Internet Mysteries: The Sandra Bullock Baby, Trent Reznor, and Phantom Wes Anderson

Unsolved Mysteries logoThe Internet has gone ripe with partially-solved, unsolved, and apparently fully-solved mysteries over the last 24 hours: Trent Reznor’s new mystery band, The Awl plays Where’s Waldo with Wes Anderson, and the real unsolved mystery behind Sandra Bullock’s baby.

Rolling Stone reports that Trent Reznor is possibly a wizard behind the curtain of the new project How To Destroy Angels, announced yesterday. The site speculates that the band is a side project of Reznor and wife Mariqueen Maandig, formerly of West Indian Girl, but can neither confirm nor disconfirm this speculation.

The Awl has a fun story about Cindy Adams, the New York Post gossip columnist, written by Simon Dumenco, who happens to have met Adams during his tenure at NY Mag. Mysteriously, the photo of Adams they run with the story, captioned, “Cindy Working” pictures her talking to an unnamed gesticulating man in a suit and tie who is cut off in the photo just above the mouth. To solve one internet Mystery, the man in the photo is Wes Anderson, who I happen to have met during my stint as his assistant. I’d know that judging scowl anywhere. (Just kidding, Wes.)

And of course, People Magazine announced that Sandra Bullock has adopted a very cute, if kinda pudgy baby who was kept a secret during Oscar season and named Louis Bardo Bullock. Does the name Bardo have to do with living as a secret baby for these last months?

However, the real mystery on this one: apparently Bullock and estranged husband Jesse James’s children, “including Sunny, 6, Jesse Jr., 12, and Chandler, 15 – were essential in keeping the adoption a secret.” How exactly you loop a 6 year-old kid into conspiring to hide the identity of a secret adoptive baby is anyone’s guess. Either I was one seriously remedial 6-year old, or this Sunny kid is a real precocious sociopath.

  2. More importantly, have you seen pics of the baby? It looks really pissed.

  3. More white guilt? Are there no white children to adopt? Are there no black parents wanting to adopt? I think “trends” are scary-especially if they are about children and animals. I’m not saying that Sandra won’t love the baby, but I think too often these stars do these things to make themselves look “cool”…Madonna, Angelina, etc.

  4. Oh my god…you sick racist people giving Sandra a hard time because her baby isnt white. You have such huge chips on your shoulders that you dont even think of that poor girl enduring fertility treatments trying in vain to get pregnant. You should be ashamed of yourselves. The reason she got a black baby is because she selected “ANY” on the race section of the adoption form. She just wants to be a mama…get off it and quit your racist yap-flappin! That baby is gonna be blessed with both love and money. Lucky little guy. Hes got that “tude” in his face cuz he is tellin you to lay off his mama!
