"The Life And Times Of Prophecy"
The Statue of Liberty stamp issued by the U.S. Postal Service turns out to be slightly flawed… It’s not an image of the actual Statue of Liberty in New York, but rather of the Statue of Liberty replica, from the “New York New York” Casino Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The photograph was apparently chosen from a photography service, and even though the statue featured is not the real thing, Roy Betts, spokesperson for the USPS said they love the stamp’s design and would have chosen that photograph anyway (likely excuse). They are now looking to make sure the same mistake doesn’t happen in the future.
I guess Lady Liberty just got booted in a popularity contest by her newer, younger, better replica… Lady Luck
Cisco made the announcement this week that they would be discontinuing their once popular line of “Flip” video cameras, the company they purchased in 2009 for $590 Million dollars. The cut will cost a total of 550 jobs.
Flip cameras gained popularity in today’s voyeur age where ease of use and accessibility for camera use, as well as speed in upload has become a priority. Unfortunately, it is these same characteristics that its consumers desired that led to its demise, as iPhone applications and video cameras built into phones have taken over the market.
Cameras are only good if you have them when you need them, and rather than carrying unnecessary equipment, incorporating HD video cameras into phones, along with apps that can edit and upload to YouTube straight from the cell phone, has caused the market to see some serious damage to their pocketbooks.
Cell phone cameras are also hurting the business of small pocket digital cameras, as higher quality cell phone cameras are now becoming a priority in cell phone design.
If the mp3 taught the CD anything… the best product is one you don’t have to carry with you, and cameras and video cameras in a cell phone which is most people’s daily required item, accomplished just that
Audrina Patridge showed up to last night’s OK! US Mag party, in part with Vh1 and Bongo at the Lexington Social House in Hollywood.. and Audrina brought her entire village peeps, including her crazy tipsy a$$ momma causin mad drama on the red carpet.
The OK! party turned out to be more of a dud than expected, but I would definitely have to say the one who really kept the party goin, was of course… Audrina’s momma Lynn Patridge. As you may know by now, Audrina has her own reality show that will be on Vh1 very soon, and of course her entire family will be featured on the show, which is why they’ve been making red carpet rounds with her lately. So Audrina was interviewed and said the best member of her family for the show is her mom. She said just give her a glass of wine, and let the cameras roll and it’s non-stop laughs.
I would definitely have to agree, but it seems to me like she had more than just one glass of wine.
Let’s hope not. Cause this definitely never happened to me before tonight !!
Ya know, lately I’ve tried to slow down on my late night drive-thru runs, knowing it can’t be healthy for you.
But of course, I always ignore my warnings for self-preservation, and decided to go for it anyway. And I don’t know what’s worse… not getting the meal i was hoping for, or knowing i will never be able to look at those meals the same way ever again.
What makes that even more f@nked up, is the parking lot was completely empty, which means no employees either. So everyone was like “Let’s get the eff outta here before the fumes get to us!!”… Then, let’s not mention the irony in them tryin to pub their new Turkey Burgers… like it’s the healthy alternative to cockroach !!
The sad part is, they were required to let their customers know what was up, with the full on Carl’s Jr. logo to show it was legit,like a company letter, in order to follow their required standards with informing the public. The damn star still even got a smile in his face, like sh!t’s still cool… IT AINT COOL FOOL !! If i was the manager of that Carl’s, I’d make the star have a sad face, with tears cryin and sh!t, talking like “I let my people down!”
For now, unless I get an overwhelming amount of comments demanding I do otherwise, I will keep the location of this particular Carl’s Jr. under wraps for now. But at least I know not to visit there anytime soon.
But to the defense of fast food restaurants, restaurants and any food service establishment… It is impossible to serve food for an extended period of time, without having something like a fumigation becoming a necessary part of operations. There is just no way around preventing the infestation of pests 100%. It is just a natural occurrence when it comes to large amounts of food stored in one place at all times.
Have you had any fast food horror stories you’d like to share? If so.. throw it down below

I could get really deep into this, but I won’t. I do want to live a little longer
NBA Comissioner David Stern fined Kobe Bryant $100,000 for what he said were “offensive and inexcusable” comments made during last night’s home game against the San Antonio Spurs. Kobe used an expletive and an anti-gay slur against a referee after giving the Lakers star a technical foul.
Kobe apologized publicly today stating that his use of the word were used in the heat of the moment of the game, and do not reflect the way he feels about the gay and lesbian community. Kobe also had a phone conversation with Joe Solomonese, President of the Human Rights Campaign, apologizing for his actions.
Solomonese gave a statement that he had a very sincere conversation with Kobe, and they applaud his ability for Kobe to take responsibility for his actions. Solomonese also applauded Comissioner Sterns decision to fine Kobe and to issue the proper statement to the world for Kobe’s actions at a time when “bullying” is also at an all time high around our country, and our world.
Comissioner Stern said in a statement Wednesday:
“Kobe Bryant’s comment during last night’s game was offensive and inexcusable. While I’m fully aware that basketball is an emotional game, such a distasteful term should never be tolerated. Accordingly, I have fined Kobe $100,000. Kobe and everyone associated with the NBA know that insensitive or derogatory comments are not acceptable and have no place in our game or society.”
$100K is a drop in the bucket for Kobe, so while this may be harmful towards his image for now, if he really wanted to punish him, he should’ve done something like a 3 week suspension without pay, especially now while teams are still fighting for their playoff standings.
But guess what, I’m from LA so I probably wouldn’t want that !
What I’ve never understood, is how much profanity occurs on an NBA court during any given game. You would think they would all know by now that there’s damn near 40 video cameras floatin’ around these stadiums at all times, and peeps with microphones and everything. Come on now, you know you hear it on tv all the time, when they’re playin and yell out things like “shi!t!” or “m@ther#ucker”. And we always laugh.
Somebody aint laughin no more

Barry Bonds was found guilty of Obstruction of Justice today in a San Francisco courtroom, but a mistrial was declared one all three counts of perjury. Jurors were unable to agree as to whether or not Bonds knowingly lied when declaring if someone other than a doctor ever injected him. The basis of this was if Barry Bonds knowingly had steroids administered to him.
Juror testimonies showed there were 11 people that believed Bonds childhood friend that she had witnessed Greg Anderson, Bonds’s personal trainer, injecting the hitter who now many never see the Hall of Fame.
Surprisingly, Bonds defense team rested their case last week without any eyewitness testimony or closing arguments. To think that he lost 1 out of 4 counts makes you wonder what the outcome might have been had his team at least given it a good faith effort.
Should’ve tried Barry. But hey, to his defense, steroids is rampant in professional sports. And many men are making millions of dollars and being honored for their feats. And that’s not to defend the action, but that’s to tell people to stop acting surprised.
But to the actual defense of Bonds and his character, I used to hear all sorts of things about him being a jerk. And I can honestly say, everytime I have met him, or done something with him in the streets, he’s always been cool as a mofo, and as you see, he even took time to take a pic with one of my homeys, Chris Hall of E! Entertainment.

It’s starting to become a time honored tradition. Ben & Jerry’s is doing their annual “Free Cone Day”, where all Ben & Jerry’s locations from coast to coast are giving away a free ice cream cone from 12p-8p (local time). Can you believe the first free cone day was May 5, 1979? That’s a bomb gift for Cinco De Mayo !!
I’d like a scoop of Cherry Garcia please!!
Just be sure to have some free time on your hands. Free Ice Cream cones aren’t necessarily free at all. You might end up waiting an hour or two.
And shee-ite, even at minimum wage, that “free” cone technically just cost you damn near $20 dollaz
It’s official. Lindsay’s career was back on track in the realest way, and if you don’t agree, you’ll get your fu*kin heads cut off !!
Just moments ago, the entire Gotti family, John Travolta and Lindsay Lohan held a press conference at the Sheraton New York Hotel and Towers to announce the finalization of the cast for “Gotti: Three Generations”. Man, this is turning out to be the most highlyanticipated film based on the casting alone!!
Victoria Gotti and Lindsay posed together looking like they could be the next set of clones on the block. And it’s clear Victoria chose Lindsay because that’s how she wants the younger version of herself to be remembered. I would say the girls made a smart move though, gettin’ their hair did the same way just to show how right they are.
And John and John, Gotti and Travolta, were also celebrating the announcement, along with John’s 3 sons, Frank, John Jr. And Carmine.. ya know, the original young Gotti Boys that taught a young Pauly D how to do his hair after watching doomed episodes of “Growing Up Gotti”
Good to see Lindsay bounce back. Maybe the whole necklace thing was just her doing research on what it’s like to be the daughter of a crime family.
The already devastated nation of Japan was hit by not one, but two more major aftershocks yesterday, both measuring 6.3 on the Richter scale. And as if that wasn’t enough for Japan to have to endure in a day, the government raised the level of their looming Nuclear crisis to equal that of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster, considered the worst in history. With all that is yet to come, the disaster which resulted from damage to the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant as a result of the March 11th 9.0 Earthquake and subsequent Tsunami, will easily be the worst Nuclear disaster in World History. What makes matters worse, is the government has expanded its restricted area, and the tap water, food, soil, air and seawater continues to be contaminated.
World financial markets have already begun to take a beating this morning as well on the recent news, with Japan’s stock market droppping the most since the original quake happened just a month ago.
