Not only are the sculpts and paint jobs even better than the previous series, but they're cheaper, too! Too bad the band announced they would no longer be releasing new albums, but at least we got the Gorillaz movie to look forward to.
Uncle Loong - Vinyl Figure
Who is Uncle Loong? He's the mascot of xl-shop.com, a Malaysian website where I would buy toys before so many sites sold the same items domestically.
This figure's very nicely made, and comes with a hat, glasses, an umbrella and a tiny toy train. It's a solid, appealing design, with a strong sculpt and nice paint work. The attention to detail is nice, too - there's plastic 'lenses' in the glasses, and the earring is a separate metal piece.
These oil versions of the Zliks vinyl toys are also cool. With the eyes as separate pieces and can be 'posed' into different facial expressions.
After just one season on the nation's favorite "ladies talkin'" show, The View, Rosie O'Donnell announced (in the above clip, prior to her picking things off Barbara's lip) that she could not settle on a contract and will be leaving.

Here's the whole interview, some of the sound is hard to make out with all the background noise, notice the lack of interest from passing pedestrians:
Tom Baasner was fired from his job again, so in typical
fashion he decided to make the most of it, desperate and
delusional, he setup his office on the sidewalk:

Here's Steve Carell and Anne Hathaway in-costume for their roles as Maxwell Smart and Agent 99 in the movie remake of the Cold War sitcom Get Smart.
Edward Norton is the New Hulk
Marvel Studios has announced that Edward Norton will play Bruce Banner in the sequel to The Incredible Hulk. Word on the street is that the new hulk will be a green supremacist who's always freaking out and curb stomping everyone.
First Shot of Iron Man
A shot has emerged of one of the Iron Man suits from the upcoming movie based on the comic. This is the armored suit first constructed by Tony Stark to escape while being held as a POW, making me wonder why John McCain was held so long. I can't help but wonder what you do if you have to poop while you're in that thing. I had a hard enough time in snow pants.
