Tron to Takeovers: A Day in the life of…(4/10)

Posted by goldwriting on April 10, 2008

1 – The main point of this article is that Chili from R&B/Hip-Hop wondergroup TLC turned down a very lucrative and influential movie role so that she could stay at home with her newborn son. As sweet as that is, I think the real key to the article is the fact she named her son Tron. Holy crap! I was gonna do that. I’m so depressed now. What am I going to do with all those neon-piped baby clothes I had special ordered? Maybe I could get away with naming it MCP… [via Starpulse]

2 – When something starts mentioning packing tape babies, how can you not check it out? [via JoshSpear]

3 – I actually have one of these in my room. The ribbon isn’t even real fabric, it’s clear tape colored over with a sharpie… [via Garfield Minus Garfield]

4 – Doctors are hoping to get hold of Keith Richards body after he dies to find out how he has lived so long with his lifestyle as it is. You might think doctors are real smart or something, but they are missing two key elements here: First, Keith Richards has been legally dead for seventeen years. His body and brain only function now purely off the adrenalin built up over years of cocaine and high powered blotter acid. Two, the moment his body finally stops working, it will surely crumble to dust like Dracula or that dude from the Mummy movies. Have fun testing 98-year-old sand piles, Doc. [via Starpulse]

5 – Somehow I thought since the culture of Egypt brought us some of the Great Wonders of the World and how they seemed to be so extremely civilized before most of the world caught onto what that really meant, this would all translate into a society that didn’t arrest people and sentence them to 3-5 years in jail for being gay. I guess the gay rights people should think of changing their logo from the triangle to something looking less like a pyramid before Egypt has them all shot for copyright infringement. [via Yahoo]

7 – For those of you out there who like to laugh and help out a wonderful cause, which should cover all you out there, except Lex Luthor, he’s kind of a grinch, everyone else should tune in this Sunday night to Comedy Central’s A Night of Too Many Stars comedy benefit to help fight Autism. It’s being hosted by Jon Stewart and you can only imagine where he will go when the chains of the Oscar hosting are loosened. TiVo is set to stun (and chortle). [via Starpulse]

8 – Reminder: Never try running away from anyone in Korea. They will get you, no matter how far you run. [via GorillaMask via Neenja]

9 – There is nothing more amusing and partially adorable than public signage just missing the mark on getting the correct meaning across. My personal favorite from this list: “Touching Wires Causes Instant Death. $200 Fine” [via GorillaMask via Asylum]

10 – First Microsoft tried to buy Yahoo and the flailing internet searcher got mad. Now NewsCorp, which owns MySpace as well as a ton of other properties, is joining in with Microsoft to nail down the seemingly hostile takeover of Yahoo. If this somehow all got approved, I’m starting to smell monopoly claims, and I don’t mean people bickering over Park Place, although why is it I always land on that one and never Boardwalk? What the hell! [via Variety]
