I learned stuff this week, because apparently life isn't about the Prada, it's all about the learning... yeah, whatever...
1- When the idiot director of The Hangover 2 hired Mel Gibson for a one-day cameo, the crew revolted and the homophobic misogynistic anti-Semitic lunatic was fired and replaced with Liam Neeson. Glad he is gone. Uh, the director thought this was a good idea why? Okay I knew Gibson was a douchebag before now, glad to see Hollyweird is figuring it out and deeming him commercial kryptonite, career kaput.
2- The Sony Walkman is officially dead. Though I haven't owned one for decades, that makes me nostalgic and a bit sad.
3- The Israeli version of Dancing with the Stars will feature a same-sex couple.
4- Glee + Rocky Horror = Anticipated awesomeness.
5- Yesterday, Canada's biggest city Toronto took a step back in time and elected Tea-Party-esque racist homophobe Rob Ford as mayor. Really, people?
6- There are five thousand janitors with PhDs in the USA.
7- My former TV favourite, Brothers and Sisters, had lost its mojo so much that I fell asleep during this week's episode. And we get it at 8 PM, people. I fell asleep during a show at 8 effing PM. How sad is that?
8- New York's Mayor Bloomberg, who fought to overturn term limits in order to get his own third term in office, now supports term limits again.
9- India has a car company called Tata, which builds a Nano car that looks like a Smart Car, which sells for about two thousand dollars US.
10- The Good Wife Julianna Margulies was actually third choice for the role, as the network had apparently offered the role to Helen Hunt and Elisabeth Shue. Both great actresses, am glad they said no --- Ms Margulies is superb in a smart and fascinating role, in a great show.
11- The kid on Three and a Half Men makes 300 grand an episode. THE KID! Oy we all chose the wrong careers...
