Jackie’s out and I’m in. The ELO is probably going to be a little different until Jackie gets back so settle in for a wild ride. Anyway, let’s kick things off with Blake Lively. If you check out my linkdumps regularly, you would see her fairly often.
Here’s an example of how things are different. Would Jackie link to a picture of a 5-year-old hitting a beer bong? The better question is who would let a 5-year-old hit a beer bong? (Lion’s Den U)
Maybe I’ll make up for that with the usual. Liam Neeson, maybe? How ’bout Rampage Jackson? Yes, it’s The A-Team trailer. (/Film)
And it’s time for your token Avatar is racist and anti-American essay. (New York Times)
After the jump, some sports/entertainment stuff, Leno vs. Conan, and the Taco Bell commercial girl.
Is this ELO-able? A Lindsay Lohan sex tape is being shopped around. Quite frankly, I’m shocked that we had to wait this long for one. (Hollyscoop)
We’ve all been captivated by the Conan vs. NBC fight over the last week and change. Let’s face it, though, he was so much better on Late Night. (The Daily Beast)
Is legendary lady killer (and baseball player) Derek Jeter about to become a one woman man? The New York Post, purveyor of all things unhealthy-Jeter-obsession-ish, thinks so. (NY Post)
One of Jeets’ former flames, Jessica Biel, heard the news and went insane. For some reason, she decided to climb up Mount Kilimanjaro. I’m assuming a crazy jealous rage caused her to do that. (People)
Keeping in sports, Tiger Woods is going to rehab. I’m sure Elin’s lawyers are saying “No, no, no.” Rehab always looks good in a divorce. (People)
More unlikely stuff for the ELO: It’s Great Moments in Drunken Hookup Failure. Probably not safe for work but the stories are better for it. (Deadspin)
Clearly I haven’t been paying much attention to those new Taco Bell commercials because I haven’t noticed Denise. But the whole of America has. (Thunder Treats)
The money that NBC made as a network on The Jay Leno Show is already gone. They’re going to be making a loss on the 2010 Winter Olympics. (National Post)
Good grief, Charlie Brown! You weren’t much of a kicker but you were even less of a baseball player. Statistics don’t lie. (Wezen-Ball) Unless we’re talking about Bert Blyleven’s Hall of Fame candidacy. Then stats are a lie.
J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek 2 has a release date. It doesn’t have a script or a title but let’s not worry about the cart being put in front of the horse. (Coming Soon) As long as Abrams doesn’t go Khan, we should be okay. After all, we’ve seen Space Seed once already.
Given Hollywood’s propensity for remakes and reboots of movies, I wouldn’t be too surprised to see one of these in a movie some time soon. (Top Gear)
Yesterday was National Hat Day. To celebrate the occasion, here’s the SI Swimsuit salute to chapeaus. (Sports Illustrated)
Let’s keep with the Conan/Leno feud. Leno had Jimmy Kimmel on his show the other night. Kimmel kept scoring on Leno. And NBC wants to keep him?
