2005 American Music Awards

I’m an observer on the edge of the red carpet at the American Music Awards tonight downtown at the Shrine and dizzy from the procession of tan, well-tended, tight, carefully manicured flesh – or was that just Lance Armstrong? As the sign said on the KFC joint down the block: “Leg and Thigh.”


Add some wing, breast and drumsticks, plus bumper-to-bumper bling, and you know why the limo drivers lined up behind the chainlink fence in the parking lot couldn’t stop smiling. The media was in its usual feeding frenzy, baying like jackals in heat when charisma-deprived Paris Hiton, plus sister Nicky, made her appearance before the cameras. Just another day at the office for the girl famous for something we can’t immediately recall. Does she spend more on a pedicure than most people play for their monthly mortgage payment? They all do! Dress code was standard Hollywood: funeral black for the guys, as much tanned flesh as possible for the girls, surrounded by anything clingy. Cyndi Lauper missed the tanning memo, and was marble white from head to toe, except for the parts covered by the black dress. Rapper Chingy wasn’t shy – making a show of his watch, a huge, hideous, diamond-studded timepiece begging to be ripped from his wrist and quickly pawned. Posing, posing, everyone posing. Where do they learn how to do that? Two hundred cameras, 200 poses. Carmen Electra and the devilish Dave Navarro did their swanning at just the right moment. It’s important to time your red carpet trot properly. You don’t want to get caught in a celeb logjam but you do want to arrive while the jackals are still in a lather. “Over the shoulder to your right. One time, Lindsay.” Lohan in action, in sparkly black, dangling diamonds from the ears, working the press. Why are we here? Something to do with music apparently.

  2. Found some cool stuff here http://www.gamerfuse.com Lunia: Record of Lunia War Lunia is a relatively unique game in the free-to-play MMO space. Having more in common with 90s arcade brawlers than a typical MMO, Lunia’s action takes place in stages, with you and your party members brawling your way through a map filled with bad guys, on the way to fight the boss.
    Unlike most games, most of the combat is in realtime, and requires inputting actual moves (a la a fighting game) rather than spamming number keys. Currently the game features five playable classes, each with their own unique skills, combos, and personality. Classes include a warrior, a healer, a wizard, a thief, and a puppeteer. Between stages, the story of Lunia is revealed in anime-inspired cutscenes, giving the game yet another unique aspect.
