Weekly Trashing: Miley Cyrus doesn’t want to come back down from this cloud. She ought to take it easy.

If you’ve seen the video of Miley Cyrus smoking Salvia on her 18th birthday then you’ll get the musical references. Which midwest classic rock radio DJ was picking music for that party? I thought they were in Los Angeles? Was everyone else there with the blurry faces 35 years old or something? I’m not saying I don’t have both songs in my iTunes but I’m guessing all they listened to the rest of the night was Sublime. Amateurs.

Ok so you know how someone always has to ruin it for everybody else? Well in this case we know exactly who to blame.

It seems a California Assemblyman (I’m not even going to say his name because I don’t want to give another fevered ego the satisfaction of added publicity) wants to ‘fire up‘ new legislation to ban the drug Salvia. And according to a completely unscientific and uninformed poll on :ugh:, Tmz, (barf) 59% of people uninformed douchebags agree with him.  Does the American public get an erection on making up pointless laws that will do more harm than good? Cause you know what gives me an erection? Seeing celebrities fucked up on drugs. Why you gotta be a bonerkill, America? We already failed to legalize pot in what is supposed to be the most laid-back state of the union. I guess it’s up to you Oregon and Washington, California finally got too expensive for hippies to live there anymore. But besides being relatively harmless, and certainly non-lethal, Salvia to most people is a horribly mind-warping experience when used in the wrong setting (like being recorded at a shitty party) and Miley Cyrus can’t even clear a bong like a champion. My diagnosis: She’s just an idiot and probably stoned on the pot.

Boners for Tim Burton’s “Alice” Production First Looks

Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland First Looks

Holy Goddamned Wow! This could have the potential to blow wads of crazy art juice all over Disney Digital 3-D glasses next March! Here are some production photos of Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway in the upcoming Tim Burton helmed “Alice in Wonderland” live-action flick.

Alice in Wonderland 18 Rows X 18 Columns

My good friend Duck pointed me towards this beautiful visual substitute for 3 minutes of an Acid trip. It’s a mix of sounds and visuals from Alice in Wonderland arranged in a beautifully trippy way. I mean, Alice in Wonderland is already nuts but this is seriously inducing flashbacks. Click here to follow me down the Rabbit Hole. Below is the video and song in its singular form but I suggest you click the link and not plan on operating heavy machinery this evening.

Call me when her sex tape leaks.

MileyVanityFairI’m totally sickened that I’m even writing about this. Then again, I am pretty sick. And quite frankly, after the VaginaCam post, I needed a bit of fluff. Oooh, Miley Cyrus and her jailbait-y goodness! Her poor parents, they seem to be rivaling the Lohans in the “selling out our kids at the risk of their dignity/sanity for a buck” contest. Actually, I don’t think said picture is really worth all the controversy.

Now, the risque ones she took of her and her friends that have been popping up on the internet left and right-those are naughty. In all fairness, what 15 year old girl didn’t take naughty pics with her friends? (or was that just me?) But then again, I wasn’t Disney’s cash cow at the time.

Many people in the public eye felt the need to weigh in on the situation-Bill O’Reilly, Ellen, the ladies from The View…I didn’t give a shit until Stephen Colbert said his piece on it. Oh Stephen Colbert, never again will you win a gem of a role like the closeted history teacher on Strangers With Candy. I miss that show. Best after-school special ever. Anywhoo, this pretty much sums up how I feel about it:

The cliffsnote’s version of Colbert’s viewpoint: Who gives a shit? Am I right? I guess it’s a little hypocritical that I am writing about it, a fault of mine, I admit it. But the poor girl, being a teenager is hard enough without the media scrutinizing every move you make, innocent or otherwise. Oh wait, she’s worth a billion dollars, therefore I am physically unable to have sympathy for her.

Oh yeah, here you go, sickos. You know you want to.

Ah, youth.

Disney buys me dinner for subjecting me to the “F” word… Family.

Warning! This blog contains unnecessary name dropping.

Red CrapetOne of absolutely very few perks of my job is that part of the company I work for designs for Disney and their flagship theatre, the El Capitan. Its a beautiful theatre at Hollywood and Highland next to Jimmy Kimmel and across from Grauman’s Chinese where before the shows instead of slides for plastic surgeons like most L.A. cinemas they have an organist playing the most ambidextrous versions of Disney tunes (utilizing all 4 limbs). When the feature is about to begin they lower him under the stage where I’m assuming he is prodded back into his cage to perfect his rendition of “It’s a small world after all” on Casiotron until he is needed to warm up the next High School Musical sequel premiere. I’m gonna get so many random hits on this page for posting those last few sentences. So one of the perks is that my co-workers and I get invited to fill seats for special events. The first time we got to be in the first domestic audience to see the final Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Jerry Bruckheimer gave a speech before the feature.

Much Ado About Nothing I’m not going to tell you what movie we were invited to tonight. I’d rather not incriminate myself. It was a premiere, it was 2 blocks from my house and we were offered passes; I don’t turn that down. Even though it was a … cringe, family movie. OH GOD IT BURNS! Ok so the movie was bad, to me, because i’m a too cool for school asshole who hates 90% of all children ever and despises anything that’s “Fun for the whole family!”. But I suppose if you had kids that were between 8 and 16 then you could take them to this and they would have a good time. Oh look a baby pig, oh they makin’ silly faces, hilarious! I laughed a couple times and mostly because of Donny Osmond. Yeah I might as well tell you the cast and let you IMDB it on your own. Notably Martin Lawrence, Raven-Symoné (the Cosby Kid from when Rudy got too old to be the cute one), Will Sasso (MADtv’s giant), Kym Whitley (from that episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm where Larry picks up the Hooker so he could use the carpool lane to Dodger’s Stadium), Jessica St. Clair (gorgeous blonde from Best Week Ever) and a couple Sopranos-related Italian stereotypes.

Tom Everett Scott Will Sasso

But perhaps more importantly I met TOM EVERETT SCOTT on the red carpet! I guess it’s only important to me because That Thing You Do! is my favorite movie. Yeah you can take away all of my cred right now (as if I had any). What can I say, I love good fake band movies. That makes an even 2 of 4 of the Wonders that I’ve met so far.

So the best part of the night was of course the after party. There is so much nonsensical hoo-hah for these movies that its kind of a slap in the face to all of the really amazing movies that are made with absolutely no budget and aren’t very well received and have tiny premieres if any at all. But I enjoyed the free booze and Wolfgang Puck catering that this party had to offer. The highlights of our celebustalking besides the stars of the film were brushes with Home Run Record Holder* Barry Bonds, Random Disney-owned celebs that I had no idea who they were, some duder from Nick Cannon’s Wild N’ Out and Abigail Breslin (Little Miss Sunshine). Everyone but Barry Bonds was smaller than I’d imagined. He and Guy “Shades” Patterson were both pretty tall. Martin is about 5′ 5″ but his bodyguards were 6′ 3″ and 250 lbs so we didn’t fuck with him. He looks great! I heard that Raven is loaded (Theres a teen vogue in the can at work for some reason) but she didn’t project that air of celebrity/ego that radiates off of some famous people. She seemed very non-diva (actually kinda self-conscious in a way). Well I’m not sure if there is anything else to say. Now that I read it back, i’m not sure that any of ths was very interesting to begin with. Well feel free to email admin@avanttrash.com and invite me to your premiere. Especially if its for a better movie.
