You’ve been hearing the ominous commercial about the big nation wide test on November 9, 2011 at 1 pm and how everyone just HAD to clarify that it was only a test.
Most people assumed this meant the message was going to include some sort of doomsday cry comparable to “War of the Worlds.” We even considered an office pot to determine which type of crisis would be hypothetically recorded then broadcast.
1:00 pm rolls around: and NOTHING. There weren’t even words. Just the annoying standard beeping tones you hear on a boring non-hyped EAS test.
So, I’ve decided to create this thread for you to post the emergency message topic that would have been cooler than the one we heard. Any disaster *even imaginary* will work.
Mine? A message about the impending zombie threat. You know it’s coming..
Submit yours here, on our facebook page, or email ‘em to me.
The threat is real.
And, can I just add, if that had been a national emergency.. we’d all be @#$%ed.
Get ‘em while you can my friends.. big labels are trying to kill our beloved cds.
I can still remember my first one: Britney Spears- Hit Me Baby One More Time.
Music just sounds better on a cd.. and no, I don’t mean that in a pretentious hipster and vinyl kind of way.
I have just always been one of those people who enjoys buying cds over downloading music.. probably because everytime I attempt to make a cd full of downloaded music it usually craps out after a few plays.
So naturally, I was floored by this news I read on the music site Side Line. The major record labels are planning to kill off the CD format by the end of next year to make way for digital downloads only. The only CDs that will go on sale through 2013 and beyond will be special editions and albums from the biggest artists..
The news has not yet been confirmed by any major record label.
Do you still buy cds? Or are you an ipod/zune/whatever/intergalacticplanetary/ digital all the way? What do you think about this predicted death of the cd?
I feel the sudden urge to hit up Best Buy..

Don’t get too excited if your significant other starts losing weight.. it’s probably not for you.
According to a new study when people in steady relationships start to actively work out or diet to fight flab, it’s because they are preparing to drop their other half.
Sociologists claim there’s no pressure to look attractive if you’ve already snagged your better half.. and as such you apparently start to let yourself go and feel less inclined to worry about things like expanding waistlines.
So if your boyfriend or girlfriend starts to develop an insane obsession with the gym or dieting, be afraid. It’s most likely in preparation to join a competitive dating market where people like to look as thin and attractive as possible.
What do you think about this? I’ve known people do this very thing.. but then I also know people who lose weight for themselves to be healthier. And then what about the couples that lose weight together?
Put down that freezer burned box of Thin Mints you’ve been hoarding in your freezer and prepare yourself for possibly the greatest news you’ll hear all day.
Lip Smackers has just created a line of Girl Scout Cookie Flavored lip balms..
That’s right. The gangs all there: Thin Mint, Shortbread, Peanut Butter Sandwich, Caramel Delights, and the Peanut Butter Pattie ones I refuse to call Tagalongs.
These lip balms combine the taste and smell of the cookies, without the extra pounds and guilt you feel after downing a box of Caramel Delights in one sitting. The only downside is developing a nasty habit of licking your lips, but thankfully the good people at Lip Smackers accounted for this and made each balm hydrating. Buy them individually or get all five in a set for $5 at Wal-Mart and Claire’s stores. Come 2012 they’ll be available in the liquid lip gloss version too.
So if you can’t wait until those uniformed devils make it to your house with that glorious order form you can’t pass up.. this may just tide you over. While you’re not
able to encouraged to actually eat the cookies this way, if you’re really in withdrawal they might offer you that little fix you need. (Just try not to ingest too much flavored wax.)
What do you think? These could be awesome stocking stuffers for the upcoming holiday.. and BONUS make your girlfriend/boyfriend wear your favorite flavor and you’ll be tasting cookies all year round. Would you try this in your favorite Girl Scout Cookie?
Just so we’re clear, turning them into lip balms won’t keep me from eating them.
Who could forget this face?
That’s right it’s none other than our favorite Ricky Martin impersonator: William Hung!
And apparently he’s been keeping busy as America’s favorite American Idol auditioner has found a new gig – with the Los Angeles County Sherriff’s Department.
Talk about a career shift.
Hung is now reportedly working for the LA County Sherriff’s Department as a Technical Crime Analyst, meaning he is analyzing trends and patterns in crimes. This can help law enforcement deploy resources in a more effective manner, as well as playing a role in apprehending suspects, solving crimes, and formulating crime prevention strategies.
…because nothing deters crime like bad karoake and floral prints.
Before auditioning for Idol, Hung was a student at UC Berkeley, studying civil engineering.
Guess we can kiss that dream of a Martin/Hung duet goodbye.
