I got no time for fake ones...

Steve Buscemi is "Saint John of Las Vegas" [MOVIES]


I have been searching high and low for a trailer to this to no avail! I have stumbled across a few reviews and some movie stills however. My take is that it's something like if Tarantino (this film is directed by Hue Rhodes) did Reservoir Dogs, but the premise was more darker Ocean's Eleven meets The Hangover...I'm not sure if that makes sense, but it does make me want to watch this thing! Plus Buscemi is that dude...In theatres February 2010. Starring Steve Buscemi, Romany Malco, Sarah Silverman, Peter Dinklage, Tim Blake Nelson, John Cho, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Aviva, and directed by Hue Rhodes.

My Favourite New Comedy: "Community" [TELEVSION]

This new comedy series has provided me with a seemingly endless supply of comedic relief over the last few days. I have been been quoting, and drawing parallels in within my own life which only helps to sustain my fondness for the show. From the minds that brought us Arrested Development, come Community...try it, you'll love it...probably.

From Dan Harmon ("The Sarah Silverman Program") and Emmy Award-winning directors Joe and Anthony Russo ("Arrested Development") comes "Community," a smart comedy series about a band of misfits who attend Greendale Community College. At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, "The Soup"), a fast-talkin' lawyer whose degree has been revoked. With some help from his fellow classmates, Winger forms a study group who eventually learn more about themselves than their course work.

Also among the series stars who comprise the group are comedy legend Chevy Chase ("Chuck") as Pierce, a man whose life experience has brought him infinite wisdom; Gillian Jacobs ("The Book of Daniel") as Britta, the 28-year old drop out with something to prove; Yvette Nicole Brown ("Rules of Engagement") as Shirley, a sassy middle-aged divorcée; Danny Pudi ("Greek") as Abed, a pop culture junkie; Alison Brie ("Mad Men") as Annie, a high-strung perfectionist; Donald Glover ("30 Rock") as Troy, a former high school football star trying to find his way and Ken Jeong ("The Hangover") as Spanish professor, Señor Chang.

A go&d™ Friday Saturday Classic! [MELODY]

I apologize for the tardy classic post...but check this out, have you ever had a melody plague you because of your inability to accurately identify the song, artist, lyrics, or even all three? All you can do is hum, mumble, and confuse everyone you sought help from. This has been a small sub-plot of my daily story for about 3 weeks, after an impromptu viewing of Maid in Manhattan...yeah, I know...don't ask. Nevertheless, the mystery has been solved! Mariah Carey - Love Takes Time. Great success...time to revel.

Couldn't see that I...was blind...

Betty Draper is bad! ...and from what I've read is down to have a beer once in a while. I feel like Dexter from Eddie Murphy's "RAW"

Read the entire interview and check the photos of a leather-and-lace clad Jones here.

Gucci Man vs Eli [LOL]

This is funny because I had a conversation with some friends comparing Gucci and Eli about a year go...and it looks like someone had a very similar thought process. Except they decided to make a video for it.

Gucci > Eli...but just barely.

Private Compound Is Canada's Most Expensive Property Sale In 2009 [REAL ESTATE]


It's surprising, and not surprising at the same time that this piece of property is located in Calgary...from oil sands, to retail for a few years now it's been more like "Cashgary" over there.

Canada's most expensive residential sale so far this year occurred last month. Falkridge, a luxury retreat in the Calgary region, sold for $13.1 million after being on the market just a few weeks. It was listed for $12.9 million and sold for $13.1 million to an unnamed Calgary oil and gas entrepreneur. It was owned by U. S.-based Haworth Inc., a manufacturing company but was originally built by the Smed family of Calgary. The compound is 27,000 square feet and has a main residence, guest house, gazebo and water tower. The main residence is 15,000 square feet and has seven guest suites, an industrial chef kitchen, dining room, lounge and a media room that accommodates more than 20 people.The 12,000-square-foot guest house has six separate suites,a lounge with fireplace, and a training and conference area.
