Unrestrained by the boundaries of time and place, she is free to go where her mind takes her, and her incredible adventures blur the lines between what’s real and what is imaginary. She has been locked away against her will, but Babydoll (Emily Browning) has not lost her will to survive. Determined to fight for her freedom, she urges four other young girls-the reluctant Sweet Pea (Abbie Cornish), the outspoken Rocket (Jena Malone), the street-smart Blondie (Vanessa Hudgens) and the fiercely loyal Amber (Jamie Chung)-to band together and try to escape a terrible fate at the hands of their captors, Blue (Oscar Isaac) and Madam Gorski (Carla Gugino), before the mysterious High Roller (Jon Hamm) comes for Babydoll. Led by Babydoll, the girls engage in fantastical warfare against everything from samurais to serpents, with a virtual arsenal at their disposal. Together, they must decide what they are willing to sacrifice in order to stay alive. But with the help of a Wise Man (Scott Glenn), their unbelievable journey-if they succeed-will set them free.. — (C) Warner Bros

Creativity just oozes from this designers mind, with his outrageous headpieces, over-exaggerated silhouettes, and elegantly acute attention to detail. John Galliano has been dreaming up some of the most innovative and intricate designs this decade has seen for the House of Dior since 1997.
Being one of my favorite designers, I was shocked to hear that Christian Dior had fired Galliano from his position as head designer at Dior earlier this month. Even more shocking was the reasoning behind it. Word got out that Galliano had rudely made anti-semitic comments to a customer in a Paris bar, late last month. He was immediately suspended. Soon after, two actual videos of him praising Hitler emerged from Paris citizens. In a video from last December, he yelled “I love Hitler…People like you would be dead. Your mothers, your forefathers would all be fucking gassed.” to a group of Italian women.
John denies all allegations through his lawyer and did have fellow designer Patricia Field side with him saying “It’s theater… It’s farce. But people in fashion don’t recognize the farce in it. All of a sudden they don’t know him. But it’s OK when it’s Mel Brooks The Producers singing ‘Springtime for Hitler”
If he is found guilty, Galliano could face up to 6 months in jail or paying over $30,000 in fines. Understanding of past artists, it is typical that with such immense levels of creativity comes slight madness. Unfortunately for Galliano, he has to be held accountable for his actions just as everybody else would. As of right now, John is suspected to be at a rehabilitation facility and Christian Dior is on the prowl for a new head designer. Though he may have deserved to loose his position with Dior, it does not change the fact that Galliano still remains one of the top designers in the world, as well as one my favorites, and I hope that Dior’s new addition won’t be a disappointment.

After crashing her car Sunday, police said a Scranton woman suspected of burglarizing the Dunmore Inn was found to have a sizeable stash of drugs and money hidden in an unlikely location.
According to a criminal complaint:
Dunmore police Officer Anthony Cali asked Scranton police Officer Nancy Baumann to detain Karin Mackaliunas, 27, 1609 Mulberry St., at the scene of a crash at the North Seventh Avenue off-ramp Sunday evening.
After her car was towed, Ms. Mackaliunas was ready to leave the scene of the crash when Officer Cali contacted Officer Baumann and asked for Ms. Mackaliunas to be detained because she was suspected of stealing items from the inn.
After searching her for weapons, Officer Baumann found three bags of heroin in Ms. Mackaliunas’ jacket.
But as the officer drove her to Scranton police headquarters to charge her for drug possession, Officer Baumann noticed Ms. Mackaliunas fidgeting in the backseat of the cruiser.
After a struggle with Officer Baumann during a more thorough search at headquarters, Ms. Mackaliunas asked to speak with Sergeant Michael Mayer and told him she had hidden more heroin in her vagina.
A search of Ms. Mackaliunas by a doctor at Community Medical Center turned up 54 bags of heroin, 31 empty bags used to package heroin, 8.5 prescription pills and $51.22.
Ms. Mackaliunas was charged with possession with intent to deliver a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia and two counts of possession of a controlled substance.
Elizabeth Taylor, the violet-eyed femme fatale whose smoldering talent and eight marriages made her a legend of Hollywood’s golden era, died on Wednesday March 23, 2011 in Los Angeles. She was 79.
The two-time Oscar winner suffered from congestive heart failure and had been hospitalized in Los Angeles at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center since mid-February.
“We know, quite simply, that the world is a better place for Mom having lived in it,” her son Michael Wilding said in a statement to The Times. “Her legacy will never fade, her spirit will always be with us, and her love will live forever in our hearts.” He and Taylor’s other children, Christopher Wilding, Liza Todd and Maria Burton, were with their mom when she died, publicist Sally Morrison said.
Taylor, child actress turned adult Academy Award-winner and AIDS/HIV activist, was also known for her beauty and her love life — married eight times to seven men, with Richard Burton the one with whom she once said the love “was just too much” — as well as her friendship with the late Michael Jackson. While movie critic Kenneth Turan, in an appreciation, remembers the violet-eyed actress as being in “a class by herself”:
Her astonishingly dramatic personal life, characterized by full-throttle romantic love and later recriminations, serious illnesses and tragic deaths, matched the drama of her on-screen roles stride for stride and maybe even bested it.
Her movies — to name but a few — included “Lassie Come Home” and “National Velvet” as a tween ; “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” with Paul Newman; “Giant” with Rock Hudson and James Dean; “Cleopatra,” “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” and more with Richard Burton; and “Butterfield 8″ with Eddie Fisher. “Virginia Woolf” and “Butterfield 8″ had her winning lead actress Oscars.

UFC Fighter, Jon “Bones” Jones got a little more than what he expected during his pre-fight meditation in Patterson, NJ today. While performing his pre-fight ritual which includes meditation at a park, Jones heard a woman scream “I’ve been robbed!”
Jones and his Coaches (Greg Jackson & Mike Winklejohn) went to her aid and began to chase the wanna be robber down. When he was able to catch up to the robber, Jones took his legs out and placed him in what Greg Jackson called as a “funky figure four leg lock.” Once subdued, Jones’ coaches held the theif at bay until local police arrived. Afterwards, Jones tweeted about todays pre-fight event. “It feels so good to help others. It gives me power and energy. I caught him. Coach Jackson finished him. “ According to Jones’ Twitter, the thief smashed into an old ladys car window and ran off with her GPS.
Below is a picture Jones’ driver took while they waited for local police. Jones faces off against Shogun Rua at tonights UFC 128 in Newark, NJ.
The beautiful Porsche 911 Turbo (997) has been beautified even more by the car tuning company Sportec; however, most of the modifications happen under the hood. On the outside the Sportec SPR1 FL looks like a standard Porsche 911.
Sportec was able to squeeze out a whopping 858 horsepower from the 3.6 liter twin-turbo boxer engine. Power is sent to all four wheels; the car rockets from standstill to 62 mph in 3 seconds and goes on to 124 mph (200 km/h) in under 8 seconds and after another 10 seconds it has already reached 186 mph (300 km/h). The high speed journey comes to an end at 236 mph (380 km/h).
The massive horsepower gain comes courtesy of new hybrid turbocharges with a high performance intercooler, a smooth flow air inlet and a carbon fiber ram air induction system, a new exhaust system, titanium connecting rods, and continuous camshaft phasing. To put the power to the ground effectively, a new high performance clutch and a limited slip differential was added.
Visually, the Sportec SPR1 FL Porsche 911 Turbo doesn’t look too different, a new more aerodynamic rear bumper is added with LED taillights and bigger more aerodynamic mirrors are also installed.
