The 50 Hottest Victoria’s Secret Models

Image
I blogged previously about the challenges that are endemic when it comes to compiling lists of beautiful women (who is on it, who isn't, how high does each one rank, etc.).
A friend of mine thus sent me a link to Pop Crunch of their 50 Hottest Victoria's Secret Models of All Time. I'm not certain if I agree with their ranks. (Amanda Marcum at number 44?)
I'm afraid that I will have to spend several hours reviewing this matter before I can opine further.

Princess Leia Car Wash

Image
One of the most brilliant ideas in months has to be the Princess Leia Car Wash, which benefitted the Make-A-Wish Foundation. The idea of getting one's cash washed by beautiful women dressed as Princess Leia is just awesome.



I'm proud to say that one of my Facebook friends, the eternally awesome Chanel Ryan, one of the Princess Leia models at this event. (She's the blonde in that photo above.) More coverage of it is available over at the Auto Blog.

My Mailman Hates Me

Image
It's official. I'm convinced that my mailman hates me.

The first thing that I noticed when I collected my mail this afternoon was a long overdue check from a client. I've been waiting months for this thing so, as a freelancer, to say that I was excited was nothing if not an understatement.

The second thing that I noticed in my mailbox was the spring issue of Sherman's Travel Magazine. My long overdue check was for a couple grand, and I haven't had a proper vacation in years, so there was a moment when I convinced myself that this was an omen.

The photos of one Caribbean spa after another tempted me, to say the least. My excitement grew when I realized that the check in my hand would actually be enough to pay for one of these trips.

As I continued flipping through the pages of this magazine, I came to realize that I also had a multitude of other options available to me besides the Caribbean.

There was an article about how charming Charleston is.

Another article talked…

Olivan Munn Wants Elephants to Be Free

Image
Olivia Munn, of Iron Man 2 and Attack of the Show fame, has posed in the nude as part of new PETA advertising campaign. The ads encourage consumers to boycott the circus in support of elephants.

There are several thoughts come to mind as see these ads and read the coverage surrounding them.

First, on a serious note, I'm well aware that circuses do have an established track record of mistreating elephants. This isn't just isolated incidents, but there is a clear pattern of abuse. One can find an overview of the issue on-line here.

I applaud Olivia Munn for taking a stand on an issue that she believes in.

As a gentleman pervert, I also want to go on record as supporting any cause that inspires Olivia Munn to get naked. If this fact makes me a pervert, and it almost certainly does, then I will wear that distinction with pride.

However, I have to admit that I almost fell out of my chair from laughing so hard as I read Dan Hopper's commentary on Olivia Munn's campaign and ci…

Boobquake

Image
I don't really want to do this, but I'm heading out this evening. I will visit as many strip clubs in one night as I possibly can.

It's all part of nationwide scientific experiment called Boobquake 2010. I derive no joy from this at all.

Oh, the sacrifices I make for scientific discovery.

Lindsay Lohan Dropped From Movie

Image
It's been confirmed that Lindsay Lohan has been dropped from her upcoming movie, The Other Side.

Of course, it could be said that the most surprising aspect of this story is how incredibly unsuprising it is.

Welcome to the Kam Carmen Blog

Image
It all started a little more than two years ago.  A fellow blogger wrote a post about Kam Carmen and the alleged infidelities in her marriage.

Kam Carmen then made references to said blog on her radio show, or rather to things that were said about her on an unnamed blog. Her attorney then sent that blogger a cease and desist demand.

I got curious. I wondered what would happen if I posted on my blog about the whole thing on this other blog.

Flash forward two years: that other blog is no longer active. The woman who wrote it and I are no longer on speaking terms.

And now, when I look at the report from Google Analytics for my blog, I learn that nine of the top ten internet searches that lead people to this blog are variations of the name "Kam Carmen".


When I started this blog five years ago, I never intended it to become the Kam Carmen Blog. However, it seems more and more like it is.

I think it's because there are a decent number of people in the Detroit area who want to …

Christina Hendricks Doesn't Like Facebook

Image
Christina Hendricks, who plays Joan Harris in AMC's Mad Men, was named the "Best Looking Woman in America" by Esquire magazine recently.

In the accompanying article, Ms. Hendricks opined that she doesn't like Facebook. She believes, "It is an invasion of everyone's privacy."

Personally, it took me awhile to grasp her thoughts. I'm afraid I was too busy staring at her boobs to notice her thoughts on social media in the 21st century.

And once I eventually did notice, I expressed my disappointment in a Facebook status update. That seemed to be the most appropriate avenue for some reason.

I am disappointed that Christina Hendricks will never be one of my Facebook friends.

Worst Television Show. Ever.

Image
Jamie Junger, who was one of Tiger Woods's mistresses, will reportedly co-host a new reality television series with Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, who was one of Jesse James's mistresses. According to its creator, it's all about celebrities who cheat on their loved ones.

The show was created by Bobby Goldstein, who created the original Cheaters. According to the pitch, this show will try to "catch celebrity cheaters with their pants down."

Jamie Junger and Michelle McGee will presumably rely on their experiences being skanky whores in order to better identify the other skanky whores that celebrities might have affairs with.

I understand that everyone in Hollywood tries to transform their 15 minutes of fame into a full-fledged career. However, this is simply too tacky for words. In my opinion, it's an embarrassment to television.

I know that the celebrities in question don't want to have their private lives aired on national television.

I'm fair…

Tax Season is OVER!

I took a part-time job at Jackson-Hewitt in order to earn some extra cash during the tax season. This has meant that, between taxes and my normal work, I've been working 60+ hours every week since January.

Now, however, it's over. I'm back to only having one job to worry about.

And this pretty much sums up how I feel.

Obama Widens Medical Rights for Gay Partners

Republicans and Tea Party activists, as well as one pundit after another on Fox News, have called President Barack Obama's efforts to reform health care an example of "socialism."
It would appear then that he has decided that if he is going to have to listen to such criticisms, he may as well give them something legitimate to complain about. President Obama ordered his health secretary to issue new rules that will be designed to give more rights to same sex partners in the hospital.

Dreaming of Yelp

Have you ever had an experience at a bar or restaurant that was so bad that you spent the whole drive home thinking of exactly how you would trash the place on Yelp?

Well, that was my evening.  The results of that are available here.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm heading out to go spend some time and money at a different bar that doesn't irritate the crap out of me.

Captain America Does Alice

Image
It looks like Keira Knightley is out of the running to play Peggy Carter in an upcoming Captain America movie. According to E!, British actress Alice Eve is currently the front runner to play this role.

I'm a little disappointed that Keira Knightley won't be a part of this project. However, I'm still looking forward to this movie.

Too Sexy

Image
I was flipping through my copy of GQ this week; taking a break from the 5,000 projects that I should be focusing on at work.

Pudgy, badly groomed men are reportedly the new "in thing", at least according to the magazine.

All I have to say is thank God. The winds of fashion have finally caught up to me after so many years.

As my special way of showing gratitude to the editors of GQ for recognizing my newfound status as a fashion trend setter, I would like to share this video tribute with the world.



And yes, I did post the 2007 remix. It's much more fashionable than the 1992 original.

Irony

I think it's ironic that I get much of news from Comedy Central and my comedy from the Fox News Channel.

Tea Party to Party in Northern Michigan

Image
I heard some great news this evening. Hordes of people will soon descend on Northern Michigan, spending vast quantities of money.

Granted, these people will be out of town Tea Party activists, trying to convince people in Congressman Bart Stupak's district that he "sold out." They'll claim that he betrayed his promise to block any health care bill that provides federal funding for abortions.

I've spent some time in Mr. Stupak's Northern Michigan district. There are a lot of smart, sensible people up there. They won't allow one pundit or another to make up their mind for them. I'm sure a fair number of them will actually take the time to read the health care bill to see for themselves that there's nothing it that provides funding for abortions.
Mr. Stupak will be fine and his constituents will be grateful for all of the out of town idiots spending money in Northern Michigan.

iPad Launch

The folks at Apple unleashed the new iPad over the weekend.  It's a cool thing, but not as cool as all of the hype would lead one to believe. The cover of Wired, for example, talks about the iPad being a "laptop killer".

As I listen to this, I can't help but remember all of the buzz from the summer of 2006 when Microsoft's Zune was supposed to be an "iPod killer". Or how, a couple of years before that, the Segway was supposed transform the cities that we live in. Or how Bing.com was going to be a "Google killer".

I'm sure that the iPad will find a  niche in the marketplace and be a profitable venture for Apple Computers. However, the buzz will soon fade. People will keep using laptops just as much as they do today.

Happy Easter!

Easter Sunday is tomorrow. If you've ever wondered what this holiday is like in the Nemecek household, I found this short documentary on-line that explains it fairly well.

Happy Easter, everyone!

Suspected pirates nabbed after skirmish with U.S. Navy ship - CNN.com

Image
I'm convinced that the 5 stupidest people in the world very well may be the 5 pirates who attacked the USS Nicholas this morning.
The Nicholas has a crew of 190 sailors and Marines plus 15 officers. That's 5 pirates vs. 205 highly trained and very well-armed military personnel.
It's no wonder those pirates got their butts kicked.
