A PIECE OF CAKE FROM PRINCESS DIANA'S WEDDING WILL GO UP FOR AUCTION TODAY . . . AND IT'S EXPECTED TO SELL FOR $40,000:
Today, a 27-year-old piece of cake from PRINCESS DIANA and PRINCE CHARLES' wedding (--in 1981) will be auctioned off in England . . . and it's expected to bring in around $40,000. (!!!) (Daily Mail)
(--It seems crazy that someone would pay so much for a stale piece of cake . . . but it's not unheard of. In 1998, a guy named Benjamin Yim bought a similar slice of cake from Charles and Diana's wedding . . . for $28,600.)
I never realized how many bad hairstyles NICOLAS CAGE has sported in his various movies . . . until I came across this list. Check it out . .

I'm cruising to Mr. Notebook tomorrow to see if it can be saved, at least the hard drive. Thank goodness we are not working tomorrow. We'll be back on tuesday, that will give me some time to get some of this straightened out. Hope everyone else's day went better.

I broke down and bought a Mac Book yesterday. How stupid am I, paying $200 extra to have it in black. I'm a moron. I just should have held off on buying it because I'm completely engrossed in figuring it out. The worst part is that I really need to be writing a new article for Rare Magazine that's due and I'm goofing around with setting up this new Mac. I've never owned a Mac, never thought I would. The learning curve on all the features is overwhelming. I need to chill out and just write. The built in camera is fun. Now I have the whole family set up to ichat when I'm out of town or hanging at the airstream past bedtime.
Cool features, not sure if it's worth the extra $$$ yet.

Alex is living in L.A. now, but still has a lot of ties to Austin and so does the crew from his new film "In Search of a Midnight Kiss". The movies rolling out worldwide to rave reviews. It opens Friday the 29th at the Alamo Drafthouse South. We hope to talk to Alex this week and get some more scoop on the film. Make plans to see it and bring all your friends.
These are the kind of films we need more of and fewer superhero/alien/crap movies. More details coming soon...

I don’t know what the deal is. I get too emotional watching women’s gymastics in the Olympics. I never had this problem before. It’s because my daughter is 6 years old and I’m a father now. I just get too wrapped up in how young these girls are to be handling the pressure and representing their country. It’s just too much. When they make mistakes I feel too much for the girls, then their parents and I don’t know how the parents can console them at this level. Way too much pressure for early teenagers... and to think how intense their training has been since they were probably about 3! Something wrong with that.

Make sure you put in the name that you go by, not your full name. For example, if you are Robert but you go by Bob, put Bob in Kabalarians.
It's scary how dead on this can be with people you know, or yourself. Great for picking baby names.

I am really getting a kick out of the Quarter Millionaire. Not only does he sit there with his staff and listen to our show all morning and try to get on the air, he apparently spends his evenings on our blogs typing comments. I'm heading out for the evening to live a life in the REAL world. Have fun little sad man.
On our initial test.

We'll update you soon. Play along. jb

Anyway, enjoy the dbag article from last months Rare Magazine:
My absolute goal here today is to talk to those of you who are young men in your twenties. I work with a lot of young women and they came to me and asked if I could do something about all the men in their twenties. They can’t stand them because they claim they all act like total douche bags. I completely understand why they date men in their thirties. Young men in your twenties, you ARE acting like total douche bags! Stop it right now. It’s absolutely out of control.
What has happened in recent years. I promised them I would do my part to try to get the word out. Douchism is very similar to narcissism, but with more cheeseball flair. Sometimes even being “cocky” is acceptable, if you can back it up, but being a DB is uncalled for and you do not impress anyone. Let me fill you in on what a douche bag is and you can decipher for yourself if you ARE one.
Pop quiz number 2.
n.: a bad situation.
“Looks like we may have a shituation on our hands, I don’t know either of those door guys”
Term used to ridicule a woman with a less than fit posterior.
“She shouldn’t even try to squeeze into 7’s sportin a bag o’ beagles like that.”
To engage in dirty talk with ones partner via text message.
“Hold on dog, go on outside to smoke without me, I’m in mid textual relations with that baby from earlier tonight.”
This is what most DB’s call their job. It’s an excuse for why they work at a kiosk. Just a day job, a cover for saving the planet.
“Selling gyro-copters at the mall is just my Clark Kent job, me and my boys are working on building one of the skyscraper condo deals.”
Someone who asks many stupid, pointless, obnoxious questions. Most DB’s are askholes themselves, but don’t know it.
“Who you callin askhole, askhole?”
Some poor girl mistakenly gave a DB her number and he starts texting her that same night. This is the lag time between the DB asking if he can come over and her response.
“I’m throwin it out there to meet her at an after hours party, but my textpectations tell me she’ll reply to just come over to my place to break of a piece o’ me.”
And as for you twenty something chicks, I hold you partially responsible for this mess we are in today. If you would stop talking to these guys and giving them your phone numbers, this would all go away and you wouldn’t have to pull and Anna Nicole and date 90 year old men.
