Go To

And then there was the time that she performed
when nobody called for more
And soon everytime she stepped into the light
They really let her know the score
But she dreamed of the times when she sang her songs
And everybody cried for more
When all she had to do was step into the light
For everyone to start to roar
And all the people cried: "You're the one we've waited for!"
Genesis, "Duchess"

"Can I have your autograph?"
He said to the fat blonde actress

Heavy rings on fingers wave
Another star denies the grave
See the nowhere crowd cry the nowhere tears of honor
Like twisted vines that grow
Hide and swallow mansions whole
And dim the light of an already faded prima donna
Metallica, "The Memory Remains"

Lorne: These are very pretty people I'm talking about here, Wes. Four of them getting in shape for Young Guns III.

I have a theory: If you took Lindsay Lohan and put her in the machine from David Cronenberg’s The Fly for 25 years with 12 Denny’s Lumberjack Slams, a carton of Marlboro Reds, a handful of quaaludes, and a laserdisc copy of Battlefield Earth, you’d get Kirstie Alley. Think about it.

We could include the emoticon bukkake that is Tila Tequila's Twitter feed every single year. Bret Easton Ellis could write 900 pages about it. No one else combines the qualities of being talentless and a has-been quite like this woman. No one else is so clearly living in a paranoid fantasy dreamscape where tweets like this mean something: "Did u miss me too?? Hehe #TilaArmyWorldWide #TilaArmySoldiers #TilaArmy4Life!"

You always do this! You always go on about the old days, how you terrorized the entire city, and how you're a much better criminal than all the other lunatics in this place! Well, I've got news for you, Karl: no one cares! No one cares about you! No one even remembers you! The Joker, The Riddler, Two-Face... everyone knows of them, but Dr. Death? More like Doctor Who! Get over yourself, Karl! You're a loser, a has-been! Sure, you terrorized the entire city... eight years ago! I doubt even Batman remembers you now!
Dr. Jeremiah Arkham to Dr. Death, Arkham Patient Sessions
