Sweet and Sour mix
1/2 oz Midori Melon Liqueur
1/2 oz Raspberry Liqueur
1/2 oz Jagermeister Liqueur
Add sweet and sour & Midori to a shaker w/ice, shake and strain. Layer in Raspberry liqueur and Jager. Raspberry should go to the bottom and Jager should float on top. Works best in Martini glass.
TMZ has reported that Manny Pacquiao just got hit with a $10 million lawsuit, but not for breaking anyone’s eye socket … rather, because he allegedly screwed over a company that hired him to record music.
RBM Group International filed a lawsuit today against Manny in L.A. County Superior Court — alleging the pound-for-pound boxing champ signed a contract in 2009 in which he promised to record 12 songs … but never did.
In the docs, RBM claims they wrote Pacquiao a $40,000 check in October of ’09 — which he deposited — in return for the first two songs … but the boxer has refused to record the music.
RBM claims they’re out of pocket $200,000 … and they’ve lost profits in the amount of $10 mil.
November 1st 2010 Kim Kardashian was spotted court side at the Miami Heat vs. New Jersey Nets game and in a risqué garment. Although Kim is known for unique and classy style of dress, this garment took her fashion to a new level. Wearing all black with custom made knee high boots and single long sleeved fur garment. Like Joan River’s stated on Fashion Police, we are surprised PETA hasn’t thrown paint at Kim.
I love fur, and the beauty that comes along with garments. I am neither pro nor against the fur industry and their ways of obtaining fur. I do believe cruelty to animals is not acceptable, but fur has been a main source of clothing for centuries. There is nothing wrong with wearing fur, but you should feel guilty for wearing a useless garment that would only be worn once. Fur is status statement of wealth and beauty, and by the looks of it, Kim is stating that she doesn’t care and will wear something foolish no matter what the cost is. Kim, I love you and your amazing style, but I definitely do not agree with this garment. She should have re-thought this fur piece.
Congratulations to Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull on their F1 championship title. Anyone who was foolish enough to write a script for the finale of the 2010 Formula One season would have been sorely disappointed with how the players treated their script.
After qualifying more or less went the way everyone expected—with the exception of Mark Webber’s failure to outpace championship rival, Fernando Alonso—the race delivered surprises, disappointment and a few moments that left everyone scratching their heads.
The contenders all got off the line safely but were quickly gathered up by the safety car after Vitantonio Liuzzi’s Force India car tried to mate with Michael Schumacher’s Mercedes. While the stewards threw a bucket of cold water over the cars, a handful of drivers crucially came in to get their pit stop out of the way.
This was to prove a pivotal move, and by not following them in Webber missed his last opportunity to put himself in a position to win the championship.
Webber’s weekend is difficult to comprehend. In practice session three, Webber was one-tenth of a second behind his teammate, in qualifying he was a half-second behind and in the race, he was even further off the pace. Conspiracy theorists might just have a case for suggesting that Red Bull knobbled his car.
Manny Pacquiao proved beyond a doubt Saturday night what most people believed coming into his super welterweight championship fight against Antonio Margarito – that size doesn’t matter as much as speed and quickness. And heart. Pacquiao, 17 pounds lighter than Margarito at the opening bell, had too much of everything for Margarito and won extending his record to world championships in eight different weight divisions. Nobody else has more than six.
Pacquiao (59-3, 39 KOs) put on a boxing clinic, dominating the fight from start to finish, landing combinations at will as Margarito could not protect his face. By the end of the fight, Margarito’s face was a bloody, swollen pulp. But he never gave up.
Lamborghini has given the greenlight to the Sesto Elemento (Sixth Element) for a limited series production, according to the French automotive program Auto Moto’s website.
But it will be a very limited series – between 7 and 10 examples will be built. The Sesto Elemento debuted at the Paris auto show with a very impressive, if seemingly excessive, concept show car which featured a naturally-aspirated 5.2 liter V10 engine from the LP 570-4 Superleggera with 562 bhp. The car has a curb weight of just 2,200 lbs due to its extensive use of carbon and carbon-fiber reinforced plastics which includes a carbon-fiber monocoque structure.
The Sesto Elemento comes with a permanent all-wheel drive transmission and a power-to-weight ratio of 3.9 lbs per horsepower. The 0 to 60 time clocks in at 2.5 seconds, while top speed will be well above 200 mph – reported at 217.5 mph prior to the Paris unveiling. The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento will be priced at around $3.5 million.
The iconic Ventura stands out as Hamilton’s both most aesthetically pleasing and popular watch. Featuring an imbalanced triangular case with some sleek aerodynamic touches, it defines fashion and avant guard; Elvis Presley himself wore this watch in his Blue Hawaii movie – one of the first true celebrities to bestow his attention upon Hamilton watches. More recent names include Bruce Willis, Russel Crowe, and Chris Rock.
The Ventura collection offers a surprising variety when it comes to sizes, materials, and movement. Timepieces come equipped with either automatic or quartz calibers (including quartz chronograph), in sizes ranging from 13 to 21 mm, and adorned with PVD or mother-of-pearl. Lizard and leather straps or flex steel bracelets support the cases: Hamilton introduced a rare two-tone strap to echo the dial&case design, and create a matching pattern.
Ventura ladies watches differ both in size and color: considerably smaller, they habitually inject the usually black palette with lighter (often silver or gold) tones, and sometimes modify it altogether. Mother-of-pearl substitutes the sombre – though expressive – black face, projecting a softer attitude and spirit. The protruding crowns play an important role in balancing the asymmetrical lugs and ensuring general design integrity.
Ladies and men’s Ventura watches resist water up to 50 meters and feature Hamilton standard mineral.
Scorpion Motorsports is the new name in manic performance machines. Haven’t heard of them? We hadn’t either. The Miami-based firm builds only 40 of its P6s a year making it one of the most exclusive vehicles on the road. The U.S. government calls it a motorcycle, we consider it INSANE. Why? The p6 is a street legal F1 car that can out run most super exotics. If this doesn’t give your pulse a wake-up call then we don’t know what will. Starting at only $28,000; about half the price of a t-rex, the only thing this Scorpion won’t sting is your wallet.

We are taking it back a bit, about a decade, to the year 2000 when BMW decided to introduce an even better and faster sports sedan known as the (E39 body style) M5. Over the years the M5 has evolved from its historic roots recently sporting a naturally aspirated V8 producing 400hp and the outgoing, but infamous, high-revving V10 that produced 500hp. Now upon the horizon we see evidence of a twin turbo V8 with about 600hp (rumored 2012 BMW M5). The video below is just one moment in time where we all became bug-eyed from BMW’s 400hp V8 powerplant in one of the most sought-after sports sedans on the planet during the early 2000’s. The video below is an epic car commercial, one of the best around, of the E39 BMW M5. Enjoy!
