Her Many Scarey Faces Miss Love



A collection of the many terrifying faces of Courtney Love. Some how the picture above didn’t make the cut. Probably because no one was brave enough to look at it long enough, save it on their desktop, upload it on to this site, only to stare at it for another 60 seconds. I would close my eyes but it wont help me. The image is burned into my brain now.[link]

Can Eva revamp the art of cheating?



Eva Longoria told Britain’s Eve magazine: "I end up overlapping people
because I know I’m over the relationship, so I move on without telling
them. It’s not good. I’ve never broken up with someone successfully." .

Interesting way of looking at it, Eva. I mean, I’m pretty sure that logic works only in your head, as your ex-boyfriend(s) might see your overlapping and raise you one (possible several) count(s) of cheating. But I’m going to give Eva the benefit of the doubt today and examine the term ‘Overlapping‘ to see if it truly applies to her behavior:

     adj 1: related by having something in common with or coinciding
            with; "having overlapping duties"; "found unexpected
            overlapping areas of interest"
     2: laid overlapping (not flush) [syn: lap-jointed, lap-strake,
         lap-straked, lap-streak, lap-streaked]
     n : covering with a design in which one element covers a part of
         another (as with tiles or shingles) [syn: imbrication,

Okay while I’m sure it involved a lap or two, lets take a look at the term ‘cheating’:

     adj 1: not faithful to a spouse or lover; "adulterous husbands and
            wives"; "a two-timing boyfriend" [syn: adulterous, cheating,
     2: violating accepted standards or rules; "a dirty fighter";
        "used foul means to gain power"; "a nasty unsporting
        serve"; "fined for unsportsmanlike behavior" [syn: cheating,
         dirty, foul, unsporting, unsportsmanlike]
     n : a deception for profit to yourself [syn: cheat]

Hmm. Maybe two-timing was the word Eva was looking for. I’m sure that’s it. The press can make people nervous. I’m sure she just meant "I end up two-timing people
because I know I’m over the relationship, so I move on without telling
them. It’s not good. I’ve never broken up with someone successfully." .

There. That sounds just about right.

The Pussycat Dolls and their collective right to live



"I spent an unhealthy amount of time yesterday pondering the collective fates of the Pussycat Dolls.

constitutes an unhealthy amount of time is debatable, of course. I
probably spent about five minutes honestly thinking about it while on a
run last night, followed by another five minutes thinking if it would
be something worth writing about. All told, that’s 10 minutes of
thinking about the demise of a presumed one-hit wonder pop group with
no redeemable social values, which is probably about 11 minutes too
much."[ continue reading…]

The iPod nano



"Take everything you love about iPod and shrink it. Now shrink it again.
With 2GB (500 songs) and 4GB (1,000 songs) models starting at $199, the
pencil-thin iPod nano packs the entire iPod experience into an
impossibly small design. So small, it will take your music places you
never dreamed of."

Hmm it’s no wider than a pencil and here I thought bigger was better. Once again I have been proven wrong by Apple.[Engaget report]

“Mego superhero action figure commercials form the 70s”



"Currently video upload site
You Tube is on fire with old ads for those Mego Action Heroes,
the 8 inch (and occasionally 3 3/4 inch) tall action figure dolls from
the 70s. If you were alive back then, even only barely, this is one
heavy flashback to all the cool stuff you wanted but couldn’t have, or
had an abundance of and enjoyed lording over kids who are still angry
about it and still want to kill you with your own ripped off limb even
if they should know better by now."
