Dexter to Kill Again and Again


Due to it's enormous success the past two years, Showtime has decided to keep Dexter on it's roster for 2 more seasons, 12 episodes each.

"Dexter's enormous success is a tribute to the great achievements of its cast, the producing team, the author of the original book [Jeff Lindsay], and the gifted Michael C. Hall," says Showtime president of entertainment Robert Greenblatt. "I thought at best we would attract adevoted cult audience but soon realized that, ironically, this show is so thematically rich and layered with humanity that audiences of all kinds have flocked to it."

Actor portraying Dexter, Michael C. Hall, has put on such a phenomenal act that is has been prasied as a two-time Emmy and Golden Globe nominee. While the series itself was nominated this year for five Emmys, including Outstanding Drama Series. I completely agree, it's amazing and we're hooked.

Dennis Leary on Autism


In his new book, "Why We Suck: A Feel-Good Guide to Staying Fat, Loud, Lazy and Stupid," Dennis Leary strongly believes that bad child-rearing is mistaken for a brain disorder. He calls “Autism Shamautism” his favorite chapter in the book, and strongly believes himself to be right.

"There is a huge boom in autism right now because inattentive mothers and competitive dads want an explanation for why their dumb-ass kids can't compete academically, so they throw money into the happy laps of shrinks . . . to get back diagnoses that help explain away the deficiencies of their junior morons. I don't give a [bleep] what these crackerjack whack jobs tell you - yer kid is NOT autistic. He's just stupid. Or lazy. Or both."

The Autism Society of America responded:

"For Mr. Leary to suggest that families or doctors conspire to falsely diagnose autism is ridiculous . . . [His] remarks reflect the same misconceptions of autism being caused by bad or unemotional parenting that were held over 50 years ago."

NEWS.i.e. Madonna & Guy Ritchie Confirm Divorce


This was absolutely predictable, as they have had no signs of affection for each other, at least in the past few years. However, how can someone so masculine, as Madonna become lately, have affection of any kind towards anyone. Have you seen her arms? I imagine it won't be long, until Guy Ritchie reveals a feminine and less head strong woman at his side, that's how he strikes me. And Madonna, well she's been out dining with A-Rod, but we all know that's not permanent either. She's so Type A, it's not even funny.

Foot-Loose Couture

A set of shoes during London's Fashion Week 2009, struck my curiosity. Aminaka Wilmont's show revealed some very interesting barefoot shoes with a strapped heel, designed by Eelko Moorer. Turns out not only fashion designers create two sets of fashion lines per season, ready-to-wear and couture, shoe designers also delve into that uber-creative realm.

Stuntman Stabbed on Dexter Set



While filming Dexter, which is currently playing on Showtime, things got a bit more real than was expected. Dexter's new star, Jimmy Smits, while in character was supposed to stab a stuntman (Jeff Chase) in place of Dexter, with a plastic knife for killing his younger brother. Purely accidentally and in the heat of the moment, Smits grabbed a knife that was next to the plastic one, and plunged it into stuntman's chest. The problem was it just happened to be the real thing. Chase describes living through the moment:

"For the scene, I was bound in Saran Wrap, duct tape over my mouth. I couldn't say a thing as I saw Jimmy grab at the knife. He picked up the real one by pure mistake. It was a mean looking knife.

"I heard fellow actor Michael C. Hall yelling at Jimmy to stop - but it was too late. I felt the thud in my chest. I didn't have on a metal breast plate like a lot of actors do in a scene like that.

"Instead I had a piece of acrylic clear plastic about the size of a Post-it note over my heart. It was a quarter of an inch thick and not attacked. In eight out of 10 takes with the prop knife, Jimmy had missed the plastic. But by a miracle, an act of God, the knife landed at the very edge of the plastic.

"I really thought I'd been stabbed in the heart, but I didn't have a scratch. Jimmy was devastated and couldn't stop apologising. I told him, I felt more sorry for him than me."
Flashbacks of The Crow's Jason Lee's death come to mind. Why was there a real knife on the set to begin with!?!?!?!

Palin's a Heartbeat Away from Running the Country

CNN's Jack Cafferty voices our thoughts and concern on Sarah Palin's proximity, to not only Alaska "her point of foreign policy," but to acquiring the highest position in the US government.

Life Imitates Art or Art Imitates Life

This clip really sums it all up. Tina Fey literally quoting Sarah Palin's interview with Katie Couric.
