Saturday FlufferNutter

November 25th, 2006

Back when I was a kid, I used to eat a sandwich made with Peanut Butter and Fluff – a marshmallow spread. They were called Fluffernutters.

Starting today, a new and hopefully regular feature will appear Saturdays with the weeks pop culture/celebrity type news. Hespeler ET, if you will.

I regularly want to have a go at some celebrity story, but am aware that it is space filling junk, and many of you may not want to read it. With that in mind, the Saturday feature will allow me to spout off about Tom Cruise – Katie Holmes nuptials, and still stay fairly true to what I envisioned for this Blog (which was no Madonna all the time). As I have lately gone away from political/new blogging on weekends, this will fill the void a little.

The feature will be called the Saturday FlufferNutter, because it is a bunch fluff about a bunch of nuts, but mostly because I miss my fluffernutters:

Can’t get enough Kramer. Now, some fans are boycotting Seinfeld product. Personally, I have been boycotting the stuff for years, but only because I don’t get the entertainment factor from the show that makes me want to spent $50 on the DVDs. But I understand the reaction. I feel that way when entertainers spout off politically. “Shut up and sing,” is the term we conservatives use. For me, If your a marginal act on my radar, say the Barenaked Ladies or Sean Penn, I just don’t give my money to you. But if your Bruce Springsteen, well you get away with it. So thinking of boycotting Seinfeld, go ahead – why should that jerk get a penny of your money. Unless of course, your really hurting yourself.

Liked this from the Kirkland article noted above:

One weak-minded Seinfeld fan who wants no part of a boycott is worried about buying Season 7 when most of the clerks at his video store in L.A. are black.

What? in all of LA, there is only one video store? For God’s sake, go to Walmart.

Saw Casino Royale this weekend. My comment is thus, if somebody tells you he’s the best Bond since, well anybody, ask them if they are a fan of Bond movies. My bet is they aren’t really. I am, and he’s awful. One car chase in the whole movie, ten seconds in the lame ass Bond rolls the car. One scene he is so love sick puppy-ish I though Sandra Bullock was going to walk by carrying a bag of groceries with a baguette sticking out the top. It was painful! Supposedly its exceptionally written, but it’s not an exceptionally written “Bond” movie. After the natural ending, the money is returned, Bond and girl are stowed away together, the movie continues on for another half an hour. Instead of roll credits we get to suffer through some agonizing bit of filming. Long and short of it, in ten years, when he has been digested, Daniel Craig will rate somewhere along with Timothy Dalton and George Lazenby in the Bond range, possibly even behind Dalton.

OJ Simpson appeared, then disappeared from the news-cycle the past two weeks. While many commentators where saying stuff to the effect “people will buy his book, they always do,” I disagree. Every once in a while people see through the hype and the crap – Mariah Carrey’s the Confessions of MiMi, Bennifers film catastrophe GiGi to cite two examples. Every once in a while you can underestimate the intelligence of the American consumer. I strongly suspect this was one of those cases, and the publishers figured that out.

Ask and I shall recieve. Back on September 12th, Bob Seger Day in At Home in Hespeler, I mentioned the upcoming tour, with this proviso:
Looking forward to seeing you…

Toronto is on your list if dates, right Bob?

Well, it was and is. Tuesday January 23rd, Air Canada Centre. Tickets are on sale now.

Laughed when I read the people in the Italian town of Bracciano are upset that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes didn’t stick around after the wedding to mingle with the locals. Did anybody really think they were going to get close to His Cruisness without security clearance and a job to do?

Proving that he is the devil incarnate, Cruse’s wedding has caused grief between David Beckham and his manager, and a rift has developed between Cruise and his close friend John Travolta because Travolta’s pal Oprah Winfrey was not on the guest list.

Two deaths of note this week: condolence to the families of John Allen Cameron and Robert Altman.

    Thanks Hammer

    I must confess, I was partly inspired by the way you combine the two things.
