February 15, 2010

Egos, Alter Paste Magazine releases its list of the top ten musical alter egos in history. Notable inclusions on the list are David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust, David Johanssen as Buster Poindexter and Beyoncé as Sasha Fierce. Left off the list: Prince as songwriter Alexander Nevermind, Eminem as Slim Shady and Richie Sambora as The View’s Joy Behar.

Fox — Twentieth Century Fox, in an effort to broaden its base, has released its first Chinese-language movement for the studio’s China market. The fim is an ensemble comedy entitled Hot Summer Days. Not to be outdone, Fox Television is also currently preparing its first reality television program for Chinese audiences, whereupon a bachelor hoping to find love will choose from two million women.

Lost — Illustrator Lee Bretschneider turned his love of Lost into a series of referential Valentine’s Day cards, and they’re both tremendously funny and creative and a great way to ask someone you love “What the f—‘s up with that polar bear?” I guess I’ll take these, since it looks like I’m never going to get that Gary Unmarried line of cards I’ve been requesting for two years.

Pattinson, Robert — The Twilight star recently shot a sexy photo spread for Details magazine which featured many nude female models — and which prompted Pattinson to tell reporters that it wasn’t fun because, as he put it, “I hate vaginas. I’m allergic to vaginas.” Those crunching and whooshing sounds you hear, respectively, are the dreams of millions of high school girls and the mad dash for Pattinson’s PR people to sell those new mansions and cars they bought.

Renoir, Pierre-Auguste — The Los Angeles County Museum of Art, in conjunction with Paris’ Musée d’Orsay, is currently featuring a display of the work completed by the French impressionist at 71 years old, after Renoir was crippled, weak and unable to walk. The exhibition, which features Renoir artwork from 1912, includes such works as “The Bathers,” “Two Girls Reading” and “Larry King Takes His Drivers’ Test.”

Rex, Tyrannosaurus — A new Discovery Channel program, which aired last night on the network, detailed the ins-and-outs (no pun intended) of how the giant reptiles once may have reproduced. Though confusion will inevitably set in, it should be noted that still frames from the Discovery Channel special should not be confused with current cicrculating nude photographs of Jersey Shore’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.

Tequila, Tila — The model celebrity socialite insane has-been was rushed to the hospital after, she tweeted, that she “fell off her chair and dented her head” — and proceeded to post comments to her Twitter account during the entire ordeal as she was diagnosed by doctors with a concussion. It’s interesting to note, in case you’re wondering, that the tweets of Tila Tequila with a blunt force head injury are nearly indistinguishable from those of Tila Tequila without a blunt force head injury.

World, We Are the — Quincy Jones once again gathered the most famous of the music community together to commemorate the 25th anniversary of 1985’s “We Are the World.” Attached below is the official video. Despite the front half being filled with “meaningful” and “super emotional” looks from the singers, the back half being overrun by autotuning, Jamie Foxx pretending to be a singer and not a comedian and Lil ‘ Wayne taking the Bob Dylan part, it’s actually not all that terrible (?). Regardless of how you feel about it, it’s a good cause and if you haven’t donated, you still should.
