Because he’s worth it :))

Hugh Laurie is the new face of L’Oreal 

He is known as grumpy Dr House throughout the world and it’s a part that has made him the highest paid TV star in an American drama series.

And today Hugh Laurie is cast in an unlikely new role, as the male face for L’Oreal Paris Men Expert products.

Hugh said: ‘At first I thought it was a mistake, but then I realised that L’Oreal wasn’t looking for models but for people with strong personalities, who are worth it…and who aren’t afraid to proclaim that using cosmetics can be a very masculine decision after all.’ – I’m sorry my man but that doesn’t sound very House-ish to me :))


Nobilin Branding

The words “design” and “pill packages” are seldom found within the same sentence, so it’s surprising to see so much thought go into Nobilin branding.


Dynamo ‘walks across Thames’

These picture shows magician Dynamo apparently walking on water across the River Thames – and his spokesman claims they are completely genuine.

The 28-year-old Briton apparently took a stroll towards the Houses of Parliament on Saturday night.The stunt was filmed for his new television show, Dynamo: Magician Impossible, which starts on 7 July on Watch.

A spokesman said photographs of the extraordinary feat were not faked.


iPod Magic – Deceptions

Magician Marco Tempest uses  his three iPod Touches to show  his own brand of techno-three-card Monte.


Dimwits

After images like that were seen all across Europe, it turned  out the E-coli came from germinated seeds, and guess where , in Germany, good thing when this started up they were so fast on blaming it on Spain.


Theatre of Dreams

It was not to be one of those special Man United nights..( Fc Barcelona – Man United 3-1)

It would have been to nice to score another trophy this year after the Premier League title, with which Sir Alex Ferguson kept his promise when he first arrived on Old Trafford ,25 Years ago : The important thing is to beat Liverpool :))) is his own words :  “knock Liverpool off their perch ( by winning their 19 title Man United became the most successful team in English football history)

I wonder what Mourinho will say when he will come to replace Fergie on the Theatre of Dreams

This is for all those idiots out there that actually believed the world would come to an end on the 21st of May. – GooSfraba 



Anything but living in a tree is disturbing

A few days ago a few journalists from the Sun, decided to visit Romania, the city of Tandarei to be precise, to see the houses of some gypsyes that received about 800.000 pounds from the UK government as social benefits (illegaly)

Without any further ado  ( I always wanted to say this :) ) this is what they discovered

” A gypsy beverly Hills built with british benefits ” :)))

” But our visit did not go unnoticed by the fiddling gypsies.

As we walked around, a burly man with gold teeth screeched up in a UK-plated right-hand-drive Vauxhall – and snarled: “Take a picture of my house and I will crash into your car. You will die.”

UK-registered vehicles are commonplace in the town.”

This is the quote from the Sun, but I say how the hell does this look like Beverly Hills????

Mind-bog-gglingly useful

The written word erects :))

Artist Marta Minujin, Argentina latest creation - a spiraling, 25-meter-tall (82-foot) tower meant to pay homage to the written word.

Placed in  the Plaza San Martin, in the heart of the Argentine capital - “The Tower of Babel” — built from 30,000 books, most of them donations from some 50 embassies.

Artists view point - “I don’t know why we have to have different languages” ; “It’s really amusing to be able to climb up and down a work of art ” – guess I don’t have an eye for art :)

Michael of Romania

145 years since King Carol I proclaimed himself as “king of Romanians,” King Michael has informed that beginning Tuesday he breaks all connection with the Royal House of Hohenzollern. In this way, he respects the 1921 decision of his ancestor, King Ferdinand I to give a national character to the Romanian Royal House, according to the Royalty press release on Tuesday.

TIME Magazine Cover – 1 Aug  1927

Following the recent decision, the Royal House will no longer be called The House of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen, but the Royal House of Romania. The members of the Royal Family will also give up all their titles given by the heads of the Hohenzollern royal family.

“In accordance with our grandfather’s wishes , the Royal Family will be entitled Of Romania, and beginning with May 10 they will no longer be entitled with the additional Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen House name”

The House of Hohenzollern is one of the most important dynasties in Europe. The Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen is a wing of the Hohenzollern dynasty. Kings Carol I (1881-1914), Ferdinand I of Romania (1912-1921), Mihai I (Michael) of Romania (1927-1930 and 1940-1947) and Carol II of Romania (1930- 1940)


“Where you goin’, black Saab?”

Remember “The Puerto Rican Day” from Seinfeld?

“JERRY: Vandelay. Wait a second. Mr. Pennypacker, if you’re here, and Mr. Vandelay is also here, then who’s watching  the factory?

KRAMER:  The factory?

JERRY:  The Saab factory?

KRAMER:  Jerry, that’s in Sweden.”


“Had to give other people a chance”

Adrian Mutu- reason for using cocaine - “Had to give other people a chance”

After cocaine use, a new tattoo appeared on his arm, a quote from Paulo Coelho: ”A warrior must not lower his head, otherwise he loses sight of the horizon of his dreams”

I think he should have written : A warrior must not lower his head, not even when he is sniffing a line :))))

As far as i am concerned the only miracle is not that the light shows up every year but that the lighter never runs out of gas..

“Oh Jerry…I don’t know sometimes”

Jerry Seinfeld on the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate:

“Well it’s a circus act, it’s an absurd act,You know, it’s a dress-up. It’s a classic English thing of let’s play dress-up. Let’s pretend that these are special people. OK, we’ll all pretend that — that’s what theater is.”
“And that’s what the royal family is — it’s a huge game of pretend. These aren’t special people — its fake outfits, fake phoney hats and gowns.”
“It’s fantastic. We don’t have anything like that.”

Also from Seinfeld :)))


Tape this

Mark Jenkins is a street artist currently living in Washington DC, he uses packing tape to create his base forms using a casting process in which the object is first encased in plastic wrap and then in tape.

Jenkins’ practice of  art is to use the “street as a stage” where passersby become actors. Many of his installations have resulted in intervention by the authorities whom he also regards as actors. Check out some of his works and decide for yourself.
