    Oh, like we weren't going to post a clip of Stephen Colbert playing a Wii:





    And another clip: The Big Lebowski re-created using Wii Sports bowling:

    I spent my Thanksgiving weekend visiting my Mum and Dad in New York. On Saturday night, one of my buds from high school days of yore was generous enough to let me tag along with him for a preview performance of Stephen Sondheim and George Furth's Company. The show is a Broadway revival of the 1970 production.

    Dear Britney,

    Hi! So, I've been thinking about you a lot, and there are some things I want to tell you. I'll bet your surprise appearance at the American Music Awards last night was fun. But I heard that you kicked it at Paris Hilton's after-party. This is the second time in, what, a week, that you've rolled with P-Hilt? What exactly are you up to?

    They do. And like the rest of the world, I'm starting to believe maybe this whole TomKat and their TomKitten alien baby union isn't the farce I originally assumed it was. Maybe it's all the breathless People.com coverage (there is even a blog). However. Let's talk about the fact that in Katertot's official wedding photo -- the print that's circulated in all the tabloids, and also the one she'll likely look back on years from now so that she can remember the "happiest day of her life" when she married Loony Cruizy, "the most amazing man in the world" -- the former Girl Down the Creek is slumped over worse than an insecure, pre-braced scoliosis patient.

    Over the weekend, Michael Richards joined George Allen and Mel Gibson as the latest public figure to reveal his secret racism. He was doing standup at the Laugh Factory when someone said something that rubbed him the wrong way. Then the man best-known as Kramer went on a ridiculous tirade saying, among other things, "50 years ago, you'd be hanging from a tree, n****!"

    Starting yesterday (Wednesday,) quite a few people started lining up and camping out for PS3s, which were going on sale tonight (Thursday) at midnight.

    Some time today, Best Buy employees told the crowd that the "official" line would open up at noon today.

    You may have heard by now that the three frat boys who appeared in the movie Borat are suing the film's producers, alleging the producers got them drunk and encouraged them to behave in ways they normally would not behave. Presumably the lawsuit has to do with one of two (or possibly both) things - 1) monetary compensation these gentlemen felt was inadequate, and 2) embarrassment over saying that the country would be "better" if it went back to, um, slavery (among other things).

    We found a video. Apparently Much Music had a camera crew following K-Fed around on Monday, the same day the spearation papers are dated. At some point he receives a text message, leaves production for a while, and returns (albeit acting all depressed.) It's some intense stuff:

    NBC has officially given Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, the Sorkin-ified look at the TV biz, its vote of confidence. Which is interesting, given that the show's got a huge budget and low ratings, and most people who aren't already part of the Cult of Aaron seem to really hate this show. Adding to that, 30 Rock is actually enjoyable, and Friday Night Lights succeeded in the same timeslot. You lose, Sorkin. Get off the stage.

    We're officially less than one week away from the biggest video gaming week of the year: Gears of War and Guitar Hero II. We're pretty sure that both these games will be bigger than anything on Wii or PS3.

    Anyway, the final track on Guitar Hero II is "Free Bird," which might turn off some shred-heads. But seriously, watch this video of someone who played it on expert (specially modifying the demo somehow, don't ask) and nailed a five-star performance:
