Coldplay de-coded

by

Coldplay_1Some blokes with too much time on their hands were able to decode the new Coldplay album cover.  Here’s what they came up with: [From NME.com]

…the seemingly random blocks of colour are in fact a 19th century telegraphic code.

The centre pages of the ’X&Y’ inlay shows the full telegraphic alphabet, with the vertical arrangements of blocks representing each letter of the regular alphabet, as well as the coding for numbers and other symbols such as brackets, question marks and ampersands.

When applied to the cover image, it is revealed that the configuration of blocks spells out ‘X&Y’, whilst the message at the back of the album’s booklet says, ’Make Trade Fair’. The colour scheming is merely for decoration.

I don’t know whether to be disappointed that it turned out to be really boring, or just relieved that it has nothing to do with Gwyneth.

I agree with fair trade, though. Like, when you go back to the record store to trade X&Y in, you should definitely get $5 or $6 back in store credit. Thanks for looking out, Chris.

Lohan may be done with the partying, but the partying ain’t done with her. Whatever you say Ms. Blowhan.

Hollywood is just as sick of celebrity romance as we are, but breaking up with the paparazzi is harder than it looks.

In order to win Americans back to the Democratic party, Kerry releases his college transcripts to prove he’s no smarter than Bush. D’s stand for distinction, says Kerry.

Meanwhile, Nelson Mandela spreads his AIDS to the Artic. WHAT? OH…oh…AIDS message. AIDS MESSAGE. Not AIDS. Whew. I was worried for a second. Mandela spreads AIDS message to the Arctic.

Goodbye Mrs. Robinson. Cinema’s first MILF, Anne Bancroft died of uterine cancer on Monday at Mount Sinai Hospital.   

Go ahead and call him crazy, Michael Jackson wont go anywhere without his personal magician, Majestik Magnificent. I wish I could take credit for coming up with that name, but unfortunately that’s actually what he calls himself. Only in my nightmares could I be that creative.

Eminem has a crush on the hot spice girl and not the one who looks awful naked.

Only Angelina Jolie could make leather look both classy and hot. You can find more Mr. and Mrs. Smith Los Angeles premiere pictures here.

and last but most definitely not least, you can now buy your favorite Amish Clothes online. The online clothing shop is aptly named "Plainly Dressed". With a nice pair of oversized sunglasses, I could see an Olsen or two sporting this classic yet chic style.

Triumph

I stumbled upon a favorite Triumph the Insult Comic Dog moment and feel like sharing: Triumph gives the Hawaii weather forecast. I am starting to think that puppets should just do the news from now on. I don’t think I can go back to watching the weather channel again until all the puppets of the world unite and take over the newsroom.[watch now]

For a little Triumph tribute, check out these classic videos:

and you’ll find a few more videos at the NBC Triumph video page or you could just go buy the Triumph DVD already and be done with it.

Tuesday’s Quick Hits: Catfights & Keanu

by

I predict two upcoming celebrity cat fights…

Part I: "No way They are not coming to my party" - Lindsay Lohan talking about the Simpson siblings. What started over Wilmer just won’t stop.  Let’s just hope  that Duff doesn’t get involved, because this has to the potential to turn into an all out battle roy-al.

Part II: "I’m not some crazy, Tara Reid-esque party girl. I want to be in this for the long run." -Lindsay Lohan on Tara Reid. I bet Tara would be offended if she wasn’t too out of it to understand.

Stevie Wonder’s wife gave birth to the singer’s 7th child on Wednesday.  The baby boy looks just like Stevie… or at least that’s what they’re telling him.

Victoria Beckham came to the defense of her pals Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes saying, "It’s for real alright. Tom and Katie were all over each other when we were at his house. They were massively in love by the looks of things.” She added that "all they really wanted was to ziggy-zig-ah," but to the best of her knowledge, 2 did NOT become 1 that night.

Keanu Reeves married in LA? Whoa! Whoa? Whoa….

Britney Spears was reportedly spotted buying infant clothes for a girl. Some people think that means she’s having a girl, while others just look forward to Britney trying to squeeze her ass into them like she used to.

This kid has skills. Even if he doesn’t know how to read he could still impress the ladies with his mad breaking dancing skills. I am also about 59.2% sure this kid has no bones.[watch now ]

While we are digging up oldies, check out matrix style pingpong. The year 2003 was a great year, I can’t wait until VH1 shows it some love. I could watch this every day and still be amused. Click it Neo… click it.

Macy’s celebrates the wedding of Paris²

by

PanWhat do you get for the couple that has everything, including matching names?

Well, I guess you just have to check out Paris and Paris’s Macys gift registry to find out.

I have a hard time believing this is real. The woman had no clue what a Walmart was 2 years ago, so I think it’s safe to say Paris wouldn’t be caught dead in Macy’s.

But just in case it is, I would like to draw attention to a few humorous items on the registry for your viewing pleasure:

1) Heart shaped muffin pans
2) bed sheets with a mere 350 thread count.
3) a flowered duvet.

Wow, that’s so cute! Paris and Paris are just like us… only billionaires. And icky.[see registry here]
