!! OMG, To Whom it Concerns: Sara Gilbert gets a daytime talk show !!


Move over Rolanda, Carnie Wilson, Faith Daniels and Gabrielle Cartreris: there’s a new hostess on the block. Oh wait… they already moved over? Oops! Well continuing: everyone’s favorite Conner sibling, Darlene, (aka actress Sara Gilbert) is getting her own talk show.
Ms. Gilbert, who has blossomed since we last saw her from from a sourfaced goth teen caterpillar into a lesbian mommy butterfly, was given the show over other competing actresses due to the recently implemented law that all talk show hostesses must be Daughters of Sappho.
The show will focus on parenting (zzzzzs!) and will feature panelists such as CBS HBIC Julie Chen, forgotten sitcom actress Holly “Dont Call Me Robin Givens” Robinson Peete, Scientologist loon Leah Remini and the ubiquitous Sharon Osborne.
The show replaces the departing As the World Turns, which, boo-hoo except I only watch Days and sometimes AMC so who cares.

!! OMG, It’s Justified and Ancient: Scientists uncover very old dildo !!

olddildo.jpg
I just hope they boiled it or something: archaeologists in Sweden (coincidentally the home of the Swedish massage, Swedish Fish and the Swedish Chef) have discovered a suspiciously boner-like object, carved out of an antler, which they suspect to be the world’s mustiest known dildo. But don’t get too excited, boys– all reports claim that the faux-phallus measures in at a wimpy four inches.*
Naturally the archaeologists are loathe to jump to conclusions, pointing out that no one can know for sure if this item was ever used in the pursuit of sweaty caveman pleasure. One G┼íran Gruber (of the National Heritage Board in Sweden!) sensibly points out that the non-business end could also have been used to “chip flakes of flint.”
Of course, it seems beside the point what use was actually intended for the thing. Everyone who’s ever tended a vegetable garden knows that if there’s an even penis-like object to be found, there’s also surely someone willing to stick it all up in himself. Mark my words: whether or not this ancient artifact was purchased at Ye Olde Sexxxe Shoppe, it has surely seen the inside of a man’s butt!

!! OMG, she’s a samurai: Nicki Minaj in the “Your Love” vid !!


Rising rap star Nicki Minaj winds the clock back to feudal Japan in the video for her hit Annie Lennox-sampling single “Your Love”. In the promo the Queens native plays a stylish samurai-in-training who falls for her sensei and then tussles with another female student amidst a highly forgiving landscape of flow-y fabrics and wind machines.

!! OMG, She’s a Musician: Margaret Cho !!

Wait, what? Margaret Cho has (temporarily?) turned in her comedian hat (it never seemed to fit her that well in the first place!) and exchanged it for the golden microphone of a chanteuse! Her new album, Cho Dependent, is out August 24th and features lez-icon collaborators such as Tegan and Sarah and Ani DiFranco. Yes, that Ani DiFranco is apparently still alive.
Cho tells New York Magazine a bit about her new career and shares some of her favorite songs of all time in this (sort of) revealing interview. Surprise, she likes Prince.
No word, however, on whether the new album includes any songs in her trademark fake-Korean mom accent, but fingers crossed! You can stream her new song, Eat Shit and Die, at her website.
