Artiste, director, student, stoner, and actor James Franco is once again trying to infect the world with his “brilliance.” Since Franco’s short story collection Palo Alto was pretty much panned for being an utter piece of shit, he’s decided to have another go at it, but this time he’s writing a novel.
The novel, Actors Anonymous, will be published by Amazon and is supposed to be a fictionalized account of Franco’s trials and tribulations as an actor. He’s done everything else, so he might as well tackle this end of the art world as well.
However, since he’s made it clear with this last attempt that writing isn’t exactly his forte, we’ve decided to a make a list of 10 suggestions for the darling for which he may be better suited. Besides self-involved fawning, of course. More

Let’s face it, to fact-paced teenagers, Harry Potter, Twilight and The Hunger Games are already classics. They’re just sitting on the shelf next to Narnia by now. These may be the most popular franchises for teens out there, but avid readers have probably made it through these series at least a dozen times already. They’re looking for new, exciting, soon-to-be explosive books to sink their teeth into.
I can still remember being that kid who received a series of books from Santa and spent the rest of my Christmas break curled into an armchair devouring new characters and stories. I wasn’t playing with new gadgets or putting together an amazing line-up of back-from-break outfits. I was reading. In fact, laying down with a brand new book is still one of my favorite parts of Christmas Day. Hint, hint sweetheart. More

I don’t remember the drive home although I faintly recall someone—maybe it was Jinx or possibly even Jasmine—calling up the other cars which were a few minutes behind us and telling them that there was a change of plans and that we’d be driving back to my place instead. I wasn’t sure if I’d ever actually offered for everyone to come back to my house, but given the circumstances, I might’ve said just about anything to get away from the wreckage that used to be the construction warehouse.
There was so much wreckage. More

Thank you to whomever showed Ellen Barkin how to use Twitter. We hadn’t thought about her much since Ocean’s Thirteen in 2007, but now we’ll be following her thanks to her endless, shockingly filthy, stream of consciousness! Seriously, she’s some weird combination of sailor, rapper, and drunken Irishman.
More after the jump, because come on. More

Things I found out recently include the fact that the Kardashian sisters are making their fiction debut in November with a novel entitled Dollhouse. Says Kim, “”The novel is based on our lives but we’ve added a lot of crazy fictional twists and turns. You’ll have to decide for yourself which story lines are true to life, and which ones we dreamed up.” But Kim, Khloé, and Kourtney are far from the only celebs who have tried their hand at novel-writing. I can’t speak as to how much these shining literary achievements owe to a little thing we call ghostwriting, but some of them aren’t so bad. Others… well, take a look for yourselves! More
