Rose Famous Enough to be Arrested

In Sweeden still. The aging pop-star who has struggled since the 90's to put out an album, was found drunk and biting the leg of a Stockholm policeman after arguing loudly with a woman at his hotel lobby. Police will question him after he sobers up and realizes it isn't 1989 anymore and no one cares.

Click but no Pause

Saw the movie "Clicked" starring Adam Sandler with the wife last night. Both of us were surprised that he used pause so infrequently. Its the feature I want. Don't have enough time to do something, pause, do it while everyone is standing still and wow, your efficient. A little too tired to do something, hit pause, take a nap, wake up refreshed. Is it that important to fast-forward through everything? What about taking the batteries out?

French Calling Others Cowards

In a case of the pot calling the kettle black, France's prime minister Dominique de Villepin grew agitated and called Socialist leader Francois Hollande a coward.

While much of the rest of the world is very open to calling the french cowards, I guess they aren't allowed to call themselves cowards.

Gore to Spread Word

Former vice president Al Gore hopes to train 1000 bi-partisan messengers to spread the message of his book "An Inconvenient Truth" to America. Sleep disorder researchers are on the edges of their seats in anticipation of the slideshow. Tom Blankenship of NYU said, "This could be a major breakthrough for those with sleeping problems. Never before have we had a message so sleep inducing and with such a force behind it. "

Rumors are that the audio will be banned on radio for fears it will cause drivers to fall asleep at the wheel and cause accidents.

Only Leak is No Leak

Federline Leaks Becoming More Obvious...

...Or Stupid

Kevin Federline is reportedly in a huff over Britney Spears' new manny/bodyguard who has taken over some of K-Feds old jobs (no plausible information as to what those may have been), been seen buying Britney flowers and helping her redecorate the house (that she paid for) and getting rid of the K-Fed junk. Kevin supposedly can't think about his "music" in the now floral and pink decor. While we can't thank Britney for bringing more Federline offspring into the world, we must now thank her for any delays of K-Fed singles or albums.

In any event, all of this news wreaks of coming from the Federline camp.

The Radio On The Bus Spews Out Ads, Spews Out Ads...

In yesterdays Wall Street Journal, it was reported that companies are vying for the rights to be the official radio station on school busses. In between ads for FrankenBerries and XBox360's there would preumably be some educational programming. The programming should act as a distraction to the stoned bus driver and the big kids picking on the little ones, but is it really necessary to blast a radio over a bunch of kids, or have school busses become quiter than their adult cousins while the kids are IM-ing to their seatmate via SMS?

High Speed Driving Mecca Lawrence, KS Banning Phones from Roads

Trying to one-up the other cell phone laws, Lawrence Kansas that hotbed of traffic, highspeed driving and tiny soccer moms in huge SUVs talking on their handheld, wants to ban phones in cars regardless of it is handsfree or not. T-Mobile has already spoken up against the concept claiming there are much bigger distractions, such as fast food, kids in the back seat and (who thought of this as good roadside food) Cinnabon. Somewhat more surprising was that there were enough drivers or even cell coverage in that section of tornado-alley.

Vonage Pulls a Kerry

Pulling a page from the failed Democratic candidate for president, John Kerry (no not trying to have a bore-off with Al Gore) Vonage has now flip-flopped to a position of saying they will go after consumer investors who were sllocated shares of their IPO and refuse or fail to pay. This isn't good news for the consumer as the shares have dropped like a cement footed mobster in the Hudson River, and only in a couple weeks.

Best hope for Vonage (VG) is a strong stock bounce, which isn't very likely unless there is some takeover rumor, so they can at least profit from the shares.
