Fly on the Wall 

Hard Again

Three 6 Mafia isn't getting a lot of love for their new MTV reality show Adventures in HollyHood. "I guess everyone has to have a moment like this, a real soul-destroying glimpse at a favorite artist losing the plot and making terrible decisions for even worse reasons," Tom Breihan wrote in an article for The Village Voice titled "Let's Never Mention the Three 6 Mafia Reality Show Again."

"Since their shocking Oscar win last year, they've grabbed every crass mass-exposure opportunity that's come their way, popping up on My Super Sweet 16 and Studio 60 and every other TV show that would have them," Breihan continued on his way to declaring HollyHood a modern-day Beverly Hillbillies. "But it's still tough for me to describe just how much despair and humiliation I felt watching last night's premiere. ... If you've ever admired anything about this group, do yourself a favor and forget that it exists."

Writing for online site Blogcritics, Memphis media critic Richard Thompson was even less kind. "You're just supposed to sit there jaw-dropped ... and just listen to the music, [and] see these 'gangstas' sambos dance, go crazy and pimp themselves — for Hollywood." Yowch!

Pau Wow

According to AOL Sports, Pau Gasol really, really, really wants out of Memphis. "What I'm not going to do is stay on a team that's just in the hands of God," Gasol told the Spanish news media. "I have to think about another direction and playing for another team." Clearly Pau is under a fairly common delusion: He's not the first person to mistake Jerry West for God.
