Todd Graff, Tony Award nominated actor for his performance in Baby, as well as director of the films Bandslam and Camp, is set to direct the upcoming film of the Broadway musical Damn Yankees, according to deadline.com. As previously announced, Jim Carrey is attached to play Applegate, while Jake Gyllenhaal is expected to play Joe Hardy. The film will be produced by New Line Cinema and producing team Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who produced the Academy Award winning film, Chicago.

Graff is expected to do a rewrite of the screenplay, originally by Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel. The film is expected to be a modern adaptation of the classic musical.

Damn Yankees has music and lyrics by Richard Adler and Jerry Ross, book by George Abbott and Douglass Wallop and is based on Wallop's novel "The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant." It is the story of Joe Boyd, the ultimate baseball fan, who sells his soul to the Devil for the chance to help his team win the pennant race against the Yankees. The Devil is aided by the sexy Lola, who seduces a now younger, physically transformed Joe, but ultimately helps him outsmart the Devil and return to his beloved wife.

Graff's writing credits include Used People, The Vanishing, and The Beautician and the Beast. As an actor, Graff appeared in several films including Death to Smoochy, Dominick and Eugene, Strange Days, Not Quite Paradise, and The Abyss. He was nominated for a Tony Award for his portrayal of Danny in Broadway's Baby in 1984.

Girls meets Cow

A short making-of featurette that includes an interview with Claire Danes, Julia Ormond, Catherine O'Hara, director Mick Jackson, and Temple Grandin, the inspiration of HBO's new original film of the same name. Temple Grandin premiers Saturday, February 6 on HBO at 8pm ET.


Reviews have been very positive for Mick Jackson and Claire Danes so far. I'm so looking forward to seeing this even though I don't have HBO. I know she doesn't have many fans on ONTD, but I love Claire!

Dolly is amazing, fierce, hilarious, gets up at 3am to look pretty!

Dolly Parton gets up front and very personal



Dolly Parton is writing a musical about her life. If there's a movie, she's wondering how Scarlett Johansson would work out.

With that in mind, you can be sure that the Dolly musical won't be inhibited by any false modesty on her part.

Nor is it likely to leave any skeletons unrattled, for Miss Parton is endearingly upfront - in more ways than the obvious - about every aspect of her life.

When we meet at her all-pink place in Nashville, Tennessee, she loses no time in telling me about the casting couch invitations that came thick and fast when she first became a country singer.

'I never slept with anyone to advance my career. If I slept with someone, it was only because I wanted to.'

Then there was the long period of depression after a partial hysterectomy.

'It lasted several months until one day I just said to myself: "Right, get off your fat ass, or, if you really are suicidal, then go and shoot your brains out. But get your misery out of other people's lives and shut up."'

Collapse )

Dolly is perfect. I hate to disagree w/her, but I don't think Scarjo would be a good choice to play her. I don't think she could ever channel the sweet/tough/hilarious/campy/amazing essence that is Dolly. Also, I can't believe Carl has only seen her perform 1 time! Her marriage has always been so weird to me. It's like she's married to her husband from Steel Magnolias IRL.
Speaking of Steel Magnolias, everybody bettah RECOGNIZE and go add Nine to Five, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Steel Magnolias, and Straight Talk to your Netflix queue. That's right, I said Straight Talk. "Get off the cross, honey! Somebody needs the wood!"

Oh, and does anyone remember back in the day when Dolly did that song w/Billy Ray Cyrus and there were rumors that they were having an affair?
Guurl, check out the early '90s country diva fierceness in this video (including Billy Ray)... all that's missing is Reba!

James Murphy [LCD Soundsystem, DFA] "Greenberg" Soundtrack



We told you James Murphy was scoring (and cameoing) in Noah Baumbach's Greenburg, which also stars Ben Stiller and Rhys Ifans, when not finalizing LCD Soundsystem's anticipated, ostensibly slower, more rock-inclusive, and definitely vlogged about third album. We know the LCD's due sometime in March, but can do you one or two better with Murphy's Greenburg soundtrack: There are 11 solo tracks on it plus Galaxie 500, Duran Duran, Albert Hammond, Jr.'s dad, and others.

Taylor Lautner Will Be Stretch Armstrong





Yes, it’s true. Taylor Lautner is now no longer just a hulking werewolf. He will soon embody Hasbro’s popular ’80s toy in Universal’s adaptation of Stretch Armstrong. The movie, to be produced by Brian Grazer, will be released in 2012 in 3-D. The studio has yet to hire a director for the movie, but Steve Oedekerk (Bruce Almighty) has written the script. Universal made the announcement late Friday night along with the news that they will push back their other big Hasbro property Battleship, from director Peter Berg, from its original July 2011 release to Memorial Day weekend 2012 to give the filmmaker more time to finish the large-scale project.

TV Ratings: CBS Wins Another Friday; Two New Hours of Smallville Are Better than One for CW

Posted on 06 February 2010 by Robert Seidman

Scoreboard CBS ABC FOX NBC CW
Rating/Share: Adults 18-49 2.1/7 1.6/5 1.5/5 1.3/4 1.2/4
Total Viewers (million) 9.01 6.23 3.99 5.53 2.77

 

As is typical, CBS won Friday night.  Both Ghost Whisperer and Medium pulling a 2.2 rating with adults 18-49.  The two hour Smallville “Absolute Justice” special averaged a 1.2 rating with adults 18-49.  The first hour of “Absolute Justice” averaged a 1.1 with adults 18-49 and 2.6 million viewers, with the second hour averaging a 1.3 adults 18-49 rating and nearly 3 million viewers (2.94).

In the post-Dollhouse era, FOX rose to third place for the night getting a particularly (relatively) healthy 1.8 adults 18-49 rating from Kitchen Nightmares.  A House repeat proved stronger than a Law & Order repeat, at least with adults 18-49.

Shark Tank trailed Kitchen Nightmares with adults 18-49, but the 4.66 million average viewers for its season finale were its biggest ever Friday night audience.

The Jay Leno Show spent its final Friday telecast in its usual fashion – a distant third.

Here is the half hour Smallville detail via Marc Berman:

Neil Young tribute set for Vancouver Winter Olympics

Members of Broken Social Scene, Iron & Wine, Sun Kil Moon, Ron Sexsmith and Joan As Police Woman are among the artists confirmed to appear at a concert celebrating the music of Neil Young as part of the upcoming Vancouver Winter Olympics.

The event will be held Feb. 18 at the city's Queen Elizabeth Theatre and will be produced by Hal Willner, a veteran organizer of multi-artist tribute shows. The concert will dig "deep into Young's massive catalog to illuminate hits and obscurities alike with magical pairings of song and singer," according to planners.

A host of other notable concerts are on tap in conjunction with the Olympics, including Phoenix on Jan. 22, Steve Earle on Jan. 23, Stars on Feb. 19 and Martha Wainwright on March 18.

In addition, Feist will make a rare recent concert appearance on Feb. 17 at the Orpheum. As a pre-teen, the artist performed as a dancer in the opening ceremonies for the 1988 Calgary Winter Games.

Neyo on Lindsay Lohan's 3rd album!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Ne-Yo has cast doubt on Lindsay Lohan's pop return after the actress/singer abandoned plans to record more songs with the R&B hitmaker. The "Miss Independent" singer worked with Lohan in 2008 on her single "Bossy" and made arrangements to head back into the studio to record more music together for her forthcoming third album.

But Ne-Yo has not heard from Lohan since and he's not sure he ever will. He tells PopTart, "We were doing some stuff and then it just fell off and hasn't got back on. I'm not gonna hold my breath."

However, the smooth star is refusing to give up on the project altogether and has called on Lohan to get in touch when she's "ready". He adds, "Lindsay, when you're ready to get it in (finish their collaborations), give me a call."

Lohan announced plans for her next album, tentatively titled "Spirit in the Dark", in 2007 after signing with Universal Motown but the project has no expected release date.

Conservatives blast Oscar best picture nominees as 'Idiotic'



New York Post film critic Kyle Smith and I agree on a lot of things about the Oscars, notably that "Inglorious Basterds" was a terrific film and that "An Education" scribe Nick Hornby should be writing lots more movies. But Smith is a conservative and as his brethren in Washington have proved again and again that conservatives see the world through a very rigid ideological lens. Even when it comes to movies. So if you thought it was nutty for conservatives to claim that Barack Obama is a socialist, even when his administration is loaded with rich guys from Goldman Sachs, you can imagine what they thought of yesterday's Oscar nominations.

Hmm.. if they dislike any movie that can be considered as anti-military/war theme, I thought they should include Avatar too? But then, according to a reader's comment, "How strange? The Post, a paper owned by Fox which financed "Avatar" is trashing all of the Oscar competition. Shouldn't a conservative be against the anti-corporate message in "Avatar" or do you give that a pass if it makes the parent company 2 billion dollars?"

Jersey Shore’s Ronnie Magro Tweets the ‘N Word’

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Someone needs to tell Ronnie that using the ‘N’ word ISN’T COOL!

Ronnie Magro, 23, star of MTV’s hit Jersey Shore thought it would be totally appropriate to use an incredibly offensive racial slur while tweeting at his fellow cast mate Vinny Guadagnino on Feb 4. “That’s what’s up my dude … miss you my n*gga,” he tweeted. “LA isn’t the same without you.”

Now that Ronnie is a public figure he needs to realize that he is also a role model. Even though he might have meant it in jest the issue is that the word itself has a deeper meaning for a lot of people. Several public figures have been admonished and humiliated for using racists remarks. For instance, Don Imus made his infamous remarks on his national radio show Imus in the Morning on Apr. 4 2007 when he called the Rutgers women’s basketball team, “nappy headed hoes.” His comments later lead to CBS’s canceling his morning show.

Rapper Eminem won’t even use the ‘n’ word in his music. “It’s just a word I don’t feel comfortable with,” he has said. “If a white kid came up to me and said it, I probably would look at him funny.” Eminem did use the word in tapes that he recorded as a teenager but he has apologized repeatedly for using it.

Who could forget actor Mel Gibson’s anti-semtic comments that he made to a police officer when he was pulled over for a DUI in 2006 — his comments have haunted him since that incident. Michael Richards, (aka Kramer from Seinfeld) went on a racist tirade at the Laugh Factory in LA that same year, leading to nationwide outrage.

Ronnie did apologize later by tweeting, “I apologize … don’t get offended … was talking to my boy Vinny … settle down … I love you all.”

But that’s just not a good enough apology and it’s NEVER okay to ever use racist slurs.

Watchmen (Film) Sequel? "Not A Chance" Says Hollywood



Rumors of a comic book sequel to Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons' Watchmen may be racing around the internet, but that doesn't mean that Warner's movie division is tempted to go back to the well again.

An anonymous source told Deadline Hollywood's Nikki Finke that we won't be seeing Zack Snyder's Watchmen 2 anytime soon:

There is no truth to anything related to a movie sequel. Not a chance by a longshot.


Considering the underperformance of the movie at the box office, this doesn't come as the greatest surprise. In related news, former Wizard magazine staffer Sean T. Collins disputes the original rumor's implication that the magazine was involved in some DC Comics discussions about reviving Watchmen:

The piece didn't reflect any inside information of any kind, about the desire to introduce Watchmen's world into continuity, creating new projects involving it or anything else (like doing the same for The Dark Knight Returns, say — that's Frank Miller's dystopian Batman laying the smackdown on Rorschach, of course)... When Wizard staffers realized that readers were taking the published piece to indicate that the Watchmen-verse was one of DC's 52 universes and/or that DC would be publishing new Watchmen-based comics — for which there were no such plans, at least as far as anyone involved with the piece knew — they quickly ran a clarification on the website, which unfortunately is now lost to the the site's reboots.

"I thought I was gonna die," she says in an explosive new biography. "I wanted to BE the artists I loved, like Mick Jagger and Andy Warhol - and I thought the only way to do it was to live the lifestyle.

"But then I realised my father's sister Joanne, who'd died at 19, had instilled her spirit in me. She was a painter and a poet - and I had a spiritual vision I had to finish her business."

NBC does Conan dirty yet again


How badly does NBC just want to put this Whole Conan Thing behind them? Via Peter Kafka at All Things Digital, so badly, they're trying to eradicate all history of it ever having existed from The Internet. What history? Exactly.

But come on, Peter Kafka. NBC wouldn't be so stupid and brazen as to remove the archives of their first serious cause célèbre to come to the network in a while, would they?

If you said "yes" outloud just now, well, you're right. Per Peter:

A little odd, given that a couple of days ago, the network was offering every single "Tonight Show" episode O'Brien had taped on NBC.com. But then again, everything about this story has been odd. I've asked NBC for comment. NBC - at least, I'm assuming it's NBC - has also been aggressive about taking down Conan episodes from Google's YouTube (GOOG).

Budget Babe
"At 18 I was cut off financially! Seventeen was a happy time for me, but 18 was hard. People think that I've had it easy, but I haven't had it as easy as you think. When I went off to college, I wasn't going to class in Louis Vuitton. There were definitely times when my bank account was zero. I was financially independent, but I wasn't exactly living a lavish life. My dad was really adamant about that. He'd say 'You're going to go to college and live it like everyone else, because if you want to make your own decisions, you need to support yourself too.'"</i>


Edited to add this quote from a prior Seventeen interview with Lauren where she discussed in more detail how her parents handled money. I believe her dad probably did cut her off. The Conrads definitely did not spoil their kids.

It sounds like your parents were pretty generous. Were they?

NO! They made me submit a clothing budget every year to teach me how to manage money. I had to be like “I need six pairs of jeans”…all the way down to socks and underwear! They’d go through my budget, edit it down and eventually OK a certain total, which they would put on a credit card. As soon as it was gone, I was done.”

Captain America Update: Ryan McPartlin has audtioned!


If you are fan of the television show "Chuck", if you've even caught a glimpse of it I don't know how you couldn't be, you're familiar with Ryan McPartlin. The actor plays Chuck's brother in law and us "Chuckheads" know him as "Captain Awesome". Apparently one role as Captain wasn't enough for McPartlin and he had to audition for another one, no I'm not talking about Captain Jack Sparrow, that guy Depp seems to have that part hooked. The coffee bean addict himself, Clint Morris over at Moviehole has the exclusive on McPartlin reading for the role of Captain America for the upcoming "Captain America: The First Avenger".

“The one thing I can't stand are these actors that are twittering about auditioning for Captain America. It's really tacky. With that said, it is in the casting process and like many other actors, I read for it, so we'll wait and see what happens. Regardless, I'm pretty psyched to be Captain Awesome for the time being.”

He is right, the actors being so jazzed up about reading for a role that they tweet and blog about it is getting a bit out of hand. What we can take away from McPartlin's quote is that you can probably rule him out as the next Captain America since he is openly talking about the audition. If that is indeed the case, this wouldn't be the first time McPartlin has come close to slipping into a pair of blue spandex. He was up for the role of Superman in Bryan Singer's "Superman Returns" before Brandon Routh flew away with it. McPartlin greeted Routh with an earful while on the set together filming "Chuck", because there, he is still Captain Awesome.

Worst Super Bowl Half-time Shows

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Who plays the halftime show during Sunday's Super Bowl, and thank God for that. If this were 1990 instead of 2010, we might have to watch a bad Elvis impersonator perform a card trick involving the New Kids on the Block, Olympic figure skater Dorothy Hamill and the Miami Sound Machine.

America has become much worse in recent years at making cars, balancing its budget and producing coherent America's Got Talent judges. But our ability to create tolerable Super Bowl halftime shows has improved at least 1,000 percent.

The Who could play only children's instruments, Roger Daltrey could sing his lines between bites of a corn dog and the band could limit its song selection to the album It's Hard, and the halftime performance would still be only one-tenth as bad as the Up With People show during Super Bowl XVI in 1982.

Accompanying this column are the worst Super Bowl halftime shows of all time. Religious fundamentalists may be upset that the Janet Jackson/Justin Timberlake exposed nipple Super Bowl halftime in Houston was relegated to an honorable mention. But as atrocious as that performance was, I'd rather see it 600 more times than watch Elvis Presto's 3-D card trick again.

Keira Knightley's ' stalker ' arrested



Keira Knightley felt "threatened" by a man arrested on suspicion of stalking her.

The British actress - who is currently starring in the West End show 'The Misanthrope' at London's Comedy Theatre - called police last Thursday after she was constantly bothered by 41-year-old Mariek Daniluk, who would regularly turn up at the theatre to see her.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Keira felt threatened by this guy who turned up a number of time and tried to speak to her. He did not make any specific threats to her but she was concerned enough to call the police."

Police have confirmed the man was arrested outside the theatre over harassment allegations.

A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police said: "A 41-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of harassment on Thursday . The arrest follows concern expressed by a woman."

Polish national Daniluk - who lives in Palmers Green, North London - was held in prison overnight and questioned by officers yesterday.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon Actress Caught in Earthquake Donation Scandal



BEIJING : Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi is suspected of delaying the release of donation funds she had garnered for victims of the 2008 Szechuan earthquake during her fundraising activities at the Cannes Film Festival that same year.

Zhang's fiance, multi-millionaire Vivi Nevo, had reportedly set up the Zhang Ziyi Foundation on her behalf in the United States to conduct fundraising activities for the earthquake victims.

Citing information from Nevo's close friend in Hong Kong, Chinese media reports alleged that the Foundation's donation funds, earmarked for the Chinese Red Cross Foundation, were channelled into Zhang's personal overseas account and remained there for almost 18 months after her fundraising efforts at the film festival.

The actress had actively sought donations during the 2008 Cannes Film Festival to aid victims of the deadly 8.0 earthquake in Szechuan, China.

She reportedly also felt so strongly about the calamity that she pledged to donate one million yuan (S$208,000) and even berated festival attendees who were ignorant about the natural disaster which claimed almost 60,000 lives.

Following Zhang's statement in January that she "welcomed questions about the matter and would report on the status of the donations"; her manager Ji Ling Ling told Chinese reporters on Tuesday that "[detailed accounts of the donations] will be released by the end of the week".

The promised details have yet to be released. However, some believe Zhang may have simply been unaware that the funds were parked in her account for so long, resulting in the delay.

Chinese actresses Zhou Xun and Vicki Zhao as well as singer Na Ying have also been affected by the fallout from Zhang's donation scandal. People have questioned whether they are donating as much as they claimed to be.

Dubbed the "Fraudulent Donation Gate", the incident follows on the heels of December's "Ink Splash Gate" where a group of hooded men splashed black ink on a giant window advertisement bearing Zhang's image, after creating a scene at the Park Hyatt Beijing hotel.

It is unknown if Zhang's recent scandals will threaten her numerous endorsement deals.

According to Chinese media reports, representatives from the brands Zhang endorses have refused to comment on the matter.

C. Love: 'Lady GaGa is not very compelling'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Courtney Love has admitted that she doesn't understand Lady GaGa's appeal.

The Hole rocker told StyleList that she prefers "rock music" to GaGa's tracks.

"I don't think her music is that compelling," Love explained. "I'm an old hippie. You know what I listened to last night? Stevie f**king Nicks."

However, Love added that she has started to warm to GaGa since seeing her duet with Elton John at the Grammy awards.

"At the VMAs, I really wasn't sure," she said. "One of my best friends is [photographer David] LaChappelle and he loves her. He really helped legitimise her by doing a Rolling Stone cover. He came in like, 'I met this girl and I love her, she doesn't have a mean bone in her body'.

"She did something the other night and I was like, 'You know what, honey, take the cake, seriously'."

Love recently announced that she wants to "save" Ke$ha from being moulded into a less controversial artist.

Saints' Scott Fujita talks about College Football's Patron Saint's Super Bowl Ad



New Orleans Saints linebacker Scott Fujita addresses hot-button issues the way he might meet an opposing running back: directly. So Fujita was not shy Tuesday about entering two Super Bowl debates that have little to do with his team’s game Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts. At issue are two Super Bowl television commercials, one about abortion, the other about gay rights.

The first ad — which will be shown on CBS — is an antiabortion message from Focus on the Family that includes Tim Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy winner from Florida. The other ad — which was rejected by CBS — is for ManCrunch, a gay dating service. Fujita has spoken out before in favor of abortion rights and gay rights.

“It’s just me standing up for equal rights,” Fujita said. “It’s not that courageous to have an opinion if you think it’s the right thing and you believe it wholeheartedly.”

The Tebow ad suggests that Tebow’s mother was advised about having an abortion when she was pregnant with him, but chose instead to give birth. The issue resonates with Fujita because he was adopted, and Fujita said he respected Tebow for standing up for what he believed in. Collapse )

SVU Executive Producer: Meloni IS NOT leaving SVU.


LOS ANGELES, Calif. --

Christopher Meloni is sticking with “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” executive producer Neal Baer Tweeted on Friday, despite a story in Australia’s Courier-Mail to the contrary.

Asked by a fan if the star would be leaving his role as Detective Eliot Stabler after the show’s twelfth season, Baer Tweeted simply, “No.”

The Courier-Mail story, which quoted the star as saying “12 years is enough,” was no longer online as of Saturday.

In other “SVU” news, however, the producer did dish on casting scoops for the show, Tweeting that Jeri Ryan, Teddy Sears (“A Single Man”), Quinton Aaron (“The Blind Side”), a “star of Tyler Perry’s movies” and the “star of an HBO series” would all appearing on one upcoming episode of the procedural drama.

“And who said that Jeri Ryan was gonna be in that episode [too] and knock heads with Ice-T? Oh, I just did,” he Tweeted.

I Hope They Sell Weave In Prison




Beyonce
will soon be trading in her hair glitz and high fashion designer duds for standard court room apparel, because according to StyleList that’s exactly where shes headed.

The pop super star is being sued by Hong Kong manufacturer Vier International Ltd. for breach of contract. StyleList states,

According to the complaint filed in the U.S. District Court in Manhattan, the apparel maker claims it lost more than $500,000 because clothing company Donna Loren LLC and shipping outfit HJM International were “conspirators who induced the shipment of goods to the United States with the intent to convert them or pay less than the agreed upon contract price,” says the source.

The alleged low-balling scheme reaches far and wide. Vier also names Beyond Productions LLC and House of Deréon — both companies owned by Knowles and partners — for taking part through purchase orders and requesting manufacturer specifications.

Along with looking for its $500k back, Vier is not playing around: The company included claims under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO), the same law used in most Mafia prosecutions!

While 500K seems like pocket change for Bey, the legal implications involved in his case could smear her flawless facade. We’re sure her dad/manager/pitbull Mr. Knowles is already working diligently to separate Beyonce from this mess. Either way, get your legal team together girl!

The Great Na'vi Destroyer Talks About "Dear John;" Burned Manparts Not Mentioned



I have to confess that I don't think I could have picked Channing Tatum out of a line-up before meeting him on the set of Dear John. I knew vaguely that he was one of those incredibly buff Ambercrombie Models, I knew he danced, and knew he was going to be in G.I. Joe, but I didn't have a very precise image of him. As I disembarked from our car, he galloped past me, and I didn't recognize him right away. Shocking!

I think everyone has an image of what they think Tatum must be like. I'm happy to say that you're wrong. For one thing, he's charismatic in a way that I don't think has come across onscreen yet. I hope Dear John changes that for him. In person, he's incredibly warm, friendly, and sweet and no one could stop singing his praises. As you can guess, actors run the gauntlet as far as approachability goes, but there wasn't a smack of phony affability in Tatum. He even gave us all a hug after our interview -- and no, none of us asked -- which is not something actors really do. Come on, I don't want to hug 99% of the people I meet in a professional day. And yes, girls, you can feel every muscle.

Here's our Q&A with Tatum, which Cinematical participated in with UGO and Coming Soon. The questions were not all asked by Cinematical, so we've kept them all in bold as a reference.

My Favourite



Girls Aloud hottie Kimberley Walsh (28) showed up at the launch of New Look’s new flagship store in London yesterday and she looked great in a figure-hugging dress.

Kimberley has something to say about maintaining her figure:

‘I eat healthily and in moderation. I’d put on weight easily if I wasn’t in a group doing dancing and stuff.

‘I’m not one of the lucky ones who can eat what they want.

‘I think I’m quite normal – not thin, not fat – and my stomach’s OK because I used to dance loads.’

OBVIOUSLY THE NOBEL FOUNDATION HASN'T SEEN 2GIRLS1CUP

THE INTERNET HAS BEEN NOMINATED FOR THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE


Candidates for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize include a Russian human rights group, a Chinese dissident and an inanimate object: the Internet, people who made the nominations said Tuesday.

Collapse )

The Internet was proposed by the Italian version of Wired magazine, which cited its use as a tool to advance "dialogue, debate and consensus through communication" and to promote democracy. Organizers said signatories to its petition backing the nomination include 2003 peace laureate and exiled Iranian activist Shirin Ebadi -- which would make it a legitimate entry.

Weatherman freaks out during "Snowpocolypse"



Put down the PCP Jim Kosek of Accuweather.com. Yes, Washington, D.C. got a lot of snow. Yes, it was bad.

No, it did not warrant this psychotic episode.

Some might argue that this isn't "celeb" news, but hey, the guy is on TV, and by using Jersey Shore logic, that makes him a celeb, no? :-P Plus, it's Saturday night and it's slow and this is good for a laugh, so humour me?
