Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, October 05, 2007

"Can you keep a secret? I'm trying to organize a prison break. I'm looking for, like, an accomplice. We have to first get out of this bar, then the hotel, then the city, and then the country. Are you in or you out?" - Bill Murray, "Lost in Translation"


It's been a slow week at work, but at least my voice has returned and I plan to enjoy this weekend after I plow through hard-hitting stories like:

Britney Spears's continuing downward spiral took another turn Monday when she was ordered to relinquish custody of her children by a judge who had cited her drug-and-alcohol-fueled lifestyle. Superior Court Judge Scott M. Gordon ruled that that ex-husband Kevin Federline take Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, beginning Wednesday "until further order of the court."


Spears wasn't overly concerned until a staffer told her that losing her children didn't entail her standard procedure of simply misplacing them around the house, but rather that they were going to live full-time with K-Fed.

The staffer in question drew Spears a picture of the situation in red crayon.

"Rush Hour" put Jackie Chan in Hollywood's major leagues, but the Hong Kong star isn't a fan of his successful action comedy franchise.

"When we finished filming, I felt very disappointed because it was a movie I didn't appreciate and I did not like the action scenes involved. I felt the style of action was too Americanized and I didn't understand the American humor," Chan said in a blog entry on his Web site.


I'm with Chan on this one because I still don't understand why these movies made so much money as I don't find them very funny at all.

In a celebration of chaste love, wedding bells might not be far off as Pamela Anderson and Rick Salomon (amateur porn star) applied for — and were granted — a marriage license in Las Vegas, according to the Clark County's Marriage License Bureau.

The license means the couple can get married any time during the next year.


To expedite matters, the license should also have a divorce decree written on the back because if that marriage lasts a year then my ass is a banjo.

Less than seven days ago, fanboys were salivating at the thought of sexy Jessica Biel harnessing the golden lasso and wearing the bulletproof bracelets of iconic superhero Wonder Woman in the new action-adventure pic "Justice League."

But this week, Entertainment Weekly reported that this is not going to happen.


This retraction makes me want to cry because Wonder Woman is very sexy, Jessica Biel is even sexier and the combination had me - a noted non-fanboy - emotionally erect, and now that has been squashed like a ripened grapefruit.

A naked intruder broke into Nicolas Cage's waterfront home near Los Angeles this week, and put on one of his leather jackets before he was confronted by the actor, police said on Tuesday.

No one was hurt in the incident, and Cage, who was at home with his wife and child, asked the intruder to remove the jacket, escorted him outside and called a security guard. Robert Dennis Furo Jr., 45, pleaded not guilty to a first-degree burglary charge.



The jacket theft was merely irritating, but Furo Jr. threw Cage over the edge when he went after his toupee collection, a sprawling display which is housed in a secret oxgen chamber hidden behind a trap door under a lagoon filled with piranah.

Howard K. Stern, the lawyer and former companion of Anna Nicole Smith, has filed a $60 million lawsuit against the author and publisher of a controversial book about the late actress for libelous claims, the most notorious being that Stern had a sexual encounter with Smith's former boyfriend Larry Birkhead.


Since Stern is a lawyer I would expect him to know that to be libelous a statement must be untrue, and in this case, I actually hope that is correct because the alternative is an ugly mental picture.

Vin Diesel and Paul Walker are supposedly in talks to reprise their roles for a fourth installment of the "The Fast and the Furious" according to the Hollywood Reporter.


The working title currently stands as: "We're Broke and We're Furious."

But let's not end with negative energy and Diesel fuel as I prefer this pleasing image:


I love those glasses as I think they make this woman look fiercely intelligent. I am always looking for additional information, so take time out today to quench your thirst for knowledge, find a good teacher and . . . Happy Friday!

  2. Pamela Anderson's marrying an amateur porn star? What? She couldn't find a professional one?

  6. Man, I love "Lost in Translation" Good quote.

    I could not believe Pam Anderson and Rick Salomon. What is wrong with this woman?? She needs to go to "bad man rehab" or something.

    Maybe that "fiercely intelligent" woman in the picture could teach us all about Hello Kitty. haha

     
  7. Stephanie - You would think so, wouldn't you? This is the guy from the Paris Hilton sex tape.

    Jlee - 'Translation' is a great film. As for Anderson, she just likes trashy guys through and through. Finally, I would even listen to info about Hello Kitty from her.

     
  8. Miss Ash Says:
  9. I hated Lost in Translation..I think i'm the only person alive that did.

    As for Pam, i'm embarassed that she is Canadian. I saw her on a talk show with Marilyn Manson, he was a very well spoken intelligent man...she on the other hand was an absolute baffoon.

     
  10. Wendy Says:
  11. Nic Cage is creepy, but I have to say he handled that situation very well--escorting the intruder out rather than shooting him. Or maybe he just really loved that jacket.

     
  12. BostonPobble Says:
  13. Thank you for the giggle this morning. I needed that. "...then my ass is a banjo." hee hee

     
  14. Rush Hour was a comedy? Huh, I didn't realize that.

    Does that fact that your last shot has a HELLO KITTY pillowcase take away from the "fun"? I didn't think so.

     
  15. nobich Says:
  16. Happy Friday to you too!! how are you 2$?

     
  17. Miss Ash - No comment on 'Translation'. Ha. As for Pam, she is far from the sharpest tool in the shed (but she boasts other attributes which make her a fine Canadian).

    Wendy - Yeah, it's nice to see Cage not overreact to the situation. He got the guy arrested, got his jacket back & nobody was hurt - all of which allows it to be a silly story.

    BostonPobble - Glad to have helped with that as laughing is ALWAYS a good thing. And I stole that banjo line, but I'm not telling from where.

    Anonymous Boxer - It's news to me as well. And that Hello Kitty pillowcase takes away NOTHING for me. Ha. I'm big like that.

    Nobich - I'm doing pretty good lately. It's great to see you around again as I was actually thinking a few weeks ago that I wondered where you went. Hope all is well.

     
  18. Miss Ash - No comment on 'Translation'. Ha. As for Pam, she is far from the sharpest tool in the shed (but she boasts other attributes which make her a fine Canadian).

  19. Grace Says:
  20. God, what an odd looking couple (referring to the picture of Britney and Kevin). Who would have thought that he'd end up being the more responsible one?! I still feel bad for her... I honestly can't explain why though.

     
  21. nobich Says:
  22. everythings terrible but you know the saying- what doesn't kill you makes you stronger (so now I'm like the Mr. Clean guy or something)

     
  23. Grace - I agree on both fronts. I would have lost serious money on KFed being the more responsible parent and Spears garners sympathy, however, at soome point that runs out when you keep acting like a total dumb-ass.

    Nobich - I know it doesn't help much, but sorry to hear that. But maybe the Mr. Clean comparison is a good thing. He always looked fairly happy - stern, but happy. Good luck & visit here anytime.

     
  24. Linda Says:
  25. Hey, that chick is wearing my glasses! The only quality we have in common is poor eyesight!! Put me in in the "love" column for Lost in Translation. Such a cool movie in so many ways. Happy Friday and welcome back!!

     
  26. vivavavoom Says:
  27. I loved Lost in Translation! Great movie.
    Pam Anderson...Hep C..it does a body good. ;) Girl needs to take some meds and watch her liver.

     
  28. Linda - Thanks for the welcome back as it feels good to be back in the swing of things. As for the glasses, if you find this woman who stole your pair, please direct her to the site. Ha.

    Vivavavoom - I keep expecting Anderson to simply drop one of these days under the strain. But Solomon - give me a break as at least Lee & Rock were in bands.

     
  29. I wish I could have been naked in the presence of Nicholas Cage and wearing one of his leather jackets. :-) Anyhoo......

     
  30. I like Cage as an actor, but that's about where it ends - somewhere far away from turning up naked at his house. Ha. But whatever floats your boat . . . Just don't get caught.

     
  31. vivavavoom Says:
  32. yeah...all rick solomon has been in is Paris (among others)

    couldn't resist...the comeback was right there after your comment

     
  33. Ha. Sometimes when a ball is teed up like that, you have to knock it out of the park all the way to Paris.

     
  34. Anonymous Says:
  35. God, what an odd looking couple..." I thought you were talking about Larry Birkhead and Howard Stern...

     
  36. They would definitely fall into that category as well. Ha. I just try not to think about it.
