I love a good celebrity feud, even if the celebrities are political pundits. Like the classic romps between Olbermann and O’Reilly/ Hannity that involve some level of irreverence or blatant disregard to professional journalism; yet, I still can’t see them doing what Meghan McCain and Laura Ingraham are doing.
Don't you just hate it when you pee yourself, and then have to endure the excruciating hassle of taking your underwear off, putting it in the washing machine, adding the right amount of soap, and - ugh - pushing the 'start' button? Not to MENTION all the aggravation of putting them in the dryer!
Well, lazy incontinents, your problems have been solved.
All Irish and non-Irish revelers alike faced stricter sanctions and harsher penalties this year for party-hardying throughout last weekend.
There are too many games out right now that I don't have time to play. This is the most common lament when the average entry in your entertainment medium of choice takes 15 hours to experience. Killzone 2, GTA: Chinatown Wars, Halo Wars, Resident Evil 5, Resistance: Retribution, Mad World, and more have all been released this month. Add these to the dozen or so games from the fall season that I wish I had played, plus the 50-ish from the last 15 years that I would love to pick up some day, and it becomes clear that I will never get to play all the games I would like to play. It also doesn't help that I am still engrossed in Fallout 3.
Anyway, due to everyone who would normally be writing interesting things about video games being busy actually playing video games, there is not much to write about this week, so I guess I'll just talk some more about Resident Evil 5. Sigh.
46 percent of Boston teens say Rihanna "was responsible" for Chris Brown -- allegedly -- beating the shit out of her, according to a new survey of 200 local youths by the Boston Public Health Commission. (See the photo at tmz.com.) What the hell is wrong with this town?
-- My favorite comment about Britney Spears's new video at BSweekly, where I get all my hot Britney news.
Common Art, a weekly faith-based open studios, provides poor and homeless folks space and materials to make art. Each week between 10 am and 2 pm on Wednesday, these artists gather at the studio space in Emmanuel Church in Boston. The time serves as a reprieve for its participants: a chance to concentrate fully on a drawing, an acrylic or perhaps a puppet construction.
As it turns out,
Boston and Cambridge
have a thriving hip-hop academic overclass to which I don’t belong. It’s
probably because I spend my time in the actual rap community and at underground
won’t complain when the boom bap intelligentsia flies an idol of mine into
town. Plus - Harvard’s W.
MASTERPIECE THEATER10 years agoMarch 12, 1999 | Peter Keough said so long to Stanley Kubrick.“Who could imagine 2001 without Stanley Kubrick? In an irony he would have appreciated, one of the greatest filmmakers of the last half-century died of undisclosed causes at the age of 70, just shy of the millennium he celebrated in his groundbreaking, forever baffling apocalyptic epic, 2001: A Space Odyssey (1967).
If there's one topic that prudent
writers avoid, it's that which might incite extremists on either pole of the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In fact, I'm almost nervous to call anyone an extremist
- even anonymously; no doubt I'll be getting emails from both sides accusing me
of sleeping with the enemy.
What happens when the country's most litigious conservative butts political heads with the man who champions pot and prostitution more fervently than a horny frat boy on 4/20? A fistfight in the audience of Boston's theatrical mastodon, The Wang Theatre.
Ann Coulter and Bill Maher came to town last night to inaugurate the theater's 2009 "Speaker Series: The Minds That Move The World,” each flapping their caricatured cake-holes about America's political landscape before engaging in a yawn-fest "debate" that was marred by technical snafus; an awkward, ill-informed moderator; and - what proved to be the most exciting element of the evening - some crazy-ass heckling, courtesy of drunk dipshits.
While the weather is slowly becoming less frightful, desires of gooey, frosty ice cream creep back onto the tongues of Bostonians. Find out the best and most unique places around town for your spring-time treat.
This may be old news to some, since rumors of a music game based on the career of The Beatles have been surfacing steadily since late last year, but The Beatles: Rock Band has finally been given a solid release date.This is good news because:
1. Rock Band is the tits.
2. The Beatles are the tits; and,
Sure, he was being interviewed by a journalist from the capo-di-tutti-capi of old-media elites (what, was he gonna tell the New York Times that he gets his economic news from Perez Hilton?). But still, with the fishwrap industry taking at least as big a shipment of fail as Wall Street these days, it's kind of sweet to hear the Leader of the Free World say something nice about newspapers.
