I can't keep it a secret any longer. Jake Gyllenhaal is my babydaddy. We've decided to return blonde girl, unless one of you want her. I can get you a good deal, really!

Try Before You Buy



Check out this collection of tv spots. Proof that sex and a little naughtiness sells around the world... 2 (a sketch not an ad), 3, 5 and 6 are great.

Words Cannot Describe...



Ya'll know I loves me some Dolly - and I had forgotten she had her own show, which should totally be put back on the air or at least rerun on Lifetime. The referee outfit complete with matching acrylic nails is flawless! [Queerty]

A Prairie Home Companion

I've loved THIS Prairie Home Companion for years so I'm very excited to see THIS one too. Robert Altman directs an ensemble cast to die for: Meryl Streep and Lily Tomlin, Woody Harrelson and John C. Reilly (as the cowboys Dusty and Lefty), Kevin Kline (as Guy Noir, Private Eye) and Tommy Lee Jones. Oh, and Lindsay Lohan's in it too. Opens June 9. See ya there!

An Incovenient Truth

Thanks for posting the trailer on the electric car film, Jason. Looks like something we should all see.

Also, check out this brief history of the electric car: it was invented in the 1830's and NYC's first fleet of taxis were 100% electric! The discovery of easily extractable oil (in Oklahoma no less!) is probably the only reason we're not all driving electric cars today. And there is no question that Big Oil is doing everything in it's power to squelch alternative fuels and more efficient gasoline engines - despite very loud lip service to the contrary.

Another film to check out this summer is Al Gore's global warming film An Inconvenient Truth. It's already got GWB and Fox News on the offensive (umm... I meant DEFENSIVE; they are offensive), so it must have hit a nerve. It opens here on June 23 at AMC 20, and I hope you'll all see it with me.Finally, check out this adaptation of Google Maps that shows the effect of rising sea levels.

UPDATE: Predictably, Big Oil is now unleashing their attack dogs on Gore: Learning about global warming from a film by Al Gore is like learning about Nazi Germany from a film by Joseph Goebbels.

Holy Shit!

WIRED publishes internal AT&T documents showing company sold out customers to the NSA
In 2003 AT&T built "secret rooms" hidden deep in the bowels of its central offices in various cities, housing computer gear for a government spy operation which taps into the company's popular WorldNet service and the entire internet. These installations enable the government to look at every individual message on the internet and analyze exactly what people are doing. Documents showing the hardwire installation in San Francisco suggest that there are similar locations being installed in numerous other cities.

This is HUGE. And just the tip of the iceberg for sure. [AMERICAblog again]

Superman Returns!

Here's the latest trailer for Superman Returns. I've been skeptical of all the hype, but this really looks great! And I'm not just talking about Brandon Routh's superbulge! Effects and art direction look amazing and Kevin Spacey devours the scenery as Lex Luther - can't wait!

Pimpfants





















Today in WTF... Pimpfants. Apparently parents have been longing for clothing that allows their children to be both hip and comfortable.


From the Pimpfants website:
Pimpfants is more than a name, it's a movement! Our clothing bridges the generation gap between parents and kids, allowing babies and tots everywhere the opportunity to hit the playground with fresh gear and street cred.
Pimpfants uses only the highest quality products, so your shorties can represent in style and comfort.
If you want puppy dogs, ducks and frogs, you'll have to visit the a zoo. But if you are looking for children's clothing that defines a generation, look to Pimpfants!

Sure, I love Trent and Miu - Perez makes my ass twitch - but Jason is my pointless celebrity gossip soulmate. With posts like this and this. I just cain't quit you! He also wrote this great story that gives me childhood flashbacks and he too has a Gyllenhaal obsession. It's kismet.

Gore On SNL

Oh, sweet baby Jesus! Have you guys seen Al Gore's intro for this past week's Saturday Night Live? Brazilliant! He is SO running again...

Transformed By Fabulous Secret Powers

Good news. The complete He-Man collection has been remastered and is now available on DVD. Slate takes a look back at classic bit of 80s fluff, and, you guessed it: He-Man is very, very gay.

Prince Adam, He-Man's alter ego, is a ripped Nordic pageboy with blinding teeth and sharply waxed eyebrows who spends lazy afternoons pampering his timid pet cat; he wears lavender stretch pants, furry purple Ugg boots, and a sleeveless pink blouse that clings like saran wrap to his pecs. To become He-Man, Adam harnesses what he calls "fabulous secret powers": His clothes fall off, his voice drops a full octave, his skin turns from vanilla to nut brown, his giant sword starts gushing energy, and he adopts a name so absurdly masculine it's redundant. Next, he typically runs around seizing space-wands with glowing knobs and fabulously straddling giant rockets. He hangs out with people called Fisto and Ram Man, and they all exchange wink-wink nudge-nudge dialogue: "I'd like to hear more about this hooded seed-man of yours!"

The links are great. [Queerty]

Butterflies!














We had the media opening for our new butterfly exhibit today. It's a pretty neat exhibit, but the weather has been so cold lately the butterflies aren't very active and are slow to emerge from their chrysalises. So in true media whore fashion, we had 300 "flighted" butterflies flown in for the opening. Who knew the little buggers would arrive all folded up and individually packaged in little wax paper envelopes?!?!? Anyway, we had a great time setting them free, so I thought I would share a few pics. The last one is Julie A. with a Julia Longwing.

Anti-Bush Protesters at OSU















Oklahoma State University professors Doug Hershey, left, and Stan Fox participate in a protest outside of Boone Pickens Stadium after walking out in protest as President Bush began his commencement address in Stillwater, Okla. Saturday, May 6, 2006. Student members of Oklahoma State University's Young Democrats organized the protest. (AP Photo/Brandi Simons)


You know things have gotten bad for Bush when there are this many people protesting his appearance in one of the few states where he still enjoys some degree of popular support. More pics at DemoOkie. And interesting comments in the forum about how T. Boone Pickens may have been instrumental in orchestrating the appearance. But then since the name of the school has been changed to Boone State University, I guess he gets what he wants...

like I need a reason to go to Chicago

If you’re passing through terminal 3 at Chicago O’Hare Airport (ORD), take a look the Accenture Interactive Network screen, a 10x7-foot monster that reminds us of Tom Cruise’s computer symphony in Minority Report. The touchscreen tech lets you move windows around with your hands, giving you access to the latest weather, news, and video clips.

Accenture plans to expand the idea to other venues beyond airports, too, delivering info, entertainment, and of course, advertising. No word on whether the displays will be shouting out personalized ads at you, pleading with you to try on some khakis at the Gap.

That's a piece of meat!


Okay, Thomas and I went to dinner tonight with older (locally connected) friends to a little italian restaruant near downtown Chicago. One of our friends knows the owner, we get a good table, life is good. In walks Ron Jeremy! and his posse to the private dinning room in the back. And the two 45DD blonds on his arm were perfectly skanky. Ah, star sitings... The owner jokingly tells us that they've requested to do a film in the back room, would he cater it?

Speaking of guerilla marketing... My friend Steve forwarded an email to me from our friend Kathy in London. She just said this was outside her office this morning, but, of course, as a Londoner she couldn't be bothered to find out what the bloody thing was. So, I had to ask the BBC.

Casino Royale



This is supposedly a leaked trailer from the upcoming James Bond prequel Casino Royale. It’s in French, mais of course. I’m kind of a 007 junkie, even though the franchise hasn’t exactly improved with age. From this clip, I must say Daniel Craig isn’t as horrid as I had feared, but he’s no Pierce Brosnan and certainly no Sean Connery. Let’s hope the movie doesn’t blow goats. [IDontLikeYouInThatWay]

I hope Stephen Colbert packs his sunscreen; I hear the sun is brutal in Guantanamo. According to this short piece in USA Today, Bush and his crew were none too pleased with Colbert's eviscerating roast of the president at the White House Correspondents Dinner.

manscaping

Philips/Norelco is marketing its new Bodygroom razor by focusing on what all men want: a bigger dick. Yes, following what the porn industry has known for years, the company is promoting the razor's ability to add an "optical inch" to one's manhood by making the trimming of that area simple, painless and rewarding size-wise. Forget five bladed razors. Gillette's beat that one to death. Now, it's all about removing body hair from hard to reach places and catering to men's obsession with size. Hey, woman want cleavage enhancing bras. Men ought to have a similar weapon at their disposal as well.

John should buy stock.
