After weeks of rumor and hearsay, Led Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones has all but confirmed the band will soon hit the road again. Unfortunately, the reunion this time won't include Robert Plant.
Why don't they just not go on tour then? Geez.

Shoot, it's only a few days until Halloween and you don't have a costume yet! Relax — you're in the same boat as many a costume designer for a science fiction movie or TV series. Except that instead having to create a whole group of identical alien costumes for a bunch of extras by Friday, you only have to create one cool-looking costume for yourself. We talked to few actual costume designers, including Joss Whedon's favorite costumer, and came up with some cool ideas for costumes you can throw together in the next couple of days.
If you ask me, they're more like "meh" costumes, but whatever. I'd totally dress as Irina Spalko from Indy 4. Maybe I could even lug along a fake script labeled "Crappy Indiana Jones 4 Script". Oh, I know, it could be chained to my wrist! And I'd have to have my mouth duct-taped shut or something to symbolize Cate Blanchett's acting talent being, uh...not-so-good. Wait, this is starting to sound like some kind of BDSM fantasy....okay, nix the duct tape.
*edit - Someone on another blog suggested dressing up as characters from Twilight because all you'd have to do is wear the most plain, boring clothes possible and then fall down a lot and try to get hit by any cars that come your way. I could go for that, especially if I could find some guy willing to be completely coated in white makeup and a ton of glitter while wearing vampire fangs and looking emo. Yes, the Twilight series sounds more wonderful all the time, doesn't it?
I think I know just the guy.

Hey, grandchildren, do you still follow that cape man you liked so much? That... Batman character? Oh, good, because Christopher Nolan has finally spoken on if he's doing a third Batman movie! His answer: maybe.
You know, I was actually thinking that if Bryan Singer were to direct a Batman movie, it might not be half bad. After all, X2 is considered one of the best movie sequels ever made. It would still need to have a good story, though.
Although, if Brett Ratner or Sam Raimi were to get their hands on the production...woe to the Batman producers. Woe. Woe!!!

Latest: The F.B.I. in Chicago, Illinois has confirmed the young boy found dead in the city on Monday was Jennifer Hudson's seven-year-old nephew Julian King.
The alert was called off on Monday after the body of a young African-American child was discovered inside a 1994 white Chevy Suburban car in west Chicago - owned by Jason Hudson.
The gruesome find was just a few miles from where Julia's estranged husband, William Balfour, was arrested by police on Friday, according to TMZ.com. He is currently being quizzed by cops over the slayings, and authorities have described him as "a person of interest".
I was afraid of this. I hope they throw the book at that guy and lock him up for life. I have no sympathy for people who kill their own kids.

The mother and brother of Oscar-winning Dreamgirls actress Jennifer Hudson were reportedly found dead at the home of Hudson's mother in the South Side neighborhood of Chicago, according to initial reports.
Wow, that really sucks, I feel bad for Jennifer Hudson...the article states that the police are looking for two suspects. What a horrible loss for Jennifer...

Two Dutch teenagers were convicted of virtually roughing up a classmate in the multiplayer online game RuneScape and stealing some virtual goods from him.
In this video, Robert Pattinson (of Harry Potter and Twilight movie fame) arrived in Mexico and was immediately swarmed by hordes of Mexican girls, one of whom tries to put a sombrero on his head. I'd suggest some form of terrible punishment for him...but I think his newfound fame is fame is punishment enough.

View my totally awesome (epic) video, full of epic footage, epic pictures and totally epic MUSIC. After watching this video, you too will want to join the SDSU football team so you can flex your muscles and tackle guys on the field. Also so you can listen to the Pride's epic playing of music during the game.
this video would have been more epic if I could have used a sound clip from the Backstreet Boys dubbed in Spanish video

The Backstreet Boys' "Backstreet's Back Allright" video, dubbed in Spanish. You have to watch this, for real. It's so terrible it's hilarious.
Also, they declared the Britney Spears trial a mistrial. I really hope they don't ask for another trial. What a waste of time.

The jury members in Britney Spears' ongoing driving license trial have been told to keep deliberating after telling a Van Nuys, California court judge they're deadlocked over whether the singer should be handed a criminal record.
Why are they even prosecuting her for this? Aren't there better things the California courts could be doing, like going after the real criminals?

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' two year old daughter Suri has her own dressing room at the New York theatre where the actress is making her Broadway debut.
Holmes is combining her run in Arthur Miller's All My Sons with her role as a mum, and has kitted out a room backstage at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre, so little Suri is never bored.
"We have a dressing room that is transformed into a playroom. It has a little piano."
You know, it doesn't even really bother me that Suri has her own playroom at the Broadway theater or whatever. I mean, all little girls should have their own playroom. I myself had a playroom when I was a little girl...well, if the huge empty basement counted as a playroom. I've seen many playrooms at churches, schools, daycares, wherever. Can you tell what really annoyed me about this article about Suri's playroom?

Madonna and Guy Ritchie have confirmed they are divorcing after eight years of marriage.
The singer has been under intense media scrutiny amid rumours she indulged in an affair with New York baseball star Alex 'A-Rod' Rodriguez.
Madonna and Rodriguez were alleged to have had an "affair of the heart", according to his estranged wife, Cynthia. They divorced last month.
Ten bucks says adopting the kid was what did them in. Well, in addition to the whole affair-with-A-Rod thing. That, or the backlash from Swept Away finally got to them.

TSA screener ripped off hundreds of thousands of dollars' worth of electronics from passengers, TSA didn't notice
MadScott sez, "TSA Screener Pythias Brown walked off with hundreds of thousands of dollars of passengers' belongings without ever being observed by the TSA, selling the items on Ebay (apparently he was good about customer service).
His greed eventually came back to haunt him, when CNN found one of their cameras listed on Ebay. With a little help from the local police department and the USPS, Brown was apprehended.
Yet more reasons why I always put valuables in my carry-on. Goons like this are what gives TSA a bad name. Not that they had a good name in the first place...

It costs me exactly $5711 in subscription costs per year with 36 accounts on the 6 month pay schedule. Not bad considering I'm looking at it like it's a hobby and there are more expensive hobbies out there than World of Warcraft.
When Wrath of the Lich King is released, I plan to be at the store when it opens and will purchase 36 copies of it. With tax, it should be about $1500 for all of them. Then the shaman are on their way to level 80 along with the priest, druid and mage.
olol this guy must live in his basement and have no life amirite?
Really though, not even I would pay $6k to play a game...there are so many better things I could spend my money on...or even better, save it for the upcoming credit crisis!

The Dark Knight screenwriter David Goyer is baffled by reports he's working on a second sequel to 2005's Batman Begins - because he hasn't even discussed the possibility with director Christopher Nolan.
According to the article, Christopher Nolan is on vacation. Well, I hope he gets done with his vacation soon, because the world is clamoring for another Batman movie. How can you not make a sequel to the Dark Knight?! Batman isn't a villain and Gotham shouldn't see him as one. They at least need to make another movie to fix that mess. Come on now.
(Although, if Christopher Nolan doesn't come back, I am immediately opposed to making another movie. History has already shown the Batman franchise going to pot the moment the good director steps away from the franchise.)

Long story short, after Idiot Twihard Mom realized how many bills she was going to have to pay, she relented and let the adoptive parents have the kid. They promptly renamed her Lily Anne. I am incredibly relieved.
Also, the new Twilight trailer came out today. I'm not going to bother to link to it, but I did watch it for the lulz. I wasn't disappointed - as soon as I saw the van I screamed out 'DEATH VAN!'. For those of you who think I might be convinced to see this movie, even for the lulz, I won't go. So don't even try.

But about a week or so ago I got one that made my brain literally cease all function...*drum roll please* Renesmee Bella was this little girl's new first name.
This particular name had the first letter S. Which I automatically decided stood for "sucks"...because really...it was all I could do to help keep my sanity. But no, this poor child's name was Renesmee Bella STEPHENIE....and that's when I think I blacked out for a little bit.
According to the rest of the post, the baby's father's name is Edward (and the only reason the mother hooked up with him), and the dumbass mother (who is 15) was originally going to give the kid up for adoption until she read Breaking Dawn and thought having a kid, at her age, and screwing over the adoptive parents (who were paying all her medical bills) was a good idea. I am a little leery as to whether this story is actually true, because it seems too crazy to be true. But if it is real...who wants to help hold Stephenie Meyer down while I go at her with a baseball bat? Because really. It's good that kids are reading books and everything, but I just think there are better books they could be reading, for heaven's sake.
Actually, after this, I think that girl's probably going to have to go read a book on finance so she knows how to pay back allllllll those bills the adoptive parents are probably going to stick her with.
Today we made a PSA about voting. I didn't have as many problems with Final Cut as I did before - I must be getting better. I was disappointed to hear we can't just use whatever music we want in the videos we make, though, because of the copyright issues. I had a lot of music I wanted to use in my other video assignment. Hopefully the website he gave us will have some good stuff....
Also, I just noticed I did the same little "shoulder shrug" three times in the clip I'm in. More proof that I am in fact a terrible actress.

Deleon, 29, is a former child actor who allegedly boasted that he was a star on the "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" but apparently only had a small part in one episode.
Murphy said Deleon and his former wife, Jennifer Henderson, were a young couple saddled in debt and living in a converted garage, and had a bank account with only $2,619 two days before Deleon took the test cruise.
Looks like he should have worked more on his acting career and less on his life of crime.

I really hope they come up with a better idea for the next one. I mean, Indy 4 was okay, but....meh. I'm hoping they come up with a better MacGuffin this time. Maybe they could do something like "Indiana Jones and the Search for the Good Indiana Jones Movie Script". I'm sure that would be a hit.

It took me longer than I thought it would to make this, because I was really tired and kept getting behind the instructions, and had no idea what I was doing. Fortunately I managed to figure things out in a mostly satisfactory way...
