Adele Music Helps Surgery Patients Get Well

Filed under: AdeleMedicineSurgery

Adele music surgery study

Feeling under the weather? Get well with Adele!

A study has found that surgery patients listening to tunes like Someone Like You have less anxiety about the operation AND as a result of being calmer, "recover more quickly."

John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford examined the stress levels of 96 patients and found levels in those listening to enjoyable music were 29% lower than those laying in silence. Study leader Hazim Sadideen explained:

"Undergoing surgery can be a stressful experience for patients and finding ways of making them more comfortable should be our goal as clinicians. There are also good medical reasons — calmer patients may cope better with pain and recover more quickly."

Sometimes music, just like laughter, really is the best medicine.

Has Kris Humphries Appointed Himself As His Own Lawyer??

Kris Humphries Is His Own Lawyer

Kris! What are you doing?? Do you want to have a chance at all??

HIRE A LAWYER!!

Apparently Kris Humphries wanted to appoint his Minnesota business lawyer to represent him in his divorce with Kim Kardashian.

The problem is that in Cali, an out of state lawyer has to have a local attorney by his side (why?). So he hired one.

That lawyer has since dropped out.

So without a sponsor, Kris is without any lawyers!

Meanwhile, Kim has hired Hollywood's most infamous divorce laywer (of course.) Laura Wasser, who has a long list of celebrity divorces.

Just hire a new lawyer, Kris. It's easy. Don't put yourself through slaughter!

Squeeze! Feel the burn!

Nothing like getting fit while working! Jason Segel and Leslie Mann were spotted filming a workout scene for their upcoming Judd Apatow movie This is Forty.

We're not sure if Leslie is getting more of an ab workout from doing those crunches or from laughing so much at whatever Jason is telling her. Whatever the case may be, they make working out look fun!

LOLz! Just another day on the job.

Laughter & Music May Help Lower Blood Pressure

Laughter & Music May Help Lower Blood Pressure

First of all, if you’re not laughing and listening to a lot of music you’re not living life correctly!

But if you need any more convincing, researchers have found that listening to music and laughing at jokes could lower your blood pressure. They found that over the course of three months, people who listened to music and laughed had a 5% to 15% lower risk of death from heart disease or stroke than those who didn't.

"I think there's definitely a physiological effect going on, some sort of mind-heart connection," said Michael Miller, M.D., director of preventive cardiology at the University of Maryland Medical Center.

Here’s the best part about all of this — you can do this on your own all the time every day forever and ever.

Seriously, listen to music and laugh!! You’re health depends on it!

Last Comic Standing Comedian Mike DeStefano Has Passed Away

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

mike destefano has passed away

So tragic after he had overcome so much!

Comedian Mike DeStefano, who was a finalist on last season's Last Comic Standing, passed away last night after reportedly suffering a massive heart attack.

DeStefano had been a heroin addict who cleaned himself up and stayed clean for 11 years. He gave back by performing for free at rehab centers and prisons.

Here's what his rep had to say in a statement:

"It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of a dear friend, a true gentleman, a great comic, and a fierce warrior, Mike DeStefano."

"Mike had a lot of wisdom to share with the world from his own life lessons and he always did it with laughter and a smile."

"It’s hard to think that there won’t be any more 'hey sweetheart' calls, because Mike always made my day with his mix of kindness and warmth AND profanity filled rants against the wrongs of the world. He was the genuine article. We love you and will miss you, Mike."

Our thoughts are with Mike's family, friends, and fellow comedians during this difficult time.

Thank you for making the world laugh, Mike. You will be missed.

Laughter and coffee! It's a match made in heaven!

Here's a peek of the Us Weekly article that features the blossoming romance between Taylor Swift and Jake Gyllenhaal, or as we like to call them, Swiftenhaal!

The magazine shows the couple having the time of their lives, enjoying each other's company, all while visiting coffee shops in Taylor's hometown of Nashville. The two even traveled to New York to visit Jake's sister Maggie Gyllenhaal, where Taylor is pictured having a play date with Jake's niece, Ramona.

Wow, maybe things are suddenly getting "serious!"

You two look good together.
