Red Sox World Series Win turns racist .. on twitter

Twitter Turns Anger Into Racism Over Red Sox World Series Victory
redsoxracism


The St. Louis Cardinals lost to the Boston Red Sox in Game 6, as the Red Sox claimed the 2013 World Series. It was a brilliant performance from the Red Sox all around, but the Cardinals fans didn’t seem to appreciate their teams efforts.

Boston clinched their first World Series at home since 1918, but it is the Red Sox fans who are making themselves look silly for comments unrelated to baseball.

Instead of placing blame and directing their anger at their own team, they decided to stoop very low and show why so many people need to learn that you must think before you tweet.

St. Louis had been unable to get much going on offense, so instead of blaming their team for the poor performance, the fans have directed insults at Red Sox pitchers Junichi Tazawa and closer  Koji Uehara. They also decided to throw racist remarks at David Ortiz, just because.

It is frightening, sad and really shows how much progress the nation still needs to make.

Check out some of the comments: (Warning: Vulgar and racist comments below)

CBS in talks for HIMYM spinoff titled (wait for it) How I Met Your Father


“How I Met Your Mother” fans may not have to part ways with their beloved series at the end of this final season just yet.

Variety has confirmed that CBS is in discussions with 20th Century Fox TV for a spinoff of the comedy, which will offer a femme spin on the original show. As Deadline first reported, spinoff is from “HIMYM” creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas along with Emily Spivey, and is being referred to as “How I Met Your Father.” Project would center on a group of friends living in Gotham, and one woman’s quest to meet her future husband.

The concept is not tied to any of the current “HIMYM” characters. The Eye tells Variety it has received a pitch for the project and is in on-going discussions, but that no deal has been secured yet.

Miley Cyrus to Star in Super Bowl Commercial?

MILEY Cyrus is apparently going to star in a Super Bowl TV commercial — and the deal will make her one the highest-paid celebs ever!
A source told the National Enquirer that Miley is in talks to appear in an ad for Wonderful Pistachios!

“Miley’s deal will top even last year’s record-breaking $3.8 million per 30-second Super Bowl commercial spot for Wonderful Pistachios that starred Gangnam-style dance maniac, PSY — also scored a big payday,” said an insider.

“But now Wonderful Pistachios’ gone nuts for mega-twerkin’ Miley, and they’re willing to shell out even bigger bucks to get her.

“It’s a multimillion-dollar Super Bowl ad – she’d be nuts to turn it down.”

Laguna Beach Alum Christina Sinclair Is Pregnant With Her First Child



She's coming clean! Nine years after she appeared on MTV's smash hit Laguna
Beach, Christina Sinclair (formerly Schuller) has announced that she's expecting
her first child with husband Chad Sinclair. She married Chad in August 2011.

The 27-year-old former reality star now is a fitness instructor in California
and runs the blog Beach Babe Fitness where she made the big announcement.

"It's time to spill the beans... I'm having a baby in May!" she wrote on her
site. "This is wayyy harder than I thought it was going to be. Luckily I haven't
felt too nauseous, but the way I like to explain the way I feel on a daily basis
is that I'm hungover 24/7 but obviously haven't been drinking.... ya it sucks."

Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst Developing Drama at The CW


Fred Durst once did it all for the nookie. Now he's doing it all for The Noise. The CW is developing a one-hour drama project with the Limp Bizkit frontman based on his life.

The Noise, created by Durst, chronicles the rise of a young artist in the 1990s who escapes a tumultuous home life and forms a wildly popular band with a unique sound. (lol) Durst, of course, hit it big with his rap metal band Limp Bizkit, which formed in 1994 and went on to superstardom with hits like "Nookie," "Break Stuff" and their cover of George Michael's "Faith."

Durst is a co-executive producer on the script, while Miles Feld is writing. Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum are executive producers, through CBS TV Studios.

This marks the second time Durst has worked on a TV series about his life. Two years ago CBS developed the sitcom Douchebag, also with Durst and the Tannenbaums, about a rock star balancing his wild ways and his young family.

As the popularity of rap metal waned, Durst has focused on film and TV in recent years. He directed the 2007 feature The Education of Charlie Banks and 2008's The Longshots, plus earlier this year executive produced the feature Pawn Shop Chronicles.

The Jonas Brothers Break-Up: A Sort of Shut-Off Happened



When the moment came to break up the Jonas Brothers on Oct. 3, Nick Jonas tells PEOPLE that he went "into a bit of trance."

"You prep a million ways," says Nick, 21. But once he admitted to his brothers how he felt, that he wasn't sure the band could continue as it was, "there was sort of a shut-off that happened. It took some time, about 24 hours or so, before we could really talk about it."

On Tuesday came the exclusive announcement to PEOPLE that, as a professional music team, the sibling trio are "over for now."

At first, Joe, 24, and Kevin, 25, said they were shocked by what went down.

"Kevin and I thought we were going into a meeting about releasing some of the music we'd been working on," says Joe. Instead, Nick told them he was considering calling it quits.

Joe says he didn't say much at first, but Kevin and Nick talked late into the night. By the next morning, the brothers began to speak openly, in a way they never had before.

"There were tears and yelling from everybody," admits Nick.


But, adds Kevin, "It was the most real, the most intense conversation that we've had in our lives together."

Ultimately, the brothers decided, the best way to save their personal relationship was to break up the band. "Prioritizing our family is really important to us," says Nick.

"We're choosing our family because it was becoming toxic," says Kevin, who admits his relationship with his brothers was suffering, in part, because his focus was elsewhere.

"I wasn't contributing to the music the way I should have," says Kevin, who, admittedly, is more interested in the business side of things.

source

Sigh...Nick's getting a lot of hate but he's at least being honest, I guess. That said I think it's weird that these issues suddenly just came up in the last two months. I mean I feel like if there were issues, you'd think they'd have realized it during the entire 2 years they've been working on the album.

There's also a video of fans meeting Nick outside his home after the band's appearance on GMA. He's always so polite to them, I'd be telling them to GTFO I live here. I'm sure his neighbors probably don't love groups of girls wandering around outside while they're trying to go about their business either.

David Bowie & his puppet pals wish you a very disturbing Halloween



Never one to fall in with the crowd, David Bowie has produced an exceptionally disturbing homemade music video for James Murphy's remix of 'Love Is Lost', a track from his latest album The Next Day. The video has Bowie menaced by two puppets of himself, one dressed as The Thin White Duke (harking back to the Station to Station album) and the other as the pierrot from the cover of the Scary Monsters album.

While there has yet to be confirmation on this point, both puppets appear to be castaways from Bowie's abandoned video for 'The Pretty Things Are Going to Hell' - the video was shot in 1999 for the Hours... album, but was never used. An interesting point is that the puppets were produced by the Jim Henson Creature Shop, who Bowie collaborated with in 1986 for Henson's fantasy-adventure Labyrinth. A Ziggy Stardust puppet (not seen in the video) made for the music video of 'The Pretty Things Are Going to Hell' can be seen here.

Top 10 [5] Television Serial Killers


Last week, we tackled the best serial killers the silver screen had to offer, so this week we've moved to the small screen (guess we're just in a serial killer kind of mood). With the same rules in mind (our killers must have no supernatural abilities and must be insane), we surfed through our DVRs looking for the best of the baddies we've seen over the years and came up with a mix of villains almost as crazy as the characters themselves are. So, make sure you lock your doors and check on the children, because some of these guys are absolutely bone-chilling (and some just like playing with human bones).

Catch A Fire: How Republic Records Changed Tactics To Promote The New Hunger Games Soundtrack



In early October, executives from Republic Records were attending a film premiere and discussing the promotion of a soundtrack. As much as they were proud of the film receiving its Los Angeles debut that night-Greg Camalier's documentary "Muscle Shoals"-and its Republic-released soundtrack (and its one new track: Alicia Keys' cover of Bob Dylan's "Pressing On"), the next film project promised to be much larger in scope, "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire."

Nineteen months ago, "The Hunger Games" became the first film franchise to launch in March, and the first for its distributor Lionsgate. The movie topped the box office for four straight weeks, grossing $408 million in the United States and another $283.2 million in the rest of the world, according to figures compiled by Box Office Mojo. The soundtrack-The Hunger Games: Songs From District 12 and Beyond, overseen by T Bone Burnett and led by a Taylor Swift single featuring the Civil Wars, "Safe & Sound"-was a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200, and has sold 480,000 copies, according to Nielson SoundScan. "Safe & Sound" won a Grammy Award for best song written for visual media in February.

Needless to say, the musical possibilities for all things "Hunger Games" have increased in the time since. The conversation in Los Angeles that early October evening was about the soundtrack's first three singles being released simultaneously on iTunes and promoted at radio more than six weeks ahead of the film. There was also the possibility of soundtrack artists making the rounds on TV talk shows. And last, but by no means least, were the opportunities for Republic's own roster-with recent successes Lorde and the Weeknd both appearing on "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," and a track from recent signing Phantogram, "Lights," already being used in connection with presales at the Fandango website.

"The first soundtrack came out in March of 2012. This will come out November of '13," Republic executive VP Tom Mackay says. "Within that space of time our company has really grown. And it's picked up bands like Of Monsters and Men, the Weeknd, Lorde, Phantogram. It's exciting to have those kinds of bands associated with the soundtrack, but it's also a testament to the development of the label. I also think these artists were naturally passionate about participating."

Britain's Michael Bay Considered Casting Johnny Depp as the 45th Doctor, Drops Some J. Hurt Spoilers

deppter

What would "Doctor Who" fans think if Johnny Depp popped up as the Doctor? It's entirely possible they'd revolt, but showrunner Steven Moffat says the thought has crossed his mind.

While speaking to SFX magazine about "Doctor Who's" 50th anniversary, Moffat explains the decision to bring John Hurt on board as a dark Doctor for the special episode. "Why not a mayfly Doctor, who exists for one show only?" he wonders. "I'd often thought about that. Would it be weird in the run of the series to have the 45th Doctor turn up and be played by Johnny Depp or someone? Would that be a cool thing to do?"

The 2000's Awesome Horror Ass Kickers

banner

With the resurgence of horror thanks to movies like Scream, horror was hotter than ever in the 2000s. It certainly became one of the most popular genres of film at the time (still is). With the popularity of horror at an all time high, it was obvious that some new actresses were going to step up to the plate to make their own name in the world of horror. With the remake trend, found footage, and torture porn exploding at every seam, a ton of actresses have made a career out of horror and cementing their own spot in the grand hallway of scream queens.

Sky Ferreira on Her Debut 'Night Time, My Time' and Drugs

'I'm not saying that people should do ecstasy, but at least it's a happy drug,' she says



This week marks the release of Sky Ferreira's debut Night Time, My Time — an album that's been five years in the making. The budding pop star started making music at the age of 15, and was signed to Parlophone records by the time she was 17. But constant record label drama and ensuing album delays led to a string of EPs, the second of which unexpectedly hit last year with her infectious single, "Everything Is Embarrassing." The song topped best of 2012 lists and was remixed by everyone from Twin Shadow and Unicorn kid to Unknown Mortal Orchestra. Since then, she played Fallon, posed as the face of mega-retailer Forever 21, partied with Madonna at the Met Ball, and toured with Vampire Weekend.

Recently, she's made headlines for an arrest in upstate New York for for possession of ecstasy (along with her boyfriend Zachary Cole Smith of DIIV, who was allegedly busted with heroin at the same time) and the topless photo that serves as the cover art for Night Time, My Time. Rolling Stone recently spoke with Ferreira in Brooklyn, about her industry woes, being pigeonholed as a model and that nagging drug arrest.

Festive Mariah Carey getting into the Halloween spirit with her fam

Mariah Carey may be one of the busiest singers around, but when it comes to her children she has all the time in the world.

The 43-year-old songstress took time out to appreciate the Halloween season on Sunday by posting a cute tweet of herself posing at home with her son Moroccan holding a miniature pumpkin. The two-year-old boy is wearing a pair of red plaid pajamas while Mariah is wrapped in a silky polka dot robe with one bare leg showing. Roc, as Mariah lovingly refers to him, is staring at the camera with his eyes big as saucers.

'Roc's first pumpkin!!!' Mariah captioned the photo. The toddler is not only holding an orange pumpkin but he also has a red lollipop in his other hand. Perhaps Roc didn't want to part with either of them as Mariah led him up to bed.

Yaani King (Peggy's Secretary on Mad Men) joins Lifetime's Post-Civil War Set Drama.

Yaani King - Peggy's Secretary on Mad Men, wearer of questionable lipsticks & recipient of awkward hugs, joins Lifetime's Post-Civil War Set Drama 'Deliverance Creek'.



Yaani King - an actress who S&A readers would recognize from web series like RoomieLoverFriends, Milk & Honey, as well as Matthew Cherry's feature film debut The Last Fall), has landed a series regular role on Lifetime’s upcoming new drama Deliverance Creek, from Nicholas Sparks Prods.

In what will be a two-hour movie/backdoor pilot, set at the end of the American Civil War, Deliverance Creek follows a young woman's attempts to defend her family’s land by any means necessary, even if it means becoming an outlaw. The series will star Lauren Ambrose, as the young woman.

Yaani King will play a character named Kessiah “Kessie” Washington, who's described as a plantation slave who forges her own freedom papers, and then sets out for the place called Deliverance Creek, intent on also saving her family from slavery (she was also described as 'quick-witted' on deadline - op).

King's resume includes lots of TV work, including stints on Saving Grace and Numbers.

‘The Butler’ Becomes 1st Black Film with Black Director To Break $100 Million Sales Mark In Over 20



Lee Daniels’ The Butler has reached a new milestone. According to reports, the drama is the first black film of 2013 to surpass the $100 million sales mark at the box office. In addition, it’s now the first “black film” directed by a black filmmaker to reach the achievement in the last 23 years. “You’d find very few films that tell stories about black people, and that were directed by black filmmakers, with grosses of over $100 million,” Indie Wire reports.

“Part of the reason for that is that, within the studio system, black directors just haven’t always been given the opportunity to direct “black films” – especially those that did gross over $100 million in recent years, like Django Unchained, Dreamgirls, The Pursuit Of Happyness, and even Big Mommas House, which all grossed over $100 million, in their years of release, un-adjusted for inflation.”

Thanks to the success of the film, Lee Daniels says big box office bucks are no longer a concern for his future projects. “I don’t think I’m going to have a problem now. I made $100 million for The Butler,” he said. “I’m in a rare group. So this is something I feel good about.”

Sources say the The Best Man Holiday, set for a November 15 release, has the potential to reach a similar height.

Top 10 Fashion Films of the Season



What makes a good fashion film? We posed this question to Diane Pernet, the founder of fashion film festival A Shaded View on Fashion Film, just a few weeks ago. “For me, the criteria of what’s a good film and what’s a good fashion film are really quite the same, except that [with the latter] fashion has to be the protagonist,” she told BoF. ”Just because someone is moving in front of the camera doesn’t make it a film. A film has a story.”

Several fashion brands seem to have reached a similar conclusion. If last season’s top 10 fashion films were dominated by quirky, visually-driven shorts, this season has seen the unmistakable rise of narrative storytelling. By employing actual filmmakers — for example, Stuart Blumberg, the writer of 2010′s The Kids Are Alright, and Luca Guadagnino, who directed 2010′s I Am Love — brands have been able to craft the kinds of narratives that successfully engage viewers for longer than a few minutes. And whereas fashion films of the past often focused more squarely on communicating the clothes, this season’s winning films were more about telling stories that communicate a brand’s essential values.

Another major trend that emerged this season was the rise of educational fashion videos — often snappy and animated — which brands like Dior and Chanel, in particular, have debuted to enthusiastic reception. Aimed in no small part at audiences in emerging markets, these films — often employing devices like voiceover and subtitles — usually present a lesson on a brand’s history, key products and aesthetic codes in a way that blends entertainment value with informational messaging. Importantly, this kind of content also lasts longer than a season, contributing to a brand’s digital archive.

Now, without further ado, sit back and enjoy BoF’s Top 10 Fashion Films of the Season. And don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments below.

JoAnna Garcia Swisher is about to go under the sea, and on land, playing Ariel, aka The Little Mermaid, this Sunday on ABC’s “Once Upon a Time.”

AccessHollywood.com: Tell me about your connection to this character. You had to have been a huge fan of the movie, ‘The Little Mermaid,’ right?

JoAnna Garcia Swisher: No doubt. Not only was I a huge fan of the movie, I was a huge fan of the show and [that’s] something that Eddy [Kitsis] and Adam [Horowitz, the show’s executive producers] knew from Day 1. And Jen Morrison [Emma Swan] is one of my dearest girlfriends, so I have watched the show religiously and was really excited about the idea of one day being able to do it and it just worked out that they brought Ariel in at a time where I was able to go and do it. It was really exciting.

Ariana Grande is a sexy vampire



After toying with cat ears for the past few weeks, it seems as though Ariana Grande took her Halloween costume in an entirely different direction. Where she ended up, though, is unclear. Ariana posted a picture to her Instagram wearing vampire teeth, fake blood, light contacts, and...a bra and a robe?

Is she a Victoria's Secret vampire? A vampire whose coffin-wear is casual PJs? In the caption of the photo Ariana reveals Halloween is her "favorite holiday bar none," which is clear: there's a lot going on. This costume, while casual, is also terrifying. Like, that's a lot of blood. Those eyes will haunt my dreams forever. They are staring into my soul. I don't know what she's doing with her hand (making a claw?), but that combined with the blood, eyes, and teeth is almost too much. Is she waving? Ahhh, IDK but I'm scurred.

Ariana's also managed to include something ~sexy~ in her costume (BTW, where does one get a rhinestone-encrusted bra?) without letting it overshadow just how creepy the rest of her costume is. In the Halloween store, this would be categorized with the other "Stuff Nightmares Are Made Of" costumes, not "Sexy Vampires/Witches/Ghosts." Considering how much Ariana loves Halloween and how many costumes she's dabbled in so far (remember the chicken suit?), we have a feeling she'll be showing off different looks today. If not, we'll still be terrified of this one for weeks.

Hidden Haunts: 10 (5) Scariest Movies You May Have Never Seen

Looking for frightening fare to watch on Halloween night? We thought about writing a list of the most terrifying movies ever made, but you certainly don’t need the august cultural mandarins at TIME to tell you that the likes of The Exorcist and The Silence of the Lambs and John Carpenter’s Halloween (pictured) are three of the scariest movies of all time. But if you’re looking for a scary movie (or two, or 10) that you may not have seen before, look no further.

Several of these are from overseas, from countries that have older, deeper traditions of folk storytelling and monster legends than we Americans do. So it figures that they might know what they’re doing in the horror film department. And one is silent, so they probably didn’t show it on Saturday afternoon TV too often.

Ay dios mio! Fifty Shades of Grey Adds Victor Rasuk as Jose Rodriguez



"How to Make It in America" star Victor Rasuk has joined the cast of director Sam Taylor-Johnson's upcoming film adaptation of E L James' bestseller, Fifty Shades of Grey, Deadline reports. He'll play the role of Jose Rodriguez, Christian Grey's chief competition for Anastasia Steele.

The news comes shortly after the casting of Jamie Dornan in the title role, replacing the formerly-attached Charlie Hunnam. The film also stars Dakota Johnson, Jennifer Ehle and Luke Grimes with Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti producing the movie version alongside James.

"Fifty Shades of Grey" (first published in 2011) follows the relationship of 27-year-old billionaire Christian Grey (Dornan) and college student Anastasia Steele (Johnson). Subsequent novels in the series, "Fifty Shades Darker" (2011) and "Fifty Shades Freed" (2012) explore the couple's deepening relationship.

Secret Service Agent/Witness: Victim and Cop LIED About Chris Brown Punching Him


The Secret Service -- charged with protecting the President of the United States -- could end up protecting Chris Brown from being sent to prison ... TMZ has learned.

Here's what we know.  According to official D.C. documents -- obtained by TMZ -- a witness to the fight early Sunday morning told cops he heard the alleged victim tell a D.C. cop Brown NEVER HIT HIM.

The cop later DENIED ever even speaking with the witness in question.  But get this.  A Secret Service agent -- who was on duty and in uniform patrolling the streets near the White House -- made contact with D.C. police and told them he happened to be around when the victim told the cop Chris never struck him.   The agent says he absolutely heard the victim's admission to the cop that Chris never struck him.


This is doubly helpful for Chris. The Secret Service agent's testimony could destroy the credibility of the alleged victim and cause prosecutors to drop the misdemeanor assault case. It could also save Chris from the more serious probation revocation in the Rihanna case -- and remember, if the judge revokes Brown's probation, he could go to prison for 4 years.

Your tax dollars at work.

I love raining on ONTD's Chris Brown hatred parties :D Chris still needs to sort out his anger issues/being molested as a child, but also, that police officer needs to be fired for lying.

Creator of The Wire/Treme Shares His Thoughts on 12 Years a Slave



I’m fresh out of a theater in Santa Monica, California where I’ve watched 12 Years A Slave for the second time, having seen it several days ago on a laptop screen through a dedicated download.  I’ll be honest.  I wanted to write something after absorbing the narrative and the imagery the first time, but I was so wrought that I didn’t trust myself.

Had a film with American participation actually addressed the original sin of our nationhood so bluntly, so honestly?  Was the film really as careful and delicate and dispassionate with the historical reality?  Was the restraint that i felt in the telling really there, or had the punches been carefully loaded as Hollywood is so apt to do?

On first viewing, I was simply startled by how genuinely fair the storytelling had been with the subject matter.  Sadism and soullessness was balanced by moments of regret and conscience on the part of white characters.  Accommodation and supplication on the part of Southern slaves was punctuated by instants of desperate courage and dignity.

Kelly Clarkson: 'I'm not a feminist'

KC

Songstress Kelly Clarkson has opened up about her stance on women's rights and confessed that while she wouldn't declare herself a feminist, she loves being independent and also enjoys being looked after by her husband.

During a new interview with Time magazine, Clarkson admitted that she wouldn't consider herself a feminist but she is very proud of the fact that she has worked very hard to support herself since she was in her late teens:

"I wouldn’t say [I'm a] feminist, that’s too strong. I think when people hear feminist it’s just like, ‘Get out of my way I don’t need anyone'. I love that I’m being taken care of, and I have a man that’s an actual leader. I’m not a feminist in that sense… but I’ve worked really hard since I was 19, when I first auditioned for Idol."

Screws of the World: Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson Had a 6 year long Affair

Hackgate: Phone hacking jury told Rebekah Brooks and Andy Coulson had six-year affair
Relationship covers much of period editors are said to have been involved in criminal conspiracy to hack phones





with fellow news person Piers Morgan

Rebekah Brooks had a secret affair for at least six years with Andy Coulson, her successor as editor of the News of the World, it emerged at the Old Bailey on Thursday.

The jury in the phone-hacking trial was told that the clandestine relationship took place between 1998 and 2004, covering much of the period when Brooks and Coulson are said to have been involved in a criminal conspiracy to hack phones.

Andrew Edis QC, for the crown, said the revelation was not designed to invade their privacy but to help the prosecution demonstrate that they had a deeply trusting relationship during their period working together at the News of the World.

The existence of the relationship was discovered after police found a letter from Brooks to Coulson dated February 2004.

Don Lemon To Chris Brown: 'Not Everyone Talking in Your Ear Has Your Best Interest at Heart'


I’m conflicted when it comes to this Chris Brown story.

Conflicted because he’s a celebrity, and I know it’s easy to make him out to be the poster child for bad behavior, especially for bad behavior among young black men because he’s a young black man.

Trust me there are lots of young men and women of all different ethnicities who have hair-trigger tempers, and who have run-ins with the law: Justin Bieber, Shia LaBeouf, Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears, Charlie Sheen, I could go on and on.

We’ve seen plenty of examples of bad boys and bad girls to report but what’s different about Chris Brown is of course, the Rihanna thing.
We all remember when it happened and we saw the pictures of Rihanna’s swollen and bruised face. And even with that, many were willing to, if not all out forgive him, at least give him a second chance.

But then there was another incident, and another, and another: the Good Morning America dressing room incident; the Drake entourage altercation; the Frank Ocean altercation; the hit and run in Los Angeles and now this latest arrest in Washington, DC.

And even with all of that, still there are some people willing to give Chris Brown another chance.

Just check out the video of Brown leaving jail last night. People falling all over themselves to see him, take a photo; just to have a glimpse of him and as I watched that video it made me sad.

Sad not for the people screaming his name, they really don’t care about Chris Brown, they don’t care about him; to them he’s just a character that fills some sort of unknown void in their lives. I felt sad for Chris Brown because he seemed to love the attention; you could see him smiling at times.

Heidi Klum Does it Again: Halloween 2013



Heidi Klum's gonna party like it's 2049! After much build-up and a few teasing photos of her in the makeup chair before her annual Halloween bash, the Project Runway host finally revealed her 2013 Halloween costume on the night of Thursday, Oct. 31 -- herself, a few decades into the future, as an old woman.

The 40-year-old German stunner completely transformed herself for the big event, with ultra-realistic age spots on her body and raised varicose veins running up her famously long legs. Gone were her trademark blonde tresses; in their place was a stringy, white wig.

Elaborate, jaw-dropping costumes are the supermodel's trademark. In the past, she has transformed herself into Cleopatra (2012), an ape (2011), an alien robot (2010), a black crow (2009), and a Hindu goddess (2008).

Lil' Kim calls Miley her "Bestie-slash-wifey" + Everyone who dressed as Miley this year



Miley Cyrus has gotten Lil' Kim's big stamp of approval.

For Halloween this year, the "Wrecking Ball" singer paid homage to her favorite rapper by replicating the latter's revealing outfit from the 1999 MTV's Video Music Awards. Rocking a jumpsuit and a periwinkle pasty, Miley nailed the infamous look to a T, and Lil' Kim only has kind words for her good friend.

The rapper took to Twitter last night to tell Miley she was "looking GORGEOUS," and continued her praise today by telling MTV, "How awesome was that! Put it this way, she did me very well. I think she looked gorgeous. I love her; she's one of my besties. She's like my bestie-slash-wifey. You know what's so funny? As soon as she tweeted the picture, she texted me and was like she was like, 'Happy Halloween, babe!' ... I think she did me well."

She also added, "[Miley's] so outrageous. She's fun. She's gorgeous. She's just living her life."

Lil' Kim also says that her purple-pasty look remains one of her favorites to this day.

"The purple pasty with the purple hair is something that kids love, women love and men love—and people all over the world loved," she said. "When people give you that compliment on Halloween, it's huge."

'Watch The Simpson's Online' admin slammed with a 10.5 million dollar lawsuit

After a long-running dispute with Twentieth Century Fox and the MPAA, the alleged former operator of a site dedicated to linking to episodes of The Simpsons now faces punishing legal action. Early October, lawyers from Fox turned up at the man’s home in Canada, taking away all of his electronic equipment and handing over documents detailing a $10.5 million lawsuit.

While anti-piracy actions take place all around the world on a daily basis, it is relatively rare to hear of targeted lawsuits against individual sites. But as the MPAA case against isoHunt closes, another large one is developing in its wake.

The story centers around two recently closed sites. The first is Watch The Simpsons Online, a site that had been around since 2008. The second, Watch Family Guy Online, had been online since 2009.

As their names suggest, the sites gave Internet users the opportunity to watch Fox TV shows The Simpsons and Family Guy online. This was achieved via embedded web players utilizing external video sources.

The sites did fairly well, with the later achieving around seven million visitors and the former around 80 million during their lifetimes. Due to unwanted attention from Fox, both had to employ domain switches to stay online, something which no doubt affected their traffic.

Ted Nugent compares himself to Rosa Parks…again


Outspoken right-wing gun advocate Ted Nugent has not been shy about linking his cause to the civil rights movement of the 1960s.

Althought the ’70s-era rock star has been known to use offensive racial rhetoric in the past, he has repeatedly argued that gun owners are as righteous in their cause as the forces that fought institutionalized bigotry through non-violence.

He recently compared himself to the late iconic black activist Rosa Parks for the second time this year.

“Heavily armed with whatever media bully pulpit I can muster, I exercise my First Amendment rights like my hero Rosa Parks who refused to sit at the back of the bus when that numb-nut law existed. I’m Rosa Parks with a Gibson,” Nugent said in a column on the website WND.

The 64-year-old musician made a similar comparison this past January In an interview with WorldNetDaily.

“There will come a time when the gun owners of America, the law-abiding gun owners of America, will be the Rosa Parks and we will sit down on the front seat of the bus, case closed,” he said.

In just the past year alone, Nugent has claimed that African-Americans have a “mindless tendency to violence,” that Trayvon Martin “got justice,” and that President Obama “isn’t qualified” to drive his tour bus.
