The Entertation Index: May 26

May 26, 2011

Gaga, Lady — During Tuesday night’s “Pinheads and Patriots” segment of ultra-conservative television pundit Bill O’Reilly’s FOX program The O’Reilly Factor, the host included pop phenom Lady Gaga in his “patriots” category for her recent, entertaining appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman. Upon closer inspection, however, it turned out that it was not actually Bill O’Reilly, but Gaga herself in her most freakishly horrifying costume yet.

Kardashian, Kim — The Kardashian sisters — Kim, Khloe and Kourtney — have decided to turn their formidable talents from shopping on camera and wining in pajamas to writing full-blown literature. According to head sister Kim, the book so far has no premise, characters or central conflict, but she’s sure she’ll pull something out of her ass.

Savage, Randy “Macho Man” — As a cultural website, we’d be remiss if we neglected mention that  former professional wrestler Randy “The Macho Man” Savage suffered a heart attack last Saturday and died in a subsequent car accident as a result of the cardiac arrest. During the eighties, the WWF was more pop culture than sport, and one of the forefathers of that movement was the always-fantastic Macho Man. He was most certainly loved and will not be forgotten.

Actor Ricardo Montalban, sporting the same fashion that got me all kinds of action in high school.

Star Trek 2 — Due to delays in their upcoming releases, sources say Paramount studios’ long-awaited Star Trek 2 will be rescheduled from next June to December of 2012. I don’t know how stupid Paramount thinks I am, but I’ve already seen Star Trek 2 — thank you very much — in 1982, and Ricardo Montalban was awesome in it. Nice try, movie execs.

Videos, Pop Up — This fall will see sixty new episodes of VH1’s early nineties smash television show Pop Up Videos, which turned the factoids between popular music videos into on-screen nuggets of information. For our readers too young to remember what music videos are, we should explain that music videos were what we watched as we talked with our faces and mouths to our friends on phones which were connected to the walls of our homes. I don’t know how on earth we got by back then.

Wolf, TeenThe New York Times has a great story about MTV’s Teen Wolf revamping,which is set to premiere in early June. It should be noted, however that MTV’s Teen Wolf should not be confused with MTV’s other mega-hit show Teen Mom, and by all means has nothing at all to do with the upcoming MTV nature docu-drama Teen Wolf-Mom, in which immature, partying wolves give birth to litters of young.
