The Roid Over

Listening to Dan Patrick interview Brian Cashman on ESPN Radio today, and George's whipping boy brought up a good point: why has the media stirred up such a controversy over Jason Giambi when Sheff is the one that admitted he loaded up the elephant growth hormones?

The Incredible Shrinking 1st Baseman supposedly copped to roiding up in his testimony before a grand jury in the BALCO case, but since those docs are sealed, the only evidence we have is an anonymous source in the San Francisco Chronicle. Hardly enough to hang the man, if you ask me. Compound that with his press conference at Yankee Stadium yesterday, where he never once let the word steroid slip out of his mouth, and you may as well be trying to prove that the Tyrannosaurus Rex was pink with blue polka-dots.

My guess? It's because Sheff's Chefs don't sell editions of the New York Post (unless his wife is involved in a sex scandal with R. Kelly).

Brit's Wedding, Part Deux

Here are the rest of them. I especially like the "Mrs Federline" picture - it provides just the right touch of white trashiness to the proceedings.

Declaration of Marriage

I thought their wedding was informal?

PENCK

This is one indescribably sexy phone - stainless steel, amazing screen graphics, and stereo speakers for listening to the music you bring along thanks to the SD slot. It's too bad that it will probably never see an American 3G network. Designed by Makoto Saito at KDDI.

The Name Of This Blog Is Peak Hours

If you're in NYC, Marc Spitz's new play The Name of This Play is Talking Heads will be running Thursdays at Under St. Marks, starting March 3rd and ending March 26th.

"The Name of This Play is Talking Heads skewers the vapidity of music punditry on networks like MTV and VH-1. Talking Heads takes place backstage at your garden variety music channel where an innocuous music journalist for a reputable industry magazine prepares to make his first appearance on a show of this nature. In this case it is the Top 100 Most Rockatrocious Moments in History When he witnesses how the obligatory comedian taping his segment is being force fed material and told what to say, he is shocked that these experts were not only amateurs, but they had no insight or integrity at all. When he decides to rail against the system the results may have fatal consequences!"

Tickets are only $15 at smarttix.com, so there's no reason every performance shouldn't be packed. Marc is a brilliant writer - your life will be better for having seen it.

Death Metal

Apparently, suing 12 year olds and broke college students (I hear you, NYU) isn't as fun as it used to be, so the Righteous Indignation Association of America has decided to turn its lawyers loose on dead grandmothers. I can remember when I was little, and my granny would download Perry Como over the party line - I guess those days are over. Sigh.
