Ellen: What’s On Cee Lo’s Lap
With The Voice judge Cee Lo Green as Ellen’s guest today, everyone is excited about his appearance. That’s because Ellen loves to play What’s On Cee Lo’s Lap, which she’ll be doing with Cee Lo, live later in the show.
Ellen: Awesome Album Covers
But first, Ellen shared some awesome album cover art, featuring the most dated and awkward album cover photography known to man. If you’ve sent one in, you never know when it could be on the show.
- Ken By Request Only is straight out of the ‘70s, featuring sculpted sideburns, mustache, and a dead eyed stare.
- Thank You For The Dove is presumably religious in nature, and features a middle aged man holding a dove in the palms of his hands.
- Just Patty features a woman in a red ensemble leaning against a tree in a wooded area. Album covers of the mid- to late-20th century were totally weird.
More album covers are available on Ellen’s iPhone app. I wonder if the audience is checking out her app on their new tablets.
Ellen: Titanic in 3D
The 1997 epic Titanic was recently re-released in 3D, and Ellen DeGeneres showed a silly video of herself as a star of the film. She explained that her role was cut from the original film.
Have you heard about the families of Titanic victims who have embarked on a commemorative cruise? I’m afraid that they are tempting fate and something is bound to go wrong in recreating this journey.
Ellen shared the clip, which was edited to include her in the famous nude painting scene. “Holy tugboats,” Ellen said as Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet went through the iconic scene. Of course, the nudity was cut out, since this is a daytime family show.
Painter Ellen made jokes and gave posing suggestions for Kate Winslet, humming “My Heart Will Go On” as she painted. Eventually she whipped out a can of spray paint to really give her portrait some texture. But instead she smelled the paint fumes and crumpled up her work, before starting again.
Her stick figure painting was not very good, but it certainly captured the memorable assets featured in the original cinematic scene.
What do you think of all these movies being re-released in 3D? It seems like a way for studios to rake in money by overcharging people for a movie they’ve already seen. I’m not a fan, but I’d love to know what you think in the comments section.
Ellen: Classic Joke Monday
It’s Classic Joke Monday. Here is the stodgy joke Ellen dusted off for her audience, that all the third graders will be chuckling about tomorrow.
Where do you find a down and out octopus?
On squid row.
