The hit U.S. reality TV show Jersey Shore has proved so popular that it is now in its fourth series and the binge-drinking, vulgar-mouthed, highly-sexed characters on the show are seemingly as popular as ever.

So it was only a matter of time before the concept was picked up over here and following success of The Only Way Is Essex and the imminent arrival of the Chelsea set to our screens, MTV have looked to the North for their latest reality TV offering.

Pert and a flirt: Holly is the youngest cast member of the latest reality TV show from MTV Geordie Shore

So who are the Geordie Shore cast members who have opted to live together in a bid to bed more randoms and drink their Stateside counterparts under the table?

Meet the youngest member of the crew fake tan addict Holly who introduces herself on camera by grabbing her ample chest and saying: ‘I’m pert, I’m flirt and I’ve got double F boobs.’

Not only does the 18-year-old have a pneumatic chest but her party tricks include downing a shot from her cleavage and according to MTV’s site she: ‘often rounds off the night by getting into a scrap.’

7 Celebrities That Have Gone Off The Deep End

From: http://blog.koldcast.tv/2011/koldcast-news/7-celebrities-that-have-gone-off-the-deep-end/
By:

Have you ever had a close friend you felt you knew… until they did something unexpected and out of character? Did they act so strange that you could never see them the same way again? That’s how Tim feels about Nick in the smart comedy series Old Friends. Nick took Tim’s wife’s virginity in high school, and years later Tim cannot forget it… because Nick won’t let him. Although they’re still friends, it’s awkward.

This dynamic is the same in our relationship with celebrities. We fall in love with the characters they play, and then, a minute later, they’re being jailed for tax evasion. We feel betrayed because we thought for sure he/she was an upstanding taxpayer. Although we’ve become accustomed to seeing our favorite stars fall from grace, it’s always disappointing. However, if we’re lucky, there’s footage we can remix for posterity. Christian Bale, anyone?

Old Friends – Pilot



1. Kanye West

Outspoken doesn’t even begin to describe the talented music artist, writer, producer Kanye West. West began his career as a producer, gaining fame for his work with Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, and Ludacris among others. With the release of his debut album College Dropout in 2004, West earned his acclaim as a candid and freethinking lyrist. He began his decent off the deep end the next year during a live benefit concert for Hurricane Katrina when he surprised his fellow presenter, Mike Myers, the television crew, and the world, by deviating from the script declaring, “George Bush doesn’t like black people.” West later recanted his statement, blaming the heat of the moment and his personal frustrations. In 2006, when West failed to win Best Video at the MTV Europe Music Awards, he went up on stage to argue that his video Touch the Sky should have won. If that wasn’t enough, at the 2009 MTV VMAs, West again walked up on stage to protest an award, this time claiming Taylor Swift did not deserve to win the award for best video over Beyonce. He later apologized to Swift for interrupting her speech.

2. Michael Richards

Standup comedian Michael Richards has a long list of television and film credits, but he’s best known for his role as Cosmo Kramer on Seinfeld. In 2006, back on stage with his stand-up act, Richards gained a different kind of notoriety. During his performance, hecklers in the audience were treated to an expletive-laden rant. Caught on a camera phone by an audience member, Richards shouted for the black heckler to shut up, calling him the N-word and recalling the days when he would have been lynched. Richards apologized after the event, saying that he was trying to defuse the heckling by being even more over the top. Mission Accomplished!

3. Tom Cruise

One of the highest paid actors in Hollywood, Tom Cruise’s star rose in the 1980s with his movies, Risky Business and Top Gun. His longstanding high-profile image was tarnished, however, in 2005, when Cruise appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show and decided to show the audience his love for new girlfriend Katie Holmes. He hopped around the set and jumped on the couch declaring his love. That same year, the action star publicly criticized new mom Brooke Shields for advocating the use of anti-depressants for postpartum depression. Cruise, well known for his advocacy for the Church of Scientology, which openly disputes the validity of psychiatry and psychology, later privately apologized to Shields after publicly criticizing her personal choices. He then –

I’m going to let you finish, but Charlie Sheen sparked the greatest media hype of all time. (That never gets old, Kanye. Thanks!)

4. Charlie Sheen

Film and television star, Charlie Sheen, is known best for his roles in the movies, Major League and Hot Shots, and the TV series’ Spin City and Two and a Half Men. However, he is also best known for his laundry list of arrests, rumored domestic abuses, and court ordered trips to rehab.

Sheen has a long history of making controversial news starting with the 1990 incident when he accidently shot his then fiancée Kelly Preston in the arm. In 2011, Sheen decided to take a hiatus from Two and a Half Men to attend rehab. Following this decision, Sheen spoke out publicly against showrunner Chuck Lorre and his other bosses, calling them “trolls” amongst other insults. In response, CBS and Warner Bros cancelled the remaining four episodes of the season. His ranting gained momentum in the following weeks in news interviews and on Twitter, going so far as to challenge Lorre to a fight and declaring that he would only return to the show if his pay of $1.8 million per episode was doubled. His outrageous statements about having “Adonis DNA” and “tiger blood” earned him the Guinness World Record for the fastest time to reach a million followers on Twitter. (Sheen will earn one million dollars this year from his endorsements on Twitter.) In April, he announced a nationwide tour, which sold out in 18 minutes. Crazy? Maybe. Like a fox? Probably.

5. Mel Gibson

American born, Mel Gibson started his acting career in Australia before returning to America in the 1980s to star in films such as Air America and Lethal Weapon. After gaining a top position as one of Hollywood’s action stars, Gibson stepped into the roles of producer and director, behind such films as Apocalypto and Braveheart. Though a very successful movie star and director, Gibson is also well known for his statements that seem to indicate he’s racist and a homophobe. In 1991, Gibson shot off his mouth regarding homosexual men. At the time, he refused to recant his statement or apologize for his opinion. Gibson claims not to be homophobic and even hosted a seminar along with GLAAD for gay and lesbian filmmakers. He later blamed the incident on alcohol. When Gibson was stopped in 2006 for driving under the influence, he went into an anti-Semitic rant on a Jewish officer. In 2010, he was recorded on a phone conversation, with the mother of his child, suggesting that it would be her own fault if she was raped by a “pack of niggers.” Like the first time, Gibson blames the derogatory remarks on alcohol.

6. Anne Heche

Actress and director Anne Heche began her career on the daytime soap opera, Another World. She moved on to films with roles in The Juror and If These Walls Could Talk. In 2000, after ending a three-year relationship with Ellen DeGeneres, Heche shocked us all when she knocked on the door of a stranger’s house in Fresno, CA, disheveled, scantily dressed, and proceeded to make herself at home. When the police arrived, Heche claimed to be “Celestia,” the reincarnation of God, half-sister to Jesus. She said she had lost her spaceship. She was there to spread love and make the world a better place. In 2001, Heche released an autobiography where she spoke about her terrible childhood and how Celestia, a split personality, was created from that trauma.

7. Sean Penn

Two-time Oscar-winning actor Sean Penn began his career in the early 80s with the films Taps and The Fast Times at Ridgemont High. His marriage to Madonna in 1985 only added to his rising fame. However, as his marriage unraveled, he too seemed to lose it. Penn, a very vocal and passionate social and political activist, developed a tendency to share his political views at the most inappropriate times. In 2002, Penn started to lose credibility when he returned from a trip to Iraq claiming he personally looked for WMDs and did not find any. Later, during his 2006 acceptance speech for the Christopher Reeve First Amendment Award, the actor turned weapons inspector called for the impeachment of President George W. Bush. He went on to declare that leaving Bush in office was tantamount to leaving a semen stain on the American flag. Although Penn is respected as a humanitarian, he does admit to often ruining his good deeds with his rants. In his 2009 Academy Award acceptance speech he said, “I do know how hard I make it to appreciate me.”

We like the fact that this keyboard is full-sized and versatile enough to serve as an input device for both computer and handset.

Have you ever seen a photo move? Artists develop amazing cinemagraphs that take 'stills' to the next level

By Daniel Bates


From: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/

It is, in their own words, ‘something more than a photo but less than a video’.

Two artists have created a new way to to record your special moments - pictures with movement.

The ‘cinemagraphs’ look like still photos but actually feature a subtle area of movement designed to grab your eye and keep you looking. The effect is slightly eerie - but utterly captivating.

Hair-raising: Cinemagraphs may look like stills, but they feature a subtle area of movement designed to grab your eye. These animated photos are the work of Jamie Beck (pictured) and her fellow artist Kevin Burg


Turning a page: The cinemagraphs work by using GIFs, a type of picture format similar to a JPEG which has been around since the invention of home computers but has come into its own with broadband internet

In one shot of a crowded square, bodies are frozen in time, but one man quietly turns the pages of his newspaper.

Another photo of a restaurant terrace is brought to life by the reflection of a taxi going past in the window.

And a picture of photographer Jamie Beck, one of the two behind the project, leaps off the screen when her hair starts to blow in a breeze.

Miss Beck has worked with motion graphics artist Kevin Burg to make the cinemagraphs by using GIFs, a type of picture format similar to a JPEG which has been around since the invention of home computers.

Only now with broadband internet are they bringing it to life with a startling effect.

‘Our cinemagraphs are a way of adding motion to a still image,’ Miss Beck said.


Not as simple as they look: The more complex animated photos take the artists an entire day to pull together

In most cases she shoots the photos and Mr Burg adds on motion-graphics over several hours of painstaking editing.

The more complex ones take an entire day to pull together.

New York-based Miss Beck told The Atlantic magazine: ‘There's something magical about a still photograph - a captured moment in time - that can simultaneously exist outside the fraction of a second the shutter captures.

‘We feel there are many exciting applications for this type of moving image.

‘There's movement in everything and by capturing that plus the great things about a still photograph you get to experience what a video has to offer without the time commitment a video requires.’

She added that sharing websites such as Tumblr have been essential for helping them publish their work and getting them an audience.

Eerie effect: Cinemagraphs are calming to watch as only one area moves - and they are silent
