From blinkliz: The Daily Show's coverage of Macacagate, confirming what was basically lurking in my mind the whole time: it kinda sounds like something a toddler would say ("OH NO MOMMY, MACACA!"). Rob Corddry concludes (edda, brace yourself), "It sure as [bleep] sounds racist, but here in Virginia... I'm not sure if that helps or hurts a guy." I like the "OHHHHHHHHH" from the audience after that part.
William H. Macy: Lateness Doesn't Become Lohan. More to the point, "There is not an apology big enough in the world to have to make 150 people scramble. It's nothing but disrespect. And Lindsay Lohan is not the only one. A lot of actors show up late as if they're God's gift to the film. It's inexcusable. They should have their asses kicked."
NYC Officials Want New 'Survivor' Pulled. Meanwhile...
The show's host, Jeff Probst, said the network was aware this season's race ploy might offend viewers. "It's very risky because you're bringing up a topic that is a hot button," he told asap, The Associated Press service for younger readers. "There's a history of segregation you can't ignore. It is part of our history. For that, it's much safer to say, 'No, let's just stick with things the way they are. Let's don't be the network to rock the boat. Let's not have "Survivor" try something new,'" he said. "But the biases from home can't affect you. This is an equal opportunity game."Probst, what the hell are you talking about?
(I'll tell you what--Phil would never stand for this shit.)
Applebee's taps celeb chef for new menu items. Well, good, because I had takeout from there last weekend and it was awful. The chicken was squeaky, and their idea of salad is lonely lettuce.
Kittens of Darkness motivational posters. (Plus, an answer to our question as to whether pirates beat ninjas or vice versa.) (Hee, "Cosplay.")
Posters: Children of Men (they're mostly text, but the second one creeps me the hell out), Haven (oh, Orlando, you're so butch), and Bridge to Terabithia.
Pictures of movie!Transformers, and apparently people are not happy about them.
Re: John Mark Karr: What's creepier, a man who killed a very young girl, or a man who wishes he had been the one who killed a very young girl?
Austrian girl, held captive for eight years, escapes; captor throws himself in front of train. I don't know why, but I'm slightly fascinated by this story. Why did the door get left open in the first place? Was the guy at all surprised that eight years of (I assume) brainwashing didn't stop the girl from making a break for it the first chance she got? (An example of a similar captive who was allowed to have an outside job and only escaped after the man's wife said, "Hey, you can go.") Did he come down the stairs, see the open door, realize the girl was gone, and go "Oh, shit"? Why did he throw himself in front of the train (which did, in fact, kill him)? I mean, I can think of a lot of very compelling reasons; I'm just wondering what his exact train of logic was.
ETA: Oh my God, "train of logic." That was seriously unintended and horrible. Now I understand why everyone's making stupid puns in the comments.
