Extreme Couponing: Savvy or Nuts?
In today's economy (one of the most overused phrases ever), it's becoming more and more important to find ways to save a buck here or there. With the prices of everything from sugar to flour to gas climbing every day (thus making sugar and flour even MORE expensive to transport), most Americans are putting on their creative caps and finding ways to cut back. Taking public transportation instead of driving to work. Brown bagging it instead of going down to the sandwich shop every day. ...

What the Music You Like Says About Your Sex Habits
The music-based dating site Tastebuds recently surveyed its users and found some interesting trends among them. For instance, Coldplay fans are apparently prudes whereas those who dig Nirvana also dig getting laid. As a big music geek myself, this led me to wonder what other correlations exist between musical tastes and sexual proclivities. Rather than waste time doing "research" or "analysis," though, I thought I'd make some observations based on anecdotal evidence I&...

M. Night Shyamalan Preps His Big Comeback with Help from Will Smith
With "The Last Airbender", you could practically hear the "kerplunk" of M. Night Shyamalan's career officially going into the toilet. "Please take me seriously!" Now Will Smith has come along to help him out...and he's bringing his kid. Smith plans to co-produce and co-star in a thus-far-untitled sci-fi film directed by Shyamalan. It's set 1,000 years in the future and follows a young boy and his father whose spaceship crashes on an abandoned Earth....

Evan Rachel Wood and 11 Other Bisexual Female Celebrities
On the heels of actress Evan Rachel Wood's coming out as bisexual, we're digging deeper into the titillating topic in an effort to keep our scholarly readers abreast of the news. The aptly named actress first aroused public interest for her professed love of androgyny and engagement to freakazoid Marilyn Manson. Photo via r9M In the May 2011 issue of Esquire magazine, the 23-year-old reveals she likes to take charge while out on a date with a lady love. "I'm more of like ...

6 Good Guys Who Were Actually Kind of Evil
Is it asking too much for our movie good guys to be, like, good? Sometimes when you take the time to think about it (also known as "utterly wasting time"), our favorite movie heroes did some pretty bad-guy things. Here are six examples. 1. The Ewoks Why they were good guys: Return of the Jedi's fuzzy heroes were cute and cuddly, and a baby one snuggled Han Solo's leg (not in a humping way). Awwww. And they were also inexplicably capable of taking down legions of ...

"I Have a Muthaf@#kin' Dream!"
When your greatest performance is that of a hit man who spouts biblical rhetoric while toting a Smith & Wesson .45, then what other pinnacle role is there but that of the most famous person of your race to hold the title of Reverend? It's not called "The Mountaintop" for nothing. As it turns out Samuel L. Jackson will indeed portray Martin Luther King Jr. in his Broadway debut starting on September 22, in the play with the aforementioned title that is taken from the ...

Rating the Hogwarts Houses: A Muggle's Guide to House Cup Contenders
So as any good Harry Potter fan knows, most of the series takes place at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, a boarding school for young witches and wizards to attend and learn magic. Sweet. The school is separated into four houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, and Slytherin. The houses compete with each other throughout the school year, accumulating points in an attempt to win the House Cup and rub it in the other houses' faces. Yeah! Here's a list of the houses, in order...

6 Reasons Another Blade Runner Might Not Be So Bad
The rights to produce sequels and/or prequels to Ridley Scott's 1982 masterpiece Blade Runner were recently purchased by Alcon Entertainment. Within seconds, the geek universe that worships Blade Runner as a golden god was up in arms with predictable rallying cries of "Worst. Idea. Ever!" But would a sequel or prequel to the movie really be so bad? Here are some reasons to think twice. 1. There's an Entire Universe to Explore When Ridley Scott does sci-fi, he doesn&...

The Stupidest Songs On The Radio Right Now
YouTube sensation Rebecca Black's inane 4-minute nasal yodel "Friday" went into radio circulation this month. Judging by the overwhelmingly negative feedback currently on the official video, you'd think that "Friday" was a sure sign of the pop apocalypse, but let's be honest here, today's radio hits are hardly offering up a gold standard when it comes to lyrical content. Here are some other current, content-challenged radio gems you might consider adding to ...

6 Upcoming Remakes That Shall Die By My Hand
Hating on remakes is like kicking a downed amputee. Nobody likes remakes, and yet Hollywood is churning them out like someone burned everything filmed before 2006 and we need them all back NOW. Yet, I am not wholly against the concept of the remake. John Carpenter's The Thing was a HUGE improvement over The Thing from Another World. Even Ocean's 11 was a well-done reinvention of the Sinatra original, though I have trouble justifying Ocean's 12 through 4,086. But I cannot for the ...

Is This the Year of Britney, Or is She Becoming Irrelevant?
2011 is beginning to look a lot like "The Year of Britney," with her seventh studio album "Femme Fatale" experiencing may-jah success with critics and listeners. It's wild to think that just a few short years ago, she was shaving all her hair off in public, effectively shattering her image. Her lack of underwear and use of an umbrella as a weapon only added to the absurdity. Now, however, Britney is back on top! Her album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Album Charts, ...

Kimberly Stewart Expecting Dr. Gonzo's Baby...Maybe.
In a bit of shocking news that I absolutely shouldn't care anything about, Kimberly Stewart is pregnant and the father is apparently Benicio Del Toro. According to Del Toro's rep, "Benicio is the father and is very supportive. Although they are not a couple, they are looking forward to the arrival of the baby." Crazy, right? Well, this whole thing seems a little fishy to me so I've done some investigating. I'm here to tell you that Benicio Del Toro is NOT the father ...

7 Movies You Wish You Had Made
Jealousy is something we all experience from time to time, despite what anyone says. It could rear its ugly head for many reasons. I get jealous when I think of all the great movies and movie franchises that have been met with tremendous critical and financial success. Here are 7 movies I wish I made and that you wish you had made, too (warning: the following information could turn you a very strong shade of green). 1. Titanic Titanic was the highest grossing movie of all time until ...

7 Reunion Tours That Need to Happen
The New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys will be taking the world (or small suburban arenas) by storm on their summer reunion tour. Although I'm not quite as excited as my 10 year-old self thinks I should be, it got me thinking about what other old school bands I'd like to see reunite and hit the road. Here's a list of groups I think would totally rock a reunion tour or make for a hot mess (both of which would be equally entertaining). 1. Another Bad Creation ABC is the...

What You Can Learn From Celebrity Tax Fails
Years ago, Schoolhouse Rock introduced us to Tax Man Max. Max was a swell guy who informed us that taxes are money that the government collects "for whatever they do." That sounded pretty dubious, even to grade schoolers, but Max rushed on to assure his audience that taxes were paid "so schools can be their best, so our roads will have no cracks." That sounded a lot better, so when my parents complained about taxes later I assumed they were just applying the same stingy, ...
