Yesterday, David Letterman addressed the live “Late Night” audience regarding a blackmail case involving sexual relations with his female staffers. The audience didn’t seem to take it as seriously as Letterman expected. An arrest was made in the extortion case after a Grand Jury found wrong-doing and Letterman and his attorney offered the man $2 million to keep it private.

The acting world lost one of their own recently when Patrick Swayze lost his battle with Cancer. Most women have their favorite Swayze role or moment that they will remember; whether it is the pottery scene in Ghost with Demi Moore or when he made sure that nobody put “Baby” in the corner in Dirty Dancing. He will certainly be missed by the female population. However, there is one thing that all men can agree on, this man truly had a great head of hair. We would like to take this time to reflect on his most complete body of work, the evolution of his fantastic follicles.

Posted By Ben Goulding, 14 September, 2009 | permalink

Did you see it? Kanye West jumped onto the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards after Taylor Swift won Best Female Video and let the world know that he thought Beyonce made one of the best videos of all time…A-W-K-W-A-R-D!

His outburst has already been made into an Obama spoof. Check it out.

So should Kanye have shown some restraint and respect to Taylor Swift, or was he within his rights to voice his opinions? Either way, it’s got him what he ultimately wanted – publicity.

Did You See It?

Posted By Ben Goulding, 10 September, 2009 | permalink


(Youtube Link)

Previously, I told you that Derren Brown would aim to predict the lottery numbers on 09/09/09, and guess what, he did it! Derren correctly predicted the winning lottery balls 2, 11, 23, 28, 35 and 39.

He will reveal how he did it tonight at 9pm on Channel 4 (UK). In the meantime though, does anyone have any theories? I’m totally dumbfounded at the moment.

Derren Brown Will Predict The National Lottery Numbers Live On TV Before The Draw Takes Place

Posted By Ben Goulding, 8 September, 2009 | permalink

English magician and illusionist Derren Brown will aim to predict the results of the UK national lottery draw tomorrow night (09/09/09), live on television before the draw is made.


(Youtube Link)

Now, I’ve seen some of the stuff Derren has done, and it’s quite spectacular, but this is just crazy. How can he possibly predict the lottery numbers? There’s a one in 14 million chance of choosing the money balls!

I personally can’t wait to see this. It will either be a huge success, or he’ll look like a complete fool on television and his career will probably be ruined. Live on Channel 4 (UK), tomorrow night at 10.35pm, make sure you catch it.

Star Wars Lightsaber Chopsticks

I’m surprised it took so long for these to be thought of, but from November you will be able to buy Star Wars lightsaber chopsticks. They will cost $10 each from Kotobukiya and are available in Darth Vader Red, Yoda Green or Luke Skywalker Blue. When these chop sabers hit the shops, my fork goes out the window!

The Wii Bowling Ball – perhaps the most dangerous Wii accessory of all time! Whilst Nintendo is all for user safety, the Wii Bowling Ball breaks all the rules.

What do you get when you mix a bowling ball with a Wii remote, over-enthusiastic children, swinging arms and a television? A DISASTER!

Take a look at the informercial by CTA Digital, the manufacturers of the Bowling Ball. Would you ever consider buying one?
