Roseanne Barr is Hitler

Roseanne Barr as HitlerI recognize that many celebrities are into the whole "controversy" thing in an effort to remain relevant, but Roseanne Barr took it one step further. She dressed up as a baking Hitler and I think her cookies are supposed to be Jews. The fact that she apparently did it for a Jewish magazine called Heeb makes me shake my head in wonder even more. Did someone there think this was a good idea, or were they just trying to create controversy?

Apparently, her photo did cause some controversy among the Jewish community, and Roseanne posted a response of her own on her blog. Uh, yeah. This is a move that makes about as much sense as singing "The Star Spangled Banner" off key at a sporting event, something else Ms. Barr has done in her sordid past. If the Jews do, in fact, run Hollywood, then Roseanne may have just blacklisted herself.

Stella stars present: American Schmidol

american schmidol stellaIf you're lucky enough to live in New York City and have an unusual sense of humor, you will totally dig this. Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, and David Wain are judging a parody of American Idol, called American Schmidol. They're teaming up with Heeb Magazine and JDUB Records for a "giant-screen karaoke competition" at the Bowery Ballroom on Monday, March 13. I can't figure out which one will be the Simon character. Any of them could pull it off.

If you're like me and you don't live in NYC, but you're missing Stella and you're wondering when it'll be back (Hello? Comedy Central?)*, you can get your David Wain fix on his website. He has put up a scan of an article in Tokion Magazine called "Writing Comedy", which features Wain and David Cross. Or, you can download the audio version of the interview here.

*Thanks to commenter, Matt, who pointed out that Stella is not getting a second season on Comedy Central (despite its title as one of the best TV shows of 2005 by EW magazine). The official Stella website confirms it.
