Hey baby girl…
NBC correspondent David Shuster stated that "Chelsea's sort of being pimped out in some sort of weird way,” because she’s helping her mother on the campaign trail. He has been suspended, after the usual outrage.

And weird news from Seattle.
Misha Berson, theater critic for the Seattle Times, informs us that Randy Quaid has been banned for life from Actors’ Equity Association. He was behaving erratically during a 2007 run of LONE STAR LOVE, apparently a musical adaptation of MERRY WIVES OF WINDSOR, in which he played Falstaff. The show, which ran at Seattle’s 5tth Avenue Theatre was “forced to close” because of his “oddball behavior.” A statement signed by all 26 members of the cast said he “physically and verbally abused his fellow performers.” Four Equity workers, after a physical altercation with Quaid, got restraining orders against him and his wife Evi.

Quaid has issued a statement: “I am guilty of only one thing: Giving a performance that elicited a response so deeply felt by the actors and producers with little experience of my creative process that they actually think I am Falstaff.”

So: either he’s nuts, or everybody else is.

Poor Britney.
Poor Britney.

They’re back!
From a UK Ministry of Defence Report: "The witness saw spaceships and then said that one of them abducted his dog, car and tent when he and some friends were out camping."

Another unfortunate neologism.
Referring to the real world as “meatspace.”

Scott Brown, in WIRED, on facebook, etc.
“We turned into twittering selectibitionists, eager to share choice cuts of our fascinating lives with the world and delighted to find free online apps encouraging us to do just that. (In an era of laser-guided capitalism, who'd have guessed someone would build us a cozy identity hive? Could it be they were just after our honey?) Social networking sites promised to bring not just people together but also our own fragmented selves — what we do, what we like, what we buy. Then we found out that promise was actually made to the identity harvesters — not to us.”

Don Imus is back!
Poor Britney.

Yeah, and for the record, I've never been too comfortable with the term "wetware" either.

Poor Britney.

Maybe he meant "primped". It's a kind of back-formation, I guess.
