Hollywood Babble On & On #679: Random Snarks...

Welcome to the show folks...

Slow day for the sort of business news I like to rant and rave about so I'm just going to snark like the bastard that I am.

1. The Late Show with David Letterman got a bit of egg on their face when a hoaxer posing as a "friend" of Lindsay Lohan booked her to appear on the show. In a related story, Lindsay Lohan has hired the hoaxer as her new agent, because that was the first real gig she's landed in a long time.

2. Whoopi Goldberg accused the New York Times of "sloppy journalism" for leaving her out of a story about African American Oscar winners. The New York Times was reportedly shocked to find out that somebody actually still reads the New York Times.

3. Comic and screenwriter Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa has been hired to rewrite the script for the troubled musical Spider-Man: Turn Of The Dark. In keeping with the show's tradition he broke his right leg, cracked three ribs, and ruptured a testicle in a freak accident with his laptop.

4. Seth McFarlane has been named Roastmaster for the Comedy Central roast of Donald Trump. Despite what you expect, jokes about Trump's hair will not be allowed, because TV is not allowed to broadcast cruelty to animals.

Okay, I'm snarked out.

  1. Imagine a future twenty or twenty-five years from now. In that future there are only local newspapers with local news and horoscopes and the newspaper of the day the Wall St. Journal. The WSJ is the only significant paper published daily in the U.S.twenty years from now. Have you seen the weekend is looking like the Times,lots of photos and lifestye articles..lotsa shine and sparkle. That matter of fact business stuff looks pretty reigned-in. That the Times left out Whoopi from their uh-oh Oscar article and Whoopi complains about it, is typical coming from Whoopi and the Times.Who cares?
