Live in NY or LA? Go see The Hurt Locker. Because if McBay is the diesease, Kathryn Bigelow is the cure. http://is.gd/1exns
I Hurt Myself Each Day/To See If I Still Feel: The trailer for Kathryn Bigelow’s newest movie, “The Hurt Locker,” which opened today in New York and Los Angeles. I saw this movie on March 5th at Lincoln Center, and I can assure you that the 98 percent fresh rating on the Tomatometer is no lie—it’s not perfect, but it is excellent. So those of you who live in New York...
Wait, what? Who the eff is Patrick Beverly?
Chase Budinger in complete freefall. I’d like the Lakers to take him, but I expect them to take Nick Calathes and resign Ariza and Odom.
The Serbian Gangster, Darko Milicic, may be headed to NYC in a trade. I wonder if he’ll have a sitdown with Frank Lucas, American Gangster?
This just in: Minnesota Timberwolves to draft Magic Johnson, Isiah Thomas or John Stockton with the 28th pick.
The Hawks are a team of forwards. With the selection of Ty Lawson, the Wolves are now a team of point guards. WTF?
Come on, Knick fans. You know that the curse hasn’t lifted yet. No Curry for you!
Brandon Jennings is free-falling.
Brandon Jennings finally shows up at the draft—and doesn’t even look at David Stern! Comedy.
Brandon Jennings drafted at #10. In your face, David Stern!
We are all Bubbles now.
This may be the least-watched NBA draft in history. Which means fewer witnesses to Blake Griffin’s man-tears as he’s exiled to the Clippers.
Ricky Rubio is shook right now. Oklahoma just passed on him, leaving Sacramento and TWO Minnesota picks next.
CNN just went MTV…they’re just straight up playing the entire video for “Beat It.”
Newscast airs ‘Lost’ scene as Flight 447’s last... →
brettjohn: In their rush to air exclusive photos of Flight 447’s destruction, no one in this newsroom stopped to ask the logical questions, such as: 1) How did the camera survive? and 2) Why are the photos in wide-screen format? The answers, of course, are: 1) Because the footage is from Lost. And, 2) because the footage is from Lost
