NYE


This headline is just so wrong: Dick Clark to Watch Ball Drop From Hospital Bed.

And in other NYE news, check out 100 Things You Didn't Know About the World's Most Famous Party. I found it quite interesting. For instance, did you know that after the millennium celebration, workers found two kilts, still unclaimed? (Thought you'd enjoy this article, Iceman, since you're an "official" NY-er now).

Blogs Get More Press

Read "Why There's No Escaping the Blog" from Fortune Magazine.

Props to the Manolo Shoe Blog for getting mentioned:
"More important, obsessive blogs can mean obsessive customers. The witty blogger behind Manolo's Shoe Blog may bash Birkenstocks and Uggs, but he drools over Coach, Prada, and, of course, Manolo Blahniks. Before blogs, finding someone like him—a person who probably helps others make buying decisions—would have been difficult and costly."

Jerry Orbach Dies


RIP.

--What a fine actor. I really liked him in Dirty Dancing, and everything he did since. He was the highlight of Law and Order.

UPDATE: I just found out that Orbach was the voice of Lumiere in the Beauty and the Beast movie. I had no idea! I LOVED Lumiere!

Teri Polo to Bare All


I guess starring in a movie with the word "Focker" in it wasn't enough for Teri Polo:

Fans of America's number one movie Meet The Fockers are set for an extra special treat in February's Playboy magazine when the film's star Teri Polo bares all. The actress, who plays funnyman Ben Stiller's fiancee in the Meet The Parents sequel, appears in a teaser in the new January issue of the men's magazine wearing nothing but thigh-high white socks.

Way To Shoot Yourself In The Foot

Said by an insider of rapper Lil' Jon: "Lil' Jon seriously hates Usher," says the insider. "He feels like he was responsible for the success of 'Yeah,' which he was. He produced the song and sang on it. He likes to mock Usher by saying his name in a little high voice and calls him 'Baby Usher."

--RRIIIGGGHHHTT. Because you just have sooooo much talent Lil' Jon. You must have been consuming too much of your new energy drink, Crunk Juice. (And it must have some serious hallucinogens in it).

Aviator Sunglasses


We all know that Hollywood influences fashion. Here's one more example:

Aviator sunglasses are poised for a new surge, this time as The Aviator glasses. The Aviator’s director, Martin Scorsese, a longtime friend of Giorgio Armani, approached the designer to create the period eyewear for the film. Working closely with Safilo Group, Armani’s eyewear manufacturer, and its historical eyewear archives from this era, Giorgio Armani developed two signature sunglass styles in particular for lead actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

And now, just in time for the film’s theatrical release, Armani is introducing a version of the featured classic metal aviator into his signature eyewear collection. Known as the GA 261S, this metal aviator sunglass will be available in four colors (gold/green, gold/brown, ruthenium/dark gray, gun metal/dark gray) and comes with a limited edition hard case. The sunglasses retail for $260.

Porn Phenomenon

Porn is about to inch further into the mainstream with an upcoming documentary about "Deep Throat." (I copied that line straight from the article. I cannot take credit for that awful pun).

Universal is releasing "Inside Deep Throat," a documentary about the legendary 1972 picture's "social impact" and "cultural legacy," in February. The flick, premiering at Sundance next month, features commentary from the likes of Erica Jong, Gore Vidal and Norman Mailer.

It's the latest in a recent wave of mainstream porn phenomena, including Timothy Greenfield-Sanders book of XXX star portraits and Jenna Jameson's best-seller, "How to Make Love Like a Porn Star."
