The Idle Hands are proud to announce the release of their debut full-length album The Hearts We Broke On The Way To The Show, due out September 8th on Pretty Kids Collective records.

The Idle Hands is from Minneapolis band made up of Irish ex-pats and Midwest natives have written an impressive record filled with songs about lust and longing, sordid affairs, brutal regrets, and the after parties that fuel them. Without even so much as trying their engaging first single “Loaded” managed to find itself on local radio, touted as “Song Of The Day” and entered into heavy rotation on the Twin Cities indie/alt leaning NPR station The Current.

The forthcoming release features tracks from the Loaded EP. Some of The Idle Hands song is recorded in L.A. with producer Mark Needham (The Killers, Bloc Party) and new tracks mixed and produced by Tony Lash (the Dandy Warhols, Elliott Smith) and engineered by the likes of Erik Applewick (Tapes ‘n Tapes) and Chad Weiss (Mason Jennings). The Hearts We Broke On The Way To The Show is akin to a familiar friend that keeps you on your toes, spanning glam, neo New Wave, and disco with nods to everyone from Berlin era Bowie to pre Dig! Dandy’s.

So who are The Idle Hands and how did they come to be? As the story goes, Front-man Ciaran and his brother Criostoir (bass) left the Emerald Isle and found themselves in a land of snow, holed up in a studio making music with their friends. The boy/girl/boy/girl/boy line-up is rounded out by Eileen (keys), her traveling companion Emma (guitar), and rhythm setter Nick on the drums. The release date will be on the 8th of September by the Pretty Kids Collective records. A collection of songs ranging from lust and longing, brutal regrets, dirty affairs, and of what crazed adults do during the after parties.

Featured song from the tracks, which is recorded in L.A. and produced by Mark Needham, are from the Loaded EP. New tracks mixed and produced by Tony Lash are also included, engineered by the likes of Erik Apllewick and Chad Weiss. The “The Hearts We Broke On The Way To The Show” is a bit for mature listeners only, the album would surely keep dancers on their toes for its upbeat, neo-New Wave Disco style. This album would probably be enjoyed by classic people and young generations alike.

Idle Hands: Starring Jessica Alba, Devon Sawa

Posted by Kareem Mansor | Sunday, June 07, 2009

Idle Hands is a 1999 comedy/horror movie starring Devon Sawa, Seth Green, and Jessica Alba with Elden Henson and Vivica A. Fox. Idle Hands follows the life of a teen whose hand becomes possessed and goes on a killing spree, even after being cut off from his arm.

Anton Tobias (Devon Sawa) is an average lazy stoner teenager. He has two caring parents (Fred Willard and Connie Ray) and two best friends, Pnub (Elden Henson) and Mick (Seth Green). He has a crush on Molly (Jessica Alba), the girl across the street.

Everything is going fine until a string of murders plagues the town. Then, when Anton's parents wind up dead on Halloween, all the clues point to Anton. Anton's hand stabs Mick's forehead with a bottle (killing him), and throws a circular saw blade at Pnub (beheading him).

He then realises that his right hand has become possessed (little known to him, the hand is searching for a soul to bring back to Hell). Anton's hand throws his cat across the street after fighting for the remote, and while searching for his cat, his hand forces him to ring Molly's doorbell and the two start a relationship. Anton holds a funeral (of sorts) for his parents and friends. However, Pnub and Mick decide not to go to heaven, claiming the entrance was "too far", and instead return to their former bodies, (although Mick has a bottle in his head and Pnub is still decapitated). With their help Anton must stop his possessed hand.

Meanwhile, a druidic high priestess named Debi LeCure (Vivica A. Fox) in Utah has found out that when the locations of killings that have happened all over the country are connected in the order they happened, it makes a pentagram.

After his hand kills two cops Anton knew from high school, Anton cuts it off with a cleaver and Mick cauterizes his wound with an iron. Pnub and Mick go to his place for a First-Aid Kit as Anton battles with his severed hand, eventually trapping it in a microwave and burning it. Meanwhile, Debi (now along with Randy (Jack Noseworthy), a local metalhead with a monster truck and a neighbor of Anton) hunts Anton down, as Debi knows how to put a stop to Anton's possessed hand. After sending Molly to the school dance, to what Anton thinks will be a safe place, Anton returns to his home to finish off the hand. Unfortunately Pnub and Mick opened the microwave to make some burritos and the hand had already escaped. Mick fixes Pnub's decapitated head with a meat fork and duct tape and they head to the dance with Anton to look for the hand.

The three steal Randy's Ford, accidentally hitting Debi while backing up, and knocking her unconscious. Randy uses "CPR" on her and revives her. Meanwhile, a couple making out in a car are killed, one's neck being broken, the other's head bashed in. Anton, Pnub, and Mick see this and split up. Mick and Pnub go to the school Halloween dance (everyone thinks their gory appearance is a costume) to watch over Molly, while Anton looks for the hand. The hand, meanwhile, kills the principal in his office while he indulges in a little phone sex. Randy and Debi meet up with Anton, and after attempting to kill him to "stop the evil", they realize he's cut off his hand, and it's loose somewhere in the building, Debi explains to Anton that the hand will drag Molly's soul into the netherworld with it at 12:00am Druid time, which is in 6 minutes. Pnub and Mick, meanwhile, are at the dance 'watching' over Molly. Anton tries to warn everyone about his hand, but is just booed at for stopping the show.

The Hand then kills the lead singer at the dance and causes a panic. Molly and her friend Tanya, however, escape through the vents. They end up at a giant fan, and Molly uses Tanya's shoe to stop the fan from moving. Molly climbs down using a rope, but Tanya is too afraid to go, so she stalls; and the hand comes and ties the rope around her neck, then shoves her down. Then the Hand removes Tanya's shoe, causing the rope to pull Tanya into the now moving fan. Molly runs into the art room, only to have a pot smashed on her head by the hand, causing her to faint.

Anton, now searching in the art room, fights with the Hand while it's inside a puppet; but as soon as he's about to finish it off, Mick and Pnub drop from the vents right on top of him, causing it to escape. They hear Molly scream, and find the Hand in an autoshop, with Molly strapped to a car being raised toward a pentagram on the ceiling. Anton, Mick & Pnub fight with the Hand over the controls to try stop the car, but the Hand has a good grip. Mick finds a mechanics "Mighty Joe Bong" and he and Pnub smoke a bowl "for strength" while Molly is raised toward the roof. Anton takes in some and blows his smoke into the Hand (which is still inside a hand-puppet) getting it stoned, where it drops the controls and they save Molly. Debi throws a ritual knife into the Hand (which lands in Mick's chest), stopping it in a puff of smoke and fire. She and Randy take off for "ritualistic sex." Anton releases Molly from the top of the car, they go under the car and start making out. Meanwhile, Mick realizes he never got a hit off of the mechanics 3-Chamber Bong, and tells Pnub to 'light me up'. In the process of lighting the Bong, Pnub accidentally hits the controls for the car, and Anton is crushed by the car when the controls lower it too fast.

The movie ends with Anton and Molly in the hospital. Anton has given up heaven to stay with Molly, and Mick and Pnub are now his Guardian Angels, sent to see that he doesn't return to his "evil ways". After Molly leaves, Mick and Pnub go to the SnackMaster in the hall, shutting off the lights as they leave the room. Anton looks at the ceiling to see "IM UNDER THE BED" written in glow-in-the-dark paint. As Anton screams for Mick and Pnub to "come and guard me", The two joke about how they wrote that and how Anton screams like a girl, and the credits roll.

Josephine Baker (June 3, 1906 – April 12, 1975) was an African American expatriate entertainer and actress. Josephine Baker became a French citizen in 1937. Most noted as a singer, Josephine Baker also was a celebrated dancer in her early career. Josephine Baker was given the nicknames the "Bronze Venus" or the "Black Pearl", as well as the "Créole Goddess" in anglophone nations. In France, Josephine Baker has always been known as "La Baker".

Josephine Baker was the first African American female to star in a major motion picture, to integrate an American concert hall, and to become a world-famous entertainer. Josephine Baker is also noted for her contributions to the Civil Rights Movement in the United States (Josephine Baker was offered the leadership of the movement by Coretta Scott King in 1968 following Martin Luther King, Jr.'s assassination, but turned it down), for assisting the French Resistance during World War II and being the first American-born woman to receive the French military honor, the Croix de Guerre.

Josephine Baker was born Freda Josephine McDonald in St. Louis, Missouri, the daughter of Carrie McDonald. Josephine Baker's true ethnic background is unknown. Her father's identity is debated among historians. Nevertheless her estate credits vaudeville drummer Eddi Carson as her natural father, but according to a biography written by her foster son Jean-Claude Baker:
“ … (Josephine Baker's) father was identified (on the birth certificate) simply as "Edw" I think Josephine's father was white, so did Josephine, so did her family, people in St. Louis say that (Josephine's mother) had worked for a German family (around the time she became pregnant). (Carrie) let people think Eddie Carson was the father, and Carson played along, but Josephine knew better. ”

Josephine Baker's mother, Carrie, was adopted in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1886 by Richard and Elvira McDonald, both of whom were former slaves of both African and Native American descent.

When Josephine Baker was eight she was sent to work for a white woman who abused her, burning Josephine Baker's hands when she put too much soap in the laundry. Josephine Baker later went to work for another woman.

Josephine Baker dropped out of school at the age of 12 and lived as a street child in the black slums of St. Louis, sleeping in cardboard shelters and scavenging for food in garbage cans. Her street-corner dancing attracted attention and success for her, and Josephine Baker was recruited for the St. Louis Chorus vaudeville show at 15. Josephine Baker then headed to New York City during the Harlem Renaissance, performing at the Plantation Club and in the chorus of the popular Broadway revues Shuffle Along (1921) and The Chocolate Dandies (1924). Josephine Baker performed as the last dancer in a chorus line, a position in which the dancer traditionally performed in a comic manner, as if they were unable to remember the dance, until the encore, at which point they would not only perform it correctly, but with additional complexity. Josephine Baker was then billed as "the highest-paid chorus girl in vaudeville."

On October 2, 1925, Josephine Baker opened in Paris at the Théatre des Champs-Élysées, where Josephine Baker became an instant success for her erotic dancing and for appearing practically nude on stage. After a successful tour of Europe, Josephine Baker reneged on her contract and returned to France to star at the Folies Bergères, setting the standard for her future acts. Josephine Baker performed the Danse sauvage, wearing a costume consisting of a skirt made of a string of artificial bananas.

Josephine Baker's success coincided (1925) with the Exposition des Arts Décoratifs, which gave us the term "Art Deco", and also with a renewal of interest in ethnic forms of art, including African. Josephine Baker represented one aspect of this fashion. Josephine Baker was very creative and loved sequins and feathers.

In later shows in Paris Josephine Baker was often accompanied on stage by her pet cheetah, Chiquita, who was adorned with a diamond collar. The cheetah frequently escaped into the orchestra pit, where it terrorized the musicians, adding another element of excitement to the show.

Hayden Panettiere pregnant.

Posted by Kareem Mansor | Sunday, June 07, 2009


Heroes star Hayden Panettiere wants kids - is Hayden Panettiere pregnant now?

Nope (at least I don't think so)! But she does wants children, four to be exact. However, when she does have kids she doesn't want them to be in showbiz.

Hayden told In Style, "I always said I want four kids, I love kids.

"I would love to be a mum and to have a family - for Italians, it's the most important thing you can have."

Panettiere added, "I think you have to be a pretty strong person to enter the industry that young and not be affected by it.

"I was lucky, but I'd never want my kids to be subject to that much criticism at such a young age."

Hayden Leslie Panettiere was born on 21st August 1989 in Palisades, New York. She still lives in New York with her parents, Lesley Vogel and Skip Panettiere, and younger brother Jansen Panettiere. Her mom got her started in the business by doing commercials when she was just 11 months old.

Hayden Panettiere thought she may have been pregnant but a subsequent pregnancy test came back negative. The friction caused by the scare is said to have been the cause of the couple parting ways after a year together.

Then, at only 4 1/2, she was cast on the soap opera "One Life to Live" (1968), where she remained until 1997. Since then, she has gone on to appear in many feature films and TV movies. But she is probably best known in the United States for her role as "Claire" on the hit TV show "Heroes" (2006/II).

As for movies, Hayden starred in Remember the Titans (2000) with Denzel Washington and Joe Somebody (2001) with Tim Allen. When Hayden isn't working, she enjoys singing, dancing, horseback riding, gymnastics, taking piano lessons, and swimming.

She has been involved with many animated movies, beginning with A Bug's Life (1998) as "Dot", later to follow was Dinosaur (2000), the video game Kingdom Hearts (2002) (VG), and The Mark of Kri (2002) (VG). Her next movie is Racing Stripes (2005), a partly animated film, but Hayden will star in the human role; other cast members include the voices of Whoopi Goldberg, Dustin Hoffman, Joshua Jackson and Mandy Moore.

In 2003, she joined the likes of Jessica Lange, Tom Wilkinson, and Clancy Brown in Jane Anderson's Normal (2003) (TV) a film about a Midwestern husband and father who announces his plans to have a sex-change operation. In July of the same year, Hayden appeared in a John Guare play, "Landscape of the Body", for the Williamstown theater festival in Williamstown, Massachusetts.

When the camera comes on, I am not Hayden any more, I am Lizzie!

I hate how people say I'm growing up fast.

You go on these Internet blogs and people say the meanest things. I'm a normal person. Just because I'm in the spotlight doesn't mean I'm God's gift to the world. I'm learning and making mistakes just like every other 17-year-old girl out there.

The funny thing is that people see one film like Racing Stripes (2005) or Ice Princess (2005) and all of a sudden, slip me into this category of "that's what she's always involved in" but people don't remember that I did Normal (2003) (TV) with Jessica Lange and Tom Wilkinson for HBO, which was very dramatic. They don't remember that I did Lies My Mother Told Me (2005) (TV) which was the Lifetime film with Joely Richardson and Colm Feore, which was also extremely dramatic. They don't remember that I did Remember the Titans (2000).

I know it's really gory, and a lot of people's stomachs will probably not like me for it, but that is just awesome, just being able to be bloodied up and have different body parts put on. That's right up my alley. It's so awesome.

I think at the age I'm at, it's really hard for a film career, and I'm at a point in my life where I thought it would be a good idea to be a part of a good show and to be able to finish school.

Elvis and Annabelle” is about the son of a funeral director, Elvis, who resurrects a beauty queen, Annabelle, after she was pronounced dead. The beauty Annabelle was deemed dead after she suffered a heart attack and her body was sent to the funeral home for preparation. Annabelle wakes up on the table of the mortician Elvis.



With lush cinematography and a haunting soundtrack, Will Geiger's film presents a unique and timeless love story.

Their lives are worlds apart, but they collide when Anabelle, in a moment of triumph, collapses and dies on a beauty pageant catwalk and ends up on Elvis's embalming table.

Thai Rath is a Thai-language daily newspaper published in Bangkok and distributed nationwide. Thai Rath is a broadsheet published with two sections. The first section is devoted to news. Although the news section is best known for its sensationalist coverage of crime and accidents, it also includes stories on Thai politics, economy and society. The second section features coverage of sport and entertainment. Thai Rath is the oldest and best-selling newspaper in Thailand, claiming a circulation in excess of 1 million copies daily.

Thai Rath was founded on 25 December 1962 by Kampol Watcharapol. Kampol had started two other newspapers, Khaophap Raiwan (ข่าวภาพรายวัน), which were shut down by the Thai government in 1958. He then ran Siang Ang Thong (เสียงอ่างทอง) from 1 May 1959 to 25 December 1962.

Now Thai Rath become a controversial newspaper when Thai Rath published a photo of David Carradine when David Carradine dead.

The family of the late David Carradine seem to be outraged over the pictures of David’s dead body that were published by the Thai newspaper Thai Rath.

The Thai Rath newspaper, which is a regional newspaper published in Bangkok in Thai language, ran disturbing pictures of David Carradine’s corpse in the front and as well as in its inside pages. The pictures published on the Saturday cover of the newspaper Thai Rath shows a naked body of David Carradine suspended from a clothes bar in a suite closet. The hands apparently bound together above the head and feet on the floor. While the face is blacked out, other more explicit parts of the picture are censored. And, the relatives of late David Carradine do like any part of it.

The photo has yet to be published by any additional tabloids or websites.

Thai police have since said that accidental suffocation may be the cause of the actor's death after they discovered a rope around Carradine's genitals.

Tattoos on the lower half of his nude body can be seen.

Sources close to the actor told Radar Online that he had a history of engaging in auto-erotic asphyxiation, a sexual practice often involving a rope around the neck.

In response to the image, Carradine's brother Keith released a statement that says:

"The family of David Carradine wants it understood that, per attorney Mark Geragos, any persons, publications or media outlets will be fully prosecuted for invasion of privacy and causing severe emotional distress if the photos are published."
