Sorry dude, in a battle of Penns, Gillette over Badgley any day of the week.

If Kenickie were around today, you’d think Rizzo would kick his ass??
It was too good to be true. At least with Jeff Conanway, that is. Being the Last Man Suffering Through Detox has taken a dramatic turn. A yoga session with his private instructor saw Jeff breaking down and wanting out. When told by Dr. Drew it would be in his best interest to forget another back surgery and focus on physical therapy and recovery; Jeff decided he was being held against his will and did what any other celebrity would do on a reality show or to wind up on TMZ..call Pasadena’s Finest.

“We’re very adaptable,” Joey Burns said of his musically diverse band Calexico. That’s why you’ll often hear the band collaborating with an eclectic mix of musicians from Iron & Wine to Nancy Sinatra. “We love being in the hot seat and a lot of times.”
Elaborating on that, he said, “It never fails. You do a rehearsal with somebody and it feels really good…then you go and play live on stage and all of a sudden everything that was rehearsed completely changes. You’re just riding on the seat of your pants…the seat of your chair. You feel like you’ve lost the seat of your pants. It’s a beautiful kind of surge of adrenalin, excitement and pushing the envelope for the possibility of something new.” Continue reading →
That headline… something about it makes you want it to be true, no? Anyway, Natalie Portman was chilling on the Upper East Side set of her latest film Love and Other Impossible Pursuits yesterday. She didn’t mean to look like Annie Hall, I’m guessing?
Sarah Jessica Parker and her son James head off for another day of school. Check out those Obama buttons. They’re selling like hotcakes I tell you.
Y’all prepare yourselves…
“To be number one, you must train like you are number two.” – Maurice Greene
Although the finish line is now nowhere in sight for Maurice, he gave one heck of a fight that left the viewers impressed. Confession time: I only knew of him from The Olympics..but man, talk about a strong and powerful run. His 2 dances left the judges impressed and the always critical Cheryl pleased (Quick Step:24/30; Paso Doble 24/30; 48/60). However, his fanbase was not strong enough to get him to the Final Four. Maybe the tux borrowed from one of The Spinners was a bad move.. Continue reading →
But can he scat or be-bop? Hugh Jackman signed autographs outside of the Good Morning America studios after appearing on the show. He’s currently promoting his new film Australia, which is surprisingly not about Men at Work.
In NYC, the stars aligned for a MoMa Film Benefit Gala honoring Baz Luhrmann held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. My friend once waited for the opening credits of Moulin Rouge! to leave to go to the men’s room. From that moment on, a bowel movement has been referred to in my inner circle as a “Moulin Rouge.” Not sure if that means anything to anyone.
The Black Keys sound like a modern-day Jimi Hendrix. No question. Their throwback sound make me think of how it must’ve been back in the day when you felt the music and the music itself meant something. Not like today. Anyway, let me get off my rocker, and rock out. The Keys have a DVD coming out Nov. 18: “The Black Keys Live at the Crystal Ballroom DVD” on Nov. 18. For just a sample, click the pic and get an mp3 of “I Am Mine” live. The disc will include 17 live songs, original music videos for “Your Touch,” “Just Got To Be,” and “Strange Times,” and behind-the-scenes footage of the band’s new album, Attack & Release. The performance was recorded on April 4, 2008 at a sold-out show at The Crystal Ballroom in Portland, OR. Bet you weren’t there. Bet you wanted to be.
Annie Leibovitz, Rubert Murdoch (with Wendi Deng), Rose Byrne and Joy Bryant were among the stars that came out for the MoMa Film Benefit Gala Honoring Baz Luhrmann at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Rupert Murdoch is a person I’d like to meet, I mean buy this Web site, I mean meet… um… awkward. More photos coming…
Anyone who knows Evan Ginzburg, a friend of the site, knows that his Legends Radio show is among the best in terms of pro-wrestling and all walks of pop culture. Last week, he had Jimmy Valiant, actor Romeo Roselli (another friend of the pop), singer Jessica Star, “Mr. Everything” Johnny Ledoux, The Professor Paul Pope and Ryan Blackheart on his show. Click here to have a listen.
“It has to be Keith Slettedahl (vocals/guitar) when we performed at The Troubadour in Los Angeles a little over a year ago.”
Stay tuned for my full interview with Adam later this week. Happy Tuesday.
