Kanye West tops the charts

"...as human beings we are capable of making sense of situations based on the thinnest slice of experience."

Malcolm Gladwell, author of Blink and The Tipping Point.


AND THE WINNER IS...: In the contest between pop stars with overinflated egos, a penchant for public temper tantrums, and the occasional freak out, Kanye West has convincingly smacked down Guns N Roses among CD buyers. Meanwhile Taylor Swift -- who by all accounts does not have an overinflated ego, a penchant for temper tantrums or the occasional freak out -- is getting ready for her 19th birthday party. The Thin Slices staff eagerly awaits our invitation.

GIVE A GUY A BREAK: Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy is one of those dudes people work themselves into a frothy hatred over that's completely out of line with reality. Details magazine headlined its feature on him, "Is it time to stop hating Pete Wentz." Yes, we at Thin Slices say: stop hating him.


HE HAS A PLAN: Everyone needs a reason to get up in the morning. Brad Pitt: upper-lip hair. And, "It's political." Go out and vote. World leaders say "get in line little man."

MORE MEMORY: Wiki's master list of Christmas Specials allows us to organize memory lane. From Invader Zim to John Denver and the Muppets to Grey's Anatomy. Jingle Bells. (KC)


SEARCH FOR INTELLIGENCE: Britney Spears more interesting than Barack Obama?? Yes, Yahoo declares. Just so that we're clear on which pop tart, yes, this pop tart. (KC)

TO THE ER: Is Parminder Nagra expecting her first child? The ER star is linked to photographer beau, James Stenson. (KC)


TUMULTUOUS II: Will Whitney Houston and ex-hubby Bobby Brown hitch up for round two? Whitney has a new disc, needs the tumult. (KC)

FLOATER: Trace Adkins joined Varsity Fanclub, Miley Cyrus, David Archuletta, Darius Rucker for Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. Adkins floated through "You're Gonna Miss This" with family in tow. It was just last week that The Blade's Brian Dugger spoke with Adkins about the new disc and "All I Ask For Anymore." (KC)
