You all know that it IS their birthday this week, don't you? I couldn't help posting that fact.

What I find amazing about these two cherubs is the fact that they went from playing the same infant character on what could argueably have been one of the worst TV shows to ever survive more than one season on network TV, to millionaire entertainment tycoons before they made it out of Jr High. All this has happened without them ever staring in a single successful wide release feature movie, or scoring a single hit song on the pop charts. Their entire media empire rests on a never ending stream of low grade made for video short films.

In that sense one could compare them to porn stars. They star in 60 to 90 minute long, low budget, low production quality installments that are shot on video tape. They essentially play themselves. Their stories always entail some extremely weak and unoriginal plot that is secondary to the fact that they are the center and main point of the film. The film goes straight to video and is bought up and rented by hoards of rabid fans who can't wait to see their the next installment. On top of all that, almost all their scenes are girl-girl.

Go figure.

Now, add to this comparison the even more distrubing fact that at least some small number of their rabid fans are also grown men who rent a lot of porn, and you've got one bizarre situation. What other teen or preteen entertainment star can claim that? Britney? Maybe, but she's also a "pop" star. Her mug is all over the media. She dresses like a sexy schoolgirl or a hooker and she overtly presents herself as a sex object to sell records. Mary Kate and Ashley don't do any of Britney's grinding and booty shaking on camera. Their overt messages are intentionally tame, and suited for immediate release on the disney channel or the PAX.

So, here you've got two 5' tall, 16 year old made for video stars who might just be richer than P Diddy, Jacko and J Lo put together. Who ever would have thought that Bob Sagget could do such wonders for someones' careers?

Here's a good site if you want to see what's up with them and hear some of their original music! http://www.olsentwinfans.com

Scott, you scare me sometimes. Just curious though: has Larry Flynt made them an offer yet for their 18th birthday party?

I heard they did a cover of Weezer's "Island in the Sun" in their last "film", something about a holiday.

I don't know about Larry Flint talking to them. However, the Republican chairman of the Impeachment committee that went after Clinton four years ago has filed a lawsuit asking for $30 million dollars from Bill Clinton, James Carville and Larry Flint. He claims that they defamed him in public and caused "distress".

I think Howard Stern is keeping a Mary-Kate and Ashley 18th birthday countdown clock. Every once in a while the days and hours remaining are mentioned on his show.

That's it, Jake - this site has finally gone far enough. I come here to get away from the Olsen Twins and the Sarah Michelle Gellars of the world. Why must you betray me so?

Ok, now YOU'VE gone too far. Mary-Kate and Ashley aren't even close to being in the same league as Sarah. Sarah is a goddess, damn it!

I have to go now. I just remembered something that I need to do......
