    theaptSHOWS

    dylan’s new one is streaming exculsive-like at npr. i haven’t heard it yet, but i’m pretty excited. for the past few years, i’ve have kind of an odd couple relationship with the bob. live, he’s barely tolerable. i’ve seen him a few times. his band is the finest group of musical mercenaries in the biz, a machine live. perfection. but dylan’s voice, at least, live, left him in the late 70’s and has yet to return. thankfully, the same can’t be said for his studio throat. with the wonder boys stuff dylan found a new voice, a low growl thing, and it worked. it’s working, but he can’t translate it live. so, love him to death digitally, no thanks on the free front row tickets.

    gospelr, the “christian twitter” has launched and here a few choice selections:

    – praise be, y’all!
    – i can’t wait to see this movie and am so glad kirk cameron is back too! the trailer looks like it will really hit home with people.
    – it appears that the trolls have found gospelr… may the lord have his highest will be done in their hearts and their lives… i was one once…
    – now the only question is if Jesus is a pc or mac type of savior?

    go ahead, see for yourself. hours of fun!

    meryl streep, amy adams, phillip seymour hoffman, and it looks like it was shot by david fincher (new fincher, clean fincher, zodiac fincher). sold. this is the type of movie where it almost doesn’t matter what the subject of the story is; these three actors in a dialogue heavy film is a all you could ask for. please, don’t make me eat those words, miramax.

    so i was looking for pictures of the venus de milo, google image search like, and when i found one that looked the best i clicked on it. then i grabbed the image and threw it in a folder on my desktop. but then i noticed something. i noticed the website that the picture of the venus de milo was being used on. then i went to that website. then one hilarious hour of my life went down the shitter.

    HAD THE WRONG LINK IN THERE HA HA HA

    this sentence

    Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt “have proven once again that they are the leaders in original baby-naming, even by Hollywood standards,” baby name expert Pamela Redmond Satran, coauthor of Cool Names and The Baby Name Bible, tells Usmagazine.com.

    deserves a pulitzer prize wrapped in a nobel peace prize covered in oscar sauce.

    finally!!! new letterman starts tonight. ( i don’t know what i’m going to do with myself when this guy steps down. ) of course, they could have scheduled a better guest list (pierce brosnan, bud selig, jason mraz) to come back with, but whatever. also, i’m not sure if bud selig has ever been on a talk show before, so that might be interesting. but jason mraz? is he still out there? bummer.
