Spotlight: Water For Elephants (Robert Pattinson, Reese Witherspoon, Christoper Walts)


Hello everyone, I have a new review up as I went to the movies yesterday. The movie I saw was Water For Elephants, which is a drama and is based off of the novel of the same name. Let’s get into the review!


This movie is based on a novel of the same name, Water For Elephants, which was written by Sara Gruen. This movie was directed by Francis Lawrence and distributed by Fox 2000 Pictures. Lawrence has only directed three movies but other than this film, he has directed the amazing I Am Legend and Constantine. Robert Pattinson plays the main male role, Jacob Jankowski and he is not that bad in this movie. I know many hate him because of Twilight, but other than that annoying series he is a good actor. Reese Witherspoon (Walk The Line, Legally Blonde) plays the main female, Marlena Rosenbluth. Playing a very cruel part, as he is known for, Christoph Walts (Inglourious Basterds) plays the part of August Rosenbluth. Hal Holbrook is also an actor in the movie as he plays the older Jacob Jankowski.


The movie starts off with Jacob Jankowski going through his schooling to become a veterinarian but finds out his parents have died and he is forced out of his home. To try and get somewhere in his life, he leaves town and jumps on a train. This train is a train of fate as he ends up jumping onto a moving circus act. He joins the circus company as a veterinarian and grows a love interest in Marlena Rosenbluth, although she is married to August Rosenbluth. The circus continues and the main attraction loses a horse due to illness. August eventually buys an elephant to replace the main act and things go downhill from there as Jacob sees the animal cruelty he gives out. August eventually learns about Jacob and Marlena’s relationship and becomes angry about it and that’s all I’m going to tell you.

Water For Elephants is a very well written drama. Although it is based off of a novel, it is a good film. The actors played there parts really well and I was really into this movie. The only parts I did not like was Christoph Walt’s scenes of animal brutality, as he makes these parts feel so real. My jaw even dropped that’s how good this movie was at making thing feel real. Robert Pattinson is good at acting, excluding Twilight, and I hope he continues to better himself as an actor. If I had the time to read more, I would read this novel as well. For those of you who are undecided on if they want to see this movie or not, I would go see this movie as it is an amazing movie. I give this movie a 4.5 out of 5.

How Gamers Can Save Money During Tax Season, Audience Claps And Cheers As Teen Stabs Himself To Death On Stage, Marijuana By State, Same Sex Marriage Polls Since 1988, Rage Quit: Crysis 2, Weird Al Yankovic: Perform This Way, Get In The Slow Lane!, Horny Reporter Prank

Hello everyone, today is Thursday and this weekend is Easter weekend. A holiday for consumers to go out and buy chocolate that looks like bunnies! Here is some news although it is outdated by a few days!

How Gamers Can Save Money During Tax Season
http://www.gamepro.com/article/features/218892/how-gamers-can-save-money-this-tax-season/

There has been awesome news for gamers who would like to earn some tax money from their entertainment. I know that the article is old and tax season is ending but, this is amazing to read and you will enjoy it! Gaming is a hobby to most, but many are professional gamers. This may not all be true but it is worth a try. As GamePro.com starts off their tax saving, you must decide if you are a gaming professional, collector, or a gaming enthusiast. The first two is what is the easiest to get money back from. Being a professional doesn’t exactly mean you are a video game designer or publisher but it means that in some way you earn money from gaming. People at GamePro are professionals because they write articles about gaming. Anyone who earns money from their blogs from advertisements fit under this category. Professional gamer can also be defined as someone who teaches people how to play games. The fact of the matter is that if you take gaming seriously, and are a professional, you can claim your winning money or however you make money from gaming as business income. This means that you can deduct all of the purchased games as business expenses depending on which game you are a professional in. It could be any game, as you may need all the newest games to keep you in the times of video games because you need them to better your gaming experience. This can be viewed as research, as you are learning more about the video game industry. To even better you tax deduction, if you have a “gaming area” that you dedicate to your gaming, you can most likely deduct some of the rent or mortgage as a business expense under Home Office deduction spot of the tax return. This is said not to be illegal or immoral because it is money that you are entitled to since the government wants to keep small businesses successful.

Audience Claps And Cheers As Teen Stabs Himself To Death On Stage
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1377847/Kipp-Rusty-Walker-stabs-death-stage-open-mic-event.html

Kipp Rusty Walker, who was nineteen years old, took the stage at an open mic night and performed a song called Sorry For All The Mess. This song name is very ironic as after the teenager stabbed himself repeatedly after the song as the audience clapped and cheered because they mistook this as performance art. He collapsed in a pool of his blood and the audience screamed and rushed to help him, but it was too late as he died from his self-inflicted wounds. This suicide has left the Bend, Oregon community stunned and they are still wondering why he ended his life in such the matter he has. Mental health authorities are being questions as it has been said that Walker had told his friends of the plan to commit suicide and that had also threatened to do so before. He was taken in for treatment and was released. The open mic was at Strictly Organic Coffee Company and the audience was about fifteen people in attendance. He went on stage to perform his piece on the keyboard and then killed himself thereafter. He was rushed to the hospital but he died soon after/ The co-owner of Strictly Organic, Rhonda Ealy, told the news station on television, KTVZ, on the reaction among the audience and said this: “It was really unclear at first what was even happening. You know it is an open mic and it's a performance, people at first thought it was some sort of theatre. Most people never have to see anything like that in their entire lives, and never have before, so it is a life-changing experience.” On of Walker’s friends actually claimed he was planning to kill himself in a public place for a long time. The friend states: “It was almost like he wanted to prove a point, like there's no point in being scared of death because it's going to happen to us anyway.” He also added that the teenager told him that he wanted to kill himself on the twentieth of March. The friend told Walker’s parents who took him to St. Charles Medical Centre’s psychiatric unit in the town. Walker was described as a transient and was released a few days later. His friend also said that there was nothing he could do to help him and stated: “'I actually told him, I was like, "Dude, this is going to mess a lot of people up."” That is a split opinion in the community in bend as some people are sympathetic over Walker’s suicide but others are outraged over the incident. On the website of The Oregonian newspaper, a reader by the name Quashi wrote the following: “As the aunt of a talented young artist who also took his life at the age of 19, I am so saddened that he was not able to reach out to his friends and family for help. We will never know the level of pain he suffered from so deeply that he chose to take his own life. Nor will he ever know the pain felt by those he left behind. This lasts forever.” Also another reader by the name of Judahlevi had this to say: “‘It is always a tragic act for someone to take their own life since all life is precious. Nonetheless, he did not have the right to do this in front of an audience. The horrific memories of someone stabbing himself to death on stage in front of them is not something for anyone to have to be subjected to, or have to live with. It is psychologically damaging for everyone in the audience, whether they admit it or not. I feel more sympathy for the audience than the "performer".” A third commenter said he was a doctor and added that this act of public suicide could be a way to “demonstrate to others who are ‘normal’ that there are others suffering to the point of suicide. It’s kind of an ‘in your face you lucky b****** kind of approach’, be it jumping from a bridge/tower or shooting/stabbing yourself in public.” A Police Lieutenant from the Bend area, Chris Carney, said that Walker’s family live in Alaska and that they have been notified. He also added that this incident is unlike anything he has ever seen and stated the following: “You know, 19 years with the Police Department, I can't think of any event similar to this where somebody's done something in such a public forum and not said anything in the process. So at this point, we still don't know the reason why he chose to do this, why he chose this location or anything and we probably never will would be my guess.” A Saint Charles Health System spokesperson has said that officials would be working with Police Department of Bend and the Deschutes County Public Health Department, to ‘discuss resources that are available in the community for those struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts.’



That's it for today. To conclude this daily blog, I have to informative pictures for you. One displaying the laws of marijuana by state and the other the acceptance of same sex marriages over the years since 1988. For videos, we have the latest Rage Quit as Rooster Teeth's Michael plays Crysis 2. Next is Weird Al Yankovic's parody of Born This Way from Lady Gaga called "Perform This Way."
It is worth noting that Weird Al at first did not have permission to put the parody on his upcoming album but Lady Gaga has since changed her mind and allowed it. Last is two funny videos, as police sirens behind a slow moving highway driver and prods her into the slow lane and the second video is a horny reporter prank.

History Of Mortal Kombat, Masterbation Statistics, Bill Murray Facts, Epic Meal Time: Maximum Mac & Cheese, The Game Station: Portal Kombat, New Monopoly Movie Trailer, Disturbing New Footage Of Japan Tsunami, Disturbing Baby Cake Slicing, Spanish Dad Uses Reverse Psychology On Son, Russian Parks Awesome In Slippery Conditions, Idiot Fails At Bending Guitar Neck

Hello everyone, this is going to be a lazy blog. I am not feeling all that great, but there should be some news tomorrow. Here is a ton of stuff to keep you happy for the night. I'll give you the run down of each. We have three informative pictures of the history of Mortal Kombat, masterbation statistics, and facts on Bill Murray. The first video I have for you is the newest Epic Meal Time video called "Maximum Mac and Cheese," in which they build many entrees of various Macaroni and Cheese dishes and have beautiful bitches eat it all up. Next we have the newest video from The Game Station entitled "Portal Kombat," I'll let you watch it and see the hilarity of the Portal Gun in Mortal Kombat. Third we have a trailer for what may be the new Monopoly movie coming out. Not sure what to think of it because it looks super cheesy at some points, but if it ever comes out I will be sure to review it. This next video is something that may disturb you, as it is new footage released of the tsunami that hit Japan. This video was taken atop a hill by a school, as the waves take over a residential area. Near the end of the video, you see people scrambling to get to safety and the camera cuts away from them. This leads me to think that they were killed by debris, but I will leave the decision up to you. I feel bad for all the families who were lost. Next up is another disturbing video, as people are giving out slices of their cake. Yeah, sure this doesn't sound disturbing, but its the design of the cake. The cake is made to look like a baby and I must say this video actually made me cringe. After that creepy video, I have for you something that will make you laugh again. It is a video of a Spanish father and son arguing on whether or not they are walking or taking the vehicle. What's funny about this is that the father plays the psychological answer game on the child and then the child just gives up on trying to take the vehicle. I want to note, because it will make Google searches come here, is that those last two videos were on the last episode of =3 from Ray William Johnson. Now, I hate the guy but I only watch his videos because he does usually have clips no one has shown before. Second last video is of a Russian doing a very skillful park job on a road that is slippery due to weather conditions. I cannot believe he pulled off what he did. The last video is of an idiot who doesn't know how to properly bend the neck of a guitar and it folds in on him.

Apologies: TSL Round 16 Day 4 (Goody vs NaNiwa, MonDragon vs CrunCher), Coachella 2011 (Videos from Mumford And Sons, Death From Above 1979, Arcade Fire, Duran Duran, The Strokes, Kanye West)

Hello everyone, yes I know I have not blogged in a few days and I apologize and I have reason for my absence. This weekend was a busy one for me as I had to watch three different things all weekend. First off Dodger, PressHeartToContinue on YouTube, did a twenty-four hour livestream so I had to watch some of that. I also watched a lot of Coachella 2011 as it was broadcasted live on YouTube. I only watched some of the bands and that is because I would get tired because I'm in Eastern Standard Time and the event was being hosted in California. I have for you below a little recap of some of the bands I watched, or tried to stay up for. I missed Arcade Fire, The Strokes, and Kanye West. I feel bad for it and down below is why! I also watched the live stream of the StarCraft tournament TSL's live stream of Round 16 Day 4, I believe. If I got that wrong I am sorry, but I usually only watch it if HuskyStarcraft is casting. If I remember correctly as well it had ESC.Goody (Terran) versus dignitas.NaNiwa (Protoss), in which NaNiwa won 3-1. As well as that amazing win it also had col.CrunCher (Zerg) versus MYM.Mondragon (Protoss), in which CrunCher beat Mondragon in the same manner, 3-1. After the Coachella videos will be their matches with each other in order. I may continue to give updates on the TSL tournament as they are given out, but I will have them posted whenever TeamLiquid updates their YouTube page. This is it for today, I hope you forgive me. I should be back on track soon enough.

Note: Some videos may not work depending on which country you live in, but since this blog is viewed internationally I will not remove them.

Nintendo To Reveal New Console At This Years E3, Man Catches On Fire In An Adult Story, Eight Games That Set Graphical Benchmarks, Funny Craigslist Apartments, Father Leaves Daughter A Funny Letter, Casa De Mi Padre Trailer (Will Farrell), Rebecca Black Talks About Friday, Sariah Gallego Joins the Dark Side (Darth Sariah)

Hello everyone, today is Friday. I hope everyone has a good weekend! Here is today's news!

Nintendo To Reveal New Console At This Years E3

It is being reported that Nintendo is going to reveal their new console at this year’s E3 in June. It is going to be capable of running games at “HD resolutions” and IGN is saying it is going to be significantly increased in power compared to the PlayStation 3 and the X-Box 360. Nintendo is intending to retake the hardcore gaming scene and is also being said to be able to give 1080p resolution. This new console is set to launch late into 2012 and it will release some sort of announcement later this month. It will be backwards compatible with the Nintendo’s Wii console and will also come with a new controller. This controller is also said to have a built-in screen with touch capability. This seems like a big step for Nintendo and I believe when this comes out they may either take the lead of console gaming or at least be tough competition.

Man Catches On Fire In An Adult Story

A man in San Francisco, California has been hospitatlized with injuries that may threaten his life as he was caught on fire in an adult bookstore. Lieutenant Troy Dangerfield said yesterday, that the man was seen on fire and running out of the Golden Gate Adult Superstore. This happened Wednesday at the South of Market neighbourhood. Dangerfield said that many passerby’s tried to help the man as he ran past them but the fire was put out by firefighters who happened to be close by. The man’s name has not been released and he was taken to St. Francis Memorial Hospital for severe burns. It is not said how the man had caught ablaze and the incident is still under investigation.

Eight Games That Set Graphical Benchmarks
http://gamingbolt.com/eight-games-that-set-new-graphical-benchmarks

GamingBolt.com has put out an article about eight games in which they believe set benchmarks for video game graphics. I’ll run through the list as well as give my opinion on them.

First game is Metal Gear Solid 2 (for its cinematics) which was released in 2001. At the time, this was the first game on the Playstation 2 that looked next gen and also had gamers excited about the quality. It was mostly recognized for its amazing cinematics and one of the few games that had an impact on cinematic storytelling. This game has shaped into what is now what of the best cinematical games of all time in my opinion, Metal Gear Solid 4.


 Monster Maze 3D for the PC was the first 3D game ever developed and distributed. The game was released in 1981 and is credited for the beginning of 3D gaming as it made way for games like Doom, Wolfenstein, Duke Nukem and many others. It is not to be said that those games have not been influential or important in game history, but it is important to note that Monster Maze 3D was in fact the first game to implement three dimensional visuals.

Half Life 2 is notable for many things from its beautiful environment, awesome story, and the crowbar in which Gordon Freeman uses. One thing that is also important and is a bench mark in gaming history is the physics system that Valve implemented. This was one of the first, and probably the best, games that had realistic physics. Below is a video showing off its physics engine.


The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time was the first Zelda to be created with 3D graphics as opposed to the 2D in the older games in the series. The two Zelda games that were released on the Nintendo 64, Ocarina Of Time and Majora’s Mask are probably the most played in the series and likely the most popular. It is one of the first games that included a very far draw distance, which were shown realistically as the gaming area was actually that large in geographical terms.


Crysis for the is known, by GamingBolt.com, as one of the first to make PCs cry. The graphics in this game were so realistic that it almost looked like it was actually real. The game is an original shooter, developed by the people from Crytek. Far Cry was their first game but Crysis took those graphics to a new level. I think you will all get a better idea of this game’s graphics by the video below, as no words will do what the actually game play can show.


Uncharted 2 is one of the first console games to have such an incredible engine and the graphics it was developed with. This game put console gaming on an even playing field as PC gaming was on graphically. This game showed what the PlayStation 3 is capable of and I know many of you may say Metal Gear Solid 3 is what put the Playstation 3 to it’s limits, but Uncharted 2 is what put game play at it’s best.


This next game is a subject we have already covered, but Red Dead Redemption is one of those games that is known for its graphics. This game was amazing in terms of storyline and game play, but it is also known for its beautiful graphics. Much like Zelda’s Nintendo 64 games, Red Dead Redemption has a very impressive draw distance. This game’s map and area is very large and is much more of a sand box style game than the Zelda’s were. I know you may want to add Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto games to this argument, but Red Dead Redemption was way more beautiful and did have a larger draw distance. The Grand Theft Auto series lacked in actual draw distance as it was more of a city based game, whereas Red Dead Redemption is more of a roaming game.


Last on this benchmark game list is Heavy Rain for its work with motion capture. This game put motion capture into gaming better than any other game out there from its time. It was known for its realistic facial expressions, as well as animations. The characters actually looked like people acting out the part and this was new to the gaming world. Below is a video of the game play.



Before I conclude this article I would like to say that a game that may put a benchmark on graphics is L.A. Noire. It will make Heavy Rain’s motion capture a joke. I would like to end this article as well as my blogs main part with a trailer for L.A. Noire.

That’s it for tonight’s blog, I hope you enjoyed it. I leave you with a funny picture about apartments on Craigslist, as well as a funny letter a father left his daughter. Also I have three videos for you tonight. First up is a trailer for Casa De Mi Padre, which means House Of My Father in Spanish. What makes this movie so special is that Will Farrell is in this movie and his character only speaks Spanish, which will be interesting to see him play a Spanish man. The second video is Rebecca Black explaining her song “Friday.” I don’t know if this video is dubbed over or not but she tries to make this song sound like it means a lot more than it actually seems. Last is a funny video that got famous on YouTube of a girl who joins the Dark Side, at a Star Wars event. She was supposed to slay Darth Vader with “Mace Windu” by here side, but instead kneels to her new master. There is even a FaceBook page called Darth Sariah, dedicated to her.

Public Urinals Introduced In Australia, Mother Drives Minivan Into River With Kids In Passenger Seats, Funny Women’s Rights Protestor Sign, 16 Facts About Sleeping, The Game Station: Nintendo 3DS Television Commercial Parody, Rooster Teeth: Rage Quit: Ikaruga


Hello everyone, today is Thursday. That means tomorrow is the end of the work/school week and that means party time! I was thinking of going to see if there were any new movies playing, so I could review them for you. The only new movie playing is Rio, along with Hop. I have yet to see either of these films. Maybe I will go to them, so I can review them for you. Anyway, now for today’s news!

Public Urinals Introduced In Australia


Sydney, Australia has introduced one of the weirdest ways for someone to pee while in public. In order to fix the problem of intoxicated or lose bladdered Australians, they introduced a urinal for those people to pee in, as seen above. A former resident of Cleveland, Ohio by the name of Michael Stern, is now residing in Sydney and said this to AOL News on the topic: “I wouldn’t use one of these…It doesn’t look like you can wash your hands.” It doesn’t seem like there is anyway to wash your hands afterwards and it does look like it will not be sanitary for long. These open-aired urinals are for men only, so women still have to squat with their pants down in the middle of the public, as the pictures on the FunnyCrave.com article show.

Mother Drives Minivan Into River With Kids In Passenger Seats

On Tuesday, Lashandra Armstrong drove into a river with her children as passengers. Her children’s names are Lashaun (10), Landon (5), Lance (2), and Lainaina(11 months). It is sad to report only Lashaun made it out of this horrifying story alone. It was a long hour search and rescue, as the police and fire department had their dive team look underwater for the minivan, while a helicopter looked on from above. The car was found eight feet below of water and about twenty-five feet from the boat ramp. Lashaun apparently went to the fire department at around 7:50. Police Chief of the Newburgh, New York Department, Michael Ferrara stated the following: "The boy reported that his mother had driven the car into the river." He also says that it had appeared that the children were alive when it happened and that the mother “intentionally drove the car into the river.” Lashaun was the only child out of the four who had a different father. He escaped the drowning vehicle by opening the window and was picked up by someone who had seen him and drove him to the fire department. It is being said that if Laushan had not made his way out of this situation that the whole incident may have been a missing persons case for a long while. After Laushan made it to the fire station, one of the mother’s relatives had called the police about a domestic dispute at the mother’s house. Police Chief Ferrara said, "There was tussling in the background but also a history of domestic problems in the past." The father of the children did not live at home with them and authorities are trying to bring him in for questioning. The mayor of Newburgh, Nicolas Valentine, is heartbroken by the deaths but said residents of the town would come together to heal. He also said this statement: "We are talking about a tragedy in this city that is probably second to none. We are a tough city. We are a compassionate city. We are all one and if you need our help and assistance, we are here for that."


That’s it for today and in conclusion, I bring you more entertainment than there was yesterday! First we have a funny picture of a female protestor for gay and lesbian rights. Next we have an informative picture of sixteen facts you may not have known about sleeping. For videos we have a funny commercial parody for the Nintendo 3DS by The Game Station and the latest video of the series Rage Quit by Rooster Teeth. This Rage Quit video is a bit different as Geoff explains why Michael is having such a hard time at the beginning and also makes fun of him through video editing.

Sex Ed Prank By An Eighth-Grader, Mythbuster Jamie Hyneman Is Developing Vehicle Armour For Military, Earthquake Intensities And Death Yearly Statistics, Opium In Afghanistan, The Rise Of Consumer Confidence, FailBlog: Too Old For Playgrounds


Hello everyone it is midweek as today is Wednesday. I don’t have much news for tonight but its is a daily blog. So here it is!

Sex Ed Prank By An Eighth-Grader


A Reddit user by the name of HelloTerence, was a thirteen year old who pranked his school and created panic amongst the teachers. He was able to pull off a prank that was very successful in scaring parents. He was able to fake an announcement that looks like an official document. This letter said students learning sex ed would be paired and given condoms and taken to private rooms, under adult supervision. Parents were allowed to opt out by filling out the bottom of the form and returning them. Although, as it is said in the letter, they only had one day to return the signed letter. His mother was even in on this prank as she photocopied three-hundred copies of the letter for her son to give out. Above is the letter that was given to parents.

Mythbuster Jamie Hyneman Is Developing Vehicle Armour For Military

You all know him as the more quiet and serious member of the Mythbusters show on the Discovery Channel, but there is something you may not know. Jamie Hyneman is now using his intelligence to help the United States military to produce new lightweight vehicle armour. He had been coordinating with the Naval Research Office to aid in the development to the armour. This will be the armour used in the future in Iraq and Afghanistan. Hyneman has been tasked with coming up with armour that will be very light, so it does not weigh down vehicles but at the same time can defend again different sorts of damage. This is also not the first time that the Mythbuster has worked with the military as he once designed a virtual injured soldier for medics to use as a training dummy. It was able to spurt blood and moan in pain if the medical attention was attended to incorrectly. Jamie Hyneman may just be the future of military training and production.


That is all for new for today and down below I have for you many statistics and a FailBlog video. First is two pictures on the topic of earthquakes about intensities and deaths, respectively. Next is the amount of opium in Afghanistan and last is the rise of consumer confidence.

Ten Creepy Insect And Spider Battles, Five Horniest Presidents Of The United States, Tractor Without A Driver Demolishes Cars In Walmart Parking Lot, Aperture Investment Opportunity: Boots, Epic Meal Time: Puzzle of the Lambs


Good evening everyone, another day another post. I also hope you like my review of the remake of Arthur and hope you go see it! Now for your news!

Ten Creepy Insect And Spider Battles

Ranker.com has come posted an article of ten battles between different insects and spiders. I thought I’d share a few of these creepy-crawly videos. It’s hard to believe there are bugs and spiders this big in the world. The second video is a Tarantula Hawk not a hornet.





Five Horniest Presidents Of The United States
http://blogs.houstonpress.com/hairballs/2011/04/the_five_horniest_presidents_a.php

As a way to promote the mini-series on the Kennedy’s, Houston Press has a list of what they think is the top five horniest presidents that served terms in the United States. Here are the five presidents and a little information on their horniness. 

The fifth horniest president of the United States, is Warren G. Harding. This president was considered the Reagan of his time. He had sex with many young women in the White House and of many places to have these fun times, he once used the closet. He called his wife, “The Duchess” and she knew exactly what he was doing. She got so mad at him that people believed his sudden death was because she poisoned him.

Coming in forth is former president Grover Cleveland, who is known for winning the election although his child was out of wedlock. The mother wasn’t sure if the father of the child was Cleveland or one of his friends. He took the blame and began paying child support. When he entered his term in the White House, he was a bachelor. While he was president he dated a girl who was in college. They married when she turned twenty-one and they had five children together.

The third-place horniest president belongs to Bill Clinton. He got elected into state office at a young age and all of the women couldn’t resist him. Everyone thought he would be able to resist the urge to splurge, but he couldn’t. He ended up sexing up a girl, who had a friend who told her to keep the evidence.

Lyndon Baines comes in at second and is a man with a huge ego. He had an affair that lasted a long time but did not end in marriage. Although he did go through his secretaries, having sex with many of them. His girlfriend knew and she has also be quoted saying “women make up fifty percent of the population, and Lyndon had such a big heart he couldn’t ignore them.”

Of course, coincidentally as the mini-series was based on him, John F. Kennedy takes the crown of horniest president. He has said that he could not go three days without sex or he’d get headaches. He also said that he’d keep a woman until he had in all three orifices. Marilyn Monroe had said he would lay on his back and let the women do the work.

Tractor Without A Driver Demolishes Cars In Walmart Parking Lot

A tractor ploughed through a Walmart parking lot in Richmond Hill, Ontario the other day. Many people looked on as the tractor, which had no driver, damaged many cars including a Suzuki SX4 and a Toyota Corolla. Its rampage ended when the tractor hit a lamp post and someone managed to jump into it and turn it off. Below is a video of the incident.

Spotlight: Arthur Review (Russell Brand, Helen Mirren, Jennifer Garner, Greta Gerwig, Luis Guzmán)


On the weekend I went to go see the remake of the 1981 film Arthur. I think this movie was very good, for a romantic comedy. Let’s get into the review!


As I said this was a remake of the original, which was directed by Steve Gordon in 1981. This remake was directed by Jason Winer, written by Peter Baynham, and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. I’ve not seen the original but I must say I enjoyed this movie, the cast was excellent. Russell Brand plays a character that he is familiar with in several other roles. He plays Arthur Bach who is ready to inherit millions of dollars if he can find a wife suitable for his mother’s likings, who is played by Geraldine James. Arthur has a nanny named Hobson, played by Helen Mirren, who keeps him from getting into too much trouble. The woman that his mother sees him marrying is named Susan Johnson and she is played by Jennifer Garner. Arthur does not love this woman and would rather marry a woman named Naomi, played by Greta Gerwig. The story is basically based on Arthur loving Greta and then Hobson helps Arthur through his struggles financially and romantically.


 I really liked this movie, although it is a romantic comedy. I do not mind this genre of film as long as the cast is one I can get behind. The only thing that bothered me about this movie was Russell Brand’s voice. I do not know if it was just me or not knowing his normal tone, but I found his voice to be a little higher than I remembered it in Get Him To The Greek. Other then that this movie is very well made and I think it did well as a remake. Although I have not seen the original this movie makes me believe that what they did with the original was a success. I recommend going to see this, if you like romantic comedies. If you are a man with a female companion who wants to go see this movie, I would say that if you like Russell Brand then you should definitely go. I give this film a 4.5/5.

Hello everyone, today is Monday and it is the start to a new week. I didn’t get to go see Hop last night but I do promise a review on Arthur tomorrow night. Here is today’s news!

Norwegian Boy Saves Sister And Self From Moose Attack Using World Of Warcraft Skills

A twelve year old Norwegian, by the named of Hans Jorgen Olsen, saved his sister and his self from a moose attack because of skills that he picked up from playing World of Warcraft. When they trespassed into the territory of the moose it attacked them. Hans learned that he should first “taunt” the animal, so that it left his sister alone. Then he used the skill “feign death” to make the moose lose interest in him. This made the moose wander into the forest and the children ran home. This is an awesome article as it shows that not everything is lost when playing gaming. Sometimes even playing games is educational, parents should learn this.

DICE Believes They Already Made A Game Better Than Call Of Duty

The producer, Patrick Bach, over at DICE is known for his first-person shooter franchise Battlefield. It is such a successful game that he doesn’t think that much of Call Of Duty. He believes that Bad Company 2 did so well last year that it may be better than the latest Call of Duty games. Gamerzines.com did an interview with Patrick and asked why he thinks that the new Battlefield will be more successful than the Call Of Duty game. Patrick said: “Asking the community and the reviewers which was the better game (between Bad Company 2 and Black Ops), we had the higher score. So we've already built a better game in theory, but I think it's just based on the trust everyone has in DICE and in us building Battlefield games in general." He does not exactly think that the game will sell more than Call Of Duty, but he does think that it will be a better quality game. I actually agree with him. Call Of Duty lacks a lot of the mechanics that Battlefield contains. Mainly two different key areas, which are various vehicles and destructible environments.

Seven Weird Food Fragrances

MTV.com’s clutch has an article out showcasing the seven weirdest fragrances that are food related. Here are the pictures, and names in order, of those fragrances:

1. Stilton’s Stinky Bleu Cheese
2. Burger King’s “Flame”
3. Demeter’s Sushi-Scented Cologne
4. Axe “Dark Temptation” Chocolate Spray
5. Kaori Chocolate Perfume Paints
6. Demeter’s Cotton Candy Spray
7. Play-Doh Cologne










That’s it for today, here is a picture of how people on Earth have been in space for the last fifty years. For videos, I am going to reverse how I explain them. At the bottom is a video from FreddieW which I found amusing and well done called “Claymores.” Above that is a little trailer for what believe is a movie called Fight For Your Right: Revisited which is a movie which is based off the Beastie Boys. Some of the cast is as follows Elijah Wood, Danny McBride, Seth Rogan, Orlando Bloom, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Jack Black.
