    Poonie, can you find Jian for us? He’s currently hiding somewhere in The Peanut Factory. Make sure to check his closet and under the bed.

    • Allan says:

      he’s easy to spot …

      and remember to send him out of the room with all the other peanuts when George talks about “adult” stuff

    Don’t you have to ask Lights’ permission, Poongirl? Since Cutthroat holds her career in the palm of her hand…

    If I told Jian I wanted him right now, do you think he’d drop Cutthroat for me ?

    Kelly’s going to the MTV Movie Awards tonight! Jian loves award shows, will he be watching and tweeting as usual? Or has Kelly scared him off Twitter for the rest of the weekend?

    Here’s Kel’s latest tweet :

  • PoonGirl says:

    LOL @ Jian not logging in to Twitter for a while every time Cutthroat tweets him ! That way, he can pretend he did not read it.

    I think I’m goning to Tweet Cutthroat and give her some advice. If you want to win Jian over, how better to do so then with materialistic goods ? For his birthday Kelly should get him a manscarf. Then everytime he drapes that soft cashmere manscarf around his throat he will think of her.

  • Anonymous says:

    I think that Jian is afraid of Kelly. Every time she tweets him, he logs off Twitter and doesn’t come back for a long time (for him). Case in point : It’s been 24 hours since his last tweet.

    That picture of Kelly on the bike is freakin’ hilarious! And notice how the other women that she’s riding with are all way younger than her? With Jian, it’s the same way. He’s always hanging around people that are younger than him. Which is a dumb thing to do for someone as obsessed with youth and image as he is, because it just makes him look that much older.

    Jian keeps claiming he’s a passionate guy. Well, you’ve met your match, Jian. Sometimes “passion” is exhausting (or just another word for people who like to argue alot & create drama wherever they go).

  • The maître d’ at Angelo’s says:

    Kelly is in the New York Times today, talking about her Sunday routine:
    I go to Angelo’™s, of course. I’™ve been going there since 1987. The maître d’™ is always rude to me, and I love him for it. He just finally stopped screaming at me because I think his granddaughter watches this show I’™m on. The angel hair pasta with garlic and tomato is amazing. You get a couple good wiseguy sightings while we’™re there. Then we go around the corner to Ferrara’™s. You’™ve got to do your part. You’™ve got to be the crazy New Yorker who goes there. How about the Feast? That makes ’œJersey Shore’ look tame.

  • Flirting With Disaster says:

    Kelly hasn’t had a man flirt with her since the Clinton administration, that’s why she’s all over Jian like brown on (brown) rice.

    Jian is playing a dangerous game; Kelly is “Fatal Attraction” material. At the very least, she’ll tear him and LIGHTS a new one in the press/on her show/in her next book if he doesn’t give her what she wants. She already seems to be getting agitated by him never publicly responding to any of her tweets on Twitter.

    If this goes bad, she’s gonna make Billy Bob Thornton look like a choirboy.

    Is this whole situation silencing Captain Lights? She hasn’t tweeted in more than 13 HOURS!!!! Is Kelly her kryptonite?

  • PoonGirl says:

    The narcisist in Jian probably loves that any woman is flying to be with him just for his Birthday. I think Jian usually starts flirtations with much younger women who probably don’t give much thought he is trying to get with them. But, with older Cutthroat, she probably takes it a lot more seriously.

    If she is flying all the way down here, she probably is thinking longterm, commitment, marriage, kids …

    P.S. I’m so happy I coined the name Cutthroat for Kelly, suits her to a T.

    I get the feeling Jian is in over his head, that Kelly is taking his flirting seriously & travelling all the way to Toronto for his B-Day. Good times.

    If Moxy Fruvous were a young Canadian band today, they wouldn’t be invited to be on Q. How ironic.

    They also wouldn’t get a record contract, have their videos played on MuchMusic or have any success beyond busking and Jian would have stayed in obscurity – where he belongs. But that’s all beside the point.

    Jian has taken a lot and given nothing back. He has a career now because of all of the help that he recieved back in the day when there was a lot more support for Canadian music acts and he is not returning the favour for the present day Canadian artist.

    But Karen Solie hasn’t been on “Q” because she’s not a celebrity….until now. She’s probably worthy of being on “Q” after winning this award. There’s room for Carol Burnett on “Q” (twice) but no room Canada’s poets.

    Jian only cares about Canadian art and artists when he’s benefiting from it. Give him money to host and he’ll care. Put him on the Board of Directors of a music fund so that he can hand money out to his client and friends and he’ll care.

    When lesser known Canadian artists are on Q it’s likely just tokenism to fulfill the CBC’s mandate. The treatment they get after the fact is very telling : Q rarely puts interviews with Canadian artists on their QTV YouTube page or on the BoldTV show and when they do it’s more often someone who is internationally famous or someone that has a connection to Jian like Q producer Kathryn Borel.

    Maybe Jian can do one of his opening monologues on the cultural importance of reality tv stars like Kelly, Whitney, Roxy, Snookie and last but not least, “the Situation”. Do they represent the dawn of a new kind of icon? The “iconic imbecile”? Is Jian at the forefront of a cultural movement or is he just a cheap fame whore lover?

  • Comfortably Numb says:

    Now that “Q” is being broadcast in the states, it will be interesting to watch become even MORE American and stray from the CBC’s mandate, which is:

    “…the programming provided by the Corporation should:
    be predominantly and distinctively Canadian, reflect Canada and its regions to national and regional audiences, while serving the special needs of those regions,
    actively contribute to the flow and exchange of cultural expression,
    be in English and in French, reflecting the different needs and circumstances of each official language community, including the particular needs and circumstances of English and French linguistic minorities,
    strive to be of equivalent quality in English and French,
    contribute to shared national consciousness and identity,
    be made available throughout Canada by the most appropriate and efficient means and as resources become available for the purpose, and
    reflect the multicultural and multiracial nature of Canada.”1

    Anyone else notice that Tea Makers comments are taking a long time to show up? Right now there’s one that shown on the right under “Recent comments: An Inconvenient Question” by Anonymous on at 9:18 pm” that when I click on it, it isn’t there (9:42 pm).

    Anyone else tired of the Tea Makers yellow colour scheme? The Truth Farm was much easier on the eyes……
