suri, you can't be Serious
Mark Ebner's Hollywood scandal sheet is always a fun read, but it gets even better when it contains a detailed report of an encounter between Mr. Top Gun and a gay escort known as Big Red that is alleged to have occured during the filming of Eyes Wide Shut. If the account is to be believed, Tom is a wrestling fan and likes his opponents to have a happy ending. Oh, and from the same account we also learn that Garth Brooks is allegedly a bottom. Big Red claims he had to pop some Viagra for that because it was like fucking a whale. Gives a whole new twist to the the phrase 'I've got friends in low places.' Don't it?
Fly the Friendly Skies
An entrepeneur in Atlanta has started 'mile high' flights. For $299 you get an hour flight in their specially-equipped ( meaning it has a bed ) Piper. You get a bottle of champagne and you get to keep the sheets. I assume this is simply because they don't wish to launder them. I don't know how I feel about this. If you don't cram yourself into a tiny little bathroom, risking bruises and the wrath of the flight attendents, not to mention the Transportation Safety Administration, what's the point? I mean if you're allowed to do it, doesn't that take some of the luster off of the achievement?
Million Mime March
An attempt by Virgin Mobile to create a 'viral' site to hawk their new enny texting. Just go straight to the Mimulator game and skip the shill on the other pages. In this game you're a mime. Your goal is to maintain your self-esteem by blocking the insults and indignities hurled at you by the non-sensitive non-mimes.
Play well, it's hard to see a grown mime cry.
