Pop-Rock Candy Mountain: Because Life Doesn’t Write Itself

  • Glenn McCullough: His new ad claims that “he’s not cool,” “he’s old school” and “he’ conservative.” Ahhh…just the way we like it. He was also recently endorsed by Tupelo Mayor Ed Neely and several other present and former mayors.
  • William Gaines: The MAD Magazine creator is getting the biopic treatment from John “Thriller” Landis. Gaines also created Tales From The Crypt and other horror titles, which will be the subject of the film.
  • Molly Ringwald: The star of Sixteen Candles turned 40 yesterday. And to think, we’re still not yet married.
  • Lindsay Lohan: The troubled actress has posed nude for New York Magazine in celebration of Marilyn Monroe. A bad biopic on Lifetime would have been plenty Lindsay. For the curious.
  • The Office: It returns with all new episodes on April 10. Hey, at least it’s coming back.
  • Horton Hears A Who: The latest Dr. Seuss adaptation stars Jim Carrey, Carroll Burnett and Steve Carell. It looks to be the best Dr. Seuss since the old school Chuck Jones cartoons. (See the trailer below)
  • Big Brother 9: An autism advocacy group is demanding an apology from CBS for insensitive remarks made recently the reality show. I just want Big Brother to go away…forever.
  • Blu Ray vs HD DVD: HD DVD loses the battle…but really, who cares? I mean, really? Whatever…The real winner will always be Netflix or the $5 bargain DVD bin at Wal-Mart.
  • American Idol: The top 24 begin their journey tonight. I’m too lazy to call, so I’ll just text my vote instead.
  • My Dad Is Better Than Your Dad: Maybe, but everybody’s better than Dan Cortez.
  • It’s Election Day In Nettleton:
  • Bush 41: He endorsed John McCain on Monday. And 42 kept on yelling.
  • Paul McCartney: The divorce turns expensive for Sir Paul as Heather Mills will not accept a $50 million settlement and a judge will now determine how much of Paul’s estate she shall receive. “I don’t care too much for money, money can’t buy me love…”
  • The Raveonettes Lust Lust Lust: The duo’s new album finds them trading in the David Lynch for the Quentin Tarrantino, as the band puts the art rock behind and turns up the surf guitar riffs and 60s power-pop vocal arrangements. If you buy only one album today, buy this one.
  • The Flu:Who’s that bad mother..shut yo mouth. Yep, there’s a strain of flu that is resistant to drugs…10 cases in Chicago. And, if that’s not scary enough, one is dead in China from bird-flu. ” That’s great, it starts with an earthquake, birds and snakes, an aeroplane and Lenny Bruce is not afraid. Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn – world serves its own needs…”
  • iTunes: The place to download every performance from American Idol starting tonight. Yes, every performance.
  • Mississippi State Lottery: The gaming commission is opposing it. Tennessee and Louisiana are happy and the state’s education system continues to lose….revenue, which is a huge gamble.
  • Clinton/Obama Bickering: Today, it was about some rhetoric in an Obama speech. Tomorrow, it’ about which flaover of Wisconsin Kringle is the best (Dude, it’s totally rum raisin–everyone knows that).
  • Michael Clayton/American Ganster: Both drop on DVD today. For a complete listing of today’s releases, please go to Amazon.com.
  • Empty Bowl Luncheon: It’s coming March 5 and it’s for the March of Dimes. It’s soup, an artisan soup bowl and Kay Bain. For more information, check out WTVA online.
  • Steve Guttenberg: He’s going to be on this season’s Dancing With The Stars along side Adam Corolla and tennis star Monica Seles, among others. Next year, Oscar The Grouch, Fat Albert and The Dancing Bear from Captain Kangaroo are scheduled to compete.
  • Dick Rice: No Dick Rice sightings today.
  • Where Have I heard That?: It was a Ford Focus commercial. The song was Cold Hands, Warm Heart by Brendan Benson.
  • Horton Hears A Who: The Trailer

The Dirty Disher is one of the web’s most popular gossip bloggers. Nominated for a Blogger’s Choice Award, more and more people are getting their daily dose of Hollywood from The Dirty Disher, be it about Blohan (Lindsay Lohan), Ol’ Poontang (Britney Spears) or the rest. This week, the ever-mysterious Disher joins our Mile-High-Five-Club.

1. Art: I adore art in any form, the stranger the better. I think it’s all about the way it makes people react, so, even bad art is good. I have some papers from some University that say I know about art, but, I still don’t know what I like. That’s one of them there avant garde, artsy fartsy jokes (feel free to roll your eyes). I’d like to be Yoko Ono and break up a band, but, no one in the band will sleep with me, so I just paint and wear weird hats. It works for me.

2. I’m passionate about caffeine and nicotine: I’m pretty sure they’re in the major food groups, if they aren’t, then some city slicker that writes nutrition articles for Yahoo in a java cafe on his friggin’ Mac is just lyin’. I also have a beef jerky addiction. I’m not proud of it and I’m thinking Circe Lodge or Promises might be my next stop, but, I’m waiting for Blohan or Britney to check back in, so I can score an exclusive while I sweat out the pain of lack of hot and spicy jerky.. in my vegan clogs.

3. I’m so passionate about hating music in movies unless it’s a musical or actually about music: Otherwise it’s a gigantic humongo pain in my ass. Dude, if you are riding a horse across a mountain, let me hear horse hooves and the wind, maybe and occasional cowboy fart..not Celine Dion. I want to kill music in movies. It’s a personal quest.

4. I’m passionate about bargains, yet I love designer crap: I want to tell the world I care nothing for material possessions, yet, I have a secret closet just for hand bags. But, I love being cheap–if someone actually notices a label I’m wearing, I can’t help but grin and slyly say “I got it at a yard sale for 5 bucks!” It’s orgasmic.

5. Mostly, I love blogging: Like the song says “you’ve got to wake up in the mornin’, with a smile on your face”……but, if you can’t do that, grab some coffee, a cigarette, and trash someone you don’t know. The hilarious lawsuit threats in your mailbox will keep you busy all day.

The Dirty Disher …celebrity gossip dished daily with no sympathy.

All the chit-chat you need for the office or when talking to a carny

Pop-Rock Candy Mountain: I Love You More Than Yo Mama!

  • David Copperfield: The magical magician is coming to the Orpheum in Memphis on the 24th. Ladies in the first ten rows are encouraged to watch for the “disappearing panties routine” and are advised to stay away from the “after-show party” backstage.
  • jaws1.jpgRoy Scheider: The actor died Sunday at the age of 75. Scheider was best known for his role as Chief Martin Brody in Jaws.
  • Saturday Morning With Kay Bain:k_bain.jpg This week, we saw Paul Thorn’s new video, to which Kay responded, “That was a good video, Paul.” Also, Tony sang Angel Eyes and the band played George Strait’s Mornin’ Show staple, You Look So Good In Love. And, lots of churches are having shindigs and many people are celebrating their 80th birthdays.
  • pthorn1.jpgPaul Thorn: His new video, A Long Way From Tupelo, debuted on GAC and Kay Bain this week. Thorn, who will be playing a show at the Lyric Theater in Tupelo on Valentine’s Day and at the WorkPlay Theater in Birmingham the following night, said the song is about “fornicating in the backseat of a car.” The video was put together by Ann Palmer of Tupelo. Look for Paul Thorn to get a HIGH-FIVE later this week and catch him on Late Night With Conan O’Brien on March 19.
  • French-Pressed Coffee:fpress.jpg Buy a French Press and a coffee grinder and say hello to the best cup of coffee you’ve ever had. For real…trust me on this. Throw your Grannie’s Mr. Coffee machine out the window…
  • African American Lives (PBS): The first two episodes of the second season are amazing. Watch to see some extremely touching moments with Morgan Freeman, Chris Rock and Tom Joyner, among others.
  • NFL Pro Bowl: Who cares? Next subject…
  • Friday Night Lights: Yes, Friday was the season two finale and things are not looking good for a third season. America loves The Ghost Whisperer, yet Friday Night Lights is probably getting canceled. Well, we are a country that loves irony.
  • Gone Country (CMT): In this week’s episode, Bobby Brown dipped some SKOAL with Gretchen Wilson and it made him break out in a cold sweat. Later, Brown was sweating a hot sweat after getting way too drunk, pootin’ on Carnie Wilson, eating a monster cheesesteak sandwich and almost urinating on Twisted Sister singer Dee Snider. Love that Bobby Brown, y’all! Dang!
  • David Shuster: The MSNBC anchor has been suspended for saying the Clinton campaign “pimped out” daughter Chelsea by having her make calls to super delegates. Come on David, leave Chelsea out of this. Besides, there’s no pimp needed when she lives in a family of political whores.
  • The Heartbreak Kid: The Farrelly Brothers‘ latest movie is as raunchy and filthy and crude…and as hilarious as their earlier work such as Dumb and Dumber and There’s Something About Mary. Plus, Michelle Monaghan’s character and her on-screen family are from Oxford and she coaches at Ole Miss. As Ben Stiller’s character says to his buddy (Rob Corddry) on the phone, “I met some rednecks, the good kind of rednecks, you know, like Jimmy Carter…).” If that isn’t enough for you to rent the movie, it also stars Stiller’s real-life father, Jerry, which is a super bonus!
  • How To Look Good Naked (LIFETIME): It’s Queer Eye For The Low Self Esteem. Host Carson Kressley encourages women to let go of negative body images and to find their own beauty. Now, if they could only have Molly Sims host one for men…
  • Welcome To The Captain (CBS): Welcome to the traditional, tired sitcom and the hopefully soon-to-be canceled.
  • Jericho (CBS): It’s back tomorrow.
  • w000437.jpgSen. Roger Wicker: He and his wife toured the tornado-damaged areas in his old Congressional District on Sunday. He also pledged federal aid for the area.
  • Jim Henson Film: The Greenville native and Muppet creator is set to become the subject of a film based on his life. Man, I still get sad when I think about Jim Henson’s death.
  • The Grammy Awards (CBS): Yawwwwn. Oh, sorry, I fell asleep. Hey isn’t that Jerry Lee Lewis and Little Richard? Anyway, Kanye West and Amy Winehouse won some awards. Believe me, other than Tina Turner and Beyonce, and Daft Punk and Kanye West, no one is going to be talking about this year’s telecast at the office. What they may be talking about is the fact that Amy Winehouse had her teeth repaired (Thanks for the heads-up from our friend The Dirty Disher!) and she actually has a nice smile.
  • Clinton Campaign Shake-Up: Out is Patti Solis Doyle as campaign manager, in is longtime aide Maggie Williams. Mr. Clinton is still waiting in the wings.
  • WGA Strike: It looks like it’s almost over; here’s what writer/director/producer James Gunn said on MySpace: “…after the WGA meeting last night, the strike is basically over; we should all be back to work on Wednesday.” Let’s hope so.
  • Tupelo-Lee Humane Society Valentine’s Day Special:dixie.jpg There’s still time to buy a pet (such as Dixie) for your significant other, or to get one for your lonely self (Man, I hate Valentine’s Day). For more information, click here.
  • Daniel Lee: The local film maker’s dog needs surgery and he needs your help. Email him here for more information.
  • Pop-Rock Candy Mountain: The ol’ blog is going to get a fancy makeover in the near future, courtesy of my great friend, Amanda. Look for new features and new interviews in the days to come. This week, Paul Thorn gets a HIGH-FIVE and Daniel Lee gets ready for the Magnolia Film Festival. Stay tuned for author Frank Portman, James Gunn, Lisa Sparxxx, The Dirty Disher, Kevin Russell of KZ103 and much more. I really do you love you more than yo mama!
  • dick_rice.jpgDick Rice: There were no Dick Rice sightings this weekend. So, here’s some vintage WTVA Mornin’ Show with the late Buddy Bain and Kay.



  • THE MILE-HIGH-FIVE-CLUB

    Paul Thorn Tupelo native Paul Thorn returns to town Thursday night with a show at the Lyric Theater. His new video,A Long Way From Tupelo, is currently playing on GAC and a limited edition of his album of the same name will be available at the show. For more information, go to http://www.paulthorn.com/ 1. First, I have to say, Bluebell Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream. I try keep it down to one heaping bowl full a week since it's full of saturated fats and I'm a 43 year old trying to keep up the image of a front man. BUT, sometimes I'm weak and I backslide. 2. My Six Million Dollar Man Pinball machine. I finally got it fixed and have been playing it a lot. My 4 year old is learning how to play it so we get to play it together. 3. Saturday mornings, I get up and watch Kay Bain. I've been a loyal WTVA viewer for many years but I get a little upset because they've cut Kay down to just being on once a week. I love Kay Bain. You know, my coffee just tastes better with Kay Bain. 4. I've recently thrown out my old socks. I went to Wal-mart and bought a 12-pack of brand new white socks. I got them all for about eight bucks so I've been really happy about that. 5. My 14 year old daughter, Kit has become a facination. I've always been all about my daughter but now she's coming out with this Aretha Franklin style, powerful voice and I've just been amazed. I love listening to her sing.
