Previously on America’s Next Top Model, Ann was finally dethroned as Queen Wannabe. After five consecutive first photos, she lost because she was less of a man than Liz. Seriously. How did Liz become the first girl to knock Queen Ann of Tyrantsylvania off the top? Isn’t she the same girl that Mr. Jay has been bitching about all cycle long? How did that happen? Oh right… she got to fugly it up as John Galiano. Gurl, you win ‘cause you’re a man. How’s that for a compliment! Can Ann bounce back? Will this year’s twist be tucks for all the dumbo ears flying around? I’m looking at you Esther! Who will be eliminated tonight?
OMG. Did anyone watch Modern Family tonight? I died. Mitchell in the SpiderMan suit! Epic. Oh… and while we’re off topic… is anyone watching Nikita? I’m loving it. I kinda wish Nikita still had that hot super spy guy tied to her bed. He was hot. Nice undies too. Now back to our regularly scheduled CW crap fest that we can’t live without.
Every so often I stumble across a video that is so amazing I feel the need to share it with as many people that I can possibly reach. C-Mon & Kypski’s latest music video endeavor for their tune More is Less is the perfect example. The tricky part is, the video I just watched most likely won’t be the same video you see when you finally get around to clicking on the link below and eventually hitting play. No, I’m not going to provide you with a broken link that doesn’t work and results in frustration. Nor am I going to provide you with a link that has any random online code/algorithms that pulls up one of x number of videos shot for this particular tune.
This video is truly revolutionary. The band decided they wanted their fans (and pretty much anyone who was interested in 1 millisecond of fame) to have a part in their video. This ‘interactive’ video was created by designers Jonathan Puckey and Roel Wouters and technically uploaded to the band’s website. It’s ridiculously simple to get in on the action and integrate your face into their performance…
Ryan Kwanten, is leaving the vamps, werewolves and crazies of Bon Temps and tackling one of the most infamous serial killers in history. The Australian hottie has signed on to play cult leader Charles Manson. Manson lead the Manson Family to commit a series of bloody and brutal murders during the late 60s. The as-yet-untitled project will be directed by Brad Anderson.
Currently Manson is serving seven counts of prison life sentences at Corcoran State Prison in California. One of his many victims include Sharon Tate, then wife of director Roman Polanski. He was working in London at the time of Tate’s murder at their home. Manson’s story has been told several times before in various documentaries and movies. I wonder if Anderson’s film will bring any new insight or revelations.
Two people went home last week (Yve and Kelly B) after Marty didn’t play his idol as his tribe expected. Because of the number of votes, Marty knows that Jane voted for him so he confronts Jane. All she does is laugh, not confirming or denying the vote. Jill and Marty still don’t have the numbers in their favor. I was actually surprised that Brenda and Marty didn’t go at it when they got back to camp. For the other tribe, the word is that Alina is apparently the next target.
Time for the Reward Challenge. One member of each tribe acts as the defender, standing on a perch in the water protecting a net behind them. One by one, each team will try to throw a ball past the defender into the net. The first team to five points wins reward. The reward is that the winning tribe will get a farm experience the next morning as well as a traditional breakfast consisting of tortillas, eggs, cheese, and milk that they’ll collect from cow. La Flor sits Jane out for the challenge. La Flor chooses Fabio as their defender, while Espada picks Chase. In between rounds, Fabio stays in the water a bit longer and says “I’m gonna pee real quick,” so that he can focus on the game. Hilarious – I might have done the same but I don’t think I would have announced it. When I gotta pee, I gotta pee. Naonka then scores on him and brings the score to 4-2 for her team – Espada. Jill goes next and she scores on Chase for La Flor, bringing their score up to 3 now. Benry goes next, for what could be the winning point…and he nails it. Espada wins reward.
While AskMen.com isn’t exactly the be-all-end-all of polls and stats as far as the American man is considered, they do have a pretty good site and a high readership so I’m willing to give them some credit as they boldly proclaim the results of an extensive poll of over half a million of their readers, titling Jon Stewart of “The Daily Show”: The Most Influential Man. Running 14 years (god, I remember when it started; I am old), this once-college-campus gossiped about comedic news show has become a ratings bonanza, but more importantly it has garnered the trust of throngs of TV-viewers. To me, that’s the most important thing.
In a time where dozens of the world’s countries control the votes, the information released to and the lives of their people; where America itself is slowly becoming brainwashed by an ever-more watched, right wing controlled, propaganda machine AKA FOX News, it’s not just a breath of fresh air but a boon that’s maintaining the sanity of a nation in turmoil. It may sound a bit hyperbolic, but truly this man has changed the face of news in the US and set new standards for other programs to aspire to. And, it’s for that that this once stand up comedian and writer of basal skits has captured the attention of millions.
No wonder Rihanna was a no-show at Katy Perry’s wedding extravaganza in India this past weekend, the singer is in heavy promotion mode for her upcoming album. Considering she’s Perry’s BFF and the one who planned her bachelorette party, everyone expected her to attend. Well, everyone except Perry who knew Rihanna’s attendance was always iffy given her album drops on November 10. She’s still putting the final touches on her “Loud” CD before its release.
Part of that promotion train is Rihanna gracing the cover of Marie Claire UK. The fashion magazine enlisted the “Only Girl (In The World)” singer for their holiday issue and final one of 2010. The cover and inside spread showcases Rihanna looking gorgeous and glamorous. Her fiery red locks are complimented by white, silver and pink outfits. My favorite is the one where she’s dressed up in feathers. She’s pure perfection.
Just like Grokster and Napster before it, LimeWire is now being put to rest and will be buried in the file sharing graveyard within the next 14 days. Five months ago, the most popular p2p file sharing site lost a copyright infringement lawsuit filed by the record industry. Now, a federal judge has issued an injunction against them that will essentially put them out of business. U.S. district judge Kimba Wood in New York issued the permanent injunction yesterday, ordering LimeWire to disable the “searching, downloading, uploading, file trading, and/or file distribution functionality” of the software it distributed to users. The judge also stated that LimeWire must notify its workers, investors, and customers of the injunction and also ordered the site to file a progress report in meeting all conditions of the order within 14 days. Wowza. That’s a tight deadline. In a statement, LimeWire stated that this is a “sad occasion”.
Chief Executive George Searle said that the injunction only applies to the file sharing aspect of the company, but despite all of this, the company will still remain open for business. What? Really? What is LimeWire possibly going to come out with that can compete with today’s music industry? I think Rhapsody and iTunes pretty much have the music paid-for downloading on lock.
The two that we know as Serena van der Woodsen and Dan Humphrey on Gossip Girl, have confirmed that they have split in real life. Blake Lively (23) and Penn Badgely (24) have been dating for three years and broke up in mid-September. They are still really good friends and so far it hasn’t affected the dynamic on set.
Hmm, maybe this helps explain why Blake Lively and Ryan Gossling were seen hanging out late in Disneyland earlier this month. I imagine it must have been a trying year for the two, with Penn promoting Easy A in L.A. while Blake was doing the same for The Town on the East Coast.
