Break a Leg Vince... No Really.....

ABC announced the cast of its new series "Skating with The Stars" It (predictably) will feature six celebrities learning how to figure skate with professionals. Think "Dancing With The Stars" only slightly more dangerous. One of those celebs is none other than Motley Crue front man / tequilia salesman / and all-around bad driver VINCE NEIL..... yeah.
Really?! REALLY Vince?! Who's this guy's publicist? Who comes to him and in all honestly says, "This skating thing is gonna' be great for your career Vince!"
Nothing builds rock-cred or erases all your bad personal and professional decisions like reality-based, celebrity competition. Why not.... Let's just put Mel Gibson on "Iron Chef" or Charlie Sheen on "The Real housewives of (insert city)" or Lindsay Lohan on "Jersey Shore"... ok that makes sense ... but there is a time and place to go away for awhile and this would be it Vince.

DON'T VOTE - George Carlin

Only THE BEST comics can take a taboo subject or something that goes against your very grain and actually explain it in a way that it makes sense - even though you disagree. George Carlin is/was/and always will be one of those comics to me.

Pay Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain

Swedish national TV station SVT has posted a short video clip of GUNS N' ROSES singer Axl Rose's dressing room and backstage area recorded on June 12, 2010 when the band performed at the Sweden Rock Festival in Sölvesborg in southern Sweden. Watch the clip below.

Want to know what's on GUNS N' ROSES' tour rider? The contract for the band's September 23 concert in Belgrade, Serbia requested that Rose's dressing room be all black and decorated with fresh roses, with champagne, vodka, tequila, red wine and beer available in the room. The room was also to include a bed, a sofa, a coffee table, six lamps and a rug.

Rose also wanted fresh roses, 18 each of red and white, in the band's dressing room as well, along with "black napkins, a blender, a juice maker, a tea kettle, paper tissues, 18 glasses for wine and champagne, 15 glasses for stiff drinks, 40 paper glasses, six cutlery sets, two bottle openers and corkscrews, as well as one large and two smaller bread knives." There were also precise instructions for what food and beverages should have been made available.

It's OK to Look at This Picture of Erin Andrews

Sideline hottie Erin Andrews just got that much hotter to Packer fans over the Halloween weekend when she donned a Clay Matthews Jersey/Helmet combo during College Gameday's trip to Matthews' alma matter USC - sure she was playing to the home crowd but I let her sack me anytime she wanted. JJ
