Last-word lounge

Mansinthe: Marilyn Manson's own brand of absinthe, aptly called Mansinthe, is available for purchase in Switzerland. Mansinthe is not available in the United States, and no word is out yet on whether Manson sucks more or less after a bottle or two.
"What Perez Sez": The self-proclaimed Queen of All Media is staking his claim on the boob tube. The blogger now has his own weekly show on VH1, in which we find answers to questions we've asked ourselves for ages, such as "What is Hilary Duff's porn name?" The answer: Bubbles Tanglewilde.
"Good Night": This winning Kanye West and Mos Def collabo is plastered all over the hip-hop blogs. The song, paired with "Good Morning," would have made an excellent bookend for Graduation but 'Ye opted to only release the track on the overseas version. And the RIAA still can't understand why people download music illegally?
Chris Crocker: This human tragedy freaks out in his grandparent's basement, pleading for people to "LEAVE BRITNEY ALONE!" and becomes a YouTube pseudo-celebrity. Wearing a black lace bra, the cross-dressing Crocker made an appearance via iChat on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" last week, signaling the death rattle of his 15 minutes of fame.
Justin Timberlake: Step 1: Cut a hole in the box. Step 2: Put your junk in that box. Step 3: Perform the song on SNL ... and that's how you win an Emmy. Discard all those worthless Grammys, Justin, you are a somebody now!
Dennis Miller: The failed Monday Night Football announcer/conservative comedian rescheduled his IU performance for Feb. 2. This gives the IU student body nearly five months to study six-syllable words and obscure classical literature references before he arrives. Oh, yeah, you may want to brush up on the myth of global warming, too.
Seacrest sucks: The 59th annual Primetime Emmy Awards aired Sunday, Sept. 16 to dismal ratings. With 13.1 million viewers, this was the second smallest audience in Emmy history. Some might say these awards simply lack the glitz and glamour of more prestigious award shows like the Oscars or the Teen Choice Awards, but we blame host Ryan Seacrest. We blame him for 90 percent of what's wrong with the world.
