elaine mellencamp

elaine mellencamp




Whilst this week has been the showcase of celebrity engagements, singer John Mellencamp and his model wife Elaine Irwin have decided to reveal their intentions to all that they are to divorce, after 20 years of marriage. While a representative for the story hasn't confirmed that the papers have been filed yet, it seems that the split is a neutral agreement between the pair.

A spokesman for the 59-year-old rocker says he and his wife of 20 years, model Elaine Mellencamp (nee Irwin), are splitting up.



"John and Elaine Mellencamp are proud of their 20 years together and are very happy with their accomplishments both as parents and as a family," their spokesman said in a statement on Thursday. "They will continue to raise their two children in Indiana but have decided to call it a day as a couple." He says they will continue to raise their two children in Indiana.

Mellencamp's latest offering, "No Better Than This," was released for fans earlier this year

crystal harris playboy

crystal harris playboy


Playboy magazine head honcho and creator, Hugh Hefner, celebrated the holidays in big style with his newest squeeze and announced his engagement to blonde bombshell girlfriend, Crystal Harris. Hefner, 84, said in a Twitter message from his mansion in Hollywood that he'd got a ring for Harris, a 24 year old ex playmate.

Harris, who posed for Playboy in her birthday suit last December, burst into tears at the news that the octogenarian mogul wants to tie the knot, he tweeted.

"This is the happiest Christmas weekend in memory," Hefner wrote. "Yes, the ring I gave Crystal is an engagement ring," the mogul wrote. "I didn't mean to make a mystery out of it. A very merry Christmas to all." It would be the third marriage for the still-dapper Hef. He divorced equally stunning Playmate Kimberly Conrad last year. He was married for 10 years to college sweetheart Mildred Williams in the '50s.

So another marriage for the classic porn mogul Hefner in the twilight of his life and he'll be pleased to have landed such a young looker!

Amazon customer review: "I ordered these pair of glasses because my half jacket silver with iridium lenses (silver frame with light blue lenses) is showing its age. I got a whisker type Oakley as a gift last Christmas but feel that I enjoy the plastic versions better. I got them from the mail today and so extremely satisfied with it. I picked the rootbeer color with same color frame and gold emblem. It fits my face perfectly and I like the new color. The lenses are great but I'm still getting used to the rootbeer lens color. I'm asian and these glasses are snug, they really hug my face and they are very light. You really have to pick the style that fits your face in order to really be satisfied with the Oakley glasses. So far I have 4 Oakleys including a frame for my prescription glasses.

I was a Ray Ban guy but I like Oakleys better. Great quality glasses, would buy again."




So some very stylish and multi-functional sunglasses which is sure to meet the needs of anybody going out travelling and wanting their eyes adapted and to the suns rays.

itunes store

itunes store


Times have definitely changed and in turn so do Christmases and gifts. A decade ago, children's hopes for christmas were getting the Barbie doll or Transformer toy they'd always wanted whereas today those gifts are considered tedious next to ipods, ipads and iphones which are the new highly desired gift amongst the younger generation.

So, everyone is hooked up on downloading iTunes, finding apps on the Apple iTunes store both free apps and paid apps.


One of the favorite games that everyone downloads so far is the Angry Birds – Christmas edition. So, to all who have new iPod, Ipad and iPhone who wants to get their Apple products ready, just head on to iTunes.com or Apple.com and you will find directions on how to get started with your new toys. You need to setup your very own iTunes account though and if you are kids, have your parents set up the account for you or have them register their account on your behalf.

So head on over to itunes to get applications and media that you've been looking for, for a while.

how to cook prime rib

how to cook prime rib


If you're cooking a Christmas prime rib and are clueless as to how long it needs to roast you're one of many. A primer rib roast is also called a "Standing Rib Roast" and is taken from the rib section and made up of the 6th rib through to the 12th and a standing Prime Rib Roast can be 2 to 7 ribs. After it's roasted, it is divided into portions which are named "Prime Rib".

Make sure you have an easy-to-read digital meat thermometer on hand. It's important to check the internal temp for the perfect prime rib for Christmas dinner. The USDA gives the following cooking times for roasting a prime rib: Bone-in Beef Rib Roast (4-8 lbs): Set oven to 325 degrees, Medium Rare (Internal temp 145 degrees): Roast 23-30 min per pound, Medium (Internal temp 160 degrees): Roast 27-38 min per pound, Medium Rare (Internal temp 145 degrees): Roast 39-43 min per pound, Whole Beef Tenderloin (4-6 lbs) Set oven to 425 degrees, Medium Rare (Internal temp 145 degrees): Roast 45-60 minutes total.

So stick to the guidelines you've found regarding the meal and your cooking should come off a success.

I had purchased a Samsung Captivate as a second phone to carry, but returned it due to some issues. The Xperia X10 is just a really great device. Phone reception is really great and gps functions spot on.
Timescape is a very nice way to keep up with social feeds and the presentation is pretty killer.

They have also added things like Exchange support that would be lacking in many older versions of the OS. It's a very pretty UI and overall a pleasure to use vs stock Android. This is a very short review, but I will say that I highly recommend the X10."

norad santa tracker

norad santa tracker


The 2010 Santa Tracker service has been reignited from the North American Aerospace Defense Command. In 1955, the agency that evolved to become NORAD began keeping track of the travels taken by Santa Claus. This came from a Sears department store which misprinted a phone number which implied that kids could "talk to Santa" on christmas eve.

Kids instead got sent to the Continental Air Defense office, who gave them the “current location” of Santa.


You can call the 2010 NORAD Santa tracker team to get Santa’s current location by dialing 1-877-446-6723. The Santa Tracker team also answers any e-mails sent to noradtrackssanta@gmail.com. The Twitter account, @noradsanta also tracks Santa’s location. You can also use Google Earth as a Santa Tracker. This year, using Google Maps Mobile, NORAD Santa Tracker can deliver Santa’s current location to directly to any cell phone. Just visit m.noradsanta.org or visit Google Maps Mobile and search for “Santa.”

The santa tracker is also available through online services like Facebook, YouTube, Flickr and TroopTube.tv. NORAD will also track the amount of cookies Santa eats during his long night of travels.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-46EX500 1080P 120Hz 46-Inch LCD HD TV


A stunning focal point for any entertainment system is the 46-inch Bravia EX500 series HDTV(model KDL-46EX500) brings together a slick design with state of the art features. There's full HD 1080p picture quality along with extremely impressive smooth motion in fast-action sports scenes, movies and games because of the in built Motionflow 120Hz refresh rate technology.

Plus, Ambient Sensor and LightSensor technologies automatically adjust the color and brightness based on your room's lighting to ensure you'll always get the best possible picture.


Connect your BRAVIA Sync compatible devices and enjoy convenient operation and control using one remote. Other features include 6 HD inputs (4 HDMI, 2 component), a USB port for photo, music, and video playback on the TV, and VESA compliant wall mounts.

Key Features

Full HD 1080p Resolution: Experience Full HD 1080p picture quality, the highest at-home resolution, and take full advantage of HD sources like a Blu-ray Disc Player or PlayStation3 gaming console via the 16:9 wide screen panel (1920 x 1080).

Motionflow 120Hz Technology: Experience smooth motion detail and clarity with Motionflow 120Hz technology. Motionflow 120Hz technology doubles the frame rate from the standard 60 frames per second and applies Image Blur Reduction technology to deliver a crisp, fluid and realistic viewing experience during fast-action scenes.

LightSensor Technology: Automatically increase or decrease the level of brightness of your TV's backlight based on a room's lighting conditions with the integrated LightSensor technology. Dim the lights to watch a movie and the sensor dims the backlight, which also helps reduce unnecessary power consumption.

Ambient Sensor: Get a natural looking picture whether you are watching movies late at night or playing video games during the day with an Ambient Sensor that automatically adjusts the picture color based on a room's lighting.

BRAVIA Engine 2: Enjoy sharp, vibrant, life-like images while optimizing color and contrast and significantly reducing noise with the BRAVIA Engine 2 fully digital processor.

6 HD Inputs: Get versatile HD connection options with 6 HD inputs, including 4 HDMI inputs to connect a Blu-ray Disc player, PlayStation3 gaming console or any other HDMI-capable equipment. Two HD component inputs provide added HD-capable connectivity, while a PC input (HD-15 pin) lets you use your HDTV as a computer monitor.

24p True Cinema: Movies consist of 24 images per second, and cannot be faithfully reproduced on conventional televisions, resulting in unnatural, jerky movements. But 24p True Cinema displays the 24 progressive images as they should be, in the same sequence as the original film source. Now, you can recreate the visual clarity of cinema-quality movies in the comfort of your own home.

USB Input: Share your photos on the big screen or listen to your favorite music. Simply connect your digital camera, USB-enabled MP3 player, or USB storage device directly to your HDTV's USB input.

BRAVIA Sync Compatible: Conveniently operate and control other BRAVIA Sync compatible devices--including BRAVIA HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc Players, surround sound systems, Handycam camcorders and Cyber-shot digital still cameras, all with one remote control.

VESA-compatible hole spacing uses an industry-standard mounting-hole pattern that can be used with VESA-compliant mounting brackets, taking the guesswork out of selecting the proper hardware for hanging your TV on the wall.

Amazon customer review: "By now, you probably done loads of research on the different LCD TV's.. Samsung, Toshiba etc. I purchased this set a few days ago and have it hanging on a sturdy wall mount. What I can say is that the image quality is vivid and you will not be disappointed in the feature set. The motionflow100 is definitely something new and takes some getting used to. You may not want to have it ON all the time. Though when watching fast films for action scenes and sports, it will definitely make a difference.

The TV has a very rich set of options and features, including slide shows and the handy USB port. Which only accepts FAT32 formatted USB sticks. it also requires registration on [...] to unlock certain DivX functionality.

Overall, I believe that the 46' is the BEST LCD currently on the market - in this price range. With motionflow and the USB port being the deciding factor for me. It was well worth it. Remember, no wireless, no presence sensor, no internet connectivity. That wasn't a train smash for me. The image is crisp and vivid, HD films are an amazing experience on this TV. Now I'm off to get the right sound setup. If you done the research and have the money, GO FOR IT.. I doubt you'll ever look back.

ENJOY.."

So clearly a very good buy for anyone looking for a box to impress the family and friends by displaying entertainment in the highest quality with the smoothest of efficiency.

terrelle pryor

terrelle pryor


Quarterback of Ohio State, Terrelle Pryor has been suspended by the NCAA for the first five matches of next season along with four other Buckeyes for selling championship rings, jerseys and awards and getting improper benefits from a tattoo parlor. However all of the players will still be able to feature in the Sugar Bowl Against Arkansas.

Along with Pryor, running back Daniel Herron, wide receiver DeVier Posey, offensive lineman Mike Adams and defensive end Solomon Thomas must sit out and repay between $1,000 to $2,500 to charity.

Pryor must repay $2,500 for selling his 2008 Big Ten championship ring, Fiesta Bowl sportsmanship award and his 2008 gold pants, a trinket given to players who are a part of a team which beats rival Michigan. Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith said the school will appeal the suspensions.

So the players must pay the penalty for dishonest profitting from their sales of club periphenalia.

Right off the back of the controversy of the New York Jets trainer purposely tripping an opposing player during a game, the team have another scandal to deal with as they prepare for the playoffs. Website Deadspin has unearthed some foot-fetish videos that were posted on youtube depicting what many believe to be, Rex Ryan's wife, Michelle (pictured left with Rex).

The proof has been made by the fact that the woman looks exactly like Michelle and an off-screen voice in one of the videos —



"You mind if I touch them? ... Can I smell 'em?" — sounds like Rex Ryan but the connections only begin with surface resemblances. We found "ihaveprettyfeet"'s personal profile on a foot fetishist dating site. Reached for comment, a Jets spokesman said only: "This is a personal matter and Rex will have no comment."

So an embarassing situation for the New York Jets man and his wife and they will be hoping they can gloss over this matter ASAP!

mia wasikowska

mia wasikowska


Aussie actress Mia Wasikowska, who played the lead in "Alice in Wonderland," had a lofty position as one of the top grossing actors of 2010. She came in a surprising 2nd place behind first place, Leonardo DiCaprio. The list, compiled by Forbes, calculates the actors who earned the most money at the box office this year.

DiCaprio's "Inception" made $1.1 billion at the global box office, while "Alice in Wonderland" made $1.03 billion.

Wasikowska also starred in the critically-acclaimed film "The Kids Are All Right," with Annette Benning and Julianne Moore. That film earned a respectable $29 million at the box office - a healthy return, since the film was made on just a $4 million dollar budget, Forbes notes.

So a great achievement for the Australian and one she will no doubt be proud of for years to come.

taylor schilling

According to reports from E! Online, star of High School Musical, Zac Efron has been getting close to actress, Taylor Schilling. The two are co-stars on a new movie called "The Lucky One" and according to E!, “They joke around, eat together sometimes, run lines. Nothing out of the ordinary.”

Taylor Schilling was born on July 27th, 1984 (which makes her to be 26 years of age at the time of this writing) in Boston, Massachusetts.

In 2009, Schilling landed her first major acting gig with the NBC drama called Mercy. Schilling played the leader character in that show. About landing the role and the show itself, Schilling said, “It’s relatable. These characters aren’t glossy. It doesn’t strike me as soap opera–y."

So another pair of co-stars look to be getting together. Time will tell whether they will become a real item or not.

Last night saw reality TV star and singer of 80's rock band Poison, Brett Michaels, propose to his long time girlfriend, Kristi Gibson, and he did it on the final show of his reality tv show. When Brett was asked about how he felt about being engaged he said that "it feels awesome!"

Gibson, who turns 40 on Christmas, said this is the best birthday and Christmas present she could ever receive, and commented about her relationship with Michaels through all of the ups and downs they’ve been through this year.


“I’ve been through everything with him,” Gibson told People. “A ring and a paper wouldn’t make me love him more. I’m just happy he’s alive.”

So it looks like free spirited rocker Brett Michaels CAN settle down. A date for the forthcoming wedding is unknown.

Samsung PN58C7000 58-Inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV (Black)

Samsung's new C7000 series Plasma flat-panel HDTVs offer an amazing performance, unmatched design and several unique features that expand the HDTV experience with it's brand new 3D feature. Samsung's E3-panel put together with our clear Image panel technology offers a stunning high-contrast picture from any angle.

The Ultra Slim cabinet measures 1.5-inch deep and is designed with a rich-looking brushed hairline black bezel.

Samsung's HDTV innovations include a powerful Internet@TV connectivity package for customizable access to Internet content, home-networking capability via the DLNA standard, playback of your camera and camcorder via USB, and 3D HDTV processing with optional Samsung 3D glasses. Samsung's Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC standard) technology makes system control of compatible A/V devices a one-touch operation. Combine a beautiful design, advanced Internet@TV functionality, the new 3D HDTV experience capability – Samsung's new C7000 Series Plasma HDTVs are designed with this in mind.

Amazon customer review of product: "Well after Amazon's usual service and delivery I just could not wait to hook up the Samsung 3D Blu-ray to the new PN58C7000 Samsung Plasma 3D TV.

And I was not disappointed. The made for 3D Monsters vs Aliens was understandably outstanding, it was created just for this. But the 1966 2001 A Space Odyssey on Blu-ray was equally impressive with nice depth. The pen in the space liner sequence floated out in front of the screen. The entrance into the space dock was likewise rendered with depth making the movie quite a bit more enjoyable than with the 3D turned off.

I suspect we will all be watching in 3D more and more. I am glad that I waited and paid the small difference in price.

I'll let someone else help with the decision about the black filter that is the difference between the C7000 and C8000.

And when can we have something about 85" Samsung?"




So a very impressive TV which is bound to meet the needs of anybody wanting high quality viewing from a super slim screen.

shania twain

shania twain


The personal life of Shania Twain is resembling somewhat of a real life version of wife swap. After the singer was left by former husband of 14 years, record producer, Robert "Mutt" Lange, who went on to date Shania's former BFF Marie-Anne Thiébaud, the forlorn singer has now started seeing Marie's broken-hearted husband, Frédéric Thiébaud, for support. Now the duo are reportedly ready to get hitched.

Thiébaud, 40, a Swiss Nestlé business exec, popped the question nearly two months ago, while the duo were in Switzerland, Twain's rep tells E! News.

But their engagement became public when Twain, 45, stepped out wearing the engagement ring last week at Serafina's in New York. The couple's road to bliss came after they had leaned on each other in the wake of their exes' apparent hookup. Lange had abruptly abandoned Twain in 2008 when he fell for Marie-Ann Thiébaud, who was also Twain's best friend and closest confidante. Twain and Lange have a 9-year-old son together, Eja D'Angelo.

So a somewhat surreal situation that has occured between the heartbroken pair. As of yet a wedding date is unknown.

I had resisted all-in-ones, concerned about too much activity jammed into a small space, but there is no sacrifice in quality for my amateur purposes."




So clearly a very impressive unit which tackles the capabilities of a printer, fax and scanner all in one and is practical and high tech enough to satisfy those needs.

Birza told EW.com that "winning Survivor is definitely the hardest thing I’ve ever done and the most rewarding."

Perusing his bio on the official Survivor page at CBS.com, one learns that Birza's "personal claim to fame" is "Being a rad older brother." As for his motivation for going on the show, he states: "I could do a lot with a million dollars! Plus, camping on a tropical island with a bunch of cute girls sounds like the best vacation ever."

So a great accomplishment for the youngster and one he will be proud of for the rest of his life surely.

Shrek: The Musical [Cast Recording]


SHREK THE MUSICAL was recently stamped as a "Big fat hit" by newspaper USA today, and "true happiness" by the New York Times. The Dreamworks Theatricals and Neal Street Productions, Ltd star show began at the Broadway Theatre in New York City on December 14th, 2008. In March the highly anticipated original cast recording is to be spread out by Decca Broadway and available everywhere.

On January 12th, the entire cast of SHREK THE MUSICAL will be congregating at Legacy Studios in New York City to record the cast album which will undoubtedly capture the sheer joy and infectious appeal of this not-to-be-missed stage production.

Highlights of the forthcoming disc include Brian d'Arcy James' rousing "Big, Bright Beautiful World" "I Know It's Today,"showcasing the charismatic Sutton Foster; Christopher Sieber leading the cast in the over-the-top "What's Up, Duloc?;" the hilarious "Don't Let Me Go," sung by Daniel Breaker; and "Freak Flag," featuring John Tartaglia and the entire company.

Amazon customer review: "Shrek the Musical accomplishes what many adapted musicals fail to do: it remains true to it's source material, but manages to become a work all of its own.
A few of the songs are a little cumbersome, but Brian D'Arcy James is inspired as Shrek, and of couse Sutton Foster is perfection. I would buy a CD of her singing warm-up scales!!
This is a perfect addition for any music library!"




So a well recommended take on the Shrek feature film and certainly a good choice of musical to watch if you enjoy musicals in general.

lunar eclipse

lunar eclipse


Last December 13, 2009, star gazers and sky watching enthusiasts marvelled at the glowing Geminid meteor shower. If you didn't catch that, there's good news for you because next Tuesday there's another meteor shower reports say from space.com.

The Ursids meteor shower isn't supposedly bright enough as the Geminid, but the stars and the moon are aligned on a very nice position on this night that the Ursids meteor shower will be visible.


There will be a Lunar Eclipse on December 20 or 21 depending on the area and thus, we will have a darker sky, but the stars will be brighter and the meteor shower seen. It will be visible throughout North and Central America from 11:41 p.m. PST Monday until 12:53 a.m. Tuesday, the first such eclipse in almost three years.

So a rare treat for anyone who marvels at nightsky activity and you'll have to be ready for it as there isn't another lunar eclipse till 2014!

katt williams

katt williams


Comedian Katt Williams has to fork out $577,929 bucks as a penalty because reportedly, he tried to scare record producer, Merion Joseph Powers with it by going to his studio in order to viciously attack Power's dog. Williams' attack dog proceeded to assault Power's dog by giving him "substantial and nearly life-threatening injuries'.

But that wasn't the only time it happened. Powers and Williams met at a hotel to talk about what had happened and according to Powers, Williams used his bodyguards and dogs to intimidate him into not pressing charges.

But what caused Katt to do this? According to Powers, he claims Williams refused to settle his $28,000 bill at a studio in Atlanta, thus is why he did those mean things.

So comedian, Williams is feeling the strong arm of the law as a result for using his pet to damage and intimidate Merion Joesph Powers. Hopefully he learns from this.

julianne hough is that so wrong

julianne hough is that so wrong


Julianne Hough's "Is That So Wrong" music video has been banned by media because it is apparently too racy. Although some bosses are stating off the record that the ban is due to contract negotiations on interpretations whereas Hough says it's because the video is too revealing and racy.

The video shows toward the end a controversial scene where she (Hough) strips off her shirt, revealing her bra, and she then does some nice gymnastics on the bed. “Apparently I was taking off too many clothes as I was dancing around my bedroom. But I don’t know — I kind of liked it.” Said Hough. Julianne Hough is most widely known for being a two-time winner of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. Her self-titled album was released May 20, 2008, debuting at #1 on the Billboard Country Album chart and #3 on the Billboard 200. It sold 67,000 copies its first week, and has sold over 320,000 total copies.

So an unfortunate turn of events for the country singer and one she'll be hoping doesn't backfire on her popularity.

demi lovato twitter pictures

demi lovato twitter pictures


So it seems Demi Lovato is the latest to follow the trend of having racy pictures leaked onto the internet. The racy photos that were leaked onto twitter show some provocative stuff and with her currently having to sort herself out in rehab, she won't be welcoming any tabloid scandal that the pictures, showing her cleavage and flirting with a friend, will draw up.

In the Twitter pics, Demi Lovato is seen with her backup dancers (including the one she punched), as she pulls her top down and reveals cleavage. A representative for DEMI LOVATO has moved to silence rumours the troubled singer/actress is featured in a soon-to-be-leaked sex tape - branding the story "disgusting". The rep tells Gossip Cop, "Perpetrating these completely unfounded rumours from supposed sources while Demi is in treatment dealing with serious physical and emotional issues is disgusting."



So possibly a big scandal on the hands of the young actress and some controversy will be drawn up by people who think she should be setting a good example working for disney.

the grim sleeper

the grim sleeper


The Los Angeles Police Department has hesitantly marked five of the tens of women found in photos uncovered on the "Grim Sleeper" serial killer's property. All claims were taken from their tips hotline. The photos were found on the property of suspected "Grim Sleeper" serial killer, Lonnie David Franklin Jr.(pictured left), and police say they hope people will be able to remember the faces and contact them.

He said that "three or four of the five at this point" have come forward and said "it was me in the picture." "We have not confirmed that and we're going to personally interview everyone," Doan said.


Franklin, a 57-year-old mechanic, was charged with 10 counts of murder and one count of attempted murder in July in the "Grim Sleeper" case. He is accused of murdering 10 young women between 1985 and 2007 in South Los Angeles.

So it looks like the police are making progress in the case and hopefully they will be able to pinpoint the man at this point.

shelley malil

shelley malil

Shelley Malil, an actor who made an appearance in the Steve Carell classic film "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," has been in court and sentenced to life behind bars for stabbing his ex-girlfriend over twenty times. He was convicted in September or attempted murder and also with assault with a lethal weapon.

The jury had heard that Malil, 45, stabbed Kendra Keebe inside her own home after he saw her drinking wine with another man in 2008.



She suffered punctured lungs and cuts to her back, chest, neck, and arms. He was also charged with burglary for stealing marijuana and other items from her home two days before the attacked. He was acquitted of that charge. His lawyer argued that despite stabbing Keebe multiple times, Malil never intended to kill her. Malil, who played one of Carell's co-workers in the 2005 comedy, apologized before the court, saying he wanted to go to prison to "make sure I make right from the wrong that I did."

He will be able to qualify for parole in 12 years but could be out in 9 providing he shows displays of good behaviour.

pentobarbital

pentobarbital

With a lean supply of drugs usually used in human executions, prison bosses in Oklahoma have turned to a three-drug cocktail-including an pentobarbital, an animal euthanasia drug-to execute a murderer yesterday, Reuter reports. The convict, John David Duty (pictured left) was charged with murdering his cellmate with a bed sheet in 2001.

Prison officials said there were no issues with the use of pentobarbital, which has never been employed in an American execution before.



Attorneys had appealed its use, but a federal court in Oklahoma and an appeals court upheld its use as part of the execution, Reuters notes. Duty was already in prison serving two consecutive life sentences for robbery, shooting with intent to kill, and rape when he murdered his cellmate. After strangling his cellmate with a sheet, Duty then wrote to his victim’s mother and bragged about the murder, Reuters reports.

So the harshest penalty for the serial felon, John David Duty and the relatives and friends of the murdered cellmate should feel consoled in some way by the penalty.

facebook not working

facebook not working

People tend to lose the plot when their facebook goes down, even if it's just for a minute. Well today, the site was taken down for 5 minutes and the big hoorah that was made over it was as if the site had been down for 5 days. Facebook took the site down so they could make updates to the interface.

But also they had to do some damage control, they said “For a brief period of time, some internal prototypes were made public to a number of people externally,” a Facebook rep told Forbes.


“As a result, we took the site down for a few minutes. It’s back up, and we apologize for the inconvenience.” We used to just get our entertainment from TV or the movies, but Facebook – to legions of adults, tweens and teens alike generations of users – has become the go-to entertainment time waster.

So a somewhat distressing day for many who were deeply concerned about the site being down for mere minutes!

nikki six

According to reports guitarist of rock legends Motley Crue, Nikki Sixx is dating hollywood star, Denise Richards, proving that she's addicted to the bad boy types! From her notorious marriage to Charlie Sheen to her romance with Bon Jovi rocker, Richie Sambora, Denise Richards definitely shows signs of having a definite type of man when it comes to romance.



Celebrity tattoo artist Von D called it quits with Sixx back in January, ending their two-year romance. Sixx alluded to a someone special on his Twitter.com blog on Friday night, revealing he had "a midnight rendezvous planned with a beautiful maiden." And Usmagazine.com reports the mysterious maiden is in fact Richards, after the pair was spotted getting cozy over breakfast at a Calabasas, California restaurant the following morning. The source tells the website, "Nikki was telling stories, and Denise was laughing... They have a lot in common and are taking things slowly."

So a new flame for the Motley Crue star and another rebel type man for Denise Richards. Whether this will be a successful relationship will yet to be seen.

heidi jones

heidi jones

Prominent weather reporter, Heidi Jones, who alleged to police she got out of a potential rape situation has now been accused of it all being a lie she made up. She was arrested at the weekend and has been taken off air by the station she works for, WABC-TV, pending an investigation by police.

According to police, Jones waited a month to report the incident and described her attacker as a stocky, Hispanic man who tackled her from behind. But when authorities canvassed the area and began to ask questions, the story didn't add up. After questioning Jones a second time, police say there were inconsistencies in her story, and when confronted, Jones confessed. Police say Jones fabricated the story after experiencing personal problems. She was charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in prison if she's found guilty. Jones, Nguyen added, is scheduled to appear in court on January 15.


So a bizarre situation arisen around the TV weather reporter and hopefully she will possibly be facing a heavy penalty of a year inprisonment.

kate o brien

kate o brien



To most people the name Kate O' Brien (Pictured far left in the picture) is unknown. This was the case until last night when Amy Adams made an appearance on the Conan O' Brien show to discuss her new role in the movie "The Fighter" and the 2 chatted about Kate O'Brien, Conan's sister and an actress who starred in "The Fighter" alongside Amy Adams.

She makes her acting debut in the upcoming film “The Fighter,” which stars Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale and Amy Adams. O’Brien plays Phyllis ‘Beaver’ Ecklund – the sister of Wahlberg’s character Mickey. Amy Adams says “she did an amazing job and she loved the experience.” Adams told Conan that to get the real local character, they did the movie with the real people. Conan’s sister said there was a lot of physical fighting that they needed to do in the movie – Amy Adams talks more about having to fake fight and her fear of fake punches.

So possibly Conan O brien's sister's big break into showbiz and she will be hoping she can get a certain amount of fame that her brother boasts having.

So, no matter what you need to print on your CDs and DVDs -- you can feel confident with the Bravo II's performance and reliability. Best of all, Bravo II delivers truly professional results at an affordable price.

Amazon Customer review: "This system has been a blessing for me. I used to print CD's one at a time and it was a real pain. As my business grew I needed more power. I recieved this two days before my daughter was born and set it up to use while I was on PAternity duty. It setup easy and ran very low maintenance. I was running it on a computer that was doing nothing but that, and technically not up to the spec they recommend. Occassionally I have to reboot the machine, but that's the case with any windows machine. I think it approx. 18 months I have likely burned and printed about 6000 CD's. Business is growing again and I recently bought a high speed duplicator. That machine cost me $1100 and will do 11 CD's or 43 seconds for me so my bravo is just used for printing now.

I strongly recommend this. It's not perfect, but nothing with moving parts that is used alot is going to be no maintenance forever. This machine has been a stud for me...."

So a very impressive and efficient manufacturing product of CD and DVD data and images for them and definitely a must buy for people mass producing them.
