If you like dead pan comedy > September 26, 2007Posted by grhomeboy in Entertainment.
One of our regular readers, Jonathan from Britain, has sent us a short press release, which we are please to reprint below. Take a note of it please >
If you like dead pan comedy > Dan Fielding “Domestic God” is right up your street.
Dan fancies himself as the next Jamie Oliver, spliced with Domestic Goddess Nigella Lawson. His mission in life is to help 20- something guys take control of their chaotic home lives (and make himself rich and famous in the process). In his quest to be talent spotted by a TV producer, Dan has a MySpace page dedicated to his amazing domestic skills and his glamorous lifestyle. He has also created a series of clips which are basically tasters of a TV show “Domestic God” which Dan would like to make and star in.
You’ll laugh at Dan’s complete and utter arrogance, fame seeking and wannbe attitude – he could even teach a Z list celeb a lesson or two! Some people are so passionate that he is the most annoying thing to grace My Space that they have created another My Space page devoting to sending Dan up. All this “hate” activity is topped off with a disgruntled, unpaid editor who is currently uploading some rather embarrassing out-takes on You Tube.
Dan is clearly a complete product of the “I wanna be famous (and will do anything for it)” mentality, but he is also part of a riddle backed by a rather large brand…but can you guess who it is?

A previously unknown painting by the early 20th century Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani will be displayed in November in the Serbian capital, Belgrade, experts said yesterday.
“Portrait of a Man,” dating from around 1918, is owned by an unnamed Serbian collector and is authentic, said Christian Parisot, president of the Modigliani Institut Archives Legales Paris-Rome. “It took us 17 years to verify the authenticity and I can now say for certain that it is Modigliani,” Parisot said.
