Happy Leap Year, Yo

Sales of Dreams of My Father and The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama have tripled in February with more than 35,000 copies purchased each week. Books by Hillary Clinton and John McCain have averaged less than 1,000 a week. Will.i.am just released another video called "We are the Ones," just in time for the Democratic primaries in Ohio and Texas this Tuesday.

We are the ones we've been waiting for.

Imagine If A Real Singer Won American Idol

American Idol saved the best for last tonight and closed with David Archuleta singing Imagine by John Lennon. As we haven't been able to watch this season, we were pleasantly surprised to see Paula Abdul is coherent, and there is actually some talent on the show. By some, we mean one and are referring to 17-year-old David from Utah. Rock it out, kid.

A is for Anniversary

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away...The Royal Nobody Family was born. While we've always pontificated atop the royal we throne, not much else has remained the same. Then we relied on fellow bloggers (Miss Vayie) and lifelong friends (Miss Wendy) to read our dish, and now we actually have subscribers to our dish. Then our readership was 300, now it's 30,000. Then if you had told us that folks in countries like Dubai, Bulgaria, Croatia, and Peru would be reading this crap, we would have said, "Don't piss on our back and tell us it's raining." Now we say thank you. We are ever so grateful to all of you for sharing your time with us. Big, big, big kiss and may you all live happily ever after.

Eden Lord Ups The Ante

Sweet Jesus, Matt has absolutely no luck with the ladies. We love how the hideous August Walden is modeled after Perez Hilton, right down to the coffee shop "office." Hopefully, Hilton will take a cue from the writers of nip/tuck and add some kindness to his routine before one of his victims takes matters into her own hands.

It's Time To Give Blake The Boot

Our girl, Amy Winehouse, has achieved superstar status, and E! just premiered a "True Hollywood Story" to the grammy winner. Prior to getting mixed up with her husband, Amy had a songwriting award for 'Stronger Than Me,' had completed a sold-out European tour, and was healthy and working hard. Since she got together with Blake? Not so much.

Welcome Home

Oh, how we have missed you, dear love. It has been a long time since we last connected and we promise this time will be different. Despite your attempts to keep us by your side in the Dean Eaton dormitory, we went on to graduate college and moved to the big city. Not once, however, have we forgotten what we shared. You, Sonic the Hedgehog, are irreplaceable.

Love Like This

Happy Valentine's Day! The celebration of red and pink hearts has arrived and we want to wish you all the very best for this day of loooooooooove. Here's Natasha Bedingfield's acoustic version of "Love Like This." Enjoy.

Feed Your Addiction

The fifth season of nip/tuck has been a rollercoaster and last week's episode, Lulu Gridiron, was no exception. We are still not feeling the Julia and Christian love affair, but the degrees of separation between the characters is brilliant. Olivia (Portia de Rossi) is apparently still dating Julia, but we see much more of her daughter, Eden Lord. Holy freaky-deaky situation with Kimber, Ram and Eden. And is Julia going to die, or what? We're guessing no, but we wouldn't be sad if she did. We gave up when she slept with Conor's nanny. Yes, the little guy. Enjoy.

Yes, We Can!

We will remember that something is happening in America. This is officially our new favorite song. Scarlett shows off her voice, Taryn Manning makes an appearance, as do Common, Nicole from the Pussycat Dolls, John Legend, Nick from October Road, will. i. am., Michael from Lost, the hot guy from Without A Trace, Claire's boyfriend on Six Feet Under, and of course, the man himself - Senator Barack Obama. Indeed, we can.

M is for Monday

Following her performance and 5 Grammy wins last night, Amy Winehouse gushed to the crowd in London, "I can't believe I've won five awards," she told the intimate crowd, including her mother Janis, father Mitch and older brother Alex. "It's a shame I couldn't be there to accept the awards but I'm so proud and happy that I had the opportunity to perform for the Grammys in my hometown of London with my family and friends around me. Thank you, thank you, thank you!" Amy celebrate with her mom, Janis, dad, Mitch, and her older brother, Alex. We have been loving Amy forever, and truly hope that she uses this opportunity to turn a corner and get herself together. We dig vintage Winehouse before all the drugs and Blake. Enjoy.

T is for Toasted

Amy Winehouse performs at '08 Grammys

Thanks to Michael K for the awesome video of Winehouse's performance tonight. Enjoy.

Rihanna Rocks It Out

Rihanna performed "Umbrella" at the Grammy Awards, our song of last summer. Why did she cut her hair so short, though?

Winehouse Wins Again

Bravo, Amy. It was touch and go for awhile, but she managed to pull through and give a solid performance. After winning the Grammy for 'Record of the Year' she said some thanks and of course mentioned Blakie. We're working on posting her performance, so stay tuned if you missed it.

Holy Awards For Winehouse

Amy Winehouse just picked up her 2nd Grammy for 'Song of the Year' with "Rehab." Above is Kanye West's performance, if you're interested. Yes, we love blogger video.

*Update: we love it, but we're still working out the kinks. Above is Tina Turner performing, and we'll have more of her with Beyonce in a moment. Kanye just won 'Best Rap Album' so maybe he won't throw a fit tonight. We can hope.

The 2008 Grammy Awards

Carrie Underwood performed 'Before He Cheats' and Amy Winehouse won the 'Best New Artist' award. Go, Amy, go. Beyonce is performing next and then Amy later. We're kind of nervous for her.

Britney Lives To Smoke Another Butt

Britney is out of the hospital and was at the dance studio yesterday, looking like a hot mess. The last weeks have been extremely difficult for Brit and her father is now in charge of her, literally and financially. Her parents got a restraining order against weirdo, Sam Lufti. He used to crush up medicine for pschizophrenia and put it in her food. When she was admitted to the hospital after the meltdown, she told the paramedics that she had taken adderall that night. Brit's paparazzi boyfriend, Adnan, (top photo) was just sued for divorce by his wife. For those of you keeping score; K-Fed has full custody of the kids, and Brit is not allowed to see them following her trip to the psych ward. Considering the situation, we feel somewhat silly for criticizing the girl on her fashion choices. Obviously in Britney's world, 'wear sane person clothes' is absolutely nowhere on the to-do list.

Welcome Back Whitney

The ladies were out in full effect last night at the pre-Grammy party hosted by Clive Davis. Rihanna's "umbrella" is up against Beyonce's "irreplaceable" for Record of the Year. Amy Winehouse is up against Kanye West for Album of the Year. It is rumored that Whitney Houston will perform tonight with Alicia Keys. That would be hot. And what is up with Lohan's skin? She needs to stop.

S is for Six Nominations

The 50th Annual Grammy Awards are tonight and our girl, Amy Winehouse, is nominated for 6 awards. Initially, Amy was turned down for a US visa by the embassy in London, but then Washington approved her visa for the performance. Visa issues aside, she will perform live via satellite tonight. She is out of rehab now, or in rehab, but we do know that after a video surfaced of her smoking crack and/or heroin, she quickly entered rehab. Her husband, Blake, is still in jail, and we're grateful that Amy got over that ridiculous desire to be blonde. We were scared for a second.

V is for Virginia

Hillary Clinton has come a long way from being the woman behind the man. At the beginning of the speech she's giving on CNN right now, she called the last 7 years "a detour." She is not fuckin' around. If she mentions "Carlos" one more time, we're totally calling her out on jumping the shark. We know "Carlos" is there supporting you from Texas. Let's move on.

We Dare You Not To Feel The Funk

On Friday we posted a video, and today we found this totally more awesome version of Sean Kingston's Beautiful Girls feat. Ben E. King. Enjoy.

P is for Puzzle


Congratulations, It's A Widget!

T is for Tom

As we mentioned earlier, we've been spending a lot of time working on widgets this weekend. The above photo link is the statue that P.T. Barnum gifted to Bridgeport, CT in honor of Tom Thumb. We are using this page as a link in creating our very first widget. Why Tom Thumb, you ask? H is for History, of course.

S is for Snow

If all works out properly, you may be watching a video from our very own cell phone. Rather exciting for us, as we have been into widgets and such lately. That last sentence is probably the nerdiest thing we've ever said, but let's not digress. As always, we thank you for joining us here on the blog and we'd like to say a big thank you to one of our readers for our newfound inspiration. Kara, you leave us in awe. Keep rockin' it out, girl.

Smooth Is, As Smooth Does

For your listening pleasure. Enjoy!

We Just Cancelled Our Subscription

The fact that Britney's face is gracing the cover of Rolling Stone with the caption, 'Inside An American Tragedy,' speaks for itself. We admit to previously titling a post 'American Tragedy Revisted' here on the blog, but we were referring to the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman. OJ Simpson took their lives and was never held accountable, which we happen to think is tragic. Brit Brit's drug drama and career suicide? Not so much. As of today, February 8, 2008, American families have lost 3,953 loved ones in Iraq. We're no experts, but it appears the time has come for a reality check. Mainstream media? We're talkin' to you.
