Movie Review: Roadie

Despite what the title may depict, Roadie is not a film that involves the glamour of a rock and roll lifestyle (nor is it the 1980 film staring Meatloaf). In fact, it barely depicts rock and roll at all. Instead Roadie captures the chewed up and spat out product of the rock and roll industry in the form of the comically named, main protagonist, Jimmy Testegross.

Set in Queens, the movie centers around the thirty-something has-been who arrives home after being fired following a long and thankless stint as roadie for the real life band, Blue Oyster Cult. It is set over the course of twenty four hours and follows Jimmy coming to terms with the loss of his job in a manner that somewhat resembles the five stages of grief.

Andy Dick Arrested Again

The well-known comedian, Andy Dick, was arrested last night on drunk and disorderly charges. He was spotted intoxicated and supposedly belligerent in public outside of Marie Callender’s restaurant in Riverside County, California. He was taken in and booked for the charge, but quickly released on a $500 bail.

News of this incident comes on the heels of several other charges made against Dick. His alcoholism has proven to be a major problem in his life and earlier this year he vowed to make a sincere attempt at sobriety. However, he’s since been in trouble with the law under some questionable circumstances. On separate occasions he’s been taken to task over the alleged groping of a young girl and more recently, the groping of a bouncer and several male patrons at a bar in West Virginia.

Mariah Carey Gives Birth to Twins

Over the weekend, Mariah Carey gave birth today to two healthy babies. The twins, one girl and one boy, weighed in at 5 pounds and 3 ounces and 5 pounds and 6 ounces respectively and are doing extremely well. Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon are overjoyed, as the day was a celebration two-fold.

April 30th, the date of the twins’ birth, is also the couple’s wedding anniversary. Every year of their marriage the two renew their vows to make the day even more special. Now the day is an event that will be impossible to top!

True to tradition, though, they renewed their wedding vows at the hospital’s chapel the day after the twins were born. The couple has not said what they’ve named the twins, but the press, magazines, and gossip blogs will be on it the moment they do.

Jersey Shore’s Angelina Calls Off Engagement

In the shadow of the Royal Wedding today, a couple was split when Angelina Pivarnick of the Jersey Shore and fiancée David Kovacs called it quits. The couple had been engaged for only three months and fell under harsh media attention when Angelina became pregnant.

Today, Kovacs was the only one to comment on the split. Although the engagement itself had cynics calling it a bid for ratings, Kovacs seemed genuinely upset. From an interview with Radar Online he says:

“I’m going through a really tough time right now,” he said in an exclusive interview. “I have ended things with Angelina.”
He claimed that he went through her phone and saw texts from multiple guys.
“I got a text from a fire fighter who actually apologized for sleeping with Angelina saying he just found out she was engaged. … I actually found a pair of guy’s underwear in her car.”
