Hollywood is not giving much hope to the American public. I just heard about these break-ups:

Denise Richards & Charlie Sheen
Katie Holmes & Chris Klein
Orlando Bloom & Kate Bosworth

woo hoo *fans self*



heh. tarzan images just popped into my head. flying through the jungle on vines, leaping off waterfalls, taming wild beasts, and woops his shirt ripped off. that's just too bad.

gotta let it burnCollapse )

also, this is just funny.


Here's the latest rumor on Paris Hilton: We hear she just took her new boyfriend to Aruba. Her boyfriend is also named Paris. Nick Carter, the guy she used to date says, "How convenient. She loves to call out her own name during sex. This way she won't offend anyone." That's not quite true, Paris has vacationers in an uproar. They say the manager of the hotel had to come to their suite and ask them to keep the noise down because of their "workout".

My brother came home from school today, and told me he had heard that Jon Heder, the actor who played Napolean Dynamite had died. I looked it up, and he is very much alive. He is coming out with 2 new movies soon which I am really looking forward to.

Hey everyone, I just joined, and I would like to say I love PC. I know I will contribute a lot to this community, so I would like to start with something that no one has really talked about, the mall, and just the mall in its entire, but a few certain stores. The first one is Hot Topic. I have to say I hate Hot Topic. They say they are anti-establishment, but they buy band t shirts from bands, and sell them in their store for more money. The second thing is that they say that appeal to the individual, but you cant be an individual and different if you shop at a store that is devoted to people being different, if you get what I am saying. It just really turns me off. Abercrombie and Fitch is kind of the same way, except the people there KNOW they are trying to be the same, and if you ask me I would rather be on their side.
OK, I hope this classify as pop culture lol, forgive me if it doesn't!

I was watching the news today, and they were talking about how Kid Rock got arrested this week. For those of you who haven't heard, he is being charged with assalt for punching a d.j. at a stripclub. They showed a clip of him at the jail and he was as happy as good be, and was making faces at the camera. Hello, you are worth millions, and yet you get into stupid situations like this. Comments?

one of my single friends is throwing an "anti-valentine's" party this year, which got me to thinking. what's everyone's thoughts on valentines day? a sweet day to show your love or a holiday made up by flower and candy companies? a good day or a lame day?

this year will be my first time celebrating valentine's with a boyfriend, so i'm excited. i know i have a few friends who hate it, but it never bothered me when i was single. of course i didn't celebrate, but i was pretty apathetic about it all. let people have fun, i'm not going to be bothered with being annoyed by it.

along the same lines, pda (public displays of affection) good or bad?

last night i heard the first single off michael bublé's new cd. the song is called "home", it's one he wrote about trying to get back home to see his girlfriend, who he missed because he was touring endlessly. it's gorgeous, and just made me swoon.

i was wondering, what songs have done that for you? just made you melt inside and sigh because they're so beautiful? or just really touched you in some way?

I heard that Johnny Carson died. It is so sad when a celebrity around for as long as him passes away. He was one of the great American entertainers, and he will be greatly missed.

I watched the "Biggest Loser" reunion last night, and those people look awesome. I think it gives hope to people to see people lose weight the old fashioned way, with diet and exercise. Good for them.

so. interesting news piece here.

do you think it was fair to force them to take out the stickers?

personally, i think it wasn't. the stickers didn't say anything about creationism or any other theory. all they said was that the theory of evolution is just that. a theory. they can't prove it, it isn't fact. so they're getting the students to look at it with an open mind, rather than just accepting it as fact and teaching it as such. that's always how i was taught. i would have been happy if just one teacher stopped to mention it's just a theory, not fact, so to take it with a grain of salt.

after all, it was fact for a while there that the world was flat. and it was accepted for years until one guy decided to take a boat over the edge of the world and oops. found out it was round.

thoughts?

Has anybody seen the show "Project Runway"? It's a show where all these young designers try to design new clothes every week to fit the challenge they are given. I love reality shows, but this one is one of the best new ones.

Basically, all I watch is Vh1 and E! to get all the new(and old) celebrity scoop. I also love movies, music, and books.

so, in an effort to give my mind a rest from studying, i decided to check in on you all. how've you been?

now that it's the fun fun holiday season, what's everyone's family traditions? something you look forward to every year? if you know, what originated them? did you start something new for your family?

edit: because it was on, and for lack of anything else to watch, i just saw the premier of "lost". does anyone else watch that show? someone want to clue me in to what's been going on? this is the only episode i've seen, i wouldn't mind being caught up whenever the next new episode is on (when is that anyway?)

any survivor watchers who want to discuss the results of this season's show/excited for next season?

[ mood | aggravated ]

so i read in the paper this morning a comment posted by britney spears on her own website. it seems she's very eager to become a mom (on the first note, her new husband has two daughters. how about you get that part of the family settled before you start popping out children?) but what really made me angry was what she said next. first, she said that women should all have children while they're young. then she said that mothers should stay at home and never work.

first off, she's got a bunch of young fans, all already dressing like sluts (aka, her) and then she's telling them to have kids young. and that they don't need to work. does anyone else see the image of kids dropping out of school to have kids? who needs school if you're going to find a man to take care of you?

it drives me nuts. look at how far the women's movement has come. it's not men who are a threat to women's rights. it's people like britney propegating the image and norms of the 1950s stay at home mom.

i'd just like to make a note that i'm not looking down on women who stay at home with their kids. studies show that raising three children is the equivalent work of two full time jobs. i'm just saying everyone should have the choice and someone who's never had to face the problem or deal with it shouldn't be putting forth such strong opinions.

Well. John Morgan (Mike from Canmore) has passed away.

I thought I'd note it because Royal Canadian Air Farce was one of the things that I really enjoyed on TV growing up - Friday nights, the Chicken Cannon, Don Ferguson as Preston Manning...the Tim Horton's skit ("You got that right" "You betcha" "Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah")

I find this very sad. :(

tinydoping [12 Nov 2004|10:25am]

[ mood | amused ]

i recently read an article on a practice called "tinydoping" and i wanted to know everyone's opinion on it.

basically, it involves parents smoking pot in front of their kids, and even offering some to them. this includes people who've smoked pot in front of newborn infants (the smoke in the air makes children sleepy and calmer) and there's even a case of a six month old who already knows how to take puffs on joints. usually it takes until kids are seven or eight to master the art of inhaling.

one quote from the article i found funny was a father talking about snorting coke in front of his kids, and how is he supposed to teach them that heroine is wrong but coke is ok?

...i wasn't aware coke was ok for anyone, let alone young children.

what do you think? is it ok to let kids (the article talks about children from newborns to eight year olds) observe/partake in getting high? if they aren't allowed in the room while the parents are doing it, should they know their parents smoke pot, drink, or do other drugs? or should it be an entirely behind-closed-doors practice?

has anyone heard of an exotic pet called a sugar glider? they seem to be a growing trend (pictures: one, two, three and baby)

they're adorable, but expensive if bought from breeders (about 250 for a female and 200 for a male) not to mention the cage to house them, which needs to be specific because of bar size (not too wide or they'll crawl through) and type (horizontal so they can climb) but oh so cute.

i'm thinking of getting myself a pair (they don't do well on their own, need a companion) does anyone have some or know of someone who does? i'd like some personal experiances, other than those posted as sites dedicated to these little guys, before i decide.

how was everyone's halloween? what'd you all do to celebrate? i went out twice this weekend (friday night and saturday night) and went to see "saw" tonight (it's disturbing, but good)

speaking of halloween, has anyone else heard about the school somewhere in the states that banned it? no costumes, no candy, no pumpkins. their reason? "it's offensive to real witches" the hooked noses and ugly old women that are usually portrayed as witches. i can't say i can understand that reasoning. not letting little kids have some candy because it's offensive to real witches?

Hello! New to the community and because someone asked me oh so very nicely to join the community. so here I am. So... Pop culture, eh? Well, I find it interesting, and fun to discuss and get into fabulous arguments over. How the popular world seems to portray itself, start new trends, etc, and how much it does affect the rest of society despite our efforts to ignore it. So, my question for the other people who have joined is this: How has pop culture influenced you and your decisions in life?

So yes, that is my nice little statement. Points, suggestions, comments?
