In 1999, 23-year-old singer-songwriter Bree Sharp
recorded "David Duchovny
," a fangirl ode to the male star of The X-Files
. After the demo tape proved popular in Duchovny's trailer, two X-Files
assistants created a celebrity-filled music video as a gag for the show Christmas party. A grainy bootleg of the video quickly went pre-Youtube-viral among X-Philes. Twelve years later, a high-definition version of the "David Duchovny" video sees daylight for the first time

Jerry Springer: The Opera?
You know, whenever I happened to have this misfortune to watch Springer, I too thought "It's got tragedy. It's got violence. There are people screaming at each other and you can't understand what they're saying." but I didn't quite make the leap that "It's perfect for opera."
But now on an operatic journey that takes us the tv studio to hell
, the British National Theatre
is realizing this vision.
To quote from the libretto: "This is a Jerry Springer moment!" sing the chorus. "We don't want this moment to end, so cover us in chocolate and throw us to the lesbians."
Skeptical? Read the reviews!

Jerry Springer: the Opera
has become a cult classic in London! Is this another testimony to the death of high culture or the popularity of American talk shows like Jerry Springer? Has anybody seen or heard about this themselves?

Jerry Springer guest pulls a Jenny Jones.
A guest of the show is suspected of killing his ex-wife, who also appeared on the show earlier this year. I'll admit the Jenny Jones case was worse (getting the guests drunk, etc.), but you know Jerry doesn't really care about his guests when he says things like "The show is television ... this is life and death." What about the guests' lives and how the show affects them Jerry? Is that just television too?
