Teenage girl kills herself over fake spoilers of Harry Potter and the Deathly hallows « Hi, This is Martin -OMG!!

One of the top posts on WordPress today. I don’t know if this is true or not… but for me what is interesting is that on a blog that allows comments, the blog post in question doesn’t have any (commenting closed).

So now I am wondering what really happened on this blog today cause this is sort of unusual.

To be continued…

Newest video swiped off Rihanna’s Def Jam webpage (some people didn’t even edit out the Cover Girl commercial at the end… which I guess is good for Revlon) is hitting the web by storm. Its an off beat tune (imagine saying umbrella with a sort of flare and repeating the last syllable) that might take you some time to like if your into R and B with a dash of Hip Hop.
The comments on this video range from the related to the gossip to unrelated junk.

the video and song dont match but i still loved it



larsism (1 day ago)

that is an astounding video!
But wtf is it with her and releasing albums with half the songs being from the previously released album? Popping em out like twice a year too.

I love the song! Love the video images. Aazing! but for some reason she comes off as as a lil stiff n lackluster. Her dancing is very wooden to me. Her eyes always look dead in closeups like she’s bored. Her dancing,although slylized and well choreographed looks flat…she does not take it anywhere…she is not a fluid dancer or mover. there’s no Fire! Dont Attack this commentary as Rihanna hatin cause is taint. Constructive criticism is not the same as bashing.

Jay-Z’s lyrics are hype, “we Rocka Fella, we fly higher then weather” that explains it all right there. intuitive lyrics like always.


With over 200 comments, you can get a feel for what people really think about it. Overall, there is love. The Beyonce and Rihanna both being in love with Jay-Z saga continues though. I guess that will be something that is talked about (like Jay-Z love child…) with out fail for a long time.


Now there is a remix too (no official video though)

Rihanna is all over Youtube. I don’t see anything that says it is directly from her though. I wonder if they will put it up. Rihanna is like an internet sensation. I like to see how this will turn out into record sales.

Wanted: A Little Reality for Britney – Celebritology

Wanted: A Little Reality for Britney – Celebritology

Well, this is a new place for me to visit and read what other people think about a specific subject. Never really been to the Washington Post for anything and BAM… this article comes my way from a related link on a Yahoo article about Britney Spears’ settlement with the K-Fed. Apparently on the heals of Britney Spears settling divorce with husband Federline, she will be doing a new reality show. The idea; find a new personal assistant to be on her team of which will also include helping her with her comeback.

Will Timbaland (music producer who has said he wanted to help her a few weeks ago get her back on track musically) help in this reality show? Heck, why another reality show? I say, its a good time to sit down, take a break, and write a personal letter (album) not for sales but to re-introduce yourself.

But before that… get on some remixes and put out a street album for the fans (and everyone else watching/listening).

Well… Enough about what I think… there are over 20 comments (some are spam comments…) on the post.

Posted by: renselaas:Liz, I’d play it as straight as possible and give her sound advice. She’s such a train wreck that she’ll ignore 3/4 of whatever you say, and that’s what will make it “good TV.”

As for that sound advice… I’d start with what all of our grandmothers told us about wearing good panties whenever we leave the house.


Posted by: Lisa: Liz, Play it straight this poor girl needs some help. Some issues to be raised in you audition letter:

-Accept that fact that your life has changed: You’re not 21 yr. old single pop star with lots of money and time, but 26 yr. pop star, single mom with two kids to support. California and Louisiana do have Child Protection Laws which they are very happy to enforce.

-The career life of pop star is limited: Your fans do grow up and move on, and a new generation of teenagers doesn’t want anything to do with you (i.e. Janet Jackson).

-Do you really want to end up like Anna Nicole Smith?

Posted by: byoolin: Isn’t it obvious? Bring back K-Fed.


There are some more interesting thoughts that may actually work. The comments are currently closed so your just gonna have to post your ideas somewhere else I guess. I can’t imagine where you could post comments about this subject…
I made a Digg link for it… Looks like there is one already: Britney Spears to star in new reality series from Celebritygasm (what a name LOL). So I’ll just digg that. (although its not about the blogger actually trying out for the show nor does it give the link the want ad on Criagslist).

While submitting (and seeing all the duplicates) I also found this tidbit: Kevin Federline To Make A Reality Show For MTV

Im gonna try something right now… and see what happens. More on this in part Two.

1M User Party Update!… Plus Digg drama… ooooooh

Its an official celebration! And of course there is controversy on Digg because of it. 2 submissions. Neither are from Kevin Rose or from that other guy who name escapes me right now… both made it to the from page but one was first and this one is second BUT the second one actually links to the official blog ( while the first one links to

Granted the original link goes to a site that is about sharing events and so forth, but some will say post to the original article than a article ABOUT the original article. The 3rd comment on the second post by utcursch, basically calls the post linking to the original site spam. Now I am wondering how many comment thumbs down he will get or will he get a bunch of thumbs up. So far he has got 3 thumbs up and no negatives.

As it stands right now… utcursch has THE MOST positive comments (7)! Maybe because the first Digg link on this subject links to a event sharing site..

I don’t think the second digg link is spam, but it could be considered a duplicate.

Lets make this a 2 part-er… I’ll come back to this tomorrow to see what’s up.

Digg link pick quote:

Following up on my last post about reaching the millionth registered user milestone, here are the details for the party that we’re planning as a thank-you for all of your contributions to Digg.
