Poster Boy(s)

Like an emotional high schooler's performance art piece, Spider-Man externalizes his inner duality with two elaborate colorful costumes in the new poster for Spider-Man 3.

Blue-and-red Spidey likes smiles, punctuality, and watching an hour-and-a-half block of Everybody Loves Raymond from 6 to 7:30 each night. Black suit Spidey likes listening to My Chemical Romance albums, looking down when photographed, and completing MySpace surveys with ironic answers. Which speaks to you? See the movie and find out!

Battle Of Nitwits

According to a family friend, Britney Spears is "seriously thinking about" giving away a digitally re-mastered copy of her sex tape for free so Kevin Federline can't make any money off of it.

" "Brit figures she'll beat that sucker to the punch, just like she did by giving away pictures of Jayden James," said Spears family friend Nyla Price, 55, the owner of Nyla's Burger Basket. "Half of nuthin' is nuthin', and that's what her lying skunk of a husband will get if she gives that video away before he can find some sleazeball to buy it." Federline has been saying the sex tape is four hours long, however, Price says the tape is closer to forty-five minutes."

This is like a battle of wits between Britney Spears and Kevin Federline to see who can screw each other over the most. I'd compare it to an intricate game of chess but it's really more like a pig wrestling contest.

Fickle Fantasy Football Fates. Figures.

Yeah, that went about as well as I expected.

Won one; lost three. What did I tell you about the fantasy football fates? That's right: they're fickle. And you want a little piece of advice? When you go head-to-head with your wife in fantasy football? Lose. Lose in a hurry... unless you like losing 75% of your games, that is.

At least I won in the office Yahoo league.

The other bit of good news here is that I clinched a playoff berth. I don't think that's ever happened before. Kinda' cool. I should also take this opportunity to explain the "no haiku" rule in the Yahoo league. See, I started submitting haiku to the league message board 'round about week two. Turns out there's only one other fan of haiku in the league (that'd be Robert, he of the "HaikuNaziKillers"), but nevertheless we've been posting haiku for weeks now, despite the slings and arrows we've suffered. I don't know if the others in the league are insecure in their masculinity, or too stupid to figure out the 5-7-5 rule, but what I do know is they're a buncha' haiku hating babies... which eventually lead to the commissioner's "no haiku" rule. More than a rule, he made it plain that anyone submitting haiku risked season-ending injury to their quarterback. I laughed. I pooh-poohed... until Sunday.

Did I mention I lost in the "everyone" league?

Did I mention my quarterback got one measley point? Did I mention his name? Donovan McNabb. Donovan -"Torn ACL, out for the year"- McNabb. I'd write a haiku about it if I wasn't so busy scrambling for another quarterback. If there's a silver lining it's that I'm still in second place in the division... but my point total sucks, so the playoffs are likely out of reach. Dammit.

The solo league? Lost.

Finally, in my league with Nancy. The league I scratched out the win over Nancy just last week?Yup. Lost. I'm told it serves me right. You make the call.

Still #1. That's cool. I did the math though, and if I do nothing but lose, and one or the other of the two teams closest to me in my division does nothing but win, I'll likely miss the playoffs. I'd be the Indianapolis Colts of the league. I'm hoping for better than that. Hoping, mind you, despite that Donovan McNabb was my quarterback here too... dammit.

Ironically, his name is five syllables long.

You Know, For Kids

"Oh my God! They're turkeys!"

You Know, For Dogs

Turkey Cookies for Dogs


2 cups of whole-wheat flour

2 jars of turkey flavored baby food

½ cup of chicken broth

Place the oven rack in the center of the oven and pre heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Place 1 slightly greased baking sheet on the side.

Use a large bowl and a wire whisk to mix the whole-wheat flour and the turkey flavored baby food together. Continue mixing until it acquires a soft dough consistency. If it looks like the dough mixture is a little too dry just add in a little bit more chicken broth. Continue mixing it until the dough pulls away from the bowl it is in.

Break off small pieces from the dough and form them into little marble size balls. Roll them in between your floured hands. Then place them over the baking sheet and press them down onto it with a fork leaving them around ¼ inch thick.

Bake for around 18 to 20 minutes or until the cookies have acquired a golden brown color and look dry. Then remove them from the oven and place the tray over a rack and allow the cookies to cool completely. Turn the oven off.

Once the cookies have cooled, put them back inside the warm oven and allow them to sit in there undisturbed without opening the oven door for 10 to 15 hours straight.

Blah, blah, blah. "Tomkat got married." When did the fake spaceship land? How long was the laser light show? How did they excise that baby from Tom's chest? Was anyone ever able to stop John Travolta from smirking into a plastic stein? The media has truly abandoned us.

Four And Oh. Oh Dear.

I am mighty!

Four games, and I won them all!

Am I pleased? Sure... but wary, 'cause the football fates are fickle, and even though I'd argue that I was due, they'd most likely disagree, and would probably feel the need to humble me. That, and the fact that one of the games I won was against my beloved wife... on our anniversary weekend. Yeah... next week's games may not go so well.

But in the menatime, back to the basking! In the office Yahoo league? I won!

Still stalled in 5th, but in the hunt for second! The dreaded "San Diego Zoo" has a lock on 1st (as usual) and has secured a berth in the playoffs already (as usual). I don't know how that guy does it every year, but every year he dominates like... like... like a person who's good at dominating things. It'd piss me off if I wasn't so impressed.

In the solo league? Chalk up a "W!"

The only way I'll make the playoffs here is if I get back into 1st place in my division. I coulda' done it if "Cowboys" had cooperated and lost. Bastard. I'd like to say I could do it next week... but those fickle football fates do have some say in matters, remember....

In the league in which we're all battling it out? Yup! Another win! For me the good news was I won, and Joe and Nancy lost. That put me back in 2nd in the division. No one is gonna' catch that @^*# "Cannonball," but if I can hold on to 2nd I could make the playoffs... maybe. Actually, at this point Tony has the best shot at that Wild card spot. And Robert? I dunno' what happened to him. Even I beat him in this league... he's still a juggernaut in the Yahoo league, but here, not so much.

Hopefully. Hear me, football fates? Hear the humbleness in my voice? Can I get you a drink, football fates? Run to Blockbuster for you? You just let me know... I'll be here... all humble and junk.

Isn't That Just Like A Moonraker?

In celebration of the release of Casino Royale this Friday, our fellow denizens of the internet have provided the introduction sequences of every Bond film to date. Watching them all gives you a real sense of how, no matter how much the film quality, effects or actors may have changed from film to film, one thing has remained constant: the exploitation of women as purely sexual objects.

Star's Her Desperation

Star Jones showed up at the Dancing With The Stars afterparty looking like, uh, well, this.

I can't even look at it. She's like those leather-skinned creatures in Beastmaster who'd leap up behind some hapless traveller in the plain, wrap their leathery wings around him, and leech him dry... leaving the bones, of course. Maybe for a snack for an amusing ferret who'd surely pilfer a key sooner or later.

Just make sure you remember what this looks like, because if the devil were to ever take human form this is it right here.

Federline In The Sand

First Britney stuns us with her ironclad prenup, now this? In the smartest -and sleaziest- move yet, Kevin Federline is using his alleged 4-hour sex tape with Britney Spears to leverage custody of their kids... oh, and of $30 million. He's already been offered $50 million by companies wanting to distribute it on the web, but says he'd sell it back to Britney for a mere $30 million and custody of their two kids. A source close (but not too close... that'd be icky) to K-Fed says:

"At the time the two of them were in the honeymoon stages of the relationship and couldn't keep their hands off each other. They did nothing all day but have sex - and play the odd game of chess. They were insatiable and they believed they would be together forever. Britney didn't think twice about making the video at the time. She mistakenly believed that their love would last. They adored filming each other. They lived their lives in front of the cameras - even making a short-lived reality TV show of their exploits. Sex was no different to them, it seems. Now this video could prove very costly to her. Millions of people will be prepared to pay to watch. Kevin has told Britney she should comply with his demands otherwise the whole world will see her having sex, which will be devastating. At the moment Kev is in talks with a company in Arizona about putting the four-hour sex vid online. If it all goes to plan he'll make [$50 million] from it."

If Britney doesn't cave and hand over the children I'm sure a judge will. Because when you see a man of such moral character and integrity as Kevin Federline there's no way you can deny him the privilege of raising children.

Monday, November 13, 2006

The Smoking Gun got their hands on a copy of Kevin Federline's backstage demands, my friends!

Included are a bottle of Jack Daniel's, a bottle of Grey Goose, six bottles of specifically non-Evian water, a tray of gourmet cheeses, and a bunch of other crap he has no right to ask for. He had to give away tickets to his last concert, meaning he's got about as much star power as the assistant manager of an IHOP. The only thing that should be on this list is "Nobody hiding in my room to beat me up" and maybe - maybe - "A place to sit that isn't covered with shards of lemon-soaked glass."

Still Crazy After All These Years

So there sat David Lynch with a real cow and a fake lawn chair at the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and La Brea in Hollywood... ostensibly to pimp Laura Dern's performance for an Oscar in his new film, Inland Empire. We all would have missed it, but luckily these two douche bags were on the scene hamming it up, pretending they were discovering it for the first time.

So why the cow? "Without cheese," a sign reads, "there would be no Inland Empire." The director later clarified, "Cheese is made from milk. You get it?" Honestly, has anyone ever gotten it?

Rock? Meet The Hard Place.

You know, they say the flip-flop is bad, but this week? I flip-flopped, my friends... and I couldn't be happier. That's right, I went 3-1 this week! Was it the puppies, or Javon Walker's improbable reverse? We may never know... but what we know is... that's right, I won three times as many games as I lost. Which is okay by me.

In the office Yahoo league? Sadly, that was my only loss. Thing is, I played Robert, and I've never, ever beaten him in a fantasy game, so my hopes weren't exactly high. At least after the loss I only dropped to fifth. Lookee:

1. San Diego Zoo 9-0-0
2. The Dirty Jedi's 8-1-0

It's interesting that this is the league I had the lowest hopes for, yet I'm 7-2 so far. I know nothing about fantasy football.

In the "All Together Now" league? I won! Oddly and improbably enough, I beat Robert! Stranger things have never happened! Check it out:

Luckily, I won... and even more luckily -for me anyway- most everyone else in my division lost, so I found myself in second place again! Sorry Nancy, sorry Joe... I just like second place much more than last is all.

Over in the solo league? I won! First win in almost ever! No one was more surprised than me... except for the poor bastard I defeated, I'm guessing. See?

Last but by no means least, the league in which Nancy and I are battling it out? I won! What's the phrase? "Yahoo!"

At this point I'm mostly watching "FesturingTaserWound" and "Pigs" since they're the closest to me in wins/points. The good news is I'm way ahead in my own division... but the bad news is this week I play Nancy. That can be dicey enough (not just because one of us hates to lose Nancy Depper) on any given Sunday... but this weekend it's particularly interesting 'cause it's our 5-year wedding anniversary, and I'm pretty sure it's my husbandly duty to lose. Sure, I could roll over, but Nancy hates that almost as much... which is why we so rarely play Stratego. I guess what I'm saying is no matter what, I'm hosed... but I have learned that if you have to be hosed, it's better to be a hosed winner than a hosed loser... well, as long as you enjoy sleeping on the couch.

File Under Scrutiny

Britney Spears filed for divorce with K-Fed recently, citing "irreconcilable differences" and asking for both legal and physical custody of their two children. She did note that K-Fed should get get "reasonable visitation rights." She's cool like that. As for money, the two have already signed a prenup, although Britney is waiving her right to spousal support. She's also asking the judge to make each party pay their own attorney's fees, which means when they show up in court Britney is gonna have her expensive celebrity lawyer and K-Fed is gonna be accompanied by a sock puppet named "Mr. Hand."

But wait! The news just gets better and better! It seems K-Fed was told about the divorce over a text message while he was shooting an episode of Exposed. Much News has footage of him getting the text message, and he apparently removed his mic and was gone for 30 minutes before returning to finish shooting the episode. Which is slightly better than the reaction I would've expected: repeatedly yelling "Now I have to move back into the dumpster!" while sobbing uncontrollably.

Oh, but the hits just keep on comin': Because he had a pathetic 20% turnout in New York last weekend, K-Fed dropped the price of tickets to his performance at the House of Blues in Chicago yesterday to a whopping $0.00. That's zero. As in he gave his tickets away for free. I'd joke that soon he'll be paying people to see him perform, but the thought of him with any money after Britney divorces him is too ridiculous to even joke about.

I swear to regis, if we still remember who this guy is in 6 months it'll be a testament to how far we've fallen as a society.

I Am Jack's Mid-Season Reboot

1 win. 3 losses.

Okay, so here's what we've learned after 8 weeks of football:

1) We don't say things like "I'm counting on Donovan McNabb to have a big day."
2) Pictures of Joe Montana and Dwight Clark do not channel greatness our way.
3) It's almost always better to start that other defense. Trust me on this.

So, we're making some changes, my friends. No more Fight Club references. No more Joe Montana portraits. No more call-outs to specific players who only tank the next day. Nope. It's all puppies and oblique pop culture references from now on. You gotta' do what you've gotta' do to make the playoffs.

So, my one win? It was huge. I beat one of the undefeated teams in the office Yahoo league! Jumped all the way to third place! Check it out:

1. San Diego Zoo 8-0-0
2. Cincinnati Steamers 7-1-0
3. Tropical Depressions 7-1-0
4. AllStar Chuck Norris 6-2-0
5. Go Frenchy!! 6-2-0

20. Pig Skins & Beer 0-8-0

Of all of the games this week, this was the one I wanted/needed most to win, so at least there's that this 1/3 week.

Meanwhile, in the league we all share? I lost.So did Nancy. So did Joe. So we're all still tied, and I'm still last in the division.

My next game here is against Robert. I'd say something about it, but I'm afraid of tempting the football fates. You understand.

The solo league? What's that thing that's not winning? Oh yeah! I lost.

I'm still #1 in the whole league, but people are gaining on me with each game I lose. Nancy, meanwhile, is climbing steadily... kinda' exciting, isn't it?

I play Robert in two games on Sunday, and we share a quarterback between them. That's awkward. We also share a love for haiku... but that's a whole 'nother Opra show....

4 leagues? Rule them all!
And in the darkness find them.
4 leagues? One binds them.

Stringing Him Along

No surprise to anyone, Madonna's rep confirms she's already started making David Banda wear the red Kabbalah string bracelet which, according to Kabbalah literature, fends off "the unfriendly stare and unkind glances we sometimes get from people around us."

If Madonna really wants to fend off unkind looks from strangers she's gonna need a hell of a lot more than a red bracelet. Like a blanket printed with puppies she can throw over herself whenever she goes out in public. Then whenever people are giving her angry looks she can just hide under the blanket and everybody will be like "Aww, puppies" and forget why they were reaching into their pockets for a stabbing knife.

Return Policy

From the 1994 Contract For America:

"This year's election offers the chance, after four decades of one-party control, to bring to the House a new majority that will transform the way Congress works. That historic change would be the end of government that is too big, too intrusive, and too easy with the public's money. It can be the beginning of a Congress that respects the values and shares the faith of the American family.

Like Lincoln, our first Republican president, we intend to act "with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right." To restore accountability to Congress. To end its cycle of scandal and disgrace. To make us all proud again of the way free people govern themselves."

The Heritage Foundation :
"Decades from now, historians quite likely will reflect back upon the Contract With America as one of the most significant developments in the political history of the United States. As Newt Gingrich, the first Republican Speaker of the House of Representatives in 40 years, has written: "there is no comparable congressional document in our two-hundred-year history."

The Contract itself emerged publicly with the staging of the mass signing of the Contract on the steps of the U.S. Capitol by 367 candidates for office on September 27, 1994. On that day, all of these candidates publicly pledged: "If we break this Contract, throw us out."
