Gary Coleman Dead

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Update: Gary Coleman passed away today. TMZ has reported that Gary’s wife, Shannon, made the decision to pull life support early this AM. He died at 12:05 PM MST of a intracranial hemorrhage.

The 42 year old former Diff’rent Strokes star was injured in his home earlier this week (fell and hit his head) and things have taken a turn for the worse. Coleman was hospitalized a few days ago, but after suffering from intercranial hemorrhages, he has slipped into a coma and is now on life support.

The manager, John Alcantar, of the hospital where he is being treated has released the following update:

“As of mid-morning on May 27, Mr. Coleman was conscious and lucid. By early afternoon, Mr. Coleman was slipping in and out of consciousness and his condition worsened.

We are saddened to announce that since mid-afternoon, Mountain Time, on May 27, 2010, Mr. Coleman has been unconscious and on life support.

At this critical moment, we can only ask for your thoughts and prayers for Gary to make a speedy and full recovery.”

Coleman’s always had to keep an eye on his health. He has a congenital kidney disease “caused by focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (an autoimmune destruction and alteration of the kidney), which halted his growth at an early age, leading to a small stature (4 ft 8 in; 1.42 m),” as stated by Wiki.

Musical Review: Beauty and the Beast

In: Patrick, Random Reads, The Arts

While in Edmonton last weekend, I had the opportunity to check out Beauty and the Beast, showing at the Citadel Theatre – twice! I hadn’t gone to a musical for quite some time and certainly realized what I had been missing out on after watching this one.

The costumes, set, and special affects were incredible, but most importantly, the performances were superb! Amazing acting, singing, choreography & dance, and several “laugh out loud” moments. Belle, played by Josee Boudreau, was absolutely beautiful and she had such a beautiful voice. She looked exactly like what I’d picture the real life version of Belle to look like. Her father Maurice (Glenn Nelson) was perfect as the oddball inventor who would do anything for his daughter. The Beast was played by the incredibly talented Rejean Cournoyer. Not only did he give a stellar performance, but his costume was unreal! I mean real – it looked so good!

I’m starting to write about these quite a bit – and that’s not a good thing!

There was an earthquake this morning in the South Pacific – a magnitude 7.4, resulting in a Tsunami warning for the surrounding area. The Tsunami centre has stated:

“An earthquake of this size has the potential to generate a destructive tsunami that can strike coastlines in the region near the epicenter within minutes to hours.”

The epicenter of the earthquake was 133 miles (244 km) NW of Santo on the island of Vanuatu. Sheesh, Survivor‘s been to all the Earthquake/Tsunami hot spots! Vanuatu is on the “Ring of Fire,” a part of an area that has tons of volcanoes and oceanic trenches surrounding the Pacific Ocean.

Yay for living in the Ring of Fire. I mean…boo :(

Well, while she takes her hiatus from Gossip Girl, Taylor Momsen’s (AKA Little J) rock star version of herself begins to turn heads with her first single & music video from her band The Pretty Reckless. I gotta say she has a much more mature voice that I had imagined and well, she’s really good. She’s the second Gossip Girl to enter the music scene, following in the footsteps of her storyline predecessor Leighton Meester (AKA Blair Waldorf). A much darker and edgier sound than Meester’s pop candy, I am definitely interested to see how the rest of the album sounds and how she does in the music industry!

I love how the two arch enemies in Gossip Girl both enter the music industry – and in my opinion, both of their musical persona’s are reflections of their TV characters.

Said in the “Gossip Girl voice”: Careful Little J, as you go the real world of sex, drugs and rock & roll, you may find The Pretty Reckless to be not very pretty after all….xoxo Gossip Girl.

Edmonton, Alberta in Canada is the home to North America’s largest shopping mall, and fifth largest in the world. It was actually the world’s largest mall for a whopping 23 years until 2004! There are over 800 stores & services at your disposal in this mall, parking for over 20,000 vehicles, and over 28 million visitors each year!

It’s more than just a mall. It’s “The Greatest Indoor Show On Earth,” as they put it. So much to keep you busy and entertained, and certainly something for everyone. When I was younger, WEM was a destination for our family. I have always been a kid that enjoys the water so naturally a giant wavepool and waterpark was a big draw for me! And what child doesn’t like an amusement park: Galaxyland! Rides for all ages, and an incredible roller coaster that will leave you thirsty for more!

Check out a video of my experience at WEM after the jump…

Alejandro Music Video: La Coacha Style

In: Patrick, Videos


La Coacha takes on Lady Gaga’s latest single, Alejandro in her just released music video spoof. It’s actually pretty brilliant. Not only does she make fun of Gaga and the religious paraphernalia now available to worship her, she touches upon similarities to Madonna and Ace of Base – and even has a little cameo from Jenny Berggren from Ace of Base at the end!

The actual video for Gaga’s Alejandro is still coming soon. She recently performed the single on American Idol. The only thing I’ve seen so far in terms of a sneak peek to her upcoming video, is the still below:

On a total sidenote, while looking for some more info on Alejandro, I read that the health problems that Gaga has encountered since her Monster’s Ball tour may actually be Lupus – the killer disease that took the life of her aunt.

She has reportedly been undergoing medical tests, but nothing is confirmed. “I’m very connected to my aunt, Joanne, who died of lupus. It’s a very personal thing.”

Hopefully it’s not that! Yikes! On a lighter note, check out the parody!

Heidi Montag has said that she wanted to replace Megan Fox on Transformers, so naturally she took to her Twitter to audition for the part. You know, because that’s the normal process.

She sends Michael Bay a message on Twitter to check out a video of her in combat to…prove she has what it takes? This chick doesn’t get that no one takes her and her lunatic husband seriously. I think out of spite, they should hire Lauren Conrad to take Megan Fox’s spot. But alas, today it has been confirmed that it’s going to be Victoria Secret Model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (pictured above, right). Thank God…not that Montag Monster even had a chance.

Check out Heidi’s audition video. The only guns should she should be in charge of are her boobs. Wait…those are about to pop after her Transformation…on second thought…

Daniel Craig…Gay? Bi?

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick, Totally GAY!

Double O…7 …M.G!! Although not the most reliable source, the National Enquirer is reporting that Craig was seen making out with some hot man candy at Roosterfish bar in Venice. HOT! An eyewitness in the parking lot claims the following:

“It was definitely Daniel Craig, and he was most certainly making out with a guy. Daniel kissed his friend on the lips. It was an open-mouth passionate French kiss. In fact, Daniel held the guy’s head in his hands and pull him in for the kiss!”

After he was aware he was being watched, he apparently broke away from the guy right away. Another source added:

“When Daniel and his friend walked in, the looked like any other upscale gay couple checking out the scene.
He rubbed Daniel’s leg and shoulder while they talked, and Daniel didn’t seem to mind.

At first, I thought Daniel may have come in with his gay friend to check out the live music. But when they started dancing together, I though, ‘This is more than just two friends out for drinks.’”

According to Wiki, “In 1992, Craig married Scottish actress Fiona Loudon, with whom he has a daughter, Ella. However, the marriage ended in a divorce in 1994. After his divorce he was in a seven-year relationship with German actress Heike Makatsch and is currently in a relationship with film producer Satsuki Mitchell.” Cover up?

Maybe it was like this? Check out Daniel Craig’s gay kiss (after the 4 minute mark) from the movie Infamous.
