Rosie’s Top Six

1 WANTING TO WORK FOR THE STRANGEST BOSS IN THE WORLD Either Brandy Exner thinks she’s going to have a career in porn or she’s already spent the millions she thinks she’ll make being the first to tell and the National Enquirer about Charlie Sheen’s fatal overdose. (Leader-Post)

3 LIAR LIAR, STEPHEN HARPER’S PANTS ON FIRE The problem with being a psychotic politician, as Stephen Harper appears to be, is that you always leave behind traces of your former psychotic life, as the CBC tells about how coalitions were peachy keen in Harper’s universe in 1999.

AND NOW YOUR MUSICAL MOMENT OF ZEN The Iron City Houserockers, from Pittsburgh, were one of those heartland rockers that mined the Bruce Springsteen/John Mellencamp territory in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Their best album was their second, Have a Good Time But Get Out Alive, released in 1980. This is the title track, from a reunion concert at the Pittsburgh Hard Rock Café in 2005.

  1. I think Brandy is nuts for wanting to work for or be associated with a man who has such a long history of violence against women.
    I mean the guy shot his fiancee, struck a UCLA student in the head because she refused to have sex with him, beat and threatened to kill his girlfriend, threw chairs at and threatened to kill his wife, and held a knife to his third (pretty sure it was his third) wife’s throat and threatened to kill her, among other allegations, c’mon.

  2. And yet the Leader-Post glides by all that and decides to portray him as a little scamp whose only transgression is “excessive partying and unusual behaviour.” Nice.

  3. Yeah. Charlie Sheen is a sad abusive bastard who needs institutional help. What a waste of skin and money.
