17 Again

On the subject of Zac Efron...

Call me a fool, but I think this trailer actually looks good.

"Life As We Know It"

A tragically cancelled-before-it's-time series about teenage angst that is absolutely brilliant.

If you've forgotten about it, or haven't heard of it, go out and watch it immediately. It's basically American Pie the TV series.

It universally speaks to a teenagers unilateral train of thought and penultimate desire to get laid (but don't think it's any teenagers fan to get laid by Kelly Osbourne).

Oh, and while you're at it, check out the person that looked like Zac Efron before Zac did.

Evil Dick

How evil did Dick Cheney look in a wheelchair? Did anyone else see this comparison?

My favorite line: "Vice President Cheney threw his back out while moving boxes this morning."

That's the best you could come up with?

Literary Quote of the Day

"It's not a real place, but then so little of Los Angeles is real, and the parts that are real are the places you don't want to be. Real is for people with guns and hangovers. Real is what you want to avoid. LA believes itself full of magic, and sometimes can even feel that way, but much of this is a mutually agreed upon sleight of hand. You can stand in one place and believe that one day you'll be a movie star - stand somewhere else, and you'll believe that you'll soon be dead. You know that what you see is a trick, but still you want to believe."
