Stop putting it out there, stop reading it, stop writing it, and stop eating it up with a shovel.

There’s an episode of South Park (naturally) that strikes the nail with great ferocity and accuracy and charm. Britney Spears has shot her face off, but yet she is still thrown out to the lions and the hordes. They rip her to shreds, but the triumph is brief. The cult must have more self-proclaimed virgin blood, and so they move on to Miley Cyrus.

This was five years ago and it has proven prophecy as Cyrus’ every move is now monitored, her every action debated and labeled as bold or bizarre. She’s a slut, she’s a feminist, she’s crazy, she’s smart. We can’t make up our minds, but she is, undoubtedly, #1 in our hearts and #1 in our cross-hairs. (more…)

Remember that infamous Rolling Stone cover with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson in bed together? (If not, see above.) It was at the height of their X-Files heat when FBI Special Agents Mulder and Scully were TV’s favorite “It” will-they-or-won’t-they couple. Well, much to the still existing delight of several nerds out there I’m sure, it turns out that life imitates art. The gossip site Celeb Dirty Laundry is reporting that Duchovny and Anderson are now shacked up together.

Gillian Anderson isn’t wasting any time. Just as news breaks that she’s split from her boyfriend of six years, Mark Griffiths, CDL has learned that she’s living with her X Files co-star David Duchovny in Los Angeles.

A source exclusively told CDL that David and Gillian have been in a serious relationship for some time now and she and her children are shacking up with the Californication actor.

So dust off that old X-Files fan fic because no matter how many depraved ways you put Mulder and Scully together, Duchovny is a recover sex addict so he’s probably been there/done that. All kidding aside, we fans who remember the 90s are punching the air right now. Or to put it in terms millenials will understand: they’re our K-Stew and R-Patz. The chaste romance of a generation finally realized in real life.

For years now, Robert Zemeckis has been hinting at the possibility of a sequel to his 1988 film “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”; a kids movie about a cartoon Rabbit who is accused of murder and needs the help of a human detective to prove his innocence. Talks have been going on since the first film was released, but last year, during a MTV interview Zemeckis revealed that a sequel was officially in motion. Zemeckis had been going around saying he had a good idea in mind. Then in July, he said he’d been discussing the film with Bob Hoskins (Detective in first one). Later that month he revealed that the original screen writers were working on a script. A later  quote from Bob Hoskins himself said: “Zemekis said he’s going to do it like a Christmas Carol, but I’m 67 years old! I’ll look like a cartoon at that point! If they do it, I’m in”, implying that Zemeckis will once again use performance capture. The project has been tight lipped since. MTV, however caught up with him Zemeckis again and he had this to say about the script;

If for some reason you are unable to watch the video, Zemeckis said that screen writers Jeffery Price and Peter Seaman are still writing the script but “They’re slow.” He then said he has read some of it and that “It’s great. Oh, it’s going to be great. I think it’s going to be great.”

The words were short, but sweet. It just means the Roger Rabbit train is moving forward, and if you like me that’s good news.

While we await further news on the project I do wonder how the sequel will play out and if it will live up to the original. What do you guys think?
