Nous attendons avec belle ensemble, non?




We predicted a JLo comeback and here….she….comes!

Gobble, gobble!

Making sure to toot our own horn when the opportunity presents itself, The Island is taking pride in the fact that back in JANUARY, we called the JLo comeback and warned y’all about the impending world domination by Jenny From The Block.

Oh, you...!

Along with predicting another Aniston movie bomb (came true), more jail time for LiLo (duh!) and the fashion craze dubbed “Puri’tans” (give it time!) we do pretty well here in seeing and commenting on trends that are about to smack us all upside the head.

Ēadig, þec tō mētenne!

JLo signed onto American Idol for $12 million this week. Rumor has it that she wanted $18 million plus a movie deal with FOX. After getting their reply of “Go F Yourself”, JLo accepted the network’s offer and took the paltry sum.

Everybody mad at the rocks that I wear 😦

Where is this all going, except to say that, back in January, we warned you that “before we all know it, she’ll sashay her way into every city, every town, every where!”?

It leads to our latest prediction:

The end of American Idol is near.

That and one of the Cusack’s will lose a leg to a shark in Summer 2011.

I'm not going to waste my time arguing with a man who's lining up to be a hot lunch.

It will be a spectacular crash!

And you heard it here first.

The 2012 London Olympic Games Mascots: Wenlock and Mandeville

May 19, 2010 1 comment

The Olympics. We either love them or we hate them and usually at the same time. But for 18 days during the Games it is all everyone talks about, how great the competition is, how amazing this game or that game was, how fascinating the athletes are.

The tone is different surrounding the Games during the off-years. Reports of mismanagement both in construction and politics, charts of lost profits both for the host country and the host network, and adverse affects on the environment provide a steady stream of negative publicity.

The same goes for the Olympic Mascot. There have been some whoppers out there that did not go over well with the public and rightfully so. That’s why when today the mascot, or in this case mascots, of the 2012 London Games was unveiled my first reaction was one of bewilderment. But after I did some searching and after reading a few negative articles without much follow through, especially one where the writer used the words “horrific” and “frightening” and then included a bunch of pictures and nothing else (Noah Love from the National Post, I am calling you out!) I found the origin story of Wenlock and Mandeville.

So please, I know it’s easy to pass judgement on looks alone and it can be fun to bash around a mascot, especially an Olympic one (hi, Izzy!), but watch the video. I hope you give them a chance.

Laugh it up, fuzzball.

That’s right, you heard it here first! Steve Guttenberg is due for a comeback. Soon his name will appear more and more in newspapers, tabloids and film credits. Then, BAM! we’re all gonna get Gutted! I, for one, can’t wait.

awww, shucks

*Thanks to one of The Island’s faithful followers for the Gutte premonition.

Island Update!

Stop what you're doing and read this RIGHT NOW

A while back, we here at the Island gave the original J.Lo a spot on Second Chance Island, which you can read here:

We said that she was coming back slowly and to watch out. Well here she is! This March, she will play a self-help expert on an episode of the CBS comedy “How I Met Your Mother”!

One of the highest rating comedies on TV today, seen by millions, and J.Lo somehow managed to wiggle her million dollar insured booty on the set, filmed in front of a live studio audience.

See? We told you. Before we all know it, she’ll sashay her way into every city, every town, every where!

Oh we go...


Second Chance Island: The original J.Lo

Ice Cube!!!!!!!

Remember when all the rage was J.Lo? You know, after Anaconda and before 7 years ago. It was all J.Lo, all the time. I ate a frozen burrito with a J.Lo seal of caloric approval on it! She was everywhere!

And then slowly, gradually, eventually, she wasn’t.

But now…something is happening. She’s getting mentioned more, pictures of her dot the landscape, attention is beginning to be paid again.

Could it be a media ploy? Could be. Maybe J.Lo has a great publicist. Maybe it’s J.Lo herself and her savvy business sense that is leading this return.


Let’s see what you got.


UPDATE: Jennifer Lopez will play a self-help expert on an episode of the CBS comedy “How I Met Your Mother” in March.

See? She’s coming back. Before we know it, she’ll be EVERYWHERE!
