Fug File: band name

Fugs and Pieces, May 10, 2013


Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there! (Especially ours!) Please read and enjoy:

– You need to read this, at the Hollywood Reporter: $40,000-a-Night Escorts: Secrets of the Cannes Call Girls. Yes. Exactly. (THR)

– Vulture put together The Ultimate Don Draper Pitch, in a piece I like to call OMG First Season Jon Hamm Is SOOOOOOOOOO Good-Looking. (Vulture)

– Exhibit L in the series The Internet Is So Weird (In a Good Way): Ryan Gosling Won’t Eat His Cereal. (Gosloving)

Rick Moranis is back! This is great news, and timely, since I just watched Ghostbusters this weekend. Many Shubs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Sloar that day, I can tell you! (Vulture)

– Over at the Cut, Rebecca Harrington has done a great series of really brilliant and funny articles where she goes on the crazy diets endorsed by celebrities — I’ve linked to them before. This week: GOOP gets it. (The Cut)

This weekend is the 20th birthday of DONNA MARTIN GRADUATES. Vulture talks to Tori Spelling. (Vulture)

– Lainey and I agree that if the story about the Hemsworths intervening with Liam to dump Miley is true, we are kind of Team Miley. (Although I find the story about an actual anti-Miley intervention to be hilarious, theoretically. I like to think they had a PowerPoint, and it was ALL pictures from The Last Song.) (Lainey)

Let’s look at some May brides throughout Royal History, shall we? (The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor)

Beyonce’s rider demands hand-carved ice balls. (Allegedly.) “Hand-Carved Ice Balls” is also the name of my new band. We are TOUGH. (Celebitchy)

A 105 year-old woman claims bacon is the secret to her long life. TELL ME MORE. (Time)

– Cosmo — brilliantly –ranks Carrie Bradshaw’s boyfriends. Do not get me started on how much I still want to slap Berger. (Cosmo)

The Saul Bass Google Doodle is basically the best thing ever. Seriously. (Slate)

MTV Movie Awards Fug Carpet: Zoe Saldana


I’m almost at a loss for words — which, ironically, is when we usually default to typing, “WORDS.”

But there aren’t really words, other than nonsense ones strung together. In the spirit of this being an MTV event, let’s play Fug or Band Name.

a) Lycra Witch Garden

b) Pot-Pourri Gangrene Syndrome

c) Awful Dot Mauling (this could also be the name of a person you really hate — like, “Ugh, here comes Awful Dot Mauling, of the New Hampshire Maulings”)

d) Stockingblossom von Kneecap

I’m thinking… all of the above.
