Scientists Engineer Bullet-Proof Skin!

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueScience!

Bullet Proof vest

Forget bullet-proof vests! We want bullet-proof skin!

Dutch scientists have created a skin made with goat's milk packed with spider-silk proteins that is able to STOP bullets fired at reduced speeds!

Key word being "reduced", as the super-human skin can not withstand a bullet from a .22 caliber rifle shot yet, but maybe one day!

Researchers have already grown human skin around the strengthened material, but need more time to determine whether or not the bullet-proof skin can actually be engineered into humans.

We're totally picturing a genius, but troubled scientist begging his financiers for more money, which is being denied after one crucial test went wrong. Now he must be the first human test subject for the risky procedure which inadvertently turns him into a bullet-proof super villain bent on getting revenge against those who threatened his life's work!

If only science was actually THAT exciting! LOL!

T.I. Writes Another Letter From Prison!

ti-writes-new-letter-from-prison

Only a few more months!

T.I. is currently serving an 11-month stint behind bars in Arkansas for violating his probation, and recently decided to kill some time behind bars by writing this thoughtful message that has since been posted on his website!

He writes:

What up world? Been a minute. I’d like to thank you all for the thousands of letters, cards, books, pictures and words of encouragement. I’m truly grateful. I’m sure you already know I’m nearing the end of this chapter of my life, and looking forward to taking all of the things I’ve learned with me while leaving all the rest of the “BS” behind. I’ve been tuned in somewhat to what’s been happening out there. I can’t even begin to tell y’all how much being on the outside looking in, having to witness all that’s going on (and not going on) in the game affects me. Not being able to do what I love especially. It’s like a whole other sentence within itself. But I really do appreciate all the love, respect, shout outs and salutations during this very difficult period in my life. Everybody from da homies Weezy, Killa Mike, R. Rozay my lil bruh B.o.B, Terrence J (106 & Park) and my “durty” Nelly. Regardless of whether the gestures were the greatest or the smallest, they still meant the world to me. REAL TALK. The separation from my art has definitely sparked an inferno of inspiration that will soon be felt by all. As a matter of fact, to show my appreciation to those that have been in support of me and granted the requests of TEAM T.I. I’ll be releasing a record in the near future (couple of weeks tops) to hold y’all over til I get back in action. During this time of seclusion I have developed a mind full of thoughts, ideas, plans and strategies of change to incorporate into my professional endeavors, as well as my personal lifestyle. But none of them is as strong as my determination to conquer my own imperfections and my will to WIN NO MATTER WHAT!!!

I love, respect and appreciate all those who have stood beside me and I have accepted those you didn’t. But one things for sure and two for certain. As long as the Most High blesses me with the ability to live and breathe….My campaign will continue!!! Stronger, smarter, bigger and better than ever. For those that doubt that…See me when they free me.

Love King

Well, well, well!

Time in the big house has made him pensive, hasn't it?

We appreciate the thoughtfulness behind his words here, and hopefully this means that once he's out, he'll be STAYING OUT for good this time!

Hang in there!

And we can't wait to hear the new material!

New Girls Aloud Coming In JANUARY!

Filed under: Nadine CoyleGirls AloudCheryl ColeX Factor

girls-aloud-to-reunite-in-january-of-2012

All right! The countdown is ON!

Although we're sure Cheryl Cole's firing from the US X Factor couldn't have been easy, it very well may have been the best thing for her former group, Girls Aloud, because sources close to them have revealed that all of its members have agreed to reunite in six months to begin recording new material!

The insider explains:

"All is forgiven between Nadine and the rest of the band. It's all water under the bridge. They're excited they're going to be making a fresh start together on this next adventure of their lives. In six months' time, it'll be back to work as normal - they are itching to get back in the studio. Cheryl has been through a lot worse than the US X Factor. She's survived a marriage breakdown and almost died of malaria. She's made of tougher stuff. In fact, they have all got so much more experience between them now. They have all been through so much and come out fighting, and they will reflect this in their tracks."

Hell yeah!

That's the spirit, girls! Take all of that frustration and anger and channel that into some AMAZING music!

We have a feeling that they're going to back with a vengeance! And better than ever!

We can't wait!

What do U think?? Are U excited for the return of Girls Aloud??

Zooey Deschanel's Doing The Soundtrack For Winnie The Pooh! Check Out A Preview HERE!

Oh, man! We have a feeling that she's going to be giving Jack Johnson's Curious George album a run for its money!

Zooey Deschanel will apparently be contributing a few original songs for the upcoming reboot of Winnie The Pooh, and spoke out a bit about what drew her to the classic Disney animation!

Check out her comments, as well as a preview of the new song So Long (above)!

Goodness, her voice is just so lovely and soothing! We have a feeling it's going to be a perfect fit for the tone of this movie!

We're so excited!

Eddie Murphy Wants To Do Stand-Up Again

Filed under: Eddie Murphy

wenn5483450195.jpg

Whoa, is it the '80s again??

Eddie Murphy is planning to return to the stage as a stand-up comedian, but says he needs at least a year to get enough material.

The Shrek star says:

"Within the last six months or so, I started getting an itch to do it again. I started writing stuff… I was like, 'I could go and do 15, 20 minutes right now. Maybe in a couple of months I'll start working out again'. But it'll take a year before I'm ready to go on the road… It's gonna take at least a year to get the rust off; 20 years of rust."

We hope he does more classic SNL comedy and less Nutty Professor crap!
