Scarlett Johansson is getting a lot of publicity of the good kind, in the wake of the bad publicity caused by the email account hacking scandal that saw revealing private photos of the sexy star spread all over the Internet. But the problem for Ms. Johansson, and an issue for anyone in the business of celebrity, is that her current buzz is far less than it was during...

As one who has a Sony Tablet, given as a Christmas present from Sony, and one who purchased an Apple iPad for his mother, I think I’m pretty qualified to comment on both tablets. While the basic idea is that one is better than the other, the real question really comes down to age of the user and system preference. In other words, if you like Apple’s World,...

The people who make Zennie62 go are its subscribers. So I wanted to just say thanks to them and to the people yet to come. ...

Jerome Simpson, the previously known only to Cincinnati Bengals fans, is now a man with a house hold name. Everyone wants to know who the NFL player was who just did the 360 over a defender and into the end zone, putting his team in the playoffs at the same time. The effort made his name the most-searched over the Christmas weekend. But something else that caught...

The reports are all over that Major League Baseball’s long-delayed report on the Oakland A’s in Oakland, and if they should be given permission to leave Oakland for San Jose, will be released “soon,” and the verdict is that the A’s will be given permission to move to San Jose. If Oakland Mayor Jean Quan doesn’t want to give Oaklanders...

Christmas is officially here, and it’s marked by Santa Claus’ visit and gifts, and Christmas Eve Mass, what was called “Midnight Mass” but was moved up to 10 PM to give the Pope more time to rest for his Christmas Day Speech. Pope Benedict XVI has practiced for over 60 years. This year, the Pope asked the faithful to look beyond the “superficial...

The NORAD Santa Tracker has Santa Claus in Lincoln, Nebraska as of this writing. His next stop is Des Moines, Iowa. What’s the NORAD Santa Tracker? This blogger has blogged about the cool service many times. Here’s a brief: The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement for children to call Santa misprinted...

It’s A Wonderful Life A friend on Facebook wanted to find the full, original, uncut version of Frank Capra’s Classic It’s A Wonderful...

Why are women jealous of fit women? Ask Megan Avalon. Women bodybuilders, fitness models, and female athletes tend to bring out extreme views, especially from, well, other women. Take what US Women’ Soccer Star Hope Solo had to deal with on Dancing With The Stars 2011 when she was called “too muscular.” Or take this blog post where the author starts...

David Letterman was nice to Olympic Skier Lindsey Vonn. In the great tradition of female guests on the show (most notably Jennifer Aniston, Eva Longoria, and Jessica Alba) Lindsey Vonn came on the The Late Show With David Letterman and made an obvious attempt to show her legs. And I mean even to the point of holding up her skirt and pushing it back to make sure you...

After the USA Women’s Soccer Team was eliminated in a most-dramatic finals match against Japan, it looked like the team’s spark plug Abby Wambach would not gain the spotlight she so rightly deserved, and watched as her extraordinary teammate Hope Solo grabbed the many opportunities for stardom (not to mention a whopping increase in Twitter Followers) that came...

TechCrunch Senior Editor Sarah Lacy, who I first met when she was hanging with then-Valleywag Editor Owen Thomas, is the first former TechCrunch staffer (there are a lot of them: Michael Arrington , Paul Carr, Heather Harde, and Lacy) to actually announce that she’s going to announce a first funding round for a new venture – a tech news website called PandoDaily.com. Right...

In 2007, this blogger made a video question for the CNN YouTube Republican Debates for Ron Paul, and it was based on the work of Alan Bernstein of the Houston Chronicle, where he wrote: Texas congressional candidate Ron Paul’s 1992 political newsletter highlighted portrayals of blacks as inclined toward crime and lacking sense about top political issues. Under the headline...

The Indianapolis Colts shocked Houston Texans at Lucas Oil Field Thursday 19 to 16, and moved their record to 2-13. And they did it with just enough defense (the Texans were held to under 300 yards, with 283), just enough offense, (Quarterback Dan Orlovsky, replacing the injured Peyton Manning, threw for 244 yards), and timely plays to win. The victory was the Colts...

Here’s a television recommendation that is definitely a nice Christmas present. While searching Netflix for a new show and series to get into my boyfriend and I found the show Jericho. Now, although the show only aired from 2006-2008 and had two seasons – this show is addicting. We are in the first season about 21 episodes in, and it is probably one of...

Zennie62 will be in Las Vegas for CES 2012 between January 8, 2012 and January 15th 2012, and looking through my press emails, the trend and buzz is concerned with mobile and with 3D. On top of that, there are several interesting conferences within the Consumer Electronics Show that are of note. First off, this blogger’s focus will be on “Digital Hollywood,”...

Twitter loves Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. For a movie, let alone a brand, Twitter can be Heaven or Hell. One well-timed, creatively written tweet can cause a flurry of re-tweets and copycats that can trash a movie just as it’s released. Or, Twitter can be the device that makes an unknown movie a blockbuster, or keeps a film, like Scott Pilgrim Versus...

Whatever Monta Ellis did, Erika Ross Smith’s just opened herself up to a World of bad media. The problem with what seems to be a flurry of sexual harassment claims and charges in the New Media Age is they are starting to make the accusers look really bad. Such is the case with Erika Ross Smith and her claim this morning that Golden State Warriors Guard Monta Ellis...

Reuters and The Chicago Tribune have both reported that Kim Jong-il’s body is going to be embalmed. This means that his body is going to be on display under glass for a while: “”It’s all about idolizing (the Kim family). They keep their bodies preserved to keep the regime intact,” said Hong Soon-kyung, a former North Korean ambassador...

The video below by “dukkhaboy” on YouTube gives some of the flavor of last night’s Oakland City Council Hearing, as Port Of Oakland Executive Director Omar Benjamin talks against the Occupy Oakland Port Shutdown Action of last week, (and in support of a wild resolution to grant extraordinary police powers to prevent future Port shutdown attempts), and...
