Kanye West and Pamela Anderson

Errrr, ok. I've never understood the appeal of Pam Anderson, in any context. But far be it from me to judge anybody's relationship, much less people I only watch on TV. So good luck with that, guys!

Kanye West and Pamela Anderson together?

There are rumours around the net that Pamela Anderson is dating rap star Kanye West. The couple, if they are just that, are said to have fallen for one another after taking part in a magazine shoot together.

The US magazine, Star reports that Kanye and Pammy were spotted at West Hollywood hot spot, the Chateau Marmont Hotel on Sunset Boulevard.

West, who is up for a bunch of Grammy's is ten years younger that forty year old Pamela.

Pamela Anderson Flying in for Kanye West Pole Dance

It seems that hip-hop icon Kayne West was so impressed with former 'Baywatch' babe Pamela Anderson's moves for his new video, that he has reportedly invited her to perform a sexy pole dance for him at this years Brit Awards.

According to a source, the couple hit it off when Anderson shot a video with Kanye in Las Vegas, and he now wants her to join him on stage while he performs his hit song 'Gold Digger.'

"Pam and Kanye got really close on the shoot so he asked her to help out at the Brits. He wants to fly her over to play the gold digger in the song on stage while he performs. She may play a pole or erotic dancer. Kanye is really excited about the idea," Femalefirst quoted a source, as telling British newspaper Daily Star.

Epiphanny Prince (not Epiphany)

Epiphanny Prince, with two Ns. Remember that name. She just broke Cheryl Miller's high school scoring record for women's basketball, putting down 113 points against Brandeis (yes y'all she represents NY, the Murry Bergtraum school to be exact). She's already signed on to play college ball for Rutgers next year, so we should be hearing a lot more about Epiphanny (not Epiphany).

I'm listening to 1010 WINS and they keep going on about how Epiphanny's coach was unfair to the other team, and he should have showed "good sportsmanship" by benching her before she got that far. Y'all really need to get over yourselves. The whole purpose of high school athletics is teaching kids about getting humiliated.

The real world is cold and heartless. Nobody's gonna bench your bill collectors when you fall behind halfway through the month. So get used to it now, kids!

Epiphanny Prince scores 113 points

Move over, Kobe Bryant, and make room for New York's Epiphanny Prince who scored a record 113 points in a girl's high school game Wednesday.

The 5-foot-10 star hit 54 of 60 shots in leading Murry Bergtraum High School to a 137-32 rout of Louis Brandeis High School, the New York Daily News said.

"I guess this is just once in a lifetime," the 17-year-old Brooklyn senior said after shattering the girls high school scoring record.

"This is amazing to me. When I found out I broke the record, I just started smiling. I couldn't stop smiling."

She broke the record set by Cheryl Miller, who hit 105 points in a 1982 contest.

Here's a very very very detailed blog post about one of Epiphanny's other games this year.

Optus Tennis Challenge

One of those annoyingly addictive games...


Have A-Rod Wake You Up

This is the most cruel joke you can play on someone. Nike is running a promotion were you can have a famous athlete's voice wake you via a phone call. One of the available athlete's is A-Rod. So of course the first thing I did was schedule a call for 8:00am tomorrow to the biggest Red Sox fan I know. Poor guy. I almost feel bad for him.

Go the the Nike 360 site to set a call up.

Super Bowl XL Commercials

There were only a few good ones this year, but just in case you missed them or are interested in seeing them again, google has posted them here. They also posted the GoDaddy commercials that didn't make it to the air.

LEGO Difference Engine

The LEGO Difference Engine is one of the most amazing things I've seen built out of LEGO's.

Before the day of computers and pocket calculators all mathematics was done by hand. Great effort was expended to compose trigonometric and logarithmic tables for navigation, scientific investigation, and engineering purposes.

In the mid-19th century, people began to design machines to automate this error prone process. Many machines of various designs were eventually built. The most famous of these machines is the Babbage Difference Engine.

Because of engineering issues as well as political and personal conflict the Babbage Difference engines construction had to wait until 1991 when the Science Museum in London decided to build the Babbage Difference Engine No.2 for an exhibit on the history of computers.

Babbage's design could evaluate 7th order polynomials to 31 digits of accuracy. I set out to build a working Difference Engine using LEGO parts which could compute 2nd or 3rd order polynomials to 3 or 4 digits.

A very big swear word in Yorkshire, UK

Here's a Friday poser for you: you're a member of a highly-advanced alien civilisation and have just travelled to Earth in your hyperdrive-powered craft intending to enjoy a long-weekend break. The trouble is, you can't decide whether to: a) nip over to rural Idaho, abduct a farmhand and anally probe him before modifying his DNA and dumping him back on the highway; or b) pop down to Billingley in Yorkshire and leave a cryptic message for humanity in a corn field...

You can see it using Google Earth if you have it, or just using Google Maps

Shop attendant Karima Adebibe becomes new Lara Croft

Replacing Angelina Jolie, a shop attendant from London is chosen to become the new flesh and blood of Lara Croft from the Tomb Raider games and films.

from www.fastcar.co.uk:

New Lara Croft Announced!

Angelina Jolie has been replaced as the in-the-flesh variant of Tomb Raider-legend Lara Croft. The new name to note is Karima Adebibe.

Karima who? Well, we can't blame you. Most of the world has never heard of her, but after a series of unlikely twists of fate, she is about to launch from obscurity into stardom: Computer game house Eidos have chosen Karima Adebibe from Bethnal Green as the new flesh and blood representation of Lara Croft.

Replacing the gorgeous Angelina Jolie, Karima will have to attend boot-camp and get clued up on the job as the job as every geek-boy's wet dream pretty damn quick. Up until recently, Karima was a sales assistant at Top Shop in London. She also worked as a model.

Now she has to fill the boots (and other garmets, if you catch our drift) of the world's favourite female action archaeologist.
