Tweet Follow me Jeffrey Katzenberg On September 15th and 16th at The Hilton Los Angeles Universal City, Ca, many of the Movie and Entertainment Industry’s key players will meet for something called the 3D Entertainment Summit. But since this is really a story of the emergence of the 3D movie, it’s more appropriate and searchable to call it the 3D Movie Summit. The 2010 event is the third one in this annual meeting. Produced by Unicomm and The Bob Dowling Group, the idea is to have a forum to...

Tweet Follow me Regular readers of this space know this blogger travels to Atlanta, Georgia to help Mom and just keep her company almost every month. My mother lost her husband and my stepfather in 2005 and to prostate cancer. (In fact, my Mom had breast cancer, and my father and stepfather passed away from prostate cancer in 2005, so that was a hard year.) Fortunately between good friends nearby and my aunts and uncles just four hours by drive in Tennessee, and then me, she’s not without company. Even though...

Tweet Follow me According to CNN News, Paris Hilton was arrested Friday night Nevada  on cocaine charges.  She was pulled over by the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas.  The police detected the smell of marijuana and she was arrested for suspicion of carrying cocaine.  I guess you could say the arresting officer won the drug lottery arresting the Hilton Hotel heiress who not so long ago wiggled out of an alleged marijuana arrest in South Africa. Paris Hilton sure gets around in trouble, and the police...

Tweet Follow me  Berkeley Prof. Michael O’Hare  The UC Berkeley Letter To Students On California by Berkeley Professor Michael O’Hare is one that California Gubernatorial Candidates Jerry Brown and Meg Whitman should see because both are part of the generations that Michael O’Hare points to as essentially responsible for the decline of California, but for different reasons. Jerry Brown was Governor of California when Prop 13 (also called AB 8), the legislation reducing property...

Tweet Follow me It is unclear whether 50 Cent is tweeting under the influence, if Kanye West hacked his Twitter account, or if he just wants to be outrageous. In any event the tweets that 50 Cent has posted are getting lots of attention for outlandish statements, references to Ja Rule (Shady records and Murder Inc. had the huge feud that spewed between Ja Rule and 50 Cent), the Obama administration, and details of his intimate life. Here are some screenshots of the tweets from the past few hours: The tweets may...

Tweet Follow me So in the previous blog posted it was made clear that Glenn Beck denies that this is a political rally, and after reading more about what has gone on at the rally it seems as though Beck has attempted to turn the rally into a religious experience. As the rally opened Beck told his supporters, “America today begins to turn back to God. For too long this country has wandered in darkness.” The event even included a pastor making a prayer offering while Beck continued to add references to God...

Tweet Follow me pay per click Do wealthy Americans discount the 99er movement or do they even know these ‘Exhaustees’ exist? What could it possibly hurt if the 99er Nation of nearly 5 million hurting Americans gets their desperately needed Tier 5? The wealthy members of Congress are all too familiar with the Americans who have exhausted their UI compensation, but only recently have they introduced legislation to address this issue. As the November election draws near, it is unclear if Washington will address...

Tweet Follow me pay per click HR 6091 Tier 5 Bill for the 99ers – does not pass the laugh test. Then again, millions of unemployed Americans without UI payments going on 8 months (with no jobs in sight) is no laughing matter. Earlier this month, Rep. Jim McDermott cosponsored legislation to create a 5th tier of Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) unemployment insurance (UI) benefits in states with high unemployment. The legislation was introduced by Rep. Shelley Berkley (D-NV) and would add an additional...

Tweet Follow me Glenn Beck claims that his Restoring Honor rally has nothing to do with politics whatsoever. Image Courtesy of USA Today Everything Glenn Beck does is political, and this Fox News commentator is not fooling anyone with his attempts to disprove that there is any political involvement that ties into this rally. Ironically this rally takes place on the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s I Have a Dream speech at the same location. Beck says that this rally will reclaim the civil...

Indian Country Today reports “Seneca: Cigarette Tax bill is a throwback to “termination era’.

Tweet Follow me Paris Hilton’s Las Vegas arrest for cocaine possession, coupled with the two other times this year that she was suspected of possessing marijuana, signal a return to her careless, freewheeling habits that eventually landed her in the slammer for 23-days in 2007 and for alcohol-related reckless driving, and caused a much watched release from jail: Later that year on September 29, 2007, Paris Hilton appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman and to make up a show she was supposed to do earlier...

Tweet Follow me An eventful year for Paris Hilton. Someone call David Letterman! Paris Hilton was arrested in Las Vegas for possession of cocaine just days after a screwed-up knife-wielding man tried to break into her home in Los Angeles, and just months after she was suspected of possession of drugs in South Africa and in France. Whatever is going on with Paris Hilton, one would think the events of 2007, when she was jailed for 23 days for violating probation related to alcohol-related reckless driving in...
