what a difference…


… a shave makes.

Our first Gorge-Watch nominee, Noemie Lenoir has had a serious buzz cut for a film role in Rush Hour 3.

Our advice: if you’re not likely to get an Oscar nomination for the film or a diamond the size of a football for winning the “I dare you to shave your head” challenge, put the razor down.

We repeat, put the razor down and step away from the scissors.

walcott shows the oldies how it’s done

Comments Off

The embryonic Theo Walcott done good during the England v Germany Under 21s game, scoring twice – in what many are saying were very Thierry Henry style goals. (But without the sexy accent or the good looks.)

As was the subject of much discussion this summer, bubba Walcott was brought along for the ride to the World Cup by then England coach Sven Goran Eriksson.

So what’s the deal here? If he’s old enough to play in the big man England squad, why does he also get to play in the little man England squad too?

It’s like professional athletes competing in the Olympics, or Victoria Beckham eating food. It just doesn’t seem right.

Actually, being 17 and earning the levels of wonga Walcott is earning could also fall into the “doesn’t seem right” category. Such is the wonder of the beautiful game.

So, yeah.

We have no real point here: it’s a slow gossip day, we’re feeling old and poor and we felt the need to say something about it.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving everyone. As we’ve mentioned before, we take all possible public holidays off, and this is no exception. Don’t think Canadian Thanksgiving qualifies? We’re sure he-of-the-sometime-attractive Owen Hargreaves would disagree. He’s kinda Canadian, right?

One thing, though: thanks to the wonders of Blogger, our long list of links and witty repartee freshly prepared for Thanksgiving Day was deleted without warning/thrown out into cyberspace/etc and we sure as heck aren’t writing them again when we could spend that time pouting and trying to figure out how to use WordPress.

the WTF files: stan collymore

So, he’s a nude beach loving, parked car booty call having, woman beating kind of guy (who’s lost his looks) and now he’s decided to bring back his career by openly declaring his wish to return to the Premier League.

Actually, change “wish” to “desperate wish”.

Undaunted by his age and/or mental issues, Stan is training his butt off harder than Rocky Balboa before a title fight.

His agent, Simon Kennedy was quoted as saying: “During his time at Villa, he was in the worst mental state of his career. The time Stan spent at Villa was a massive disappointment to him. He would love the chance to go back and set the record straight.“

The Friday Fit: Joey Barton


Joey Barton of Manchester City

He’s not usually one of our favs, but we’re always willing to jump on the “drop trou” bandwagon. Welcome to the club, Joey, even if you are in a whole mess of trouble over this one.

And no, we can’t be bothered to find a photo of your face to go with your ass. It’s just not that kind of website, mate.
