Celebrity self help

Is this even a real book? I can assure you that not only is it 100% real but I have read every single page. 

This is one of my most prized thrift shop book finds. Check the cover, I mean it's hot pink, she's shaking her finger menacingly, she has a chain holding her glasses to her neck, a cameo brooch, the worlds fluffiest hair and the title is clumsy. It's perfect. Horribly perfect.

The cover design aside... This is essentially a self help, a sort of "how to live your life" book with completely irrelevant information on how to handle fame if it happens to find you at the ripe age of 60+... Because we've all been there, am I right?

The pearls of wisdom flow in this book like the waterfall in Peter Andre's Mysterious Girl video clip*. Here's a good one:

"Do men get sick differently from women? Of course. Women get sick. Men lose their minds"

Oh Estelle, you modern woman. What else can you tell us about men and women?

"Men are stronger, they do war things better and fix pipes better"

War things. Amen.

*I hope you appreciated that little euphemism as much as I did. I laughed to myself at my own comic genius. Oh you're so smart and charming.

It's a Boycott

Nothing better than a little scandal in the mad world of (m)admen. B&T reports further advertising boycotts on Kyle Sandilands. Brands that have never wavered over the moral boundary line are taking a stand. The roster includes Coles, Bunnings, Vodafone and McDonalds to name a few.

Giddy up

Take a look at this krazy kat. I love ye olde magazines for the old advertisements. Geez louise, the plethora of coupons included in these dinosaur mags - it's little wonder baby boomers have George Costanza sized wallets full of them. Proof that advertising can persuade the culture a whole generation.

Project: Cosby sweaters

Children of the 80's all this winter madness is surely bringing on a bout of nostalgia? Warm your weary heart with some Cosby Show inspired art! This blurrrrger has started a project - draw all Cosby Show sweaters (Osee above). Ch-ch-check the site:

My oh my is it grand!

I, on the other hand am a kidling of the 90's* so I'm going to catch up on some action in the Walsh house on Beverly Hills 90210.

Ta ta!

*I can still appreciate a good Cosby sweater though

I've been saving this up for a rainy day, and while it isn't raining it is a boooooooring Monday.

So, as for this subject image... the biggest celebrity gossip news this month, Arnie and his scandalous cheating ways (I mean, the house keeper? so delightfully cliche!). Though, that isn't actually what I've brought you here to discuss, the reason for our chat - the Herald Sun's unimaginative headline of "The Cheatinator". My overseas spy's tell me that the herald Sun equivalent in London titled their story "The Fornicator", HS why didn't you think of this one? "Fornicator" is actually a word, surely that would be preferable to "The Cheatenator". Honestly... in an age where MS Office has built-in thesaurous what kind of excuse can there be?!
