after you get tired of watching grainy videos in languages you don't understand listen to what our president thinks of kate's plight. (via gawker) A sample of W.'s opinion of the matter...Some asshole took a picture/of Kate Moss doing lines,/And now she’s being victimized/ for imaginary crimes. so true.
More anime celebrities at Worth 1000 (via BWE blog)...if you like being scared and stuff. yeah, definitely check out anime Tom Cruise if you're into really ugly/crazy/brainwashed(?) stuff.
Not that I'm suddenly going to break down and start liking Ms. Perfect-blonde-fake english-fashion snob Paltrow but she looks totally gorgeous in the October Vogue (you can see some pics and the whole article online)....although I kind of secretly like her...she's so perfect!
Not that I'm totally converted: not that into her little headdress-y thing on the front cover Plus, does Vogue always have to completely worship her like they do in this article? I'm annoyed by that. And if someone has to worship her, I'd rather it be Plum Sykes...she's a tad more interesting, plus we get a bit more of a look at Gwynnie's less than perfect smarmy/stuck up/spence grad traits.
...unfortunately I don't exactly have tons of money to spend on prada stockings lying around and I'm not sure this is something you could pull off without the security of a brand name...or maybe the annoying confidence of sienna miller.
....although really I'm not sure if these rules allow for any time when you're not drinking.
....fine, if even that wasn't intense enough for you, watch Lost afterward and play that drinking game...or don't and just watch the fucking show because it is SO GOOD and not enough people seem to get that into their heads (note to jess: sooooooo much better than ANTM, and that's saying a lot because I like tyra so much that I even watched her lame montel-esque talkshow today)
...um, apparently vegetables "love her back"...whatever Hilary you and your lame wannebe rockstar boyfriend (blog included) should just hang out with the vegetables then and stop dissing Kelly Clarkson. By the way Joel or Benji (or whichever one she's dating, I have to say that as cheesy pop goes Kelly is waaaaaay better than Hilary, and both of them are waaaaaaay better than Good Charlotte.)
innyhoo, sketchy photo evidence of alleged "lohanderrama" hook-up from perez hilton. Yet, no matter how sketch the evidence, I kind of believe it because L.Lo has a way of disappointing me like that. Speaking of which have you seen how blonde she looks all over again...why must you jerk us around like this lindsay?
By the way--completely aside from gender issues--I hope Coryn doesn't win. I really hate the ones with all the problems (drug addict mom in Coryn's case) because they're always sobbing and hugging Tyra and then she makes these super-annoying, super-fake sympathetic faces and talks about how important it is to be strong and how she understands because she's the fattest victoria's secret model. whatever, tyra, if I wanted that kind of sappiness I could just watch extreme home makeover or something.
Plus--even if you don't care about the fashion shows--there is plenty of fashion week amusement over at the daily.

Scarlett & Josh: Um, why are they in disguise? For some reason they seem very guilty to me. I mean Josh is practically whistling a little tune and I'm not even sure what Scarlett's facial expression is communicating...
2ndary Question: Why does Josh carry shopping bags so weirdly? Perhaps Scarlett needs to teach him a lesson about handles...wait, maybe that's why she's carrying a purse over each shoulder: in order to demonstrate proper handle-use techniques.
okay...as long as we're watching hilarious videos right now....how about some URBAN NINJA (I'm not sure whether I'm a bigger fan of Gustav or the Ninja...I love them both so much)
both videos via the best week ever blog
I know you're probably wondering how--in my genius--I connected Tess of the d'Urbervilles to '80s pop...but the truth is there is no explaining my unbridled creativity.
bonus: I would have to say my fave for corny title points would be Rose of Sharon Blooms (for Grapes of Wrath)
note: guess what? I finished writing my essay so now I can go watch the season premiere of Desperate Housewives! yea!
