So the news on Wednesday was about Abercrombie & Fitch offering to pay the cast of the Jersey Shore not to

Not only is Texas inflicting Rick Perry on the rest of the country, they held a “Mayor for

Exactly how big of asshats do you have to be in the music

the bad boy image affects fans’ willingness to show up. Their fans will get

might be too racy even for DVD extras.
James Marsters is
reuniting with Charisma Carpenter for
an episode of Supernatural. They’ll be playing husband and wife, with her

I’m a little shaky on the format for The X Factor, but it’s being said that Mariah Carey will be the mentor for Simon Cowell’s house of artists. I thought each of the judges
mentored their own houses, but I admit to not being sure.
I’m unclear if Mexico City’s Texcoco Park is a concept, or a
plan for a massive geoengineering project. The article sounds like it’s a firm plan, but I can’t
imagine how you retrofit the city for something like that. I remember being in
Mexico City when I was a high school senior and being told that the city, built

Congratulations to fashion designer Michael Kors, who wed his longtime partner Lance Le Pere in New York Tuesday in a barefoot ceremony on the

In talking about Sherlock Holmes 2, Guy Ritchie says that Stephen Fry nails Mycroft, Holmes’ wisecracking brother. And
