Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, June 27, 2008

"There's nothing wrong with going nowhere, son. It's a privilege of youth." - Kevin Costner, "Fandango"

I'm going nowhere fast today, but it's Friday, so it's hard to quibble about such things. If the work day moves quickly, then everything else will fall into place. But before that happens, let's look at the hard stories of the week such as:

George Carlin, the dean of counterculture comedians whose biting insights on life and language were immortalized in his "Seven Words You Can Never Say On TV" routine, died of heart failure Sunday. He was 71.

This was a depressing way to start the week, and the only thing I have to say is "Shit, Piss, Fuck, Cunt, CockSucker, MotherFucker, and Tits." Carlin had too many other great bits to list, and it's sad that he's no longer around to say them himself.

British singer Amy Winehouse, a Grammy winner for the song ``Rehab,'' is being treated for emphysema, a potentially deadly lung disease.

The 24-year-old ``has an early form of emphysema,'' Winehouse's U.K. publicist, Chris Goodman, said today in a telephone interview. ``It's totally reversible and she's responded well to treatment.''

By "treatment," Goodman means that doctors have finally been able to forcibly remove the crack pipe from her hands with a set of restraints and a pair of pliers.

An Italian businessman who had been romantically linked to Anne Hathaway has been arrested on wire fraud conspiracy and money laundering charges, Manhattan prosecutors said Tuesday.

Raffaello Follieri, who was awaiting an appearance in Manhattan federal court, is accused of falsely telling an investor that the Vatican had appointed him to manage its financial affairs. He allegedly claimed that, as a result of his Vatican connections, he and others could obtain properties of the Catholic church in the United States at a substantial discount to fair market value.

There's no word on what questionable details he told Hathaway, however, I'm certain he lied about the size of his penis.

U.S. pop star Madonna reportedly is seeking advice from Paul McCartney's divorce lawyer - Fiona Shackleton - regarding a possible split from her husband Guy Ritchie.

Madonna married the British filmmaker in 2000, and the couple, who have 3 children are not thought to have a prenuptial agreement.

Shackleton's first piece of advice was "you should have signed a pre-nup, you oversexed baboon."

A Los Angeles judge questioned Britney Spears and a parenting coach on Tuesday during a hearing into the pop star's child custody case before ordering a change to her visitation status with her two sons. reported that the judge has granted the Grammy-winning entertainer overnight visits with sons Sean Preston, 2 1/2, and Jaden James, 21 months, who are in the custody of her ex-husband, Kevin Federline.

I cannot fathom exactly what an overnight visit with Spears might entail, but I bet Cheetos are involved somewhere along the way.

Bill Murray and his wife of nearly 11 years, Jennifer Butler Murray, are now divorced.

Documents filed in Charleston County in South Carolina show that a judge approved a divorce agreement on June 13th, barely a month after Jennifer Murray filed divorce papers. Under the agreement, the couple's four children will live with their mother. Bill Murray will have visitation rights and will pay child support.

Jennifer also will keep the couple's home on Sullivans Island, South Carolina, and their second house in Hemet, California.

Bill Murray will get to keep his acute sense of humor - if he's lucky.

Actress Heather Locklear has checked into an Arizona medical facility for psychological treatment, her spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

"Heather has been dealing with anxiety and depression," Locklear's spokeswoman Cece Yorke said in a statement to Reuters. "She requested an in depth evaluation of her medication and entered into a medical facility for proper diagnosis and treatment."

I'm holding out for a quick recovery and hopefully her doctors keep showing her mirrors to remind her she's Heather Locklear and she should be happy about that. I know I am.

Tim McGraw helped eject an unruly fan from a concert this week as he was about to sing "Indian Outlaw."

McGraw shouts "Get rid of this guy," summons security and helps arriving crew members haul him onstage. When the heavyset fan moves toward McGraw, the singer threatens him with a cocked fist as he's hauled away.

In the ejected fan's defense, "Indian Outlaw" really, really sucks.

But let's not end on a down note, and instead, focus on a gold image like:

I'm a man who can appreciate both vice as well as nudity, and I never judge a person who indulges in both at the same time. So, don't be afraid to mix your pleasures today, refuse to throw stones in glass houses and . . . Happy Friday!



  1. So lemme get this straight, Anne Hathaway is into Italian bullshit artists...

    So long mofos! This is gonna be really happy Friday!

  2. I'm still in mourning for George Carlin *sigh* I'm feeling old when the greats I grew up watching start leaving the planet.

    I must have been actually working this week and missed the Madonna news. Do British Celebrities not understand what a pre-nup is? Is their adopted child included? Will Madonna drop her fake English accent if she divorces?

    As usual, you end with the Classic 2$ shot - Happy Friday!

    Next week is a short week!

  3. Heff Says:
  4. I actually watched the George Carlin marathon last night on HBO. Kept me up damn near all night. Good stuff, though.

    Do mine eyes deceive me, or was Amy Winehouse once somewhat HOT ?!?

  5. Gypsy Says:
  6. Am I the only one on the planet that isn't familiar with George Carlin? Not to be sanctimonious but I loathe the c-word with a passion...not cocksucker, the other one. Cringe.....

    Another it me or does Madonna look more and more like a drag queen the older she gets?

    I must admit I'd be terribly depressed if I looked like Heather Locklear...Jaysus!

    Pure gold as always B and a great finish to the week. I can go to bed now I've had my QHF fix. Have a great weekend.

  7. WhatIgot - Not anymore as Hathaway finally dumped him, but her taste is still questionable in my mind. I assume you're leaving town by your comment, so enjoy it.

    Anonymous Boxer - I know what you mean about people you like passing on as that is no fun at all for anybody involved. The Madonna thing just hit yesterday as I was wrapping this stuff up, so we'll see if it plays out or not. Happy Friday & I can't wait for next week.

    Heff - I wish I had HBO more often than not, and I'm going to have to rejoin one of these days. I know what you mean about Winehouse as I did a double-take and thought it was another person when I found that picture yesterday. Bizarre.

    Gypsy - Glad you stayed up for something decent. Ha. I completely agree about Madonna lately as I can admire her dedication to fitness, however, she's looking more than a little scary. But I think Locklear looks pretty good in general . . . and Carlin is probably more limited to the U.S. in his popularity. I could be wrong as I honestly have no idea how he plays overseas, if at all. Have a great weekend.

  8. Linda Says:
  9. Carlin will be missed. I can remember listening to his albums with my friends, back in the day. We would laugh until we cried. I consoled myself by buying a copy of The Aristocrats. I've spend my fair share of time watching a lot of clips on Youtube as well, gotta love the technology. On a lighter note ...... Happy Friday!!!

  10. JLee Says:
  11. Very sad about Carlin and Madonna/Guy. I couldn't give two shits about Bill Murray divorcing. ha Sorry Bill..
    Happy Friday and be careful when applying those nipple clamps! haha

  12. Linda - That is definitely a bright side to Youtube, and I laughed so hard when I saw Carlin in concert that it hurt. Happy Friday to you.

    Jlee - I'm flipped as I could care less about Madonna and Guy and like Bill. Ha. And I figure if you're wearing the clamps, then pain is the last thing that bothers you. Happy Friday.

  13. JLee Says:
  14. Oh yeah, I love Bill Murray...I just didn't even realize he was married! lol

  15. The Troll Says:
  16. I'll pass on your nice words to my friend Heather Locklear. Thanks for not jumping to conclusions like most media maggots did.

    Heather DOES NOT abuse drugs or alcohol.

  17. Jlee - No worries. I don't think Bill realized it either. Ha.

    TheTroll - I appreciate you passing that along as I like Locklear quite a bit and she still looks great. I bet she'll be out soon. Finally, direct her to this site if you're passing messages and possibly my email account. Ha.

  18. BostonPobble Says:
  19. Dear Lord...are those *both* Amy Winehouse???????

    Many more questions after reading all this but I had to ask the important one.

  20. Mr. DNA Says:
  21. Carlin just played here in May and I was going to go, but then stuff came up and I figured I'd catch him next time...

  22. vivavavoom Says:
  23. "reversible emphysema"..I think Amy's spokesperson has also been smoking the crack pipe. remember Whitney people: "crack is whack"....unless it is Brad Pitt's crack.

  24. Miss Ash Says:
  25. I remember when I was quite young my parents had a George Carlin record and I would sneak a listen every once in a while as he was fowl mouthed and dirty...I loved it!

  26. BostonPobble - I have to assume the answer is yes. I was also confused when I first found it on my image search. She used to look normal.

    Mr. DNA - That stinks on many levels. I'm sorry as seeing Carlin in Vegas was the best thing I did during my bachelor party. At least there's plenty of clips of him running around.

    Vivavavoom - I thought of that Whitney line too when I read this story. Ha. And the whole thing sounds suspect to me unless they have some new medicine in the U.K. Have a good weekend.

    Miss Ash - I didn't realize that Carlin was making jokes about ducks. Ha. And yes, his was hilariously profane as he used vulgarity for good and not evil. Very funny stuff indeed.

  27. Miss Ash Says:
  28. Very funny!! I didn't even realize I did that. See just like my post said I've got a case of the dumbs haha!

  29. A moment of silence for George Carlin..............

    Now...Amy Winehouse is looking like she belongs in an abadoned building passed out in a corner laying in her own piss, with a crack pipe in her hand, white crusty chapped lips and the grimm reaper standing over top of her.

    Madonna an oversexed baboon. Hahaha. I love it.

    You already know how I feel about Britany Spears. She is a freakin waste of skin!

    And once again I don't know where you keep getting these naked photos from.

    Happy Friday

  30. I was shocked by George Carlin's death, even though I shouldn't have been. Didn't he have a history of heart problems? Still sucks though.

  31. Miss Ash - Don't worry - it happens to the best of us. Ha. I enjoyed it better than the foul-mouthed spelling anyway.

    Trina - You know I always appreciate your attention to detail. That description of Winehouse is spot-on accurate (and Britney too generally speaking), and I found this great site to pick up more ending pics as I was running on empty. Have a good weekend.

    Native Minnow - I'm almost always somewhat surprised when those kinds of things happen. And yes, Carlin had heart issues as he had a couple of surgeries over the past 5 years or so to fix things. It's just a shame.

  32. grace Says:
  33. OMG, I'm stunned at the Winehouse photos. I've never seen her look like the right pic. How do you go from that to what she looks like now? That's just insane.

  34. cats Says:
  35. i'm so sad about george carlin. he also did thomas the train which is a big favorite with children with autism.

    i'm sure he's telling dirty jokes to God right now.

  36. Grace - I agree. I had never seen her look like that before, and it makes how she is now all the worse.

    Cats - My nephew loves Thomas the Train & I didn't realize that Carlin did the voice. It was a rotten way to start last week & just sad.
