Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
I was getting my morning coffee today at my local neighborhood spot when a blind man walked in. The two baristas and I watched as he used his cane to navigate around. He had wandered into the shop kind of accidentally on purpose. Most likely just to get a whiff of the intoxicating smell of coffee and pastries. But then he couldn’t find his way out, even with his cane. One of the girls came out from behind the counter, took his arm, and escorted him out of the shop. The other looked at me really earnestly and said, “Ya know, we don’t appreciate what we have. We always want more and more. We’re never grateful enough for what we do have.”
I was slightly taken aback since we make small talk every day, but never really talk on that level. How right she was. As I walked out, sipping my coffee, I was inspired to acknowledge what I was grateful for … as hokey as it may sound. Recently, I’ve been thinking about how important it is to be humble, so this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I’m grateful for many things, but for today, I appreciated that I was on my way to a job that I love. What are you grateful for today? Please share in the comments. Keep reading »
The last time Joaquin Phoenix appeared on David Letterman‘s show, he stunned the talk show host with his shaggy appearance and caustic behavior. It’s since been revealed that Phoenix came on the show “in character” for the movie “I’m Still Here,” his and Casey Affleck’s scripted pseudo-documentary about celebrity. Last night, he went back to Letterman’s stage to explain himself, confirm that Dave was not in on the, for lack of a better word, “hoax,” and to apologize and thank Letterman for giving him a proper “beatdown.” Clip above!

Beyonce and Jay-Z aren’t the only ones who’ve figured out that featuring your other half in a music video can do wonders for your career. Not all artists have a musically gifted SO to back them up in their videos, but regardless, having your real-life man or woman appear in a music video can add some extra buzz and make finding the on-screen chemistry a lot easier. Carrie Underwood is the most recent singer to tap a love interest for a cameo in a music video. The country singer’s new hubby, Mike Fisher, makes an appearance in the “Mama’s Song” video, along with—you guessed it—Carrie’s mother. The tune is a thank you to Mama Underwood from Carrie for raising her right and getting her ready to accept love. Mike, much like his real-life role, plays that man Carrie gives her heart to.
