-- Yes! I love newsperson screw ups. I know it's the way the general news is designed to be delivered, but it's so stodgy...it's probably the main reason I don't watch. Ever. Anyway, 'slow and slutty.' --
-- Have you ever been on Meetup.com? The Blade has a story on it this morning. I haven't searched through the local Toledo groups because I've had little free time since I started working here, but go through it; you'd be surprised at the amount of people who may have quirky (or typical) interests like yourself. Don't worry, it's not sleazy like CL can be. --
-- Besides JT's, other albums to look forward to. WARNING WARNING...it's a click through gallery. Hate those. --
-- If you were going up, you prob know, but if you didn't the GAGA SHOW IN DETROIT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. She's got something called synovitis, or joint inflammation. "I've been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for sometime now, over the last month it has worsened," she wrote. "I've been praying it would heal".
-- Need to try iMadeface. --
-- Lol, Bill Cosby talks about all those sweaters he wore as Cliff Huxtable. "I wanted to get away from the white coat all the time, or the blue blazer look, with the khaki pants and the penny loafers."
-- OK, now this is definitely a gallery I clicked through. Oscar statuettes depicting the best movies of the year going back to 1927. For instance the Million Dollar Baby award is dressed as a boxer. --
-- JT and Jay-Z touring is fine by me. I bet the price will rival a Gaga tickets. That'll be in the hundreds.
-- Shia LaBeouf will be having real sex on camera. The distributor has announced that it has secured the U.S. rights to Nymphomaniac, a “wild and poetic story” about one woman’s erotic journey from Melancholia director Lars von Trier. The deal was settled after Magnolia recently caught a screening of footage from the film in Berlin.
LOL. Nymphomaniac...wild and poetic? Nymphomania...poetic?
-- Frank Ocean, even after the awkward performance, is set to get the Grammy bump on Channel Orange. Of those, the largest percentage gain might belong to Ocean's set, which could post a jump of 120%. A week ago, "Channel ORANGE" moved 5,000 according to SoundScan, so it might have jumped to 11,000 in the week ending Sunday.
-- I've warned you about it before. Star Wars will consume pop culture in a few years. Kevin Smith expounds on that sentiment. Smith adds, "You can't call it the commodification of Star Wars because the creator himself first commodified Star Wars a long, long time ago in a decade far, far away with toys and bed sheets and inflatable light sabers. Star Wars has always been big business. It's a roller-coaster ride in a theme park: thrilling, fun and good for repeat business. And as you leave the ride, you're compelled to buy a T-shirt and snow globe memento. Disney paid billions for Star Wars, but with the JJ news and now this subsequent info about the spinoff flicks, they're gonna make double what they paid in the first 10 years alone. After that, the financial Force will be with them. Always."
-- The best video game I've ever played, the Arkham series that began in 2009, has another installment, a prequel, coming later this year. This is my Christmas.
-- The buzzy internet story of the day, or yesterday, or whenever, is the owl that got caught in the grill of a truck. Oh, the things that people (you) get bonkers over on the web. --
