You may not like making your bed at home, but with TownePlace Suites by Marriott, making a bed makes a difference. With a simple click on the brand’s new Facebook application you make a bed and TownePlace Suites donates $2 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief. Our goal is to donate up to $50,000 by November 1, 2010. It took me literally seconds to make a bed and it’s all for a good cause. You should do it as well too.

In addition to helping others, you help yourself. After making a bed, you can register to win a Flip Video™ Camera. Take it one step further by sharing the Make a Bed app with your Facebook friends to help make an even bigger difference for people in need. When four of your friends on Facebook make a bed and register, you will be entered to win a 7-night stay at any participating TownePlace Suites location.

“TownePlace Suites customers like to stay connected and what better way to connect than to join with friends in your social network and donate to those in need,” said Peggy Fang Roe, Vice President, Brand Management, TownePlace Suites and Marriott Executive Apartments. “As an extended-stay hotel brand, we understand the importance of feeling the comforts of home while on the road. With money donated through the Make a Bed Facebook application, together we will help families get back into their own beds.”

Make a Bed is part of “real giving”, a TownePlace Suites by Marriott program serving the community across the United States. Through volunteer service and donation opportunities, the national “real giving” program engages TownePlace Suites associates, owners, franchisees and customers to help provide comfort and warmth to benefit those in need. During the program’s inaugural year, TownePlace Suites hotels donated over 1,000 blankets to children in hospitals across the country.

In: Donovan, TV Shows

Here’s a little treat for all you hardcore ANTM fans. If you can’t wait for next Wednesday’s episode, check out a few pictures from the upcoming show. Famed photographer Matthew Rolston takes the models’ pictures this week. Man, those girls are lucky. Rolston is one of my favorite photographers ever. If I was a girl in a previous cycle, I’d be so pissed I missed out on this season.

Lohan Back In Jail

In: Celeb Gossip & News, Patrick

From the bars, to back behind bars, our favorite trainwreck was ordered back to jail today. No more tricks up Lindsay Lohan‘s sleeve, now that she’ll be locked up without bail until October 22nd. At that time, a formal probation hearing will take place. This morning, Judge Elden Fox revoked her probation at the hearing because Lohan had breached her probation and tested positive for drugs. The probation was in place as a result of her DUI conviction from back in 2007.

She has been pretty, mature in realizing she effed up again and must pay the price. When it was discovered she tested positive for drugs, she tweeted, “Regrettably, I did in fact fail my most recent drug test and if I am asked,
I am prepared to appear before judge Fox next week as a result.” That did in fact happen at the Beverly Hills Courthouse, and she was handcuffed and taken away to jail this morning.

She needs to “suck the poison out of her life,” just as Cady Herron did, the character she played in Mean Girls.

On November 5, 2010, Dreamworks releases their 3D animated film, “Megamind“. The film stars Will Ferrell as Megamind, Tina Fey as Roxanne Ritchi, Jonah Hill as Hal/Tighten and Brad Pitt as Metro Man.

Megamind is the most brilliant super-villain the world has ever known…and the least successful. Over the years, he has tried to conquer Metro City in every imaginable way – Each attempt, a colossal failure thanks to the caped superhero known as “Metro Man,” until the day Megamind actually defeats him in the throes of one of his botched evil plans. Suddenly, the fate of Metro City is threatened when a new villain arrives and chaos runs rampant, leaving everyone to wonder: Can the world’s biggest “mind” actually be the one to save the day?

Last month, Portia de Rossi filed a name change petition in L.A. Superior Court. As of yesterday, the blond stunner is officially now Portia Lee James DeGeneres. Au revoir, de Rossi. So we all know where DeGeneres came from, but what about Lee and James. According to reports, Lee is Portia’s given middle name, but James was added. For what reason, it hasn’t come out yet, but you have to admit, it has a nice ring to it.

The two were married in 2008 after dating for nearly four years. Both wore Zac Posen designs. Portia chose a white princess gown, while Ellen wore an all-white suit. Neil Lane furnished the wedding rings.

Congrats to Mrs & Mrs DeGeneres.

MY GENERATION SERIES PREMIERE

“My Generation” chronicles a documentary crew that follows a group of high-schoolers, from when they graduate in 2000, to present day where they return home for their 10-year reunion. When they come back home, they discover they’re not where they thought they’d be. The drama incorporates some of the most defining events in the past decade as the backdrop of the characters lives- from Y2K, to Enron, to 911 and the multitude of world-changing events that affected these fictitious characters and ourselves.

The show has been getting some awful reviews, but I have to say, I enjoyed it. It wasn’t the best drama ever, but it certainly has the foundation for a great show. While it’s daunting for any show to introduce nine main characters in the pilot, I feel the producers did a good job. There are a few that I really like and rooting for. The producers promised they would include real news footage as part of their storytelling. I have to say, their usage of “The Bachelor Season 2″ was pure genius and had me laughing out loud.

I hope ABC keeps the show around. It has great potential and compared to the other crappy new offerings this season, “My Generation” deserves a chance.

Series Premiere Grade: B

Movie Review: You Again

In: Movies, Patrick

I had the PLEASURE of watching this movie on Wednesday night and I gotta tell you, it’s a MUST SEE. At first glance, you’re probably like, “Oh wow, Sigorney Weaver, Kristin Bell, Betty White, Jamie Lee Curtis…This movie should be pretty good. It has some big names.” Yes, that is true. BUT, I’m here to tell you that these actors (and the others) more than succeed in delivering a stellar performance… and the laughs just don’t stop.

Here’s the premise of the film: “When a young woman realizes her brother is about to marry the girl who bullied her in high school, she sets out to expose the fiancée’s true colors.”

In the film, Marni (Kristin Bell) used to be a nerd in high school – and that’s putting it mildly. She was a pizza-faced, clumsy girl with glasses and braces whose life was made a living hell by Queen Bee, JJ. (Odette Yustman). Sidenote: Odette Yustman is engaged to Brothers and Sisters star Dave AnnableIn (who plays Justin Walker). Anyway, at the present day, Marni is a successful advertising executive who has grown into her looks and gained confidence to stand out in the business world. Marni has to fly home for her brother Will’s (Jim Wolk) wedding, to a woman Marni has yet to meet. Their mother Gail (Jamie Lee Curtis) is all for Will’s bride to be. The bride to be’s name? Joanna (AKA JJ)! This is Marni’s biggest nightmare!

Movie Review: Wall Street Money Never Sleeps

In: Donovan, Movies

Greed is good, but Gordon Gecko is great. When I first heard they were planning on filming a sequel to this decade-defining movie, I was beyond apprehensive. The original was phenomenal and earned Michael Douglas an Oscar for his portrayal of the unscrupulous Gecko. Could Oliver Stone recreate magic twice? In fact, this is the first time the respected director has ever filmed a sequel to any of his movies.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps” takes place 23 years after the events of the original movie. A newly released Gordon Gecko leaves prison to face a new financial world. Having spent years in prison, he’s completely out of the loop. No more evident than, when he receives his 4lb brick-looking cell phone upon being released.

This time, Shia Laboeuf plays the young ingenue trader (Jacob) working his way through the shark-infested financial waters. When his mentor commits suicide, he seeks revenge on the very man that drove him to take his life. Coincidentally it’s the same man that narc’ed out Gekko to the authorities that landed Gordon in prison.

Things are complicated further, when it’s revealed that Jacob’s girlfriend is Gekko’s daughter, Winnie. She severed all ties with her father during his incarceration, because she blames him for her brother’s, Rudy, suicide.
