When Jay Leno left his Tonight Show with NBC to do his Jay Leno Show, everyone was disappointed except for CBS and David Letterman. But i think now they may have a case to be disappointed as well. It seems nothing has changed on his show. He had Kanye West on his show recently, who felt remoresful for his charade at the MTV music awards, and did apologize, but also managed to jam with Rihanna and Jay-z afterwards. There was still Kevin Eubanks, the same political jokes including Bush, Cheney and a cash for clunkers one. As Jerry Seinfeld put it when on the show, “In the ’90s, when we quit a show, we actually left.”
It seems Jay just left from the tonight show slot, to the prime time slot.
UPDATE : The “nurseries” post has been updated with the latests news from Bloomingdales. Link
A spin-off from Jackass, Nitro Circus is based around Travis Pastrana, who is an X-games legend. Created partly by Johnny Knoxville, and into the second season of his show, this is a video of Travis jumping out of a plane with no parachute and just a can of RedBull and shorts.
He says, “I hope this stuff works” after his sip of Redbull and jumps out of the plane.
Random Information of the Day : Remember Rodney King back in 1991 getting assaulted by 2 white cops? “Seventeen years, a criminal trial and a $3m legal settlement later, King has put himself back in harm’s way, agreeing to go toe-to-toe with a notoriously aggressive cop through the colourful medium of celebrity boxing.”
I was never really into watching the Oscars or MTV music awards, but today, all over the news i was reading about Kanye West being booed for a stunt he pulled off. So i dug deeper…
Basically, he ran onto stage while Taylor Swift was accepting her speech for best female video. He stole the microphone from her (seen above), and went on to tell the whole world how Beyonce should have won for “the best video in the world, All the Single Ladies”. Fairly enough, Beyonce was kind enough when she won an award, to invite Taylor back on stage to continue her acceptance speech.
He later apologized to Taylor and her mom via his blog, Classy guy this Kanye.
Kanye’s little rant stole the show from a tribute to Michael Jackson performed by sister Janet and Madonna, a comeback win for Britney Spears, and a first win for Lady Gaga in her bloody costume. Good job Kanye, you’re officially an idiot.
UPDATE : The picture below is of Kanye West and a very classy looking Amber Rose before the awards. It seems he was having a little “sippy sippy” before the MTV awards.
UPDATE 2 : Obama gets in on the act and calls Kanye a Jackass.
First it was Beckham. He loved California.
“She’s very charming, very bright, very amusing. She livens the set up.”
Thats what Woody Allen said about Scarlett Johansson and more. It seems he enjoys casting her in his movies over and over again. And visually molesting her, over and over again.
There seems to be a lot of confusion around blu-rays region/zoning dilemma coming from the DVD. I noticed that after the recent PS3 post.
So this is a quick guide,here it goes:
DVD’s had 6 zones as shown in the graph below:
But Blu-rays have 3 regions:
But blu-ray has an unspoken secret, most movies are region free, so it doesn’t matter what region your player is. You can check the Blu-ray titles here
As for the PS3, all PS3 games are playable on all region consoles, there is no region lock for games. But the restrictions are on DVDs and some blu-ray movies, so you wont be able to play your PS2 games (not an issue with the newer models)/DVD movies that you purchased from amazon if you have a PAL PS3 and vice-versa.
He has got it all.. money, fame and stunning good looks.
Will Ferrell has been nominated for 17 Academy Awards in his career and has taken home 11 of those Oscars. He has been in some of Hollywood’s classic movies such as Talladega Nights, Step-Brothers, Anchorman, Semi-Pro, Blades of Glory, and everyone’s favorite Old School. His career kicked off in Saturday Night Live and has also acted in many TV shows such as Eastbound & Down.
This is an old video which has been talked about on many blogs such as Frankom recently, and others before that. But i doubt when watched again you will not smile at least. From the English accent, to the haircuts, to the outfits, to the Arabic music and rhythm, to the “aywaa” shouts in the background. Its basically an Arabic music video, with Arabic singers dancing and singing an Arabic song, but in English. Confusing. This video has got it all. The video was recorded in Kuwait in 1978, and the Bendaly family are of Lebanese origin.
You can check out their official website with downloads to all their songs here.
After the Cream of the Fight post a while back and the earlier post of Mr Kitco, i remembered a conversation i had with my brother about how for a 60 year old sylvester stallone was in the shape of his life. He pointed out to me though that in the last Rambo he never took his shirt off, and in Rocky during the boxing scene he did take his shirt off but pulled his trunks way up. Maybe he was hiding a beer belly and just worked on the other more obvious parts of his body? Wrong! Continue Reading
Has anyone noticed how badass the lyrics of eye of the tiger are? Obviously no one in this day and age can pull it off without either laughing or smirking. But when this song came out in Rocky and was unleashed to the world it became the anthem for every comeback. Whether it be Michael Jordan in sports or George Bush, Jr. in the White House.
