Is Scientology better then botox?

I just watched crazy Tom Cruise on Jay Leno & I am amazed at how young he looks. Seriously he looks like he did in Risky Business! WTF? I don't know if it is the haircut or some special space alien stuff, but it is working.

What I want for Christmas...

Happy HootchieWeen

I realized today that Halloween is just an excuse for girls to dress like whores & get away with it. I saw girls today in Halloween outfits that were so revealing & slutty that they would never walk out of the house dressed like that on any other day. It doesn't bother me, I am merely pointing out a fact!

Powderfinger at the ARIA's

In case you missed. I have to say they are my fave Aussie band.

NBC goes green!

Starting next week, NBC will go Green! YAY. Many of their shows next week will have green story lines & will feature eco-friendly guest stars such as Al Gore. This makes me happy especially since I just watched An Inconvenient Truth & I am frightened for the world.

Congrats to "Our Keith"

Keith Urban also won an ARIA (basically the aussie version of the Grammy's) for best country album & he thanked his wife. How boring. He should have thanked me! I paid for tix to see him in concert twice. What has Nicole done for him? :)
In case you missed it:

Why Americans are fat

I went to a local Italian restaurant & ordered Chicken Parmigiana. It came with a side of spaghetti which easily could have fed 2 people. BUT the chicken parm came, & it was FOUR chicken cutlets. Seriously, FOUR. Is that really necessary? It is actually gross. I brought most of it home & had chicken parm for the next 2 days!

Walking in a Straight line...

Right up to the podium to get their 5 ARIA awards! Congrats to Silverchair. If you missed the performance, here it is:

Waffle House War

Kid Rock was arrested in Atlanta after a fight broke out in a Waffle House. Who gets into a fight at a Waffle House? That is like the happiest place in the world. They have all kinds of waffles & toppings. Did they run out of syrup? Jeez.

Dumbledore is...F-I-E-R-C-E!

So JK Rowling "outed"Dumbedore last week. Why is this a surprise? He wore robes with glitter on them & never had a woman in his million years on earth. (kidding) I love that she said this bc it opens kids up to the fact that there are all different lifestyles out there. It is still the same story that is has always been. The idiots that are complaining about it are prob the same ones that never let their kids read the books bc they thought it promoted "witchcraft". Please people, get over it. If I were JK I would have just said, "Too bad you have a problem with it, I am going to back & count my billions now." Instead she had a great response which was: "It has certainly never been news to me that a brave and brilliant man could love other men. He is my character. He is what he is and I have the right to say what I say about him." I say you-go-girl!

Not LOST enought to find a BAR

Daniel Dae Kim was busted for a DUI in Hawaii. This is the 3rd cast member to get a DUI. WTF people? It is an island, it's not that big. You can probably walk or canoe home for God's sake. Seriously what is wrong with this cast??

When stage mom's attack...

God help us all. I am trying not to write about Britney but I am making an exception bc this is about her Mom, or Mama, if you will. Apparently Lynne Spears is writing a book about Britney that will be called "Pop Culture Mom: A Real Story or Fame & Family in a Tabloid World." Give me a break. It is bad enough your daughter is a hot mess, but now you are going to write a book about it? These are what I think she will name the chapters:
1. How to push young girls into the spotlight for the fame that I always wanted for myself
2. Growing up Country Y'all
3. Disney makes dreams come true! From a a Mess, in 10 short years
4. How to avoid: public head shavings, marrying a backup dancer & no pantie photos

Disney High School Musical 3

If you are a 12 year old girl, or someone much older who wishes you were a 12 year old girl bc if you were it would be totally ok to have a crush on Zac Efron as opposed to being a woman over 30 & having a crush on Zac Efron which is almost creepy & weird, here is a funny clip from Saturday Night Live of their version of DHSM 3:

Kath and Kim and Molly

Molly "superstar" Shannon has been cast as Kath in the American version of Kath & Kim. She is very funny & I can see her playing this role perfectly. However I still really can't see that show working here, but I guess you never know!

Beyonce needs to go Bye Bye for a bit

Ok I am so Beyonce'd out right now. She is in commercials for Pepsi, American Express, L'Oreal, & now she is coming out with the "B-Phone" from Samsung. It will let you download her pic's, songs & video's. What is next? Beyonce Pampers??

Still living in a material world!

Madonna is supposedly ending her contract with Warner records & signing a new deal worth $120 million with Live Nation.
I can't really wrap my mind around that amount. She is already worth hundreds of millions, to get $120 million on top of that seems a bit much! She could buy all of Malawi with that. (Seriously though I hope most of that $ goes to charity)

Star Trek info

Just f.y.i., "Our" Eric Bana will be in the new Star Trek movie.
That's all.

Sports news of the week

Congrats to England for beating France for the semi-final of the Rugby World Cup. Another great last minute win from Jonny Wilkinson. (I still haven't forgiven him for beating Australia in the 2003 World Cup, but I have to admit he is h-o-t.)

Goonies never say die....until the sequel

Supposedly they are working on a sequel for Goonies. Ugh. I don't want a sequel. I still want to think of Mouth, Data, Chunk, Mikey, etc as kids living in the Goon docks! And besides if they were going to do a sequel shouldn't they have done it about 14 years ago?

Environmental tips of the week

* You don't need an actual yellow pages phone book bc you know you look up phone numbers on line now! So call to stop delivery of the actual book. (10% of garbage at the dump is old phone books)
*Take your car to the car wash instead of doing it yourself. The car wash uses about 100 less gallons of water then if you did it at home.

Celebrity Rap Star

Ok it's no secret that I like bad reality tv, but I am embarrassed to admit I watch MTV's Celebrity Rap Star. However each week I am blown away by how good Shar Jackson is. (Remember she was K-Fed's girlfriend & baby mama before Britney) Anyway this week they had to write their own rap. You have to watch Shar's performance, the last line of her rap is classic!

Aussie tv in the US

So for Aussie's in the US, or Americans who may be interested, here are 2 shows you may want to know about:
1-Australian Princess started airing last night on the WE tv channel. 14 Aussie girls enter a competition to become a "Princess". It will be on Tuesday nights at 10 PM
2-South Sydney Story is a documentary about Russell Crowe buying a Sydney Rugby team. It starts tonight & airs on Wednesday on the Versus tv channel.

Kid Nation

So this new reality show, Kid Nation, basically drops a bunch of kids off in a "ghost town" where they have to live on their own, fend for themselves, cook, do chores, etc without any adult supervision. Parents had to sign this waiver basically that the network is not responsible for anything from death to avalanches. This is not what disturbs me. What bothers me is that the clip that I saw showed a 10 year old girl that said this, "I don't do dishes. I am a beauty queen." OMG. If this kid is saying this at 10, what is she going to be like at 20??

A Zac Sandwich

Here is a pic of Zac Efron & the Veronicas. I actually have a photo of me with the Veronica's. The sad thing is I think Zac is a prettier girl then I am!

Talk about Liar, Liar Pants on Fire!

Recently in Georgia, a man's pants caught on fire because of the ipod nano he was carrying in his pocket. Apparently the battery exploded & ignited. I know a lot of guys say they have a "fire in their pants" but that is ridiculous!

Kylie's new film clip (video)

Here is the link to Kylie's new video, 2 Hearts. I have to say I am not in love with the song. :(
But maybe it will grow on me.

Back to Bundoora...

Peter Helliar has been announced as the new host of Triple M's breakfast show. Yay! He is my other fave Aussie comedian. I already listen to Hughsey & Kate and Hamish & Andy every morning. Now I am going to have to fit Pete into the mix also. Listening to aussie radio is becoming a full time job!

Australian Hotel of the Year!

Congrats to the Lion Hotel in North Adelaide Australia! It was named "Australian Hotel of the Year!" (Only my Adelaide friends will find the next part funny so anyone else feel free to stop reading now) Ok I think the Lion won bc it has that big Casino in the back! And the secret caves underneath....Oh, & now my ADL friends will die, but....I had no idea it was actually a hotel, I thought it was just a pub....Seriously.

Heather is appalled?

I read that Heather from ROL was appalled how they edited the final episode. She said it made her look bad. I think she should be appalled at the bad 80's hair & stripper dresses! But, to quote her, "I'm not a playa, I'm a congratulator." I liked her & thought she should have wound up with Bret, esp since she tattooed his name on her neck.

I am on fire this week

This past week I randomly saw the following celebrities: Bret Ratner, Sophia from MTV's Road Rules 10, & Willem Dafoe. Ok, I guess Sophia doesn't really count but she was on a tv show. I must admit when I saw Willem I was tempted to look up into to the sky & scream, "Look everyone, it's Spiderman!" (But don't worry, I didn't embarrass myself!)

Montana is on fire...

Hannah Montana that is! Miley Cyrus (the 14 year old from Disney's Hannah Montana & daughter of Billy Ray Cyrus) is currently the hottest concert ticket in the country. Her tickets are going for more then Justin & Beyonce's. She will never have to work again. That breaks my heart, my achy breaky heart. At 14 I was babysitting for $5 an hour. Oy.

Rock of Love is over, I have no reason for living...

So tonight is the reunion show! I can't wait. I am sure everyone would have watched the finale by now. I love that Bret actually asked the final 2 girls if they could both be his girlfriends instead of him having to choose just one!

Naked for any reason is good....

Naked for a cause is even better! ;) The AFL & NRL have teamed up & made a calendar to raise money for breast cancer. (For Americans, AFL is Aussie Rules Football & NRL is rugby, so basically they are all hot Aussie guys) Anyway not only is this good eye candy, (see exhibit A) but it is for a good cause!
