Tony Stark is out of the superhero closet, and it's no picnic.
The sequel to last summer's blockbuster, which began shooting three weeks ago and opens May 7, 2010, takes place six months after Stark revealed his identity as Iron Man, says director Jon Favreau. And the development is playing out with unexpected results. "How many superheroes are open about their true identities?" he asks. "We wanted to play with that idea. But it obviously has consequences — in his relationships, on the team. There are a lot of areas we can explore."
He hopes to have all other Iron Man 2 details locked down — even though he's sending dispatches via Twitter from the set. "It's never easy with summer movies, but we're trying to keep as much a surprise as possible," he says.
That means no new dirt on replacing Terrence Howard with Don Cheadle, or how the crime-fighting team S.H.I.E.L.D. will ultimately come together. Or how he'll work in new characters. Among those signed on for this go-round are Mickey Rourke as Whiplash, Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Sam Rockwell as Justin Hammer.
Tron Legacy is a forthcoming 2010 science fiction film. It is a sequel to the 1982 film Tron. Joseph Kosinski is directing the film, while the previous film director, Steven Lisberger, returns as a producer. Jeff Bridges will reprise his role as Kevin Flynn, while Garrett Hedlund will portray Flynn's now-adult son, Sam. The other cast members include Bruce Boxleitner, Olivia Wilde, Beau Garrett and John Hurt. According to the teaser trailer shown at the 2008 and 2009 Comic Con, the film will be presented in Disney Digital 3-D and IMAX 3D.

Uttering the words "Yo Quiero Taco Bell," Gidget, a female dog, played a male dog in the commercials.
First things first, how in the world do they know the dog had a stroke?
Lastly, Michael Vick was recently let off of house arrest and released from FBI custody, the next day, Gidget, the 15-year-old Taco Bell dog died….coincidence?
I think not.
I am very impressed by this concept...THE VIDEO SUCKS...but great concept, however I have few questions.
How well with this work in a side impact accident?
When it rains or snows, does your car get really wet and filthy or what?
Not trying to be a downer, I love the concept and love what it would do for parking but just a little bit skeptical I guess, just the Oldschool in me.
I mean what happens when the car lands in the water?...because the car WILL LAND IN THE WATER!!!

When John Madden attached his name to a football video game in 1989, no one could have seen its extreme popularity coming. The 2010 version of the game will be released August 14, and hordes of fans will be in line at midnight openings of video game stores around the country.
Apparently, Seattle Seahawks wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh will not be among them.
Houshmandzadeh did an interview with Colin Cowherd of ESPN Radio, and told the host he would be boycotting the latest version of the
game. He said he's not happy with his rating.
"I understand I averaged 10 yards a
catch, but it's the offense, not me. I'm not playing Madden no more until they get my rating right. ... I used to be the best in the world at Madden. I'm going to miss not playing it, but until they do me right, I'm not playing it any more."
You may want to know what this awful rating is for Houshmandzadeh. As Mike Sando notes, it's 91. The game rates him as the sixth-best receiver in the NFC.
Unless you're a direct relative of Houshmandzadeh's, it's hard to argue with any of the five (cover boy Larry Fitzgerald, Steve Smith, Anquan Boldin, Roddy White, and Calvin Johnson) rated ahead of Houshmandzadeh. All of this is probably a good thing for Seattle.
After all, Houshmandzadeh is portraying himself as a guy with a lot to prove, and the
sizable chip on his shoulder now includes this video game flap. Whether he actually buys the game, rents the game, or plays the game at a buddy's house is irrelevant. Some guys need the extra psychological boost that comes from feeling disrespected. If Houshmandzadeh is that kind of player, these latest comments will only help him as he starts his career anew as a number one receiver for the first time.
Here is the oldschool CLASSIC UNIVERSITY take on the this crap....
Wide Recievers are officially the Vagina of the NFL!
An iPhone application which lets users find their nearest CANNABIS dealer
has been approved by Apple.
Simply named Cannabis, the £1.79 app
lets users search by city for their nearest medical cannabis suppliers, doctors,
clinics, lawyers and other relevant organizations.
It currently covers 13 US states which have passed laws allowing medical cannabis use, legal cannabis "coffee shops" across Europe and uses Google Maps for directions.
Makers the campaign group Ajnag.com hope to add cannabis related news, menus, reviews and videos soon.
It is available from the Apple iTunes App Store now, and requires the iPhone 3.0 Software Update.
If you listen real hard you can hear the car keys rattling, the garage opening, the Ferrari engine revving and the tires screeching as Snoop Dogg races out to the Apple Store to get a new iPhone with all the trimmings…LOL!!!
"After thousands of years, why do Asian people still use chopsticks?
I guess they are not impressed by forks.”
Yeah it is funny but that is a great question. The Fork is a awesome invention, you can eat almost anything with them, and anything you cannot get with a fork we have the almighty Spoon, so what is the deal?
You can’t eat soup with chopsticks, you can’t cut your meat with chopsticks, I can barely pick up sushi with chopsticks, however chopsticks are quite unproblematic if you like stabbing yourself in the eye. Just ask me.
Plus a fork is so versatile, you can use a few fingers to hold a fork, just like chopsticks or you can make a fist and shove the fork right into the side of your fist and eat like a child if you wish. I love it either way.
Speaking of which, what if you have a baby and you are feeding your baby let's say.....baby-food, do you use chopsticks? What does the baby use to eat his food once he is old enough to try? I know some very intelligent and athletic adults that cannot handle chopsticks, so what is baby supposed to do?
I mean what the fork man?!?!

Authorities say former NFL star Steve McNair had a blood-alcohol level twice Tennessee’s legal limit for driving when his girlfriend shot him to death.
Tennessee Assistant Medical Examiner Feng Li said Monday that a toxicology report showed a trace amount of marijuana in the body of Sahel Kazemi. Police say the 20-year-old Kazemi shot McNair July 4 in a Nashville condo before killing herself.
Police say McNair was likely asleep when he was shot twice in the head and twice in the chest. Li said there was no way to tell from the report how long before McNair’s death he had been drinking. Kazemi was arrested for drunken driving in Nashville two days before the shooting. Police video of the arrest showed her telling the officer
that she was high.
The man was sleeping on the sofa he paid for in an apartment he was paying for after sexing a mistress he was also paying for…WHERE IS THE PROBLEM HERE!??!?!
This crap is a top story now days? It has to be all over the news that a man was drunk and sleeping when some crazy broad shot him to death!! Question…..how drunk do you have to before you DON’T get shot while sleeping on your own couch. That is the only news I am interested in seeing. I am so sick of the media sensationalizing every little detail of every story. Regular people die everyday, there are major tragedies going on in the world like, war, hunger, natural disasters and all they have to talk about is Steve McNair’s blood-alcohol level?
Holley, who played four years at North Carolina before brief stints with the Cincinnati Bengals and British Columbia Lions of the Canadian Football League, was working for a security monitoring company and selling cellphones. At 25, he believed his football career was over.
On Monday night, Holley, a wide receiver who was a member of the Tar Heels'
2005 national championship basketball team, was anointed the winner of Michael
Irvin's 4th and Long on Spike TV. His prize is the 80th and final roster spot when the Cowboys report to training camp in San Antonio on July 28. Holley is listed as 6-3, 215 pounds with 4.5-second speed in the 40-yard dash.
Irvin said that in addition to his physical abilities, Holley is one of the quickest learners he has seen. "He'd pick up things immediately," Irvin said. "If I am a coach and I see him implement something right away, I know I have a player."
Just before Irvin's verdict, Jones told the three finalists, "If one of you is the
ballplayer that Michael and Joe and Bill say, you've got a chance be here. Clear
your Sunday afternoon calendar cause you are going to be spending it out here
with a big star on your helmet."
Holley will be the 11th wide receiver in camp. The Cowboys likely will keep five. Veterans Roy Williams, Miles Austin, Sam Hurd and Patrick Crayton appear to be safe bets to make the team. He will have to prove himself an invaluable special teams player. "Outside of Roy Williams, I'm not looking at a guy that is head and shoulders above Jesse," Irvin said.
The holdover receivers might take exception to Avezzano, the former Cowboys
special teams coach, who during the finale said, "Holley is a flat-out solid
receiver and can be better than some of the backups the Cowboys have right
In my humble opinion that is just what THE PLAYMAKER did, he gave the Cowboys Jesse Holley, former Tarheel standout, and he will make that team and I for one cannot wait to see him play with that star on his helmet.

BLACKsummers'night is full of emotions that only great music can give you. I feel almost as though I am able to feel what he was feeling when these songs were created.
The music and the lyrics stay with you. On the song “FIST FULL OF TEARS” Maxwell says…
How deep is that?We gon fight the warWe gon fight our fearsThe only thing I wanna throw is a fistful of tears
This unbelievable masterpiece will take you back to the old school (CLASSIC UNIVERSITY) days of Marvin Gaye, The O'Jays, The Whispers, Luther Vandross, and The Commodores.
When a man is able to comeback and make music like this after close to a decade of down time, in the mind of Classic University, Maxwell is now in the same category with legends like Stevie Wonder and Prince. Yes I said it. I know he has not made nearly as much music as they have but he has been extremely consistent and the quality as has been as high as it gets each and every time.
I never thought I would be saying this but Maxwell is even more musical than he has ever been on this album. Feels strange saying this but Maxwell has grown, matured if you will, as an artist and we the listeners have benefitted tremendously. I read that Maxwell used a 10-piece band live in the studio and it is very obvious in the sound and vibe that the chemistry was through the roof.
This process should be a shot of espresso to a music industry that needs to WAKE UP!!! We need more 10 piece live bands in the studio! That kind of sound CANNOT be duplicated by computers.
The only problem I have with the masterpiece is that it is not long enough. There are only 9 songs and I am already hungry for the next of the BLACKSUMMERS' NIGHT trilogy. Honestly, I can talk about this album forever, but in closing, here is a little more information on the BLACKSUMMERS' NIGHT trilogy.
The trilogy's subsequent chapters, blackSUMMERS' night and blacksummers' NIGHT, are slated for release in 2010 and 2011 respectively. This 2009 album reunites Maxwell with long-time collaborator Hod David, who serves as co-producer and co-writer of the album. Striving for an emotional authenticity and real world sound for the album, Maxwell and Hod recorded the entire album live in the studio with an A-list ensemble of elegantly sympathetic musicians.

VH1 has teamed up with one of the most recognizable names and personalities in sports – Terrell Owens -- who will star in his own reality show slated to premiere in the summer of 2009 on VH1.
As a Dallas Cowboy fan, I will watch the show, as a CLASSIC UNIVERSITY NFL fan, I will hate every moment of the show as this insecure Prima-Donna tries hard to get attention and make a career for himself after his NFL career is over(which is very near by the way).
