Tonight's episode of "American Horror Story" is going to finally reveal who rubber man is. We see him lurking in the background, but we have yet to learn his story. The show has told us about alot of other characters, but have been very careful with this character which really makes me wonder. Especially since he impregnated the wife and she is now probably caring some type of demon seed. So I am really looking forward to this episode.
Everyone is talking about last night's AMAs and Christina Aguilera. She came out and sang with Maroon 5 on their song "Moves Like Jagger" but instead of listening to the song everyone was noticing how thick Christina has gotten. Even though she has been thicker since the birth of her son, last night she looked like she could be... pregnant. I thought maybe the dress was too tight and made her look funny, but her stomach looked very round and uniform. Rumors are going around that she might be pregnant, but if it turns out that she is not, that will be totally awkward.
If you grew up in the 90's, then you remember shows like Boy Meets World, Beverly Hills 90210, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Family Matters. Perez Hilton.com has compiled some of these favorites and I have to say that we think alike when it comes to old school TV shows.

Here is a Photoshop tutorial I found on alibony.com on adding pixelated borders to any image. Below I have copied the tutorial from their website and added it here for your benefit. I hope you find this tutorial helpful.
Part 1: Create a Dotted Frame
To create a dotted frame for a photo:
Create a new image with a white background layer:
From the File menu, select New, and then select Blank File.
In the New dialog box, enter the dimensions of your photo and fill the background layer with white.
Create a new Levels adjustment layer above the white background. In the Levels window, do not make any changes and click OK. Notice that the adjustment layer contains a layer mask filled with white. We'll use this layer mask later.
Copy the photo and paste it in the layer directly above the Levels adjustment layer.
With the photo layer active, press Ctrl+G to create a clipping group with the Levels adjustment layer below. The layer mask on the Levels adjustment layer will now be applied to the photo.
Click on the Levels adjustment layer to make the layer mask active:
Using the Rectangular Marquee tool, make a rectangular selection on the photo to create the framed area.
Fill the rectangular selection with black. The photo will now appear to have a white rectangle superimposed on it.
From the Selection menu, select Deselect or press Ctrl+D to deactivate the selection. This is important because you must apply the filter to all pixels in the mask.
From the Filter menu, select Pixelate, then Color Halftone.
In the Color Halftone window, enter a radius of 20px and use the default values for the other settings. (For a different effect, you can change the size of the radius):
Press OK to apply the filter. The image will now look like the following:
With the layer mask still active, from the Filter menu, select Adjustments, then Inverseor press Ctrl+I to invert the black and white colors in the mask. The photo is now framed in white. The Layers palette will look like the following:
Optional: To change the color of the frame, change the color of the background layer.
And here is the picture I made using this tutorial. It took me awhile to get this method down, but once you learn it you will want to use it over and over.
This Blast from the Past is in memory of the 90's rapper, Heavy D, who passed away today. Here is his hit from 1994 "Nuttin' But Love." He diad at the age of 44 and the cause of death is unknown at this time. I will always remember me and my mom playing his music in the living room. Awww, simpler times. R.I.P Heavy D!
I personally love, love, love Nickelback. But I have been reading some hateful comments about their upcoming performance during the half-time show of the Detroit Lions' Thanksgiving Day game. Fans of the team and residents of Detroit are furious about the choice to offer the Canadian band the half-time spot over all of the other great Detroit natives. I can understand there viewpoint, but some of the comments are so mean. For example, someone said, "Detroit is home to so many great musicians and they chose Nickelback?!?!?! Does anyone even like Nickelback?." Cruel, right. I really had no idea Nickelback was so looked down upon. Like I said, I personally love them.
Did anyone catch the Lifetime movie "The Pastor's Wife" last night based on the Mary Winkler trial? It starred Rose McGowan as Mary Winkler. And if you don't remember Mary Winkler, she was a Selmer, TN woman who was on trial in 2006 for killing her husband who happened to be a pastor.
The movie took us through the events of the day of the murder, how she was caught, and her testimony on all of the abuse she suffered. Now I have no idea how close to the real thing this movie was, this movie made me feel for Mary. This lady went through so much. Her husband physically, mentally, verbally, and sexually abused her and she took it and stood beside him. And no one wanted to believe a pastor would be like that so they did not believe her side of the story. Not that I am saying it is right to kill anyone, but when you go through hell like she did, you start losing grip. So if you missed it Sunday go to mylifetime.com and look for upcoming airdates.
Is there a such thing? I don't know, but I have a serious craving for pizza and limited resources. Bummer, right? I have every freaking ingredient but the cheese. And it is weird because we never usually run out of cheese in my house. Growing up with a Wisconsin cheese-head as a mother, you learn to really appreciate cheese and other diary products. But I have come to the hard decision to try making a homemade pizza with no cheese(sigh). Looking around on the internet there are a few recipes for cheese-less pizza but they look so foreign, like it is not even pizza. But like I said my mind is made up and I am on a mission to make the best no cheese pizza. I will let you know how it goes. Wish me luck!
DirecTV just sent out an email letting customers know that they have come to an agreement with News Corp./Fox. And they have decided not to interrupt service and are keeping all the channels on air. Woohoo!!! I guess both parties understood that they would have some upset customers on their hands. Now I can sit back and enjoy Sons of Anarchy without worry.
