Oddly Enough Blog
News, but not the serious kind
Blog Guy, are you covering that big-deal Cannes Film Festival that’s going on now?
Sure, if by “covering” you mean sitting 3,000 miles away from it and looking at our photos and making stuff up, then you bet I am!
I especially like reading about all the young ingenues, desperate for their big break.
Well, you can get all your “ ingenews” right here. I know they seem glamorous, but many of those young actresses make “ingenuisances” of themselves.
Blog Guy, have you seen the Time Magazine list of the 100 Most Influential People in the World? I’m surprised you’re not on it, you know, what with your blog, your Goofy Face Museum and Doughnut Shop, your radio talk show, your tap-dance video….
Don’t EVEN get me started on that! It turns out I was number 101!
Golly. To come SO close!
Tell me about it. I got the famous Time Magazine Consolation Letter:
“Dear Bob, we regret there wasn’t room for you on our Top 100 List because we had to include such household names as Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Sheik Khalifa bin Zayed al-Nahyan and Sandra Bullock.”
Blog Guy, I have a bone to pick. You used to do a MUCH better job of covering actress Susan Sarandon’s vacations. That’s the only reason most people come to this stupid blog!
Yes, I’m so sorry, you’re right. I’ve let you down, but let me make it up to you.
A very famous person writes, “Bob, what can we celebrities do to improve our image? Please reduce your advice to 10 simple rules, because we have other stuff to do.”
Well, celebs, thanks to my background in damage control and image consulting, I can tell you it doesn’t matter a bit what you do in private, but when there is somebody around with a camera:
Blog Guy, as a Hollywood insider, who do you think will get Best Actor at the Oscars this weekend?
I don’t do predictions, but I can steer readers in a useful direction. For years, there has been a tradition that the actors with classic Hollywood good looks lose, and some goofy-looking guy wins.
Jeez, Blog Guy, I’m getting so tired of all these movie awards. Okay, the Oscars are great, but I mean, there’s the Golden Globes, the Critics’ Choice, and on and on and on. What’s the WORST awards ceremony in the movie business?
I’d have to go with the Cardboard Poster Awards, which were just held a couple of days ago.
Blog Guy, I read a Reuters story saying singer Carly Simon is giving fans a chance to have some fun with one of the great mysteries in pop music, namely, who is the narcissistic target of her classic, “You’re So Vain”?
Anyway, I recall you used to hang with Carly and her crowd at Martha’s Vineyard, and I thought you might know the big secret.
