Weekend Roundup

Friday night, I went to see Aimee Mann perform at the House Of Blues on the Sunset Strip. I hadn't seen her live since 2000 - when she was basking in all the Oscar nomination/Magnolia glory - and I had forgotten how great she is live. Her latest CD, The Forgotten Arm is okay, though still not as good as Bachelor No. 2.

Glen Phillips, the former lead singer of Toad The Wet Sprocket, opened for her. His performance was basically just him and an acoustic guitar for 45 minutes. I'm just thankful we got there late, and only caught his last 2 songs.

Last night I saw House Of Wax, which is highly worth the 10 bucks just for Paris Hilton's death scene. I don't think I've laughed so hard in years!

Not so laughable - and actually rather boring - was the ABC Primetime Live special, "Fallen Idol." What an utter waste of time. I don't really care if Paula Abdul banged Corey Clark, that special had nothing redeeming about it. All it did was paint Clark as being completely shady.

Paula made an appearance on Saturday Night Live last night, poking fun at her recent wave of bad news in the press. When life hands Paula lemons, she turns it into Crystal Light.

    Crystal Light spiked with Jesus Juice!

    And Paula spiked with heroin.

    Aimee looks like she just inhaled a dildo.

    Former AMERICAN IDOL contestant Corey Clark says he can prove his sex claims with Judge Paula Abdul -- by identifying a "distinguishing characteristic" on Abdul's body, the DRUDGE REPORT can reveal!
    "He says it's a 'distinguishing characteristic' few have seen, only those who have been intimate with her," claims a well-placed FOX source who has been briefed on the development.
    A source close to the beleaguered IDOL judge called Clark's claim an "outrageous violation of privacy."
    Clark now appears to be taking a turn out of the Paula Jones-Clinton playbook.
    "He's hungry for attention," says the FOX source. "He wants to play this out all summer long, with his lawyer Richard Jefferson."


    20 bucks says the "distinguishing characteristic" Corey Clark's referring to is Paula's 7-inch penis. Maybe that's what Aimee Mann just inhaled. At least, I wish she'd inhale mine...

    Oh, and the Paris death scene in "House of Bikini Wax," while laughable, did not make up for the fact that she suckes, the movie sucked, and I wasted $10 on that trash. Because at the end of the day, it was just a movie, and she really didn't get a sharp, steel pole shoved through her head.

    And current faves Interpol lost some credibility with me for letting their song "Roland" be used in this awful movie -- now whenever I hear that song, I'll see images of Paris's nasty, skeletal body gyrating in red bra and thong in front of some young, less-queenie Cuba Gooding, Jr.

    Then again, Interpol GOT PAID, whereas I actually PAID to see it, so I guess I lost even more credibility with myself.
