Jamie Kennedy Talks NYE Disaster

KDOC’s awful local New Year’s Eve show went worldwide and host Jamie Kennedy explained to the New York Times that this was the plan from the start.

“It was totally supposed to be like that,” Kennedy said. “We wanted to make almost an anti-New Year’s Eve show, and the recipe calls for unexpected. We had an open bar for our guests, we were unrehearsed. It was not glamorous. We shot at the apex of craziness on Hollywood Boulevard on New Year’s Eve, in front of one of the most highly visible places, the Chinese Theater, and it was more like a block party type of feel.”

And it looks like you set your DVR for next year’s show as “the world’s worst New Year’s broadcast” could be back.

“Commerce Casino is already signed up for next year, they loved it,” Kennedy added. “And I got a text from Marilyn Manson that says he wants to do next year. And I want to get Wu-Tang Clan. I want to put people in that I like. I would like to do this again.”

Count me in.

Happy Effin’ New Year from KDOC

I hope you enjoyed the first (and likely) last KDOC New Year’s Eve show.

I stumbled across this shortly after midnight and was instantly hooked (sorry, Ryan and Carson) because the first words I heard was profanity.

Turns out that was the norm for this 90-minute clusterf*ck of a show hosted by Jamie Kennedy. This is a great six-minute recap that captures all the magic.

Ratings would be through the roof if KDOC re-aired this thing because the highlights have turned into viral hit.

Bel Air Graduates To Major Leagues — Gets Its First Film Festival

The swanky L.A. suburb of Bel Air will catch up to the big boys with its first film festival, running Nov. 14-19.

And because it’s a short film fest and it is Bel Air, screenings will take place in private homes with private screens and probably private guests.

“Film Fashion Night,” will kick off the festival, hosted by Genlux Magazine, with a celebration of fashion, film and art held at Lionsgate Vice Chairman and Director Mark Amin‘s exclusive private estate in Bel Air.

Screenings include Louise Dahl-Wolfe: Painting with Light, a short documentary about the famed photographer’s life and her “discovery” of actress Lauren Bacall, as well as short documentary James Gill Full Circle, an autobiographical look at American pop artist James Gill that chronicles his meteoric rise and sudden disappearance from the Hollywood scene and art world. Honorees for the evening include Anya Sarre, celebrity stylist and head fashion stylist for Entertainment Tonight, The Insider and ET on MTV; and Orian Williams, producer of the award-winning film Control and one of Variety’s “10 Producers to Watch.”

On Saturday, Nov. 15, a screening of the short documentary Carissa sponsored by Virgin Mobile and the Los Angeles Dodgers Dream Foundation, will be shown at the Motion Picture Academy Theater in Beverly Hills.

The film has won the Jury Prize in its category and six film festivals and is Executive Produced by Davis Guggenheim, Academy Award winning director of An Inconvenient Truth and Jamie McCourt, Owner & President of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Carissa Phelps and director David Sauvage. Carissa tells the story of a homeless 12-year-old in Fresno, who was forced into prostitution, but strived against all odds to eventually graduate from UCLA last year with a law degree and MBA.

Our Favorite Sentence of the Day

marryme07cover2.jpg“Last Christmas, they unknowingly got each other matching Glocks.”

This romantic string of words comes courtesy of the Squeeze OC “Marry Me” Contest winner story. The guy on the cover there is Matt, who won a diamond ring and a chance to publicly propose to his girlfriend Kelli.

Why did the couple give each other Glocks? Why is he posed on a Harley (Is a black hog the new white horse)? We had many questions, so we bugged Web editor Erlina Tulabut for the skinny. Here’s what she said:
