Attention Avatar Fans – I Have Some Sam For You

I haven’t seen Avatar, and I shall hang my head in shame. It’s just one of those flicks where you hear so much hype that you can’t help but be disappointed. The reviews I’ve heard have ranged from “Amazing” to “Awesome” to more recently, “They’re fucking blue people and I kind of felt like I was watching a cartoon!” So perhaps I shall wait.

Being that I tend to digress, without further ado, here is a nice and sexy shot of one of the film’s stars, Sam Worthington.

Snookie, I Thought You Were Classy

My heart aches for you Snookie, I feel like I have been deceived as I thought you were a classy lady! Ok, I can’t even seriously pretend to be funny about that because it’s not even believable. I will say though, that I don’t personally care that she’s making out with some dude in a bar, that part doesn’t bother me at all even if I think it’s just a tad bit tacky. However, I am a little disappointed in her outfit and positioning. I’ve never really been into “Hello Kitty” before and I’m definitely not into it now, and certainly not with a trucker hat on! Ewww.

There are a few more pics of the cast if you click this link. Don’t fret, you won’t catch anything by doing so. P.S. She’s from Jersey Shore, in case you didn’t know.

MacGruber Movie? Lame

Check out the trailer for the full-length movie of MacGruber from SNL. I’m kind of in shock that it’s real, I actually half expected a joke when I hit play. It has some adult content so you have to input your date of birth, I know, it’s asking a lot.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

“We Got A Complicated Order!”

Yes, that line is from my favorite Mad TV skit, but it kind of just jumped into my head when I read the real headline. Anywho, Starbucks is now making some pricing adjustments based on what you order, so keep it simple and keep the fucking line moving people! Oops, sorry, just had a little flashback there. Below are some of the details and as you can see, it pays to be boring.

  • Plain coffee, you’ll see a .10 decrease (let’s go shopping!)
  • For an extra shot of coffee, it’ll go from being .55 to .70 (there goes my “Save the children” donation)
  • Adding a shot of syrup now costs .40, a 30% jump (Um, has anyone ever bought the Torani syrup from Marshalls, it’s always there and I wonder if it’s any good?)

So for you non-math types, a triple grande soy vanilla latte would go from $5.55 to $6.25. Well, if that’s your drink of choice then you should pay that much money cause that sounds fucking nasty. No offense and oh yeah, bless your heart.

Funny or Disturbing?

Apparently in London, a DJ played the Van Halen song “Jump” while a woman was on a bridge threatening to jump to her death. He felt that since she couldn’t hear the song no harm was done, and furthermore, it was more to appease and entertain the frustrated drivers that were held up as a result of the impending jump.

I kind of think it’s funny in a disturbing kind of way, what do you think? Read more about it here (jump!), in case you need more information before forming an opinion.

Getting To Know Ke$ha

When I first heard “Tik Tok”, I thought, “Ok, this is pretty catchy – let me check the video.” Once I saw the video, I thought, “Interesting, this girl could really strike a nerve with the disposable pop market, but does she have more?” Then I heard “Blah Blah Blah” (she’s filming the video now for it as the 2nd release) and I thought, “Again, disposable but catchy as hell – two hot songs off a debut track plus an image that’s quite marketable, hmmm…” But then I heard the album about a month in advance and there are about 5-6 possible hits, I think we could have a new pop star – let’s see if she can deepen her image now and make herself not only marketable but also credible as well. I love that she was on Flo Rida’s “Right Round” but didn’t get paid and also declined to be part of the video, she said no. I like that she’s pretty forthcoming about her message and her struggles, and I most of all like that she appears to be in on the joke, if that makes sense.

Anyway, I won’t bore you with my entire timeline of thoughts about her and perhaps you don’t give this kind of thought to a new artist breaking into the market, but it’s something I’ve been doing since I was in high school, so indulge me if you would. This all leads to an interesting interview that she gave, and I’m including a few highlights (or factoids) below and here is a link for the full interview:

  • She was on The Simple Life with Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton because the producers were looking for a highly eccentric family and her family won out.
  • While they were at her home, her demo tape had made its way to Dr Luke, the Swedish songwriter behind hits for Kelly Clarkson (Since U Been Gone), Katy Perry (I Kissed a Girl) and Pink (Who Knew). He called the Kesha’s house at the worst time possible – a petulant pre-motherhood Nicole Richie answered. “She hung up on him,” Ke$ha recalls. “She said ‘Oh, it was just some guy’. Thank God he called back. She could have ruined everything, that bitch! Luckily she didn’t.”
  • She once puked in Paris’ closet at a party.
  • She sang back-up for Britney Spears, but I’m not sure of the track.
  • She was in Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” video.

Madonna + ‘Glee’ = Perfection

As you may have heard, the hit show Glee is going to have an entire Madonna episode. Yep, that’s right! It isn’t yet clear if M will make a guest appearance in the episode, but the anticipation is building nonetheless. Reportedly, the song list is as follows:

Borderline
Open Your Heart
Burning Up
4 Minutes
Crazy For You
Like A Virgin
Like A Prayer
What It Feels Like For A Girl
Vogue
Express Yourself

Borderline and Open Your Heart are actually mixed into one song as sort of a medley while all the other songs are performed in full or in an edit version. All songs’ arrangements are inspired by the album original versions of the songs except for Express Yourself, inspired by the famous “Video Version” and Crazy For You which is presented as an exclusive acoustic guitar version.(source)

Your Kitchen Is A Chubby Chaser

According to a study for the Annual Reviews of Nutrition, your kitchen could be a large contributor to your fat ass. And I mean that with love. But seriously, there are implications from bad lighting, where you store your junk, plate size, etc. Keep reading and see which items you might be guilty of.

Your plates are platter size

“Most of us make a habit of filling our plates and finishing what’s on them,” says Lisa Young, PhD, RD, author of “The Portion Teller Plan.” But since the 1970s, dinner plates have grown 25%, to 12 inches or more in diameter.

Eat off a plate about 2 inches smaller and you’ll serve yourself 22% fewer calories per meal, which can mean a 2-pound weight lossin 1 month, says Brian Wansink, PhD, director of Cornell University’s Food and Brand Lab and the author of “Mindless Eating.”

Solution: Rethink your place settings. Use your salad plate to hold higher-calorie meats or pasta, and load your dinner plate with veggies, says Young. If you plan to buy new plates, the best size is 10 inches in diameter, says Wansink. “Any smaller, though, and you’ll go back for seconds,” he adds.

You love bright light

High-wattage lighting can raise stress levels, stimulating your appetite and causing you to eat faster than usual, according to research reviews. On the flip side, too dim is no better — studies show low lighting lessens inhibitions.

Solution: Many modern kitchens have layers of light sources, from under-the-cabinet halogens to recessed lights around the perimeter and a decorative fixture over the table, says Joseph Rey-Barreau, a lighting designer in Lexington, KY. When you’re cooking, flip on as many lights as you’d like, but when it’s time to eat, use no more than 240 total watts. That’s the equivalent of four 60-watt bulbs in a four-light over-the-table fixture, for example, or six 40-watt bulbs in six high hats; with compact fluorescent bulbs, use 75 to 100 total watts.

Oh yeah, you know some of these apply, keep reading. Continue reading

Performance Art At Its Best

I know it’s video and stills set to a Muse song called, “Butterflies and Hurricanes” but it almost feels like performance art because of the video direction.

For me, it represents sexiness, perversion, style, love, rebellion, violence, anarchy, and on and on. If I were a video maker, this might be what my video would look like. Have a look at the video and check out the photog’s site for more goodness.

Help Gets Texted in for Haitian People

Good job people! Check this out below.

Cellphone users in the United States have contributed more than $11 million to Haitian earthquake relief through text messages in what is being hailed as an unprecedented mobile response to a natural disaster.

The Mobile Giving Foundation called it a “mobile-giving record” for funds raised for a single cause. Donations are rising swiftly, it said, as former President Bill Clinton and other politicians urge the American people to give.

Jim Manis, chief executive officer of the foundation helping to manage cellphone donations, said it was receiving up to 10,000 text messages per second. The foundation said more than $11 million has been donated.

Cellphone users can donate $5 to Haiti-born hip-hop musician Wyclef Jean’s Yele Haiti Earthquake Fund by texting the word “Yele” to 501501, or they can donate $10 to other nonprofit organizations, such as the American Red Cross, by texting the word “Haiti” to a specified number, like 90999.

The donation is charged to a user’s cellphone bill.

The American Red Cross said it has received more than $9 million in donations from more than 900,000 mobile phone users. Keep reading.

This reminds me of a favorite movie line, unrelated but related – you’ll see (or hear).
