As someone on Public Address said, I dunno about Snoop Dogg being so blase about our Anna Paquin.

Is he really being blase? He wrote a whole song about her. I'm pretty sure he's in luuuuurve.

Cross promotional tie-ins are a beautiful thing, y'all.

My favorite part is the bewigged Sookie back-up dancers.

I prefer my cheesy snoop dogg marketing old school.

I assume cheesy snoop dogg is infused with cheez whiz.

I'm afraid I don't. But I remember "Get your jimmy thicker with St. Ides malt liquor."

I saw this last night, and heard about it before then. I love it. I also love how both Snoop and Ice Cube have evolved, in different ways, from threatening scary black men into lovable comic actors.

And people think marijuana should be illegal.

Ice Cube, straight outta Woodland Hills, done up in Jheri Curls by Dr. Dre as World Class Wreckin' Cru's answer to Egyptian Lover: never forget!

I'm sure the song has built-in appeal for someone who's been following the show or books (which I have not), but I didn't think it was very good, you know, as a song, compared to other things, both silly and serious, that Snoop has done. But maybe I'm just crabby right now.

16: I don't think the song is any good, and I haven't particularly followed the series or the books. I just think the premise is really funny.

What's funny about it is the fanboyish sincerity. I mean, in reality, HBO or Alan Ball probably negotiated for six months with Snoop's agents and lawyers to get him to do a song, he's earning a couple hundred grand or so for doing it, and HBO had creative control over the content. But it feels like he was watching True Blood at home, thought that Sookie was hot, and just had to turn his lust into song.

This weekend, I noted to Rfts that Snoop has aged into a quietly... respectable isn't the word, but a beloved cheeseball. Need someone to be a stoner in your movie? Send Snoop a bag of cash. Want Snoop to appear as the gamesmaster, moving scantily clad pieces around in the new Katy Perry video? Send Snoop a bag of cash, and probably a bag full of hash. He's the Cheech for our generation! You could imagine him laughing it up with Ellen DeGeneris on a revived Hollywood Squares.

Contrast to Coolio and his spelling issues.

Snoop's webcam show was so great. Hang out with snoop as he sits around in his office, smoking giant quantities of weed and playing records for four straight hours.

Definitely killed any idea I might have had that celebrities led lives of nonstop excitement.

The Snoop-Dogg thread is the right one to use to request information about the aid-to-terrorist-groups Supreme Court decision, right? How is this not massively unconstitutional?

The constitution is a geographical expression.
