Entertainment Link-Off: Green With Envy

I’m still covering the pop culture beat for Jackie but don’t worry because he’ll be back in July. In the meantime, here’s Blake Lively who is wearing far more clothes than the last batch of photos of hers that I saw.

After a publicity blitz that included TV ads, interviews and allegedly leaked alleged Blake Lively nude self-portraits, Green Lantern premiered this weekend. I’m guessing that being called a contender for worst movie of the year wasn’t what they were going for though. (Slate)

After the jump, the best of movies, the worst of movies and Conan’s best commencement speech in the history of the world. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Superheroes Galore!

Kicking off this edition of the Entertainment Link-Off is Scarlett Johansson. She’ll be appearing in the upcoming Iron Man sequel, which is a film I intend on seeing on opening day.

After the jump, a bunch of superhero related links and a random Youtube music recommendation from me! Continue reading

The Humanoids: Madness

The whole world has gone mad! Not just March Mad but generally mad. People doing ridiculous things that would be extremely newsworthy if it wasn’t for a little basketball tournament that was known as March Madness. Celebrities have gone mad. Sport organization management has gone mad. Governments have gone made. And Gus Johnson has gone mad. Oh, Gus is always that amped up? Well, that’s why we love him.

Speaking of madness, cheap radio show/podcast plug: Our 50th show to air on radio is coming up on March 30th. That’s going to display our complete and utter madness. Continue reading

The Humanoids: Pants On The Ground

Every week there are lots of people looking like fools whether or not they have their pants on the ground with the gold in their mouth and hat turned sideways. This week’s victims on The Humanoids have all looked like fools over the last week. Well, most have. I sorta tossed a whole pile of folks as looking foolish over the Conan O’Brien mess. Of course, I have to look like a fool by calling this post “Pants on the Ground.” Fortunately I don’t have any gold in my mouth… Well, not since I got that retaining bar removed. Whoever gets braces is a fool because they’re being ripped off. Sure my teeth are straighter but that bar was there for six years of annoyance. Anyway, let’s get on with the post. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Cheers Conan

I know the post is about Conan O’Brien (mostly), but let’s start with the drop dead gorgeous ex-Friday Night Lights starlet Adrienne Palicki.

Let’s start with a recap of the final Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien (Kansas City Star)

Conan has to stay off TV for the next seven months but what if he never came back? He could make a huge impact on the interweb. (New York Times)

Did you know that Artie Lange (of talking about Joe Buck sucking cock fame) predicted that the whole Conan mess would happen? (The Comic’s Comic)

After the jump, lots more on Conan, slightly NSFW sports stuff, and some Simpsons just because. Continue reading

The Humanoids: Wrestling with Reality

I’m back with more Humanoids fun. The grind at my 9-to-5 is picking up speed. That’s the sort of thing that you have to get used to as you transition from school life to the working world. As hard as we try, we can’t go to work on Fridays on four hours of sleep and with a massive hangover. If you’re an Ivey student/grad include Thursdays in the previous sentence. Reality is just starting to settle in on the many recent graduates around the world. Some people accept that and will move on with the daily grind for the next 40 or 45 years. Other people will do just about anything to fight off the start of the rest of their life. Today’s targets on The Humanoids are battling with what their futures will be.

After two weeks off since the last edition of The Humanoids, I kept forgetting to get around to writing this edition. I usually start writing long before Friday rolls around. I see something interesting during the week and just riff on it. It doesn’t matter if it happens Saturday morning after the column hits the web or Thursday night before the column goes to the web. So with all the interesting things that happened over the last week, naturally, I wait until Thursday night to even start writing the column. There’s nothing I do better than procrastinate… Except for maybe tell jokes on radio. Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Alter the Ending

This week’s Entertainment Link-Off features Kristen Stewart. She’s currently starring in that vampire flick that all the ladies are flocking to this weekend. The books and movies might not be any good, but they’re doing a fine job sucking money out of people. Heck, I’m giving it free publicity by mentioning it here. Seriously, what’s so appealing about vampires that lacks the bite? Nevermind, they’re flailing over that dude who was offed by Voldemort.

After the jump more Twilight related stuff, Chuck returns, a few TV tidbits and a look at Dashboard Confessional’s latest album ‘Alter the Ending’. Continue reading

Wednesday Link-Off: I’ve Seen Better Days

eliza-dushku-complex-4I didn’t want to Dushku you out on Sunday but if you’re going to lead a link-dump with Eliza Dushku, this is how you’ve got to do it.

Here’s a collection of 10 great Super Dave stunts. The world is a better place when the world’s greatest daredevil superstar entertainer is on TV. (Unreality)

And they thought fighting in hockey was bad. When CFL teammates get into it at practice, they bust out the shovels to settle things. (AP/Google)

Zombie movies are all the rage again. However, not all zombie movies have been a hit or even remotely memorable. (New York Magazine)

After the jump, the best sports TV hotties, strange bathroom signs, and DOWN GOES O’BRIEN! Continue reading

Entertainment Link-Off: Warning – Long Entry Ahead!

jessica stroup 18

UPDATE: An interesting article on the demise of politically based dramas including CW’s “Body Politic”. The executive producers are currently shopping the show around. Perhaps a “Save Body Politic” campaign should begin eh? (New York Times)

Welcome to another edition of the Entertainment Link-Off. Headlining this article is Jessica Stroup. You may recognize her as Silver on the CW’s 90210. The show is horrendous, but I still tune in and it’s all because of her. She also had a multi-episode stint during the first season of Reaper (one of the few good shows on the CW). See, the show has its fair share of eye candy. It’s also quite funny… definitely worth checking out! While the CW decided to bury Reaper alive during the May upfronts, the show is still on hanging on through “life support” (I’m looking at you ABC Studios and whatever cable network they’re pitching it to now). For the latest updates and to find out how you can keep the show alive, click here.

After the jump lots of TV tidbits, a bit on movies, new artists alert and a Jessica Stroup picspam!  Continue reading
