I’ve had this Esquire story about Randy Quaid and his wife Evi saved for almost two weeks and finally got around to reading it today. Chris Jones did a great job with the piece. With lines spoken by Evi like “Everything came out of the Dairy Queen” it’s hard not to think they’ve out of their minds or doped up. But, and that’s a mighty big one there, what if it were all true? What if the deaths of David Carradine, Michael Jackson, Sean Penn, Heath Ledger and a slew of others were somehow connected? What and how would these Star Whackers gain? David Hartman Covering Casper looks so rad.
Fight For Your Right Revisited sounds like a fan film except it’s directed by a Beastie Boy and stars Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, Will Ferrell, Elijah Wood, Jack Black and John C. Reilly. How did Wood get into that group? (via /Film)

This interview with Yoko Ono on Esquire.com is pretty interesting. This is my favorite quote “We thought that we were punks.”
Reading Aaron Sorkin talk about Sarah Palin’s reality show is pretty damn interesting, especially when he compares her hunting animals to Michael Vick’s crimes which he went to jail for. The missus sent me this link over at HuffPo.This Critters poster from Mondo by Rhys Cooper is about 400 times cooler than the movie itself.

Though I don’t’t share his affinity for Brenda Starr, I had a good time reading my buddy Kiel’s remembrances of her and the funnies in general over on Cool Kids Table. I was also a huge fan of the comics, but I avoided the “real” ones which meant anything dramatic, basically or, oddly enough, drawn in a more comic book style.
Seeing Paul McCartney play “Here Today” on Jimmy Fallon, a song he wrote about John Lennon, the day after the 30th anniversary of his former song writing parner’s assassination tugged at the old heartstrings.
