In Defense of Lindsay Lohan

Lindsay Lohan in a green bikini

"Don't hate me because I'm young, rich, famous, talented and beautiful, with a rockin' body to boot!"

 

I just got home and all day, every news paper I saw had Lindsay Lohan on the front cover. You already know the story, I’m sure, she crashed her car and got arrested for a DUI, then got her picture taken passed out and vomiting the day after she was released. All the papers critisized her for getting high/drunk so soon after getting out of the hospital. So, why does everyone assume she’s high/drunk in those photos? You know what happens when you do a shit load of drugs and booze on a daily basis for a long time and then one day you don’t do that same shit load of drugs and booze?

Eccelston is Who on BBC America

Christopher Eccelston as Doctor Who

"I'm also fantastic on Heroes!"

Just flipped over to BBC America and they’re showing the complete 2005 season of Doctor Who today. If you’re in America, haven’t seen it yet and have cable, check it out if you can. As good as David Tennant is in the role, Christopher Eccelston is the fucking Doctor! Don’t take our word for it, watch the video below and see what some regular folks thought.

Billie Piper

Cheerleaders are so overrated.

Billie Piper along for the ride as the impossibly sexy Rose Tyler, sharp writing by Russell Davies (and others), tight direction by Euros Lyn (and others) and strong support from Noel Clarke and Camille Coduri made this series the new bar to be reached.

UPDATE/CORRECTION: BBC America isn’t showing the complete 2005 series today; they skipped over the episodes “The Unquiet Dead,” “Aliens of London,” and “World War III.”

Charles Nelson Reilly (1931-2007)

Charles Nelson Reilly

"I don't just play _____ on television, I am _____!"

I just saw on the Today show that Charles Nelson Reilly passed away over the weekend from complications related to pneumonia. He was a great comic actor who appeared in tons of films and television shows over the years. Check out the trailer for a movie of his autobiographical stage show The Life of Reilly if you’re not quite sure who he is:

And I thought I couldn’t sleep

Tony Wright of Penzance

"I'm not a pirate!"

Tony Wright of Penzance has broken the Guinness Record for Sleep Deprivation by staying awake for 11 days and nights straight. Man, I get hazy after a couple of days without sleep. However, Guinness wasn’t impressed. In point of fact, they couldn’t give a fuck, since they no longer officially recognize the category because of the inherent health risks. As a fan of sleep deprivation, I feel Tony Wright deserves much props for his achievement, especially when you consider his choice of venue for the endeavor: a bar. Read how he did it and check out the BBC news video on him.

When being profound, dress appropriately

Elisabeth Hasselbeck

"I can't help it if my breasts are beautiful!"

Everybody is talking about this clip from The View in which Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Rosie O’Donnell get into a heated argument about the Iraq War. As far as I’m concerned, Elisabeth Hasselbeck will never win any argument about anything as long as she keeps raiding General Zod‘s wardrobe; her breasts are too distracting. I couldn’t focus on anything she was saying for more than a second, so it kinded of sounded like she was ranting about a football game she had on her TiVo. I didn’t get it. I have the same problem with the movie Short Cuts, because apparently the scene where Julianne Moore explains what the hell is going on is the scene I always zone out on because her vagina is hanging out. Click continue reading to see the clip (from The View, not Short Cuts).
