Facebook Plans to turn into Myspace. Adding Video Adverts to YOUR Timeline in 2013#hellno #FAIL

Ah Facebook. It’s the worlds worst catch 22.

Your effed if you don’t have it; People now use it for celebs, deals, contests, promotion and establishing social existence. Meeting others in an overpopulated world. Keeping tabs on your SO (significant other). Staying in touch long distance. Meeting new business contacts.

Your are effed if you do have it; Unmanageable, trite, childish, your mom’s on it, time waster. Relationship killer and an easy way to get fired. Fake accounts, spam bots and now, video ads in your timeline in 2013.

What the hell Zuckerberg? Yes it’s true. According to our lovely geeks at Wired.com;

Facebook plans to unveil 15-second video ads by April within both mobile and desktop news feeds, several advertising executives tell Ad Age. The ads will start playing automatically, according to two of the executives, and Facebook has reportedly not decided whether to mute audio from the ads.

Ad Age reports that the commercials will even expand beyond the middle web page section that normally contains the news feed, taking over the left and right rails of the page as well.

Facebook declined to comment.

Thank you Mark Zuckerberg for continually turning this into Friendster/Myspace. Soon everyone will be canceling accounts and officially ‘quitting this shit’. Including me. Facebook’s site is starting to look like AOL in the 90s. Oh the emoticons, nice touch. That killed it.

In the meantime we suffer well. What do you think of recent Facebook changes?

To this day I will NEVER EVER understand why people do this.

A terrible shooting has occurred in Newton, CT leaving over 20 fatalities. 18 children and 6 adults shot at the school. Two were pronounced dead at hospital. The gunman is Adam Lanza, 20, says Conn. State Police spokesman Paul Vance.

Adam Lanza, 20, shot his mother Nancy Lanza dead at their home. He then drove to the school. Lanza’s mother was a teacher at Sandy Hook School and he “had a dispute with her”  which is why he targeted her Kindergarten class. Adam Lanza is described by neighbors as ‘odd’ and thought to be mentally ill, explaining his skewed reasoning.

Lanza was found dead inside the school from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, an official told the AP.

This horrific incident was addressed by President Obama who was very upset, and cried during his statement.

We’ve endured too many of these tragedies in the past few years.  And each time I learn the news I react not as a President, but as anybody else would — as a parent.  And that was especially true today.  I know there’s not a parent in America who doesn’t feel the same overwhelming grief that I do.

The majority of those who died today were children — beautiful little kids between the ages of 5 and 10 years old.  They had their entire lives ahead of them — birthdays, graduations, weddings, kids of their own.  Among the fallen were also teachers — men and women who devoted their lives to helping our children fulfill their dreams.

So our hearts are broken today

I am horrified this behavior has ever occurred and continues to occur. My heart goes out to every soul out there who has been effected by this.

Anne Hathaway on her Commando Style Slip (#withpictures),”I was devastated”.

anne-hathaway tomforddress

Anne Hathaway made a rather profound statement on the red carpet yesterday by exposing her well-trimmed vag to thousands of reporters and bloggers. For that we thank her.

After her indecent exposure Anne did what any poon revealing princess would do, she freaked out. Then she issued a press release to show remorse. (Britney are you taking notes?)

According to NYDailyNews.com she was overheard Tuesday at a luncheon at the Four Seasons;

“I was getting out of the car and my dress was so tight that I didn’t realize it until I saw all the photographers’ flashes,” she told Vanity Fair writer Ingrid Sischy. “It was devastating. They saw everything. I might as well have lifted up my skirt for them.

Actually Anne you did lift up your skirt. THAT was the problem. I hope you learned the problem was….NOT wearing panties.

These days Anne’s image is everything as she tackles being a ‘serious actress’. Hopefully she won’t take this snafu too badly and will move on unscathed. After all this mess, she really did wear a fabulous outfit. Making that dress look good is not easy, but she pulled it off in spades.

I think Anne Hathaway is safe as long as she doesn’t start pulling wigs out of her closet.

Chris Brown Get’s Signed to Wilhelmina Models? #badjoke

Controversial, thug, violent, actor, producer, chart topper, rapper, singer.

Love him or hate him Chris Brown has captured our attention for years. His mommy calls him an ‘Angel’ and the bloggers call him the devil.

Despite antics like busting a window and ‘Good Morning’ and Rhianna’s face, Chris Browns public has stuck by him. His career is not only powerful but so is his presence. Now Chris Brown has managed to top it all off by becoming a fashion/modeling icon. Wilhelmina Models, based out of NYC, has signed Chris Brown.

What the what?!! Admittedly the man has great body art and works out, but I will not be blinded by his pretty pectoral muscles. His actions over the years make him straight thug.

So why him and why his face? According to WWD;

Taylor Hendrich, director of Wilhelmina’s men’s division, told WWD, “Chris Brown is a… multifaceted artist with a unique take on style, and we are excited to translate and extend his brand.”

Translated from Marketing/PR speak that means, he is worth a lot of money.

I can see that. He has also emerged as quite a brand leader and is ‘sort of’ cleaning up his act. The 2009 incidence with Rhianna is in the past and Chiris Brown has been acting and Producing since 2001. With gold records and an entertainment career, this is the right move fiscally to build a small empire. ( I can hear Kanye having a fish sticks fit over this as we speak.)

I hope Wilhelmina knows what they are doing. They need to bring out the suave in CB and make him shine. If anyone can make Chris Brown into a gentlemen, Wilhelmina models can.

How do you feel about Chris Brown’s move into modeling/fashion? Is it right for him? Or should he stay on the music path?

Is Your Prius a POS? 2.77 Million Toyota Vehicles RECALLED

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How many times have I yelled at Prius drivers in West Hollywood for driving like asses, parking in two spots and making a left turn from the far right lane? Countless. How happy am I that I may have had good reason to be screaming in my AUDI? Never Ending Joy doesn’t cover it.

Toyota, Japan’s number one auto maker, has recalled 2.77 Million of their Toyota Corolla & Prius model’s due to fault’ int the steering and water-pump systems.

Bloomberg Business Week spoke with a Representative in Japan who told them;

The Prius hybrid and Corolla compact sedans are among the 14 models subject to inspection and repair, Naoto Fuse, a spokesman for the Toyota City, Japan-based company, said by phone today. The carmaker will recall 1.52 million vehicles in Japan and 1.25 million vehicles overseas, including 670,000 Prius vehicles in the U.S.

That’s a lot of Prius and Corolla’s being pulled off the road. Time to get shopping for a new car commuters. Turns out your status symbol/commuter car isn’t as reliable as you thought.

Don’t cry West Hollywood. There are tons of hybrids out there. You just never looked. Or you could get savvy and take public transport (no, not that!). But….nobody walks in LA.

What will you do if they have to recall your car?

In the meantime enjoy this song inspired by the recall.

American Apparel Get’s Even More Tasteless with ‘SandySale’

American Apparel may be made in the good ole USA but that is about all they have going for them. Between their tasteless ‘teen porn’ advertisements and their constant lawsuits for sweatshop standards they are asking for a smack down.

While over 7 million suffer on the East Coast without power, and some without clean water American Apparel decide to start a ‘Sandy Sale’.

According to ABCNEWS;

Late Monday evening, American Apparel offered a “Sandy Sale” to customers who reside in states that were affected by the hurricane, including Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Maryland.

Broadcast on the website was a message reading, “In case you’re bored during the storm, 20 percent off everything for the next 36 hours.”

Wow, Tasteless much.

People across the US (including myself) are calling, emailing, texting our relatives and friends, desperate for news of their safety. There was a fire that claimed 80 homes in Queens and storm that killed 16-18 people in NYC alone. And they use hurricane Sandy for an advertising campaign?

Good job American Apparel. I don’t think anyone back East is bored enough to buy your clothing. Chalk this up to another case of bad taste.

If you want to really help, there are funds being set up to help flood victims. Donate here.

News of the Weird; NYPD Officer Planned to Kidnap, Kill & EAT over 100 Women.

We’ve all been keeping up with the endless crazy so-called cannibalism cases. To this day I shudder when I think what happened to the crazy who went off the deep end with bath salts. Especially since I am a big fan of using them.

This case however is brought to you by the local NYPD law enforcement. In fact, this is about a very disturbed officer of the law who planned on kidnapping, raping, torturing, cooking and eating women. His emails were to others were bizarre and sickening stating things like;

  • “[My oven] is big enough to fit one of these girls if I folded their legs”
  • “I was thinking of tying her body onto some kind of apparatus&cook her over a low heat, keep her alive as long as possible.”

He had compiled photos’ addresses on over 100 women. He also offered to help others who wanted a kidnapped woman for $5000 and emailed one undercover operative saying;

“$5,000 and she’s all yours… she will be stuffed into a large piece of luggage and wheeled out to my van.”

It’s moments like this I am REALLY GLAD we have law enforcement. Supposedly he illegally hacked a federal database to get all of the information he compiled.

Hacker, cannibalistic, NYPD cop. What is the US coming to? And I thought bath salts and politic’s were creepy. Go figure he was a quiet reclusive type according to his neighbors.  Next time your neighbors are making too much noise, be thankful. At least you know what they are up to.

Katy Perry Rocks the Obama Vote Fashionably (Pic/Video)

Katy Perry is a constant surprise. Whether she decides to dress up in cupcakes dresses with a blue wig, or boho chic with her new hunny John Mayer she keeps us guessing. This time she is rocking the vote, hardcore.
Katy rocked her vote last night in Nevada to a crowd of 13,000 voters wearing a sexy ballot dress at a Obama at rally last night.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Katy clearly marked her dress as a vote for Obama/Biden and urged the crowd to vote early. Perry even threatened to ‘come and get you’ to the crowd if they didn’t vote. Damn Katy, careful how you rock that vote. We don’t need a ghetto fight. Romany already got a smack down in the last Presidential debate.

President Obama came out after the Perry and said he was ‘so grateful for her unbelievable performance’.

Check out the video here from Telegraph.co.uk;

 

Obama is currently on a 48 hour tour across the US addressing the swing states and trying to get the ‘last minute’ voters to key into his election ticket. With Perry on his side rocking the fashionable vote, he may just have an edge over Mitt-ens.

Are you registered to vote? Get out there and ROCK YOUR VOTE! Every vote counts and we need you to speak up and be heard.

15 Minutes of AWESOME, brought to you by the Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard

Julia Gillard needs to come to the US and bring her pocket full of whoop ass.

Recently the Aussie Prime Minister had enough of Tony Abbott’s EXTREMELY misogynistic comment’s and sexual harassment of a gay cabinet member via text’s.

Julia gave a 15 minute passionate and some what scathing speech to the House of Representative’s. This made everyone pay attention except Abbott who think’s he’s special.

At the lovely Jezebel.com, they broke down some of the loveliest quotes from the Prime Minister. Here’s a few gem’s;

I will not be lectured about sexism and misogyny by this man, I will not. Not now, not ever. What i won’t stand for, what I will never stand for is the leader of the opposition peddling a double standard, a standard he has not set for members of his own front bench.

If he wants to know what misogyny looks like in modern Australia he doesn’t need a motion in the house of Representatives, he needs a mirror.

I was very offended personally the Leader of the Opposition said abortion is the easy way out.

I was offended by the sexism, by the misogyny of the Leader of the Opposition cat calling across this table at me as I sit here as prime minister [saying], ‘If the prime minister wants to make an honest woman of herself…’ something that would never have been said to any man sitting in this chair.

I was offended when he stood next to a sign that described me as a ‘man’s bitch.’

He has said, ‘If it’s true that men have more power, generally speaking, than women, is that a bad thing?’ [and] ‘What if men, by physiology or temperament, are more adapted to exercise authority or to issue command?’

He can apologise for standing next to signs [about me] saying, ‘Ditch the Witch.’

Now he is looking at his watch [which Abbott was] because apparently a woman’s spoken too long.

Here is the video and the AMAZING women right’s speech I cannot stop smiling at. GO JULIA!! (compliments of ABCNews on Youtube)

The Ginger’s have it. What can I say, you do NOT want to invoke redhead rage.

It Doesn’t Take a Genius: iPhone vs. Samsung S3 Android, a Snappy Comeback/Slap in the Face

Recently our trusty Android’s from Samsung took a rather nasty legal hit (read HERE; http://phandroid.com/2012/08/24/breaking-verdict-reached-in-apple-v-samsung-patent-trial/) by the makers of iPhone in the legal department. Although they may have to pay 1.049 billion in damages, something tells me Samsung will make it back quickly with this advertisement;

Ouch! Apple ‘Geniuses’ beware. Droid has it out for you. Besides, the full specs on the S3 in that ad make iPhone look second par. And it is. Unknown to many users of the tech trendy iPhone, Droid’s are the number phone in the good ol USA.

As far as advertising, I’m wondering how iPhone will strike back. I’m sure Siri is plotting revenge as we speak.

What do you use?

Lana Del Rey Graces GQ UK…..Nude.

Nerd News Flash! Yahoo Hires New CMO, Genius Marissa Mayer….While Other CMO is on Vacation!!

I have seen some shifty moves in business. I have seen some of the nastiest business cat fights go down. We all know no one has a safe job in this economy. You may get fired the dy you get fired. It’s a low move but possible.This however takes the cake.

We shall call this move,’Business 101: Fuckery’.

Current CMO of Yahoo, Mollie Spillman, was of vacationing at the beach. She was trying to unwind from working at one of the largest internet companies in the country. While she took a moment away from the office to regain her humanity, she was replaced by Marissa Mayer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Poor Mollie found out 10 minutes before the news was announced to the entire company. Ouch.

A source close to the situation tells us Mayer informed the vacationing Spillman of the news only ten minutes before it broke.

“She was blindsided,” said this source. Mayer and Spillman have worked closely together in the weeks since she became CEO, and the fact that Mayer was looking for her replacement never came up.

I guess there really is no rest for the weary.
