Single Ladies

I’ll be the first to admit I love Beyonce, but her lyrics are ridiculous. Little BoBo (actress Nina Millin) on YouTube has created a series of posts called The Beyoncelogues where she offers dramatic readings of Beyonce’s redick lyrics. The result is hilarious.  Enjoy.

George Clooney as a Leather Daddy

George Cluny My guess is that this is photoshopped but I just don’t care. I love this.

Chelsea Handler

Chelsea HandlerChelsea Handler’s popular show, Chelsea Lately, on E Television will end on Tuesday, August 26th.  I’m  not sure what is next for the author of Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me Chelsea.  Her show has given a number of comedians an excellent platform, and I really liked her format which is very different from other night time talk shows on television.

I have no idea who will follow Stephen Colbert after he replaces David Letterman on CBS, but I’d love to see her follow Stephen and replace the Craig Ferguson Late Show.

Top Chef coming to Boston

Top Chef BostonEarlier this week Eater Boston said rumors were swirling that Top Chef might be filming upcoming Season 12 in Boston.  Yesterday those rumors were confirmed.  The cast and crew will film all over the city and at the coast, including sites like Fenway Park and Plimoth Plantation as possible destinations. The season will also involve some Boston personalities who are affiliated with the show. Past Boston-based “Top Chef” contestants include Sweet Cheeks boss Tiffani Faison , who was on the first season of the series, and restaurateur Michael Schlow , who was on “Top Chef Masters” were mentioned in the Boston Globe article.

I’ve never watched the show since cooking competitions stress me out.  I’m more interested in the food than the intrigue or competition, but I think it will be cool to have them showcase Boston by filming here.

 

Rolling Stone cover

Julia Luis-DreyfusThis morning I had a good laugh when I saw the current Rolling Stones magazine cover in a Boston.com article.  It features a naked Julia Louis-Dreyfus with the US Constitution and John Hancock’s signature scrawled on her back. It is unclear to me if the historical error is intentional or a gaffe. The Boston.com makes it seem that it was (sadly) the former.

You can read more about this in today’s Boston.com.

Breakfast Club: 30 years ago today

Breakfast ClubWant to feel old? Thirty years ago today, Andrew Clark (Emilio Estevez), Brian Johnson (Anthony Michael Hall), John Bender (Judd Nelson), Claire Standish (Molly Ringwald), and Allison Reynolds (Ally Sheedy) were all supposedly serving a weekend detention at Sherman H.S.

The Breakfast Club was actually released in February 1985 so the 30th anniversary of the film’s release is still a year away but I couldn’t resist sharing when I saw this making the rounds on Twittah.
