Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer aren’t wasting any time: the “True Blood” twosome are already hunting for their own love nest after getting engaged earlier this month.
The co-stars – who play onscreen lovers psychic Sookie Stackhouse and vampire Bill Compton – hit an open house and checked out two moderately-priced homes with a Realtor in Santa Monica over the weekend.
The pair is said to be looking for a cozy and modern abode with additional bedrooms for Moyer’s two children, Billy, 8, and Lilac, 5.
MICHAEL JACKSON will be buried on August 29th . . . which would have been his 51st birthday. And on that same day, SPIKE LEE is throwing a block party in Brooklyn.
The party takes place from Noon to 5:00 P.M. in Brooklyn’s Fort Greene Park, and it’s free. There’s no word if any celebrities will be there besides Spike.
He says, quote, “It’s going to be just how we do it, Brooklyn-style, I’ll leave it at that. It’s going to be a joyous, festive, celebratory party.”
Spike says he was hit hard by Michael’s death, because they were born of the same era. He adds, quote, “I wanted my Afro to be perfectly round like Michael’s, all that stuff.”
The only time “Mike and Spike” ever collaborated was when Spike directed two videos for “They Don’t Care About Us” back in the mid-1990s.
Spike says the day will end with a song, but not one of Michael’s . . . quote, “At the end, we’ll all sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to Michael.
“We’re going to make sure he hears us, too. All over the world, people are going to be celebrating his birthday. But he’s going to hear Brooklyn; Brooklyn is going to be in the house. Deep.”
A new study released Monday found that 90 percent of U.S. money is laced with traces of cocaine.
A group of scientists tested banknotes from more than 30 cities in five countries, including the U.S., Canada, Brazil, China, and Japan. U.S. and Canadian currency had the highest levels of cocaine, with an average contamination rate of between 85 and 90 percent, while Chinese and Japanese currency had the lowest, between 12 and 20 percent contamination.
“I’m not sure why we’ve seen this apparent increase, but it could be related to the economic downturn, with stressed people turning to cocaine,” said study leader Yuegang Zuo of the University of Massachusetts in Dartmouth.
Zuo said the data can help law enforcement agencies and forensic specialists identify patterns of drug use in a community.
Scientists found that larger cities like Baltimore, Boston and Detroit had among the highest level of cocaine traces, while Salt Lake City had the lowest.
Zuo also pointed out that the amount of cocaine found on the bills is so small that people shouldn’t have any health or legal concerns about handling the paper money.
That will be what you’re asking yourself if you try tweeting or updating your Facebook page from any SEC football game this season.
According to the St. Petersburgh Times, the South Eastern Conference sent a new media policy to its 12 schools and, while all conferences have restrictions on members of the media, this one puts restrictions on the fans! And it all comes down to money.
ESPN and CBS have paid $3 billion combined for rights to broadcast games over the next 15 years and the conference is trying to limit competition by limiting other real-time access to the games – like through a fan’s Twitter and Facebook pages.
Therefore, no fans at the games will be allowed to update their Twitter feeds during games, no pictures can be taken with phones and uploaded to Flickr or Facebook and no videos can be uploaded to YouTube.
Have fun monitoring that one!!
Recently-revitalized Death Row Records is getting into movie production with an independent film about a basketball star who returns to his inner-city neighborhood.
Death Row was recently saved from bankruptcy by Toronto, Canada-based WIDE Awake Entertainment Group.
CEO Lara Lavi is launching the new Death Row Films division with an indie flick called Sons 2 the Grave which tells the cautionary tale of a basketball phenom whose NBA dreams are shattered after he gets shot.
Lara Lavi said, “This film embodies what we’re trying to do with Death Row, to tell human stories that don’t always have happy endings, and that allow us to learn from violence and disenfranchised lives, but not glorify it.
We’re looking at film properties that relate to Boyz in the Hood-type stories, and to power the films with Death Row music.”
Production on Sons 2 the Grave will begin soon.
What’s up everyone!
