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

Friday LinkFrogging – 4/8/11

A tremendous Friday to you all.

Yes, I just dropped some Rome on you.  What can I say?  Its Smackoff Friday and I just back to the office after running some errands.  The calls were well above par so far and if there’s anything we like here, its good smack.

Well, that and cheesecake.

See what I did there?

Clever, I know.

While you sit there dazzled by epic wordplay, say hello to this week’s cheesecake, Jennifer Garner.

Ms. Garner stars opposite Russell Brand in the new version of Arthur that opens today.  I’m frankly sick of the commercials and ready for this thing to hit the screen already.  I’ve never been sure that there was a need to remake Arthur in the first place.  Dudley Moore knocked that one out of the park like an 8-year-old did to my machine pitch team last night…3 times.

Still, despite my misgivings on the remake, Ms. Garner’s geek cred is solid.  She began her career playing a scantily clad spy in Alias.  Then she moved on, showing her range by playing a leather clad ninja in both Daredevil and Elektra.  She took a swing at Tom HanksBig with 13 Going on 30 and helped out a girl in trouble in Juno.

Since then she’s gone on to MILF status, a series of rom-coms and marriage to the Man Without Fear (as evidenced by his role in Gigli), Ben Affleck.

One final thought on the Arthur remake.

Do you think Katy Perry is going to do a brassy pop version of “Arthur’s Theme“?  Seems like a no brainer to me.

Right now, the best that we can do is hit the links.

Rack me. Continue reading

Friday LinkFrogging – 6/4/10

KILLER!

Back in the saddle again!

With all apologies to Gene Autry, I’m glad to be here once again to bring you our weekly linkfest.

Before I get too far along, I want to give a big thanks to Chris for covering for me last week.  I loved the coining of FOGG.  Well done sir.  Well done.

While I was unable to find any actual chupacabra, I did have a celebrity sighting of the 80s variety.  It seems the Bangles were staying at the same hotel I was and they ended up in the dining room with me and the rest of the expedition last Friday night.  Susanna Hoffs is holding up well true believers.

Before we give you the links, we have to give you a slice of cheesecake.  Don’t worry, I didn’t forget.

Say hello to Katherine Heigl.  Formerly of Grey’s Anatomy, Ms. Heigl returns to the big screen this weekend starring opposite Ashton Kutcher in Killers.  It will be interesting to see if she turns on Kutcher the way she turned on Judd Apatow after the success of Knocked Up.  Stay tuned, and in the meantime, on to the links. Continue reading
