I am SUCH A Child

Laughed so hard, I farted… (Kidding. I’m kidding. I wasn’t laughing, yet…)
THX for Your Eyes

Turn up the volume, you want to hear this:

Hysterical, no?

If I had this I’d never oversleep again. The risks would be too great!

Rest Peacefully...

They come in threes... but this time there were some surprises: Brad Renfro, 25; Heath Ledger, 28; Suzanne Pleshette, 70.

Renfro doesn't surprise me. I'm shocked, but not surprised. They guy seemed to have a tough go of it. I expected the Nick Nolte route, but didn't expect him to die quite so young.

Ledger. WTF? Like everyone else, I'm waiting to hear what the autopsy report says. However it goes, it's a sad end to a promising career.

And then we have Ms. Pleshette. From the time she was 21 to the time The Bob Newhart Show ended, she was never without a job. Her husky voice gave her a sultry sound that still makes me smile. She sounded so harsh in The Birds, and sweet in The Bob Newhart Show. I guess that's what acting is all about.

I think what surprised me the most is that Brittany Spears is not on this list. I know, I'm awful, but seriously, you know you were expecting it too, right? Of course right.

Sorry this is such an odd post... I'm tired, but I wanted to post.

Academy Award nomination information later...

Christopher Bowman
I saw the headline "Skating Star Dies" and thought "Rudy Galindo passed away." Morbid thought, I know. Then I read the article about "Bowman the Showman" and none of it rang a bell. I was a good gay in the 80's and 90's and I followed skating pretty closely (they all had those firm, "up" butts that I just wanted to... er, touch). None of the pictures made me go "ah-ha!"

And then I saw this one:


Poor guy, only 40... he was quite a cutie back in the day. He won the U.S. Men's figure skating championship in both '89 and '92. He also competed in two Olympic games (sadly, he did not medal in either).

He had troubles with bipolar issues and drugs. It is believed that drugs may have played a part in his death.

Edmund Hillary

Edmund Hillary who, with Tenzing Norgay, was the first to climb to the top of Mt. Everest has died. After descending his monumental climb he said simply, "We knocked the bastard off." An Adventurer, Conservationist, and Humanitarian, he was a great man.

He spent much of his later years trying to get word out about the condition of Everest and the people who live there. He raised around $250,000 a year for Nepalese children to build schools and provide scholarships.

What amazes me most about the man, is that he climbed Everest before there was the amazing amount of technical gear we have today. Gortex and the like were not around back in the 50's. He was the last of the great adventurers.

I'm off to Mexico for a cruise for a week... my first toast will be to Edmund.

I Gotta Watch More Rugby

I think I've been missing out: Check this video. I love me some Donncha O'Callaghan!

2008: Off to a Good Start

Well, Britney fans (and those like me who loathe her), it looks like it will be an entertaining year for those on the Britney Watch. This chick is such a mess. By now, I should be feeling sorry for her. I should hope for her to get her life on track and to make a big splashy comeback that could be made into a movie we could all love…

…at this point, I’m thinking she’s going to pull an Anna Nicole Smith at any moment. At least Anna went before the Supreme Court looking smokin’—Brit-Brit spends most of her time looking slag slurping her Frappuccino.

Britney Spears is a sad, sad mess and I should pity her… but I’m having SO much fun with this. Everyday a new mess is created by her. It’s like watching someone jump off a building: I shouldn’t look, I know what’s going to happen, but I can’t look away.
