OH, MY... Little Soulja Boy

From The Cleveland Plain Dealer:
"DeAndre Way is not much of a basketball fan, and he surprisingly has never seen LeBron James play. So when Way saw that James mentioned his stage name, "Soulja Boy," in a recent article, Way was caught way off guard."

From Deshawn Stevenson:
"Lebron James is overrated."

From Lebron James:
"With DeShawn Stevenson, it's kind of funny. It's almost like Jay-Z [responding to a negative comment] made by Soulja Boy. It doesn't make sense to respond."

Jeff Goldbum Drunk

Late last Friday night, my good friend Tony sent me a link to this video of a "drunken" Jeff Goldblum:

...Which of course makes me wonder why Tony was searching out "JEFF GOLDBLUM DRUNK" on the Internet late on a Friday night. He's also responsible for sending me a link to the Glen Danzig Video I featured in January.

If search engines could talk...

The Man Who Asked to be Kicked in the Groin

Man who asked to be kicked in groin gets jail

A man who claimed to be acting out of "curiosity" when he asked seven different women to kick him in the groin was sentenced yesterday to 60 days in jail.

"I cannot be satisfied that you do not presently pose a risk to the community," Justice Bruce Frazer told 28-year-old Jarrett Loft, who had pleaded guilty to one count of mischief to property.

The judge allowed Loft to serve his sentence on weekends so he does not lose his machinist job.

Court had heard on seven different occasions last April and May Loft approached women using trails in city parks and asked them to kick him in the groin.

One of the women, afraid of what the man might do if she refused, kicked him repeatedly.

Loft, an Oshawa native who moved to Guelph several years ago, thanked her and left on his bike.

Yesterday, Frazer appeared frustrated a presentencing report offered little insight into what motivated the crimes.

"It's remarkable for what it doesn't say," the judge said.

Frazer was also concerned with a notation in the report that Loft had taken counselling several years ago and did not feel he needed any more. Jacqueline Coady, Loft's common-law spouse, told the court she is at a loss to explain the man's conduct.

"I can honestly say I find it as odd and peculiar and disturbing as everyone else," said Coady, who was eight months pregnant with the couple's daughter at the time of Loft's arrest.

Coady said Loft told her he developed a "curiosity" after looking at various pornographic websites. She said she had spoken to a counsellor who assessed the man and believed his conduct was a result of curiosity rather than a mental health issue.

Defence counsel Richard Gazzola asked the judge to impose probation with a counselling term.

Assistant Crown attorney Murray deVos suggested a brief jail sentence, calling the crimes "predatory, planned behaviour" in which Loft specifically targeted women who were alone and isolated.

The judge agreed the man's conduct was "disturbing, frightening and has . . . left a lasting impression on the victims."

In a series of victim impact statements, the women describe being disturbed by their encounters with Loft and hesitant to use public parks.

Following the jail sentence Loft will be on probation for two years, during which he must get counselling, not access the Internet and stay away from parks, schoolyards and playgrounds unless with someone approved by his probation officer.

Every once in a while I like to single out something someone took the time to write out and post on the Internet:

ok ill admit i talked trash about this movie when it first was being talked about, and this does look a litte better, but i think its a little dum getting Robert Downey Junior to play Iron Man, because my best friend was just telling me how Robert Downey Junior is a alchoholics in real life, and that iron man in the movie is an alchoholic too. So its a little bit of a cop out for him to play him, its like having someone who really had gamma radiates to play the hulk (aka brian banner). But this movie will sail a lot of tickets anyway because of all the CGI, which i also think is a cop out, make the story about the character, not about fighting and flame throwers, and punching, and cars. But whatever, im not the director, and im probably will go see it anyway, but one of my best friends is a director, and i talked to him and he said he wouldnt have directed the movie, to mainstream for him. thats the type of person we need directing our comic book movies we loving so much, go indy, get back to the roots of it! but im just a geek who needed to vent.

UPDATE! Follow-up posting:
