The Good Heart (Film Trailer)

"Brian Cox stars as Jacques, the owner of a gritty New York dive bar that serves as home to a motley assortment of professional drinkers. Jacques is determinedly drinking and smoking himself to death when he meets Lucas (Paul Dano), a homeless young man who has already given up on life. In the hopes of keeping his legacy alive, Jacques deems Lucas is a fitting heir and takes him under his wing, schooling him in the male—centric laws of his alcoholic clubhouse: no new customers, no fraternizing with customers and, absolutely no women."

Let me just say kiddas when I read that Paul Dano was starring in 'The Good Heart, I immediately knew that I was onto something stellar. From the miserable teenager who took a vow of silence until he could accomplish his dream of becoming a test pilot in 'Little Miss Sunshine' to Eli Sunday in Paul Thomas Anderson's There Will Be Blood...I will go as far as to say that Paul's acting abilities not only hold a brighter than sunshine future for him but solid performances show depth that of Daniel Day-Lewis + Sean Penn × Johnny Depp.

The Amazing Self-Portraits of Levi van Veluw

'I picked up the new issue no. 3 of Tokion magazine, and the last page featured an overview of the immensely creative self-portraits of Levi van Veluw. I first came across this fascinating project two years ago, but I feel this unique work deserves attention. You see, for a few years, this young Dutch artist has been creating self-portraits that transform him into the art he is creating. He is the model, the sculptor, and the photographer.'Homotography

New Doritos Commercial

Here's thee steamiest new flavor of Doritos (Spicy Spaghetti in case you were actually wondering what flavor haha ). What strikes me most hilarious about this commerial, is it sounds more like a nostalgic reminder of a girlfriend telling me about their date night with a boy and what usually transpires inevitably...

Christina Aguilera Has Announced There Will Be Big News Come Tuesday!!!!

Christina Aguilera is expected to announce some very huge news in three days come Tuesday, March 23.

There’s a countdown to the big news on her official website,

The new artwork displayed on her placeholder site is the new direction for Christina’s new album entitled 'Bionic'! Its a little mechanical and a whole lot Clockwork Orange inspired. Remember Christina dressed up as Clockwork’s Alex for her 28th birthday last year???

If you haven't already, check out 'Christina Aguilera's Rumored Promo Video For Upcoming Album'.

'Lift Me Up' is a new track off thee Bionic album. Every time the violins kick in to what eventually leads up to the chorus, somehow it always makes me feel like some sort of latern on some murky lake somewhere...

Tasteless, Nay Or Yay?

This Topshop dress you see on the left is not by any standards a rip off of Alexander McQueen’s, but it is very clear that the people at Topshop were inspired just as much as the next person in the fashion world from McQueen's “Plato’s Atlantis” collection.

So they made a dress replicating the one mister McQueen sent down his SS10 runway on Amanda Laine’s back.

You can “channel your Space Age supermodel in the baroque print dress,” but is this period print not nearly as offensive as the fact that Topshop still went full steam ahead with manufacturing after Alexander McQueen’s passing??? What do you think Kiddas????

Here's a video of Alexander McQueen's final collection, in case you missed last weeks post... 'Alexander-Mcqueens-Final-AW10 Collection'

Jennifer Lopez, A Woman Overboard! UH-OH, I Dont Know...

Apparently Jennifer Lopez is in talks to star in a remake of the 1987 classic (at least in my eyes a classic) Overboard!

The original film, which starred Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn, whom I must say now, was an ultimate favorite comedic actor of mine while growing up as a little boy.

Told the story of a spoiled woman who falls off her yacht and is taken to the hospital by a “morally challenged” carpenter. When the woman wakes up with amnesia, the carpenter convinces her that she is his wife so that he can have a free housekeeper for his four sons.

Check out a short but funny clip from thee original Overboard film.
