News Story Of The Day: Stephen Baldwin Demoted

From The Onion.



Stephen Baldwin's Personal Assistant Promoted To Stephen Baldwin

June 2, 2009 | Issue 45•23

LOS ANGELES—After two years of performing management and coordination tasks at an "exceptional level," Stephen Baldwin's personal assistant, Matthew Phillips, was rewarded for his efforts when he agreed to take over the position of Stephen Baldwin Thursday.

"We really wanted to hire from within for this opening, and Matthew was a natural choice," said publicist Melina Disanto, adding that the 33-year-old Phillips is the first person who comes to mind when she thinks of Stephen Baldwin.

"Although this new position doesn't come with a pay raise or more benefits, it actually has fewer responsibilities than Matthew's old job."

According to Stephen Baldwin sources, Stephen Baldwin applied for the Stephen Baldwin personal assistant position but was turned down.


Photoshops Of The Day

Well lookee here -- Daisy had a little fun with the C.D. photo I posted last week. The last one is my favorite.








Vid Of The Day: Love Coupon (NSFW)

I had a college gf who used to give me these. Wonder if I still have them. How funny would that be, 20+ years later? "Hey, remember me? Yeah, you still owe me a 'world-class BJ' in your Olivia Newton-John 'Let's Get Physical' jazzercise outfit. If you don't have it anymore, I'll find you one. Here's my address..."

From Funny Or Die.

In the immortal words of Hall & Oates, "They're watching you. They see your every move." From Flabbergastedly.






































Ass-Whuppin' Of The Day (video)

From "Lonesome Dove," one of the greatest things I've ever seen on TV. I loved the book by Larry McMurtry, and the miniseries brought it to life with incredible faithfulness and passion. A great cast didn't hurt, either. It won a buttload of Emmys as I recall, and rightly so.

Context for this clip: Newt (Rick Shroeder) is Woodrow's (Tommy Lee Jones) illegitimate son, but Woodrow won't admit it. At least not in word.



And here's a bonus ass-whuppin' (and another great scene). Since it's Monday and all.



Obligatory pimpery.

WTF?! Commercial Of The Day: Mac's (NSFW-ish)

You see a spot like this and think, "Ok, what the fuckityhell is that?" Then someone tells you that Mac's is (was?) a convenience store chain in Canada. And you say, "Oh. Canada. Ok."


Vid Of The Day: Play Him Off, KC

Gawd. Change your tampon and STFU already.


Movie & TV Locations On Google Street View

Ever wonder where they shoot exteriors in some movies and TV shows? Too bad, because I do. Here are some real-life iconic locations from the street view function on Google Maps (which is not the same thing as Google Earth).

Fight Club

The hose scene

Vertigo

Jimmy Stewart's apartment

Boogie Nights

Donut shop robbery scene with Don Cheadle

Six Feet Under

Fisher Funeral Home

"What's in the box?!"

Pretty Woman

Balcony scene at the end

Miss Daisy's house

Back To The Future

The McFly house

Lethal Weapon

They jump off this building in one of the movies. They jump off something in every movie, usually with an explosion right on their heels.

Halloween

Where Jamie Lee is babysitting. Is this where the murders happen? I can't remember.

Fast Times At Ridgemont High

Brad and Stacy's house. They had a pool, as I recall. Heh heh.

Fight Club

Edward Norton goes to a 12-step meeting

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

The sculpture from a scene I don't remember.

Close Encounters Of The Third Kind

Devil's Tower, alien landing site and subject of drawings and mashed potato sculptures. Looks almost like a painting, doesn't it?

Rosemary's Baby

The apartment building where they all lived. This is also where John Lennon was murdered IRL.

The Brady Bunch

The Brady house -- three bedrooms for 8 people. Four, if you count Alice, but hers was more like a closet off the washroom. I never understood why she didn't quit.

Boogie Nights

The titular disco at the beginning of the movie.

"Can you say.. adobe?"
