TeaTime

John Mayer tearfully apologizes, admits he tries too hard to be clever.


John apologizing at some show tonight, gets at little choked up at some point. And yes I know it's a little long but i'm not transcribing it!


Edit
orlybb Was nice enough to transcribe this for you all. Thanks BB!

"it's been difficult because in my quest to be clever... in the quest to be clever and try to slither out of what i perceived to be constant persecution or somebody trying to pin me, which may or may not ever really be happening, but i think that it is a lot of the time when it's actually not. in the quest to be clever, i completely forgot about the people that i love and that love me. and as i have begun to (???) a whirlpool of selfishness, and greediness and arrogance...and thinking if i just continue to be speedy and witty and pull together as many fast words and phrases as i could, that i would be clever enough to buy myself another day without anybody pinning me down and saying 'you're a creep'. and when i should have just given that up and played the guitar... so i decided i would try to be as clever as possible all the time. and i did that at the expense of people that i love and that feels absolutely terrible. it feels worse than any headline i thought i could get my way out of. and i think it's important that you know that everybody on this stage is here playing with me not because they condone what i say in any interview... they are not on this stage because they support what i said, they're on this stage because they support myself as a possible future grown-up. and maybe they see something that i don't... so maybe i need to take a break from trying to be clever and spend a little time looking at what they see. cause they've done an unbelievable thing standing on this stage and standing by my side tonight. it's just not worth being clever.... i'm out .... just wanna play my guitar ...

My BF, Soap Star Scott Evans, Celebrates His Former Co-Star's Birthday

My BF, Soap Star Scott Evans ("One Life to Live's" Oliver) helped his former co-star Crystal Hunt (Stacy) celebrate her 25th birthday at Johnny Utah's in New York City. Many of the "One Life" cast and crew were also in attendance, and you can check out the pics under the cut.

Heidi Klum does DT Magazine


Looking fabulous at the age of 36-years-old, Heidi Klum, showed off her toned physique in the February 2010 issue of DT magazine.


The “Project Runway” hottie’s new spread consisted of steamy shots pulled from the book Heidilicious by Rankin, along with a few other sexy poses.


As previously reported by Gossip Center, Miss Klum is spending this Valentine’s Day 3,000 miles away from hubby Seal – but recently dished on her plans to surprise her musician beau.


“I’m making a very fun box of heart things. Kind of like an explosion of things: confetti hearts with cute underwear and chocolates. It’s a fun surprise box for him,” she explains.

Johnny Weir makes Vancouver feel like home

Johnny Weir brought his blankie, his favorite brand of fabric softener, and the picture of Lady Gaga.



The figure skater learned from his first Olympics how to make the athletes' village feel like home. Weir was surprised by the spartan accommodations in Turin in 2006. This time, he intends to be totally comfortable.

"I definitely can make any village work now," Weir said. "I'm in a place where every room can work - especially if you have a giant Lady Gaga picture, anywhere can work."

Weir and other American athletes went through team processing by the U.S. Olympic Committee on Wednesday, a big step in getting settled in Vancouver. After filling a giant rolling bin with U.S. gear, Weir planned to move into his room - and decorate it.
ad_icon

He brought three 70-pound suitcases stuffed with everything from candles to his teddy bear. Weir has all the details covered, down to ensuring that his clothes will smell of a familiar scent if he does laundry.

Weir is sharing a room with American ice dancer Tanith Belbin, which will feature "our icon," Lady Gaga, on the wall.

"She needs to be there watching over us, protecting us," Weir said.


Weir's favorite piece of U.S. gear was a white puffy vest from Ralph Lauren - but they didn't have one in his size. So his coach will wear it in his stead. Weir also liked the stretchy, fitted white pants American athletes will wear at the opening ceremony.

"They're very slimming and sucks in everything you don't want the world to see," he said.

Leading to the Olympics, people kept asking him, "How excited are you?" Weir would say, "You know, it's coming. It's a competition; I'm ready. I'm going to do it."

"I didn't really get those butterflies and the excitement until I stepped foot out of the airplane last night," he said.

The reality of his first Olympics started to hit teammate Jeremy Abbott, the two-time defending U.S. champ, as he picked up the red, white and blue gear.

"To get all this stuff that has USA across my chest or across my back, it's a really proud moment," the 24-year-old Abbott said.

The first Olympics he remember was 1992, when he was 7. He cheered American Paul Wylie, who had an exhilarating silver-medal performance. Now, Wylie is Abbott's mentor.

"It just reminds you that you're representing your whole country and that you have the support of a whole nation behind you," Abbott said. "This competition is unlike any other. It's more than just your family and your friends and your coaches. It's the whole country."

Murray's Patients: Manslaughter Shmanslaughter

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

One involuntary manslaughter charge later ... and Dr. Conrad Murray's patients in Las Vegas still can't wait to put their lives in his hands.

One of his patients -- Marietta Lewis -- claims Dr. Murray is responsible for saving her life, and she told us, "I made sure to call and have my name added to his patient wait list, so that when he comes back, I will still be under his care."

Well he's back ... Dr. Murray was photographed going into his Las Vegas office yesterday, just one day after he was freed on $75,000 bail.

We also spoke with Robert Day, who said he called Dr. Murray's office on Monday -- the day he pled not guilty in the Michael Jackson death case -- to schedule an appointment for today.

Luckily for them, Propofol injections are not an option -- because as part of the terms of Dr. Murray's freedom, he isn't allowed to administer anyone with powerful anesthetics.

this is a harry/draco post.

Tom Felton spoke to MTV about Draco Malfoy's relationship with Harry Potter in Deathly Hallows, where the two bond. Tom mentions that the pair do save each other's lives, so it is more than just a bitter school rivalry.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"It was one of the things I was really looking forward to with 'Deathly Hallows,' " he said. "My personal opinion is, deep down, Draco is desperate to get out of what he's in. In 'Half-Blood Prince,' he had a real wake-up call, realizing this is not what he wants to do, this isn't the path he wants to go down. Unfortunately, his parental influences aren't too good. He's kind of forced into the dark side. It's hard when Voldemort is sort of your step-uncle, in a weird way."

Felton said he's had long talks with director David Yates about the best way to approach the good/evil duality within Draco, and the payoff has been a couple thrilling on-camera confrontations with Radcliffe.

Kim Kardashian Gets Chummy With Reggie’s Parents…

So someone just left a comment on another blog post of mine asking why I didn’t post the pics of Kim Kardashian with Reggie’s parents. I really didn’t pay it much attention. It’s been a debate on whether she actually gets along with his family on most posts regarding the two so I guess this puts an end to it all:

Kim hung out with Reggie’s family on Saturday night at the Leather & Lace party, a day after Reggie “allegedly” proposed to her at Prime 112 in Miami. Reggie was not at the event (because he was gearing up for the Superbowl the next day) however, Kim walked the red carpet with his family and her mother.

Also, last week I was sent a clip of Reggie’s mother Denise on the Wendy William’s show but I haven’t paid it much attention until now. She talked about the Superbowl and spoke highly of “her future daughter in law”.

The real question is; If they are really engaged “When Is Kim going to start flaunting that ring?”

Whitney Port Desperate for a Valentine's Date Who's Clumsy Like Her


Before she was famous, Whitney Port was just a normal Brentwood, California native who was looking for love. And like all of us, she went through some awkward dates, some good dates, and some ones she'll never forget 

To get in the Valentines Day spirit, the reality star/fashion designer shared one of her favorite V-day moments on her blog where she fell flat on her face!  The clumsy City star, who is currently single and dateless this year is ALSO taking submissions from average Joe's to find herself a date.

Whitney wrote, “My very first date with my last boyfriend just happened to take place on Valentine’s Day. [...] I have a vivid image of going out afterward and watching him try to jump over a parking meter. After seeing he was able to do this, my competitive side came out full force and I just had to try it. Why I thought this would be acceptable to do in a dress and boots is beyond me. However, next thing you know I'm flat on my face after a failed attempt at hurdling the meter.”

Whitney continued, “If you think I sound like someone you’d be compatible with, then let's go on a date...I’m sure you’ll get to witness a clumsy Whit moment or two...they happen pretty frequently haha. Can’t wait to meet one of you!!”

Katherine Heigl to play Stephanie Plum in 'One for the Money"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

What do you get when you mix Katherine Heigl, lingerie and bounty hunting? A chick flick that guys are sure to enjoy.

The Grey's Anatomy star has signed on for the lead role in "One for the Money," based on the first book in the immensely popular Stephanie Plum series of novels by Janet Evanovich, Variety.com reports.

Heigl will play Plum, a lingerie buyer who takes on work as a bounty hunter to make some extra cash, setting off a series of adventures that has lead to 19 books so far, the most recent being "Finger Lickin' Fifteen."

In "One for the Money," Plum learns the ropes of bounty hunting by chasing down a wanted cop named Joseph Morelli, who happens to be the guy who took her virginity back when she was 16 and wrote about it on the bathroom wall of Mario's Sub Shop.

The movie version has been in the works since before "One for the Money" even hit the shelves in 1994, after Columbia Tristar snapped up the rights.

Reese Witherspoon was rumored to have been the original choice to play Plum, but the movie reportedly had languished on the development back burner when that casting did not pan out.

"One for the Money" will be Heigl's second big collaboration with Columbia Pictures and Lakeshore Entertainment, after "The Ugly Truth," which scored big at the box office despite being panned by critics, raking in $200 million worldwide.

The 20th Stephanie Plum novel, "Sizzling Sixteen," is set for release on June 22, according to the author's Web site.

Jessica Simpson thinks "sexual napalm" is funny

Jessica Simpson Laughs Off Mayer Comments

There's one person who wasn't offended by John Mayer's controversial Playboy interview -- Jessica Simpson.



Jessica was in L.A. last night -- and when we asked her how she felt about Mayer comparing her sex appeal to a "drug" and calling her "crazy" in the sack, Jessica turned red, smiled, laughed ... and gave an official "no comment."

John has since apologized for some other "racy" comments he made -- looks like Jessica has already forgiven him.

VIENNA — An Austrian entrepreneur says Lindsay Lohan won't make it to Vienna's famous Opera Ball as his celebrity date after all.

Richard Lugner, a quirky 77-year-old who each year invites a different female star to the flashy gala, told The Associated Press on Thursday that Lohan wasn't coming.

He says he will take male German singer, producer and entertainer Dieter Bohlen instead.

The limelight-loving Lugner says he is still looking forward to the evening and that he had received many date offers from people who "felt sorry for him."

Lugner's comments came just hours before the start of the all-night extravaganza that attracts socialites, dignitaries and politicians. His recent dates include Nicollette Sheridan, Dita Von Teese and Paris Hilton .

Lindsay Lohan won't attend the famous Vienna opera ball tonight (11.02.10) because she missed her flight to Europe. The 'Mean Girls' actress had been invited to the annual event by rich businessman Richard Lugner but failed to board her flight from Los Angeles to London because she was shopping in duty free. Lugner claims the British Airways aircraft had waited for the 23-year-old star - who was then due to get a connecting flight to Vienna - but when she boarded she was asked to leave because she couldn't afford the $22,000 the carrier charged for the two-hour delay. Lugner, 77, said: "She wanted to pay it, but her card's credit limit was not high enough."

TV Ratings Wednesday



FOX easily won the night across the major demographics and total viewing on the strength of an hour of American Idol which has remained very strong, dropping only around 5 percent versus the same night last season. Idol was up 22 percent versus last Wednesday (though last Wednesday was a “Road to Hollywood” special).

Human Target was up very slightly from a 2.4 last week to a 2.5 last night.

CBS was second for the night with both adults 18-49 and viewers. Its 8pm comedy block was resoundingly bested by a Charlie Brown Valentine special and The Middle, but Criminal Minds stood tall even against a strong American Idol, and CSI: NY won the 10pm hour increasing from last week by about 5 percent.

ABC’s sitcoms The Middle and Modern Family saw increases from last week, with The Middle reaching a 3.0 rating with adults 18-49, a series high. Modern Family matched it previous highs with adults 18-49. Cougar Town saw a steep drop (4.2 to 2.8).

Ugly Betty saw growth to a 1.7 rating at 10pm, its best numbers of the season, but it still lost to a repeat of Law & Order: SVU (which did about 18% better than the average for The Jay Leno Show in the timeslot).

In Late-Night:

* Conan O’Brien (0.8/4 in 18-49 in local people meters with an encore telecast) trailed CBS’s first-run LATE SHOW (1.2/5) in Nielsen’s 25 local markets with People Meters.

* At 12:35 a.m., Jimmy Fallon (0.4/3 in 18-49 in local people meters ) trailed CBS’s LATE LATE SHOW (0.6/4).

'American Idol:' Conan O'Brien the latest rumored replacement for Simon Cowell

Conan O'Brien is the latest rumored replacement for American Idol judge Simon Cowell.
Various media outlets report that executives may want O'Brien on the show. According to OK Magazine the follow outlets have made the reports. Irish Central reports: "Idol bosses think he’d be a huge draw now after all that Leno fuss.”

Media Life Magazine reports that the latest rumored replacement is Conan, but if American Idol is months away from choosing something than it’s more than likely false! The Daily Beast reports that Idol insiders said no offer has been made to Howard, he was never even being considered and the show is months away from choosing a replacement for Simon. What do you think - would O'Brien be a good replacement for Cowell. Howard Stern was also rumored to be a contender.

Who is Simon Cowell’s replacement – Conan O’ Brian or Howard Stern?

Simon Cowell the most talked about judge of the hit reality TV show American Idol is said to be leaving the show after this season. Soon after the Brit announced last month that he will be leaving the show judging the American Schedule of The X Factor which is created by him in Britain, speculations went rife with who will be the acerbic judge’s replacement.Firstly it was mentioned that Ryan Seacrest will done the cap pf a judge as well as the host however, the New York Post named a more interesting candidate – Howard Stern.

The Radio Jockey’s contract with Sirius radio ends by January 2011, and he has openly spoken about his future plans in his morning show,“I was approached by a major TV network to take over a TV show and leave here and do that next year — and I did turn it down… I’m not even sure if I want to be working. I’m waiting to see what happens,” Stern, as quoted by the Post.However, The Daily Beast reports according to the American Idol insiders, Howard was never approached for the job neither was he ever considered. So now with Stern going down it is being speculated that Conan O’Brain who is presently unemployed is being considered for the position of the judge for the American Idol’s next season. But the sources of AI show is not ready to comment on the people who are likely to be considered as the caustic Brit’s replacement, apart from the fact that they have quite a lot of time before zeroing down to anyone.
Cowell confirms that the Idol show offered him a lot of money to stay on however, he states, “But that wasn’t the reason behind it. I wanted to do something different. I wanted a new challenge.”

Hence for the time being it is anyone’s guess on who might be the next Simon Cowell of American Idol Season 10.

i am all about team coco, but i don't know about this.

the masturbating bear might make a better replacement for simon cowell they are both brown, hairy and manky bloody britons who like the fanny.

Lady Gaga Looking Good Here

Scottish actress Neve McIntosh has revealed that an old enemy is to return to the BBC science-fiction/fantasy series Doctor Who.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The Silurians, a race of underground reptiles, were first seen during the third Doctor Jon Pertwee era of Doctor Who in a 1970 episode called “Doctor Who and the Silurians.” They last appeared 26 years ago opposite Peter Davison, the fifth Doctor, in "Warriors of the Deep."
This was the only time that the Silurians have appeared alongside another reptilian race of monsters, their underwater counterparts and relatives, the Sea Devils (who were mentioned by the Doctor’s arch enemy the Master, played by John Simm in the 2009 episode “The End of Time,” which was the last story to feature David Tennant as the Doctor before Matt Smith takes over as the youngest ever actor in the role).
Neve made the revelation in an interview in the Perth Advertiser, which carried a story about her own role in the drama when it returns to British TV screens in the spring.
Of Matt Smith, she says: “I think he’s going to be really good, the best yet out of the new guys. The stories have got a bit darker. I play twins, and they’re big lizard warrior women.
“They’re one of the Silurian tribes that have been undisturbed under the earth. And of course we get disturbed.
“It’s the first time I’ve worn prosthetics but I’m still recognisable if you know me well enough.”

Her mention of “the new guys” is a reference to Christopher Eccleston (the ninth Doctor) and David Tennant (the tenth), the first and second Doctors in what is commonly known as “new Who,” as opposed to the so-called classic series.

When describing Kate's current battle they said, "In the one world, Kate’s helping new life, and in the other, she’s helping put life to rest – both put Kate in a “counselor” position, something that has to be unfamiliar for someone like her."

StyleList: Who would you say has the best style in real life?

Eric Daman: Taylor, Blake and Leighton all have really grown into their own style. They're really smart about it and they've grown into these fashionistas outside of the show. I mean, Serena's a fashionista, but Blake is also a fashionista.

SL: What about Taylor Momsen, though. She's kind of badass.


ED: She's a rocker. She has a band and, you know, she's 16. When she went on the show she was like 13, 12, I think she was just growing into who she was. She was living in New York City, going to all these parties and having all these other influences...you know, she's a rock star.

SL: Did her real-life transformation into a leather-wearing, hair-bleaching rock star influence her character? It certainly seems that way!


ED:She has a great relationship with the writers and I think the writers were smart enough to know how to write teenage angst. You know when you're 16, you become somebody else. When I was 16, I had, like, 3 earrings and a mohawk. You know it's part of being 16 and discovering who you are. It's very different than being 13 and being known for being Cindy Lou Who!

SL: How's her music?


ED: I saw her in concert and she's phenomenal. Really blew me away.

Courtney Love Restraining Order Extended

The judge's order prohibiting Courtney Love from having contact with her daughter -- Frances Bean Cobain -- has just been extended ... and the clock is now ticking on their relationship.

The judge had stripped Courtney of legal control of her daughter back in December. The judge also issued a restraining order. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, the restraining order has now been extended to April 9.

Fact is -- Frances Bean turns 18 in August. At that point, it's up to her ... not a judge ... to decide what relationship she wants to have with her mother.

For now, Frances Bean's guardians are Wendy O'Connor (Kurt Cobain's mom), and Kimberly Dawn Cobain (Kurt's sister).

A Tribute of Love and Romance from the Movies

In honor of Valentine's Day (the "holiday", not the movie):

We here at Moviefone may sometimes front like hardened cynics, complaining about how hackneyed or contrived the latest romantic comedy is, or even going so far as to rank the 25 worst ever. But deep down, we're hopeless romantics just like everyone else (yeah, even you, Steven Seagal).

To prove it, we've crafted this tribute to love and romance.

Send it to the person (or people) you love... Because if there's anything we've learned from watching movies, it's that sometimes screenwriters -- and the actors bringing their words to life -- can express our sentiments exactly.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Jamie Oliver wins the TED Prize & now wants to overhaul the America's food system . .

Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver on Wednesday called for an overhaul of America's food system, saying the country's poor decisions about what to eat are shortening life spans and increasing health care costs.

"My wish is for you to have a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, to inspire families to cook again and to empower people everywhere to fight obesity," he said in a speech at the TED Conference in Long Beach, California.

Oliver, who is best known for the TV series, "The Naked Chef," will star in an upcoming ABC series where he promotes local, healthy food as a way to fight obesity in Huntington, West Virginia, which he called the most unhealthy community in the United States.

"This is a global problem. It is a catastrophe. It is sweeping the world. England is right behind you [America], as usual," he said. "We need a revolution."

Oliver was awarded the TED Prize, which is given to speakers each year at the nonprofit group's conference. Prize winners are invited to make one "wish" that will change the world. The organization gives the winner $100,000 and helps honorees raise money to make their wishes come true.

Members of the audience stood up to pledge Oliver their support after his short talk.

David Ellefson concurs: "This is a huge moment for all of us, band and fans alike. It is a great celebration of the music from one of the biggest landmark albums of our career."

Ellefson will join Mustaine and Megadeth band members Shawn Drover (drums) and Chris Broderick (guitar) on tour in support of the group’s current CD Endgame, which has received some of the highest critical accolades of the band’s career.

"We'd like to thank James LoMenzo for several years of loyal service on the bass, and wish him the very best," Mustaine adds.

Amanda Bynes: Single Again?



The phrase “You win some, you lose some” seems to be how Amanda Bynes rolls.

The “What I Like About You” actress recently took to her Twitter to express some emotions, saying, “If something doesn’t work out with the guy I like, then I guess it just wasn’t meant to be! You can’t FORCE relationships/love. If it’s meant to be, it will be!”

Continuing on, the 23-year-old wrote, “Oh well! It was fun while it lasted. I’m over it. It’s a good thing I never said his name so I can pretend like it never happened! I will just block him out of my memory!”

And if you need love advice, take it from Amanda. “Love is like a puzzle. When ur in love, all the pieces fit but when ur heart gets broken, it takes a while to get everything back together.”

HBO picks up Kate Winslet Mildred Pierce mini series



Todd Haynes' "Mildred Pierce" is headed to HBO.

The cable network has picked up the five-hour miniseries starring Kate Winslet, which it will co-produce with MGM, Killer Films and John Wells Prods.

Haynes is directing the mini, an adaptation of James M. Cain's classic noir novel, which centers on Mildred Pierce Beragon (Winslet), a proud, single mother struggling to earn her daughter's love during the Great Depression in middle-class Los Angeles.

Haynes and Jon Raymond wrote the script for the project, which is being executive produced by Haynes, Pamela Koffler, Christine Vachon and John Wells. Ilene Landress serves as producer.

Casting for the other roles is under way, with production on the mini slated to begin in April in New York.

This marks the second major screen adaptation of Cain's novel.

The 1945 feature by Michael Curtiz earned Joan Crawford an Academy Award for the title role.

The Haynes/Winslet take on "Mildred Pierce" had been percolating for a month, with HBO considered the leading contender.

Winslet is hot coming off her Oscar win for "The Reader" last year.

Haynes' writing/directing credits include "I'm Not There" and "Far From Heaven."

Fox HBO, the green light for "Mildred Pierce" follows the critical success of another longform project toplined by feature stars, the movie "Grey Gardens," starring Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange.

Lindsay lohan celebrity hoarder parts 4 and 5

The final chapter of The Insider's coverage of "Lindsay Lohan: Secret Celebrity Hoarder" aired last night, with before and after shots of her once-cluttered home. Dina Lohan appeared to opine on the mess that professional organizer Linda Koopersmith cleaned.


As we saw in previous installments, Lindsay's condo was a veritable disaster area of designer shoes, clothes, accessories, toiletries and whatnot that filled her spare bedroom and media room, and spilled over to the rest of her home. Koopersmith essentially turned the guest room into a gigantic walk-in closet, with custom-built racks, shelves, and drawers that created floor-to-ceiling aisles of organized excess.

Alec Baldwin pal blames ex Kim Basinger for making hospital trip into media circus



Emmy-winning actor  Alec Baldwin's defenders blamed his ex, Kim Basinger, for ramping up the drama after an early morning 911 call by his daughter resulted in the "30 Rock" star being rushed to a Manhattan hospital.

"This is another example of Kim's sickness," a buddy of Baldwin's told The Daily News. "Alec came back from the hospital and there were cameras outside his house at 2 a.m. Gee, I wonder how they found out?"  Basinger, the buddy said, is jealous that Baldwin is co-hosting the Academy Awards next month and is using their daughter, Ireland, to rain on his parade.

"She's not not going to let that go by," the pal said.

There was no immediate response from Basinger's side, but her divorce from Baldwin has been a Hollywood horror show from the start and left their daughter torn between two parents who appear to hate each other. Baldwin was transported by a Lenox Hill Hospital ambulance crew to the hospital at 12:55 a.m. after 14-year-old Ireland told a dispatcher he was "unresponsive," sources said.

Ireland's call was logged in by dispatchers at 12:13 a.m. as a "possible drug overdose" and the paramedics were in Baldwin's pad just a minute later, records show.

"He got into an argument with his daughter, took an Ambien and had a bad reaction," a police source said. There was no indication that Baldwin was trying to kill himself, sources said.

"This was a misunderstanding on one person's part," the star's rep,Matthew Hadded in a statement. "Alec was quickly released from the hospital, he's completely fine and will be at work today."Baldwin's buddy said the actor "didn't need to go to the hospital, but he knew that if he didn't, it would create an incident."

"So he fully cooperated and went," the friend said. "They saw that he was totally fine and released him."


Earlier, Baldwin was spotted working out at 6 p.m. at the Equinox gym on Broadway and 92nd St. Dressed in black sweats, the actor was all business as he bore down hard on an exercise machine. "He looked very determined the whole time I saw him, eyes straight ahead," the observer said.

Baldwin and his daughter have had a rocky relationship, a fact that was revealed in spectacular fashion when a voicemail of the actor calling his spawn a "rude, thoughtless little pig" was made public in 2007.

Baldwin left the message when Ireland did not answer her phone during a court-appointed pre-arranged phone call. In the voicemail, Baldwin threatened to "straighten your little ass out" and declared "you have humiliated me for the last time."Baldwin also described Basinger as "a thoughtless pain in the ass."

He later blamed the bitter custody battle over Ireland with Basinger for the stress he felt when he left the voicemail message. He said the embarassment he suffered as a result led to suicidal thoughts.

"He felt that way right after it happened," Baldwin's friend said. "It was a horrible period. But there's been nothing like that since then. That was almost three years ago."

Some not-so-cliche picks for Riddler in Batman 3 (no Depp or Tennant!)

It seems that everybody is crossing their fingers that The Riddler will show up in the eventual sequel to "The Dark Knight."

While the villain's involvement in a third "Batman" film is far from confirmed — it's worth wondering who could play Edward Nigma should he wind up in Christopher Nolan's return to Gotham City.

Given Nolan's proclivity towards a darker, more realistic tone than his live-action "Batman" predecessors, it's important to steer clear of actors that would take a hammy, parody-riddled approach to The Riddler. This is a character that should have wit and humor, sure, but also pose a threat.

Collapse )


Jeremy Davies is my personal pick, but I don't think he could handle the celebrity that comes with being a major character in a Batman film. And Fassbender looks way too much like the goddamn Batman.
Though honestly, I think Nolan is going to go for more obscure villains.

Asia gets Avatar in 4D!



One important factor that can explain Avatar’s success at the box office is certainly the 3D experience viewers can have when they walk into the right movie theater. But what about watching Avatar in “4D”? In Korea, you can.

The nation’s leading multiplex chain, CJ-CGV, runs a handful of so-called “4D plexes” where the experience includes moving seats, laser lights or wind. In the case of Avatar, CJ-CGV uses a total of 30 different “real-life” effects to add some excitement to the movie.

The company’s PR representative is quoted as saying their 4D theaters are the only ones in the world offering a “five-sense experience” when watching a movie. One 4D ticket costs $15.80 (more than double the price of an average movie ticket in Korea).

Kourtney Kardashian Tastes Her Own Breast Milk

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Mother knows best?

Kourtney Kardashian -- who welcomed son Mason with beau Scott Disick last December -- has apparently sampled her own breast milk.

"Kourt just admitted that she tasted her own breast milk. Ummmm TMI," her sister Khloe Twittered Thursday.

Kerrie Conway, an international board-certified lactation consultant, tells UsMagazine.com "it's not dangerous" for women to drink their own breast milk.

"Breast milk has nutrients and anti-bodies that can help boost the immune system,"
she tells Us. (It remains to be seen whether consuming nutrients found in breast milk will improve the quality of a woman's breast milk down the line.)

But the practice is somewhat unusual, she says.

"Occasionally, I'll have a mom say, 'Hey, I tasted my breast milk.' It's not one of those things that's unheard of," Conway tells Us. "But it's not like in my professional career, I run across it daily."

Khloe, 25, says she is still getting used to her sister's breastfeeding ways.

"Wow my sister has changed," she previously Twittered. "She used to whip her boobs out for no reason. Now she does it to feed her child."

Miranda Cosgrove is Neutrogena’s Newest Face!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Following in the footsteps of fresh-faced stars like Gabrielle Union, Hayden Panettiere, Susie Castillo, Vanessa Hudgens, Jennifer Garner, Diane Lane and Emma Roberts, Miranda Cosgrove is the latest member of the Neutrogena family.

The 16-year-old recording artist and star of Nickelodeon’s iCarly has signed on as the beauty giant’s newest Brand Ambassador. “My friends and I have always loved the Neutrogena brand and their ability to help inspire confidence. So when I found out I was actually going to be part of the Neutrogena family I was really excited,” Cosgrove tells PEOPLE. “I have always looked up to many of the actresses who are already Neutrogena Ambassadors, and others are my peers, so it is an amazing honor for me to be part of this incredible group.”

So what exactly was it about this new face on the block that made her a perfect fit? “Miranda embodies the youthful and vibrant spirit that has always been part of the Neutrogena brand” says Jim Colleran, President of Neutrogena. “We are proud to have her as our newest ambassador.” Susan Sweet, General Manager, Neutrogena, adds “Her energy will be a wonderful addition to our 2010 partnerships and initiatives.”

Now a triple-threat, Cosgrove’s first ad for Neutrogena will break in early spring, as will her debut solo album, while the actress will voice a character in Universal’s new animated feature Despicable Me opposite Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig, opening in July.

Because you want to know: Jon Gosselin has a 3 inch penis






In a shocking new interview with Steppin Out magazine, Glassman, 23, goes into graphic, alleged detail about having sex with the 32 year-old father of eight. "He was so small I didn't think he would cheat on me," Glassman claims.

"He's hung like a nine-year-old boy," she snipes. "I'm serious. This is true," she adds, even claiming he measures up to "3 inches."

The angry ex-girlfriend surmises that "anybody who sleeps with him will notice. It's very noticeable. It's so tiny, tiny, tiny that I would laugh about it with my mom."

But Gosselin didn't think it was very funny at all. "He said, 'You know how subconscious [sic] I am of down there,'" Glassman recalls. She admits she wasn't very sensitive about the topic. "I would tell him to his face, 'I don't think you would cheat on me because you're so small.' I would tell him that all the time."

"Having sex with Jon was bittersweet," she snipes.

Tom Felton Says His Bond With Harry Potter In 'Deathly Hallows' Is 'Really Interesting'
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
It's hard to grasp the fact that, in a little more than a year, the "Harry Potter" film saga will finally be over. Sure, it will have taken four years since the release of J.K. Rowling's final "Harry Potter" novel for the final film to hit the screen, but it's still a bit of the magic that we'd like to have dragged out longer.  I agree so much!

Thanks to Universal Orlando's newest addition to Islands of Adventure, The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, the magic will be new and fresh for many years to come, but the ending of such an important story to modern pop culture is something to be mourned.


There is one actor from the film who isn't mourning the films ending: rather, Tom Felton is relishing in the changes his character Draco Malfoy is forced to face. Tom has been playing Harry Potter's classmate archnemesis for more than a decade, but finally the hateful dynamic between the two young wizards will become more complicated.

Hilary Duff Lunch With Mom+Review On 'Provinces of Night'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Enjoying mother/daughter time, Hilary Duff was out hangin’ with her mom, Susan, in Studio City, California on Thursday afternoon (February 11).

Keeping it casual in matching black Uggs, the Duff ladies strolled along before grabbing up a bite to eat at a local eatery.



This morning I saw Shane Dax Taylors Provinces of Night earlier this morning. Well, I was at the Metro to see Kathryn Bigelows Near Dark, actually, part of a retrospective on her work today, but it had apparently been moved to the Lobero and I was running late. I knew T Bone Burnett had worked on Provinces and knowing absolutely nothing of the narrative, I figured Id give it a go.

The film features a bizarre mish-mash of talent. Theres Val Kilmer, pot-bellied, stalking the frame with his hilarious Nashville get-up and constant buzz-verging-on-binge. Then theres Dwight Yokam, who shows up for a scene of trademark tension before disappearing from the plot for convenience?s sake.

Great character actor W. Earl Brown (who also wrote the film) offers an over-the-top but nevertheless intriguing performance as a, well, lunatic, while Kris Kristofferson lurks here and there with an easy chair turn as a returning patriarch in rural Tennessee.

Oh, and Barry Corbin (the cant stop whats coming gent from No Country for Old Men, for those who can?t remember WarGames or Northern Exposure) has a brief cameo thats positively hilarious. And Hilary Duff is front and center, too.

What can I say? Its an overreaching story of a family ruined by the events of a mysterious past and the one young man (Reece Thompson) who might make something of himself. The plot flies headlong off the rails after struggling to keep the ship righted throughout, but it also creates a definite sense of place and character that reminded me of the more accomplished That Evening Sun in some ways. I was invested in the story, however elementary it felt at times.

See it for Val Kilmer if nothing else. The guy will do just about anything these days, it seems.

-How was Duff in the film?

-I've been following her career since her post-Disney days, and I actually think she shows some great potential (particularly with her performance in the unfairly maligned War Inc)
She wasn't bad. The script gets in the way at times but she showed some talent, I thought.

Taylor Lautner leaving the gym after a birthday workout 2/11



Stepping out on his special day, Taylor Lautner was busy keeping up his buff look with a workout session on his 18th birthday in Los Angeles, California on Thursday (February 11).

The Jacob Black hunk hid behind a trainer as he left the local gym, hopping into a sporty new ride before driving out of paparazzi view.

Recently talking to Access Hollywood about his birthday agenda, the “Twilight” stud told, “I don’t like to do anything huge, but it is 18, so, it’s kind of a big one I guess.”

But, when asked what he has in store, the actor simply replied, “Absolutely nothing really. I mean, I’ll spend time with family and friends.”

Matt Lauer carries a torch for Vancouver's Olympics



A swarm of journalists chased after one of their own Thursday as NBC's Today Show host Matt Lauer carried the Olympic torch in Burnaby.
"This is going to sound so corny," said the American broadcaster after being dropped off at his starting point, "but they started playing some inspirational music on the bus and we all got quiet. There were a couple of people tearing up. We all went around the bus talking about our personal stories, and how we got here, and now I'm just one mass of butterflies."

Lauer ran 300 metres from Canada Way near Dundonald Avenue northwest to Woodsworth Street as part of the torch relay's 105th day.
"When the flame comes into the stadium tomorrow night and I'm broadcasting the opening ceremony, it's going to mean much more to me than it has in the past because I had a part of it," said Lauer.He received the torch from BCIT broadcast journalism student Alwena Shirley.
Friday — Day 106 — will be the final day of the torch relay. Notable torchbearers include actor and California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, Canadian cancer hero Terry Fox's father Rolly and Wayne Gretzky's father Walter

Still Feeling high from that Toy Story 3 trailer? Well, get ready to be disapointed

Upcoming Pixar Project "Newt" is canned.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
First, King of the Elves gets whacked. The computer-animated fantasy based on a short story by Philip K. Dick would have been released in 2012.

Then, in all the marketing-driven panic following Princess and the Frog’s lukewarm box office, Disney shelves the long-anticipated and traditionally animated The Snow Queen. Who’s up next on the hit list?

It looks like it’s newt.

Actually, I’ve been worried about this one for a long time. I’d heard a few things hinting at this, but nothing definitive enough that I’d be comfortable writing about it. Then, today in a comment thread on the Animation Guild Blog, Disney vet Floyd Norman stated that the film is dead.

newt was first announced in April of 2008 as part of Disney and Pixar’s ambitious new animation slate. It was to be directed by long-time sound engineer and guru Gary Rydstrom, from a script by Rydstrom and Leslie Caveny. Michael Giacchino was slated to write the score.

According to the press at the time, the film would have followed Newt and Brooke, the last remaining male and female blue-footed newts on the planet. Forced together by science to save their species, the only problem was that they can’t stand each other. According to the press release, “Newt and Brooke embark on a perilous, unpredictable adventure and discover that finding a mate never goes as planned, even when you only have one choice. Love, it turns out, is not a science.”

So, that’s out. But hey, at least we get Winnie-the-Pooh and Cars 2. Who wants to bet that newt’s summer 2012 release spot goes to another Pixar rehash, Monsters, Inc. 2?

UPDATE: I’ve had a couple of people tell me that King of the Elves has not actually been completely abandoned, but that it’s still in turnaround for retooling. I know this had been the fact at one point, but other informed sources have said that it’s no longer actively being worked on. If anyone can clarify this, drop me a line. In stranger news, I’ve had two sources independently hint to me that Cars 2 is actually having production problems, and I’ve seen that rumor posted anonymously today on the Animation Guild’s blog. Whispering campaign or fact, I don’t know, but it’s something to keep an eye out for.

Wasn't wetting my pants over this but it did look like it had potential. What the fuck though? This is cancelled but Cars 2 is still going? Ugh, my bb Russell is not amsued with this fuckery

6 Disastrous Ways Pop Culture Influences the Real World

Cinema and literature can change our lives in noble and profound ways. They can, but usually don't. For every Uncle Tom's Cabin that can take credit for a net benefit to the human race, you have a Jaws, which made a generation of Americans afraid to even climb into their swimming pools for fear a great white was hiding in there.

Think we're exaggerating? Trust us, some of Hollywood's effects on the world are far stupider than that.

Rihanna likes Korean food!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
World famous R&B singer Rihanna is currently in Korea for the first time since her debut and was recently interviewed. When asked what her favorite Korean food was, she responded, “Bean paste soup (된장찌개).”

On February 10th, Rihanna was on MBC FM’s ‘Successful Music Camp.’ On the show she also said, “I like Korean food like bulgogi (marinated barbecued beef).”

In addition to her radio show appearance, Rihanna held a press conference on the 11th for her new album ‘Rated R.’ She said, “Among all the albums I’ve made until now, this one is the most bare and faithful.”

It’s refreshing to see American pop stars in Korea. On another note, it’s amazing that Rihanna actually likes the bean paste soup, most Americans I know hate the smell – but little do they know it’s delicious.

Lauren Conrad keeps pimping her Sweet Little Lies. Audrina’s friends think she’s stupid

Marcia Brady Lauren Conrad hit up Coral Gables Florida for another stop on her book tour promoting her new novel Sweet Little Lies.



Collapse )



Meanwhile, Audrina Patridge was tipped off, presumably by pals, that a character in Lauren Conrad’s LA Candy book series was based on her. She discussed it in a recent interview with AskMen.

I also read, in terms of acting, that it’s possible that you will be starring in a film version of L.A. Candy [a novel based on The Hills by Lauren Conrad]. Do you know anything about that?

I haven’t even read the book. I am not going to star in it, and I’m not even going to be in it. I haven’t read the book at all. I have heard that Lauren based it off of us girls from the previous season. I heard how she portrayed my character, and it isn’t like me at all. She kind of made me sound really ditsy and stupid. So yeah, I don’t think so. I’ll pass on that.



Problem is the only similarity between Audrina and the character in question, “Gaby” is that they are both brunettes and both very stupid.

“Gaby” is a hot brunette who works at a PR firm. Her character is described as not being the sharpest crayon in the box. She is so dumb she micro-waved a pair of true religion jeans because the dryer wasn’t working.

Audrina is a passable ceiling-eyed brunette who had a fake job with Epic records and has been described as vacant and blank. She is so dumb she stayed with a guy named Justin Bobby for more than 4 years.

Lesson to be learned? If your friends decide that the stupidest character in a fictional book must be based on you it may be time to reevaluate your relationships—or get an education.

Body Found Where Christian Bale Lived


Christian Bale lived in a home where a human body was buried ... and he had no idea, cops tell TMZ.

We've learned in 2008 while Bale was filming "Terminator: Salvation" in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the body of Michael Snyder lay in the front yard of the home he was renting.

Snyder had been missing for 8 years ... buried at the home the entire time. The body was discovered last week after cops received a tip. Snyder's ex-wife has been arrested and charged with murder.

Bale obviously had no idea the body was in the yard.

Star Trek And Recent Summer Block Busters Deliver Huge Profits For Viacom



Hosted by imgur.com


Viacom said on Thursday that DVD and Blu-Ray disc sales from “Star Trek,” “Transformers 2” and “G.I. Joe” helped trigger a huge boost in fourth quarter profit.The company reported a net profit of $694 million during the period, compared with $173 million in 2008. Overall, revenue fell 3 percent to $4.1 billion, including a 1 percent decline in its filmed entertainment division. The revenue slide was mainly to slumping sales of “Rock Band.” Revenue at Viacom’s media division fell more than 6 percent. But cost-cutting and a strong performance in its home entertainment division – a.k.a DVDs – helped offset the continued decline in the advertising market.

Viacom said its advertising revenues fell 3 percent overall, 4 percent in the U.S. For the quarter, Viacom’s filmed enterainment revenues declined 1 percent to $1.79 billion, including a 73 percent slide in theatrical revenues (which the company attributed to a “difficult comparison with the number and mix of films” released the same time last year). For the year, however, profit at Viacom’s filmed entertainment group grew to $236 million from $88 million in 2008. “Paranormal Activity” also helped boost Viacom’s operating incoming 24 percent during the fourth quarter, the company said. Sumner Redstone, Viacom’s chairman, said that "despite the economic challenges, we performed extremely well across our media networks and motion picture operations." Philippe Dauman, Viacom's president and chief executive, praised Paramount Pictures for boosting profitability as “the studio's strategy of producing a smaller slate of films, anchored by franchises, began to pick up momentum." Dauman said the company is pleased about a "strong" 2010 slate of films, including the upcoming premiere of Martin Scorsese's "Shutter Island." Viacom joined News Corp., Time Warner and Disney in reporting strong fiscal results -- a hopeful sign for the battered media business.

Zoe Saldana on Vanity Fair controversy -"it's only a matter of time"


Vanity Fair drew some flack last week for its lack of diversity on the cover of their annual Hollywood issue with many wondering why actresses like Zoe Saldana or Gabourey Sidibe failed to make the cut. Access Hollywood caught up with the “Avatar” star on Tuesday night and the actress weighed in on the uproar.

“I feel like we can spend a lot of time bashing our beautiful country, but we don’t give it enough credit,” Zoe told Access at the Cinema Society and HBO screening of HBO’s “How To Make It In America” in New York City.

The actress explained that though the magazine might not be the best representation of Hollywood, she’s hopeful the media will catch up with the reality of what constitutes the fabric of the country.

“Our pace might be a little slow and it might not be on par to how we, as American civilians, would like it to be, but it is still an amazing country,” Zoe continued. “So, when I look at magazines like Vanity Fair and Vogue, I know that it’s just a matter of time, the same way Obama took his time and he got to office and became President… it’s just a matter of time until magazines, the media, our art, our culture, our colloquial lifestyle, tags along to our today reality.”

Zoe said despite our cultural shortcomings, she’s proud to call America home.

“I’m a first generation American,” she explained. “I was taught by my mother, who was an immigrant, to be very grateful to this country. It is no different than when you have a dysfunctional family – it can be very dysfunctional –but it is still your family… and America is still ours. I think we can waste a lot time throwing it down the drain and not knowing the amazing things about this country.”

Marty on Shutter Island

(This is a week old, but I Googled & checked tags and didn't see it posted...)


MARTIN SCORSESE’S dark, twisty detective thriller “Shutter Island” is set in 1954, in the full flowering of what W. H. Auden had, just a few years earlier, called the Age of Anxiety. “I don’t know, maybe I’m stuck in that time,” Mr. Scorsese said recently, sounding a little weary as he talked about a film that “started out as an entertainment, though I guess I don’t really know how to do that,” he said. “It always seems to become something else.”

Gwen Stefani Brings Zuma to Her L.A.M.B. Show February 11th



Showing off her latest looks, Gwen Stefani hit the catwalk for the L.A.M.B Fall 2010 Fashion Presentation during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City on Thursday (February 11).

The opening-day runway display was held at Milk Studios, with Miss Stefani posing alongside her models before heading backstage to join back up with her youngest son, Zuma Rossdale.

Meanwhile, Miss Stefani took a moment to offer her condolences/remembrance of late designer, Alexander McQueen, who just recently tragically passed away.

Gwen tells, “To me, from my perspective, he was a genius. I never got to meet him, I never got to go to any of his shows. . . He’s given me a few pieces that I wore one time to the Grammys, and these leather boots that come up to here [mid-thigh]. I have a couple pieces of his, he was so generous. It’s so devastating, I think people are going to feel it for a long time. It’s devastating.”

NPR interviews Sharukh Khan for My Name Is Khan

HIS NAME IS KHAN (AND IT'S ONE YOU MIGHT KNOW)

He's the biggest movie star in the world. Because even if you never heard of Shah Rukh Khan, a billion people in India — and more across the Middle East, Africa and beyond — certainly have. He's the biggest draw in the outrageously oversized films that come from the Hindi-film industry often called Bollywood.
How big a draw is that? More people around the world watch Shah Rukh Khan than Meryl Streep or Brad Pitt. Maybe Meryl Streep and Brad Pitt.
"In India, the films are not looked upon just as entertainment," Khan says. "They're a way of life."
And Shah Rukh Khan has made them his life. At age 44, he owns a production company and is host of India's version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. And he keeps starring in Bollywood productions — films that get shown everywhere from remote Indian villages to multiplexes in New York.
In some ways, that broad distribution requires a certain style of filmmaking.
"The idea is that you have to some way make a film that appeals to my 90-year-old grandmother and to the 9-year-old kid," Khan says. "So it's like a cabaret. Like, I have a couple of films written by American guys, and I bring them back to Mumbai, make them sit down. And then I say: 'OK, here's the song, and here's the mother.' 'But there's no mother in the film.' And I say, 'There has to be a mother in the film.' "
In movies that commonly last three hours, Khan might howl his lines, with his hair flying everywhere. He may dance on the roof of a moving train. It comes with the territory.
"People talk about Bollywood being very kitsch," he acknowledges, "and just songs and dances, and over the top and colorful."
But in his latest production, being released in the U.S. Feb. 12, he's not doing anything quite that over the top. He plays a Muslim man with Asperger's syndrome who is driven after the events of Sept. 11 to constantly repeat a single explosive phrase:
"My name is Khan, and I'm not a terrorist."

Lafayette's Lover Speaks!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Yesterday we brought you Kevin Alejandro's thoughts on his cop series, "Southland," which is currently airing on TNT after getting a premature axe from NBC before its second season even aired. Today, we have something even juicier — 411 on Kevin's new gig as a hospital worker named Jesus on HBO's "True Blood." Unfortunately, he couldn't spill many actual details about what, exactly, his role entails (they're pretty tight-lipped over at "True Blood" headquarters), but he tried his hardest to give us the scoop on his character, who just so happens to be Lafayette's (Nelsan Ellis) new love interest.

Courtney Love: What's in Your Wallet?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


The administrator for the trust of Courtney Love's daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, wants to know how Courtney may have spent Francis Bean's money.

TMZ has obtained legal docs filed in connection with the Frances Bean Cobain Irrevocable Trust. The co-trustee -- Laird Norton Tyee Trust Company -- filed legal papers today in L.A. County Superior Court, asking an L.A. judge for a subpoena to produce documents.

Sources tell TMZ among the documents Laird wants to inspect -- receipts, checks and other items to determine if Courtney may have misappropriated money that was earmarked for Frances Bean. Until December, Courtney had control over some of Frances Bean's financial affairs. But on December 11, an L.A. County Superior Court judge stripped Courtney of parental and financial control.

The trust was established in Frances Bean's behalf in Seattle Washington where her dad, Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain, died.

No immediate comment from Courtney's camp.

Angelina Jolie arrives at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Thursday (February 11) after a trip to Haiti.

The 34-year-old actress was greeted by a bodyguard as she left the terminal at the airport.

While spending time in Haiti as a goodwill ambassador for the UN, Angelina met with President Rene Preval “about challenges confronting the country since the disaster,” according to the UKPA, and visited a camp for Haitians who’d lost their homes.

Because 2D Is No Longer Good Enough


Image and video hosting by TinyPic 
Sports broadcasting will enter a new dimension in 2010 ... the third dimension, as ESPN will unveil the industry's first 3-D network.

ESPN 3D will showcase a minimum of 85 live sporting events during its first year, beginning June 11 with the first 2010 FIFA World Cup match, featuring South Africa versus Mexico,
ESPN and ABC Sports president George Bodenheimer announced.

Other events to be produced in 3-D include the 2011 BCS National Championship Game, college basketball and football contests, up to 25 World Cup matches and the Summer X Games. Additional events will be announced at a later date.

"ESPN's commitment to 3-D is a win for fans and our business partners," Bodenheimer said in a statement. "ESPN 3D marries great content with new technology to enhance the fan's viewing experience and puts ESPN at the forefront of the next big advance for TV viewing."

ESPN has been testing ESPN 3D for more than two years, even showing a USC-Ohio State college football game in select theaters and to 6,000 fans at the Galen Center on USC's campus.

"This is a turning point for 3-D," Consumer Electronics Association CEO Gary Shapiro told USA Today.
HERE WE GO ALLE ALLE ALLE
ESPN will be airing all the football/futbol/soccer matches Live so my ass will be up at 3 or 4 am watching these games.
I'm not a fan of the whole 3D craze but ngl watching the World Cup in 3D seems awesome.

Imagine seeing this in 3D? EPIC!
