Rampage Jackson is Losing to Life

July 16, 2008

I’ll tempt fate and hope that Rampage doesn’t read this and then come to my home and kill me with his chain or just looking at me. Turns out that this month is not his time to shine as he lost to Forrest Griffin for the Light Heavyweight title (great fight btw) and is now being charged with felony hit and run and felony evading arrest.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Rampage was in a car crash near Newport Beach (that’s near Laguna Beach in the O.C.) and then split the scene. Cops gave chase and eventually caught up…”

You can tell the cop knows better to just pull his gun, not because he is black but because even a tyrannosaurus is afraid of him. Oh well, hopefully this will lead to him coming back and pounding the shit out of Griffin.

Tapped Out.

Eiwajiten

30. Dried-fish woman [himono onna – 干物女]: Himono onna (”dried-fish woman”) is an expression used in the movie Hotaru No Hikari to describe the main character, a woman in her 20s who has renounced the pursuit of romance. She spends her evenings reading manga and drinking at home alone, and she spends her weekends lazing around in bed. She’s a dried-fish woman.

This is just 1 of 60 new buzzwords to have come up in 2007 in Japan. Following fads, fashion, sports, politics, and ladies, these new words are being ranked to see which are the top 10 buzzwords for the year. Some are funny like Disguised beef [gisou shokuniku] or Dark website [yami site – 闇サイト]. What is your favorite term?

The Superficial Undergoes Nice Redesign

July 24, 2007

The Superficial

One of my favorite places to catch all the smut on people who think they are better than yours truly is on The Superficial. Reading on how Britney’s ass looks like cottage cheese in a Hefty bag or that Kate Moss might have her soon to be disgusting sex tape leaked is always a pleasure over at The Superficial.

The new design looks great and even adds a hottest top 6 bar to help you really keep up on the gossip. No longer will you feel out of the loop when the Vietnamese girls going your nails are chatting up on how terrible Tara Reid’s tits look. Just kidding, they are actually just talking about how much your feet smell behind your back.

So fancy.

Bai Ling Dancing

Bai Ling is an oddity, a hot oddity. Most people know her as the girl that got into Playboy and due to it was cut from Episode 2: Attack of the Clones. Or from her performance on “But Can They Sing?” where we found out the answer. The answer is NO! But of all her roles, my favorite was in Fruit Chan’s disturbing short film, Dumplings, that was featured in the film collection 3 Extremes.

A cool random fact about Bai Ling is that she was a member of the PLA in China before becoming the international dancing machine that is shown in the video.

Watch me get down.

Teachers and Assisted Suicide

April 12, 2007

The Unethicist

The Unethicist, a columnist with Gawker.com, gives great advice to a school teacher about helping a student with a suicide problem. Surprisingly Gawker is not all about New York City sightings of celebs. I just wish they had a tag for “humor-someone-who-doesn’t-live-in-the-NYC-can-understand”. It would make it easier to find the true gems that they write such as this:

“But suicide is basically just an extreme form of being a cutter, and being a cutter is just taking enthusiasm for My Chemical Romance albums and Hello Kitty paraphernalia to its violent conclusion. It’s lame. And I do not advocate being lame.” – The Unethicist on Music on Japanese Culture

WWTDD? Probably Not The Same as Jesus

April 4, 2007

WWTTD

Sorry to say but MaoChan will be on a pseudo-vacation for till next Tuesday, I get to go play James Bond in a wedding. If time and I can find some tubes to jack into some internets, I will update but don’t count on it. Regular MaoChan updates will resume Tuesday April 10th.

In the meantime, go check out one of my favorite time wasters, WWTDD? aka What Would Tyler Durden Do?, a celebrity gossip blog.

Extremely hilarious and not holding back any punches, WWTDD? covers the nitty gritty of the rich and stupidly famous. I mean really, why are people still following Lohan around, she hasn’t done anything of value since Mean Girls and I am starting to think that was a one off thing.

Be a pretend paparazzi over at WWTDD.

Speeeed Raaacer! Movie Cast Update

April 4, 2007

Speed Racer

A new topic to MaoChan but is a staple of my web crawling is celebrity/Hollywood gossip. One trail that I have been on is the upcoming Speed Racer movie directed by the Wachowskis.

Set to star Emile Hirst, the movie is going to feature the entire Racer family with negotiations in the works that Pops and Mom Racer will be played by Susan Sarandon and John Goodman not respectively. Really if Goodman was in a dress, I think my eyes would go hide in my anus.

Here he comes, here comes Speed Racer!
