Oh no. This is very hard for me to admit but I may have recently come across a project/expose about McDonald’s and it has drastically shaped the way I think about their food. Yes, I saw Super Size Me and to be frank it simply made me hungry and crave fast food (I jest as I actually haven’t seen the movie).

On April 10, 2010 New Yorker Sally Davies bought a hamburger Happy Meal from McDonalds and placed it on her living room coffee table uncovered for six months. After 180 days (yes 180!) there were no visible signs of change, mold, odor, worms or decomposition. NONE! I have literally eaten food that looks worse when fresh than what this meal looks like after six months. Ugh.

Her six month trial wrapped up this past weekend and she compiled a video of time lapse photographs with date stamps tracking the progress. To fellow McDonald’s lover and cast member, Tommy, I am truly sorry. It scares me to think of what a chicken nugget would look like in a similar test scenario…

“Maniston is played out. From now on it’s just Jennifer Aniston.”
Wow, this is quite interesting and well, commendable on his part. Perez Hilton has posted a video on YouTube this morning, titled “I’m Going To Be Doing Things Differently“. He goes on to explain that since all of the gay suicides have been occurring as a result of bullying, he wants to be part of the solution and not part of the problem.

He recognizes that people look at him as one of the biggest bullies out there, and I would have to agree with that. So, he says instead of going for the cheap joke, he is going to try harder to be more clever and not just well, plain mean with what he posts on his site. He says he doesn’t care if it affects his traffic, but he’s hoping that it doesn’t. The change starts today.

“From The Heart! Please watch this heartfelt, sincere message in its entirety,” says Perez Hilton. Perez also chats with Ellen Degeneres today about this announcement as well.

With “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” only a month away, the Warner Bros. PR team is kicking into high gear. The studio just released four new posters to promote part one of the final chapter of the Harry Potter franchise. Once again, the one-sheets are dark and menacing, with each sporting the ominous tag line, “Trust no one“.

The posters feature four pairings, all looking into the distance from various locations. Ron & Hermione look longingly from behind a tree, while a dolled-up Harry and Hermione stare behind a half-open subway car door. The other two feature villains from the flick. One has Bellatrix and Lucius Malfoy looking sinisterly from behind prison, while Snatchers and Fenrir snarl through the flap of a tent. Check out all four promos after the jump.

In this week’s fitness tip, Mike shakes things up by talking about the benefits to working out on/with an unstable surface, such as a Bosu Ball.

Of course, it’s important that you make sure that you master each exercise on the a solid surface (aka. the ground/floor) first, before you graduate to a Bosu, or the likes. You also want to make sure you do exercises bilaterally first (both legs), before progressing to doing the exercises unilaterally (one leg). Lastly, doing exercises stationary, before doing dynamic exercises that involve movement.

It’s not a rumor, Glee’s newest wispy blond hair hunk IS dating one Hollywood’s most famous offspring. Rumer Willis, daughter of Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, was seen holding hands and kissing Chord Overstreet at an event this past week in Beverly Hills. The two looked quite friendly and couldn’t take their eyes off each other. If these two procreated, imagine their kids if they had Rumer’s big chin, and Chord’s big mouth. Yowza…

Rumer recently broke up with her boyfriend of two years, Micah Alberti just last week and went to Las Vegas to drown her sorrows. There, she was seen talking to Chord for a few minutes before the two parted ways. Obviously, they inconspicuously hooked up on the down low that night. This new relationship has “REBOUND” written all over it.

Taylor Swift Debuts “Back To December”

In: Donovan, Music

If you follow my music posts, you’ve probably figured out I love my female R&B singers and dance music. What you probably didn’t know is I’m a closet country music fan. When Taylor Swift first came out, I didn’t understand all the buzz around her. I mean come on, the tart was stealing thunder from my beloved Carrie Underwood. But just like the rest of the world, I began to appreciate Swift and started to love her songs, which brings me to this post.

Back to December” is the second promotional single Swift is releasing to promote her upcoming album “Speak Now” which hits stores on October 25. I’m not ashamed to say it, but I love the slower track. For once it’s not all about fairytales, rainbows or sunshine. Our little Taylor is growing up. The ballad talks about letting a good relationship slip through your fingers and the regret that eventually follows. In fact, Swift even admitted the song is dedicated to someone whom she had done wrong.

“The person I wrote this song about deserves this,” she said. “This is about a person who was incredible to me, just perfect to me in a relationship, and I was really careless with him…This is a song full of words I would say to him.”

Could that someone be Taylor Lautner, a Jonas Brother or someone else? My hunch says it’s Lautner, but you never know. Swift wrote all of the songs on the album without any co-writers. The haunting instrumentation on the track gives the song that extra dramatic punch. Even though it’s a bit heavy and introspective, I can see it being a commercial hit.

After three stellar episodes in a row, could “Glee” pull off another outstanding show? While it wasn’t one of my all-time favorites, “Duets” had a few standout moments. The fourth episode was jam packed with musical numbers, seven in fact, and introduced a couple new romances. Sadly both Sue and Puck were missing from the episode. Due to a run-in with the law for stealing an ATM machine, Puck was MIA because he was holed up in juvie. Hopefully he’s experiencing some man-on-man action while there. The “Other Asian” finally “sang” and Artie got his cherry popped.

Newbie Sam (Chord Overstreet) finally joined New Directions causing both Kurt, Quinn and my hormones to go into overdrive. There were more scenes of him shirtless than not. Even though he looks like the love child of Macaulay Culkin and The Joker, I found myself oddly attracted to him because of his smokin’ hot torso.

Will Schuester’s assignment for New Directions this week was to perform a duet with another Gleek. Whichever duo had the best performance would score a dinner for two at Breadsticks. Dayum, I want to go. After some serious negotiations and ulterior motives, the following duos were formed: Mercedes & Santana; Tina & Mike; Rachel & Finn; Quinn & Sam; Artie & Brittany; and Kurt & Kurt??? Check out the videos below to see how each pairing fared.
