Quote of the Day — Seal v. Heidi Klum: “She Cheated With the Help”

Written by , Posted in General

“To be quite honest, if there is going to be somebody else in their lives, I’d much rather it was a familiar face. I guess the only thing I would have preferred is that. . . I guess I didn’t expect any better from him, I would have preferred Heidi show a little bit more class and at least wait until we separated first before deciding to fornicate with the help, as it were . . . . But I guess you now all have the answer that you’ve been looking for for the past seven months.” Seal, on the rumors that Heidi Klum is currently dating her bodyguard coupled with the shocking confession that she cheated.

David Wax Museum Debuts “Harder Before It Gets Easier” Video

Written by , Posted in General

There’s a special place in my heart for David Wax Museum. I play them to uplift my attitude when I have the much maligned task of cleaning my abode. They put me in a happy place. Watch below to see their new video for “Harder Before It Gets Easier,” off their next album, ‘Knock Knock Get Up.'” It’s got just the right amount of artistic creepiness. According to the band, the makeup process took three day..

Highlights of the Republican National Convention . . . So Far

Written by , Posted in General

Written By: Rik Sault, Contributing Writer

After a few hiccups due to Hurricane Isaac, the Republican National Convention has been moving forward in Tampa, also known as the strip-club capital of the United States. Unsurprisingly, Mitt Romney was officially nominated as the Republican presidential candidate, and the GOP lined up a number of Republican heavy-hitters to get the Party riled up for the next few months.

Chris Christie

Tuesday night, NJ governor Chris Christie was the keynote speaker. Unsurprisingly, the bellowing self-promoter talked about himself for 16 minutes before even mentioning Romney’s name. He said a few interesting things about how its better to be respected than loved, the nation must embrace the power of sacrifice, and Republicans have the right idea because they are not afraid to say no when no is the right answer. He decried a lack of leadership in the White House, advocating for politicians who lead rather than politicians who pander. Click here to read the full text of Christie’s speech.

Ann Romney

Ann Romney — who has previously never appeared before a crowd that size — made a strong pitch to women voters, with whom the Romney/Ryan ticket is not all that popular. She tried to show the “softer side” of Mitt; she used the word “love” 14 times, talked about their high-school romance, and shared the struggles the couple has overcome.

Mrs. Romney proclaimed there theirs was a real marriage, not a fairy tale marriage. As part of this speech she mentioned her multiple sclerosis, stating that the fairy tales she read did not have a chapter called MS (thank goodness that is true). Considering Mitt’s heel-turn on the issue of stem cell research, this was an especially curious public conversation. In fact, Ann once publicly expressed hope that embryonic stem cell research would hold a cure for her MS, but Mitt has become fervently opposed to embryo cloning and other techniques that allow such research to progress.

Mrs. Romney closed her speech by driving home the belief that, “you can trust Mitt.” In trying to help people understand the caring, personal side of her husband, she did not offer many specific examples or anecdotes, but instead explained that Mitt “doesn’t like to talk about how he has helped others because he sees it as a privilege, not a political talking point.” She went on, “And we’re no different than the millions of Americans who quietly help their neighbors, their churches and their communities. They don’t do it so that others will think more of them. They do it because there is no greater joy.”

Ron Paul

The Convention barred half of Maine’s delegates for Ron Paul with an unusual set of challenges and, on Tuesday, those Paul delegates tried to reverse the decision on the convention floor. But they failed in spite of fierce support from some of the other delegates. Before Paul’s Maine supporters left, they loudly chanted, “We were robbed!”

Movie Review: The Expendables 2

Written by , Posted in General

WRITTEN BY: DAN O’CONNELL, CONTRIBUTING WRITER

When our favorite crew of mercenaries led by Barney (Sylvester Stallone), Lee (Jason Statham) and the rest of the boys are blackmailed into doing a job in Bulgaria by the vindictive Mr. Church (Willis), things naturally go awry and they run afoul of one Jean Villain (Jean-Claude Van Damme), who’s using Bulgarian residents to salvage plutonium out of an underground mine. So along with Booker (Chuck Norris) and Trench (Arnold Schwarzenegger), they blow tons of stuff up and shoot countless rounds of semi-automatic ammo to take him down. While it lacks the freshness of the first installment, the gang knows what their audience wants – blood, guts and mindless, unrealistic violence – and delivers it without flinching.
