The Entertation Index: February 24

February 24, 2011

Facebook — After many attributed the success of the recent Egyptian revolution to organizational efforts brought about on Facebook, an Egyptian man has named his daughter “Facebook” as a tribute to the social networking site. Sources close to the man, however, say that since the baby’s birth he almost never checks up on his son MySpace and he doesn’t even talk to his daughter Friendster anymore.

Gatsby, The Great — Always tried to find time to read F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic The Great Gatsby but couldn’t tear yourself away from the video game console? Today’s your lucky day. Now you can play The Great Gatsby as an NES throwback, thanks to some brilliant web developers. Consider your Thursday spoken for — and as a bonus, you can consider it culture.

King, Larry — The former CNN personality has gone from behind a desk to in front of a live audience with a national tour of his one-man autobiographical show Larry King: Standing Up, which will trace King’s life from his childhood to his career as a broadcast journalist. The show will be twenty-six hours long and, according to those who have seen the play, some highlights of the first act include a harrowing pterodactyl attack, a hilarious story about meeting Charlemagne and tales from King’s youth as a picpocket on the streets of Victorian London.

Lohan, Lindsay — In the ongoing court proceedings against actress Lindsay Lohan involving the grand theft of a $2,000 necklace, a judge in the case announced to Lohan today that even if she accepts a plea bargain, the sentence will include jail time — and quipped that “I don’t care if you’re Lindsay Lohan.” Upon hearing this, Lohan looked the judge over and retorted that she didn’t care “if he was on his way to his college graduation or something.”

Sheen, Charlie — This past weekend, the Two and a Half Men star reportedly hosted a private screening of his beloved 1989 film Major League for several actors and professional baseball players for the purposes of drumming up excitement for the possibility of a Major League 3 — the franchise which featured Sheen as loose cannon pitcher Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn. According to sources, Sheen’s thinking is that if he’s going to be an out of control celebrity convict, he might as well throw on a Cleveland Indians uniform and make some money off it.

Zolciak, Kim — The Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who is pregnant with the child of Atlanta Falcons football player Kroy Biermann, recently bared all for a photo shoot with Life & Style Magazine (photo SFW, but why would you want to see that?), saying “she’s more in touch with her body” than she was when pregnant with her previous children. Doctors have instructed Zolciak to perform all the usual tasks expectant mothers can do to bond with their unborn child, but have strongly advised against her singing to the baby.
