Rerun Of The Day: Celebs Behaving Badly

Audio recordings of famous people being little bitches. Most of these have been around for years, but if you haven't heard them yet, you're in for a treat. Click the pic to hear someone go off.

Rated R for hilariously foul language.

Jack Palance loves doing voiceover.

Casey Kasem has some issues with a special long-distance dedication to a dog named Snuggles.

William Shatner doesn't like taking direction. But we already knew this from his acting.

Britney Spears doesn't like her band or her concert audience, and says so -- over her mic, so they can hear it. Oopsy.

Cher shares some feelings with paparazzi - and who can blame her?

Crusty old forgotten singer Paul Anka has a wardobe suggestion for his band, and some valuable tips on flying, too!

A classic - Orson Welles peddling fish sticks and hamburgers. I played Lear, goddamn you!!

The Top 10 Baby Names of 2007


From (full article here includes the top 100 for each gender), which explains, "Names are from a database of over 300,000 names given to registered BabyCenter readers' babies born in the United States between January and October of 2007." Not a huge sample, but judging by my child's classmates, they nailed it.

The boys' top ten includes Aiden, Caden and Jayden, but not Hayden or Rayden.

  1. Sophia
  2. Isabella
  3. Emma
  4. Madison
  5. Ava
  6. Addison
  7. Hailey
  8. Emily
  9. Kaitlyn

Videos Of The Day: Extras

This Ricky Gervais series on HBO is long gone -- they did two 6-episode seasons and a wrap-up movie -- but I still watch the reruns when I can, because the show makes me laugh as hard as anything else I've ever seen. Both seasons are on DVD, and I highly recommend them.

If you aren't familiar with "Extras," it starred Ricky as an extra (or "background actor," as he prefers to call himself) whose work brought him and his friend Maggie (Ashley Jensen), also a movie extra, in contact with big-name actors (Kate Winslet, Ian McKellen, Orlando Bloom, etc.). These A-list actors appeared in the show and had great fun sending themselves up.

Some clips...

Andy (Ricky Gervais) auditions for a play directed by Ian McKellen, who explains his complex acting method.

Andy and Maggie talk to Kate Winslet the day after Kate has given Maggie advice about how to talk dirty on the phone with her new boyfriend, who wants her to be more sexually daring.

Andy and Maggie meet David Bowie at a club, and Andy makes the mistake of complaining about the lousy sitcom he's been doing.

Maggie meets Orlando Bloom on a movie set

Daniel Radcliffe hits on Maggie.

Daniel Radcliffe continues his pursuit of Maggie. Extra points if you recognize the older woman (an A-list star herself, once upon a time).
