After today, it will be illegal in California to throw standard batteries (AA, AAA, C and D) into the garbage. [source]

How the state intends to regulate household battery recycling is beyond me.

It's like grape thievery at a supermarket.

My mother bought me a wind-up flashlight. While I appreciate the innovation of a flashlight that operates without batteries, I don't think I've ever purposely used a flashlight in my life.

I'm tempted to pawn it for a few rounds of Skee-Ball.

"USA Network has struck a deal to create a show based on the wildly successful extreme content online site eBaumsworld.

VH1 already airs an internet video clip show, and it stinks."

NBC is in talks with Carson Daly to emcee a series called Carson's Cyberhood, sort of an America's Funniest Web Videos.

Carson's Cyberhood? Leave it to television to completely emasculate web videos.

Speaking of wretched television trends…

VH1 has greenlighted a spin-off of "The Surreal Life" in which former housemates face off in challenges for a $100,000 prize.

I hear Joe Montana just signed on to be part of the next Surreal Life cast.

Alan Colmes on Hannity & Colmes [Monday] night on Fox News Channel said the Candice Michelle [GoDaddy] Super Bowl ad was his favorite.

As seen on Entertainment Weekly's website:

Okay, "funny Tom Bergeron quote" is an oxymoron.

He should host a web video show.
