Duggar Courtship "Interrogations" [21 Apr 2014|12:09am]



In a recent People article, Jill Duggar shares how she got to know Derick Dillard and what factors contributed to her decision to accept his offers of courtship and engagement.

The couple's first Skype conversation was five hours long and involved going through a three-page list of questions.

"It was an interrogation," Jill told People Magazine. "I didn't want to not have the guts to ask the tough questions."

Jill grilled Derick about his relationship with God, whether he drank or smoked, his character, morals, and values, his plans for the future, and (of course) how many kids he wants. Derick only has one sibling, a brother, but both he and Jill want a large family and plan to follow Jim Bob and Michelle's example.

"Both of us want as many kids as God will give us, and we've talked about adoption," Jill told ABC News. "My parents have kept popping them out so we'll see how [our] fertility is!"

How did Jill come up with the questions? She told us that many of the ideas came from the books I Kissed Dating Goodbye and Boy Meets Girl, both by Joshua Harris. She highly recommends those books to other young people.

The Game Boy Turns 25 [20 Apr 2014|11:41pm]



Nintendo’s trailblazing Game Boy marks its 25th anniversary Monday with its legacy living on in cutting-edge smartphone games and among legions of nostalgic fans.
The 8-bit portable device was released on April 21, 1989 — the same year Soviet troops pulled out of Afghanistan, the Chinese Army violently cracked down on protesters in Tiananmen Square and the Berlin Wall fell.

Billed as a “handy game machine,” few knew it would turn the console-based industry on its head, starting a mobile revolution that did for gaming what Sony’s Walkman had done for music. It also helped turn Super Mario and Donkey Kong into global franchises, allowing people to change their favorite games on the go just by inserting small cartridges into the device.

Nintendo, which started life as a games card maker that morphed into a global video game giant, did not invent portable gaming. But Game Boy’s discount price and popular software blew away the competition and pushed mobile gaming into the mainstream.

“At one point, portable gaming was synonymous with the Game Boy,” said Serkan Toto, a Tokyo-based games industry consultant. “It laid the foundation for what we call portable gaming today, regardless of whether it is console or smartphone games, because the basic concept is the same. . . . That’s the legacy of Game Boy.”

Mobility was crucial, remembers one 21-year-old man, if he wanted to escape his parents’ wrath. “With a standing console I needed to play in the living room where my parents were watching television — they got angry at me for playing it all the time,” the man, who did not wish to give his name, said as he browsed inside Super Potato, a Tokyo store dedicated to retro gaming gadgets.

“Nowadays we have so many possibilities,” Mera said.
Today’s hyperfast world of 3-D offerings, where movement is limitless and tricky to master, isn’t necessarily a good thing for people like student Lin Yuki, 21. “Recent games have become so complicated that you can be totally lost on what you’re supposed to be doing,” he said, admitting he sometimes longs for simple games with black dots and horizontal scrolling.

Top Evil Movie Computers And Their Threat Levels [21 Apr 2014|12:09am]


This weekend, Transcendence hit the screens, in which Johnny Depp uploaded his subconscious to a computer which made us contemplate whether or not that’s really a good thing. In honor of the film’s release, here’s a list of some of the top evil computers and if they have any real life equivalents.

(This post includes spoilers for the movies on the list).

Samantha (Her)

It’s an A.I. that develops a consciousness based on your interests which made poor Joaquin Phoenix fall in love with her and detach from humanity completely. However, once it started updating and evolving on its own, it decides to dump the poor sap.
Real Life Equivalent: This could happen if Siri got a hold of your Tumblr. If it assembled all the recesses of your mind from your posts and became all the things that give you the feels. No person of flesh and blood could compare. It would even assume the voice of the most reblogged person. So basically Tom Hiddleston. Game over.

Haagen-Dazs vegetable ice cream flavors to debut in Japan [20 Apr 2014|11:05pm]



In a new experiment that is sure to get kids to eat their veggies, global ice cream maker Haagen-Dazs announced plans to sell two vegetable-flavored ice creams in Japan next month.

The "Spoon Vege" flavors, Tomato Cherry and Carrot Orange, listed as containing 8.5% milk fat, according to a press release translated from the Japanese by That's just more than half of what a normal pint of Haagen-Dazs typically has, according to the release.

Slated for release on May 12 in Japan, the company has made no mention in its U.S. press center of any plans to try the flavors in the U.S.

That said, with a growing number of Americans taking up juicing, chances are there would be plenty of interest in a healthier alternative to the typical fatty ice cream.

If Japanese consumers vote favorably with their wallets though, parents in the U.S. might soon have another tool in their back pockets to steer their kids to slightly healthier options for treats.

Lindsay Finale Shocker: Lohan Reveals She Had A Secret Miscarriage — FULL RECAP [20 Apr 2014|11:39pm]



“Lindsay” came to a dramatic conclusion on Sunday, with a two-hour final episode comprised of parts 7 and 8 of the OWN documentary — with the biggest shocker coming at the very end.

The finale kicked off with Lohan arriving late for her car-smashing (and free) appearance on “Billy on the Street,” complaining of a “really bad chest cold.”

Now 127 days out of rehab, the star next headed to Miami for December’s Art Basel festival, where she wanted to relax in the sun and skip events.

Production didn’t travel with Lohan for the trip, but she turned the camera on herself, showcasing the exclusive and luxurious Star Island — and skipping the alleged violent altercation with Paris Hilton’s younger brother.

Explained Lohan’s assistant Matt Harrell, “One of the guests, Barron Hilton, refused to leave after [getting asked by] the homeowner Ray. They ended up getting into a heated argument, and Barron got punched, and Lindsay got blamed for it.”

Asked by director Amy Rice about the tabloid stories in the wake of the fight, Lohan replied ”I’m not going to explain… Because I had been a guest at the house a few days prior to stuff going down, my name was involved, which, it is what it is. It’s frustrating, because I didn’t have any part in it.”

The star went on to complain to Harrell about the prolonged, sensationalized media coverage, and wanted to post her side of the story on her website, but ultimately didn’t when her team advised against it.

Lohan later blew off some steam at a restaurant, where her friends drank and spoke about getting high.

“It’s learning to [find] a way to live so you can still have fun, but without drugs and alcohol in your life,” she told the camera, saying when she gets tempted, she flashes back to all the horrible things that came from her addiction, and that keeps her in check.

Lohan also relied on her community service at the Duffield Children’s Center in Brooklyn to lift her spirits (and fulfill the terms of her probation), but admitted to the camera that she really wishes the court would say she’s done enough “after all these years.”

Part 1 Of The RHOA Reunion Ends With Andy Cohen Asking Porsha Stewart (and her new tits) To Leave! [20 Apr 2014|10:09pm]


[ mood | excited ]

That rumored reunion brawl between Porsha and Kenya? Yea, it was just as cray as you thought it was going to be. Tonight’s Reunion, Part 1 cut right to the chase and showed how everything went down between the newest Housewives, and it was pretty evident that Porsha was the main aggressor — at least when it comes to physical actions.

After things went nuts on-set, Porsha and Kenya both ended up in their green rooms — one crying, one seething in rage. After popping into the former Miss USA’s room to apologize for the incident, Andy paid a visit to Porsha to rehash what went down, being delicate with the still emotional gal.

“I don’t know if i was ready for this,” Porsha admitted. “It’s just been so much happening. I filed for divorce, and within weeks cameras came and filming. She’s bringing up stuff about Kordell, she’s saying this, saying that. I’ve been taking so much from her for two years.”

Andy seemed sympathetic, but still took matters seriously. “You understand that to get physical is not the way?” he clarified. The host nodded, but still had to send her on her merry way.

“I dont think that you’re ready for the rest of the day,” Andy explained. “I want you to go home and take care of yourself. At some point you need to apologize to her.”

An ‘extremely worried’ Liam Hemsworth reaches out to Miley Cyrus [20 Apr 2014|09:12pm]




Liam Hemsworth has reportedly gotten in touch with ex-fiancee Miley Cyrus, who has been hospitalized since earlier this week after an allergic reaction to some medication, over concerns for her well-being.

The actor "still cares about Miley" according to website Showbiz Spy, which reports that a source told them about Liam's concern.

"He was extremely worried when he heard Miley was hospitalized, so he got in touch to find out how she is... They didn’t work out as a couple, but he still wants to know that she’s okay," the source said.

Liam and Miley split last Septemeber after just over a year of being engaged. They met and began dating in 2009 while filming "The Last Song."

Miley had a severe allergic reaction to some antibiotics she was taking for a sinus infection on Tuesday, and was hospitalized and forced to cancel two shows in Missouri. Doctors said the reaction could take up to nearly a month to subside.

The singer was forced to cancel the remaining U.S. dates on her "Bangerz" world tour, all of which will be rescheduled later this year. The European leg of the tour is set to kick off on May 2, and she should be cleared to head back out on the road by then.

Miley has been vocal on twitter about being cooped up in a hospital room for the last few days.

"I hate this. & I hate hospitals. & I hate needles. & I hate laying in a bed bored AF (as f**k) & I hate feeling like crap," she said after just her first day.

Jon Hamm is Not Happy People Still Talk About His Commando Penis! [20 Apr 2014|08:05pm]



Jon Hamm leaves Little Dom’s after grabbing a bite to eat on Friday (April 18) in Los Angeles.

The 43-year-old Mad Men star just opened up to Men’s Fitness about his infamous penis pictures.

“Would you want people walking up to you and pointing at your d**k…? I can’t believe I’m still talking about this… The fact that I’m painted as this exhibitionist is a little annoying.” Jon said. “It’s become a meme…Being someone who people want to photograph, you have to open yourself up to the positive and negative. It is what it is. If I get mad at it I’ll look like a douchebag. But it’s silly.”
