All stops pulled out in search for fugitive

View Larger Map Don’t speculate how he escaped, the authorities say ‘all stops are being pulled’ to rein in accused terror mastermind Mas Selamat Kastari. Says Channelnewsasia: “With the tight security presence, Singaporeans are generally confident this crisis will soon be resolved.” Add to that, “and the jams at the causeway will soon clear up”. At least now we know there’s an ISD detention centre in the vicinity of Whitley Road where they’re busy patching up the escape hatch in the toilet. Meanwhile, ‘all stops being pulled’ should be taken to mean that all agencies that are capable of helping are on the job: SCDF, SPF, SAF, SMRT, MHA, MOM and MCYS. Security guards at condominiums, I hope, will also be doing more than waving you past the guardhouse as long as you mutter your “friend’s apartment number” as your entry password.

Idol time

If there is one thing that will pry us away from doing whatever it is we do, it’s American Idol. Why? One word: David Archuleta! Two words: Awesome! Imagine Beyond words: Best Audition ever! And I am telling you, you’re going to love me!: Singing to Season 1 contestants at eleven years! Holy Crap, he’s better than Alicia Keys!” Technorati Tags: american idol, merkin idle Tweet

I’m f***ing Matt Damon / Ben Affleck

Truth be told, I fell asleep watching the Oscars on Oscar Night (known in Singapore as “Why Does It Have To Be On A Monday Morning”) before a single award was presented. Also not present at the party was Jimmy Kimmel of Jimmy Kimmel Live! But if star watching’s your cup of tea, then what happened on that show would be, well, your cup of tea. A few weeks ago, Kimmel’s girlfriend, Sarah Silverman made a hilarious birthday video for him titled, “I’m fucking Matt Damon”, and last night, he premiered his response, predictably titled “I’m fucking Ben Affleck”. But his video is a much, much bigger production, and features hilarious cameos by, if I’m not wrong, Robin Williams, Don Cheadle, Harrison Ford, Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate, Benji Madden, Joel Madden, Dicky Barrett, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lance Bass, Dominic Monaghan, Meatloaf, Pete Wentz, Joan Jett, Huey Lewis, Perry Farrell, Macy Gray and Josh Groban.
