Tape Delay FTL!

For the record, FTL is now my favorite internetism.  It is just so flexible.  Anyway, I go onto this morning and there is a big headline about how Rafael Nadal could be losing in the French Open today (yes, I enjoy watching tennis, I'm a sports junkie okay?), which is historic because he's won 4 straight French Open titles, never losing in the tournament ever.  Anyway, I switch over to NBC for some live coverage, and lo and behold, they've got nothing.  Nadal loses and two hours later we get tape delay coverage.  

Someone explain this to me, please.  The last Olympics taught us that it is better to broadcast live in an unfavorable time-slot rather than do this tape delay crap.  Anyway, I just had to vent, I blame Nadal's loss on the fact that in the picture above the outfit Nadal is wearing would be something that Dirty Harry would wear compared to his outfit today.  Really, neon pink with yellow?  Please tell me that isn't making a comeback... 

Viva Italia!!!

I'm not sure I'd like him to lead my country, but Silvio Berlusconi is my new favorite world leader.  I mean he's been linked to the Mafia, prostitution, played hide and seek with the German Chancellor, and told a reporter (who was a former showgirl) that he'd like to run away with her.  The man obviously doesn't care, yet he still manages to lead Italy.  Now he's in trouble for cavorting with topless young ladies at his villa and the pictures are about to hit the tabloids.  He may not be a policy wonk, but he does seem to enjoy life, although I'm sure he sleeps with one eye open when he's around his wife...

My only question is what would Bill Clinton have been like if he were in charge of Italy??? The possibilities boggle the mind.

Riding the Subway FTL!

Apparently Kevin Bacon's Blackberry was stolen from him by a mugger over the weekend as he rode the subway in NYC.  How can Bernie Madoff steal his money, Kyra Sedgewick (I don' t know how to spell it and am too lazy to look it up) steal the last few years of his prime, and muggers get his crackberry, and yet we can't get anyone to steal his Just for Men hair color kit? There is no justice in this world...

Too Hot Huh?

So Jessica Biel feels that her looks are holding her back, keeping her from getting those solid, meaty roles that would showcase her skills to the world.  Skills found in her new film that couldn't quite find a theater that would screen it.  It is kinda sad, to be honest, when someone's private delusions and insecurities are exposed for everyone to see.  I'm sure Jessica really believes this, forgetting the fact that while she does have a rocking body, she's not in the same league as the really pretty actresses or the really good actresses.  So I guess her career is destined to be a serviceable C-list actress.  Making more money than 99% of the world's population.  Yeah, tough life.  Hey Jessica:

Wanted - Dead or Alive!

1.  Well Farrah's not dead yet, but can we give the lady a little dignity please?  Why do they keep referring to her illness as 'anal' cancer?  Is the term rectal too hard, or is that a different disease?  Either way, the branding of her illness is unfortunate and probably painfully embarrassing.  

2. Megan Fox wants to be taken seriously.  Why is that exactly?  Look princess, your job is to look pretty, okay?  You're not a good actress, your interviews consist primarily of your proclaimations of bi-sexuality and the time you dated a Russian stripper and your off-camera persona courts the paparazzi so blatantly that you are only one or two above Lindsay Lohan.  I get it, your sexuality is sooooooo impressive.  Except for the whole 90210 thing, which is quite frankly embarrassing.  So sit there, let Esquire take strangely unsexy videos of you and just wait for the bell letting you know that your 15 minutes are up.

3.  Lost.  What the hell was I thinking for five years????  When the show premiered, all I could think is that it was a mish-mash of Gilligan's Island and Castaway with some post-21st century angst thrown in.  Thankfully my sister-in-law showed me the error of my ways.  What a great show.  Now, how can we get to February 2010, like right now?

4.  Heather Mills is opening a vegan restaurant.  Wow, how original.  Is she going to serve Linda McCartney entrees?  Or just die and leave poor Paul an even bigger emotional cripple?  Oh, right he ditched her already.  I thought I was in a time loop...too much Lost.

5.  Holly Madison is joining a Vegas burlesque show.  I wonder if she is going to walk in and start channeling Darth Vader,  "The circle is now complete."  Oh well, I guess once you've slept with an octogenarian and Criss Angel, going back to the pole is a step up the career ladder.
