Quick Hit Friday . . .

Posted by 2 Dollar Productions Friday, February 06, 2009

"Let me be your Sherpa. Let me be your Sherpa up the mountain of gay," Justin Long, "Zack and Miri Make a Porno."

That was a pretty funny scene in 'Zack and Miri,' although my favorite line concerns Glengarry Glen Ross, but I don't care to ruin it in case someone wants to rent the film.

I plan to forsake the movies today as I took the day off from work (we get a paid vacation day to take around our birthday), and get outside since it's sunny and in the 60s. Why not? But before I decide on my exact plans, let's look at the hard stories of the week such as:

Disney teen idol Miley Cyrus was accused of taunting and mocking Asians by making slant-eye poses in a personal photograph with her friends. The picture of the "Hannah Montana" star and friends posing with an Asian friend and pulling their eyes sideways surfaced on the Internet this week.

The OCA, a national organization in the United States dedicated to advancing the social and political welfare of Asian Pacific Americans, called on the singer-actress to apologize. The group said the image "falls within a long and unfortunate history of people mocking and denigrating individuals of Asian descent."

Meanwhile, officials in the state of Montana have also called for an apology from Cyrus for causing them shame because her behavior ""falls within a long and unfortunate history of people mocking and denigrating individuals from Montana."

Hilary Duff and Faye Dunaway got into a war of words this week concerning Duff's participation as Bonnie in the upcoming movie titled: The Story of Bonnie and Clyde. Dunaway starred as Bonnie along with Warren Beatty in the famous "Bonnie and Clyde."

Dunaway started the feud when she responded to the news of the new film with: "Couldn't they at least cast a real actress?"

Duff retorted: "I think it was a little unnecessary, but I might be mad if I looked like that now, too."

Ouch. Both of these put-downs were light-years ahead of Jennifer Aniston's "uncool" insult concerning Angelina Jolie a few months ago.

In other female feuding, singer Etta James ripped into Beyonce this week for singing one of her songs during Barack Obama's inauguration in Washington D.C.

The legendary singer, 71, said during a concert in Seattle that " . . . She’s going to get her ass whooped ... Beyonce … I can’t stand Beyonce.”

Perhaps Beyonce's ass merely needs a firm spanking instead of a "whooping," and if that's the case, then I'll volunteer my services as I have a healthy respect for discipline.

Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee's helicopter was reportedly pulled over mid-flight by the LAPD Sunday after it flew underneath and "too close" to an LAPD chopper.

Lee, who was riding shotgun, was released. His pilot, David Martz, was located by cops at a nearby hotel approximately ten minutes after the landing, where he was reportedly suspected of drinking.

This might be the first time that Lee was questioned by police, and he wasn't the drunk one.

An audio clip of "Batman" star Christian Bale lashing out verbally against a crew member on the set of “Terminator: Salvation” surfaced this week. The audio tape from the reported July 2008 incident just emerged, allegedly featuring Bale spewing profanity at “Terminator: Salvation” director of photography, Shane Hurlbut.

“I want you off the f***ing set, you pr***,” Bale reportedly says.

“I’m sorry,” Hurlbut reportedly replies.

“No, don’t just be sorry. Think for one f***king second,” Bale reportedly shouts. “What the f*** are you doing? Are you a professional or not?”

The man said to be Bale appears to grow angrier as Hurlbut replies to him in a calm tone, “Yes, I am.”

“No, no. Am I gonna f***ing rip your lights down in the middle of the scene? Then why the f***are you walking right through, ‘Duh-duh-duh-duh-duh,’ in the background,” the man said to be Bale, sing-songs. “What the f*** is it with you? What the f*** don’t you understand?”

Jeez - Bale might be a good actor, but what a fucking asshole.

Britney Spears’ “Circus” tour was almost cancelled this week as the pop star was willing to call it off if she couldn't see her children while she’s on the road — but now the boys will accompany her.

Spears' Web site posted a message Monday night saying that "both Sean Preston and Jayden James will, in fact, be joining Britney throughout the duration of her tour."

In a subsequent statement, Sean Preston and Jayden James pleaded: "Somebody help us. For the love of God, help us!"

Jennifer Aniston rescued a dog who was roaming loose on a busy Los Angeles street last week, and this week revealed that she has a personal personal connection to the canine.

Aniston told Access Hollywood that she was driving in Beverly Hills when “a dog darted out in the middle of Sunset [Blvd.]. People didn’t seem like they were stopping.”

The star approached the “beautiful Husky” that she did not recognize, but then "The dog that we rescued happened to be Chris McMillan’s,” Aniston explained. McMillan is a celebrity hairdresser who Aniston has worked with before.

This story shows just how pitifully slow the news was inside of Hollywood this week.

As always, let's end with a gold image or in this case, three of them:

This seemed like a fine series, although I found all of them individually through painstaking research, dedication and with a critical eye. So, remember that good things come in threes, don't get yourself cuffed to anything you can't walk away from and . . . Happy Friday!



  1. I heard that Bale tape. I don't think it was him. It did not at all sound like the raspy goofy angry voice of Bale as Batman.

  2. Heff Says:
  3. As long as Tommy Lee's helicopter was more at length than "Penis distance", I see no harm, no foul.

    Have a good weekend, 2Dollar.

  4. nobich Says:
  5. Happy Friday Guys!! Oh & the temp here is 12 degrees thank you very much!! Although it's suppose to "warm up" this weekend.

  6. WhatIgot - Nice description of his Batman voice as I found it distracting as it was nearly comical . . . unintentionally I assume. I need to listen to the tape.

    Heff - That would be a far length I guess, but safety first, eh? Have a hell of a good weekend yourself.

    Nobich - Happy Friday to you. That's too bad about the weather as I'm in short sleeves down here. Ha. But at least it's Fridays, so things could be worse. Enjoy.

  7. Boxer Says:
  8. Is it just me, or is the celeb world kinda angry this week? Nice old ladies threatening to kick someone's ass, over paid actors who are WORKING ranting, and honestly.... Hilary Duff???? OK, now I'm getting cranky.


    Happy Friday - Have a great vak-ay day.

  9. BostonPobble Says:
  10. Am I think only one who thinks Etta's words were in jest and she was just talking smack?

    Happy Friday and Happy Celebrate You Birthday By Not Going To Work Day, too!

  11. Linda Says:
  12. That reunion scene in Zach and Miri was the best part of the movie. Justin Long was a riot! Why would anyone want to hurt Beyonce? That Tommy Lee story is too funny, only because no one got hurt. I think stars go off on movie sets more than we know, I doubt Bale is alone in his tirade. He still could use a little anger management. Happy Friday!!

  13. Boxer - I thought the same thing myself as people are getting cranky, especially the women. At least the put-downs were pretty entertaining and mean, which helped. Ha. Happy Friday to you.

    Bostonpobble - I think I heard on the news this morning (after the post) that James is saying that she was just kidding. I probably should investigate, however, I'm not that invested in it. Ha. But good call on your part. Have a good weekend.

    Linda - I bet you're right about the on-set tirades, although Bale seems like he is more tightly-wound than most from things I've read. Actually, I agree about 'Zack and Miri' and the Lee thing as well, so we're 100% in alignment today. Ha. Happy Friday.

  14. nobich Says:
  15. I heard just a tape of Etta James speaking I thought she sounded like she was smiling/ kidding around but I really can't say.

  16. TROLL Says:
  17. I liked the gold images.

  18. slopmaster Says:
  19. What's the big deal about doing the whole asian slanty eyed thing? When I stick a cucumber down my pants and pretend to be black no one gets offended.

    Britney spears... where did society go wrong. At least she'll always be at home in Louisiana


  20. I have to admit: Hilary Duff has earned three respect points from me. She was at zero before so maybe there's hope for her.

  21. Nobich - Thanks for the report as I need to listen, although if you're going to say stuff like that then your voice better convey that you're kidding. Ha.

    TheTroll - Thanks as sometimes they work better than others, and I found all of these on different occassions (yet they seemed to fit well together in one package).

    Slopmaster - Man, I know you hate the word verification, but I"m too lazy to switch over to WordPress or something. Ha. As for Spears, I don't think her parents did a particularly good job even though she's far more sane now than the past few years. Finally, I bet the cucumber thing might not work out that well in your current locale.

    Getoffmylawn - I know. Usually celeb verbal smackdowns are lame, but the Duff/Dunaway was fairly amusing. I can respect lashing back out if someone attacks first.

  22. Romany Angel Says:
  23. I thought that was a sensational comeback from Ms Duff. I mean Ms "Cranky Pants" Dunaway may be right but jeez, you don't have to say everything you think.

    The second pic in the golden images is very sexy.

    Have a great weekend and enjoy your day off. Btw I didn't miss the reference to your birthday. Has it been and gone or is it coming up?

  24. Miss Ash Says:
  25. Didn't Cyrus say that she and her friends always make goofy faces or something...but why then was the Asian man in the photo just sitting there and not making the same "funny" face :|

    As for Bale, yup he sounded like a big asshole...a big hot asshole, but an asshole nonetheless.
