Question of the Day

Is Jaycee Dugard really just a lost Duggar child? Suspicious clues:
  • Dugard/Duggar similarity
  • Jaycee upholds the Duggar 'J' name tradition
Michelle and Jim Bob just brought home their 19th child, so they could've lost track of a random one, right?

The Reviews Are In

Christina Aguilera has a new single and this review this is the only one that matters, really:
"Your cousins (and for some of you, your abuelitas) have a new favorite song to twerk their chochas to at the family barbecue. Or if your cousins are like my cousins, they will blast this mess from their '87 Toyota Tercel while dropping their snatch to the ground in the parking lot of a Del Taco. Blame Xtina for hollering about doing ho shit in her new song."

Is Nothing Sacred?!

Following the recent and slightly devastating news that Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins split, I just read that Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy called it quits as well- so sad! They were one of my fave wacky celeb couples that aired out their issues to anyone listening (see twitter, Oprah, and the small library McCarthy has penned).
I am now living in fear Oprah and Gayle are next but a source close to me (i.e. my co-worker, Kyle) predicts Brangelina, which sounds pretty spot on from the tabloid headlines. Thoughts/predictions?

Words to Live By

"For the record, being 30 is totally f'ed. The battle between girl and woman is Ridley Scott level intense. Can't wait to be 31."

-Mindy Kaling on Twitter

(Thus ends my blogger block. McRib is back!)

Question of the Day

When having an extramarital affair, why not be super conscientious about using some form of birth control? Does that reckless behavior go hand-in-hand with having said affair? Discuss.

Even If You Hate Dane Cook...

This video is day-making because Dane says what everyone is thinking: Vanessa Hudgens had her SECOND (yes, there has already been one) "leaked" naked photo. Seriously, stop it.

Delicate Flower?

The New York Times has kindly put out a public warning to Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor that her new job is going to be real hard, y'all. Thanks for looking out for the ladies!

Hillary is p-i-s-e-d!

They have rent-a-shoes! And rent-a-foot disease!

I'm quite surprised how saddened I am over the death of John Hughes. I didn't know much about the writer-director, but his work filled my childhood. In his heyday, I was too young to relate to the 80's high school scene, some of his other movies are my all-time favorites: Uncle Buck, Home Alone, Planes, Trains & Automobiles (just to name a few). My co-worker sent me this amazing tribute that sums up Hughes as a person and the relationship he had with his audience: it shines a bright light on why he was so damn good at his job. *This post title was lifted from Uncle Buck. Still quotable, after all these years.

Racial Tension Headache

Did people expect Obama to wear baggier or saggier (are those even real words?) jeans because he's black? The Today Show got to the bottom of it with some hard-hitting journalism!

In Defense of Jimmy Fallon

Criticism comes far too easily to the newest Late Night host. I know, he was the giggly one during his Saturday Night Live tenure, but I'm making my case for Jimmy and his Late Show starting now:
  • Jimmy is young- a mere 34 years old! Reflecting this advantage, recurring segments include playing beer pong with celebrity guests (even Betty White partook), his unrelenting quest for a Saved by the Bell cast reunion (see Mark-Paul Gosselaar's recent appearance) and his "Intense" segments (Will Ferrell's was comedy gold, as expected). Jimmy's comedic point of view is far more youthful than anything in late night (Conan still rocks, but I'm guessing he will be forced to chuck some of his previous Late Show schtick to uphold the Tonight Show mainstream standard).
  • Two words: The Roots. You might think this was sell-outy of the band, but by Jimmy losing the generic, Bar-Mitzvah party vibe other late night bands bring (no matter how great they were pre-network gigs), it ups Jimmy's cool factor and also pulls in some sweet musical guests (as outlined in this article, which inspired the post you're reading).
  • Jimmy has love for the game. He grew up a die-hard SNL fan (it's a wiki link, but it's true!) and worked his way from fan to cast member to co-anchor of Weekend Update. For anyone who has idolized a performer, in any artistic capacity, you have to give him credit (in other words, I'm insanely jealous).
Stop the Jimmy hate, it's so 2000 and late.

Lowered Expectations

Ash Simps really knew what she was talking about with her song Shadow: Michael Jordan's son, Jeffrey, quit the Illinois basketball team. Seriously, that must have been an insane amount of pressure and expectation.

My Top 5

Unlike Ross Geller's, this list is not laminated, so it is subject to revision. In no particular order:

1) Clooney (even though he's better than a list)

2) Josh Jackson

3) Matthew Fox

4) Naveen Andrews

5) Andy Samberg

Oldies but goodies (i.e., possible alternates): Omar Epps, Malcolm Jamal Warner. One or both may be bumped up once Lost ends.
