An interesting fact about today is that it's Geek day. A manifesto was created to celebrate the first Geek Pride Day which included the following list of basic rights and responsibilities of geeks.

Rights:

  1. The right to be even geekier.
  2. The right to not leave your house.
  3. The right to not like football or any other sport.
  4. The right to associate with other nerds.
  5. The right to have few friends (or none at all).
  6. The right to have as many geeky friends as you want.
  7. The right to be out of style.
  8. The right to be overweight and near-sighted.
  9. The right to show off your geekiness.
  10. The right to take over the world.

Responsibilities:

  1. Be a geek, no matter what.
  2. Try to be nerdier than anyone else.
  3. If there is a discussion about something geeky, you must give your opinion.
  4. To save and protect all geeky material.
  5. Do everything you can to show off geeky stuff as a "museum of geekiness."
  6. Don't be a generalized geek. You must specialize in something.
  7. Attend every nerdy movie on opening night and buy every geeky book before anyone else.
  8. Wait in line on every opening night. If you can go in costume or at least with a related T-shirt, all the better.
  9. Never throw away anything related to geekdom.
  10. Try to take over the world!

Google Celebrates PAC-MAN 30th Anniversary

Google is known for changing its homepage logo to celebrate holidays while incorporating some magical coding (which I mistakenly thought was flash) to appeal us “navigators.” But today marks a special occasion for the giant search engine: a playable game in the logo’s place –- specifically, a game of Pacman to mark the its 30th anniversary.

Company will be collectively groining as I’m sure their productivity will spiral down as the game is just as addictive as the original, and as Google’s Marcin Wichary says, “[We] made sure to include PAC-MAN’s original game logic, graphics and sounds, bring back ghosts’ individual personalities, and even recreate original bugs from this 1980s masterpiece.”

To play, just press the “Insert Coin” button and you’re set! My oh my how I love Google.

Mashable blogger Jennifer Van Grove writes about the planned May 31 exodus by many Facebooker's irritated with their lack of privacy. Somehow...I think this is a weird idea, I'm on the fence as of right now. Isn't the idea of Social Media meant to be brazenly narcissistic married with an open invitation for "friends" to know your life's details?

At any rate, click below for the full cover.

Facebook Exodus Planned for May 31: Will You Quit?

Hollywood Sickens Me

Gemma Arterton, known for her role as the bond girl, Strawberry Fields opposite Daniel Craig in Quantum of Solace, has always taken flack for her weight. I'm completely smitten with her especially since her last performance as the euphoric protector "Lo" of Perseus (Sam Worthington) in Clash of the Titans.


On Mail Online, she said, "I'm too fat for fashion." At a size 8, most designers continuously ask if she's going to fit into their clothes.

Says Gemma: ‘It is ridiculous. I went to a designer the other day — who will remain nameless — and he said to me: “I’m amazed that you’re fitting into these sample sizes.”’


She then told the designer: ‘I’m a size eight to ten! I should be amazed that the largest you’re making these is a size six.’


However, she admits: ‘Occasionally, I come home and say to my fiance [stunt driver Stefano Mioni]: “I feel really fat.”


The producers for her new film Prince of Persia starring opposite Jake Gylenhaal have also commented on her weight as she had to pumped up for the role of Tamina in Prince of Perisa: Sands of Time.

I just hope she continues to be a beautifully HEALTHY young woman and not like the disappointing Kate Winslet.

SSSHHH It's A Secret (in Reality?)

Some of you have gotten e-mails from me, but I wanted to make this OFFICIAL...VH1 is looking for outgoing candidates for a relationship based reality talk show. We have to keep the host's name on a hush for confidentiality reasons, but never fear...the host is a WELL known and successful match maker.


The show's focus is on single's dating dilemmas and couples conflict (think we can ALL relate to this one). And for all you superheros concerned with airing your dirty laundry, trust that no unveiling of your secret identify will be given at the stroke of midnight; this taping is strictly for a pilot.

Tweet me, Facebook me, e-mail me...do whatever you need to get on this exclusive list. Consider it an inexpensive trip to a well renowned therapist.

Few say Hov ran Roc-A-Fella into the ground with his narcissistic ideals while others feel that Dame made a good move with using Curren$y as it's resurrecting point (mix tape to drop June 15)
I'm interested to see if there will be some branding confusion with, "The Roc" being dropped left and right.

Check out the interview below and let me know what you think!
