I can see how that makes sense: A deaf 3-year-old from Nebraska is being asked by the school district to change his name because in sign language it resembles “weapons.” Keep it real, gangsta!
John Goodman (the wealthy 48 year old polo club founder, not the legendary actor) has legally adoptedhis long time girlfirend Heather Laruso Hutchins, 42. She is a lucky woman, as Goodman is a class act. On February 12th, 2010 he ran a stop sign in his Bently and smashed into a car killing Scott Patrick Wilson. He failed to call the police or an ambulance while leaving the scene on foot. When the police found and tested him his blood alcohol content was twice the legal limit. Wilson’s family has filed a civil suit against Goodman which goes to trial next month, however a judge has ruled that money in trust for his children is protected from any potential settlement. I’m not saying this is a move to use this ruling to protect his assets, but this is a move to use the ruling to protect his assets. What gets me is this: I would be willing to make the assumption tht after dating for such a long period of time, the couple are having intimate relations. He has now adopted her, so any action he gets is now incest which I have to believe is illegal. None of the articles I have read regarding this have even hit at this angle, so perhaps there is something I am missing, but this is all kinds of wrong.
There is a lawyer somewhere who has a client, and the two of them think that it is a good idea to sue the family of a dead teen whose body was ripped into pieces when he was hit by a train. Why you might ask? Do these people not have any compassion for the grieving family? No. You see, one of his body parts flew on to the platform and hit her, breaking her leg and wrist and injuring her shoulder. So of course she is entitled to a large cash settlement, right? A state appeals court
found that it was reasonably foreseeable’ that the high-speed train would kill the college hopeful and fling his body toward a platform where people were waiting.
Seriously. And if that wasn’t bad enough (continue reading…)
Batcrap crazy octomom Nadya “My vajayjay is a clown car” Suleman is taking time off from celebrity boxing to appear in a movie, and no, the Asylum is in no way attached to this sure to be Oscar worthy endeavor. The film is called Millennium and stars Nadya and Jeff Kongs and is directed by Kristopher Michel. IMDB does not list a writer, but that is in no way surprising – if there was one I doubt he/she would want their name on this. Suleman is no stranger to the camera, as video of her giving birth (continue reading…)
A 46 year old man tracked down and choked a 13 year old boy after he had killed the man in Call of Duty: Black Ops and taunted him about it. After going to the boys house, Mark Bradford choked him with both hands and left him with a scratch. Bradford was arrested, admitted assault and will be sentenced on October 24th. He seems a rather sympathetic character, and I hope he gets off on this one:
“I’d been playing the whole day and he was baiting me and just would not shut up. I just lost it. In a moment of madness I went round to the house. I didn’t know what I was going to do. It wasn’t malice. I just grabbed him. I’ve seen him since and apologised. The injuries weren’t that bad but I do regret it.”
As a homeschooler, show and tell was pretty much just solo peek-a-boo, so I missed out on the cultural experience. I have to wonder if this is normal, though: Child Brings Mom’s Crack Pipe For Show-And-Tell
To err is human, to forgive is divine, and to get so drunk on a flight that you urinate on an 11 year old girl getting yourself kicked off the US ski team is royally stupid. But hey, things happen – especially when you consume five or six beers and two rum and cola cocktails. Robert Vietze, who was previously known as “up and coming skier and possible 2014 olympian” is know to be know as “prisoner 28417″ or maybe “most likely to be sodomized, 2011″. At least he had the common decency not to blame it on Tabasco sauce…
This headline from The New York Daily News says it all:
Everybody was kung fu fighting, the police came fast as lightning. Not to break up a yakuza vs. mafia brawl but to arrest a singer of the Carl Douglas classic. Simon Ledge was singing the song at the Driftwood bar in Sandown, UK when a passing man “of Chinese origin” took offense claiming he was “subjected to racial abuse”. Ledge was arrested on suspicion of causing harassment, alarm or distress. Were this April 1st, this might be funny. Carl Douglas himself has weighed in on the incident:
“I couldn’t believe it. This is not a racist song. It’s a happy, kicking, disco song.”
Now, racism is not a joke like DVD piracy, nor is it a victimless crime like punching someone in the dark, but this is absurd!
There have been many times someone has mentioned Vanilla Ice (the “singer” if you will) and I have though “Gee, he seems to be a real tool… or maybe, some type of pirate”. Well, it is the latter of course. Rob Van Winkle as his mother would call him if she were not horribly ashamed of him, will be starring as Captain Hook in a pantomime of Peter Pan at the Central Theatre in Chatham, Kent. Yes, he is still alive and apparently getting work. Why hire him?
Tony Hill, the theatre’s general manager, said: “Ice is a huge name who I am sure will be a real draw for parents and children alike.”
He added: “(He) has never performed in a pantomime before, but I am sure that he will go down as a hit.”
Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte is the tale of the powerful and passionate love between Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw which eventually destroys them and those around them. Wuthering Heights, the new BBC radio drama is the tale of the powerful and passionate love between Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw which eventually destroys them and those around them – with swear words added. Yes, someone at the BBC said “What a brilliant and time honored novel. The story of their love is timeless. Lets add the word f%&k to it”. This is no Pride and Prejudice and Zombies folks. Playwright Jonothan Holloway added the swears to ”capture the shock” of the books original release. And what better way to spice up classic literature! Nothing says classic prose in quite the way the cuss words do!
Repent, sinners, the end is nigh. Need proof? From the Hollywood Reporter:
In one of the most shocking reality TV ideas yet, E! has ordered a new series that crosses a wedding competition with extreme plastic surgery.
The network is set to announce “Bridalplasty,” where brides-to-be compete in wedding-themed challenges to win extensive surgical procedures.
Each week, a group of women go head-to-head in such challenges as writing wedding vows and planning honeymoons. The winner receives the chance to choose a plastic surgery procedure from her “wish list.” She’s given the procedure immediately, and results are shown at the start of the following week’s episode.
