The Entertation Index: August 10, 2009

August 10, 2009

Adams, Amy – People magazine Fun Fact: The Julie & Julia co-star worked as a Hooters waitress when she was 18 to save money for a car.  She quit after saving $900, enough to buy a used Chevrolet then, or a brand new Chrysler now.

Hacked, Twitter and Facebook – Last week hackers hit Twitter and Facebook, along with several other websites, with denial of service attacks, crashing the sites at times and slowing them down for most of the day.  In related news, stuff actually got done at work.

Joe, G.I. – With the movie released last week, let’s remember the cartoon’s classic “Knowing Is Half The Battle” public services announcements, but a little differently.  Watch as many of these as possible (some NSFW due to language).

Lambert, Adam – American Idol’s season eight runner-up reports that his audiences have started tossing erotic toys and sex aids on stage, like red-leather tasseled whip, purple fur whip, and glow-in-the-dark handcuffs.  The bra thrown at his head during “Starlight” was the thing that threw him off, though.  He ignored it because he “didn’t want to condone the behavior.”  It’s OK, Adam, we know.  We’ve always known…

Mays, Billy – An autopsy revealed that Billy Mays may have used cocaine in the days before his death.  No disrespect to the dead, but this looks completely obvious in retrospect: no one not on coke could be that excited about Mighty Putty, OxiClean, and Zorbeez.

Tatum, Channing – Phil Carlo, author of Ice Man: Confessions of a Mafia Contract Killer, cancelled his movie deal with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura when Tatum appeared to be the front-runner for the role of hit man Richard Kuklinski.  Said Carlo, “I told di Bonaventura that this is not the guy to play one of the most feared killers of the 20th Century.”  Bonaventura has had this problem before, when he allegedly tried to cast Clay Aiken as Optimus Prime in Transformers, and suggested Michael Clarke Duncan for The Eiffel Tower in G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra .
