LAist Interview: Elena Crevello and Heidi Niedermeyer, Creators of ‘Shit People in L.A. Say’

LAist Interview: Elena Crevello and Heidi Niedermeyer, Creators of ‘Shit People in L.A. Say’

Last week, we posted a couple of videos that documented shit L.A. people say. One of those videos, by Elena Crevello and Heidi Niedermeyer, touched on some characteristics we (perhaps a little cringing-ly) recognized in ourselves: the urge to speak to dogs as if they are human children, the refusal to go west of Vermont, and the propensity to curse at other people from the safety of one’s own vehicle. more › View original post here: LAist Interview: Elena Crevello and Heidi Niedermeyer, Creators of ‘Shit People in L.A.

Clippers vs. Lakers: Which Team Has The Worst Fans? (VIDEO)

February 4, 2012

We all know the stereotypes. Hardcore Lakers fans light things on fire when the team wins a championship. Hardcore Clippers fans are perpetually depressed because they’ve never had a chance to destroy anything except their expectations. Here’s something they have in common: both groups get their own version of the “Sh*t People Say” meme, and neither come out smelling like roses. The Lakers are riding high on 16 league championships, so the fans on ” Stuff Laker Fans Say ,” are bombastic and entitled. They defend Kobe against rape accusations, express nostalgia for the Zen Master and shove a Lamar Odom jersey to the back of their closet. The money quotes: “Derek Fisher’s so old. RETIRE!” and “We should trade Luke Walton for…” anyone. WATCH : Just like the franchise and its fans, the ” Sh*t Clippers Fans Say ” video is a little pathetic because it’s so hopeful. The fan swings from unbridled optimism (“This is our year! We’ve got CP3!”) to fatalism (“This franchise is so cursed”). And, as true Clipper fandom requires, the video is shot through with a strong dose of hate for Kobe and all other “fakers.” WATCH : Of course, the tables could turn for both sets of fans this year. With a couple of power trades and a strong start to the season , the oft-maligned Los Angeles Clippers have transformed into “Lob City” — while the Lakers are looking old, tired and frustrated on the road . For the sake of the All-Star game, expect these two sets of cultish fans to come together for one night. Four of the Western Conference’s starters come from LA : Kobe Bryant and Andrew Bynum from the Lakers, and Chris Paul and Blake Griffin from the Clippers. But don’t expect the kumbayas to last for long; both teams are gunning for the playoffs, and only one can represent the West in the NBA finals.

Renée Zellweger Lists Connecticut Country Crib

January 31, 2012
Renée Zellweger Lists Connecticut Country Crib

SELLER: Renée Zellweger LOCATION: Pomfret, CT PRICE: $1,500,000 SIZE: 3,400 square feet (approximately, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms YOUR MAMAS NOTES: While snacking on some dry toast backed up with a stiff, mid-day gin & tonic pick-me-up Your Mama received an unexpected press release that announces Oscar-winning actress Renée Zellweger has listed her rural retreat in puny and purdy Pomfret, CT on the market with an asking price of $1,500,000. Miz Zellweger has been a bright light in Tinseltown for quite some time and is best known perhaps for her roles in Cold Mountain, Jerry Maguire, Chicago, Nurse Betty and the Bridget Jones’s Diary franchise and for her long list of high-profile man-friends and who include Jim Carrey, George Clooney, Jack White, Kenny Chesney–to whom she was married for about 8 minutes–Luke Perry, John Krasinski, André Balazs, Dan Abrams and, for about 2 years until their March 2011 bust up, Bradley Cooper who People magazine named as “The Sexiest Man Alive” for 2011. Anyhoo, property records show the sinewy and squinty-eyed movie star procured her pastoral Pomfret property in November 2004 for $1,320,000. The press release we received reveals Miz Zellweger acquired the 39 acre farmlette, located in the northeastern corner of Connecticut about 3.5 hours by car from Midtown Manhattan, as a “vacation retreat.” She renovated, updated and upgraded the property’s primary structures, which include a vintage main house, separate guest house, and fully detached recreation barn while retaining respect and admiration for the age and integrity of the antique structures. The actress also spent handsomely on extensive landscaping improvement that include various gardens, terraces and dry-stone walls that look as if they pre-date the late-18th century spread. The main house, a quirky and humble but dignified Federal-style Colonial built around 1770, measures around 3,400 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms that include a commodious (if casual) master suite with vaulted ceiling with heavy, exposed rough-hewn beams, private en suite facility on a dressing area with, as per press release, “an extensive suite of closets.” Visibly aged and pleasantly worn wide plank wood floors–either original or reclaimed–spread throughout the main lounging and entertaining areas that spoke off around the center stair hall and include a cozy formal living room with fireplace and an army of 9-over-9 pane sash windows, a formal dining room with fireplace and antique crystal chandelier, and a ebony-paneled library also with fireplace plus floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases. A fourth fireplace–this one with brick fireplace original built-in bread oven–warms the family room/media room and the well-equipped (and surprisingly over-sized) and natural light bright kitchen has custom white-painted cabinetry, butcher-block counter tops, high-grade commercial-style appliances, a massive center island lorded over by a heavy-duty pot rack laden with a cacophony of pots and pans that could easy ensnare a bouffant hair do and/or mentally incapacitate an elderly person if it were to fall unexpectedly from the white-painted wood-paneled ceiling. A sunny sun porch with pitched ceiling and original (or antique reclaimed) wide-plank wood floors looks out past the mature tree branches, through a mossy split-rail fence, down a gentle planted slope to a tree- and lawn-ringed amorphous swimming pool with wide flagstone coping. A separate guest house has a living room, bedroom, kitchenette and full bath while an antique barn located across the large gravel motor court from the main house has been re-purposed into an airy entertainment pavilion with soaring exposed wood vaulted ceiling, hardwood floors, a old-timey (but probably new-fanged) wood stove and hefty, rough-hewn posts that anchor the massive antique timbers that cross the interior of the capacious space. The high-profile but low-key Miz Zellweger has owned a number of other prominent properties that include a secluded ranch-style residence in the Hollywood Hills she bought in March 2000 for $1,875,000 from The Wallflowers front man Jakob Dylan and sold a few years later when she snatched up a 6,410 square foot mansion in a plum section of Los Angeles’ hoity toity Bel Air ‘hood that she owned only briefly and sold in July 2003 for $7,000,000 to Will & Grace alum Debra Messing. Most recently she sold a pair of rambling apartments–or a trio of contiguous units, depending on how one counts, that comprise about 5,000 square feet in a grand Beaux Arts townhouse building on the Upper East Side of Manhattan for a combined $7,950,000. As far as we know Miz Zellweger still owns a charming farmhouse in East Hampton, NY she acquired in April 2003 for $2,150,000. In early 2010 there were scads of rumors and reports Miz Zellweger and her then man-beau Bradley Cooper picked up a contemporary house in the Rustic Canyon area of Pacific Palisades but to be honest children, we don’t know anything about this house at this point…meaning it’s not clear if it was purchased by Miz Zellweger, Mister Cooper or if they bought it together, which we sort of doubt. We have no inside intel about whether or not Miz Zellweger plans to continue to lighten her real estate load or if she’ll hang on to her house in the Hamptons. listing photos: Coldwell Banker Previews International Read the original: Renée Zellweger Lists Connecticut Country Crib

PHOTOS: Stars Party All Week Ahead Of The Golden Globes

January 15, 2012

If you see your favorite stars sneaking a yawn or looking a bit fatigued during Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards, have some sympathy; it’s been a long week of partying for Hollywood. The Globes show has a long legacy of being a boozy, laid back affair catering to the biggest names in show business, going back to the Rat Pack’s takeover of the ceremony half a century ago. And as gold trophies, and the stars they lure to dinner engagements, have become big business, it’s resulted in two big developments: lavish parties being thrown to celebrate winners and influence voters; and a proliferation of a whole lot more award shows. This year, Hollywood’s finest has spent the week leading up to the Globes at no fewer than four awards shows (the People’s Choice, the Critics’ Choice, the AFI Awards and LA Film Critics’ Awards); major studio-thrown galas (including ones thrown by “The Artist” distributor The Weinstein Company, “Descendants” studio Fox Searchlight and “J. Edgar” backer Warner Bros.); and other fun get togethers that offer camaraderie, not statuettes (the BAFTA Tea Party, Independent Spirit Awards’ nominees brunch). The events offer the biggest names in show business the opportunity to catch up, hang out and pose for pictures that prove that they are just like their audience: owners of endless numbers of suits and gowns, and relentlessly beautiful.
