Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me–Her Friends

Whomp whomp. I thought this book would be so funny and full of real big lies that she’s told each of them. (Sounds about right, right? What you would suspect was [and IS] on the dust jacket.) Unfortunately, most of this was just them sticking their head up her butt and giving a big smooch.Continue reading “Lies that Chelsea Handler Told Me–Her Friends”

Bossypants–Tina Fey

Mama needed to read this book after reading Life of Pi. (I’m Mama, in case you didn’t catch that.) I love biographies. I especially love biographies that make you laugh your ass off and are clearly written by the actual person and not them and so-and-so, their “helper”, “editor”, or “assistant”. Whatever the hell theyContinue reading “Bossypants–Tina Fey”

Medium Raw–Anthony Bourdain

Whomp. Whomp.     That’s pretty much the noise I would associate with this book. Which breaks my heart and busts my balls at the same time. I’m a huge fan of Chef Bourdain. I watch his show, I’ve read his other books and I’ve taken what he’s said to heart about what it means toContinue reading “Medium Raw–Anthony Bourdain”

Booky Wook 2: This Time It’s Personal–Russell Brand

Obviously this is his second book he’s written about his life, and I won’t lie, I liked the first one better. Probably because it was fresh and his stories seemed to have more of a purpose then.    For awhile during this book he just sorts of goes off the deep end and rants andContinue reading “Booky Wook 2: This Time It’s Personal–Russell Brand”

Unbearable Lightness–Portia de Rossi

We all know Portia De Rossi. We all know that she’s a gorgeous actress with a head of hair that we would all kill for. (Or at least, I would.) She’s been in stuff like Ally McBeal and Arrested Development. She’s gay. She’s married to Ellen.  And she used to be anorexic.  Lowest weight sheContinue reading “Unbearable Lightness–Portia de Rossi”

Elvis: My Best Man–George Klein with Chuck Crisafulli

I’ll start by stating the obvious: I’m a huge Elvis fan. I dig his music, I watch his movies, and I even have a cookbook of his favourite foods.  Which is why when my friend gave me this book for my birthday that I decided to give it its fair shake even though I’ve alreadyContinue reading “Elvis: My Best Man–George Klein with Chuck Crisafulli”

You’ll Never Blue Ball in This Town Again–Heather McDonald

This book gave me a migraine. I literally could not put it down, I devoured it in a day it was so funny! The only reason it gave me a headache was because I didn’t leave my bed all day and read it cover to cover and apparently reading a book for that long isContinue reading “You’ll Never Blue Ball in This Town Again–Heather McDonald”

Shootin’ the Shit With Kevin Smith: The Best of Smodcast—Kevin Smith with Scott Mosier

I’ve listened to the podcasts, or smodcasts if you will, and these two guys are beyond funny. And disturbed. Only read this if you have a dee-sgusting sense of humour and can withstand reading stories about things like anal fissures. Because if you can’t stomach that, then you won’t even remotely appreciate the hilarity theseContinue reading “Shootin’ the Shit With Kevin Smith: The Best of Smodcast—Kevin Smith with Scott Mosier”

My Booky Wook: Russell Brand

This man is a dirty bird and I looooove it! This is all about his life, obviously since the theme this week is biographies. He goes on about how he grew up (a chubby mama’s boy), and how he conquered drugs, had a load of sex, fell in love with tons of girls and howContinue reading “My Booky Wook: Russell Brand”

Kitchen Confidential–Anthony Bourdain

This brass mother effer is hilarious. If you are in any sort of cooking circle then you have heard of this book. He writes about his life and the behind the scenes of working in a kitchen. He even gives some helpful hints and recipes. Just youtube his current show ‘No Reservations’ and you’ll seeContinue reading “Kitchen Confidential–Anthony Bourdain”
