Skating With The Stars: Meet The Cast

In: Patrick, TV Shows

Just went you think all the dancing reality shows are done and you can take your shoes off and put your feet up, you’re wrong…and it’s time to lace up and put your skates on. This sounds like a recipe for disaster! Of course what the stars put themselves through on Dancing With The Stars is hard on their bodies, but I think the likelihood of serious injury with inexperienced figure skating is a lot higher, no? Oh, by the way, this show is not to be confused with “Skating With Celebrities” or “Stars on Ice”.

Yesterday at the end of DWTS, the cast of the new spinoff, “Skating With The Stars” (or SWTS I guess it will be called) was announced. Now, shall we break the ice and meet the stars?

Bethenny Frankel

About: This woman has made a career out of Reality TV shows, which is amazing. It goes back to when she was a contestant on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart (she came in 2nd), which let to “The Real Housewives of New York,” and finally Bravo’s “Bethenny Getting Married?” Aside from being a part of all of these TV shows, she is a chef and runs a small health food empire.

Big Burly Men Do Bieber Dance For AMA Promo Vid

In: Donovan, Music, Videos

Apparently it’s all about creating a viral video to promote awards show this year. First MTV’s “European Music Awards” enlisted Eva Longoria Parker to film a hilarious rap video, now ABC is jumping on the bandwagon and releasing a video of their own. Instead of featuring a hot spicy sexy Latina to sell the award shows, the “2010 American Music Awards” are relying on big burly men at a leather bar. Works for me.

The video begins with two tattooed bikers fighting over which song to play on the jukebox. Kesha’s “Tik Tok” or Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream“. Just when you weren’t sold it was a gay bar, the cherry on top comes when someone interjects and selects a completely different song- Justin Bieber’s “Baby“. Of course the next natural thing occurs, the big burly mean break out into a choreographed dance routine. LOL.

Pink Debut’s “Raise Your Glass” Music Video

In: Donovan, Music

While self empowerment is the current rage in pop songs today seen in Taylor Swift’s (Mean) and Ke$ha’s (We R Who We R), Pink has been preaching that message for throughout most of her career. The colorful singer debuted her latest music video for “Raise Your Glass” on her website. It showcases a variety of vignettes showing the badass singer in various forms. At times she’s a Sumo wrestler, bullfighter, skater girl, gangbanger and other incarnations. All and all, the video like song, is about the underdogs and that we should raise our glasses to being different. Cheers.

Long-time collaborator Dave Meyers, directed the music video. It’s the lead cut from her forthcoming greatest hits album. One of the scenes in the video is based on one of Pink’s real-life experiences. During an interview for MTV, she told the inspiration behind the gay wedding depicted in her video. Here’s what the singer said:

“I threw my best friend’s wedding in my backyard — she is gay and she married her wife, and it was absolutely beautiful. At the end of it, her mom said, ‘Why can’t this be legal?’ and started crying. It was just the most heartbreaking thing I’ve ever seen, so that’s why I’m doing it in my video.”

Last night, the 200th show celebration was star studded and the guest judges brought the highest scores of the season. Brandy held on to her title of top dog but Jennifer Grey fought back to tie her at the top of the leader board. Bristol and Mark are back at the bottom of the board. Will we be shocked by another elimination or is Bristol back on a flight home to Alaska? We begin the night with Len picking his favorite team dance of the night which were captained by two returning stars Kristi Yamaguchi and Apolo Anton Ohno. They picked Team Apolo (the winning team) to perform again. The 6 dancers performed the hell out of it once again.

Brandy and Maks and Bristol and Mark are first to hear their results. Brandy was nervous prior to her routine and tried hard to think about the leader board. Her little slip up caught the eye of Bruno and Carie Ann but Len excused it because it was the best Foxtrot of the season he thought, even rewarding them a 10. Bristol and Mark had the Viennese Waltz and Bristol said that she didn’t like the dance at all. He even told her to go over the top before they began. Kelly Osbourne thought she did fantastic, but Bristol feels defeated and tired and misses her baby boy at home. She is exhausted and overwhelmed despite the fact that she received her highest scores ever.

Brandy and Maks: SAFE
Bristol and Mark: IN JEOPARDY

Taylor Swift’s Record Breaking Week

In: Donovan, Music

Taylor Swift did it. The country superstar sold over one million copies of her new CD, “Speak Now” in its first week. In this day and age of declining album sales, Swift’s achievement truly is remarkable and speaks on how big Taylor really is. The last album to move over a million units during its first week was Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter III” back in 2008.

As if debuting at No 1. on the Billboard Charts with that many records sold wasn’t impressive enough, Swift boasted a few other notable feats. Her impressive sales, bested Shania Twain’s “Up” which moved 874,000 units in 2002, thus making Swift the record holder for most CDs sold in a week by a country female artist. The last country act to even break the million mark was Garth Brooks when he released “Double Live” in 1998.

Orbitz sucks, Edreams sucks, Expedia sucks, Kayak sucks. Introducing the future of internet flight search: Hipmunk.com!

Besides being cuter than a bag of puppies, Hipmunk is incredibly functional for the average user. (Here’s where I brag again about living in Europe, being able to travel all the time): I’m fed up with the other options for online flight booking. They either leave out the taxes, or present the data in an unreadable manner, or bombard you with ads for crap you’re not looking for. Sometimes I don’t need a hotel, AND a car AND restaurant suggestions, or whatever revenue stream the site has signed up with. Sometimes I know where I’m going, when I want to get there, and I just want to see my best options. That’s why I’m thankful I found Hipmunk.

If you were a kid that grew up in the 1980s then you should most definitely be familiar with the amazing invention, the Lite Brite. If you weren’t born in the 1980s then you severely missed out! There were a variety of toys invented and introduced to the market en mass that would absolutely be banned from store shelves today, but at the time the craze that ensued for each of these must-haves was beyond the makers wildest dreams. Such gems included Pogs, Glo Worms, Cabbage Patch Kids (Dolls), Tickle Me Elmo and of course, Lite Brite.

I had one as a child and spent endless hours creating different images of nothing, as well as following those carefully marked templates/stencils to create the clown face, or the family home with the bright yellow sun shining down. Naturally, Lite Brite was due to make its triumphant and glowing return! No, they won’t be tucked under the tree this Holiday season. Instead, David Crowder Band (DCB) brought back this epic piece of illuminating machinery for their music video, for their tune SMS (Shine).

Not only that, DCB filmed and produced the entire music video using stop-motion filming and footage. Seriously, this video is epic and you have to check it out…

What a great story (slash I’m so mad I didn’t buy a ticket)! A gay couple from right here in Vancouver won the biggest lottery in British Columbia history – $50 million! Kurt Blanchette-Ebert, 63 years old, and his partner Claude, 52 years old, are now Canada’s newest millionaires, having just won the Lotto Max jackpot prize in on Friday. On Monday, Kurt quit his job at the small bakery he worked at, while Claude, who worked as an upholsterer, also quit. Duh.

“I put the ticket in the machine and it said $50 million,” Kurt told the press at the BC Lottery Corporation’s office in Richmond, B.C. “The first thing I said was ‘holy s—!’”. I can’t even imagine what that must of felt like. How would you even be able to sleep!
