"Or communal spaces are being overrun with ads. Trainstations, streets, squares, busses, and subways now scream one message after another at us. Once considered a "public," these spaces are increasing being seized by corporations to propagate their messages sloely in the interest of profit. Armed with heavy budgets, their marketing tactics are becoming more and more aggressive and manipulative.

For once there's a good reason to have bouncy breasts in a campaign, as these guys sell sports bras, and the creatives wasted no time seizing the opportunity. Check out shockabsorber.co.uk's bounce-o-meter, to understand how much better their sports bra is compared to regular bras.

STILL CLUBBING AT 42... GEORGE & GHB

Police arrest George Michael on drugs charges

Police have arrested singer George Michael on suspicion of possessing Class C drugs after he was found slumped at the wheel of a car.

Michael will return to a police station next month
Michael was taken into custody at Hyde Park Corner in central London early yesterday morning, following a call from a member of the public.
The former Wham! star, 42, was checked by paramedics but did not need hospital treatment.
He was initially arrested on suspicion of being unfit to drive, but after being taken to a police station and examined by a doctor this offence was not pursued.
The substances seized by officers are suspected to be cannabis and GHB, a drug also known as liquid ecstasy which is popular with clubbers, according to the Sun newspaper.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed that a 42-year-old man had been arrested.
"A search of the man revealed what was believed to be controlled substances," he said.
"He has been released on bail to return to a central London police station on a date in late March pending analysis of the substances recovered."
This is not the first time Michael has found himself on the wrong side of the law.
In 1998 the star was arrested for lewd conduct in a public toilet in Los Angeles after being spotted by an undercover police officer.

Jason asked me to repost the link to DJ Earworm's site. You may remember my post on his Pussycat Dolls mashup from last summer - his Scissor Sisters mashups are still some of my favs. Earworm's latest release is the epic 22-song mix "What's My Name," which combines Britney Spears, Beyonce, Donna Summer, Maroon 5, Eminem and Kanye West to name a few. Fun!

BREAKING NEWS: VP DICK SHOOTS AND SCORES!

BC-Cheney-Hunting Accident,110
Cheney accidentally shoots fellow hunter in Texas
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Vice President Dick Cheney accidentally shot and injured a man during a weekend quail hunting trip in Texas, his spokeswoman said Sunday.
Harry Whittington, 78, was "alert and doing fine" after Cheney sprayed Whittington with shotgun pellets on Saturday at the Armstrong Ranch in south Texas, said property owner Katharine Armstrong.
Armstrong said Cheney turned to shoot a bird and accidentally hit Whittington. She said Whittington was taken to Corpus Christi Memorial Hospital by ambulance.
Cheney's spokeswoman, Lea Anne McBride, said the vice president was with Whittington, a lawyer from Austin, Texas, and his wife at the hospital on Sunday afternoon.

More Vanity

The Tom Ford issue of Vanity Fair is on stands today. Unfortunately, no naked Jake, but some really amazing photography. Jared has some of the highlights. I LOVE the Reese Witherspoon photo. And Joaquin ain't too shabby either.

Give a Bear Hug


My editor and friend Sean Callahan has a new kids book out — Bear Hug — available on Amazon. It's really cute and, given he has 2 adorable young girls, it's something for the kiddies. Pick it up or pass it along.

Grammys: Madonna vs. Gorillaz


So, Whiskey Wednesday got in the way of the Grammys last night and for some reason they were screening some basketball game at the bar... I think the CGA Gorillaz "Feel Good, Inc."/leotard clad Madonna "Hung Up" opening act was kinda cool. I do agree the Gorillaz thing could have been more exciting, but technologically speaking, it was cool. Madonna - what can I say, the bitch looked fantastic and actually sounded pretty good. I'll be interested to hear what all of you think.

Otherwise, seems like it was the usual blend of fashion tragedies (Teri Hatcher, I hope you are ritually sacrificing your stylist this morning), over-inflated egos (All I'm saying is Kanye is overcompensating for something...) and sappy tributes.

Above: Madonna proves senior citizens can still pole dance, Kanye West and Jamie Foxx relive The Music Man, Teri Hatcher looks like death warmed over and Christina Aguilera looks amazing (whoda thunk?).

Arjan has clips of some of the other performances.

Related: Madonna's "Sorry" video is all over the net. This is by far my favorite song from the new album and the video is hawt. More leotards, rollerskates and a pimped out 70s-themed pussy wagon.

Graphic Design Position

I know I already posted this, but thought I would try again. We are in desperate need of a graphic designer while one of ours is on maternity leave! This would only be a 3-month contract job and the artist would need to start in 3 weeks time. This would be a perfect opportunity for someone just finishing school, someone who freelances or someone who is in between jobs. If you know ANYONE you think may be interested, please e-mail me at julie.jones@cnent.com.

Jason — Is there anyone at OSU-Tulsa who would want to do this as a paid internship? They don't have to be Cherokee.

Vanity Fair Naked

Buzz over the March Hollywood Issue of Vanity Fair has been building for months. Former Gucci and YSL creative director Tom Ford took the reins as guest artistic director for the issue and got tongues wagging over reports that all the stars in the issue were photographed nude.

Now, Ford and Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter (hire me please) are talking about he upcoming issue. It appears, thankfully, not everyone is naked. No word on the status of these four: George Clooney, Viggo Mortensen, Heath Ledger and Jake Gyllenhaal.

On the cover: Tom Ford with Kiera Knightly and Scarlett Johansson, photographed by Annie Leibovitz. Not digging Scarlett in this photo, but Kiera looks scorching. Tom Ford is one of the sexiest men alive.

Mrs. Henderson Presents

Finally saw Mrs. Henderson Presents last night - trying to catch any Oscar nominated films/performances that I haven't seen. What a fun movie! Judi Dench is fabulous - as always - as the rich widow who decides to buy an abandoned theater rather than exile herself to a life of needlepoint and charity luncheons. It's certainly an Oscar worthy performance, though Dame Judi can do this sort of thing before lunch without breaking a sweat.

The young British actress Kelly Reilly also stands out (quite literally) as one of the burlesque stars and British pop sensation Will Young is delicious as the lead male vocalist in Revuedeville - the theater's ever evolving variety show. Young was the winner of Britain's equivalent of American Idol and has gone on to become a major star.

Also - lots o' boobies. This film definately wins the Oscar for most screen time devoted to boobage in a major motion picture.

Date Movie

There is nothing like a well-done stupid movie. Especially when it spoofs half the movies made in the past five years and stars Michelle, I mean Alyson Hanigan. Date Movie, a story of the romance between Julia Jones and Grant Fonckyerdoder, will hit theaters Feb. 17. From the trailer and these stills it seems that no pun goes untouched. And Napoleon Dynamite makes an appearance.

Never Too Late for a Sequel




The Dark Crystal 1982




The Dark Crystal 2007












I guess that fact that a Dark Crystal sequel is in the works is actually old news. The Power of the Dark Crystal, the sequel to Jim Henson's 1982 masterpiece, is set to begin production this summer for a fall 2007 release (25 years after the original film). The film was back in the news last week after selection of a director who will update the film by integrating puppet characters into a CGI environment. The story was originally conceived by Jim Henson and is being produced by his children Brian and Lisa Henson. Brian Froud, conceptual designer for the original Dark Crystal and Labyrinth is also on board. Should be uber cool!

Seems the Muppets are having a bit or a renaissance - and I'm not just talking about the Miss Piggy/Jessica Simpson Pizza Hut commerical - not only are the puppets everywhere, but The Jim Henson Company also plans to release a Fraggle Rock movie in 2007.

Fred Phelps to Visit Tulsa

Grand Wizard of the nutjobs, Fred Phelps - you know the Kansas lunatic that protested Matthew Shepard's funeral and, most recently, the funerals of US servicemembers killed in Iraq - will bring his band of loonies down for a protest at the South Tulsa Baptist Church on Sunday. This is the church of former pastor Reverend Lonnie Latham - you know the one arrested for propositioning a male police officer in OKC. Phelps says he is protesting "the hypocritical, fag-invested Southern Baptist Convention." He doesn't know the half of it...

TOHR is mounting a response to the hatemonger's visit. Details in comments.

UPDATE: For some reason, Phelps abandoned his Tulsa protest. Perhaps he needed more time to prepare for his planned demonstration at Coretta Scott King’s funeral on Tuesday.
I'm with Queerty: "...we do hope he goes through with his plans. Why? Because it’ll be sooooo nice to see the man get his ass kicked by an angry mob on national television. "

OK, Melissa asked for it... Friday diversion. Submit your best baby name in the comments. We'll take the five (or so) top submissions and put them in a runoff next week.

Gonorrhea Lectim

The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of sexually transmitted disease. The disease is contracted through dangerous and high-risk behavior.
The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim and pronounced "gonna re-elect him."
Many victims contracted it in 2004, after having been screwed for the previous four years. Cognitive characteristics of infected individuals include: anti-social personality disorders, delusions of grandeur with messianic overtones, extreme cognitive dissonance, inability to incorporate new information, pronounced xenophobia and paranoia, inability to accept responsibility for own actions, cowardice masked by misplaced bravado, uncontrolled facial smirking, ignorance of geography and history, tendencies towards evangelical theocracy, categorical all-or-nothing behavior.
Naturalists and epidemiologists are amazed at how this destructive disease, which originated only a few years ago from a bush found in Texas, has spread throughout the country.

Whiskey Wednesday at Arnie's

10 things better than getting berated by your drunk boss at Arnie's on Whiskey Wednesday.

1. Licking hot lava
2. Thinking you went home with Charlize Theron only to waking up next to a drag queen
3. Stepping on a rusty nail
4. Being forced against your will to dress up like a KKK member on Martin Luther King Day
5. Listing to the Banana song on repeat all night.
6. Being dumb
7. Eating glass
8. Running naked through rose bushes
9. Being stuck on an elevator with Gilbert Gottfried
10. Spending a day with George Bush Jr.

I have found the limits to my gay-nish

I have never seen a episode of Project Runway, until yesterday when I watch a marathon of this seasons episodes and I have to say that the show is way gay. I mean really how gay does a fashion designer have to be? Do not get my wrong I love fashion but the show did not speak to the designer in me. PR was more about the contestants than about the dresses. Whereas Top Model is about the model, the business, photography and art direction.
