Friday LinkFrogging - 5/18/12

I didn't want to do it.

I tried every way I could to avoid it.

All week.  Every day.  I looked and I looked.

To my surprise and dismay I had already exercised all of the other available options.

Then, yesterday, I ran across a couple of articles that made the decision easier to make.

Oh, I still didn't like it, but I could live with it.

Why all the angst?

Because I now have to introduce you to his week's cheesecake.  Please say hello to Jennifer Lopez, or, get this, J'Lo for short.

In a week that features a movie based on a board game starring a pop diva as a soldier and chick flick full of Hollywood babes, I discovered that J'Lo was the only one of the ladies in question who hadn't been featured in LinkFrogging yet.  Anna Kendrick, your red carpet cleavage will only get you so far.  I'm just saying.

Anyway, as I was coming to terms with my editorial decision, I ran across a story that said Forbes had just named Ms. Lopez the most powerful celebrity (of what they don't say), moving up from 50 to oust Oprah from the top spot.

Then, as I was digesting that piece of information, I ran across a second story that said that Ms. Lopez was going to leave her judging position on American Idol.

When the Multiverse throws a pair of stories like that at you, back-to-back, even I can recognize it as a sign.

Now, I still don't know how they make a movie out of a book about expectations and anxieties related to pregnancy and childbirth, but What to Expect When You're Expecting opens today.  The early reviews are NOT good.

Before we get to the links, I wanted to let you all know that nobody has claimed last week's Dark Shadows giveaway.  Now that opening weekend is past us and the bad taste of the Tim Burton movie version is gone, maybe you want to refresh your palate with a taste of the cult classic original.  Just go to last week's LinkFrogging, find the hidden link in the link section, click on it and send me an email with your address.  When you do, I'll send you, free of charge a copy of MPI Home Video's Dark Shadows - The Greatest Episodes Collection - Fan Favorites.  It's just that easy !

On to the links.
