Isabella Rosselini’s “Bees”

Have you been watching Isabella Rosselini’s Green Porno series on the Sundance channel? These are bizarre short clips about insect mating. Here’s “Bees”:

Everything Isabella does is cool. Right?

What’s your favorite Isabella moment? Blue Velvet? Playing Jack’s demented ex-wife on 30 Rock? Her guest spot on Friends? The movie where she has the glass leg filled with beer?

Alec Baldwin makes fun of Joaquin Phoenix

If you’ve seen Joaquin Phoenix‘s weird appearance on Late Show With David Letterman this week, you might find it funny that comic mastermind Alec Baldwin mocked him on The Conan O’ Brien Show last night.

Watch it here.

Also, last night’s 30 Rock ruled, right? Best episode of the season.

Whatever Alec’s selling, I’m buying

Here’s Alec Baldwin for Hulu – and it’s hilarious:

Is it selling out if the product is free?

Don’t forget: Steve Martin on ’30 Rock’ tonight

Get it while you can: the ’30 Rock’ premiere

I don’t know why or for how long, but the the New York Observer is reporting that the much anticipated 30 Rock Season 3 premiere – scheduled for October 30 – is available right not on NBC.com and Hulu.com.

Maybe because Tina Fey is the most important person in the world? I’m gonna wait to see it on TV next week. DON’T TELL ME WHAT HAPPENS, damn bloggers.

Tina Fey: If Palin wins, “I’m done”

Tina Fey has been garnering big laughs with her terrific Sarah Palin sketches on Saturday Night Live, but Fey’s got her own show to worry about now.

With 30 Rock‘s season premiere the week before the presidential election, Fey has vowed to the New York Daily News that if the McCain-Palin ticket wins, she can’t continue the bit:

“We’re gonna take it week by week. If she wins, I’m done. I can’t do that for four years,” Fey told the magazine. “And by ‘I’m done,’ I mean I’m leaving Earth.”

You and me both, sister.

Alec Baldwin: ‘Why me?’ in the New Yorker

There are so many reasons to love Alec Baldwin. He’s smart, he’s sexy, he’s a great actor and hilariously funny – watch one episode of 30 Rock and try not to laugh out loud, especially in scenes like this one, which I still refer to as “the funniest three minutes of television ever”:

Not to mention Alec’s many hilarious turns as guest host of Saturday Night Live. I’ve been a fan since Beetlejuice in the late 1980s.

It’s interesting to note that Alec’s a vegetarian and an animal activist, proving underneath all that hot-headed cynicism, he’s a softy who gets it.

I don’t know what went down between Alec and ex-wife Kim Basinger. Or what happened to instigate that infamous phone rant to his kid. But, if you were shocked by that, you should have spent a weekend at my family home. I would have happily swapped some of the inappropriate epithets my parents and I traded for just one “thoughtless little pig.” (What can I say? My family let it all hang out.)

Anyway, Alec is profiled with a lengthy interview in this month’s New Yorker. You can read it here. It’s a fascinating study of a restless and creative man at mid-life. Alec rhapsodizes on careers he might have had, speculates on what the future holds. He recalls his father’s strict discipline, and, naturally, he discussed his new book chronicling his intense and long legal fight with Basinger. (There had to be some reason press-hating Alec endured an interview). A great read.

I know Alec polarizes people, so whether you love the guy or think he’s an arrogant blowhard, let me know your thoughts.
