Verizon Droid Razr Beats the iPhone

Well, not really. At least not yet, but could it? I've been hearing all about this new Razr on Verizon Wireless. Remember the Motorola Razr? This may seem like ancient times when it comes to wireless technology, but a few years back not everyone had Smartphones. A few years before that no one had heard of the Appple iPhone. Now everyone seems to have one or the other. In the old days, thin was in. The Razr ruled. It was a super thin phone that came in just about every color imaginable. Then the iPhone came out and everyone had to be cool and have all these functions in their phones. No one bought razrs anymore. When AT&T was the only game in town for the iPhone, carriers like Verizon developed other smartphones. This included many new phones from Motorola like several versions of the Droid. Now they went and combined things the people loved about the Razr and get the new Droid RAZR smartphone. Good branding, huh? And I've seen more hype for this thing on Twitter than any phone since, well.. whatever the last iPhone was ( iPhone 4s?)

Now, everyone knows we love Apple and all the "i" things around Here. Steve Jobs died and RV cried. And we've been fooled before. We remember when the Verizon LG Voyager could compete with the iPhone. HAHAHAHAHA. And when it came time to bring you the Verizon LG Voyager Review, it turned out there were a lot of problems with that phone. There are definitely a lot of good smartphones. And Androids have been doing very well in sales, but it's hard to come out and say any new phone is really going to compete with the iPhone. But maybe the Droid Razr will.

So Conrad Murray Killed Michael Accident...Says the Jury

Well all the big shit about the Conrad Murray trial is done (or at least the initial court part.)  It's been one of those stories where you can't avoid seeing as it's thrown in your face on every channel and every news or gossip website.  As the verdict came down as guilty, crowds roared within seconds as people continue to act like a direct family member was involved and now their lives will change forever.

Pretty much Conrad Murray screwed up as a doctor, now he's getting punished for it, that's about it.  Michael Jackson isn't going to come moonwalking back to life to the tune of "Moonwalker" which seems to be what some people think based on their reactions.  These people have nothing better to do but stand outside with signs like it's going to make a difference. 

Now everyone sits and waits for a couple of weeks until everyone plans their life around and puts up countdown clocks until Murray's sentencing.  Most of these people hated Michael Jackson when he was alive yet are his biggest supporters when it's time for a dramatic trial.  Devon Lohan backed up Michael Jackson's iconic status years before he died, so all this bullshit drama is a waste of time to us.  But no doubt it will be the hottest tabloid story for months to come.  We'll watch some classic Michael Jackson videos instead:

Confirmed: Lindsay Lohan Set to Pose Nude for Playboy!

Well the defining moment for our least the here.  TMZ is reporting that Lindsay Lohan has agreed to pose for Playboy for a smooth 1 million bucks.  I guess now that her acting career is long gone, but since she's an even bigger celebrity due to always getting arrested and then sentenced etc., the time was right to cash in and get naked already.  This news has been years in the making, hell FOUR YEARS ago this very site reported that Lohan was in talks to be in a Playboy movie.

Will there still be interest in seeing her naked since A. she's not the star in movies that she once was, and B. she's  done a couple of semi nude shoots already for various publications (Lindsay Lohan Topless Pics in New York Magazine)  Playboy itself has been in the crapper for years now, either providing us with naked women we've never heard of, or featuring women we've heard of but don't get naked in the spread (::cough:: Olivia Munn ::cough::)  The stir cause by finally getting Lohan naked will probably be enough to get some interest going again, but they would definitely have to follow it up with more celebrities that people actually give a shit about getting naked. 

Apparently money is the key (shocker,) as Lohan turned down 750k to take it all off, but the million dollar point was just right.  So take notes Playboy, actresses who know they have tons of fans wanting them to get naked want to get paid to do so, so pay up and get the job done.  Word is that Lindsay has already started her nude shoot, so before long we will see if Playboy can deliver the Lindsay Lohan nude pictorial that her fans have waited years for.

The Best Halloween Episodes EVER!

Halloween. One week away. As a kid, anytime Halloween or Christmas rolled around you knew that all the awesome shows on TV would have a special episode around that holiday. And Halloween episodes were always the best, so here we go, time to revisit some of the very best!

The Adventures Of Pete & Pete
I remember actually trying to do as much trick or treating as Pete and Pete did, always ended in failure and exhaustion. I never filled an entire pillowcase.

South Park
Always gory and hilarious. Haven't had a good Halloween South Park in awhile, hoping this week we get a good one.

The Simpsons
Treehouse Of Horror
Some may say The Simpsons are the kings of Halloween episodes. But really, The Simpsons hasn't been funny in years, YEARS. But, still have to give them props for Halloween goodness.

Home Improvement
This show had some of the very best Halloween episodes that have ever happened. It never failed to deliver on the holiday episodes.

The very BEST at Halloween episodes. Hands down, no contest.

Tony Bennett + Lady Gaga = Musical Awesomeness

Tony Bennett is one of the old school bad asses in music that can be in his 80's and still own audiences.  Not only has he been a legend for years with a ton of classic albums released over the years, but he's still releasing albums that have the old school vibe but mixed with current performers.  In "Duets 2" Bennett probably does one of the most odd yet awesome collaborations ever, as he joins the one and only Lady Gaga to bring us "The Lady is a Tramp."

Now there are tons of Gaga haters out there who trash everything she does, but our crew has always agreed that Gaga is already an icon and will continue to be one of the biggest superstars in music for years to come.  This song backs up that claim even more, as Gaga shows she can hang old school style with a guy who's had legendary status for years.  This song is far from anything we've heard from Gaga before, but serves as a reminder that Gaga is a classically trained singer and musician, and is no joke when it comes to music.

Tony's album also has a mention worthy duet with Amy Winehouse, which took place just before her death.  Winehouse sounds like she came from the same era as Tony Bennett, so hearing those two together wasn't as shocking as Gaga, but still awesome to hear.  To add to it all, there is actually a Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga music video to go along with the song.  With no flashy effects or usual music video craziness, this is a great straight up in the studio singing the song type video.  Check it out below:
