In All Her Plastic Glory, Elizabeth Taylor Barbie Looks More Like Liz Than Lindsay Ever Will

limited edition Liz Taylor BarbieMattel’s special edition White Diamonds Liz Taylor Barbie‘s arrival is very appropriate considering the iconic actresses’ dedication to AIDS research and awareness dating back to the early 80’s (back when acknowledging that the disease could affect anyone other than disgusting gay man whores was taboo), and that today is World AIDS Day.

Priced at $150 dollars and wearing a white dress very similar to the one from 1958’s Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, the doll comes with gloves, sunglasses, mini perfume bottle and a movie script.

Take note, Peter Jackson. This is what Gollum is supposed to be, twisted and terrifying and a little sad. It’s nothing that easily translates to film. No offense to Andy Serkis.  Continue reading “This Is What Gollum Should Look Like…”

Nearly identical shoes as seen worn by Michael J Fox in the iconic film Back To The Future Part II sold today for a whopping $37,500 to “Written In The Stars” rapper Tinie Tempah.

1,500 pairs of these 2011 Limited Edition “Nike Mags” have been put on Ebay, starting at around $6,000. The $37,500 dollar pair that went to Tinie Tempah were sold at a special auction in L.A. thus explaining their surprising price-range.

The proceeds do go to the Michael J. Fox’s Foundation For Parkinson’s Research, so I actually encourage rich people to buy them. I just don’t know who would actually wear them down the street?
