Anderson Cooper

Anderson Cooper gave his show last night from his hotel room in an undisclosed location in Cairo — claiming that it no longer felt safe for him and his crew to film from the streets. It's very saddening to hear that things are still so violent in Cairo. Yet I can't help but feel a little impressed by what a badass Anderson is.  

On the subject of badasses, the new Old Spice commercial has been released into the world, into the hands of a sixteen-year old boy. It's part of Old Spice's new viral marketing plan. The kid was chosen based on the success of his Old Spice parody video — which is below. 

Like many Americans, you're probably heading to a Super Bowl party this weekend. And like many of us, you might not really give a shit who wins. Fortunately, these kind folks have made a flow chart to help you out. 

And finally, this is legitimately crazy: seven people who have sold their bodies to win Super Bowl tickets. These are some of the wildest stories ever.

The Coop is too scared to leave his room? Why? Is mommy going to spank him and take away his toys? jesus Christ, CNN is ALWAYS late to the game, if they're even in it at this late stage. Get the fuck out of your room, you chickenshit, and get down and dirty with the real journalists from al Jazeera who have been suffering indignities for eleven days now. Hello, room service? I'll have a toasted BLT delivered by a nice, shiny young man, thank you very much.

1. Perhaps while he's sequstered, Mr Cooper might enjoy watching "The year of living dangerously". 2. He may have the look, but I would have opted for someone with better diction. 3. Since the crucial last question assumes that one has a wife, it's going to be hard for a lot of folks to answer. 4. You have to make the best out of what you have, especially in this economy.

What a wuss! Christiane Amanpour is out there getting harassed and stil delivering the news. Cooper is right not to ask his crew to risk their safety, but he can be out there with a hand cam getting the news.
