The Years Have Not Been Kind To Coolio Contrary to your assertions, Coolio, life IS NOT a fantastic voyage of any sort. If you look left to right really fast doesn't it remind you of a vase of wilted flowers?

Dr. Conrad Murray Saves The Life of Someone Who Did Not Make Thriller I need to get a few things off of my chest. If I fainted and woke up to Michael Jackson's doctor putting an IV into my arm I would've flipped out right there on that plane. I mean they'd have to call the air marshalls, TSA, CIA, FBI, FEMA, all of them. I mean for real hell no. Let me breathe into a paper bag or wave some smelling salts under my nose instead. I might start carrying smelling salts for that reason alone, and I don't even really know what smelling salts are exactly.

“What The Eff?” Wednesday: “Philipinas Got Talent” Presents Big Mouth You know those Filipino prisoner dance videos that have been floating around the internet for the past few years? I have Filipino friend who explained them by telling me that her people love to sing and dance and have true reverence for the ability to entertain. Logically speaking then, the Filipino version of the "Got Talent," franchise should be a doozy, right? Meet BM, which stands for Big Mouth. BM actually has a big mouth and big ol' eyes and a Big Bird inspired cape to match. I won't label BM with a gender but s/he has a great voice

Ok, so here's the thing. Actually three things. 1. I like watching people fight. I won't make apologies for my fascination with fisticuffs but I'm not proud of it either. 2. I hate when people actually do fight. Seriously, what's the point? Even my desire to watch a beatdown doesn't trump the display of one of the saddest aspects of the human condition - some people think that violence is the answer. Now watch this video. 3. Bearded old man wearing a fanny pack completely whoops the younger man wearing a flannel shirt and

“What The Eff?” Wednesday: Who Is Corey Johnson aka Musicorey? People always ask me, "Thembi, how do you find this stuff?" Well, this week I'm going to walk you through the process because there is no reason why a perfectly sane woman such as myself should be asking any questions about Corey Johnson. Please bear with me as I take you through the tragically painful journey of discovering all there is to know about this person.

H-Town and Jodeci Are Back…Sort Of.

Cops: Woman fried, ate goldfish amid fight with ex

PASADENA, Texas — Authorities say a Houston-area woman who was burned up at her former common-law husband fried their pet goldfish and ate some of them. Pasadena police say it's a civil matter and no charges will be filed. The seven goldfish were purchased together by the couple during happier times. Police spokesman Vance Mitchell says the man reported on Saturday that the woman took the goldfish from his apartment. Mitchell says the two argued earlier about some jewelry the man had given her but took back. She wanted the jewelry returned. Officers who were dispatched to the woman's home arrived to find four fried goldfish on a plate. The woman said

“What The Eff?” Wednesday?: Gary Coleman’s Head to Body Ratio Gary Coleman has gradually made his way onto the short list (ha) of people whose behavior I don't understand. On the one hand, he's a deliciously quirky pop culture icon responsible for a catch phrase that, if used in the perfect situation, is still funny twenty-five years after its inception (yes, there is a time and a place for a 'whatchu talkin' bout Willis...I just haven't personally observed one recently). On the other, he's demonstrated violent and aggressive tendencies repeatedly and of course there was that whole homosexual love affair/rap album debacle. Bottom line - this man continues to bring in the paychecks, whether the joke is on us or on him. His most recent venture: Fry Cup Fortune for New York Fries.

“What The Eff?” Wednesday: One Man’s Trash Guys . . . you know. . . we're all having tough times. Pinching pennies, tightening belts, and cutting open tubes of toothpaste for that last brush-worth instead of just tossing them isn't just thrifty, its mandatory. I've been using the same stick of deodorant until the plastic scratches my pits and banging ketchup bottles against the table before I dare open a new one. And yes, I'm rocking last year's flip-flops. But come on, yo. flipflopsebayflipflopWearing someone else's flip-flops is not simply a sure road to foot fungus, but its just downright nasty. Times are not tough enough
