Quote of the Day: “Button your lip, baby/Button your coat/Lets go out dancing/Go for the throat…” “Mixed Emotions” by the Rolling Stones
I know the Christian Bale rant is sorta old news, but it still makes me laugh like a deranged, masochistic 4-year-old getting tickled by his favorite aunt.
This clip combines two of my favorite things, Christian Bale’s on-set breakdown and The Family Guy.
This is remix culture at it’s best, as far as I’m concerned, snide, funny, a little mean…fabulous!
I promise, after the original, after the lady in the airport, and now today, there will be no more tantrum posts…Well, not until the next one…!
Quote of the Day: “Sing your life/Any fool can think of words that rhyme…” — “Sing Your Life” by Morrissey
Thursday is info day at SCOTT TOPICS…I like to share all the news I hear about with you busy people who have better things to do than read the tabs and surf the net! Well, not better, but probably better-paid!
Anyway, where do we start?
With American Idol? Were Randy and Simon serious about giving that Bikini Girl so many chances? I mean, I know she’d make a good Replacement Pussycat Doll, but come on, already, she ain’t even that cute, using her “looks” as she does to get to the next level of the competition. Good thing that drama finally came to an end last night.
Here’s her original audition:
But what bothered me even more than the caveman antics of the guys was Paula acting like a thin voice and good body didn’t do it for her 35 years ago. Earth to Paula: You. Were. A. Laker Girl! Sure you could dance, but don’t act like you didn’t sell some sizzle when you were climbing the ladder—and don’t act like that kat Ace
a coupla seasons ago didn’t get through cause he turned you on and turned you out! Okay…rant done, soapbox set on fire. For all those real AI
fans who loved Elliot Yamin as much as I did, he has a new website with music etc, that you should check out. It’s fun. Go here
to experience it.
Or Ugly Betty? She may be be getting “hiatus-ed” as they say in TV Land but before that happens Betty’s getting a new love interest—and he’s coming with Mommy Issues, apparently. Why else would they cast that great, sarcastic, urbane, firecracker of Lady-dom—Christine Baranski—to play his Mama? Baranski’s the best, kids, and will surely strike up some sparks with any and every character she encounters. More info here…
Or Christian Bale’s on-set tirade? (Which you might have heard here.) His mother has commented. She understands his anger. He’s a perfectionist. Guess Mom is just prepping for the next family dinner. I’d hate to be there if he’s not feeling her Yorkshire Pudding.
Or Hottie and Sophomore Undercover, the two YA novels I’m most looking forward to this year? Hottie’s about a cool Beverly Hills princess who ends up a fire-shooting superhero, and was written by an old buddy from the SPIN mag days, wit-about-town Jonathan Bernstein (who blogs here). Sophomore Undercover sounds like the late, lamented Veronica Mars if VM was an adopted Vietnamese kid who fancies himself an investigative reporter. Ben Esch, Sophomore’s author has some interesting ideas about book marketing using video games.
Have you heard the one about the actor who loses it on the set? No? Well, I haven’t either. That’s cause it’s not a joke. Christian Bale (Batman in The Dark Knight, the lead in American Psycho) verbally rips into the Director of Photography for getting, apparently, in Christian’s method-actor-y line of sight, on the set on the new Terminator flick.
If you like tantrums the way I like tantrums, ya gotta listen to this! By the by, wasn’t Bale the actor who’s mother and sister called the cops on him this past summer on some abuse charges? I’m just sayin…
for the tantrum. And turn it down if there are kids–or testy co-workers–around…
