Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, October 24, 2008

"Awww, fuck 'em if they can't take a joke," - Tom Berenger, "The Big Chill"

I subscribe to that theory uttered by Tom Berenger even if I don't particularly care for his movies with the exception of 'Chill' and 'Major League.'

Anyway, it's another perfect weather day in Austin, which means I need to finish work and quickly disappear in the early afternoon for a better destination, one with a patio and cold beer should suffice. But before I start making myself scarce, let's look at the important stories of the week such as:

Faith Hill will appear in a bikini on the cover of the December issue of Shape, crediting her thrice-weekly Pilates workouts for her ultra-toned figure.

"... Wearing a bikini on a magazine cover is my 41st birthday present to myself," Hill told the magazine.

It's also a gift to me Faith, and I truly appreciate the gesture.

Nick Hogan, the 18-year-old son of celebrity wrestler Hulk Hogan, was released from jail in Florida after serving five months for causing a serious traffic crash.

Nick was arrested last year after authorities say he sped through a busy street and crashed his father's car, critically injuring a friend and former Marine.

It was unclear how many times Nick was "body slammed" or placed in the "Camel Clutch" while in prison, however, it's practically guaranteed he was the victim of at least one "pile-driver."

Britney Spears' driver's license case has been declared a mistrial.

A jury foreman announced that the panel failed to agree after four votes about whether the singer was guilty of driving without a valid driver's license, a misdemeanor. Jurors deliberated more than 8 hours.

The judge thanked the jurors for their service, but added that he hoped in the future they "would spend less than 7 hours discussing whether or not a sex tape with Spears performing actually does exist."

A wild car chase that previously led to Lindsay Lohan's arrest caused another lawsuit this week as court records show that three men who claim they were in a sport utility vehicle that Lohan commandeered in July 2007 sued the "Mean Girls" star over allegations including battery, false imprisonment and negligence.

Lohan's attorney, Ed McPherson, called the lawsuit "absurd."

In a related story, two elderly women are also suing Lohan for negligence and false imprisonment after purchasing tickets for the 2007 movie - "I Know Who Killed Me" - claiming they were unable to leave the theater before the film mercifully ended.

Lohan's attorney, Ed McPherson, called the lawsuit "absolutely reasonable."

In other legal news, David Duchovny filed a lawsuit Wednesday against The Daily Mail over a story that claimed he had cheated on his wife - Tea Leoni - with tennis coach Edit Pakay.

The lawsuit takes issue with the London paper's story which claimed the 48-year-old actor had sought out 28-year-old Pakay as a tennis instructor and that their relationship turned into a "full-blown sexual affair." Duchovny is seeking $1 million in damages for the alleged defamation and invasion of privacy.

I guess the score in their tennis matches was constantly "Over-40 Love." Ouch.

William Shatner railed against his old "Star Trek" co-star George Takei this week in a video posted on Shatner's Web site.

He lashed out at Takei for not inviting him to his wedding last month as Shatner, 77, said Takei, who played Enterprise helmsman Sulu, bears him a grudge that kept him from being invited to Takei's nuptials.

"The whole thing makes me feel badly," Shatner said in the video. "Poor man. There is such a sickness there. It's so patently obvious that there is a psychosis there. I don't know what his original thing about me was. I have no idea."

Obviously, Shatner's social calendar is running on empty if missing Takei's wedding caused him this grief.

A 19-year-old hacker who posted racy photos of Disney starlet Miley Cyrus on the Internet said he was raided by the FBI in Tennessee this week.

The hacker, Josh Holly, bragged openly about obtaining the photos from an email account of the 15-year-old star of "Hannah Montana," and even gave interviews to bloggers and boasted that he moved so often that authorities would never catch him.

"I was just kind of shaking. I was thrown way off guard," he told "I guess somebody ended up ratting me out."

Holly thought he was safe once he crossed outside the borders of the state of Montana, but he should have known that Miley Cyrus can find anyone on the planet as she has spies everywhere.

Per usual, let's finish with some gold image(s):

If you find yourself naked or semi-naked and alone in a forest, don't hesitate to call me as this can be dangerous. So, don't forget to think of others today, keep an eye out for strangers in need and . . . Happy Friday!



  1. Anonymous Says:
  2. Evidence of the Shatner Takei unpleasantness can be seen in the Futurama episode "Where No Fan Has Gone Before"

  3. TROLL Says:
  4. Faith Hill is dead to me now. She blew her chance at Troll Love.

    The Forest Gal still has a shot though. Nice!

  5. "The Big Chill" was about Tipper and I.

  6. WhatIgot - I had no idea they knew the roots and history of the feud on 'Futurama.' I'll have to investigate. Thanks.

    The Troll - I remember thinking that she looked absolutely spectacular in that one vide (Breathe?) several years ago and then had many years of backsliding. But she looks great on that cover. I also like the Forest Gal.

    Al - You can't have everything. Stick with the Internet & leave 'Chill' alone.

  7. Heff Says:
  8. Note to self : When Heff is naked in the forest, call BDS.

    GOT IT !

  9. A.B. Says:
  10. That quote from THE BIG CHILL is one of my all time favorites to say, but I didn't realize it came from that movie.

    Faith Hill - I like her. I wish I had 8 hours a day to look that good, but she's an inspiration.

    Enjoy that sunshine 2$, the rain has started here.

  11. Heff - I think you're taking the wrong message from that offer, however, I must be much clearer with future gestures I suppose.

    A.B. - I bet it was around before then, but I just re-watched the movie this week and heard Berenger said it, so . . . maybe. I love it as well. I will knock back a pint for you this afternoon & hope the rain clears quickly. Happy Friday.

  12. Linda Says:
  13. I love that quote from the Big Chill as well, such a good movie. Faith Hill and Helen Mirren in bikinis are amazing. Makes me want to get to a gym, right up until I see that bag of Cheetoes *sigh* Glad the FBI is watching out for Cyrus, though I think that girl can handle a computer geek with one arm tied behind her back. And I Think I Know Who Killed Me, worst movie ever made, just sayin'. Happy Friday!

  14. Miss Ash Says:
  15. Clearly I need to purchase Shape magazine more often and actually use the tips....she looks great for 41!!

    As for Shatner....who cares?? I loathe weddings, why he is complaining? I'd be happy to be left off the invitation.

  16. Gypsy Says:
  17. You are on fire with your quips this week B....I can't even pick a fave but will make special mention of this one because it was so bad it was good.....I guess the score in their tennis matches was constantly "Over-40 Love." Ouch.

    Ok I have to ask, what is a camel clutch? Is that an American expression? I'm guessing it has something to do with not dropping the soap....Ha ha. Heading off to check the urban dictionary for some help on this one.

    Faith Hill looks amazing in that shot. I'm putting it down to good genes and bucketloads of money because I'm just a bitch like that :)

    Enjoy your weekend and thanks for including the pic I sent you :)

  18. Linda - I thought 'Killed Me' would be awful - thank you for watching it and living to tell the tale. Ha. As far as good movies go, 'Chill' is a favorite of mine. Finally, you're right about Mirren and bikinis too as that was an inspiration. Happy Friday.

    Miss Ash - I bet Faith used a few things not listed in Shape, however, she does look great and you have to admire that dedication. Pilates indeed. ANd I agree about weddings, so Shatner should really just get over it.

    Gypsy - Thanks for the compliment & the pic. It's not easy finding them all the time. Ha. And the Camel Clutch was a reference to an old opponent of Nick's Dad - Hulk - as he used to wrestle a guy called the Iron Shiek who used it. Useless knowledge I guess. Finally, Faith does indeed look great and I'm sure it took a lot of money, time, etc. to get there and I'll just admire from afar. Happy Friday.

  19. What a coincidence: I'm going to be naked in a forest tomorrow. I'll give you a call.

    (You really ought to put some qualifiers on your closing statements!)

  20. Damn. Heff beat me to it.

  21. Awww, fuck'em if they can't take a joke"....That is my motto for life!

    I absolutely love the outfit the girl in the woods has on.

    Happy Friday!

  22. Native Minnow - I know, I know. You really have to go through life using qualifiers I've found lest you wind up getting calls at 3 a.m. from naked dudes in a forest. Selah. Ha.

    TrinabeingTrina - I'm right there with you on the Forest Woman, but don't feel limited just because you're not surrounded by trees. Ha. The city is fine too. And that motto works for almost any situation. Have a good weekend.

  23. JLee Says:
  24. Damn, I missed George Takei's wedding and way to go Faith! Represent!
    Happy belated Friday...

  25. Jlee - Faith looks great, so I guess Pilates it is . . . Happy late Friday back at you.
