Get a load of these two.
Later this year, Will Ferrell—currently promoting his b-ball comedy “Semi-Pro”—will reunite with “Talladega Nights” co-star John C. Reilly in “Step Brothers.” The pair will play overgrown man-children whose single parents get married.
Remember when Chace Crawford totally demonstrated how divorce was bad for the planet? Well, blended families? They’re grrreat! (Sorry.) Larger households share resources and that’s good for the environment. (This also serves as a good mantra when feuding with roommates.)
Argyle sweaters vests? Greener than they’re full-sleeved brethren. Actually, we have no idea.

After, of course, you’ve enjoyed some of our hilarity.
A while back we wrote about a new type of coal burning power plant that was able to sequester carbon and bury it safely underground. Construction was about to break ground in Illinois, but it’s not happening anymore.
“Too expensive.” Classic, Dubya! His Department of Energy put the kibosh on the project because new estimates put the price tag at $1.8 billion—up from $1.3 billion. Please, that’s not even a day in Iraq.
Baby steps. That’s kind of how we view this project—symbolic in so many ways. Think about the first time you tried to make brownies. They probably weren’t as good as Padma’s, but they were okay and somewhat effective nonetheless. The second time around? You were a pro. Just some food for thought (the power plant you wastoids) before you hit the polls.

Wow, we didn’t think anyone did anything but watch the Superbowl all weekend. Didn’t your pre-gaming start on Friday? Ours did. Our post-gaming is going pretty strong now, too. Anyone got an aspirin?
Turns out, though, that a lot of kids skipped the Patriots v. Giants to see Hannah Montana v. The World, and, uh… Hannah won. Her new movie, Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour, set a record for a Superbowl Weekend premier, raking in $30 Million. Hey Miley, can we be BFF’s?
As long as Billy Ray Cyrus’s favorie daughter is taking her achey-brakey heart worldwide and making all the young ladies crazy for striped leggings, she might as well encourage them to buy hose sustainably. For example, Top Shop has tights in Organic Cotton now. Stay close, maybe they’ll add Organic Leg Warmers next? Hannah fans can hope!

A couple of quickies before the Giants beat the Patriots…
When Beanstockd opens its big fat yapper, things happen. We write about Barack Obama; he becomes the first minority to win a Presidential primary. We say end the strike; THE STRIKE ENDS! Well, that’s what the Hollywood Reporter is saying.
It’s too bad it couldn’t have happened sooner. Ryan Seacrest has no idea what he’s talking about on the Super Bowl pre-show. We know the Super Bowl is more than just a sporting event, but it is a sporting event. Please just say it already. SEACREST OUT!
PAULA IN! Yea, right. She gets points for waving her freak flag, but that’s about it. Fox is really embarrassing right now.
JUNK FOOD! Right now, at the Beanstockd Super Bowl party, we’re enjoying a wide array of organic snacks from Whole Foods! Okay, we’re lying. We’re not “enjoying” any snacks that don’t have a “proof.” Excuse me? What do you mean, “Just because we bought the Bud Light and Doritos at Whole Foods, it doesn’t mean they’re organic?” Whatever, at least we’re going to recycle all of these cans. And by recycle, we mean give them to the homeless guy that lives down the street.

While other candidates have been reduced to name-dropping (Reagan!), Barack Obama picked up endorsements from the first family of Democratic politics. Last week, JFK’s daughter Caroline endorsed Barack in The Times. A day later, Ted Kennedy hitched his wagon to the Obama campaign.
That’s great for Barack, but the political name game should be a two-way street. Last we checked Uncle Ted was still a Senator. After paying plenty of homage to renewable energy during his career, he’s been a major road block of the Cape Wind Project. He basically said “not in my backyard” to 130 turbines in Nantucket Sound claiming they’d hurt tourism and property value. Nice. They’d be five miles out and provide three quarters of the Cape and Islands’ electricity needs.
This type of bulls**t goes on daily in Washington. During his entire campaign, Obama has spoken about getting rid of special interests. Here, Teddy’s interests are quite special: the view from his compound in Hyannis. Your move, Barack.
Update: The Caroline Kennedy piece finally dropped off the most emailed list. Shamu is safe. The Cape Wind Project cleared a big hurdle—without the support of Senator Kennedy. Better get on board, Uncle Ted!

Either everyone in Hollywood has ADD or Adderall is the latest ‘it’ diet. Or both.
Analysts were right when they said most trends are picked up from hyperactive kindergarteners and slutty preteens (think rhinestone barrettes, leggings, Limited Too written across the seat of your pants). The latest trend that Hollywood has adopted from the youth of the nation is Adderall, the wonderpill extraordinaire.
Nicole Richie and Britney Spears take Adderall for their “chronic ADD”. We buy it, but they’re definitely not overlooking the lightning speed emaciation and laserlike focus that comes with the package. In fact, it seems that the loyal Sundancers making the pilgrimage to Park City Utah will drinketh from the sweet nectar of cognitive enhancers. The town is currently overrun with overprescribed celebs ready to get their hands on swag bags — all filled with green goodies, of course. This year Sundance has gone eco-crazy on a mission to educate filmmakers and the media about reducing their carbon footprint, making the festival one of the most progressive celeb events this year.
Wonder if celebs’ll go so far as to power through the festivities with the help of some green addy alternative… perhaps ginkgo biloba laced cocaine?
