The Ghost Of Princess Diana Haunts The Cover Of Newsweek

Filed under: Royals Royce

princess-diana-kate-middleton-newsweek-cover.jpg

Something about this just seems kind of wrong.

No doubt that Prince William has had his mother on the brain ever since he asked Kate Middleton to marry him. Losing Princess Diana in 1997 was a hard blow for the world, but so much more so for her young sons, who lost their chance at having her at the most important moments of their lives.

We're sure the thought of his new bride spending quality time with his mother has also crossed Prince William's mind or two and apparently, the same thought has occurred to the editors of Newsweek. Had she survived that fatal crash 14 years ago, Princess Diana would've been turning 50 this coming Friday. So, in covering the milestone, Newsweek digitally superimposed an age-altered version of Di alongside her daughter-in-law for the cover of the mag.

Part of us is intrigued by the way the digital artist seemed to really capture what Diana would look like if she were still with us. A bigger part is truly shocked that their EIC approved something rather distasteful.

What do U think? Cool, creepy or cheap???

Scientists To Study Shakespeare's Remains For Marijuana

Filed under: DrugsSuper SeniorsListen To This

Anyone who ever read A Midsummer Night’s Dream had to have pondered the amount of pot William Shakespeare smoked.

From fairies to orgies and all that blood, Shakespeare definitely had an overactive imagination.

And now paleontologists are trying to exhume the late wordsmith’s body to prove he had something helping him.

Don’t freak out, lit junkies. No disrespect is intended for the body. Instead of digging him out, they just plan on digitally scanning his bones to look for clues.

How much did he smoke thee, weed? Let us count the ways.

Video Game Sales Hit Four-Year Low

Filed under: Etc.Tech Talk

The month of May wasn't exactly a month of prosperity for the video game industry, as sales hit a four-year low.

L.A. Noire claimed top rank, as it should (have you SEEN those facial animations??), but experts are pointing fingers at Call of Duty: Black Ops for their digital release of extra multiplayer maps and stealing away money from physical copies!

Don't get us wrong: video games still made a huge load of money. But as compared to last year's sales, there was 14% decline — $866.8 mil down to $743.1 mil.

These numbers don't include digital content, though, only physical purchases:

"[The numbers] represent just the new physical portion of the market for video game hardware, software and accessories and not the growing portion of the industry that is comprised of digital format content distribution."

Depending on how people really feel about buying purely digital content, we're not exactly sure this is huge problem. Especially since companies will be saving on disc and packaging materials and all of that. But, video game stores themselves are probably going to be feeling most of the hurt!

What have U been playing lately??

Warner Brothers To Digitally Alter Mike Tyson Tattoo On DVD Of The Hangover, Part 2 To Avoid Legal Trouble!

warner-brothers-to-digitally-alter-mike-tyson-tatto-in-dvd-release-of-the-hangover-part-2-to-avoid-lawsuit

Wow - this is going to crazier than those blacked out bikinis they put on Elizabeth Berkley on the TV version of Showgirls!

After tattoo artist S. Victor Whitmill sued Warner Brothers over ripping off the usage the tribal face ink that he inscribed on Mike Tyson back in 2003 on Ed Helms' character in The Hangover, Part 2, the judge thankfully refused to block the movie's release.

However, in order to prevent anymore legal drama, the studio has now filed new docs asserting that the intend to go in and digitally alter the tattoo's design for the DVD release of the flick!

They claim:

"Warner Bros. does not intend to make any use of the allegedly infringing tattoo after the film ends its run in the theaters because Warner Bros. will digitally alter the film to substitute a different tattoo on Ed Helms’s face."

Wow! We imagine that is going to cost them a pretty penny!

But not as much as another potential lawsuit could have cost them, especially given their massive box office profits, so we suppose it's a win-win!

We wonder what the new design is going to look like though!

We suggest a Born This Way unicorn! LOLz!

What do U think?? Of what should Ed's new tat be?

Tom Hanks Addresses Yale Class Of 2011!

Filed under: InspirationTom Hanks

Honestly, guys. Is there any other actor in Hollywood as charming as Tom Hanks??

We don't think so!

Just watch this address he gave at Yale this past weekend and you'll know exactly why. He's so genuine and funny, we can't help but to have the slightest crush on him! Ha!

His speech was wonderful — advocating digital content and social media, name dropping Rebecca Black, and even trying to coin a phrase ("Yin Yang Thang" LOLz!).

We kinda want him around at all times, just bein' Tom Hanks!

Great speech, Tom! So, what do you say?? Wanna be an intern?? Ha! Let us know!

If U could have any person speak at your graduation, who would it be??

Has Lady GaGa Teamed With Google's New Music Service?!

Filed under: Music MinuteTech TalkLady GaGa

lady-gaga-possibly-teamed-with-google-music-beta

Sneaky, sneaky, Mother Monster!

Earlier this week, during Google's I/O conference, the company unveiled their answer to iTunes, called Google Music Beta, "a cloud-based music service that enables users to store songs in a digital locker and stream them to any Android device," including phones, tablets, laptops and desktops! Furthermore, the company has already acquired the music startup PushLife, which enables users to move their iTunes music libraries to Android devices, and are planning to offer users storage for up to 20,000 songs for free!

Additionally, "users who sign up for the locker service will get free music, similar to how some MP3 players ship with sample tracks."

And although they've yet to make any deals with music labels, we're thinking that they may have secured a partner whose (in the immortal words of Kelis) milkshake will surely bring all the boys to the yard - in Miz Lady GaGa!

The pop star is rumored to have spent several hours shooting a commercial for Google in NYC last weekend, and given her latest innovative means for downloading the upcoming Born This Way early (Farmville?!), we imagine that THIS may be her latest platform to cross-promote her music!

Sounds pretty cool, right?

We sure hope so! Some of the other projects announced during past Google I/O conferences - Google Wave, Google Friend Connect, and Google Chrome App Store, anyone? - have had LESS than stellar success, so maybe a little GaGa-fication is exactly what they need!

What do U think?? Are U interested in Google Music Beta?
