Carry Moonbeams Home in a Jar!
By PopCultureWhore




I’ve had a bit of childhood television nostalgia lately, and one of my favorite trashtastic 1980’s shows was “Out of This World.” It featured Evie, a girl whose father was an alien and spoke to her only through a glowing cube she kept at her bedside. The bonus was that Evie was half alien, so she could do things like stop time by putting her two index fingers together. Awesome. I don't remember what any of the other cast members did besides Evie and her mother, though. Full episodes have not yet hit YouTube, but here are the opening clips and an odd musical performance from Evie, decked out in her bedazzled finest. I’m actually most amazed that this crap latest four seasons.

Publicity Stunt Sunday
By PopCultureWhore




Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie are apparently on speaking terms again per the rather well-timed paparazzi video of the two having discussions at the airport and gas station, respectively. At this point, I'm about as interested in their faux drama as I am about a congressional hearing on SEC proxy statements. The main reason I didn't consider killing myself after watching this video was the brief moment where Nicole almost fell while trying to climb into her massive Hummer. I also almost just spelled killing "cilling" ... so this is my brain on stupid sluts.

Elsewhere in Idiotville, Aaron Carter has called off his engagement to a Playboy playmate. "I got caught up in the moment and proposed. I then realized it was a hasty thing to do and I am not ready for marriage quite yet," Dipshit told US Weekly. Good call there, junior. You probably didn’t want Nick’s best man speech to go something like, “Enjoy her, man. I sure did!”

Pretty Pretty Pictures
By PopCultureWhore






















I don’t often base my movie selections on posters alone, but the Diet Coke I had tonight is preventing me from going to sleep, so here are some selections that could be hot. I love me some 1940’s film noir L.A. Confidential-esque movies (though I have yet to see “Black Dahlia”) so “The Good German” could fill that desire for men in hats, scotch on the rocks and lingering stares. It’s apparently about an American journalist in post-war Berlin who is looking for his old mistress, but is drawn into a murder mystery. Oooh. I also don’t generally like James Bond movies or Matt Damon, but they did up the posters real nice, so I might be persuaded.

Paper or Plastic?
By PopCultureWhore





















Jessica Simpson is on the cover of "Elle" next month in advance of the release of her latest movie, "Employee of the Month." Looks like there might have been a few bottles of cough syrup in Jessica's cart because she's looking a little dopey.

Twins for Madge?
By PopCultureWhore
















Madonna and husband Guy Ritchie are reportedly looking to adopt from an African orphanage. They had originally wanted a single child, but said they’d be open to siblings or twins so they wouldn’t have to break up a family. I think we’ve heard this one before, so who knows if it’ll actually happen. Rocco seems to be enjoying his role as youngest and most precocious, so I don’t know how well he’d react to a little competition from African orphans. How do you win an argument with a sibling who pulls out the “I survived on gruel for months” card? As Zahara and Shiloh become more verbal, Rocco and Maddox can exchange war stories.
