Last week, Sam and Dean broke up the band, right? This week… the band's still broken up. And these guys seriously need to put on their Big Girl Panties and man up so they can stop the Apocalypse, damn it! I'm over the Angst — let's get these guys back together so they can kick ass and take names. But we're not quite there yet.
This week, Sam and his Ginormous Shoulders wake up shirtlessly (that's a word, shuddup) in a hotel room not quite alone. Jess (Adrianne Palicki) is hanging out on his bed, complete with White Nightgown of Doooom. With no mention of why the hell she was standing on that streetcorner at the end of 'Bloody Mary' (thanks, Kripke… jeeze), she proceeds to lay the guilt trip on Sam by telling him that whatever he's feeling is deep down inside of him and he can't change who he is. »

Chicago – Perhaps you’ve seen the clever commercials for “Guitar Hero 5,” in which a dozen or so hot women dance around with plastic guitars and Hugh Hefner extols the virtues of “variety”? There has arguably never been more truth in advertising. Like a roomful of Playboy Playmates, “Guitar Hero 5” gives fans all the variety they could ask for, but truly falling in love with any individual part of the title is a little more difficult.
Video Game Rating: 3.5/5.0 Maybe it’s simply a byproduct of the international love affair with music games sort of fizzling out, but my response to “Guitar Hero 5” is that the title is exactly what I expected it to be - no more and no less. The bang-for-your-buck approach to the game is unassailable as the experience is simply enormous with dozens of songs, challenges, and multi-player possibilities, but is more always better?

Clay Aiken has admitted that he is not a fan of Adam Lambert. The former American Idol contestant said that listening to this season's runner-up made him think that his "ears would bleed", Access Hollywood reports. "I happened to turn it on during the minute that Adam Lambert was singing 'Ring Of Fire'...Contrived, awful and slightly frightening," Aiken wrote on his website. The singer went on to say that though he only saw Lambert perform on once occasion, seeing more of him wouldn't have changed his mind. "I wasn't really a fan and found myself surprised whenever folks told me that they liked him. Granted, I never saw another performance (and many folks who I trust said he was great) (more) »
