Really, all I can think when I read this is that it is so unfair that people don't give ME swag. Well, that and why the fuck is it such a manly swag bag? Really, doesn't it seem very macho to you.....are they saying that women can't make it onto the top 250 list????????
Mass Appeal: So you were in Bullet with Tupac, right?
Adrien Brody: Oh, yeah. I went bombing with Tupac. Get the fuck outta here. I went bombing in Brooklyn with Tupac. On the wall, he was writing “Thug Life” before any Thug Life albums were out, and he had it on his chest. I was like, What the fuck is Thug Life? That’s cool. I think some of it might be on the wall in a scene in Bullet. I forget what I wrote.
Mass Appeal: Did you spend a lot of time with ’Pac?
Adrien Brody: Mickey [Rourke] and ’Pac’s boy had this fistfight, so we’re all just chilling, drinking in Mickey’s trailer. ’Pac would come out in a blaze of smoke, and we would all hang out a lot. One night, we shot all night. I finally got one take or two takes, because the sun was coming up. I just came through in the crunch. It was independent guerilla film making, craziness. Afterwards, I was hanging under the Major Deegan [Expressway] in a limo at like four in the morning when I played my ’Pac my beats on cassette! I remember chilling with ’Pac, just cruising on the way home in the back of the car, sun coming up—it was a dream come true. It was just one of those moments." [Mass Appeal Magazine via The Corsair]
FWD: What do you think of Scarlett’s style?
Woody Allen: I have had many conversations with Scarlett on this subject. The main thing I tell her is to simplify. I think that she dresses older than she should. I would tell her to wear her hair looser, to lessen the makeup and heavy red lipstick. Be more natural. It’s a starlet thing. She is a beautiful girl but I have told her to tone it down.
FWD: Are there any specific designers you would recommend?
Woody Allen: I wouldn’t go that far. But I have told her to dress her age, instead of dressing like my Aunt Minnie." [Fashionweekdaily]
*Although the FWD article does make his look sound a lot classier than it's alway appeared to the naked eye, describing his outfit as "a trademark slouchy green cashmere jumper" and leaving out any mention of his lovely trademark Groucho Marx glasses.
Innyhoo, that was just a long intro to this little gem of an excerpt from today's Gawker Stalker:
I saw Mary-Kate Olsen at Galaxy Deli on 10th street and 3rd ave. around 10:30 pm tonight. She was wearing a fur jacket, black leggings, black platform high heels, a big gold ring and a silvery snake ring, and a black sunhat-shaped hat made of velvet or felt. She’s actually pretty, with a heart-shaped face. She was at the cash register taking her sweet time picking out lots of candy: Twizzlers, Starburst, Tootsie Rolls. She kept talking about the Tootsie Rolls to the chubby, fey boy she was with. He said something about kids from his acting class to which she responded with a comment that I didn’t catch, but the inflection in her voice is what I like to call the slack-jaw-ennui-up-talk. Then he said sarcastically: “You’re getting cold-hearted in your old age.” One or both of them smelled like booze.
See! Proof that Tootsie Rolls are truly her favorite candy! I mean we all read the rumours......but I still had my doubts. I feel much more at peace now that I know it's for real.
Okay, plus I just liked it b/c her outfit sounds cute in that special MK way: love the black leggings with black platforms......and obvs. the fur. Um, the hat though? Seriously? That's venturing onto dangerously J.Lo infested territory, right?
My real point was just that I think it's super cool and random that you guys are brothers.
And all I gotta say to you / Wannabe, gonnabe, cocksuckin’, pussy-eatin’ prankstas / Cuz when the fry dies down what the fuck you gonna do / Damn it feels good to be a [hamsta]
Just a few words to live by from the Geto Boys.
[all cool people will obviously be buying a piece of the hotness at Delia*s......although why the fuck it only comes in one color I do not know]
Oh wait, never mind, apparently you already cleared the air about this frightening rumour (You can go hang out with Clint again). Still.....calling that creature beautiful? Not hot man, not hot.
TERI HATCHER and GEORGE CLOONEY are playing coy about their rumoured romance, by refusing to chat about their reported date.
DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star Hatcher is staying quiet about the ‘date’, while Clooney insists “it’s a good rumour”.
The actress says, “If I went on a date with George Clooney I would not be talking about it.”
And gentleman George adds, “She is my neighbour, though, and she’s beautiful.” [Source]
2. Watch Tristan and Isolde even though it obviously wasn't going to be supa dupa (considering the fact that I saw most of the previews on TV) and drool over James Franco. I love him because a) He's pretty. b) Basically any cookie cutter "hot guy" is like 5 bazillion times hotter in an ancient warrior costume. c) He comes from Palo Alto which has a severe lack of interesting famous people (No! The Donnas are not interesting)
3. Watch (so fucking overhyped) 24 because people talk about it so much that it must be good, right? Wrong. What a waste of 4 hours of precious TV space this week....and really, WTF with the 2 day/4 hr season premiere, a little full of ourselves are we? Surely that's more than anyone could stand?
Actually, the absolute crap that is 24 kind of brought home the fact that TV is a lot less inspiring lately than usual...............I look back fondly on the early days of Alias, the O.C., Sex and the City, even as recently as Lost. Lately my favorite show is Grey's Anatomy and frankly, that's just because there's nothing better at the moment.
They wonder why we're so addicted to reality TV, huh? Give me Laguna Beach any day over 24! What's stupider: watching superficial people (successfully) act funny and superficial or watching superficial people (unsuccessfully) act important and exciting?
4. Watch a lot of other crap TV and then bitch about it all. My life is so hard.
Um, and maybe to like every celebrity. Here's a nice lil' compilation of pictures of famous peoples getting high.
Hmph, and they say Kate Moss isn't a good role model??? Geez, at least she gets high in the privacy of her own recording studio.

Answer: Hellz to the yah! C'mon, I think Angela Merkel (the German Chancellor) looks pretty flustered when he gives her the ol' college try.
