While major media outlets like the New York Times and the SF Chronicle are busy interviewing PR agents to see if good ol' smelly Mel's antisemitic tirade is going to affect his career (now there's an angle for some real investigative reporting!!), we here at the Guardian have uncovered our own global Gibson conspiracy: Mel Gibson himself is responsible for starting almost every war known to man! Think about it. Read more »

Except we're not mean drunks who hurl offensive slurs at the cops when they pull us over...

Nor are we holding up the production of our latest major motion picture with our underage shenanigans ...

We were, however, enticed into some unfortunate wedding reception dance-floor Read more »

Clearly, the good shit's happening THIS week

Pardon the slow post, but last week's Project Runway was kinda on the ho-hum side. (Of course, it's still the best reality show currently on the airwaves, so a ho-hum Runway is still better than the greatest-ever Rock Star: Supernova, if in fact a greatest-ever ep of that show ever existed.

1) Nicolas Cage to star in Liberace biopic. (Via TMZ via Hollywood Wiretap.) I can't decide if I'm excited or horrified, frankly.

2) A Barney Fife statue, set to be erected in Mount Airy, NC (basis for the fictional Mayberry, setting for The Andy Griffith Show) has been destroyed before it was finished. Why? Read more »

I'm in so much shock over this week's Project Runway elimination that it took me an extra day to post. How sad was saying goodbye to Malan -- who was edited to look like a potential villain in the casting special, a snob in episode one ... and a sob-story softie in episode two, his swan song?

Praised be to the gods of fashion and addictive reality television ... season three of Project Runway is here.
