While you were working...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Britney Spears, like most with a sense of humor, is a fan of "Modern Family." After revealing this news on Twitter, Sofia Vergara tossed out the idea of a Spears cameo on the acclaimed ABC comedy. Brit herself said she'd "love" to do it, but what do you think? #GetBritneyonModernFamily? Discuss. [Billboard]
  • Can you picture Russell Crowe as the Biblical figure Noah? Rumor has it that if director Darren Aronofsky gets his way, Crowe will helm the ark in the reported adaptation of the Old Testament story in "Noah." [Deadline]
  • Those curious on what Sarah Jessica Parker would look like as Gloria Steinem in "Lovelace," now that she's taken over the role since Demi Moore dropped out, check the link. [TMZ]
  • If a Gosling-O-Gram just won't cut it, Time Warner Cable is offering subscribers something even more visual: The company is offering Digital TV subscribers all the Gosling they can handle by making his movies available on demand for the month of February. [NYDN]
  • The latest to join the Grammys performance lineup? None other than Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band!

    You are all wastes of space, air and time and ALL need to get lives. It's only the most self-centered, clueless, self-important, blowhard morons that make people HAVE TO read their lame personal conversations. Who uses a PUBLIC board to have PRIVATE conversations? Right. People who have no lives whom make it SEEM like they have lives by holding conversations ONLINE where everyone else MUST see them. Leave your living rooms/bedrooms/basements/home offices... and GET.SOME.LIVES!

    It's obvious that these people are coming on here with their convos to annoy people. There is nothing anyone can really do about it. It obvious they don't have the lives that they want others to think. I'm guessing some just don't have much pride and respect for themselves to make public fools of themsleves.

      You can speculate all you want but it is what it is.

      I mean, my opinion is that it may even be the same person on different aliases... but as you know it's the internet. ANYTHING is possible, no exceptions... my opinions could be FAR from the truth, and they can also be spot on. We'll never know; speculation is the best we can do... and with that said we should just leave it at that.

  12. I'd like to chime in

    First off, that email address doesn't work. I checked a long time ago. I agree with the crazy sign person. What's wrong with making some new "friends"? I like to chat with ppl. Is that a crime that I don't know about? I've seen Trix chatting with ppl before. Do I care? NO! I think it is pretty cool that these ppl can joke around with each other, without evening knowing each other. Why doesn't everyone just pull their panties out of their butts, and just get over it. Live & let live!

    • @ I'd like to chime in

      Doesn't work as in no one responded or doesn't work as in it came back as "undeliverable e-mail?" If the latter happened, then it's safe to assume that the "cc gang" is still here. I wouldn't be surprised at that. That would mean the "anti-troll" is cc.

  13. trix are for kids

    Let me make myself clear: I don't have a problem with your on- or off-topic posting whatsoever. Heck, I don't even care about tracie's posts or Richard Fore's trolling. It's all part of a public forum. Each person has a right to voice their opinions. Once in a while I admit I do get a little irritated at some people when they write ignorant drivel (like racist commentary) but honestly I usually don't care. There are no rules in forum posting other than adhering to the guidelines, so if that's taken care of it's all good.

    I have a problem with the fact that nothing makes anybody happy on this blog. You are danged if you do, and danged if you don't. I don't have a problem with anybodies posts, even yours. What I was saying is just post. This is an equal opportunity blog. Everybody has the same rights here. For a while, nobody even posted here they were so afraid of the trolls. At least, these ppl don't care about the trolls. They seem to have a little backbone. Let me ask you this, if somebody comments to you, do you not respond? No difference.

    Funny how this works. You b itch that we went off topic, yet, none of you are on topic at all. No worries, Sadie & I will be talking on the ph together after Tues, I'm sure of that. Why do you have a problem w/people from diff places making friends? It starts somewhere, ummm, like a blog. No one forces you to read the comments, skip over them. It only hap's on the wyww. You on the other hand troll all the blogs, big diff between you & me. BTW, I don't troll, I come here for a laugh. If I make some friends along the way, so be it. I'm done responding to you from here on out. Troll on if that's what makes you happy. Back to work for me, see ya on tonights wyww! πŸ™‚

    So what! Do you see anybody else posting on this one? Trolls drove everyone away. If you wanted to post something, why didn't you? You are just trying to start your own sh!t. Those ppl just being friendly, & having a little fun. Why is that such a problem for you. Obviously, they don't know the email ppl. If you want to post a comment, just do it. I'm sure they'd welcome you into the conversation. Why don't you get off everyone's backs. Either join in or ignore it. You do have a choice. Quit being so childish!

    • trix are for kids to "@my opinion"

      What's childish is that you have a problem with someone else's OPINION. Seems like you got a little too angry and bent out of shape just because someone expressed their opinion. Not everyone is a fan of the conversation, and although I think if people don't like it they should ignore, when 90% of the article is your commentary, well I think that's what this guy was voicing his opinion about. I don't really care because this article really isn't all that interesting anyway. Most of this blog is about seeing other people's off-topic useless commentary, anyway, so carry on.

    Yeah, you seem to be doing SO WELL without those "fairy tales" sitting here on Marquee Blogs. What an accomplishment!

    February 3, 2012 at 9:04 am | Report abuse |
    • my opinion

      These people are no different from the other "storytellers" that were around back in the day... the only difference is that these guys are on topic for the first one or two comments and then they just do their thing as opposed to never being on topic. The efforts to move them to e-mail by several individuals seems to have been in vain, or it could be because this is a new batch. I doubt that's the case. I think these people are the same ones who were here before, just different aliases.

      Sokman is different though, I do believe the last batch of storytellers were Christian.
