The Walking Demi!

The Walking Demi MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

How exciting to watch the latest celebrity "very public nervous breakdown" occur; a little surprising that it was Demi Moore, who seemed to have her shinola together pretty well.

Sure her B.C./A.D. or May/December romance seemed to have a shelf life; let's face it, you can only reupholster your Gucci bags so many times before you need a new place for your junk. Don't get me wrong, I wanted to see Demi and Ashton work as much as the next sucker for the worst case scenario, but don't point your gnarled, old, Judge Judy finger at me if I can't help but experience a little schadenfreude at the demise of yet another failed Hollywood Fairy tale (or 2-year contract as I like to think of them!). I liked St. Elmo's Fire, but I liked...um...that one famous movie with Ashton, too!

VALCANDI MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

As an artist since childhood, I was always tortured by little girls to "draw things for them," usually unicorns or flowers, every boy's fantasy art subject - NOT! Although, I suppose drawing beats the crap out of learning geometry. Who gives two toots where Nigeria is anyway, right?

BHroundupBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

To say that the second season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills proved to be tumultuous is like saying the ladies may or may not have had some plastic surgery here and there.

Camille is divorced from Frasier. She dodged a bullet, if you ask me. He looked a little koo koo for Cocoa Puffs at the Golden Globes. I hope she got half of Frasier's scratch- although, most of his coins are probably tied up in alimony.

PANSEXUAL MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

After a brief holiday, Pan Am made its return to ABC two weeks ago. Inside sources said the series went under a bit of a much needed face lift, and it shows. Luckily, it's like good plastic surgery- like when someone gets Restalin and you don't even notice, but damn they look good! Speaking of plastic surgery, and I'm not saying she had any as anyone who knows me knows I would NEVER speak against Miss Ricci, Christina looks more beautiful than ever! Maybe it's her bangs? Don't get me wrong, I love her big, round, gorgeous, haunted, baby doll forehead, but I find the bangs uber chic.

SUPERBETTYBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

"National treasure" is a term oft touted about casually, yet in Betty White's case, it's true. Talented, hilarious, beautiful, and heart warming, Betty truly is a national treasure.


NBC aired a 90th birthday party with an impressive line-up of stars to roast/praise Betty and tell why she is important to them. This is why she's important to me:

 

Avenging SpiderManBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

Joe Madureira's art would be enough to make me read the Sears catalogue, so I was pleased as sucker punch to hear of the new Avenging Spider-Man series from Marvel. Conceptually, a little confusing. Clearly a Spider-Man book, as the Avengers only appear peripherally (and, even I couldn't help but drool over his Spider-Woman). An obvious ploy from Marvel to make it an Avengers and Spidey book, two of their biggest franchises both with movies coming out this summer and with art by one of the most popular artists going. Who can blame them for wanting to make a coin in this crap economy?

 

ReductiveBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

It seems as if the world at large is clamoring for a war between Madonna and Lady Gaga, and after calling Gaga's music "reductive" during her 20/20 interview, the world at large just may have gotten their wish.

All my reader - I mean readers - know that I am a huge Lady Gaga fan, having created a Going Gaga! Lady Gaga tribute comic and also contributing to Bluewater Productions' The Fame line Lady Gaga biocomic. It should come as no surprise that I am a bigger Madonna fan. I was even maliciously referred to as "That Madonna freak" in high school. Don't cry for me, Argentina; I'm sure those cretins will come to a bad end.

 

Joyful Noise MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

Jesus, save me.

Well, hello, Dolly. Well, hello, Dolly - it's so nice to have you back where you belong. It's been 19 years since Dolly Parton has appeared on film, and Joyful Noise marks her triumphant return to the silver screen, and I couldn't be more thrilled.


9 to 5 was the first 45 record I ever owned (If you don't know what a 45 is, kiddies, do grandma a favor and look it up.), and I fell in love with Dolly instantly. With an angelic voice that sounds like a marshmallow soaked in honey, a platinum blonde wig halfway to heaven, and two ginormous pumped up ti- er... um lips, what's not to love?

Golden Globes MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy

 

I'm not sure what the proper way is to describe The Golden Globes awards show, but I think Oscar's red-headed step child evokes the right idea.

The Globes are an all-over-the-place popularity contest, whose outcome is largely based upon who kisses enough Foreign Press ass and/or sends the most expensive gift bags during award show campaigning.

The Amazon Prince

 

Amazon Prince MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy


A couple of weeks ago, DC finally released the controversial Elseworld's Finest 100-Page Giant. It was supposed to come out years ago and was recalled and destroyed based on some controversial subject matter. About 80 copies survived, making it an instant collector's item, lessened, I suppose, by its subsequent release. I guess Batman wearing nothing more than a cowl and Infant Superman's babysitter letting him play in the microwave weren't the images DC wanted to present at the time. Now, in the age of Casey Anthony and assassin Obama, I suppose it's tame in comparison.
