News: Paris Hilton, Supernova, Annie Lennox, Massachusetts

road.jpg Massachusetts gay marriage supporters "scramble to change minds on Beacon Hill" as vote on proposed amendment banning gay marriage approaches: "They are inviting skeptical lawmakers into the homes of recently married gay couples, holding ice cream socials, distributing pro-gay marriage DVDs and even asking the state’s congressional delegation to appeal directly to legislators who may be on the fence."

Supernovaroad.jpg Scientists spot massive supernova 240 million light-years from Earth: "Of all the exploding stars ever observed, this was the king. We were astonished to see how bright it got, and how long it lasted." 50 billion times brighter than the sun.

Hiltonroad.jpg Paris Hilton plans to present a petition to California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger asking for a pardon following a judge's order that she spend 45 days incarcerated for driving violations. The petition reads, in part: "We, the American public who support Paris, are shocked, dismayed and appalled by how Paris has been the person to be used as an example that Drunk Driving is wrong. We do not support drunk driving or DUI charges. Paris should have been sober. But she shouldn't go to jail, either. She provides hope for young people all over the U.S. and the world. She provides beauty and excitement to (most of) our otherwise mundane lives." Where to begin?

road.jpg 16-year-old daughter of Annie Lennox trashes home while mum is away: 'At first it was just lamps being knocked over and drinks being spilled. But as things got worse people were urinating on the carpet in the corner of the living room, then there was graffiti being scrawled on and even etched into the walls, pictures were being taken down and damaged, CDs went missing, books were taken off bookshelves and pages were inexplicably ripped out. Lola's friends were totally outnumbered and the gate-crashers would not leave. The front door was locked shut to make sure no one else could get in, but the ones outside actually rammed it in, breaking its hinges. There was a fight in the garden, someone had deliberately filled the sink with detergent and let it run over so it flood the place. There was vomit on the stairs, and cigarette burns on the carpets, cans and bottles strewn inside and out. The place was a like a bombsite." (via a socialite's life)

  1. Where to start

    The supernova= cool. To creationists out there/ young earthers.....the light we are seeing from it is 24,000,000 year old light so the whole 6,000 yrs since god stuck his magic finger in the mud has a problem

    paris hilton= oy vey crazyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

  3. RIP Curtis. As well as directing, he can be seen playing the part of Cesare the Somnambulist in Kenneth Anger's classic Inauguration of the Pleasure Dome.

  4. Good heavens, that Paris Hilton petition can't be real! If it is, Arnold should seal her up in a bank vault and drop her in the ocean. Ugh. What a skank.

    Brad as He-Man - um, does he really need to take that job? Maybe he was a big fan as a kid or something. Personally I think Dolph Lundgren was just right for the original.

    As far as Annie Lenox's daughter - wow, that's classic teen misbehavior. I think there was a Partridge Family episode where the same thing happened.

  5. It's so inspirational to witness a star self destruct in such a glorious way....

    But enough about Paris.

    Oh, that supernova is cool too!

  6. Didn't that publicity leech get fined before finally having her damn license suspended? What the hell does she consider a warning, anyway? As if she wouldn't follow Li'l Kim's lead and do a reality series about going to jail anyway.

    He-Man? Only my Dolph Lundgren can EVER fill that role.

  7. Maybe we could get a petition for Schwartzenegger to send Paris to a deserted island somewhere where there are no TV cameras.

  8. Wow. I had no idea how mundane my life really was until I read this bit about Paris. I am really grateful that she was able to be remind me of my place in this big cold world.

    I should send her flowers. But I bet the guards will tear up the card and say they are from them. Everyone wants to ask her out, ya know. Isn't that what all of this is about?

    Not obeying the law or posing a danger to the public, but her being a spoiled little tart that every law enforcement official wants to do.

  9. Paris Hilton and her parents better get over themselves. No one give a shit about her. Let that slut-whore serve her time. That spoiled little cunt.

  10. Does the fact that Peyton Manning was at the White House dinner for the Queen mean that he is a Repugnican?

    Posted by: peterparker | May 8, 2007 1:37:07 PM

  11. Arnold will of course sign the pardon because they're only asking for him to excuse her DUI, not allow her to marry someone of the same sex. What a waste of news and oxygen!

  12. Gerard Butler should be HeMan.

    as for Paris, let's hope she makes a run for it.

    OMG Mark, hilarious. I love it. Thanks for the laugh...

    As for Annie Lennox's daughter, I highly doubt there was anything "Partridge Family" about people peeing on carpets and crashing front doors down. That must have been a sight. Lord, kids these days are starting to frighten me more than Republikkklans and Reichen...

  14. She probably could have gotten a lighter sentence if she hadn't shown up to court 10 minutes late thus showing total disrespect for the law, the court, and the judge.

    Mark M LOL that was funny

    Posted by: pacificoceanboy | May 8, 2007 1:48:06 PM

  15. We, the American public who support Reichen, are shocked, dismayed and appalled by how Reichen has been the person to be used as an example that Gold Digging is wrong. We do not support gold digging or BAF [Being A Phony] charges. Reichen should have been honest about his inability to keep his ass in his pants. But he shouldn't be laughed at, either. He provides hope for young people all over the U.S. and the world. He provides beauty and excitement to (most of) our otherwise mundane lives. Thank you, and God bless plastic surgery.

  16. I guess Lola was walking on broken glass.

  17. Well...I answered my own question about Peyton Manning. A quick search of revealed that Peyton Manning, employed by the Indianapolis Colts, contributed $2000 to the re-election campaign of George W. Bush and $4,200 to the campaign of Bob Corker (R-TN). Looks like Manning is a bona-fide Repugnican.

  18. When the Ocean’s 11 franchise dies out Brad Pitt will have to start taking his clothes off again to put food on the table for his ever-growing family. I agree he’s to small for He-Man but he’d make a perfect Joey Steffano in a bio-pic. A natural brunette Brad, naked, as the worlds greatest bottom.

    Posted by: ggreen | May 8, 2007 2:20:04 PM

  19. Yes, Peter, Herr Manning is a Repug [a sports star AND a Repug—AKA "Cyd's Wet Dream."] That $2000 to the 2004 Bush reelection campaign doesn’t sound like much from a gazillionaire but it was the legal limit. The Corker donations were probably the max, too [spread between primary and general elections]. Corker was elected to the Senate last November in a dirty, racist campaign against Dem. Harold Ford in which both candidates tried to out antigay the other. Tennessee concurrently passed an amendment to their state constitution banning gay marriage which Corker and Ford both supported. It was a shameful day for both sides [Ford was a pig, too], but the Repugs won the sleaze award by a wide margin with a racist TV ad portraying Black Ford as priapismic for blond white women [“Harold, call me!”]. Corker called for it to be pulled but closet Repugfag Ken Mehlman initially said he couldn’t stop it even tho he paid for it.

    Perhaps Manning only supported Corker after he saw this pic involving Corker’s daughter:

  20. Well, Brad was looking for a great gay role to play and a JS biopic would be a start, though he's a bit old now.

    Did the WH ignore all the rumors about Peyton's love life?

  24. Ok.....I know we are in the age of outragiousness by **personalities** but surely this petition is a joke.
    If it isn't.....God help us.

    Anon....what rumours about Peytons sex life???
