All the world has Monica Keena fever right now. I mean did you see "Night of the Demons"? Action! And now she's been cast as a cult member in "Manson Girls" along with Laura Harring, Patti D'Arbanville, Estella Warren and Stella Maeve. Who's excited now?

Why the hell are people still talking to Joss Whedon about the freakin' "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" remake?

Wait seriously, this worked? A man in Missouri has been acquitted of a DWI charge after he claimed to have gotten drunk to keep warm after his car lost control on an icy road.
