Its Time To Own A Nixon Watch

In: Charge It, Fashion, Tyrell

I always had a lot of friends that wore Nixon watches. They were sometimes flashy, sometimes trendy. But more often than not, they just looked good! I got my first Nixon watch in 2008. It was the slickest with a bold chrome face and camouflage strap. Later that year when I went to LA for the first time, I had a chance to check out more Nixon watches and fell in love with the brand and even more of their products.

I haven’t bought a new Nixon watch since my first one but looking at their site recently, I’ve discovered that I have a few favorites that I want to put on my Wish List this Christmas.

THE SCOUT
I love a good cuff watch and The Scout really delivers. Its clear to read face and nylon band come in 3 colors. The watch is consider to be L in size. It’s 35-42mm from the 9 to 3 o’clock position and has a 100m water resistance. The case is custom 100 meter stainless steel with hardened mineral crystal, raised bezel, and triple gasket crown. The band is custom stitched nylon webbing with double tongue stainless steel buckle. The movement is 3 hand Japanese quartz.

Top 5 “Thank You” Songs

In: Music, Patrick

It’s a slow day in the news department, being American Thanksgiving and all. It’s the one day in the U.S. where celebs spends less time suing each other and gossiping, and spends more time appreciating their bling and the people around them. Everything’s all about the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, turkey and where the hottest deals are in preparation for Black Friday – commencing at the ungodly hour of midnight tonight. Apparently stores are open for 72 hours straight? Insanity I tell you.

Anyway, in the spirit of thankfulness, I thought I’d list the Top 5 “Thank You” songs to get you in the mood. You’re welcome.

Did any of you watch ABC Primetime‘s special on “Celebrity Plastic Surgery” last night? I happened to watch it (who am I kidding, I PVR’d it) and I found it incredibly interesting and disturbing at points. Essentially, it’s about celebs that went too far with plastic surgery, and all but one regret having gone under the knife at all.

What I got from it is that these people risked their lives to alter the way they look. In some cases, they could have died. Also, plastic surgery doesn’t always go right, so you can really mess your face up royally. Take Pete Burns for example, lead singer of Dead or Alive, most well known for their hit single, “You Spin Me Round (Like A Record)”. I can’t even describe to you how messed up his face is and it all started with an injection in the lips. The host also talks to Heidi Montag, Janice Dickinson, and a plastic surgeon who finds most of his work is fixing the mistakes of other plastic surgeons. Scary stuff.

Is Lee DeWyze The Worst Idol Winner Ever?

In: Donovan, Music

Perhaps Lee DeWyze should’ve picked a different title for his debut album instead of “Live It Up“. That title certainly don’t describe his first week sales of his debut album. His first post-Idol CD not only debuted at No. 19 on the Billboard 200, but it only moved 39,000 units. That number represents the worst figure ever for an Idol winner debut. In fact, it’s even lower than any of the runner-ups as well. Diana DeGarmo previously held that record with 47,000 records.

Some might argue that the recording industry has changed since DeGarmo competed. In other words, people don’t buy full records like they used to. That may be true, but last year’s winner, Kris Allen, sold 80,000 while runner-up, Adam Lambert, moved almost 200,000. While I liked DeWyze, I didn’t feel he was the rightful winner from Season 9. Just like Allen, they were the token guitar-playing cute guys who won the hearts of the tween girls across the US. Both Lambert and Bowersox were robbed. In the end, record sales is the sweetest revenge and Glambert certainly proved that. I hope Crystal Bowersox can do the same when her debut, “Farmer’s Daughter” hits December 14th.

Will lightning strike twice for Darren Criss? For his “Glee” debut, his character Blaine’s rendition of Katy Perry’s hit, “Teenage Dream” became the show’s second biggest single ever and even cracked the Billboard Hot 100. A feat only achieved by the show’s first single, “Don’t Stop Believin‘”. Can he repeat the same magic with his second performance?

For the show’s next episode, New Directions head to sectionals to compete for a spot at regionals. Last year they won this competition by beating the slutty girls from Jane Addams Academy and the hearing-impaired kids from Haverbrook, but this year they’re up against one of their friends. Kurt (Chris Colfer) has transferred to Dalton Academy and joined the Warblers for the upcoming face-off. They will perform a cover of Train’s hit song, “Hey, Soul Sister“. Get your first look at their cover below.

Man Crush: Danny Young

In: Donovan, TV Shows

In honor of my American brothers and sistas celebrating Thanksgiving Day today, I chose someone you’d all want to “gobble gobble” up on this festive day. Super sexy Brit, Danny Young, has won the honor of being my weekly man crush. The 24-year-old is best known for his role of Warren Baldwin on the popular UK soap, “Coronation Street“.

While growing up in Harlow, Essex he dreamed of becoming a footballer (soccer for you Yanks). It wasn’t until he was discovered, while singing karaoke in Spain, that he entertained the idea of a career in acting. His first big break came on the popular gritty BBC drama, “Out of Control“. He parlayed that role into other shows including “Kerching!“, “Vice“, and “Wall of Silence“. His performances won him several accolades include a Best Young Actors Award.

Earlier this year, he participated on the popular reality show, “Dancing on Ice” which pairs up celebrities with professional skaters. Early oddsmakers had him favored to win, but due to a prop mishap, he was eliminated tenth with his professional partner, Frankie Poultney.

After topping the charts two weeks ago with “What’s My Name?“, Rihanna reclaimed the top spot from Far East Movement with her lead cut, “Only Girl (In The World)” from her “Loud” album. It’s the first time in Billboard Hot 100 history, that a lead single hit No. 1 after the second single did. “Only Girl” is the Bajan artist’s ninth No. 1 track.

Proving she’s a singles artist and not so much a record artist, Rihanna’s first week sales of her latest CD, “Loud” debuted in third place behind Susan Boyle and “America’s Got Talent’s” Jackie Evancho’s respective albums. Despite all the hype, Rihanna only moved 207,000 copies of “Loud”. As low as that number sounds, it still marks her best U.S. chart sales debut to date. She’ll have to haul some major ass if she intends of beating her previous best effort when “Good Girl, Gone Bad” sold 2,616,000 in the US.

As mentioned earlier, Rihanna is the first artist ever to have her lead single top the charts after her official second single. “Only Girl” is her ninth single overall and her fourth in 2010. It makes her the first female artist ever to hit the top spot four times in a calendar year. The last artist, male or female, to achieve this feat was Usher in 2004.

Boo, I hate recap episodes, but what can you do. This one actually wasn’t half bad, considering this season of Survivor is full of drams anyway. As we look back, we recall when tribes were split as young vs. old, how alliances were formed and how power struggles played out . How quickly I forgot about Jimmy Johnson and Jimmy T, who was totally jealous of the attention his celeb Jimmy twin was getting. Or how Holly went crazy and ditched Dan’s expensive shoes in the ocean. We also saw Marty’s rise to power on the old tribe, as well as Brenda and Sash on the younger tribe.

Several people have been eliminated from the game, and nine people remain in the million dollar mission. After watching the recap, we get a little more insight and a bit of a reminder about how each of these individuals got to where they did. I’ve listed the rundown on each of the remaining competitors as to what their strategy has been and what’s working for them.
