Puff Daddy has no standards...

Freakin' kick-ass Scarface poster

This poster below is of the movie character Scarface (1983, Al Pacino). The bad-ass thing about this poster is that if you look closely the entire poster was created using the entire 300 page script, which means each and every written word from the film is on this thing. Pretty cool if you ask me. And it’s only $13. Click here to buy one.

Lindsay Lohan text messaging story

I know what you are thinking… why the heck haven’t I posted anything about Lindsay Lohan recently? I mean, hello? Come on, we all are obsessed with her aren’t we? JFK. Well, after hearing this rumor of a ‘text messaging’ incident through the grapevine I finally got a hold of a ‘transcript’ of this big incident. So here’s the ‘supposed’ story:

An ordinary guy like myself named Jason Lewis learned that Lindsay Lohan is staying at the Soho Grand, where he happens to be drinking at the bar. Being a prankster, Lewis leaves his name, a message and a number for Lohan. Lohan, thinking the Jason Lewis who has left a message is the same Jason Lewis of Sex and the City fame, returned the call. And so a week of thrilling text messaging begins, culiminating in a climactic resolution.

Now it’s still up for debate if all this is actually true (some people say the facts in this ‘real life account’ don’t exist), regardless… if it is true, it’s one heck of a story to tell people. So here goes:

Subject: The Lohan Story…

For those of you who have been following along the past 10 days….Here it is, in as full detail as I can recall, the entire Lindsay Lohan story, from start to finish…..

Wednesday, November 2: 9pm

After dinner at Kittichai (a new SoHo hotspot) with a recruit (who has since accepted her offer), we decide to take her for a drink to the Soho Grand before calling it a night. Upon a potential celebrity sighting in the lobby of the hotel, we proceed to the bar area and are seated by a hostess. We overhear conversation that Lindsay Lohan is in fact staying at the hotel that night.

9:30- After a drink and still discussing the fact that Ms. Lohan might be a guest in the hotel, I pick up my cell phone and call the Soho Grand main phone line. I ask to be connected to Lindsay’s room. After a brief hesitation, the operator puts me through. 4 rings, then voicemail.

“Hi Lindsay, its Jason Lewis. I am in the lobby of the SoHo Grand with some people, thought it would be nice to meet up for a drink. Why don’t you head downstairs if you’re free, should be a fun time. If not, give me a call, my cell number is ….”

We laugh it off. Maybe if she’s there (not likely) and gets the message (even less likely) she would be intrigued enough to come downstairs for a drink. After all, she is an avid follower of the [redacted] industry and should immediately know who I am from the message, right??….Either that, or she may think I was the actor on Sex and the City….you know that guy who seeing Samantha in the final season and just so happens to share the same name as me… The phone battery dies that night. No message the next day.

Friday, November 4th: 3:31 AM

Peacefully sleeping before a normal Friday workday, my cell phone rings and wakes me up:
JL: “Hello…"

??: “Um, hi, is this Jason?”

JL: (still fast asleep) “Yes…who is this?”

??: “Oh my god, its 330, I am so sorry! What is wrong with me? You are sleeping, I just woke you up…”

JL: “I’m sorry, who is this?”

??: “It’s Lindsay…”

JL: (no Lindsay coming to mind at this hour) “Wait, who is this?”

??: “Oh, its Lindsay Lohan…you left me a message here in my room last night. How did you know I was staying here?”

JL: “It’s a long story…you should have come down for a drink, it was fun… we should meet up for a drink soon…”

??: “Well, I am leaving tomorrow for LA….is this your cell phone number? Can I call you next week when I am back in NY?”

JL: “Yes….enjoy LA”

??: “Thanks….and I am sooo sorry I woke you up! I should have realized!!!”

JL: “Its ok….good night…”

In my sleep, I check the call log. I notice the call came from a ‘Restricted Call’ at 3:31am. However, at 3:30am a call was missed from a 310 (LA) phone number…..could this be her cell phone?

Beer, Bongs, and Thongs = hazing?

The men's lacrosse team at Marquette University has been suspended for a year after finding out hazing occurred at a party involving beer, bongs, and thongs.

Yeah, sounds like a cool ass party to me- beer, bongs, and thongs? How could anything go wrong!

It was the first time in at least 10 years that a team had been suspended for hazing. None of the nearly two dozen team members were disciplined individually. Photographs of the party that were posted on the Internet by a lacrosse player and e-mailed to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel by a concerned alumnus offer a taste of what went on.

The pictures show young men partying inside and outside a house with a sign that reads Marquette Lacrosse. Many of the men are dressed in nothing but thongs and tennis shoes. The photos capture them lined up with their faces against a wall and bent over with their hands held up to their bottoms. Other pictures show thonged men mingling among male and female party-goers who are clothed. In one photo, clothed students are drinking out of what appears to be a beer bong.

The team had 10 days to appeal the suspension, but chose not to. The team's coach, who was hired by the players, agreed with the decision. The administration would work with the coach and players on ways to get the team back on track for the next school year.

If you ask me this is just a big misunderstanding- and what they did was hilarious. Click here to read the full article.

4 days until X-Box 360 is released...hell yeah!

Husband sleeps with dead wife for 5 months!

A devoted husband slept with the body of his dead wife for five months. Ex-milkman Howard Lewis, 69, kept chatting about the weather and local gossip to Elizabeth, who died aged 79 in June.

And he slept in the same bed as her corpse gradually became “mummified”.

Outside his home Mr. Lewis kept up an appearance of normality by shopping and exchanging pleasantries with neighbors in his quiet tree-lined street. Police were finally alerted by one worried neighbors who realized she had not seen Mrs. Lewis since the summer. It appears the woman’s husband found it difficult to accept his wife had died and did not report her death. As time went on it became more and more difficult for him to tell anyone what happened. He tried to carry on living a normal life.

Mr. Lewis was arrested on suspicion of concealing a body, but later freed on bail. The husband has moved out and is staying with a relative nearby.

I really don't need to comment on how tragicly sad yet disturbing this is. I think it speaks for itself. Eww & Awe. Click here to read the article.
