Dr. Laura slithers off the air

I remember hearing Dr. Laura on the radio in the mid-90's, which was when she was second in popularity only to Rush Limbaugh.  She was known for her "tough love" approach to callers' problems, which basically means she was an asshole to them.  She put them down, she made them feel like bad people, she...

Vigilant Paranoids

This is so completely absurd that I almost don't know how to react.  Almost. There's a website called Vigilant Citizen whose author is convinced that Lady Gaga is an evil agent of a shadowy secret society which is using mind control to shape the thoughts and actions of our precious, precious children.  All this is...

Let Michael Phelps smoke his bong, goddammit

The sports world was shaken to its very core as Michael Phelps, darling swimmer of the 2008 Olympics, admitted that he did smoke pot from a bong as depicted in a tabloid photo. "I'm 23 years old, and despite the successes I have had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way,... Continue Reading →

Larry David’s thoughts on pre-election suffering

15 years is, like, a lifetime to Miley Cyrus

In other news of the mind-bogglingly absurd, Miley Cyrus (a.k.a. Hannah Montana, Disney's latest mass-marketed child entertainment product) is going to write her goddamn memoirs.  Her MEMOIRS!  She's only 15 years old.  What "life experiences" can she possibly write about?  Her fame?  Yawn.  Her daddy's ex-fame?  Double-wide yawn.  Following your dreams?  Gimme a break.  Does...

4 Minutes (of suck)

Is it me, or does the new Madonna single "4 Minutes" totally suck?  It's got Justin Timberlake's fingerprints all over it, which means it sounds just like every other bit of mass-marketed twaddle out there.  (It's either twaddle or piffle, I can't quite decide.)  Blecchhh.  Oh well, I guess it's nice to see her team...
