  • Will someone get poor Lindsay L. some help? She is such a mezz. Here she is passed out and puking that night after her coke bust on Sunset Blvd. I love a girl who celebrates getting busted for partying with more partying.

  • I predict in 5 years, CD's will be just about obsolete.

  • Two Cinci Reds smash into each other in the outfield; Freel knocked out and carted off.

  • Raw footage from the fire at ABC 7 last night.

  • Right Said Fred singer Richard Fairbrass and gay rights activist Peter Tatchell were attacked during a march in Moscow. Trouble broke out when demonstrators tried to appeal against a ban on a gay rights march through the Russian capital. Police arrested about a dozen demonstrators and forced them into a bus. The banned march was aimed at marking the 14th anniversary of Russia decriminalising homosexuality. Tatchell was one of several demonstrators punched and kicked by nationalists shouting "death to homosexuals". Heres video of Tatchell getting punched.

  • Las Vegas Jabba the Hutt Judge abusing her power; has dudes rubbing her feet and fixing her lunch.

  • Warm on wine, Rosie speaks and sneezes into her shirt. Says Hasseltits called after their now-infamous argument on "The View" and spoke to O'Donnell's partner Kelli. But O'Donnell says she didn't speak to Hasselbeck and "probably won't." She says they exchanged emails. O'Donnell quit "The View" after she called Hasselbeck "cowardly" for not defending her when critics said she compared U.S. troops to terrorists. During the argument, the director used a split screen with O'Donnell on one side and Hasselbeck on the other. She says when she saw the split screen that's when she "knew it was over."

  • A man clad only in his underewear wrestled an adorable wild leopard to the floor and pinned it for 20 minutes after the cat leapt through a window of his home and hopped into bed with his sleeping family. hahaha

  • Mr. Cool, The Toothpaste !!! Health officials have seized more than 350 tubes of Chinese-made toothpaste tainted with a deadly chemical reportedly found in tubes sold elsewhere in the world. Health Secretary Maria Avila said 56 tubes of toothpaste containing a chemical commonly used in antifreeze and brake fluid had been found so far. As far as we know, there is no relation between Mr. Cool, The Toothpaste and Mr. Cool Ice (seen below).

  • A JetBlue Airbus was heading from Rochester to JFK when it was struck by lightning. A smell similar to that of an electrical fire entered the passenger cabin, but there was no fire or smoke. The emergency allowed Flight 43 to land before other scheduled flights. That meant the passengers got to their destination about 20 minutes early; a first for JetBlue at JFK. Ooohhh snap!

  • Portions from from Perez Hilton: Remember that scene in Truth or Dare when Kevin Costner comes backstage? Well, more than fifteen years later, he's still talking about Madonna. When asked by her Madgesty what he thought of her Blond Ambition concert, he replied that it was "neat." After he makes a hasty exit from her dressing room, Madonna mockingly shoved her finger down her throat and says, "Anybody who says my show is 'neat' has to go." Well, apparently that whole incident in her film hurt his feelings, but he and Madonna have since made up. He tells the LA Times all about it. "Yeah, I was embarrassed by it and kind of hurt by it. I just went back there because I was asked to go back. And I found the best word that I could. I never called her on it or whatever. "But she did a really beautiful thing. She was performing in L.A. about three or four years ago, so I decided to take my daughters to see her. I just thought this is somebody they should see. I didn't call anybody for tickets, I just got tickets and we went down.... "And about the third song in, the lights were down, and she said, 'I want to apologise to someone.' And all of a sudden my face starts to get hot.... And she says, 'I want to apologize to Kevin Costner.' She just said it very simply. Ninety-eight percent of that audience didn't know what she was talking about. But I really respected that, and it showed me the power of just keeping your own counsel for a long time.... Whatever possessed her, whatever was inside her, she came to her own decision. And a bigger thing came out of some kind of humiliation. "I never wrote her to say thank you, but I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart, and that meant more to me than you could ever know." Oh, they are SO totally gonna make out now.

  • Don't forget to tune in to the WABC 770 AM for the annual rewound show!!! The schedule is here, featuring old tapes from Dan Ingram, Ron Ludy, Harry Harrison and of course Cousin Brucie. Check it. Interestingly, the many of the tapes do not come from the station’s own archives. Instead most of the vintage tapes come from hobbyist aircheck collectors who have a thriving trading community that trades recordings from stations throughout North America and the world. So what is offered is a bit random, since it is just what someone happened to tape and was in good enough condition to broadcast.
