Saturday morning coffee

- Steven Tyler, lead singer of Aerosmith, is upset at anonymous bloggers who claim to be him. According to NBC Los Angeles, Tyler is attempting to sue a group of bloggers who, he says, were impersonating him, sharing private facts and making false statements, including using his likeness on the web. His ire follows a similar case where Kanye West found someone on Twitter claiming to be him. West was successful at getting Twitter to take down the account.

- Happy Anniversary to my bride today!

- Some notable casualties coming out of network upfronts week--Eli Stone, Samantha Who, Without a Trace and My Name is Earl. All of these shows were not picked up by their respective networks for the upcoming TV season.

- Joan Collins turn 76 today. For those too young to know Collins, think of her as a cougar before "cougar" became the name of a reality TV show.

- Quentin Tarantino's new flick, Inglourious Basterds, is generating a lot of buzz at the Cannes Film Festival. Does QT not know how to spell or is this some funky juxtaposition of the English spelling combined with a misspelling of "turd?" Just wondering...

- Happy holiday weekend, dear readers.
