Mark Wahlberg & Top Gear...

Watching the hugely popular British car show, Top Gear currently with my man, Eric. He's a huge fan of this show and downloads the most current episode weekly.

Mark Wahlberg was tonight's celebrity guest. He was there to promote his newest film, Max Payne. The guys always have their celebrity guest take a couple of laps in their reasonably priced car, usually an average 4 door sedan. He didn't do all that bad on his lap. And his interview was pretty funny. Mark talked about how during his stint in prison, he got tons of crap from the other inmates when his brother Donnie was performing on TV with the New Kids on the Block. He made a crack at Tom Cruise regarding the crazy one's affiliation with the Church of Scientology. Pretty funny stuff!

I'm not much of a gear head, but I love watching the show! The hosts (Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson & James May) test drive cars, are put to wacked out challenges, interview celebrities, etc. They aren't afraid to say if the car they're reviewing/test driving is utter crap. :)

The show is also on TV. Here in Cincy, it's on the BBC America channel, but the shows are about a season behind.

I dunno Chelsea. I think the coolness emanates from the funky cool theme because I certainly don't think I'm in any way cool. :)
