My ma, the Chinese Squawking Chicken, as you know if you’ve been reading my blog long enough, is all about feng shui and energy and protecting yourself against the bad sh-t. One time we looked at house on the market that turned out to be “dirty”, and for weeks afterwards, that spirit would not leave me. Full Story

GOOP days are normally Thursdays. But today is a special Tuesday GOOP. Because GOOP has launched an App. It will cost you $3.99. If you spend the money though, you’ll get to know New York, and other cities, GOOP styles. There’s a video too. I’m cheap. The only app I’ve ever paid for, so far at least, has been for Bust-A-Move, only my favourite arcade game ever! That was $1. Full Story

Have I mentioned how much I like George Clooney? I think he’s a total pro. I think he’s charming. I think he’s smart. I would definitely want to hang out with him. All of the above. And this, this is why I hate his shenanigans. The Italian Queens and the Wrestling Girls. The timing of his escorts and his campaigns. Full Story

Matt Damon is currently promoting We Built A Zoo. It was once my hope that he, George Clooney, and Brad Pitt would run Oceans during award season. According to the experts, Zoo is not strong enough. Having said that, there’s always the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Golden Globe nominations come down on Thursday. Full Story

Jennifer Garner covers the new issue of InStyle. A LOT of gushing happens in the article. Gushing over her husband, gushing about her marriage. There have been rumours swirling about the Afflecks for years. There have been several reports calling for their split several times. And each time I have written that I don’t see it. Full Story

When Franklin Leonard created the Black List—an annual list of the most popular unproduced scripts circulating around Hollywood—it was a way to see what trends were coming, what sort of projects the execs around town were favoring, and who would be next year’s breakout star.

James Franco is a movie critic. For the Paris Review. And his latest piece is a study of Twilight 4 and The Descendants which... I mean I guess I kind of love him for comparing boring The Descendants to the boring ass mess that was Twilight 4.
