Girl undergoes plastic surgery over Simon Cowell comment

I’ve always found Sir Simon Cowell’s comments to be harsh, but most of the time they sting, ahem, ring true. This time, however, I think the brutish Brit’s gone a tad too far. It was five years ago, actually, that Simon spoke the words that would change a young woman’s life — and body — forever.

Palin puts on a show

It seems like only yesterday when Rep. John McCain announced his running mate, GOP Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. America went wild. God forbid we have a woman in the White House.

She irritated many and charmed few.

Today, it’s next to impossible to take the name Sarah Palin seriously, especially with the recent developments in her storyline.

DJ AM: Another celebrity casualty we shouldn’t care about

The news has been slammed with former member of Crazy Town’s DJ AM and his death.  Many people have spoken out and said his or her kind words of remembrance, many of those who had nothing to do with the individual.

DJ AM, who’s real name is Adam Goldstein, died of possible drug use, joining Michael Jackson as another celebrity who’s use and abuse of a drug has lead to their demise.  But why all the sudden attention for the B-list celebrity?  I suppose it isn’t that unheard of for people to idolize and still look up to rock stars and other musicians as role models, even with the rampant use of drugs for recreational purposes.

Mockery of mockery: ABC’s “Crash Course”

ABC’s “Crash Course,” a show designed around making fun of ‘regular’ Americans trying their luck at what the network has deemed an “outrageous” obstacle course, premiered tonight.

All I have to say is, what was ABC thinking? Who approved this show? Who, if you want to get right down to it, thought that this show would make any money/get a serious viewer following? Honestly?

Deathwing breathes life into Warcraft

The massively multi-player online gaming industry has seen a lot of press over the last decade, with the huge success of Everquest and then the release of Blizzard’s unstoppable force, World of Warcraft.  There are also stories of crazy things people have done, or have let happen, because of their involvement in these online games.  

People have paid more attention to the life of their online Avatar, and their second life, and forgetting simple things like eating, showering, going to work, or feeding the baby he or she left in the closet because its crying was distracting.  There are also the stories of people being killed or beaten over stealing or selling digital property in these games, and those who’ve committed suicide over things not working out in their digital world.

Swine flu shots at schools could do more harm than good

As a child, there was one thing that I hated. School.

Even when I was very young I dreaded the end of summer because I knew that I was soon to be in for nine months of being bossed around by the teacher and dealing with my peers who were always really annoying.

Each year as the little chillins return to their posts, I cannot help but breathe a sigh of relief knowing that I no longer have to deal with that.

This year brings a special celebration after reading that many school districts around the country are turning their schools into vaccination posts for the children.

High School Musical starlet naked…again

The last time she did it, her movie made $42 million in its opening weekend, the highest gross for a musical debut, ever. High School Musical 3 was the film then, but this time, it’s her latest flick, Bandslam, that may have something to do with her risque repeat offense.

Two years ago made for Vanessa Hudgens’s first nude photo opp and chance to bring her latest film to the top by “gracing” the Internet with her goodies. Now, in 2009, she’s at it again, as more nude photos have surfaced. This time, however, it appears she may have purchased (and used) a razor before snapping any pics.

It’s the Vanessa Hudgens’ scandal 2009/Vanessa Hudgens’ scandal take II.

Glenn Beck’s Common Sense: A review

What I love most about this book, Glenn Beck’s Common Sense: The Case Against an Out-of-Control Government, Inspired by Thomas Paine, is how easy it is to read. This, in my opinion, is crucial to Beck’s goal in writing it. He’s trying to get a very serious (in his opinion, and strongly felt throughout the book) message across to his readers, one that is immeasurably easier to feel and infer because of Beck’s diction and syntax. Plain and simple, his words are, well, plain and simple. To get an idea of what I mean, take for instance these few excerpts, which you can find like phrases to throughout the book, “Wake up America!” and “Open your eyes!” I simply find Beck’s simplicity perfectly fitting and ingeniously devised, and that’s not to mention the large print and the fact that the book’s fewer than 200 pages in length.

Explicit “Sprite ad” over the top?

One minute it seems like our society is growing more accustomed to the ideas of open mindedness, free thought and free expression…and the general idea of being entertained, even if it means mother might not be the most approving at what your laughter is directed. Then the next second, it feels like the whole country’s turned into a giant Bible Belt staring at us, the open-minded free thinkers, who are suddenly adorned in black cloaks with “satanist” scribed on our foreheads in blood.

This society really confuses me sometimes, as with this latest fuss over a banned Sprite ad.

From all the articles and news reports I’ve read on the situation, what I’ve been able to gather for myself on what happened is that once this explicit ad was released, those who first saw it, freaked out and blamed, well, who else, but Coca-Cola, a company that obviously paid to sponsor the creation of this extremely adult ad because it featured a bottle of Sprite, logo in full spotlight.

Way too sexy, way too soon: Levin and Kilbourne hit nail on head with book

I picked up this book because it covers a topic I’m very much interested in knowing more about. I’m planning on studying psychology next year in grad school, and the topic covered in Diane E. Levin and Jean Kilbourne’s book, So Sexy So Soon: The New Sexualized Childhood and What Parents Can Do to Protect Their Kids is what interests me more than any other topic in psychology, mostly because I have a strong motivation to help children and teenagers with developing into productive and healthy adults. It also fascinates me how much of a factor the human mind plays into every aspect of human life, sex and sexualization being two of the biggest motivators and of the most powerful influence.

As is this book’s main focus, our society is only becoming more and more sexualized as the days go on. Levin and Kilbourne use examples to demonstrate this assertion such as teenage girls wearing thong panties and padded bras to school, and barely-there Halloween costumes each year. They also mention t-shirts that read “Chick Magnet” sold for toddler boys. All of these examples are true, as I’ve seen them with my own eyes.
