You remember Rick Genest right? I’m sure you have seen him on the internet, or perhaps in Lady Gaga’s Born this Way video? In an ingenious ad (maybe a little too long), Derma Blend uses Rick’s tattoos to show exactly how powerful their concealer is.
The video starts off with someone sitting on the a chair, then only after the person takes off their shirt and wipes their chest showing what looks like steal to be beneath, that you realize that’s it’s Genest and that his tattoos have all been concealed. It’ freaky because he looks quite normal. I’m sure this will get some viral attention and if you doubted he effectiveness of Derma Blen’s product, you don’t now.
Peep the video ad below.

Funny Friday: Video of a Fan Dressed as a Ref Stops UCLA Bruins vs. Arizona Wildcats Football Game! [video]
This is just plane genius. I could see this guy and his friends looking at being a ref for Halloween. Then looking at the costume….and then looking at each other…then looking at the costume…then back at each other.
Then you have to have the stones to pull it off, and he does. The guy looks exactly like a ref from the waist up and gets the play stopped in the middle of the game. When they are on to him, he takes off and starts stripping off his clothes.
This kid is not getting his fifteen minutes of fame!!!
Peep the video – it hilarious.

Walter Isaacson is an author/ biographer that is working on a book called simply Steve Jobs. During the time he spent with Steve Jobs he discovered that Jobs refused surgery, early in his illness that could have possibly saved his life because he felt it was too invasive.
Jobs said that he regretted the decision. Iscaacson says,
“I’ve asked [Jobs why he didn't get an operation then] and he said, ‘I didn’t want my body to be opened…I didn’t want to be violated in that way.
“I think that he kind of felt that if you ignore something, if you don’t want something to exist, you can have magical thinking…we talked about this a lot,” and “He wanted to talk about it, how he regretted it….I think he felt he should have been operated on sooner.”
It took 9 precious months for Jobs to agree to the surgery.
Isaacson also recounted how Jobs often told everyone that he had beat Cancer while secretly getting treated after the surgery.
Iscaacson will be on 60 minutes this Sunday (October 23rd) and it promises to be DVR worthy.
Walter Iscaason was actually hired by Jobs as Jobs knew he had limited time. He talks about Jobs thoughts on there being a 50 /50 chance that God exists. He talks about the impact that the extreme wealth had on the Apple employees calling them “bizarro people”. Some of this interview will be in Job’s own voice recorded just before his death.
Before you get all Steve Jobsed this 60 minutes episode sounds like it’s one not to be missed.

Every now and then I need to give my lady readers something to come back for, but this time the fellas get a nice little treat as well. Not only is Joe Manganiello shirtless but he brought some eye candy of his own, Audra Marie.
That’s just a good looking couple. At age 34, Joe looks like he can go on for years. When he’s not filming True Blood he still has to keep in shape for his other shirtless roles. Next up for the warewolf is a movie called, “Magic Mike” where he is playing a male stripper named…..Bid D*ck Richie. Ha! I hope the director has got an extra supply of socks…for stuffing. (You know I always have to throw in a little hate )
It’s weird that this isn’t really getting that much press here in the states. I think that’s actually a good thing. It implies that we can finally take a joke. Very similar to Gilbert Gottfried, Gervais is a comedian, that is crass, blunt and funny. For you to take to heart anything he says, you are the real fool.
He is under severe attack for using the word “Mong” in jokes online and on twitter. Disability groups and Down Syndrome advocates are up and arms and pissed about phrases used such as:
“two mongs don’t make a right” and “good monging everyone”.
Gervais basically explains that he is not referring directly to children with Down’s Syndrome, explaining that it just means an idiot. He even goes as far as tweeting a link to an online slang dictionary. He says words change meanings all the time and points out the term Gay.
Penny Green, director of the Down’s Heart Group charity, was not buying Gervais’ explanation.
‘I refute his suggestion that the word has changed its meaning.
‘We come across people every day who still think the term applies to people with Down’s.
His actions have proved incredibly upsetting and distressing to families of disabled children, as we’ve seen on Twitter and our own forums.
Ricky is telling everyone it’s acceptable to use this derogatory term.’
Responding to an online poll about whether the word was offensive, he tweeted:
“The humorless PC brigade have been out in force trying to influence the vote with ill informed negative comment.”
“Dear fans. Don’t give the haters any attention. Those people aren’t really offended by the things I say – they are offended by my success.”
His fans won’t care, I being one of them. Although I understand how offensive this word can be, a comedian is a comedian, and in fact Gervais twitter following has increased by 10,000 since the attack begin. Keep it up and the guy will have more people saying Monger then using iPhones.
I think Ricky Summed it up best:
Life’s short. Chill-ax!
