Kathy Landin is a freelance internet pop-culture junkie (and web video producer). For a brief time in 2011, she was THIS close to being Charlie Sheen's social media intern for the summer. She's blogged for local TV stations, anonymous dating adventures and stupid advice columns. Mostly she entertains herself by practicing the fine art of idiocy, which you can watch in Kathy Landin's "I'm an Idiot" Show. Or, if you have a short attention span, get 140 characters of idiocy on Twitter.

5 Things You Should and Shouldn’t Say in a Job Interview

If you’re great at networking, filling out online applications and following up, chances are, you’ve landed an interview or two. Good work. That’s not so easy these days. But your work isn’t over.

In fact, your work is just beginning. The interview is where your true job-getting skills will have to come out. In fact, compared to everything you did to get it, the interview is like doing open-heart and brain surgery while also teaching a child how to tie his shoes. Not the easiest thing in the world.

Steve Martin Becomes a First-Time Dad at 67

Another Hollywood couple is hearing the pitter-patter of little feet. Following in the footsteps of Larry King and David Letterman, Steve Martin has become a daddy later in life.

The 67-year-old writer/comedian/musician (seriously, what can't he do) and his wife Anne Stringfield, 41, were spotted in LA with a new baby whom they somehow managed to keep a secret for months. Or that they took from a momentarily neglected grocery cart at Ralph’s. Take your pick.

Celebrities Take to Twitter as President Obama Is Inaugurated for a Second Term

Just like us, when celebrities watch or are a part of something historical, they want to tweet about it. Which beats yet another missive about concert dates or a regretful shot of a naked body part.

Anyway, Monday's Presidential Inauguration was nothing shy of a major event for our country -- Barack Obama, our nation’s first African-American president, was sworn in on Martin Luther King Jr. Day using MLK’s own bible, after which he gave an inspiring speech inclusive of many still-downtrodden groups and told us we have work to do to ensure freedom for all Americans.

Oh, and Michelle Obama has a new haircut!

Anna Kendrick Posts a Dirty Tweet About Ryan Gosling That Speaks for Millions

The majority of women with eyes who watch movies find Ryan Gosling at least somewhat attractive. He’s not for everyone, but clearly this is a man who can join the George Clooney club of empirical handsome.

And judging by the naughty tweet of one actress, his universal appeal extends into Hollywood, too.

Beyonce and Jay-Z Make Up for Bad Naming Skills by Spending $200,000 on Blue Ivy’s First Birthday

It hardly seems possible, but the grapevine is just sure that new mommy and daddy Beyonce and Jay-Z spent upwards of $200,000 to celebrate the first birthday of their adorable and questionably-named bundle of joy, Blue Ivy.

We don’t want to believe it because all we got for our first birthday was a face full of cheap frosting, but perhaps the rumors don’t lie.

As Usual, ‘Sesame Street’ Teaches Us All Something – This Time, About Life and Death [VIDEO]

On Friday, as we all reeled from the horrific Sandy Hook school shootings in Connecticut, we were torn about how to address them here. This isn't a hard news site, but at the same time, it seemed odd to ignore the situation completely.

Ultimately, we chose to carry on with business as usual and hope that maybe it provided a bit of a break from reality from those who so desperately needed it.

Then a vintage clip from 'Sesame Street' started making the rounds. And as always, our favorite children's program of yore eloquently taught us all a little something -- this time, about life and death.

Well, Here’s a Surprise: Amy Winehouse May Not Have Died of Alcohol Poisoning After All

When Amy Winehouse died in July of 2011 at the tender age of 27, few people were surprised when the autopsy revealed acute alcohol poisoning was responsible for her early demise. She partied hard, had her issues with various substances and just seemed like the kind of celeb to burn out rather than fade away.

So it's a bit of a shock to find out that that the cause of her death may have been misidentified by an unqualified coroner.

Your 2012 Holiday Guide to Weird Celebrity-Themed Gifts

You know the type. The infatuated friends who just can’t get enough of certain celebs so they make it their life’s work to own anything and everything with that celebrity’s face or name on it. (It’s possible we do this with Johnny Depp but you can’t prove anything.)

There are plenty of bizarre products out there that can bring them right into your home so they become a part of your everyday life -- like a 'Twilight' engagement ring, a Justin Bieber toothbrush, and even rum made by porn star Ron Jeremy.
