Pete Doherty Confirms Power of Lowering People’s Expectations


British artist Pete Doherty is officially the Hero of the Year, 2007.

If the end-all-of-everything are the NME awards.

Now, I like Pete Doherty. A lot. As anyone who knows me can probably imagine, I like pretty much anyone who’s thin, has black hair, smokes a lot, and plays music. I loved his old band; I love his new band.

But even I’m not sure about this one.

For those of you who aren’t much into Brit-pop, Pete Doherty is a pro-musician / on-again-off-again junkie / Kate Moss’s on-again-off-again significant other… He was one of the two dubious geniuses behind the Brit-punk band The Libertines before his descent into total junkiedom and exile by every one except the police and the tabloids.

Hero of the Year?

In related news, Carl Barat is ‘very confused’ by Pete Doherty’s recent win, and had this to say when asked about the possibility of a new project with Pete:

“Yeah, actually. He said we should write a musical, which I really want to do. It’s just a matter of timing and sorting it out.”

He goes on to say that it would be in the vein of The Threepenny Opera, except based more on what they know.

I’m pretty excited; I know that I’ve been desperately in need of a lame non-existent project to get pumped about, and this one is perfect!

For a taste of the magic of The Libertines, and to jump on the bandwagon before it gets any later, check out this VIDEO… and for some very ‘special’ pictures of Kate Moss to get inside the psyche of Pete click HERE…… and HERE.


Shocking New Evidence Suggests that Web Relationships are Potentially Hazardous


Jealousy, Deception, Obsession, Heartbreak, Smut

Ah, the bittersweet joys of online dating.

Sentence comes down on March 19 in the case of Stephen Hailes (48), the jilted online chatter who forwarded naked pictures of his cyber-partner Karen Parker (36) to her husband and every one else in her Hotmail address book.

The ‘crime’ is sending indecent and grossly offensive images by a public communication network; which I guess is illegal in Britain.

More confusing is how this managed to happen in the first place… Not satisfied just sending naked photographs, she also spoke with him on the phone and, most importantly, gave him her e-mail password.

What happened in between that and forwarding involves someone sending flowers, calling constantly, growing jealous, and *gasp* discovering that Karen Parker was not quite web-monogamous, as the term might be.


Forward this to anyone who still thinks that the British have a one-up as far as culture and intelligence goes – the saga of the unemployed single father-of-one, the married grocery-store cashier mother-of-two, and all the heartbreak and scandal that plagues them should cure that fast.

The mad-forwarder faces potential jail time… The scandal-box faces…. um, nothing?

Check out the PG version to see what had this guy losing his mind… right…….. HERE.


Paris Hilton is Enthusiastic… and Topless (Again)


The new images from Paris’ topless (kind of) photo-shoot for the magazine 944 were released, thus – as a serious journalist – I have to talk about them.

Mmm, there’s not that much to say. Paris Hilton is lacking full clothing. She is thin. She also looks like she has to go to the bathroom really badly…

Mostly it’s just hard to think of any actual content to go along with these pictures with my hand under the table…

Desperately trying to soothe my groin from the spontaneous outbreaks of herpes and nine other STDs that exploded in my crotch just from looking at this picture.

For those of us who fondly remember the more wholesome (ever-so-slightly) Paris Hilton, click HERE and reminisce.


PETA is Bringing Subtlety Back to the Art of Protest


PETA’s always had a kind of nervous habit as far as public nudity goes… and by nervous habit I mean young cute naked chicks. Mostly interns, according to PETA’s official site.

You know, I think every company and organization should try and find a way to incorporate nudity into company literature and promotion. Personally, I’m kind of tired of getting pre-approved credit card offers from a business that can’t even manage to talk an easily influenced girl into public nudity.  And what about those people standing around on street corners asking for money to stop global warming?  Just think about it.  Or pizza delivery?  Or the DMV?

And don’t even get me started on Victoria’s Secret. That place is just completely missing the point.
Slightly back on track, PETA doesn’t just get college freshman, they get celebrities naked too – like Alicia Silverstone, Eva Mendes, Steve-O [Yeah, no link there wise guy] Sophie Monk

B-List celebrities aside, PETA’s real legacy, aside from all the actual work it does, are all the averagely cute girls and the occasional stand-out gymnast, vegan, pure-bundle-of-positive, um, hotness that they get to pose. Naked. Here.

Now, I’m going to go heat up some To-Furky…

Because I’m cool like that.


Gary Coleman is Well-Adjusted and Still Happily Married


I know this is some pretty old news, but… get over it.

For those of you who don’t live to read US Magazine – pseesh – the forty year old former child star married a 22 year old non-famous girl in Nevada, and then kept it a secret for 6 months at which point he went on TV saying that they haven’t slept together, and that he loves it when she sells his stuff on eBay.

I hate to dredge this up again, but does any part of this story make sense?

I mean, I understand why Gary would marry her, because she’s pretty good looking (for Gary Coleman), but why keep it a secret?

Unless she didn’t want to become quasi-famous for marrying Gary Coleman… but why? For his commercials for CashCall..?

Or does she just love eBay so much that the concept of selling all of a broke Gary Coleman’s possessions made her vagina foam uncontrollably.

But why no sex? Why talk about it?

HERE’S a picture of the happy couple, and they do look happy. So happy it’s almost sad.


Gemma Atkinson is Some Nice, Tasty Filler


I generally run a tight news machine here, but I felt the need to share a human interest story with you.

Gemma Atkinson is holding some huge bowling balls.

You might not be able to tell from this photograph, but, well… let’s just say that those bowling balls are pretty good substitutes for two other giant round things…

Now, I run an family friendly enterprise here, so that’s as bad as I’m going to get. No naughty Gemma pictures like THIS one, or THIS other one, or THIS other one…

Mmm, now that’s some good filler.
