6:00pm – So, 10 minutes ago, some fashion knob on E! said that LITERALLY NOTHING is off-limits for Nicole Kidman on the red carpet…which, if he’s using English correctly, means she could LITERALLY arrive any minute stark naked, smeared in feces, with live rats on her head. Fingers crossed!

When I was growing up, I discovered new music the old-fashioned way: radio, MTV, and mixtapes from cooler friends.

Reported by Andrew Osborne

In a final meeting of the Galactic Senate before dissolving it, Emperor Palpatine called for unity while vowing to crush the Rebellion and their “pitiful little band.” Forcefully denying reports that his Jedi Council appointee Anakin had, in fact, slaughtered all the younglings in the Jedi Temple, Palpatine nevertheless declared martial law and banned all incoming hyperspace travel until further notice. Asked for his reaction to the speech, Senator Binks (a recent Palpatine appointee to the Bureau of Speaking Correctly) responded, “Ooh! Me-sa think he-sa very statesmanlike to not Force Blast any-sa people or Tweet-sa for whole time he-sa talking.
