Max Kellerman Speaks Truth About Joe Paterno Statue (TMZ)

The Joe Paterno statue is coming down, and Max Kellerman tells TMZ that it’s “about time.” It’s always nice to hear someone speak the truth, especially when it’s so obvious and so few people are saying it.

The whole culture of JoePa worship has baffled me since I became aware of it. I’ve been saying for years that I believe college football is inherently corrupt. Read more »

James Holmes’ Father Goes To Colorado, and Reflections on TV News, TMZ, and Kids Doing Journalism

You need to a flashplayer enabled browser to view this YouTube video

James Holmes, the man accused of shooting dozens of people at a screening of The Dark Knight Rises, will get a visit from his father.

From where did I get this news? TMZ.

Yes, that TMZ. Weird Al did a song parody of Taylor Swift’s ‘You Belong With Me’ called ‘TMZ’ on his recent album Alpocalypse. Whenever I hear “TMZ”, I think of that song. (This is why there’s a Weird Al video at the top of this post.) I certainly don’t think “trenchant news reporting”. So I was surprised to find that this particular TMZ broadcast did a nice job of reporting on the Colorado shooting.

Here are some of my thoughts about the awful event in Colorado, how it was covered in the media, and kids practicing the ancient art of journalism from their bedrooms.  Read more »

Did Kelsey Grammer Avoid His Kids? [Gossip]

Apparently Kelsey Grammer, who played Stinky Pete in ‘Toy Story 2‘ (c’mon, he was awesome), is getting divorced again. And according to his soon-to-be ex, he may not be the world’s greatest dad.

TMZ say:

We’re told the tipping point for Camille was Father’s Day, when Kelsey was 2,475 air miles away from his family and didn’t call his kids.

Not that we have any inside knowledge of this nonsense, but on Father’s Day, it’s nice to call him, instead of making dad call you.

And not to take sides here, but this quote seemed a bit off:

As one source said, “She doesn’t know what Kelsey is doing in New York, but he’s made it pretty clear he wants nothing to do with marriage anymore,” adding, “She didn’t see it coming.”

OK, maybe she didn’t see it coming. But she didn’t know what he was doing in New York? He’s doing a musical on Broadway. Go visit the guy!

Rihanna Wearing Military Mickey Mouse Ears

Oh, and apparently her nipple is showing. Not posting the pics because they aren’t ours, but here’s what TMZ says:

While on the set of her latest video outside L.A. the other day, Rihanna wore her favorite Mickey Mouse ears helmet and unknowingly flashed one of her weapons.

By “weapons” they mean her, ahem. Cans.

Then they said this:

RiR’s bullet bra proved she’s armed and scandalous.

I have no idea what that means.

She’s a lovely young woman but the Mickey Mouse ears helmet is odd. I guess being super hot and having a good voice isn’t enough anymore.

Lingerie Football Live at TMZ

This is… odd. More proof that there are many good looking people in California, but smarts are in short supply.

And yes, this is a live stream as of this writing. It appears to be tryouts or drills or something. They’re not in lingerie at the moment, maybe that’s only for games. See, football is a rough sports. I hope those girls don’t hurt themselves.
