I’m writing this with great hesitation and mild disgust. A couple days ago my sister was telling me about some made for TV documentary about how the “new thing” college students are doing is BUTT CHUGGING.
According to Urban Dictionary, butt chugging is the act of ingesting alcohol through one’s rectum to increase the alcohol’s effect and the speed with which one becomes intoxicated. Used in a sentence: “Hello Jonathan! Would you care to attend my party? We will be Butt Chugging!”
I know. WTF. While I’m pretty much writing this entire post with as much withdrawal as possible, I figure it’s part of my job to bring you what’s happening on campus.
Here are five things you need to know:
1. The so-called “vessel” for butt chugging is either a funnel or a soaked tampon. The latter of those two things is called “slimming.”
2. Alcohol is absorbed through your bloodstream faster through your rectum than through your mouth. Aka, it’s not just for show! There’s apparently a point to it…
3. One benefit: you won’t get the smell of alcohol on your breath. Though personally I merely wonder: “have you heard of gum?”
4. It’s not a new term. Look: Read more…

Laurence Fishburne is leaving ‘CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,’ reports CTV.
Joining the show midway through the 2008-09 season as Dr. Raymond Langston, Fishburne reportedly won’t be back on the crime drama this fall, says a source.
The source spoke anonymously on Tuesday because the announcement has not been officially announced, revealing that the show’s producers anticipated the leave as Fishburne’s movie career has always been his primary focus.
The show will return for its 12th season this fall, and still continues to rank among the 20 top-rated shows on television.
I always though Fishburne was better than television. No offence to TV actors, but he is just such a great actor and has such screen presence, that it’s time for him to focus on films again. Let’s do another ‘Matrix,’ yeah?
Marg Helgenberger who plays Catherine Willows on “CSI” told French radio that Justin ”was kind of a brat.” According to Helgenberger, Bieber locked a producer in a closet and put his fist through a cake.
You can listen to the entire interview at TMZ.
Don’t get too excited. The beloved Justin Bieber was only shot down in a new episode of CSI, which is the latest platform that the shaggy haired Canadian-boy has dominated.
The Biebs has been everywhere, from Ellen to SNL, over the past few weeks in a promotional rampage of his new concert-documentary: “Never Say Never”. On Thursday night, his short-lived television career as a character on CSI came to a tragic end.
The songbird returned to the set of the TV drama earlier this year to reprise his role as Jason McCann, after surprising both critics and cast-members with his acting skills last year.
You can watch and re-watch and share and soak in the hilarity here.
Bring on the YouTube remixes!
Fin Greenall, more famously known as UK singer-songwriter Fink, tours in a bus just like every other mid-level musician out there.
But if it were up to him, his ultimate tour would go a little something like this: roaming through the English countryside or vast stretches of North American highway on a motorbike, with the rest of his band and gear following in a van behind him. Granted he lifted most of the idea from biker-metal band Slayer, Greenall can’t be blamed for inventing a rock star fantasy to give an edge to his gentle acoustic guitar-wielding persona.
He muses for a moment about the very bad-ass nature of such a tour, blithely tallying the unpleasant logistics involved. But Greenall isn’t about to let a stiff behind and a few bugs in his teeth cramp his style.
“The problem with fantasies, the reality is that they’re a bummer,” says Greenall. “Sometimes you gotta go, ‘Well yeah, in Easy Rider those bikes look pretty uncomfortable. But you still look pretty fucking cool when you’re driving down the street.’”
It seems an unlikely way to start an interview with the angel-voiced tenor from Brighton, England. Yet Greenall somehow morphs the motorcycle daydream into an allegory for his music career, and ultimately, his life.
“You have to find the balance between what is doable and ‘Actually, that would suck,’” Greenall tells andPOP. “I wouldn’t be doing music at all. [People said] ‘Dude, you’re not going to be able to do it.’ And I said, ‘Well, fuck it. I’ll do it anyway.’”
Although he’s the newest CSI cast member, academy award nominee, Laurence Fishburne says that prior to auditioning for the show he’d never seen an episode of “CSI”.
According to CTV.ca, Fishburne said in an interview, “I felt a little stupid and embarrassed that I hadn’t watched the show.”
When William Petersen, who plays lead character, Gil Grissom, announced that he was leaving the show earlier this year, producers started searching for a new lead character for the crime series.
Starting early 2009, Fishburne will play a character called “The Professor”.
Petersen will make guest appearances on the show and will continue to be an executive producer for the series.
Fishburne will start taping with the series in September.
William Petersen has decided to leave “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” after more than eight seasons as forensics specialist Gil Grissom.
The tenth episode of the hit show’s upcoming season will be Peterson’s last as a full-time series regular, executive producer Carol Mendelsohn confirmed to Entertainment Weekly.
However, the original cast member will return for occasional guest appearances and will stay on as a “CSI” executive producer.
“I’m in a great place in terms of knowing that I’ll be more free to make choices.”,” Petersen told EW. “And I’m responsible enough to not do it in a way that would hurt [the show].
“I want it to work for the writers, I want it to work for the cast, and, most importantly, I want it to work for the audience,” he said. “I don’t want them to abandon the show.”
Petersen, who took a break during the 2006-07 season to perform in a play, has more stage projects lined up in the near future, including a starring role in “Dublin Carol” at Steppenwolf beginning Nov. 13.
“CSI,” which debuted in fall 2000, will feature the return of several familiar faces in the episodes leading up to Grissom’s departure, including former colleague and love interest Sara Sidle (Jorja Fox), Lady Heather (Melinda Clarke) and the Miniature Killer.
A new male investigator is also set to join the series, though the role has yet to be cast.
“CSI” finished last season as CBS’s top-rated series and ranked No. 9 among all shows with an average weekly audience of 17 million.
It has spawned two successful spinoffs, “CSI: Miami” and “CSI: New York.”
Lauren Lee Smith is left to fill in the void left by Gary Dourdan and Jorja Fox. “The L Word” star is set to join “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” as a series regular next season, CBS has announced.
The Vancouver-born actress will play Bryce Adams— a “smart, flirtatious and witty nonconformist” — who got into police work to rebel against her judgmental psychiatrist father. Adams is set to join Gil Grissom’s team in the night shift.
Fox and Dourdan have left the show after failing to draw out new contracts. Smith had a recurring role on Showtime’s “The L Word” as sous chef Lara Perkins and played Emma DeLauro in the show “Mutant X.”
CSI star Gary Dourdan is talking about his recent arrest—and he’s ashamed.
”Obviously I am embarrassed to find myself in this situation, and I am profoundly grateful to everyone for their support,” said in a statement to People. “I have complete confidence in and respect for the justice system and will cooperate fully with any investigation.”
This past weekend an e-mail exchange between Access Hollywood host Shaun Robinson and Dourdan was a posted on Accesshollywood.com. Although a spokesperson for Dourdan said the e-mail was not intended for publication, Access Hollywood disagrees.
“The statement from Gary Dourdan to Access Hollywood’s Shaun Robinson was clearly on the record,” said a spokesperson for the entertainment show.
The CSI lab is about to get a little less crowded.
TV Guide is reporting that cast member Gary Dourdan will be leaving CSI: Crime Scene Investigation when his contract expires next month. Although they could not pinpoint the episode when the character Warrick will make his grande exit, they estimate that it will be the season finale on May 15.
William Petersen, who plays Grissom, has renewed his contract with the show. Castmates Marg Helgenberger and George Eads are expected to do the same.
According to the TV Guide’s “Ask Ausiello,” the show’s producers are now looking for a new actor “in his late twenties to early thirties to play Ray Santoro, a ‘handsome, smart and athletic’ CSI who transfers from Henderson to join the graveyard shift at the Las Vegas crime lab.”
CSI veterans Jerry Bruckheimer and Danny Cannon are developing a pilot for their adaptation of the British series, The Eleventh Hour.
The pair will stick close to the original show’s format, which told the story of a government scientist and his female bodyguard who travel the country investigating scientific phenomenon.
Though only a pilot has been ordered so far, CBS is reportedly very committed to the project and will likely make a full 13-episode order.
The company has already picked up another Bruckheimer project this season, a show about freelance treasure hunters.
CSI: Crime Scene Investigation premieres tonight in its eighth season.
“Grey’s Anatomy” beat out “CSI” in a match of TV drama titans last night as the two shows went head-to-head for the first time.
The season premiere of ABC’s hospital drama “Grey’s Anatomy” came out on top with 25 million viewers overall in its first foray into primetime Thursdays. That’s three million more viewers than what CBS crime show “CSI” managed to pull in with its season premiere episode, which featured a musical appearance by Grammy winner John Mayer.
“Grey’s Anatomy” also won the No. 1 rating among adults aged 18 to 49, according to Nielsen Media Research. The show has grown tremendously in popularity since it debuted last year, and now boasts an additional six million viewers.
The new CBS schedule is very close to its old one – few comedies and long on Law-and-Order-CSI-type dramas.
Renewed shows include all three of the ?CSI? franchises, NCIS, Criminal Minds, Ghost Whisperer, Close to Home, Numb3rs, Cold Case, The Unit and Without a Trace.
Comedies that were renewed include ?How I Met Your Mother,? ?Two and a Half Men? and ?The New Adventures of Old Christine.? ?The King of Queens? was renewed, but not scheduled so that Kevin James can pursue a movie career with greater ease.
New shows include a comedy called ?The Class? about a group of friends who reunite at their third grade reunion and dramas, which include ?Smith,? ?Shark,? ?Jericho? and a medical drama ?3 LBS.”
Series that were permanently cancelled include ?Love Monkey,? ?Still Standing,? ? Yes, Dear,? ?Out of Practice,? ?Threshold,? and ?Courting Alex.?
CBS will move ?Without a Trace? from Thursdays at 10 p.m. to Sundays at 10 p.m., an apparent move to challenge rival network ABC.
“The Amazing Race” will move to Sundays from Tuesdays and “Survivor” will remain in its Thursdays at 8 timeslot.
