Pics of Curtis Jackson (A.K.A. 50 Cent) were put out this week that show the rapper after having lost 50+ pounds to play a part in the new film, which he wrote, Things Fall Apart (directed by Mario Van Peebles). In the film, “Fitty” plays a college football player who is diagnosed with cancer.
Now, lesser writers are saying his new name should be 25 Cent. Personally, I think they’ve dropped the dime. I mean, Nickel please! But what do you guys think… a penny for your thoughts.

This guy’s a legend so I’m not going to get cute with this post. I mean he goes back to Rebel Without a Cause for Chrissakes. So, I’ll just say this:
Ride on, Easy Rider!!! Continue reading
That’s right, boys and girls, the 3some game is back… like a bad herpes flare up. For those of you new to the site, here’s a break down (from my last post)of how the game is played:
This brain-child of mine was born out of my boredom for a game couples have been playing for years that shares a name with everyone’s favorite blog: THE LIST. The List, as I’m sure you know, is a game where partners keep an imaginary list of 3 to 5 celebrities in their proverbial back pocket. Should one of the devoted have the opportunity to have a chance encounter with one of the celebrities on their list, their better half would be forced to give them a pass (usually given because there’s no way in hell it could ever really happen).
Not only did I feel this game needed an update, I was also concerned because my wife is very attractive and should she run into Johnny Depp off stage at the taping of a 21 Jump Street reunion show on the VH-1 lot… who knows? I love my wife. And, let’s be honest, once you go Depp, you don’t go back. I know I wouldn’t! No matter how funny, charming, great at writing and hung I may be. So, I’m making the game a bit more difficult by introducing THE THREESOME GAME. Here’s how it came to fruition… Continue reading

It appears Gary Coleman passed away today from a brain hemorrage that was caused from an injury he sustained when he fell and hit his head on Wednesday, May 26. Gary got a little annoying in the later part of his life but I think we can all agree he held a special place in all our childhoods for his work on Different Strokes. If not… what you talkin’ ’bout, Willis?
SORRY… had to do it!!!
It’s time for a new entry into the pantheon of scenes that KICK ASS. The theory behind this post is this…
Some movies have a scene in them that is so awesome it can make the whole film worth watching. A scene that can make a bad film good and a great film better. A scene so good that it KICKS ASS… hence the title of the post. This week, we are featuring a clip from the movie:
Now, I have to apologize for the quality of this video but this is the only scene I could think of that could follow Alec Baldwin in Glengarry Glen Ross. It’s a widescreen version with some Warner Brothers stamps on it and has a Soulja Boy ad at the end but it’s a necessary evil, I’m afraid. So, that all said, I present you with one of my favorite scenes of all time:
That’s it for now, Smokers, Jokers & Midnight Tokers. Feel free to comment below. I never edit any of the comments. Remember, this was meant to be an interactive site, as much as I love the sound of my own voice.
