Homicidal turkey says: You just got stuffed. Is it true? Yes, it is. Are you going to do it again tonight? Leftovers! Anyway...
Kanye West shocked his haters and Taylor Swift when his album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy received the oh-so rare, coveted "10" rating on uber-critical music site Pitchfork. Personally, I'm officially agreeing with the rating. I mean, the thing about this album is that literally ever track (excluding the intros and segues) is single-worthy. There isn't a track I feel compelled to skip over, and that's quite a feat when you consider that some of those tracks are a good 9-minutes long and I've now listened to that album 6 or 7 times.
Oprah's final "Favorite Things" episode happened this week. It was a two-parter. People went crazy, there were medics present. That is not a joke. If you didn't already hear, the talk show host gave away some typically insane gifts: 3D TVs, seven-day Caribbean cruises, five years of Netflix, a diamond watch, Volkswagen Beetles, etc. Check out the Huffington Post's crowd reaction video:
Pope Benedict has declared that condoms are alright for folks to use in an effort to prevent the transmission of HIV. While still no great cheerleader for artificial contraception, the super Catholic amongst us can now rest easily knowing that measures such as condoms are indeed a lesser evil. That "taking into consideration the risk of the life of another with whom you have a relationship" is important. Alright, Pope, now, moving on to the next three dozen issues...

Some idiot allowed a direct-to-video, Tina Fey-less Mean Girls 2 to exist, and tricked Tim Meadows to return as principal. The trailer has arrived, and you have no idea how catty I was when I watched it. I was like, these are the new Plastics? 1. There's nothing remotely "in style" about their wardrobe choices. Honestly, the budget on this must have been shit because they apparently picked their looks from a $2 rack at Charlotte Russe circa 2002. Those tepid florals! Those heinous pastels! Those truly unfortunate gym uniforms! What are they wearing!? Note to stylists: unless your location was changed to rural Wisconsin, Mean Girls took place in Evanston, IL. Evanston is a city that's located just outside a much bigger city (Chicago). In Evanston, fashion has continued to progress. More specifically, on the North Shore of Chicago: this would not fly. No one could rule the school in that headband. 2. This just looks like garbage. I mean, really? Ew. Wrong. So. Wrong. Boo, you whore.
