Was looking at some gretsch drums from musicians friend the other day trying to find the right snare drum for me. Then I had a look at the complete drum sets from Gretsch and was tempted to just go a head and get the whole thing. These sets are pretty nice and probably the exact style I am going to be interested in. Then my internet decided to go out so I couldn’t get any more info and had to wait until today to look a bit harder at the sets. Not bad,. Not bad, at all.
Here’s one that is a bit odd. This one is from a guy that was actually in defense of MJ at one point, but now that he is dead he claims it was allt he other way. Interesting that I have never heard of a claim against an estate for something like this either.
Choreographer Wade Robson, who testified in the pop icon’s defense during his 2005 trial on child molestation charges, has now filed a claim against Jackson’s estate, alleging that he in fact was abused by the late star. Looking for a payoff and a nice box cao cigars later is my guess.
Robson’s court filing is sealed, but E! News has obtained documents confirming that a petition to make a late claim against the estate, as well as certificates of merit from mental health professionals and other supporting paperwork were filed on May 1.
“Wade used to tell me that Michael would ask to have baths with him,” a close friend of Robson’s exclusively tells E! News. “It was weird…He didn’t seem to question it, neither would we, it was just what he would say. It sounded strange, but we never delved further.”
Robson “never seemed ashamed of it or anything,” the insider adds. “I have no idea how he was feeling inside, but he would be quite matter of fact about it.”
Well, well. We see stories like this in the news all the time from our favorite shows such as Datline Discovery, Real Crime UK, and all our other real crime shows that must take up at least 30% of all television programming now. Rarely is there one that is about an actual “celebrity”. This one won’t make it that far, however. as the murder-for-hire plot was apparently thwarted before it could be completed.
As I Lay Dying singer Tim Lambesis was arrested Tuesday (May 7) after allegedly soliciting an undercover police officer to have his estranged wife killed. Guess this guy wasn’t real familiar with how this kind of thing works eh? Don’t you usually ask some guy you know who needs drug money, or wants to look tough do it for $300? Then go to the bar with something from http://www.yogadirect.co.uk and pretend you have an alibi?
According to Reuters, the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department learned that Lambesis sought an accomplice to kill his wife, and he was taken into custody in Oceanside, California, after reaching out to the detective.
“The information came to us late last week,” San Diego County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Jan Caldwell told Reuters. “We acted quickly on it. I believe that we averted a great tragedy.”
Lambesis has said he considers himself to be a Christian and acknowledges that he finds inspiration for lyrical content from biblical texts. He is incredibly prolific, having released eight albums with As I Lay Dying between 2001 and 2012, as well as five releases via his solo side project Austrian Death Machine, where he sings and performs on all instruments. He also produced 11 albums for other artists and is part owner of Lambesis Studios.
I have to say that I am actually looking forward to this adaption of the great Superman. Looking as if it will be a tad darker than the old Christopher Reeve Superman movies and trying to get closer to how the Batman series has gone it looks solid. Especially after the cheeseball Smallville adaption. I was kind of happy that the dude that played him on Smallville wasn’t given the role. I wouldn’t be able to get his extreme dorkiness out of my head to watch it. Plus he always whined about wearing the actual Superman outfit like the “tights” were not cool to him. So we had to watch as the show wasted 10 season waiting for Superman to actually become Superman in silly tease after tease. The payoff was not that great. Aqua Man, whoever played him too was the worst actor I have ever seen.
So all the guys that wear the tungsten masonic rings are probably very interested in the Superman universe about how he destroys their walls with such ease! I JUST BUILT THAT! D:<
Let’s step back and realize first that this episode was well BEFORE anything at the Boston Marathon even happened. This episode had already been aired before the event so it wasn’t making fun of the tragedy in any way. Since the tragedy happened, however they have decided to remove the epsiode fromt eh website and to stop showing it at all. I ca’t disagree with this really, but I think people should at least not accuse them of doing this at the expense of those affected.
In the episode, protagonist Peter Griffin is asked by sports announcer Bob Costas about his performance at the marathon. A flashback shows Peter mowing down runners with his car.
“I’ll tell ya, Bob, I just got in my car and drove it,” Griffin says. “And when there was a guy in my way, I killed him.”
Later, Peter befriends a terrorist who, unbeknownst to him, is plotting to blow up a bridge. When Peter dials a cellphone the friend has given him, explosions and screams are heard. On some websites, an edited clip has been circulating that fuses the two scenes, making it seem — incorrectly — as if the explosion was at the marathon. Some commenters have implied that the show “predicted” the bombings.
OF course this is insensitive, and really just happened at a bad time. I won’t argue that. I will say though that comedy shouldn’t be censored. Everything is up for being made fun of in my eyes. Some people deal with things in a different way. Comedy is a release for many of them no matter how “dark” it is.
While this story isn’t really all that interesting it caught my eye today. Someone gave me a few of them the other day, and i had NEVER tried one before. I figured they were just marshmallow junk with some nasty coating on them. Instead I was amazed at how friggin’ sweet they were. They are completely covered in some sort of sugar. I thought for sure I was going to be disgusted by it, but man did that thing satisfy my sweet tooth. So…60 years old this year and this was the first one I ever had. I hope they put some out for cashiers nc real estate last week.
America’s Most Wanted has been on the air since 1988, and until 2011 was on Fox, which cancelled it due to “lack of profitability”. The show has helped capture over 1,100 criminals in the U.S. and 30 cother countries.
Now…Lifetime is cancelling the show, but says that John Walsh, the host is pitching a pilot to the channel. They say they will continue to shop it around, but this is its second cancellation.
Now…how exactly do you go about shutting a show like this down? Basically a show that helps catch criminals. Not a show that shows you those that are already captured like Investigation Discovery makes its money on. With metal cabinets for sale full of the same crimes on 12 different shows. People love the crime shows. How can this show, that actually does a public service get cancelled due to “lack of profitability”? Insane isn’t it?
Ummm…OK. So are they in jail yet? If you are gonna take a fictional character to justify your “Robin Hood” nonsense you probably don’t want to pick a serial killer now do you? What’s the point of this anyways? To ruin celebrities to the point that they will need to sell textbooks at becksbooks.com?
Among the celebs hacked … Kim Kardashian, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Mel Gibson, Ashton Kutcher, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Donald Trump, Al Gore, and Hulk Hogan. It’s still unclear how the hackers selected their victims. more
