A Look At What’s Going On In The News

Glitter Could Face Seven Years in Jail

Gary Glitter, singer of such famous songs as "Rock and Roll (Part 2)" and “Do You Wanna Touch Me? (Oh Yeah!),” faces up to seven years in a Vietnamese prison if found guilty of child molestation charges this week in southern Vietnam.

Glitter's downfall was triggered in 1997 when he brought his computer to be repaired and thousands of hard-core pornographic images of children were found.

He was convicted in Britain in 1999 of possessing child pornography and served half of a four-month jail term. He later went to Cambodia and in 2002 was expelled from that country, though Cambodian officials did not specify any crime or file charges.

This guy was kicked out of CAMBODIA. Do you have any idea what it takes to get kicked out of Cambodia? I don’t either. And frankly, I don’t want to know.

Sticks and stones may break your bones, but irony can be deadly!

Bush Arrives in India Seeking Nuclear Deal

Apparently we want to share our nuclear technology with India even though they won’t sign the agreement that says “We won’t make apocalyptic bombs.” I don’t know, I don’t really understand the technicalities. I just really wanted to post that picture.

"Obviously someone wants to hurt me and doesn't want me to be successful in my solo career.”

Obviously Scott Stapp still has no idea that he sucks.

Lionel Tate, who beat and stomped a little girl to death when he was 12, pleaded guilty Wednesday to robbing a pizza delivery man last spring and could be sent back to prison for up to 30 years.

All I have to say is: Worst. Appositive. Ever.

Courtney Cox Returns to TV in 'Dirt'

First of all, is there a single person out there who doesn’t believe that David Arquette has spent every penny these two have and is now forcing Courtney back to work so they can pay the mortgage?

Second – why does Courtney Cox always look stoned? Is it the plastic surgery? Or is that just the “What happened, I used to have such a good life” face? Either way, it’s definitely the look of a woman who wakes up every morning to a tall glass of vodka and orange juice while watching “Friends” on DVD.

It would have to be one hell of a fancy screw cap.

'MySpace' Parody Launches Film Career

Amateur filmmaker David Lehre first screened his short film "MySpace: The Movie" about a month ago at his 21st birthday party.

What would be the best joke here?

“Not to be confused with . . .”

a. “ . . . Friendster: An Aftershool Special”
b. “ . . . Cold Case Files: Craigslist”
c. “ . . . A Hallmark Special Event: Suicide Girls”

You’re right, they all suck. But so does the movie.

You can't force cats to do anything...

I’m not one to brag, but with the right amount of tuna – yes, you can.

(And yes, I just wanted to post the picture.)


Wow, thanks for the update. I feel so informed on current events now. Why read the paper when I can just come here?

Dan, you look dashing in your yellow pants and red cummerbund.

ok. I looked it up and I still don't get it.

what appositive?

By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4:48 PM  

An apposition is a construction in which a noun or noun phrase is placed with another as an explanatory equivalent. For example, in "My friend Leopold lives in Haiti," we're looking at "Leopold" and "my friend."

So for this guy, we have "Lionel Tate" and "who beat and stomped a little girl to death when he was 12."

It's a terrible way to be described. Get it?

All the Cambodians would say was, "We'd never seen anyone even TRY that with the monkeys."

My roommate drew Lionel Tate's judge for his DUI hearing. So I'm guessing this does not bode well for him?

I'm a fan of the screw tops. Discovered them about 3 years ago, and have noticed that, not only is it easier to open the bottle, but the wine tastes pretty damned good. And I drink red.

The only thing I avoid when it comes to wine, really, is the boxed stuff. Oh, and Boone's. Oh...and most everything white. Although the boyfriend did bring home a riesling the other night that was pleasant (and got me fucked up right quick, too!).

Embrace the future, BI. Cork and screw caps can coexist harmoniously, believe me...
