SamLo Says No to Palin

Lindsay and Samantha may not have openly come out as a couple yet, but they're already issuing joint press releases, using the PR rep of choice among young Hollywood's elite: MySpace blogs. They've taken time out of their busy schedules to remind people that you don't have to have, ya know, a Princeton education to realize that Sarah Palin's an idiot. Tutoring on the set of Disney films is really all it takes. UH OH! Current mood: shocked I really cannot bite my tongue anymore w...

R.I.P. David Foster Wallace

On Wednesday, I made an obscure reference to Infinite Jest, which is probably the one and only time I've referenced the works of David Foster Wallace -- a literary hero of mine -- in the history of anything I've written ever.

And he would be silent except to occasio...

"Our goal is to transfer the success we have had in Cambodia to Ethiopia where people are needlessly dying of tuberculosis, a curable disease, and HIV/AIDS, a treatable disease," Angelina said in a statement. "It is our hope when Zaha...

Mischa Barton’s Look: Love It or Leave It?

Ahhhhhhhh ha ha ha ha ha ha! I'm totally just kidding. Leaving Chateau Marmont on Saturday, with one of those guys who's not only cool enough to carry a pack of Parliaments, but has reached that elusive pinnacle of cool where you can carry a pack of Parliaments upside-down while showing your appreciation for the original distributors of tobacco by wearing a little piece of Pocahontas around your neck.
