So for those of you that missed out on the University of Michigan's 9th annual Mock Rock charity event, I apologize. Not only did you miss out on some great musical acts, a hysterical comedic performance by the Sklar brothers, and some celebrity cameos... but you also missed out on the chance to help a great cause. The proceeds from the event went to the CS Mott's Children's hospital AND the family of Joi Smith, a former Michigan track and field star who fell victim to cancer this fall.
WOLV was at the event and caught every act on film. Because I'm so nice, but mostly because this is so damn entertaining, I'm going to share with you one of the more entertaining performances of the evening.
Here you can check out the Michigan Marching Band's rendition of a High School Music medley. It's certainly worth a look.

Buckle Up Dang It!

It's fun to go after Disney Teen Queen Miley Cyrus. Why not? She's been an almost flawless role model and is raking in the dough with her music, TV show, and movies...but we all have our flaws, and Consumer Report found hers.
Apparently in a scene in Miley's new movie, "Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus Best of Both Worlds" the teen queen and her father are filmed driving...only neither are wearing their seatbelt! News organizations have jumped all over this as an opportunity to point out how important seat belt use is. ABC News did a story that included in car cameras showing teenage drivers flying about their vehicles because they weren't buckled up.
Billy Ray released a statement claiming it was a careless oversight and that seatbelt use is VERY Important.
Yeah, now the world makes sense again! What's next Miley, are you going to get caught drinking too? Tiss Tiss... (p.s. I hope you could read my incredible sarcasm throughout this piece. YES I think seatbelt use is important. But give the poor girl a break!)

So the writer's strike is almost over...pending an approval by the WGA on Tuesday...which means your favorite TV shows are making a comeback. Many of TV hottest shows are planning on producing more episodes to air THIS season. The good news is that most new episodes won't come until April/May which means you still won't be distracted from your school work until then.
For more info on which shows are planning a comeback and how many new episodes you can expect this season check out Yahoo!'s page at http://tv.yahoo.com/slideshow/218/photos/1

Did anyone else know Paris Hilton had a brother?

So I've always known about Paris and Nicky Hilton, but until I heard the news about brother Barron, I didn't even know he existed.
Following in his sister's footsteps the 18 year old was arrested for driving while under the influence AND for carrying a fake ID. Unlike Paris', however, his jail stay was quite short-9 hours. A 20,000 bail (eh, chump change!), bot him released. His BAC was .14...so he did beat out Paris in that category (yet he too will probably claim he only had one martini).
FYI, Paris has ANOTHER younger brother, Conrad.

Teen Queen De-throwned.

Disney's cash cow/teen queen Miley Cyrus was finally thrown from her pedestal this last week as her movie slipped from the number one spot at the box office. It's 10.5 million weekend didn't quite match up to its 31.1 million dollar opening, allowing for the romantic comedy "Fools Gold" to steal the top spot.
Finally there is some order back in the world. An actual film with a plot is back at number one. And for those of you wondering Paris Hilton's new movie, "The Hottie and the Nottie" tanked worse than Lindsay Lohans "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen". It opened in only 111 theatres earning a pitiful 250,000 dollars. Personally I'm sad. Not because I think Paris Hilton has one ounce of talent, but because I really like her co-star Joel Moore (we hung out over Christmas break. I beat him at 'find the shtick').

I'd normally go Grammy here but...

So I was prepared to write a recap of the Grammys on this post. That'll have to wait. Not only don't I have the time at this very moment, but something noticeably funnier came my way. I was sent a link this morning to a site whose mission it was to rank the top pet themed movies of all time. Considering that when I went to watch the superbowl the fraternity was showing "Petbowl" on the Animal Planet in HD, I figured there are a few pet lovers out there that would appreciate this list.
To see which movies made the cut, and to vote for you own favorite pet thrillers (yeah so where's Beethoven?) head to: http://tinyurl.com/2ke5dl
I'll be honset pet movies get me every time. I cried like a baby during "My Dog Skip" and "Homeward Bound", and-hell- every other pet themed movie out there. And now that I think of it, I don't recall a recent pet-themed project. Maybe we're about due?

Ledger died of ACCIDENTAL overdose

The autopsy results are in, and a medical examiner has concluded that 28 year old actor Heath Ledger died of an ACCIDENTAL drug overdose of "painkillers, sleeping pills, anti-anxiety medication and other prescription drugs." A spokesperson said that, "The cause of death was "acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam and doxylamine.""
Ledger's family has returned to his home town of Perth, Australia to prepare for his funeral. A statement through Ledger's publicist claims that the hopes are that Heath's death will serve as a warning for others of the dangers of prescription and non-prescription drugs.

Box Office say what?

I like to check out the box office stats each weekend to see a) which celebrity filled movie is going to flop next and b) if there is actually something out there worth seeing. This weekend I was flabbergasted (although as an entertainment person I should have seen this coming) when I read this on AOL's Entertainment page:

"As of Wednesday, Fandango.com and MovieTickets.com, the top online ticket sellers, said "Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert" accounted for more than three-quarters of their ticket sales this week.

Fandango.com said "Hannah Montana" was the site's best-selling concert film ever, selling out more than 1,000 showings and accounting for 91 percent of sales as of Wednesday morning.

MovieTickets.com reports that the film ranked eighth on its all-time presale list and was tracking at nearly 90 percent of sales on Wednesday."

I guess I still had hope somewhere deep down inside that Jessicap Alba's "The Eye" would steal the top spot (ok so I think Alba sucks on screen too, but she's cute and legally old enough to drink...which also makes it less creepy when guys go all gaga over her). I still can't get over it. It's Oscar season and people are going to theaters to see Miley Cyrus. It's not even a movie! There's no plot! It's a fricken hour and fifteen minute CONCERT!
At least when Hilary Duff or Lindsay Lohan tried to sell their music through there movies there was some semblance of a plot attached (although viewers of "Raise Your Voice" might argue otherwise...).

It appears like I blog about the same celebrities over and over again. And yet they are the only ones in the news. Case in point: Britney Spears. Her dad officially has custody and now it's been said she has been diagnosed as being bi-polar. That makes perfect sense. Her hospital stay has been extended to 14 days with an obvious potential for more treatment past that point.

All about YOU.

Yes I read every comment made on this blog. I use your comments/criticisms in an attempt to provide better content. So, as per the request of an apparently loyal reader, I have dug up another hilarious YouTube video to help take the edge off during studying.
I have always been a fan of CSI: Miami. While I LOATHE David Coruso, I have to admit his quirky attitude and monotonous style are part of what makes the show so damn successful. So, when I saw this montage of David Coruso one-liners from the show, I knew I had to share. Let's put it this way, when done watching I had an extreme desire to buy a pair of black sun glasses. I've also been practicing the "hands on the hip" move. I think I have it just about down.

ANOTHER celeb in rehab story...

I feel like I should just make a template and fill in the blanks when a new celebrity hits rehab. This time "Ghost Rider" star Eva Mendes has checked herself into the Cirque Lodge in Utah. Sound familiar? It should. That's where Lindsay Lohan went. Specific details into what exactly Mendes is being treated for have yet to be released.
When Access Hollywood has to devote an entire segment to "Who's in Rehab" you know things are bleak. And to think people are bitching about pictures of Miley Cyrus in a bathing suit. Get back to me when she enters Promises and we'll have something to talk about.
And speaking of Miley today marked the first day of her "Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: The Best of Both Worlds" 3D movie. Shown only for one week in theaters, tickets have been almost as hard to come by for the film as they have for her sold out concerts. Internet ticket sites like Fandango, say that theaters have been increasing screenings as a result of the number of sold out shows.
So if you want to catch the Best of Both Worlds you better get your ticket early...and remember you only have a week.
If one of you does go I'd be curious to know what you think.

Quite possibly the funniest video I've seen in a long time...

Sarah Silverman had a surprise for her boyfriend Jimmy Kimmel as he celebrated a milestone TV show the other night.
The resulting video is one of the funniest things I've seen in quite some time. If you are easily offended I encourage you to not watch. If you aren't easily offended and want a good laugh than this video is impossible to ignore.
