Daniel Craig recently dressed in drag for an ad supporting gender equality. Narrarated by Dame Judy Dench, who plays “M” in the Bond movies, Craig seemingly appears in the ad as James Bond but later appears in drag. For me, I thought Brett Butler had crawled out of whatever cave she’s been hiding in…
If you don’t know who Brett Butler is and would like a comparative view, check out the video below:
If you’re having a bad day…if you ever have a bad day, period, watch this video. Everyone loves a good, dubbed, exercise video from the 80s. I give you “Brenda’s Verjeen.”
I was watching TMZ tonight and saw a clip about a little person that poses as Mr. T in Hollywood. While I couldn’t find a decent, share-able clip of that fantastic, mohawk-sporting little person, I did run across this episode of Mr. T’s cartoon show, which surprisingly, I remembered seeing from when I was a tyke.
For those of you who don’t know, Mr. T. is another Hollywood personality phenomenon who created the strange line between actor, athlete, novelty personality that is now walked by men like The Rock, John Cena, and Vern Troyer (he may not be an athlete but his notoriety closely mirrors that of Mr. T in the late 70s/early 80s). Mr. T is famous for his role as B.A. Baracaus in “The A Team” and as boxer Clubber Lang in Rocky III. Little known fact, Mr. T got his start in Hollywood working as a bodyguard for Muhummed Ali, Diana Ross, and Steve McQueen. Also, in 1984, Mr. T released an album called “Mr. T’s Commandments”, which instructed kids to stay away from drugs and to stay in school.
To point out that Charlie Sheen ironically lost, I mean won, his job on “2 1/2 Half Men” today, I thought I’d put together a “Winning” playlist to commemorate the occasion. The songs listed below are all about being a winner. Kinda makes you think how the song might be different had Charlie Sheen written the song with his magical fingertips in tiger’s blood.
1. “I Fought the Law” – The Clash
2. “We Are the Champions” – Queen
3. “The Winner Takes it All” – ABBA
4. “Winning” – Santana
5. “All I Do is Win” – DJ Khaled feat. Ludacris
6. “Simply the Best” – Tina Turner
7. “Bad” – Michael Jackson
8. “Fame” – David Bowie
9. “$ucce$$” – Dannii Minogue
And last but not least…
10. “Eye of the Tiger” – Survivor
Also, did anyone else happen to check out Sheen’s new Ustream show, “Crazy Korner?” I got a huge kick out of one of the “goddesses” boringly reading a magazine in the background. See below…
Personally, anytime I see pictures of Williams and Kate, I only think about one thing: damn he’s getting bald! After doing a Google search on “Prince William balding,” I’ve found that Kate Middleton has obviously influenced Prince William’s attention to his ever-increasingly shiny dome. The first picture I’ve posted is the most recent, and as you look at the other photos, which are arranged from newest to oldest, Prince William has obviously started “Rogaine-ing” a lead in race against balding time.
I LOVE Golden Girls!!! I mean, what’s not to love? It is one of the best TV shows of all-time, hands down. It was way ahead of it’s time in terms of character arcs, storylines, dialogue, and sexual references. As a tribute to this bad-ass show, I will post a Golden Girls episode flashback each week. Starting with the first season, I will provide an episode summary/commentary of the episode that aired exactly on this week all those years ago. If I can find clips, I will certainly post. Just a little something to add a “golden” ray of sunshine to your day (pun intended).
This week’s episode is highly appropriate given that so many people have been sick with a cold or flu.
“Flu Attack”, Episode 121, 1985. A week before an awards ceremony for the Volunteer of the Year, Blanche, Dorothy and Rose each come down with a nasty flu, which compounds their arguing over who will win the prestigious award. Meanwhile, Sophia is having a hard time coming up with a date for the event. (I actually found the entire episode on YouTube!)
Blanche: [the girls have the flu] Dorothy, where’s my heating pad?
Dorothy: How should I know?
Blanche: [she holds up an electrical cord] Well if this isn’t it, I’d like to know what other electrical appliance you’re using under that blanket
Sophia Petrillo: What’re you doing?
Rose Nylund: We’re having a group hug, Sophia.
Sophia Petrillo: Well knock it off, the neighbors are going to get the wrong idea.
