Rock Of Love Three: It’s On!

Botox Bandi
Bret Michaels: Still Looking for Love

Surely no one who has seen either season of VH1’s Rock Of Love will be too surprised to hear the news that Poison Front Man / Reality Show Whore Bret Michaels and his latest “True Love,” Ambre Lake have broken up. Shocking! My take on Rock Of Love is that it operates along the lines of these various wars (Vietnam, Iraq) our Government gets us into so that Oil Barons and Foreign Banks can augment their wealth: It’s not so much a battle that can be won as it is an effort that needs to be maintained so that people behind the scenes can stuff their pockets with cash. Brett Michaels is a washed-up, borderline retarded, wig-wearing ‘80s Rock Star /Botox Junkie. If he was really looking for a girlfriend he could find one in two seconds. But then VH1 would lose out on all those ratings, and I wouldn’t have anything to watch at 9:00 PM on Sunday nights. And that would just be sad. According to the link above, this upcoming season takes place in Brett’s natural habitat: a gross, skank-ridden tour bus! YAY! Let the rampant tits-flashing and BJ-giving begin!

“This Really Blew My Mind”: The Economy According to Ben Stein

Ben!
Ben Hosting Win Ben Stein’s Money

Almost everyone knows Ben Stein from his immortal role as the High School Economics professor in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (most famous line, “Beuller…Bueller… Bueller?”) or his current stint as dead-pan co-host of VH1’s fantastic reality show, Americas Most Smartest Model (9:00 PM Sundays). But few people know that Ben Stein is actually a sage economist in real life! Here’s Stein’s latest article for the NY Times, The Long and Short of It at Goldman Sachs, which had everyone in my office at a Wall Street-based Global Banking Firm buzzing wildly. I especially love Stein’s clever integration of pop culture/music trivia into his economic diatribe. Enjoy!
