I've had a few thoughts about things I would blog about promptly, if my computer were not moaning and whirring and sounding like it may just combust on the spot. There has been some shit going on lately, so here is my take on the last week:
1. Michael Jackson verdict - this guy is seriously, seriously damaged goods. I don't know know if he actually molested that kid, but certainly his definition of appropriate behaviour is not normal. I'm thinking that not everything he has done is above board, that the mom of this kid is an opportunist, and that moving forward, MJ should probably stay away from kids. Kudos for Commie Haberdasher for calling it though - she said America would never put Michael in jail and she was right.
2. Tom and Katie - so, uh, do you think the whole getting engaged thing coinciding with the release of the new Batman movie was a coincidence? Doesn't he look like her dad? When I hear things like the movie industry is in a total slump, down something like 12 weeks in a row from last year's ticket sales, it makes me think that not only are these 2 putting on a show to boost their own careers, the studios are also creating these couples to boost box office sales. Fucking gross. Gross!! And I love that nobody is buying it, not even for a minute. And it just makes them force it more and try harder. In case anyone was wondering about how they are both popping up all over the place on magazine covers...these covers are planned/shot months and months in advance. If you think this hasn't been in the works since before Christmas you are sadly mistaken. Even sadder, Katie wasn't even his first choice. Reports have it that Jessica Alba and Kate Bosworth were the #1 and #2 choices for Tom (offers went out to date/marry the guy) and they turned it down. Think about it - all of these ladies are young, beautiful, have big movies coming out. A match made in heaven. Wrong on so many levels...what people won't do to be famous, eh?
