This post is written by the guy who's the basis for Ari Gold in Entourage... One of the most powerful agents in town... And it does a pretty good job summarizing why Mel Gibson has to be blackballed...

Go see Little Miss Sunshine...


I usually do really short movie reviews cuz I'm really lazy but I went and saw this yesterday (it's only open in LA and NY right now, but soon to be a phenomenon everywhere)... This is one of the funniest and most touching movies I've seen in a long time and I laughed so hard I literally thought my head would expode... Great ensemble cast, with everyone giving a great performance... Go see it...

Who Wants To Be A Superhero?


Watch this show... Not only is it funny and actually a quality show, but it is produced by and starring Stan Lee... He really is a living legend without peer, and unfortunately did not make much money from the properties he created - Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, X-Men, the Hulk and many more... Let's make this show a success so he can make some big bucks...

Superman is Jewish dammit!

Word on the street is that Warner Brothers (probably because Superman is underperforming) is trying to spin SM as a Christian movie, so they can cash in on all the unthinking masses who would go see it for that reason... But, here's an article that explains the real truth...

Cool McDonald's Ad


This is a good idea... McDonalds put up a billboard in Chicago that has a sundial component... Depending what time of the day it is, the shadow points to the food you want to be eatin... Of course, it only works from 6 AM to noon, but still...

Cool web 2.0 idea of the day: Snacksby


This site still needs more content, but I like the concept... Basically, this site helps give you good ideas for snacks... Even better, if you tell it what you have in the house, it will tell you what you can make from it... However, the content is user-generated and they haven't quite reached critical mass yet, but with any luck, they will...

Snacksby is a really neat recipe site. For serious! | Snacksby
