My New Club

I'm starting a new club. Anyone want to join? It's called the I'm Fucking Sick of Hearing About Angelina Fucking Jolie Club. There will be a secret handshake and we'll wear big fake lips in the club house at all times. Who's with me?

Fine, although I do secretly love her, I am pretty much sick of seeing her everywhere I look. I'd love to be first to join! :) Will the lips be those cool wax kind???

Even though I wouldn't kick her out of bed for eating crackers (especially if she was dressed up like Laura Croft) I too would offer my services to that club and would also like to propose a Tom Cruise wing in the clubhouse. We could all wear leather jackets and pilot's sunglasses and spend our days jumping on the couches. Just a suggestion.

It's bad when a question about the t-shirt their baby was wearing on the cover of a magazine gets into NPR's "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me" show. That's ENOUGH! Hand me the lips!

Chris, my friend! There, there. You're just pissed off because our president is a fucking moron, possibly an evil fucking moron, who lied to get us into a fucking war for no good fucking reason and poor boys and girls and men and women and children are fucking dying physical, mental, and emotional deaths in the most brutal manner imaginable while our good government sits around and gives themselves a fucking raise. Oh wait. That's just me.

But thank GOD we've got the Jolie-Pitts to distract us from that. Otherwise we might get off our asses and do something to actually better the world. LIKE END THE FUCKING WAR ALREADY.

Sorry, I seem to have lost my cool there. Angelina overexposed? A slight understatement. At least she's not crying "poor me I'm a celebrity and people harrass me" like some other twit last week.

I know it's a lot to take sometimes. Maybe there is a support group for Angelina Overdose Victims. I guess we could turn off our tvs. And the internet. And stop going to the supermarket!

Eh, you're right. There is no escape! Help! *secret handshake*

Count me in. While I think she's pretty cool in general, I think the media is making WAY WAY too big a deal over her.

I like the fake lips idea, I really do. But I already own a pair of Bubba Teeth. Perhaps I'll wear those instead, just to be different.

Posted by: Alissa at June 20, 2006 07:42 PM

I'm in.

Posted by: mingaling at June 20, 2006 07:42 PM

What??? A guy who wants to start this club??? I think I love you.

Posted by: Debbie at June 20, 2006 07:46 PM

Sign me up. I am personally sick to death of seeing her pouty face, and goth look on every magazine cover, TV tabloid and of course grocery store check out line rag.

Posted by: Maribeth at June 20, 2006 08:10 PM

Nothing against her, I'm just tired of all celebrities all the time. I like what she's been doing with kids but I don't need to read about her and Brad every time I click on a site - any site.

Of course if no one clicked on, the media might get the idea. In my dreams.

Posted by: ann adams at June 20, 2006 08:12 PM

hahaha...or as the Spanish say...jajajaja.
Love it.
Great point!

Posted by: Jamie at June 20, 2006 08:16 PM

I am so very in.

Posted by: samantha at June 20, 2006 08:16 PM

I was going to say "I AM SO IN!" and then I looked and saw that Samantha said the same thing, and that it would look very dumb of me to post it right after her, even if I hadn't looked at her comment for inspiration.

But anyway, my point is this: if I have to hear one more thing about how f*ing beautiful Shiloh is (umm...she's like 3 weeks old!) I might kill myself. Which would be tragic for everyone, trust me.

Posted by: DCOE at June 20, 2006 08:21 PM

so basically the number one rule about the jolie club is that no one speaks about jolie? gotcha.

sorry. it had to be done.

you know, i'm not as sick of her as everyone else is but that's not because i particularly like her. i just realized that i'm extremely adept at avoiding reading/hearing/seeing anything about her. i didn't think i was consciously avoiding it though. who knew?

Posted by: patricia at June 20, 2006 08:23 PM

Count me in, although Mrs. Spears Federline could take a few interviewing notes from her.

Posted by: Shash at June 20, 2006 08:41 PM

Delurking to say I'm in...only if we can amend it to include a Shut The Heck Up Already About Britney's Parenting Skills craft hour.

Posted by: Anne at June 20, 2006 08:44 PM

Oh I am so with you. And that whole pots and pans band thing? Idiotic. One of my friends mentioned getting one for me and I asked her to please not do that. PLEASE?! I don't want anyone to think I want to be like Angelina.

Posted by: donna at June 20, 2006 09:38 PM

**Raises hand**

Posted by: ::c:: at June 20, 2006 09:58 PM

*secret handshake*

I'm in. I've brought day-old asparagus, flea collars and duct tape for everyone. Let's get to work.

Posted by: bhd at June 20, 2006 10:06 PM

OMG count me IN.
ugh

Posted by: jen at June 20, 2006 10:15 PM

I'm in. The wax lips, right?

Posted by: Kris at June 20, 2006 10:17 PM

Yeah I'm in. I think Angie does great things for the UN, but I'm pretty sick of hearing about ALL the damn celebrities. Since when are the happenings of celebs news? The final straw was hearing celeb "news" on NPR - enough!!

Posted by: Beth in StL at June 20, 2006 10:23 PM

I love celebrity gossip, and I'm quite sure that this is because I have absolutely no drama in my life (which is a good thing). However, having had a dramatic life every day up until the last year or so, things sort of felt empty dramaless so I picked up celebrity gossip and while I am tired of hearing about Brangelina, I'd prefer to hear about her than Spederline.

Posted by: Emily at June 20, 2006 10:27 PM

lol, yea, it's been a bit much lately!

What do you think about the fact that she's already talking about adopting another baby? Just curious.

Posted by: Kestrel at June 20, 2006 10:29 PM

I was never really fond of her so it'd be my pleasure to knock her off. Saving babies from other countries, what about our own?

Posted by: Lurker at June 20, 2006 10:39 PM

The fact that Im a 19-year-old male might excuse the fact that I still think Jolie is pretty cute. Although extremely overrated, especially these days. ie. the breasts? We saw them in Taking Lives, and they were nothing special. The wonders of wardrobe design these days.

Still, if I were to create a Frankenbride, I'd elect to chop out her eyes for the milieu. Perhaps our goals aren't so different after all.

Posted by: Gavin at June 20, 2006 10:48 PM

very sick of angelina. my friend told me that they made a "fabulous life of brangelina's baby" on VH1. the thing is like 48 hours old!

Posted by: Denise at June 20, 2006 11:00 PM

I am SO in!

Posted by: Chris at June 20, 2006 11:16 PM

Can I be secretary? I hate her.

Posted by: Stephanie at June 20, 2006 11:19 PM

okay i must be totally out of the loop. i dont hear about her all that much.

and yeah and i am one of those adorers who thinks she is really pretty too! i do wonder about those lips though.

Posted by: Jess at June 20, 2006 11:37 PM

*raises hand*

Posted by: reb at June 20, 2006 11:55 PM

I'm not sick of her, per se. Just the weird freaking guys she hooks up with.

Other than that...

Posted by: Allan at June 21, 2006 12:44 AM

hey Buddy

If you could mention me more details about your club as i wanna be a part of it!

I hate Angelina so please tell me full details about your club!!!:P

Posted by: John at June 21, 2006 12:54 AM

no. i love her. she can do no wrong, ever. she's so totally on my list. hell, even if there wasn't a list... she'd be the one gimme i'd get. she's my pretend celebrity lover.

so, no. i boycott your club. i'm sure it'll be fun and all, but damn how can you walk away from all that oozing hotness??? ;)

Posted by: colleen at June 21, 2006 01:24 AM

Oh HELLS yeah. Nothing against her personally, just against the stupid over-reporting (overting?) in the media. ENOUGH ALREADY!

Posted by: Kristina at June 21, 2006 03:14 AM

I'll join! I'll join!

Posted by: Alice at June 21, 2006 05:25 AM

You MUST read this article.....

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/13437571/site/newsweek/

What has the world come to?

Posted by: Dana at June 21, 2006 06:06 AM

Ok...so regarding my above post, I totally missed at first that it was all written in humor. I'll blame this on the fact that I am in the last hour of my new overnight shift at work. Thank goodness its temporary. Geesh.

Posted by: Dana at June 21, 2006 06:08 AM

Okay, I'm in as long as we don't have to pay any dues.

Posted by: Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah at June 21, 2006 07:45 AM

I think the club is a great idea. I'm totally in. And maybe in addition to the lips, we can get some Sal Fasano mustaches?? Just an idea! LOL And just to add, what's the deal with Bradjolina wanting to adopt another kid? THEY JUST HAD ONE!!!! I guess Shiloh's already out of the spotlight if they're considering another adoption.

Posted by: Michelle at June 21, 2006 08:38 AM

I'm there too...

Posted by: Kristy at June 21, 2006 09:20 AM

Oh I am soooo in this club. Finaly a club I fit in!!! Yay.

Posted by: Jenn at June 21, 2006 09:27 AM

I'm just curious as to what the public will think when all of Angelina's children are teenagers. Or more importantly, what her teenage children will think of the public? I sincerely hope that they have a chance at peaceful lives, but I don't think the paparazzi/media will make that possible.

That said, if I didn't see another photo or article for another 5 years it would probably be too soon.

Posted by: Betti at June 21, 2006 09:30 AM

I'm in! I'm in!

Posted by: ironic1 at June 21, 2006 09:46 AM

Sign me up!

apparently, we should fight (bum bum) for our right (tap tap tap tap) to SHIIIIILOOO!!! barring press access to brangelina is dictatorial and a violation of free speech or something.

Posted by: Kara at June 21, 2006 11:08 AM

I'm with you.

Look she had an affair with a married man. Imagine she did that to you? It hurts having to have your husband leave you, it hurts more watching them prance all over the pages of magazines playing house.

She made out with her brother. Just because she famous doesn't take away from the fact that it's called INCEST. IT's WRONG. And something is seriously wrong with her family. What will she teach her children about this sort of thing...you can sex with your sister because she's not really your sister. Her morals are whacked, seriously.

She wore a vial of blood from Billy Bob around her neck. Um sane people don't do this.

She cuts her sons hair into a Mohawk and he wears eyeliner. Again.....wtf? Is he her Barbie or G.I. Joe that she plays dress up with ? He's a little boy for heavens sake.

Both her and Brad are two very, very messed up people. They have hurt people with their actions. Take out the celebrity factor and you have a cunt and an asshole. Period.

Posted by: Michele at June 21, 2006 12:03 PM

Man, I was gonna jump on the AJ hater bandwagon until I read Michele's post and was reminded of how much I like her.

Posted by: krystyn at June 21, 2006 12:08 PM

I'm behind the times here, but I really really want to join this club.

When DH and I were first dating, we rented a movie that had a Lara Croft preview at the beginning. "Oh, there's Angelina Jolie," he said. "She sure has some big.... lips."

I think that's the day I decided to spend the rest of my life with him. ;)

Posted by: Julie at June 21, 2006 01:02 PM

Yay! It's about time someone thought of it! When do I get my big fake lips?

Posted by: Mary at June 21, 2006 01:28 PM

Sounds good. Her lips are real though--there was a whole thing on them on music news the other day...Yes, a whole thing on them, and, no, I had nothing better to watch!

Posted by: haley-o at June 21, 2006 03:13 PM

I know I'm late. Sorry.

I quit watching any news shows for a week. Switched to classic radio FM broadcast from the UK and I don't buy magazines or, newspapers. Then I decided to read my news on the Arts & Letters Daily website.

Shazzam, all mention of those people dissapeared. It was damn hypnotic I tell you!!

Posted by: chantel at June 21, 2006 04:11 PM

Thank you. Like she's the only one to ever give birth? Please. The media makes me sick.

Posted by: Milly at June 21, 2006 05:23 PM

One insane commenter to my blog suggested Angelina is just like Mother Teresa. I...uh....have to disagree. Strongly. I need a membership in this club.

Posted by: wordgirl at June 21, 2006 05:56 PM

I actually like the woman. Sorry. But I don't like the stupid name the press gave her. And I'd rather hear about her than most of the others.

So I am offically boy-cotting said club. ;)

But we can still be friends, right?

Posted by: Melissa at June 21, 2006 06:26 PM

I am SO in. Can't stand her. Or Brad.

Posted by: erin at June 21, 2006 07:30 PM

I am so in.

By the way...I got my first international hate mail for an anti-Branjelina post. Apparently the Dutch love themselves some Branjelina.

Posted by: Jenny at June 22, 2006 07:30 PM

Nope. This is one club I will not join. I love my Angelina. So nyah. ;-P

I can only agree that there is too much coverage on them. And any other celebrities, really. I love my celebrity news, but sometimes it's just too damn much.

Posted by: oakley at June 23, 2006 01:10 PM

I want to be in charge of marketing this to the masses. I also want to be speech writer wherein I will steal some of her eloquently phrased dialogue with Anderson Cooper. Have you seen that uneducated drivel? I admit, I skimmed it. I'm a rubbernecker on a California freeway. She's so awesome that she has so much income she can donate it to help people overseas and yet be a good old-fashioned homewrecker!
