That’s Sort Of My Scene

i am sort of obsessed with Natalie Portman.

Picture 3

Jake Gyllenhaal interviewed that pretty lady in this month’s issue of Interview.

their conversation is amazing – it starts off with talk about Mount Rushmore and includes Natalie’s trip to a laser light show with Jay-Z.

i suggest you read the whole thing (HERE), but if nothing else, enjoy this little gem:

GYLLENHAAL: What song best describes your current state?

PORTMAN: My current state . . . I’m trying to think of a song that feels like sleepwalking. [laughs] I don’t know. I’ve mostly been listening to dirty rap lately. That’s sort of my scene.

GYLLENHAAL: Your affection for dirty rap is something that people really don’t know about you, which I think is fascinating. You do incredible things for the world, and then you listen to just completely obscene hip-hop music.

PORTMAN: Really, really obscene hip-hop. I love it so much. It makes me laugh and then it makes me want to dance. Those are like my two favorite things, so combined . . . I’ve been listening a lot lately to “Wait (The Whisper Song)” by the Ying Yang Twins, where the lyrics are like, “Wait ’til you see my dick”—which is just amazing because it’s whispered. [whispers] “Wait ’til you see my dick . . . ” [laughs] Crazy. So I just listen to it like I’m a five-year-old, like, “Oh my god! I can’t believe he just said that!”

GYLLENHAAL: It’s interesting that you think the lyric “Wait ’til you see my dick” describes your current state. I think people are learning more about you right now then they ever have in an interview. I’m proud of that.

Now, I’m just throwing this out there – but do you think Natalie might want to be my best friend?

Caleb Followill’s voice makes me want to do questionable things.

Caleb Followill’s voice and a dance beat makes me want to do illegal things.

What is in the Water in England?

Hey Great Britain.  You may have the lost that one war to us.

But you’re winning big time in the reality TV singing battle.

watch this guy from the X Factor

Hey Danyl Johnson – I may disagree with how you spell your name.

But I do not disagree with your hot face or the way you sang that song.

get it.

(p.s. How in the world does the UK keep producing so many talented people?

It’s like the size of Idaho.)

Ten Out Of Tenn (v.2)

As I promised…it’s time to recruit the rest of you into some Tennesse pride.

Inglourious Basterds is currently dominating the box office…and i like to think it’s because the main character is from the big TN.


(it might also have something to do with Brad Pitt – but that’s not what I’m here to talk about)


Let’s talk about a couple more of the Ten out of Tenn folks.

today, we’ll focus on the M’s:


It is completely silly how talented the man who goes by Mikky Ekko is.  His voice is out of this world, and his skills in the face painting department are unparalelled.  He sounds like a mix of Jeff Buckley, Magnet, and something from the 80s…or just from another planet.

In other words, nothing I have a problem with.

go HERE to listen to him sing you other pretty tunes.  then go buy it all.


Madi Diaz sings beautiful songs that make my heart happy.  Just go get her music.  you won’t be sorry.

need to be convinced?  go HERE and spend some time with her.  come back and see me in a minute…

…you on board now?  good.

i’m upset you didn’t believe me.  i hope you feel bad.

(more things that are awesome about Tennessee:  Bettie Page!  Ruby Falls!  The Parthenon!  the Jack Daniels distillery!)

I know you’re kind of a celebrity, but

How did this happen?

Heidi Montag | “performing” on the Miss Universe pageant

This is such a miracle in life and I give thanks to God everyday for this once in a lifetime opportunity.

(she looks about as comfortable dancing as I look at a family reunion.)

Love Sucks

This is the biggest Twilight rip-off ever.

…I’ll probably be totally into it.

The Vampire Diaries

Oh, Stefan.

(p.s. Is that the most ridiculous name you’ve ever heard, or what?  I love it)


Speaking of vampires, The Vampire’s Assistant looks unbelievable

I know it’s a slow news day, but…

Really, People Magazine?

Picture 2

Boot Legs?

Meanwhile, who else was impressed with Lindsay Lohan on Project Runway?!

she formed coherent sentences and looked pretty good (if you disregard the lace leggings).

right on, sister.

A few things…

1.  there will be 3 and a half hours of Project Runway happening tonight. i. am. jazzed.  I’ll report back on that later.

UPDATE:  turns out I still love Tim Gunn.  A move to Lifetime didn’t dampen my obsession.  My favorite designer so far?  Ra’Mon.  I love unnecessary apostrophes.  I also love Malvin.  But that’s mainly because his name is Malvin, and his haircut is amazing…and because he takes pictures like this:

Picture 4

i’m not sure about his designs, but i am positive about that picture.  and his lack of a shirt.  I loved Althea‘s clothes…not so sure about her…

We’ll see how I feel as the season progresses.  One thing that’s for sure:  I will not be watching that stupid model show anymore.  What a waste of 30 minutes.  no thanks.

favorite quote from last night:  “I’m Qristal with a Q.  I don’t call it plus size, I call it Plus Sexy.”

2.  go get the new Britt Nicole album.  (I’m not saying that because I was the art director.  I’m saying that because I love pop music.)

3.  Is that supposed to be Mariah Carey?

THIS is so intense and scary.
