There was a time, in our not so distant cynical past, when we hated Celine Dion and her cheesy Titanic-esque love songs. Now that we are mature and enjoy music that’s soothing (not to mention a high octave range), we love her! And now, thanks to this awesome YouTube video, we think she seems like a fun, awesome, totally insane human being, too. [YouTube: Celine Dion Is Amazing] Keep reading »
Have you ever had one of those experiences where you found out about something exciting and then discovered that it no longer exists all in the same day? I am having one of those moments. Nerve Scanner says that Wil Weaton, who played Ensign Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation has been laid off from his blogger position on alt.porn site SuicideGirls.com. A) WTF? How did I not know that Wil Wheaton blogged for such an awesome sex site? B) How does a raging nerd like Wheaton get a gig like that? and C) Why did he get cut loose?
Before I continue, it’s probably important that I confess that I grew up a bit of a Trekkie and while I have outgrown the geeky obsession, I still have a soft spot for ol’ Wil, who was the first recipient of a love/fan letter from yours truly. It’s embarrassing, but we all have our skeletons.
Anyway, it seems that Wheaton, who wrote a column called “Geek In Review”, got the ax along with a bunch of other bloggers and writers due to budget cuts. Sigh. Guess I’m going to have to relive my adolescent space sex fantasies through the archives. [Nerve.com] Keep reading »
Depending on which poll you’re reading, the Senator from Illinois may be in the lead in today’s Iowa Caucus. We’re not going to indicate where we stand politically in the current primary race, however, we will indicate where our lady parts stand — firmly in Obama’s pants…err, camp. The inspired speaker and youngest Presidential candidate is sex on a freaking stick. [CNN] Keep reading »
Suffice it to say, I’m not much for many traditions, including the one that says your intended fiance should ask your dad for permission to marry you (I just got engaged and while I thought it was sweet my bf…err, fiance…talked to my parents about his intentions after the fact, I am glad the only person’s permission he sought was mine). Subhash Chander, 57, of Oak Forest, Illinois might disagree with me on that. He allegedly set fire to the apartment building where his pregnant daughter, her husband, and their young child lived (killing all three) because the husband (who he didn’t approve of because he came from a different caste) didn’t get his permission to marry his daughter before they wed. If it turns out that he’s guilty, I am going to scream in outrage. What do you all make of this story? We’re anxious to hear your thoughts in the comments. [CNN via Feministing] Keep reading »
