WELCOME TO THE 21ST CENTURY

In one of those post-modern or meta-moments that are fun to wrap your head around (at least to me), we discover from an AP news piece, found on Yahoo! News, that Yahoo! is going to undergo a makeover to cure its slump.

Whatever.

I don't care about Yahoo! or whatever it's looking to do, I just love the very fact of reading about Yahoo!'s troubles on Yahoo!, through the words of another news agency.

Or maybe it's just me and there's nothing fascinating about it at all.

Yes, it does seem ironic.

Even better is they have a slide show where you can see exciting pictures of the Yahoo building. Well, after 3 or 4 pics it morphs into a Britney and Paris cleavage fest, which for once is actually an improvement.

That's Yahoo! to you, Bub.

Word on the street is Britney's showing some different "cleavage" in some of the pics with her and Paris. I don't know myself: far be it for me to object, on principle or otherwise, to young blonde gals, but I can't stand either of them.

Yesterday NPR was touting an upcoming piece about This American Life trying to make the move from public radio to television. It's a small world.

As for Britney and Paris hanging out together, it makes me feel like the release of The Guardian, when I thought, "How nice, now by avoiding one movie I can miss the latest by both Kevin Costner AND Ashton Kutcher."

That's the kind of optimism I admire. Now if we could somehow get Mel Gibson together in a movie with Alec Baldwin, I could skip it and die a happy man.

I've heard (not seen) that the pics show Brit's c-section scar. Ugh.

Baldwin is actually quite funny on 30 Rock. Best thing on the show.
Besides Tina Fey.
I know, I know, but I kinda like the glasses. The intellectual look and all.

30 Rock.? Not familiar with that.

Baldwin's always funny, and he's a pretty decent actor (as is Mad Mel). My problem with Baldwin is . . . Baldwin. I can't stand him. Such a pompous ass. Ever see him on Dinner For Five? Such a blow-hard.

As to Tima Fey, she's ah-ight. I like the geeky girl look too, believe me.

Baldwin's character on 30 Rock (part of the new comedy block on NBC Thursday!) is a blowhard, that is what makes it so funny.

Yeah, he bothers me too, as does Mel.
Such talent, such assholes.

My wife was stunned when I mentioned I thought Fey was good looking. Not mad, just shocked.
I'll never live it down.

LOL! I can tell my wife I like an actress/model/singer if she's indisputably, blatantly beautiful (like Catherine Zeta-Jones or Audrey Tatou, the French chick from Amelie), OR if she's quirky/seemingly smart/funny (Parker Posey's the best example, but also Hope Davis or Catherine Keener when she was a bit younger).

But it's those women that are not necessarily super-gorgeous in that way other women "admire," yet are unmistakingly hot that you MUST avoid mentioning. As Simmons pointed out, Shakira's trouble. I let my wife believe I think she's ugly! Just to make sure I'm safe.

I got into some trouble about Penelope Cruz a few years back. I said she was hot, and Mrs. Mike came back -- sharply -- with, "She's funny looking."

I let her win that one.
