The Snob is spending her first Fourth of July in the Nation's Capitol. Oh goody! I'll probably do something very not glamorous and eat more food than I should. Might write a few letters to Elin Woods to see if she feels like joining in a few business ventures with me since it looks like she might have a little extra cash floating around soon. (Or not!) Or I just might get drunk and watch no-sexy-times vampires versus werewolves fighting over that one girl who thinks one day her fans are going to murder her movie. What are you going to do? The one thing I'm not going to do is update this puppy until something strikes my fancy. And I predict that something will strike my fancy around Monday. Until then, enjoy yourselves. Don't get too drunkity-drunk and blow up anything with yer sparklers n' such!
Here's a round-up of stories I'll be occasionally checking on:
Taiwan's Apple Daily's bid for a Pulitzer with their Sims rendition of an allegedly gropy Al Gore turning into -- Godzilla? The Incredible Hulk? Jabba the Hut? (Gawker)
Allegations that Chris Brown was all kinds of fake crying at the BET Awards. My take? I don't think it's that serious. Actually rubbing chemicals into your eye to make you cry? Where did he put the shit? Is there Zapruder footage? I'm going with reader Wenzel Dashington's theory that he just got out of breath from dancing and effin' panicked. (US Magazine)
Tyler Perry's camp denying that anyone got fired because Aaron McGruder took Madea ... I mean "Ma Dukes" wink, wink! ... really, really personal. (Blackvoices)
RNC Chairdofus Michael Steele is against the war in Afghanistan. You didn't read that wrong. He thinks the whole shebang is mad stoopid, son. But, for the record, the Republican Party is FOR the stupid war. So while I agree with Steele that the thing is unwinable, since your party is for the war you're supposed to keep those thoughts to yourself and away from all microphones. You really ARE a covert Democratic agent of chaos, aren't you? I bet you voted for Obama, you gremlin you! Don't worry. I'll never tell. (Gawker via Talking Points Memo)
And the cover art for Kanye West's new single "Power." It's his decapitated head with a sword through it. Meta! (LA Times)
Happy Fourth of July, all!
