Miranda Kerr, Candice Swanepoel, and Alessandra Ambrosio


04/01/10 - I am posting this for no other reason than because Miranda Kerr, Candice Swanepoel, and Alessandra Ambrosio are three of my favorite supermodels and they were all in one place at the same time. Click here for more pics. Enjoy!

Film: Sequel To Planet Earth?

Discovery Channel Life


04/01/10 - So we all know that Planet Earth is one of the best nature documentaries ever. The Discovery Channel also knows this and figured that if they made some sort of sequel they could make a crap ton more money. Makes since to me. They are calling it Life.

They decided to have Oprah narrate it. I have nothing against Oprah, but apparently Discovery is already having some issues with her. I guess she threw a temper tantrum during an interview with the bats because they just flew around and wouldn't answer any of her questions. I sort of see where she's coming from though. That would be totally annoying.

MGM Bankrupt


04/01/10 - Who wants to buy MGM Studios? Apparently, they are selling themselves (yes, on a street corner). The CEO is currently offering "handsies" for $10 and "mouthies" for $20. That's honestly a really good r ate. Not that I would know. It just seems like a really good rate.

Charlie Sheen


04/01/10 - Charlie Sheen reportedly wants to quit Two and a Half Men. Whatever, I don't blame him. Didn't he just get out of rehab? If I had just wasted a bunch of time in rehab, I'd want to take some time off to do drugs and bang hot chicks too, wouldn't you?

Jesse James Nazi


04/01/10 - So yeah, I'm just gonna let this picture speak for itself. I don't know that it's fair to jump to conclusions, but, well, yeah...okay, he's definitely a Nazi. What an f-ing idiot. Why would he ever think this would be a good picture to take?

Oh yeah, there are now 5 ugly tattooed chicks claiming he had an affair with them. The funny thing is, you'd think since he hates black people that he wouldn't like chicks who were almost colored black with nasty tattoos, but to each his own I guess.

Gadgets: Time Travel! Maybe...

 

collider

 

03/31/10 - I suppose this is one of the most important things to happen in my lifetime, so I better write about it. I know it’s not as cool as “walking on the moon,” but it’s still pretty damn awesome. Check it out:

The New York Times said today, “Champagne bottles were popped Tuesday in Geneva where the largest science machine ever built finally began to smash subatomic particles together. After 16 years—and an accident that crippled the machine a year and a half ago—the Large Hadron Collider successfully smashed two beams of protons at the astounding energy of 3.5 trillion electron volts apiece. This act produced temperatures not seen since the Big Bang occurred 13.7 billions years ago.”

Why is this important you might ask? Well, if you’re reading this 40 years from now, you probably know why it was important, but in case you’re a dumb ass (or the experiments failed), here’s why it could very easily be the coolest thing ever (list taken from theweek.com):

It could...

 

1. Kill us all...
The "early collisions" in the now-operational LHC might seem to disprove "doom-monger" theories that the machine would create an Earth-devouring black hole, says The Daily Telegraph. But pessimists point out: It's "still only running at half power." Relax, says Professor Stephen Hawking, quoted by the BBC: "Collisions at these and greater energies occur millions of times a day in the Earth's atmosphere, and nothing terrible happens."

2. Reveal new dimensions...
String theory — the mathematical idea that the world is made up of "tiny vibrating strings rather than point-like particles" — posits the existence of ten dimensions, according to Plus Magazine. Six are "curled up so tightly that we cannot perceive them." But in a high-energy environment, physicists may be able to detect particles "jumping in and out" of them.

3. Uncover the origins of the universe...
In creating "ultra-high energy collisions," says DK Matai in the Huffington Post, "scientists are mimicking the conditions just after the Big Bang" — trillionths of a second after, to be precise. Researchers hope the behavior of particles in this state will shed light on the moment of creation itself.

4. Explain why matter has mass...
This is where the "Higgs Boson" comes in, explains the Christian Science Monitor. Scientists are not yet sure what caused subatomic particles (which include quarks, leptons and bosons) to gain mass in the instants after the Big Bang. A scientist named Peter Higgs theorised that an elusive, invisible boson "imparts mass" to them. If the LHC can find evidence of this particle, it will validate Higgs' theories on why matter has mass.

5. Shed light on dark matter and dark energy...
Dark matter is "the heavy stuff" that scientists believe makes up around 22 percent of the universe, says Jonathan Fahey at Forbes. It is invisible — neither generating nor reflecting radiation — but the collisions at the LHC are expected to make it detectable. Scientists also want to discover the origins of dark energy, a hypothetical form of energy that makes up 74% of the universe and is somehow "pushing it apart." Finding dark energy is considered a longshot: 12 to 1, according to the Irish bookmaker Paddy Power.

6. Allow us to time travel...
If string theory (see above) can be proved, then theoretically humans may be able to travel between these "hidden dimensions" of space and time, says the CS Monitor. Sounds unlikely, but some physicists have hypothesized that a "malign influence from the future" had a hand in delaying the LHC, says Dennis Overbye in the N.Y. Times, travelling back in time because the experiments are "so abhorrent to nature."

TV: LOST Recap - S. 6 Ep. 9

Paul C. Johnson


03/30/10 - So, last week I went to watch LOST at some bar in Union Square where they have weekly viewings for hardcore fans. It was decently cool, but it was way over crowded, you couldn't see the sub-titles and it was hard as shit to hear, not to mention the beer was over priced. But whatever, it was cool to talk to crazy LOST fanatics like myself. There was also some chick walking around in a Darma costume, which I thought was pretty cool.

Anyway, I think the episode itself was awesome. It's one of my favorites for sure. I've always liked Richard. I was glad to see his character finally have an entire show to himself. I'm still a little confused though. Is it hell, or is it not hell? What the fuck is going on? At this point, I don't even want to know. I just want the show to end with unanswered questions and then have a new spin-off show with the same cast start up, but take place in a big city...wait, I guess that's Flash Forward. Whatever, I don't care what happens. I just wanna see Michael Emmerson and Terry O'Quinn get some good gigs after this. They deserve it.

So, enough about that. Here's the real reason I wanted to write about LOST this week. See that dude in the picture about 6 inches up on your screen? Yeah, his name is Paul C. Johnson and he is a huge dick. Well, okay, not really. He's actually pretty cool, but whatever. He's a friend of mine who just moved from New York to Hawaii (just for the hell of it) and somehow got cast as an extra for one of the final episodes of LOST. Granted, he's an actor, so it's not like it's completely random, but still, I would kill to be an extra on that show. I mean seriously, I would punch a cute little kid in the face just to carry a log by Kate and Sawyer. Ok, maybe not a little little kid, but like a 13 year old fat kid that no one likes. I'd definitely punch him in the face.

BUT WAIT! There's more! After doing a bang up job as an extra, he also got asked to come in for a reading for a possible line in the season finale as well! WTF?!? The asshole just moved there three weeks ago for shits sake. I'm honestly sick to my stomach with jealousy. I almost want to fly down there and tell them that they should cast me instead because I know how to build shelters and throw knives and stuff. I mean, it's not like I need to be able to act as long as I can tie a rope or something, right? Oh whatever, I guess it's a LOST cause. (Hahaha. That pun was completely intended. Hahahaha. I'm so damn clever.)

Anyway, bottom line, if you see his stupid little face on the season finale, please throw something at the screen and scream, "That dick head doesn't even know how to build a fire!" It will make me feel a lot better. Whatever, enough jealous ranting. I'm going to go drink the cheap $3 wine I just bought at Trader Joe's and cry myself to sleep. Good night cruel world.
