Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, September 14, 2007

"Fuck you, that's my name. You know why mister? Cause you drove a Hyundai to get here tonight, I drove an $80,000 dollar BMW. That's my name." - Alec Baldwin, "Glengarry Glen Ross"

It seems like a slow week in Hollywood since the Britney Spears train wreck at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, but before I start my weekend of music at ACL and other concert venues, let's cover other noteworthy stories like:

Kid Rock and Tommy Lee got in a mini-scuffle at the MTV awards show as Rock allegedly slapped/punched Lee, who was eventually escorted out by security.

I don't know the cause of the fight, however, if it was over who would be going home with Pamela Anderson that night, then I'm sure they both could have if they ever learned to share as children.

Actor Shia LaBeouf, who stars opposite Harrison Ford in the final Indiana Jones adventure, revealed that the film is called "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" this week.

I sincerely hope the actual movie is better than the title as this has been an excellent series.

Teen star Vanessa Hudgens has again sparked a whirlwind of publicity amid new allegations she sent naked pictures of herself to a Nickelodeon actor two years ago when she was 16. Hudgens recently confirmed that a nude picture that appeared on the Internet was her, and was intended to be kept private.

For Hollywood stars both young and old, the only thing you can guarantee is that if you ever take nude pictures or make a sex tape that it will eventually be leaked to the public. Think about it.

"The Daily Show" host Jon Stewart is set to host the next year’s annual Oscar ceremony for the second time after comedienne Ellen DeGeneres took her turn last year.

Stewart is an excellent choice, but I only hope that he can shorten the Oscars by at least 30 - 45 minutes as they are always as bloated as Rosie O'Donnell after an extra helping of Au Gratin Potatoes.

50 Cent announced a few weeks ago that if his new album, "Curtis," did not outsell Kanye West's new collection, "Graduation," during their first week in stores that he would call it quits. So far, West is outselling 50 Cent's CD by a wide margin.

Since I just can't seem to pick sides or care very much at all, I've decided to be like Switzerland and not buy either disc.

The White Stripes have called off their UK tour, just days after they shelved a string of US dates. The band announced on Tuesday that drummer Meg White was suffering from acute anxiety, leaving her unable to travel between concert venues.

I was going to see the White Stripes at Austin City Limits this weekend, and I don't find anything (a)cute about Meg's anxiety as I wanted to hear them for the first time.

But let's stay positive, and end with this:

Sometimes you feel the need to rebel, and other times . . . well, let's say I might conform to whatever she had to say. But in general, it's good to find your own path, so with that in mind, showcase your individuality or fight against something good and . . . Happy Friday!



  1. Overheard at the MTV Awards
    Rock: I ain't gonna fuck her. You fuck her.
    Lee: I'm not touching that thing again, you take her.
    Rock: How about you take Pam, and I take your momma. I can teach her to dance and your daddy to rock and roll.
    Lee: Fuck you! That's Poison dipshit!

  2. JLee Says:
  3. "Fuck you, that's my name" I think I'll use that line this weekend. haha
    I also think I'll go the way of Switzerland and choose neither rap star. I'm diplomatic that way.

    That sucks about the White Stripes. Between anxiety and rehab, there won't be any acts left! Happy Friday and enjoy the festivities.

  4. WhatIgot - I haven't seen a transcript, but that sounds about right to me. But in Lee's defense, anyone would be insulted when compared to Poison.

    Jlee - That is simply one of the greatest scenes/monologues in movie history. I'll post the whole thing one of these days. Have a good weekend yourself & I plan to survive with any luck at all down here.

  5. Tiara Girl Says:
  6. Tommy Lee would WHUP Kid Rock's ass. They need to be on the next installment of Celebrity Boxing. Why would I pick Tommy to win ? Let's just say he's got "Reach".

  9. Wendy Says:
  10. Sorry, thought I better delete that. My kids sometimes use my computer.

  11. Tiara Girl - Lee's got legendary reach, however, I doubt it would help him too much in a fight. At least I hope it wouldn't as I think Rock might take him as he is slightly less scrawny than Lee.

    Wendy - That's just mean because now I want to know what you deleted that you didn't want your daughter to see. Or maybe it all a ploy . . .

  12. Wendy Says:
  13. OK, OK. It had to do with regrets in relation to taking incriminating photographs while young and in love... with some jerk who might publicize them later, when you get famous. And that's all I'm gonna say.

  14. I think Wendy has a much more interesting past than I realized.

    Jon Stewart! Happy news that he will return to the Oscars and if they would just eliminate the thank you speeches and give us more of him, we'd all be better off.

  15. Wendy - Thanks for fleshing that out. Ha. I guess the heart wants & will do what it wants . . .

    Anonymous Boxer - Agreed on all fronts. I wish they would cut the musical numbers as for every decent one there's 2 - 3 that are boring and way too long.

  16. yeah, i think Stewart and Stephen Colbert are just about the only people in the media who's opinons are worth listening to.

  17. Miss Ash Says:
  18. Have fun at the concert this weekend :)

  19. vivavavoom Says:
  20. somehow I smell a reality show coming from the kidrock/tommy lee thing. they'll both be on some surreal life in 5 years...or an ad for Hep C prevention.

  21. Linda Says:
  22. As always, great photos. Love the young, trim Baldwin. Stewart hosting the Oscars is good news to me. He'd be even more of a hero to me if he could trim that 30-40 minutes off the broadcast. We can only hope. Happy Friday!!!!

  23. iomOn First Nations radio this morning I heard that someone is trying to arrange a prize fight between Rock and Lee. "The winner gets a million bucks. The loser gets the booby prize - Pam!"

    I wasn't too fond of "Temple of Doom." We can only pray Ford's got what it takes... who am I kidding. He can do it!

  24. Idig - That is generally true, and at the very least, they are the most entertaining.

    Miss Ash - Thanks as I have survived one day & am about to start another.

    Vivavavoom - Ha. I like the latter choice, but don't see how long that show could last. I must admit, however, that I do have a morbid fascination to watch a real fight between them.

    Linda - That was some vintage Baldwin, and yes, let's hope Steward can work some editing magic (but nobody has been able to do that for years and years).

    Getoffmylawn - Booby prize - I like a good pun. And yes, 'Doom' wasn't the strongest entry in that franchise (although there was some nifty heart-tearing), but the title was better than the 'Crystal skull.'

  25. Carmel Says:
  26. The VMA's were pretty dramatic. I think it's funny how Pamela and Tommy are sitting so close together, it's not the usual divorced couples thing but hey it's better than fighting.
    Have a good week.

  27. Stephanie Says:
  28. I wonder if that actor was supposed to leak the Indiana Jones title. Isn't that right reserved for the director or producers?

  29. Carmel - It's a strange situation all the way around as I think you have to consider that it's not a typical divorce, it's a Hollywood divorce. Ha. Have a good week too.

    Stephanie - I tend to doubt he was supposed to leak that, but maybe they will change it now. I'm just not that wild about it.
