A friend on Facebook wanted to find the full, original, uncut version of Frank Capra’s Classic It’s A Wonderful Life online. Fortunately,...

Why are women jealous of fit women? Ask Megan Avalon. Women bodybuilders, fitness models, and female athletes tend to bring out extreme views, especially from, well, other women. Take what US Women’ Soccer Star Hope Solo had to deal with on Dancing With The Stars 2011 when she was called “too muscular.” Or take this blog post where the author starts...

David Letterman was nice to Olympic Skier Lindsey Vonn. In the great tradition of female guests on the show (most notably Jennifer Aniston, Eva Longoria, and Jessica Alba) Lindsey Vonn came on the The Late Show With David Letterman and made an obvious attempt to show her legs. And I mean even to the point of holding up her skirt and pushing it back to make sure you...

After the USA Women’s Soccer Team was eliminated in a most-dramatic finals match against Japan, it looked like the team’s spark plug Abby Wambach would not gain the spotlight she so rightly deserved, and watched as her extraordinary teammate Hope Solo grabbed the many opportunities for stardom (not to mention a whopping increase in Twitter Followers) that came...

TechCrunch Senior Editor Sarah Lacy, who I first met when she was hanging with then-Valleywag Editor Owen Thomas, is the first former TechCrunch staffer (there are a lot of them: Michael Arrington , Paul Carr, Heather Harde, and Lacy) to actually announce that she’s going to announce a first funding round for a new venture – a tech news website called PandoDaily.com. Right...

In 2007, this blogger made a video question for the CNN YouTube Republican Debates for Ron Paul, and it was based on the work of Alan Bernstein of the Houston Chronicle, where he wrote: Texas congressional candidate Ron Paul’s 1992 political newsletter highlighted portrayals of blacks as inclined toward crime and lacking sense about top political issues. Under the headline...

The Indianapolis Colts shocked Houston Texans at Lucas Oil Field Thursday 19 to 16, and moved their record to 2-13. And they did it with just enough defense (the Texans were held to under 300 yards, with 283), just enough offense, (Quarterback Dan Orlovsky, replacing the injured Peyton Manning, threw for 244 yards), and timely plays to win. The victory was the Colts...

Here’s a television recommendation that is definitely a nice Christmas present. While searching Netflix for a new show and series to get into my boyfriend and I found the show Jericho. Now, although the show only aired from 2006-2008 and had two seasons – this show is addicting. We are in the first season about 21 episodes in, and it is probably one of...

Zennie62 will be in Las Vegas for CES 2012 between January 8, 2012 and January 15th 2012, and looking through my press emails, the trend and buzz is concerned with mobile and with 3D. On top of that, there are several interesting conferences within the Consumer Electronics Show that are of note. First off, this blogger’s focus will be on “Digital Hollywood,”...

Twitter loves Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. For a movie, let alone a brand, Twitter can be Heaven or Hell. One well-timed, creatively written tweet can cause a flurry of re-tweets and copycats that can trash a movie just as it’s released. Or, Twitter can be the device that makes an unknown movie a blockbuster, or keeps a film, like Scott Pilgrim Versus...

Whatever Monta Ellis did, Erika Ross Smith’s just opened herself up to a World of bad media. The problem with what seems to be a flurry of sexual harassment claims and charges in the New Media Age is they are starting to make the accusers look really bad. Such is the case with Erika Ross Smith and her claim this morning that Golden State Warriors Guard Monta Ellis...

Reuters and The Chicago Tribune have both reported that Kim Jong-il’s body is going to be embalmed. This means that his body is going to be on display under glass for a while: “”It’s all about idolizing (the Kim family). They keep their bodies preserved to keep the regime intact,” said Hong Soon-kyung, a former North Korean ambassador...

The video below by “dukkhaboy” on YouTube gives some of the flavor of last night’s Oakland City Council Hearing, as Port Of Oakland Executive Director Omar Benjamin talks against the Occupy Oakland Port Shutdown Action of last week, (and in support of a wild resolution to grant extraordinary police powers to prevent future Port shutdown attempts), and...

GOP House Speaker John Boehner (R, 8th District Ohio) should be spanked, horse-collared, tarred and feathered, and just plain slapped in the face for his total fuckhead behavior at the expense of the economy and for nothing more than petty politics. Speaker Boehner – and some of his Republican followers – can’t stand the news that the U.S. Economy is...

The news that Actress Debra Messing is separating From husband Daniel Zelman comes as no surprise to this blogger. Not for any inside info on their marriage, but because of something that hit me this weekend. It seems like the holidays – or maybe the 2011 Christmas Season – brings out the worst in relationships. Last Saturday I saw a friend who was crying...

Ever been “so hungry that you could eat a horse?” Well at the end of November President Obama sparked a lot of controversy when he legalized the slaughtering of horses for meat. Obama signed the 2012 Agriculture Appropriations Bill on November 18, 2011 that allowed the continued slaughtering of what has been over 100,000 horses a year on American soil....

On this first day of the Festival of Lights, just wishing you and everyone a very Happy Hanukkah! Today, President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama offered these words: “Michelle and I send our warmest wishes to all those celebrating Hanukkah around the world… We believe that through faith and determination, we can work together to build a brighter, better...

Morrie Turner is the symbol of Oakland’s unique way it expresses its diverse culture. The famous cartoonist best known for his Wee Pals cartoon creations, is as much a part of Oakland’s Soul as the Tribune Tower, Lake Merritt, and the Oakland Coliseum. But, even though Turner’s Wee Pals wasn’t ran in many newspapers in 1965, and because of the...

The Baltimore Ravens clinched a playoff spot for the 4th consecutive season before Sunday’s game against the San Diego Chargers. Clinching was the only bright spot of the day as the Ravens put on a lackluster performance in another nationally televised game. The game was ugly and painful to watch. The Chargers aren’t a great team and struggled this season, but their...

The San Francisco 49ers played a whale of a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers and overcame The Black and Gold’s QB Ben Rothlisberger, the Steelers’ Defense, and two power outages to win, 20 to 3. Indeed, the 49ers first took control of the game with opportunistic defense that produced four turnovers, and then won it with slick and timely offensive schemes....

As this is written, the NFL Football game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Pittsburgh Steelers has been twice interrupted by a power outage. A transformer blew up just before the start of the game, delaying it for 20 minutes. Then, during the middle of the 2nd Quarter, the lights went out again. According to ESPN, no one at Candlestick Park is giving an explanation...

Jon Bon Jovi is not dead. A blog called dailynewbloginternational.wordpress.com posted a fake news post with this headline: “International Rockstar Legend Jon Bon Jovi dead at 49.” The blog post was communicated via Twitter, and the result was a viral spread that eventually caused “Bon Jovi” to be a Twitter Top-10 Trend. The post went like...

The second trailer for the Legendary Pictures, Syncopy Films, DC Comics film distributed by Warner Bros.

The 69-year-old leader of the communist nation of North Korea is now dead according to many headlines including the BBC which reports that he died on a train while outside the capital. This story is fresh and still developing. The many news sources that I have checked refer a lot to the stroke he had back in 2008, and although it is known that he died on a train the...

Jasper Bailey (AKA Jasper The Beatboxer) is a person I met in Downtown Oakland when I was on the way to Radio Bar. He literally chased me down, asking if I was a producer because he saw me making a video blog of my evening in Oakland to that point in time. Mr. Bailey explained his talent of “beat boxing” (or making vocals that sound like music instruments)...

Dancing With The Stars Winner JR Martinez and his girlfriend Diana Gonsalez-Jones will have their first child, a girl, in the spring. They met about three years ago, became friends in 2010, and decided to become more than friends this year. One more step for JR Martinez: marry the girl. Someone not talking marriage, but talking divorce, is Kobe Bryant’s wife...
