Wednesday Afternoon Quick Hits
Schwarzenegger museum to close due to financial problems. Don't worry: it will be back. Maybe. Okay... Probably not.
Journey keyboardist and his appendix go their Separate Ways. Band tells Pittsburgh The Party's Over, but hopefully We Will Meet Again.
The BBC gets into the slow news day spirit by interviewing four online game addicts.
Academics plan Springsteen symposium. Papers include "Marxist Perspective on 'Darkness on the Edge of Town'", "The Boss and the Bible", "Dancin' In the Dark: The Whitest Dance Moves Ever Captured On Film".

This guy deserves his very own post. I don't know about you people, but I want this dude at my next party. He's the hulahoop master.[link]
Is Gwen Stefani still a fat dork?
Gwen Stefani says she can't consider herself a sex symbol because she still thinks of herself as "fat little dorky kid." I was not aware that dorky fat kids were comfortable enough to showcase their stomach at every public event. Well, I just didn't know that until TODAY. Thank you Gwen. Thank you for showing us the light. You are an inspiration to dorky fat kids everywhere! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go grab a dingdong because it's obviously working wonders for you.
Kirsten Dunst and Legolas Greenleaf caught canoodling?
Kirsten....Kirsten....no. Did you not see LoTR's? He's a pansy little elf with a bow and arrow. Sure he can run real fast and he is obviously good with his hands, but I think if we are going based on skills you should give Gimli some loving. No? racist b**ch.[I don't like you in that way has the scoop]
"Chick" by Nicky Hilton Fashion Show
I'm not a fashionista but I'm pretty sure that's not a dress. I see where her knees start and I see where that skirt ends and I'm thinking it's more bedroom attire than clubbing wear. Shockingly, even with that being said the rest of Nicky's fashions look as if they will be hitting K-mart this fall, a store I'm sure Nicky doesn't even know exists.[link]
Naomi Campbell, super-bitch strikes again!
Notoriously super-rude supermodel Naomi Campbell smacks around another woman. You know, if you people had done your research you would have known she is acting this way because her serotonin levels are down. Sit her down, tell her she's the most beautiful woman alive (lying is just part of the job), give her a cookie and a glass of milk and she'll be back to her super sweet self in no time.[Perez Hilton scoop]
The Sh*t Hits The Fans
"You know, I'm not even sure where to begin this week. To be honest, after finding out the truth about what went on behind camera (or in some cases, in front of the camera but never aired) on Kill Reality it kind of makes watching people whack potato chip bags around seem kind of dull. For those of you who aren't aware, I am referring of course to the article from Radar magazine mentioned here yesterday in which it describes the off-screen antics of our reality stars."

Olsen Twins Visit Much Music Studios
"From their movie & television escapades to their fashion empire, it seems like Mary-Kate Olsen & Ashley Olsen are everywhere. But when they appeared at Much HQ for an exclusive live appearance, they were completely overwhelmed by the gargantuan crowd who came to see them! The twin titans sat down with Devon Soldendiek to chat about their empire, music and living a normal life!"
Yeah, the first thing I think of when I look at the Olsens is 'normal'. I mean every girl has their own line of clothing, make-up line, sitcom deal, a freaky-twin sister and has worked with Bob Saget. I can totally relate to them.[videos and pictures of their MM visit]

Best of Wednesday Linkage
The Most Extraordinary Space Investigations - "Chided by critics initially as being a "f**k you" to audiences and artists alike, Harmon, Najarian, Roiland and Silverman have bounced back from number 5, have achieved their show's highest rating so far and are now nibbling at Yacht Rock's ass. In an even stranger turn of events, as of the passing of Gregory Shitcock, MESI has just become the current longest running show in Prime Time. Perhaps the audience is starting to warm to its improvised style or perhaps this crew is getting better at making a show they want to see." (link thanks to cynicalsmirk)
Sawyer Sawyer Sawyer - I'm a little confused by this short flash video but I'm not complaining for at least 20 seconds I was amused. Anyone else miss 'Lost'? *thanks to reader* - The Sawyer video is a parody on the Llama video.
Gary the no trash cougar - Best. Mascot. Ever. Just another classic clip from Family Guy.
The Lego Clan - Legos. Always fun. (direct video link)
Just Two Guys - They will burn the roof off...cause they are having a good time.
