December 31, 2010 - Starving for Attention

anorexic model dies
Really Short Story: Eating is a good start to a healthy lifestyle.
Short Story: French model/actress Isabelle Caro, known mainly for her shocking anti-anorexia billboards, has died at the age of 28 after battling the disease since the age of 13. Caro had dropped to disturbingly low weights (as low as 55 lbs.) before trying to draw attention to the clearly potentially fatal disease through shock value by exposing her skeletal frame on billboards across Europe. Of course, no industry is hit harder by eating disorders than modeling, and one can only hope that this will shed some light on the problem, and perhaps awaken some to just how tragic eating disorders can be. However, one has to remember that trying to use logic with someone who thinks not ever eating is a good idea is probably not the most effective course of action.
sir anthony hopkins
December 29, 2010: sir anthony hopkins Day! - More than just Hannibal Lecter...I am pretty sure.
WHY?: He is known as Sir Phillip Anthony Hopkins, Commander of the British Empire (CBE), and I am pretty sure if you call him anything else, he has the right to chop your ear off with a sword, then eat it. Of course, that's just what the look in his eyes seems to say to me. Hopkins, is, of course, known best for terrifying Jodie Foster and millions of people's dreams worldwide through his role as Hannibal Lecter in Silence of the Lambs. Although that is his most well-known role, and the only which has won him an Academy Award, it is far from his only role. I mean, you don't get knighted over in England for one hit movie. That being said, I'm not sure I can name any of his other movies off the top of my head. However, I can tell you that he is also a talented pianist, a one-time alcoholic, has been married three times, and is now a vegetarian who recently lost 80 pounds. Although, I think that's all pretty standard for anyone who officially goes by the first name Sir.

I know it's called the Land Down Under, but really it should be the Land of the Future, because it's already 2011 in Australia.

Billy The Kid is dead, so this doesn't effect him, but I can't imagine The Kid family is all too happy with the decision.

  1. Did you see the photos of that Isabelle? Good God, they are HORRIFYING! It would be like trying to cuddle with a skeleton. A lanugo covered skeleton.
