Face Transplant


Surgeons in France have carried out the first face transplant, it has been reported.

The woman had lost her nose, lips and chin after being savaged by a dog.

In the controversial operation, tissues, muscles, arteries and veins were taken from a brain-dead donor and attached to the patient's lower face.

Doctors stress the woman will not look like her donor, but nor will she look like she did before the attack - instead she will have a "hybrid" face.


Michael Jackson

Eh, I don't really feel like posting anything, but its been a few days, so here:

What does Michael Jackson really sound like?

Michael's high-pitched voice is not his real voice.

“Michael Jackson has a big, deep voice,” Dimond revealed. “Somewhere in there, especially if you bring him bad news or if you make him mad, his voice gets very, very deep.”

and damn is he weird:

Michael Jackson stirs controversy by entering woman's bathroom in Dubai

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – Michael Jackson has stirred a small controversy in the United Arab Emirates by entering the ladies room in a shopping mall.

But local newspapers reported that the 47-year-old performer did not quickly leave the bathroom and was spotted applying makeup before leaving.

More stuff thats only of interest to the AOLers who didn't do KW: amer today, Icahn wants on the TWX board of directors and has no problems pushing out Dick Parsons:

Icahn May Push for Parson's Ouster at Time Warner

NEW YORK -(Dow Jones)- Investor activist Carl Icahn has no qualms in pushing out Time Warner Inc.'s (TWX) Chief Executive Richard Parsons if the executive doesn't get on board with Icahn's plan to break up the media conglomerate.

In an interview with Business Week, Icahn said he is forming a slate of proposed directors to replace some or all of Time Warner's board through a proxy fight.


Icahn earlier said if his plans to break up the company were in place, Time Warner stock would be worth more than $27.

(damn $27 would be nice....)

AOL Pictures

Another nice AOL move:

AOL refreshes picture offering:

America Online has relaunched its free photo-sharing service as AOL Pictures and has added new features.

The service offers consumers unlimited online digital-photo storage in original resolution and tools for creating photo albums. The original service, called You've Got Pictures, was launched in 1998. It currently has 6 million monthly visitors and stores nearly 300 million photos, AOL said.

The company also announced a holiday offer for users. Up to 100 4-inch by 6-inch glossy or matte prints will be given free when ordered online, for a limited period, AOL said.

AOL Pictures



The TV show? No, Kwame Brown.

Dan (10:32:18 AM):
Dan (10:32:23 AM): oh youre gonna love this
Me (10:32:37 AM): nice!!!!!!!!

Yes, it's still early but there's no way to sugarcoat it. Brown's approval ratings are falling faster than President Bush's. Through seven games the 6-foot-11 power forward -- and former No. 1 overall pick -- is averaging just over six points and six rebounds in 28 minutes. He's shooting 39.6 percent from the floor. He's getting in early foul trouble. He's committing 2.71 turnovers per game.

The question for the Lakers is how long will they wait on the kid with the Ferrari body and the Go-Kart motor?

But having to learn a new offense doesn't excuse Brown from committing silly fouls, failing to box out, bricking free throws and fumbling the ball away. Against Memphis, he botched several field-goal attempts right under the rim.

I don't know whats funnier...that theres *already* an ESPN Bracketology, or that MD is listed as a #3 seed


AD on Showtime??

Just a rumor...

Die-hard 'Arrested Development' fans already feeling sting of loss

However, there is an intriguing rumor of a suitor: Showtime.

This idea actually makes sense. Showtime has been making great strides in its programming department, but the audience is still lacking. A name series that might prompt die-hard fans (are there any other kind left for "AD"?) to subscribe would be an enticing option. The idea is that "AD" might pair well with "Weeds." And no matter how you get it -- by developing it yourself or snatching it fully built off the discard pile -- a great series is a great series, period.

'Welcome Back Kotter', 'Chico and the Man', 'Growing Pains'....yeah

Still, very nice move by AOL IMO:

AOL to Have Reruns on Demand:

America Online Inc. and Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. are planning to put thousands of episodes of once-popular television shows like "Welcome Back Kotter" and "Chico and the Man" on the Web site, where high-speed Internet users can view them for free.

The new In2TV service is set to launch in January and will include episodes of more than 100 shows.


Eric Frankel, president of domestic cable distribution for Warner Bros., said In2TV would launch with interactive games and six channels: LOL, the laugh-out-loud comedy channel; Dramarama; Heroes and Horrors; Rush, with "Kung Fu" and other action programming; and Vintage, which will feature "F Troop," the once-popular western "Maverick," and "Growing Pains," in whose later episodes starred a young Leonardo DiCaprio.

"What we are finding is that everyone who is a big movie star started on television and had recurring or cameo roles," Frankel said in an interview. "We have 4,800 episodes available during the first year." Two additional channels are in the works, he said, adding that computer users would have immediate access to new puzzles, trivia games and ways to interact with the programming itself.

Yahoo backs off bidding for AOL stake

NEW YORK--Internet media company Yahoo has backed out of the running to buy a stake in Time Warner's America Online Internet unit.

"After we learned what their proposed deal terms were, we passed and we've never looked back," a Yahoo spokeswoman said on Thursday, confirming a report in the Wall Street Journal.

She denied that the company had made an offer for AOL but confirmed that Yahoo Chief Executive Terry Semel met with Time Warner chairman Richard Parsons in October.

The paper, citing a person familiar with the matter, said Time Warner signaled it wasn't interested in the terms Yahoo was willing to offer.

Flying Spaghetti Monster

I am writing you with much concern after having read of your hearing to decide whether the alternative theory of Intelligent Design should be taught along with the theory of Evolution. I think we can all agree that it is important for students to hear multiple viewpoints so they can choose for themselves the theory that makes the most sense to them. I am concerned, however, that students will only hear one theory of Intelligent Design.

Let us remember that there are multiple theories of Intelligent Design. I and many others around the world are of the strong belief that the universe was created by a Flying Spaghetti Monster. It was He who created all that we see and all that we feel. We feel strongly that the overwhelming scientific evidence pointing towards evolutionary processes is nothing but a coincidence, put in place by Him

Kwame Brown still sucks...

but at least his house is bigger.... (that bastard)

From OBrien:

New year, same old Kwame

You watched him in his debut with the Lakers, and he was the same old, disjointed player, a fifth-year rookie, as it were, never really part of the flow, his seven points and six rebounds negated by five fouls and three turnovers in 28 minutes.
Or to borrow from David Byrne: Same as it ever was. Same as it ever was. Same. As. It. Ever. Was.

Brown, though, has something far worse than a poor attitude going against him. He has no feel for the game, no sense of where to be on the court, no idea how to impose himself on the proceedings.

Mile *High* City Legalizes Pot Possession

From Cytena:

Mile High City Legalizes Pot Possession

DENVER (Nov. 2) - Residents of Denver have voted to legalize the possession of small amounts of marijuana for adults. Authorities, however, can still file state drug charges against offenders.

With 100 percent of precincts reporting early Wednesday, 54 percent, or 56,001 voters, cast ballots for the ordinance, while 46 percent, or 48,632 voters, voted against it.

Under the measure, residents over 21 years old could possess up to an ounce of marijuana in Denver, which is nicknamed the Mile High City for its elevation.
