Friday LinkFrogging – 4/22/11

 

Good Friday to you all.

We’re back to once again take a trip to the corners of the internet, both sacred and profane. Why?  Because its what we do.  We’re digital explorers.  We bring ‘em back alive and let you view from behind the glass.

Earlier this week, I was lamenting to the missus that I hadn’t come up with a suitable cheesecake selection for this week.  We haven’t hit the summer movie season which makes my life SO much easier and nobody has done anything new and/or mock worthy.

My wife, who gets the feature, said, “you know, this weekend is associated with rabbits. Why don’t you use someone who’s been a Playboy bunny?”

Or words to that affect.

Smart woman my wife.

Say hello to Jenny McCarthy won’t you?

Ms. McCarthy first rose to fame as the 1993 Playmate of the Year.  From there she moved into television, most notably as the co-host of MTV’s Singled Out.  It was there that she honed her brassy broad persona.  Since then she’s acted steadily in the movies and on television.  It hasn’t all been rosy.  Her 2006 movie Dirty Love was eviscerated by the critics and took home a wagon full of Razzies.

In recent years, Ms. McCarthy has become an outspoken autism advocate.

Friday LinkFrogging – 4/15/11

Greetings from the Land of ‘Geek kids.

Today would normally be Tax Day, but since Washington, D.C. is closed down for Emancipation Day (?) you’ve got until Monday to “render unto Caesar.”

Until then, why don’t you let us take your mind off all that with some links and cheesecake.

This week’s selection is the very rare double dip.  True, we’ve been featuring two pictures of our weekly selections for some time now, but today, for only the second time ever, we’ll be featuring two different ladies.

Why?

Simple really. 

Scream 4 opens today and as Wes Craven attempts to resurrect his Ghostface slasher franchise, we thought we’d do our part by featuring the ladies most associated with the franchise.

First up, above, say hello to Courtney Cox.

The former Friend and current resident of Cougar Town (make your own joke.  They do.), Ms. Cox plays intrepid reporter Gale Weathers in the series.  She’s been stalked by the Ghostface killer and David Arquette.  She escaped the killer, but got knocked up and cheated on by Arquette.  I don’t think that would have happened if she’d stuck with Bat-Man.  He’s single-minded that way.

Recently, the paparazzi caught her in the nearly obligatory “nip slip” while on vacation.  Never one to miss an opportunity, David Letterman asked about the incident while showing the picture on his show earlier this week.  Good thing he’s a friend of Bat-Man.

That’s Michael Keaton kids.

 

 Up next, we’ve got Neve Campbell.  Ms. Campbell plays Sidney Prescott, the de facto heroine of the Scream movies.  She also spent some time with the Salinger five and practicing her Craft.  Still, perhaps her most famous non-Screamy cinematic moment is likely her pool makeout with former cheesecake/Mrs. Sheen, Denise Richards in Wild Things.

That’s why they make the Google kids.

On to the links. Continue reading
