6Vanilla Ice Goes Crazy

Here’s the video I was talking about earlier, where Vanilla Ice totally loses his shit and destroys a studio.

This is so funny. I was laughing my ass off in Chez Eggplant watching it.

Thanks to Mary E for tracking it down.

Here’s Prince William and girlfriend Kate Middleton attending William’s graduation ceremony at RAF Cranwell.

They are SO adorable together. I just love Kate. I can’t wait until their wedding.

7Where’s the Cocaine?

Heh. So I noticed that both Tom Arnold and Andy Dick attended the premiere of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and my first thought was “Oh please God let there be a photo of them together.”

And here it is.

And it’s a thing of beauty.

9The Entire Simpson Family Is Delusional

Seriously, it’s like they all think this Ashlee Simpson/Pete Wentz marriage is going to work out.

Says Jess: My sister is overflowing with joy. Pete is an incredible soul. They naturally bring out the best in each other. I couldn’t be happier.”

And says Papa Joe (who’s currently in Georgia watching the Masters tourney with Tony Romo): “[Pete] did ask me [if he could propose]. I told him that I would be honored to have him as part of my family.”


This thing is just waiting to implode.

12Yes Of COURSE Vanilla Ice Was Beating His Wife

Vanilla Ice Domestic Violence Mug Shot Booking Photo, Pictures

Okay. I’m all settled in Seattle now. I slept for like 12 hours last night, which is something I think I really needed to do, and now I’m all set up in my new furnished apartment in Queen Anne. It was the best deal I could get on such short notice, but it’s pretty spacious and all the decorations are red and purple. I’m calling it Chez Eggplant. My lease specifically says no smoking and no pets. I plan to both smoke and, eventually, get a pet. I scoff at authority. I’m so badass.

You know who else is badass?

Vanilla Ice, who was arrested last night on charges of domestic battery. I guess he and his wife were arguing about something, and he pushed her. Ice spent the night in jail, and this morning was ordered to stay away from his wife, although he’s allowed to call her on the phone.

God, does anyone else remember that one thing — I think it was on MTV — where they had, like, Jon Stewart, Janeane Garofalo and Vanilla Ice talking about something, and suddenly Vanilla Ice just lost his shit and started destroying the studio while Jon and Janeane looked on awkwardly? Am I making this up or does someone else remember it?

Anyway, I know there’s no excuse for domestic violence, but seriously how stupid do you have to be to marry this creep?

26Brief Update


So I’m just getting settled into Seattle, which is why posting has been slow.

I rented an apartment in Queen Anne, and I move in tomorrow, so posting should resume as normal by then. Today I explored University Village (explored = shopping) and then went out to Lynnwood to see friends. On this one street in Lynnwood, there is a Red Lobster, an Olive Garden AND a Panda Express. All in one glorious row of culinary genius. I should have rented an apartment on that street. Seriously, whenever anyone’s like “OMG I loooove Spago” my response is “Oh, you clearly haven’t tried the Olive Garden.” No matter what my financial situation, my idea of fine dining will always hover somewhere around lower middle class.

I’m staying right now with my friend Trish, who lives in the South Lake Union area of downtown Seattle. The public transit system out here is called South Lake Union Trolley. This morning, Trish got me a shirt that says “Ride the S.L.U.T.” I am beyond delighted. I love you, Trish!!!

Anyway, sorry posting has been slow the past few days, but thank you all for your comments and support. It means the world to me. Things should be back to normal (well, as normal as they get around here) by tomorrow.
