The Comeback is fantabulous. Lisa Kudrow pretty much plays herself and fumbles her way through an improvised faux-reality show. You MUST watch it. if you have HBO, I mean. Suddenly all these shows are gaining success based on awkward moments and characters (Reno 911, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Office, Ft Actress, etc.). Not that I am complaining.
Drop everything you are doing. Walk directly to the theater and see Murderball. Well, it's only playing in New York and LA, so maybe not all of you can do this. It's a documentary the way documentaries should be done (hear that Michael Moore?) It's more than just about the sport, it actually documents quadrapalegic individuals without pitying them, and is actually quite funny. Love the coach's orchestra geek son.
Newsflash! Scandal rocks Middletown, CT! A sculpute installation was put in the lawn of the local senior center. However, the sculptures just happen to be anatomically correct men and boys frolicking with one another. The seniors are going apeshit over them. Some even covered them with a towel. I think it is fucking hilarious.

Speaking of men frolicking (my favorite topic, duh), I can't stop looking at this. Maybe it's the obscene amount of time someone spent shotoshopping it. I just can't stop watching it! Waiy, yes I can. I can do without a certain Orlando Bloom. What a shitty whiny guy. Example A: Troy. His character was a spineless piece of crap, and for some reason I think he wasn't acting. Not that the movie was a stellar piece of work. I wonder of Brad Pitt cringes everytime he sees clips of himself emoting in the movie. "HECTOR! HECTOR! HECTOR! HECTOR!" That movie was totally manipulating. I was waiting to see the Trojan horse, and the motherfuckers put it in 10 minutes before the end.
Michael Cunningham's new book, Specimen Days is very good, but so not what I was expecting after the tearjerker Home At the End of the World. An army of kids raised to be terrorists? A futurstic anamatronic hustler on the run with lizard from another planet? He's beein hanging out with Chuck a little too much, methinks.
I don't mean to sound like an old ninny-pinny (I don't know what that means), but when did looking like a complete slut come back? Ladies, jusr because it is summer, I don't need to stare at your navels. And memo to everyone: summer does not mean you can go braless either. There's a little something called "leaving something to the imagination". I can't quite explain it, but this year seems to be worst than the last. And sequins? Only where one thing with sequins on it, tops, or you look like you should be in a first grade dance recital. Oh, and while we are on it, those "moroccan" style belts, you know, the ones that look like a lot of discs attached to each other, are FUGLY! If you were actually in Morocco wearing one over your low slung skirt and slutty tube top, you'd be stoned to death. While I'm on a role, if you are going to wear flip-flops in public (which just….ew), PLEASE for the love of god, learn how to walk in them. Don't drag your feet everywhere. And that's my fashion advice for now.
