Overview: Ready for yet another encounter with someone who has an interesting accent? Of course you are. The good news is that you'll have just that opportunity, and that you'll be just as fascinating to them as they are to you.
Just when you were wondering when someone new and interesting might cross your path, the universe has seen fit to arrange just such an encounter for you. Listen up no matter where you are for one of those accents that you so love to hear -- the kind that makes you swoon. Then be brave. Introduce yourself. They might need a guided tour of your town.
Promises, promises. Add this to "tall, dark and gorgeous" from the other day--is my horoscope trying to pimp me out, or what? And I'm still not sure what the whole Dark Corridor II: The Hallening thing up there was about.
Oscars: I'm still pissed that I went through the trouble of manually creating and fucking up an Oscar pool database last year (no, I still don't know who won the pool) when ABC had a pool game of its own. Usually I'd relied on Yahoo Games, but they didn't have a pool last year... because it had moved to Oscar.com. THANKS FOR TELLING ME, GUYS. Fnarrr. This year? We make no such mistakes.

I'm going to introduce this link by saying that I am a total magpie, as Vladimir will tell you, and I am easily distracted by shiny pictures. I don't even remember how I ended up here, but suffice it to say that I did, and that it cracks me up to find a picture of Emmy Rossum vamping on the Golden Globes red carpet with Clive Owen in the background totally all, "GOD! I HATE YOU SO MUCH! MOVE IT OR LOSE IT!"
Either that, or he is possibly sexing her up with the powers of his mind. You never really know with Clive Owen.
Celebrity Schadenfreude Moment: "Garner Deemed Elektra 'Awful'."
The Revenge of the Sith opening crawl has been released.
Narnia set pics!
The ending of Hide and Seek is somehow worth unprecedented security measures. I'm not sure why, because as soon as the first crowd has seen the movie, it'll be all over the internet anyway...
A 40-year-old woman held sex and drug parties with teenage boys, telling police she wanted to be a "cool mom," authorities say.And I say "ew" not because she's 40 (although, yeah, it's gross that she went after minors). But if she had no children, I'd be a lot less squicked out: "Authorities did not say how many children she has or whether any of them were at the parties." Probably because they've already been moved into therapy and/or the Witness Protection Program. But she definitely wanted to be a "cool mom." Ewwwww.
Sylvia Johnson allegedly provided marijuana, methamphetamine and alcohol to eight boys at parties she hosted at her suburban Denver home in 2003 and 2004. According to court papers, she admitted having sex with five of the boys.
I'm sure y'all have read the news story about the LA commuter train crash, but... I want to stab this guy so bad. Problem is, he'd probably thank me for it.

ETA: Remember the Clint Eastwood rant four entries back? Cindy Adams, NY Post (link is time sensitive):
January 27, 2005 -- The Oscars. Clint the-guy's-great East wood. Was really unhappy with the Golden Globes. Happy his "Million Dollar Baby" got the best picture nod. Not happy he didn't get best actor. His movie's got a maybe Best Actress, maybe Best Director, maybe Best Movie, maybe Best Actress, maybe best popcorn — but he was downcast at not being personally nominated. He felt — and here's the exact phrase they're telling me — "overlooked." He felt — and here's the exact phrase they're telling me — "shut out." He is now — and here's the exact phrase they're telling me — "over the moon" at the Academy Award nomination for his own acting job.
