Last night, an ex-con pulled a gun at a school board meeting in Panama City, Florida and took everyone hostage. At the meeting was Nadeen Yanes of ABC affiliate WMBB-TV, who filmed the entire incident. The man named Clay A. Duke (56 years old), listened to the agenda of the meeting, then walked into the room, spray pained a red “V” with a circle around it (like the TV show), then pulled out a gun…

Once the gun was out, he told everyone but the men on the school board to “hit the road…Six men stay…everyone else leave,” said Duke. The school superintendent, Bill Husfelt attempts to save the others by saying, “Will you let them go? You’re obviously upset at me, so why are they here? This isn’t worth it. This is a problem.” At that point, Duke dramatically points his weapon at Husfelt, who please, “Please don’t. Please don’t. Please.”

Shots are then fired…

James Blunt “So Far Gone” In New Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

Who knew James Blunt was still kicking around? I know, I certainly didn’t. If I were him, I would’ve stuck to doing nothing and lived off the royalties from “You’re Beautiful“. That song not only earned the British singer some serious ka-ching, but will be his lifelong free pass to sleep with anyone he wants. Have you seen some of the gorgeous women he’s dated since that song hit big time?

So Far Gone” is the second single of his third studio album, “Some Kind of Trouble“. I had no clue he released a new album, and a lead single to boot. Talk about horrible promotion. The album’s first single, “Stay The Night” became a Top 5 hit in several European countries but bombed in his native UK. I don’t even think it got a North American release. As a result, the album is selling decently enough, but well below expectations.

While the lead cut was a little too peppy for Blunt, “So Far Gone” is more in the vein of what his fans have come to expect. The Ryan Tedder-penned track is perfect for Blunt’s voice. With the single getting a promotional push in the new year and the beautifully shot music video to promote it, I expect this single should fair better than the lead cut. Check it out below.

A few days ago, Patrick listed the Top 10 Music Videos played on YouTube in 2010. That same day, the website also released another year end list- The Most Watched YouTube Viral Videos. Just to clarify, this list excludes major label music vids but includes everything else including movie trailers. The list is also comprised of parodies, indie music videos, music covers and random hilarity. I’m almost certain you’ve all seen the majority of these.

Let’s take a trip down memory lane at some of the videos that caused many of us to copy and paste the link to our Facebooks, Twitters and IMs accounts. I know I’m guilty of charged in a couple of instances.


Number of Views: 17.9 million (as of press time)

What do you get when you give millions of tween girls internet access? You get Twilight’s trailer for it’s third installment into YouTube’s Top 10 list for 2010. With “Breaking Dawn” hitting theaters in 2011, expect that trailer to make a serious run for most viewed that year.

Besides dating “The Hills” star Brody Jenner, Avril Lavigne has been pretty MIA for several years. If you take her word for it, you can blame her record label for that. Even though she completed her fourth studio album over a year ago, it has been pushed back numerous times. She blames behind-the-scenes record drama for all the delays. Originally it was supposed to hit stores in November 2009, then January 2010, with April and June dates following that. Hopefully “Goodbye Lullaby’s” new tentative release date of March 8, 2011 sticks.

The lead single from her highly-anticipated album is titled “What The Hell“. Judging by the cover, Avril hasn’t changed her image all that much. Still her teen rebel self but with a more sophisticated and polished finish. So what can we expect from the new single? According to the Canadian singer, “What The Hell” is about personal freedom and calls it her most pop track on the record. I can’t wait.

Man, I wish I would’ve had this during our camping trip this summer. If you enjoy the outdoors, you know packing for a camping weekend can be an arduous task. You want to bring the essentials along with a few luxuries, but at the same time you’re mindful that packing light is of the utmost importance. With GSI Outdoor’s “Bugaboo Camper”, you have most of your cookware and tableware contained in one amazingly compact design.

For your cooking needs, the set includes a frypan, a 3-liter pot and a 2-liter pot. Both pots come with lids that act as strainers.

It attaches with supreme ease and by only having one detachable handle, it makes packing more compact. All the cookware feature Teflon Classic nonstick cooking surfaces which speeds cleanup and also allow for even-heating, satisfying even the most discernible gourmet cook.

Ballerinas Are SO The New Vampires

In: Fashion, Nic, The Arts

It’s been a LONG TIME coming that those blood sucking children of the undead climbed off the trendy train. I’m not really anything other than neutral that this trend became popular quite honestly. But really, who hasn’t watched True Blood and loved it, (just the raunchiest show on television), and what prepubescent teen, or Tommy D, hasn’t done the Beatles cry over Twilight (my warm soft spot for those films ends at Lautner). After only a few examples, we can see that the pop culture phenomena that IS vampires, post Anne Rice, has been riding high the last couple of years. But WE ARE ON THE BRINK OF SOMETHING NEW!

The dark side of Ballet has taken over, and we can thank a few seemingly unrelated groups for the next craze. Anyone who has not seen Black Swan SHOULD. It’s an incredibly suspenseful, demented, and claustrophobic film that I can see someone (PORTMAN PORTMAN PORTMAN) thanking the Academy for very soon. But something caught my eye and hit a nerve (mixed analogies?) when I first saw the trailer for it. I thought it seemed like a slightly underplayed theme that had serious nuclear potential, and then I noticed I wasn’t the only one who thought so. The tutu is IN.

When visiting Vancouver, there are a lot of sights and sounds to take in. You can walk along the seawall, check out the Olympic cauldron, shop on Granville Island or check out the Aquarium in Stanley Park. Another adventure I recommend for everyone whether summer or winter, is a trip up to Grouse Mountain. What’s great about Grouse is that it literally is in Vancouver’s backyard. Located just a few minutes north of the Lonsdale Quay, a trip up the mountain offers a range of views and activities no matter what your mood.

There are two ways to get up to the top. One popular way in the summer months is to tackle the intense hike of the Grouse Grind. The 2.9 kilometre (1.8 mile) hike up the face of the mountain is considered to some as Mother Nature’s Stairmaster. Over 100,000 people climb the grind each year seeking that over-the-top workout that not only tests your body’s endurance but your mental stamina as well. An average hike takes approximately one and half hours but novice hikers should prepare for a two hour trek.

Ryan Reynolds & Scarlett Johansson Split

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

Okay, seriously…there are a lot of breakups going on right now. Today’s big split is Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson. Reynolds, People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive and Johansson, GQ’s Babe of the Year will be getting divorced and that they’ve actually been separated for six months. They got married a little over two years ago on September 27, 2008, in Tofino, British Columbia. The two have released a statement through their rep, stating the following:

“After long and careful consideration on both our parts, we’ve decided to end our marriage. We entered our relationship with love and it’s with love and kindness we leave it. While privacy isn’t expected, it’s certainly appreciated.”
