Geno Wins Dapper Dan.

Congratulations to 23 year old Pittsburgh Penguin's center Evgeni "Geno" Malkin for winning Pittsburgh's highest sports award, Dapper Dan.

Guess who was also present for the big night? popYEAH!'s name inspiration, Max Talbot. Always around for the spotlight that one.

You know how endearing I find broken english. This takes the cake. So adorable.

Chelsea and Abigail Get Bazaar.

In April 2010's issue of Harper's Bazaar Abigail Breslin poses as the “Hollywood brat,” while Chelsea Handler stars as her overwhelmed “publicist.” Here’s what Chelsea shared:

On Hollywood publicists: “Sometimes the publicists are worse than the star. They really are delusional. That’s why when I hired a publicist, I was like, I never want the type who is going to be such a pain in the ass and treats people terribly.”
On her dad, who she exploits in her latest book “Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang”: “[My father] likes to have any attention, whether it’s negative or positive. He is pretty much under the correct impression that he has no say in anything I do and that my childhood was humiliating enough. So it’s payback time. If he tried to sue me, he’d have to borrow money from me to sue me.”

On working out
: “[Sometimes] I’m running and get passed by a 70-year-old woman with a better body. I can’t be skinny all the time. I like to drink and I like to eat. I like burgers and bagels.”

Random combo. But I love it!

Lil' Archie.

On Tuesday Amy Poehler and her son, Archie Arnett on the set of her show "Parks and Recreation". Poehler and her husband, Will Arnett, have recently announced that they are expecting a second child. You can tell, she's showing a bit, non?
Is there a cutest baby award, because Archie here has won it. SO SO SO cute, non? And the name Archie just cinches it.

Gerard Does L.A. Woman.

Ok so I have never SUPER gotten the whole Gerard Butler thing.

This made it a little clearer though. Love The Doors. It was a bit of a melting moment for me. The accent too, that doesn't hurt.

I am actually less clear on the whole Gerard Butler thing now...

Finals Get in the Way of My Blogging Part 1.

Angelina Jolie is in Rome while on break from her new movie with Johnny Depp, "The Tourist". Where am I? In Rome. But I am also stuck in a library studying for finals. Ech. Of course.

If by some miracle I run into Angie and the bella bambini, I'll let you know. Maybe I will spy them out the library window. Le sigh. Finals are a bummer.

No, You're A Big Effing Deal!

I find this endearing. Biden's hilarious!

Blast From the Past

I could have sworn I'd posted this picture before, but I couldn't find it on the site. Last night/today, both Mischa and Lindsay hit new lows (literally for Lohan). The thing about these two is that they once had super promising careers. Gosh, they were so freaking cute.

Leaving a house party last night, Lohan took a tumble... into the bushes. Oh dear, I just don't know what to say about her. When was the last times she worked? SHE SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE STRIPPER IN THE HANGOVER. Sorry, she thought that role was beneath her. HA!

And, here's Mischa Barton. I don't even know what to say about this one. Remember when she was supposed to be on Georgina Sparks on Gossip Girl? Look what that did for Michelle Trachtenburg's career! She's on NBC now, and will be return to GG for the third or fourth time. Sucks to be Mischa.

I also want to say how great it is that Nicole Ritchie has turned her life around. Remember when she hung with that crew?

It's Just Not Fair

Seriously, this is the ugliest child I have ever seen. Like, I'm sitting in the library with physical reaction to this child. I want to throw up. Her name's Sadie Madison and clearly she's Adam Sandler's daugther. I just want to add that Sadie is the name of Courtney's dog, I can see the resemblance. Wikipedia (I know, shut up) says that Sadie is almost four... and that she has a younger sister. GOD HELP US ALL!

Here's Tina Fey with her daughter, Alice (simple, yet cute name) Richmond, a few weeks ago at a charity event in NYC. They're about a year apart and yet Alice is so much cuter. Poor, Sadie Baby - yes, that's what I call the dog too. She's going to have a tough life.

Hearts Break... Everywhere

Lots of Glee coming your way! It's bittersweet really. I, truly, just miss it so much. Anyways, paps caught Glee star Cory Monteith blowing with Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez. Of course, you know I love Taylor Swift and Selena seems like a sweetheart too. I love when celebrities can be friends and instead of just share eating disorders (ex. Nicole Ritchie and Lindsay Lohan).

Since, Award season rumors have been swirly about Canadian cutie Montieth and country star Swift. But, now, it seems like we've got pictures of a group date. Did you hear that? That noise was girls (and John Mayer) stabbing themselves with a fork and screaming, "WHYYYY?!" I like this. I'm not going to get my hope up too high because I'm sure they're just friend now, but I'm looking for a new favorite couple to replace Sandra and He-Who-Won't-Be-Named.

Ah, to be young and in like. Cory later tweeted, "I think I sprained my shin bowling." And, yes. They do follow each other on twitter. =]

Health Care Reform Approved.

Here is a picture of President Barack Obama's signature on the health insurance reform bill at the White House on March 23, 2010.

Like it or no, it's still a historic moment in history. I think we can all agree that we hope it leads to good things for our country!

How nervous would you be if you knew that the signature you were writing was going to be analyzed and looked at for possibly centuries? I think he maybe got a little nervous on the 'O', but the 'bama' gets it back together. 

He has the best left handed signature.

Oh, Sweet Child of His

What the hell are these kids on? What are they wearing? Where is their mother? Who dressed them? Why do their glasses look so stupid? I just... I can't. Ryan Philippe, stop making your adorable kids look so fug!

Not Cute, Tom

Oh, Tom Brady. What have you done to yourself? I really don't even know where to start. The most unflattering hair, shirt, pants and angle. When did your ass get so big? Clearly, he gained all of the weight Gisele refused to gain. The second picture tells me that it's not the angle. Oh, Tom Brady, why... I'm disgusted. I think I'd fight it. Would You Fight It?

No Title Needed

Come back, Glee. I Miss You!!

And, for those of you who don't know. Jane Lynch, who plays Sue Sylvester, was recently married. She's pictured above... with her wife... get it? Ha. It's even funnier now, isn't it?

Would You Rather?

Okay. Would you rather see...

The American remake of Death at a Funeral starring Chris Rock

Or, the original British version.

I'll probably see the remake because the first was really hilarious! Everyone should see it, fo sho.

The Best Birth Control Ever

The title says it all. Yup, this is Samantha from 16 and Pregnant in labor. Don't worry. It's not the bad Kardashian style, but trust me- you'll be scarred for life. But, the second time you'll laugh.

Just Save the Extra Letters

So, I'm watching 16 and Pregnant! I love this show. I'm 7.43 seconds in and I've already heard a line I'm never going to forget. Samantha's sitting around with her friend. They're talking about what they did when she told them about her pregnancy. One girl said she bawled her eyes out because of all the things they'd planned to do during their senior year. Then, the worst line ever in the history of television was uttered by some girl that she just go die.

"You can't really prevent pregnancy."
I'm sorry. I cannot get over that. Has she never seen this show? Forget the show, has she never heard of birth control or condoms?! I was glad when the pregnant girl correctted that wasted of space ignorant hoe. 

Samantha and Eric have already decided to name their daughter - Jordan. Actually, they'll be spelling like this Jordynn. Yup, with the y and double n. Seriously, you're just asking for a lower test scores. Part of the reason my mom gave me my name was because she read an article about sexism and racial profiling in school based on names. I bet Jordan and Jordynn are three points apart - probably more in an English class. We'll see how it goes. The couple seems happy - at least they're still together... for now. Sorry, I really just had to add that for people that watch the show.

Oh, apparently the mom Samantha's mom is pregnant. This seems to happen way too often.

Home Pictures!

Also, here's some pictures from my trip! More after the break.

Court and I really want encourage everyone to form their own opinions about the universal health care bill. Vote and write to your politicians with your opinion. If you don't like what's happening in our country, take a stand and do something. Don't just bitch about it.

We'll be doing our best to keep you fairly informed in the meantime. Both about this, and Lindsay Lohan's latest tweets. Word up.

Home Videos!

Hey, guys. In the wake of Congress passing the Health Care Bill, thought I'd post some home video I took at a Rally in DC over my spring break. My personal favorite is of the man dancing. I'll try to tweet pictures later. Follow me at theomarshall.

How Will Health Care Bill Affect Us NOW?

Click here to read CNN's article on the newly passed health care bill that President Obama will sign into law on Tuesday.

Basically the items that will go into effect immediatly are:
  • No more annual or lifetime caps. This will mostly affect patients with serious illnesses who face staggaring bills, as health insurance companies will not be allowed to place a cap on how much they will cover.
  • Help for the uninsured with pre-existing conditions. 
  • Coverage for older children (college students, this means YOU). Insurers will be required to provide coverage options for non dependent children up to the age of 26. This will help recent graduates as well as young adults who are between jobs and uninsured. 
  • A drug discount for seniors

Flying Colors.

This was for sure a test of the Shia Shame. But I got through it, and now my resolve is stronger than ever, no more shall I waste time lusting after Louis Stevens. Last year, his running pictures sent me into a tizzy. This year...I had a minor two minute struggle, and then nothing. I think it was the pants that put me over the edge- I know they're good for running, but...ech. Weird.
This is for our dear amica Claire, who I know will find the sexy in these running pictures without any shame, and power to her.

Shia ran in the L.A. marathon on Sunday, finishing the 26.2 mile race in 4 hours and 35 minutes. He ran for charity, for U.S. Veterans as you can tell by his tank top (his father served in Vietnam).

What Comes After Rock Bottom.

How many days??? Word up Tiger, you should probably be in treatment for more days than you've had mistresses. Just a tip.

The weird thing is, as much as I don't like him, this feels kind of sincere. I know, I know, I'm probably wrong. But there's something about a look I saw on his face..I don't know.

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure there is a publicist behind this apology, but...we'll see. I'll give him another chance. I mean, I never liked him before, so it's only up from here.

This ESPN reporter is actually the most annoying of the two.

Oh, ABC.

Yup, if you haven't heard, everyone will, at some point, get health care! But, what I want everyone to focus on is that the fact that Lindsay Lohan was on the front page of She's right below an article about Tiger Woods, Cambodian sex trade and President Barack Obama. I realized I'm writing this on a Celebrity Gossip Blog, but really?! How the eff did she make it on this page? And, with a story about her being banned from India. Does anyone in India even care if she's there? I feel like they have bigger problems.

Spoke too Soon

Rumors are surfacing of that douchebag, Jesse James, cheating on Sandra Bullock. Apparently, he had an 11 month long affair with a tattoo model named Michelle “Bombshell” McGee. First of all, how does one become a tattoo model? With each job, does she have to get a new tattoo? And, yes, Courtney, I checked. She's a tattoo model, not a tattooed model. Is anyone else as devastated as me? I loved Jesse James last week. Now, he can suck it. We're done! But, if this rumor is false, we can be cool again.

Sandra has cancelled a few appearances since the news broke this morning... not a good sign. F*ing Jesse James and his dumb tattoos.

Val? Are You In There?

Val, dude. WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU? Just a few short years ago (ok, maybe ten-ish) he was hot, with a body of steel immortalized in "The Saint". AKA the best-worst movie ever. Oh yeah, and there was also that little movie called "Top
Gun". Whatever.
What is a best-worst movie ever? A movie that is so horrible, so cheesy, that it goes all the way back around and starts being good again. A best- worst movie is the ultimate combination of these two. This movie usually has Elisabeth Shue in it. It doesn't hurt, anyways.

This is Val Kilmer now. No longer the action hero star we once loved and reviled, at the premiere of his movie "MacGruber" at the SXSW music festival in Austin, Texas.

Heartless Bastards and Friday Night Lights.

Friday Night Lights is amazing. It's simple. The best show ever. It combines everything, and makes it amazing. It even has great music.

You can preview "Friday Night Lights: Volume 2" HERE. It includes a track from Heartless Bastards, who I incidently just saw in concert in Paris with Brendan Benson. It was AMAZING. They are the kind that are even better live. So amazing. Since we were pretty much the only people in the hall who spoke english, I talked for a bit with the lead singer, Erika for a bit after the show. Really spacy, but very sweet- she grew up in Ohio, around Dayton, and now the band is in Austin, Texas. Also, she drank red wine on stage, instead of beer like most guys in bands do. I think that's real classy.

Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes Separate.

Kate Winslet and director Sam Mendes have announced that after six years of marriage, they have been separated since the beginning of this year.

They have one child together, Joe Alfie Winslet Mendes, and this is the second marriage for Winslet, who was married to film assistant Jim Threapleton in 1998 before divorcing in 2001, and had one child, Mia.
A lawyer for the couple stated,
“Kate and Sam are saddened to announce that they separated earlier this year. The split is entirely amicable and is by mutual agreement. Both parties are fully committed to the future joint parenting of their children. They ask that the media respect their privacy at this time.”
 So sad. I loved this couple! Hopefully they can work things out.

Outside Looking In on Anderson.

Anderson many times does he have to prove that he's the coolest person EVER? The cover of Outside rugged of him.

I love it when we have things in common- it makes me feel more...right. If Anderson says it, it's true. I'm against people who jump out of airplanes too. Sorry Abs. Taking senseless risks is such a weird impulse to me. Anderson's right- why not take that and go someplace where there's real life or death situations going on?

Then again, I am a coward, so I really have no place to say anything except COURTNEY CALLED IT, ULTIMATE EDITION. Anderson, wearing a jean shirt on the cover of this magazine. Anderson knows what's going on in fashion. If he's wearing it, it's a trend. He can do no wrong.

On overcoming fear: “I don’t believe you should be ruled by fear in anything in life. I don’t like anything that scares me, I prefer to face it head-on and get over it. Anyone who says they’re not scared is a fool or a liar or both. I just don’t want that fear in my stomach to be a part of my life, so I work to eliminate it.”

On skydiving being senseless: “I have no interest in jumping out of an airplane, or any of the things people do for thrills to push the limit and all that. To me, that seems foolish. There’s no point. If people are suffering in a place, to me, it’s not a question of whether I’m going to go or not. It’s a question of how fast can I get there.”

On springing into action while in Haiti: “You suddenly find yourself in a situation where, you say … what do you do? There are some journalism purists who say that you do nothing, that you just watch and report, and I certainly understand that. But in the case of a little boy who got hit in the head with a cement block, no one was helping him. He couldn’t get up. ...Blood was pouring from his head. It was a split second decision to take him out of the situation.”

Le sigh.

Miley Thinks the Internet is Lame.

She makes a point. In a totally self-loving, 'I'm so awesome and you are so small' kind of way. She's growing, learning, loving- peace man. You are small minded and inhibited.

You have to remember- Destiny Hope Cyrus is special.

She may be an ass about it, but she has a point. Not that I'm following it at all- but then again, we were different. It was all about TV for us. If we were on the internet, it was a few smuggled minutes on AIM on the family computer before your mom started being nosy.

“I’m telling kids, don’t go on the internet,” said Cyrus. “It’s dangerous, it’s not fun, it wastes your life, and you should be outside playing sports or something.”
Miley continued, “I just think it’s kind of lame. I feel like I hang out with my friends and they’re so busy taking pictures of what they’re doing and putting them on Facebook that they’re not really enjoying what they’re doing. You’re going to look back and have a million pictures, but you’re not going to be in any of them. Because you’re not having fun, you’re too busy clicking away. So I think just enjoy the moment you’re in, and stop telling people about it. Just enjoy it.”

True Blood Returns!

Season three of "True Blood" kicks off on Sunday June 13. That will make a happy birthday for my sister- amazing present, don't you think?

More Jason Stackhouse, what else could anyone ask for?

Earlier this year, it was reported that Southland stud Kevin Alejandro joined the cast. He’ll play Jesus, an orderly who takes care of Lafayette’s mother and gets romantically involved with Lafayette.

Beauty and the Baby

Gisele Bundchen is on the cover of April's Vogue. The spread was shot months apart with Gisele posing with her and Tom Brady's youngest son, Benjamin. The butt of the baby is already more cute than some kid's faces. You have to worry about celebrity's genes, two beautiful people are supposed to make ugly babies right? Maybe, you should take a look back at Brady's eldest with another supermodel, Bridget Moynahan.

Damn you, Tom Brady. And, your good looks and genes.

While, the photos are precious, Gisele's interview pisses me off. First, I'm not a mother- but still, shut up. Two, this is the same woman that said child birth wasn't at all painful. On staying fit, Gisele said:
"I did kung fu up until two weeks before Benjamin was born, and yoga three days a week. I think a lot of people get pregnant and decide they can turn into garbage disposals. I was mindful about what I ate, and I gained only 30 pounds."
People do kung-fu?! Plus, you're a freaking supermodel. Blessed with a high metabolism and millons for someone to teach you KUNG FREAKING FU! Calm it down, lady. Let's not get all high and mighty on ourselves. Oh, wait. Too late.

For the Mommas!

Did you guys see Sandra Bullock's acceptance speech for her Best Lead Actress Role for her portrayal of Leigh Anne Tuohy in the Blind Side. Truly, I was crying. I feel like Sandra would be an amazing friend. She'd make you laugh, hold you when you're crying and then laugh that your mascara is running. I really love her. She just shines. I don't know how to put it in any other words. She's just amazing. Plus, her dress. She was styled to perfection in a gown by Marchesa. I'm attaching her speech. I'm also going to add that Jesse James is f*ing hot. They have to be my favorite celebrity couple... The love in their eyes. fjoidnfwe!

Have you guys heard a better speech this season?

The Longest 1:33 of Your Life.

Either because you're holding your breath with anticipation or laughing so hard that you're running out of breath, this will be the longest 1:33 of your life.

Bella. Edward. Jacob. AHHH.

Coco On the Go-Go.


In classical Conan style, he announced it via Twitter, and it is appropriately called "The Legally Prohibited From Being Funny on Television Tour".

See if your city made the cut after the jump:

John Hamm Goes to the Dolls.

I hate Barbie dolls, on principle. But these...I think I might be able to make an exception for these. I mean, if I had 75 bucks to just randomly drop.
Given the doll treatment will be the Draper duo, Don and Betty, played by John Hamm and January Jones, the gorgeous Christina Hendricks' Joan, and Roger Sterling himself, John Slattery.

So dashing, non? Season 4 of "Mad Men" premieres this summer.

'Twitter'. Yeah, Sure.

I officially was wrong about Twitter. I love it. Now I get all these great "Glee" insider pictures/info! How could I have been in the dark so long?

Or maybe that's what 'Twitter' wants me to think. If that is even it's real name.
(follow me on twitter HERE. And no, this does not count as me being a total Perez Hilton)

Make A Man Look You In the Eyes.

Ok is it weird that Marion Cotillard still is the most gorgeous woman ever, even with those things on her face? How does she do it?

Eclipse Trailer.


Just kidding. It looks pretty much like the other ones. I've read the book- I know how this ends. In a bloody blaze of Stephenie Meyers horrible writing.

The High Road.

The High Road

Broken Bells | MySpace Music Videos

The album for Broken Bells, the musical duo of Danger Mouse and Shins frontman James Mercer, came out yesterday, and this is a video for the first single on the self-titled debut, "The High Road".


Betty to Host SNL.

Betty White is AWESOME. A goddess. My Lord, she is my answer to that stupid question "If you could have lunch/dinner with anyone, living or dead..." you know the rest. The answer, always: BETTY FREAKING WHITE.

Now my ultimate dream has come true- Betty is doing Saturday Night Live. She confirmed to People magazine at the 18th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Award Viewing Party.

Lorne Michaels has denied rumors that she will be hosting a women of comedy night with SNL, but that's just as well- Betty doesn't need other gals cramping her style. Many years of "Golden Girls" have taught us that. She's a solo act these days, and look what it's done for her?

SO excited. So so so so so.

Really Hallmark? Really.


Community Twitter.

So, I now have a me/popYEAH! twitter. I always SWORE it would never happen, but I've got this little baby blog to think about, ya know? Some things are more important than your ideals and morals.

One of our mission statements is, and I quote, "To spread popYEAH! to the a non- disease kind of way." I am simply living up to that mission.

I do however, swear I won't pull a Perez and be super annoying about it. Follow HERE. Do or do not- your choice, I won't beat you into submission by putting it at the end of every post. 

Anyways, the upside is that now I can follow celebs, and I learned this info from Joel McHale's  twitter. "Community" has been picked up for another season! I mean, we all knew it would probably happen as one of the best comedies of the season, but it's still exciting as my first twitter discovery.
He posted this five hours ago, which is...I don't know when in California. Too much math for me.
We're out celebrating the pick up. We all are remarkably sober. it's still early
Ok, I am going to say it was...midnight-ish when that was posted. Don't hold me to it.

OMG- new realization. I can follow Miley Cyrus and get my daily dose of the ultimate twitter twat every day. It's the little things, really...

Liz Lemon and Tony Stark, Super Comedy Couple.

Best moment of the Oscars. Possibly ever. Two of my favorite people ever, together, being hilarious.

Their babies would be so gifted- if only they weren't both married. Damnation.

"A collaboration between handsome, gifted people, and sickly little mole people."


Ok, maybe I am getting a little too excited about this. 

Daylight of Danger Mouse.

Danger Mouse, aka Brian Burton, has been EVERYWHERE these past few weeks. First of all, he has a new musical duo with Shins frontman James Mercer, Broken Bells, whose first album came out today. It's awesome, check it out. I heard a sneak preview when I listened to their interview on NPR a few days ago.

He ALSO has a CD coming out, "Dark Night of the Soul", which was a collaboration between him and Sparklehorse frontman Mark Linkous, who I hate to say, because sad smut is not our game here, committed suicide a few days ago.
This record was tied up because a dispute between Burton (aka Danger Mouse, the producer) feared EMI, the label, would sue him if it was commercially released. Classic clash of money and talent.

With appearances from Iggy Pop, The Flaming Lips and Julian Casablancas made the stalling of this record a real tragedy, however it was "leaked" online. It seems, however, that bygones are indeed bygones, and both parties hope to release the album officially this year, as stated to BBC 6 Music.

"The problems of last year are last year, so hopefully it will be out soon in June or something like that," said Burton, or Danger Mouse.

"We can confirm that EMI are working with Brian Burton AKA Danger Mouse again, and are delighted to be doing so. Further information on releases will follow shortly," said a spokesperson for EMI.

So excited.

International Woman's Day.

I had literally NEVER heard of this until yesterday. Apparently it's a lot bigger in Italy  and Europe than the U.S. Unless you're Michelle Obama. Looking totally lovely, she made a speech yesterday in honor of Woman's Day, and said,

“I get to speak first while he stands and watches. I love this,” she said to laughter. “Look at me adoringly,” she told her husband.

In Italy, they sell special flowers on the street that are yellow and look like an allergy ridden person's worst nightmare, but it's a very sweet thought. Although the general sentiment among women is that it is political, thereby not sincere. Perhaps a bit like saying that Valentine's Day etc. are creations of greeting card companies.

I can see the point, since Italy has the lowest amount of women in Parliament in all of Europe. Nice.
