So Jen’s staring in a movie about having a kid without a man, and she’s been staring in a life which has got everyone wondering when she’s going to have a kid without a man (US Weekly/InTouch/Star says it’s supposed to happen two years ago), and that’s pretty radical. Opting for a funnel over a man has only been around for centuries
On your next sick day, instead of sitting through the building tension between John and Marsha on basic cable, consider consulting your Latina neighbor for some viewing tips. If Latina neighbor-less, however, look to El Planeta's 2nd Anuual "Lo Mejor List" (which dropped last week and whose release will be celebrated tonight at Game On! from 6-9 PM) as a viable resource.

Anyone who saw "Bruno" can probably agree that Sasha Baron-Cohen's
second feature-length film was, well, let's just say it was no "Borat."
Perhaps there's some truth to the whole "too much of a good thing"
adage...Bruno being the good thing and 2 hours being way too much.
Especially after the unprecedented smash hit that was "Borat."
So then it is true: Girls reaching puberty faster than ever
It's no exaggeration to say that last weekend could go down as the most memorable few days in Boston hip-hop history (especially if you count the cherry-topping Public Enemy shebang at House of Blues last night). On Friday, Slaine shot the video for "99 Bottles" at a sold-out show at Church; on Saturday, M-Dot and Wiz Khalifa rocked for thousands on Government Center; and for three straight days and nights b-boys and b-girls from across the planet battled in the Floorlords-hosted United Styles 6, and celebrated the hometown crew's 29th anniversary.
Last week, we touched upon the net neutrality issue to help explain and add context to the buzz around a forthcoming Google-Verizon deal. That "deal," as you may have heard, was announced on Monday.
The first thing to note is that it's not an actual deal.
The Discovery Channel must be trying to take some of the heat off "Whale Wars'" Captain Pete Bethune
by instating a far-nuttier figure in their roster. That, or someone
slipped something funny into the network head's green tea at the last
creative meeting. Those are the only two explanations that we can come
up with for the creation of "Sarah Palin's Alaska," an eight-part nature
mockumentary documentary hosted by none other than the legendary igloo princess
Are we going to live-chat last night's Mad Men? Does Howdy Doody have a wooden dick? No recap here for the spoiler-averse, but we will be around to discuss the episode around 12:30. In the meantime, feel free to watch a Godzilla movie or knock that bird's nest down from the ceiling. Suggested topic for discussion: which real-world events (if any) will impact the SCDP gang's lives now that we're in 1965?
In recent weeks, top officials from the Federal Communications Commission have held closed-door meetings to negotiate with the country’s biggest communications companies and online service providers on how the Internet should be regulated. In a statement today, the FCC said it had called off those talks, saying the effort "has been productive on several fronts, but has not generated a robust framework to preserve the openness and freedom of the Internet."
By now you've all probably heard the news that The Big Aristotle has touched down in Boston. And while the Shaq of yesteryear (pictured above)
would've launched us into the Miami Heat stratosphere of odds-on
favorites to knock off the Lakers, there's really no downside to this
man of many names accepted a two-year contract worth far less than what he's
accustomed to -- somewhere in the vicinity of $19 million less than the 20
he banked with the Cavs last season.
If you think that the latest advancement in environmentally sound automobiles is totally full of shit....you're right. Introducing the Bio-Bug: a car fuled entirely by human excrement. The Bio-Bug, the brainchild of a team of British engineers aided by a sewage waste plant, is a converted VW Beetle that runs off of the methane produced by human waste.
So. Here's the trailer for a heart-wrenching documentary about Katie Cruise née Holmes and the unimaginable horrors she's experienced since leaving Dawson's Creek and falling in with the Church of Cruise, ahem, Scientology. This brave documentary, shot to appear as if it's actually a studio production, follows Katie from her very first encounter with the Church, through her ill-fated marriage to Tom Cruise, and ends with her ultimate struggle to escape from a life of enslavement and forced sexual union with a known psychotic.
