LBGP/Cheap Trick

Hi Marty,

Here's a photo I took of Cheap Trick performing at the Long Beach Grand Prix Saturday night.

The concert was great-thousands singing along outdoors as the music echoed through the concrete canyons of the city. The race was good too. Ryan Hunter-Reay won. He's an American (rare in open wheel racing), and his Mom passed away last year from cancer. He used to live in SoCal and go to this race with her when he was a kid. During the last few laps he was thinking, "This one's for you Mom."

Good stuff.

Retired Teacher Ed

Thanks, Ed!

Pearl Jam Duo Join In


Conan O'Brien upped the musical ante of his "Prohibited From Being Funny On Television" tour Monday in Seattle, when a pair of Pearl Jammers showed up unexpectedly to rock the late-night host's 47th birthday gig.

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder played a three-song mini-set. Accompanying himself on mandolin, Vedder began with "Rise," from his 2007 solo soundtrack to the film "Into The Wild." Next, he picked up a Telecaster-styled ukulele for a version of John Lennon's "Oh Yoko," on which he led a sing-along of "Oh Conan."

For his finale, Vedder brought out Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready for a cover of the Who's "Baba O'Riley" that was backed amusingly by O'Brien's horn section.

Pearl Jam holds the distinction of being the very first musical guest last June on NBC's short-lived "Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien."

Military Religious Freedom Foundation


A watchdog group objected Tuesday to an evangelist's invitation to speak at the Pentagon next month, saying his past description of Islam as "evil" offended Muslims who work for the Department of Defense and the appearance should be canceled.

Mikey Weinstein, president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, said inviting evangelist Franklin Graham to speak May 6, the National Day of Prayer, "would be like bringing someone in on national prayer day madly denigrating Christianity" or other religious groups.

Graham is the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham and president and CEO of both Samaritan's Purse, a Christian international relief organization in Boone, N.C., and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, in Charlotte, N.C.

He said through a spokesman that he will be a guest of the Pentagon and will speak only if he's still invited. A military spokeswoman said she was locating officials to respond to the criticism.

After the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Graham said Islam "is a very evil and wicked religion." He hasn't changed his views on Islam, said his spokesman, Mark DeMoss.



Another 'Curb' Season

Larry David

Larry David will be back for more comedy and angst when HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" returns for an eighth season.

David says the decision to do more was reached "after much soul-searching - and by the way, it was nowhere to be found."

"Curb" is a larger-than-life depiction of its star's neurotic world. It begins filming 10 new episodes in Los Angeles and New York this summer. HBO said in its announcement Tuesday that they are slated to debut next year.

"Curb" had concluded its seventh season in November and already is HBO's longest-running scripted comedy or drama series.

Cirque Show

Michael Jackson

First the Beatles and Elvis, now Michael Jackson.

The acrobatic troupe Cirque du Soleil announced Tuesday that it will put on a live touring show featuring the songs of the King of Pop starting late next year.

That will be followed by a permanent production in Las Vegas in 2012 at a property owned by MGM Mirage Inc. The casino company did not say which venue will host the show. A nightclub in Las Vegas will also open with the show.

Cirque and Jackson's estate will each own 50 percent of the projects and share equally in the cost of putting them on. The estate will also receive royalties from the use of Jackson's music and other assets.

23rd Season


Fox Rupert is renewing one of the longest-running shows in primetime, "Cops," for a 23rd season.

The series will soon celebrate its 800th episode on the network and has shown 2,044 arrests across 140 U.S. cities.

"We're doing gangbusters," creator John Langley said. "It's an existential variety show -- dramatic, life-threatening, philosophical and legal. We're still the only show on television with no script, no actors, no host and no re-enactments."

Despite its age, the franchise also ranks as one of the few primetime broadcast series to maintain its ratings this year. Although Friday shows have been declining, Saturday night's "Cops" continues to rake in a steady 5 million viewers per week.

Wrongful Death Lawsuit Dismissed

Biggie Smalls

Court filings show a long-running federal lawsuit over the death of rapper Notorious B.I.G. against the city of Los Angeles has been dismissed.

Attorneys for the estate of the rapper and the city agreed to dismiss the case "without prejudice," a legal designation that means the allegations could be brought in another lawsuit.

The case was first filed in 2002, five years after the rapper's death. It went to trial in 2005, but it ended in a mistrial after a judge said a police detective had hidden statements by a jailhouse informant linking the killing to two former officers.

B.I.G., born Christopher Wallace and known as Biggie Smalls, was 24 when he was gunned down in March 1997, after leaving a late-night party at a Los Angeles museum.

A police investigation into the rapper's death is ongoing.

Robbed At Gunpoint In D.C.

Kal Penn

Actor Kal Penn's agent confirms that the actor who played Kumar in the movie "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle" and had a recurring role on the Fox show "House" was robbed at gunpoint in Washington, D.C.

The Indian-American actor whose given name is Kalpen Modi is working in the White House's Office of Public Liaison. He is focusing on connecting President Barack Obama with the Asian-American and Pacific Islander communities.

Penn's agent Jennifer Goodwin confimed a report that Penn was walking in the city at 1:20 a.m. Tuesday when a robber took his wallet and other items.

Penn did not respond to requests for comment. The White House referred inquiries to the Metropolitan Police Department, which said it could not release information.

Gets 5-Years

Cameron Douglas

A judge sentenced Michael Douglas' son on drug charges to five years in prison Tuesday, calling it his "last chance to make it."

U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman announced the sentence after hearing 31-year-old Cameron Douglas apologize with his father in court, admitting that he had squandered a lot of opportunities to turn his life around.

Early in a sentencing hearing that stretched more than an hour, the judge said he was not confident that Douglas would turn his back on drugs after pleading guilty in January to charges that he dealt large quantities of methamphetamine and cocaine.

A charge of conspiracy to distribute drugs carried a mandatory 10 years in prison, but the judge said the government had agreed that Douglas qualified for a lesser sentence. It had been revealed at a pretrial hearing that Douglas had tried to cooperate.

Accepted To Pretrial Program

Cyrus Shepherd-Oppenheim

Philadelphia prosecutors have agreed to accept the son of actress Cybill Shepherd into a pretrial diversion program in a theft case against him.

Cyrus Shepherd-Oppenheim of Sebastopol, Calif., is charged with stealing cash, a camera and other items from carry-on luggage during a cross-country United Airlines flight in January.

The University of Pennsylvania student appeared Tuesday in Philadelphia Municipal Court. Prosecutors say his record will be cleared if he abides by all conditions while he's in the program. Another hearing is scheduled for June 4.

Shepherd-Oppenheim is the son of the "Moonlighting" star and her ex-husband, chiropractor Bruce Oppenheim.

Woman Drops Lawsuit

David Copperfield

A woman who accused David Copperfield of luring her to his private island in the Bahamas and raping her - and who was later charged with fabricating sexual assault claims against another man - dropped her federal lawsuit against the magician Tuesday.

Attorneys for model and waitress Lacey Carroll announced her decision in a news release.

"It has never been about money," Carroll said in the statement. "I just wanted him held accountable for what he did."

Carroll claimed Copperfield pulled her out of the crowd during a show in Kennewick, in southeastern Washington. She was later invited to visit his island in July 2007. The trip was supposed to lead to possible modeling gigs doing promotional brochures or other materials for Copperfield, she claimed, but Copperfield forced her to perform sex acts instead.

Split A Shock


Mel "Sugar Tits" Gibson's Russian ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva has spoken out about their split at her first public appearance since the break-up was revealed.

The 39-year-old musician - who gave birth to Mel's daughter Lucia last October - attended a press conference in Moscow on Monday to announce a concert for the Give A Life charity.

According to OK magazine, Oksana said: "I can tell you that we have split up, suddenly and recently, unfortunately, I cannot give you the reason. But you will find out everything quite soon."

She added: "Here is the official version: We split up by mutual consent and we will raise our daughter together. She is currently with my mother in my Los Angeles home."

Oksana also confirmed to reporters she is having a hammer-and-sickle tattoo - which Mel, 54, suggested for her - removed from her ankle.



New Charge In Extortion Case

John Stamos

Federal prosecutors in Michigan's Upper Peninsula have filed a fresh criminal charge against two people accused of trying to extort money from actor John Stamos.

Scott Sippola and Allison Coss are charged with using interstate commerce to make the threat. It was filed Monday as a "felony information," which means a guilty plea is likely.

Sippola and Coss are accused of threatening to sell photos of Stamos unless he paid them $680,000. They were arrested in December at an airport near Marquette. At the time, Stamos' spokesman said there was nothing embarrassing about the images.

Stamos met Coss in Florida in 2004 and attended a party where photos were taken.

Regulators Approve 2nd Market

Movie Futures

U.S. regulators on Tuesday approved a second market that would give speculators a way to bet on expected movie box office receipts, but again withheld a decision on the contracts that would allow trading to begin.

The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission's ruling on the Cantor Futures Exchange follows a similar decision it made last week approving the Trend Exchange.

Hollywood's major studios and the country's largest theater-owners organization have opposed the trading of movie futures contracts, calling it a form of legalized gambling.

Cantor Fitzgerald LP, the backer of the futures market, said in a statement it appreciated the "excellent work" of the commission.

High Holiday


Forget Hippie Hill. For thoroughly modern marijuana smokers in the San Francisco Bay area, the hip place to celebrate their movement's high holiday this year was the inside of a stretch Hummer parked outside a pot gardening superstore.

Marijuana legalization advocates across the country are expected to light up during Tuesday's annual observance of 4/20, the celebration-cum-mass civil disobedience derived from "420" - insider shorthand for cannabis consumption.

IGrow, a 3-month-old cultivation equipment emporium, got a 24-hour jump, sponsoring a "420 Eve" festival Monday afternoon.

Several hundred revelers lined up outside the 15,000-square-foot shop - security guards kept them at bay until 4:20 p.m. - waiting for the chance to revel in marijuana's rising commercial clout.

Welcome !

You have reached the Home page of BartCop Entertainment.
Make yourself home, take your shoes off...
Go ahead, scratch it if it itches.

The idea is to have fun.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?
Just plain vile, filthy rumors?
This is your place.

(In other words, submissions are welcome.)
