Dennis Hopper dead at 74

LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENTS: Dennis Hopper took Tinseltown by storm in the 1950s before assembling a quirky and ambitious canon of work that includes some of Hollywood's most celebrated films.
Dennis Hopper, the born-to-be-wild man of Hollywood, a hell-raising iconoclast who rode to fame as the "Easy Rider" and built a legend around his death-defying party lifestyle, died yesterday after a battle with prostate cancer. He was 74.
In his heyday, Hopper's daily intake of stimulants included 30 beers, a half-gallon of rum and 3 grams of coke. He just assumed he would die young like his idol, James Dean."Did I ever expect to reach 70? Hell, I never expected to see 30," Hopper once said. "And when I did hit 30, 70 seemed off-the-charts old to me. It's a miracle I'm still here."
Hopper jumped into the deep end of excess when he was just 18, on the set of "Rebel Without a Cause," where he was introduced to peyote by Dean -- and had a tryst with screen siren Natalie Wood in a parked car.

It would be the start of an over-the-top quarter century of binge drinking, drug abuse and wild orgies.Hopper was the bad-boy sheriff of Hollywood, often carrying a gun and knife when he wasn't running around in the nude like a madman.
"My biggest drive wasn't alcohol or drugs -- it was sex," he said in an interview, looking back on his wild years.During the '70s, the sight of Hopper strolling around the streets of Los Angeles in the buff was all too common -- as were the nightly orgies with dozens of girls -- estimates ran up to 50.He was said to proposition women he passed on the street by telling them: "My name is Dennis Hopper. Do you want to f- - -?"
No one was safe: Urban legend has it that he was bold enough to try the line on a passing group of nuns.Hopper was married five times -- once for just seven days to the Mamas and the Papas singer Michelle Phillips. The morning after the wedding, Hopper reportedly woke up so stoned he didn't recognize his new bride.Even in a boozy haze, Hopper had moments of pure artistic greatness.In 1969, Hopper directed and co-starred in "Easy Rider," a low-budget movie about two motorcycle-riding hippies that became a counterculture landmark and represented a paradigm shift in filmmaking.

"The picture making, with the sounds that accompany, is astonishingly perfect," The Post's movie critic Archer Winsten wrote in 1969 of the film that pioneered the use of rock music in its soundtrack. "Seldom does one see a picture that can combine in such just proportions the physical beauty of this world, its conflicts of old violent prejudice with new modes of living and dressing."The film also featured Peter Fonda and a then largely unknown Jack Nicholson, who gave a star-making performance. Hopper's depiction of a manic photographer in the 1979 Vietnam War epic "Apocalypse Now" was method acting at its best -- Hopper's drugged-out chatter off-camera was worked into the movie's final cut.

He earned an Oscar nomination in 1986 for his role in "Hoosiers," in which he played an alcoholic basketball-team manager. That same year, he received critical acclaim for his chilling performance in David Lynch's "Blue Velvet."

Hopper was committed to a psychiatric ward in 1982, after he was discovered hallucinating and wandering naked in the woods in Mexico. On the flight home to LA, he reportedly tried to jump out of the plane.But in his sunset years, Hopper had cleaned up his act.Boozing and drugs had been replaced with golf, the Atkins diet and trips to Fashion Week with his wife, Victoria Duffy.In his sober second act, Hopper spoke with regret of his wasted years."I was thinking I had no life or any memory really until now," he said in an interview in the '90s. "If you've ever had a period of time where you weren't allowed to work -- maybe because you were doing drugs and alcohol, but you didn't know that was their reason -- then the fear [of not being able to work] is always with you."

Hopper became a devoted family man, especially to the youngest of his four children, daughter Galen.

He was also an outspoken, if unlikely, Republican in Hollywood -- yet, unpredictable as ever, voted for Barack Obama in 2008.Hopper had been sober for 30 years when he died of prostate cancer. He was first diagnosed with cancer in 2002, and it recurred a year ago.In his final years, Hopper often expressed frustration over his iconic yet marginalized status in Hollywood."I don't really get any of the roles that one gets nominated for," he had said. "I'm not on their A list at the studios, nor on their B list, nor their C list, nor their D list. So I have to go out and do independent films that most of the time never see a theater, go direct to video."

His résumé included flops like "My Science Project" and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2."Film buffs wonder what his legacy might have been if Hopper hadn't lost decades to intense partying."We're talking 20 years of career as a young man when he didn't make all the right choices," said Steven Gaydos, executive editor of Variety.Hopper was also a serious art lover, with a pop-art collection that included works by Julian Schnabel, Kenny Scharf, Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat and Andy Warhol.He bought his first Warhol soup-can painting for $75.

Gaydos, who served in the LA Film Critics Association, said the group vetoed granting the actor a lifetime achievement award."They thought, 'You can't give it to him, he's done too much crap,' " said Gaydos."But who else has worked with a dozen of the most important directors in history and played some of the most incredible roles in incredible movies? Eventually the clouds disappear, and all that's left is the work."

Kendry Morales' broken leg is a devastating blow


Can there be a bigger swing from the ultimate high to the lowest of lows than the one the Angels' Kendry Morales experienced on Saturday? In the celebration following his game-winning grand slam against Seattle, Morales suffered a broken lower leg when he jumped and landed awkwardly on home plate. Morales is scheduled to undergo surgery on Sunday and his recovery will most likely be measured in months, not weeks, according to the Orange County Register.

Morales had appeared in every Angels game and was hitting .286 with 11 homers and 39 RBI. There's a chance those could be his totals for the entire season. Fantasy owners will need to make immediate plans to fill the void he leaves behind. Besides Morales, only backup catcher Bobby Wilson has even played a single inning at first all season, so there is no ready-made solution. Second baseman Howie Kendrick has played first before, but not since he appeared in 42 games there in 2006. The most likely replacement will come from the Angels' Class AAA affiliate, the Salt Lake Bees. They have major league veteran Robb Quinlan, who's hitting .253 in 23 games and 24-year-old Mark Trumbo, who's hitting .275 with 11 homers and 39 RBI.

No mater what the Angels do, the loss of Morales -- however long it is -- is a major blow to their playoff hopes. Fantasy owners feel their pain.

Tom Cruise Dead is Hoax


Tom Cruise Dead:In fact, that I haven’t had a chance to catch up with all the new trailers that are bouncing around the interwebs until this morning. It’s a strange blend of stuff, big studio movies and tiny indies, long-delayed troubled projects alongside big mechanical release-date-fodder, horror and comedy and action all represented.

I have a theory that “Jonah Hex” is going to sneak up on people as a commercial force this summer, and for reasons that have little or nothing to do with “Jonah Hex” itself. The other day, when I went to G4 to make an appearance to discuss “Lost,” I was in the green room before going on, talking to an eclectic group of people that included me, Devin Faraci, some of the producers of the show, Kevin Pereira, and one of the guys from “Chuck,” and we all ended up talking about “Red Dead Redemption,” the latest game from Rock Star Studios. If you haven’t seen or played it, the game is basically “Grand Theft Leone.” It’s a sprawling sandbox Western game, and heaps of fun. It is, in the opinion of this casual gamer, an immersive and somewhat amazing experience, and for a lot of kids who don’t see many Westerns, it’s got to be a bit of a crash course in the joys of this particular genre.

“Jonah Hex” has elements of the supernatural in it, which gives it a slight edge and makes it different than your standard Western. Like “Red Dead Redemption,” it’s set towards the end of the Western age, and there are modern mechanics involved in both the evil plan of Quentin Turnbull (John Malkovich) and the arsenal that Hex uses to fight him. It’s a movie that straddles a few different genres, and we’ll see if they can pull them all together into a satisfying whole. For now, here’s the second trailer for the film which just premiered on IGN:
Very similar to the first, but tighter. It’s a gamble, but Warner Bros. may well reap the goodwill of Rock Star’s efforts on this one. We’ll see.

Meanwhile, Tom Cruise is determined to rebuild the brand name, and “Knight and Day” is looking more and more like a big fat mainstream hit as they keep cutting and recutting trailers. He and Cameron Diaz appear to have actual chemistry, and James Mangold’s movie looks bigger and crazier than I initially expected.
So busy, in fact, that I haven’t had a chance to catch up with all the new trailers that are bouncing around the interwebs until this morning.

I doubt it’s going to be a narrative surprise, but it looks like it’s got charm to spare.

As their bid to regain control of Miramax stumbled this week, the Weinstein Bros. find themselves in a tough spot. It really does look like they’re at the end of this crazy story of theirs, due in no small part to their own hubris. I think part of it is also that they are chasing a business model that doesn’t exist anymore, acting like the only game that matters is making high-profile Oscar bait they pay for with Bob’s low-budge genre crap.
On the other hand, I am surprised by my reaction to the “Morning Glory” trailer. I didn’t expect anything from this romantic workplace comedy starring Harrison Ford and Diane Keaton and Rachel McAdams, but in the end, I think it works pretty well. Harrison Ford should be playing grumpy funny Spencer Tracy roles at this point, and “Morning Glory” looks like him embracing that idea.
Until the day I die, I will be a Harrison Ford fan on some level, and seeing him look that awake and that in on the joke is thrilling. I think Roger Michell is an underrated and under-used director, and this is well within his skill set. Let’s hope for a slam dunk.

And finally, let’s look at “The Last Exorcism,” which is a new Lionsgate film that was executive produced by Eli Roth and written by two guys I’ve liked for a lot of years now, Andrew Gurland and Huck Botko. Bottom line, those two are crazy, so if they’re making a horror film, I expect to see something that’s going to leave marks on viewers. I don’t want to see another safe horror film or another remake.
That’s a heck of a trailer, and easily one of the slickest of the found-footage movies so far. I don’t think that’s going to be all shaky-cam and cocktease, either. It looks like a really good riff on a horror sub-genre that hasn’t seen many good movies. Basically, there’s “The Exorcist,” and then there’s everything else.

2 year old smoking cigarette










SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - A shocking video went viral Wednesday that might have you talking around the water cooler.Imagine your neighbor’s two-year-old smoking a pack a day. A Sumatran toddler from Indonesia was caught on tape puffing on a cigarette as if he were an adult.

The tot smokes up to forty cigarettes a day. The video shows the toddler puffing on a cigarette, holding it, and twirling it in his chubby, little fingers as if he were stuck with an adult smoking habit.According to news reports, his father gave him his first cigarette at just eighteen months old and now at two they say he throws a tantrum when they refuse to give him one.When ABC 4 showed the video to viewers in Salt Lake City, their reactions were relatively the same.“That's horrible, that is sick and wrong, he's basically got no chance in life for anything.”
“I don't think they even deserve to be parents.”“I think that's irresponsible, their culture is different from ours… so smoking may be more accepted there.”Take a look and tell ABC 4 what you think.

SHOCKING: 2-year-old smoking a cigarette! (VIDEO)










Ardi Rizal is no ordinary 2-year-old toddler – he likes to smoke two packs of cigarettes per day!

The two-year-old started smoking when his dad, Mohammad, gave him a cigarette stick at 18 months.Ardi’s mom, Diana, feels helpless saying: “He’s totally addicted. If he doesn’t get cigarettes, he gets angry and screams and batters his head against the wall. He tells me he feels dizzy and sick.”The 2-year-old even has a brand preference and will only smoke the premium packs that cost £3.78 per day.

To help curb the kid’s habit, the Indonesian government is offering to buy Ardi’s family a car if they get their kid to stop smoking.

Mohammad doesn’t see a problem with Ardi smoking, though. “He looks pretty healthy to me. I don’t see the problem,” said Mohammad.

American Idol VIDEO: Bret Michaels Rocks (Gently) on American Idol








During American Idol‘s big finale Wednesday, when a new winner was crowned at the end of the night, excitement mounted inside L.A.’s Nokia Theatre as Casey James, who finished third in this year’s competition, began the first few verses of Poison‘s “Every Rose Has Its Thorn.” Then, the place erupted as singer Bret Michaels, freshly crowned the winner of The Celebrity Apprentice in New York City just days before, emerged on the stage to join James.

The performance was made even more remarkable since Michaels was recovering from an emergency appendectomy, a brain hemorrhage, and a warning stroke. But nothing was going to stop Michaels. “It was my first musical performance back,” he told reporters, “and after this I’m hoping to go out on the road and I’m really looking forward to it.”

Although Michaels was able to walk off the Idol stage unassisted, he was still very careful about his steps and looked fatigued in the pressroom. He admitted, “Here’s the thing. They have not said everything is okay. I’m running at about 75 percent realistically and physically, but in my soul and in my heart I feel great, and I needed to do this tonight.”His duet with James had been in the works “before I got sick,” Michaels said. “We just weren’t sure because I was out on tour. American Idol is such an incredible experience for any musician to do, right? And to be out on stage with Casey, who I think is one of the most talented ones on here, and for him and me to jam and play guitar together, that was an amazing experience.”

Still, “honestly,” he continued, “a couple weeks ago I didn’t think I would do any of this.”As for how it felt to perform, Michaels said, “I was so excited. I mean, later on I may collapse, but right now, I feel great! My heart was pumping. First of all, I walk out on stage and my fans and friends and family were all here and it was such an awesome feeling to hear them screaming and cheering and singing along with the song. Hey, that’s three generations out there, and that’s all I wanted to do was have a great musical career and to be able to do that twenty some years later — that’s a great feeling.”
Michaels added that he never hesitated about performing. “What it was,” he said, “was I got sick, and I found out I had the hole in my heart, that’s when I was like, man, there are three things that happened, the appendectomy, the brain hemorrhage and then this thing other thing that happened, and I was like, man, I think I’ve had my three, right? They come in threes. I’m good for a while!” –Cynthia Wang

Janet Jackson American Idol 2010 Season Finale Performance Video

Janet Jackson
Janet Jackson American Idol 2010 Season Finale Performance Video – Janet Jackson took the stage this evening during the American Idol 2010 finale where she sang a medley composed of Again/ Nothing/ Nasty at the Nokia Theater.
The performance started out very sweet and mellow with Janet and her new short hair in a long black dress along with the ladies of the season’s competitors singing “Again,” the 1993 single that was featured on Jackson’s fifth studio album, “Janet.”

The former “Idol” hopefuls” collective eventually left the stage and Miss Jackson all alone gave an emotional rendition of her new song “Nothing,” which is featured on the soundtrack of Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married Too?” And suddenly the sweet Jackson disappeared and the singer reemerged in a tight black bodysuit along with few male dancers for a fast past performance of her track “Nasty,” Jackson’s second single from her third studio album, Control (1986).

Lee DeWyze Wins American Idol Season 9










The ninth season has officially come to a close, with Lee DeWyze taking home the title of the next "American Idol."It was only the second time in the show's history where neither of the final two contestants - DeWyze and runner up Crystal Bowersox - had ever finished in the bottom two or bottom three with viewer votes.

The other two to accomplish the feat were Season 7 winner David Cook and runner up David Archuleta. Former winners Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, Taylor Hicks, Jordin Sparks and Cook never landed in the bottom three with viewer votes either.Speaking of viewer votes, the show also paid tribute to departing judge/co-creator Simon Cowell, with a star-studded performance featuring past winners (dressed in black) and past contestants (wearing white).Following the tribute, Cowell took to the stage to thank fans and tell them that it doesn't matter who replaces him as judge on the show because it's the voters who are really the ones doing the work."I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the support, [and] the fun," said a visibly emotional Cowell."The show goes forward, it will be different."

Despite the addition of a brilliant Ellen DeGeneres, this season was perhaps the weakest ever - in addition to the lack of Paula Abdul on the judges panel, the show also seemed to lack the talent it's had in the past; and had numerous comparisons to Karaoke.Maybe DeWyze will go on to prove everyone wrong.

Underdog Lee DeWyze becomes 9th 'American Idol' winner










When he first got started on his American Idol journey, Lee DeWyze was asked why he thought he would be the next winner."Because there's a time and place for everything, and this is my time and my place," replied the mild-mannered paint salesman from Mount Prospect, Ill.For much of the season, that seemed like a long shot; the 24-year-old singer was often hampered by an inferiority complex.

But as he blossomed, the judges boosted him with "You can win this!" praise. And on Wednesday night, sure enough, he won.Crystal Bowersox, the front-runner all season, wiped away tears and looked happy for DeWyze, who was doubled over at times with emotion."I'm just happy, man," he said. "I've never been happier in my life. I appreciate everything everybody has done."But before that confetti-filled moment of joy, the finale was packed with surprise guest performers, including Christina Aguilera, Alanis Morissette, Hall & Oates and Janet Jackson.
One highlight was a spirited duet from Fort Worth's Casey James and Bret Michaels, who was fresh from brain surgery and a Celebrity Apprentice win. Guitars in hand, they belted out "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" in front of a standing ovation.

But this finale was like no other because it was also Simon Cowell's last time on American Idol. During a taped tribute, Paula Abdul remembered their early days on the show, with Cowell telling a bad singer, "Go to an audition where they lie to you. Thank you very much.""I could not believe what was coming out of his mouth," she said. "The best moments were when we were laughing hysterically."

Abdul then appeared in person, offering up a rambling monologue (but hey, that's why she's adored) and ending up where she had many times in the good old days: snuggled in Cowell's lap.From there, they watched the most moving moment of the show. All of the former Idol winners except David Cook, who reportedly was at a charity event, walked out, one by one, to sing together. As an added bonus, a large, white-clad group of also-rans from every season joined them.Abdul then took Cowell's hand and led him onstage.
"I didn't think I was going to be this emotional," said Cowell, whose title onscreen during the first part of Season One had been simply "UK Record Executive."

"The truth is, everyone asks who's going to replace me as the next judge," he told the audience. "The truth is, you guys are the judges of this show, and you've done an incredible job over the years."

Jesse James’ “Nightline” Interview Clip: He Talks Cheating And Cries














Lordy, lordy. Doesn’t this fool have a publicist who could have talked him out of this? “Nightline” has posted a clip of Sandra Bullock‘s soon-to-be-ex, Jesse James, admitting, “I took a pretty amazing life and marriage and threw it away.” And then he cries and walks off camera (natch). No hints yet if any of our 10 predictions of what will happen come true.

Watch more neo-Nazi-loving foolery on Tuesday morning on “Good Morning America” and the full interview on “Nightline” on Tuesday night. The Frisky is toying with the idea of a liveblog, seeing as this is a matter of great import. [Nightline]

Jesse James, Nightline
Jesse James Nightline Interview: Jesse James came up with his views and the reasons for cheating his wife Sandra Bullock. Last night, he gave an interview to Nightline’s Vicki Mabrey. He started the interview by saying “I threw it all away”, and he explained all the reasons for cheating Sandra Bullock.He blamed himself for things, which happened in the last few months after the Oscar award ceremony, where Sandra won the best actress award. He took whole responsibility for all his activities in the last two months.

He said that, he had a perfect marriage and a perfect wife and the perfect life and stepmother and he threw it away because of his actions. He also said that, lack of self-esteem caused him for doing all these things and it was one of the reasons for cheating Sandra Bullock with other women.

Jesse said that his childhood life has got some impact for cheating Sandra. He said that, he has grown up and led his life in a shy manner and he had too many responsibilities on him at very young age.

After the allegations, he was treated as a “the most hated man in America” by all the fans of Sandra Bullock. He gave interview for the first time and spoke about the relationship with Michele McGee after the allegations.

He was asked about “the most hated man in America”. Jesse refused to talk on this and said that “I think they are saying I am the most hated man in the world.”

dancing with the stars winner
It was always Evan vs. Nicole. Throughout season 10 of 'Dancing With the Stars,' the Olympic skating champion and the pop singer were neck and neck atop the leaderboard.

In the end, though, Nicole Scherzinger and partner Derek Hough triumphed, leaving Evan Lysacek and Anna Trebunskaya with silver. ESPN sports reporter Erin Andrews and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy placed third."Everybody's been amazing, I'm so happy," said Hough, now a two-time winner, while Scherzinger simply screamed in glee.

Lysacek showed gracious sportsmanship in defeat. "It's been such a blast. We were totally satisfied with everything we gave in these last few weeks," he said. "And we're so proud of Nicole and Derek. They worked so hard and they deserve it."
Eliminated during the show, Andrews was emotional about the impact of the show on her life. "I came here under really crummy circumstances, and I just wanted to get my life together and my smile back," Andrews told host Tom Bergeron. "I just wanted to be myself again ... and you guys have been amazing and my family -- and this one [Maksim] -- has just put my life back together."

The three finalist couples each chose to reprise an Argentine tango from earlier in the season. The judges ranked them, and those scores were added to Monday night's performances as well as the viewers' votes.

In the Argentine stand-off, Scherzinger and Hough received the top ranking. "You guys are truly artistry in motion," judge Carrie Ann Inaba declared of Scherzinger and Derek Hough.

Then, Scherzinger and Lysacek each danced again. The final scores had the Pussycat Doll leading 115-108.


Season 10's cast -- from a bedazzled Buzz Aldrin to Pam Anderson -- returned to dance again. (Fourth-place finisher Chad Ochocinco had sit out due to a football injury.) 'The Bachelor' star Jake Pavelka and fiance Vienna Girardi brought their romance to this show with a waltz, while reality TV mom Kate Gosselin performed her infamous 'Paparazzi' dance with partner Tony Dovolani.

The star-studded audience included former champions Kelly Monaco (season 1); Apolo Anton Ohno (season 4); Kristi Yamaguchi (season 6); and Shawn Johnson (season 8).

American Idol Preview: Who Will Win?

Two Finalists
Speaking to his fellow judge on her talk show this week, Simon said: “If you’d asked me five or six weeks ago, 100 percent I would have said Crystal. But now I’ve changed my mind.... [Lee] is talented. He hasn’t had any real breaks in life, and this has given him a shot, and I like that.”

So that's Cowell's take on the finals, which gets underway tonight. How does THG handicap the matchup between Lee and Crystal Bowersox? As follows...

WHY CRYSTAL WILL WIN: She's different, she has an incredible voice and her rendition of "People Get Ready" was the best of any contestant this season. It's also about time a woman took home the crown, isn't it?
WHY CRYSTAL WON'T WIN: She may have peaked too early. She also fails to connect with the audience, almost coming across as condescending to the show in general. She's been the favorite for months and votes often like an underdog.HY LEE WILL WIN: He's come on strong over the few weeks. He has Simon's support. He makes an emotional connection with the audience during every song. He also reminds us of David Cook and, hey, that guy won.
WHY LEE WON'T WIN: Viewers are sick of male winners. He lacks a winning personality and he reminds us of David Cook and, hey, that guy already won.

Dancing With The Stars Finale ABC May 24








Dancing With The Stars Finale ABC May 24 2010 Vote – This season, the tenth in the history of the popular “Dancing with the Stars” television show has gone out with a bang this season. Even some of the contestants who did not make it very far in the show (Kate Gosselin and Buzz Aldrin) were able to create a fair amount of media coverage for the program. The final three, Erin Andrews, Evan Lysacek, and Nicole Scherzinger, were not even the most popular contestants on the show.The three remaining had received great scores throughout the competition, and each of them had received “10’s” at one time or another from each judge throughout their duration on the show. However, Erin Andrews had never been able to secure a perfect 30. Both Lysacek and Scherzinger were able to score a perfect 30 in the Paso Doble. Erin Andrews was also able to perform well in that dancing style, but was only able to bring home a 29, falling just short of a perfect score.

According to most fans, there is no real favorite in the competition, and the winner will likely come down to how each contestant performs in the finale. All of them have the dancing ability to take the win home, it all depends on who is going to be able to step it up and get the job done in the finale of “Dancing with the Stars,” that will feature a large number of former contestants, including the controversial Kate Gosselin who was involved in a number of different altercations throughout her time on the show.

Slipknot Bassist Paul Gray Dead at 38










There are numerous reports surfacing saying that Slipknot bassist Paul Gray was found dead in a hotel in Urbandale, IA today. KCCI Des Moines reports Gray was found six hours ago at a Marriott. This backs up an earlier post in the Des Moines Examiner. Gray was 38. He leaves behind a wife, Brenna Paul, who is expecting a child. According to the Examiner, the preliminary reports from the scene indicates a drug overdose as the cause of death.

This is seriously one of the most unfortunate years for deaths in metal that we can think of. In little more than a month, we’ve lost Peter Steele, Ronnie James Dio, and now Paul Gray. If it does indeed turn out to be drug related, it’s an extremely unfortunate turn of events from one of the most popular bands in metal. This is all preliminary, but if Gray is leaving behind a wife and a kid that will grow up never having met his dad, it’s the ultimate selfish move.

Forming in 1995, Slipknot burst onto the nu-metal scene with their self-titled album. Known initially for their appearance and masks, the nine-member band subsequently won over many fans that initially dismissed them with their mix of heaviness and their impressive stage show. The first three Slipknot albums have all gone platinum. Their fourth, 2008’s All Hope is Gone, was their first to debut at #1 and will go platinum later this year.

Mexico vs England : International Friendly Soccer

Rooney
England will face Mexico in an friendly soccer match on May 24. The match is very important for the England footballers because Coach Fabio Capello has a talented squad and every player on its particular position is perfect. All the players will try to perform well as Fabio Capello will announce the final squad for the World Cup on 1 June.




One of England coach’s favorites, Gareth Barry, will miss the game against Mexico due to his ankle injury. It is still not clear that can Barry make a full recovery from his ankle injury before the announcement of the final squad or not. We call him one of Fabio Capello’s favorites as he started 19 matches out of 22 for England since the Italian took charge as England’s new coach.

Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard are fully fit and they are both expected to play against Mexico. Other key players include Aaron Lennon of Tottenhum Hotspur and young Gunner Theo Walcott. James Milner is also expected to play. Milner, an Aston Villa player, has enjoyed a wonderful season with the club and he is Manchester United’s target for next season. Top quality striker Wayne Rooney scored more than 25 goals this season for the Red Devils and he is all set to start in front.

England is currently in Austria where they have been preparing for the mega event next month in South Africa. On May 30, England will face Japan in an International friendly in Austria.

Brittany Murphy's Husband Found Dead

Simon Monjack, Brittany Murphy: So Hot
Simon Monjack has died. The late Brittany Murphy's husband was found unconscious last night and pronounced dead soon after her mother called 911.Law enforcement sources say Brittany's mom, Sharon, discovered him around 9:30, unresponsive. Simon Monjack was pronounced dead after paramedics arrived.He was just 39 years old.
No cause of death is known, however, local broadcasts cited law enforcement sources saying it appeared to be a heart attack. Detectives are investigating.

The LAPD was at the home now along with the coroner, and a death investigation is underway. Many more details are sure to follow as the story develops.The similarities of the spouses' deaths are chilling. Both were found unconscious by Sharon in the same room, possibly having succumbed to cardiac arrest.

Brittany Murphy died from cardiac arrest just five months ago on December 20. Despite being plagued by rumors of illegal drug use and eating disorders, her death was cause by pneumonia, an iron deficiency, anemia and multiple (prescription) drugs.

Strangely enough, two weeks before Brittany Murphy died, paramedics met the couple's return flight from Puerto Rico at LAX and took Simon Monjack straight to the hospital because he was experiencing trouble breathing on board.He was long considered a shady, borderline criminal individual and was under much scrutiny throughout their marriage, which began back in 2007.
Monjack has actively defended Murphy in the months since she died, and even set up a sham charity in her name (he later returned all donations). We'll have more on this breaking story as soon as information becomes available.

Venus Williams French Open Outfit
























If there’s one thing the Williams sisters can work better than a racket, it’s the media. I’d even agree that they can also work public opinion similar to their world class games.
This time, it’s Venus, and because Venus seems to be a little more chill than Serena, it has to be fashion related, right? I’m not so sure what all the fuss is about, but apparently, her “nude-colored” unders created a few gasps and swoons in the Roland Garros crowd. As you can see in the photo, she is sporting somewhat of a dominatrix vibe, and is frighteningly fit–as if she would crush you for trying to catch a glimpse of her “nude-colored” unders.
In a chat with the Los Angeles Times, Venus stated that her outfits this year were a lot “about illusion.” OK. We can dig it. I suppose when you’re that good, you can wear whatever the heck you want. I have no issue with the matching of the skin tone, but I think stripes, polka-dots or some frills would play more into the push for illusion.
I personally remember a U.S. Open I attended in which sister Serena was in a sleek, black, lycra-mix unitard-esque statement that created an audible gasp when she pulled her warm-ups off–this was in a seasoned and slightly jaded New York City stadium, mind you. The Williams sisters have pushed the fashion envelope since stepping into the professional realm of the tennis world, and it begs the question: How far might they go?

Serena Williams Wardrobe Malfunction










Venus Williams has done will to keep the fashion industry on their toes during her reign as one of the top tennis professionals in the world. And, with her high profile sister, Serena, the two are always a treat for the fans. Serena faced hefty fines after her tirade at the U.S. Open against a lineman and she heads to the French Open where her sister was wowing the tennis world with her fashion. In the meantime, Serena Williams wardrobe malfunction came between the two events at the beach.
It seems Serena wasn’t too upset about the fines levied. She really doesn’t seem to be bothered by the trial period she faces in the major tournaments for the next two years. While hanging out in Barbados, she appeared to be doing some exercising or just some fitness activities. The beach is definitely a place for problems and Serena Williams wardrobe malfunction was caught on camera.

It comes with the title celebrity and professional athlete; no matter where you are, someone has a camera. And even if you are Serena Williams and you are on the beach enjoying an afternoon, you can bet someone at least as a phone with a camera sitting around. Indeed, Serena Williams wardrobe malfunction was caught in a photo and in a video. If she plans to show anything in a tennis uniform, the French Open is definitely the place to do it, even if she can’t out do her sister in fashion terms.

Jose Lima, former Major League pitcher, dies at 37



















LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jose Lima, a right-hand pitcher who was a 20-game winner and an All-Star during a 13-year major league career, died Sunday, the Los Angeles Dodgers said. He was 37.Lima, who won 13 games with the Dodgers in 2004, died of an apparent heart attack, according to the Aguilas Cibaenas, a winter ball team that Lima had played for in the Dominican Republic.
“Lima was an exceptional man. This is a great loss for Dominican baseball and the country,” Llenas said.
Referring to his often colorful outings as “Lima Time,” Lima posted his best season in 1999 when he was selected to the All-Star game as a Houston Astro. He went 21-10 in 35 starts with a 3.58 ERA for the NL Central champion Astros.In 13 major league seasons, the native of the Dominican Republic was 89-102 with a 5.26 ERA. He hadn’t pitched in the major leagues since a four-game stop with the New York Mets in 2006.

“He was a man full of life, without apparent physical problems and with many plans and projects on the agenda,” his wife, Dorca Astacio, told ESPNdeportes.com.Lima went 46-42 with the Astros between 1997-2001, and he was a 20-game winner and an All-Star with the Houston team.With the Dodgers in 2004 and 2005, Lima had a record of 13-5, with a 4.07 ERA. In the 2004 National League Division Series, Lima pitched a 5-hit shutout against the St. Louis Cardinals in front of a sell-out crowd at Dodger Stadium. It was the Dodgers first postseason win since Game 5 of the 1988 World Series.He also spent two stints with Detroit and Kansas City.
“This is a shock for us because Lima was a young man who seemed healthy and nobody imagined this,” said Tomas Jimenez, manager of the Aguilas Cibaenas.

Jose Lima DEAD: Former MLB All-Star Dies At 37










Jose Lima, a former MLB All-Star who once won 21 games in a season, is dead, according to ESPN. The web site reports that he died of a heart attack in Los Angeles. He was 37 years old.

Lima spent 13 seasons in the big leagues for five different teams, including multiple stints with the Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals. After winning 21 games with the Houston Astros in 1999, Lima almost set a Major League record by allowing 48 home runs the following season. In 2005, he posted the worst ERA of all time for a pitcher with at least 30 starts.

Since 2008, Lima has pitched for professional baseball teams in South Korea, California and Canada.

Brittany Ashton Holmes













Brittany Ashton Holmes is the actress best known for her role as Darla in the movie The Little Rascals. She played the object of Alfalfa's eye, and eventually is the one who gets the boys to allow the girls in the "He-Man Woman Haters Club." Holmes was only 5 when the movie came out in 1994, so it's safe to say she's all grown up now. Since her days as the adorable Darla, she's been in a few movies -- like 1996's Inhumanoid where she played the character Amy Carver at about 7-years-old.

Since then, we're guessing Brittany did the kid thing and is now a full-fledged 21-year-old adult. We dug up some recent pics of the child star, and though she's a lot older now, you can definitely still see the resemblance.

Google Pac-Man Anniversary Logo Game












When I was growing up, my dad had the best job I could possibly imagine: he was an arcade game and pinball technician. For me, that meant summer trips through Poland’s coastal cities with their seasonal arcade parlors; peeking inside cabinets to learn programming and engineering secrets; and—of course—free games!One of my favorites was PAC-MAN, whose popularity transcended the geopolitical barriers of that time. During the heyday of space shooters, Tōru Iwatani’s creation stood out as one of the first video games aimed at a broader audience, with a cute story of pizza-shaped character gobbling dots in a maze, colorful (literally!) characters, friendly design, very little violence and everlasting fun.

Today, on PAC-MAN’s 30th birthday, you can rediscover some of your 8-bit memories—or meet PAC-MAN for the first time—through our first-ever playable Google doodle. To play the game, go to google.com during the next 48 hours (because it’s too cool to keep for just one day) and either press the “Insert Coin” button or just wait for a few seconds.

Google doodler Ryan Germick and I made sure to include PAC-MAN’s original game logic, graphics and sounds, bring back ghosts’ individual personalities, and even recreate original bugs from this 1980’s masterpiece. We also added a little easter egg: if you throw in another coin, Ms. PAC-MAN joins the party and you can play together with someone else (PAC-MAN is controlled with arrow keys or by clicking on the maze, Ms. PAC-MAN using the WASD keys).
PAC-MAN seems like a natural fit for the Google homepage. They’re both deceptively straightforward, carefully hiding their complexity under the hood. There’s a light-hearted, human touch to both of them. And we can only hope you find using Google at least a quarter as enjoyable as eating dots and chasing ghosts. You know, without actually needing any quarters.

Below is a winning fight picks play on this intriguing match-up of giants.

Fight Picks Analysis:

If physical appearance determined the winner of fights than the 6’1” 273 Lb. mountain of muscle Pudzianowski would steamroll the roly poly bodied Sylvia. This is organized fisticuffs however and skill trumps brute strength most of the time. The 34-year old Sylvia is past his prime but is still a well-rounded and experienced pro. The MMA Moosin Tim Sylvia vs. Mariusz Pudzianowski Fight Odds have Pudzianowski as a +180 MMA Odds underdog.

The “Dominator” Mariusz has no fundamental skill to speak of and really doesn’t possess dangerous striking power despite his awesome strength. Pudzianowksi could pop a man’s head off with a headlock but he is hittable, slow and has a very small gas tank. The 6’8” 305 Lb. Sylvia should be able to use movement and straight punches to dominate the shorter clumsy Pudzianowski. Go heavy on Tim Sylvia for 3 UNITS on the MMA betting money line.

150 killed in Air India crash in Mangalore















About 150 people were killed when an Air India Express flying from Dubai overshot the runway after landing at the Mangalore airport near here early Saturday amid a drizzle and caught fire as it crashed into a forested gorge, authorities said.

A grim looking Karnataka Chief Minister B.S. Yeddyurappa told reporters about three hours after the disaster that the Boeing 737 was carrying more than 160 people and "survivors were unlikely".
"Except for five or six people who were rescued, we fear the rest of the passengers (and crew) may not have survived." he told reporters in Bangalore
, the state capital, before leaving for the crash site. "It is a grave tragedy."
The plane was carrying 163 passengers and six crew members. The passengers included four infants.The airport at Bajpe, about 30 km from Mangalore, is in a hilly area and considered one of the most difficult airports to take off and land. The area had been experiencing heavy rains for the last two days.
Aviation experts said the Mangalore airport required precision landing because there is hardly any overshoot area. There was no immediate official word, however, why the plane met with the accident.The tragedy took place around 6.30 a.m. The pilot gave no distress signal before the plane went down.

Villagers from the neighbourhood were among the first to rush to the gorge as the plane crashed and broke into several pieces with a deafening roar and sending huge flames leaping into the sky.Firemen and police personnel from the airport quickly began rescue operations, only to come across ghastly scenes of mangled bodie strew over a large area.
In no time, about 25 ambulances and over 20 fire tenders were involved in the frantic operation. But large crowds gathered, including many rushing all the way from the airport.Some of the charred bodies still had the seat belts on.

Acharyal said.
Managalore airport manager Peter Abrahim said there were initial difficulties in reaching the accident.
Prime Minister Manmohan Singh condoled the loss of lives in the air crash at the Mangalore airport Saturday and ordered Rs.200,000 for the families of the dead and Rs.50,000 for the injured.
