paul rudd

"With the fall television season officially under way, chances are your DVR is already overbooked. Still, we urge you to find room for Party Down. The Starz series—the terrific first season will be re-airing starting Monday, Sept. 28 —comes from executive producers Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars) and actor Paul Rudd, and totally justifies spending extra on your cable.

Following the lives of has-been and never-were Hollywood types making ends meet on the event-catering circuit (think lavish sweet 16 and La-La Land parties), Party Down is blessed with a melancholy sense of humor reminiscent of the original British The Office—except thankfully without the now stale faux-documentary conceit. And unlike certain TV shows set in Los Angeles (cough, Entourage), the series paints the entertainment industry as one where people have to actually work for a living. Poor Turtle wouldn’t know what to do with himself."

bobby long

apparently today is bobby long's bday! he should be 23 today, but it's hard to know because there's very little actual information out there about him. no wikipedia, no imdb.

i do know that he is 6'2 and his favorite football team is manchester united. other than that, i'm sure i can search through fan sites but here's what his myspace says:

Bobby Moved to London from the west country three years ago to do music and write and play as much as possible. He is currently working on an Ep... His music is like drops of rain on a bull fighters back like punches breaking through a Windy Gail. This July bobby will be embarking on "The Dangerous Summer Tour" playing 80 dates around America and then onto Europe for a small city tour. In October he will again be making his way to America before Australia in january. Just like riding the old railroads.

there are also plenty of videos:

and some more pictures:

check out his album, dirty pond songs

it's "like chocolate"

eric bana

there's not many men that can make a whole row of girls in the movie theater go "mmmhhhh" in consecution as he checks himself in a mirror on screen...but this one can...

he is none other than, 2-time australian film institute best actor winner, eric bana. born august 9, 1968 to a croatian father and german mother, he is 6 feet 3 inches of pure hunk.


- began his career as a stand-up comic
- had his own sketch comedy series, the eric bana show
- works on & races both bikes & cars
- avid supporter of australian football

in other words, he's funny and true MAN...perfect

you may recognize him from Chopper (Chopper), Black Hawk Down (Hoot), Hulk (Bruce), Troy (Hector), Munich (Avner). more recently Star Trek (Nero), Time Travelers Wife (Henry), and back to his comedy roots, Funny People (Clarke).


from wikipedia:
Bana is an ambassador for Father Chris Reilly's charity for homeless young people, Youth off the Streets. Bana is also active in campaigns with the Australian Childhood Foundation and the Bone Marrow Donor Institute. Since 1995, he has participated in the Motorcycle Riders Association Toy Run in Melbourne, which raises money and toys for needy children at Christmas. He has also worked with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, donating money to animal shelters in Berlin while filming Troy in 2004.

butch walker

I'm wired... I'm tired....and...


i just saw “It Might Get Loud” at the Landmark cinema on Pico.. it was so good and made me love and realize why i got into music in the first place. i used to watch footage of jimmy page and Zep when i was young, whenever they would come on a public access show on TV called TV 69 (this was pre-internet/cellphone/9-11/perez hilton), and lose my mind at how mysterious and larger than life it was. hard to believe that no magazine or critic would touch them then.. pity what the press never realized and how scared they were of seeming too old to like anything embraced by the young… i just ran out of room and enlarged my text window.. this is gonna be a humdinger…

pardon my italian, but jack white is a bad ass motherfucker. i have always known this, but it solidified my man-crush when i could see his love for the ACT. he is a poser, not a poseur. he knows when the camera is on, and knows what he is gonna say, do, and mug. he will never admit it, but i know. that’s not to say that he isn’t primal. he is the nu-purveyor of impulse. i love him. he will step up and play anything and it will sound great. sloppy but confident. i wish that More artists would possess this. it would make their shows less….hmmm…. boring? i have never been starstruck by many artists. i was playing lollapalooza a couple of years ago (Wolfmother! remember them?) and the Raconteurs were playing. i am friends with a super talented gent by the name of Brendan Benson who is one of the singers and gtr players in the band. he invited me back after they melted my head off from playing a show that looked and felt like it was done in 1974. i sat next to all the guys as they ate beans and drank various assortments. i got introduced to Jack (to my right), and i said “hi. I’m Butch”… a minute went by and people were conversing. he looked back over and said “wait…Butch Walker??”… i nervously said “Yes”.. another 15 seconds went by and then he sheepishly said “oh”…. i have never been so uncomfortable in my life. i still to this day don’t know if it was a good “oh” or a bad “oh”. so weird for me to care about someone i just met, better yet, have been a few years his superior in life and music by a long shot or two. i mean. i wore red and black on Conan before he even wore a white stripe. i felt like a cougar or some shit….

all i know is, i am so full of life, full of recharged goodness and ready to feel music again. i love the new record i have recorded with my band. and i can’t wait to go play these songs, and even songs i wrote years ago. i love this about my job. every once in awhile something comes along to make you feel small, curious, and eager to be the first in line at the record shop (RIP). i think it was my great uncle that said,

“life is full of zits… pop them…”


that was amazing...he also recently tweeted that he was thinking about taking up a residency somewhere in LA...time to move to LA ladies! in case you haven't seen's the trailer for the movie:
