Where’s Fenton? In that electronic triangle on the table, calling from New York, having just arrived from speaking at a non-fictional programming summit in DC, and from watching movies at Sundance, where he stayed remarkably swag-free. Talk turns, as it will, to eating disorders and the doc Thin – and Jared Leto. Randy is fresh from a work-related stay in Parumph, Nevada, where there are no Italian restaurants and all the food is awful and is topped with slabs of butter. All life at the airport, he noticed, stops for the Oprah! show. Project Runway and why it works. American Idol and Paula Abdul’s improvement, the judges’ chemistry, and the supposed homophobia of it all. James wonders if anyone has seen the 3AM-to-5AM block of news shows on ABC, and is met with the chirping of crickets. Newsmen, anchors, and – wait for it – Anderson Cooper. Andy Cohen, his Bravo blog, his soft clothes. Moye’s topic is earwax: dry and flaky vs sticky. Oscars. Beyoncé. Heath, Oprah, Brokeback, Frey, Oprah, and due diligence. Oh, and fat black actors in drag.
