TNT found a way to interest me in their new Western, called Gateway.
They cast Cam
Gigandet in the lead as one of three brothers trying to save their town
after the murder of their father, the sheriff. Ever since his sexy arms (and
cute butt) showed up in Burlesque, I’ve been hooked.
The Republicans are calling President Obama’s plan to set a minimum tax on millionaires “class
warfare.” President Obama say no, it’s math. Town Called Dobson awakens to
remind us that the Republicans already hate science, so hating math isn’t a
in an interview I missed until Queerty brought it up, says
that The Voice is naturally going to be more inclusive of different types than
American Idol because of the blind audition. Who would have expected Beverly,
“a bald, pierced, tattoo, kilt-wearing dyke. And she’s got this great
voice, and you hear the voice first and then your eyes make the judgment.”
Mount Tambora, the most powerful recorded volcano, has rumbled awake, causing farmers in Indonesia who normally
ignore smoking mountains to flee in fear.
Lea Michele has split from her boyfriend Theo Stockman after about a year. Frankly, I don’t know how any of
the Glee actors can maintain a relationship with their schedules.
An upcoming special election in Iowa could result in the
Democrats losing control of the Senate, bringing the possibility of a
Constitutional amendment ending marriage equality in the state into very real
Farewell Delores Hope,
singer and widow of Bob
Hope, who passed away at the age of 102.
has joined the cast of The Expendables 2, which seems to go
against the entire concept of the franchise. But it makes me more likely to
catch it on HBO.
Chaz Bono is being given additional security from the producers of Dancing
With the Stars, the same way that Bristol
Palin was when she stirred up controversy on the show.
Gingers are being turned away from the world’s largest sperm bank
(so much restraint required) because there’s little demand for ginger babies
these days. Dammit, people, they have souls!
In the end of an era, New York City is getting rid of their last single space, mechanical parking
meters in favor of new, electronic models that take credit cards. So many
sitcoms just became obsolete with their “change for the meter” bits.
I misunderstood Puncture when I ran the trailer a
while back. I thought Chris Evans
was just a hot, shirtless lawyer junkie. Now I know he’s playing the late Mike Weiss, who accidentally took on needle reuse and help combat
the spread of HIV. So it’s a serious movie about a junkie lawyer who likes to
flex his pecs while wearing slacks and suspenders with no shirt.
A federal judge has ruled that the tapes from the Prop 8
trial can be released, though he stayed the order through
September 30th for the inevitable appeal.
In a matter of weeks, gamers playing FoldIt managed to solve a protein problem that had been vexing
HIV scientists for a decade. It may lead to new research avenues.
And our long nightmare is nearing an end, with a settlement close in the Charlie Sheen lawsuits with Chuck
Lorre, Warner, and CBS. It’s estimated Sheen will end up with around $25 million
of the $100 million he sought, mostly related to back end money from
Max Adler says that
yes, he’s returning to Glee, and it’s a shocking storyline
that no one will see coming when it happens. In all fairness to Max, I don’t
see most of the storylines on Glee coming, because the show is so inconsistent.
