Saturday Fluffernutter: That Dog Snoop; Someone Tell Bono To Turn Down the Damn Music; Ya-Ya Sisterpants; Jerry Wexler 1917- 2008

August 23rd, 2008

Saturday Fluffernutter – all the fluffy news about those nutty celebrities.

In the movie “Dodgeball,” Ben Stiller’s creepy character White Goodman is always saying something inappropriate, then following it up with, “just kidding… not really.” i.e.:

Kate Veatch: [outside Kate’s house] White? What are you doing here? How do you know where I live?
White Goodman: It’s called the Freedom of Information Act, Kate. The hippies finally got something right! Ha-ha! Just kidding. But not really.

Apparently P. Diddy, Doggy Dog has been studying up on his White Goodman:

Diddy claims that if he were in the Olympics, he would win a medal for having sex the longest.

“I think that’s an event I can do well in. And probably (I can) stay up the longest,” Diddy told New York magazine, usmagazine.com reported.

“Just so you know, that’s supposed to be funny. Even though I am serious.”

Creepy, and not very funny. No, really.

At Home in Hespeler is pleased to bring a new feature to Saturday Fluffernutter: Review in Brief. This week, it’s a movie review – The Sisterhood of the Ya-Ya Pants movie, part II:

“It’s pretty good Dad.”

Your welcome.

Four songs from U2’s upcoming album, No Line on the Horizon, were leaked onto the internet this week. Lead singer Bono was apparently listening to the tracks at his villa in the French Riviera when a passerby recorded them on his phone.

Which leads to the question: how loud was he playing the music that an audible recording could be made from outside the home? And if the owner of the music chooses to play it so loud, has he not placed the music into the public domain?

RIP Jerry Wexler (1917 – 2008).

Wexler helped run Atlantic Records during it’s early years when it was producing some of the most enduring records of the rock and roll era, including the Atlantic catalogue of Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and Wilson Pickett. He along with Ahmet Ertegun, signed Led Zeppelin to Atlantic Records. While working with Billboard magazine in the late 1940’s, early 50’s he coined the term Rhythm and Blues and was portrayed by actor Richard Schiff (Toby Ziegler on The West Wing) in the Ray Charles biopic Ray.

Jerry Wexler died last weekend at his home in Sarasota Florida of Congestive Heart Failure at the age of 91.
