Russian Town of Sochi is in no Way Ready for the Olympics: Full of Stray Dogs, Incomplete Hotel Rooms and Toxic Water

Sochi dirty
Putin’s stance on gays isn’t the only big story coming out of Sochi. The site chosen to host this year’s Olympics in the Southwestern corner of Russia along the Black Sea is an absolute mess. A mess that a handful of bold journalists have been live tweeting since their arrival…

Hotel rooms are reportedly missing things, and while they are often without electricity they do have toxic water, uncovered manholes toilets that don’t flush even the softest paper and a boatload of homeless dogs.

A reporter for the Chicago Tribune wrote “My hotel has no water. If restored, the front desk says, “do not use on your face because it contains something very dangerous.” ”  Continue reading “Russian Town of Sochi is in no Way Ready for the Olympics: Full of Stray Dogs, Incomplete Hotel Rooms and Toxic Water”

‘Game of Thrones’ Direwolf Lives With Actress Who Plays Sansa Stark

Sophie turner adopted direwolf In your daily “awww,” the dog actress (is there still not a less informal word for that?) who played Lady on Game of Thrones was adopted in real life by Sophie Turner, aka the actress who plays Sansa Stark.

“Growing up I always wanted a dog, but my parents never wanted one,” Turner told The Coventry Telegraph of the gorgeous Mahlek Northern Inuit Dog she was introduced to three years ago. “We kind of fell in love with my character’s dire wolf, Lady, on set. We knew Lady died and they wanted to re-home her.”

I wish I had enough space to “re-home” all the animals I’ve mourned in film and TV, but I only mean that if Mufasa counts. And the octopus from Oldboy.

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are Done, Over, Finita etc.

Robert Pattinson moving outRobert Pattinson stuffed his favorite grease-stained band tees, guitar picks and biscuits into some Glad trash bags and drove his beard and dogs away from Kristen Stewart’s home in Los Feliz.

(The Spanish-to-English translation of Los Feliz is “The Happy.” Ironic huh?)

Nobody knows exactly why these two split up for the second or third or bajillionth time, but everyone likes to guess. If a bird poops in the air enough he’s bound to hit his target (human female hair) eventually, right?

Certain TMZ employees (and maybe other randoms) think they only got back together for publicity and are splitting now because Breaking Dawn Part 2 is out on DVD. That theory is terrible because the movie came out two months ago.

Others aren’t sure if he was actually moving out or just taking some crap to Goodwill…  Continue reading “Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are Done, Over, Finita etc.”

The Best Of ‘Dog Shaming,’ On Tumblr

A Tumblr page dedicated to dogs standing next to handwritten confessions (everything from crayon addictions to eating the crotch out of jeans to stealing ice cream from children), is doing well this month.

So well that it spawned a Cat Shaming site, which is not nearly as funny.  Continue reading “The Best Of ‘Dog Shaming,’ On Tumblr”

Outkast’s Big Boi Arrested On Crazy Drug Charges

One part of Outkast was arrested today in Miami and charged with one count of paraphernalia possession and three counts of controlled substance possession. 36 year old Antwan Patton aka Big Boi was booked at about 1:30 pm  on a $16,000 bond, according to the Florida authorities.

The real juice here is the drugs he had on him, which were found by customs/border patrol dogs. MDMA powder (crushed ectascy) ecstasy tablets AND unprescribed viagra. Whoa. Boi likes to partyyyyy. Apparently while “rolling” with a boner. Ouch.

The contraband was found in his luggage. And his lawyer, Daniel Kane, already issued a statement on his client’s behalf:

“While Big Boi was traveling with his group and friends, a small amount of contraband was found in the collective luggage…I am confident when the entire facts are aired Big Boi will be completely exonerated.”

Hmmmm… Hopefully this won’t impact that new Outkast material with Andre 3000 we’ve been hearing about.
