Oh, TCAs.  I forgot you were on, you hilarious street party.   There should maybe be more here to be critical of, but why, when it’s all so much fun?  Because all the ambitions and strategies are so naked and forced and everyone has just been through a metamorphosis and it’s SO DAMN CUTE. Full Story

Is it unfair of me to hold this against him? Along with the pretentious instrumenting in New York? Sometimes I wonder if I’m starting to go off Ryan Gosling because of how people feel about him. Like the ridiculous sightings (every day he’s in a new city and people are freaking out), and the whole Easter bunny Full Story

I am not a tall person. In my head I am 5 ft 5. At least. In reality I am 5 ft 3. And I can accept this. (Some people - ahem, Sasha - cannot separate their height fantasies from their height reality.)

Let’s start with Carly Rae Jepsen who was the big winner last night at the MuchMusic Video Awards in Toronto. As I’ve been mentioning, mostly in Smutty Tingles lately, I am not tired of that song yet. Still. Not even close. In fact, all I want to do is listen to it over and over again especially when I’m running which is why I have to resist the urge to just have it on repeat on my iPod. Full Story

Here are Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds out in New York earlier this week picking up some groceries. Is that pie crust? Looks like it says Pie Crust, or Pie Something, on the box.

Brad Pitt was in Germany today reportedly to check out the Documenta. As you know, he’s apparently become something of an art collector. Word is he was granted a private viewing. The way he’s wearing the sh-t out of that shirt, his gait, the confidence…you want to know why Brad Pitt? Look at him. Full Story
