Celebrity Slam - Finely aged beef

It’s no secret that we love beef here at Celebrity Slam. The pettier and more childish, the better. We love it when famous people go after each other with thoughtless insults and disrespect, when they suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous ego hurled willy-nilly.

As you’re no doubt well aware, the best beef is hip-hop beef. These guys have always been able to stick the needle in, finding the softest, most vulnerable spots in which to jab their barbs. They’re good with words and unafraid to be mean – an ideal combo when it comes to generating beef.

But when you get the opportunity to experience some well-aged beef, beef that has been gently seasoned by years of simmering antipathy, well – that’s the good stuff.

Which brings us to 50 Cent and Ja Rule. That’s right – the greatest hip-hop beef of 2003 has returned after 15 years in all its idiotic mean-spirited glory.

Antarctic adventure – ‘The Stowaway’

What would you be willing to do to gain the opportunity to experience an adventure of a lifetime? What risks would you take to take part in something historic? How far would you go? Would you travel to the ends of the earth?

For Billy Gawronski, the answer to that last question was “Yes.”

Hm. So this is what hubris feels like.

My celebratory gloating following my triumph over Stella in the Wild Card round seems to have come back to give me a karmic bite on the behind. Our records for the Divisional Round were reversed – this time, it was Stella’s turn to go 3-1 and my turn to correctly pick just one single solitary game.

There’s something polarizing about the work of Aaron Sorkin. His writing can come off as a bit overly effusive and self-congratulatory – in a word, show-offy. His trademark “walk and talk” – which rose to prominence in his time on “The West Wing” and became even more overwhelming in subsequent projects like “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” and “The Newsroom” – can be engaging as hell, but you can definitely have too much of a good thing.

But as prolific as he has been as a writer, both on television and in the movies, he had never before sat in the director’s chair before taking on “Molly’s Game.” The film – adapted from Molly Bloom’s book of the same name by Sorkin himself – tells the story of a woman’s rise to prominence and fall from grace as her facilitation of exclusive private high-stakes poker games leads first to wealth and then to her arrest and subsequent court battle with the U.S. government.

New to view – 18 new shows for 2018

Remember when the fall television lineups were all that mattered?

It wasn't so long ago that that autumn offerings were the be-all and end-all of new TV. Shows that made their debuts in January were considered little more than filler, with the term “midseason replacement” taking on a derogatory tone.

However, as the ways in which we consume television have changed, so too have our attitudes regarding when shows join their respective lineups. Instead of an afterthought, this second season has become a viable entity in its own right, with loads of interesting programming arriving on your screens of choice.

Broadcast networks, premium and basic cable outlets, streaming services - everybody has something for the viewer looking for something new to consume this winter. If nothing else, it seems likely that all tastes - highbrow, lowbrow and everything in-between - will be addressed.

Have a look at some of the intriguing options that are en route.

Celebrity Slam - Marky Mark's money matters

One of the things we love doing in this space is to take famous people to task for their misdeeds. We enjoy scorning and deriding those in the celebrity sphere who say or do things that are terrible and/or stupid.

We REALLY enjoy it.
