FTL: Rihanna Please Don't Hurt 'Em!


Another For The Ladies Post (though I never tire from looking at Rihanna), this one is lifted this from my homegirl Sham, becauseI figured my lady friends would truly appreciate it. Rihanna did her thing at the Superbowl Pepsi Smash concert in Tampa, and hit them with some boots that are, in my opinion, a harmonious mixture of frightening and fashionable! I know couple of girls who would kill these!

Carnivorous Lampshade Robot Runs On Flies It Catches!

THIS IS CRAZY!

Here's a weird take on renewable energy -- do you have pests? Specifically, houseflies?

Then you might be interested in this "carnivorous lamp," which appears to be designed to catch flies, feed on them and use energy generated through that to power LEDs.

Only problem is it looks like a tiny disco ball or something.

Flies and moths are naturally attracted to light. This lamp shade has holes based on the form of the pitcher plant enabling access for the insects but no escape. Eventually they expire and fall into the microbial fuel cell underneath. This generates the electricity to power a series of LEDs located at the bottom of the shade. These are activated when the house lights are turned off.

Obama Mad Magazine Cover: Spoofs President's First 100 Days


First Marvel Comics, now Mad Magazine. President Barack Obama, who was given the illustrious honor of appearing on the cover of Marvel's "Amazing Spider-Man" comic earlier this month, is now being spoofed courtesy of Mad magazine. Playing off the theme of his 'first 100 days,' the magazine's cover features a stressed-out Obama puffing away on cigarettes as he scans dire newspaper headlines during his "first 100 minutes."

Recession News: 40,000 Jobs Lost Today


New series of posts called "Recession News" as I am completely amazed at the how badly things are going around the world. Some say its the everything coming to and end...I patiently wait, and try and spend and save as much as I can simultaneously. What good is your savings account if everyone is gone. Anyway, with jobs going like hot cakes just having one will be enough to stunt on a motherfu**ah!

WASHINGTON — The recession is killing jobs at an alarming pace, with tens of thousands of new layoffs announced Monday by some of the biggest names in American business _ Pfizer, Caterpillar and Home Depot.

More pink slips, pay freezes and other hits are expected to slam workers in the months ahead as companies desperately look for ways to survive.

...the mounting toll was visible Monday as roughly 40,000 more U.S. workers got the grim news.

Kanye West x Louis Vuitton Sneaker [FASHION]

These should 1 of 3 different designs I believe. I think I love the fact that they're Louis more than anything else...and all red.

PARIS — Marc Jacobs and the Louis Vuitton men’s studio director Paul Helbers have some design competition this season. Kanye West, who was sitting front row at the Vuitton show, has designed a line of five LV sneakers. Only one design, above, was featured in the show — a monochromatic midtop with no frills, save for a quilted flap in the back, all the easier to tuck pants into. “The inspiration came from a jacket with a huge collar in the movie ‘Dune,’ ” West says. “Most sneakers focus on the tongue, so I wanted to do something different.” West knows whereof he speaks: he says he has no idea how many shoes he owns, but he does know that he routinely needs to send shipments off to storage. The LV-meets-Kanye kicks will be available at Louis Vuitton stores in June.

Obama x Hennessy Limited Edition Cognac


Mr. Obama’s election set off a boom in merchandise, official or otherwise, that has come to be called Obamabilia. Among the myriad offerings are coins, plaques, plates, clothing, magazines, newspapers, books, posters, DVDs, jewelry, dolls, greeting cards and jigsaw puzzles.

By some estimates, hundreds of millions of dollars worth of Obama treasures, trinkets and tchotchkes have been sold since Election Day.

As Mr. Obama prepares to be sworn in on Tuesday as the 44th president, the hoopla is reaching a higher level with a round of products and advertisements pegged to the inauguration.

The new items include bottles of Hennessy Cognac, bearing labels that read “44”; commemorative issues of publications like The New Yorker, Newsweek, USA Today and The Washington Post; and T-shirts from the Presidential Inaugural Committee that urge “Be the change.”

LAS VEGAS — James Bond and Dick Tracy fans are likely to queue up for this soon. The new watch phone from LG is one of the coolest gadgets at the CES 2009 show.

At a press event today, LG USA President Michael Ahn showed a working demo of the device. It's a surprisingly slim watch that has a touchscreen phone, 3G and Bluetooth capabilities. It also has a camera that can take photos and small videos.

Worn on the wrist, the phone looks like any ordinary watch displaying the time but when a call comes in, the screen changes. Just raise your hand a little closer to your mouth, press a button and you can talk into the watch through the speakerphone capability.

The watch phone is expected to go into production mid-year though the company did not offer any details on pricing.

"Dexter" Brother And Sister Now Husband-Wife

I've known they were together for a while now, but it still doesn't make it any less weird.

NEW YORK — They play brother and sister on "Dexter." Now in real life, Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter are husband and wife. Hall's spokesman, Craig Bankey, said on Friday that the couple eloped in California on New Year's Eve. They'll walk the red carpet together at the Golden Globe Awards on Sunday _ the first time publicly acknowledging their relationship.

Hall, 37, and Carpenter, 29, just finished the third season of "Dexter," the Showtime series in which Hall plays the murderous title character. They've been quietly dating for about a year and a half.

At their wedding, Carpenter's grandfather's wedding band was attached to her bouquet of white roses.

Zimbabwe introduces $100 Billion Banknotes


I have heard about inflation, but this is just ridiculous! (Approx. 231 million %) The crazy part is, it only equates to about $1 USD. I suppose amidst a war, and little to no gold, oil, or diamonds in the country it pretty difficult to keep it's economic situation alive.

HARARE, Zimbabwe (CNN) -- Zimbabwe's central bank will introduce a $50 billion note -- enough to buy just two loaves of bread -- as a way of fighting cash shortages amid spiraling inflation.

The country's acting finance minister, Patrick Chinamasa, made the announcement in a government gazette released Saturday.

Although Chinamasa did not give the date on which the $50 billion and new $20 billion notes would come into circulation, an official at the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe said the notes would be distributed to all banks by the end of Monday.

Zimbabwe is grappling with hyperinflation now officially estimated at 231 million percent, and its currency is fast losing its value. As of Friday, one U.S. dollar was trading at around ZW$25 billion.

When the government issued a $10 billion note just three weeks ago, it bought 20 loaves of bread. That note now can purchase less than half of one loaf.

Realizing the worthlessness of the currency, the RBZ has allowed most goods and services to be charged in foreign currency. As a result, grocery purchases, government hospital bills, property sales, rent, vegetables and even mobile phone recharge cards are now paid for in foreign currency, as the worthless Zimbabwe dollar virtually ceases to be legal tender.

Once a regional economic model, Zimbabwe is in the throes of an economic crisis, with unemployment running at more than 80 percent and many families unable to afford a square meal. President Robert Mugabe's critics blame his policies for the economic meltdown, but he says the West is sabotaging his efforts.

In order to attract foreign currency, Zimbabwe's central bank has, since September, licensed at least 1,000 shops to sell goods in foreign currency. All mobile phone service providers are now licensed to accept foreign exchange for airtime and other services.

John Robertson, an economist in Zimbabwe, said he's puzzled by the introduction of the $50 billion and $20 billion notes.

"I am not really sure what these notes would be for," he said. "No one now accepts the local currency. It is a waste of resources to print Zimbabwe dollar notes now. Who accepts a currency that loses value by almost 100 percent daily?"

In August, the RBZ slashed ten zeros from the currency. But the zeroes have bounced back with more vigor.

A power-sharing deal between Mugabe and opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai signed in September, and brokered by former South African leader Thabo Mbeki, raised hopes of halting Zimbabwe's plunge into economic destruction.

But the pact has stalled over the allocation of key cabinet ministries, with Tsvangirai accusing Mugabe of grabbing all key posts such as defense, home affairs, local government, foreign affairs and finance.

Obama's First Foreign Trip As President: Canada

If whatever reason you end up being the only person not in D.C. on the 20th, and you live up here in Hollywood North...you may be able to catch a glimpse. Nebby!

WASHINGTON — President-elect Barack Obama plans to take his first international trip to Canada.

Transition aides said Saturday that Obama picked the United States' northern neighbor as his first venture outside the country as president. Aides say they could not discuss the date for the trip or its agenda.

A transition official says aides to the president-elect and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper discussed the trip in recent days. But the official says Obama and Harper themselves have not directly discussed the trip.

Obama meets Monday with Mexican President Felipe Calderon, his first in-person meeting with a world leader since winning election.

U.S. presidents typically use Canada as their first international trip.

"It's good news, a sign of the importance of this relationship to both countries. We look forward to hosting the new president," Kory Teneycke, Harper's press secretary, said from Ottawa. "The fact remains that our two countries are very important trading partners to one another, that we are friends and allies."

I didn't see this coming, but I'm not surprised either.
WASHINGTON — Spider-Man has a new sidekick: The president-elect.

Barack Obama collected Spider-Man comics as a child, so Marvel Comics wanted to give him a "shout-out back" by featuring him in a bonus story, said Joe Quesada, Marvel's editor-in-chief.

"How great is that? The commander in chief to be is actually a nerd in chief," Quesada said. "It was really, really cool to see that we had a geek in the White House. We're all thrilled with that."

The comic starts with Spider-Man's alter-ego Peter Parker taking photographs at the inauguration, before spotting two identical Obamas.

Parker decides "the future president's gonna need Spider-Man," and springs into action, using basketball to determine the real Obama and punching out the impostor.

Obama thanks him with a fist-bump.

Marvel comics have featured most presidents, but generally in walk-on roles, Quesada said.

"I think President Nixon might have appeared on the cover, but not in a good way," he said.

Obama has said that as a child, he collected Spider-Man and Conan the Barbarian comic books. His Senate Web site used to have a photo of him posing in front of a Superman statue.

The Obama story is a bonus in Marvel Comic's Amazing Spider-Man #583, available in comic book shops nationwide on Jan. 14 for $3.99 and is expected to sell out, with half the covers devoted to Obama.

Girl Talk's Gregg Gillis Lets It RiP on Copyfight, Tour Vlogging

From the sampled-based hip-hop of Run-DMC and De La Soul to Gregg Gillis' lift-happy releases under the moniker Girl Talk, creative borrowing has been at the center of a musical copyfight cyclone that threatens to underwhelm us all.

The song remains the same, so to speak: We call it recycling. The man calls it stealing.

Last year, Gillis (pictured), 27, released one of the densest repurposings of all time: Feed the Animals, the fourth Girl Talk album, was built on more than 300 samples.

The fact that Feed the Animals became one of the most acclaimed releases of 2008 is instructive, given that the disc was built wholly from digitally rearranged samples of pop music's hottest hits from across the temporal spectrum.

And it's not like it was hard to spot them: From Ludacris and Outkast to the Spencer Davis Group, the samples stuck out like sore virtual thumbs. That was, after all, the point.

The copyfight mechanism that has claimed Pittsburgh-based Gillis as its center is explored in the forthcoming movie RiP: A Remix Manifesto, which lands online and onscreen March 15. The film, billed as the world's first open source documentary, analyzes the current strain of creative borrowing and capitalization with the help of Cory Doctorow, Lawrence Lessig, Gilberto Gil and more.

Wired.com caught up with Gillis by e-mail to chat about RiP, copyfight, tour vlogging and why he's advertising that he's a PC rather than a Mac.
