he explained, “and then we’ll deal with the end of the series. We’re trying to figure out [the time frame]. We’re looking at the story right now.”

Blind Item!

from CDAN:

I guess she is a C list actress now but with A list name recognition. Anyway, she had her "people" lie to news outlets about her recent trip to rehab. Instead, her "people" gave an exclusive about her rehab visit so she could get a cover story when she gets out of rehab in the hopes of jump starting her career.

who could that be? Hmmmm!

Santa Baby, Eartha Kitt

She does it best! Perfect for the holidays! Enjoy

Oh for Heathus Christs's Sake

From digital spy:

Late actor Heath Ledger's nomination for a Golden Globe Award has reportedly sparked a family feud.

The star's father Kim Ledger and ex-girlfriend Michelle Williams are warring over who should accept the honour on his behalf should he win, according to the New York Daily News.

Ledger, who died in January, has been nominated posthumously for his role as the Joker in The Dark Knight.

Kim, who accepted an Australian Film Insitute award on his son's behalf last week, wants to do the honours again at the Globes. However, bosses at Dark Knight studio Warner Bros would apparently prefer Williams to accept on behalf of her and Ledger's three-year-old daughter Matilda.

"Why would Michelle be involved? She had nothing to do with the movie," a family friend is quoted as saying. "They weren't even together when he passed away. Would you have your ex-wife accept your award?

"[Director] Chris Nolan or [star] Christian Bale would make more sense. Michelle makes no sense. It's like those rumours that she would go to the premiere of The Dark Knight. That was never in the realm of possibility."

Ledger and Williams split in September last year.

Miley Cyrus in Houston

It seems the Mighty Virus was in Houston, TX, last night, performing at a private party at a local law firm. It was all over the local radio stations this morning. No infections from the Virus have been reported. From Hair Balls in the Houston Press:

OMG!! Guess who’s going to be at Houston lawyer Mark Lanier’s Christmas party this year – Miley Cyrus! When we heard that, we were like, 2G2BT!! Lanier’s parties, which include thousands of guests and which take place on his 25-acre ranch northwest of Houston are always a spectacle, but previous years’ entertainers smacked more of state-fair-purgatory than stadium-sellouts.

*Well, it was last night and if any of my fab readers happened to be there and wants to dish, EMAIL ME!*

Won't Work, Brit....

This stunt will get you thrown into a hospital faster than you can get 'Womanizer' covered by Lily Allen (which sorta sux, imo). from ONTD:


Britney Spears has come up with an creative way of getting her father removed as conservator of her estate.

Fed up with being told what to do by Papa Jamie Spears, the pop star has reportedly gone on meal-per-day protest diet, eating only a small lunch daily in a bizarre effort to regain control of her affairs, Britain’s Daily Mail reports.

“Britney thinks that if she doesn’t eat much she will lose weight, then people will notice, then she thinks she will get to make her own decisions once again,” says a source, who adds, “She reckons she is better now so fails to see why her dad is still meddling in her life.”

“So she has decided that she will protest by not eating.”

“She has been told to eat but is refusing so is starting to look very skinny indeed. But then that is what she is hoping to achieve.”

*Might work better if she did this:*


I would have loved to have seen this.....

From ONTD:

Last night’s star studded charity auction event, benefiting the Los Angeles Children’s Hospital, was nothing short of a miracle on Sunset Blvd. “Make the Difference Network” sponsored the event with all proceeds going to the Children’s hospital.

Justin Timberlake and comedian Kevin James auctioned off items such as: A set of golf clubs autographed by Justin Timberlake, an adventure with a Navy Seal complete with skydiving and shooting guns, and a variety of limited edition sports memorabilia.

The sky was the limit as the auction wasn’t just open to attendees, but also to the world. By innovation of the internet, big screen TVs throughout the venue also allowed the popular auction site “eBay” and it’s millions of members to join in on the bidding.

Hollywood’s elite seemed to have no quam ponying up by responding generously to the call “open your wallets!” That is, up until the last auction item… A date with Jessica Biel.

NOT just ANY date with Jessica Biel, but a all inclusive Hollywood extravaganza complete with dinner, a stroll down the red carpet with Jessica for her upcoming movie premiere and a nightcap with Jessica after the movie’s premiere.

Cue the crickets!…

The bidding suddenly came to a screeching halt. It seemed there was nothing Justin and Kevin could do to motivate the crowd (and the world). Like an offspring of the Grinch and Scrooge, wallets closed quicker than a Venus Fly Trap on a ham sandwich.

Justin’s attempts were futile as he tried to over compensate for the dramatic change in tone of the auction. Justin panicked, “Come on people, this is the one time I’ll let you go out with my girlfriend.” Currently, the bid was at a mere fraction of Benjamins that had been raked in for a pair of skis. With the unknown eBay bidder upping the non-internet bidders 1-0, Justin tried to motivate the crowd by cracking little jokes and busting out some dance moves, but NO ONE in the crowd reacted to the bid.

If that wasn’t cold enough, Jessica was standing there frozen in embarrassment; and there was nothing Justin could do to save her. Justin then pleaded, “Come on don’t let a strange stalker on the internet take my girlfriend on a date!” Before Justin could save face by bidding HIMSELF, a hefty winning bid rang out from a ghost of Christmas past.

Jessica had been saved! But by who? In what seemed to be a paranormal occasion, it was revealed (to Justin’s chagrin) the winning bidder was in fact Jessica’s former high school “friend” who just “happened” to be in attendance.

Justin got his wish, or did he? He may have put the kibosh on the internet geeks and stalkers, but uh-oh, this bid winner was just the opposite: tall, dark, beyond handsome and on a mission. At this point folks, you could cut the tension with a KNIFE. Not only did Justin miss his chance to “do the right thing”, but SOMEHOW allowed his girlfriend to be sold as an indecent proposal.

Blindsided and somewhat befuddled, Justin tried to play the whole thing off as if it were a “Comedy”, but no one was laughing. This was NO Comedy, it was a Romance novel of epic proportion.

So...Nobody Cares

about Asslee and douchbag's baby with the fucked up they are going to pull the 'we weren't going to sell the pics anyway, what are you talking about?' thing. Douchebags. from

Are even ridiculously named celebrity offspring feeling the effects of the tanking economy? The New York Post claims Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz haven't exactly touched off a bidding war for the first snaps of 3-week-old son Bronx Mowgli.

"Pete and Ashlee have approached every single celebrity magazine with offers to sell their first photos, but nobody wants them," a source snipes to the paper. "Covers of them tend not to sell well." Wentz, however, adamantly denies the report, saying they've made a decision to keep Bronx under wraps for now.

"Truth is, like every celeb couple, we were offered mounds and mounds of money by mags from here to Guam to pimp out the baby," Wentz wrote Thursday on his Web site. "We just don't want to go down that road with him."

But the Fall Out Boy bassist makes it clear that he's not dissing the likes of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who have negotiated big money deals for their tot shots. "We are not placing judgment on those that do as they often use the money in a very charitable way," Pete explains.

"However, we have made the decision to not sell Bronx's baby pictures right now." The new dad says he and Ashlee "understand the curiosity, just not the viciousness that comes along with it when it becomes so insatiable. We know there will be a time when we'll share him with everyone because that insatiable curiosity becomes unsafe or simply because we're proud parents who want to show him off!"

Adds a proud Wentz, "Trust me, he's cute. He looks like his mommy."
