!! OMG, Look How She’s Grown: Rainbow Brite !!

If anyone was ready for a slutty makeover, it’s 80’s cartoon pixie Rainbow Brite. After all, “ladies” have been doing Rainbow for Halloween for years now. Why shouldn’t the doll herself follow suit?
Well good news, cuz she is! Little girls in platform heels, tube-tops and frosted lipgloss can now rejoice, because the formerly dumpy and prepubescent Ms. Brite is set to drop a few pounds, add some curves, and hike up her hemline with the release of her new line of dolls in January, according to Playthings magazine:

Playmates plans a line of fashion dolls, plush and role-play toys that will reach retailers in time for fall 2009. The toys will “honor the nostalgic look, indomitable spirit and energy that Rainbow Brite embodies with a trendy tween redesign that girls will adore,” according to United Media.

Nothing says indomitable like having all your snacks hanging out!

!! OMG, we marched! !!

What do I want? A rich husband with a 10-inch D! When do I want it? NOW!
So we went to the march and everything. It’s taken me a couple of days to write it up because I’m still really not sure how I felt about the whole thing. By now I suppose it’s irrelevant– if it wasn’t already irrelevant from the start– but in the spirit of the march, WHATEVER.
Sunday was a beautiful day in Washington– maybe too beautiful– and everyone seemed to be in a really good mood. (Maybe too good.) My comrades and I were really hung over and hungry and no one had gotten much sleep and some of us (me) had gone to bed lonelier than others. Even so, with the weather and everything, it was hard to be too grumpy. (Regular readers will know that grumpy is my default mood, so this is saying a lot.)

[[ OMG, there’s more: JUMP IN to read the rest ]]

!! OMG, it’s Nice to Popstars Day! !!

nicetopopstarshead.jpg
In the wake of yesterday’s shocking Leona Lewis bookstore attack, British website Popjustice has proclaimed today ‘Nice To Popstars’ day: “This day involves everyone being really nice to popstars, if just for one day.”
As a website that both indulges in popstar gossip and occasionally interviews popstars – some of whom are British, all of whom are wonderful – we are encouraging our readers to support the cause. If you aren’t sure what you can do, Popjustice has created a manifesto with a few suggestions. To wit:

» Tweet a popstar and tell them something you like about them. Maybe respond with a cheery ‘LOL’ to their endless pleas to purchase a new single or album.
» If a popstar releases a new song you consider to be below average quality or perhaps not up to the high standards of their previous releases, do not flood the internet with endless messages along the lines of ‘THIS ACT SHOULD BE DROPPED NOW THEY’RE SHIT THEY WERE SHIT ALL ALONG THEY’LL ALWAYS BE SHIT HOW CAN ANYONE THINK THIS IS ANYTHING OTHER THAN SHIT OH GOD MY EARS MY EARS SOMEONE SAVE ME FROM THIS WALL OF SHIT’. Instead, post some constructive criticism, or maybe say nothing at all! As the old saying goes, “if you can’t say something nice, start a gossip blog”.
» If someone sends you a YouTube clip of a popstar falling over, delete the message and don’t forward or retweet it. You’ll do so safe in the knowledge that while you have watched the clip and found it highly entertaining, you have not passed it on to other people – you are therefore morally superior.
» Seen an ex-member of a boyband, for example Blue, out and about? Brighten their day by not shouting “OI WANKER” across the street.
» Go to iTunes and purchase the worst song on a popstar’s album – it’s probably their favourite track.
» There are loads of ways you can be nice to your favourite popstar. Let your imagination run wild!

You can also follow the niceties on Twitter with the hashtag #nicetopopstars.
By the way, I’d like to take this opportunity to compliment Beyonce on her many lace-front wigs. Looks just like real hair!

!! OMG, Balloon Boy !!


BREAKING! BREAKING! So I’m on the bus right now and am clearly missing out on the story of the century, but I guess all of you are probably glued to your teevees right now fretting over Balloon Boy’s wild ride! (UPDATE: I guess he just came down? UPDATE: But maybe he’s not in the balloon???)
Anyway, I’ve just been informed that Balloon Boy and his family recently were featured on WIFE SWAP. I can’t even watch this video because I have no headphones, but OMG’s Wife Swap Correspondent Kyle reports:

“Oh my god THIS FAMILY!??!?!?!
so nuts!
the STORM CHASERSSSSSS with the ASIAN WIFE!”

Thanks to Kyle for his astute analysis, and to Brian for alerting me to Balloon Boy’s reality teevee fame. Let’s all pray for his speedy return to earth.
