I WAS SHOCKED

I was browsing news on CNN.com when I came upon this video and story, "Lap Dancing Teachers." Aparrently a male teacher gave a lap dance to a female teacher at a school pep rally at a school in Canada.

Youtube has a video of it filmed by a student:


CNN has the video and also student reactions HERE. Thoughts?

JOHN MAYER AND HIS MOUTH...

I really do love John Mayer's music. I have all his CDs and would jump at the chance to see him in concert, if I could afford it.

The only thing that bugs me about him is the way he shoots off his mouth, saying completely random and ridiculous things for attention. In his most recent interview, he admitted he needs to keep his elaborate farces to himself, but will he?

In memory of his reckless speaking, The Huffington Post voted for the "9 Douchiest Things John Mayer Has Ever Said."

To see the photos and quotes, go HERE.

DAKOTA FANNING GROWS UP

Dakota Fanning, child star from films such as "I Am Sam," "War of the Worlds," and "Twilight New Moon" looks all grown up (and maybe from the '60s) on the upcoming month's cover of V magazine.

I think it's cute and funky, and also surprisingly grown up compared to just a few years ago when she had a bob haircut and puffy pink dresses. Thoughts?

STALKING MADE EASIER




New technology from the Swedish firm The Astonishing Tribe (TAT) called Recognizr could soon help you figure out who they are so that you can get up and greet them by name.
According to an article published Tuesday in Popular Science, Recognizr is a new application that can figure out who someone is--and auto-discover social networking information about them--based solely on a photo.
PopSci, riffing on the growing field of augmented reality, called the technology "augmented identity."
"Mashing up face recognition technology, computer vision, cloud computing and augmented reality with the complex digital lives many of us lead on the Internet," PopSci wrote, "TAT has created an app that allows you to gather information on a person and their social networking life simply by pointing your camera phone at their face."
Hmmm...very scary!!!

NEW MUSIC: DANIEL MERRIWEATHER

Daniel Merriweather, a VH1 "You Oughta Know" artist, released his new album "Love and War."


 I gave it a listen and was very impressed by his soulful sound. A mix of slow and upbeat tracks, the album is worth a listen. You may remember him from a Mark Ronson produced track from a few years back.

Some of my favorite songs from this album are the collaborations he did. This first video for "Change" features Wale.

I also really like "Water & A Flame" featuring Adele. This video is the song, and the embed restricted actual video is HERE.

"HOT TUB TIME MACHINE"



"Hot Tub Time Machine" opens March 16th. I am not sure how I feel about it... but here you go. 


"Disappointed at the way their lives have turned out, four longtime friends reunite at the ski resort where they used to party and find themselves transported back to the year 1986 by a magical jacuzzi. Adam (John Cusack), Lou (Rob Corddry), Nick (Craig Robinson), and Jacob (Clark Duke) have all seen better days; Adam's and Nick's love lives are in the dumps, Lou is clinging to his hard-partying past, and video-game addict Jacob can't even muster the courage to walk outside. A fun stay at the ski resort where the gang made some of their best memories seems like just the thing to cheer everyone up, but after a night of heavy drinking in the hot tub, the four friends wake up to find they're about to live through the '80s a second time. Determined not to make the same mistakes twice, Adam, Lou, Nick, and Jacob decide to take full advantage of the unique opportunity presented to them, and create the lives they've always wanted.Chevy ChaseCrispin Glover, and Lizzy Caplan co-star" - Jason Buchanan, All Movie Guide

"REMEMBER ME"

Robert Pattinson of the "Twilight" Saga is in a new film with TV's "Lost" star Emilie De Ravin. The film, "Remember Me" opens March 12th.

"In the romantic drama Remember Me, Robert Pattinson plays Tyler, a rebellious young man in New York City who has a strained relationship with his father (Pierce Brosnan) ever since tragedy separated their family. Tyler didn't think anyone could possibly understand what he was going through until the day he met Ally (Emilie de Ravin) through an unusual twist of fate. Love was the last thing on his mind, but as her spirit unexpectedly heals and inspires him, he begins to fall for her. Through their love, he begins to find happiness and meaning in his life. Soon, hidden secrets are revealed, tragedy lingers in the air, as the circumstances that brought them together threaten to tear them apart. Set in the summer of 2001, Remember Me is an unforgettable story about the power of love, the strength of family, and the importance of living passionately and treasuring every day of one's life" - IMDB

 "Shutter Island" premiers this weekend natinwide, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, and Max von Sydow. Directed by famed Martin Scorsese, this thriller is sure to feature his talented eye for cinematography.


Fandango summarizes:

During their inquiry , the two encounter a web of deceit, experience a hurricane and become involved in a deadly inmate riot that leaves them trapped on the island. Ben Kingsley will play Dr. Cawley, the hospital's enigmatic chief physician who must reluctantly play host to the two U.S. marshals"

TIGER APOLOGIZES



Tiger set up a press conference to apologize for his actions. Although I understand he did this for his "fans", his advertisers and those who look up to him however I'm not married to him and he doesn't owe me any apologize. His vows were to his wife and GOD. It was quite hilarious hearing the commentary regarding the situation I believe media took this issue and ran with it due to their assumptions of Tiger's "good boy" image. At the end of the day he is a phenomenal golfer and I'm not condoning his behavior, it is quite ridiculous but the obsession over it is just as ridiculous. HAITI still needs our help!

NEW MUSIC: CHRIS BROWN MIXTAPE - IN MY ZONE

My, my, (did I say) *my*. Lil Chris Brown, Chris Breezy, it's BREEZY BABY. He is indeed grown *blank stare* I didn't care too much for his last official album Graffiti but this mixtape he has released In My Zone *HA* [paused] should have taken the place of Graffiti. Produced by DJ Drama and DJ Sense has some very interesting songs. The music is addictive and very very grown *whew, where is my H2O* . Just looking at the track list made me want to listen to the songs to see what Mr. Brown had in store for us. I'm not say he hit a homerun but indeed some of these songs will end up on my iPod *don't judge me*

UNCOMMON GOODS

I really enjoy browsing online in between tasks or classes, finding silly and functional items.

One of my favorite websites "Uncommon Goods" sells anything from decorative wall decals, to candy making kits, to infant toys. They have a large variety of random, but fun, items for you or as gifts.

The only down side is that some things are overpriced. Don't let that discourage you, though, because there are many affordable items.

"WOLFMAN"


"Wolfman," starring Benicio Del Torro and Anthony Hopkins is a remake of the 1941 classic of the same name.
Given the title, it is fairly obvious as to what you can expect--a man that becomes a wolf. As a more indepth look, IMDB says:

"Lawrence Talbot, a haunted nobleman, is lured back to his family estate after his brother vanishes. Reunited with his estranged father, Talbot sets out to find his brother... and discovers a horrifying destiny for himself. Talbot's childhood ended the night his mother died. After he left the sleepy Victorian hamlet of Blackmoor, he spent decades recovering and trying to forget. But when his brother's fiancée, Gwen Conliffe, tracks him down to help find her missing love, Talbot returns home to join the search. He learns that something with brute strength and insatiable bloodlust has been killing the villagers, and that a suspicious Scotland Yard inspector named Aberline has come to investigate."

There IS such a thing as bad publicity. When will Lindsay Lohan get it? It is bad enough she stumbles around on a daily basis, starves herself, and looks all around a mess, but why this?
