I did not grow up in a Linda Ronstadt home. When it came to female singers of the sixties and seventies, my family’s loyalties lay with Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Cass Elliot, and Karen Carpenter. Up until 40 hours ago, the only Linda Ronstadt song on my iTunes was her 1974 cover of “You’re No Good”. But that was 40 hours ago, aka “The Before Times.” “Before what?” some of you might be asking. Before Sunday night’s episode of The Last Of Us. In one emotional scene, Nick Offerman’s Bill plays Linda’s song “Long Long Time” on the piano for Murray Bartlett’s Frank. Linda’s version (released in 1970) is played at the end of the episode. Variety reports that, on Sunday night, “Long Long Time” was up 4,900% in Spotify streams. That’s right, Linda got the Kate Bush “Stranger Things” bump! SPOILERS GALORE for The Last Of Us ahead… Continue reading
While there’s no crying in the teaser trailer for Amazon’s upcoming A League of Their Own series, there is some flirting which apparently is allowed in baseball. According to TVLine, the show “takes a deeper look at race and sexuality,” than the 1992 Penny Marshall-directed film of the same name that inspired it. This is rude because that’s Madonna’s entire reason for living and she isn’t even involved in this one!
Are you ready to go all the way back to 1995? Of course, you are! Crack open a Clearly Canadian, because Hulu has dropped the first teaser trailer for Pam & Tommy, aka the series that stars Lily James and Sebastian Stan. As you can see from that still shot above, they totally nailed Pamela Anderson’s aggressively square French tip mid-90s acrylics, and that’s half the battle.
This country’s fascination for everything to do with O.J. Simpson and Nicole Brown Simpson is sky-high…unless you’re Nick Offerman. Nick’s wife Megan Mullally was on the Halloween episode of Busy Philipps’ new talk show on E! last night, and when it came to ghost stories, hers may have just been trying to get Nick to hop aboard the S.S. Simpson!. Nick and Megan used to live in a house that was on property that previously housed a place O.J. rented for Nicole, and Megan says Nicole’s ghost haunted them. Continue reading
You know, six months ago we’d all be like “Cosby her? What the hell does ‘Cosby her’ mean? Like, he tried to give her a JELL-O Pudding Pop?”
Professional drunk aunt Chelsea Handler and RSILF (Ron Swanson I’d like to, well – you know) Nick Offerman were double-interviewed for Esquire’s Women & Men issue this month about sex and stuff, and at some point the conversation turned to Bill Cosby. Nick had made a joking reference to being “Cosbyed”, which – thanks to Hannibal Buress – we now know has nothing to do with frozen pudding, and that’s when Chelsea decided to tell a story about the time Bill Cosby allegedly tried to “Cosby” her.
