“I drink your milkshake!” – Daniel Day-Lewis, ‘There Will Be Blood’


‘Blood’ was a good movie that I really never care to see again because it wasn’t particularly enjoyable to sit through since there were no characters to root for, which is always difficult proposition for me.

Regardless, I probably won’t be drinking milkshakes today as I’ve got someone coming over to fix my upstairs heater, plan to do some work, have another phone interview for a potential new gig, and then later, plan to meet my brother for a few beers downtown before attending a CD release concert at Antone’s, a famous blues joint in Austin.

But before any of that occurs, let’s look at the hard stories of the week such as:

Lindsay Lohan was back in the news this week as a vehicle carrying the “Mean Girls” star reportedly struck and injured a photographer in Hollywood.

Web site TMZ.com reported that Lohan’s BMW allegedly struck the photographer at 12:30 a.m. in front of Hotel Cafe in Hollywood on Sunday, and then sped away from the scene. The 23-year-old singer/actress was not driving the vehicle but was inside the car at the time. ‘Entertainment Tonight’ cited the Los Angeles Police Department, and reported that an ambulance was called out to the scene of the accident and EMTs treated the photographers injured hand.


Lohan was heard cackling at the scene, “if they have no hands, they can take no photographs.” She has denied any involvement in the accident.

Channing Tatum told an interviewer for the current issue of ‘Details’ magazine that the actor severely burned his penis during a movie shoot last year.

The actor had been shooting the drama The Eagle of the Ninth last October in the freezing cold Scottish Highlands when the incident occurred.

“The only way to keep warm was by pouring a mix of boiling water and river water down your suit," Tatum, 29, told the magazine. "We were finally done shooting for the day, and one of the crew guys asks if I want to warm up before I go. I'm like, Nah, I'm good. And then I thought, Why not? . . . It just went straight down and pretty much burned the skin off the head of my dick."


I’d have more sympathy for Tatum if he didn’t VOLUNTARILY pour BOILING WATER down his pants, and I’m quite certain that his penis will never, ever forgive him.

Kiefer Sutherland appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman wearing a dress.

The '24' starwore a green sundress and black combat boots on the talk show after losing a bet on a football game.

"I lost a bet over the weekend - I was so sure the New England [Patriots] were going to win that I told a guy who used to be my friend that if New England lost, I would wear a dress on Letterman," he explained.


Sutherland had 24 hours to find matching pantyhose, but failed miserably despite running, sweating and yelling 'get out of the way' on the streets of NYC.

Sony studios announced this week that it has pulled out of "Spider-Man 4" with director Sam Raimi and Tobey Maguire, and the studio plans to reboot the franchise for 2012 with another team -- another actor and director in charge.


Sony also announced that they intend for the reboot to suck.

Conan O’Brien rejected NBC’s attempt to move ‘The Tonight Show’ to a post-midnight slot to accomoate Jay Leno’s return to late-night television.

In a statement Tuesday, O'Brien says that NBC has given him a scant seven months to try to establish himself as host of "Tonight,” and that he hoped that he and NBC could resolve the issue quickly so he could do a show of which he and his crew could be proud — "for a company that values our work."


Meanwhile, I will continue to watch neither of these shows regardless of what time NBC chooses to air them.

Reality star Heidi Montag appeared on the cover of ‘People Magazine’ this week, and admitted that she is obsessed with plastic surgery.

The 23-year-old, who had a rhinoplasty and breast augmentation in 2007, confessed to going under the knife a second time and having 10 procedures in one day, according to People.com.

"For the past three years, I've thought about what to have done," Montag says. "I'm beyond obsessed." She says the plastic surgery is helping her become "the best me" she can be.


Unfortunately, medical science surgical procedures have yet to advance far enough to implant a working brain inside Montag's head.

As always, let’s end with a gold image or three:


I lied. I've actually been so damn busy this week that I couldn't find two other worthy images that weren't hard-core porn. So, take what you can get today, favor quality over quantity and . . . Happy Friday!

  2. Dude, you don't watch the late night shows, c'mon ! You're missing some GREAT comedy this week due to the NBC fiasco !

    Jay Leno should simply be fired, but they won't do that.

    That is all.

     
  3. Gypsy Says:
  4. I admire Kiefer for honouring the bet at least but surely he could have found something a little more in keeping with his budget. That looks like something a grandmother would wear to Bingo.


    Deary me...have celebrities learned nothing from the Michael Jackson legacy of learning when to stop? 10 procedures in one day and she's how old? What could there possibly be to work on since a brain transplant is obviously not an option as you correctly pointed out?


    Nice shot at the end B. I wish you good luck with your phone interview and a happy weekend.

  6. NBC should quit rearranging deck chairs on the sinking Ship that is their network and just ask the Obamanation for another bail-out.

    I had never heard the name "Channing Tatum" prior to reading this. Now, I've decided that he is the Archetype for Generation Yo!.

  8. The NBC fiasco sucks for O'Brien. The dude's waited how long for this gig and Leno's being a whiner about wanting to come back? At least O'Brien's handling it as much dignity as a comedian can. Happy Friday, $$.

     
  9. nobich Says:
  10. Happy Friday! & I never understood the big whoop over Jay Leno. Just say bye...

     
  11. It's okay that you only had one picture at the end. All I can think about is that guy scalding his dick anyway.

     
  12. Heff - I just have never watched them very much at all. Whenever something big happens, I just see the clips online . . . but I heard Jimmy Kimmel was giving Leno grief this week and it was pretty funny. Happy Friday.

    Gypsy - I do to on Sutherland, and really, no guy looks good in a dress (though you're right about the grandmotherly quality of his). Celebrities never learn anything about surgery except that more is often better. :) Glad you liked the image & Happy Friday Gypsy.

    Troll Y2K - NBC is in trouble. Period. He could be a poster child for sure. I think there's probably a few better ones out there, but my brain is slow today & none are springing to mind. Happy Friday.

    Bostonpobble - Yeah, Conan's doing the best he can, and Leno is just trying to hang onto something that he already vacated. I don't care that much, but am curious how it will all play out. Happy Friday Pobble.

    Nobich - Happy Friday to you, and Leno never did anything for me either.

    Native Minnow - Thanks and yeah, I still am really surprised that something like that can happen . . . I have the mag since I have a subscription to Details, so I plan to read the article to see if there's more of an explanation. Regardless, Happy Friday.

  14. So you're getting your heater fixed just in time for it to get warm, eh? haha
    I had heard most of these stories except the Kiefer Sutherland one. That is pretty damn funny. I cringed when I heard that Channing Tatum story. I'm sure some dumbass P.A. got fired for that stunt. "Here let me pour this scalding water on you"

    Have a great weekend...

  16. no guy looks good in a dress? try sean connery in a fine scottish kilt!

    the various tonight shows are barely a step up from entertainment tonight: one long ass commercial for the most vapid spoiled over paid narcissists on earth!
    for my late-night entertainment i far prefer the daily show and colbert report.

    i truly am disgusted by the worship of actors and celebrities in this nation. our forefathers threw off the shackles of the aristocracy and then promptly put them back on in valuing the purveyors of fairytales.

    i. drink. your. MILKSHAKE! i will never watch there will be blood again. i am in full agreement with your assessment. generally an unpleasant experience. after viewing the movie i had a few days of generalized anxiety which i medicated myself with copious squirts from my naturopathic sub lingual anti anxiety spray.

    have a nice weekend. good luck on the gig.

     
  17. K9 Says:
  18. meant to type "then we, as in now' put the shackles back on....

     
  19. Linda Says:
  20. Love There Will be Blood and own it. Tough stuff, but great high drama. Good on Conan for taking a stand. NBC should be ashamed. Best part of Kiefer in a dress was that he couldn't figure out how to sit, dress was almost too short. Very funny. All I can say is Lindsay, Lindsay, Lindsay .... the train wreck goes on. Have a great weekend and Happy Friday!!

     
  21. Boxer Says:
  22. Bwahahahaha to everything K9 said. I "enjoyed" "There Will Be Blood" but I needed two drinks before and AFTER. Visually, it was striking and DDLewis in the last scene was horrible/amazing.

    New gig? Moving on up, young man? Good luck and have a productive weekend.

    Can anyone answer this for me? Did Leno retire last year? When NBC announced Conan would be taking over The Tonight Show in 2004, I thought Leno knew? Why is Leno back, even at 10:00? Color me confuzzled. Bring me back forty versions of Law and Order!!

     
  23. Jlee - Great word ver . . . And yeah, I know on the heater right? Murphy's Law. Oh well, at least it was under warranty or I would have been out several thousand bucks. Finally, that guy who poured the water was defintely fired. Ha. But I hold Tatum to blame as well. Happy Friday Jlee.

    K9 - Appreciate the detail, so you're right about Connery but that man could pull off virtually anything and a kilt is not technically a dress (or is it?), I don't watch either of those types of shows, however, without Hollywood narcissists QHF would not exist, so I enjoy that aspect. Ha. As for 'Blood' you are correct as some libations (sp?) were definitely in order, and probably something stronger than a milkshake. Thanks on the gig as interviewing is a particular skill that gets rusty so it's nice to dust it off occasionally, and Happy Friday K9.

    K9 - Ha. Appreciate the correction/edit . . .

    Linda - Wow. You watched 'Blood' twice . . . you have my respect. Ha. I've tried to get it up to rent it once and have failed miserably (just saw it in the theater). And you knew Lohan would be back on QHF sooner rather than later. And yes, you're right about Sutherland as he looked a bit uncertain about how to sit. Ha. Happy Friday.

    Boxer - Agreed on 'Blood.' I don't know about moving up, but this interview process has been nothing short of a full body cavity search and I will post about it in the future. It's for a company that everyone on the planet has heard of . . . As for Leno, I think - think - that he retired from the Tonight Show, but never "retired" from late night. Clear as mud? I don't really know, but it seems that he never really wanted to vacate the post, but NBC and him agreed on an end date and now he wants it back since his earlier time slot bombed and Conan's ratings aren't super-high and NBC doesn't know what the hell it's doing. Whew. I think that's somewhat close to the truth, but don't quote me. Happy Friday Boxer.

     
  24. sorry I'm a day late!

    I don't really know who Channing Tatum is, but I cringe for him just thinking about that... ouch!


    And Heidi just looks sick now. I thought she was a wee bit pretty before, but now she's funny looking. I can't quite figure out what it is though.

    Happy weekend, BDS.

     
  25. Miss Ash Says:
  26. Lovely photo good choice!

    As for Sutherland I love how he says a man who "used" to be my friend" Ha!

     
  27. I don't watch those silly talk shows either. And it bothers me a little that they use their troubles with their bosses as comedic fodder on the air. Seems a little unprofessional to me.

    Sony. Let's see. Three successful movies in a row. New team? Are you insane? Sounds like it. Probably going to hire James Cameron or something. I think I'm already willing to miss it.

     
  28. Kymical Reactions - That's fine on the tardiness as it's busy getting back in the swing after the holidays. I agree about Montag as she just looks a bit off now like someone who has had too much plastic surgery. Go figure. Ha. Happy Friday.

    Miss Ash - Thanks on the image as it was a struggle this week. But I persevered through intense dedication. Ha. And yeah, I liked the verb tense by Keifer too. Happy Friday.

    Getoffmylawn - I bet Sony wouldn't pay what Cameron would want for it. Just guessing. But it does seem like a bizarre decision all the way around. As for the late night fodder, the whole thing just generally bores me. Every once in awhile something is really funny, and then I'll just find the clip on the Web. Happy Friday.
