Third Album Release!

Beautiful songstress Alicia Keys is out with yet another album this month titled As I Am. During her interview on the Tyra Banks show earlier today, Keys referred to naming her latest album as this as a message for other to take her as she is. From the songs I've listened to up to now, I'm completely enthralled with the album and all it has to offer. Featuring hits like "No One" and "Like you'll never see me again," her third album is sure to come off CD racks incredibly fast just in time for the holidays. Go out and get yourself a copy TODAY.

New Season

Bravo's hit show The Real Housewives of Orange County is back for a third season. In the opener, Vicki (second from left) buys her daughter Briana, an A+ nursing school student, a new Mercedes Benz. Lauri (in white) shares details of her nuptials to millionaire George and shares how everyone is coping since moving her family into his house. Meanwhile Jeana (pink) plans her middle-daughter Kara's graduation party. Tammy (far right) and her daughters, however, face a tragedy. Tammy's ex-husband Lou Knickerbocker recently passed of a massive heart attack. Unfortunately, he left no will behind for his daughters though his "Thai-wife", or "mail-order bride", as his daughters refer to her, will inherit everything. Lindsey, who was living with Lou before his death was kicked out by the "Thai wife" and she is forced to live with older sister Megan. Tammy's water damage on her home has not been fixed yet and in the mean time, the girls live in a studio apartment above the house.
The new wife on the block, Tamra, a realtor and mother of four, also has her drama. Her oldest son, Ryan (21), from a previous marriage brings about tension upon moving back in with her and current husband, Simon, who has issues with Ryan. Tamra remains in between their tension.
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m.
Nip/Tuck or Real Housewives???

Bee Movie Review

While I have yet to see Bee Movie, the new animated Dreamworks film starring Jerry Seinfeld, who also wrote and produced the film, I have been checking up on reviews before heading to the theater. Regardless of the following, Bee Movie garnered $39.33 million on opening weekend.

Here is an excerpt from the LATimes review:

"Bee Movie" feels as if it was cut from a mold made in the '90s.A coming-of-age story about a kid from a conformist society whose individualism and nonconformity cause problems at first but eventually save the day, "Bee Movie" parrots the I-gotta-be-me standard without thinking it through.Barry Benson (Seinfeld), is a young bee fresh out of college about to forcibly enter the workforce.

While flying over Central Park, Barry is separated from the rest of the squadron and lost. He winds up inside the apartment of Vanessa (Renée Zellweger), a florist, who saves Barry from her meathead boyfriend, Ken (Patrick Warburton), when Ken tries to swat him. Grateful, Barry breaks the cardinal rule of bees and talks to Vanessa. Soon she and Barry become close friends, and Barry returns to the hive full of a newfound appreciation for the human way of life. (Cinnabon is high on his list of marvels.)

The jokes are the best thing about it ("I was already a bloodsucking parasite," says a mosquito turned lawyer, played by Chris Rock. "All I needed was the briefcase.") They're also the worst thing about it. ("I just hope she's bee-ish," sighs Barry's anxious mother, played by Kathy Bates, on learning that her son is interested in someone who may or may not be a wasp. Get it?)

This would be OK if "Bee Movie"-- a pun on B movie that goes no further than the title -- weren't also content to remain in the shallow part of the pool, story-wise. The stakes are low. It's a bee movie about nothing."

King Tut's face unveiled to world

(Source: BCC NEWS)

The face of Egypt's most famous ancient ruler, King Tutankhamun, has been put on public display for the first time.
Archaeologists took the mummy from its stone sarcophagus and placed it in a climate-controlled case inside his tomb in Luxor's Valley of the Kings.
The event comes 85 years to the day after the pharaoh's tomb was discovered by British explorer Howard Carter.
Until now, only about 50 living people have seen the face of the boy king, who died more than 3,000 years ago.
As experts lifted Tutankhamun from his coffin they briefly set aside the white linen covering his remains, revealing a shrivelled black face and body.
