From Paul Levine...
WARREN BEATTY SHAGS 13,000 WOMEN: Okay, I exaggerate. According to Peter Biskind's book, "Star: How Warren Beatty Seduced America," the actor/director has bedded "12,775 women, give or take, a figure that does not include daytime quickies, drive-bys, casual gropings, stolen kisses and so on."
I'm not good at math (or multiple relationships), but a man would have to have sex with a different woman every day for 35 years to hit that number. And that, ladies and gentleman, would be problematic, even for the manly Mr. Beatty. Or, am I wrong, Jim Born?
I do recall Woody Allen's one-liner: "If I believed in reincarnation, I'd want to come back as Warren Beatty's fingertips."
MORE SCARY BOOK PUBLISHING PREDICTIONS: "Title count at the largest houses could drop by as much as fifty percent over the next five years." And how about this little nugget, related to success of vampire books? "Publishing houses will soon have entire departments devoted to developing books about the undead." Read it and weep in the Huffington Post's "Ten More Publishing Predictions"
READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL? If I drank a beer every time a Bud Lite commercial came on during the Bowl games, I'd look like Mark Mangino.
TOO MUCH FOOTBALL? You've overdosed on football when, after watching a four-hour game, you stick around to watch Sports Center so you can see the highlights of what you've just seen, and then when ESPN repeats the show, your ass is still planted in the Barcalounger. I'm talking to YOU, Jim Born.
WHO'S PLAYING? After seeing all their competing commercials, I thought the Fiesta Bowl was ATT vs. Verizon.
WHAT TO EAT WHILE WATCHING ALABAMA VS. TEXAS: Chocolate Bacon Peanut Bark. Here's Janet Rudolph's recipe.
My final thought for the holiday season: I'd drink egg nog year round if they sold it in the stores.
