Ha!!! I love green bananas!!

I can barely stomach ripe bananas! Seriously!! When I crave a banana it's ALWYS  a green one! And I always get the same quote, "Green bananas will make your stomach hurt!" Ha! Dr. Mercola....one of the highly recognized health guru's o' stuff to eat says differently!

MeatLoaf - GoPhone Commercial!!!!! OMG!!!

This is SOOOO freakin' AWESOME!!!!!


Starbuck can't 'make the bucks' musically!

Well, well, well! Didn't we think Starbucks could do no wrong? Oopsie.....guess even 'they' can't figure out the new media music industry!

Starbucks to stop serving music


Coffee giant's Music label dismantles after 1 year








Starbucks



After just a year of operation, Starbucks is getting out of the recorded music business.

Operations for the coffee vendor's label, Hear Music, which released albums by Paul McCartney, Joni Mitchell and James Taylor last year, are being turned over to Concord Music Group, which has handled back shop operations for the imprint.

Ken Lombard,
who ran Hear Music as president of Starbucks Entertainment, has left
the company. Chris Bruzzo, chief technology officer, has been promoted
to senior vice president and will assume the leadership helm of the
Entertainment category.

Starbucks referred to the moves as a
restructuring of its entertainment business to focus on digital
strategy and core content with music and books. Starbucks will look for
ways to increase wi-fi related offerings and other in-store technology.

Starbucks will continue to work with the William Morris Agency to select book offerings for its stores.

Concord
Music Group has a family of labels including Concord, Fantasy and Stax.
Unlike other music groups, the individual labels do not have specific
chiefs.

Hear Music has about four or five more releases on its slate for 2008, among them a June release from Brit roots R&B singer James Hunter.

Hear and Concord most famously partnered on Ray Charles' final album, "Genius Loves Company," which sold millions and won four Grammy Awards.

How Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy's Son Recovered From Autism

Saw this and was VERY interested! Although there is no autism in my family, the idea that a pediatric vaccines could trigger a predisposition is frightening! Got the email from Dr. Mercola!


How Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy's Son Recovered From Autism



autism, ASD, aspberger's, jim carrey, jenny mccarthy, evanIn
this CNN op-ed piece, actors Jim Carrey and Jenny McCarthy reflect on
their son’s recovery from autism in light of the recent federal court
decision which conceded that vaccines could have contributed to another
child’s autistic condition.


Carrey and McCarthy’s son, Evan, has been healed thanks to
breakthroughs that may not be scientifically proven, but have
definitely helped, such as a gluten-free, casein-free diet, vitamin
supplementation, detox of metals, and anti-fungals for the yeast
overgrowths that plagued his intestines. Once his neurological function
was recovered through these medical treatments, speech therapy and
applied behavior analysis helped him learn the skills he could not
learn while he was frozen in autism.


When Evan was re-evaluated after these treatments, state
workers were amazed by his improvement. But although Evan is now 5, not
a single member of the CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics, or any
other health authority has asked to evaluate and understand how Evan
recovered from autism. Instead, they simply posit that he was
misdiagnosed and never had autism to begin with.


Carrey and McCarthy believe that autism is an environmental
illness, and that while vaccines are not the only environmental
trigger, they do play a major role. Even if the CDC is not convinced of
a link between vaccines and autism, changing the vaccine schedule
should be seriously considered as a precautionary measure.

Charlton Heston Dead! :(

I just got this from a friend! It's weird! I met him and sang for him!! He was SUCH an awesome guy!! He even posed for a picture with me!!! Here's that email:

I just picked up on this and wanted to make it known. I had sent a
Christmas card to Mr. Heston in 2006 with an explanation of how we
might wish him to play a small role in the film series we are trying
to make happen this year. It seems so long ago so much has happened
since, but I do remember getting a response back. One of our group
actually played a role with Charlton. We discussed that several years ago.

Charlton Heston dead at 84

Charlton Heston, who won the 1959 best actor Oscar as the
chariot-racing "Ben-Hur" and portrayed Moses, Michelangelo, El Cid and
other heroic figures in movie epics of the '50s and '60s, has died. He
was 84.

The actor died Saturday night at his home in Beverly Hills with his
wife Lydia at his side, family spokesman Bill Powers said.

Powers declined to comment on the cause of death or provide further
details.

Heston revealed in 2002 that he had symptoms consistent with
Alzheimer's disease, saying, "I must reconcile courage and surrender
in equal measure."

Clooney -Core

Okay, I'm in the dark! Had no idea Clooney went fi-core last fall!! So why was he coming out as one of the "powerhouses" to encourage SAG not to strike in June? Hmmmmm............ . Well, he's got an Oscar so he can do what he wants. WAIT!! He went fi-core with the WGA!!! Wow!!! I guess the WGA has more power than SAG! Read the article to see WHY I say that!!!!! Okay...now I feel sorry for George!! Heck it sounds like he rewrote the script completely!! So he doesn't get credit for that?? That's NOT RIGHT!!!
