I still don't know if I'll have a place to sleep, or if I'll be able to see any films.

Sundance is screening Tub, a short film about a man who impregnates a bathtub.
Did anyone else catch Saw on Bravo?
Gaspar Noé (Irreversible) will shoot his next film, a "pornographic melodrama," in 3-D.
The same Gaspar Noé cried TWICE during Avatar.
"I cried when the tree caught fire. And I cried when they were in the jungle and everything was glowing."
Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel is only $13 million away from matching the $217 million gross of the first movie.

There are no popular boys who say, "I don't want to hurt my family anymore and I love Jesus, so I am going to stop doing gay things with guys in the bathroom."

"Dicks and Noses" by Hip Hop Hoodíos
I love that Uncle Kracker is an adult contemporary pop artist. "Smile" = Daniel Powter's "Good Day."
The perks of being a Wallflower: Not one, not two, but three Marlenas.
"Purple Rain" is begging for Dustin Kensrue to cover it.
I wanted to caption an image of an awkward boner "so hard," but no one I know has even heard the Rihanna song.
I need sluttier friends.

All I ever see anymore is American Idol finalists singing the National Anthem. Jordin Sparks sang it at the NFC Championship Game.
This year, Jordin Sparks sang the National Anthem at the AFC Championship Game, while reigning American Idol Kris Allen sang it at the NFC Championship Game.
I saw a Colts fan holding a sign that read "D•FENCE." If you bother writing out "fence," why not just write the whole word?
Is anyone excited to see The Who? Seems like a golden opportunity for counter-programming. Fox should pay Justin Bieber to perform a short set bisected by the trailer for Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.
Fox's ads for 24 need more Katee Sackhoff's subplot.
TNT promotes ESPN's NBA telecasts and vice versa. Why can't the NFL's broadcast partners do the same? "Check local listings," like the Pro Bowl is some daytime talk show.

I wonder how Rush Limbaugh feels about Visa supporting the world.
Idea: Enter the New Jersey Nets in this year's NCAA tournament as the 65th team. Play-in game intrigue! A potential first round match-up against Kentucky!
Jon: The woman to my right ordered a Caesar salad with Ranch instead of Caesar dressing.
Jon: Togo's' Caesar salad is already inauthentic, and without Caesar dressing, it's just…lettuce and croutons.
Chet: Well, Ranch salad is not a menu item.
Jon: I'm surprised seared ahi tuna isn't one.
Subway Promotion Idea: Hot Sub Time Machine. For a limited time, try any foot-long Subway Melt for just $2.55 (≈$5.00 in 1986).
Pizza Hut's current promotion is "Any Pizza, Any Size, Any Crust, Any Toppings" for $10. Who would order any size other than large?
Applebee's new slogan is "There's no place like the neighbourhood."
1. Yes, there is Chili's.
2. What a clunky slogan. What was wrong with "Eatin' good in the neighbourhood?"
the neighbourhood is where the heart clogs
I dreamt that I bit into a cupcake and realized too late that it was attached to the hook of a giant fishing rod.

Another NFL playoff weekend was filled of ho-hum games. My initial thought was that history will prove the best matchup took place in L.A.
However, upon further review we discover that Boob-Off 2010 was more of a blowout than Cowboys/Vikings. Mariah Carey's are akin to the team that had a nice season, but once they faced a real opponent it was clear they were outclassed. On the flip side, Christina Hendricks… sheesh. She's more like a caricature of a human than an actual human. Hyperbole barely covers how barely covered she is.
Every time she goes out in public, 4 more college freshman become advertising majors.
Watching Conan's last few shows is like hanging out with a friend who's on death row but is freed as his sentence date quickly approaches. I watch it and think to myself, "If I'm to die in my mid-70s (how about it, God?), I wouldn't want to know now, but I would like to know one month prior." One of the rare advantages of being on death row.
Will Ferrell sang "Never Can Say Goodbye" on Conan's first Tonight Show. Will Ferrell is a soothsayer. On Friday, if pattern holds, smart money says he'll sing Tina Turner's "The Best" or Joe Esposito's "You're the Best". Or 311's "I'll Be Here Awhile". Heh.
Regarding Conan's offers to star in a porno, I think porn production companies get more notoriety from halfheartedly offering roles to people (especially those who would never do porn) than they do from making actual pornography.
This poster for The Tooth Fairy led me to this poster for The Game Plan, which led me to this poster for The Game Plan, which led me to this poster for The Pacifier, which led me to this poster for Mr. Nanny, which led me to this poster for Suburban Commando, which led me to assemble this:
Paramount greenlit a sequel to Paranormal Activity with the director of Saw VI at the helm. It will be released in October against Lionsgate's 3-D Saw VII.
All that's missing is Scary Movie 5.
Hustler's parody porn line-up for 2010-11 includes:
» This Ain't Curb Your Enthusiasm XXX
» This Ain't Avatar XXX
» This Ain't Glee XXX
» This Ain't The Cable News XXX
» This Ain't The Soup XXX
My guess is the pornographic Soup parody incorporates footage of other pornographic parodies a parody porn clip show.
This DVD is packed with Bam [Margera] and his crew playing paintball and skate boarding in action packed sex scenes. [source]
Huntington Beach may outlaw beer pong.
Luke Hamman, 24, of Huntington Beach, said the ban isn't right.
"They shouldn't ban it. Beer pong is awesome."
Disneyland is offering two free nights if you book three nights at its hotel and buy a five-day ticket package.
What a terrible deal. You need two days (at most) to experience Disneyland, and then you're stuck there, forced to eat losses if you wish to venture outside Anaheim.
James Cameron celebrated his Golden Globe wins at Tom Colicchio's Craft restaurant.
When he sat down to eat, he grabbed a piece of steak with his bare hands, pausing only to watch a clip of his acceptance speech playing on a TV behind him.

Blog Idea: My Year of Wii Shovelware.
I tuned in to Raw and saw Napoleon Dynamite, The Miz, a giant, a midget, D-Generation X, and Don Johnson walk to the ring for the main event.
apparently they have a lot of inanimate objects that wrestle
someone wrestled a poster?

In Mexico, the Tooth Fairy is a Tooth Mouse. Mexican children leave baby teeth for El Ratón in a trash can beside the toilet.
I flipped to the Texas vs. Kansas State game on ESPN and heard Brent Musberger welcome viewers who just finished watching 24.
This mission is not a children's game. Vin Diesel is The Babynator
I had a dream that I didn't have to work today.
I just found out they made a Ninja Turtles TV movie where the Turtles from the relatively dark 2003 cartoon meet the Turtles from the goofy 1987 cartoon and by the end they meet the Turtles from the original Mirage comic book. [source]
Turtle Primer! How did I miss this?
NBC owns and is reportedly keeping the intellectual property behind the characters and recurring comedy bits Conan O'Brien originated during his 16-plus years on NBC.
Sources close to him, however, said he is not interested in taking the Masturbating Bear and "In the Year 3000" with him.
It is unclear whether Robert Smigel or NBC controls Triumph the Insult Comic Dog. I assume Smigel, as he also used Triumph on Comedy Central's TV Funhouse. Viacom owns Comedy Central and CBS.
The guy who plays Star-Burns on Community collaborated with Smigel on Saturday TV Funhouse.

» The boy in Jurassic Park plays one of the three leads in The Pacific, the follow-up to Band of Brothers (Mar 14).
» MTV is reviving Greg the Bunny's sidekick Warren the Ape for a reality show parody following a D-list, often debauched, out-of-work celebrity puppet attempting to get back into Hollywood's good graces (Jun).
I'm not sure how MTV can produce a second season of Jersey Shore without recasting.
If the same cast returns to Seaside, they'll behave like celebrities, indulge cameras and attract fame-whores galore.
My solution: Recast and fast-track a Real World/Jersey Shore Challenge.

No NFL team has ever played in a Super Bowl in its home stadium.

Google should create a Super Bowl ad for the Nexus One. Emulate Apple's "1984" ad with a Blade Runner conceit.
