Ian Hoch's Me and Drew Video

New Orleans comedian and activist Ian Hoch started writing the song Me and Drew as a fan tribute to Drew Brees. According to Hoch, he wrote the song while traveling in Europe in summer of 2010.
"Me and Drew" is a song I actually started writing while traveling in Europe this summer. I couldn't watch the first game of the season where I was and I got this crazy idea to write a song about the Saints - then somewhere along the line it became all about Drew Brees and it evolved into a solid love ballad.
Here's the funny Ian Hoch's Me and drew video:

The song proclaims, "Your birthmark is the finest feature of your fine face." Check out this funny video of Oprah as she mistaked Drew Bree's birthmark to a lipstick.

Drew Brees Scar Video

It looked like that the Drew Brees scar wasn't a scar after all.

Here's the Drew Brees scar video where Oprah had mistaken the scar on Drew Brees' right cheek as a lipstick and she tried to rub it off his face. Some had thought Oprah was so funny to have mistaken his birthmark to a lipstick.

Anyways, here's a music video of the song Me and Drew written by activist Ian Hoch as a tribute to Drew Brees. Watch the Me and Drew music video here.

Rex Ryan Foot | Rex Ryan Foot Video

Here's the Rex Ryan foot, particularly described as the Rex Ryan foot video that's abuzzing the internet for hours. Reports said that Rex Ryan's wife, Michelle Ryan, posted foot-fetish videos starring herself online. Take a look at one of these videos and judge for yourself. The video shows a woman with her feet out the window and showing in the mirror of the SUV as well.

Rex Ryan would not comment on the reported videos. But Deadspin has this to say:
But the connections only begin with surface resemblances. We found "ihaveprettyfeet"'s personal profile on a foot fetishist dating site. She lists her location as Ellicott City, Md. When Rex Ryan was an assistant coach with the Ravens, his profile on the official team city had him living with his family in Ellicott City, Md. Michelle Ryan was born in August 1963, a Virgo. "ihaveprettyfeet" lists herself as a Virgo. Michelle Ryan taught high school English before retiring to raise her kids; "ihaveprettyfeet" has a graduate degree, is married with kids, and lists herself as a homemaker. Michelle Ryan once said that, in heels, she was "a foot [shorter]" than her 6'4" husband; "ihaveprettyfeet" lists herself as 5'2". To be sure, there is also an Ellicott City "ihaveprettyfeet" listed on this swingers site. It's a couple's profile. The husband checks in at a very un-Rexlike 5'10, 180 pounds.
So what do you think? Are the persons in the Rex Ryan foot video the Ryan couple themselves? Check out more videos of Michelle Ryan with her foot at deadspin.com.

Julianne Hough "Is That So Wrong" Full Video

Julianne Hough

Here's the hard-to-find Julianne Hough's "Is That So Wrong" full video that was reportedly banned from CMT and removed from YouTube because of its content. In the Julianne Hough "Is That So Wrong" video, Hough is seen stripping down to her bra and sliding around on a bed. I think the “Is That So Wrong” music video is as worse as that of Miley Cyrus "Can't Be Tamed" video, which can be too racy for younger kids.

Watch this Julianne Hough "Is That So Wrong" full video below.

2010 Time Person of the Year: Mark Zuckerberg

2010 Time Person of the Year, Mark Zuckerberg 2010 Time Person of the Year

Mark Elliot Zuckerberg, Facebook CEO and co-founder is 2010 Time Person of the Year. He is chosen for connecting more than half a billion people and mapping the social relations among them, for creating a new system of exchanging information and for changing how we live our lives, Time said.

But is Zuckerberg right for the title? Take a look at some of the comments posted in time.com about this 2010 Time Person of the Year.
From Evi1M4chine:
Guys, I’ve got a guy here working at TIME, who tells me that Zuckerberg paid to get his face on the cover. He also tell me, things like this are not unusual. Can’t tell if he’s lying, but his credentials check out. And he’s at the exactly right place to make it plausible.
From Facebook Rotten:
Zuckerberg was voted Time's so-called person of the year because Facebook offers Time a lot more potential upside than Wikileaks. Time can get eyeballs and demographic marketing info on users from FB. And possible advertising partnerships. Assange's Wikileaks does not offer this.

Time has a Facebook button so people can link stories from the site to their FB accounts. And like many news websites now, Time encourages readers to use their Facebook or other social media login credentials to post comments. Time gets access to people's info from Facebook when they login to Time via their Facebook account.

Choosing Zuckerberg was unethical given Time's relationship with Facebook. Saying that Zuckerberg's company allows people to connect in a new, empowering way is disengenuous and cynical. The point of FB is to make money on advertising and suck people's demographic info out of them for the advertisers and content partners such as Time.
Here's the list of the candidates for 2010 Time Person of the Year including Mark Zuckerberg:
  1. Julian Assange
  2. Glenn Beck
  3. David Cameron
  4. The Chilean Miners
  5. Arne Duncan
  6. Recep Tayyip Erdogan
  7. Jonathan Franzen
  8. Lady Gaga
  9. Robert Gates
  10. Tony Hayward
  11. Hu Jintao
  12. LeBron James
  13. Steve Jobs
  14. Hamid Karzai
  15. David and Charles Koch
  16. Liu Xiaobo
  17. Barack Obama
  18. Sarah Palin
  19. Nancy Pelosi
  20. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf
  21. Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert
  22. The Unemployed American
  23. J. Craig Venter
  24. Elizabeth Warren, Mary Schapiro and Sheila Bair
  25. Mark Zuckerberg

Scarlett Johansson breast size pictures

Scarlett Johansson breast size picture | Scarlett Johansson Iron Man 2

The Scarlett Johansson breast size is building a huge traffic over the web as millions of fans are trying to figure out the actual measurement of their adored celebrity. Scarlett Johansson is one of the sexiest actresses in the world mainly because of her breast size. She was chosen as the woman with sexiest breasts in Hollywood by In Touch magazine in 2009.

Iron Man 2’ is the latest movie featuring Scarlett wherein she’s playing an assistant to Stark as Natasha Romanoff. But why are they looking for Scarlett's size? Here's an incident:
In 2008 Scarlett Johnson was seen a bit embarrassed when Isaac Mizrahi, the E! Red Carpet host, touched her breasts, by mistake I guess, live in front of camera. After the incident the 24 years old blonde told the L.A. Times “It was truly embarrassing for me, as I was fondled by someone whom I have never met before, just for his own pleasure”.
So what do you think? Check out this Scarlett Johansson breast size pictures below.

Stem Cell Transplant as Cure for HIV | 'Berlin Patient' cured of HIV

Stem Cell Transplant as Cure for HIV | Berlin Patient cured of HIV

There's a recent medical breakthrough believing the stem cell transplant as cure for HIV. Doctors believe an HIV-positive man who underwent a stem cell transplant has been cured as a result of the procedure, as reported by The Huffington Post.
Timothy Ray Brown, also known as the "Berlin Patient," received the transplant in 2007 as part of a lengthy treatment course for leukemia. His doctors recently published a report in the journal Blood affirming that the results of extensive testing "strongly suggest that cure of HIV infection has been achieved."
This stem cell transplant as cure for HIV can give hope for those suffering from the virus, but wait. Here's another report showing another perspective from hotair.com:
The transplant appeared to wipe out both diseases, giving hope to doctors, but Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, who has been studying HIV/AIDS for almost 30 years, said while this is an interesting proof of concept, it’s absurdly impractical.

“It’s hard enough to get a good compatible match for a transplant like this,” Fauci told FoxNews.com, “But you also have to find compatible donor that has this genetic defect, and this defect is only found in 1 percent of the Caucasian population and zero percent of the black population. This is very rare.”…

“This is not prime time to me at all,” he said. “This is a very unusual situation that has little practical application for a simple reason. This donor not only had to be a good compatible match, but the donor had to have a genetic defect of cells that do not express the receptor that the HIV virus needs to enter the cell.”

Fauci also pointed to the fact that this transplant process is not only expensive, it’s incredibly painful and complicated, and requires the patient to start a whole new regimen of drugs.
With that above, will other HIV patients want to go to the same procedures that Timothy went through? Read more about the stem cell transplant as cure for HIV and check out their comments. Just click on the link.

Hubert Webb and Five Others: Acquitted of Visconde Massacre Case

Hubert Webb and Five Others: Acquitted of Visconde Massacre Case

Hubert Webb and Five Others, acquitted of Visconde Massacre Case: After 15 years of incarceration, Visconde massacre suspects Hubert Webb, son of former senator and 5 others namely, Antonio "Tony Boy" Lejano, son of actress Pinky de Leon; Michael Gatchalian and Miguel Rodriguez, sons of prominent lawyers; Peter Estrada, son of a wealthy businessman; Pyke Fernandez, son of a retired commodore; and former police officer Gerardo Biong, were acquitted by the Supreme Court. With 7 justices voting for acquittal, 4 dissenting with the majority opinion, and 4 abstentions, the high court has allowed Hubert Webb and five others to be freed.

With the acquittal ruling, any filing for an appeal is definitely impossible due to the doctrine of double jeopardy.
In a press conference, SC spokesman Jose Midas Marquez said the decision is couched on “the failure of the prosecution to prove their guilt beyond reasonable doubt.”

“The majority is questioning the quality of the testimonies [of witnesses]…and their inherent inconsistencies,” he said.
The Supreme Court’s ruling did not give a closure to the decade long case. Rather it has provoked questions like, “ Who really killed Estrellita Vizconde and her daughters Carmela and Jennifer?”

Skywatchers really had a good reason to stay overnight. Grab your blankets and don't miss to watch the best meteor shower in 2010, the Geminid meteor shower. And not only that, December's night sky spectacular will also feature the only total lunar eclipse of the year which will occur on December 20th.

The Geminid meteor shower is rich in fireballs and can be seen from almost any point on Earth. This meteor shower peaks this year on Dec. 13th and 14th, and is the most intense meteor shower of the year which will last for days, according to NASA.
"Of all the debris streams Earth passes through every year, the Geminids' is by far the most massive," says Cooke. "When we add up the amount of dust in the Geminid stream, it outweighs other streams by factors of 5 to 500."
So bundle up and stay warm!

Montana Fishburne Playboy pictures

Montana Fishburne Playboy pictures

Here are Montana Fishburne Playboy pictures. TMZ has learned that Montana recently did a nude “test” photo shoot for Playboy Magazine. Montana Fishburne really is trying to follow Kim Kardashian’s path to fame....but a lot of negative comments will surely come her way.

In the photos, Montana goes full-frontal, and these photos were taken BEFORE anyone knew about Fishburne’s sex tape.

It seems that those who want to push themselves to fame, sometimes find their way in nudity.

Oscar Grant Verdict | BART Verdict: Mehserle Involuntary Manslaughter

Oscar Grant Verdict | BART Verdict: Mehserle Involuntary Manslaughter

The Oakland Oscar Grant verdict has finally come out and here's the verdict. Former Bay Area Transit officer, Johannes Mehserle has been found guilty in the 2009 shooting which resulted to the death of Oscar J. Grant III.

Oscar Grant, 22, was shot in the back with one bullet from Mehserle's gun while the two struggled on a BART platform. Oscar Grant was face down on the platform when he was shot and killed. But on video of the incident, Johannes Mehserle was reportedly heard saying, "Oh my God!" several times, adding to the evidence that he had no intention of shooting Oscar Grant.

Hundreds of people that have gathered in downtown Oakland near 14th Street and Broadway were angered by the verdict involuntary manslaughter instead of a more severe second-degree murder conviction. But the jury believes that Johannes Mehserle did not intend to kill Oscar Grant but acted negligently. The verdict of involuntary manslaughter may result in a four to fifteen year prison term for Mehserle.

Here's what the mother of Oscar Grant had said after the verdict was read:
“The system has let us down, but God will never, ever let us down. Though the system has failed us, though we fight continually, but one thing I know but the race is not given to the swift or to the strong, but to the one who endures until the end. As a family and as a nation of African-American people, we will continue to fight for our equal rights in this society. My son was murdered. He was murdered. He was murdered. He was murdered.”

Actress Lindsay Lohan had not learned her lessons well. In violating the terms of her probation in a 2007 drug case (i.e. failing to attend court-ordered alcohol education classes), Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel ruled out a 90 days sentence in jail and an inpatient rehab program for Lindsay Lohan on Tuesday, according to AP.

Lohan immediately burst into tears after the ruling. But she was not immediately taken into custody. Lohan was given a chance to settle her affairs before she will surrender herself on July 20. She will have to wear an ankle alcohol monitor until then.

The Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular is the nation's premier 4th of July celebration. It is proudly presented by Liberty Mutual. Here's a brief review about the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular as provided by their official website:
The event was founded in 1974 when David Mugar suggested to famed Boston Pops Conductor, Arthur Fiedler, that in order to revive the diminishing Esplanade concert series it might be a good idea to play Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture” with a few extras. For the next Fourth of July, howitzer cannons, fireworks and church bells were added to the concert so that, in Arthur Fiedler’s own words, “All Hell could break loose.” For the first time, a July Fourth fireworks display took place over the Charles River.
And this year, the 37th Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular has already started with concerts but no fireworks on July 3rd. Here's the schedule of events for July 4th including the concerts and fireworks.

Christina Perri - Jar of Hearts lyrics

Singer/songwriter Christina Perri had her song Jar of Hearts featured on So You Think You Can Dance performance in Billy and Kathryn’s routine. Here's the Jar of Hearts lyrics by Christina Perri:

Jar of Hearts Lyrics

i know i can’t take one more step towards you
cause all that's waiting is regret
don’t you know i’m not your ghost anymore
you lost the love i loved the most

i learned to live, half alive
and now you want me one more time

who do you think you are?
runnin’ ’round leaving scars
collecting a jar of hearts
tearing love apart
you’re gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul
don’t come back for me
who do you think you are?

i hear you’re asking all around
if i am anywhere to be found
but i have grown too strong
to ever fall back in your arms

i've learned to live, half alive
and now you want me one more time

and who do you think you are?
runnin’ ’round leaving scars
collecting a jar of hearts
and tearing love apart
you’re gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul
so don’t come back for me
who do you think you are?

it took so long just to feel alright
remember how to put back the light in my eyes
i wish i had missed the first time that we kissed
cause you broke all your promises
and now you’re back
you don’t get to get me back

who do you think you are?
running around leaving scars
collecting a jar of hearts
and tearing love apart
you’re gonna catch a cold
from the ice inside your soul
so don’t come back for me
don't come back at all

who do you think you are?
who do you think you are?
who do you think you are?

Tiger Woods Divorce

Tiger Woods Divorce

Image: Wife Elin and Woods before the controversy

Reports are roaming around that the Tiger Woods' divorce is on its finality with only a filing in Orlando County Court by Wife Elin remaining. Elin is reportedly asking for a $750 million divorce settlement.

Reports from The Sun and The Herald argue that while Tiger's fear is Elin's speaking out, her fear is protection of the children against Tiger's "womanzing".

So what made the two to agree on the settlement?

Considered to be the biggest pay-out of a celebrity divorce ever, there are conditions, however.
  1. For Elin: Her eternal silence. "No interviews, tell-all books, or TV appearances about this for the rest of her life - even if Tiger dies first - or she'll lose the lot."
  2. For Woods:Tiger may not bring any other females around their children.
  3. Elin gets full physical custody of the kids but they share legal custody. That means Tiger will share decisions about the kids. He will be able to visit his kids up to half a week per week but without the company of any woman that isn’t related to Woods as a spouse or fiancée.
Is $750 million just right to shut Elin up, making way for the rebuilt of Woods' damaged reputation?

New Wonder Woman

Wonder Woman

After so many years, 69 in exact since her debut in 1941, Wonder Woman is about to have a costume make-over. According to www.nytimes.com, the new Wonder Woman costume was designed by artist Jim Lee (who in February was named co-publisher of DC) to fit her into the 21st century crimefighting. The new Wonder Woman will appear in the publication of Issue No. 600 of her monthly series. Here's the new Wonder Woman in her less revealing but tougher look costume.

Hmmm, I think I like the new Wonder Woman.

Guatemala Sinkhole Pictures | Guatemala Crater

Here are Guatemala sinkhole pictures as released by the Government of Guatemala. This Guatemala crater just suddenly appeared in the northern part of Guatemala City after the zone was hit by tropical storm Agatha. Since the sinkhole appeared in an intersection, there were no casualties as a result. Look at the pictures below. I wondered how deep is this Guatemala sinkhole. What could have happened if this Guatemala crater appeared in a populated residential area at night time. I don't want to think about it.

Guatemala Sinkhole Pictures | Guatemala Crater
According to nachi.org, there are two types of sinkholes - the natural sinkholes and the human-induced sinkholes.
  1. Natural sinkholes are formed when sub-surface rock dissolves to create underground cavities. They are most often found where the rock below the land surface is limestone, dolomite, carbonate rock, salt beds, or rocks that can be naturally dissolved by circulating groundwater. In the U.S., natural sinkholes are most common in Florida where karst (limestone) geography is an ingrained part of the landscape. Other states where natural sinkholes are likely to be found are Texas, Alabama, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee and Pennsylvania. Natural sinkholes often form following a period of heavy or prolonged rain. They may also form following a period of drought, which can lower the water table and expose cavities.
  2. Human-induced sinkholes are consequences of land-use practices, especially water-pumping and construction. Other types of human-induced sinkholes result from:
  • abandoned septic tanks. Even as communities modernize and switch from septic to sewer systems, the old septic tanks may remain in place. The concrete cover may eventually crack and break down, allowing the earth above to drop suddenly, especially beneath the weight of a person. In one week in 2004, two such incidents occurred in New Jersey and in Texas, claiming the lives of a 2-year-old girl and a 92-year-old woman. Check with the local zoning office, which should know whether the house was built before sewer lines came into the neighborhood, which would indicate the possible presence of an abandoned septic tank;
  • decaying, buried organic material, such as tree roots or trash. In 1993, a 7-year-old New Jersey boy fell to his death in his front yard after the ground beneath him gave way. A vein of tree debris, which had been dumped there many years before, had formed air pockets into which the soil gradually seeped, leaving a weakened surface that appeared solid;
  • collapsed mines;
  • over-pumping existing water supply wells, or drilling additional wells in close proximity, thereby lowering the aquifer; and
  • the period following housing development, which adds pressure to the supporting earth.

Pac-Man 30th Anniversary

Pac-Man 30th Anniversary | Google Pac-Man

It's Pac-Man 30th Anniversary, and in honor of this timeless game which is now 30 years old, Google commissioned a special logo to appear on the main search page that inserts Google's name into the old maze-like playing field of Pac-Man. You can actually play Pac-Man on Google today, so check it out.

And here's a little about Pac-Man game from Wikipedia:
Pac-Man (パックマン Pakkuman?) is an arcade game developed by Namco and licensed for distribution in the U.S. by Midway, first released in Japan on May 22, 1980. Immensely popular in the United States from its original release to the present day, Pac-Man is universally considered as one of the classics of the medium, virtually synonymous with video games, and an icon of the 1980s popular culture. Upon its release, the game—and, subsequently, its derivatives—became a social phenomenon that sold a bevy of merchandise and also inspired, among other things, an animated television series and a top-ten hit single.

7 Year Old Single Ladies

7 Year Old Single Ladies. It's not only Greyson Michael Chance's Paparazzi that has become viral this week. Another performance video stirred so much controversy in the media. But unlike Greyson's video which earned him a massive popularity, this video of a group of girls called the 7 Year Old Single Ladies received quite the opposite.

The 7-year-old Single Ladies video was shot at last month’s World of Dance Competition, which features a troupe of elementary age girls dancing to the tune of Beyonce's hit "Single Ladies". There's nothing wrong with dancing Beyonce's Single Ladies, actually. But it would certainly be inappropriate and quite disturbing if the dance is performed by elementary girls while wearing burlesque-style outfits. See the picture below.
7 Year Old Single LadiesWell, there's a question, "Is America being over-sexed?" What do you think?

Here's a video clip of the performance of the 7 Year Old Single Ladies:

Augustana | Augustana Band From San Diego

Augustana | Augustana Band From San Diego

Augustana is Greyson Michael Chance's favourite band. Greyson thinks the Augustana is one of the most underrated bands that has ever set foot on the earth. To him, Augustana has a good concept of rock and folk music so it’s sad for him that the band is so unknown.

Augustana is an American rock band from San Diego best known for their singles, “Boston” and “Sweet and Low.”

Embedding the video has been disabled. To watch Augustana "Sweet and Low" Official Music Video, just click on the link. This song is great. Thanks to Greyson Michael Chance, this band will no longer be unknown.

Anyways, here's the lyrics of "Sweet and Low":
Anywhere you go, anyone you meet,
Remember that your eyes can be your enemies,
I said, well hell is so close
And heaven's out of reach
I ain't giving up quite yet,
I've got too much to lose

Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, sweet and low, and I'll carry you home
Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, and I'll carry you home

Rain is gonna fall, the sun is gonna shine,
The wind is gonna blow, the water's gonna rise
She said, when the day comes, look into my eyes
No one's giving up quite yet,
We've got too much to lose

Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, sweet and low, and I'll carry you home
Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down,

And I'll carry you all the way,
You say you're fine
But you're still young, and out of line
All I need is to turn around,
To make it last, to make it count
You're gonna make the same mistakes
That put my momma in her grave
I don't wanna be alone

Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, sweet and low, and I'll carry you home
Hold me down, sweet and low, little girl
Hold me down, and I'll carry you home

Surely, this boy got an awesome talent. Watch the videos of his original compositions of "Broken Hearts" and "Stars" as proof. So what inspires this young talent? Here's what he has to say:
I am very inspired by Lady Gaga and Augustana. Lady Gaga is a freak but she has so much talent and her style of music is what I would like mine to be when im older. Augustana is one of the most underated bands I think ever to step the planet. They have so much talent it is not funny. They have such a good concept with folk and rock. It is very sad that they are so unknown.
