Goon >Love Guru

Then again, it’s not hard to be better than The Love Guru. Woah wait. Wasn’t Jessica Alba in The Love Guru. Was she forced at gunpoint? Because, you know, she’s all discerning and sh-t right? Anyway, there’s another Canadian who is making a movie about hockey. And, well, it sounds awesome. Full Story

Coldplay Christmas Lights

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 25, 2010 07:42:34 November 25, 2010 07:42:34

I wrote about Christmas Lights twice yesterday. It’s because I’ve been thinking about them a lot. About that time of year I keep going on about when being optimistic seems...easier. I guess it really started when I was in London a couple of weeks ago. I’d never seen the Christmas lights on Oxford and Regent Streets before. Full Story

November 25, 2010 – Smutty Shout-Outs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 25, 2010 07:24:46 November 25, 2010 07:24:46

Happy Birthday Noel with love from your bitch-in-crime Susan who can’t imagine life without you when it comes to ragging on RoboBride! And for Stacey and your very particular list of requests: the Cowboys & Aliens poster featuring Daniel Craig’s ridiculous ass, Daniel Craig’s moustache photobombing Swifty (one of my favourite’s too) which fulfills two in one, and with Catherine Tate for Comic Relief (I always, always loved that her character’s name was Elaine). Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Last year I wrote about a book called The Worst Date Ever by Jane Bussmann (click here for a refresher), the true story of a girl who, essentially, couldn’t stand interviewing Ashton Kutcher (and the like) anymore and instead ended up in Uganda but only because she really wanted to go on a date with a hot human rights activist.  Read Full Intro

On Love & Other Drugs

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 24, 2010 15:29:38 November 24, 2010 15:29:38

As noted in my Colin Firth article earlier about The King’s Speech, I don’t know what it is about this time of year that makes me (we?) so much more receptive to the heart-swellers. It’s American Thanksgiving. And while I am not American and already celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving, it’s like a switch that gets flipped, perhaps around the same time as Christmas lights (cheese!), when “feelgood” becomes an unconscious motivation, when it’s easier for petty bitches like me to want the best for other people. Full Story

Harry Potter money buys toilet seats

Favourite photos of the day. Rupert Grint was photographed at Heathrow today carting along a Japanese Toilet Seat. No, for real. According to the photo agency, this Japanese Toilet “offers features such as slow closing, electronic bidet, and warm heated seat”. OMG. Is this what I need for my poo problem? Part of it is totally psychological for me. Full Story

Play the chords lower

Did you download Kanye West’s new album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy? I did. And I’m really into it. Haven’t been able to go through it over and over again yet, but on first play it’s good. Some would even say it’s great. Even the critics. Almost unanimously. Which is an accomplishment in and of itself since, well, he’s not exactly Mr Popular with the media. Full Story

Not a cash bar wedding

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 24, 2010 12:44:07 November 24, 2010 12:44:07

I’ve bitched about it before: cash bar weddings. Relax. I’m not saying everyone has to pay for a splashy wedding. I’m not saying that if you marry in the church hall where your parents used to play and it’s a lovely, intimate affair that this applies to you. I’m just saying if you’re inviting a hundred + people, and that dress is a statement, and the venue is somewhere supposedly all class, and your wedding photography is choreographed like an advertisement for stationary, a cash bar wedding is the total sh-ts. Full Story

Leighton getting paid

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 24, 2010 12:12:45 November 24, 2010 12:12:45

As you know, Blake Lively is considered the real superstar among the Gossip Girl actors, even though Leighton Meester’s Blair Waldorf is the heart and soul of the show. Since Leighton’s cut of fame is inexplicably – tits aside – so much smaller than Blake’s, it always makes me happy to see her getting some play, though I’m still not sure if this constitutes pity-happy or real-happy. Full Story

Harry Potter & the Reusable Grocery Bag

Lainey Posted by Lainey at November 24, 2010 10:00:54 November 24, 2010 10:00:54

My trunk is filled with reusable grocery bags. Maybe too many. I worry that that defeats the purpose. But there’s a smugness to be derived from pulling up at the cash register and declining a plastic option, non? I mean, I can see my own smugness when it happens. And I can’t seem to stop myself. Full Story
