Fremps Alert

I dated this girl in college who used a word, "fremps", that she got from her Swedish (Swiss?) grandmother. It means to be embarrassed for someone else - as in, "I am totally frempsing for Lindsay right now."

Self-awareness is only funny in people who are otherwise NOT self-aware. This is sorta painful.

Did Leonard Cohen predict the Phil Spector killing?

Move over Billy Bob

A new World's Biggest Asshole finalist.

"Many lack the sophistication to appreciate that just because I play a baby-faced killa upon the darkened stage that it doesn't come close to who I really am. I would point very gently to the diversity and complexity of my artistic work to give you some sense of who Billy Corgan really is (that is a joking 3rd person by the way). Part-alien, part-human, part-robot, part-star-crossed lover and part-mercury filled apparently if one was to read the songs in that way."

My favorite part was when Rosario Dawson saves the day by punching the "Eagle Eye" computer monster in its giant computer eye.

Cobain's estate looted for millions

Kurt Cobain's estate looted for millions

My favorite line - "Asked how this could have happened, Holmes said, 'Courtney noticed the money was gone when there wasn't any left."

Huggin' It Out

From NY Magazine:

"A breathless eyewitness explains to the Daily Mail:

"There was a bit of a bottleneck as all of the leaders filed out so the Queen started chatting to Michelle Obama. She appeared to look up at her and make a comment about how tall she was. As she did, she put her arm around Mrs Obama and rested her gloved hand on the small of her back. Almost simultaneously, Mrs Obama put her arm around the Queen's shoulders rather more firmly. The pair then looked at their feet and appeared to be discussing their shoes. The Queen then dropped her arm and, a few seconds later, Michelle did the same. The entire exchange lasted around eight to ten seconds but was absolutely extraordinary."

It is believed to be the first time in the 57 years of her reign that Elizabeth of England has ever performed such a gesture. It is against protocol to touch the Queen unless she touches you first.

Earlier in the day, the Queen and her husband, Prince Phillip, gave the First Couple their traditional gift of a signed, silver-framed portrait of themselves. The Obamas responded by presenting the Queen with an iPod programmed with some of his speeches, a video of her last visit to the the United States, show tunes (her favorite) and also an extremely rare playbill signed by Richard Rodgers. Prince Phillip, after hearing about Obama's morning of meetings with Asian continental leaders, cracked: "How could you tell them apart?" Which, in retrospect, might be why his wife later felt it necessary to make such a colossal gesture of friendliness to the wife of America's first minority president. But still!"
