#LOFNOTC FTW!

The TV Guide

Last night turned out to be a very fun night … totally unplanned. I basically was planning to be a Loser of Friday Night on my couch but after I heard that the amazing Amanda Palmer was DJing in the Losers of Friday Night on their Computers room on Turntable, I had to join in the fun. The room was packed with awesome people, including author Neil Gaiman, and the music was fun as Hell. In the history of the LOFNOTC, it was prolly the best night of all. More »

DJ TV

The TV Guide

Last night, David and I met up with our friends Gillian and Tim for a DELICIOUS dinner at Casa Vega in Studio City, CA. It had been a few weeks since we’ve gotten to hang out with G & T so we made sure our double date was a fun one. After we supped our faces off, we went over to their new home to see how they’ve settled in and we fell in LOVE with their beautiful new home. All in all, it was a great night.

This morning has been a bizzy one for me … particularly because I spent way too many hours DJing at turntable.fm More »

And the Theories about What It Will Be are Very Interesting

Last week we learned that Harry Potter author JK Rowling was readying the release of something called Pottermore and ever since that announcement was made, everyone has been speculating at to what Pottermore might be. Since the announcement was made, the Pottermore website has been updated with a link to a You Tube page that is counting down to the announcement day this Wednesday … a page full of owls. The owls are animated but don’t really give any clues … well, not that I can decipher. THIS website, tho, has a couple of speculatative theories on what Pottermore might be … and I think they’re on to something. Click below to read more. More »

Altho there is absolute NO official information about the site, it has been sniffed out that Pottermore may become a sort of official online portal for Harry Potter fans. A representative for Rowling insists that the site has nothing to do with a new book or the final Harry Potter film to be released next month. HMMM.

Reuters Reports That The iPhone 5 Will Be Released In September

Rumor Mill

It’s been quite a while since we’ve heard a seriously juicy iPhone rumor so it was very nice of the Reuters news agency to report the latest rumor this week that the anticipated iPhone 5 will be released this September. Altho iPhones are usually released in June, there has been much speculation that the next generation iPhone will be pushed back from its usual June release date. While Apple has not confirmed this report (because they never confirm anything they themselves do not report), this rumored release report from Reuters could have some semblance of truth to it.

BritneySpears.com Gets An Interesting Layout Upgrade

Downgrade?

The tech folks behind Britney Spears‘s official website have done some major tinkering to her website and have unveiled a whole new layout … one that looks, IMHO, kinda tacky. Taking a page from those old My Space profiles and Geocities homepages of the late 90′s, early 2000′s, BritneySpears.com now has a plethora of flashy icons meant to inspire visitors to click on them. Unfortch, those flashy icons didn’t really work in the late 90′s and still do not work today. More »
