Slash, Now Producing Horror Films

Slash admits that he is into horror films. So it is no surprise that he is now into producing one. Following in the footsteps of musician turned filmmaker Rob Zombie, Slash is starting his own production company. In association with Scout Productions (of films like Transsiberian and Fog of War), Slash has set up the aptly named Slasher Films banner to produce edgy contemporary horror fare with a nod to the thrillers of the 70's and 80's. Their first project has already been lined up with Nothing to Fear, a horror/thriller following a family as it looks for a big change by moving to a small town in rural Kansas only to encounter an ancient demon with an insatiable blood lust.

Jonathan W.C. Mills wrote the screenplay which should begin shooting early next year, but a director hasn't been revealed just yet. Here's what Slash had to say about his new endeavor, "I've always been a huge horror fan and creating films that take you back to the days where horror movies actually scared the hell out of you is something I've always wanted to do. My audience is made up of young, edgy, discerning consumers, with an appetite for quality and a hint of anarchy." That's what way to put it, I guess. Though I'm not a fan of the horror genre, I've found some decent throwback horror flicks like House of the Devil to be quite good. It'll be interesting to see if Slash can bring together the right talent for some fresh horror.

What's Up with ABS CBN channel 2?

I can't help it. I've been thinking for the past few weeks if I should write something about this. Well, at first, I said that I'll just let it go. But I just can't stand it. What's going on ABS CBN channel 2???

Have you seen the movie "Avatar"? How about that hit musical TV series "Glee"? And who doesn't know the movie "Twilight"? So what's the problem? Here's the problem. ABS CBN made TV series similar to these movies/shows. They made a tv series called "Noah" which is equivalent to "Avatar". How about this series "Idol". Definitely 100% copycat of "Glee". And their new series, "Imortal". Yup, it's about vampires. Concept taken from Twilight.

Can't they make their own concepts? Why do we need to copy from these movies/shows? Because they were a hit? Here's a tip, why not make an original concept. Something that wasn't shown on the big screen or even on TV. Difficult, but could be worth it. Better yet, lessen these drama series. It's from the afternoon till evening. Maybe bring back some sitcoms. Our own lives is a drama itself so maybe it's time to think away from these drama series. Right?

The New American Idol Judges

It's official: After months of shakeups and rumors, American Idol announced in a live press conference this afternoon that Aerosmith's Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and mainstay Randy Jackson would serve as judges for Idol's 10th season. The show returns to Fox in January. Idol producers also revealed that Interscope Geffen A&M chairman and record producer Jimmy Iovine would serve as a mentor to the new batch of contestants. Since season nine, judges Simon Cowell, Ellen DeGeneres and Kara DioGuardi have all exited the program, leading to rumors of Chris Isaak, Shania Twain, Elton John and Justin Timberlake as replacements.

"I've been on tour for most of my life in a band with four guys who judge me every day," Tyler said in a statement. "Sometimes it hurt, but it only made me stronger. I want to give everybody a little love before I decide who goes home heartbroken. If you don't like what I say, don't get mad, get better."

Tyler's band mates in Aerosmith all but confirmed that he would be joining Idol; Tyler himself said "I'm doing it" when asked in early August. Tyler's role on the show throws the future of Aerosmith in question, but it's clear that the singer will finally be focusing on "Brand Tyler". He also plans to release his first ever solo single, "Love Lies," next month.

Kinky Kim Filthy Love-Doll

Ok, anybody there who wants to.. umm.. you know, having sexy time with Kim Kardashian? For sure there are a lot of guys out there who are dying to. Well, here's your chance. I mean, the closest that you'll get on doing sexy time with Kim. Unfortunately, not the actual Kim. A love-doll Kim.

Yes, dubbed as "The Superstars Series Love-Doll", the Kinky Kim Filthy Love-Doll is deemed by the Kardashian camp as a product that is marketed based on the their clients' popularity, image, and marketability. The likeness and the Catch Phrases all around the Doll's box is presumed as phrases maliciously representing Kim Kardashian. In fact, the Back-Box Portion where the picture of the Love Doll lying on a bed with lettuce covering the Doll's Privates had the phrase "Guess What? No More Bush!".

But hold your horses. Kim Kardashian has unleashed her legal team unto an Adult Blow-up Doll manufacturing company to put a halt to the production of a Love-Doll allegedly made in her likeness. The absence of any form of legal, business, or profit-sharing agreement between the Real Kim and the makers of the Kinky Kim (Pipedream Inc) makes the product's legality questionable therefore a cease order was ushered out by Kardashian legal hound-dogs.

So it seems like it's going to be a limited edition doll.

Things You Should Never Reveal On Facebook

I read an article about things that should not be reveled on facebook and I would like it to share with you guys.

The whole social networking phenomenon has millions of Americans sharing their photos, favorite songs and details about their class reunions on Facebook, MySpace, Twitter and dozens of similar sites. But there are a handful of personal details that you should never say if you don't want criminals — cyber or otherwise — to rob you blind, according to Beth Givens, executive director of the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse.

The folks at also say that ill-advised Facebook postings increasingly can get your insurance cancelled or cause you to pay dramatically more for everything from auto to life insurance coverage. By now almost everybody knows that those drunken party photos could cost you a job, too.

You can certainly enjoy networking and sharing photos, but you should know that sharing some information puts you at risk. What should you never say on Facebook, Twitter or any other social networking site?

Your Birth Date and Place

Sure, you can say what day you were born, but if you provide the year and where you were born too, you've just given identity thieves a key to stealing your financial life, said Givens. A study done by Carnegie Mellon showed that a date and place of birth could be used to predict most — and sometimes all — of the numbers in your Social Security number, she said.

Vacation Plans

There may be a better way to say "Rob me, please" than posting something along the lines of: "Count-down to Maui! Two days and Ritz Carlton, here we come!" on Twitter. But it's hard to think of one. Post the photos on Facebook when you return, if you like. But don't invite criminals in by telling them specifically when you'll be gone.

Home Address

Do I have to elaborate? A study recently released by the Ponemon Institute found that users of Social Media sites were at greater risk of physical and identity theft because of the information they were sharing. Some 40% listed their home address on the sites; 65% didn't even attempt to block out strangers with privacy settings. And 60% said they weren't confident that their "friends" were really just people they know.


You may hate your job; lie on your taxes; or be a recreational user of illicit drugs, but this is no place to confess. Employers commonly peruse social networking sites to determine who to hire — and, sometimes, who to fire. Need proof? In just the past few weeks, an emergency dispatcher was fired in Wisconsin for revealing drug use; a waitress got canned for complaining about customers and the Pittsburgh Pirate's mascot was dumped for bashing the team on Facebook. One study done last year estimated that 8% of companies fired someone for "misuse" of social media.

Password Clues

If you've got online accounts, you've probably answered a dozen different security questions, telling your bank or brokerage firm your Mom's maiden name; the church you were married in; or the name of your favorite song. Got that same stuff on the information page of your Facebook profile? You're giving crooks an easy way to guess your passwords.

Risky Behaviors

You take your classic Camaro out for street racing, soar above the hills in a hang glider, or smoke like a chimney? Insurers are increasingly turning to the web to figure out whether their applicants and customers are putting their lives or property at risk, according to So far, there's no efficient way to collect the data, so cancellations and rate hikes are rare. But the technology is fast evolving, according to a paper written by Celent, a financial services research and consulting firm.

Fatal Accident at the San Marino Grand Prix

Shoya Tomizawa, a Japanese motorcycle racer just died in an accident during the 12th lap of the San Marino Grand Prix. He fell on Turn 10 when his rear tire lost grip. He was then hit by the motorbikes of Scott Redding and Alex de Angelis in which he suffered cranial, thoracic and abdominal trauma. He was initially taken to the circuit's medical centre, before being transferred to hospital in Riccione. He died from his injuries at 14:20 local time in hospital, aged 19. My question is, is this all worth doing and risking ones life for winning a race?
